A facebook user simply identified as Okechuckwu Moses has taken to his facebook page to share his believe on Christian religion, belief and prayer.
In his words he said that prayer is a “total waste of time” he also tagged prayer as “talking to oneself.
“Prayer works for you?
The bible tells it many many times:
Matthew 21:22 And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.”
Mark 11:24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
John 14:13-14 Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it Pray in Faith
Mark 9:29 And he said to them, “This kind cannot be driven out by anything but prayer.”
Acts 9:40 But
Peter put them all outside, and knelt down and prayed; and turning to the body he said, “Tabitha, arise.” And she opened her eyes, and when she saw Peter she sat up.
James 5:14-16 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up…
Ok’ those authority you have through prayer right?
OK, it’s comforting to believe that the creator of the universe is on your side and He’ll bend the rules of nature to alter the course of the universe to satisfy your whims if you just kneel on the ground, put your hands together and ask him to; or maybe refuse to eat your food and shout on him. That belief ignores the cold, hard reality that prayer has an equal success rate as random chance. “Will manager pay my salary tomorrow?” I pray, he may, he may not. “Will manager pay her salary tomorrow?” She did not pray about it, he may pay her tomorrow, he may not pay her tomorrow.So?
The power of prayer has been tested more than any other experiment in history, and it has consistently proven itself to be useless. You may want to try the authority you were given on John 14:12-14. I mean, exercise it, it’s your right as a Christian.
And what are those things people usually go on their knees for? I’ll health, Joblessness, Barrenness, Search for husband or wife, Debts, Success, Vices, selfishness, greediness etc. You have the capacity to manage any of those problems. Answers for all your prayers or questions where given to you the hour you where conceived.
Praying equates to nothing more than talking to yourself. You heard me well!
Prayer isn’t powerful. It’s crippling. I said so!
Everything that has ever saved a human’s life and made our lives easier has been accomplished by logic and hard work. Not by any so called power of prayer. E no dey work! Egbuzila oge gi.
If you want your life to be better or the lives of all the starving children in Africa to get better, then spit in your hands, rub them together and then put them to work, he he! Stop letting prayer hold you and humanity back.
If God ever owe you a pin, He is only waiting for you to accept responsibility for using the tools you’ve been given. Every positive thought is a silent prayer that can change your life.”
