How Do You Pray?

How Do You Pray?

Muslims have to follow rituals created by man. Are these instructions in the Quran?
Bow like this, prostrate this way, recite this, repeat that over and over again, sit like this, fold your arms like that…. Careful, if you miss out anything, allah will reject you.

Are you sure you’re facing the right direction? Forgot to wash your nostrils correctly? Start all over again! Ooops did you fart? Allah does not like that. He also hates people yawning. Make sure you don’t look up while you pray or he will take your eyes away and make you go blind.

Dont you think Allah is acting like a slave master waiting to catch you the minute you want to come to pray or worship him? In an instant he can throw you into his jahannam. Did you know that even though Muhammad promised paradise to Abu Bakr, his father-in-law and best friend, said that even if he had one foot in paradise, Allah can cast him into hell.

I have GOOD NEWS. The true God is a LOVING FATHER. The minute you decide to come to Him, His arms are open wide to receive and welcome you. You dont have to wash your hands or your feet or take a specific posture before Father God. The only posture He looks for is humility in your heart.

I can stand or sit or kneel or bow or fall face down prostrating on the ground, He accepts me. I can pray and worship my Father whether I’m driving or jogging or working or taking a shower. I can face any direction and He doesn’t mind. He doesn’t turn me away even if I fart. Why? Because He is a Father to His children. Does your human father reject you when you fart or yawn? No, because he is good and he loves you.

Isn’t Allah even as good as your weak human fathers? Doesn’t he even have half the genuine love that your father has for you?

God my Heavenly Father loves me. He loves you too and longs for you to accept Him as your Father too.

 

Your Night Of Destiny

Your Night Of Destiny

This week marks the holy week of Ramadan. Today is the 27th of Ramadan which is the holiest night for Muslims.

It is known as the Night Of Destiny, or Laylat al-Qadr (in Arabic: لیلة القدر‎‎) as many Muslims pray to God for mercy, forgiveness, blessings and salvation.

Last week, a Muslim asked me “how to be saved?”.

There may be others asking the same questions like “how to have forgiveness of sins.” etc.

I am going to write out a prayer for you below.

You can pray sincerely from your heart to God and He will hear you.

This is between you and God alone. No one else. This is not about religion. Not about Christianity or Islam. This is about you entering into the Kingdom of God. I’m not talking about conversion. I’m talking about transformation – from death to life.

If you think what I’m saying is rubbish and you dont believe it, that’s OK. I have written another prayer that you can use, at the end of this post.

I’m sharing with you what I believe right now, so that on this Night Of Destiny, you can fully trust in God to give you a wonderful eternal destiny.

None of us can can reach God by ourselves. God is completely holy. We are utter sinners. Jesus was the only one without sin. No one can come to God, unless we come through Jesus. He is the way. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life.”

If you want to enter into the Kingdom of God, Jesus is the door.

If you believe that Jesus came to save you from your sins and to give you eternal life in heaven as your final destiny….Pray this prayer with sincerity in your heart to God….

“My God, who created the whole universe, You created me. I come before you sincerely on this

Night of Destiny and open my heart to You. None of my thoughts, words and deeds are hidden from You.

I’m praying to You, O God, that You will forgive all my sins now. Cleanse my heart and give me Your

righteousness so that I can have a clean heart and I can be accepted before You. Let Your presence be

in my heart so that I can know You and follow You. I receive Your peace, love and joy. Thank you for

a new life that You have given me, an eternal life as You have promised. I receive Your salvation

through Jesus, the Way, The Truth and the Life.”

 

If you have prayed this prayer, it is between you and God. You don’t have to tell anyone publicly if you don’t want to. But I encourage you to share privately with someone you trust. If you want, you can send me or someone else a private message, and we can guide you further to know even more and to answer your questions.

How to pray this prayer? Just go to some place where you can be alone. It can be in your bedroom, so you can talk to God alone in prayer. You can kneel or prostrate. God is able to hear and answer your prayer today.

Perhaps some of you are already laughing or mocking. It’s your choice to reject the message of salvation on this Night Of Destiny.

 

If you are one of those, then here is another prayer for you to pray to God:

“O God of Abraham. You are the God of all truth. I choose to believe in Your truth alone.

I think that all the things that I have read here are lies, so I reject them, because I don’t want

to believe any lies. But, God, if anything here is the truth from You, please show it to me clearly

because I do not want to miss any blessings from You. Reveal to me in my dreams. Even when I sleep,

I open my spirit to you so that You can speak to me and teach me Your truth.”
