If you have ever had any doubt as to what the American government is currently doing, all you need to do is take a look at Senate healthcare bill and this chapter in the Bible. We are specifically given warning with regard to marriage. The beginning of the Chapter states as follows:

Verses 1-6:
Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:
For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.
If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained.

You do not tax people at a higher rate because they are married. This is teaching against marriage by telling people to live in sin, in the healthcare bill. If you are married, you will be taxed at a higher rate. If you live in sin and are not married, you will be rewarded.

In all the healthcare garb, we have heard about the government choosing to tell us the way we should eat in order to be able to receive care. This is wrong.

The reason our food is hurting us is because people who eat do not receive the food as though God put it on their plates and served them himself. If God did not allow you to employed where you are and your employer to pay you, you would not have that food to eat. God deserves our appreciation for everything we receive. Too many people ask the wrong things for 10 minute prayers. Prayer or requests of God to sanctify our food for our bodies and giving thanks to Him for providing it does not take 10 minutes.

As a plea to all my friends, readers, and others, now and in the future. Read your Bible for yourself and determine for yourself what is going on. Anyone can draw the lines between the Bible and what is going on within the world and in America right now. That is all I ask. Read it for yourself. Don't make a showing out of prayer. Ask God for what you need, talk to Him about your day and do it, please, within the instructions provided to you through the Bible. The Bible is our guide for life and our bodies will cease to suffer as soon as we start obeying God.

I know I mentioned prayer. I did this because it is done so wrongly and people are taught poorly from the church what is expected when they pray and how Jesus Christ himself said we should pray.
Sets out our guidline on how we should pray.
Verses 1-15 (becasue there are many verses here, they all will not be repeated here word for word)
1 take heed and do not your alms before men, to be seen of them or you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.
2 when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a tumpet before, as hypocrites do in synagogues and in streets. They do this for their glory, and have their reward then.
3 when though doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right doeth:
4 that thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.
5 when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the concerns of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily, I say unto you, they have their reward.
6 but when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, when thou hast shut thy door, pray to they Father which is in secret; they Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
7 when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: they think they shall be heard for their much speaking.
8 Be not like unto them: your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
9 pray this way: Our Father which art in heave, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy Kingdon come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory for ever. Amen
14 If ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

When most pray in public, it is usually as a showing of the Christian faith and beliefs, etc. However, it is for that show and purpose. Jesus Christ tells us this is wrong. He tells us in this passage that we are wrong to pray lengthy prayers.

How will thoughts and actions on your own life be changed from placing thought on these verses? How do you see our American government right now? How do you think and feel about the Senate healthcare bill? Our first priorty is to God, our families, ourselves and others. If we are wrong in what we do, how then can we talk to others about it? We must be right and me go forward boldly.

God Bless America,
God Bless You,

  1. You said, "The reason our food is hurting us is because people who eat do not receive the food as though God put it on their plates and served them himself."

    I challenge you to go for three months eating only high-fat, high-sodium, high-cholesterol fast food, to pray piously before each meal, not changing whatever exercise routine you may (or may not) have, and see if you don't become more unhealthy.

    You can pray over a Big Mac as much as you want to, but if you eat that crap every day, you're going to get fatter no matter how many prayers you say.

    By the way - since you mention that people don't pray "correctly", and offer advice on how to pray - AND you're a woman - here's some rules you left out:

    From First Corinthians Chapter Eleven:

    Verse 4 - Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head.
    5 - And every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head—it is just as though her head were shaved.
    6 - If a woman does not cover her head, she should have her hair cut off; and if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut or shaved off, she should cover her head.
    10 - For this reason, and because of the angels, the woman ought to have a sign of authority on her head.
    15 - but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For long hair is given to her as a covering.
    16 - If anyone wants to be contentious about this, we have no other practice—nor do the churches of God.

    Sandy, do you wear a veil, or head-covering when in church, or praying? If not, you're doing it wrongly. If you want to continue attending church you need to either shave your head, or cover those lovely curls of yours. The Bible says so.

    Regarding "what to expect" when you pray, the Bible is clear:

    In John 14:12-14, Jesus says: "12 Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I go to the Father. 13 Whatever you ask in my name, I will do it, that the Father may be glorified in the Son; 14 if you ask anything in my name, I will do it."

    In Mark 11:24, Jesus says: "Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours."

    James 5:15 "And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up."

    In Matthew 21:21, Jesus says: "I tell you the truth, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and it will be done. If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer."

    Nowhere in the Bible does anyone say, "sometimes the answer to prayer is no".

    In Matthew 17:20, Jesus says: "For truly, I say to you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you."

    It's made quite clear: Pray for anything you want to - no matter how outrageous - if it doesn't come true, it's because you don't have enough faith in Jesus.
