Prayer Requests on Facebook
Not much to say about this… just pathetic. These people believe that god answers prayer… and he decides what prayers he answers. I guess the more people you get yelling your requests to god, the better your chances… wow. I don’t see how so many people believe in an omnipotent god that sees the future and controls all things, but yet somehow asking him for help on a test or for a raise at work is somehow on his to-do list.
Don’t they realize that god probably doesn’t check Facebook much (maybe Twitter). The bible says, “Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer; and listen to the cry of my supplications.” Psalm 86: 6. It doesn’t say he will read your messages on Facebook or, “The more ‘friends’ you have praying the better chance you will have getting your prayers answered”. Does this mean that people in poor countries with no internet access are subject to waiting for god to get through his notifications first?
Of course, these same people believe “For this reason I am telling you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe (trust and be confident) that it is granted to you, and you will [get it].” Mark 11: 24. But, they don’t seem to mind when the majority of their prayers never get answered. They just praise god for the ones that, by random chance or their own personal hard work, come to fruition. Sad.
You’d think that with the amount of time that these people spend posting their prayer requests… they could just PRAY MORE!!! Maybe these site administrators have an e-mail to god all typed out and ready to send. They just don’t know his e-mail address. If anyone finds it, let me know. I have a few questions for him (and a funny picture of him and Zeus playing a game of “touch the tips”).
