The Power of Prayer and Belief in God and Heaven

by: Gabriel Holman

There is one question that comes to light from human beings everywhere. Be them Catholic, Christian, Buddhist, Muslim or any other of the hundreds of religions out there. The question is both a personal one, and a social one. "How do I know God is real?" We know God is real when we experience His 'dimension'. The seemingly invisible touch which you feel when it happens. God wants us to know that He is real. One way you can find out for sure is through a fun little experiment. Join me for a second and say this prayer:

"God, I really want to believe in you, but I need a sign. Please God, I am asking you to show me you are real, otherwise I feel I may lose you"

You don't have to tell anyone this prayer, and it can be in your own words. If God doesn't exist, then He can't respond to anyone's prayer. If He exists, He will show you in a way that you will understand (and you alone). For this is the beauty of God. This is how he knows you, and you know him.

The Bible states that God has placed eternity in the hearts of the sons of men (Ecclesiastes 3:11). You have an intuitive knowledge in your heart that there is "something else out there" and that when you die you will not cease to exist - and not just as a memory for others to remember you by.

Right now you may believe in your mind and with part of your heart that you have well-grounded scientific or other reasons to deny the reality of your eternal existence, but God has made sure that something in you knows that this is not the truth. And this is why you are here reading this, correct? We try to educate people here at god Australia to try and make anyone with doubts in their hearts and minds, believers.

God is real. And he will touch you if you let him in. Just ask the question.

Scripture Prayer: Prayers of Faith and Power
Prayer is part of the culture - the Christian culture. Unfortunately, prayer that is cultural and not based in faith sounds and feels empty. At some point, people praying in this fashion begin to question the whole idea of prayer.

Jesus is that friend you need at all times, in times of joy and peace or in times of sorrow and disappointments, etc. He is always there for His friends.
