1 George Washington: Thanksgiving Note Ps 50:14 DocTrinsograce Wed 11/27/13, 12:50pm 238545
  "Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor, and Whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me 'to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.'

"Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, Who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be. That we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks, for His kind care and protection of the People of this country previous to their becoming a Nation, for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of His providence, which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war, for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed, for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted, for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge and in general for all the great and various favors which He hath been pleased to confer upon us.

"And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions, to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually, to render our national government a blessing to all the People, by constantly being a government of wise, just and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed, to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shown kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord. To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and Us, and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He alone knows to be best." --George Washington (October 3, 1789)
2 Who di God listen to in Old testement? Answer OT general jlhetrick Mon 12/2/13, 10:20am 238568
  There wasn't only one person that God listened to. God heard the prayers of people and responded to them in the OT days as well as NT. My understanding of Scripture is that God never does what we want unless what we are asking for is in perfect agreement with His will. We do not persuade God to change His mind.

I have heard people speak of the account in Genesis 18 and 19 as God being "persuaded" by Abraham when Abraham advocated for the City of Sodom and "bargained" with God asking If God would spare the city if a certain number of righteous people could be found there. God had told Abraham that He would destroy Sodom due to itís sinfulness.

Abraham began the bargain by asking if God would spare the city if 50 righteous people were found. God did agree to spare the City if 50 righteous were found. On first reading it may appear that Abraham persuaded God to change his mind. However, we know that God knew exactly how many "righteous" people were there. Apparently Abraham assumed that 50 might be a high number in the sinful city so began to bargain the number down to 45, 30 and all the way down to 10, a safe number to include Lot and his family.

Abraham wanted to save his nephew Lot and Lotís family. What we finally see is that God used the opportunity to show Abraham (among other things) that God's will in fact would be done and no changing of God's mind would occur. God did destroy Sodom though He did spare Lot and his family all but Lot and his daughters. We can conclude, from the wider context of Scripture, that God intended to spare Lot and in fact was the one persuading Abraham to pray for it hence, the visit to Abraham in the first place.

5 prayer shawl Answer Acts 11:19 EdB Mon 12/16/13, 7:24am 238688
  First a prayer shawl is used to cover the head of a person that entering into the presence of the Lord to pray. This was a Jewish custom that requires the person should cover his head to pray.

This practice was carried forward into the Catholic church also.

A prayer cloth is taken from Acts 11:19 where handkerchiefs were taken from Paul and given to the sick and the sick were healed.

Some teach it is a touchpoint of faith that allows a persons faith touch something tangible thus increasing their faith.

However it is very easy to allow oneself to treat a prayer cloth as a talisman, or with an unstated idea the power comes from the cloth instead of the Hand of God.

This can be very dangerous because people are putting their trust into what they can see or handle instead of having faith.

It also comes very close to putting something other than God ahead of God.

Some use prayer clothes as a way to convey one's assurance that they are praying faithfully for another that isn't able to be present.

  I have been posting a gratitude list for a few weeks now and last nights list i said that I'm grateful that i am starting to understand what i'm reading in the bible. so when my friend commented that she was proud of me, i wondered if it could be taken as boasting. under her comment i posted this is only Gods doing, not my work but a gift from God. in my list i said thing about my understanding and the gratitude i have for other believers that i don't have to be perfect in my prayers or how I ask questions, that no one is good at something when they begin. i just hope this is ok. that posting things being unsure if they are correct or if they will be taken the right way. i'm considering keeping a private log of my journey. but on the other hand i want people to see Christ working in me. advice would be appreciated

14 does God hear the prayers of unbeleivers Note Bible general Archive 4 COG39 Thu 01/9/14, 11:39am 239001
  To clear that up. I believe the first prayer God hears is the prayer of salvation. We do not have a born again spirit to pray to God with until we pray the prayer of salvation. ;)
15 does God hear the prayers of unbeleivers Answer Bible general Archive 4 DocTrinsograce Thu 01/9/14, 6:45pm 239019
  Hi, Olive...

Welcome to the forum!

Please see Psalm 94:9; Jeremiah 23:23-24...

Nevertheless, perhaps the more important question is who hear's what the Word of God says? Our Lord Jesus stated, "He who is of God hears the words of God; for this reason you do not hear them, because you are not of God." (John 8:47 NASB)

In Him, Doc
16 Can a woman be a pastor of a church? Answer NT general justme Sun 01/19/14, 8:39pm 239141
  kburt: Welcome to the Study Bible Forum. Many
liberal denominations have woman pastors.
Biblically my belief is no. Often women are forced into positions
because men are not there or men won't face up to
the responsibility God gives then.

My advice is go very prayerfully on this, or anything
else in choosing the right man for a pastor.

18 Baptized by Holy Spirit? Note Matt 3:11 lionheart Sun 02/16/14, 2:54pm 239561
Prayer and careful study of the Scriptures are the best way to deal with issues such as these. Emotions not guided by God's Holy Spirit can be real killers, a hard lesson learned by me over the years. Thanks for being one of those who have brought me back to earth when I have so much needed it.

In Him,
19 Baptized by Holy Spirit? Note Matt 3:11 EdB Mon 02/17/14, 7:39am 239574
  While I agree we don't know how Fee came to his conclusions, I do agree we must not allow denominational doctrine to blind us to the truth of scripture.

My intention was to be complimentary of Fee for being consistent with his understanding of scripture and I that is a virtue.

Yes by all means I agree we all should be in prayer for those that read scripture and apply a twisted or misunderstanding to the truth scripture contains.
20 Glory to God Note Ps 87:3 DocTrinsograce Wed 02/19/14, 3:08pm 239590
  "He loves the church, which often goes by the name of the Zion; and therefore He has chosen and founded it, and took up His rest and residence in it; and He loves her gates, or public ordinances, and them that attend them; the work done by them, their prayers and praises, and exercise of graces, and every act of religious worship: and though He loves the dwellings of Jacob, the private habitations of His people, having fixed the bounds of them from eternity, and delighted in these habitable parts before they dwelt in them; though He loves the persons that dwell there, and what is done in them, their closet and family devotion yet He prefers public worship and ordinances to them, where He is more openly worshiped, and by more; and which makes for His manifestative glory: hence follow the words, Glorious things are spoken of thee, O city of God." --John Gill (1697-1771)
