“One thing I’ve learned about relationships is that I tend to become more like the people I spend the most time with”.
Motivational speaker Jim Rohn famously said that we are the average of the five people with whom we spend the most time.
Considering the above statement by a person who is generally promoting personal experience and scientific information, we need to accept that if we spend a lot of time with God, we will become like Him and be able to live a life of health, wealth, peace and power on this earth even as did Jesus

Prayer is another way of saying; ‘speaking to God’. In many respects, there is a likeness between praying and our conversations with our fellow humans.
We would hold a conversation with a child in one way and an adult in another. We adopt one approach when discussing a serious matter and another in telling funny stories. Continue reading “What is Prayer (Part Two)”
