    It's a concept, not real. Christianity is a scam

    Christian Prayer is act of talking to God, letting him know your worries and cares and seeking the answers to your prayers through daily living.

    Not exactly, He's not some genie to grant your every desire. Sure those are important; but its also important to show some respect to the maker of everything. He is your best friend and BFF's talk to each other about their day and stuff like that.

    Christian prayers are diverse: they can be completely spontaneous, or read entirely from a text, like the Anglican Book of Common Prayer. The most common prayer among Christians is the Lord's Prayer, which according to the gospel accounts (e.g. Matthew 6:9-13) is how Jesus taught his disciples to pray.The Lord's prayer is a model for prayers of adoration, confession and petition in Christianity. A broad, three stage characterization of prayer begins with vocal prayer, then moves on to a more structured form in terms of meditation, then reaches the multiple layers of contemplation.

    @laurensulli, @math_crasher, @panlac01, @Tombrokaw, @vikayefremova, @benjamin2123, @M_Vamshi_Kumar_Reddy, @khadeeja, @tuttifrutti As stated in the bible, we are asked to pray to our Heavenly Father directly in the name of Jesus Christ, not to Jesus Christ directly. Christ states that the time has come for true worshipers to worship the Father (as Father desires it) John 4:23 - But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. When the apostles asked Christ how to pray, Christ teaches them to pray to "Heavenly Father" Luke 11:1-2 - 1 And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples. 2 And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. Jesus instructs us to pray to Heavenly Father in the name of Jesus Christ. John 15:16 - Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. Saying "Lord, Lord" to Christ is of little worth if you are not doing the Father's will. Matthew 7:21 - Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Christ tells us to pray to our Heavenly Father, and without using fancy, repetitive or poetic words to impress others. Matthew 6:6-9 - 6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. 7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. 8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. 9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. *All scriptures are found in the 1611 version of the King James Version of the Holy Bible.
