So anyways, I used to pray. But the more I pray, the more I realized, bad things happen to me. I’ve been hit by a series of real bad events lately, one right after another. So now, I’m all paranoid. I just flatly don’t pray anymore, and if I do ask for something, I keep it secret. Scare incase those others (evil spirits) hear or see me. I believe they are all around me, watching me constantly and my every move. Even as I type now. I’m real scare. I don’t bother worshipping God anymore, and things are calmer now. But it just seems God don’t care. My life is but a game to him.

Anybody out there have any bad experiences too when praying?

The more you pray the more bad things happen?

a) you are a lukewarm; not with god, not surrendered, just a free-at-hand fornicator and so on. Is this so? Have you surrendered in spirit and in truth, to god
saying: lord I here give my self into your hand and continue from there. You will feel to get married and out of fornication, then baptize, never to fornicate again.

b) you have done the surrendering but are being tried by God ( he says as silver is tried) before he accepts you. So it works. God is not some coin machine where
you insert coins and receive a chocolate bar: you must first sacrifice! in hart turn to him, decide to turn from fornication and pray for a wife (meantime you pay
proceed fornicating because you obviously need a woman, but not after baptism), love your neighbour etc. as you know. Not the lukewarm for they are dead.

c) Evil spirits hearing you: satan is right there when you get involved with god en u need not whisper or not even talk for him to hear you - he knows what you think
before you ask, as does God.

Read the below lines which I give you, for they are from God, not from me. And do stay away from churches - people like you they look out for to add to their
farm of lukewarm fools.

Any christian that asks does receive: they only feel like asking that which they need. Christians are baptized or they are in repentance. There is no other grade
of christian such as devout and not devout - that does noet exist for there is only one type - Christian!

What Cliff said is not all hogwash like 15th Dalai Lama thinks. There are things that hinder our prayers. There are reasons that God lets things happen.

Don't be bigoted toward Christianity, but I guess that's the way the mainstream is headed these days.

Before you jump to any conclusions, you should perhaps review his website, the one he is peddling in every post.

No, its not the mainstream, if it was the mainstream we wouldnt be having these silly arguments about religion and faith and its place...the "mainstream" is drenched in religious, xtian in the Wests case, ideas and superstitions...

Nothing hinders prayer. What hinders anyone is the small superstitious mind of those who make outrageous claims as to the powers of prayer.

I was shocked when I googled this topic. I only got as far as "Why do bad things happen wh" when google filled in "When I pray" for me and offered me a multitude of websites to choose from with people asking the very same question that you (the original poster) and I both have.

I can't believe how common of a question this is, and how very real the problem is in other people's minds... not only my own. It looks like it has been 2 years since the OP asked the question. I would be interested in knowing how old he or she is, and if they feel any different about the subject today.

I'd like to dismiss the sense of superiority that the above Bible beater Blogger guy has, because he honestly sounds more obsessed with his own ritcheousness, and what he believes is your lack of ritcheousness, than he is with God. But then, that's kind of where my mind goes too when I pray and something bad happens as a result... Like, I must be doing something wrong, right? Why would God punish me for praying, for trying to get closer to Him?

Does God hate me? Does God enjoy screwing with me? Did I do something to deserve this? I mean, I think that the easy thing to do would just be to become a non believer... To not believe in God at all. But it isn't a disbelief in God that is at question. SOMETHING is screwing with me, testing me, beating me down, putting me through trials. There is no part of me that has ever lost belief in that.

I can't really agree with the more optimistic posters either, though. I'm not praying wrong, I'm not selfish in my prayers. Sometimes when I am in distress, I cry out to the creator for help just to be pummeled with more problems. It isn't the way I pray that is the issue and there doesn't seem to be a silver lining either.

I've just slowly allowed myself to be beaten down by circumstances, and I've just learned to deal with it with numb acceptance. It's hard to muster a prayer when I know what the results will be. I've never been able to enjoy anything for long. Any time something wonderful happens to me, something equally awful happens soon after. It has made me paranoid too.

I don't know the answer to your question, but I do know very real it is. I hope you find peace.

Well, fool! And a fool you are, because you ended your nonsense answer with 'I don't know the answer to your question.'

What you reveal about your praying already tells me that you aren't a Christian at all! You probably think you are, but you are far, far away from it. Read my site: http://www.theholychrisitanchurch.com

Only a bare idiot would answer a question he can't answer.

I gave the very clear answer to the question: God is not some machine wherein we place a coin and receive goodies. We are tried and his tested and, providing pass his trails, we are allowed in: now tried as silver is tried! So says God, so who are you? Anyone who opposes me is opposing God and the Gospel.

REMEMBER: I need not one penny of you people who read and listen to what I 'PREACH (mimic)' so I don't preach a Gospels of accommodation but the Gospel of Jesus, as it is written and shall always stand. Neither do I have to be a hypocritical fake-friendly person, speaking to you with polished politeness to charm you. Have a nice day - and do read my site: all the pages, please.

Hebrews 12:6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.

7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?

8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.

Revelation 3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

Do you think they may be lessons?

I keep praying for healing of my deafness and it doesn't happen.
But if I didn't require hearing aids I wouldn't be able to claim a pension, I wouldn't be able to work in a 'supported environment' for disabled people, and be pushed back into the fulltime work force and stop providing mega peer-support for disabled people.

Hmmm...remember if you are praying for others or for yourself please make note "may HIS will be done on earth as in Heaven. Don't be selfish when praying. Pray with thanksgiving and faith, knowing that Our Father knows best. Also, beware of demons lurking around. The more you pray and get close to Our Father the more the enemy will try to scare you away. Looks like the enemy is getting his way by scaring you away.
Do your best to be sin free....even a negative thought can be an entry way for a sneaky little devil to reek havoc in your life.
Remember to claim the blood of Christ over you and you have the authority to rid yourself of demons in the name of Jesus Christ. I found Demonbusters.com online the other day and it seems legit. I'm (unfortunately) a Seer and I find it to be more of a curse than a blessing. Learn how to pray correctly. There is a right way and a wrong way. Its black and white, really. Humans make the gray and deceive themselves that the gray makes sin okay......
