Forgiveness

I cite here an article about a person who has a part in Dante's Devine Comedy.  It is a book about a guy who travels through levels of Hell, Pergatory, and Hevan.  At one level the main character sees two men whith their bodies stuck together, one forever eating the brain of the other. How terrifying an image.  Non-forgiveness is terrible.

Jesus taught that both believing and forgiving are key to effective prayer. Why do you think they are important?

It is important because in His teaching are that of Love. How can you believe God and not doing what God commanded you to do. If we do not forgive others, how can we expect God to forgive us?

Believing and Forgiving
Jesus taught us that believing and forgiving are the key to effective prayer. First of all it is very important before asking anything to God by prayer and supplication that we should have to clean ourselves from our transgressions. By asking forgiveness to God from our sins, but how God forgive us if we don`t forgive others.. ``If we forgive we will be forgiven and what ever we ask when we pray and believe that we receive, It shall be given.

Believing and forgiving
It is important that both believing and forgiving are key to effective prayer. We should believe that God will hear our prayers and answer us. We should also believe that we have received whatever we you pray and ask for. Jesus also told that forgiveness is very important in our life. If we forgive the mistake of others, God will also forgive us. And also hear our prayers. Hence Jesus taught that both believing and forgiving are key to effective prayer.

They are very important, in starting the prayers we must first adore and prase god, call his name and gloryfy us with holy spirit, prasing and adoring him with all our mights, with all our souls and with all our hearts, then secondly pray for our sins and ask for forgiveness because he is merciful, pray for our mistakes and shortcomings in our relatives or neighbors and ask pardon with them, confess our sins to god and begging for mercy, then thirdly pray for thanksgiving to all he made wonderful to us and fourthly we pray for the supplication like jesus said on this lesson for today, have faith and believes all things whatever you pray and ask, you have recieved them and you shall have them, this four kinds of prayer were very important to us, as a christians we also have role in god not only by praying but also we serve him.

The Withered Fig Tree

As they passed by in the morning, they saw the fig tree withered away from the roots. Peter, remembering, said to him, "Rabbi, look! The fig tree which you cursed has withered away."
Jesus answered them, "Have faith in God. For most certainly I tell you, whoever may tell this mountain, 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' and doesn't doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is happening; he shall have whatever he says. Therefore I tell you, all things whatever you pray and ask for, believe that you have received them, and you shall have them. Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone; so that your Father, who is in heaven, may also forgive you your transgressions. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your transgressions."
