Prayer 2.0; Reference Points

This is essentially a webliography of sites that I came across whilst researching things to do with Prayer.

http://truthseekingsouls.org/ is an interesting site with loads of information on all kinds of things to do with spirituality, this article; http://truthseekingsouls.org/2007/03/29/prayer.aspx has some nice extracts from Wikipedia. Also I liked this on “Dharma”

“Dharma” means “protection”. By practising Buddha’s teachings we protect ourself from suffering and problems. All the problems we experience during daily life originate in ignorance, and the method for eliminating ignorance is to practise Dharma.

Practising Dharma is the supreme method for improving the quality of our human life. The quality of life depends not upon external development or material progress, but upon the inner development of peace and happiness. For example, in the past many Buddhists lived in poor and underdeveloped countries, but they were able to find pure, lasting happiness by practising what Buddha had taught.

Iann Schonken is an evangelist blogger. This article begins with;

What is Prayer?

(a) A reverent petition made to God
(b) An act of communion with God
(c) Communication with an all-knowing, ever-present, almighty and loving God
(d) Adoration; Confession; Thanksgiving; Supplication (earnest petition)

It seems strange to me that it is a “reverent” petition – the definition of reverent appears to be Godly, so that makes it a Godly petition made to God. English I guess.

This one is a comic site, the commandments 2.0, the first three;

  1. I am the LORD2.0 your God who brought you out of the land of web1.0, from normal colours and no tags
  2. Thou shalt have no other gods before Me (except good friend – Google)
  3. Thou shalt use “2.0” or “beta” and pastels colours on your every new website project

http://cauley.preachersfiles.com/prayer/ has bible lessons and a wealth of in-depth information on the how the Church of Christ view prayer. Not exactly for me, but certainly interesting.

Yeshuablog says;

Many people question what is prayer because they desire to pray, but don’t know how. Consider these tips:
Praying is like talking to your best friend! It’s easy to talk to someone when you know they love you unconditionally!

Different faiths number them different. We base many of our laws on them, yet won’t display them in a public setting. If you can only learn one, learn the first one and the others will never be a problem.

The sections on manhood and adultery seem especially confusing!
