Photo Speaks - Importance of Prayer Books
The other day, I received an email forward which was depicting the importance of our Prayer Books. I found it very interesting and sharing it with you all. While coming down to office, I happened to notice a car with it's owner having the same ideology. A unique one. I thought I must give him some due credit.
Many times, we have seen, especially in India, dashboards and front panel of automobiles filled with several pictures and idols of gods. We see the same drivers swearing and cursing the fellow drivers and bullying each other small vehicle and pedestrians on their way. All this they are doing with one or more witness readily availabile in front and nearer to them.
What to say? Give our gods a break. Make a habit to pray during the regular prayer times and let your dedication to your family, work and society be your offerings. Do it diligently. Why not give it a try. The almighty god needs a break. He has been busy working for us all these years. Now, let him focus on someone else with more pressing problems.
Have a great day ahead.
CELL PHONE vs. Prayer Book
I wonder what would happen if we treated our Prayer Books like we treat our cellphone?
> What if we carried it around in our purses or pockets?
> What if we flipped through it several time a day?
> What if we turned back to go get it if we forgot it?
> What if we used it to receive messages from the text?
> What if we treated it like we couldn't live without it?
> What if we gave it to Kids as gifts?
> What if we used it when we traveled?
> What if we used it in case of emergency?
This is something to make you go.....hmm.. .where is my Prayer Books? Oh, and one more thing. Unlike our cell phone, we don't have to worry about our Prayer Book being disconnected because God already paid the bill.
Makes you stop and think 'where are my priorities? And no dropped calls!
ESSENCE OF OUR RELIGIOUS BOOKS AND PRAYERS
> Whatever has happened, has happened for good.
> Whatever is happening is happening for good.
> Whatever is going to happen, it will be for good.
> What have you lost for which you cry?
> What did you bring with you, which you have lost?
> What did you produce, which has destroyed?
> You did not bring anything when you were born.
> Whatever you have, you have received from Him.
> Whatever you will give, you will give to Him.
> You came empty handed and you will go the same way.
> Whatever is yours today was somebody else's
> Yesterday and will be somebody else's tomorrow.
SO WHY WORRY UNNECESSARILY?
