"When he calls to me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honour him"The idea being that Jesus and God listen to everyone, all the time, not just in times of need. But the way it reads it is as though people who pray will get their wishes granted, and, well, if they don't it can't have been part of God's plan.
"This is an amazing promise. The God who created the universe is inviting each and every one of us to talk and learn from Him one-on-one. He wants us to bring our requests, thanks, hurts and anxieties to Him without fear. He wants to build a deep and loving relationship with us. He wants to support us through the toughest of times and the best of times."And it goes on to say how God wants to have a personal relationship with each of us, so long as we believe in him, and pray to him for guidance, forgiveness and mercy, and to not cast us into the pits of Hell. So if we don't pray to God, we don't offer ourselves as servants and we deny God's existence, God is not with us, even though God loves us all? And what about all the other of God's children, the ones he created into a Muslim or Hindu family? Are they also not saved? Too many questions for just a mini blog.
