How Christians Ought To Pray | No Hypocritism

Published

 5 – And when thou Prayest, thou Shalt not be as the Hypocrites are: for they love of standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets that they may be seen of men
Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

6 – But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

7 – But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do; for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

8 – Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

9 -After this manner pray ye: 
Our father which art in heaven
Hallowed be thy name

10 – Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done on earth
as it is in heaven

11 – Give us this day our daily bread

12 – And forgive us our trespasses and we forgive those who trespasses against us

13 – And lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from all evil
For thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory for ever amen.

-Mathew 6:5-13

As a Christian you should avoid the mindset of doing good things for the sake of the praises you get from people. When you do,  you have already gotten your reward.So expect nothing from God Almighty, who searches Human heart. So you cannot hide your thought from God. Avoid going out in the public to pray, displaying how good you are with prayers. That is Hypocritical.
If you are to be in a prayer and it is a public thing. Simply focus your mind on God and do not go about showing you have a talent in praying. That is nothing wrong with public praying but instead the mindset is what determines, whether it is wrong or right.

When you pray give thanks to God FIRST. A sample was given above, after that you can now go ahead with any other. Just like in a letter you do the pleasantries first, So it s in prayer to give thanks first.
Do not expect God to answer your prayer of forgiveness, when you have not forgiven other. That is a way of showing pride, you cannot forgive but expect God to forgive you. So the best thing is to just avoid being in issue with anyone and then ask God for forgiveness.
Also, carelessly repeating words in a emphasizing way is not Going to move God, So hit the nail, make your request because God already knows your needs. He is the Master-Planner
Cheers

Lagos tenant uses Landlord’s apartment to dupe house appliance vendors of N50 million

Read this narration by twitter handle, @Wenogetjob, which tells of how he eavesdropped on a couples conversation of a duping man. The man rented a house for 2 month, bought expensive items worth up to N50 million on credit. Left the rented apartment with all the appliances he has not paid for, after winning the trust of the sellers.

Hey peepz, I have a gist tho I don’t know if it’s true or not..But I will say it Sha. I was just walking on the street 2receive fresh air when I saw a couple. d man was telling his wife about an incident. I kukuma slowed down an walked behind them to hear d full gist.

It was more like a scam story. A certain man walked up to a Landlord in our area and requested to rent his apartment for 2 months, with the excuse that he was traveling to Canada and just came to Lagos for the Visa Processing.. They agreed on 150K.

  What they want you to believe about the Jesuits

The man paid and took ownership of the apartment.He then went out to Vendors in town and negotiated to buy expensive items on lease. With installment payment plans.. He was said to have collected home appliance worth N50,000,000 from various vendors.

He then took them all to the apartment one by one to build trust. At least once they know he lives there, they can easily come around and pack their stuffs if he defaults, these people didn’t know what would hit them was going to be deadlier than Tsunami.

As agreed with the Landlord, the man packed out even earlier than expected… Left with all the items, of which he had not finished the payment..and the Landlord was so happy to have struck a better deal He immediately rented out the apartment to another family.

One by one, the creditors began to come in and same story was relieved to them.. Some fainted, some threatened hell fire …. To cut the long story short, Baba Ijebu was arrested alongside the new tenant.. You know Naija now… #POLICE  no wan hear wuen

They were only saved after a Landlord intervened. He is a legal practitioner and took up the case. But sincerely speaking. I wonder how some people feel at rest knowing fully well their victims would suffer.  I guess it all centers on lack of conscience. This is bad #dojon
