The Power of
Prayer and Belief In God and Heaven
by Gabriel Holman
There is one question that
comes to light from human beings everywhere. Be them
Catholic, Christian, Buddhist, Muslim or any other of the
hundreds of religions out there. The question is both a
personal one, and a social one. "How do I know God is real?"
We know God is real when we experience His 'dimension'. The
seemingly invisible touch which you feel when it happens.
God wants us to know that He is real. One way you can find
out for sure is through a fun little experiment. Join me for
a second and say this prayer:
"God, I really want to
believe in you, but I need a sign. Please God, I am asking
you to show me you are real, otherwise I feel I may lose
You don't have to tell
anyone this prayer, and it can be in your own words. If God
doesn't exist, then He can't respond to anyone's prayer. If
He exists, He will show you in a way that you will
understand (and you alone). For this is the beauty of God.
This is how he knows you, and you know him.
The Bible states that God
has placed eternity in the hearts of the sons of men
(Ecclesiastes 3:11). You have an intuitive knowledge in your
heart that there is "something else out there" and that when
you die you will not cease to exist - and not just as a
memory for others to remember you by.
Right now you may believe
in your mind and with part of your heart that you have
well-grounded scientific or other reasons to deny the
reality of your eternal existence, but God has made sure
that something in you knows that this is not the truth. And
this is why you are here reading this, correct? We try to
educate people here at god Australia to try and make anyone
with doubts in their hearts and minds, believers.
God is real. And he will
touch you if you let him in. Just ask the question.
