~ "Only..."

"For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time." (1 Timothy 2:5-6)

I know I have said it before, and there is a strong possibility that I will say it again - pray ONLY to God, and ONLY through Jesus!  He is the ONLY one who will intercede on your behalf.  I can't stress enough how important this is!!!

God's Word, the Bible, tells us this over and over again.  Praying to dead people is like praying to a brick.  It won't hear you and it can't help you.  There is ONLY one living person who can hear our prayer and take it to our Father...Jesus!!!  Reciting scripted prayers on string of beads or spending nine days reciting a litany over and over for "special intercessory graces" isn't going to get you anything.  Prayer is a conversation with God.  It is not an obligatory custom required to gain special grace.  It's personal, it's heartfelt, it's sincere.

Put down the book, the beads, the devotion to the dead and pray to the ONLY one who matters...pray to God, and pray through the ONLY one who can hear you...Jesus.
