Faith is confidence or trust in a person or thing
-I believe in God and Jesus. I believe that they are both real and that they are watching over us. Some difficulties that I have with my faith is that I sometimes believe that their not watching over me when bad things happen but I always believe in God and Jesus. Some times in my life I can tell when God is with me when I was on my way to town and we stopped at the light and while we were waiting for the light to turn green and all of a sudden there was a big bang and we moved up a little bit and we looked behind and I guy ran into us. I could tell god was with us because we weren’t hurt and we survived it so it must have been god and not just luck. All luck is god when someone is lucky I believe that god is just with them helping them feel joy in there life.
-Prayer is a form of communication, a way of talking to God or to the saints. Not all prayers are the same, however. Here are brief descriptions of the five major types of prayer.
In prayers of adoration or worship, we praise the greatness of God, and we acknowledge .our dependence on him in all things
In a prayer of expiation or contrition, we acknowledge our sinfulness and ask God for His forgiveness and mercy.
Prayers of love or charity are just that—expressions of our love for God, the source and object of all love. The Act of Charity is perhaps the best example of a prayer of love.
Prayers of petition are the type of prayer we are most familiar with. In them, we ask God for things we need—primarily spiritual needs, but physical ones as well. Our prayers of petition should always include a statement of our willingness to accept God's will, whether He directly answers our prayer or not.
Perhaps the most neglected type of prayer is prayer of thanksgiving.
Oprah Winfrey (born Orpah Gail Winfrey; January 29, 1954) is an American television host, actress, producer, she is best known for her self-titled, multi-award winning talk show, which has become the highest-rated program of its kind in history. She has been ranked the richest African American of the 20th century. Winfrey was born into poverty in rural Mississippi to a teenage single mother and later raised in an inner-city Milwaukee neighborhood. She experienced considerable hardship during her childhood, including being raped at the age of nine and becoming pregnant at 14, her son died. Sent to live with the man she calls her father, a barber in Tennessee, Winfrey landed a job in radio while still in high school and began co-anchoring the local evening news at the age of 19. Her emotional ad-lib delivery eventually got her transferred to the daytime talk show arena, and after boosting a third-rated local Chicago talk show to first place she launched her own production company.
Since 1994, when she abandoned traditional talk-show fare for more edifying content, and in 1998 she began 'Change Your Life TV', Oprah's most significant role has become that of spiritual leader. To her audience of more than 22 million mostly female viewers, she has become a post-modern priestess—an icon of church-free spirituality."
