Lessons from the mass inductrination day 3 held on the 13th October 2021 via zoom
It was a great time listening to great teaching from bro Eli. A lot of lessons were learnt and I just want to share few from the lessons.
We should avoid repetition when praying. When you are in a storm, even the smallest prayer will be held by God. The rosery is not a teaching of Christ.
Matthew 6:5-8 KJV
And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are : for they love to pray 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.  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.  But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do : for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.  Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
Praying should not be done to show off to men. It should be a private matter between us and God. It is prohibited to show off when we pray.
Mark 11:25 KJV
And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
There is a provision in the Bible to pray standing but not like the hypocrites.
When praying to God, if we can knee down, we should.
Acts 20:36 KJV
And when he had thus spoken, he kneeled down, and prayed with them all.
Matthew 26:39 KJV
And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt
Jesus fell on His face when He prayed.
