Re: prayer requests - South Korean economy
- Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
In response to some of your e-mails, prayer is good under some
I found Christians detestable if they go to morning prayer 2 hours a
day so that their children can go to Harvard University or Seoul
National University. Can they pray that their children know God if
they are going to pray this hard? Can they spend 10 hours a week
with their children by teaching them instead of praying during that
time? While they can spend 10 hours with their families, they can
still pray 4 hours a week at church. Can they spend their time
wisely? I know many pastor's kids, who fell away from God because
the pastor and his wife did not spend any time with their families.
Spending time with the family is as important as morning prayer.
When I was young, my father and mother spend those 10 hours
with me and younger brother. There is nothing wrong with prayer.
The amount of prayer is just absurb and wrong.
For me, I never prayed 14 hours a week that I survive in the
Samsung company. I simply work. I never prayed every day for
wife. I never prayed every day that I will earn more money. I pray
every day for my family's salvation. I pray every day for repentance.
I pray every day for things eternal. Maybe, I will pray once a week
things temporal. Well, actually, I stopped praying for my family
every day last year after I broke up with my ex-girlfriend. When I
really thought there is no hope for my non-Christian family, God
is answering my prayers with "yes." Maybe, my parents were
impressed by my faith that I still wanted to marry a Christian wife
even though my ex-girlfriend has hurt me and our family a great
deal. My parents lectured me for a whole week saying that I should
consider marrying a non-Christian girl when my Christian ex-
girlfriend is no different from the world. Since I was too stubborn
in terms of my faith, I think my parents gave up arguing with me
by going to church. [break...] I don't know why my parents go to
church for the first time. I guess it is a miracle from God. Thing for
sure. It is not my prayers.
Even though I never prayed for a job, job transfers or money every
day, God answered "yes" many times immediately and quickly.
When I do not idolize my prayers, God started to answer my
prayers with a "yes." It seems strange that God honors my selfish
prayers but answers my unselfish prayers extremely slowly or not
