    A certain man prays in the following manner to the Father. "Heavenly Father; I ask you in the name of your son Jesus to keep me from accepting and believing false teachings". Do you believe this prayer is a correct way to pray? Do you I fact pray in this manner yourself? Comments?

    What we're asking for.

    I am asking this question about this man's prayer in order to get other people's opinions about what the man is asking. Obviously as he is asking to be kept from false teachings. But is this a valid prayer? Question arises; do we not all pray a prayer something akin to this prayer?

    I think it would help considerably if more people would pray a prayer along those lines and actually mean it. The majority of Christendom is just interested in passing down its traditions and its theologies regardless of what the Bible has to say.

    It was called by someone on this board the other day something along the lines of a hand-me-down religion. That's what we have today and it is terribly sad :(

    We should all be Truth seekers and when we are introduced to something that needs to be changed we should make the appropriate changes.
