??????What is Faith?????? Faith is confidence or trust in a person or thing It also is a belief that is not based on proof Faith is a belief in god or in the doctrines or teachings of religion Faith is a belief in anything, as a code of ethics, standards of merit, etc. Faith is a system of religious belief. Faith is the obligation of loyalty or fidelity to a person, promise and engagement. It is the observance of this obligation; fidelity to one's promise, oath, and allegiance.
What I believe about my faith??? -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.
What is a Prayer? -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. 1. Adoration: In prayers of adoration or worship, we praise the greatness of God, and we acknowledge.our dependence on him in all things 2. Expiation In a prayer of expiation or contrition, we acknowledge our sinfulness and ask God for His forgiveness and mercy. 3. Love 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. 4. Petition 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. 5. Thanksgiving Perhaps the most neglected type of prayer is prayer of thanksgiving.
Do You Pray??( How? When? Where?) I pray sometime when I’m stressed or just feeling like it. Where I pray is in my bedroom and at my Grandma and Grandpa’s house on special occasions like Thanksgiving, Christmas or times we are together having a meal. How I pray is sometime I find a prayer to say or I make up my own.

How Faith has guided their life?

How prayer is important to Oprah??? Dear God, I give this day to you. May my mind stay centered on the things of spirit. May I not be tempted to stray from love. As I begin this day, I open to receive You. Please enter where you already abide. May my mind and heart be pure and true, and may I not deviate from the things of goodness. May I see the love and innocence in all mankind, behind the masks we all wear and the illusions of this worldly plan. I surrender to You my doings this day. I ask only that they serve You and the healing of the world. May I bring Your love and goodness with me, to give unto others wherever I go. Make me the person You would have me to be. Direct my footsteps, and show me what You world have me do. Make the world a more safer, more beautiful place. Bless all your creatures. Heal us all, and use me, dear Lord, that I might know the joy of being used by You. Amen.
