To Whom Should I Pray and Why? S1 Ep9
Season 1 Episode 9 – To Whom Should I Pray and Why?
Introduction to Episode: During this episode, a crucial question is discussed, ‘to whom should I pray and why?’ This question raises a lot of questions and controversy among Christianity or people of different faiths. This episode is not to disrespect other denominations or make anyone feel unwanted. This episode is designed to teach and reproved in love. We have to remember that the name of the Father is hallowed and should be set apart. We ara a people redeemed but the blood of Jesus Christ that was given by the Father and carried out through the Holy Spirt. When we pray, it is the Father that gets first recognition, and in the name of the son, Jesus Christ and sustained by the Holy Spirit.

Episode Summary: As we turn to scripture, Jesus teaches us to pray to the Father in Matt. 6:9. In the garden before Christ was betrayed, He prays directly to the Father. While on the cross Jesus prayed a prayer asking his accusers and murders to be forgiven. The Westminster Shorter Catechism #101 ask us ‘For what do we pray in the first request?’ Answer: In the first request (hallowed by your name) we pray that God will enable us and other to GLORIFY HIM in everything he uses to make himself known…
