I need plenty more belief, plenty more power of prayer and more Holy Ghost with me. Please pray also that God gives me gifts of God's grade.

The Patriarch replies:


Somehow I think you are pulling my leg with this message, I wonder why that is?

But let's suppose there is a slim chance you are serious. You are not the first to submit a prayer request to this site, and I doubt you will be the last.

A couple of days ago, I watched the film Bruce Almighty again. It really did not stand up to a second viewing, but Morgan Freeman plays what one might wish a God to be, should a God exist. One of the messages of the film is that God really can't be bothered with prayers when the solution is within the person's own power. The God of Bruce Almighty is in favour of personal responsibility/

And that is my message to you. Instead of asking God, take responsibility for yourself.

Stop praying for help. Take action and assume control of your own life.
