willieH: ...greetings, Tank!
Never let any man take away the power of prayer from you, friend or foe, cast their advice to the dust
No one is trying to "take away" anything from anyone! ...just noting that which IS
... according to the statements made in SCRIPTURE...
The Scripture notes that GOD WORKS ALL
THINGS -- Eph 1:11
-- and that GOD noted END to BEGINNING the things NOT YET DONE -- Isaiah 46:10
-- what does that leave out, Tank? Is not "prayer" that you intend to engage. ....a "thing" not yet DONE
Or a "work" (doing, or matter)?
for it is of Satan, after all what are you if you cannot communicate to your God?
It is not up to YOU to determine something as "of satan"... I don't see that GOD has appointed you this AUTHORITY.
And besides, no one has suggested that we not communicate with our God... It has just been noted that the HEAD
is that which notes the actions and doings of the BODY
... And that those actions and doings were LONG AGO noted by YHVH
... they were become "actions and/or doings"... by Him... so "when" they are manifest, ...they occur according to that proclamation HE has already made of them...
The examples of how GOD works in His Creation and IN His BODY are given in the natural for us to observe (i.e. our own bodies and that which surrounds them)
Do you percieve that...
...It is your FEET
which decide WHERE
your body shall GO
...Or that your EARS
you shall HEAR
...Or your HANDS
you shall TYPE
on your computer keyboard?
If you cannot see this (then, at least for the moment), you cannot...
No offense intended to you brother Tank, ...but that you cannot "see" this in this moment, does not therefore mean that it is not so, ...nor that it is of "ADVERSITY"... any more than a blind man shall in his blindness, determine the pattern on your shirt as UGLY and ADVERSE to his eyes (which cannot "see")...
