    For some of us, maybe. Not for you. It works like this: You choose God and His ways and the reward is remaining in God and His ways.

    You reject God and His ways and the reward is that you do not have to join God or walk in His ways. Free will.

    But if God wants me to walk in his ways, as you put it, why would he put another choice in there? It's not free choice if one choice is a sort of punishment.

    That's STILL got nothing to do with the question. I made no reference to what any "prayer says".

    What part am I nothing getting through to you? This is getting tedious now. Your question is based on a stipulation that there is no restriction and that is what I was addressing. There is no restriction on God's powers, but how am I to explain our current situation when he's already demonstrated his powers by destroying everyone and every creature in the world except for the chosen. I can't speak for those peoples nor the ancient peoples, but have an idea of what they prayed for. They prayed for God's will to be done just like we do today haha. I can't believe I have to explain how it works just because you're a Pogo. Thy will be done means that we continue to live with our free will. Remember what free will caused? Sin. And it led to our destruction. What we learned from the Bible is there can't be good without the bad, so we will be led to our destruction once more. We pray that God's will be done so that we live to see another sunrise.

    While I'll pray that God's will be done and that one day you'll understand the answer :bigbed:.
    Except I think that day will be the one where the sun won't rise for you anymore. Instead you will be rudely awoken :dev3:.

    As for those still trying to figure it out, the prayer is simple and asking for the basic things.

    "Our Father, Who art in heaven
    Hallowed be Thy Name;
    Thy kingdom come,
    Thy will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us this day our daily bread,
    and forgive us our trespasses,
    as we forgive those who trespass against us;
    and lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from evil. Amen. "

    So don't be a Pogo and fall asleep on the job, but pray often and at least once daily.

    Another one who fell asleep at the switch. Why is it the non-believers who think the believers are the one who made things up? How can it be made up when the Bible explains God's word and how the universe and earth came to be. Furthermore, science backs up the Bible while we discovered that science does not back up evolution. Only those who have 'faith' and believe in Darwin's book, evolutionary thinking (which Satan handed down to Nimrod) and the fake science of ToE have been led down the path of manufactured belief. It's :bs1:. It's people who believe caca :poop:. It's the path to :dev2: god of the world and prince of the power of the air.

    Much further out than inevitable
    Halowe'en's thy game;
    Sky King has come and Wilma's done
    Uncertain as it is uneven
    Give up this day hors d'oeuvres in bed
    And give us back our truss wrappers
    As we forgive those who have dressed up against us.
    And need us not enter inflation
    Butter, liver, onions and potatoes...

    sssssssssss.....

    For wine is a shingle, and a mower
    and a story for your father.
