Dissecting Praying

Original Text: Dissecting Praying


In my perspective praying alone as a member of any religious faith is therapeutic and bliss. To prove the benefits of prayer I am going to contrast and compare the praying format of Muslims, the followers who are Christian Catholics, and Sikhism brethren. Based simply comparing origins of each religion they are so unalike to remark praying similarities: Guru Nanak in India constructed Sikh religion (1469 AD), Muhammad was born in Mecca (570 A.D.), and Catholics exclaim their denomination started 30 A.D. They have no precise similarities as religions if an “outsider” were to note the traditions and rituals. Catholicism praying is dependant on Matthew 6 and the Rosary. Sikh brethren are straightforward that they pray at dusk and night in the temple. Islamic men and women are peculiar compared to the other two faith in that they prayer five times daily.

Catholic churches have a casual set-up for prayer by repeating a portion of Matthew 6. In the framework of Matthew 6 (King James Version Bible) Jesus exclaims to observers to pray like this:

“Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed by thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And led us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For this is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. A’-men.”

When I had been studying to receive Confirmation in the Catholic Church we would recite this prayer together in the “Young Peoples Group”. Although I have gone astray from the Catholic Church because I have negative views of the doctrine this prayer still is biblical.

Revised Text:

In my perspective, praying alone as a member of any religious faith is therapeutic and blissful. To prove the benefits of prayer, I am going to contrast and compare the praying formats of Muslims, Christian Catholics, and Sikhism brethren.

The origins of these religion they are so unalike that the praying similarities are remarkable: Guru Nanak in India constructed the Sikh religion in 1469 A.D., Muhammad was born in Mecca in 570 A.D., and Catholics claim their denomination started in 30 A.D. They have no precise similarities as religions if an “outsider” were to note the traditions and rituals.

Catholic praying is dependent on Matthew:6 and the Rosary. Sikh brethren are straightforward, in that they pray at dusk and night in the temple. Islamic men and women are peculiar, compared to the other two faiths, in that they pray five times daily.

Catholic churches have a causal set-up for prayer by repeating a portion of Matthew:6. In the framework of Matthew:6 (King James Version Bible), Jesus instructs observers to pray like this:

“Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed by thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For this is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. A’-men.”

When I was studying to receive Confirmation in the Catholic Church, we would recite this prayer together in the “Young Peoples Group”. Although I have gone astray from the Catholic Church, because I have negative views of the doctrine, this prayer still is biblical.
