Hillary Clinton Announces Support For Gay 'Marriage'
Hillary Rodham Clinton's embrace of gay marriage Monday signals she may be seriously weighing a 2016 presidential run and trying to avoid the type of late-to-the-party caution that hurt her first bid.

Her chief Democratic rivals endorsed same-sex marriage as much as seven years ago, and it's widely popular with Democratic and independent voters.

By supporting gay marriage a full two years before the next presidential primary warms up, Clinton may render the issue largely settled among Democrats, should she decide to run. ...

There are a lot of verses that could be referenced. Our Lord said, when (not if) you pray, pray after this manner, we are told to pray without ceasing (I Thessalonians 5:17 and to pray for one another (James 5:16) You would be hard pressed, I believe, to look at the Old and New testaments and not believe that people who prayed believed it made a difference. They are numerous examples where God changed His actions (He didn't destroy Israel, He healed Marian, he spared Nineveh, He spared Zoar, He restored life to the Shunammite women's child, He allowed Hannah to conceive Samuel,Peter was released from prison, etc, etc)

Matthew6: Jesus tells to pray: "Pray then like this: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.Your kingdom come, your will be done,on earth as it is in heaven.Give us this day our daily bread,and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil."

Phillipians 4: "[D]o not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And uthe peace of God, vwhich surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

You present interesting questions.

Dreams.... I seldom dream anything coherant and rarely remember any for more than a few seconds after waking at this point of my life. Most prevalent over my lifetime was the ability to leap and glide/fly long distances before landing on my feet again. But I have no idea what they mean, if anything.

Women.... God's creation and made appealing to the opposite gender for a divine purpose. The older you get, the broader the range which will appeal. However, there is only one ordained to be a lifetime helper. This may be an area where daily prayer is in order.

Prayer.... I am not aware of a specific command to pray but I do believe God wants us to talk to Him and ask Him for help just as natural parents like to hear from their children and help and comfort them. Prayer need not wait until bedtime but can be done anytime the mind can be cleared. However, I also believe we need to balance our prayers with thanks for the multitude of things He has already done for us which can easily be taken for granted. For example, when is the last time you thanked God for raising up Godly men like John Wycliff and William Tyndale for their part in giving us a bible?

Just my thoughts. I always appreciate your posts. God bless, Chris.

Hey Christopher000 that was a lot. All of us agree temptation is not sin, so a look at a woman could not be the same thing as lusting. It was Daniel who was praying for 21 days. God said there was none like Job in all the earth, a man who feared God, shunned evil and God called perfect and upright. Yet, we see he had to make a covenant with eyes not to lust after a woman. I think an overriding principle would be to not make provision for the flesh to fulfill the lust thereof but to put on the Lord Jesus Christ and through the Spirit to mortify the flesh. Walking in the fear of the Lord all day. Being armed for conflict, watching and praying against temptation are all important. Memorizing and meditating upon the Word of God is a big tool we are given. Most people would admit we all need to spend more time in effectual fervent prayer. Luke 18:1-6 tells us importunate prayer is acceptable to God. Dreams are only important to our pentecostal friends. Luker is much wiser and precise than I and will probably have a much better answer. Hope my hodge podge answer is helpful.

I have to admit that I don't pray often enough probably because I am a staunch monergist and I know God's will, both secret and revealed.... active and passive, will be done in the time He has appointed.

This is interesting because I always feel like I don't pray often enough, even though I pray everyday, or for enough. I get stressed because there is so much to pray for but don't know how to pick and choose. I find myself praying for basically the same things and people each day; throwing something extra in once in a while.
I feel just the opposite of you in that I feel like I should be praying much more than I do and will be held accountable for not praying enough, not praying for the right things, etc.
Also, I often wonder how long I need to pray for any particular thing. Like, is once enough because God hears it, or do I need to spend my lifetime repeating
it? I know that when David(?) was fasting, he prayed for 21 days. Right after, an angel showed up saying that he was delayed because he had to fight the Prince of Persia(?) demon. This is what makes me wonder how we are to know how long we are to pray for someone or something. What if David had stopped praying after 20 days, etc?

...this post was suppose to be a question to Lurker about ine of his posts ..boy, did this take a left turn and I usually wouldn't care to get so personal.

Do you all, men and women, mature Christians, still have bad thoughts, dreams, etc, that you have to deal with?Situations which get to the point where you have to actually ask forgiveness? I don't have filthy thoughts anymore, and I really don't even lust anymore, but there are plenty of other things that I might dwell on for too long, like anger towards someone, etc.
Since I was delivered from everything, I haven't lusted at all, thank God, but I will admire women because I think many are beautiful, some much more so than others. These, I may look at longer, or take more than one look...never with any kind of lust, believe it or not, but just to look. I wonder every time if I am sinning even though I'm not imagining being with them or anything like that.
I just often wonder if mature Christians such as yourselves, still battle daily with sin or are your sins few and far between now?

Just a general statement first: I 've noticed for some time now that whoever posts up scripture in their responses always receive much more welcoming, upbeat replies. I am not at that level yet but hope to join the club someday soon. Until then, I ask questions, never to argue, disagree, or incite conflict, but simply to understand. I had the crazy thought that you were all once me. I may be feeling a little cranky this AM...it will pass. Well, I had a dream about another woman last night. Nobody I had ever met but I was more than attracted to her. Earlier in the evening, a few girls (strangers) were at the house and I felt an Instant "love" connection when I saw one of them. I thought, wow, another time, another place...she was beautiful, petite, and seemed to have a sweet heart. Anyway, I kept my thoughts to myself, and she never looked at me with interest. I went to bed and laying on my side, woke up to someone pulling me from behind, I turned to see it was her. That was the end of the dream and nothing happened. The problem is that I'm married. I don't often remember my dreams, but when I do, they're often not great ones. The reason I get so bothered is because I always wonder if the dreams are tests that are telltale signs to God of where my heart is at.(? )This

Yes, prayer can be a mystery. I pondered the providence of God with Jesus command to pray for things we need, etc. and ran into a real roadblock. I then concluded I would simply do what He said to do and then the rest is His responsibility; not mine. So, if I pray for someone to be healed and they aren't, then I did what I was supposed to do and I then simply left the rest to him. The fact they weren't healed "wasn't my responsibility", it was His. My responsibility was to pray! Deu 29:29 is sort of key to my thoughts.
Praying is my duty; answering is His and His alone.
That was a long winded way of saying we agree on this issue as well.
Deu 29:29 The secret [things belong] unto the LORD our God: but those [things which are] revealed [belong] unto us and to our children for ever, that [we] may do all the words of this law.

It is well!

Fellow ember, thanks for the input. I agree with everything you wrote. I might just add that even though we don't have revelations of who might become saved in the future, that wouldn't stop me from praying for their destruction if I thought I was being led to do that. If they are to be saved, God would know that and just ignore me. Like I have said many times on this topic, I use imprecatory prayer rarely and always add something like; "Lord if this person isn't one of Your elect ...."
We probably agree on this issue or at least mostly agree.

Gal 5:12 I would they were even cut off which trouble you.
Clearly, Paul had no reservation desiring the destruction of those who were enemies of the truth he preached.
Further, Paul was inspired by the HS to write what he did so he most likely knew, by revelation, that these certain men of James would never be called to repentance but were headed to perdition..... something we don't know about present day enemies of the truth.

Hey Pilgrim. Yes you are correct, it is a tricky issue. Your last sentence puts it into perfect perspective. We are to pray that God's will is done. If it is His will, then He will answer in His perfect timing and manner.
Some additonal thoughts on prayer written long ago is below.
"Ideally" when God’s children argue with Him, murmur against Him, complain about His actions or inaction’s, seek to share His glory, seek selfish things from Him, try and manipulate Him, ask Him for worldly things instead of relying on Him, pass negative judgment against Him, ad infinitum, we will “always” lose the battle. God will never give in since His love and wisdom are infinitely above our love, wisdom, thoughts and nature. Now, what does this really mean except that we have actually “won” the battle. The only way we lose is if God lets us win.
Yep, that's about it, Frank. The remnants of the sinful nature are still present, and I know from my own experience that it is quite feasible to rebel against certain things concerning our wonderful Father; yet he deals with them as he knows best, not condemning, but sometimes utilising Fatherly displeasure. Praise God!

Turnin' in.

Thanks for the additional ones; more to ponder. You and I both agree that whatever the full meaning of these scriptures are, they can't and won't contradict Jesus commands to love our enemies; those that are harming us and persecuting us as individuals. The truth will be a wonderful harmony between all the scriptures.

What a wonderful thing the word of God is. I love pondering His commands and exhortations as you do.
