Prayer is just a key to unlock things from the spirit realm into the physical. It has little to do with religion.
God fearing is an act (commitment to the will of God)It is a kind of relationship you develop with God whereby,
no matter your situation His will still remains your priority.
When you are praying,you are full of expectation whereas commitment is awaiting Gods request/need.
In order words if you are a God fearing person you are expected to be prayerful as well, so that as you are
giving you are also receiving.
The facts remains that not everybody that prays well that has good relationship with God.Praying is not enough reason
for someone to be called righteous. The fact that a monkey prays does not make monkey righteous.
Don't forget that we have many wolves in sheeps clothing

Missy B:let me try.
Prayerful=you have the praying spirit,u love to pray.u commuicate with God steady.
God-fearing=You have the fear of God in you.Either cos of the way u were brought up ie by Xtian parents or the enviroment u grew up in,at times u might be tempted to sin but u wud inwardly remember one phrase that ur mum used to hammer to ur head and u wud be forced to refrain.U know right from wrong,u try so much to abstain from evil.
Being prayerful does not necessarily make one God fearing neither does being God-fearing make one prayerful.Do we even pray as we ought to do?some of us pray daily ONLY for ourselves or when we are in difficulties,is that being prayerful?methinks both are "works"
the pharisees and sadducess are good examples.They keep the law,pay their tithes and are prayerful.what did Jesus say?
|Re: Christains ,i Need You Here Please. by MissyB1(m): 2:24pm On Aug 01, 2008|
Thanks for d xplanation.M gettin smwhere.
|Re: Christains ,i Need You Here Please. by Nobody: 6:02pm On Aug 01, 2008|
Depends on the angle you view it from. Here is my own opinion.
God fearing in the biblical sense - Total obedience to God, complete surrender to His will and the whole hearted desire to deny oneself that God alone might be glorified in our words, thoughts and deeds.
Being prayerful is a completely different story. A God fearing man MUST NEEDS be prayerful as prayer is the most important route to direct communication with God. A "prayerful" man on the other hand is not necessarily Godfearing, a fearful man can pray because he is afraid of travelling on Nigeria's bad roads in the night and not because he fears God at all.
