What is God Really Like?
 What is God really like? Some people think the most important question of life is “Do you believe in God?” But a more important question is “What kind of God do you believe in?” There is something worse than being an atheist - it is believing in God, but having an erroneous concept of God. There are many religions in the world that present many differing pictures of God and they all may contain a little truth. A stopped clock is right twice a day, but actually a broken clock is worse than no clock at all because it gives you misleading information. You can believe in God, but if you have a false conception of God, you are no better off than an atheist.

Jesus Christ came to planet earth to show us exactly what God is like. In Luke 15, He shares three beautiful stories that paint a portrait of the character and nature of God. Today let’s look at the story of the lost son:

Jesus continued: “There was man who had two sons. The younger one said to his father, ‘Father, give me my share of the estate.’ So he divided his property between them.
Not long after that, the younger son got together all he had, set off for a distant country and there squandered his wealth in wild living. After he had spent everything, there was severe famine in that whole country, and he began to be in need. So he went and hired himself out to a citizen of that country, who sent him to his fields to feed pigs. He longed to fill his stomach with the pods that the pigs were eating, but no one gave him anything.
When he came to his senses, he said, ‘how many of my father’s hired men have food to spare, and here I am starving to death! I will set out and go back to my father and say to him: ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your hired men.’ So he got up and went to his father.
But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.
The son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’
But the father said to his servants, “Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring o [...] Read More

How to structure your Prayers
Steps of Prayer
Praying is one of the best things one could ever learn to do. There are various ways of praying and prayer could basically be viewed as having a conversation with the Lord. There are numerous prayers online that may help you with specific prayer requirements such as prayers for healing, protection, good health and so forth.
The most important prayer of all (and the only one you need to consistently pray as indicated by Jesus) is The Lords Prayer. Sometimes, however, it is comforting and assuring to add a personalized prayer to your praying routine as well. The problem comes when you have so much to say that you do not know how to organize your prayer.
