Lessons About Prayer: The Times for Prayer

Lessons About Prayer from the Jewish Culture of Yeshua Series #3 The Times for Prayer
Now Peter and John went up together to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninthhour. (Acts 3:1)
What time was the ninth hour? The following information from To Pray as a Jew provides us with important insights about this topic.
The Times for Prayer
When Ezra the Scribe and the Men of the Great Assembly prescribed the number of prayer services for each day, they also fixed the time framework in which to say them. The official time for the   various services was set to correspond to the time that the daily communal offerings were brought in the Temple.
An Explanation of the ‘Variable Hour” (Sha-ah Zemanit)
In order to understand how the exact time parameters of the daily services are fixed, one must begin by knowing that wherever the Mishnah or later halakhic sources referred to the time of the day, they were not referring to a fixed hour, nor, when they used the term “hour” did they mean our constant in…

Lessons About Prayer: Prayers That Will Not Be Answered

Lessons About Prayer from the Jewish Culture of Yeshua Series #2 Prayers That Will Not Be Answered
The Talmud tells us that God will not answer some kinds of prayer. God will not answer a prayer: that is:
(1) that is not sincere
(2) that asks Him to break one of His own laws
(3) that asks for Him to do what we ourselves should be doing
(4) that asks Him to help us by hurting others
There are two partners in prayer, man and God. Prayer does not always work in the way we want it to or think that it will. God is concerned with every one of His creatures. There is a great difference between speaking magic words and saying a prayer. In magic we believe that we can force something to happen. In prayer, we know that we are not the boss. In prayer we are trying to “get in touch with” God; not trying to force God to obey us.
We must also remember that sometimes the answer to our prayer may be “No.”

Lessons About Prayer: Whom Should I Thank?

Lessons About Prayer from the Jewish Culture of Yeshua Series #1 Whom Should I Thank?
Once a boy who had just eaten lunch turned to his mother and said, “Thank you very much.” But his mother said, “You should not thank me alone, for I only prepared the food.”
The boy wondered, “Whom should I thank?” He went to the grocery store and saw the grocer.  “Thank you, Mr. Grocer, for the very fine bread that I ate at lunchtime.”  “Oh,” said the grocer, “you should not thank me alone. I only sell the bread. I do not bake it.”
So the boy went to the bakery where all the bread was made; and there he saw the baker. “Mr. Baker,” the boy said, “I want to thank you for the wonderful bread that you bake. The baker laughed and said, “I bake the bread, but it is good because the flour is good. And the flour comes from the miller who grinds it.”
“Then I will thank the miller,” said the boy and he turned to leave.   “But the miller only grinds the wheat,” the baker said. “It is the farmer who grows the grain …

Prayer in the Real Yeshua’s Jewish Culture

Prayer is the human side of an unending dialog between God and man. It is through the Scriptures that God speaks to man. Man’s response to God is prayer. Most Hebrew prayers are expressions of adoration and gratitude. They are prayers of thanksgiving and praise for God’s boundless mercy and goodness, for His providential love and beneficence to all His creatures. Prayers also play an educational role, especially petitionary prayers.
 Petitionary prayers voice our needs, and they ask for deliverance from the various afflictions that beset us in the world. The function of petitionary prayer is to make us more conscious of our dependence on God, that we may thereby become more receptive to divine influences. God answers petitionary prayer, but not necessarily according to our specifications.
Man and God are partners in the work of creation; therefore man must be a co-worker with God in the struggle against the deficiencies which challenge him.
(1) We cannot expect God to overrule the laws …
