Mark 11:24 “This is why I tell you, all the things you pray and ask for, have faith that you have received them, and you will have them.” Loading... Log in to Reply Melissa Rubio says: March 6, 2021 at 4:08 pm You are wrong in the sense that Jehovah’s Witnesses don’t emphasize that prayer. Jesus Christ clearly said “insist and it will be given.” We are taught to pray for something in return and of course keep it as a daily practice. Loading...

Log in to Reply Gaetan Genesse says: March 6, 2021 at 4:08 pm I have a similar story in my family (not JW related) about getting lost in the woods, or children getting lost in the woods. I even made a theater peice inspired by that theme. If you feel inclined to you can click on the link above and it's around 20:00. I have herd some of those prayer stories at assemblies, like you said. As for the law of attraction, I believed in it the year after I got disfellowshipped. Le livre Le Secret. I don't believe in it any more. It's kind of culty. 10 years after I can't say that I have reached my goals I was thinking in my brain. Life is more messy then that, not linear. Loading... Log in to Reply Brr-rye-n says: March 6, 2021 at 4:08 pm Jehovah never answered my prayers for the 30 or so years I slaved for him but then I come to find out that I AM god in the use of my own imagination or awareness. Neville Goddard explains this very clearly, "god is your wonderful human imagination", of course there is much more to that so check em' out on YT. Kiss kiss 😘 Loading...

Log in to Reply Oroborus21 x says: March 6, 2021 at 4:08 pm it is generally good to stay positive and focused on good things and good future events and generally good not to dwell on negative thoughts or things beyond one's control. the Law of Attraction is not a law. It is interesting to think about and discuss but I am pretty sure that it doesn't exist and that all such instances are products of confirmation bias, illusory correlation or good old fashioned coincidence. but people will always continue to believe certain irrational things and on the whole this isn't the worst thing one can subscribe to. btw, I don't have any trouble following your train of thought even when it goes off track :-p Loading... Log in to Reply Brian Frisk says: March 6, 2021 at 4:08 pm I'm like you in that I don't know for sure whether or not the law of attraction is real. But I've had enough personal experiences even after I was disfellowshipped that I think there might be something to it. The JW's call it holy spirit and use it to support their beliefs. Other religions would say the Lord works in mysterious ways. Personally I think it's sickening when religions do this. I have a prayer story once where when I was a JW with my ex who was also a JW was deeply troubled by something. We fooled around and committed fornication but she felt guilty and wanted to confess to the elders. I didn't feel as guilty because I had a high sex drive and was already starting to have doubts about the org at the time which I kept to myself. But I felt guilty because I didn't want to hurt her. Anyways after we confessed our sin she was nervous about what the elders were going to do. While I was talking to her on the phone she started having an anxiety attack. So I prayed with her pleading to God to help. And after a minute she suddenly calmed down and felt better. I felt like someone put an invisible blanket over us both. In the end we ended up only being placed on private reproof. And yes although you felt like your thoughts weren't all together it's a topic I've looked into a lot lately so your video made sense to me at least. Thanks for sharing. 🙂 Loading...

Log in to Reply Thomas Turner says: March 6, 2021 at 4:08 pm Regarding Law of Attraction, I don't really buy it, as such. I think there is a little to it, though, insofar as if something is on your mind, you will be more sensitive to seeing it when you do encounter it. A mundane example: when I get a new car, I've never really paid attention to that make or model, but once I'm driving one, I see them all over town. I think you're right that religions, especially high control ones like JWs, make such an effort to steer your thinking on things that you can't help but see what their talking about. If you are told God or Satan manipulates your life, and you're told it enough times, you are going to eventually start seeing evidence of it, even though nothing is really happening. We're just suited to seeing patterns even if they're fake and the religion is busily building a pattern for you to see the world through. Political parties do this just as much. As for Prayer Stories, having been assigned to several congregations over the years, I've found that the prevalence of these swings with the overall "spirituality" of the congregation. In the halls with 25 pioneers and a dozen elders you are definitely going to hear prayer stories, but in the more relaxed halls where the people do seem to believe, but also have their lives to live, you only hear such stories from the crazies. But even when I was a believer myself, prayer stories would make me quietly pissed off. I would think "Why do you think God answers your prayers about a windshield wiper or having a good winter coat, while he then ignores people's prayers about disease and abuse and genuine suffering?" It's like, God gave us great weather for the Kingdom Hall clean up today, but was totally cool letting a hurricane kill hundreds of people elsewhere in the world. And I did watch this video through to the end. In fact, I watched it twice. You are one of my favorite YouTubers. Keep it up! Loading... Log in to Reply Bri yonce says: March 6, 2021 at 4:08 pm I get what you're saying. I think if the law of attraction is legit, then all those witnesses with prayer stories are using the law of attraction unknowingly. Thinking that it's God who's delivering or conveniently intervening in their life at the perfect time but really they're just manifesting these things into their life because of how strongly they believe that there's a God that will come through when they're in desperate need. Btw I also was that kid that believed that I could make myself float. In my case I could stay dry in the rain by walking between drops and using my mental powers to repel them. Loading...

"The Secret" A.K.A "Wishful Thinking" is pure nonsense. In my experience, I knew quite a few JWs and exjws that fell into this belief system for a while. It's a similar type of nonsense that Watchtower peddles but with a different coat of paint. Having said all of that, your mentality/attitude can hinder or help you in many situations. That's completely different from wishful thinking though. If you want to something happen, you have to make it happen. Sitting around and hoping for magical intervention isn't really going to get you anywhere most of the time. Loading... Log in to Reply Kelsey Labelle says: March 6, 2021 at 4:08 pm And think… maybe that’s why the law of attraction has never fully been proven, so that the government/religions can keep using it to manipulate/control us with the idea of God giving us all the good instead of us cultivating it for ourselves.. cause if we all knew it to be an absolute fact, I imagine anyone with even a hint of a brain would quit pursuing any type of religious organization Loading...

Log in to Reply Connie Hippensteel says: March 6, 2021 at 4:08 pm my prayer story is a little silly but anyways I was out in service with the girl who was studying with me and her family and there were kids with us. So while we were waiting in the car she told the kids if they could find this certain scripture they would get ice cream so they were going crazy looking for this scripture and I was just curious and was trying to find it myself. Now I am a diabetic so I cant have ice cream but I just wanted to find this scripture and wasnt having any luck myself. So I figured I would say a little prayer and ask Jehovah for help and I was looking in the back of the bible for certain words that could be in the scripture. After saying the prayer A word popped in my head and I looked it up and there was the scripture. So I wound up being the one to find the scripture but obviously didnt get any ice cream becuase I was a diabetic but I think they still took the kids out for ice cream afterwards. Loading...

As an ex-JW like all of us, a lot of things help me to find some start of answer sometimes like art, astronomy, or long night discussion with my family and friends (we all know what it is). Movies helped me too and your thought is very interesting. It remined me a scene from"Joan of arc" by Luc Besson. Here it is: In this scene Dustin Hoffman is her conscience, or maybe more her sub-conscience. The fact is we choose what we believe in and i think that generally relegions seek to trigger our self -persuasion by explaining us it's god and that's all… don't search. My opinion is that we have to stay a minimum open minded, but we have to be on our guard too because they explained us what was the "TRUTH". The trap with this system is when we fall in mysticism and it's linked to the dogma of a religion or any kind of belief. Nothing is more dangerous than the dogma for a human mind. And the problem when we borned and raised in that kind of belief is this famous vertigo feeling because we found that "not everything" we learned was the truth like we all know now. It reminds me you talked about "can i trust my brain ?". In that case, trust your heart is not so bad. By the way, i like your dreams, i'd love to change matter !! it could help me a lot. Loading...

Saying that God took some of his self and made what we call Jesus and then made everything else including time itself after that, or saying that God made Jesus and everything else are really saying the same thing. Arguing with fellow humans who are also pieces of God about is Jesus God or God Jesus is really unproductive. Loading...

Log in to Reply Paradise Lost says: March 6, 2021 at 4:08 pm Good morning Rebecca. You sure wake up early. I barely cracked my eyes open this morning and started watching your morning coffee message. I fell asleep 5 min in, woke up, restarted it, fell asleep again, woke up and watched it all the 3rd time around. I needed my beauty sleep I guess (didn't help). I used to pray, but I never once had a prayer answered. I used to pray that a normal family would take me away from my parents and adopt me, but that didn't happen. My mom would have us 2 boys pray for her to get pregnant with a girl she wanted so badly, however she ended up with another boy. I believe that answered prayers are just coincidences. If you have 8 million JW's praying for different things, odds are a few thousand of those prayers will be answered by coincidence. Sometimes good things just happen to people whether they prayed for it or not. I hope you have a great day. Ron P.S.
