    Someone told the tense you should be concerned with is the present tense. Spending too much time in the other tenses can ruin the present.

    A challenge to learn to live in the moment. When you finally realize what that means, you understand that the moments which have felt the most inspiring are those lived in the present.

    How does one defend oneself against the Devil's most effective weapon in Satan's constant fight to end our very existence - doubt? Do you remember the story of how the serpent tricked Eve into eating the apple by making her doubt God's command not to eat the apple? Never for even a fraction of a second doubt your constant need to be a friend to God, and God will in return never doubt His need to be a friend back to you and help you in life. There is no better friend to have than God. How does one be a friend to a symbol of good that one can not touch, see, smell or talk to? All we know about God that is thoroughly documented in the book of Genesis is that He made everything in six days and He then rested on the seventh day. One way for us to be God's friend and to honor and respect God is to copy what God did by working hard for six days by helping God create a better world and then resting ourselves on the final seventh day for a period of not less than 24 hours. Resting means the absence of work. We all need a day off from the weekly grind. To satisfy the minimum spiritual/religious/legal definition of rest consider the following: Rest means to completely cease from all monetary transactions (Stop buying groceries and things!), to stop gossiping about those around you (Be quiet for heavens sake!), to stop traveling to places outside the city in which you live (Put a damper on your travel!), and to stay away from public events such as live concerts (Rest your ears as well!). When you rest for twenty four hours or more following six days of hard work trying to make the world a better place to live, then God will support you and everything you do in life as He feels that you are on his side and are truly trying to be His friend. God will then without doubt help you find purpose and success in life. Many people think observing a day of rest per week is optional. It is not. In fact, refusing to rest one day each week is not only a violation of one of the 10 commandments, but it is a blatant denial of the existence of God as well as an open invitation to Satan that has its own extremely serious unforeseen consequences!

    The purpose of prayer is to strengthen a person's resistance/immunity against the Devil's most effective weapon in the Devil's constant fight to end one's existence - doubt?

    Yes, every time we pray we surrender our will to God, so that the love of the Holy Spirit comes into our hearts refreshing our soul, so that our prayer becomes God's will, and our will; and His pleasure becomes our pleasure.

    The saying is so true. That's what makes horses sooooo intuitive. They live in the present moment. Living in the present moment allows you to more aware. You're not thinking about the past or future. Your attention is centered in the now. I love horses and Equine therapy where the horses can sense anything going on with someone intuitively is because they live in the present moment only.

    You can't do anything about what has happened in the past. You can begin creating a better future for yourself by focusing on what you choose to do with your present. Start making small changes now and before you know it things will look much better.
