Praying To God To Stop Bad Things


I have had many circumstances where I fear that my life or that someone else's life could possibly be put in risk. Every time that it happens, I pray and pray that nothing bad happens. Every time that I do that, it all turns out okay. Am I just lucky? Is it a coincidence? Did god do this for me?

It was storming out and there was a bad flood outside. It was late at night and my mom nor dad was home. Just my brother and me. The weather channel said that the waters were very high. I was praying and praying that nothing bad would happen and then within five minutes or so my mom came home. I was still upset that my dad wasn't home, but my mom told me that everything was going to be okay. I still prayed and prayed and he came home safely.

Tornado's are very very bad and I am terrified of them. We were in the basement during a tornado warning and I could like hear it outside. I was crying because, at the time, it was the thing that I was most scared of. Yet again, I prayed that everything would be okay and that the tornado would not hit us and soon everything was quite calm and finally, it was all over. There was little damage and our house did not get hit.

There has been other incidents, but they were rather smaller things.

So I wonder, was it my praying to god that stopped the bad things from happening, or was it just a coincidence that nothing bad happened? I have always wondered. I have a feeling, though, that if it were not for god, I could not be here. And for that, I am very thankful.

By the way...

Bad things happen to people so that Allah/ GOD can test their faith.

He wants to know who will make their faith pure to him alone...
(forsaking all other things e.g. Idols, people, money)...because people worship a lot of bad things without even realizing it.

Keep praying to him alone and all good will come to you.

But beware you have an enemy (in satan) and he does not want you to keep your faith pure for Allah / GOD.

There will be times in your life when he will tempt you and try his hardest to lead you astray from the true path... Never ever give in... To low desires.

To do something you feel or instinctively know is the wrong thing to do.

As such behaviour can take you away from Allah /GOD.

Always do what you know is right! Sometimes this can be a feeling or the first thought that comes to mind.

Though sometimes in life people will come and try and tell you otherwise. (they may mislead you).

Dear Jill2013.

You are right... Allah / GOD hears your prayers and childrens prayers are very strong...
(I am assuming your are young... So forgive me if I am wrong).

Allah /GOD is always with you... Especially in times of distress.

It is he that protected you and your family (mother and father) because you asked him too with an open and loving heart.

The fact that you took the time and sincerely called on him for his help and assistance is truly a wonderful thing.

May Allah / GOD continue to guide and protect you through your life... And may your prayers remain only for him... The unseen, the most merciful and most kind.

God loves all of his children, including you. It's great that you pray to Him in your time of need, because there's something He wants to do. Comfort you. It seems that, because you've called him in your times of need, he's comforting you, and favors you. Pretty awesome.:D

About your problems...
God wants us to know that life is NEVER going to be easy ALL the time. We're obviously going to have some bumps and thin places. That's Him saying, have faith. He's in control and knows what is going to happen, and whatever happens, happens for a REASON. And really... I think that you're BLESSED. Not just you, but your problems too. You should actually be thankful. He's just building up your relationship with Him.

Hope this helps!

I know personaly that if you ask you will recieve... If you truly believe... God does what we ask... When we believe he will. Keep the faith... Hes with you strong... We already know he doesn't do this for every one... Your not lucky... Your blessed.

What a great question and so sincere and honest. Thanks! I really enjoyed reading what was and is on your mind. I really believe in Prayer. It is not like God doesn't already know what we want. He needs our friendship and He loves it when we talk to Him. That is what prayer is. It is just having a chat to God. He especially likes it when we ask for sensible things and not ridiculous wants. However He loves us so much that He often gives us those ridiculous wants as well.
Asking for His protection is a very smart thing to do and I do that all the time for my kids and for me and my friends too. Sometimes he let's seemingly bad things happen but there is a Bible verse which is very good to hang on to. Romans Ch 8 verse 28. ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD TO THOSE WHO LOVE GOD AND TO THOSE WHO ARE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSES so even bad thins work out for our good even tho it doesn't look like it at the time.
