I imagine one might think at the suggestion, "What a stupid thing to ask."
My reason for asking is simple, though, and I assure you born out of logical thinking if you will hear me out.
Jesus institute's a universal prayer of sorts in the form of: "Our Father, who is in Heaven, Holy be your name. Until Kingdom come, Your will
be done, as in heaven so on earth...."
Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us, and don't lead us into temptation.
My own wording, but no difference, if it makes a difference I am sure you have a Bible and know the prayer, that's how I say it though.
My point is, it is hardly the only time Jesus prays to his Father in Heaven. He asked for his burden to be removed, every time he healed someone or
performed any miracle it was through the power he had by being in direct 2 way communication with God. But God was the final authority on all things,
Jesus power came from God.
Which explains why he obeyed God and prayed and never once did he do his own will alone without permission. He didn't want to be crucified,
regretted it even thinking he was forsaken at the point of death, his final words were "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" Showing a lack of
Let me wrap this up and get to my point.
If you happen to believe Jesus is the Messiah and Son of God in addition to God (the Jesus Trinity? "In the name of the Christ, Son of God and who is
God, amen." Kidding. He has more titles and attributes than the Kabbalistic Sefira on its Tree of Life model to be honest)...
Sorry. If you believe Jesus is God, that would mean you believe God prays. To God. Unless Jesus was not God YET, and was "promoted(?)" from
Messiah to Son to full blown God, spiritually progressing along the Way.
In either case I have a question:
Who does God the Father pray to?
The Holy Spirit?
I am seriously curious and not at all trying to mock, aside from a joke or two in good fun.
I would love to hear a logical resolution to my quasi-dilemma of trying to determine who the other two God of the Trinity prays to.
(Interesting side note, I used singular God because of the Monotheistic beliefs of Christians who refer to Elohim, literally "Gods" in Hebrew and
Ugaritic, as "God". While Elohim actually is called a "plural of Majesty" and said to refer to the One God of Israel most times it is used,(
theologically this is true)... Christianity has a belief in 3 God(s), quite literally, F, S, & H.S., they only call the Trinity "God" even if
referring to all three of the members. One God is called many, 3 God(s) is called one...very interesting coincidence, few legitimate coincidences as
Who does God pray to? Does Father pray to Son? Receive from Son miraculous powers? Does the Holy Spirit pray to Jesus, Her Son?
Jesus calls the Holy Spirit his Mother in the Hebrew Gospel original translated by Augustine. Something about taking him to a Mt. I think is called
"Tabor." It is said because of Spirit being fem. in Hebrew this is the reason the Spirit is called "Mother" but is this true with ''Father"
too? Meaning metaphorical, not literal "Father" due to the masculinity of "El" or "God" in Hebrew?
Actually, Elohim is masculo-feminine. El+Eloah. Elohim are also the "Host of Heaven" or "Sons of El." In Canaanite religion "Sons of El and
It was not uncommon for lesser gods to recite hymns to the High Gods. Prayers to God from gods was normal almost in any polytheistic culture I can
think of. Baal pleaded with Asherah who interceded with El and Yamm's fate was sealed, Baal Elyon was the God of Canaan even if he had to answer
(hypothetically) to El the actual King of the Pantheon, Mighty El, the Bull.
So it is not outrageous or anything if a god prays to a god, especially his/hers Parent God.
Sophia prayed to the All in the realm of the Light and She was the Creator God (different than demiurge) of the "Gnostics" and other than her
consort Christ/Logos and the Great Inneffable Spirit, She was the most important and revered God(ess) they had.
Sophia is the equivalent of the Holy Spirit in Gnostic Scripture and prays, repents for creating without the blessing of the Great God or her consort,
and produced imperfection and an unnatural Spirit. Hid it on earth and a great deal of mythology develops from there.
But that is not monotheistic or Orthodox Christian, though Christian indeed.
Does the God of the Bible pray?
