As per our belief How do I pray? When do I pray? What do I Pray? Is our prayers includes our own worldly matters? is it right to ask in pray about our personal matters or only spiritual matters? If its spiritual matters what all can request in the pray. In the Bible its mentioned about praying continuously? how do we practically do it.

Your question:

Hi Thirumeni, Thank you very much for answering my previous question. Now can you please Now , can you please help me to understand Hell,Hades(Luke 16 23-24),Sheol(in old testment),Gehenna ( Dahana Sthalam)?


My answer

All these are of the same meaning, but for various traditions. Each tradition has its own background in culture. Hell, hades, sheol or gehenna all simply mean a situation away from the presence of God and hence a situation of restlessness and suffering.

Regards and prayers
