    I recently started focusing on my relationship with the Father, the Lord, our God.
    Someone commented on their reluctance to pray directly to the Father, usually preferring to pray to Jesus, as The Father had seemed 'intimidating' in His handling of people who transgressed His laws in the OT.
    She just felt more comforteble with Jesus.
    This made me think about mt own feelings, and I couldn't deny a little of the same angst.
    I remember the time when I was more comfortable with Him, and I'm trying to recapture some of that peace , by praying to Him more. Does anybody else have this experience?

    Well i can i see your point and understand what you are saying but at the end of the day, Jesus is God the Son. As you know there are three persons in the one God:

    So if you pray to Jesus your praying to the one person that is God.

    God is love, sure he has done things that would put the fear in one, but He is just and does things only when they are just and when needed. I have wondered myself why does God do things that i find wrong, but i will never understand as i am only a man, and it isn't given to me to understand, but to have faith in God because He is truth.

    Yes. I agree. We are ultimately praying to God, the Trinity. It's just that we often use the names, Father, Jesus, or Holy Spirit, and it puts a visual image in my mind when I'm praying. I do feel more comfortable with the image of the Father than I previously did.
    Thanks for the response.

    I pray to the Lord and do not worry about things like that.
