The purpose of prayer and faith

These are just my thoughts when I thought yesterday what role did prayers play. It's a bit of jumble but then it's organic and just my thinking.

But on a deeper level what does my prayers do? What function does my faith serve if I am afraid to do some things and thereby act against my own prayers. Not in a bad way. But I pray for a job and then not do any applications. There is divine intervention only when it is allowed by mortals I think.

What is it that stops me delivering my part of the bargain in prayer? I ask to help lose weight yet I don't have any self-control when scoffing chocolates or scones. I reach avarice and gluttony on a level and I blame whatever is around me.

I say powerful prayers yet I don't act to help manifest them or don't realise when the when the prayers are answered or opportunities arise. It is about having the faith to act regardless. I guess 'Heaven Help those who help themselves'.  It's easy to mutter a few words in prayer however out in the real world everything is forgotten and I sink into the hustle and bustle of everyday life. I forget to be mindful and focused. Is that just me? I don't really have an answer; I guess apart from with prayer comes action.

I also think an important thing to remember is that we get what we ask for but not the way we think. It comes but not in the packaging we think it will. I guess it's to be mindful and evaluate things when they come your way because it may just be your prayers have being answered.

Also I'm a firm believer in things happen for the best though sometimes this can every bother me. If I don't get something it may be because it wasn't right for me at that time. I've had real issues with situations at some points in my life but deep down I knew that it wasn't right. Prayer is divine and will only act in your best interest. So with hindsight I see some things that didn't work out was for the best. Sometimes I even knew it sooner but wanted things so bad. But I guess the bottom line is if things don't happen that's just it; they don't happen despite how you paint it up.

These are just my thoughts.

Growing Up Hip Hop Episode 6 Season Finale: A Question for Romeo- The Virgin Queen Angela or sexy Kristinia 'The Missing Kardashian Sister' DeBarges.

To my surprise I found this was the season finale, and I think due the lacklustre performance and lack of promotion by any of the investors or stars it may not be commissioned for a second season. Frankly when I found out this was the final episode in the series I thought it was an anti climax. Why? Well the cliffhangers were Angela's stalker who no one really cares about, and also Romeo driving away to have a threesome probably fake with Kristinia 'The missing Kardashian sister' DeBarge and her friend Ashley.
Oh well let's starts with my observations of this show. Will I be watching it again? I don't know. They even seem to having a reunion.

Def Jam and Phat Farm Founder Uncle Russell Gives Angela Simmons A Piece of Mind The show kicks off with Angela Simmons sprawled out on her virgin white bedsheets when Uncle Russ gives her a call for an update on the stalker situation. She tells him she’s made contact with the stalker.

Basketball Wives season 5 - Episode 4: It's all about Evelyn missing wife-headpuncher Chad and Tami seeking drama over what Shaunie said to Tasha Marbury. Suzie Ketcham says jaw surgery was to correct assault on her jaw used as punching bag by some unnamed ex of hers

This was show all about Evelyn 'Will-I-go-back-to-Chad' Lozada and Tami 'I'll-punch-you-in-the-face' Roman.  It's got to be the most boring Basketball Wives I've watched.  And it was so boring so I'll just cover some points and in no particular order. I hope it makes sense in some way?

UPDATE: NOTE: Tami confirms in her blog that her mother died at Tami's home surrounded by her family - that is Tami and her two daugthers who were with her when she died.

Evelyn continues to whines about Chad Johnson Ochocinco

Evelyn goes on and on about Chad Johnson Ochocinco till at some point I start to feel sorry for the man. This is too bad because I can't believe that I feel sorry for Chad Johnson Ochocinco. Never thought I would say this. POOR CHAD. Seriously, Poor Chad Johnson Ochocinco. I really do feel for him because it's like an nightmare that will never end. For him and for us. Evelyn too because she has that horrible gash on her forehead. No …

R&B Divas LA season 1 episode 3: Kelly Price, Chante Moore, Lil’ Mo, Claudette Ortiz, Michel’le and Dawn Robinson all go to Vegas, Chante Moore is all about female empowerment and self-marrage, Dawn Robinson reveals more about her hurtful and abusive marrage also struggles to have a child,Lil Mo and Chante Moore save the day singing at Boardway in the Hood.

This show is pleasant, honest and easy to watch. I think they have go the balance right in this case because I can see people like Chante Moore, Lil Mo, Michel'le and to some extent Dawn Robinson not standing for any behind the scenes rubbish - however time will tell since it's still early days.
These women are hungry  in a different way to the ones in R&B Diva's Atlanta. With the exception of Claudette Ortiz- these are very cast full of strong women and know their worth! I say that because Claudette Ortiz is the youngest by a good few years.

So given that the foolery that is Basketball Balls Miami will be starting with Tami, Evelyn Lozada and Shaunie O'Neil soon this is a good cool down show.

Lil Mo, Dawn Robinson and Claudette Ortiz bond over  'All we have being through' discussions.

It kicks off with Lil Mo, Dawn Robinson and Claudette Ortiz all discussing the monologues. Yada, yada, yada they keep on talking.
