George Washington, SCHOLARS CRITICIZE, for not ADDRESSING CHRIST in Prayers
ONE SCHOLAR SAYS:
With such a large assortment of phrases, I find it amazing that Christian Authors do not provide a single example of where George Washington prayed to Jesus specifically, or directly.
What non-Biblical secular authors do not realize is as follows:
 People in the Bible did not pray like "modern, formalized, high-church, ritualistic mainline Churches" - who know some about God - but really don't know God.
God's People in the Bible: they just prayed! Read prayers of Moses, David, etc.
 There is only one God, so if He is addressed with a proper Title of honor - or even if addressed in earnest prayer . . . The Supreme Being and father of all Spirits is wise enough to know when one of his Children is "calling upon Him . . .
> in purity,
> with supplications
All of which George Washington claimed to personally do.
 The modern interpretation of "Praying in the Name of Jesus" is simply to "repeat these words" at the end of every prayer.
This seems simple enough, and is rarely questioned, EXCEPT - none of the Disciples or Apostles whom Christ taught to pray, EVER prayed this way!
 The true meaning seems to be of "praying with great authority" - by praying "in the name of Jesus - which is to pray as in the "POWER of ATTORNEY" of His Name: not just vainly to "repeating Words" like a mantra.
 If a person acts and prays as having the "Power of Attorney" of the Name of Jesus - that is the authority to do what Jesus would do if He were in this situation is a much more serious principle - and command of Christ.
 Acting, speaking, doing and conquering in the NAME of Jesus is exactly what George Washington did - almost better than anyone who ever lived!
