Why Do We Close Our Eyes To Pray? When it s time to pray during worship, we all generally do the same thing we bow our heads, close our eyes and fold our hands into our laps. But why do we do that? Like everything else we do in the name of worship, our prayer habits deserve scrutiny in light of the Word of God. In the Bible, people of God prayed in a variety of ways. Some prayed standing. Jesus commanded, Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone (Mark 11:25). This prayer position even has a name that goes way back it s called the Orans position, Latin for praying. In this position, the people of God lift their hands toward God (and Paul says to make sure those hands are holy before lifting them, 1 Timothy 2:8). The worshiper might also look toward heaven in
means people worldwideВare wondering how it came to happen. Here is a run-down of the Вand why it matters so much. How does the Electoral College system work? The US president is not directly chosen by voters, but by вelectorsв that people in a state vote for. The more people in a state, the more electors an area has. For example, Texas has a population of 25 million and is afforded 38 Electoral College votes, while Delaware has a population of 936,000 and has only three votes. There are 538 electors in total, corresponding to 435 members of Congress, 100 Senators and three additional electors for the District of Columbia. They will meet in their respective states on 19 December to ultimately elect the President. Almost every state chooses to allocate all its Electoral College votes to
The attendees of Kate and William's nuptials received a lot of attention for their choice of fanciful headwear, but the royal wedding isn't the only event known for its display of wild hats. The flashy, colorful hats that women don at the Kentucky Derby are a part of the annual horse race's tradition -- and the bigger and bolder the hat, the better. "We don't have a lot of documented history on the hats, but speculation has it that when the derby was first brought here, they wanted it to be a social affair," Courtney Stinson, a public relations manager for the Kentucky Derby Museum,. "They went around to all of the women's clubs in town and invited the women to dress up in their finest to come to the Derby," Stinson said. When was first held at the Churchill Downs racetrack in Louisville,

Of course. Sigh. I remember when the little mermaid turned into sea foam at the end of the story because the sea witch's spell required the prince to marry her, which he did not. There was no lobster dancing and singing with the whole sea crew. Not to mention she was in constant extreme pain from trading her tail for legs.

The code of ethics for teachers is designed to protect the rights of the students, all the students. It is important that teachers understand that when they get a teaching position they are agreeing to follow the code of ethics. I hadn't realized some the things that were in it so I am glad we went over it. Teachers are expected to be fair to all their students and not to take advantage of their position in any way. For example, you can't accept expensive gifts from students because it might appear to bias you. You can't push your personal beliefs on students because they are a captive audience. ...
Cellular respiration has three main steps: glycolysis, the citric acid cycle, and oxidative phosphorylation, where oxygen is used. Step 1: Glycolysis Glycolysis is the first step in cellular respiration, and it occurs in the main compartment of the cell: the cytoplasm. Cells let glucose in from the blood--the glucose comes from the food we eat. Next, cells convert glucose through several different compounds to make two ATP molecules and a molecule called pyruvate. A compound called NADH (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide + hydrogen) is also created. This molecule stores electrons harvested from the glucose, which will be used later to create a larger amount of ATP. Step 2: Citric Acid Cycle Next, the cell takes the pyruvate made in glycolysis and converts it to a molecule called acetyl
