Catholic Apostles Creed [+SHAREABLE Images]
This Prayer, Catholic Apostles Creed Is A Symbol Of Faith Or Christian Creed. In all likelihood, It has originated in fifth-century Gaul, as an advancement of the Old Roman Symbol, the old Latin doctrine of the fourth century.
It has been in formal use in the Latin ritual since the eighth century, and likewise in the different current parts of Western Christianity, including the cutting edge ceremony and catechesis of the Catholic Church, Lutheranism, Anglicanism, Presbyterianism, the Moravian Church, the Methodist Church, and the Congregational Church.
The articulation “Apostles Creed” is first referenced in a letter from the Synod of Milan dated AD 390, alluding to a conviction at the time that every one of the Twelve Apostles contributed an article to the twelve articles of the ideology.

Apostles Creed Catholic Prayer
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth;
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son Our Lord,
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into Hell; the third day He rose again from the dead;
He ascended into Heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting

How to pray the right way
Is it best to pray while standing, while sitting, while kneeling or with bowed heads? Do our hands have to be open, closed, or raised to God? Do we have to close our eyes when we pray? Is it better to pray in a church building or outside in nature? Should we pray in the morning when we get up or in the evening when we go to bed? Are there any words that must be part of our prayer? How to start a prayer? How to properly end a prayer?
These, and many other questions are common questions about prayer. How to pray properly? Does any of the above matter at all?
Too often, a prayer is seen as a “magic formula.” Some believe that if we do not say certain things or pray in the right position, God will not hear or answer our prayers. It is completely unbiblical. God does not answer our prayers based on the way we pray, where we are, in what position our body is, or in what order we pray.
God will answer all such prayers with the gift of peace in our hearts. Praying correctly means pouring out our souls before God, being honest and open with Him, because He already knows us better than we know ourselves.
We need to bring our needs before God, keeping in mind that God knows what is best and will not fulfill our prayer that is not His will for us. We need to express our love, gratitude, and worship to God in prayer without worrying about whether our words are perfect. God is more interested in the content of our heart than our eloquence.
We need to pray for what the Lord’s prayer is about, using our own words and “adapting” it to our journey with God. The right way to pray is to open our hearts to God. Whether we are sitting, standing, or kneeling; open or closed hands; eyes open or closed; in church, at home or outside; in the morning or in the evening – these are all side things, and depend on what we prefer, what our beliefs are and what is appropriate. God wants prayer to be a real and personal connection between Him and us.
