Is there Scripture support for praying to each member of the Trinity separately?

I haven't seen this in Scripture, yet I have heard Christians pray this way. I also know that Benny Hinn supports this, so it makes me very leary of the practice.

So where do I find this scriptural support?

The generally expected place to find Scriptural support is in the Bible! [Linked Image]

But your "friend" has the onus of producing support from Scripture since he is the one who made the claim; not you. So, simply ask him to provide one or more passages which clearly show that there is either an injunction to pray to the Holy Spirit or an example where true believers prayed to the Holy Spirit. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

I opened myself wide open to that one Pilgrim. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/bananas.gif" alt="" />

But I think you know what I meant.

Another question that is related to this topic is.
Is praying to each member of the Trinity seperately a dangerous practice?

All the models of prayer in the Scriptures do not demonstrate such a thing, so IMO it would be unwise to do it. A human invention applied to prayer and not founded in Scripture would be little more than superstition.

Yes, I believe it is a mistake for a Christian to pray to individual persons of the triune Godhead, if we do we become guilty of tritheism. A Christian when he prays, prays in the Spirit thru Christ to "Our Father" in heaven.
