ZUES WAS THE KING OF THE GODS AND WAS MARRIED TO HERA HE ALSO WAS THE FATHER OF MOST OF THE GODS AND MANY OF THE DEMIGODS (HALF GOD, HALF MORTALS) HE WAS THE ON WHO THREW LIGHTNING BOLTS
Answer . The ancient Greeks respected Hades as the god of the underworld - the afterlife. But they preferred to be alive than dead, so were unlikely to pray to him or worship him.
For the ancient Greeks religion was not separate from culture or reality. They found the god and goddesses in their experience and adjusted their lives to the demands of the deities. All public and private events involved the deities because their favor was sought . The ancient Greeks felt that i…f they were moral and just that the deities would reward them. (MORE)
The chief gods of Greek mythology were commonly referred to as the Pantheon. ÏÎ¿Î»Î»Î¿ÏÏ Î¸ÎµÎ¿ÏÏ this is the way to write 'many gods' in greek.
Not that anybody knows about. Now most Greeks are Greek Orthodox, one of the oldest Christian religions.
Apollo was the god of the light and the sun; truth and prophecy; archery ; medicine and healing; music, poetry, and the arts; and more (from Wikipedia).
The trinity is really difficult to get a grasp on and I don't think that anyone will ever really get it until we die. My understanding is that while God is ONE in substance, He has THREE parts, each playing three roles. Jesus, while on Earth, submitted to God the Father. His life was to quench the w…rath of God against our sin so that we may be brought close to Him having been forgiven. The Holy Spirit's job is to snap people out of their self absorbed existence and bring them back to a right relationship with God. So when Jesus prayed to God He did so to set an example for His followers and to submit to God the Father. ALSO Praying is simply talking to God. It doesnt have to be some ritualistic thing you do. Seeing that praying is talking to God, it becomes a little more understandable. Jesus Christ is the Son of God, whom Isaiah said was a man aquainted with grief and sorrow in this life. Well, doesnt it seem likely that the Son of God would want to talk to most of all His Father "which art in heaven". So of course He prayed (spoke with His Father-God) all the time. When you are away from home for a long time, don't you miss mom or dad, and long to speak with them from time to time? Its the same way with Christ. There really is nothing mysterious about that. I am assuming your question means why did He pray to God (the most likely), if it is pray FOR God, then we are discussing something enitirely different! (MORE)
You merely talk to him. There is no special prayer or position that you have to be in. Yes, that is right. Except it all depends on the type of religion that you practice. Each religion has a different way to pray. Some ways to pray are indifferent from plain christian like catholics do the sign of… the cross and islamic/buddism have idols before them as if they were servants. (MORE)
Yes, the Greeks did pray to their gods, though they were mythical gods such as Zeus, the head of the gods.
To build a relationship with Him. . To ask for help, guidance, and understanding . To express regret and request forgiveness . To express concerns, gratitude and appreciation.
Anyone who thinks Ares is the strongest Greek God is dumb. Obviously Zeus is the strongest Greek God.
No. To whom would God pray? He is the Creator and King and Ruler ofall. There is nobody above nor like Him. God has no need to pray.He is beyond perfect and powerful. In fact, He does not need us inorder for Him to survive, though we need Him in order for us tosurvive.
Jesus is God and prays to his father God, keeping relationship with Him and the Holy Spirit God as well.. When Jesus was human he was more like god than everyone else, but he needed advice from his father, (God) he prayed for help along his journey. he really wasnt God in a different form, he was m…ore of a #1 follower. So they like more than one God, I find this really interesting as Christianity is sort the same as Hinduism, Buddism and sikhism, they believe in the same sort of ideology (God in - carnation) (MORE)
The one and only God of the universe. He created you and he loves you and he would love to help you. I know you have probably gotten this a lot, but it is absolutely true for The Lord. I would recommend getting yourself an NLT bible from your nearest christian book store. and try to find a good chri…stian church that makes you feel at home. if you cant find one or just don't have the time, go to graceincranberry.org. if you are a local in cranberry township, try one of their services. i hope this helps, and remember, God loves you no matter what!

Any god. It won't really matter. I will depend on what they are praying for. Here are some examples: Man in love: Aphrodite (Venus) Man of the past, present, or future: Janus Man of wisdom: Athena (Minerva) Man of the water: Posiden (Neptune)

The Norse, Greeks and Romans had a different relation with their gods than some present day religions. The gods of those cultures basically ignored humans except as a form of entertainment. The gods were forever stirring things up, mating with mortals etc. There was some praying going on, but the ma…in intent was a vague hope that the gods wouldn't be bad to you if you showed you liked them.This becomes evident in the Illiad and Odyssey when the heroes are ever being helped and hindered by the gods for some unknown end.

I'm not quite sure what you're asking here, so I'll just give you every god that relates to Poseidon. His Roman equivalent is Neptune. His wife was Amphitrite, and her Roman equivalent was Salacia (she is a fairly minor goddess). His parents were Cronus and Rhea, both Titans. His siblings are the o…ther major Greek gods: Zeus, Hades, Hera, Demeter, and Hestia. He had three children: Theseus, Triton, and Polyphemus. (MORE)
The Greek God Apollo would say many different things, if he were a human. He gives advice to people in need through high priestesses who usually responded in a riddle, hard to decipher. The high priestesses would take drugs that would seemingly make them go into a trance, thus communicating with Apo…llo. Apollo also speaks through dreams and 'visions', which were vivid and highly detailed. These visions and riddles are deciphered by the high priests. (MORE)
It's the preferred for of communication. You pray for what you believe you can change in a life, you can pray for your sanity, for your health, for your parents, grandparents, children, you can also pray to understand the bible before you open it to any page. You can practically pray for anything e…ven for a homeless person out in the streets, or a pet.. (MORE)
The same reason you pray to your god. The acient Greeks thought that there were many gods. But modern Greeks don't believe it.
As both the Norse god Balder and the Greek god Apollo were both sons of the king of gods and sun gods i'd say that Apollo is the greek Balder
Nefertem's arrival on the mythological landscape coincides with thevery beginnings of the world.

It depends if you have a certain religion or not.... If so, you would pray to that God of your religion
All the gods will still be the same, except maybe we'll have a god of the Internet, or goddess of You Tube. Read the Percy Jackson and the Olympians if you want to know about modern day Greek Gods
Well, Nyx was the personification of night, so perhaps they prayed for a safe night's sleep or the safety of those who worked at night.
each god did something different so whatever they wanted to do they prayed to that god
That depends on the god, really. Most common Greeks would pray and sacrifice to the goddess of the home and hearth, Hestia, and she would protect the family from evil. If you prayed right most gods would... Demeter would keep your crops from dying. Poseidon would grant you safe travels at sea … Aphrodite would make sure your love life said ok, or got a Lov life for you. Ect, you can imagine what each god could do for an average Greek. (MORE)
Largely animals, such as bulls: though there is some evidence in myth that people once were sacrificed.
Be loud when speaking to other but never act like you hate them. Listen and react by giving them a little help like a test
lightning bolts.mostly curses, deprnding on a dog, or turn a person in to a animal and then run'em over
If you do not believe there is a God why would you drop to your knees and pray when someone you know is dying?
If you do not believe in a god you will not "drop to your knees andpray regardless." This is similar to the old saw that "There are noatheists in foxholes" Atheists do not pray. Ever. If they prayed, they would not beAtheist. One who does not believe would have no one to pray to. Itis a logical fal…lacy. (MORE)
they all die so peace out since these gods were proven NOT to exist, then science would have advanced because the curiosity that was supressed back then would not be supressed so badly. they would have also formed the first truely atheist civilization because they would not have worshipped any gods.… socrates would not have been put to death, and the world would be years more advanced than it is today because of all the discoveries caused by the creativity of the philosophers.

Medusa isn't a Greek Goddess, and she doesn't have any powers, except if you mean the 'turn into stone when you look her in the eye' thing. That was only a curse by Athena because Medusa and Poseidon were making love in one of Athena's temples, and Athena is a virgin goddess.
He has no one to pray to, he probably just hopes his creations live up to their potential.
As the "Classic Mythology" - this being Greek myths - have been taught since the founding of America, and will be continued to be taught: yes the Greek gods and goddesses will be around in 2011.
Sacrifices and prayer were the most common means. Even in ancient Greece though, human sacrifice was abhorred. People would regularly visit the temple of their patron God or Goddess and pray and sacrifice animals. a lot of times they would leave offerings and stuff to them lik cheese or gold or f…ood or whatever (MORE)
For example: To make ensure that their deceased relatives would receive a happy life in the Underworld and to beg for him not to have them die when they are sick.
A Greek Goddess that would love to help anyone do their hair, for any occasion, would be Aphrodite. She is the Greek goddess of love and beauty .
well i believe this god, Dionysus in ancient Greece among the others is the god of wine. believe it or not. but i don't believe you could find him but i would guess in the wine ;) but yes it is true Dionysus is the god of wine.
they really only have one food and drink. ambrosia is the food and nectar is the drink.
Temple's mainly, each god and goddess had their own temple back in the Greek times.
People (ancient Greece) prayed in temples. Almost every temple was dedicated to one god/goddess at a time, ex. The Parthenon (Athena). Hope that helps!

The ancients, either good or bad, would pray to the god who had jurisdiction over whatever he wanted. For example, if a man wanted to have good luck, he would pray to the goddess Fortuna; if he wanted a safe sea journey for either himself or his goods, he would pray to Neptune. Remember, the ancient…s were pantheists and had gods for just about everything and every circumstance. There was no such thing as a god for a bad person. It was the objective that the person wanted to achieve which determined the god he prayed to. (MORE)
