 Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?
2 Corinthians 6:14

Father God, as Christians, help us to know, without a doubt, that You place  people in our lives and You watch as we come together on the same causes and You watch as we connect on spiritual things, as well as, personal things. In time, You separate the light from the dark and You help build those relationships that will stand the test of time, trials, the world, and Satan. Thank You, Lord, for making us aware, through the Spirit, of what righteousness and wickedness looks like. Thank You for opening the eyes and hearts, of those who choose to live, through the Spirit. Thank You for strengthening those relationships, that are yoked together with other believers, who do what is right, who walk in Your light, as we walk with the Spirit. Amen. Love to all!!

 And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
John 8:32

Father God, thank You for sending mankind the truth, in Your Son, Jesus. Thank You for the cross, the sacrifice, the death, and the Resurrection. Help us to know, Lord, that without those things, we would not have the freedoms we enjoy today. Lord, help us to be truthful with ourselves in knowing that we have truly chosen Your Son, Jesus. Because without Jesus, there is no freedom. Lord, You see the world slowly pulling away from obeying and recognizing You, Your laws, and commands. Even in our Constitution, in the laws and ways we have pledged to live by, to be able to enjoy the freedoms You have given us, those freedoms are being taken away. Lord, we live in a sick world and need You to intervene before we lose everything You have put into place for us to live as a free people. People, I pray this for us all. I am free because I know and I have accepted the truth, Jesus. I say it proudly and thank God for all the freedoms He has given me. The freedom to choose Jesus keeps me free from this world and the sins of this world, regardless of what man tries to take away, nothing can change the freedom I have in Jesus. I pray all reading this knows the truth I am speaking of and if you don't, today you can choose the truth, Jesus, and be free. The choice has always been ours, God planned and purposed it that way. That's why He gave us Jesus, that's God's truth. Amen. Love to all!!

 The Lord is near to all who call on Him, to all who call on Him in truth.
Psalm 145:18

Father God, this world is in need of You more now than ever before. Help us all to be honest with ourselves Lord, and may we be truthful about where we are in this life. You already know, but that's the great thing about calling on You, even in our darkest moments, You are there before we call. Even with the world in turmoil, You are ready and waiting on the call. Lord, show Your mercy on those that aren't capable of being truthful, because they think they have all the answers, but they really don't know where they are at, in life, as well as, they don't know where they are going. People, consider this, if you would, please! If you call on Him, He always answers. He is the answer!  If you don't call on Him, someone else will come calling on you. Believe it! It's the truth! Lord, I call on You for those who won't and for those who don't understand. Have mercy on us all! Amen. Love to all!!

 Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, “Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last, and the servant of all.”
Mark 9:35
Father God, thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus, who came to serve and not be served. He was  the greatest example of humility, by becoming last, serving all mankind, when He could have left us to ourselves. Help us all, Lord, to see and learn the humility that is spoke of in Your word. May we all become humble and realize that this world doesn't revolve around our being. We don't have to be the best, but we do need to know the best, in Jesus. He is to be first in our lives, before anything else or anyone else. Just before Jesus was served up on that cross, He made ready, His disciples, to serve in His absence. Lord, help us all, to be made ready, help us to be willing to take on a servants heart, being humble in the Spirit, and ready to serve others, putting them first, just as our Savior, Jesus did. May we serve in all we say and do and may it be done to honor and glorify our God. Amen. Love to all!!

Some have heard Your knock and have opened that door. Some need to hear that knock from You. If we need to hear that knock, Lord, please, open our ears so we don't miss it, and if we have already heard that knock and opened that door, please, strengthen our heart, mind, and body, so that we  will stay ready to help others, when they hear that knock, and realize that it is their time to respond to You, as they begin a relationship with You. Amen. Love to all!!

Colossians 3:23-24

Father God, we thank for the opportunities that You give to us on a daily basis to be in service to You and others. Lord, You make it possible for the mind and body to function in anything we do.

If we have chosen to serve You, Lord, we have Your Spirit within us, and in that, we have the best guide possible, to help us accomplish the work You have planned for us to do.

Lord, these times we live in right now, should be our wake-up call, to come back to You, to come back to the church, to stand up for right, to stop living in sin, to start trusting in You, to have faith in the unseen, and to start serving You and the plan and purpose You have laid out for   each one of us.

 Observe what the Lord your God requires: Walk in obedience to Him, and keep His decrees and commands, His laws and regulations, as written in the Law of Moses. Do this so that you may prosper in all you do and wherever you go.
1 Kings 2:3

Father God, thank You for giving us all  standards to live by. You have given us a beautiful world in which to live, but we won't slow down enough to observe the beauty. We spend more time trying to make ourselves look good, to others, and we miss out on learning what is pleasing in Your eyes. We are disobedient in following that which is best for us because we don't like rules and being told what to do. Help us all, Lord, to realize that You know best, that You have the answers, that Your decrees, commands, laws, and regulations, are for our benefit. You set those standards to help us save ourselves from self. Lord, You lived by the same standards and if we are to, as Your word says, "prosper," we had better get on board, with what You require. Thank You, Lord, for caring. Amen. Love to all!!

Help us all, Lord, to take this time of trial, in all our lives, and do as Your word says, freely, take in Your Spirit, so that we can give of ourselves, first to You, and then to others. Lord, You are the answer, You are the antidote, to all the sickness of this world. We ask and we pray to You to heal, to restore, to cleanse, this world and all

Colossians 3:15

Father God, thank You for making it possible for us to know the peace of Christ, when we accept Jesus into our hearts.

Help us all, Lord, to never be afraid, being a part of the body, to share You, to share the love of Your Spirit, and to share the peace that keeps us all going in the difficult times. Lord, You know that we are living in difficult times as I write this prayer. Now, is when we need to know Your peace. We are all taken back with the change that is taking place in all our lives and my heart just breaks for those who are not at peace. Again, to know You, to have Your Spirit within our heart, to be able to look at the world through the eyes of Jesus, to rest in knowing that You have all things in control, I give thanks. Lord, to be at peace, to know that when it is all said and done, it will be You who is still there, covering those who know and those who will come to know You and Your peace, You will be there to hold us, comfort us, and take us into Your place of peace.

 Come back to your senses as you ought, and stop sinning; for there are some who are ignorant of God—I say this to your shame.
1 Corinthians 15:34

Father God, just as Your word is truth, it can sometimes hit the heart in a very powerful way. Lord, help us to not only take the truth of Your word in, but help us to do just what it says. Help us all, Lord, to take a moment and own our sin, you know yours and I know mine. Help us all, Lord, as Your word says, to "come to our senses," and stop sinning. Lord, You are the God of all good things. You do everything well and what You have created You expect good to come out of it. There is good in all of us and it is just as easy, to use common sense, and do good instead of sin. Lord, if the times we are in are Your way of pointing out, "enough is enough," I get it! I ask and pray for those who, as Your word says, "are ignorant of God."  Help those of us who know You to please, TELL SOMEONE ABOUT JESUS! If we know and we don't tell someone, Lord, we are the ignorant one, we are guilty of holding back the one thing that can make the difference in our sinning, or our coming back to our senses. I love You Lord and I praise You and thank You for saving me from my sins. Tell someone about Jesus!!! Amen. Love to all!!

 Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
Proverbs 4:23

Father God, You created all mankind, and You placed each part of our physical being in precise places to help us live, breathe, and function, as Your children. Lord, as well, You have given us minds to think and reason with, but sometimes we need to be reminded that we are Your children. Wow!To be children of God! How awesome is that! Thank You Lord! This passage speaks to us guarding our heart. Lord, again, remind us, as Your word says, "everything you do flows from it."  Everything, that's big! With our heart, we hear You Lord, we feel You Lord, we experience joy, love, peace, etc. and we also feel pain, suffering, loss, etc. Lord, with the hearts You have given each one of us, please, help us to know that our heart belongs to You, help us to know that feeling of Your touch, when we need You most, help us to hear that sweet soft voice, when You are whispering in our ear, and most of all, help us to feel that tug, when You need to grab our heart, with the utmost care, but maybe You tug a little harder, just to remind us, we are Your children, and at times, we need to be reminded, we trust and obey, with our heart. You have our hearts, in the palm of Your hand. Thank You,Lord! Amen. Love to all!!

 Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good;
His love endures forever.
1 Chronicles 16:34

Father God, thank You, thank You, thank You! Lord, if every person that You have created, said thank You, it would not be enough.

Lord, help us to be a reflection of that love, first to You, and then to others. We love You, Lord, and we want to share that love for all eternity with You! Amen. Love to all!!

Help us to be those blessed people, help us to reflect the Christ that is within us. Lord, we want to be that nation that can change this world. Help us all, to realize, that we can't do it without You. Help us to let go of the things that are stealing our joy, that are keeping us from living at peace with others, that is stopping us from being the people You want us to be. Lord, for some, it's going to be hard to start over, to pick up Your word and start to trust it, to maybe start a  relationship with You, or, maybe renew the one they started years ago, before the world and Satan got a hold on them. Lord, strengthen Your churches, Your Pastors, Your leaders, Your teachers, all those blessed people that are trying as hard as they can to stay faithful to You and to the work You have planned, that needs to be done.

 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you.
Matthew 6:14

Father God, from the cross Jesus said, "forgive them for they know not what they do." Lord, we all need help when it comes to forgiveness. No one really knows another person's hurt or pain and who are we to say this one or that one should be forgiven for the pain and hurt someone has caused another. Help us to start by us forgiving anyone that has hurt us. If we can forgive first and let go of our pain and know that You will make us whole again, then not only has the process of forgiveness started, but the process of healing has also started. We no longer have to live with our pain and hurt and You will strengthen us and forgive us of our wrongs towards others. Lord, help us all to have forgiving hearts so that we can pray for Your blessings on others. Help us all, Lord, to be a forgiving people, moving forward in our daily living, with the love and forgiveness of Christ in our hearts.

 Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
Galatians 6:2
 
Father God, just as Your Son, Jesus, carried His cross all the way to Calvary, please, help us to realize that it is You and our relationship with You, that makes it possible for us to carry one anothers burdens. Lord, You give special gifts to those who You have called to teach and preach Your word. That alone is a heavy burden. Thank You, Lord, for those who dig deep into Your word and thank You for giving them the desire to teach and preach. Please, Lord, give them hearts full of  compassion towards others, as they learn Your word. Lord,   help the teachers and preachers to be thankful for the ministries You have given them. Help them, Lord, to realize that not everyone has the same desires to learn, study, and grow in Your word. Lord, Your word says, "where two or three are gathered, You are amongst them..." As Your word says, Lord, give us that burden of one person, one soul, at a time. We are the servant, You are the Master Teacher and Preacher. Help the teachers and preachers to realize that the burden is great, but also, help them to focus on the ministry that You have put on them. Help them to not worry if it is only two or three, if that is all that is present, help them to remember the burden You gave them, help them to teach and preach the word of truth, help them to focus on the salvation of the lost soul, not how full the room is. Lord, I pray this prayer as the man You called, I have become the servant, first to You, and then to others, I have become a teacher, and a preacher, to those You have put in my life. Lord, help me and those You have called, to stay focused on You and Your word, to teach and preach it all, in truth, in love, and with a heavy burden, for the lost. Amen. Love to all!!

 Blessed is the one whom God corrects;
so do not despise the discipline of the Almighty.
Job 5:17

Father God, thank You for loving us enough to correct us when we are displeasing to You. When we know You, the way we should, we are well aware of what conviction feels like. To have a heart for the Lord, is to know that feeling in our heart, when we know right from wrong and when the heart is convicted,  that what we might be doing or saying, or maybe how we are treating someone badly, that is when we experience Your discipline.Thank You, Lord, for the blessing of when You touch those hearts that know You, that know right from wrong, that know it is You, who talks to us through our hearts and helps us to feel through the Spirit. Help us all, Lord, to listen and know that when we feel that tug on our hearts and we hear that voice from within, You are fixing to do something great, be it correction or discipline, those who know You, are about to be blessed. Amen. Love to all!!

Mark 1:15

Father God, You control all things and only You know the time for all things to change or end. Help us all, Lord, to be ready at all times for Your coming, for Your saving us from ourselves. Lord, some stand ready and waiting, please, have mercy on those who do not understand and help those that do understand, continue on telling others of the great thinks You have for those who will repent, believe the good news, and stand ready for Your coming. Amen. Love to all!!

 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
Colossians 3:12

Father God, to be among the chosen is truly a blessing. You have chosen us, but not all have chosen You. You are all those things when it comes to compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience, and You want us to adopt those same qualities. Lord, we are imperfect people, trying to live in an imperfect world and we need You to help us all to realize that the only way to gain Your mannerisms is to gain the Spirit within ourselves. We cannot do it alone, it will only happen when we choose You, and Your path, and when we let the Spirit in, when we start applying Your mannerisms to our daily lives. We will stumble, we will fall, and we will sometimes fail You miserably. Praise God, that You are always there to pick up Your chosen, dust us off, encourage us, and set us back on the right path. Lord, help us all, to not just go through the motions, because we all are guilty of doing that. May we join together in unity and worship and may we work at becoming more like You, in all we say and do. Come on people, He chose us! Surely, we can choose to honor Him, everyday and in every way! Amen. Love to all!!

 As for you, see that what you have heard from the beginning remains in you. If it does, you also will remain in the Son and in the Father.
1 John 2:24

Father God, thank You for the teachers and preachers when we were just infants in Your word. Thank You for those who still teach and preach the truth of Your word. Help us all, Lord, to reflect on the time when we first heard and started learning about Jesus, the Cross, the Resurrection, and all the wonders in the Bible. May we, today, know that those things still remain in us, and that they are the very foundation in our lives that we live by. Remind us, Lord, of the closeness we can have, when we are in relationship, with the Father and the Son. Amen. Love to all!!

 For I take no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Sovereign Lord. Repent and live!
Ezekiel 18:32

Father God, You defeated death through the Resurrection. For us the living, You have made it possible for us to defeat death through confession, repentance, and  conversion. Lord, only You know when a person has truly converted, because only You know a person's heart. Help us all, Lord, that have come to You and Your altar, on that bended knee, help us to arise to a new life and a new lifestyle, so that we will be a witness for You and be an encourager to others, so that they too can see how to let go of the old person, let go of the past, and let go of the ways of the world. As we repent, Lord, help us to honor You in the way we live, help us to show it in the way we serve You, Your church, and one another. Just as Jesus, died on the cross, for our sins, You, Father, had no pleasure in that, but because of it, You do take pleasure in seeing just one lost soul, coming to know Jesus,
coming to an understanding of the sacrifice that was made, and coming to know, that without Jesus, in our life, the pleasures that we experience here on earth, will be of no comparison to what You, our Lord, has prepared for those who will confess, repent, and live!! Amen. Love to all!!
Footnote: I have a heavy burden for the lost and I need to share this with all today. Please receive this and then pray, really pray!!
Lord, we all fall short of pleasing You, but each day that we open our eyes is another day to try and get our living right. If we need to confess, help us to do so and when we do, help us to repent of the confessed sin(s) and then, by all that is holy, let the real conversion take place. Let the Spirit take over. Your life is no longer yours. You belong to God. Please help this old Pastor do this one thing for the Lord that we serve and please, take time to consider,  all that the Lord, has done for you. Amen. Love to all!!

  In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace.
Ephesians 1:7

Father God, thank You that we can be redeemed and forgiven, through the blood, please, remind us that without our repentance of our sins, we have forgotten the meaning behind the cross and there will be no redemption. His blood for our sin, His forgiveness for our repentance, our redemption, because of the cross. Only by the grace of God!! Amen. Love to all!!

 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Ephesians 2:10

Father God, thank You for the plan You have prepared for us all to do. You are the Master- Craftsman and any work that You have done has beauty, purpose, and usefulness. In each one of us You have given us abilities that some of us have never even attempted to tap into. Lord, I would just ask that You give us all that urging to look deep within ourselves and pray until we hear You give answer to what it is that we should be doing to further Your kingdom. Help us to be sure that our hearts are being truly put under conviction and that we will have a desire, like no other, to carry out Your request. Your word says, You call some to be apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers(Eph.4:11-16). Lord, that takes obedience and courage, two things we all struggle with. Help us all, Lord, again, as Your word says, to be Your Ambassadors (2 Cor. 5:20). Help us to carry out the duties of Your ministry, by "telling someone about Jesus," by  being obedient and having the courage to not think we can't do the work, because, once again, Your word says, "God prepared in advance for us to do." Come on, people, church, let's get busy!! Amen. Love to all!!

 In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.
2 Timothy 3:12

Father God, thank You, it is a pleasure to be living for You, with Your Spirit leading our way, as we tell others about You. Although we have a target on our backs and know there will be persecutions from those who don't know You, please, keep us strong in our faith and remind us, as Your word says, that without You, we can do nothing, but with You, all things are possible. Lord, we want others to see You in us and we know the more godly we live, daily,  that is possible, through You. Help us to not worry about what is going on behind us, because in knowing You, we know You have our backs. If we will stop looking back and be forgiving, forgetting, moving forward in all we say and do, that's being godly, that's doing the work of the Lord. Again, thank You. Lord! Amen. Love to all

2 Corinthians 4:16

Father God, to know You and have that sweet, sweet, Spirit, within us, is to be able to  commune with You everyday. To have You and Your word building us up and keeping us ready to face the world and all the ungodly things that try to invade our hearts and minds, Lord, for that we thank You. Lord, continue to renew us and keep us close to You and Your word. Amen. Love to all!!

 Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper,
but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy.
Proverbs 28:13

Father God, thank You for the mercy You give even when we don't deserve it. Lord, help us to come out of the dark places, where we think we are hiding our sins. You see all, nothing is hidden from You and we can only receive Your mercy when we show ourselves to You  and this world. May we, as Christians, put ourselves out there for all the world to see. Help us all, to confess our sins, to show ourselves true to You and Your word. Amen. Love to all!!

Exodus 15:26

Father God, thank You for Your word that teaches us right from wrong. Lord, the world we live in right now is in a time of distress. If You are trying to show us something through this sickness with the coronavirus that has stricken so many countries and people, we hear you.  Help us all, Lord, to heed what the word tells us and get right with You and do right in this world to others. Lord, I don't know if this sickness is from You, but I know you do allow things to happen, to get our attention. I would just ask, please, help us all, to come together, all countries, all people, help us all to correct our ways of living and help us to find whatever it takes to fight this sickness that is going around. Help us to pay more attention to You, Your word, right and wrong, and cure us of the sicknesses that we are being attacked by. We know You are the Great Healer and we need You, now. Amen.

Galatians 6:1

Father God, thank You for taking the penalty for our sins. Lord, we have no idea of the pain that You endured on that cross because of our sins. Strengthen us all, Lord, so that we might not sin against You and cause You more pain, and Lord,  when we do sin, as we do, may there be another Christian brother or sister, who is living in the Spirit,  loving You, loving others, enough that when they see us caught in our sin, they will be strong in Spirit, and not tempted by our sin, and be the one to help pull us away from our sin. Amen. Love to all!!

 No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, He will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.
1 Corinthians 10:13

Father God, this world is so full of temptation and You know how much any one person can stand. Lord, help us, when any temptation raises its ugly head, to remember the price that was paid to keep us from letting any temptation become a stumbling block in our lives. Keep us strong in our faith, trusting, and knowing, that just as Satan tried to tempt Jesus, and by Him honoring the Father by resisting, He  maked it possible for us to do the same. Thank You, Lord, for the plan that You have purposed for those who will not let temptation rule their life. Amen. Love to all!!

Help us to receive, that which You offer, that which protects the flesh, and that which offers eternal life, to those who will choose to walk in the Spirit. Amen. Love to all!!

Matthew 5:11

Father God, thank You, for the freedom You give us all to make choices in life. When we have chosen a relationship with You, we do so through taking the time to learn about You and Your ways.

As Christians, we know there is a target on our backs, but, we also know, we are blessed, we are cared for, we are watched over, and we are protected, from the evil, that is in this world. Thank You, Lord, for making it possible for us to have that choice to be blessed, through You, through Your Son, Jesus, through the cross, where all our blessings come from. Amen. Love to all!!

Lord, please, help us all, to not be lead astray by our own thinking, or false teaching, that You are only a God of love, mercy, grace, and forgiveness.

Keep on loving one another as brothers and sisters. Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.
Hebrews 13:1-2

Father God, thank You for how You bring  people together. When You purpose our lives to touch others lives, we don't always see or know the reasons why.

We never know where any relationship will end up, but You do. That's why Your word tells us to love others, as You loved, to show others,  hospitality, as You did.

was seen by angels,
was preached among the nations,
was believed on in the world,
was taken up in glory.
1 Timothy 3:16

belong to the family of believers.
Galatians 6:10

Father God, thank You for all the wonderful opportunities You give to us all, everyday, to do all things that are pleasing to You.

You know where You need us to be in life and You also know of all the relationships that will take place in our lives. You know both the healthy and also the unhealthy relationships that will come into our lives. Lord, please,  help us to choose that relationship with You first, and as we learn from You how to deal with our sins and others sins, please, help us all, to  make the right choice, when it comes to the healthy and unhealthy relationships. Lord, help us to keep ourselves teachable, and help us all to always be thankful that You are the God of forgiveness. Amen. Love to all!!

1 Corinthians 13:1

Father God, thank You for the gift of being able to speak. Of all the languages that are in the world we need to master only one. Which is, to just speak as Jesus spoke, with love. If we speak in any language, which there are many, and everything that we say comes out with concern, compassion, kindness, and love, and if the ears that receive it, do so in the same manner, then we will be speaking like Jesus. Help us, Lord,  to not just speak a bunch of words that we shout out, making noise, so others will look at us, help us to speak love using Your words, that You have taught us, as we call attention to You and Your message.

Your love is so great, Lord, and  You give us all so many opportunities to choose Your plan and live our lives with purpose. To know You and know that You don't want to lose a one, is a gift, a gift of eternal life with You. To die to this world, to repent of our sins, and to start living for You, is just the start of better things to come. Lord, even in death, in the physical sense, when we die knowing You, we have been healed of any physical illness or disease, and we live on in that glorious spiritual body, that You give us. That is what You want for each one of us and You offer it, just for the asking. Lord, we ask today, through this prayer, that maybe just one, might choose to know You, accept You, repent of their sins, and start to live out Your plan and purpose for their life. You give and You take, Lord, and for that we give thanks. Amen. Love to all!!

Amen. Love to all!!

1 Corinthians 6:9-10

Father God, we thank You for the word of truth. Too often we try to make Your word fit the way we choose to live and not the way You planned for us to live.

You give us freedom to make a choice, but You also, through Your truth, tell us that their are consequences, good, bad, or indifferent, for every choice we make. Lord, You created the perfect world, because You wanted Your children to have the best life possible.  Help us all, Lord, to seek the inheritance You have for Your children. Amen. Love to all!!

Let there be healing of the body, our hearts, and our minds, as the Spirit cleanses our souls.

James 1:6

Father God, thank You for making a way for us to be able to ask anything of You. Lord, we can come to You, in prayer, and just talk to You like we would talk to anyone else.

and beyond cure.

according to what their deeds deserve.”

Lord, You are our only hope, and we need You more now than ever. I ask and pray for those that You will use to reach this generation, please, empower them so that many might be saved. Amen.

Lord, forgive us for that kind of thinking and help us to remember, if we claim to be a child of God, then everything we say and do, should always be spoken in truth and done in the light, for the whole world to see. Then we will be seen as Your child, with You helping us to live out Your truth. Amen. Love to all!!

‘every knee will bow before me;
every tongue will acknowledge God.’
Romans 14:11

Father God, thank You for always speaking truth in all that You say. Many still have not accepted Your truth and will be found lost at Your coming.

Father God, You made it possible for all people to come to know this peace, when You sent Your Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins.

All that we are and all that we can become, Lord, depends on us, not just saying we know, but truly knowing and living, as You have taught us. Amen. Love to all!!

 Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
1 John 4:1

Father God, thank You for the one true Spirit of Jesus. Help us all, Lord, to know and have the true Spirit of Jesus,  help us to let His Spirit guide us through the tests of those who teach and preach Your word. Lord, in this world, there are so many denominations of religious people, that come to worship You in a  church setting. Along with Your word, the Bible, the truth, man has adopted doctrines that might not go along with what You want us to  learn, obey, teach, and apply to our lives. Things are being taught today that are not from the truths of Your word and some are buying into this type of teaching. Help, Your children, Lord, to recognize these false prophets and to know, that when it all is said and done, regardless of denomination, religious beliefs, and doctrines, it will be only You and Your word, the truth, the Bible, that will stand the test of time. Bottom line for those who follow the truth, Lord, help us to accept the Spirit of Jesus, help us to let that Spirit, lead, guide, and direct us to those who preach and teach Your truth. May those who call themselves, a child of God, be found to be just that, when it comes time to see if we have passed the tests You have given us. Amen. Love to all!!

Thank You, Lord, that we can find You, as well, in so many places. Your word, church, music, other Christians, but most of all, at the Cross. In trusting You and seeking You, it always leads us, back to the Cross. Amen. Love to all!!

 Repent! Turn away from all your offenses; then sin will not be your downfall.
Ezekiel 18:30

Father God, thank You for Your words of wisdom. You say, "Repent!"
Lord, we all need your help on this one. As hard as the best Christian
tries, on a daily basis, You know that not one will succeed, in living a life as perfect, as the one You sent. Lord, these bodies, that You created, are imperfect. Our minds can't comprehend and hold in all the wisdom of Your teaching that helps keep us from sin. We are weak minded and get distracted by way too many things. Lord, the best any of us can do, is to pray, and when You come, as You will, then, if we are still here, that we won't be caught in our sin. Please, Lord, have mercy on the sinners, that we are. Amen. Love to all!!

 For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archayngel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

Father God, thank You for what great plans You have in store for those who know You and love You.  Out of Your love for Your children, Lord, help us, to share that love with those who haven't figured out Your plan, as of yet. No one knows when that trumpet will sound, but, You, Lord, and when it does, those who have been living, according to Your plan, will spend eternity with You. Lord, You created us all to be a part of Your plan, help us all to choose You and Your plan. Amen. Love to all!!

 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Father God, thank You for the Living Spirit, that we all can have, when we come to know You. Help us all, Lord, to let the Spirit keep us Holy, by helping us with what we put into the temples You have made us to be. If it be the food we eat, the books we read, the things we watch, even the influences of others, and any of the worldly things that break down the temple, Lord, please, be our Intercesor, through the Spirit, guide our hearts and minds in all the decisions we make. Strengthen the body, mind,   and heart, keep Your temple holy as we honor You, in our spiritual walk. Amen. Love to all!!

Lamentations 3:24

Lord, if we don't have You, we will have lived  life, just to have lived, and we will have missed out on all that You had planned for those who would come to know You.

Lord, show us how to be content right where we are, with exactly what we have been given, but most of all, remind us all, that if we don't know You, then all the "stuff" we have gathered up, as Your word says, is "meaningless."  Lord, give us all content hearts, that love You and serve You, as we live lives that are pleasing to You.

Father God, thank You for a most proper and profound scripture for this time in our lives, as we come together to give thanks, on this Thanksgiving Day. May we  all give thanks for what took place on the cross. Lord, without it, we would all be truly lost and have nothing to give thanks for. As we gather today, with family, friends, sisters and brothers, in Christ, let us give thanks for     all those relationships. Let those who know You,  give thanks for the greatest relationship we could ever have and let us pray for those who don't know You, to find You, while they can. May we all be there for one another and be together at Your coming. I want to personally thank You Lord, for the relationship You and I have, thank You for my wife, son's, grandsons, granddaughters, great- grandson, Church Family, and for every person that You have brought into my life. I thank You for the close relationships and the distant relationships, without them, I would not be the person You made me to be. I hope everyone has a most wonderful and thankful Thanksgiving Day!

Stand up, speak out, give witness, speak to the sin that is no longer present in your life, speak to the wisdom you have gained by finding Jesus!! Ignorance can only remain in us, if we continue in our sin, if we do not repent and let go of our sin, we will repeat the same sin(s).

Then he called the crowd to Him along with His disciples and said: “Whoever wants to be My disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow Me.”
Mark 8:34

Father God, in today's world, crowds gather at all sorts of sporting events, concerts, car shows, etc. But when it comes to spiritual events, even church itself, some, not all, will set those out, if it conflicts with the events just mentioned. Lord, we know You are saddened that Your children put  worldly things before You. You want us to enjoy our lives but You also would like us to get our priorities in the right order. Please, Lord, before anyone reading this goes off, help us all to just stop for a moment.......... ...(those dots was your moment) and really look at what we pick up first thing when we start our day and ask of ourselves, do we give thanks at all to the one who supplies the day, the air, the next breath, the next heart beat? Really think about this! Help us all, Lord, to make You a part of everything we do. Help us all, Lord, to give You thanks first, then put You first, everyday, and then watch and see if the spiritual things, if they are present in our lives, start to become first in our lives. If we wake up mad at someone or something and start our day in anger, that is our cross. If we wake up with worry, stress, bitterness, hung-over, or strung-out, those are our crosses. Lord, again, You took all our sins, on the cross, help us to take the time, that is given by You, to pick-up on that, for You are the living cross that we need to be carrying. Thank You, Lord. Amen. Love to all!!

Father God, thank You for loving us enough to want to return and gather us up. Lord, as Your word says, "every knee will bow and every tongue will acknowledge You," and You will know those whom You have come to get, as well as, those who never knew You. To those who know Him and know any that do not, let us pray for one another and as we do, let us ask God for the strength and courage to tell someone about Jesus, before it's too late. Help us all, Lord, to say something or do something, that will open the hearts, minds, and eyes, of those who are lost. Amen. Love to all!!

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves.
Philippians 2:3

Father God, when we come to know You and choose to live in Your ways, part of our commitment to You is to put others before ourselves, and realize that not everything is about us. Lord, help us to do just that, by putting You first, as we trust You to show us how to be humble, unselfish, and more concerned for others. Amen. Love to all!!

 Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.
Matthew 26:41

Father God, when You created us we were perfect in Your eyes. You gave us everything we needed and You even tried to shelter us from the temptation of the world You created. As Your word says, "the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak," and because of man's weakness, we failed the first test of obedience. Now, those who know, we watch and pray that You would show mercy at the appointed time. Lord, forgive us when we are weak and disobedient. Amen. Love to all!!

Psalm 34:19
 

Father God, thank You for always being there to deliver us from troubles when they come into our lives. Try as we may, Lord, You know it is a struggle to be righteous in Your eyes all the time. Help us all, Lord, to not take the grace and mercy that You show, when we are unrighteous, for granted. Lord, strengthen us in our daily walks as we seek You and Your guidance. Amen. Love to all!!

By day the Lord directs his love,
at night his song is with me—
a prayer to the God of my life.
Psalm 42:8

Father God,
Thank You, for being the light of love that leads us through our daily journey of getting to You. Lord, as well, You watch over us in the darkness through our dreams, as we sleep in comfort, safety,and peace, like a song that stills the Spirit within us,You are whispering in our ear all the wonderful things You have planned for us. Thank You, Lord, that we can arise each day rested, refreshed, renewed, safe, and loved, ready to walk in the Spirit, helping and showing others the way. Amen. Love to all!!

It is better to take refuge in the Lord
than to trust in humans.
Psalm 118:8

Father God, You teach us to love one another for who they are and accept one another just as they are. Lord, too many times we try to change people to think like we think and if we succeed, then, we can accept them. When that happens we have gained a person's trust but, we have not done it in a godly manner. So, when we enter into any kind of relationship without You being in it, we open up ourself to mistakes. First, You got left out, second, we put our trust in self (man), what do we know? We are lost without having You, the Savior, involved in our lives and us putting our trust in You and everything we do and say. Help us all, Lord, to trust You, to put You first, to treat others with a Christ-like attitude, and when we accept others into our lives, Lord, help both parties to know You and to put their trust in You, as we build our relationships with You and others. Amen. Love to all!!

Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
Hebrews 4:16
Father God, anytime we are in Your house, Lord, help us to come in humility and honor You. Lord, You can be found anywhere, anytime, and You are in all things. Help us all, Lord, to be confident in our seeking of You and, Lord, even when we are not very deserving of Your mercy and grace, show us what a loving God You are. As Your word says, "If you seek Me, you will find Me!" Lord, with the confidence that You give, may we never be afraid to approach You. Amen. Love to all!!

The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.
Romans 8:6
Father God, You created the human body for Your plan and purpose. Our bodies are the biblical vessel, temple, and tent.  Lord, it is You who uses the vessel as Your hands, feet, and mouths, to carry and spread Your message. You use the temple when we come back to You and Your house, the church, and as we worship You, You nourish and fill us with the word of truth, cleanse us of our sins, and ready us for the work to be done. In the tent, we live and we dwell day by day, using the minds You have given us, making choices that affect our eternal lives. Help us all, Lord, to not let the mind of the flesh, man's way, to overpower the mind of the Spirit, Your way. Lord, You have given us free will, as well, please, help us to choose eternal life and peace with You. Amen. Love to all!!

He must become greater; I must become less.
John 3:30
Father God, You must be priority one, above all things, in this life. Lord, putting You before anything else is what helps us to realize the true cycle of life. When we think we don't need You in our lives and that we have got it all figured out, Lord, please, get our attention somehow, stop us in our tracks, make us realize that without You all we will do is  make a mess of our lives. We want to be first, we want to think we are better than everybody else, we walk around thinking we are right and everyone else is wrong. Lord, please, help us to humble ourselves before You and start putting You first in our lives. It is only then that we might realize why we must be less and why You are greater. Forgive us all, Lord, for thinking the way we do. Amen. Love to all!!

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.

Ecclesiastes3:11
Father God, how awesome it is that everything You have touched has it's own special beauty. All that You have created for mankind is more than we deserve. Help us all, to find the beauty in the trees, the sky, the mountains, all that You have created, but most of all, help us to find the beauty in all people. You have given that to us all, be it the outward beauty or the internal beauty, we all posses that special beauty in our hearts. Your word says, we are made in Your "image." Lord, help us to be a reflection of that beautiful image You are, so that the world can see us, as who You want us to be, Your children, loving one another, sharing in the beauty of all Your creation together, and showing others the way to prepare for the eternal things that awaits Your children. Amen. Love to all!!
