If you have not given your life to Jesus, then do so today. May this be the day of your salvation in Christ the Lord.
Isaiah 1:16-18 (KJV)
16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;
17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.
18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
I am sorry Jesus for my sins. You are my Lord and I can see how far I have strayed from You now. My life is a mess without You. I know that hell is my destination if I do not repent and put my trust in You today. Truly, I need You today and forever to help me through life. I know that You are God and mercy and forgiveness is in Your hands. I just ask that have compassion upon me now, for I know that I am guilty for what I have done and am so sorry. I know that I have walked astray and apart from Your love for way to long and wish to truly change things starting today. I wish to get on the right path and no longer walk in darkness. I cannot break free from my addictions on my own and need a Savior. Not just a person that can give me temporary satisfaction but someone that will never leave me nor forsake me. This I know is You, Jesus. For this reason, I come and surrender all my heart, mind and soul to You. May your blood cover me. Cleanse me of all my sins and take every evil thought captive. Help me start a new in Your light. Today I wish that You would accept me into Your presence and never leave my side. I surrender everything to You now. You are my God and I will walk in Your ways. Teach me to love the commandments, that I might better serve you. Breathe upon me the Holy Spirit, that I may live according to Your will. You have my heart, and I will trust in Your guidance. May I never stop reading the Bible and always hold it up as your holy words. I love You Lord. Amen.

Christians are not excluded from trials. Instead, in prayer, God bears us up during these hard times and strengthens our lives.
Acts 23:10-12 (KJV)
10 And when there arose a great dissension, the chief captain, fearing lest Paul should have been pulled in pieces of them, commanded the soldiers to go down, and to take him by force from among them, and to bring him into the castle.
11 And the night following the Lord stood by him, and said, Be of good cheer, Paul: for as thou hast testified of me in Jerusalem, so must thou bear witness also at Rome.
12 And when it was day, certain of the Jews banded together, and bound themselves under a curse, saying that they would neither eat nor drink till they had killed Paul.
Oh Lord, I pray that Your peace will come over us and bear us up when trials hit our lives. We know that in this life, we will all go through good and bad times. I just pray that in these bad times that You will comfort us and give us the strength to carry on. I no longer wish to go through these difficult times on my own. I know how these hard times have hurt me and made me feel, and I never want to go through that pain again. In trusting in myself there is only pain, remorse, depression and guilt. It is hard to escape these feelings. These types of feelings can really do some damage to my soul and put me in a very dark place in life. However, when I trust in You, God, there is only peace, comfort, strength, love, and so much light. We are led out of these trying times and led on a new path. It is so awesome to transfer my burdens upon Your shoulders. This way I no longer have to bear the difficulties of a job loss, financial issues, or death in the family on my own. It is because You have my hand and are ready to lift me up on Your shoulders that I can carry on. In doing this, You are able to lead me to people in the faith that are able to care for me and help lift my burdens. I know this to be true, for in my recent job loss, You never left my side. In prayer, You led me to friends in the faith that really came through for me. Now I am in a really good place in my life. This is all You had a hand it. Things would be very difficult now if You had not stepped in and helped through it. I love You Lord. I trust in You above all things. Thank You for helping me. Amen.
Paul surely was a man of God who loved the Lord, even if it meant great persecution would be in his path or his own death. Continue Reading
Every believer of Jesus also becomes a child of God. This faith allows us to have a deep relationship with the Lord.
Our outcomes are secure in our trust in Jesus. He holds our lives in His hands and is our guide until the end of time.
Isaiah 58:9-11 (KJV)
9 Then shalt thou call, and the Lord shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity;
10 And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noon day:
11 And the Lord shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.
Lord God, You are the supplier of all things good in this life. Everything I have ever wanted, apart from you, has never lasted. Only Your love is able to sustain me and lift me up during hard times. There is shelter from the storms with You in my life. All my fears are gone and my worries are over. It is because You fill me up with goodness and grace that I am safe. My eyes are opened and I can see the path I should go. The Spirit has led me into things that are pleasing to the soul. My flesh is deceiving and never wants true happiness in my life, only temporary satisfaction that never lasts. This is the type of lifestyle that only brings heartache and regret. All things evil comes into my life when I rely on myself and not in You, God. Things get confusing until I am humble enough to trust in You again and not upon myself and others. In the past, it was tough to look outside myself and other things that seem to help me, but now I know that every time I seek You, all things make sense. I understand where I am at in life, after coming to You in prayer. Now I realize what I truly need and that is Your love in my life. I had been seeking it all my life, but only found dead ends in so many wrong places. This has led me to give my life to You, my one true Savior. Where everyone else has deceived me at different times, You have never let me down. Continually, do you supply the blessings from heaven upon me. Your armor leads me from temptation and into Your glorious light. Thank You for Your protection and for never letting me down. I am forever Yours. I love You Lord. Amen.
Surely with the Lord God in my life, my future is secure. All my burdens are lifted. Where there was hunger, He gave me bread to eat. Continue Reading
The best time we have in the day is while reading the Bible and in prayer with the Lord God. Have you made time for God today?
Oh Lord, I pray that You will empower people's lives as they give themselves over to You. May every believer truly desire to live a life for You and to serve You in Your kingdom. So many people sit around either doing nothing or are on the move doing their own things, while You are left out. This truly saddens me that there is so much time in a day and people have a hard time fitting in what is most important and that is making time for You, God. Reading the Bible is often forgotten and praying has become a lost art for so many people that say they believe in You. For this reason, Lord, I am praying for a revival in people's lives. May they return to their one true love, which is You, Jesus. There is nothing greater on earth than to be used by You and I pray that people will come to understand this today. The things of this world do not last and only lead to destruction and I pray that this will sink into every person's heart. Truly the world is enticing but Your will is greater and its blessing are eternal. We do not have to worry about people deceiving us, for You are always there for us. We do not have to worry about our earthly possessions becoming worthless, for our greatest possessions come from heaven, which do not rust. Truly, to live for You is the greatest blessing of all. Nothing is better than to gain Your spiritual gifts and to be used by You in Your kingdom. I love You Lord. May Your will be done for my life always and forever. In Your holy Name, Jesus. Amen.
So it was that the men, women and children prayed as they reached the shore. They communed with God while being led by the Spirit. Continue Reading
