Oh Lord, I pray for every member of the Catholic Church. May they wake up to the idolatry in the church and in their lives and leave that that false religion today. Your ways are higher than the traditions of men and their pagan worship, and true worshipers ought to worship You, and You alone. To truly love You and keep Your commandments, we need to identify with each of Your laws and write them upon our hearts. We cannot have only nine of them, but all ten commandments. Even everything You taught us, Jesus, we ought to know Your teachings and do what You have said. Otherwise, we are only following something or someone that will never save us. Without Your mercy, our lives are in danger of hell fire and damnation when we die. For only believing in and worshiping You, Lord, is for salvation. We can never come to You with idols still present in our lives, and think that we are in good standing with You. Therefore, I plead that You remove any idol thing from my life still and from any person's life that says that You are their Lord. To make You the King of our lives is also a pledge to not bow down to any idol thing, even if it appears to be good on the outside. To worship You is without any forms of idolatry, for that is how You prescribed it from the beginning. Thank You for teaching us how to pray, Jesus, that we may come to know You in prayer and by reading Your words daily. I love You Lord. Amen.
Exodus 20:3-7 (KJV)
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
7 Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
For Catholics to remove the part on idolatry, 2nd Commandment, in the Ten Commandments is very evil in the sight of God.
The Catholic Church’s Ten Commandments is a modified version of Exodus 20. It is not the same thing, but a very slim down version of the real deal. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, I pray that the preaching of the cross will become meaningful in people's lives. May people understand that because of what You did for us, Jesus, that we have forgiveness of sins. Thank You God. In our confessions, Your mercy is extended upon us. What a great gift! You suffered for our sins, so that we don't have to in death. Wow, Praise God. Our life has purpose because of the pains You put upon Yourself for us. It is because of Your great love, that we can walk a new and not have to be held back because of our past. You have wiped the slate clean for everyone that believes in and follows You. All I can say is thank You Lord. And because of the resurrection, we have this newness of life. This hope leads us to walk differently and talk differently. We are no longer doing our own things, but are led by the Holy Spirit, in the ways that are righteous. It is because of Your presence, Lord, that are faith is alive and well. We aren't simply believers, but people that love You and honor You though our daily walk. To read the Bible daily, pray often and to do as You command is what we desire most. Your ways have become our ways and we cannot get enough of You. We want more and more of Your joy in our lives and less of the world. We want to have Your love with us always and proclaim it to others also. And because You have saved us from a life of sin and raised up into new life, we know that anyone can be saved. Your mercy and compassion see's through our wickedness and gives us potential for today and tomorrow. I love You Lord. Your gospel message is true. To learn from and teach about the cross is the power of God. It is my prayer that people will come to know this and leave any false gospel behind. Your salvation is worth leaving any false sense of security in this life behind. Thank You for leading me out of darkness and into Your light. It was worth it. Amen.
1 Corinthians 1:17-19 (KJV)
17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.
18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
The gospel is that Jesus died for our sins on the cross and was resurrected the third day. This is the true gospel of the Bible.
The preaching of the cross is what leads a person to repentance and to follow Jesus for salvation. We love God enough, as to never forget the price that Jesus paid for us. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, You are too good to us. We don't deserve Your great love, but You continue to show it to us each day that we pray and read the Bible. As we draw near unto You, Your mercy is for us, and there is no more guilt and shame, but forgiveness. Thank You God for Your compassion. So often do we do our own things and forget You, but You continue to convict us of our sins, that we would repent. This You do to draw us in from the world. You desire so much to save us, it is just our stubbornness that gets in the way of being saved. I am just so grateful that You never give up on me. You can see through the live that we are living right now and can see our potential, like You did mine. For this reason do You continually come to us in dreams, visions, prayer, the Bible, and through people, in order to wake us up to the state of destruction that we are in. You don't desire anyone to be sent off to hell, but these people are the ones that reject You. Your mercy was for them, but they didn't need or want it. Oh, how sorrowful this is when people think they are Ok in life, when really they need a Savior to help them. Surely, nobody can be safe in their current state, without The Holy Spirit guiding them. Lord, these people that neglect You for the things of this world are so confused and I pray that they will wake up to their sins and repent. As You don't wish for them to perish, I also don't wish any person to have to suffer in the lake of fire, one day. So I pray that more people will experience Your great mercy and join You and me in heaven forever. Surely, the Holy Spirit can lead us to You Lord and I pray that more people will be able to receive it. Then, will the lost be saved and come and be a part of Your Kingdom, oh Lord. I love You God. Amen.
John 14:18-21 (KJV)
18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.
20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.
21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
The Lord is so merciful to us as sinners. It is God that draws us to Him daily, that we would repent and be made clean.
God has given every believer that trusts in Him the Holy Spirit, which is the Spirit of truth, to guide their lives. The Spirit of God is our help mate in all things. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, I pray that people will make the right decision to believe in and follow You, before their life is over. I do not wish to see my family and friends go to hell, when they had a choice to pray and confess their sins to You. You are so good to us all and Your mercy is never ending. For that reason, people just need to be humble enough to poor their hearts out to You and Your forgiveness is given. Thank You Lord. Thank You for taking our sins upon Yourself and paying the price for them on the cross. It is because of what You have done, that we are cleansed by Your blood. Every wicked way is destroyed in our lives and You put us on the holy path when we believe. Thank You for responding to our needs and giving us so many chances, when we don't deserve it. Your mercy does endure forever and I am an example of a person that You have extended Your great mercy and compassion to. In my sins, I neglected my opportunity to repent so many times, but You stuck with me until time was ready. In my brokenness, You heard my cries and came to my rescue. I needed a Savior and knew that only You could save me. I love You Lord. I am so blessed to be set free from my addictions and have the Holy Spirit in my life. Now, my desires are not to give into the flesh, but to give into the Spirit. Your needs are most important and I wish to always do Your will above all else. Doing what is righteous brings me the greatest joy of all. I love to see others blessed by Your mighty hand, oh Lord. Thank You for coming into my life and using me for Your kingdom. I trust in You God. Amen.
Revelation 21:4-7 (KJV)
4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
I often wonder why so many people are living for the world and not for Jesus. Surely, there soul is at stake of going to hell!
If you have not given your life to Jesus yet, then why not do it today? Your salvation is at stake and the Lord is waiting!
