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.

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
