Oh Lord, I pray that people will decide today to give themselves to You fully. May they no longer put one foot in Your kingdom and the other in the world. I know that to live our lives for You, we must be more than talk, but also walk the walk. And help us all to prioritize our time better each day, that we may find ample amount of time to read the Bible, pray, and to serve You with our whole hearts. The devices now-a-days have taken many people away from You, and I pray that they may return to You once again. Sure, there are good things that come with TV, our phones and computers, but there are also many evil things that go with them as well. One thing that I know of, Lord, is that they are addicting. Once a good show comes on, then we want to watch the entire season. And once our favorite sports team starts playing, we don’t want to miss seeing any of their games. Even apps on our phones have become a hit for people, where they can't stop playing and talking about them. And when was the last time that they opened the Bible and acted this way, God? What I see here are people that are excited for things that the world gives them, instead of being excited for what You can lead them to do. This is really disturbing and I pray that there will be a breakthrough in people's lives, before their time is up. Otherwise, they will have gotten the joy they wanted in those things and then be disappointed when they face You in judgment. Lord, I know that only the things that You offer me has true joy in it. I also know that salvation can only come from You, Jesus. Therefore, I give You my whole heart each day, for other things deprive me from Your presence. I love You God. Amen.
1 Corinthians 10:14 (KJV)
14 Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.
If anything is coming before God, then it is an idol. How much time is given towards other things and not the Bible and prayer?
Earlier I mentioned the things we could be doing that are only time wasters, of which take our precious time away from God. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, I pray that everyone that desires to be saved will come unto You today. May they desire to walk apart from the darkness, that You may guide them in Your light. Only when You give us eyes to see are we able to do what is righteous and stop doing what is evil in our own eyes. Truly, our sins are what weigh us down and keep us from following You, and I pray that if anyone is under bondage now because of an addiction, that You will cast it out in Your mighty Name, Jesus. Though they may be afflicted because of such things now, I know that You have the power to deliver them from the sins that they have committed. So convict them of what they did was wrong, that they may come humbly to You in prayer, in all their confessions. I pray that it may be sincere and that they may come unto You for a refreshing of the Holy Spirit in their lives. What You did for us on the cross is so powerful, since any person can be saved because of it. Because You paid the price for our sins, Lord, those that follow You and do as You say are saved. This can't be any better scripted. What a great God You are. I was so unworthy when I called upon Your Name for salvation. I was broken and tattered because of the sexual sins I had committed. Then, as I raised my voice to the heavens and cried out to You, Lord, You heard me. I was not left alone to suffer, because of my guilt and shame, but You rescued me. You took me by the hand and carried me out of the old life I was in and placed me on the right path. Only You could redeem a lost soul like me. Thank You, Lord. I owe all to You. May there be more salvations and many more souls be saved. To declare Your great Name and showing love to others brings me the greatest joy of all. Truly, You know that I love You and care for You with all my heart. I praise You, God. Amen.
Romans 7:4-6 (KJV)
4 Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.
5 For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.
6 But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.
True joy is found in the Lord, not in the things of this world. His love is everlasting and nothing else fulfills us like He does.
When it comes to our new life in Christ, Paul described this new walk in great detail in Romans, chapter 7. How we are married to Christ when we believe in Him. Continue Reading
Revelation 11:16-17 (KJV)
16 And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,
17 Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.
On this Thanksgiving, I give thanks to the Lord, my God, for my family, my job, and for His many blessings from above.
Oh Lord, I am so grateful for everything You have done for me, my family, my friends, and all those people that You have brought into my life over the years. Thank You also for hearing my prayers and for blessing and healing those people that were in need. Surely, the day that You came into my life, You have not left me, but have been there every day to lift up my burdens, that they may be light. I have not had to worry about my life getting to difficult, for there has always been peace and joy through Your presence. I may have been sick and had different things go south, but You have always been the person I needed to cry unto for mercy and healing. Thank You for leading me out of the darkness and for bringing me into Your light. Because You are near me, I don't have to worry about addictions and bad habits creeping back into my life. This is because You have kept the enemy far from me, and for that I am very appreciative. My family has been doing so good over these past few years and You were the only one that could supply such happiness. Thank You so much for bringing good health to my wife and kids. I may be sick right now, but I know that You will heal me in Your own timing. I just pray that more people will think on You this day and forever. May they remember the good things You have done for them also. Thank You, Lord, for the cross. Because of Your payment for sins, I am forgiven. There is mercy because of your kindness and compassion. What a wonderful God you are. No one is like You. I love You, Lord. Amen.
Psalm 107:1,2 (KJV)
1 O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
2 Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;
Give thanks unto the Lord. He is so good to us and we ought to lift Him up in praise. Thank Him for His goodness and mercy.
Every person that is free from any type of addiction or bad habit in their life ought to give God thanks and show their gratitude towards Him. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, I pray that people would be willing to put off anything in their lives that is holding them back from You. More specifically, I am speaking of sins, addictions, and unforgiveness. Convict these people of the things that they need to work on, that they may come boldly to the cross and follow You, Jesus. I know from experience, as You know also, that while walking in darkness, I am unable to do as You say. It is always my own desires getting in the way. What I think is right always gets in the way of living the right way that You have prescribed for me. Therefore, I am so grateful that You have rescued me while taking me out of the life of sin I was in. You also heard my cries and had mercy for my soul. Thank You for showing such kindness and love for my life. Though I was not able to forgive and show the same mercy to others as You did for me, I was amazed that You still had compassion for my life. Instead of judging me because of where I was, You saw the potential in my life. I may not have had the capacity to let go of my barriers then, because of fear, but because of Your great love for me, all those walls have been torn down in Your mighty Name, Jesus. Thank You, Lord. There is no more fear, but boldness in my life now for others and Your kingdom. There are no more hard feelings towards anyone that has hurt me but only love for them. I am able to forgive because You forgave me first. What a great God You are. I was lost and You found me. There was not much going for me, but You picked me up and showed me the way. If I am anything and have accomplished things now, it is because You dwell in my life. I owe all to You, Jesus. My life is yours. I am so happy now, and it is because Your love dwells with me. Thank You for filling me up with Your joy. I love You. Amen.
Colossians 3:12,13 (KJV)
12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
