Oh Lord, You deserve the highest praise. I once thought that I could never be good enough for You. I have done some horrible things. Thank You, for taking my debt from me. You didn’t have to die for my sins on the cross, but You did so because of Your love for me. You have given me a new life and it is amazing in every fashion of the word. Thank You for using me for Your kingdom. I know that many people are against me and would have me stop this work that You have started in my life. They don’t understand the importance of proclaiming the good news of the gospel to every person and in all nations. You have given me words to speak and in so doing, false teachings are exposed. Praise God! I know that this comes with much persecution. People will fight against me in these new desires from You, the most High God. So Lord, use me for Your kingdom. Whatever I have left in the tank that can be done to further the gospel in all this world. Lead my path, that many more people will be saved. I only desire to do Your will, God. It is my desire that people know how Great You are, God. Not to forsake You by way of their sinful lifestyle, but to give it all up to follow You, Jesus. I love You, Lord. Amen.
Isaiah 12:1,2 (KJV)
1 And in that day thou shalt say, O LORD, I will praise thee: though thou wast angry with me, thine anger is turned away, and thou comfortedst me.
2 Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.
May the LORD God be praised. We don’t downplay God and His Name, but give Him all the praise and honor.
Oh Lord, I pray that Your Spirit will become our teacher and not what other people have told us over time. In a world of false religions and false teachers, it can be hard to navigate away from this, but You are able to make a way for us. Because You love us, there is a way out of what is dark and ugly on the inside. Although things may appear as good on the outside, You are able to reveal the truth of what lies inside. This is the case with Mormonism. They appear as if they have it all together. They dress the part and act very religious, but their hearts are still far from You. And because they are so deep into their false doctrines and traditions, trying to lead one of them out of this is like pulling teeth. I have seen so many people who laugh at scoff at me that are Mormons. These people have hearts that are cold to the truth of God. Not only this, but the hardness of their hearts is keeping them from being saved. Lord, I know that each person has a weakness when it comes to letting truth in. They may not want to do this, but when You convict them of what is true and what is false, they can either deny the Holy Spirit or leave Mormonism. This I pray that they do this for Your sake. I love You, Jesus. Amen.
Isaiah 11:1-3 (KJV)
1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:
2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD ;
3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:
The Spirit of the LORD rested upon Jesus and He did the work of the Father. Therefore, the Father is Spirit.
Oh Lord, I love and honor You. Thank You for coming into my life and for giving me wisdom. I am not always the best with words. In times past I would stutter and have no control over it. Thankfully all that has been changed since I came to You in faith. In this weakness, You have made me strong. As I was unable to speak to people with boldness and clarity, I am now able to do so with much confidence. If I am bold to speak to people about You, Jesus, You have done the work in my life. I am simply Your vessel, whom You are using for Your kingdom. I give You thanks for having faith and confidence in me, when there are billions of other people You could have chosen. I know that I have a lot to learn still. I have much to grow in the faith as time goes on. My knowledge of Your Words can still be increased as time goes by. I love Your words in the Bible, for in them comes great power from on High. It is a pleasure to introduce You and the Bible to others. Only then can people see You in scripture and know that You are real and still alive. There are millions of false gods out there, but none of them can speak to us but You. Holy, holy, is the Lord, God, Almighty. I give You the highest praise! Lead me safely home, Jesus. Help me fight the good fight in the faith and not give into temptation. I love You more, Jesus. You are my God, and I worship You. Amen.
Isaiah 10:11-13 (KJV)
11 Shall I not, as I have done unto Samaria and her idols, so do to Jerusalem and her idols?
12 Wherefore it shall come to pass, that when the Lord hath performed his whole work upon mount Zion and on Jerusalem, I will punish the fruit of the stout heart of the king of Assyria, and the glory of his high looks.
13 For he saith, By the strength of my hand I have done it, and by my wisdom; for I am prudent: and I have removed the bounds of the people, and have robbed their treasures, and I have put down the inhabitants like a valiant man:
If a person goes in and changes even one word or sentence in a chapter of the Bible, it changes the entire context.
Oh Lord, Your words are so sacred. Why can’t everyone see this that says they believe in You? How is it that certain individuals can ascertain that their prophets can change the Bible as much as they please? This is so wrong and denies what You have said about preserving Your Words throughout all generations. How hard is it to see how beautiful Your Words are in scripture when we read it daily? It isn’t hard. Sure, there was a time when I would fall asleep during my time reading the Bible. The same thing happened at church. But this was because I didn’t have the true gospel message in my life. I was being fed a lie through the Mormon church. Thankfully, You freed me from this bondage. I am no longer tied down by their rules, regulations, covenants, and man-made works and doctrines. Thank You for opening my eyes to the false teachings and for allowing me a second chance to be saved. I was on the path of destruction those many years in Mormonism, but You didn’t give up on me. You saw the person I would become. And since You came into my life I have been more and more engaged with You, the Bible, and talking with others about You. You put this fire in me and nobody can put it out. I love You, Jesus. I give You praise. Amen.
Isaiah 9:1,2 (KJV)
1 Nevertheless the dimness shall not be such as was in her vexation, when at the first he lightly afflicted the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, and afterward did more grievously afflict her by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, in Galilee of the nations.
2 The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.
When a person adds to the Bible it changes the entire story and slowly corrupts God’s Word until it is unrecognizable.
Oh Lord, I pray that people will learn to understand the Bible. Not just from other people, but through the power of the Holy Spirit. Speak to their heart, they stop relying on every ounce of doctrine they hear from people and their church. May people know the importance of searching the scriptures for themselves. I love Solomon’s desire to only gain wisdom from You instead of anything else that he could have received. Truly, you are not a genie, for that is the world’s way of putting You in a box. I rebuke that type of evil thinking. I know that You are able to hear our prayers in the good and bad times of our lives. No matter how many times we reach out to You in our Bible study, prayer, worship, and doing Your will, there are answers. Maybe not in our time, but in Yours. All I desire is to know Your will for my everyday life. This way I will continue in Your ways all my days. As You speak to me I listen. This way I can rear up my family in the same things and tell others also. Thank You for teaching me these many years. I don’t know how much time I have left on this earth, but in the time I do have I will go out and serve You with all my heart, mind, and strength. I love You, Lord. You deserve our praise. Amen.
Isaiah 7:14 (KJV)
14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
The devil has done a work through the Book of Mormon, which is to rename instances of LORD to Lord.
Oh Lord, I pray that people’s hearts will be turned to You. That more people will stop giving themselves over to every sound of doctrine that appears good on paper, but what the Bible says is true. God, help people come to the light. Scatter the darkness and the strongholds on people’s lives. May people learn what is true and unlearn what is false. I pray that this doesn’t have to be a chore or come with any resistance. If people just knew what they were doing, they would gladly give up many things for the sake of following You, Jesus. Heaven is where most people want to go, but giving up what is comfortable in people’s lives is like life or death to them. Will they say this when they die and wake up in hell? Absolutely not. I can just imagine the regrets that people will have on that day. We will all come before You, Jesus, in judgment, but only a few people will be waiting in paradise, while most people will be suffering. Lord, I pray that You will spark fear when it comes to sinning against You and Your awesome sight. Then, will people learn to fear You, God, and stop willfully sinning. You are the God of patience and opportunities galore. Thank You for never giving up on me and others. I love You. Amen.
Isaiah 6:8-10 (KJV)
8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.
9 And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not.
10 Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.
A thing that is common among false prophets is their willingness to change the Bible in order for it to conform to their false beliefs.
Oh Lord, I pray that people will understand how sacred the Bible really is. How when it speaks of You in a certain way, then we ought to pay close attention, for You are being lifted up and highly exalted. Surely, Your Name is “LORD”. Yahweh! I give You praise and honor this day and forever. I am lost without You. You have brought into my life fountains of eternal life, because it is You, Jesus, that will take me to heaven. There is light that shines brightly, for You go before me on my path. Darkness has been scrattered and now I can help others draw near unto You also. Give me wisdom, God. Lead me from temptation. Surely, the devil would love to take me down with him in hell. Many of Your very elect have fallen for his lies, but I will not have any part of it. You mean more to me than all the riches, fame, and earthly pleasures. Be near me, Lord, and never let me go. Although my flesh is weak, I am strong to resist the devil and his hellish schemes. In my defense, I say, flee Satan! Your Name is power. Although we live anxiously waiting for Your return, I know that it is soon at hand. I love You, Jesus. Amen.
Isaiah 5:7-9 (KJV)
7 For the vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah his pleasant plant: and he looked for judgment, but behold oppression; for righteousness, but behold a cry.
8 Woe unto them that join house to house, that lay field to field, till there be no place, that they may be placed alone in the midst of the earth!
9 In mine ears said the LORD of hosts, Of a truth many houses shall be desolate, even great and fair, without inhabitant.
If someone ever changes the name of God from “LORD” to “Lord”, they are also desecrating His sacred Name.
Oh lord, I pray that people will come to enjoy Your Words in the Bible instead of wanting to change how it reads. Truly, what is written is a lamp unto my feet. You have changed me from the inside out just by staying connected to my reading on a day-to-day basis. Thank You for hearing my prayers these many years and for giving me wisdom each time I read. I love Your ways God and especially what You have said in the Bible. I often hear people say that they believe in You and how You are their Lord and Savior, but do they know what You have said? No. When asked about the Bible, many of them have one at home but never read it. This is so sad and leads me to believe that these people are unsaved, but wish they were. And so I wonder if people knew what the Bible says if they would go deeper with You or quit believing altogether. Many people are shy and do not want to give their lives to You with another person present and I pray that this was the case for this man I talked to yesterday. Lord, have Your way in his life. He knew what we were saying was true about You, Jesus, and now it is his opportunity to deny himself and come to the feet of the cross I pray for his salvation and for the salvation of many more people. I love You, Jesus. Amen.
Isaiah 4:3-6 (KJV)
3 And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that remaineth in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, even every one that is written among the living in Jerusalem:
4 When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst thereof by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning.
5 And the Lord will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all the glory shall be a defence.
6 And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the day time from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a covert from storm and from rain.
God deserves the glory, not any person or anything. To say any different means that the Lord is not with you in your thoughts and beliefs.
