Suffer the lit
I believe that the Jewish and Christian people alike, when they fall on their knees and pray to God for His mercy, blessings, and tolerance are praying to the same divine entity, the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End.
God sent his Son for the edification and liberation of his chosen people, the Jewish people. They however, for the most part, rejected him as The Messiah.
God, in his infinite mercy made the provision that all who believed on the Gospel of Jesus Christ should be transformed, and through grace be brought into His kingdom:
That through the acceptance of his Son as the Lord of our lives, even the gentiles, through adoption, would be received as His people, the children of the One True God.
Grafted, if you will, onto the original vine, that of the Hebrew Nation.
That through Jesus Christ all could call God, our Father...ABBA.
~He Is God~
He is the First and Last,
The Beginning and the End!
He is the keeper of Creation and the Creator of all!
He is the Architect of the universe and the Manager of all times.
He always was, He always is, and He always will be ...
unmoved, Unchanged, Undefeated, and never Undone!
He was bruised and brought healing!
He was pierced and eased pain!
He was persecuted and brought freedom!
He was dead and brought life!
He is risen and brings power!
He reigns and brings Peace!
The world can't understand him,
The armies can't defeat Him,
The schools can't explain Him, and The leaders can't ignore Him.
Herod couldn't kill Him, The Pharisees couldn't confuse Him, and The people couldn't hold Him!
Nero couldn't crush Him, Hitler couldn't silence Him,
The New Age can't replace Him, and "Oprah" can't explain Him away!
He is light, love, longevity, and Lord.
He is goodness, Kindness, Gentleness, and God.
He is Holy, Righteous, mighty, powerful, and pure.
His ways are right,
His word is eternal,
His will is unchanging, and His mind is on me.
He is my Savior,
He is my guide, and He is my peace!
He is my Joy,
He is my comfort,
He is my Lord, and He rules my life!
I serve Him because His bond is love,
His burden is light, and His goal for me is abundant life.
I follow Him because He is the wisdom of the wise,
the power of the powerful,
the ancient of days, the ruler of rulers, the leader of leaders, the overseer of the overcomers, and is to come. And if that seems impressive to you, try this for size.
His goal is a relationship with ME!
He will never leave me,
never forsake me,
never mislead me,
never forget me,
never overlook me and
never cancel my appointment in His appointment book!
When I fall, He lifts me up!
When I fail, He forgives!
When I am weak, He is strong!
When I am lost, He is the way!
When I am afraid, He is my courage!
When I stumble, He steadies me!
When I am hurt, He heals me!
When I am broken, He mends me!
When I am blind, He leads me!
When I am hungry, He feeds me!
When I face trials, He is with me!
When I face persecution, He shields me!
When I face problems, He comforts me!
When I face loss, He provides for me!
When I face Death, He carries me Home!
He is everything for everybody everywhere, every time, and every way.
He is God, He is faithful. I am His, and He is mine!
My Father in heaven can whip the father of this world.
So, if you're wondering why I feel so secure, understand this...
He said it and that settles it.
God is in control, I am on His side,
and that means all is well with my soul.
Everyday is a blessing for GOD Is!
THE LORDS' PRAYER
Our Father, who
art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
And forgive us our debts,
As we also have forgiven our debtors;
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
TO THINK ABOUT THESE WORDS,
TO RECITE THEM SLOWLY,
TO SAVOR EACH LINE,
TO TASTE THE DEPTH OF MEANING,
TRULY THIS IS THE "PRAYER OF PRAYERS."
Prayer from the Model Prayer of Jesus:
Heavenly Father, I thank you that you have given me the power to become your little child. I trust you, Father, and I desire to become like a little child in your presence for I realize that whosoever does not receive your kingdom like a little child shall in no wise enter into it. I thank you that I have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but you have given me the Spirit of adoption, whereby I am able to cry, “Abba, Father.” Father, I adore you.
It is a privilege to be part of your family Father. Thank you for the great love with which you love me and accept me into the family of your beloved. Thank you for taking good care of me. Thank you for your faithfulness.
Your wonderful names declare your marvelous promises to me, Father. You are Almighty God and you never change. You are the Father of lights with whom there is no variableness nor shadow of turning. You are the Giver of every good and perfect gift. You are the eternal God of the universe and you have given me eternal life. Only you are worthy of worship because you are the majestic Ruler of all your marvelous creation. You are the God most high. All power in heaven and in earth is yours. You are my healer, the Great Physician, and by your stripes I am healed- made whole in every respect. You are my Provider, the Source of all my supply. You shower blessing upon me from your storehouse. You are always more than enough, the God of abundant life. You are righteousness. All my righteousness is as filthy rags, Lord, but through your righteousness I am washed clean. You have conquered the enemy in my life, Lord, and he no longer has access to me because of your shed blood on Calvary. You are my peace, and how I praise you that as I bring my petitions before you in faith and thanksgiving, you minister your peace which passes understanding. There is no longer any guilt or worry in my life because you are my peace. Thank you for being there whenever I need you, Lord, a very present help in time of trouble. You have sanctified me by setting me apart for your service and you are guiding me. You are my Good Shepherd and I shall never want for any good thing. Thank you, Father that you are the everlasting One, the eternal I Am, the first and the last. You are everything to me.
I crown you, Lord Jesus, as the King of kings and Lord of lords in my life. I submit my life to you by denying myself, taking up my cross and following you. I put you first in my life and give you complete control of all I am and have. I will dwell in your kingdom, where there is righteousness, joy, peace and love in the Holy Spirit, forevermore. Hallelujah!
I delight to do your will, O Lord. I will study Your Word and learn your ways. Give me the grace to obey your commandments and to follow you with all my heart. Thank you for revealing your will to me. I will obey you, Lord, as you unfold your will to me. May your will be done in me and in all the earth as it is in heaven. Keep me in the center of your will.
You have promised to supply my daily needs,
Father. How I thank you for your
faithfulness in my life. You will
never let me down. I present my
needs to you now, Lord, because I know you want to bless me and I realize you
are the Source of all I have or ever will have. Give me this day the following
needs in my life:
Thank you, Father. Please forgive me for those things in which I have failed you. I now bring my specific sins before you, confessing them in the Name of Jesus Christ, my Lord, who is the one mediator between me and you. I confess the following sins: ____________
Thank you for the wonderful gift of repentance that prepares the way for you to move in my life. Thank you for the wonderful blessing of forgiveness. I now consciously accept your wonderful cleansing and refreshing. Sin no longer has dominion over me. There is therefore now no condemnation to me as I continue to walk in your Spirit. I am pure, holy and blameless before you, in love. Thank you for setting me free. Laying aside every weight, and the sin that so easily besets me I run with patience the race that is set before me, looking unto you, Lord Jesus, the Author and Finisher of my faith.
As I continue in prayer, Lord, I realize that there are those who have something against me. Reveal to me every relationship in my life where problems exist between me and another. Father, through the power of your Spirit, I willingly forgive______________ for the wrongs they have committed against me. As you direct me, I will go to ______________
to seek forgiveness for the things I’ve done to wrong him/her/them. Thank you for the cleansing power of forgiveness. Keep me sensitive to your voice. Give me a pure heart, Father.
I know you will never lead me into temptation, Lord. I will prepare myself for the spiritual warfare that rages in our world today. I put on the whole armor you have provided for me. I gird my loins with your truth. On my chest I am wearing the breastplate of your righteousness. The gospel of peace covers my feet. I strap the shield of faith to my forearms so I will be able to quench all the enemy’s fiery darts. The helmet of your salvation protects my mind from all assaults. Thank you for the powerful weapon of your Word- the sword of the Spirit- with which I can take the offensive in the warfare against Satan and all the forces of evil. I will stand in the evil day, praying with all prayer and supplication through your Spirit, Lord. I will persevere in prayer, interceding for all saints.
I thank you for delivering me from evil, Lord. I do not need to fear anything or anyone, for you are my light and my salvation and you are always with me. You will never leave me nor forsake me. You are a mighty buckler to all those who trust in you. You will light my candle; you will enlighten my darkness. By your strength, Lord, I can and will run through a troop and I have leaped over a wall. Your way is perfect; your Word is tried. You gird me with strength and you make my way perfect. You teach my hands to war. You have girded me with strength unto the battle and you have delivered me. Hallelujah!
Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. I love you, Lord. I rejoice in you. How I thank you for all you have done in and through my life. It is good thing to give thanks unto you, O Lord. I sing praises to your name, O Most High. I rejoice in your loving kindness and your tender mercies. O Lord, you have made me glad through your work. You reign, O King! You are clothed with majesty and with strength. Your throne is established forever. I will praise you with my whole heart. Your works are honorable and glorious and your righteousness endures forever. Thank you for being my Father and My Lord. Thank you for giving me my daily bread. Thank you for delivering me from evil. Thank you for forgiving me. O Lord, my God, I will thank you and praise your forevermore. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
