A Prayer to Forgive Those

 

Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. Colossians 3:13 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Father I deeply desire to forgive other as You forgive me.

Help me to forgive those in my care when they are selfish, ungrateful and abusive towards me. I need this to prevent me from having my heart filled with hatred and bitterness. If the heart is filled with this then it is impossible to care in a loving manner.

Help me to stay focused on the fact that in serving them, I am serving You and You are always appreciative of my compassionate efforts.

do not allow them to control you

But, Father just as You specify that repentance must come before forgiveness so too must there be repentance before the healing is possible.                 

Please send the Holy Spirit to convict them and bring them unto repentance less their attitude condemn the to Hell.

Thank you that You are always there for me to cry out my anguish to when those in my care are selfish, abusive and ungrateful. I humbly request this in the name of He who forgave the repentant sinner on the cross beside Him, Jesus Christ. Amen 

Those who refuse to repent are also those who will continue the abuse. Joseph a son of Jehovah

 

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

In Exchange for You

 Others were given in exchange for you  I traded their lives for yours because you are precious to me.  You are honored, and I love you. Isaiah 43:4  The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation  

Jehovahs most precious son was given in exchange for you and me.   

Read it like this Jesus was exchanged for me. Jehovah traded Jesus, His most precious sons life for mine. Because I am precious to Him. I am honoured and Jehovah (and Jesus) loves me.  

How can I not love one who loves me so deeply as Jesus.  Joseph a son of Jehovah           

That not only sounds nice but should be ingrained in our thoughts before we say or do anything. How could we say or do anything that would not bring glory and honour to them as a gift of appreciation to them for their extravagant gift of love to me.

i love you my lord

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) – Is. 49:26, 60:16 that through Your precious blood, suffering, death and glorious resurrection You have redeemed me. May my dedicated life unto You always bring You glory, honour and little lost sheep. I pray this in Your merciful name. Amen

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I am a Son of God.

a duet of adoring babes

 “How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!” 1 John 3:1.The Holy Bible, The New International Version

Did I get you?

Do you think I said “I am THE son of God?

No I am not THE son of God, but rather A son of God.

When I accepted Jesus Christ as my savior and agree to live according to Gods divine rules for membership in this Holy Family (Gods Law) I became a full fledged member of a divine family.

“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” Luke 10:27 The Holy Bible, The New International Version

When you are willing to do this, you are granted entrance into the best family. A loving Father who will always take care of you. A fantastic big brother who gave His all for you and the best Guidance Councillor, The Holy Spirit. When you join this family you are never alone, you are always loved.

What more could you ask for?

So here is the secret entrance key: “Jesus, I know I am a sinner and have messed up. I need Your love and guidance in my life. I know You died for me because You believe I am so special. Thank you. I accept You as my king, as my savior and as my best friend. I ask You to come into my life and teach me to be a good child of God. In Your loving name I pray. Amen.”

Did you do it?

Good for you.

Congratulations, now you are a royal member of the most special family. Now if you want a deeper relationship with the big three, and who doesn’t (The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit) may I suggest you listen to radio stations like Praise 1065,Joyfm, go to crosswalk.com and once you join for free, click on audio and listen to the music. Go to Oneplace.com, listen to the wonderful sermons there (I like going to seromonaudio.com and listening to Alistair Begg, Charles Spurgon Vance Havener and A.W. Tozer ), subscribe to newsletters like Our Daily Bread, Daily for a few. Why not go to Praize and join a pen pal club?

When you listen to and read these every day and incorporate them into your life, your life will change for the better.

No I don’t promise it, Jesus does and He NEVER breaks His promises.

When you become a Christian, you become royalty. This means you also have royal duties unto the King of Kings. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (our loving Father in Heaven) for blessing me with adopting me into Your loving royal family. Thank you Jesus for Your supreme sacrifice that made it all possible. May I be blessed with opportunities to bring more into this most amazing family. I exalt You both and sincerely request this in the name of my big brother with whom I adore Jesus Christ. Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

Are You Willing To

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND

Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there. Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives. Galatians 5:24-25 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

In order for us to have a deep relationship with Jehovah first we must sacrifice the most important thing in our lives, we must sacrifice ourselves. Self is the opaque veil that hides the face of God from us. It can be removed only in spiritual experience, never by mere instruction.A. W. Tozer

Are you willing to perform that difficult sacrifice?

Let’s face it, without Christ everything we do we do for ourselves isn’t it ?

In our relationships isn’t it really all about ourselves?

Oh we may be dedicated husbands or wives, we may be dedicated parents, but what are our motives?

Isn’t it to satisfy a need to be loved and respected?

When we have all the latest toys isn’t it to satisfy ourselves or to impress people so as to inflate our ego?

On the other hand when we sacrifice ourselves unto God we put Him first.

Christ first, others second, self last is every Christians motto. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now why would we do something stupid like that you ask?

Every Christian will reply it is in gratitude for His deep divine love for us.

Now, that does not sound stupid does it? 

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! 1 John 3:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Only one life, so live it well, And keep your candle trimmed and bright; Eternity, not time, will tell The radius of that candle’s light. —Miller

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) Psalms 10:16 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation for blessing me with the honor of being Your humble, loyal servant. Thank you Holy Spirit for teaching me how to always put my Beloved King first and for blessing me with the strength to do so. I exalt You my Holy Beloved in Your majestic name. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

One of the Most Important Things

city shrounded in mist in the mountains seen through the forest Hong Kong-crop

Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. May your gracious Spirit lead me forward on a firm footing. Psalm 143:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation.

One of the most important things learned in life is that our greatest lessons are learned from our failures.

Just look up any invention and find out how many times the inventor failed before finally having success.

When we mess up we fess up and Jehovah forgives us, picks us up and tells us okay, you messed up, now learn your lesson and continue on towards you maturity in your walk towards Heaven.

If you have not learned your lesson, do not worry, Jehovah will allow it to be repeated until it is learned.

I believe failure is the greatest tool the Holy Spirit uses to teach us. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The more we learn from our failures and how the Holy Spirit guides us to success from them them more we become firmly established upon the path to Heaven the Holy Spirit is guiding us on. Joseph a son of Jehovah

That is one of the greatest crimes parents and teachers commit with children. They do not let them learn from their failures.

Prayer:Thank you Holy Spirit Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with Your wise, powerful and effective manner of teaching me. May it always help to evolve my relationship with my loving Heavenly Father, Jehovah loving big brother Jesus and You the most amazing Teacher ever closer and stronger.                                                                                                                 I give thanks and humbly ask of these blessings in the name of the best Teacher Jesus Christ. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

They Do So.

praying in chinese church

 As you help us by your prayers. 2 Corinthians 1:11 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

Some folks mistakenly think that praying for others does not do any good.

They do so. I can recall numerous times when my prayer for others was answered in miraculous ways (and yes, they were miracles).

You need not look far to see folks that need a prayer. Ask them if you can pray for them and what their prayer request is. Then write it down. Keep in touch at least once a week. Let them know you are continuing to pray for them and see if there is anything else you can do for them (Jehovah will usually provide you with resources to help them and even if He does not the request often encourages them as much as the prayer).

Praying for others every day is an important intricate part of every Christians prayer. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Holy Spirit Shammah ( The Lord is Present) Hebrews 13:5 always be present during my intersession for other saints and guide me to those who need me to be their prayer warrior. I humbly request this in the name of He who taught me how to pray for others Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Ask Them If

 

WISDOM LASTS AND ETERNITYHe who spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is careful to discipline him. Proverbs 13:24, New International Version

Now we need to understand this.

When children are young, they will push the limits to see what they can get away with.

First they must be warned such behavior is bad and explain why it is bad. Please do not just tell them it is bad or they must do it because you said so. Take the time to explain why they must do this or must not do that. It is even better when you share with them your personal experience so it makes it more real to them.

If they continue to push the envelope they must receive corporal punishment. One good swat will suffice most of the time or taking away a privilege like no mobile phone for a week.

Then sent to a quiet place to contemplate what they have done for about ten minutes. .

After that go sit down beside them. Hug them. Tell them you love them and it really hurt you to do what you had to do. Ask them if they understand. Usually they do. If they do, not try another way to explain it to them.

This is the method my mom used with us kids and I have used with children many times (being a teacher they were not my students but I loved them as if they were my own children). I speak from experience when I say they will love and respect you for it.

After that when they are naughty all I have to do is raise my voice in a firm controlled way to tell them to stop it and they instantly stop. Not out of fear, but rather out of love.

Without discipline there is chaos. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:Please Jehovah Abba (God my Father) bless me to emulate You in the same manner in which You wisely teach Your children. I deeply desire them to be a blessing upon this earth not a curse. I humbly request this in the name of my big brother Jesus Christ. Amen

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The Greatest Make Over

work-in-progress

 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come 2 Corinthians 5:17 The Holy Bible, The New  Living Translation

How would you like the greatest make over?

When we give ourselves to Jesus He will slowly remove the old ugly you and create a new beautiful you.

Now this is not referring to making you into a super model.

No.

You will be created into a new beautiful saint.

Saint: one of God’s chosen and usually Christian people Webster’s Dictionary.

Now this will not happen over night. For some it will happen quickly, while for others it will take longer. But, the wonderful thing is that your transformation will be a work in progress until we reach Heaven. The Holy Spirit will be crushing and smashing the filth in us to be replaced by the heart and mind that is transforming into a oneness with Christ. Sometimes that will be painful. When we come out of the transformation though, we will be more beautiful than ever imagined.

Of course we will get our final beauty treatment when we get to Heaven and become transformed into Heavenly bodies.

Sound good?

Then why not give your heart to Jesus and join our Christian family.

“I advise you to obey only the Holy Spirit’s instructions. He will tell you where to go and what to do, and then you won’t always be doing the wrong things your evil nature wants you to. For we naturally love to do evil things that are just the opposite from the things that the Holy Spirit tells us to do, and the good things we want to do when the Spirit has His way with us are just the opposite of our natural desires” (Galatians 5:16,17) The Holy Bible, New Living Testament.

Belonging to Jehovahs family is belonging enjoying the supreme love affair. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank You Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) Isaiah 40:28 for sending the Holy Spirit to preform the difficult task of molding this sometimes challenging creation of Yours into the beautiful creation You intend for me to become. I praise You in the name of He whose blood is the catalyst for this amazing metamorphism Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year.

A Daring and Beautiful Creative Reversal.

jESUS'S LOVE

He personally carried our sins in His body on the cross [willingly offering Himself on it, as on an altar of sacrifice], so that we might die to sin [becoming immune from the penalty and power of sin] and live for righteousness; for by His wounds you [who believe] have been healed. 1 Peter 2:24 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When Christ was hanging on the cross He was suffering ridicule by those who hated Him. Unimaginable agony in His body. Piercing heart ache watching His loved ones watch Him die and no doubt demons laughing at Him. Three days later He rose from grave and fulfilled Jehovahs prearranged glorious victory to bring all of His children into His family of every race, color and creed.

Talk about a turn of events huh?

“In a daring and beautiful creative reversal, God takes the worst we can do to Him and turns it into the very best he can do for us.”Malcolm Guite

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) that the worse possible manner of death known to the world was used to accomplish the most beautiful one in eternity. In Your amazing name I exalt You. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year.

Prayers for Caregivers-A Prayer to Speak With

loving to each other

A Prayer to Speak with Love and Respect

Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God.” Mark 10:27 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

My Love please bless me with the ability to communicate with those You have placed in my care in a manner in which they will understand what I am saying.

Please bless me with the ability to understand what they are trying to communicate with me.

Please my Beloved bless me that You will guide my words this day to bring encouragement and love.

Please strengthen me to bide my tongue to not lash out with hurtful words when disputes erupt. When the fires start to flare when they are being stubborn and obstinate, please bless me to close my eyes and to call out unto You to bring peace into the conversation.

And with the wisdom to know when to walk away because of the futility in the conversation.

Bless me with the ability to come back later and speak with respectful authority to which they must succumb to.

Please bless us to be loving and respectful towards each other as You and I are loving and respectful towards each other.

I humbly request this in the name of He whose speech was always respectful and loving Jesus Christ. Amen
