The Father Cried Out.

At once the father cried out. He said with tears in his eyes, “Lord, I have faith. Help my weak faith to be stronger! Mark 9:24 The Holy Bible, The New Life Translation

My Love, there are certain parts of my life I refuse to surrender unto You. It is because of lack of trust that You can or will deliver me from them. Please forgive me and strengthen my complete and total trust in You. As well Poppa, these destructive things have been a part of me I am afraid to let them go. Please bless me with Your gentle but strong assurance You have something better to replace them with.

I pray this prayer in the name of He with whom my faith in will lead me to Your Heavenly home, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the faith to let go and let God purify you of your hurt, anger and worry. Joseph a son of Jehovah

To My Dear Cherished

In the morning, O Lord, I will direct my song and my prayer unto You and will look up. (Psalm 5:3)

To My dear cherished Poppa : Good morning Poppa This is the day that You have made and I rejoice and be glad for the gift of it.

With gratitude, I thank You for preserving my life for one more day.

With gratitude, I thank you for Your ultimate gift of love for me, in the form of Your Son and the sacrifice of His life on my behalf. Because of this overwhelming gift that I often cannot comprehend, I humbly submit to You.

I know Lord, that I am a mere human and cannot instruct You, but you Lord bless me with The Holy Spirit to instruct me.

So teach me Your ways that I may rely on Your steadfast faithfulness. Teach me to number my days and to use my time wisely. I don’t know what this day holds, but I know that You hold the day.

It was you that laid the foundations of the Earth and therefore understands every part of it. I know that you keep the sun in the sky, the stars in place, and have created this Earth for me to inhabit and enjoy.

Throughout this day, may I be always be keenly aware of Your presence in everything I do – as I commute to work, drop children off at school, keep house and speak with my neighbors.

May my life be a living example and may others see Christ in me.

There are many that are hurting in this world – may I be a salve to someone today Lord, in a way that I can’t even imagine.

May my words be seasoned with salt and minister grace to all that hear.

May my actions be aligned with your Word.

I pray for wisdom that is peaceable, gentle, and approachable, with lots of mercy and fairness. You said an unlimited supply of wisdom is available to me if I simply ask, I so humbly request for wisdom to know how to deal with the many people and situations that will cross my path.

I pray for protection throughout this day; protect from harm and evil; go before me, to the left and right of me and behind me. Guide my steps so that I walk worthy of Your calling throughout this day. May I always be sensitive to Your promptings – whether it shows up as a gentle tug or a strong conviction. I pray for reconciliation in families, in nations and to You.

I pray that all may come to know you and be reconciled back to You.

Poppa, you know my faults and my flaws, please forgive me for being unkind with my words and my thoughts; forgive me for being self-serving; forgive me for holding on to old wounds instead of giving them to You.

Please forgive me, Poppa. When I am overwhelmed, confused, unsure, and restless, help me run to Your Word, The Holy Bible.

May your Word come alive to me so that it is a living guide in every situation I encounter this day.

Help me, Poppa, to remember the promises of your Word and bring the right passage to my remembrance for the situation I encounter. I acknowledge Poppa that I need to spend more time with You reading and praying so that I am prepared for whatever the day brings. Poppa I know that your Word is indeed a light unto my feet and a light unto the path You have chosen for me to walk this day .

Please remove fear and anxiety. from my heart and mind . As believers You have not given me a spirit of fear, but of love power and a sound mind. So when I are fearful, please remind me of Your love for me and use that love as the impetus to love others and see situations differently; may I tap into the power that you have given me, for I am never alone because You have not left me comfortless.

May Your wisdom be the underpinnings for my sound mind.

May I remember that I do not have to be anxious and when I am tempted to be anxious or worrisome, may I verbalize my concerns to you and then leave them there as You taught me to do. Worry does me no good and limits me, and You do more with my worry than I ever could. So please help me to turn all of my anxious thoughts and nerve-wracking situations over to You; to truly do that and trust that You are working. That You are working all things together for my good because You love me; that You are working in ways that I cannot comprehend because Your ways always supersede mine. And that in this working You are molding me continually into masterpieces fit for Your use.

Thank You for increasing my faith and capacity to love You by being loving towards others just as You are loving towards me.

As a child of yours Lord, I know that I am Your masterpiece though sometimes I feel so far from it. Please help me to remember my worth in You when I’m faced with challenging situations.

When I feel depressed, help me to remember that I am fearfully and wonderfully made in Your image , a replica of You and that You loved me so much You thought that I was worth dying for.

I do not know anyone that would die for me, but Your beautiful Son, my best friend did, and I’m eternally grateful and humbled for His supreme gift of love towards me.

For the unseen, Poppa, I thank you. You are beyond understanding, You are abundant, you are mine, and I am Yours. I totally and completely submit everything in my life to You today,

I humbly request this in the name of He who humbly went to the cross for me, Jesus Christ. Amen.

May your heart, mind and feet walk hand in hand with Christ this day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Trying to Pollute Our

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense Psalms 89:18) that because You had enemies pursue You, You understand what it is like to be hounded by the wicked.

Just as You stood for what is right and opposed what was wrong You had more enemies than friends. So, You understand what we experience by the wicked in our society.

Just as You encountered many phonies trying to lead the many astray You know what we have to deal with, with the politically correct liberals in our society today trying to pollute our childrens minds.

Because You have encountered all these wicked attacks You know how to protect us from them and how to give us the weapons to defend ourselves from them.

If need be, You send angels to protect us. No matter what they do to our earthly bodies our eternal spiritual bodies belong to You and at the proper time, You shall send angles to usher us into our eternal Heavenly Home.

Because of these truths I am encouraged to go out into the dark world and shine Your light to all those that are encountered. Those that are receptive You will guide into the light as well. That that reject Your light You shall protect me from.

All praise and glory unto You my mightiest Warrior King. I Your name I exalt Thee. Amen

‘May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you  and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.’ Numbers 6:22-27 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Why We All Need

The Father is the One Who judges you by what you do. 1 Peter 1:17 The Holy Bible, the New Life Version

We all come from dysfunctional families, that is why we all need Christ.

Yes, we all have inherited addictions like alcoholism and bad traits like stubbornness but that does not excuse our behaviour.

When we surrender to Christ, He burns those off and replaces them with Holy addictions, like desiring sharing what it is like to spend time with Jesus instead of being a tongue wagger- gossiper and depending upon the Holy Spirit to bless us with self control instead of stupidly going in debt buying things we do not need.

This is not a one off experience but one that lasts a life time.

I have walked with Christ for forty years and He is still burning of undesirable traits and replacing them with righteous ones.

“Do not remember the former things, Or ponder the things of the past. “Listen carefully, I am about to do a new thing, Isaiah 43:18-19 The Holy Bible, The New Living Version

Now do not be discouraged when those around you – especially family and old friends – laugh at you when you begin this transformation experience. Many will vilify and hate you. You will have to walk away from them and towards Christ. You are responsible unto Christ for your actions, not them.

“Above all the grace and gifts that Christ gives to his beloved is that of overcoming self.” — Francis of Assisi

It is extremely difficult but the big three are there to help you, encourage you, and guide you. They are of course: Jehovah our loving Father, Jesus Christ, our best friend and the Holy Spirit our teacher, guidance Councillor, healers, comforter, encourager and strengthener.

“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

Listen to them as they guide you on the difficult road to Heavens Gate instead of those that are on the Highway to Hell.

Do you get excited about investing the time, talent, and resources God has given you this day, so on that day you will hear Him say, ‘Well done good and faithful servant?'”Terry A. Parker

I do not care what he says, she says or they say, I care about what Christ says. And then obeying His wise voice. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah, Jesus and Holy Spirit ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You – Judges 6:12 ) for blessing me with Your continuous presence as You transform me into the beautiful child You desire for me to be. I exalt You in the name of the most beautiful Son, Jesus Christ. Amen

But the Lord is faithful; he will strengthen you and guard you from the evil one. 2 Thessalonians 3:3 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

I Called Out Unto

In my distress I prayed to the Lord,and the Lord answered me and set me free. Psalms 118:5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

There has been so many times in my dedicated service unto our Heavenly King where the stress was so bad it felt like I was going to literally explode. On my knees with rivers of tears rushing down my exhausted cheeks and shaking hands lifted to the Heavens I called out unto our Beloved Poppa in Heaven to release me from this pain, anguish, frustration, and exhaustion.

Most times He refused.

Instead He answered me with the same phrase that washes all the distress and exhaustion from my body and spirit and left me completely enveloped in His Divine peace and love. “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.”  2 Corinthians 12:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Divine grace is described as : the free and unmerited favoror the recieving of goodness from God The Free Dictionary

Jehovah may not free you from your circumstance but He will walk with you through them and you will be blessed with loving and respecting Him ever more.

When Jehovah puts you in the furnace of affliction, He is right in there with you. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You Judges 6:12 ) for walking with me through all my trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares. We have walked this road so many times before that I have complete and total confidence in Your presence whenever that painful road must be travelled again. I exalt You in the name of He who has experianced all that I have and so much more when He walked amongst us, Jesus Christ.Amen.

“We are Christians and strangers on this earth. Let none of us be frightened; our native land is not this world.” —St. Augustine of Hippo

The Healer Of

I thank You,Jehovah Rapha (God my healer Jeremiah 33:6 ) the Healer of all our diseases. My body is the temple of Your Spirit, so I pray for protection from that which could bring harm to me physically. Please guard me from and all stresses that steal my emotional strength and lower my immunity to fight infection. Please me of all past traumas that affect my present or future mental and physical health. Please teach me to discipline my mind and body so that I will grow stronger and increase my mental and physical stamina. When challenges arise, I am not afraid because You have blessed me with a spirit of power, of love, and a sound mind.

As the Great Physician, You know me so well. You have ordained every part of my body even before I was born. Please help me to treat my body with respect as Your beloved creation. I desire to serve You with excellence, so in my weakness, grant me strength and good health so that nothing will prevent Your plan for me live. Please protect me from all contagions and diseases that can riddle the body and bring dangerous results. Please protect me with wisdom to use well the rest You provide as I wait on You with You to spend quiet time with You every day.

My life and health are in Your secure hands, Lord, and my trust and faith are in You. In the name of the best physician Jesus Christs name I pray Amen.

‘May the Lord bless you and protect you.  May the Lord smile on you  and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.’ Numbers 6:22-27 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I Know You See The

The Lord said, “I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt. I have heard them crying out because of their slave drivers, and I am concerned about their suffering. (Exodus 3:7)

Please Jesus YAHWEH Ropheka ( God our healer Jeremiah 30:17 ) I know you see the suffering of Your children. You hear the cries of Your people. You listened to the Israelites in Egypt and saw their pain. Then You had compassion on them and delivered them from bondage. Lord, Sheppard, please hear the pitiful bleating of Your flock.

Please have compassion and concern for Your loved ones who are sick and in pain. Please smash the debilitating chains of suffering that imprison them. We will all sing joyous songs of hallelujah give you the glory for all the earth to hear.

It is Thy merciful name I humbly make this petition. Amen

May you be blessed with Christ gentle healing touch today. Joseph a son of Jehovah

For Reminding Me With

Trust in the Lord completely, and do not rely on your own opinions.
With all your heart rely on him to guide you, and he will lead you in every decision you make. Become intimate with him in whatever you do, and he will lead you wherever you go. Proverbs 3:5-6 The Holy Bible, The Passion Translation

Oh please my Love, forgive me when I am a dumbo because I doubt whether I can accomplish the task You have given me. I know it is not doubting my ability but rather You wisdom in giving this task to me.

On the flip side, please forgive me when I am arrogant and attempt a task You have not blessed me with. These plans always crash and burn. Sometimes my Love, it feels as if You have abandoned me.

Thank You Holy Spirit for reminding me with how You walked with me in the past even when it didn’t feel like it. Thank you for maturing me to always walk in harmony with You all the way to the Heavenly home my cherished Poppa has prepared for me.

I pray this in the name of He who will greet me at Heavens gate with great joy, my adoring big brother, Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day Joseph a son of Jehovah

We Are Not to Be

A good man deals graciously and lends; He will guide his affairs with discretion. Psalms 112:5 The Holy Bible, The New King James Version

Discretion the quality of having or showing discernment or good judgment. Merriam Webster Dictionary

Yes, we are to lend in the appropriate way in the appropriate time. We are not to be suckers.

The first time you bail someone out that is mercy. The second time is abuse. Bailing out the second time prevents them from maturing by taking consequences for thier actions. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“Maturity is not based on age, but on the willingness to accept responsibility.”Dr. Edwin Louis Cole

Now how are we to gain wisdom to make good judgement?

Of course we go to The Answer Man, He knows everything.

And who is this Answer Man?

The wisest of all, Jehovah. He knows everything.

And how do we know His answer for us?

“Faith does not eliminate questions. But faith knows where to take them.” -Elisabeth Elliot

A wise man waits and pray for three days as well as reads his Bible. Jehovah always answers those who have faith in Him, which means to trust Him.

We must also be patient because Jehovah answers in His time, In His way.

I depend upon You, Holy Spirit to help me set Godly boundaries in my relationships. I depend upon You to guide me in the proper use of these skills to nurture loving relationships while purging myself of toxic folks who only bring unnecessary drama and chaos to my life.

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Deah ( God of knowledge. Romans 11:33 ) guide me to share my time, talents, and gifts wherever and whenever You direct me to so as to bring You glory and honour. And, to bring the little lost sheep to You. Please protect me from the abusive wolves who only want to make a sucker out of me. I humbly ask this in the name of He who gave His life for mine, Jesus Christ. Amen .

I love to share the events in my life where Jehovah, Jesus and they Holy Spirit have touched me. How can I not. They were life changing. Joseph a son of Jehovah
