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

To My Dear Jesus

Dear Jesus,

Help me to spread Your fragrance wherever I go.
Flood my soul with Your Spirit and life.
Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly,
that my life may only be a radiance of Yours.

Shine through me, and be so in me
that every soul I come in contact with
may feel Your presence in my soul.

Let them look up, and see no longer me, but only Jesus!
Stay with me and then I will begin to shine as You shine,
so to shine as to be a light to others.

The light, O Jesus, will be all from You; none of it will be mine.
It will be You, shining on others through me.
Let me thus praise You in the way which You love best,
by shining on those around me.

Let me preach You without preaching, not by words but by my example,
by the catching force, the sympathetic influence of what I do,
the evident fullness of the love my heart bears to You.
Amen.

—Inspired by John Henry Cardinal Newman’s own prayer, prayed by Mother Teresa daily after holy communion.

May you be blessed with many opportunities to shine the light of Christ’s love to others this day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

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.

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

So Too Will You Become

But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted! John 15:7 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Do you see the two important parts to this verse?

The first part is to remain in Jehovah. That means to have a continuous loving relationship with Him.

If someone only comes to you when they want something and give nothing in return, why would you even look at them much less grant them their desires. They are nothing more than users and abusers.

The same is true of Jehovah.

Why would He grant you your desires if you have no desire to be in a loving relationship with Him?

The second part is obeying His words.

So if the Bible, His words, tells you not to do something, like participate in homosexuality, and you do why would you expect anything from Him.

If the Bible, His word tells you to do something, like forgive someone who has offended you, why should you expect Him to grant your petition to Him?

Now it is okay to ask for personal requests like healing from a physical ailment but keep centered on the spiritual.

As Jehovah is spiritual so too will you become more spiritual than worldly in your daily life and your prayer requests. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah El-Deah ( God of knowledge.Romans 11:33 ) send the best mentor there is, the Holy Spirit to teach me the proper manner in which to conduct myself as a loving obedient child of Yours. I have a deep desire to draw ever closer with You with each and every breath. I humbly beseech You in the name of Your most precious son who was obedient towards You all the way to the horrifying cross, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Prayer: Please Jehovah Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense Psalms 89:18 ) protect me this day from wicked folks and unseen evil spirits as I walk the path You have chosen for me to travel this day.

I humbly request this in the name of Lord of Your holy armies Jesus Christ. Amen

I am Here Today With

Pray with me: “My Beloved Poppa, I am here today with open hands and an open heart, ready to depend on You to help me through this day and all it will bring my way.

Help me be like Nehemiah, help me come to You for guidance, strength, provision and protection.

As I face tough choices and hard situations, help me remember to come unto You my Beloved for guidance and strength to do the right this, help me remember that I am Your child and Your representative to the world around me.

Help me live today in a way that brings honor to Your holy name.

In Jesus’ name I humbly request this, Amen.”

May Jehovahs rays of Divine love shine brightly upon you today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Are Very Arrogant

A righteous man hates lies, But a wicked man is loathsome, and he acts shamefully. Proverbs 13:5 The Holy Bible, The Amplified Version

Have you ever wondered why you hate it when you hear someone tell lies (even if they seem harmless) ?

It is because we imitate that which we love.

So, just as Jehovah hates lies and liars so too do we.

Loathsome is described as causing feelings of loathing; disgusting; revolting; repulsive.

Personally speaking, I find liars and braggarts to be particularly disgusting and repulsive. I have to run from them before I either explode or feel strongly sick to my stomach.

I believe that is exactly how Jehovah feels and a quick reference in your Bible will prove it. When they are a family member, it makes me want to cry seeing them walk the path of ultimate destruction and knowing they are too full of themselves to listen.

Again, I know that, that is exactly how Jehovah feels from reading and understanding the Bible.

Liars are very arrogant and believe they are gods in their own eyes. Many times they look down on others and feel no shame in lying to get what they desire at someones elses expense.

Eventually, Jehovah has enough of them and then allows them to reap what they sow. It is a terrible thing to witness and rips the heart apart even though we know they deserve what they are getting.

Stay away from them, they only bring heartache, pain and disaster. They are truly the devils children.

Hell is full of the arrogant. Heaven is full of the humble. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for sending me The Holy Spirit El Emeth (Psalms 31:5 LORD GOD of Truth ) to teach me Your irrefutable truth. Thank you for opening my eyes to the destructive life of liars and to avoid interacting with them less they entice me to follow their footsteps to Hell. I thank you in the name of He who not only spoke nothing but the truth but lived it as well, Jesus Christ. Amen

May the God of truth protect you from the lying vipers that slither through out this land and guide you to not become one of them.

The Next Time Someone Does

Do not lose your temper it only leads to harm. Psalm 37:8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

The next time someone does or says something that I do not like I instantly stop! Then take a deep breath and pray to the Holy Spirit for wisdom, strength and grace on the proper manner in which to reply ( even if that means keeping my mouth shut ).

This will avoid a lot of hurt and regret by making the right choices at this point. This is the prayer that will be said:

Please Jesus, help me to look beyond what people say and see their heart.

Please forgive me for the times I have responded too quickly and foolishly in anger.

Please teach me to emulate You and be quick to listen, slow to speak and even slower to get angry.

It is in Your wise strong name I humbly, meekly ask this important request. 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
