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

If You Want to Know

look for me

Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you for so long a time, and you do not know Me yet, Philip, nor recognize clearly who I am? Anyone who has seen Me has seen the Father. John 14:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

If you truly want to know what Jehovah is like just read about Jesus in the New Testament in your Bible. The two are of the same disposition.

If you want to know who the best guidance Councillor is just look at Jesus. He has gone through every thing, and so much more, that we have. Therefore, He understands everything we go through and is best qualified to give the best advice (Jesus is too much of a gentleman to demand anything, He always suggests what is best for us, it is in our best interest to be obedient unto that advice.).

Who would you rather go to with a problem: someone with a certificate on the wall but has not walked one step through what you are experiencing.

Or: Someone who has walked a mile or more in your shoes so understands completely what you are going through and has unlimited resources to help you resolve the problem.

“If you want to know who God is, look at Jesus.  If you want to know what it means to be human, look at Jesus.  If you want to know what love is, look at Jesus.  If you want to know what grief is, look at Jesus.  And keep looking until you’re no longer a spectator but part of His grand story.” N. T. Wright

Prayer: Thank you GELAH RAZ (Revealer of Mysteries) for revealing the mystery of You to this humble child of Yours that is blind to the foolish ones that are walking towards Hell. Please bless me with the ability to reveal You with others as You have revealed towards me. I humbly request this in the name of He who opened the eyes of the blind 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.

Those Who Represent The.

HEAVENLY STRENGTH

 Listen carefully: I have given you authority [that you now possess] to tread on serpents and scorpions, and [the ability to exercise authority] over all the power of the enemy (Satan); and nothing will [in any way] harm you. Luke 10:19,20   Holy Bible Amplified Version               

I do not believe Christ is referring to the creature but to those who represent the creatures.

So for example, the serpent represents satan while the scorpions represent those whose tongues and hands represent wicked ones out to do you harm.

The harm mentioned is not referring to physical harm but rather spiritual harm. They are out to poison your relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

The wicked ones are out to kill your love for them.

The authority is given by Christ in His name and the power comes through the Holy Spirit.

Because Jesus is the Supreme Power satan and his minions do not have the power to harm us (they can tempt us but never physically, mentally, nor spiritually harm us).

They are constantly around us which is why it is so important to stay close to Christ.

If we stray away from Jesus we are easy pickings for satan and his henchmen. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for blessing this dedicated servant of Your with the necessary tools to defend myself successfully against the serpents and scorpions that come my way through the day. I glorify You in Your majestic name. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day.

 It Was Not Easy for Him.

he leads us

“Have you thought about His (God) handling of the gospel? God needs to get a message out to the human race, without which they will perish…forever. What’s the plan? First, He starts with the most unlikely group ever: a couple of prostitutes, a few fishermen with no better than a second-grade education, a tax collector. Then, he passes the ball to us. Unbelievable.” — John Eldredge        

Me, I was a shy, timid, sick boy.                                            

Through the course of forty years Jehovah has taken me all over my country Canada and helped me bring the lost to Him. He took me to the forest in the mountains and on the prairies tree planting in extremely difficult and dangerous situations                                                                         

He was with me through a long dangerous, and many times painful four thousand bicycle journey from western coastal Canada, through the western coastal United States and down through Mexico to be a medical missionary. He did this three winters in a row.    

He then took me all over China in the course of ten years.                                         

Now He has brought me home after forty years to be a live in care giver for my mother, which ain’t easy.                                                                                    

It was not easy for Him.                                                                                

There was little self confidence, which is good.                                                    

There was little confidence in Him, which was good because little by little He drew me ever closer to Him.                                                                                  

So, do not believe the devils lies that you are not educated enough, you are not a good speaker, you are shy,you are, you are, the list goes on and on.                         

When Jehovah calls you into service, and He will, have faith in Him and His abilities not your own. Watch the amazing things He will do in you and through you.                              

Then I will give to the peoples [clear and pure speech from] purified lips [which reflect their purified hearts], That all of them may call on the name of the Lord, To serve Him shoulder to shoulder (united).Zephaniah 3:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for taking a misfit like me and molding me into a servant of Your and for all the amazing work You have accomplished in me and through me. I exalt Your awesome name. Amen.

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.

On My Own.

SPIRITUAL STRENGTH

No temptation [regardless of its source] has overtaken or enticed you that is not common to human experience [nor is any temptation unusual or beyond human resistance]; but God is faithful [to His word—He is compassionate and trustworthy], and He will not let you be tempted beyond your ability [to resist], but along with the temptation He [has in the past and is now and] will [always] provide the way out as well, so that you will be able to endure it [without yielding, and will overcome temptation with joy].1 Corinthians 10:13 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Some times when we are faced with temptation Jehovah knows we have the power with in our selves to resist it.

Today was just such a day.

It has been two week since permanently butting out.

Today there was a strong temptation to go out and purchase a pack of cigarettes.

I called out to the Lord to deliver me but His reply was that He knew I had the power to resist so just do it.

It felt like my head was going to explode but I firmly determined that I refuse to go back. I feel great since butting out and refuse to return to it just to start the battle all over again.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Izoa Hakaboth (The Lord is Strong) for blessing me with Your encouragement that some of Your unlimited strength resides with in me. This was used this day to good affect.

I praise You in the name of He who slam dunks satan to the ground every time Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with Jehovahs unlimited power today

We Need to Be.

CHRISTIAN DEVOTION

 

 But you will receive power and ability when the Holy Spirit comes upon you; and you will be My witnesses [to tell people about Me] both in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and Samaria, and even to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

In a courtroom a witness is someone who has seen or hear and event.

The greatest tool Jehovah has blessed us with to bring others unto Him is we ourselves. We are to be a witness for Him. Folks will listen much more aptly to your testimony of what Jesus has done in your life and through your life than when you shove a Bible in their face.

As well, when you emulate Christ in your life, you will stand out from the crowd. Curious souls will come and inquire why you are different. Then, you will be a witness for Christ.

Let the light of the Holy Spirit shine brightly in your spirit so as to be a beacon to a dark world. Many so called Christians try to convert unbelievers to their denomination more so than they do to explain who Christ is and why He is the only one to be worshipped.

As Christians we need not be Bible thumpers, we need to be Christs witnesses. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you for the wonderful honour of being intimate friends with me Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend). May I always emulate You, my best friend, so as to guide others to the most treasured of friend. In Your beautiful name I Amen.

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

The Difference is That.

                                                         

The heartfelt and persistent prayer of a righteous man (believer) can accomplish much [when put into action and made effective by God—it is dynamic and can have tremendous power]. James 5:16 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The Lord listens to us as every loving Father listens to his children.

The difference is that Jehovahs power and resources are unlimited as is his wisdom.

Earthly loving fathers are limited in what they can do for their children and with their children.

An important part in trusting that your prayers are answered is to make sure that you are a righteous man or woman of Jehovahs family.

To be righteous means that we are to be living in accord with divine or moral law.

If we are unrighteous we have no right to expect anything from Jehovah because we do not deserve anything from Him.

Just as you are ignoring Jehovahs call to be righteous so too does He ignore your prayer. Joseph a son of Jehovah

So, before you ask anything from Jehovah it is important that you ask Him to teach you how to live a righteous life and to help you in that process (yes you will need help because the task is too great to accomplish on your own). Then you will also understand the type of prayers that are most pleasing unto Him.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) bestow upon me the ability to live a righteous life so as to be a delightful child of Yours and teach me in how to pray prayers that are delightful to Your ears. Then the end result of this will be powerful and effective prayers that can be prayed to assist others. I genuinely request this in the name of the greatest Rabbi who taught His disciples to pray prayers that are pleasing unto You 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
