The First and Most Important Part

But as for us, we will bless and affectionately and gratefully praise the Lord From this time forth and forever. Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!).Psalm 115:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

In my morning prayers the first and most important part of it is saying thank you to my Beloved Father, King and Holy Teacher (the Holy Spirit).

You may not feel like being thankful because you are experiencing hard times but you should be grateful for them because it is in the hard times that we grow closer to Jehovah and we grow the most in our maturity.

All throughout the day prayers of gratitude are offered for the numerous blessings both big and small that Jehovah showers upon me.

At the end of the day the first part of the prayer is saying thank you for all the blessings He has generously blessed me with through out the day.

The end result of this is a deeper loving relationship with my Beloved and a greater gratitude for His loving disposition towards me. That creates a more loving, grateful and cheerful heart in my daily life.

The most important part of prayer is that of gratitude. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“God is good, he cares, forgives, loves us at all times. Surely we must always thank him for what he does.” — Nancy Irene

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for Your amazing abundant love that nourishes my spirit every day. I exalt You in the name of my Heavenly King who preformed the most amazing act of love for me on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

Notice it Says Continually.

 

Seek the Lord and His strength; Seek His face continually [longing to be in His presence]. 1 Chronicles 16:11 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Notice it says continually.

Have you ever seen a chicken after its head has been chopped off ( those who grew up on a farm fifty years ago know what I am referring to, sorry if it offends you city slickers) ? The chickens body flows and runs all around the place for a minute or two.

How many of us do this when unexpected problems or catastrophes slam into us?

I know in my early walk with Christ this occurred many times at the slightest incident. Now when the event first occurs there is the initial shock and worry but I do as the Holy Spirit has trained me to do over many decades: I take it to the Lord in prayer and trust His providence to see me through, that is what faith is. This only becomes second nature because of continuous daily communion with Him.

He Divinely guides most of my every moves. I say most because there are moments in all of our lives where we surrender to selfish fleshly desires.

He always provides me with strength to accomplish the daily tasks He assigns us and yes He does assign us daily tasks as every King does his servants.

Just as Christ is our Heavenly King, so too are we His earthly servants. Joseph son of Jehovah.

The more we experience this the stronger our trust in Him to provide for and protect us in our disasters.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me continuously with Your wonderful presence every moment of my life. I cherish our communion together. Thank you for walking with me through the many trials and tribulations experienced in my walk with You and for walking with me through my crucifixion, being put through the furnace to burn off the dross. I know these event were necessary and that they would have been impossible to accomplish if You were not there with me. I exalt You in the name of He who blessed all He spent time with as He walked amongst us Jesus CHRIST. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

Why Would We Be?

Even so, consider yourselves to be dead to sin [and your relationship to it broken], but alive to God [in unbroken fellowship with Him] in Christ Jesus. Romans 6:10-12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We would we be?

Why would we be in deeper companionship with Christ the more we meditate upon the cross?

Here is what I do every morning: in the part of the morning prayer where I give thanks unto Jesus I take a swallow of red wine vinegar after thanking Christ for shedding His Holy blood, suffering and dying for my filthy sins. When the vinegar goes down it burn the throat, as this happens I think of my Beloved screaming :” My god, my God why have You deserted me.” and think of the time when I left Jehovah and contemplate how painful it was. Just think of how it felt for Christ how enjoyed deep love with His Heavenly Father to have deserted Him in His time of suffering.

Then the wine burns my stomach ( because it is empty in the morning) and reflect of the Roman soldier piercing my Beloveds side. Finally there is a warmth that envelopes my entire heart. I reflect upon the piercing agony Jehovah must have felt watching this horrendous event take place.

After that I eat a sweet cookie and reflect on the sweetness of communion with my Heavenly Beloved.

The more we meditate upon what Jesus suffered on that cross the more we appreciate, respect, love and adore Him.

Because of this I am blessed with unbroken fellowship with my Heavenly Beloved every moment of every day.

“The more we meditate on the cross, the deeper our companionship and knowledge gets of Christ the Lord.”  Pishoy Kamel

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Hoshe’ah ( The Lord Saves ) for Your amazing sacrifice that has enabled me to receive forgiveness for my filthy sins and therefore the privilege of becoming a member of Your Divine family. I praise You in Your magnificent name. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

Be Unceasing and Persistent.

 Be unceasing and persistent in prayer. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have faithfully prayed for a certain woman to come to Christ daily for over twenty years. Through all this time she persistently rejected all attempt’s to listen to anyone about Christ.

Within the last year she began going to a Bible study and now attends a church down the street on Sundays and once during the week. She still attends the first church one a week. She has even invited many of her friends to join her, most of which accept and have become members of that church. She reads daily devotionals and prays every day. Her disposition has metamorphosed so much many people do not even know her anymore.

That is the reward for persistent prayer. Of course not all of our prayers will be answered.

There are men and women that become very angry and even hate me for praying for them. They choose to remain walking in darkness. That is their choice.

Jehovah always gives everyone a choice. Choose wisely. Joseph son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) with Your Divine strength to continue on in prayer even when there does not appear to be any results. I thank You in the name of He who never ceased praying as He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

We are in this Together.

 

 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

We are in this together.

We need to pray for each other more than we need to lend a helping hand.

The reason for this is that through our prayers we bring into play Jehovahs power at our request.

After all, what loving father would not oblige an obedient, respectful loving childs request if the child asks trusting that the request will be answered in the positive.

Through my prayers amazing things blessings have occurred for others that are impossible to answer using human logic. This of course of the perfect timing to share the gospel with others and bring them into Jehovahs awesome family.

Praying for others is a true act of love towards them. Joseph son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for always providing for the receptive ones I pray for. I exalt You in the name of He who is the answer to all of our prayers Jesus Christ. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

A Source of Great Gain

But godliness actually is a source of great gain when accompanied by contentment [that contentment which comes from a sense of inner confidence based on the sufficiency of God]. 1 Timothy 6:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Living a simple Godly life is the key to contentment. Joseph son of Jehovah

My life is very simple and there is great contentment.

I find the greatest delight in the simple beauty that Jehovah surrounds us with each and every day like listening to Jehovahs symphony of wild birds or the wind dancing through the leaves. I love to watch Jehovahs ballet of snowflakes gently swirling and twirling to the ground like tiny ballerinas. I love to drink in the sweetest fragrance there is, wildflowers in the early morning. What a wonderful blessing exceedingly blesses us with daily.

It is too bad most people are in too much of a rush serving their dead gods ( going to work to pay for the things you have gone in debt for which cannot love you back and which you soon become bored with).

“I am content; that is a blessing greater than riches; and he whom that is given need ask no more.” -Henry Fielding

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for blessing me with the amazing treasures You reveal to me in Your stunning creation. Thank you that at those times we walk together and talk together in wonderful loving communion. I praise You in the name of He with whom I cherish looking forward to walking through Heaven with Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

This Causes Much Rejoicing.

 

Yes, if a man should live many years, let him rejoice in them all Ecclesiastes 11:8 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Being in my elder years causes me to rejoice in reflection of the amazing walk Jehovah has blessed me with with Him all these decades. Now as well there is rejoicing in being able to share these experiences with the younger generation.

Oh, there is the aches and pains and limitations that come with age. But during those aches and pains there is deep communion with Jehovah. Indeed these cause me to enjoy deeper communion with my Beloved than at any other time in my life. This causes much rejoicing.

The suffering come close to Christ and He comes close to them. Joseph son of Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand (God is my friend) for Your friendship and companionship throughout my life and now in my elder years. Thank you for blessing me with Your endearing love. I praise You in the name of my Loving best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
