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.

Be Thankful

In every situation [no matter what the circumstances] be thankful and continually give thanks to God; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.1 Thessalonians 5:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I desired to make raised flower beds for my aged mother who can no longer bend over to work in her flower beds and she loves her flower beds and working in them. I wanted ten skids and my friend suggested he could get a truck and we could pick them up the next day, but because the truck he wanted to borrow was not available he phoned and informed me we could only get three.

There was disappointment and anger in my heart because we agreed upon ten.

After talking with Jehovah became I became grateful for what was given and for my friends help and waited for him to come pick me up the next day to get the skids.

The friend showed up with five skids in the back of his SUV the next afternoon. When we went to the place where the skids were supposed to be they were all gone. He drove to the place where he saw the skids on the side of the road during his morning walk and we got five more.

Because of that the raised garden could be made ( even though it was not as big as I wanted. I wanted to build a pyramid raised garden but the skids were too small).

As well there was enough skids to use as the base to make another bigger raised garden using a discarded dresser drawer. Another blessing was Jehovah giving me an idea on how to make more raised gardens as a border for our flower beds using materials around the house that I never thought of.

As a consequence there was not a need for so many skids.

When we desire something but Jehovah does not give us what we want but are to still be appreciative. Then Jehovah multiplies His blessings upon us.

A faithful (right-minded) man will abound with blessings. Proverbs 28:20 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for providing for me the material necessary to build a monument of love towards Your cherished daughter, my mother and for the brother who graciously helped me. I thank You in the name of He who was grateful for the blessings of the disciples You sent unto Him 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.

A Memorial Offering Before God

 And the angel said to him, “Your prayers and gifts of charity have ascended as a memorial offering before God [an offering made in remembrance of His past blessings]. “Acts 10:4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

A memorial is something that keeps remembrance alive.

Many of us at time become discouraged when our gifts of charity are abused and the recipients are very ungrateful. When you become discouraged by this arrogant selfish behaviour and wonder if it has any meaning remember that even though it is not appreciated by the recipients it is cherished by Jehovah.

Your prayers and charity may be unnoticed by man but is the sweetest offering of love to Jehovah. Joseph son of Jehovah

When it seems as if those you are praying for fight both you and Jehovah to access the fulfillment of the blessing of the prayer and you wonder if it is an exercise in futility remember that it is a sweet cherished gift unto Jehovah. This is especially true when done as a gift of appreciation unto Jehovah for past blessings He has bestowed unto you.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kabodhi ( The Lord my Glory ) for blessing me with the assurance that my prayers and gifts unto You by serving others will be rewarded with glory in Your Heavenly home. I praise You in the name of my Heavenly King who will place the crown upon my head upon entry into Your Heavenly home Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

At All Times Through Him

 

At all times through Him, therefore, let us at all times offer up to God a sacrifice of praise, which is the fruit of lips that thankfully acknowledge and confess and glorify His name. Hebrews 13:15 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

That can be a difficult one can’t it?

You are going through a divorce or death of a loved one. How can you give thanks in that circumstance?

Give thanks that through Jesus He will guide you, heal you, comfort you, encourage you and strengthen you. The world does not have this blessing.

The same can be said in every situation in life.

I thank my Beloved best Friend Jesus Christ for walking with me through my many trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares. I never would have made it without Him.

Whenever theses events are shared with another they are glorifying His awesome name.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with walking with me through the firestorms in my life encouraging me, strengthening me, comforting me and healing me. I extol Thee in the name of He who calmed the raging storms for His disciples 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.
