Prayer, Thought for Today

Father, as I come before You as humble and submissive as I know, relinquishing all flesh and worldliness, asking You to anoint me from the crown of my head to the souls of my feet that I through You might give Your Word of praise, comfort, health in infirmities, and hope through faith accepting Jesus as their Lord and Savior. I pray that those reading this prayer be shown the Way that they will know that there is only one way to You the Father--that is through Jesus in faith, genuine repenting of sins, and accepting Him as their Lord and Savior; He is the Way, the truth and the life, propitiator and the door to the Father who sits on His heavenly throne in heaven.

He rewrote the record books. One of the records he broke had stood for around 150 years. Can anybody stop Tiger? He is a man with a passion to win. He has the background, the talent and the determination to make it happen. If there were any doubters left in the crowd, his final putt on the 18th at Pebble silenced them forever. One sign in the gallery said it all, “Thanks Jack, long live Tiger.” When Jack Nicklaus did…

Amazing Grace : 366 Inspiring Hymn Stories for Daily Devotions

February 17 JESUS LOVES EVEN ME Words and Music by Philip P. Bliss, 1838–1876 As the Father has loved Me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. (John 15:9) The wonder of Jesus’ deep love for each of us has been expressed in this text in beautiful but childlike language by the noted musician of early gospel music, Philip P. Bliss. After attending a service where the hymn “O How I Love Jesus” was sung repeatedly, Bliss thought, “Have I not been singing enough about my poor love for Jesus and shall I not rather sing of His great love for me?” Soon he completed both the words and music of one of the all-time favorite children’s hymn, which is widely sung and enjoyed by adults as well. Philip Bliss was the dynamic and very talented song writer and associate of evangelists D. L. Moody and Major Daniel W. Whittle. Bliss’ commanding height and impressive personality made his singing and song leading outstanding features in any evangelistic service. His gift for writing gospel hymns w…
