Prayer, Thought for Today

When you pray to the Lord for thanksgiving--Thanking Him for His blessings--or supplication--Asking for self or interceding for others--pray not to be heard or seen, but pray in humility to be heard by the Lord. Peter said the most sincere and earnest prayer recorded in the Bible--"Save me!" This is the way we should pray--with all sincerity so God hears us when we pray and blesses us with His Grace and Mercy. Father, I pray that all peoples pray to Jesus after their salvation with humility for Jesus is the only way to be heard by the YHWH. While we pray, God is already giving the answer so that the Spirit of Him--indwelling Holy Spirit--is telling us of the answers to our prayer(s). I pray that all whom are not saved come now while you have a chance. Come to have your soul in heaven and not in hell with Satan. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen. - Rev. Lynwood F. Mundy

Sometimes, John would only talk to a person once and they’d make a decision to follow Christ. That’s the way it was with the guy he met while picking up canned apple sauce in Yakima, Washington. John was waiting to be loaded when he saw the big guy out of the corner of his eye. The guy was 6’ 5” if he was an inch. John walked over, and began talking about his family, before you know it, he was talking about his Lord and the big guy was choking up and start…

Amazing Grace : 366 Inspiring Hymn Stories for Daily Devotions

BLEST BE THE TIE THAT BINDS John Fawcett, 1740–1817 Whoever loves his brother lives in the light, and there is nothing in him to make him stumble. (1 John 2:10) “We just cannot break the ties of affection that bind us to you dear friends.” As Mary Fawcett assured the little congregation at Wainsgate, England, of the bond of love that she and her husband felt for their poor peasant parishioners, Pastor John decided to express his feelings in a poem about the value of Christian fellowship.
