My Prayer for Today

My Prayer for Today Lord, thank You for the marvelous and amazing things that You do in my and others lives that know You through Your Son Jesus in the pardoning of our sins. Myself and others can't thank You enough through prayer, praise nor Bible study devotions. I pray for those that do not know You--they are missing out on knowing You through YourSon Jesus for their soul eternal salvation. What a joy it is too know You, Jesus and the indwelling Spirit of God! Hallelujah! I pray too those that do not know You through faith, genuine repentance of sins, accepting Jesus as their Lord and Savior, and then, and only then, immediately Your Spirit will indwell in the believer; then they can commune with You and You will answer their prayers. I say, "COME" and enjoy the promises and fruits of God's grace and mercy. In Jesus name I pray. Amen. - Min. Lynwood F. Mundy

 “My beloved.” 
         — Song of Solomon 2:8

This was a golden name which the ancient Church in her most joyous moments was wont to give to the Anointed of the Lord. When the time of the singing of birds was come, and the voice of the turtle was heard in her land, her love-note was sweeter than either, as she sang, “My beloved is mine and I am his: he feedeth among the lilies.” Ever in her song of songs doth she call him by that delightful name, “My beloved!” Even in the long winter, when idolatry had withered the garden of the Lord, her prophets found space to lay aside the burden of the Lord for a little season, and to say, as Esaias did, “Now will I sing to my well-beloved a song of my beloved touching his vineyard.” Though the saints had never seen his face, though as yet he was not made flesh, nor had dwelt among us, nor had man beheld his glory, yet he was the consolation of Israel, the hope and joy of all the chosen, the “beloved” o…

We Don’t (Really) Mean It

March 20: We Don’t (Really) Mean It
Psalm 20:1–9

“I’ll pray for you.”
We say it often, but how many times do we actually remember to do it? Our biggest downfall might not be a lack of compassion—it’s probably just not taking time to write down the request and not having a model of praying for others.
Some of us might feel like we've mastered the art of the task list, but it can still be difficult to keep up with praying for our friends. It’s easy to think, “God knows their needs, so it’s fine.” But that’s not the New Testament view of prayer: we’re meant to pray always (Luke 18:1; 1 Thess. 5:16). And Paul himself regularly asks for prayers. If they weren't important, he wouldn't ask (Col. 4:3). For this reason, it would be helpful to develop a system to track what people need prayer for, like a prayer journal. But what about the model?
When I pray for God’s will in my life, I've found that using the Lord’s Prayer works well when I’m having trouble praying. But I haven’t…
