My Prayer for Today

 My Prayer for Today Yahweh, thank You for giving mankind Your Son Jesus at Calvary on the tree [cross] of crucifixion with two (2) malefactors. Jesus took on Himself sin that He could die for sinful mans sins. I pray that all peoples saved could come to Yahweh in prayer and have His Spirit immediately after accepting Jesus The Christ as their Lord and Savior after coming in faith and repentance of their sins. Hallelujah! On this Good Friday I pray for secular people not to waste their time in sin but COME to Jesus for their soul salvation! The Son of Man paid it all for mans sins; salvation is FREE ... so COME WHILE THE BLOOD IS STILL WARM AND RUNNING THROUGH YOUR VEINS. As I close this prayer I want to say, "Thank you God for Jesus showing Your divine love for man/woman! In Jesus name I pray. Amen. - Min. Lynwood F. Mundy

Go To Morning Reading Evening, March 28 “I will accept you with your sweet savour.” — Ezekiel 20:41 The merits of our great Redeemer are as sweet savour to the Most High. Whether we speak of the active or passive righteousness of Christ, there is an equal fragrance. There was a sweet savour in his active life by which he honoured the law of God, and made every precept to glitter like a precious jewel in the pure setting of his own person. Such, too, was his passive obedience, when he endured with unmurmuring submission, hunger and thirst, cold and nakedness, and at length sweat great drops of blood in Gethsemane, gave his back to the smiters, and his cheeks to them that plucked out the hair, and was fastened to the cruel wood, that he might suffer the wrath of God in our behalf. These two things are sweet before the Most High; and for the sake of his doing and his dying, his substitutionary sufferings and his vicarious obedience, the Lord our God accepts us. What a preciousness must there be in him to overcome our want of preciousness! What a sweet savour to put away our ill savour! What a cleansing power in his blood to take away sin such as ours! and what glory in his righteousness to make such unacceptable creatures to be accepted in the Beloved! Mark, believer, how sure and unchanging must be our acceptance, since it is in him! Take care that you never doubt your acceptance in Jesus. You cannot be accepted without Christ; but, when you have received his merit, you cannot be unaccepted. Notwithstanding all your doubts, and fears, and sins, Jehovah’s gracious eye never looks upon you in anger; though he sees sin in you, in yourself, yet when he looks at you through Christ, he sees no sin. You are always accepted in Christ, are always blessed and dear to the Father’s heart. Therefore lift up a song, and as you see the smoking incense of the merit of the Saviour coming up, this evening, before the sapphire throne, let the incense of your praise go up also. Charles H. Spurgeon, Morning and Evening: Daily Readings, Complete and unabridged; New modern edition. (Peabody, MA: Hendrickson Publishers, 2006).

 “Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered.” 
         — Hebrews 5:8

We are told that the Captain of our salvation was made perfect through suffering, therefore we who are sinful, and who are far from being perfect, must not wonder if we are called to pass through suffering too. Shall the head be crowned with thorns, and shall the other members of the body be rocked upon the dainty lap of ease? Must Christ pass through seas of his own blood to win the crown, and are we to walk to heaven dry shod in silver slippers? No, our Master’s experience teaches us that suffering is necessary, and the true-born child of God must not, would not, escape it if he might. But there is one very comforting thought in the fact of Christ’s “being made perfect through suffering”—it is, that he can have complete sympathy with us. “He is not an high priest that cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities.” In this symp…

Prayer and Hope for the Anxious

March 29: Prayer and Hope for the Anxious
Psalm 28:1–9

Anxiety, depression, and fear aren't part of the Christian life—or the ideal Christian life, anyway. But for those who struggle with these emotions, this tidy approach isn’t helpful or true. What is helpful is hope and belief in the midst of tumultuous emotion.
The writer of Psa. 28 expresses deep anxiety, but even as he does this, he expresses trust in Yahweh: “To you, O Yahweh, I call. O my rock, do not be deaf to me. Or else, if you are silent to me, then I will become like those descending to the pit” (Psa. 28:1). Though he feels like God is not listening, the psalmist doesn’t stop pursuing God. He worships and cries for help anyway. In contrast to the “workers of evil” who “do not regard the works of Yahweh, nor the work of his hands,” the psalmist puts all of his dependence and trust in Yahweh (Psa. 28:3, 5).
Halfway through the psalm, the petition turns to praise when Yahweh answers his prayer. The psalmist realizes his …
