My Prayer for Today

My Prayer for Today Heavenly Father, I pray for the people of the Boston Marathon tragedy. Bless those that were injured, some losing limbs, hearing or concussion. I pray that those people under Your guidance be restored to normalcy by placing their lives in faith through Jesus and overcome their disabilities as I have. Thank You Lord and Savior Jesus! Hallelujah! Bless the families of those that lost their lives in those nonsense bombings. Father, I even pray for those or the one responsible for the bombings; I pray that they will ask for forgiveness of what they have done through faith in You through Your Son Jesus knowing that You will forgive them if they did not know You before the bombings. I pray that the one(s) will COME TO JESUS for genuine remission of their sins, and accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior, then, immediately the Spirit of God will indwell in their souls; they will be saved in Jesus' name. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

The question is not whether you have come to a knowledge of doctrine, or an observance of ceremonies, or to a certain form of experience, but have you come to the blood of Jesus? The blood of Jesus is the life of all vital godliness. If you have truly come to Jesus, we know how you came—the Holy Spirit sweetly brought you there. You came to the blood of sprinkling with no merits of your own. Guilty, lost, and helpless, you came to take that blood, and that blood alone, as your everlasting hope. You came to the cross of Christ, with a trembling and an aching heart; and oh! what a precious sound it was to you to hear the voice of the blood of Jesus! The dropping of his blood is as the music of heaven to the penitent sons of earth. We are full of sin, but the Saviour bids us lift our…

It’s Actually Quite Simple

April 17: It’s Actually Quite Simple
Deuteronomy 31:30–32:52; 2 Corinthians 8:8–15

“May my teaching trickle like the dew, my words like rain showers on tender grass … For I will proclaim the name of Yahweh; ascribe greatness to our God! The Rock, his work is perfect, for all his ways are just; he is a faithful God, and without injustice; righteous and upright is he” (Deut 32:2–4).
We all teach in some way. Some of us teach at church, others teach co-workers or employees. Some teach the children in their household, and others teach simply by doing (although we don’t always acknowledge these roles). If all of us lived by Moses’ prayer, things would be quite different. Imagine a world where we proclaimed Yahweh’s greatness in all we say and do.
Moses’ words also teach us something about God. If we’re looking for perfection in what we do, we should look to the one who actually manifests it. If we’re looking to be faithful, we should rely on the one who is faithful in all He does. If it’s r…
