My Prayer for Today

My Prayer for Today Yahweh, I praise You for whom You are: The God that is omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscience. Mans gods do not have Your characteristics because You said that You are I AM WHO I AM meaning in the Hebrew tongue: before there was anything, You were. Not only are You the God of the Hebrews, but the God of Christian's. So, why would anyone want to serve a god of man when the God Yahweh of creation of everything should be served? I pray that those whom are secular come to Jesus and get the Spirit of God to indwell in them and talk with them in leading them to righteous paths in their lives. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen. - Min. Lynwood F. Mundy

As the cup-bearer to the king, Nehemiah recognized his unique place of influence and acted upon it (Neh 2:1–3). He chose to appear saddened before the most powerful man in the world by hanging his head. His actions could have been perceived as a sign of disrespect, which was punishable by seve…
