My Prayer for Today

Prayer Min. Lynwood F. Mundy 
Tis the season to be merry, jolly and grateful for Jesus in spirit and worship; However, all seems lost because of corporate greed and man's wanting presents, railings and money. Where has the true Christmas spirit gone? Churches have removed the true spirit of worshiping Christ to a de-facto worship service with giving of Lavish gifts to Preacher's and their wives or husbands and having elaborate dinners in hotels or banquet Halls. Christ's man-made birthday has actually removed Him for , Xmas festivities for which it was intended. I pray YHWH, that Christians remember John 3:16, and the prophesy of Isaiah 9:6, 7. Nowhere does the Scripture say, 'man. is supposed to be worshiped or given gifts.' I pray that Christian's "Remember the reason for the Season-JESUS." In Jesus' name I pray. Amen. Hallelujah!

Yahweh had requested that the Rechabites shun alcohol and live in tents, so they did. They obeyed this request until Nebuchadnezzar invaded Judah, which they inhabited with the rest of God’s people. Then Yahweh sent them one final test: He asked His prophet, Jeremiah, to prompt them to drink wine. They resisted—and passed the test (Jer 35:1–11).

The Rechabites’ obedience stands as a model that shows the actions of the…
