My Prayer for the Day

Prayer Rev. Lynwood F. Mundy
Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank You for Your grace and mercy to another day.  I pray for the sick, healthy, feeble in mind and body, the paralytic, cancer, the insane and criminal insane minds, the deaf and mute, blind, and those in countries that deny their personal freedom and any thing that I may have unintentionally omitted. Bless this day that those that are reading this prayer will not suffer from unknown and unseen harm or death to them or their family, friends or enemies. Bless those that are secular, atheist, cultist, idolatress and cosmosworshipers that some Christian person will evangelize Your Word--by vocalizing or tracts--to them that their hearts will be pricked, and they will come through a repentance to Jesus in the pardoning of their sins. Then immediately will Your Spirit come and indwell in them, andthe person will become heir and sons and daughters in Your heavenly kingdom and saved from Hades (Sheol, Hell). In Jesus' name. Amen.
