Need Someone to Pray for You? Read to the Last Part…Jesus Prays for Us…

JOHN 17

Prayer for the Son

1These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: 2As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. 3And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. 4I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. 5And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

Prayer for the Disciples

6I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. 7Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee. 8For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. 9I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. 10And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them. 11And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. 12While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.

13And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. 16They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. 18As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 19And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.

Prayer for all Believers

20Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 21That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

22And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: 23I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. 24Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

25O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. 26And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

Don’t even THINK ABOUT missing this one!

“American marines singing “Days of Elijah” (Lirycs)” (NEVER GETS OLD)

This is a few years old and I believe I have posted it here before, BUT, this never fails to stir my soul!   It never fails to encourage me, lift me, give me a renewed hope!  It always moves me to tears and moves me to praise my King of Kings! Hallelujah!

Image result for Life and Depression

Not sure what is wrong.  Seems a little worse than normal.  When I read the picture I posted I think people who have battled depression might actually be able to look back on a time when they were happy.

I read it and I immediately thought that I don’t remember when that might be.  I remember when I was 11 and sitting on my bed in my room alone and thinking there was something wrong with me and I just wanted to sit in there all alone.  I am 52 and I still feel like that most of the time. 

Happy days?  I have had them.  One here, one there.  Days I have spent crying or simply lonely even though people are around are far more easy to remember.

I am happier left to myself.  Is that ok?  It seems like the world tells you that you must be surrounded by others to really be happy.  Then again, why listen to this world?  I cut myself off from this world because I do not feel apart of this horrible and wicked place.  I don’t see a future for myself.  No family around.  Most people my age are wrapped up in grandchildren.  Mine live far away and don’t even know me with the exception of hoping for $$ from that lady who always sends it at my birthday and at Christmas. 

I know…I know….don’t go quoting scripture.  I won’t go and kill myself.  I have hope in Jesus Christ.  If I had no hope then I certainly would not still be here.  I assure you it would be pointless.  I have hope.  I am currently having a really hard time showing that hope right now.  That distresses me even more because I don’t want to disappoint God.  I know this is not His desire for me.  Yet, this world is sick and it sickens me.  It vexes my soul to the core.  Should I not be full of joy of the Lord? 

Sorry guys.

I really don’t even know what to say.

Pray for me please.

Looking Above 

Colossians 3:1-4

If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

Malania’s Prayer

Yesterday I listened to some of the speech of President Trump.  I will say I became emotional before the president even got to the podium.

I listened to the First Lady as she introduced our president.

Let me first say that a few years ago I heard the president of another nation.  I actually have a write up about it.  I was amazed when he prayed FOR THE ENTIRE NATION and for forgiveness of his sin and also the sin of the nation and I was so moved by that.  I remember asking people if they had seen it or heard about it. No, no-one had. It was only by the grace of God I had heard it over a radio station who briefly mentioned it and I could barely make it out.  I had to go in search of it after arriving home that day and WOW was I amazed.  I told everyone that it saddened me because I could never imagine that type of thing being done in the USA as we were way too politically correct.  Plus President Obama spoke more positively about the Koran than he ever did about the bible and yet he claimed to be a Christian.  So yesterday when I heard Malania open with a prayer right out of the KJV, yes I became emotional.  I said to the Lord God….yes, thank You and even if she is simply saying it to win a few people over it doesn’t matter.  God used all sorts of people, both saved and unsaved. I pray she is saved and we get to watch God as He moves and grows her and changes her just as He changed me and continues to do so daily.  

So, I love that she read from that version.  Why you ask?  I used to be a NIV reader.  Honestly it helped me a lot during that growing time in my own personal life but now, knowing some things missing I only use the KJV.  Let’s compare the two.

KJV

Matthew 6:9-13

After this manner therefore pray ye:

Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 13.- And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

NIV

This, then, is how you should pray:

“ ‘Our Father in heaven,

hallowed be your name,

10your kingdom come,

your will be done,

on earth as it is in heaven.

11Give us today our daily bread.

12And forgive us our debts,

as we also have forgiven our debtors.

13And lead us not into temptation,a

but deliver us from the evil one.b ’


So what is different? Look at verse 13 in each version. For me the NIV leaves off a very powerful few words.  Do they matter? I believe that they do.  This isn’t the only place that very significant words are left out.

So, I am thrilled to hear the right prayer spoken out by the First Lady.  Don’t take your eyes off Jesus, our president won’t save America and he cannot save you.  It is nice to hear this coming from our leaders.  It gives the body of Christ freedom to go and share the gospel maybe a little easier.
