Prayer and Song




Out of the blue, I was driven to my knees just few minutes ago and as I pray, I wanted to praise the Lord with a song and He always graciously gives me when I ask. May you be comforted with this song and prayer.


Anyone here having troubles leaving comments on some sites? I did last night as I tried to post a comment on sis Alleluiabelle’s latest post. So, please know that I visit you guys and if I am not able to leave comments, may you just remember that you are in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you all.
 
 
Lord, with tears I cry out to You. Please forgive me for all of my sins. I’m sorry that I hurt You still. Lord, have Your mercy on me. Save me. Help me and all my loved ones [and my blogging brothers and sisters] facing spiritual battles at this moment. Send comfort Oh Lord to hurting hearts, healing to the sick, salvation for the lost. Where there is a fierce warfare, help us with Your mighty angels. Protect us Oh Lord and be our Shield! May every drop of tears that fall purged out what I don’t need in my life. Let them wash away the things that are not pleasing You Lord.

Fill me with Your Holy Spirit Lord and help me live in the ways that are pleasing to You. Do a heart surgery on me Lord and help me to live in Your holiness. I want to be like Jesus. Help us to be strong with our commitments to You.

Thank You Lord for all that You’ve done. Thank You for Who You are. Thank You for Your faithful and eternal love that completes us when we receive them.

Lord, today hurts as we remember the lost innocent lives 8 years ago. Please comfort those loved ones who were left behind with the sudden death that came to their father, mother, brother, sister, cousin, nephew, niece, friend, husband, wife, grandfather, grandmother, grandchild. Let this painful memory drive us all to go to You, not away from You. Protect us Lord from our enemies.

I love You Lord. And I thank You for loving me first. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.


Here’s the song I’m still composing as I typed:


Be Still [Know That I Am GOD]-Psalm 46:10


I close my eyes in this silence

I want to feel Your love

Your soft whisper blown to my ears

That I’m accepted and loved


Je….sus………Je…sus….
Je…sus……….Je…sus…..
You are……You are…..my God


I wanna’ be still in this place

Filled with Your love and grace

There is no other place I’d rather be

But for my heart to see Your face
 

Je…sus…….Je…sus…..
Je…sus…….Je…sus…..
You are….You are…my God

The Attacker (5/15/09)

The sun was just peeking from the Eastern skies. Ephesians 6:12 [37 kb]


Out in the prison’s yard, some huge Sheriff’s buses were illuminated by the soft glow coming from the lights all over from the tall lamp posts. Their engines were turned on, warming up, before the buses would take the inmates to the different courts where they would have their trials.


Orange-uniformed men were lined up in pairs, joined together with handcuffs and chained, forming a long line. They already had their breakfast and had their morning medications prior to going to courts. Some were fidgeting, as they waited to board those buses.


All of a sudden, all hell broke loose! Two men were engaged in a fight, using weapons they made secretly for a while. Deputies called for help on the radio, both for custody back-up and medical staff, as well.


When the air was cleared and the other inmates were secured, one man was down on the floor. He sustained multiple gashes but two of them were deep. One cut was vertically etched from his left ear going down to the jaw line. The other dangerous cut was horizontal on his left neck, close to the jugular vein. Pool of blood dripped all over the floor. Holding his bleeding neck, he was pointing at the other inmate few feet away, being guarded by the other deputies.


The other man being accused was not hurt. There were no lacerations nor any other signs of trauma. He was obviously very agitated as he was being questioned by those deputies, while the medical staff started treating the other man on the floor. They cleaned the wounds and controlled the bleeding. That man was sent to the nearby hospital.


When the investigation was finalized, it turned out to be that the “downed man who was accusing the other inmate” was the attacker and the other one who didn’t have injury was the one attacked. The deputies found out that it was the second attempt to attack the unhurt man. Both attacks on him failed. He was well-prepared after the first attempt on him, that when the second attempt was done, he was able to defend himseld and ended up injuring his attacker severely.


[Source: Life Application Bible]:


We also have an “accuser of the brethren.” Satan and his army of demons are the enemies of God and of everything good.


“Because God’s children are human beings – made of flesh and blood – Jesus also became flesh and blood by being born in human form. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the Devil, who had the power of death.” –Hebrews 2:14


Because of what Jesus had done [dying on the cross], we, who live in constant fear of death shouldn’t be afraid anymore. Jesus had freed us from that fear so we can live for Him. When we belong to God, we know that death is only the portal that leads into “eternal life”. [“Thank You Lord!].


Paul warned us, too that we also battle against the evil forces of Satan, who is a vicious fighter. But to be able to withstand their attacks, we must depend on God’s strength and use every piece of His armor. We face an army whose goal is to defeat Christ’s church. When we believe in Christ, they become our enemies. They will try any device to turn us away from the Lord.


Fear not! For God has provided His supernatural power to defeat Satan and his army, through His Holy Spirit within us. So, arm yourselves with God’s armor.


Let us be strong in the Lord's mighty power. Let's put on His whole armor to resist the enemy's attacks: put on the sturdy belt of truth and the body armor of God's righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News, so that we are well-prepared. We will need faith in every battle as our shield to stop the fiery arrows aimed by Satan and his army. Let us put on salvation as our helmet, not forgetting the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. Let's pray at all times, on every occasion in the power of the Holy Spirit. We must stay alert and be persistent in our prayers for all Christians everywhere. [Ephesians 6:10-18].
