Hello! I may only have a handful of watchers, but I rejoice in getting to write this for you all to read. May the Lord use this according to His good and perfect will.
For the past couple of months, I have been coming to the LORD in prayer with more energy than ever (the energy is fueled by His grace). I have lifted up my petitions to Him -- my worries and distresses, along with my praises and offerings of thanks -- and He has heard me.
What a simple and obvious concept; OF COURSE He has heard me. There is never a time when He does not hear me.
I believe that what I am trying to say is this: Please come to the LORD, humbly, and bring you petitions to Him. He is faithful, and He is your Father -- and fathers always sustain their children. Every distress, worry, anxiety, fear -- along with every praise and offering of thanks -- bring them to Him. Bow before Him; fall to your knees before Him and pray.
I am just now beginning to experience the true and real power of sincere prayer. I, myself, am weak; my words are feeble. But He is faithful, and He answers my prayers according to His perfect timing and will. We need only fall to our knees before Him, on a daily basis, in humility and in faith, for Him to answer us faithfully.
Praise be to the King of the universe -- the Creator of all things. May all of His saints forever and ever praise His name! Amen.
- Ephesians 6:18: "And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints."
- Phillipians 4:6: "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
If you are reading this and are unsure about your salvation in Christ, and if you would like to learn more of the salvation and hope that the children of God have in Him, PLEASE bring to me or any other follower of Christ your questions or concerns, and we will be more than happy to lead you towards the Lord. Then you may "taste and see that the Lord is good" (Psalm 34:8).
I pray that the Lord will draw you all nearer and nearer to Him, my fellow saints, so that you may experience fulfillment in Him, and so that His good and perfect will may be done in you. May the grace and peace of God our Father and Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.
If anybody else here requires prayer, please comment, and I will be honored to come to the Lord on your behalf! (Though you, of course, must be praying continually also.)
A good day to you all, and PRAISE THE LORD!
