Our Heavenly Father, whose Son is thee door to heaven, Holy Spirit lovingly teaching us meaning of your name. I continue to confess, apologize for, rebuke and repent from surfacing sin. May your revival usher in your kingdom according to your will with ours bent to it. May our leaders own up to their power and responsibilities by declaring and enabling your rule, reign and sovereignty. May they be careful and aware of their extreme influence. May we awake and arise to these times of spiritual crisis from which all other curses fester. May we acknowledge Jesus Christ as living water from whom all healing and restoration flows. Forgive us Lord for our distractions, false idols and sin in place of You. We are near rock bottom and have only You to save us. Have mercy on our souls. May You revive us and have us grow, ripe for harvest. Lest we forget the folly and fate of our past. We have You to thank and draw us near in times of desperation. I call upon your terms, cleanse the church to make Christ's body fit for the good Lord's fight, already won, rescue more lost souls. I dare cry "bloody murder" yet truth being told with our Saviour sacrificing himself. All who believe in him live eternally ever after. In Jesus Christ's pure perfect holy name I pray, amen. GregoryB
Proverbs 31 gets a lot of attention on Mothers Day worldwide possibly more than any time of the year. However, we were teaching about virtue today and I decided to present this to others. The majority of the proverb describes a virtuous woman who leads her home with integrity, discipline, and giftedness. This wife and mother in the last proverbs is a leader not because she tries to be one, but because of who she is. A. Her Assets: She is trustworthy (v. 11) She is a positive influence (v. 12) She is a hard worker (v. 13, 14, 19, 24-27) She is a planner (v. 21, 22) She is protective (v. 27) B. Her Achievements She meets the needs of her home (v. 15) She invests for her household (v. 16) She keeps herself in shape (v. 17) She helps her husband become successful. (v. 23) C. Her Attitudes Delightful (v. 13) Healthy (v. 18) Compassionate (v. 20) Unselfish (v. 20) Public (v. 25) D. Her Applause From her family (v. 28) From her husband (v. 28, 29) From God's Word (v. 30) From her works (v. 31) Your thoughts? Anything I missed or you'd like to add/comment on?
