"Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from a religious conviction"
"Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.
In that day you will no longer ask me anything. I tell you the truth, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you
will receive, and your joy will be complete."
Do you know for sure that you are going to be with God in heaven?
If God were to ask you, "Why should I let you into Heaven.." What would you say?
You may have already seen this prayer, but it may be worth reading and sharing again.
When minister Joe Wright was asked to open the new session of the Kansas Senate a short time ago, everyone was expecting the usual politically-correct generalities. Instead, what they heard was a stirring prayer, passionately calling our country to repentance and righteousness.
The response was immediate. A number of legislators walked out during the prayer in protest. In six short weeks, the Central Christian Church had logged more than 5,000 phone calls with only 47 of those calls responding negatively. Churches from India, Africa and Korea are now requesting copies of the prayer. Commentator Paul Harvey aired the prayer on The Rest of the Story and received a larger response to this program than any other time.
Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask Your forgiveness and to seek Your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, "Woe unto those who call evil good," but that's exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values.
We confess that:
We have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word and called it pluralism.
We have worshiped other gods and called it multi-culturalism.
We have endorsed perversion and called it an alternative lifestyle.
We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.
We have neglected the needy and called it self-preservation.
We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.
We have killed our unborn children and called it a choice.
We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable.
We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self-esteem
We have abused power and called it political savvy.
We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition.
We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression.
We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.
Search us, O God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free. Guide and bless these men and women who have been sent to direct us to the center of Your will. I ask it in the name of Your Son, the living Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
What awesome insight !!! With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep our nation and wholeheartedly become our desire so that we again can be called a Christian nation that fears the Lord!
If I could, I'd write for You a rainbow..
And splash it with all the colors of God
And hang it in the window of your being
So that each new God's morning
Your eyes would open first to Hope and Promise
If i could, I'd wipe away your tears
And hold You close forever in shalom
But God never promised I could write a rainbow
Never promised I could suffer for You
Only promised I could love You....
That I do....
I love you,
Not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you.
I love you,
Not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me.
I love you
For the part of me that you bring out;
I love you
For putting your hand into my heaped-up heart and passing over
All the foolish, weak things that you can't help dimly seeing there,
And for drawing out into the light
All the beautiful belongings that no one else had looked
Quite far enough to find.
I love you
Because you have done more than any creed could have done
To make me good, and more than any fate could have done
To make me happy.
YOU have done it
Without a touch,
Without a word,
Without a sign.
You have done it
By being yourself.
Perhaps that is what being a friend,
a lover, a husband means,after all.
