Morning prayer

What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

Inspiration

We have heard the phrase, “You are what you eat.” Consider what you consume and put into your body on a regular basis: do you think that you treat your body as a temple of the Holy Ghost? I know that I have been guilty of gluttony and have had issues with alcohol that I am not proud of. This life is a gift and we only have one shot. What a shame it is to waste our time and health on weaknesses of the flesh. Sadly, in these modern times, gluttony is literally a deadly sin.

Prayers

My body is a temple of the Holy Ghost. Give me this day my daily bread, and the strength and wisdom to accept only my daily amount. Lord, I pray that You help me to approach all things with moderation, but know that I am a sinner. I want what I cannot have, and that which I do have, I want more of. Hold my hand, loving God, and show me the path towards a healthy and loving relationship with You. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Morning prayer

But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

Inspiration

It is easy for us to sit in church and listen to the word and tell ourselves that is enough. But is it actually getting through to us? If we have any actual faith, God tells us it will move us into action. If we are not moved to action, we must reconsider the state of our faith. Even if we have great understanding of the word, if we don’t have faith, we have nothing.

Prayers

Lord, light my heart aflame with passion for You. May I always be longing to serve You. Cast away all my laziness and let it be behind me, just as all sin is behind me in Christ. Make me a servant of Your kingdom. Amen.

Night prayer

Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?

Inspiration

Men are but limited in death. Their reach in this world only so far, their character only so good as their last breath. This goes as much for our enemies, despots, or unbelievers as ourselves. But count yourselves lucky, for only those who truly believe in our Christ and savior shall know the eternal beyond this. Only we understand that life is beyond these earthly foibles.

Prayers

God my Father, friend of man and giver of life, hallowed be your name. Hallowed be your covenant with the faithful, who know that this world, is but a speck of dust compared to what is to come within your Heavenly Kingdom. Help us to never forget, that what is most important in our lives is for our spirit to serve you Lord, and not fall prey to the vagaries of men. Amen.

What does it means to be wise

If I asked you who the wisest person in the Bible was, who would you say? Maybe Jesus, maybe Moses, but the name Solomon is almost synonymous with wisdom, referenced several times in the books of the Bible (especially 1 Kings 3 and 4). His wisdom was so great that God rewarded him as He rewarded no other man on earth: He chose Solomon as the person to build His temple in Jerusalem. King David is one of the most lauded characters in the Old Testament, and he was ready to build the temple for God. God chose his son, Solomon, known for his wisdom, rather than David, a conquering war hero, known perhaps too much for bloodshed and sin. David accepts this nobly, for he knows that Solomon is…the wise choice (1 Chronicles 28-29).
There are 2 things to notice about these verses: first, it is God’s favor to wisdom. With sound counsel, understanding, and wisdom, there is strength.
The second thing to notice is what God abhors: evil, pride, and arrogance. These are the things that God hates. These are the evil way, the path to darkness. God does not hate many things, but these are the things He makes clear to use the word hate in reference to. If we are to fully understand and follow the word of the Lord, we must remember these verses: to closely follow God’s path, we must love wisdom and hate pride and arrogance. To do so grants us more wisdom and strength. With these things, we can build our own inner temple, just as Solomon did, and join God, Solomon, and Christ, in the temple of heaven.

Amen…….

Morning prayer

Lord, deliver me from temptation to thy bosom and bounty. Lord, control my desires. I love You Lord my God. For it is Your mercy that allows me to live the great life I live. Life is good. Life is God. Amen.

Inspiration

Our heart is not to be trusted, it follows its own path and desires. Our Lord and Savior knows the heart and our temptations. He alone can tame our hearts and He alone can guide us to the LIGHT where we can feast with Him Above.

Inspiration

The Lord loves to hear our prayer. Within our daily lives, wherever we can, it is good to always keep open a line of communication to him. When many of us were young, prayers may have been simply things you said before bed or maybe before a meal. Whilst there is nothing wrong with this, personally I would encourage all followers of Christ to it much more regularly, in ones daily activities. They need not be long prayers, simply only short or brief lines addressed as to ones friend, in sharing ones thoughts and feelings, in asking for guidance as regularly as possible. In this, in regular communion with God, may we improve our ability to listen and to hear when he speaks to us.

Let’s pray together……….
