These are some of the prayers that I say daily. Fashioned after the Book of Isaiah and the Book of Psalms, I pray that they bring you the encouragement that they bring me.
Whether I turn to the right or to the left, I hear the One True God's Voice within me saying, (your name), this is the way, walk in it; here are the answers, hear them. Isaiah 30:21
For the One True God … [Read More...]
Looking at the world around us, everything is chaos and there is no peace to be found. Divisiveness is everywhere. Wars and rumors of war is the world landscape. Even though peace cannot be found in the world, it can be found within, in the foundation of your being. Build a foundation so strong, so cemented in the Love of God and the love of neighbor that you become unmovable, … [Read More...]
"And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them".
1 John 4:16 NIV

This kind of power is paid for … [Read More...]

I love the Book of Psalms, it is one of the most beautiful collection of love songs to the Lord God. We lost the music to the words but the words speak of a personal relationship to the Living God. My favorite which I say every morning is Psalm 91.
It sets the tone for my day and I don't leave my house without saying it or sometimes singing it creating my own melody. For me, it … [Read More...]
