Good Friday: what is the underlying message? It is the ultimate LOVE of God!

CrossWithHeartGoodFriday

Today is Good Friday.
What does that mean?
Today, the world’s Savior died to take each of our places.
He was the unblemished Lamb of God.
Perfect in every way. He was sinless and bore all sins of all humanity.
He took all that sin to the cross, where it died with His flesh.
Why did he take our sins to the cross?
So, when we were ready, we could proclaim our rebirth via Christ.
See, when we come to God and accept Jesus as our Savior, our sins are already defeated on that old rugged cross.
Why did Jesus do this? Why did He die for you and take each of your sins to the cross?
The answer is so simple. Jesus did it for LOVE.
Jesus was God on earth in human flesh.
Jesus knew what lay ahead of Him. He knew the betrayal, agony, suffering, beatings, hate, and suffocation that waited for Him.
His flesh wanted to back out. His flesh had second thoughts. He asked the Father if this cup could pass Him (Matt 26:39).
But as we all are, He was subject to God’s will.
See, God so loved the world He gave His only Son, Jesus (John 3:16)
God gave out of His love for humanity.
If you are a parent, think of this type of sacrifice. How many of us would give our children to endure such suffering and eventually death?
I would venture to say that none of us would do this.
We love our children too much to see them endure pain and suffering.
We fight so hard to prevent them from enduring any pain.
Yet, God allowed His only Son, Jesus, to endure the most suffering, pain, and agony inflicted on any human.
Why? Why would God do all this?
LOVE!
He loves you more than you can ever imagine.
His love isn’t worldly. It is a love so powerful that it will change you forever.
His love engulfs you. His love surrounds, penetrates, encompasses, and is where His peace that passes all human understanding lives.
Once you feel it, you want to experience it more and more.
It is a love that can only be experienced in His Holy presence.
How do I know this? Because I have felt it.
There have been two occasions where He has allowed me into His presence, where I experienced His love for me.
That is how I can speak to it so profoundly.
I want more. I long to be there in that love again and again.
Now I am not unique. All of us can experience this.
We only have to ask Him and pursue Him.
God wants to be pursued. He wants us to chase after Him.
He wants us to be hungry and thirst for His presence.
He wants us to long for His presence.
Today is the perfect day to seek after God.
We are in trying times. Now is the time to accept Jesus as your Savior.
If you are ready to accept Jesus as your Savior, please pray this prayer out loud with me.
When I say out loud, I mean not under your breath and not to yourself.
Say it so the enemy can hear you.
Yes, it can be a whisper. That is loud enough for God, you, and the enemy to hear.
Today, if you want to seek salvation and Jesus as your personal Savior, pray this prayer with me:
God, I am a sinner. Forgive me for my sins. I believe Jesus died on the cross for me. I believe Jesus is your only begotten Son. I believe He died on the cross, and on the third day, He ascended to heaven and is forever seated at Your right hand. I accept Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior. God, come into my life and use me for Your glory. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
If you prayed that prayer, you are born again. You are a new child in Christ. Welcome to the Kingdom of God.
If you are able, find a good bible-based church that believes Jesus is our resurrected King and Savior.
If you cannot find a good church, don’t give up. Keep praying and seeking God for Him to lead you to one.
There are many great churches online. Pastor Paula White, Bishop TD Jakes, Hank Kunneman, and Joel Osteen are a few of my favorites.

Also, seek God as often as possible through prayer and constantly reading the bible, God’s word.
Via the bible (God’s word), God will start to reveal things to you. His word is also your spoken weapon against sickness, lack, fear, etc. It is your weapon to use against the enemy, Satan.
God’s word is power! It will never lose its power, and it cannot be altered, changed, or revoked. His word is so powerful that even God Himself cannot change His word(the bible). Never forget these things about the bible! God’s word spoken aloud will give you victory in every battle you face.
God bless you!

During this covid pandemic, here are some bible verses of encouragement.

shutterstock_ThePowerOfWordsWP2.8.20

This post was written back in March of this year. God brought to attention that perhaps there are people out there looking for places to find the words and correlating scripture for things like protection, healing, breaking the spirit of fear over themselves and their families, etc.

When He did that, I decided to repost this. Please remember how powerful prayer is. Never doubt its power and never allow anyone to talk you out of prayer because they believe it is useless.

Our prayer is pure power.  It is our communication with our God who is all powerful and holds ALL power. Our prayer asks Him to intervene in our lives and situations. Remember God’s word in Deuteronomy 31:6.

Never give up on prayers.  If possible, come in agreement with someone about the things you are praying for. Our agreed prayer is power multiplied. How do I know that?  Well, God’s word tells us that.  https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+18%3A19&version=ESV

What does God’s name say about Him? Do you know all the names of God?
Here are just a few of them.
Emmanuel – God with us.
https://www.ibelieve.com/faith/10-powerful-names-of-god-and-what-they-mean-for-us-today.html
God’s word is unchangeable, unfaltering, unwavering, and will stand forever (Matt24:35).
God’s word cannot be altered even by Him.
God holds His word above Himself.
What does this mean for us? Well, this says that God’s word will not fail us. His word will come to pass. His word is our weapon to use against the chaos of this world.
As we apply our daily armor of God, His word is referenced as our sword, which is our weapon!
His name is our peace, our healing, our provision, our protection, our restorer, our defender, our victory, etc.
His name is all the things we will ever need during our lifetime.
So how can you benefit from His word and His name right now? Well, that is the perfect question to ask.
If you believe God is God, that He is who He says He is, that His word cannot fail and that His word is a powerful weapon, then you have won half the battle.
Right now, we are facing a deadly disease. Now is the time we need God’s presence, His direction, and His answers for this difficult time.
God is not like us, and He does not do things the way we do. His ideas, His thoughts, His wisdom, His knowledge is above our same traits. This is why He is God.
We think words aren’t a big deal. We say whatever we want whenever we want, never giving a second thought about the impact those spoken words will have.
The words we speak will either cause life or death. Our words will take us on a path of blessings or curses. Whomever we speak words over, we, therefore, have impacted their life in some way, shape, or form.
Negative words spoken by other people over us can be denied or unaccepted by us.
Again, using the utterance of spoken words, we have the right to accept words spoken by someone over us.
Again, using the power of words, we have the right to deny spoken words of death over our lives.
See, words are potent! God used words to create the universe. He spoke the sun, the moon, the starts, the plant, all wildlife, the ocean, etc. into existence with His mere words.
Just like our Father in heaven, our words have power too!
We can speak things into existence, as long as they align with God’s will for our lives, according to God’s word.
If we are sick, we can speak our healing into existence using God’s word (https://www.openbible.info/topics/with_his_stripes_we_are_healed).
If we are addicted, we can break the power of addiction over our lives using God’s word (https://www.biblestudytools.com/topical-verses/bible-verses-about-addiction/).
If we are afflicted with depression, we can speak God’s word over our lives or the lives of our loved ones and break depression (https://www.biblestudytools.com/topical-verses/depression-bible-verses/).
If we are facing a world pandemic, we can speak God’s word to call for His safety and protection over our family and our loved ones (https://www.biblestudytools.com/topical-verses/bible-verses-about-protection/).
If we are facing the loss of a job and the ability to provide a living for our family, we can speak God’s word of blessings and prosperity over our lives (https://bible.knowing-jesus.com/topics/God~s-Provision).
We need to remind God of His word all the time. Not that He forgets His word but to build our faith.
In essence, to tell God, this is who You are, and this is what You said You would do.
Hence the verse faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of Christ (Rom10:17).
We must hear, speak, and proclaim His word, His goodness, and His love for us all the time.
When we utter His living word over our lives at all times, this builds faith and stirs the atmosphere with our expectations.
We sit in anticipation, waiting, and watching for the miracles of God. And they must appear because we are stirring the atmosphere with our spoken utterances and with our worship.
You must know how powerful words are. Our words can bless or curse. They can lift or tear down, or they can build up or destroy.
Please don’t think that you can apply God’s principle of blessing over your life for one day and expect to see miracles the next day.
The process of speaking life, protection, provision is a lifetime daily job.
Now, I know what you are thinking. You probably think that this will be exhausting.
We are so used to instant gratification. The majority of the time, God is NOT an immediate gratification type of God.
He wants you to be in it for the long haul. He wants you to pursue Him diligently with your whole heart.
Now once you see the manifestation of God’s spoken word in your life, this will become like second nature.
At this point, you will continue to go from level to level in your faith, your blessings, and your prosperity.
Some of us will find this a little challenging to speak positive words all the time. Some of us will find it a little difficult to think before we speak.
God will help with this too. If you want to pursue this, you will have to go to God in prayer to ask for His help.
Do not be ashamed or embarrassed to ask God for help. God is not the God of guilt, shame, and embarrassment. He is always the God of grace, love, nurturing, and peace.  He is a caring and loving God!

Start a new tradition in your family’s history of Thanksgiving.

Many of us are looking and searching for happiness.
We want to be happy. We look to other people, things, the newest gadgets, a new house, a new car, etc.
Many individuals seek personal coaches, gurus, and other programs to “find” happiness. Some of those people even spend a hefty amount to locate this elusive thing we call “happiness.”

But the answer is simple. Finding happiness isn’t elusive at all. Happiness can be found when we look at things differently.
We tell ourselves that we will be happy when we lose x number of pounds, when we finally get married, when we find that special someone, we have been looking for such a long time, when we have a family, when we get rich, etc.
We tell ourselves when this particular event happens, then we will be delighted, but is that true? And we have to think about when exactly will that event take place in our lives?
Life is too short to put off genuinely being happy and content.
Now here is the very simple solution.
Be thankful. Wow! Yep, short and sweet.
See, being thankful changes your attitude, changes how you see things, and invites new possibilities into your life.
Being thankful opens your eyes to see all the beauty around you.
Now there has to be something in your life to be thankful for. Today, as we celebrate Thanksgiving, we are celebrating being thankful.
Let that thankfulness continue on tomorrow, next week, next month, and throughout the year.
If you think that this is too simple to work, then experiment with it. Try being thankful for a week and see what happens.
Find that one thing in your life to be thankful for and focus on that. When you start there, you will begin to see other things to be grateful for that you never realized before.
See, God’s word tells us in Phil 4:6 to not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Today, decide to be happy by being thankful.
I pray that your Thanksgiving a safe, blessed, and most of all, full of happiness.
God bless you.

Every day in 2021 should be Father’s Day.

We wonder why our schools, grocery stores, and malls have become shooting ranges.

Americans are angry and frustrated. Does this excuse this type of horrendous activity? No, not at all. 

At this very minute, our economy is failing, and our streets are unsafe.

And now it is okay, according to some, to take that anger and doll it out on the innocent.

When did we lose control of our civility? Where was it that we took a wrong turn?

Was it the removal of God and prayer from our schools? Perhaps, it was the introduction of social media to our society and our youth. 

Maybe, it was the increase in the murder of innocent babies at our local abortion clinics. 

Could it be when other people decided that more skin, sex, violence, and cursing were okay for younger and younger audiences to view on television or in movies? Was this the catalyst that started the demise of our civility?

Perhaps, even the introduction of more and more broken homes with absent fathers leaving mothers to take up the slack.

Was it when others decided it was best for both parents to have to work? Was the need for a two-income family that pushed our society to the beginning of our demise?

Maybe, just maybe, it was the culmination of several of these things.

We may never know the one single event that caused the beginning of the fall of our society, but there is one thing we must realize and understand that is true.

Our enemy wants and desires the destruction of the family unit. 

He wants men to be weak, frail, afraid, and timid. 

Why does he want this? Well, the father is the head of the family. He is the leader of the family. He is the one who leads his family to success. 

He is the strength. He shows his sons how to become successful, strong, and productive men that will lead their future families down the same path. 

The father is the one who shows their daughters what a strong, faithful, honest, and unwavering man looks like. 

He sets the stage for his daughters to seek out future husbands with the same qualities. 

The father shows his daughters that they are worthy of respect and dignity. 

Yes, the father is the substantial leader that every family needs. 

As I write about the importance of the father, I am in no way undermining the value of the mother in the family unit.

Also, I am not saying that the father is more important than the mother either. 

Each is equally important. The mother and the father play vital roles in the family unit. They are equal partners in every family unit.  

So here we are, where we see others trying to silence men. 

The father’s removal from the family picture leads to the reduction of strength, dignity, respect of the family. 

You have to understand that the family unit is powerful. They support each other, they love each other, and most importantly, they pray together. 

God’s word says that were two or more gather in agreement, He is among them (Matt18:19-20). 

The family praying in unison and agreement is a powerful thing. The enemy knows that.  

This family praying and agreeing can cause significant shifts in their lives, in the lives of their immediate family members, changes in their extended families, shifts in their schools, their communities, their cities, and their states.  

Their persistent, fervent, and effectual prayer will shake and cause mountains to move. 

The family unit prayer together in agreement has pure power.

That is why there is such a fight going on to destroy the family and the father.

Right now, we must start coming back together as family units and pray in agreement. 

Right this very moment, we are in contention with that demonic activity. 

Please make no mistake about what we are facing. 

This “new world order” is nothing more than demonic activity. 

We are fighting to preserve our freedom, voices, opinions, and way of life we love. We are fighting against the demonic activity of those who think they can defeat almighty God. 

We must combat this demonic activity with God, praying, fasting, and planting seeds in good soil. 

Please remember that no demon or devil can stand up to God and to the most potent name of them all, which is the name of Jesus. 

The blood of Jesus will never lose its power!

Amen!

We cannot lose focus or our hope. We cannot give up because that is what the enemy wants. 

God is not finished! We must keep praying and seeking God’s help to stop those determined to let the enemy take over. 

Stay focused, stay determined, stay active, and keep your eyes on God.

9 11 – we will never forget.

Today, we remember the events that unfolded 20 years ago, on September 11, 2001.

We remember the bravery on display as firefighters rushed in to help those in distress.

We remember watching in horror as so many individuals fell or leaped to their deaths as they faced a horrible decision to stay inside this burning building or fall to their deaths. 

We watched in disbelief as so many of our citizens lost their lives that day. 

We looked on in utter pain and anguish as so many people staggered out of those buildings with life-changing injuries. 

We watched in horror as one at a time, one tower collapsed. Then the other collapsed from the intense heat of jet engine fuel.

We cried out to God as we wondered why this was happening. 

We prayed in unison as we asked God to help all those innocent people. 

Today, we remember, but perhaps the question we should ask is how can we ever forget? 

This event was meant to destroy America, but it had the opposite effect.

In the days following this horrific event, our country came together in unity and love. 

We came together in love for one another and for our beloved America. 

How ironic that today as we reflect, there are forces at work trying to tear America and Its citizens apart again. 

Today, there are those using racism and hate to divide our country and all our countrymen. 

We did not let our house divide then, and we cannot let it divide now. 

God’s word tells us that a house divided on itself, cannot stand (Mark 3:25)

https://biblehub.com/mark/3-25.htm

We must refuse all those pushing division, hate, anger, and racism on us. 

We must tell them to flat out that we will not accept their lies and dishonesty.

Today, let us embrace that camaraderie that we held back on September 11, 2001. Today, let us reignite that love and passion for America. 

Most of all, let us return to God and reignite a fire and love for Him again.

He is and will always be the foundation of America. 

America was built on Him and His strong foundation of truth, justice, love, honor, and bravery.

Yes, America is not perfect, but we search to be and do better tomorrow and all the tomorrows that follow with God’s grace. 

With God leading the way, America will never fail. She may falter, but America will rise again to shine brighter than ever. 

America will lead the way again. 

We may have fallen to one knee, but the sleeping giant that is America will rise again to be more formidable than ever. 

America, don’t give up on God. Keep praying, keep fasting, keep declaring God’s victory over this evil that is trying to overtake America. 

God bless America!

The fall of Afghanistan will not be the downfall of American bravery, courage, and resilience.

To all those who are laughing at America, know this, America is not done.

America has an unbreakable resilience.  

Our brave American’s don’t know what the word quit means.

We will make a way when everyone has counted us out.

Once again, evil has woken up an American sleeping giant.  

We have one thing in our corner that no one is thinking about. That is God and our faith.

See, America was founded on a God that never stops fighting for us.

Right now, at this very moment, brave American’s are planning for a victory so big that only God can bring it to pass.

Right now, we don’t know how it will happen, but we know it will happen.

Right now, our brave American veterans who have so courageously fought for us before are packing their bags, and with their faith that knows no bounds, they will be victorious!

In the name that is about all names, Jesus, our Savior, we call forth our victory.  

In the name of Jesus, our Savior, we call on Godly protection for every brave veteran making the journey to save our stranded American citizens and our allies.

In the name of Jesus, we call on every angel to stand in the divine protection of each brave veteran and enlisted service person.

God, You will make this impossible situation victorious for us. In the name of Jesus, we call forth this victory.  

God, let Your name and the name of our Savior fill the mouths of our veterans and enlisted soldiers.

God, listen and move when they call on Your name.

God, we will see and hear with our own eyes and ears about Your miraculous move to save America.

Forever, Your name will go down in history as the God whose hand moved in a powerful way to save America as Her citizens called out to You for divine assistance.

Father, make a way for every person responsible for this utter and disastrous failure to bring our citizens and troops homes safely, face justice. God, let the truth come out. God, bring forth whistleblowers so the validity of their disastrous decisions can be made known.

God, Your word says that secret things come to light (Luke 8:17).

God, let those responsible for this mess and their evil lies and deeds be known to all humanity!

God, we decree and declare this to be so in the mighty name of Jesus, our Savior.

God, restore America and Her greatness.

God, bless America once again. Father, I know you aren’t done with Her. I know She will shine brightly once again like never before.

God, finally, we lift all those 13 American servicemen and women who passed away this past week. 

God, be with their families, take every ounce of pain and grief away from them, and replace their sorrow with joy. God, let them know that their sacrifice is not and will never be in vain.

God, fill them with a peace that passes understanding. Holy Spirit, we call upon Your promise in Isiah 61:3. God, Your word says that You will give  3to console the mourners in Zion— to give them a crown of beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, and a garment of praise for a spirit of despair. So they will be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.

God, let them know that the American people will never forget the bravery of their loved ones who served so courageously.  

Father, finally, we ask that You bring all those responsible for killing and maiming so many innocent people to justice. God let all the world know who they are. Father, they cannot hide from You. 

We ask these things in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.

Loneliness – you are never home alone.

Loneliness, are you feeling it? Is it a constant companion? That empty hollow feeling compounded by fear. I understand. 

I, too, have felt it. That dark empty feeling that is trying to overtake every part of your thoughts and being. 

Whatever you do, you cannot let it win. Don’t stay and dwell in that empty dark place of hopelessness. 

It is dangerous there. Staying there in that utter place of despair makes it easier to succumb to the thoughts of suicide.

There is something that you need to understand. You are never alone, you have God, and you will ALWAYS have God!

He will never leave or abandon you (Heb 13:5) https://biblehub.com/hebrews/13-5.htm

Call out to Him.

I know many say that God isn’t real because you can’t see Him. You may not be able to see Him, but you can always feel His presence. 

His presence is real. How does it feel in the presence of God?

It is peaceful there. In God’s presence, there is His love. A love that we don’t know as a human. It is a love that penetrates every fiber of your being. His love is consuming, powerful, engulfing, and strong. His love is never-ending. In His presence, His love has no boundaries. 

It is a love that you will never feel from another human. It is a love that is indescribable. The love of God is something you can only experience while in His presence. 

How do you reach His presence? We can come into God’s presence via prayer and primarily through our worship.

Our worship has power! Our worship, spoken decrees and declarations of God’s words and His promises, and prayer are the most potent weapons we have as Christians. 

These things are the weapons we use to defeat all the fear, doubt, loneliness, emptiness, addictions, etc., we are facing or will ever face in our lives. 

Right now, more than ever before, we are facing so much doubt and fear. Now, right now, is the time to seek God. If you don’t know Him, now is the time to make Him the center of your life. 

Those in power are seeking to control every aspect of our lives. 

How do we combat that power? With the promises of God. 

What are the promises of God? His promises are written in His word, which is the Holy Bible. 

Make no mistakes about it. There is only one true living God. There is only one Savior, His son Jesus, and there is only one true living spirit of God. That is the Holy Spirit. These three are the Holy Trinity. 

Today is the perfect day to seek God, to accept Jesus as your personal Savior. 

I am not talking about a cookie-cutter relationship with God. I am not talking about saying repeat prayers to seek God’s forgiveness and love. 

That is man’s idea of how God works. With our God, there is no middle man. 

No person, saint, or the Virgin Mary, can forgive your sins. Please, no mistake, I am in no way bashing the mother of Jesus. I thank God for her and her bravery to become the mother of our living Savior, Jesus.

Only God, through our Savior Jesus, can forgive all our sins. 

How do you have a personal relationship with God? That is easy. Seek Him, and you will find Him (Matt7:7)https://www.biblehub.com/matthew/7-7.htm. Call out to Him, and He will answer you (Psl91:15) https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Psalms-91-15/.

God isn’t complicated. It is us as humans that complicate Him with our silly rules and our ideas.

How do you accept Jesus as your personal Savior? That is simple too. If you genuinely believe that Jesus is the one true son of God, that He rose from the dead after taking your place on the cross, then repeat this prayer:

Would you please pray with me? “Dear Father, please forgive me for my sins. God, please cleanse me with the precious blood of Jesus. I know Christ died on the cross for me. I know He was crucified, buried, and then arose on the third day. I know He ascended and now sits on the right hand of God. I receive Jesus as my Savior. Amen. 

Do you need more scriptures for sickness, addiction, depression, etc.? Please read this previous post:

If you prayed that prayer of Salvation above to receive Jesus as your Savior, you might be asking what is next. Well, if you can, find a good church that believes in the Holy Trinity, Jesus is our Savior, and God is the one true living God. Also, they must believe in the resurrection. And, they must believe that God’s word is the Holy Bible. 

If you are unable to find a church like that, keep trying and praying for it. You also need to delve into God’s word. Read it daily and as often as possible. 

Also, pray, seek God, and worship God. He is worthy to receive all our worship.

God bless each one of you.

Samson wishes you a happy 4th of July.

Good Friday.

Can you imagine what Jesus felt this morning? I imagine He felt alone, abandoned, petrified, unsure, and wanted to back out of the events that would occur.
Remember, Jesus was human for a reason. He became a man to experience every emotion and feeling we as humans feel. God wanted firsthand knowledge of what it was to walk through a human life.
God also needed a man of flesh who was also God to walk through His life as the perfect unblemished, sinless God.
Jesus had to become the perfect sacrifice. A sacrifice for all humankind. A gift so perfect that no other person could or would have to walk His path again. Jesus was and will always be the perfect, sinless, Lamb of God. The blood shed at the cross is so powerful that NOTHING can defeat it. By the blood of Jesus, we are set free. By the strips He bore on His back, we are healed. Praise the holy Lamb of God!
No other person could have taken Jesus’ place. No other sacrifice could have the effect that Jesus’ sacrifice did.
God knows everything thing you face today. Nothing is too big for Him. He knows everything you feel because He experienced it via His Son Jesus.
Today is the perfect day to place God first in your life.
If you would like to accept Jesus as your personal Savior, pray this prayer with me. Perhaps you are backslidden. Today is also the perfect day to renew your walk with God. Pray with me:
God, I am a sinner. Forgive me for my sins. I believe Jesus died on the cross for me. I believe Jesus is your only begotten Son. I believe He died on the cross, and on the third day, He ascended to heaven and is forever seated at Your right hand. I accept Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior. God, come into my life and use me for Your glory. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.

Good Friday.

half-crown-thorns-purpleWP4.19.19lg

Today we celebrate our glorious Savior, Jesus. We celebrate the life He gave for every one of us.
He gave His life willingly for each one of us as He took our place on that retched cross.
He was sinless, yet He bore each one of our sins on that cross.
He defeated death, sickness, sin, and every burden at that cross. In doing so, we don’t have to carry the burdens our of sins.
He suffered through beatings, mockery, hate, thrones driven into His skull, and the agonizingly slow death of affixation.
I can never tell Him thank You enough! I am forever grateful.
He gave us freedom from the overwhelming price of our sins which is a price we can never pay. JESUS PAID IT ALL!
Today, if you do not know Jesus as your personal Savior, please repeat these words with me:
Jesus, I am a sinner, forgive me! Father, cleanse me with the precious blood of our Savior, Jesus. God, let me seek, know, and understand You like no one else does.
God throw each one of my sins in the sea of forgetfulness never to be remembered by You again.
I receive Jesus, as my personal Savior. Today, I am free from sin, death, and every burden.
God, bless me with a knowledge of who You are.
Thank You for loving me the way that you do, never giving up on me, and for pursuing me relentlessly.
In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
