THE CROSS Dear Lord, it all happened on the cross, didn't it? Even then, in the darkness of those hours -- Your suffering, Your bleeding, Your dying, Your separation from the Father -- even then, You were thinking of me! ... You died for my sins, for my diseases, for my healing, and that I might never have to know separation from You. ... Help me, Lord, to live that I may be more worthy of Your sacrifice, and thank You for Your promise of victory in my life! In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
LIFE ETERNAL Dear Lord, thank You for Easter -- Your gift to me: the sunrise of my world, victory over pain, conquest of death, flowers reborn and birds rejoicing, acceptance unqualified, strength unlimited, and the promise of LIFE ETERNAL! ... Easter gives my life meaning. Because of You, I too can LIVE! In Jesus' name I pray.
MORNING PRAYER Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and take my life and my will into your hands. Grant me the gifts of the Holy Spirit that I may be inspired today in all that I
say, do and think to achieve harmony with the Will of the Father through living by Your Word. Amen
THE LORDS PRAYER Our father, who art in heaven; Hollowed be thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; And forgive us
our trespasses as we forgive those who trespasses against us; And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from Evil. Amen
MY FAITH Dear Lord, sometimes we don't listen, or don't comprehend, or almost subconsciously tune out Your words, thinking, "those words must be for someone else." ... Forgive us Lord, for often being like a flock of ducks that listened to a pastor's sermon, and heard him tell them that they could fly! ... Then on the way out of the church, they said to each other: "Wasn't that a good sermon?" - as they waddled on home. ... Oh Lord, help me to see that unless I listen to Your Word on Sundays, and unless I take it in, seek the Holy Spirit's guidance, and let it penetrate the depths of my spirit, then on Mondays I will be no different than the ducks. If I am to increase my faith, then I must be open to growth, for You have a greater vision for me than to see me aimlessly waddle through my life. ... Open my eyes, Lord, and let me desire all that You have for me.
In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen
IF IT SHOULD BE (For A Pet) If it should be that I grow weak, And the pain should keep me from my sleep, Then you must do what must be done, For this last battle cannot be won. You will be sad, I understand, Don't let your grief then stay your hand, For this day more that all the rest, Your love for me must stand the test. We've had so many happy years, What is to come can hold no fears, You'd not want me to suffer so, The time has come to let me go. Take me where my need they'll tend,
And please stay with me until the end, I know in time that you will see, The kindness that you have done for me, Although my tail its last has waved, From pain and suffering I've been saved.
Please do not grieve, it must be you, Who had this painful thing to do, We've been so close, we two, these years, Don't let your heart hold back its tears.
