As we bow down before the Lrod in adoration, in worship and in praise, let us remember that... this day shall never come back again. It will pass away and only memories will remain. Let us remember to be a blessing to everyone we find in the street, at home, in church and wherever we travel. Be a friend to the friendless. Jesus loves them all and so we will too. Encourage someone to continue to road to heaven. Most of our fellow brothers and sisters fall away from their walk with Christ because there was no one to encourage them. Take time to care for the sick, the infirm, those in nursing homes and the blind and the lame. Jesus cared for them and healed the lepers and opened the eyes of the blind. Let our words heal and not ever wound. With this in mind now let us all raise our voice to God in praise. Praise my soul the King of heaven. To His feet your tribute bring. Ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven. Evermore His praises sing. Henry Francis Lyte

I spent last weekend in jail for sleeping in a hospital waiting room. Like Jesus, I was handed over to authorities by my own people. But, because someone had mercy and showed me compassion, I am, once again, free, though I still have to stand before the judge. (Whew! I almost had a little praise break). I really could end it right there, but Isaiah 58:1 just won't let me.
Here's what God promises "I will deal All who afflict you" moreover, He says "I have taken out of your hand the cup of trembling, even the dregs of the cup of my fury, that I gave to you and I will place it into the hands of those who afflict you."
I know that my affliction is God's doing. He chastens those whom He loves as a way of preparing them for His greater purpose. Here's the thing about chastening. It's sort of like the TV show "Bait Car," God turns His back on his own, momentarily. However, just because you're unprotected for a moment does not give anyone else permission to tamper with you, steal you away, or lock you up in jail. God is still, very much, the owner, and the consequence for messing with His property is great (Isaiah 51:22-23)
I began using this website in 2010 (Impraying4u) to pray for others as a way of expressing gratitude for God's mercy and healing grace in my own life. Once I gave myself over completely, God begin to reveal things to me through visions and through the book of Isaiah. I couldn't help but share my experiences. I had never witnessed anyone journeying through scripture; particularly a specific book of the bible, as was (and is) happening with me.
One of my favorite scriptures: "I, and if I be lifted up, I will draw all men unto me." Throughout this journey I truly am but a vessel, through which God's glory will arise when people are gathered to Him. I now see the gathering beginning to take shape. All races, creeds and colors (it's a beautiful thing). The only ones mad about is the devil and his weaklings.
It's not about me nor anyone that God called to this group assignment. It's ALL about God. So, if allowed by PrayerRequest.com Administrators and Members I'd like to continue to take you along this journey with me. There is so much that I have not shared. God is truly blowing my mind, He's absolutely mesmerizing!
[A song in my heart. Once again, Donny Hathaway, particularly for my homeless brothers, Black and White alike, who keep watch over me as I sleep, when security guards throw me out: "Someday We'll All Be Free"]
God's Creation is beautiful. He created every bird, flower, tree, and us. Look around at creation and it will help you know God. He created this beautiful earth for us. Sadly, we ruin it with pollution and ungodly behavior. Take a moment outside to admire God's creation and to thank and praise him for it.
All our elected officials need Jesus. All candidates on Election time need God in their life. Without Gods direction and mercy we shall not accomplish anything. Upon Gods word we rest. We believe in every word that is written down. Pray for those in power. Kings, governors, presidents. God is the One who puts them there. All we have to do is to pray for God to touch their souls and save them. Did you hear any candidate telling people when they got saved? Or are they talking about money, power and the glories of this world. If so, they they are so far away from God. Our life is so short. We all need Gods wisdom and understanding. Fast and pray for America. A Christian Country. It was founded for the glory of the Lord. We must live to those standards. Upon Gods word we rest. So strong, so sure. It will lead us all to heaven when we read it daily and obey what it says. For I am here standing... says the Lord. Will you open your heart to Me? Will you hear My voice when I call? Let us all vote for the salvation of lost souls. That is what Jesus wants to see when we get to heaven. Silver and gold shall not enter heaven. Money and power shall not accompany us to eternity. The only thing that God will see in us when we get to glory is this. The souls we have brought to Jesus and the eternal Word of God written down in our hearts.
