Looking for that blessed hope,
and the glorious appearing
of the great God and
our Saviour Jesus Christ:
O God, we desperately need Your discernment when something may be permissible for us but not necessarily beneficial. Please empower Your children in this nation, and all our American Heroes to resist things that are not beneficial for us so that we will not be mastered by anything! Help us to truly embrace the fact that our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in us, whom we have received from God. We are not our own. Thank You, Father! We are so much better off belonging to You than belonging to ourselves! You found our lives worth buying at a tremendously high price. Therefore please help us to honor You with our bodies. In Jesus name, Amen.
Thank You, WhatNot, for leading us in prayer today for Our American Heroes and For Our Nation.
Today’s meditation was EXACTLY what I needed to read.
Back in the 1930s, my childhood home was loving and happy, but my parents were often away. On those occasions, the center of warmth in our home was the kitchen and our tiny, joyous housekeeper named Annie.
I spent many hours with Annie, sitting at our kitchen table reading books or playing with toys and listening to her sing and hum spirituals and hymns. From her heart sprang a continual flow of wisdom, cheerfulness, and song.
One morning, with childish exuberance, I used a racial slur I had heard. Oh my, no, she said, and then proceeded to pour out her heart in a gentle lecture on the harm and hurt in that, accompanied by a terrible sadness in her eyes. I never used that word again.
I learned that we cause unfathomable sorrow when we dishonor and debase others through bigotry. Every human being is created in the image of Godmore like God than any other creature and worthy of honor. To demean that image is to wound another human being at the deepest level.
There is but one race: the human race. God has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth (Acts 17:26). We are of the same family, made to be treasured and cherished by one another.
Read: Acts 17:2231
I join in prayer for our heroes and nation!
AMEN. Thank you, WhatNot
Amen to Every Powerful Word of your Anointed Prayer, Brother WhatNot.
Standing with you in Heartfelt Agreement.
