Pray for our American Heroes
September 14, 2013 | Irish Rose

Yet you have not called upon me, O Jacob;
you have not wearied yourselves for me, O Israel.
You have not brought me sheep for burnt offerings,
nor honored me with your sacrifices.
I have not burdened you with grain offerings,
nor wearied you with demands for incense.
You have not brought any fragrant calamus for me,
or lavished on me the fat of your sacrifices.
But you have burdened me with your sins
and wearied me with your offenses.

I, even I, am he who blots out
your transgressions, for my own sake,
and remembers your sins no more.
(Isaiah 43:22-25)

Father, we thank You for the cooling weather and the lovely colors of fall.

God, we pray on behalf of our military men and women, seeking Your blessings – even life forevermore – to be given to them.

Lord, as another anniversary of 9/11 passes, we thank You for protecting our homeland these twelve years, and for all Your unmerited graciousness to us.

LORD, You have not burdened us with offerings and sacrifices, nor have You wearied us with demands. But we have burdened You with our sins and wearied You with our offenses. You know, Lord, our fitful devotion and our wandering hearts, so easily distracted from You; You know how we forget to call on You, how we neglect to weary ourselves for You. Yet You, even You, are He who blots out our transgressions, for Your own sake, and remembers our sins no more. Not our faithfulness, but Your faithfulness secures our hope; not our love for You, but Your love for us is the sure and tremendous thing. We praise You for Your persistent love, in the Name of Jesus Christ our risen Lord, Amen.

Unfailing Mercy

September 14, 2013

As I strolled through Chicago’s O’Hare airport, something caught my eye—a hat worn by someone racing through the concourse. What caught my attention was the message it conveyed in just two words: “Deny Everything.” I wondered what it meant. Don’t ever admit to guilt? Or deny yourself the pleasures and luxuries of life? I scratched my head at the mystery of those two simple words, “Deny Everything.”

One of Jesus’ followers, Simon Peter, did some denying. In a critical moment, he denied three times that He even knew Jesus! (Luke 22:57, 58,60). His fear-filled act of denial caused him such guilt and heartache that, broken by his spiritual failure, he could only go out and weep bitterly (v.62).

But Peter’s denial of Christ, like our own moments of spiritual denial, could never diminish the compassion of God. The prophet Jeremiah wrote, “Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness” (Lam. 3:22-23). We can take heart that even when we fail, our faithful God comes to us in mercy and compassion that never fails!

Thank You, Father, for Your new and never-
failing mercies. Forgive me for the times I deny
You and fail others, and teach me to run to
You for Your overflowing compassion.
Being imperfect emphasizes our dependence on God’s mercy.

Read: Luke 22:54-62

Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. . . . Great is Your faithfulness. —Lamentations 3:22-23
Bible in a Year:
Proverbs 19-21; 2 Corinthians 7

Proverbs 30:8 . . . . give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with the food that is needful for me, 9 lest I be full and deny you and say, “Who is the LORD?”

Gracious GOD, I thank YOU for all the times YOU answer prayers for our Military Men and Women. Not only theirs, but ours. OH LORD, keep our hearts fixed on YOU, for we are so prone to sway when “things” are going right, or when our loved ones are “home safe”. They too may be prone to forget the comfort that they found in walking through the shadows of death, and fearing no evil for YOUR PRESENCE is ever there with them..Amen. Help them to always remember YOUR GOOD GRACE and UNLIMITED MERCY. May the Praise of YOUR NAME remain steadfast upon our lips and theirs, now and forever more..Amen.

I Love your Beautiful Prayer So Much, Dearest Sister Irish Rose; how it Blessed my Heart!

'Not our Faithfulness, but Your Faithfulness Secures our Hope; not our Love for You, but Your Love for us is the Sure and Tremendous Thing.'

Amen, and Amen!

'The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you All.' (Rev.22:21)
