Have you ever been pounded by a message over and over again until you finally say “Ok I get it”?
This has been me, I have been hearing, that by taking 10 minutes a day for prayer will change your outlook on life. You may still have to deal with your fussy baby, your can’t make me do what you say youngsters, and your getting to big for their britches teenagers. However, the way you deal with these and many other things should change and help you feel that you are not in control but that the Lord is and who better to have at the controls?
Hope you all will try it with me.
“And I will deliver thee in that day, saith the Lord: and thou shalt not be given into the hands of the men whom thou fearest: But delivering, I will deliver thee, and thou shalt not fall by the sword: but thy life shall be saved for thee, because thou hast put thy trust in me, saith the Lord.”
Prophecy of Jeremias 39: 17-18 DRB (www.drbo.org)
Always rejoice. Pray without ceasing. In all things give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you all. Extinguish not the spirit. Despise not prophecies.
Thessalonians 5: 17-20 DRB (www.drbo.org)
But you shall receive the power of the Holy Ghost coming upon you, and you shall be witnesses unto me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and even to the uttermost part of the earth. And when he had said these things, while they looked on, he was raised up: and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they were beholding him going up to heaven, behold two men stood by them in white garments.

How much more shall the blood of Christ, who by the Holy Ghost offered himself unspotted unto God, cleanse our conscience from dead works, to serve the living God?
Epistles of St. Paul 9:9 DRB (www.drbo.org)
“Being confident of this very thing, that he, who hath begun a good work in you, will perfect it unto the day of Christ Jesus. As it is meet for me to think this for you all, for that I have you in my heart; and that in my bands, and in the defence and confirmation of the gospel, you all are partakers of my joy.”
Epistles of St.Paul to the Philippians 1: 6-7 DRB (www.drbo.org)
“For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name’ s sake. And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house. And laying his hands upon him, he said: Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus hath sent me, he that appeared to thee in the way as thou camest; that thou mayest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost. And immediately there fell from his eyes as it were scales, and he received his sight; and rising up, he was baptized. And when he had taken meat, he was strengthened. And he was with the disciples that were at Damascus, for some days. And immediately he preached Jesus in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God.”
