A Prayer For The Crisis In the World

 



Dear Lord, King of all nations, Prince of Peace, I ask that you put an end to the hostility in the world in Jesus' name.

Father God, let Your Peace which surpasses all understanding, guard our hearts and our minds in Christ Jesus.

Father God, I ask that you make all the wars cease in Jesus' name.

Father God, I ask that you rescue those who are vulnerable from the hand of their enemies to enable them to serve you without fear in Jesus' name (Luke 1:74-75).

Lord Jesus, have mercy.

Help someone else pray for the world today by sharing this prayer with them. 

I am asking God to strengthen your body, soul and mind this new week in Jesus' name.

Have a lovely week!

Yours in Christ,

Mysses Lafunky

Why should I make choices that Please the Lord?

Hello Readers & Followers,

I hope your week is going on well and I hope the weather is lovely where you are. It's raining here at the moment, I need to prepare a hot drink as soon as I finish typing this article. 

Proverbs 14:12 (EXB version) says "Some people think they are doing right (There is a path that seems straight to a person), but in the end, it leads to death.



Let me share something with you. One of my friends recently informed me that, as she was waiting at a bus stop for a mode of public transport, the Holy Spirit asked her not to enter the first mode of public transport that arrived. The Holy Spirit asked her to wait for the next one.

Based on her understanding, she couldn't comprehend why she could not enter the public transport as she had been waiting for a while. Nevertheless, she heeded the instruction from the Holy Spirit and she waited for the next public transport. As the driver was driving to her destination, she noticed the transportation that she didn't enter had been involved in a gruesome accident, she couldn't believe it as if she had not heeded the warning from the Holy Spirit, she would have been part of the casualties.  

Proverbs 3:5-7 (NIV version) says "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil."

My friend made the choice to trust in the Lord to lead her. What if she didn't heed the instruction from the Holy Spirit, what would have happened to her?  

When you choose to follow the directions from the Lord, you will be the one to reap the rewards. So, why not allow God to direct your choices?  There will be times that some choices would be right but God is saying, it isn't yet time for you to make that particular choice.
