March 16th 2019 – I Will Never Leave You!

“Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5)

Life can sometimes be very tough on people especially when someone feels alone. Maybe your children don’t call, or your far from home and miss your family. Maybe your still waiting on a husband or a wife, or your mariage is in trouble and your seperated. Possibly you have lost a loved one.

Not everyone has the pleasure of having a family or a spouse. God provides for our needs, but He goes even further and provides us with His very presence. Jesus hasn’t forgotten about you. His name is Immanuel, which means “God with us.” Maybe your parents have forgotten about you. But God your Father has not forgotten about you.

One of the special benefits of having Jesus in your life is undoing loneliness. Jesus said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5). From the original language, it literally reads something like this: “I will never, no never, no never leave you or forsake you.” That means, He is going to be with you in the happy days. He is going to be with you in the sad days. He is going to be with you on the hard days, the lonely days. He will be with you through all of your days. Then He will be waiting for you on the other side to welcome you into glory. You don’t have to be afraid, because God is with you.

I was recently asked by someone  “How do you get through the lonelyness and sadness if you have lost a loved one? Is there a book I can read?” My answer is that you don’t need a manual; you need Immanuel. You need to know that God is there. You need Jesus and need to lean into Him. That is the essential message that needs to be taught to the lost and lonely.

What we are longing for, deep down inside, is Jesus!

God is with us. He is here for you.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You for sticking by me through good times and bad times. You are the true friend. Help me to seek You and  trust you and Your promise in these times. Please help me through the times of panic, the times when the loneliness is crippling and I cant breathe. Hold me close Jesus when I feel alone. Remind me that You are here and walk the path with me. That You love me when I am unable to see past the pain. I pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Ask Jesus into your life.

Jesus, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross at Calvary, and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself in life, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in Jesus’ precious name Amen.

March 14th 2019 – The Daily Grind Part 3 of 3

God’s Amazing Love

“And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.(Colossians 3:14)

Paul wrote Romans to give us direction, that we are to use love in our interactions with each other. “Agape” an unconditional “God” love.

Now imagine being locked in a room with twenty people. Unable to get out until all are of one mind together. Each person has their own idea of how to solve the situation. God asks us to be of one mind.

Now may the God who gives perseverance and encouragement grant you to be of the same mind with one another according to Christ Jesus. (Romans 15:5)

If you have twenty people who think they have the solution, that door will never open. This is very much how the world is today. Everyone has an opinion and thinks their opinion is right. When we take out us and place God in the equation things can change in a huge way. I call this the “G Factor” the God factor. Paul gave us a formula sent form God to become one with all in Him then laced it all with Love. One key factor is to be humble, something rare in the world today. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” (James 4:6)
In order to be of one mind we have to be humble and have a servant heart. This is love in action.

“But I am giving you a new command. You must love each other, just as I have loved you.” (John 13:34)

If the world could put this into action, what a wonderful world this would be. In order to know this kind of love you need to know the Loving God. Asking Jesus in your life and He gives you many gifts all free and paid for by Jesus. The agape love is from God. Agape love is selfless, sacrificial, unconditional love, the kind of love Jesus has for His Father and for His followers.

That is the key to how we serve one another. This love takes out the our judgement of others. It allows us to want to serve others, forgive, encourage, learn and enjoy the fruits of the Spirit in your life.

The Fruit of the Spirit is a term that the apostle Paul uses to sum up nine visible attributes of a true Christian life. They are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control (Galatians 5:22).

My hope is that you have the Love of God. If not you might consider this wonderful gift, paid in full by the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross. He offers this gift to you just for asking Him into your life. It’s the ultimate gift, forgiveness and eternal life in heaven.

“The shape of God’s true love (Agape Love) isn’t a heart. It’s a cross”

Prayer:

Dear Lord, Please forgive me for all the times I have forgotten Your love. Give me the power to overcome sin and to seek You with all my heart. Teach me through Your Word and guide me by Your Spirit to be able to love others as You love me. Thank You for the precious gift of salvation. Thank You for making a way for me to be cleansed of all my sins. Lord, if I have sinned against You today, forgive me and help me live for You in all I do. Father, I stand on Your Truth in 1 John 1:9 that says if I confess my sins, You will cleanse me of all unrighteousness. Wash me clean and use me for Your kingdom today. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Watch “AMAZING LOVE – Passion of Christ” on YouTube

(Please pray this prayer for Repentance, Salvation and Eternal Life with Jesus)

Father God, I am truly sorry. I repent and ask You to forgive me. I want to follow you and ask you (into) or (back into) my life. I acknowledge that Jesus Christ died on the cross for me all my sins are forgiven in His name. I repent and cancel all access to my life by evil spirits. I claim the blood of Jesus over me as my protection. I command all evil spirits that have entered my body or mind, to leave me now in Jesus’ name. I now make a new commitment to guard my eyes and take every thought captive in obedience to Christ. I will walk by the guidance of the Holy Spirit. I will work to take control of my body and anew my mind, I will depend on the Holy Spirit to help me accomplish this, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

March 8th 2019 – Time to Shine

“These divisions of the gatekeepers were named for their family leaders, and like the other Levites, they served at the house of the Lord.” (1 Chronicles 26:12)

Will you rust or will you shine? Time does interesting things to us, our bodies and our relationships. We seem to have this preconceived idea that time will always help us sort things out. That with time it somehow helps our priorities to rise to the top and solves our problems. Honestly, it really doesn’t. We think that time heals all wounds and yet time can often wound all our heals. We have to decide on a daily basis what is important. Is God important to you? If God is important to you, then His Kingdom priorities become your priorities. When we say we are following Jesus, this should describe an active and ongoing relationship with Jesus. Jesus said we are the light of the world. Actually, He said “YOU” are the light of the world. As you serve God, your light shines.

“If the Good News we preach is hidden behind a veil, it is hidden only from people who are perishing. Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God. (2 Corinthians 4:3-4)

“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”
(Matthew 5:14-16)

“Those who are wise will shine as bright as the sky, and those who lead many to righteousness will shine like the stars forever. (Daniel 12:3)

Serve God and let your light shine in a cold, dark and hurting world. As your light shines, it will change your life, change the world and give spiritual light and sight to your family, friends and loved ones. So your call… shine like the stars forever or rust like an old nail. You are called to shine. Shine on loved one, shine on… forever.

“It is when we give our lives to the work of the Kingdom that we shine the brightest.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You for loving me. Thank You for the opportunity and reminder to shine for You. I am grateful that You have gifted me with unique abilities and talents to serve in Your Kingdom. Thank You for giving me the power to choose. Lord, my choices affect the souls of men and women whose lives are eternally hanging in the balance of my decision. I want to give my life away and shine like a star in the night sky. At times, I am fearful of being wounded and hurt in the battle, but Lord, if You could change the world with eleven disciples I know You can use me as I stand with other believers. Empower me with Your strength to encourage, pray, support, serve, love and give to others. I want to do all I can to reach all I can. I choose to let my good works shine and serve in the house of the Lord. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

March 5th 2019 – Threshold

“We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.”(2nd Corinthians 5:8)

The belief of the Greeks during the time of Jesus and Paul was that death swallowed up everything including life, people and animals. The Bible reverses that and says that life swallows up death and victory swallows up death.

“Death is swallowed up in victory.” (1 Corinthians 15:54)

“these dying bodies will be swallowed up by life.” (2 Corinthians 5:4)

How awesome is this? Life’s greatest unknown, death, is both life’s greatest enemy and greatest fear, yet it is turned upside down and inside out by our God. Jesus not only turned death into victory, but also the tomb into a changing closet. Instead of fear, death can reveal a deep confidence and trust in God. The more you read the Bible, the stronger this confidence becomes (Romans 10:17).

“We are fully confident.” The two thieves that faced death with Jesus tell us an interesting story. One taunted and teased Jesus, and the other asked Jesus for forgiveness. The big question is, “Which thief are you?” Jesus said to the one who asked for forgiveness, “Today, you will be with me in paradise.” (2 Corinthians 5:8)

There is nothing to fear about paradise, and there is nothing to fear about heaven or the journey there.

“For the believer, death is the threshold of heaven.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You for loving me. Thank You for dying for me on the cross so that I could be forgiven. Lord, sometimes I do not understand heaven and death, but thank You for reminding me in Your Word that I have nothing but victory to look forward to. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

March 4th 2019 -Holy Spirit Anointed Prayers (Part 3 of 3)

“For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” (Colossians 1:9-17)

This is another Holy Spirit prayer that can be prayed for yourself or someone else.

Again, we see that the Apostle Paul is praying that they might be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding.  God wants us to know His will.  His will is His Word. When we take time to read the Word of God, the Bible, and to read good books by strong men and women of God, we get an understanding of the mind of God.

Then, as we pray prayers like this, it opens us up to receive from the Word that we’ve read.  There are times when I read the bible and don’t get as much out of it.  Then there are times that I read it and I say, “Wow! Was that always in there?”  Sometimes this also happens as I listen the anointed teachings of His word from men and women of God.

God has set people in the church to help us learn and to help us get an understanding of the Word. However, we cannot just lean on them.  We have to take time to read the Word for ourselves as well, and ask Him to give us the understanding that we need.

So today, start praying these Holy Spirit prayers that we looked at the last three days, over yourself and others, and see what happens.  See yourself coming into a new place in God.  See yourself seeing things from the Word that you never saw before.  Remember, it all starts with a prayer and the Holy Spirit has placed these powerful prayers in the scriptures for you and for me.

“Miracles always flow in the river of the anointing.”

Prayer:

Today, I pray this Holy Spirit anointed prayer for _______________.

Heavenly Father, thank you for opening their eyes as I pray this prayer.  Thank you that they will see what is available to them in the kingdom of God. Thank you for being so incredibly passionate about us Lord. Thank you for not only your continous pursuit of me but also of ___________. I acknowledge that You, and only You are my one true God. I will never forget your sacrifice on the cross,  it is why I get to live this life I have today. I submit my life to You.  In Your precious name,  Amen.

March 3rd 2019 – Holy Spirit Anointed Prayers (Part 2 of 3)

“Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”  (Ephesians 3:14-21)

Here is the second of these Holy Spirit inspired prayers that the Apostle Paul gave us.  This is again one that we can pray for ourselves and for others.  As we pray this prayer, watch and see the Holy Spirit do a work within us and others.

In this prayer Paul is praying for a strengthening with God’s might in our spirit.  I don’t know about you but when my spirit is strong my entire being is full of strength. Paul continues on to ask that Christ might dwell in our hearts by faith and that we would get a full comprehension of the love of Christ, that we would understand the very depth of it, that we would understand how high it is and how deep it is.

If we, or anyone, would ever get a full understanding of the love and grace of God it would make a total and radical change within us. There is so much more in this prayer. These are just a couple thoughts but go ahead and pray this prayer each day for yourself and others.

“If you want to live in the fullness of God’s anointing, fill your mouth with His Word.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Today, I pray for _______________, and pray this Holy Spirit anointed prayer over them. Father, thank You for opening their eyes as I pray this prayer, that they will see what is available to them in the kingdom of God. I also ask that we would stay obedient in praying for their salvation. Lord God please open us up to sharing Your word, and how You rescued us from bondage of this world. I thank You and praise you for all that you do in my life Lord. In Jesus’ precious name. Amen.

March 2nd 2019 – Holy Spirit Anointed Prayers (Part 1 of 3)

“For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way. (Ephesians 1:15-23)

Throughout the epistles that the Apostle Paul wrote, we see some of his Holy Spirit inspired prayers. These prayers are full of the power of God and can be prayed for ourselves or for others.  We see in Ephesians 1:15-23, a powerful prayer to help us and others have open eyes to the things of the Spirit.

Paul is praying that God would give us or whoever we’re praying for, a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him.  So many times people’s eyes are closed by demonic influences and it takes real prayer to break these hindrances.  As we pray this prayer over people, we’re asking the Holy Spirit to open their eyes to the things of God.

Do you know someone who seems to be so closed to the things of God?  Pray this prayer over them as often as you can.  Thank God for opening their eyes so their understanding will be enlightened and that they might understand their place in the kingdom of God.  There is no power stronger then the Word of God and these prayers that we’re going to look at in the next few days have the breath of the Spirit upon them. Use them and see what God is going to do.

“Faith is a channel through which the anointing flows.”

Prayer:

I pray for ____________and I am going to pray this Holy Spirit anointed prayer over them.

Heavenly Father, thank you for opening their eyes as I pray this prayer, that they will see what is available to them in the kingdom of God. I pray that you enlighten their heart and that Your Holy Spirit surrounds them and engulfs their very soul. Lord God I also ask that we would stay obedient in praying for their salvation. Lord God please open us up to sharing Your word, and how You rescued us from bondage of this world. We pray this prayer in Jesus’ Holy name. Amen.

March 1st 2019 – It’s Time to Put God First

“And when he prayed, the LORD listened to him and was moved by his request. So the LORD brought Manasseh back to Jerusalem and to his kingdom. Then Manasseh finally realized that the LORD alone is God! After this Manasseh rebuilt the outer wall of the City of David, from west of the Gihon Spring in the Kidron Valley to the Fish Gate, and continuing around the hill of Ophel. He built the wall very high. And he stationed his military officers in all of the fortified towns of Judah.” (2 Chronicles 33:13-14)

Manasseh began as one of the worst kings in Israel and because of his sin, he was led into captivity. It was during that time that he finally called out to God. You see, God knows how to get our attention. It is much better to have Him speak, while we listen, write it down and begin to change. Our selfishness can lead us to be in bondage, while putting God first leads to maximum freedom.

After God graciously heard the prayers of Manasseh and forgave him, the king began thinking about the lives of others. This is what should occur after we experience Gods love. Yet, so many Christians don’t give or volunteer so other people can get saved or learn about God and the Bible. The sad news is that not only are people not hearing, but those believers are missing blessings in this world and in eternity. God desires to use us to make a difference, but we cannot have an eternal impact until we set our eyes on the one who saved us – Jesus.

“You can make a difference in your home, your workplace, your church, your community, this world and in eternity. You can… but will you?”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, I am sorry if I have not been thinking of others first. I pray that You would forgive me and give me a fresh look at the love You have for me. I know that as I think about Your grace and mercy, I will find the power to love others like You love me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Do you want to experience the kind of Peace and Love that is only found in Jesus? Jesus died on the cross for you. He loves you and wants to help you. He wants to bring peace in your life. If you have not asked Jesus to be your Lord and Savior, or need to ask him back into your life. Please click here 4 Simple Steps to Jesus

February 27th 2019 – (a•new*) our Minds to Break Free from Bondage

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is anew creation: the old has gone, the new has come!” (2 Corinthians 5:17)

* A·new əˈn(y)o͞o/ adverb literary

In anew or different, typically more positive, way. “HE had begun anew, ” once more; again.“tears filled her eyes anew” synonyms:again, afresh, another time, once more/again, over again “may we please begin anew?”

When it comes to breaking free from bondage, I have found that many people often dread the work that comes with being free…And to be honest, I completely understand!  I don’t know about you, but just hearing the phrase, “breaking free from bondage” seems strenuous and down-right uncomfortable! This is especially true for many people when it comes to the certain areas such as theese. Quitting addictions, losing weight, or even reaching a health or fitness goal.

After years of working with people, and experiencing change in many areas of my own life, I have come to find that the reason change often seems so difficult is that we are trying to make it happen backwards! The bible says, “as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” (Proverbs 23:7), this means that if you are ever going to experience freedom in any area, you are going to have to start to see yourself as free on the inside before you see it on the outside.

I have learned that lasting change in any area truly starts and takes place right in between our ears, or in our minds. We must realize that we have an enemy, the devil, and he can only attack us in one area, in our minds, and he does so with lies and deception. One of the most common lies that the enemy tries to get us trapped in is to make us think that we are, (and will always be) slaves and in bondage to things. He comes at us with this lie because he knows that as long as he can get you to believe that you are a slave to a certain habit, behavior, or thing, you will never be able to break free, which is right where he wants you to stay.

The good news is that Christ came to set us free from ALL bondage! In fact, if you are born again, the Bible says you are ALREADY free. “Whom the son has set free, is free indeed” (John 8:36).  This means that when you ask Jesus to be your Savior, that you are free from the power that sin once had over you.

I like to think of it it like a person who is in a jail cell with the door locked, and when Jesus comes along, He comes and unlocks the door, and says, “come on out, your free!” But just as we are about to step out, the devil says “wait, who told you that you could leave? You are not really free, and you never will be. You will be in bondage to this thing, habit, or lifestyle forever!” And so, the born again believer stays in the jail cell, with the door wide open, when all they needed to do was take a step out into freedom!

Taking this step into freedom does require action on our part, and it takes effort to a•new* our minds with God’s Word, and learn our identity in Christ.  The first step often requires us humbling ourselves before the Lord, and repenting of our behaviors that are not glorifying to Him, and ask for His help to change, maybe even a make public confession to people that can hold us accountable. Jesus will always be there to respond to our cry, and He is a good Father that loves and desires to take our hand and lead us into freedom.

The next step is getting into the Word of God, and asking God to a•new* our minds, and help us to see ourselves as the overcomer that He has created us to be. It also means praying specifically about the things that we desire change in on a daily (sometimes multiple times a day) basis!

This process of walking into total freedom can often happen in steps and stages, like peeling back layers on an onion. The reason for this is simply because many of us have lived in bondage to things for many years and it often takes time for our minds to be renewed, and our hearts to respond to the Lord and change. The important thing to remember however, is that God has already given you everything you need to walk in total victory and freedom in every area of your life, and the very first step is to see yourself as you truly are in Christ…totally and completely set free!

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Your word tells us that our flesh lusts and wages war against our spirit. I am not to gratify the lusts of my flesh. I will walk by the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Father, You know at times, we will struggle with the temptation to gratify the desires of our flesh. I understand that lust is saying, “I must have this at once.” Much of this battle is in my mind and thought life. Because of loneliness and inner pain at times, we may entertained lustful fantasies in our minds and thoughts. This only increased the desire for us to gratify our flesh. At times, this battle has been more than we could stand and we may have given in to the lust of our flesh. I ask You, Father, reveal to us any ways in which we have broken your moral laws. I also pray for a breakthrough in the life of who you may lead my way today. I pray for continued guidance and verbal articulation of your word. I love you Lord .. in Jesus’ name Amen.

(Please pray this prayer for Repentance and Salvation)

Father God, I am truly sorry. I repent and ask You to forgive me. I want to follow you and ask you (into) or (back into) my life. I acknowledge that Jesus Christ died on the cross for me all my sins are forgiven in His name. I repent and cancel all access to my life by evil spirits. I claim the blood of Jesus over me as my protection. I command all evil spirits that have entered my body or mind, to leave me now in Jesus’ name. I now make a new commitment to guard my eyes and take every thought captive in obedience to Christ. I will walk by the guidance of the Holy Spirit. I will work to take control of my body and anew my mind, not giving into fleshly lusts. I will depend on the Holy Spirit to help me accomplish this, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

February 21st 2019 – If Heaven Had Visiting Hours

“Therefore you too have grief now; but I will see you again, and your heart will rejoice, and no one will take your joy away from you. (John 16:22)

If Heaven had visiting hours, Today I would clear my schedule. I would leave my phone behind, along with all the other responsibilities that seem so important at times. I’d tell everyone not to worry, that I would be back soon. “I’m going to see my you, my Mom.”

I would pack a bag of things that you liked to eat, not forgetting your favorite sweet rolls. Also a some things to show you that you’ve missed since you’ve been gone.

I would make my way up to Heaven to see you for the first time since July of 2016. After reaching the entrance gates, I’d see you standing there, looking as beautiful as ever, Your eyes clear and gleaming again, no more pain or sadness hiding in them. Your smile is bigger than ever before. All signs of illness are gone. Nothing remains but the look of complete happiness.
I’d hug you tight, never wanting to let go. It’s been too long since I’ve heard you say “I love you”

We’d sit on a bench much like the one at the park in front that old car. We were at Trail Dust town where I took you the last birthday I spent with you. I’d hold your hand and rest my head on your shoulder, much like we did that day – just you and I. I’d tell you stories and Jokes to make you laugh, a sound I’ve missed more than you could ever know.

If Heaven had visiting hours, I’d tell you about it all. I’d tell you about the nights I’ve cried because I miss having you around. I’d tell you about the laughs we have somehow been able to share. Life without you hasn’t been easy, I’m sure you’ve seen it all. However, there have been ups to go along with the downs.

After catching up on all the things that’s happening at home, we could spend the rest of the afternoon doing all the things we used to do when you were still around. I would share with you that I’m still writing the Christian devotions everyday, hoping that you have been able to continue to read them in Heaven.

When the day is over and it’s time for me to go, I’d be so sad to leave you. I’d remind you how much I love you and am trying to make you proud.  I’d give you one more hug, not wanting to let go. But it would be OK, because Heaven would still have visiting hours, and I could just come back again.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, please protect us from the vicious attacks of the enemy. Give us strength and protection when we are caught in the sadness of missing the ones we love. Please heal the hearts of the ones that have lost their parents, spouses, children or any loved ones in general.
Thank You the gift of ever lasting life with You in Heaven. All we have to do is ask You into our hearts and live for you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
