Prayer Request: Joshua

Please pray for the salvation of my grandma and aunt!!

Lee Duigon

We’re getting a lot of prayer requests this weekend. Well, prayer is one of our purposes here.

Please, everybody, join in prayer for Joshua’s grandmother and aunt in Japan, who have heard the Gospel but not as yet been called: Father in Heaven, open their hearts that they may hear. We want our loved ones with us in your kingdom; we want them all to know the joy of Jesus Christ Our Lord, that they may be saved by him. We all have people that we love who have not yet come to Jesus. Bring them, O Lord our God: in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Forgiving Because of Christ

From SlimJim’s blog, The Domain For Truth, about forgiving…

The Domain for Truth

Forgiving is hard.  An English poet (Alexander Pope) once said “To err is human, to forgive divine.”  Certainly by our own power and in our flesh alone it is very hard to forgive.

I don’t listen to country.  But I found this song after listening to hymns on Youtube.  The song is called “The Preacher And The Stranger.”

Here are the lyrics:

By Request, ‘I am the God that Healeth Thee’

Amen!

Lee Duigon

Requested by Erlene–I am the God that Healeth Thee, by Don Moen.

We cannot count the people who were healed by Our Savior Jesus Christ, healed of every conceivable disease, while He was present in the flesh, on earth: and those healings were the evidence that God Himself had sent Him. They bore witness that He was the Son of God.

God has promised that when He restores His creation, in the fullness of time, sin and death will be cast out. There will be no need for any more healings, because we will all be whole, forever.

But in the meantime, all healing still comes from Him and we are instructed to pray for our loved ones, or for ourselves, when we need healing. God knows that we are weak; but He is strong. We pray in hope.

Mary Magdalene, on Easter Morning

From Lee Duigon’s blog. Something very important to think about all year round.

Lee Duigon

Try to imagine that morning.

The Passover is finished. It’s the day after the Sabbath, very, very early in the morning. Jerusalem is quiet, seeming almost eerily quiet after all the recent uproar.

Mary, from the town of Magdala, has followed Jesus Christ everywhere. She has seen him crucified, taken down, dead, from the cross, and placed in a tomb. She is numb with grief. Almost automatically, she proceeds to the tomb–donated by Joseph of Arimathea–to minister to Jesus’ body. That work could not have been done yesterday, on the Sabbath. There are wounds to wash, spices to apply.The Bible says two other women came with her to do this.

Try to imagine this: the Sanhedrin put a guard at the tomb, claiming they didn’t want Jesus’ followers to steal the body and then claim He was risen. But when Mary and the others arrive, in the grey dawn, the…

An Easter Prayer

Christ the Lord rose from the dead three days after He died on the cross for the sins of His chosen people. This is a prayer by Lee Duigon for this Easter Sunday.

This is Christ Pantokrator, “Christ the Ruler of All,” as portrayed in an ancient church in Sicily. Today on Easter Sunday we celebrate His resurrection from the dead.

Or Lord our God, and Father of All: grant this Easter day of 2019 power to work all throughout the year, every day, to draw our hearts to Jesus Christ–by whose blood we are saved, by whose wounds we are healed; Jesus Christ, our rightful King and only Savior.

Do as thou has said, O Lord! Make His enemies His footstool, put all things under Him, make all things new and wash away all tears: we pray for the restitution of all things, under the Lordship of Jesus Christ the King of kings. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
