I’m typing this on Sunday morning, for publication Wednesday morning, when I expect to be doing more Christmas shopping.

This is a prayer, for this Christmas and every Christmas. Please join in.

O Lord our God! Bless this Christmas of 2019, and give it power to work day in, day out, day and night, and every day of 2020. Give it speech that all might hear. Give it the power to draw our hearts to Jesus Christ your Son, our Savior and our rightful King: give it the power to make us strong in His service, strong in His love. And may it move us to love one another, as Our Lord Himself commands.

All year long, O God! Bless this Christmas all year long. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Prayer Request for the People of Japan

A big typhoon is coming.

This typhoon, Japan’s nineteenth typhoon of the year, is predicted to hit the eastern part (most of Honshu) of Japan sometime on the 12th, Sat. or 13th, Sun. The typhoons that have previously come have caused enough trouble already: landslides, houses losing their roofs, etc. The speed of this new typhoon is 50 meters per second. This typhoon has the same strength as the typhoon that caused 1,200 casualties a couple of years ago. Please pray for Japan, especially for God’s people, that the damage won’t be too severe and that there won’t be too many casualties. Please pray that God will use this typhoon to make His people rethink their ways and come back to God and ask for His forgiveness. The salvation of God’s elect is the most important thing. Since all is in God’s hands, it’s not really something to worry about, but I’ll really appreciate your prayers.

1 Peter 5:7 – “Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you.”

Happy Father’s Day!! 😉💚

TO MY FATHER, AND TO ALL THE FATHERS IN THE WORLD…

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!!!

Dear Heavenly Father,

I thank you for giving me and my brother a kind and gentle father, who takes care of us lovingly. Help us, LORD, to become like our father, hard-working, strong in the faith, living each day in your sight. I ask this in Jesus’ most precious name, Amen!

(For June 16th, 2019)

I’m hurrying to get this posted before Joshua goes to bed. I don’t know what time it is in Japan, but it’s either very late or very early. Oh, well, he can see it when he gets up again: Blessed Assurance, sung by Alan Jackson.

And on top of it, we’ve got some good news–an answered prayer.

On May 5 Joshua asked us to pray for his grandmother and aunt in Japan, who had heard of the Gospel but not yet received it. Today Joshua reports that both are now reading the Gospel of John–and may the Holy Spirit speak to them! In Jesus’ name, Amen.

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.

Happy Mother’s Day! 💛😊

I ought to have posted this on real Mother’s Day, but as the saying goes, better late than never! 😊

I want to thank God for my mother.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you, Lord, for giving my brother and me a kind and loving mother, who loves us and takes care of us. Thank you for giving her to Dad to be his sweet and faithful wife. Please continue to bless her with many blessings for the rest of her life! In Jesus’ name, Amen!!

I’d like to post Mom’s favorite hymn, For the Beauty of the Earth.

To my mother, and to all the mothers in the world,

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!!

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.

Praying For New Zealand

Please pray for New Zealand.

From Ryan Callahan’s blog.

Christchurch New Zealand Christchurch, New Zealand

The world received terrible news out of Christchurch, New Zealand today.  There has been more violence against people of faith and the families and the country need our prayers.  Christchurch is normally a peaceful and idyllic place to live and vacation.  It is a sobering reminder that this hatred and evil can appear anywhere.  I lift these families up to the Lord and I ask Him to bring healing and spread revival through this fallen world.

I have several Muslims that follow my blog.  I want you to know that I hurt with you and my heart and prayers are with the families who are suffering such pain and anguish.  Just like all the victims of these mass shootings, they did not deserve this.  I am a Christian and an American and this violence grieves my heart.

This violence comes from the evil one.  It doesn’t matter…
