A Prayer for Love and Harmony in the World

Dear Lord,

in this world where strife and conflict between brothers is the norm,

teach us how to truly love one another,

and cast out all fear and hate.

In place of ignorance and superstition, help us to value our differences and

learn to listen to perspectives that are different from our own.

Teach us to stand with those who are downtrodden and oppressed,

and fearlessly advocate for the rights of all people.

Teach us how to love and welcome the stranger,

to build bridges and tear down walls.

Help us to fully embrace all that is comprehended in your holy command,

"You shall love your neighbor as yourself." Amen.

Heaven's Laundromat

Have you used Heaven's Laundromat to clean up your life?

Bring your soiled laundry (aka your filthy rags) to Jesus, Who alone can save you and make you totally clean. He will wash away your sins by his blood and clothe you in his righteous white garments, garments that are white as Snow.  By depending on Him and trusting in his grace alone through faith, you will Gain strength of character to resist masterful temptations to roll with the Tide.  Keep the Purex-ample of Christ as your focus as you Surf through the stormy tests that will surely come to try you.  If you falter, don't fret.  Keep the faith, be of good Cheer; you will Bounce back from your Down-y season and emerge victorious over every evil snare.  Just stand still and watch the Lord go to work on your behalf.  Watch Him bare his right Arm and Hammer down every plot of the adversary against you.  He is your All in All!  His love for you is Xtra-ordinary!

God bless you and be with you.

Daily Devotional March 6, 2017 Praise God!I will mention the lovingkindnesses of the Lord, and the praises of the Lord, according to all that the Lord hath bestowed on us, and the great goodness toward the house of Israel. Isa. 63:7. When a sense of the loving-kindness of God is constantly refreshing the soul, it will be revealed in the countenance by an expression of peace and joy. It will be manifest in the words and works. And the generous, holy Spirit of Christ, working upon the heart, will yield in the life a converting influenc…
