The Battle is The Lords

Recently heard a sermon about Joshua fighting in a battle against Amalek. How God helped Joshua win the battle, through the help of Moses.  As long as Moses held up his hand, Joshua and his people prevailed, but if Moses lowered his hand, then Amalek prevailed.  By the help of Aaron and Hur, Moses was able to keep his hand up by propping it up with a stone.  See the Lord let them know that it was not them or their strength, but the Lord’s strength that they won the battle.

Exodus 17:8-13 says: Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim. And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek: to morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in mine hand. So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill. And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. But Moses hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.

This shows me that we can win any battle as long as God is helping us.  We should never forget who is helping us, though.  We should never think that we are doing anything in this life through our own strenth, but through the Lord’s strength.  He has helped me so much lately.  He has helped me overcome a lot of battles, but he has reminded me that it is him who is doing it.  It isn’t anything that I could do without him.  See God knows our thoughts.  He knows if we do not show him the honor.  He deserves all the honor, glory and thanks.

Lately I have heard about how God has protected Israel and its soldiers through the battles that have been participating in. The media has been silent.  I am amazed at how God has protected them; he helped them by sending a storm to separate their enemies from them.  He sent a strong wind to knock down missles from hitting Israel.  He loves Israel and his divine intervention has prevailed on numerous occassions.  See God protects the Jewish men from danger.  See related article post by clicking this link: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/79560/biblical-pillar-cloud-appears-golan-proving-hand-god-protects-israel-isis/#Yug6kxDpyCdgCbCF.97

Another passage about God’s protection and divine intervention in Exodus 14:13-30, it tells us that God interceded in the battle. Exodus 14 reads: And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace. And the Lord said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward: But lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea. And I, behold, I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they shall follow them: and I will get me honour upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host, upon his chariots, and upon his horsemen. And the Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord, when I have gotten me honour upon Pharaoh, upon his chariots, and upon his horsemen. And the angel of God, which went before the camp of Israel, removed and went behind them; and the pillar of the cloud went from before their face, and stood behind them: And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it gave light by night to these: so that the one came not near the other all the night. And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided. And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left. And the Egyptians pursued, and went in after them to the midst of the sea, even all Pharaoh’s horses, his chariots, and his horsemen. And it came to pass, that in the morning watch the Lord looked unto the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of the cloud, and troubled the host of the Egyptians, And took off their chariot wheels, that they drave them heavily: so that the Egyptians said, Let us flee from the face of Israel; for the Lord fighteth for them against the Egyptians. And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the sea, that the waters may come again upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen. And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the Lord overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea. And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them. But the children of Israel walked upon dry land in the midst of the sea; and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left. Thus the Lord saved Israel that day out of the hand of the Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the sea shore.

What is Heaven Like

Godly Witnesses For Christ

heavengateAs I laid on my bed and thought what Heaven would be like, so many things came to mind.  I like the thought that I will never have to worry about anything. I will not have to worry about time.  Time dictates a lot of how we interact here on this earth.  Time can make someone sad if they hate getting up out of bed in the morning.  Time can cause someone to have an accident if they are rushing to work.  Time causes worry, stress and uneasiness. We know there will be a time when Jesus returns and this makes some anxious, some sad, some eager, some happy and some excited.

Then I thought about not ever having to worry about money. I will not have to worry about paying my bills or working because I won’t need money.  God will provide everything from a mansion to food.  I know…

A Mighty God We Serve

218

So many things have happened lately that prove how great and mighty a God we serve. God has been working more mightily in these last days and trying to get people’s attention.  Sometimes thing happen that we don’t understand and we question, “Why?”  Let me tell you that God knows what is going on and he is in control of everything, even when the time looks grim.  I went through a terrible time in my life a year ago and I questioned, “Why?”  I still don’t fully understand why it happened to me.  I thought I was on the mountain top and nothing could bring me down.  That is when everything went against me.  Satan through dart after dart at me and it took me a long time to get back to where I was before with God.  Then recently I had the chance to talk to this lady at work.  I had ask that morning for God to open a door for me to talk to someone that day. Usually everything is so fast speed at work, that we barely have time to breathe.  God allowed this lady to work in my office that day, and another Christian lady was there too.  That is when I shared my testimony with her.  Bear in mind, that I don’t share it often because it is a time I usually don’t like to remember.  It is one of the worst times in my life, but I was compelled to share it.  After giving this lady my testimony, she confided in me that she was going through something similar and then I knew.  I knew without a doubt that God had set the stage for me to talk with her.  I did’t know why I was compelled to tell her my story.  But I did.  I went home feeling honored that God had allowed me to witness to someone that day and I felt like God had shared with me, Why I went through that terrible ordeal.

God allows his people some great opportunities to share the gospel with others.  Sometimes he takes us through trials so we can help others who will face the same trial.  See God was able to not only set the stage a year ago, but God provided a way for me to talk to this lady.  He provided a quiet time and even provided a Christian lady in the room where she could share the truth also.  You may think this is something minor but God speaks to us in so many different ways.  He might speak through others or just through our circumstances.

A terrible event happened in Gatlinburg, TN a few days ago.  A terrible fire swept through the beautiful Smokey Mountain National Park and burned many houses, buisnesses and trees. Bear, deer and other types of wild animals lost their homes. Many were devastated that this beautiful place was burned. Some people were killed when they couldn’t get away from the raging fires.  Tourist visit this place year round to enjoy the scenery and smell the frest air, including me.  Through this all, God allowed one page from a burned Bible to be left, where someone was able to find it.  It read from Joel Chapter 1:  Alas for the day! for the day of the Lord is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come.  The seed is rotten under their clods, the garners are laid desolate, the barns are broken down; for the corn is withered. How do the beasts groan! the herds of cattle are perplexed, because they have no pasture; yea, the flocks of sheep are made desolate. O Lord, to thee will I cry: for the fire hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness, and the flame hath burned all the trees of the field. The beasts of the field cry also unto thee: for the rivers of waters are dried up, and the fire hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness.

Some may say this page was left by chance.  I believe God is working mightily in these last days to say that he is coming soon.  That the day of the Lord is at hand and we better get our affairs in order.  Repent and turn from our sins and turn toward the living God.  If you don’t know the Lord Jesus, I ask you now to pray and ask him into your life, before it is too late.  He is our only hope in having eternal life.  He is the son of the most high and we must believe on him to enter Heaven.  He can cleanse you of all your sins. He died on a cross for the sins of the whole world.  John 3:16 says: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosover believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.  Here is other post that can teach you about who Jesus is.

Preaching of the Cross

cross9

The closer we get to the Lord’s return, the more and more that false prophets are going to arise. My son called tonight and spoke how someone had come to his door today that wanted to speak with him. Jamie looked at their dress and assumed it was someone from church or someone coming to invite him to church.  Well it was someone from a church but not the true church of God.  How do I know, you may ask. Well they started off telling my son about two Gods.  One female and one male.  My son is a Christian! He is in the military and he has run into all sorts of people.  He doesn’t realize you can’t be friends with the world.  You must chose a side.  Yes, you can be nice to people, but when they contradict the truth of God’s word, it is time to show them the door.

He went on to tell me how he tried to talk with them,  and how strong his faith is and so on and so on.  The Bible tells us not to give them “God speed”! 2 John 1:10 says: If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed!  That means don’t even listen to them or give them your attention.  I went on to tell my son that our adversary, Satan is walking around seeking whom he may devour.  He knows all about us.  He knows what our strong points are and he knows what our weaknesses are.  He knows where he can deceive you, if you allow him to.  So don’t even allow him into your house or in your thoughts.

We need to keep our minds and thoughts on the true gospel.  The gospel that teaches us about Jesus Christ and what he suffered for us on the cross.  1 Corinthians 1:18, 23-31 tells us: For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence. But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

Are You Like a Pharisee?

pharisee

You might wonder what exactly is a Pharisee!  A Pharisees is a Jewish group mentioned ninety-eight times in the New Testament, all but ten times in the Gospels. From whom did the Pharisees separate? From those, especially priests or clerics, who interpreted the Law differently than they? From the common people of the land (John 7:49)? All these groups of people the Pharisees would have been determined to avoid or to separate themselves from any type of impurity prescribed by the levitical law or, more specifically, their strict interpretation of it. The Pharisees were rivals of the Sadducees but managed to set aside their differences on one occasion—the trial of Christ. It was at this point that the Sadducees and Pharisees united to put Christ to death (Mark 14:53; 15:1; John 11:48-50). Both the Pharisees and the Sadducees earned numerous rebukes from Jesus. Perhaps the best lesson we can learn from the Pharisees is to not be like them. Unlike the Pharisees, we are not to treat traditions as having equal authority as Scripture, and we are not to allow our relationship with God to be reduced to a legalistic list of rules and rituals.
Jesus called the Pharisees a generation of vipers. They were self righteous, judged others, and full of hypocrisy. Matthew 5:20 says: For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Luke 18:9-14 said: And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

We as Christians shouldn’t allow ourselves to become as a Pharisee and say that we are perfect and without sin.  We are all sinners under the grace of God.  Many look to other people’s fault and say: At least I’m not like him or her.  They are wicked people and don’t deserve forgiveness.  Let me tell you that Jesus Christ died for all mankind.  It doesn’t matter if they are black and white, rich or poor, American, Chinese, Muslim or Russian.  What matters is that all can come to the grace of God through repentance and acceptance of Jesus Christ into our hearts and lives.  That means surrendering to him wholly.  If you never accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior, it is not too late.  You can turn to him and he will forgive any sin you ever have done: including murder, child abuse, theft, slander, sorcery or witchcraft, etc….  I know that Jesus will forgive any sin if you come to him with a humbe heart and ask him to be your Savior and you will be welcomed with open arms into his family.  One day you will receive eternal life with God above.

Labourers for the Lord’s Harvest

Image result for laborers of the harvest

Anyone keeping up with the news knows that the Lord’s return is drawing closer. I urge you to take a look around you, and see if there is someone that doesn’t know the Lord Jesus.  Perhaps there is that coworker that you have been wanting to share the gospel with, but you are afraid to tell them about Jesus, or you fear what they may say or do.  I know how hard it is to share the gospel with others that you have been around for a while, but have never had the chance to share the good news of Jesus Christ with.  I struggle too! But, we must press on.  We must get about doing our Father’s business.  We need to get busy sharing Jesus with others because one day things will change.  We might not have that opportunity again.  The Lord could come and take his people home to be with him.  Or, something could happen to that person that you need to witness to.  I want to encourage you to step out of that comfort zone and take that step; allow the Lord to help you and show you the way.  Pray and ask for his guidance and direction.  Pray for his words to speak through you.  He can and he is able.  Just take the first step and allow Jesus to lead you!

Matthew 9:35-38 tells us:  Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd. Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.
Luke 10:1-11 says: After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come. Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest. Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves. Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way. And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house. And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again. And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house. And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you: And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you. But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say, Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

If you are that one that doesn’t know Jesus Christ, I urge you to pray and ask him into your life and heart.  He can restore you and give you peace.  He will forgive you of your sins if you would only believe on him.  He is the son of God and he is life.  All those that call upon the name of Jesus shall be saved.

The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth

Image result for inherit the world

Believe me or not, there is coming a day when the Lord will return to this earth. The Lord says: A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh.  And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statues, and ye shall keep my judgements, and do them.  And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to  your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God (Ezekel 36:26-28).  Psalm 33:12-Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. Psalm 37:11,18-But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace. The Lord knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever. Matthew 5:5 says:- Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. Matthew 25:34- Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: Psalm 37:29- The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever. 1 Peter 1:3-5 says:- Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

But the unbelieving will not inherit the earth.  Psalm 53:1 says: The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.  Galatians 5:19-21 says: –Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

Now is the time to repent of your sins and turn toward Jesus.  He can save you and give you a new life; he can give you a new heart. Ask his forgiveness while there is still time.

Show Me How to Love

The Writing Entrepreneur

PHOTO: Singers Rory Lee Feek and Joey Martin Feek arrive at the 48th Annual Academy Of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada, April 7, 2013.

Today I asked God to show me how he loves. Today he showed me a video testimony about the love between two people, when I seen the love between Joey and Rory Feek. Then he showed me a forgiving love when a man forgave someone that had shot his wife and he asked prayers for his family. Then God showed me a compassionate love, when a man taught his son to show compassion to someone even though they might be slow to learn. Then God showed me a sacrificial love when he showed me what Christ did for us. John 3:16-16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

See God showed me how to love by example.  When I look at the love story of Joey and Rory Feek, it breaks my…

Lessons of the Prodigal Son

son55

Luke 15:11-32-Teaches us about a Father who had two sons. He divided his living among the two.  The younger takes the money and waste it with riotous living. The Other one stays home and continues to live with his Father.

One was considered the Prodigal Son.

  1.  He left home and lived the high life.
  2. He waste all his money and is left with nothing.
  3. He began to be in want; there is a famine in the land; he becomes hungry.
  4. He tries to make it on his own, without the help of the Father but has run out of money.
  5. First he serves the world and another man; he feeds his swine.
  6. Finally he realizes he cannot do it on his own; he needs his Fathers help.
  7. He came to himself and realizes that he had it good with his Father.
  8. He realizes he is living a life with nothing and even the servants of his Father has it better than him.
  9. He repents and turns to his Father for forgiveness.
  10. He is willing to work as a servant than as a son.

The Father

  1. He divides his living with his two sons.
  2. He misses his son, but allows him to leave home.
  3. He doesn’t go after the son but allows him to make mistakes.
  4. When he was a great way off; the Father ran to his son and kissed him.
  5. He welcomes his son with open arms, not judgment.
  6. He gives his son the best robe and a ring, and shoes for his feet.
  7. He kills the fatted calf and they celebrate the son’s return.

The older son that stays home

  1. He becomes angry because his Father celebrates his brothers return.
  2. He is jealous of his brother getting attention.
  3. He has pride in his heart and says that he is a better son because he stayed home and served him more than the other son.
  4. He thinks he deserves more than the first son because he never transgressed against the Father.
  5. He believes he should be greater because he served the Father longer.

Summary:  The Prodigal son left home and endured some trials and tribulations.  He suffered things such as hunger and hard labor. His father didn’t go after him but allowed him to make mistakes; the son returned a better son, because he realized how great he had it with the Father, he was wiser, thankful, and more humble; willing to be a servant, than a son. The other son thought he was a greater servant and son because he never made mistakes, but the Father loved them both.  Luke 15:24 says: For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost and is found.  Our Holy Father cares about each one of us, like this Father did.  He didn’t quit loving one son, because he made mistakes.  He rejoiced over his son’s return. He had compassion on his son; he saw his son coming back and welcomed him with open arms. Luke 15:7 says:  I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.

Prayer Changes Things

Image result for man on ventilator

If you are a Child of God, then he hears your prayers. Don’t think something is too big or too small for God to take care of.  Recently I prayed for something. I really didn’t know if God would help me with it or not. In a way it was a small thing but to me it was much needed.  As the day went on, the prayer was answered and I was amazed.  It feels good to know that God hears you and he will answer even the smallest things, but he is able to handle so much more if we would only ask him to.

I have written about this before but it was a big miracle to me, and that is why I bring it up again.  One day my dad had fallen and broken his hip.  The next morning they performed surgery and when he awoke from surgery he couldn’t breathe well.  We assumed it had something to do with the anethesia.  They eventually transferred him to a bigger hospital but it didn’t help.  He still couldn’t breathe good.  He eventually had to be put on a ventilator which did his breathing for him.  After a couple of months, his organs began to shut down.  He had to have dialysis, his lung compacity went way down.  Doctors gave us the bad news that he would not live too much longer.  They decided to move him out to the floor, so we could spend his last days with him.  At times he were a Bipap, which pushed air into him, so he could breathe.

Our whole family was praying for him.  We had asked prayer from several churches and other Christians we knew.  We were so tired.  We were working then going to the hospital until bedtime, and was barely able to rest much, or spend time with our familes at home.  Then one day, we noticed his heart rate suddenly drop.  80, 70, 60, 50, 40.  That is when we went to the hospital hallway and screamed for help.  The nurses came in and said nothing was wrong, until we said, Look at him. They realized that he wasn’t breathing at all and his pulse was dropping.  They made us leave the room and pulled the crash cart in the room.  Suddenly they pulled him out in the hallway using a Bambu bag to breathe for him as they were doing CPR, on the way to the ICU unit.

The nurses asked my mother if they should let him die.  They had already given up on him.  The doctors had already given up on him.  We were all crying.  My mother said, I don’t know.  I suggested she wait until morning to make any decisions, and that she should put him back on the ventilator for the night.  That way she could pray about it; about letting him go.  We were so heart broken and grief stricken.  That is when the nurses ran out and told us that my dad had a large mucus plug blocking his airway and it came flying out when they  put the tube down his throat to intubate him. The nurse said, He’s going to be okay.   At that moment I knew he would be okay.  I knew God had answered our prayer.  See God was in control and he healed him.  And Dad was okay.  I know I will never forget that day, ever.

Another time God healed me from Pneumonia, after I had it for over two months.  I couldn’t breathe well at all.  I had the elders of the church pray over me and within a couple of days, I was healed.  God is able and he can heal.  He can answer any prayer.  He can help you with anything that you need, but he is waiting on you to ask him.

Some reasons to pray are:

  1. Pray about all your needs or troubles.
  2. Pray for fellowship with your Father.
  3. Pray to show  honor to God. Praise the Lord.
  4. Pray to God because you are thankful for what Christ did on the cross for you and for mankind.
  5. Pray for the needs of others.
  6. Pray for guidance- such as you need an answer to a question
  7. Pray for Leadership- you want God to direct your path
  8. Pray for Understanding- so you will understand the scriptures better.
  9. Pray for Peace in your life.
  10. Pray for healing
  11. 11. Pray for forgiveness
Related scriptures:
Acts 10;4-And when he looked on him, he was afraid, and said, What is it, Lord? And he said unto him, Thy prayers and thine alms are come up for a memorial before God.
Romans 15:30-Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ’s sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in your prayers to God for me;
1 Timothy 5:5-Now she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, trusteth in God, and continueth in supplications and prayers night and day
1 Peter 3:12-For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.
