Hebrews 13:1-6

September 1, 2013

Let brotherly love continue. (Hebrews 13:1)
      Jesus, please help us have fellowship with one another in your Spirit.

Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels. (Hebrews 13:2)
      Holy Spirit, move our hearts to receive people, known and unknown, into our homes.

Remember the prisoners as if chained with them–those who are mistreated–since you yourselves are in the body also. (Hebrews 13:3)
      Father, we remember before you your suffering church and those who will be martyred today for their faith in Jesus.

Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge. (Hebrews 13:4)
      Holy Spirit, guide your people in what they choose to watch on TV and the internet.

Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For he himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5)
      Father, help us daily look to you for our bread and provision.

So we may boldly say: “The LORD is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?” (Hebrews 13:6)
      Thank you, Jesus, for all that you have done for me and my family.

      Notes from the Front Line

***** Book Recommendation from a friend [which I concur with, Torre] I just finished an AWESOME book on the persecuted church and the power of prayer. It’s a novel called Safely Home, by Randy Alcorn. I very very highly recommend it!!!

Honduras–judiciary

September 1, 2013

Adapted from a prayer by Rev. George F. Woodliff III.

Father in heaven,
You have created a world of beauty and order. You have given Your people Your holy law by which to live. You have raised up particular men and women to be judges of Your people. You have sent Your Son to be our Advocate and, on the Last Day, to be our Judge.
We ask Your blessing on the judges of Honduras. We thank You for their willingness to serve their community in this critical role. We ask now that You will grant unto them all of the gifts they will need to fulfill their duty. We ask that You give them the fidelity to the law possessed by Moses, the wisdom of Solomon, the courage of Deborah and Gideon, the righteousness of Samuel, and the heart of David. We ask that You protect them and their families from all harm. We pray that all of their judgments will be honest and true. We ask in the name of Jesus, our Advocate and Judge. Amen.
