1 Timothy 1:15-17

September 15, 2013

This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief. (1 Timothy 1:15)
      Jesus, thank you that you were willing to give up the glory of heaven to come into our sinful world and into our sinful hearts to save us.

However, for this reason I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show all longsuffering, as a pattern to those who are going to believe on Him for everlasting life. (1 Timothy 1:16)
      Jesus, thank you for your mercy to me and to everyone who turns to you. Thank you for your faithfulness and longsuffering love in sticking with us even when we fail time and time again.

Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen. (1 Timothy 1:17)
      Holy Trinity, One God, help us bring you honor and glory, and worship you as we ought. Thank you for your enduring kindness to us.

A word received: Every thanksgiving for what I have done and am doing is precious to me.

+a199 Linden (young West Indian man) — He had been standing there waiting while we prayed for others. When he sat down there was that nudge from God so I asked if he had ever given his life to Christ and he said, “No.” I asked him if he had ever thought about doing that and he said, “Yes.” I asked him if he would like to do it now and he said, “Yes.” So, we led him to invite Jesus into his heart and accept Jesus as Lord and Savior. He confessed his sins to God and accepted God’s forgiveness. Big smile on his face at the end.

Honduras–all flesh

Acts 2:17a
And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh.

Our Father in heaven,
We stand in agreement with Your Holy Word spoken. You shall pour out Your Spirit on all flesh in Honduras.
All flesh! All flesh! All flesh! You shall pour out Your Spirit on all flesh in this land. Amen.

Praise God! Kattey released.

September 15, 2013

I had just posted a prayer and then received this report from Leadership.

The kidnapped Dean, Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Most Rev. Ignatius Kattey has been released by his kidnappers.

Our God is an awesome God! Praise God!

Archbishop Ignatius Kattey

September 15, 2013

Genesis 21:17-19 (NIV)
God heard the boy crying, and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven and said to her, “What is the matter, Hagar? Do not be afraid; God has heard the boy crying as he lies there. Lift the boy up and take him by the hand, for I will make him into a great nation.”

Then God opened her eyes and she saw a well of water. So she went and filled the skin with water and gave the boy a drink.

Father God, Archbisop Kattey is in a spiritually dry land. Open his eyes that he may see the hidden wells You have provided for him. May he be like Hagar’s flask and carry living water to his captors. Amen.

Luke 24:30-31 (NIV)
When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight.

Christ Jesus, You are the bread of life, and Your body has been pierced for the transgressions of Archbishop Kattey and his captors and crushed for their iniquities.
You instructed us to ask and it would be given; seek and we would find; knock and the door would be opened. We humbly ask You to open their eyes to supernatural dimensions that they may behold who You are and open the door to their freedom. Amen.
