Beloved,I was reminded of one of my most favorite prayer affirmations after I went to see the movie The Letters. This prayer remains posted in my first study bible and has been there for well over 27 years ago. It prompted me to ask the Lord to give me all those nobody else wants. If you’ve ever been rejected you wouldn’t have to ask why. If you have ever been burdened with a call you wouldn’t ever ask why. If you’ve never personally dealt with either, you may question. However we live in a world right outside of our doors where there is a need for soldiers of Abba God. This Holiday Season if each one would reach one by prayer and action, our world would be a more pleasantly powerful place to live. As we seek the Lord on behalf of ourselves and others let us do so unceasingly. The power of prayer can change things, our actions behind the prayer offered in faith is proof that faith without works is dead!
God Bless You,
Apostle Brenda D. Cooper
Prayer of St. Francis of Asisi
Lord make me an instrument of Thy peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love. Where there is injury, pardon. Where there is doubt, faith. Where there is despair, hope. Where there is darkness, light. Where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master; grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; love as to love; for it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
Amen and Amen!
