My Prayer

Lord, I appreciate all that you have done, and all that has been given. Please fill me with the Holy Spirit so that I would not forget these things. I ask that you give us all the strength not to stray from the path that has been given to us. It is getting dark now; the shadows grow deeper as the light sets on this age. I ask for peace during this sadness and the tribulations we endure.

I know that I am a sinful man lord. I am humbled by the things that I have done. Please continue to help me strive toward righteousness, and treat everyone with love and respect. Please give me the determination to practice the things that you have said, and the strength to live these teachings even when met by ridicule.
In a time where our capacity for knowledge and understanding seems so vast, how is it that our moral common sense seems to be empty. How is it that we can stand with the earth shaking so violently? It is you lord that hold us upright and looking toward heaven.
My prayer is for all of those who need you lord, and all of those who don’t even know that they do. May we all find your hand in the darkness, and grab a hold of you without letting go.

  2. I just found your blog and enjoyed reading all your entries, especially "My Prayer". I resonate with your cry about vast knowledge and declining moral sense/sensitivity. Thankfully, God is sovereign and He is orchestrating these days, leading the world toward His grand finale.
