Help From On High....every breath for you

May every breath be for You. May every minute be spent for You. Help us to truly live while we live. And while we are busy in the world, as we must be for we are called to be diligent, may we sanctify the world for Your service. May we be lumps of salt in the midst of society. May our spirits and dispositions, as well as our conversations be heavenly. May there be an influence about us that will make the world better before we leave it. Lord, hear us in this thing. (Charles Sprurgeon, Prayer)

Sunday Scripture & Song

Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand. James 5:7,8

More from..."Help from On High"

Lord Jesus, now take from us everything that would hinder the closest communion with God. Any wish or desire that might hamper us in prayer, please remove it, Lord. Any memory of sorrow or care that might hinder the fixing of our affection wholly on our God, take it away now. What do we have to do with idols any more? You have seen and observed us, You know where the difficulty lies. Help us against it, and may we now come boldly, not into the Holy Place only, but into the Holiest of All, where we would not dare come if our great Lord had not rent the veil, sprinkled the mercy seat with His blood and invited us to enter. (Charles Spurgeon, Prayer)

Help From On High...continued

Father, come and give rest to Your children. Take the helmet from our brow. Remove from us the weight of our heavy armor for a while. May we have perfect peace and be at rest. Oh, help us now, we pray. As You have already washed Your people in the fountain filled with blood and they are clean, now wash us from defilement in the water. With the basin and the pitcher, O Master, wash our feet again. Your cleansing will greatly refresh us. It will prepare us for innermost fellowship with You. For this reason, the priests washed themselves before they went into the Holy Place. (Charles Spurgeon, Prayer)

Help from on High

But now, O Lord, we desire to find You. Our longing is to feel Your presence, and it is heavenly that You are there. The sick bed is soft when You are there. The furnace of affliction grows cool when You are there. The house of prayer when You are present is none other than the house of God, the very gate of heaven. Come near, our Father, to Your children. Some of us are very weak in body and faint in heart. Soon, God, lay Your right hand on us and say, Fear not." Perhaps the world is attracting some of us. Come near to kill the influence of the world with Your superior power. Even to worship may not seem easy to some. The Dragon seems to pursue them, and the floods out of his mouth wash away their devotion. Give them great wings like those of an eagle, so that each may fly away into the place prepared for him and rest in the presence of God today. (Charles Spurgeon, Prayer)

Bringing it Back to Life...

Although in dire need of attention, 
suffering from neglect, 
this blog still stands. 
A reminder that all things
great or small when done
in the name of God...
will not die

but will rise....and soar once again..
