Lord Almighty, I come through the Name of Your Son Jesus to thank You for the privilege of being able to come to Your mighty throne of grace and be comforted. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort” 2 Corinthians 1:3.

Lord, You are the God of all comfort and You alone give us reassurance in difficult situations. In the time of need, remind me of Matthew 11:28-29, “come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give You rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”

Lord, lead me to paths of righteousness in my time of need. Lead me to Scriptures, music and fellowship opportunities that exalt Your Name and encourage me to live for You. Teach me to draw comfort from You. And finally, enable me to share that same comfort You have given me with those You have put in my own realm of influence, such as my friends, children, and grandchildren. “[God], who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.2 Corinthians 1:4.

It is in the precious Name of Jesus I come, Amen.

New Tab Added- Memorizing Scripture

IMG_0841In our Christian walk with God, in addition to prayer and Bible study, it is important to have Scripture in our mind, ready to use in any situation that may arise. For this reason, we have added a new tab on our blog called Memorizing Scripture. We invite you to look at the information we have put together and use it in any way that would be helpful for you. Click here to visit the new tab.

God’s Gift to Mankind

We have had many new followers since the start of our blog. Therefore, we are posting the plan of salvation again. The prayer of salvation is the first step required to having God hear all other prayers.

______________________

Welcome to the “Salvation” page. The decision you make about the following information is the most important decision you will ever make in your life.

The Bible tells us:

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23

Fortunately for us, God has provided the answer to our sin:

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”‘ John 14:6

By sending His Son, Jesus, to die on the cross, God has provided a way for us to have a relationship with Him. A relationship with God is our only way off the path of destruction and onto the path of righteousness that leads to Heaven. This relationship allows us to have the joy of the Lord in our hearts in this life “…for the joy of the LORD is your strength” Nehemiah 8:10.

In order to receive God’s grace, You must do what He instructs in Acts 16:31 “So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved…”

If you desire to become a child of God, pray a prayer similar to this one with faith in the truth of what God’s Word teaches about salvation:

Lord Jesus, I invite You to come into my heart. I recognize that I am a sinner, incapable of saving myself. I believe that You died on the cross for my sins and rose again. I choose now to follow and obey You as the Lord of my life and to turn away from my sin. I place my trust in You as my only Savior and my only way to salvation and I ask You to forgive me of my sins. Thank you, Jesus, for coming into my life and making me new. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.” John 1:12

“He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.” 1 John 5:12-13

According to God’s Word, you are now a Christian and a believer. To grow as God’s child, start by reading the Bible (begin with the book of John). Develop your personal prayer life and seek out fellowship with other believers in a Bible-teaching church.

May the Lord bless you as you go forward in your walk with Him.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”  2 Corinthians 5:17
