Prayer & Life In The Spirit

cid_000701c7daae654c91b06501a8c0df2fhr21.jpg

    Gal. V 22 ,23    The fruit of the Spirit is Love , Joy , Peace , Longsuffering , Gentleness , Goodness , Faith , Meekness , Temperance ,  and V25- If we live in the spirit, let us also walk in the spirit. Psalms 119 : V 105 says Thy word is a lamp unto my feet , and a light unto my path.

    Prayer has been in my thoughts lately because of the number of requests that I read in other blogs !

How many of us Live the Way You Pray ?

   I knelt to pray when the Day was done,

   And prayed: “Oh Lord, bless everyone;

   Lift from each saddened heart the pain,

   And let the sick be well again.”

   And then I awoke another day,

   And carelessly went on my way.

  

   The whole day long I did not try

   To wipe a tear from any eye;

   I did not try to share the load

   Of any brother on the road;

   I did not even go to see

   The sick man just next door to me .

   Yet once again when day was done,

   I prayed ” Oh Lord bless everyone.”

   But as I prayed, into my ear

   There came a voice that whispered clear,

   “Pause, Hypocrite, before you pray;

   Whom have you tried to bless today ?

  

   “Gods sweetest blessings always go

   Bye hands that serve him here below.”

   And then I hid my face and cried,

   “Forgive me, GOD, for I have lied;

  Let me but live another day,

   And I will live the way I pray.”

   AMEN.

   Then I pray; Oh Lord ;

   Give me a friend

     And I’ll shuffle along;

   My vision may vanish,

     My dream may go wrong;

   My wealth I may lose,

     Or my money may spend;;

   But I’ll walk right along,

     If you give me a friend.

   Give me a friend,

     And my youth may depart

   But still I’ll be young

     In the house of my heart,

   Yes, I’ll go on laughing

     Right on till the end,

   Whatever the years,

     If you give me a FRIEND .

   Blessings to all and wishing Ya’ll a Blessed Lords Day.

     Ron.

    Sad but true. It’s way too easy to say one thing and do another and when our prayer life fails then we fail too.

    Grandpaw, my apologies. I had wanted to comment here much sooner but never got around to it till now.

    Thank you for remembering our daughter (she is doing well, so far) and all those others in your prayers. I know we should pray without ceasing and I fail miserably in that. But I ain’t quiting!!! 🙂

    Have a very blessed Sunday.

    God’s Grace.

    Hi Corry,

    No apoligies necessary , I understand folks get busy with their families and jobs ! I’m glad your daughter is doing ok, but it will take a little while for things are in order with her ?

    I’m a patient person even tho I hit the keys to visit your blog the olive oil makes my keyboard slippery and I almost broke my one typing finger I got?

    Blessings and wishing you and KC a good week !
    Ron.
