Please Hear and Forgive

O Lord, God of Israel, there is no God like you in all of heaven above or on the earth below. You fulfill you promises and show unfailing love and grace to those who seek You. Whatever promise you made, You will indeed fulfill it.

You have been so good to me and I couldn’t be more grateful.

Forgive me when I follow my own desires and not Yours, just as I have many times before.

Forgive me when I get destructed from Your purposes, forgetting Your hopes and plans for me and unknowingly put my attention into something that is destructive and dishonor You.

Forgive me when I am doing things on my own wisdom without even considering Yours.
Please know that deep down in my heart all I want is to follow and please You.
That even in my worst moment when it may seem that I have given my affection into something or someone other than You, Please know that my allegiance is always be to You.

When the cares of this world is blinding me from trusting You, when materialism may seem so huge that I become so proud and greedy. When I become so full of myself and I forgetting about others. When I come to my senses and will turn back from them and plead for your mercy and forgiveness. Please hear and forgive.

Oh Lord this is the truest desire of my life. That when my thoughts are not clouded, there is nothing I want more than to know You, to be transformed by You and to follow You. There will be times when I will fail to show that, please remind me to humble myself and come back to You with a saddened and repentant heart. And when I do I pray please hear and forgive.

I want You to know that no matter what happens, whatever life may bring, in failings and successes, in poverty and in prosperity, in sicknesses and in health, I am resolved to keep coming back to you.

Amen!

Exodus 20:3-5 “You shall have no other gods before Me. 4 “You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earthbeneath or in the water under the earth. 5 “You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me.

How to pray for Mainland China?

POPULATION OF CHINA: more than 1.3 billion

LOCATION: East Asia
% of the POPULATION that follow CHINESE FOLK RELIGION: about 29%

(Due to Communism, almost 50% of the population are now classified as non religious)
Restrict Evangelism

The growth of the Church in Mainland China since 1977 has been incredible, due to:
– the sacrificial seed sowing of thousands of missionaries for 140 years prior to the Communist take over in 1949
-the millions of intercessors worldwide who have prayed for China.
-the Christians who stood firm despite harsh persecutions.

This incredible growth and receptivity may only be for a season. Materialism with increasing wealth, corruption and moral decline are all working together to blunt the cutting edge of the Church.

Strict controls are maintained over Christian organizations and all unregistered activity is repressed wherever possible.

PRAYER POINTS:

PRAY for the House Church movement in mainland china. It is growing fast but it needs mature church leaders who can give good teaching and training to the many converts. Pray that the present openness in the midst of opposition may be used to the full.

PRAY also for the registered churches that they always prioritize God’s agenda.

PRAY for the Chinese students who are the key for the future. Pray that the Christians among them will be build up in their faith and be fervent witness for Christ.

Then Sings My Soul Saturday-You are God Alone

The world is in crisis today. Everyone is affected; I was thinking about these things few days ago, but God reminded me of what He said to Moises in Exodus 8:23, that He will make a distinction between His people and Pharaoh’s people. I do admit sometimes i felt affected with what is happening, but God constantly reminding me of His word. Just like what He said in Romans 8:31b “if God is for me who can be against me.”

The world maybe crumbling, but my God will surely provide all my needs. The psalmist said I have been young and now am old yet i have never seen the righteous forsaken, nor his descendants begging bread.

In times like this, let’s look for our heavenly Father; because He is for us at this present moment, we can be confident that He will help us. Remember He sent His Son Jesus Christ and when we accepted Him, He gave us the right to have an abundant life. So we can be at peace and filled with joy even when the economy is going down.

Our God is not affected by financial crisis, He is unshakable.

Our God is not affected by the World recession, He is unstoppable, and He can bless His people even in the midst of drought.

Our God is not affected by the changes, He is unchangeable.

Rest my friend in God’s love and faithfulness.

You are not a God

Created by human hands
You are not a God
Dependant on any mortal man
You are not a God
In need of anything we can give
By Your plan, that’s just the way it is

You are God alone
From before time began
You were on Your throne
You are God alone
And right now
In the good times and bad
You were on the throne
You are God alone

You’re the only God
Whose power none can contend
You’re the only God
Whose name and praise will never end
You’re the only God
Who’s worthy of everything we can give
You are God
And that’s just the way it is

Unchangeable
Unshakable
Unstoppable
That’s what You are
