Proverbs: Chapter 11 verse 11
Through the blessing of the upright
a city is exalted
but by the mouth of the wicked
it is destroyed.
Just think right where you are, you can be a blessing to the city or town that you live in. In your own community you can be a blessing, by praying and being in the love of Jesus day by day. We are not all called to go out to be a prominent person in our community but by prayer and supplication we as Christians can make a great difference in the city around us. Today let us pray for the place that we live in for peace to prevail and for the mouth of the wicked to be cleansed.
From the Book: Drink from the Cup by J.M.R. Larman.
So in a special way we can have the Keys of the City in our hearts to pray for the place that we are living in. It may not matter if it is a Great City or a Small Country Town. Jesus will hear our prayers when we really pray for our place where with live to be Blessed.
No Prayer is wasted if it is prayed truly from our heart not just to pray idle words but words that we really mean what we are praying for.
Can we say Bless The Lord oh my Soul and enter into that place of Prayer for our City or Town. Let us Pray that Peace will Prevail, Justice be done, Joy & Love to be Blessings for the people who live in and around us. Let us ask our Father in Heaven to Bless the Children, the young ones, the teenagers, the adults, even our Pets, the animals in our City or Town.
Remember that the mouth of the wicked will want to destroy all the above, so we need to pray. Also remember James 5 in verse 16…….. that the Fervent Prayer of a Righteous Man accomplishes much.
* May God Bless us today as we Pray
for the place we are living in *

John: Chapter 4 verse 22
Samaritans worship what you do not know;
we worship what we do know,
for salvation is from the Jews.
Jesus said the above and it is true, so we do need to pray for the Jew’s and thank God for His Grace that He receives us Gentiles into Salvation. Let us be thankful today for the incredible love of Our Father in Heaven.
So the above gives us food for thought – as most people think it not necessary to pray for the Jews. We must remember that a lot of them are not Christians, they do need our Prayers. Yes the Jew’s are God’s chosen people but many have rejected Jesus and that is very sad as they do not recognize Him as their Saviour and Lord of Lords.
We are very fortunate that God our Heavenly Father accepts us Gentiles into Salvation when we acknowledge Jesus Christ His Son to be Lord of our lives and invite Him into our Hearts. And what a Blessing that He allows His Holy Spirit to be with us – Praise The Lord.
So: Let us submit ourselves afresh today to Our Father in Heaven.
Let us walk in the Love of Jesus
in Fellowship with The Holy Spirit.
May God Bless us today.
Have a Lovely Day walking in the Love of The Lord.
