    A simple Good Morning.

    Matthew 6:9-13 (KJV)

    9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

    10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

    11 Give us this day our daily bread.

    12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

    13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
    Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.

    Thank you brother! Good reminder for me.

    That prayer has amazing power in it.

    Thank you Lord for all the blessings you have showered upon me.

    And I wish you a good morning back, with this from Samuel 7:18-22.

    " Then went king David in, and sat before the Lord, and he said, Who am I, O Lord God? and what is my house, that thou hast brought me hitherto?

    19 And this was yet a small thing in thy sight, O Lord God; but thou hast spoken also of thy servant's house for a great while to come. And is this the manner of man, O Lord God?

    20 And what can David say more unto thee? for thou, Lord God, knowest thy servant.

    21 For thy word's sake, and according to thine own heart, hast thou done all these great things, to make thy servant know them.

    22 Wherefore thou art great, O Lord God: for there is none like thee, neither is there any God beside thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears."

    Like David, sometimes I wonder what the Lord is doing in my life, and how, and why. To what purpose. Hindsight lets us see what the Lord's plan for David was. What is his plan for us?

    We don't know, but the anticipation is great, yet full of joy as we know it will be good and, as always, more than we asked for. GW
    "If you can walk with crowds and keep your virtue,
    Or walk with Kings, nor lose the common touch,
    Yours is the earth and everything that's in it,
    And, which is more, you'll be a man my son!" R. Kipling

    The Holiness of God
    The Kingdom of God
    The provision of God
    The forgiveness of God
    The power of God

    Help us Lord to remember and acknowledge these daily!

    Amen to all posts. That particular prayer has been used often in battle by many who just weren't used to praying, but at least at one time, most everyone knew it, and thousands of men facing battle have found tremendous solace in it. Individuals have too, facing whatever trial was before them.

    It seems to be characteristic to many to want to pray "flowery" prayers, and indeed, our Lord is worthy of the best prayers we can concoct. However, I don't think He's all that impressed by the flowery nature of our "best" prayers (at least "best" in our value system), nearly as much as He is when someone prays a very simple but very heartfelt prayer. He knows, I think, just how earnestly we mean our prayers, and the depth of our pleas.

    What a wonderful and masterful Lord we serve!

    A simple Sunday Good morning.

    Dear Lord Jesus,
    I know I am a sinner.
    I believe you died for my sins.
    Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and life.
    I confess you as my personal Lord and Savior.
    Thank you for saving me.
    Amen.

    I have been trying something. When I am about to say something angry I close my lips, eyes, and say the Lords Prayer.

    It works great, as long as I remember to get started before the angry words start to flow.

    Peace like a river is a wonderful thing. Thank you Lord.

    I always liked the Doxology. Simple, yet elegant in its simplicity.

    Ghost, I say the Lord's prayer before I do or say anything. It gives me pause and the patience that I don't possess on my own.

    Pine Baron, I can see myself moving in that direction.

    It is amazing to one minute be mad enough to spit nails and the next have a soft voice and a tender heart that turneth away wrath.

    I am sure for a few months there my wife thought I was going to end up in a mental hospital. Then all of a sudden she stopped digging in her heels and started helping me to remember.

    All she could say when I ask why the change of heart is that she loves this new me even more than the old one. He is a kinder gentler kind of guy.

    To which of course I grump "Well if you would grow a little hide"

    Just wish I had not wasted so much of that 40 years being stubborn and going my own way. Don't be like me.

    Amazing, isn't it, the power prayer truly has. It focuses us on something beyond whatever we are caring so much about at any given moment, and lifts up our eyes to all that lies beyond that brief moment, and lends balance to our eyes and hearts, and lets us do things that we'd otherwise find so difficult as to be practically repugnant to us while we're still locked into our emotional status of the moment. Prayer's healing and tempering powers have long been known. It's just up to us to USE them more often and more effectively. Praying with gritted teeth isn't usually considered real praying! One little change in focus and perception, and we quickly remember "This too shall pass," or other things that keep our words and behavior within the realm that God finds acceptable, and keeps us from entering into behaviors and words that God might NOT find so "acceptable." Prayer is amazing. How could it NOT be when it comes from God?

    MATTHEW 22

    36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

    37 Jesus said to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.

    38 This is the first and great commandment.

    39 And the second is like to it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself.

    40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

    Good morning, trying to keep it simple.

    Psalm 23:

    1{A Psalm of David.} The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

    2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

    3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

    4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

    5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

    6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

    Good morning in return PB.

    Psa 51:15-17 KJV O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise. (16) For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering. (17) The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
