“Keep Me In Your Prayers”

~ KEEP ME IN YOUR PRAYERS ~

 

Since we always say “Keep me in your prayers” to each other, I thought of sharing a small story about the actual meaning of these 5 words. Just go on and read it and I am sure you will start thinking the way I am after reading this story.

 

A voyaging ship was wrecked during a storm at sea and only two of the men on it were able to swim to a small, desert-like island. The two survivors, not knowing what else to do, agreed that they had no other recourse but to pray to God.

 

However, to find out whose prayer was more powerful, they agreed to divide the territory between them and stay on opposite sides of the island.

 

The first thing they prayed for was food. The next morning, the first man saw a fruit-bearing tree on his side of the land, and he was able to eat its fruit. The other man’s parcel of land remained barren.

 

After a week, the first man was lonely and he decided to pray for a wife. The next day, there was a woman who swam to his side of the land. On the other side of the island, there was nothing.

 

Soon the first man prayed for a house, clothes and more food. The next day, like magic, all of these things were given to him. However, the second man still had nothing.

 

Finally, the first man prayed for a ship, so that he and his wife could leave the island. In the morning, he found a ship docked at his side of the island.

 

The first man boarded the ship with his wife and decided to leave the second man on the island. He considered the other man unworthy to receive God’s Blessings since none of his prayers had been answered.

 

As the ship was about to leave, the first man heard a voice from heaven booming, “Why are you leaving your companion on the island, spoke the voice?”

 

My Blessings are mine alone since I was the one who prayed for them, “the first man answered,’ His prayers were all unanswered and so he does not deserve anything.”

 

“You are mistaken!” the voice rebuked him. “He had only one prayer, which I answered. If not for that, you would not have received any of my Blessings.”

 

“Tell me,” the first man asked the voice, “what did he pray for that I should owe him anything?”

 

“He prayed that all your prayers be answered.”

 

For all we know, our blessings are not the fruits of our prayers alone, but also those of others praying for us.

 

My prayer for you tonight, “is that all your prayers are answered.”  Be Blessed and I pray it to be abundantly too. 

 

“What you do for others, is far more important, than what you do for yourself.”

 

“So whether you’re a believer of a Mighty Creator or not,  and that’s none of my business really, but most definitely I’ll keep you in my prayers tonight.”

 

Warmest Regards

William

The Still Voice

The Still Voice

Depth’s of His heart,
loves all people for
who they are.

The Still Voice talks,
but who is listening.

He weeps with sorrow,
because His children’s
gone astray.

The Still Voice talks,
but who is listening.

He talks once again,
to be astrayed to His land.

The still Voice talks,
but who is listening.

One said: I heard You talk to thee,
the love pours about.

The still Voice talks,
hence,
someone….. was…. listening….

Forgiveness

Forgiveness

Forgive my heart,
for my mind did sin.
For to temptation,
it did give in.
But not my heart,
true to you it did stay!
So why for my minds mistake,
should it pay?
Not through my actions,
but through my thoughts I did wrong.
If you must, blame my weak mind,
for not being strong.
But not my heart,
true to you it did stay.
And I could not bear,
to be turned away.
For any action my mind did make,
in no way did my heart partake.
In my mind ones faults,
ones errors or mistake.
If you must displease my mind,
for what it did make.
But not my heart when,
all it’s done is love you .

Easter to Enjoy

Easter To Enjoy

Jesus came to earth,
to show us how to live.

How to put others first,
how to love and how to give.

Then He set about His work,
that God sent Him to do.

He took our punishment on Himself,
He made us clean and new.

He could have saved Himself,
calling Angels from above.

But He chose to pay our price for sin,
He paid it out of love.

Our Lord died on Good Friday,
but the cross did not destroy.

His resurrection on Easter morn,
that fills our hearts with joy.

Now we know our earthly death,
like His, is just a rest.

We’ll be forever with Him,
in Heaven, where life is best.

So we live our lives for Jesus,
think of Him in all we do.

Thank you Savior,
thank you Lord,
help us love like You.

Merry Christmas everyone and Happy New Year as well. 

May this season bring us all together to celebrate the birth of a King, a Saviour to life’s humanity, man. He paid our price for our sin’s, and I am ever so grateful He, Christ Jesus, was sent by the Holy Father. May peace be with you all, and may good health and prosperity may find you all! God Bless…. 

Rational Thinking

Rational Thinking

Rational thinking,
wise to choose.

It’s a little bit harder,
nothing more for me to lose.

Broken dreams,
broken hearts.

Broken wings,
my broken parts.

Rational thinking,
wise to choose.

It’s a little bit harder now,
nothing more for me to lose.

I’m struggling harder,
just to stay alive.

I’m struggling harder now,
just to say goodbye.

Rational thinking,
wise to choose.

It’s a little bit harder now,
nothing more for me to lose.

Please come fix me,
please fix me now.

Rational thinking,
wise to choose.

I’m struggling harder now,
nothing more for…me…to…lose…

Me, A Servant

Me, A Servant

My what an honor today,

that I serve Jesus.

To take His loving hand,

please show me the way.

He opened my eyes,

allowed me to see.

He blew life in my lungs,

He brought me to breathe.

It was in nick of time,

I wouldn’t have it any other way.

You took me from that storm,

that thrashed me away.

You brought Peace in me now,

I’ll never live without.

Your my center of my world,

I’ll give it a shout..

I have more Love for You,

that one person can give.

My what a pleasure it is,

that You live within.

I was foolish in the first place,

not to be with You.

I love You more today Lord,

more than I did yesterday too.
