This Book of Poetry is dedicated to my
Soul-Mate in Christ – my beautiful wife Toni…
God First- All Else Will Fall Into Place!!!
Dear Friends of Goodwill,
Thanks for picking up the raw first to eprint book I’ve ever done. My life consists of practice, prayer and proclamation of living the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Daily we can take this stroll together enjoying the peace God instills in all mankind.
I seek the poetic connection to God, His Son and His Spirit as One in everything I spiritually translate from the Bible into Scripture Poetry. I listen and pray daily recording a global satellite and webcast on closerwalkmedia.com many times before 4 AM each day.
Please pray for our ministry “God First Ministries, Inc.” We believe our motto is His motto, “God First-All else will fall into place.” Amen. Our daily 5 minute program allows a listener to find Christ in brevity filled with the Spirit Who poetically rises in every rhyme centered in the glory of God our Father and the only way to Heaven; Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen. Sundays we’re placing 15 minute programs to hear more in depth teaching and poetry of the Gospel Books as we make our way through to His Revelation of love, faith and hope of His Charity. I pray His Everlasting Hand is upon every word for people to know His passion, His purpose and His peace. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Thank You Jesus! May we all find forgiveness Eternal.

I must begin by saying that I just prayed for you to the Holy Spirit. Trust me you have just been prayed for: to enkindle the Fire of His love in your hearts.
My name is Toni Cruz-Wiggins and I am the author’s wife and soul mate in Christ Jesus. We are intimately connected through our souls. We met by a God incident. I work for a church and at the time there was a school connected to us where Thomas had an interview for a job as a teacher. He came into my office asking for the principle and I told him he was in the wrong place (right place in hindsight) and I showed him the direction to the school. It was a beautiful sunny day when he walked in, however, within those few seconds right as he turned to leave, it began to thunder and lightning and rain pouring down. He returned and asked me for an umbrella and I said, “Sure, do you have a credit card and a driver’s license”. He laughed and said, “Of course”. For those of you who are not familiar with the phrase, it’s a method of getting someone to return a loaned item, such as a rented car, tools, etc. Of course I said it to him in jest. When he returned a couple of hours later with the umbrella (the only reason he had to come back was the umbrella, otherwise he would have left straight from the interview and this Foreword would not exist) we began to talk without interruptions of telephone calls or visitors for 2 hours. Before he left he asked me to lunch the following day, and the rest is history.
What a magnificent man my husband is; very spontaneous, outspoken and a lover of our Lord and His Holy Word (Scripture). He is an Evangelist and a Poet. Sometimes I call him “mi santo Tomasito” which in Spanish means “my Saint Thomas.” He is very dedicated and faithful to his daily Bible Study waking up each morning, most days at 3:00 AM, to spend time with God in prayer and accomplish the work the Lord has set out for him with his daily study. I am amazed at times by his dedication, for even when he is sick and sleeps past 3:00 AM, he will make sure his “Universal Utterings” radio show for that day has been accomplished.
Thomas has a brief radio program he puts out daily and in those few minutes says more than some say in lengthily talks. I have asked him to forward any responses he receives from listeners and I must say that he reaches the hearts of many people throughout the world.
Here are examples of some responses:
Happiness, I mean real happiness within, comes from knowing Jesus and constantly growing in my walk with Him. You help me toward this goal with your broadcasts. Lorna Stephens, June 12, 2014
I listen regularly to your broadcast and I am always encouraged in the Word. I believe that the Bible is our source of all encouragement and sense of direction that comes direct from God. Your work is a blessing.
Janice Evers from Perth, Australia, April 15, 2015
The day we received the GlobaSat receiver was a real blessing because not long after that we started listening to your broadcast. You have an excellent program that helps us all to better understand what God intends for each of us. Sincerely,
Marie Price-Jones from Manchester, England, May 29,2015
My family listens to your broadcast all the time. You give us the love of the Lord in a concise lesson and we are filled with the Holy Spirit. We ask God’s blessings in our diligent work for the Lord.
Margaret Lawrence (and family) from London, UK October 15, 2015
This book on the Psalms you are about to read has been put together with prayer, fasting, hard work, dedication and commitment. As Thomas has coined the phrase, he was, Spirit led, God inspired, Christ fed. Amen! You will have the opportunity to find yourself in this book and find solutions to your own situations that are heaven sent. All the author asks of you is for you to Practice, Pray, and Proclaim with your lives what you read. As St. Francis of Assisi said, “Preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary use words.”
God First All Else Will Fall Into Place
Wife and Soul Mate in Christ Jesus
Day One Psalm One
Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, Nor stand in the way of sinners, nor sit in company with scoffers. Rather, the Law of the LORD is his joy; and on His Law he meditates day and night. Psalm 1:1-2
I begin a one hundred fifty day walk through the Psalms seeking to convert each into God-inspired poetry reflecting the Spirit of God fed by faith, hope and love of Christ’s Charity. My prayer is to publish God’s work of placing God First allowing a surefire way of how God asks us to be obedient to His Son’s Truth. Of course I see our walk with God as following the Three P’s of passion, purpose and peace by your practice, prayer and proclamation of God and the Trinity’s Truth.
First, to walk in the Way of the LORD can only be achieved by opening your Bible daily in practice living His passion of righteousness confident your life has your obedience to only His Will. Practice leads to perfection by the prayer you live constantly. God asks me to tell you again; constantly. Because prayer is not palms held together with eyes closed held out in front of you but prayer is the thoughts you generate in Him by a complete Communion with His Spirit.
Here, peace is achieved in the final “P” by the proclamation your practice and prayer has given you. We must be bold to evangelize the Truth leaving our comfort zone by living His Will of faith, hope and love of Charity. We place God First in the meditation we give of His Laws knowing His Righteousness surpasses all for the Trinity we place our trust in acknowledging grace by the Charity we live for Him and Him alone. We seek not the company of the wicked but share Christ’s Salvation of Everlasting Life. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray to walk in practice, prayer and proclamation to love Your Will LORD. LORD from Psalm 1:5-6, I chant, “Therefore the wicked will not arise at the judgment, nor will sinners in the assembly of the just. Because the LORD knows the way of the just, but the way of the wicked leads to ruin.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Ruin leads to death while the just knows His Light- Psalm 1
Walking in the LORD
Blessed his accord
Wicked he will scorn
Sinners and scoffers company he will mourn
Lord and His Law he obeys
His joy is following them each and every way
Meditating each every night as he prays
Constantly firm as a tree watered by a stream each day
Roots given to soil that is rich
Fruits yielded every season to wit
Wither not the leaves one single bit
Prospers does he who follows the Light God has lit
Not the wicked David would write
By God’s ear he had every single night
My poetry is read in His Holy sight
Judgment for the wicked known to be right
Ruin leads to death while the just knows His Light
Day Two Psalm Two
Serve the LORD with fear; exult with trembling, accept correction lest He become angry and you perish along the way when His anger suddenly blazes up. Blessed are all who take refuge in Him! Psalm 2:11
We never know when or why God will correct us in the midst of being selfish and neglectful when following the Truth God instills in the world. We admonish Truth in our life by taking not the time to give God our undivided attention but to think God is a distant relative we visit only on family reunions conversed about under whispered tones of denial. The passion of God comes from knowing His Son Jesus Who gave us freedom by taking the sin of the world dying to overcome despair Rising to live Redeemed.
We all enjoy this Freedom by the passion we place around our practice to know our Bible not in silent or whispered tones but by faith to hope for Truth in the love we share for His Charity understanding correction is God’s way of keeping us all on the right track totally in Truth. Allow God to be First for all else will fall into place according to His Will corrected and Renewed in Salvation’s Glory. None of us can throw blame at any sinner when asked by Jesus, “let he who is without sin, cast the first stone.” Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray to accept correction LORD to live in Truth. LORD from Psalm 2:7, I chant, “I will proclaim the decree of the LORD, He said to me, “You are my son; today I have begotten You.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
In Him we accept correction to know Truth we concede- Psalm 2
Precipitated by Truth
Psalm two is rebellions use
In vain they abide to argue
Against the LORD by all of you
Princes or kings no matter
One anointed to calm the clatter
Swift is God’s Will of the latter
Chains casted off will splatter
Laughing from on High is He
The LORD of all established Decrees
Derides them by anger to see
Terrified by wrath to correct thee
Decree proclaimed to fulfill
All testimony prior God instilled
Mountain so Holy begotten Son Till
Inheritance asked possessed earth and its ends God’s Will
Them Shepherd with an iron rod take heed
One may learn by the way they bleed
On earth you will find correction indeed
Refuge from judgment you perish from greed
In Him we accept correction to know Truth we concede
Day Three Psalm Three
I lie down and I fall asleep, [and] I will wake up, for the LORD sustains me. Salvation is from the LORD! May Your blessing be upon Your people! Psalm 3:6, 9
When we lie down and fall asleep or rise and wake up, do we thank our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ for the Salvation He gives to all? The distractions of evil dressed up in Sunday Best places the emphasis away from what Truth really means for you and for me. The focus has been shadowed by less clothes and more personal display of affection for pleasures rallying around the wrong cause. Are we looking for sin or are we looking for Salvation? The Center of the world revolves around Three asking us to be all we can to accomplish true Charity.
The Truth wants man to be ever grateful giving thanks continually by the faith we place to practice, practice and practice some more. God First can’t be a cliché we speak about on Sunday mornings. Placing God First is an obedient life to Truth embracing the faith we receive from the grace of practice- simply reading your Bible every day and speaking to the Father, Son and the Holy Ghost aloud active in Truth relishing righteousness by the love our hearts beat for. Try to lie down in Christ and awake in Christ aloud or in your soul to practice, pray and proclaim faith, hope and love of Charity. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray to lie down in You LORD and awake in You LORD. LORD from Psalm 3:5, I chant, “With my own voice I will call out to the LORD, and He will answer me.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
How the wicked of David by God He would chide- Psalm 3
Psalm three was a flee
Absalom David’s son would conceive
Death for David he tried to see
Nothing but trust would David believe
Rising against the king to steal
The crown for a son he couldn’t conceal
Foes a plenty agree not of his God’s appeal
Salvation was the Truth the LORD was his shield
Glory and honor keeping his head high
Calling out aloud the LORD sustained his cry
Asleep when I lie down on my knees to abide
Waking up by God His protection David would confide
Even though people by the thousands on all sides
The LORD did arise to save David’s hide
Foes cheekbone was struck their teeth would collide
How the wicked of David by God He would chide
LORD is Salvation His Blessing upon David would rise
Day Four Psalm Four
Answer me when I call, my Saving God. When troubles hem me in, set me free; take pity on me, hear my prayer. Psalm 4:2
We all know how to call on God when we are in trouble but do we really call on Him when we are safe? God asks us to call on Him night and day in the midst of goodness or sorrow gathered in love or dismay seeking Truth by the faith, hope and love we live in Charity. We cannot get away from the Charity God calls all to participate in in every facet of living.
Daily we should look for ways to accomplish this Charity unafraid of people unknown choosing Divine Outlook over public opinion. When we begin to believe God is a Saving God, we trudge forward in confidence He will “hear my prayer” allowing my troubles to be cut loose from the hem of harassments be it reactions to food with sick stomachs or mistakes we make seeking selfish motives- call out to God and He will hear your prayer. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray we will call on You LORD to overcome all adversity celebrating Your Truth to live in peace. LORD from Psalm 4:3-4, I chant, “How long, O people, will you be hard of heart? Why do you love what is worthless, chase after lies? Selah. Know that the LORD works wonders for his faithful one; the LORD hears when I call out to Him.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Secure me LORD- Psalm 4
God to answer
David would agree
God hears call
Troubles set free
Pity on he
King David’s prayer
Heart so hard
People he cared
Love to tremble
No more sin
Bitterly weeping symbol
Wailing hearts win
Sacrifices fitting offer
LORD you trust
Wisdom times better
Light shown us
Secure me LORD
Make me found
In You stored
Truth so sound
Day Five Psalm Five
Consider it all joy, my brothers, when you encounter various trials, for you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. And let perseverance be perfect, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. James 1:2-4
You will protect them and those will rejoice in You who love Your Name. Psalm 5:12b
We all know how hard it is to live through trials where faith seems to take a back seat to Truth willing to engage anyone to get what you want over any scruples you may have been taught to cease the moment, right? No matter how hard the life Jesus can make your life harmonious in peace with your soul. Dancing really only takes one to be yourself as your Wiggling with God takes four where the Trinity will implore you to relish the Cross of Redemption by faith righteous in hope proclaiming love of forgiveness and freedom from sin.
When you dance with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, you become rejoiceful to announce Their names as you walk, talk or balk with others or alone praying aloud in a complete surrender to His perseverance- the PSA to practice, pray and preach. “Perfection Serving Always.” Amen
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray to persevere rejoicing always in You LORD. LORD from Psalm 5:4, I chant, “In the morning You will hear my voice; in the morning I will plead before You and wait.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Rejoicing in You blessed favor as our shield- Psalm 5
Wind from a throat
The leader gave to stroke
Instruments of David’s note
Written in Psalm Five to bloat
Calling to God sighing
Words there’s no denying
Please attend to my crying
King My God praying and abiding
Voice heard early in the morning
Wait You will hear my pleading
Not delighting in evil sneering
Wicked won’t find refuge in You leering
Evil You despise LORD Truly hate
Destroying all spoken in lies to state
Fraudulent and bloody won’t relate
Detesting what the LORD didn’t create
Mercy did abide in David’s plan
He remained faithful to God’s Eternal Plan
Down he would bow praying God’s Holy Commands
Way straight over foes by the justice of His Hand
Mouth has no sincerity of heart
Corrupt throat a grave they would part
Lies from Your foes tongues who start
Sins many rebelling Truth as a farce
Guilty declare God devices own they steal
Rebelling against You sins they can’t heal
Glad will we be those who trust what we feel
Rejoicing in You blessed favor as our shield
Day Six Psalm Six
Blessed is the man who perseveres in temptation, for when he has been proved he will receive the Crown of Life that He promised to those who love Him. No one experiencing temptation should say, “I am being tempted by God”; for God is not subject to temptation to evil, and He himself tempts no one. Rather, each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. Then desire conceives and brings forth sin, and when sin reaches maturity it gives birth to death. Mark 8:12-15
Have pity on me, LORD, for I am weak; heal me, LORD, for my bones are shuddering. Psalm 6:3
The Promise cannot be overlooked but allow our obedience to be centered on the Cross to “persevere in temptation” enjoying Divine Favor living for the “Crown of Life;” Salvation’s Life Eternal. James reminds us today we should never blame God for the temptation we feel by the self-willed urge God gave all to accept or deny covered in Christ’s righteousness or wallowing in sin’s maturation of death. “God is not subject to temptation to evil, and He himself tempts no one.”
We on the other hand drag others along with our despair or duty living in selfish sin or living in surrendered saintliness. The LORD knows His human race is weak and He will give us each a plan to find the Crown of Life by your practice, prayer and proclamation of God’s Word. Not tempted nor tested by God; conceived by desire maturing to death. He will hear your prayer of pity and love to help the weak worry less healed ready for Heaven’s call. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray to last through our temptations by the trust we place in You. LORD from Psalm 6:9, I chant, “Away from me, all who do evil! The LORD has heard the sound of my weeping.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Disgraced sudden for foes who play with hell- Psalm 6
Stringed start to David’s wail
Psalm eight lost musical grail
Overlook David punish not a nail
His hands weak shuddering bones frail
Greatly is David’s soul in pain too
Asking “How long?” will he have to make do
Rescue the soul turn back to reprove
Mercy because he is saved by grace of You
Our God where remembrance can be torn
Death forgets praises with no scorn
Tears drenching his bed to approve and adorn
Weeping sorrow dimmed eyes foes out worn
Evil will run away from David as he wails
Weeping aloud heard by the God who tells
Prayer received earnest plea never fails
Disgraced sudden for foes who play with hell
Day Seven Psalm Seven
Know this, my dear brothers: everyone should be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath, for the wrath of a man does not accomplish the righteousness of God. Therefore, put away all filth and evil excess and humbly welcome the Word that has been planted in you and is able to save your souls. Be doers of the Word and not hearers only, deluding yourselves. James 1:19-22
Judge me, LORD, according to my righteousness, and my integrity. Psalm 7:9b
We can encounter some pretty crazy things when we let go of God’s righteousness by His Word we have to be obedient to in every second of every day. We can lose our cool so to speak in an instant if He is placed on a shelf or worse yet thrown into a drawer.
Combined with filth and evil we have a huge amount of distractions to overcome and the only Way to overcome the flash and flair of society’s excess is to “be doers of the Word.”
We are told we must do more than listen but be doers of God’s Truth allowing us to know His grace “according to my righteousness, and my integrity.” Here, we find God’s judgment by the Will we align with His in the way we speak observing quickly to not become hot-headed over kindness showing the Word you practice in action for Truth. God wants you to be righteous in Truth abiding in a surrender of love.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray to speak slowly and listen intently by the Truth of Your Word. LORD from Psalm 7:12, I chant, “God is a Just Judge, Powerful and Patient, not exercising anger every day.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Integrity will end the wicked malice abuse- Psalm 7
Cush, the Benjaminite
David sang of him into the night
The seventh Psalm as sung to God’s Holy Right
Trusted and rescued in flight
Saved from pursuit of people’s might
Lion mauled by someone who’s slight
Apart torn his soul to their delight
This if he had done hands guilty as sin
If without cause my treatment can’t defend
Oppressor despoiled no cause to commend
Enemies can take my soul even David’s honor then
In God David would see the rise of Truth
Judgment on the peoples as proof
David judged by the righteousness he accrued
Integrity will end the wicked malice abuse
Day Eight Psalm Eight
For if a man with gold rings on his fingers and in fine clothes comes into your assembly, and a poor person in shabby clothes also comes in, and you pay attention to the one wearing the fine clothes and say, “Sit here, please,” while you say to the poor one, “Stand there,” or “Sit at my feet,” have you not made distinctions among yourselves and become judges with evil designs? James 2:2-4
You have given him rule over the works of your hands, put all things at his feet. Psalm 8:7
We all encounter the person who is hard to approach be it a man or a woman who seems like there is something emanating from their being usually a smell or a shadow of filth preventing us to approach with eagerness and peace. Yes, I believe we must approach people in Christ’s peace abiding in faith allowing hope to come forth from our love. This love must be unselfish abiding in Christ’s Saving grace engaging them in friendly conversation void of any judgment that may seem impolite.
This week I encountered just a man name Larry. As I went to visit my wife at church, he came from nowhere carrying a pair of shoes that were disintegrated wearing shorts and an open shirt. His smile was emanating pain from sore swollen and red feet void of sound decisions as he asked me if I had any shoes or food he could have. I had left my “Trunk of Comfort” at home to clean my car out and had no shoes but the ones on my feet. “What size are you?” I asked with a smile. “An 11,” he replied.
After asking my wife if she had any in the church, I sat down and pulled my socks and shoes off handing them to him with God’s love saying, “these are an 11 and I think they’ll fit perfect.” After some prayer and a promise I’d bring him some new pants and shirt the next day, he was on his way with my half drank sweet tea and a new pair of Nikes. James reminds us today to act as Christ allowing the “works” of our hands be that of Jesus our Savior to instill faith, hope and love of Charity’s Truth. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray to give until it hurts showing no partiality to recipient. LORD from Psalm 8:3b, I chant, “You have established a bulwark against Your foes, to silence enemy and avenger.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Name Awesome on earth controlling Heaven’s breeze- Psalm 8
Psalm 8 would try and relate
Infants and babes inadequately state
Avenger of enemies silence in their pace
Heaven’s stars and moon did He place
Man can work his own hands to see
The blessing of food from all categories
Every beast of the land and of the sea
Given by You LORD plants we are to seize
Name Awesome on earth controlling Heaven’s breeze
Day Nine Psalm Nine
So also faith of itself, if it does not have works, is dead. James 2:17
The needy will never be forgotten, nor will the hope of the afflicted ever fade. Psalm 9:19
Whoever wishes to come after Me must deny himself, take up his Cross, and follow Me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My Sake and that of the Gospel will save it. Mark 8:34b-35
The walk of life comes with an internal ability to take care of yourself naturally where survival is second nature by the God-instilled need to breathe, be fed nourishment and affection including hydration by water but most importantly humans must give back to fulfill God’s Commands of faith, hope and love instilling Charity for the needy serving the afflicted with the “Will of Hope” by trusting in God.
Here, I believe we deny our will of self-taking on the love of serving demonstrated in the works we live. At some point in our life we must sit down and pull our own shoes off and give to them someone more needy than you. Maybe this will come more than once but we must be willing to lift the Cross of Christ as our own denying selfish motives for causes aligned with the Will of God for the Sake of Christ’s Salvation! Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray to live works of the Gospel. LORD from Psalm 9:3, I chant, “I will delight and rejoice in You; I will sing hymns to Your Name, Most High.”
Shown only your human right- Psalm 9
Acrostic poetry in Hebrew
David’s number nine
The Psalm ten we knew
Grew as One Divine
A melody lost Muth Labben
Spoken within or before
Zion daughter was laden
Spouse of God we can’t ignore
Helping the poor and afflicted
Rescued by God’s Holy Hand
Living in Truth we risk it
To help the poor make a stand
Nations will see His Judgment
Snared by their own plight
Trapped is the wicked involvement
Shown only your human right
Day Ten Psalm Ten
Do not lord it over those assigned to you, but be examples to the flock. First Peter 5:3
You listen, LORD, to the needs of the poor; You strengthen their heart and incline Your ear. Psalm 10:17
Peter gives advice of example resting not on complacency but resting in the Truth of Christ to share the Salvation of faith, hope and love of Charity’s peace. “Be examples of the flock” showing the Way and learned by reading your Bible daily. We cannot be afraid of reading His love for you and for me how He died to set us free for all eternity hanging on a Cross in complete humility.
To be humble as He strengthens hearts and nourishes souls living by example void of prides early death. We must attend to the needs of the poor not just the ones begging on corners with signs of shame held over their faces but the ones in our own neighborhoods and towns where being poor may come in spirits unsound encouraging Charity that leads to Salvation’s Crown. Peter tells us this Crown of Glory granting Everlasting Life is waiting by the Christian example you live. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray we are examples of You LORD. LORD from Psalm 10:1, I chant, “Why, LORD, do You stand afar and pay no heed in times of trouble?” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Forever King allows self-will to know not what is in store- Psalm 10
Are troubles ignored?
Even forgotten as bored?
Lost treasures are stored
We still ask God for more
He seems to be far away
Troubles come as we pay
God ensures life each day
Why is important to hear Him say
Worry not of the wicked who boast
I will make sure they end up like toast
They may have had the scorn to loathe
Schemes cunning their end will croak
Listen not when they God cares not
Self-will succeeds ignorance cares not
Sneering at misfortune helpless they are not
Secret ambush look concerned they are not
David screams aloud to our LORD
Please scorn them and forget not the poor
Sorrow and misery the matter You never ignore
Orphans survive while the wicked is shown hell’s door
Forever King allows self-will to know not what is in store
Day Eleven Psalm Eleven
The LORD said to Moses: Speak to the whole Israelite community and tell them: Be holy, for I, the LORD your God, am Holy. Leviticus 19:1-2
The LORD tests the righteous and the wicked, hates those who love violence. Psalm 11:5
Jesus said, “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Heavenly Father, for He makes His sun rise on the bad and the good, and causes rain to fall on the just and the unjust.” Matthew 5:43-45
While the LORD hates violence, He surely loves a person who can forgive those who strike you physically, mentally or even spiritually. God asks us all to dig really deep into our souls and offer the other cheek as well being content in Christ not deficient being disgusting in death’s sinful desires. No, God asks us to be Holy in His Truth abiding in the faith, hope and love of righteousness sharing Charity in the Salvation only Jesus can offer to know peace, passion and purpose.
We must all concede that God will sustain life on all sides of right and wrong giving us a reason to offer peace in the midst of pestilence and persecution. This is our fervency of living surrendered abiding in His Word daily to sustain our passion’s call. Once you find and know His Purpose for your life, you are willing to submit to the love of obedience no matter the trial or tribulation we will all encounter. This life is filled with an overwhelming peace by always placing God First living humble in holiness. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray to always turn the other cheek for peace LORD.
LORD from Psalm 11:7, I chant, “The LORD is just and loves just deeds; the upright will see His face.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Deeds just He loves upright know His Fame- Psalm 11
Refuge David would take
Fleeing not for a bird’s sake
Mountains the wicked fake
Arrows shoot the heart’s face
Destroyed foundations lay
Do for the just one do, Obey?
Temple of the LORD will stay
Throne in Heaven we pray
Adam we all can relate
Children we are to state
Since the beginning of time’s escape
The test God gives all to our face
Wicked and righteous tested same
Our LORD won’t play the wicked’s game
Hating violence brimstone fiery He rains
Cup allotted wind scorching without blame
Deeds just He loves upright know His Fame

Day Twelve Psalm Twelve
If you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the Truth. Wisdom of this kind does not come down from above but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every foul practice. Jms 3:14-16
They tell lies to one another, speak with deceiving lips and a double heart. Psalm 12:3
The Love of God feels no jealousy, no rivalry giving off no false spirituality for this type of love remains forever earthly and demonic “where jealousy and selfish ambition exist.” God does not lend to disorder but lends Truth by humility void of pride where we are willing to give as God does until there’s nothing more to do but live in absolute faith hopeful in prayer proclaiming the surrendered joy of living in Charity’s arms of safety and peace.
We as men, women and children of faith place the Glory of God First to be His arms and legs of Salvation walking and holding the Children of God without hesitation seeing not colors or smells of sin but the beauty and joy of God’s creature storing nothing but love. We are His Love as much as you are your own will until the day comes that you speak no more in false double hearted desires but only in the giving words of Truth’s actions and deeds of God’s Will. God’s love is everything your life will be including the disorder that you couldn’t see was God’s Way of saying learn from He what to be. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray not to speak of jealousy living by a heart of Truth. LORD from Psalm 12:6, I chant, “Because they rob the weak, and the needy groan, I will now arise,” says the LORD; I will grant safety to whoever longs for it.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
LORD of Justice Assured by Faith we Display- Psalm 12
Psalm 12 will delve
Eighth is upon the shelve
David’s Psalm does tell
Justice of God we’d smell
Loyalty seems far vanished
Faithful children of men manage
Telling lies to create their advantage
Heart double lips receiving death’s carnage
Cut them off LORD lips deceiving
Tongues boastful nothing conceiving
Over us they say will lord our lips a speaking
Prevailed in deception not God’s Truth receiving
Groan do the needy robbed by they
Who take advantage of the weak as easy prey
Arising the LORD helps who long for Him each day
Sure promises purified seven times as silver to obey
Always protect us the LORD was asked by David that day
Writing Psalm 12 to ask for justice he would pray
Wicked do roam extolled shamelessly they say
Men who were children side every they will pay
LORD of Justice Assured by Faith we Display
Day Thirteen Psalm Thirteen
So submit yourselves to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Humble yourselves before the LORD and He will exalt you. James 4:7, 10
I trust in Your mercy. Grant my heart joy in Your Salvation, I will sing to the LORD, for He has dealt bountifully with me! Psalm 13:6
Whoever receives one child such as this in My Name, receives Me; and whoever receives Me, receives not Me but the One who sent Me. Mark 9:37
The submission to God’s Plan for your life takes practice where opening your Bible daily is not a cliché but an active part of your learning and obedience to God’s Will. We can’t escape the Will of God only be circumstances of His Truth created by self-will to experience excess and envy or moderation and miracles allowing faith, hope and love to fulfill Charity’s need. In Him you can “resist the devil” by humility enjoying righteousness in His Truth not raunchiness in the devil’s temptation. You must Trust in His mercy finding in your heart the Salvation received in He Who sent Him.
Our Father gives us life to sustain life allowing freedom of death’s will to come from His Plan for you. Follow the lead of James; “submit yourselves to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Humble yourselves before the LORD and He will exalt you.” You will feel His exaltation in the most amazing moments your life will encounter. The moments of giving naturally where receiving returns in an instant. Such is love. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray we submit to your Plan LORD. LORD from Psalm 13:4, I chant, “Look upon me, answer me, LORD, my God! Give light to my eyes lest I sleep in death.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Mercy Trusted Bountifully No Salvation Fight- Psalm 13
Thirteen may seem off
David would lament he fought
The Psalm asking why he cannot
See God’s face never has he forgot
Long how will it run its race?
Me forgotten seems to have taken place
Soul carries sorrow heart of grief David complained
Over me a triumph rings His answer was ordained
Death is sleep without Light
Prevailed enemy in sight
Rejoicing foes have the right
If downfall David’s plight
Mercy Trusted Bountifully No Salvation Fight
Day Fourteen Psalm Fourteen
The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” Their deeds are loathsome and corrupt; not one does what is good. Psalm 14:1
Instead you should say, “If the LORD wills it, we shall live to do this or that.” James 4:15
We want to know the people we encounter will be for the One Who takes away the sin of the world but in reality we come to encounter people across all planes of humanity who are neither for or against not understanding the need to be Saved to exist as I have learned in absolute peace to never resist. Many around you need the presence of God just by the thoughts, actions and deeds you give in every aspect of your life. The ones who are lacking God must feel Him in your practice, prayer and proclamation liberated by Truth to share the tranquility given to every soul that accepts His Divinity.
Here, there are no falsehoods, misrepresentations or fabrications to tell from untruths lived by envy’s desire or mistakes created. No we must love the life we have forgiving the past we regret living the present by Love’s right of His Will to overcome self-will instantaneously free. When we can forgive anything that has happened in our past and say I’m sorry for disappointing those who love you, then we can feel the Will of God by the obedience to our practice, prayer and proclamation to live in Truth’s peace. The peace that died for you and me to Rise again Eternally Free. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray to live Your Will LORD. LORD from Psalm 14:4, I chant, “Will these evildoers never learn? They devour my people as they devour bread; they do not call upon the LORD. ” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
People restored by the LORD not sinful lust- Psalm 14
Heart as a fool
God not their tool
Loudly says there is none
Corrupt deeds loathsome fun
Heaven looks upon men
Children are seen for where all have been
Wise is one who sees a child to defend
God will seek all to comprehend
Perverse ones gone astray
Good is what not one would stay
Learn never evildoers play
Bread devoured of those who we pray
Fear then reason good God hears the just
Refuge by the poor one who does trust
Come will the Salvation creating much fuss
People restored by the LORD not sinful lust

Day Fifteen Psalm Fifteen
Whoever walks without blame, doing what is right, speaking Truth from the heart; Who disdains the wicked, but honors those who fear the LORD; Who keeps an oath despite the cost. Psalm 15:2, 4
You have condemned; you have murdered the righteous one; he offers you no resistance. James 5:6
Keep salt in yourselves and you will have peace with one another. Mk 9:50d
When you look back over history, you may ask yourself why martyrs offered no resistance when put to death or tortured in so many unspeakable ways it just blows your mind. Of course, even in today’s world there are lives being violated by the judgment others put on people in such depths of wanting to murder the “righteous” honoring not life’s call of faith, hope and love of Charity’s Truth. We have seen problems in the Church too by the intolerance of ideas that caused people to think “outside the Bible.”
There is a need for people to understand the Bible caused these martyrs to embrace peace by the New Covenant of love. Here, we find the reasons why Jesus died for all generations wiping the death and destruction of human’s selfish consumption of lust, envy and greed. Jesus puts peace in your heart by Love abiding in Truth. Jesus as One with the Father Who left the Spirit in the heart of all. I believe as it is written, “Whoever acts like this shall never be shaken” remaining salted for Charity’s love. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray we are salted in Truth abiding in Your Word. LORD from Psalm 15:3, I chant, “Who does not slander with his tongue, does no harm to a friend, never defames a neighbor.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Shaken Never Shall Act In God Never Alone- Psalm 15
David asks who can enter Your tent
Mountain so holy who may climb?
Looking back over a life that’s spent
Forgetting God said you’d always be mine
To enter the tent blames none to walk
Encourages right despite oath kept cost
Harming not a neighbor or friend to stalk
Defaming not honor wicked disdained a loss
Interest none for money loaned
Nothing in bribes you call your own
Innocent accepts the love of God shown
Shaken Never Shall Act In God Never Alone
Day Sixteen Psalm Sixteen
You will show me the path to life, abounding joy in Your presence, the delights at Your Right Hand forever. Psalm 16:11
Indeed we call blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of the perseverance of Job, and you have seen the purpose of the LORD, because “the LORD is compassionate and merciful.” James 5:11
James 5:9-12, Psalm 16 & Mark 10:1-12
Letting go and letting God be the reason we live gives us the complete setting of living for God First. He will be your joy by the practice, prayer and proclamation of living for His Truth and not that of the world. James reminds us today to persevere by this purpose the LORD sets all humanity on propelling forward to obtain the righteousness of knowing His Word as your life’s guide. Ultimately, you are the only one who can decide to follow the Way to heaven or to hell by this surrender to His life of faith, hope and love of Christ’s Charity leading the LORD to always be “compassionate and merciful.”
When I was a boy, I’d think of finding happiness in living for myself never thinking God had anything to do with my success or failure in life. Speaking to my oldest son yesterday, I again asked for forgiveness of being so selfish as he grew and I wanted him to know how sorry I was for not placing God First as a young man entering the Navy to simply survive. I wanted him to know that by placing God First, I wanted to be remembered as giving my all to giving faith, hope and love of Charity to make up for the sin I lived well into my forties. Indeed, I have persevered by this love of God’s Truth to live blessed as an example of His Purpose. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray to persevere by our practice, prayer and proclamation of Your Truth. Greg Bishop has our never-ending prayers. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. LORD from Psalm 16:9-10a, I chant, “my heart is glad, my soul rejoices; my body also dwells secure, For You will not abandon my soul.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Rejoicing soul secure in God to believe- Psalm 16
Unknown Miktam word
Not a soul seemed they understood
Maybe a love honored as they should
David has his own beautiful neighborhood
Good only comes from the LORD in Him
Refuge David took to avoid sin
Delight in Holy Ones to win
The delight of Truth is life to begin
Libations of blood will not pour out
Nothing for gods they seem to pout
No name upon his lips to shout
Destiny secure David’s allotted cup rout
Inheritance pleasant by the voices indeed
Measured out for David to conceive
Counsel from the LORD for his every need
Rejoicing soul secure in God to believe
Day Seventeen Psalm Seventeen
Keep me as the apple of Your Eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings. Psalm 17:8
Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The fervent prayer of a righteous person is very powerful. James 5:16
When Jesus saw this he became indignant and said to them, “Let the children come to me; do not prevent them, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Amen, I say to you, whoever does not accept the Kingdom of God like a child will not enter it.” Mark 10:14-15
As you may tell, I’m running late today because I was traveling to Gainesville to see my good friend turn 52 at a big birthday bash he held where at least 100 or more showed up to celebrate his love of life. I talked to old friends who are struggling with accepting the Kingdom of God as a child denying by the unwillingness to educate themselves. I do admit that I replied their ultimate destination may be a bit warmer than mine. The response was harsh but I was undeterred and confident and I felt the Spirit of Truth illuminate my thoughts calmly creating dialogue as I was unwilling to participate in a debate.
The party was for the man I’ve prayed for often each day for over a year I believe continually in my study’s prayer area. His name is Greg Bishop and he’s been fighting the dreadful “C” for three years. Now in his bones, I ask for fervent prayer to keep lifted to in strength and peace to let his regiments work and heal him in God’s Holy Name. I know James is right when he wrote, “The fervent prayer of a righteous person is very powerful.” So pray and pray some more confessing sins in Christ to implore His Truth where God will see you as the apple of His Eye. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray to live in fervent prayer. LORD from Psalm 17:15, I chant, “When I awake, let me be filled with Your presence.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Eye of the apple wings of shadows to implore- Psalm 17
Psalm seventeen asked dearly for
Attacked unjustly God not to ignore
Justice swiftly only in the LORD
Eye of the apple wings of shadows to implore
Day Eighteen Psalm Eighteen
So the LORD rewarded my righteousness, the cleanness of my hands in His sight. Psalm 18:25
Thus should one regard us: as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. First Corinthians 4:1
No one can serve two masters. He will either hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. Matthew 6:24
We find the joy of practice by surrendering to His Word accumulating righteousness for the Sake of faith, hope and love of Charity’s Salvation. Truly I would simply call us as Paul described being “servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God” taking practice upon our thoughts, actions and deeds as the air we breathe enticing training as the pleasure we survive by.
My obedience to this surrender is what I proclaim in brevity each day as His Will of loving His Word. My conciseness of Christ comes in a short five minute plan that allows you to practice daily the prayer God asks us to live by the Word He gives us to mimic remembering the New Covenant of Love Christ gave to the world overcame all intolerance allowing diversity to ultimately meet the Maker judging not the sinner by us but praying for the sin to be put in its place by God and God alone.
Here, we learn two masters can never be served for the devotion of one will dedicate desperation to despise the other as some sort of call of duty. Accept the Truth of Christ’s Salvation by the profession you live serving God First or mammon living the will of self to contend. We know when we accept the Will of God by our practice, prayer and proclamation; we can live Spirit-led, God-inspired and Christ-fed! Amen.
Let us pray: Dear LORD, we pray to be an obedient servant. LORD from Psalm 18:21, I chant, “The LORD acknowledged my righteousness, rewarded my clean hands.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Righteousness acknowledged recompense free of pain- Psalm 18
Rescued he sang
David would clang
Instruments to bang
Fifty one verses he rang
Victory was his
David would complete
His anointed to live
His Rock exalted the weak
Way of God unerring
Refined promise fulfilled to gain
Light and shield of Salvation
Righteousness acknowledged recompense free of pain
Day Nineteen Psalm Nineteen
The fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever. The statutes of the LORD are True, all of them just; More desirable than gold, than a hoard of purest gold, Sweeter also than honey or drippings from the comb. Psalm 19:10-11
In this you rejoice, although now for a little while you may have to suffer through various trials, so that the genuineness of your faith, more precious than gold that is perishable even though tested by fire, may prove to be for praise, glory, and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. First Peter 1:6-7
Jesus, looking at him, loved him and said to him, “You are lacking in one thing. Go, sell what you have, and give to [the] poor and you will have Treasure in Heaven; then come, follow Me.” Mark 10:21
It takes a long time for someone to be raised in Christ seeing only the sweetness Jesus gives by Salvation can sometimes be hard to taste. The trials of life take us on paths that we somehow believe prevents us from Truly knowing Jesus. I have come to the point where I want to share Him in everything I do by the consecration He asks us to see by saying of Yes to Truth in every aspect of your life. I have learned to rejoice in Christ even more during the trials because I know the peace He has given by the clothes I wear or more importantly the words I use in the thoughts I center around placing God First.
I noticed this walking the mall in Altamonte Springs, Florida with my 15-year-old son Jeffrey Steven last Saturday. I have a t-shirt that has the picture of Jesus in pencil depicting Him looking to the sky. I began to notice more-and-more people were catching sight of the picture as we past and I began to hum lightly in a hymn of praise, “His Name is Jesus.” People frowned and smiled as a young man in his early twenties came up and said, “Awesome shirt!” “Thanks Brother. God Bless you!” I replied. This feeling of peace is more desirable than gold seeking only the “Treasure in Heaven” promised by following He Who created the world. Who was. Who is. Who always will be. Amen.
Please bow your heads and hold your hands as one and pray with me: Dear LORD, we pray to seek only the Treasure offered in Heaven by the Truth we live for You. LORD from Psalm 19:15, I chant, “Let the words of my mouth be acceptable, the thoughts of my heart before you, LORD, my rock and my redeemer.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Eye enlightening wisdom Light- Psalm 19

Day Twenty Psalm Twenty
Now I know the LORD gives victory to His anointed. He will answer him from the Holy Heavens with a strong arm that brings victory. Psalm 20:7
Like obedient children, do not act in compliance with the desires of your former ignorance but, as He who called you is Holy, be holy yourselves in every aspect of your conduct, for it is written, “Be holy because I [Am] Holy.” First Peter 1:14-16
When I speak of righteousness, I speak of God’s call to be “Holy.” This is not pride or the feeling of superiority but that of honesty and humility where the feeling of peace is overwhelmingly the faith, hope and love of obedience fulfilling your surrender to sharing Christ’s Salvation. We are called to be “His anointed!” Amen! The answers of grace upon those who believe come in constant revelations of life’s purpose embracing Charity void of ignorance.
The breath you take is the victory of living in Truth where we honor the Creator of the air we survive from. Many times in our life we feel the pull from desires of selfish needs because we were uneducated on the Way of peacefulness gained by living in compliance with God’s Word. Remember in your practice you will find a humble desire to pray about every thought, action and deed to live in love of Charity’s Truth living not ignorant but holy as your Father in Heaven is Holy. Amen.
Please bow your heads and hold your hands as one and pray with me: Dear LORD, we pray to live holy as You are Holy. LORD from Psalm 20:5, I chant, “Grant what is in your heart, fulfill your every plan.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
You LORD called upon to answer his right- Psalm 20
A psalm of the people
Chanting to God for help
God of Jacob to mingle
King David your defense
Support from all sides
Sanctuary or Zion will do
Offerings graciously remembered
Plan of your heart’s rescue
God and His Name will be honored
Banners rose from Heaven on high
His Arm of Strength granted victory
You LORD called upon to answer his right
Day Twenty-One Psalm Twenty-One
Your hand will find all your enemies; Your Right Hand will find your foes! Psalm 21:9
For our sake He made Him to be sin who did not know sin, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. Second Corinthians 5:20
But when you give alms, do not let your left hand know what your right is doing, so that your almsgiving may be secret. And your Father who sees in secret will repay you. Matthew 6:3-4
When we live in God, in Christ, we live every moment for His glory. We find moreover the Truth drives us to live for Charity in so many aspects of life living works in every second we think, act or provide an example of God’s use utilized for His faith, His hope and His love. We must allow God to be God and find the enemies He lays judgment on and not the pretentions others inflict upon our good judgment. We are not to judge as much as we are to embrace sinners by prayerful acts of humble love.
We must learn to love the sinner and despise the sin “so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” I dedicate my life in a consecrated fashion as requested by God to show example of practice, prayer and proclamation in every breath I take to live His Will of Salvation granted to others by the actions you show in Him. God doesn’t make it hard to give and easy to deny without some sort of sacrifice to reward you in secret many times over. I’m discovering this reward is more than any amount of money you give away in secret. The reward is a grace that gives you peace. What you find in secret share openly by the practice, prayer and preaching of His Saving Grace. Amen.
Please bow your heads and hold your hands as one and pray with me: Dear LORD, we pray to let You judge as we live the righteousness of Christ for Truth. LORD from Psalm 21:7, I chant, “You make him the pattern of blessings forever, You gladden him with the joy of Your face.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Sung psalm of a Davidic future Son Never to Lose- Psalm 21
To live in thanksgiving
Was David’s Victory Truth
Psalm twenty-one beginning
Vitality’s success in peace we choose
Sung psalm of a Davidic future Son Never to lose
Day Twenty-Two Psalm Twenty-Two
In You our fathers trusted; they trusted and You rescued them. Psalm 22:5
Whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My Sake will Save it. Luke 9:24
We return to the theme of trust today as we look back over history to see the trust different generations placed in God’s Commandments. The Commandments as Moses proclaimed to the people in Deuteronomy 30:15-16 set forth the Way humanity would begin the walk to a New Covenant one day forgiven by a Cross of Redemption but warrants just as much adherence to by the Promise God makes to all people of blessings and grace to know Love’s peace.
“I have today set before you life and good, death and evil. If you obey the Commandments of the LORD, your God, which I am giving you today, loving the LORD, your God, and walking in His Ways, and keeping His Commandments, Statutes and Ordinances, you will live and grow numerous, and the LORD, your God, will bless you.”
Jesus trusted in the Father dying on the Cross of absolute Salvation bringing to the world faith, hope and love in Charity denied or accepted the Cross was our symbol of Redemption that would never die or fade away repeated slowly as we pray. This Trust endured the pain of a thousand knives slicing sin infinitely across all planes of humanity’s history as well as future generations allowing each of us to place the Christ’s trust in our moment-by-moment thoughts of Truth feeding us faith, hope and love of Charity’s all. We recognize the old in the New of Christ trusted and lost in Him. Amen.
Please bow your heads and hold your hands as one and pray with me: Dear LORD, we pray to trust our life lost in You LORD. LORD from Psalm 22:31, I chant, “I will live for the LORD; my descendants will serve You.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Abandoned why LORD all would forever hear- Psalm 22
Twenty second psalm shouts that sear
The dawn of a new day called as a deer
Alluding to the Passion when Christ called in fear
Abandoned why LORD all would forever hear
Hands pierced feet would bleed
Foretold here in David one day to believe
Bones counted as lots cast for garments received
Strength came from the Father Who eternally conceived
Day Twenty-Three Psalm Twenty-Three
The LORD is my Shepherd; there is nothing I lack. In green pastures He makes me lie down; to still waters He leads me; He restores my soul. He guides me along right paths for the Sake of His Name. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff comfort me. You set a table before me in front of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Indeed, goodness and mercy will pursue me all the days of my life; I will dwell in the House of the LORD for endless days. Psalm 23
Is this not, rather, the fast that I choose: releasing those bound unjustly, untying the thongs of the yoke; Setting free the oppressed, breaking off every yoke? Is it not sharing your bread with the hungry, bringing the afflicted and the homeless into your house; Clothing the naked when you see them, and not turning your back on your own flesh? Then your light shall break forth like the dawn, and your wound shall quickly be healed; Your vindication shall go before you, and the glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard. Isaiah 58:6-8
Searching for an answer when the answers are clear wondering the earth establishing fear only by the want of God can humanity truly steer the love of life as surrendered holding on to what is so dear. This is a choice in the manner of free will established by the Creator even if your still where thoughts of God garner an Eternal Life thrill unless you choose flesh over the Spirit that fills your life with nil as one young singer sang it’s like swallowing a jagged little pill.
We must choose Spirit over every little hill abiding in Truth never lying still to know healing lacking nothing releasing every evil blame caring for the lonely giving shelter to the insane turning not on your own flesh humanity is our name. Give Him obedience as He restores your soul taking up kneeling to pray as you know walking amongst death without even a show of how evil changes all allowing people not to grow for goodness of God’s mercy seeks the needs of the low you know the ones who never say no wanting eternally the home above known as the Great Show. Amen.
We pray for all who listen or read my words are drawn to You LORD and Your Word. Lonely no more free to cry or laugh never to deny the Truth to see love and hope to abide in Christ’s Salvation. We pray for humanity to hear the call of God so dear ending the fear living healed from strife, anger and greed praying as I am now down on my knees. Closing to thank all as I kneel to pray for faith, hope and love to always come your way in a rhyme and rhythm to practice, proclaim and pray. Close friends call out in love to say; place God First and your prayer God will obey. Amen.
Prayer Life to Know the House of the LORD- Psalm 23
Pastures of green flowing honey galore
Restoring the Truth we cannot ignore
Soul lacking nothing even in death’s ugly gore
Sake of the Name Mercy and Goodness always to implore
Prayer Life to Know the House of the LORD
Day Twenty-Four Psalm Twenty-Four
Who may go up the mountain of the LORD? Who can stand in His Holy place? “The clean of hand and pure of heart, who has not given his soul to useless things, what is vain.” Psalm 24:3-4
You shall be like a watered garden, like a flowing spring whose waters never fail. Isaiah 58:11b
I can feel the presence of God in my thoughts by the obedience to His Word daily wishing not for vanity in extravagance of excess but that of prayer in the faith, hope and love of purity. Our human weakness will cause us to sin over-and-over again until we reach the point of saturation living at death’s door. This feebleness is something that never leaves us reminding myself all Saints of Old describe the dark night of the soul inflictions that draw us out of Communion with our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ.
If we profess with our lips His Salvation, we find less chances to sin abiding in saying I’m sorry often to surrender to God’s Way of pure love of Charity’s Call. I capitalize the CC of Charity’s Call to bring reference to Christ’s Redemption encouraging us to be ever-faithful to “the clean of hand and pure of heart, who has not given his soul to useless things, what is vain.”
I talked openly with a young teen girl about her eighth grade’s visit during her school year of people who discussed Chasity with students preparing them for high school years of change. I commented that by placing purity at the understanding of God’s Divine Will for your life, you can see God wants you to know the enjoyment of love as you have never known it before. Pure and flowing like a spring whose waters never fail. Amen.
Pray with me in reverence to purity. Dear LORD, we pray for to live a clean life sharing a pure heart. We pray you continue to teach us how to pray and be One with You LORD. LORD, from Psalm 24:10 I chant, “Who is this king of glory? The LORD of hosts, He is the king of glory.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Glory to the King Who is the LORD who frees- Psalm 24
Fidelity affirmed for admission
Psalm 24 begins with the seas
Established over rivers conditions
LORD holds all who try and appease
Place mountain holy up who can go?
Standing with the LORD to know
Heart pure hand clean to the soul
Things useless makes vanity grow
LORD will bless saving justice needs
Jacob’s God is the face a generation agrees
With such grace lifting heads of portal ancient seeds
Glory to the King Who is the LORD who frees
Day Twenty-Five Psalm Twenty-Five
To you, O LORD, I lift up my soul. Psalm 25:1
In conclusion, just as through one transgression condemnation came upon all, so through one Righteous Act acquittal and life came to all. For just as through the disobedience of one person the many were made sinners, so through the obedience of One the many will be made righteous. Rms 5:18-19
He said to Him, “All these I shall give to You, if You will prostrate yourself and worship me.” At this, Jesus said to him, “Get away, Satan! It is written: ‘The LORD, your God, shall you worship and Him alone shall you serve.’” Matthew 4:9-10
We continue our walk in the Psalms as we learn Psalm 25 derives from an acrostic poem taking each letter of the Hebrew alphabet to draw requests from God as David also tells us we are to learn from His Word by a beginning, middle and end word “aleph” placed together as the root word “to learn.” Jesus would surely know many of the Psalms as He teaches the devil in the desert He will not be tempted as telling the devil, “One does not live by bread alone, but by every Word that comes forth from the Mouth of God.”
Jesus draws His responses from the Word of God as He Himself would relay to all Prophets of Old. Looking into Deuteronomy chapter 8 verse3 as well as chapter 6 verses 13 and 16, you’ll see the Word Moses taught God’s Commandments by recognizing that we are to follow what is written in His Holy Truth as our every thought, action and deed. Jesus reminds us today we are going to be tempted by evil’s lure of flash and flair but we must remain faithful to a diet of Truth coming only from the Mouth of God. Amen.
Pray with me pondering His Word. Dear LORD, we pray to draw our life from Your Word. LORD, from Psalm 25:1 I chant, “All the paths of the LORD are mercy and Truth toward those who honor His Covenant and Decrees.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Name for the Sake of pardon we should shout- Psalm 25
Called a lament
Wailing to repent
Psalm 25 would vent
Acrostic poem of Hebrew’s alphabet tent
Verse final was intent
Throughout the psalm it sent
A message to learn a root from Hebrew it meant
Pleas ardent how loving God would prevent
Distress in treachery cause without
LORD and His Ways grace not to pout
Fidelity taught by a Savior Who is stout
Name for the Sake of pardon we should shout
Day Twenty-Six Psalm Twenty-Six
Examine me, LORD, and test me; search my heart and mind. Psalm 26:2
Take no revenge and cherish no grudge against your own people. You shall love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD. Leviticus 19:18
We must ask the LORD to search our heart and mind constantly keeping our love centered on cherished memories of life’s growth and not that of the tribulations created by lack of judgment or hanging around the wrong crowd. We must love ourselves as we love others holding not bitterness for another but joy for all life in every circumstance known to man.
Where there is sin we must illuminate sanctity for Truth be it strewed across an empty lot by homeless people or hidden behind a dumpster to find peace and shelter our Light of Christ must shine past the saturation of sin in obvious dirtiness directly over the heart living faith, hope and love for Charity’s embrace be it sharing a meal or music heard in the conversation cherished by the neighbor we hold in the honored love of Truth.
God asks us to give more of ourselves than any monetary value calculated for wages earned or goods sold in life’s wonderings or passions of growth. No, God asks us to give love as the love you give yourself. The Universal Utterings of Truth. Amen.
Pray with me as you search your heart for grudges. Dear LORD, we pray to act not on revenge but love for another as ourselves. LORD, from Psalm 26:11 I chant, “I walk in my integrity; redeem me, be gracious to me!” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Love of God’s Level House procured- Psalm 26
Me the LORD will judge
David wrote in integrity’s nudge
Trust in the LORD would never budge
Falter not was David’s love
Tested and examined
Mind and heart searched
Mingle not with wicked’s worse
Hands washed innocence proclaimed
Visiting the Altar his foot secured
Professing thanksgiving of deeds wondrous names
Love of God’s Level House procured
Day Twenty-Seven Psalm Twenty-Seven
The LORD is my Light and my Salvation; whom should I fear? The LORD is my life’s refuge; of whom should I be afraid? Psalm 27:1
If you forgive others their transgressions, your Heavenly Father will forgive you. But if you do not forgive others, neither will your Father forgive your transgressions. Matthew 6:14-15
We’ll run and run from the obvious until one day God asks us in some sort of way what are you afraid of in life- of “whom should I fear?” We fear loneliness so we create chaos without living faith. We fear to be excluded so we create disorder without living hope. We fear death so we create transgressions without living love. Not until the moment do we realize faith, hope and love becomes Charity do we begin to truly understand why we forgive to live forgiven surrendered to Truth.
Hate is something that seems so easy to harbor and difficult to let go. I would venture to say you can look back over your life and see someone even as far back as grade school to think of a wrong that never seemed to be right. The Perfection of Christ’s Salvation is the Right that overcomes all wrongs allowing you to fulfill the life Christ has in store for the Charity He asks you to live in your practice, prayer and proclamation of God’s Truth. Live forgiven by He Who forgives all to right your wrongs in His life of Right. Amen.
Pray with me to free your heart from fear to live forgiven. Dear LORD, we pray to forgive without fear. LORD, from Psalm 27:4 I chant, “One thing I ask of the LORD; this I seek: To dwell in the LORD’s House all the days of my life!” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
From enemies chide in God to abide- Psalm 27
Salvation from Light
The LORD is David’s leer
Refuge in loving right
Afraid of nothing to fear
Devouring flesh enemies
Fall and stumble
Foes encamp armies
Fear no grumble
War or not against David’s lot
Trust will stop the frightened spot
Asking only of the LORD to seek
House of the LORD to dwell for the meek
Beauty gazing in His Temple so sweet
David concealed his shelter complete
Rock so high David would confide
From enemies chide in God to abide
Day Twenty-Eight Psalm Twenty-Eight
Hear the sound of my pleading when I cry to You for help when I lift up my hands toward Your Holy Place. Psalm 28:2
When God saw by their actions how they turned from their evil way, He repented of the evil He had threatened to do to them; He did not carry it out. Jonah 3:10
Just as Jonah became a sign to the Ninevites, so will the Son of Man be to this generation. Luke 11:30
Generations upon generations have asked for and received a sign that reset sinful living that goes back further than Jonah but rests in the midst of humanity’s call? Jesus Reconciled every action of evil ever committed by every generation seemingly outweighed by the lack of shame displayed by our current generation? Is it a trickle-down effect from ages long past where respect for God and elders have virtually disappeared? Humanity as a whole as always turned away from excess openly evident in the king’s decision to immediately starting a fast upon hearing Jonah’s warning.
Today I witness respect in so many different ways that seems to confuse the results evident from kindness in a local grocery store more so the sin displayed across waves of media giving us instant gratification. Nothing seems to be worked for anymore as children and adults alike want what they want and they want it now. Fun and frolicking taking the easy way has deemed His Way something of the past as we carry His Cross high repenting to overcome the shame. The Cross is the Sign humanity can ever look to by bending at the knee calling out to God in respect of Salvation’s Truth. Jesus! Amen.
Pray with me to live repented. Dear LORD, we pray we repent and learn respect while teach surrender. LORD, from Psalm 28:6 I chant, “Blessed be the LORD, who has heard the sound of my pleading.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Works of the LORD understood not- Psalm 28
Psalm of David refuge in the Temple
Twenty-eight resting against the Ark
The Covenant seemed less simple
Wicked took no interest of Truth to heart
The Rock would not be deaf to him
Pleading was heard his cry to trace
Lifting hands to overcome sin
Deeds repaid deserved in disgrace
Works of the LORD understood not
Hands of Truth will never rebuild
Pleading sound trust can’t stop
Rejoicing hearts forever strength fulfilled
Day Twenty-Nine Psalm Twenty-Nine
May the LORD give might to His people; may the LORD bless His people with peace! Psalm 29:11
If you then, who are wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Heavenly Father give good things to those who ask Him? Matthew 7:12
There comes a peace like never felt before where Christ enters your soul to stay no matter the consequence by the surrender we find in the obedience of God’s Word. We crave His Truth we fave His Truth we are Saved by His Truth to live more alive in His Works of faith, hope and love of Charity’s fall- yes falling in love with God centers your being around God’s Will of purpose obtaining peace in life’s passions. Amen!
Here, Jesus reminds us to ask and we receive by the sweat we conceive to truly always believe God fulfills every need. We are reminded to look into the gifts we are giving to our children in excess or not deeming grace to those who ask of God First placing He above me knowing peace living free. Ask of God First and the blessing God will fall upon you to live openly for Him and Him alone.
Sometimes we must stop and talk to people who seem needy and all alone. You’ll hear them speaking while you get gas holding a sign begging for help to overcome medical heartache. Not all are seeking the quick high but relief from the approaching seconds of death by disease. I could hear him speaking about my wife’s identical sticker to mine reading aloud, “God First, all else will fall into place. “Oh yes, hallelujah!” He responded as held the very sign I just described.
A tube ran from his pants into a receptacle on his wheel chair and his smile was warm as his eyes twinkled thanksgiving. “The art of prayer comes in so many fashions,” I said aloud asking him his name. “Jeffrey spelled ‘ey’,” he replied with a smile. I dropped to my knees extending my hand and replied, “The same as my youngest son. Jeffrey,” continuing I said. “I have no money today to give you but I do have love for prayers revelation to evangelize God’s Truth. Hold my hands and pray with me.”
His response was beautiful taking my hands and praying for each other aloud. More so he thanked me for just stopping and openly praying recognizing spiritual help is more important than financial need. He spoke of his cancer and his plight releasing tension relaxing in peace. I could see him settle into his chair smiling as the conversation turned to poetry and our parting granted a hug. May the LORD give us might to speak when needed to those who need Him most asking without words receiving without cost. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to ask first of God for all we need. LORD, from Psalm 29:4 I chant, “The voice of the LORD is Power; the voice of the LORD is splendor.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Forever King blessings of peace to understand- Psalm 29
Voice of God is Power glory
Water heeds His Command
Flame is His bare forest story
Forever King blessings of peace to understand
Day Thirty Psalm Thirty
Do I find pleasure in the death of the wicked—oracle of the Lord GOD? Do I not rejoice when they turn from their evil way and live? Ezekiel 18:23
O LORD, my God, I cried out to you for help and you healed me. Psalm 30:3
You have heard that it was said to your ancestors, ‘You shall not kill; and whoever kills will be liable to judgment. ’But I say to you, whoever is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment. Matthew 5:21-22a
We must incorporate into our lives the practice, prayer and proclamation of repentance asking over-and-over again to be forgiven for we know in our hearts we are sinners of self-will grasping not that of God’s Will aligning with lustful thoughts separating us from God’s grace. God reminds us today that He does not find pleasure in death of the wicked and while many times He states through His Prophets of Old, we as a humanity didn’t believe the way of Moses could align to the Way of the New Covenant where even the anger of envy and retaliation must be forgiven by the request Christ places on our hearts in the grace of Truth stirring a revelation we can never deny again.
Yes! Once Jesus enters your heart you’ll always be conscious of this hate and love feeling in an instant drawing you closer to Him by the prayers your very thoughts become. When we begin proclaiming prayer in our thoughts, actions and deeds, we understand practice is more than reading your Bible, it’s crying out for help to our LORD and Savior living healed abiding in reconciliation shedding anger for Charity’s Truth. God allows us to live in this state of pleasure called life where accomplishment can surely give us satisfaction but the works of God’s mercy can abide and find the peace our souls yearn to know. Ultimately, death will provide a healing only Salvation can show. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to cry out saying we are sorry to live forgiven in Truth. LORD, from Psalm 30:11 I chant, “Hear, O LORD, have mercy on me; LORD, be my helper.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Memory Holy moments of anger Truth prevent- Psalm 30

Day Thirty-One Psalm Thirty-One
Into your hands I commend my spirit; You will Redeem me, LORD, God of Truth. Psalm 31:6
Love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you. Matthew 5:44b
Recalling the last breath of Jesus begins our Scripture practice of prophesies fulfilled. We look back on the very forgiving words of Jesus to “Love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you” instilling in our soul a harmonic sound of peace ringing across the heartbeat of humanity. We all want to know this kind of harmony judging not the sinner admitting as well we are all sinners of self granted by the free will wove in the very fabric of our beings.
We must admit we are weak on our own falling readily obtaining strength only by He who became weak to save the weak living strong in the forgiveness you grant yourself and ask for in calling out to God giving up your spirit to live Eternally in Truth. It’s the very Truth you feel when you truly confess a sin to avoid it learning to share your life continually with others to think, build and live Charity giving as God intended man to be loving those who hate as much as the prayer you give persecution.
A life of Christ will have those who will try and cut you out of the fabric God made us a part of. We must give of ourselves totally from sun up to sun down creating harmony by living for the God who gave us all life. This surrender gives up our spirit of self for the Spirit of Truth loving even the ones holding the knives to cut us out. By His Redemption of sin we consecrate our lives to be faith, hope and love for the lost who shove God in a drawer. By example we strengthen the fabric of Truth in Christ our LORD. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to wrap our fabric of love around Your Word to forgive and be forgiven. LORD, from Psalm 31:24 I chant, “Love the LORD, all you who are faithful to Him. The LORD protects the loyal, but repays the arrogant in full.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Majestic heaven our last righteous hoorah- Psalm 31
King David continues his lament over evil

Day Thirty-Two Psalm Thirty-Two
Blessed is the one whose fault is removed, whose sin is forgiven. Psalm 32:1
Our savior Christ Jesus, who destroyed death and brought life and immortality to light through the Gospel. Second Timothy 1:10a
Jesus came and touched them, saying, “Rise, and do not be afraid.” Matthew 17:7
Sometimes Jesus has to tell us in some sort of way that being surrendered to Him should cause you to be unafraid. Afraid not of the tongue that lashes us so or the flash and flair of sin causing you to show maybe too much skin anywhere don’t you know stunting your growth with Christ separating the Church losing His state of grace you no longer will grow. There is blessing bestowed when fault is removed forgiven sin you thought could prove some sort of manliness of excess you seemingly brood as your morals slip right off your hood as judgment looms from your self-willed curse of no good obtaining death as the breath God will refuse.
Jesus is saying to you right now, “Rise, and do not be afraid.” Vitality can be yours by the Truth you can lead repenting as the Psalmist relenting his personal greed. King David would announce over-and-over again to plead how he was sorry to God for the sin he had lived establishing true need by the Promise of God in Eternal Life where you are resting in peace and freed. So do not be afraid of what you are to say the Gospel will guide you and show you the Way of living in faith, hope and love calling on strangers to pay the surrender we live in obedience we lay. This is the life in Jesus we lead each day practicing what we preach in His Word as we pray relenting not truly unafraid. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to rise and to be unafraid in living the Gospel. LORD, from Psalm 32:5 I chant, “Then I declared my sin to You; my guilt I did not hide. I said, “I confess my transgression to the LORD,” and You took away the guilt of my sin.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Heart upright exults forgiveness of the mad- Psalm 32
Removed what’s left
LORD imputes no deceit
Spirit clean blessed retreat
Silence leads to groans repeat
Wasted bones impending defeat
Hands heavy from the LORD each day
Withering strength causing me to pay
Heat of the summer causes delay
Until sin was declared sin I would repay
Guilt removed person loyal should pray
Times of distress equal or fray
Deliverance shouts you’ll hear the king say
Instructed in Truth I will show them the Way
The horse and mule understand not
Curbed temper bridle bit does stop
Wandering off course not in a trot
Coming to you counseled eye does crop
The one wicked with sorrows many and sad
LORD gives mercy trusting to be glad
Righteous rejoice his own experience he had
Heart upright exults forgiveness of the mad
Day Thirty-Three Psalm Thirty-Three
The One who fashioned together their hearts is the One who knows all their works. Psalm 33:15
Stop judging and you will not be judged. Stop condemning and you will not be condemned. Forgive and you will be forgiven. Luke 6:37
We are reminded again-and-again not to judge regarding anyone’s private decisions but we fail to keep our opinions to ourselves relishing the opportunity to inspect someone’s life by acting as some sort of god of self-supplication not allowing and respecting the Omnipotence of God Almighty. He reminds over-and-over again we are to encourage fellow human beings in faith relishing the need to have passion in living for the Truth.
Our Creator constantly feeds our persistence of having hope providing air, food and love forever engaging the life of His Charity. Once you find His purpose for life you’ll be forever embraced in love allowing His Charity to guide your life instilling God’s passionate faith, persistent hope and purposeful love to forgive living Charity to be forgiven. As a Child of God, I relish not the actions of others I relish the act of Truth providing forgiveness without judgment help without disgust. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray we forgive without judgment. LORD, from Psalm 33:18 I chant, “Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon those who fear Him, upon those who count on His mercy.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

Day Thirty-Four Psalm Thirty-Four
The LORD is the Redeemer of the souls of His servants; and none are condemned who take refuge in Him. Psalm 34:23
The greatest among you must be your servant. Whoever exalts himself will be humbled; but whoever humbles himself will be exalted. Matthew 23:11-12
The process many think will stifle your love of life is really the refuge you need to know and experience Redemption. Redemption came from the Truth being brought to the world to grant forgiveness and lead us all in the New Covenant of Love. Think about this: sacrifice and revenge seemed to carry the servants of God for more years than we could ever imagine. In these short two thousand years, Jesus Christ has offered more faith, hope and love than all the hate and sin ever created or will be created. I think God has wanted us to reach this point of tolerance overcoming indifference judging not the sinner offering hope for the sin.
Here, we must become servants to one another calling out in trust living the works we are each called to by the Divine Plan of God’s Will. I have learned to live righteously humble by the practice, prayer and proclamation I accomplish in all things by placing God First utilizing His Word daily to invigorate my life in Truth. When God humbles your life in His Son’s Redemption, condemnation for life should truly leave your heart allowing God to be God and execute His own judgment in His own time. Whether you want to believe is the choice of self governed by the breath He gives and takes away in the time He’ll accept or deny your soul. Do you lived Redeemed? Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray we live Redemption. LORD, from Psalm 34:12-15 I chant, “Come, children, listen to me; I will teach you fear of the LORD. Who is the man who delights in life, who loves to see the good days? Keep your tongue from evil, your lips from speaking lies. Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Righteous troubles though many the LORD will eternally forget- Psalm 34

How to fear the LORD and always submit
Life in delight days good you’ll forever consent
Redeemed by Truth speaking evil lies will prevent
Righteous troubles though many the LORD will eternally forget
Day Thirty-Five Psalm Thirty-Five
They speak no words of peace, but against the quiet in the land they fashion deceitful speech. Psalm 35:20
It was not through the law that the promise was made to Abraham and his descendants that he would inherit the world, but through the righteousness that comes from faith. Romans 4:13
Joseph her husband, since he was a righteous man, yet unwilling to expose her to shame, decided to divorce her quietly. Matthew 1:19
It’s hard not to hear the words of tragedy walking through just about any home across the world. From impoverished slums of Iraq and Africa through the war-torn regions of the Middle East and throughout every electric driven town, settlement or government, you’ll hear the sounds and visions of colorful deceit drawn by the craving of stimulation of self. There are few words of peace targeted at all sectors of societal life creating laws to stifle God’s Holy Truth. God made a Promise to men like Joseph that people of Truth, faith and righteousness would inherit the world.
This righteousness and faith of Joseph secured his agreement to take in a woman who he loved fulfilling the Redemption his virtue earned the right to father the Son of the Truth of the world. Quietly Joseph was awakened by an angel in a dream to not be afraid to father a child who “will save his people from their sins.” Joseph lived a devout life where faith, hope and love would the staple his child would become. By faith we are awakened to this Truth that comes to us in the quiet moments God intends all humanity to have with Him in peace. Faith equals peace in the stillness of your soul. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray faith awakens us with Your Word. LORD, from Psalm 35:12-13 I chant, “They repay me evil for good; my soul is desolate. Yet I, when they were ill, put on sackcloth, afflicted myself with fasting, sobbed my prayers upon my bosom.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Rejoice not in the slander of your hearts- Psalm 35
David wants justice

Defense of soul’s Salvation
Malicious gloat obsessive
Evil repaid for good starvation

Rejoice not in the slander of your hearts
Give LORD the aha soul noise marks
Say not will they shamed from the start
Declared long praise on the day justice recounted hearts
Day Thirty-Six Psalm Thirty-Six
Sin directs the heart of the wicked man; his eyes are closed to the fear of God. Psalm 36:2
More tortuous than anything is the human heart, beyond remedy; who can understand it? I, the LORD, explore the mind and test the heart, Giving to all according to their ways, according to the fruit of their deeds. Jer17:9-10
Then Abraham said, ‘If they will not listen to Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded if someone should rise from the dead.’ Luke 16:31
When we turn a blind eye to sin, we avoid the Truth in so many different ways separating us from God allowing not grace to encircle our lives getting burned by the heat of the sin’s lie. Jesus explained that many a person will try and understand the human heart but only God can “explore the mind and test the heart” to truly persuade each person individually the joy of living for faith, hope and love of Charity’s call. God knows your thoughts, actions and deeds bear fruit by placing Him first in all things.
Even in the kindness of your heart where you may find the omission of information might in your eyes try and protect the insecurities of your friends and family, you’ll learn that Truth prevails every time and the need to be open and communicate decisions is the most fruitful way of saying yes to Truth and no to disgrace. Oh, there’s going to be times where decisions will know disgrace. It’s exactly in these times when we must admit our mistakes repenting in the persuasion of Redemption’s repentant call and simply say I’m sorry LORD, please forgive me. Then remember to offer remorse to all affected. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to repent often and communicate well in God’s Truth. LORD, from Psalm 36:11 I chant, “Show mercy on those who know You, Your just defense to the upright of heart.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Love Divine rules wings refuge shadows- Psalm 36
Wisdom comes from serving God
Sin rules the wicked hallows

Love Divine rules wings refuge shadows
Day Thirty-Seven Psalm Thirty-Seven
Do not be provoked by evildoers; do not envy those who do wrong. Ps. 37:1
Therefore, I say to you, the Kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people that will produce its fruit. Matthew 21:43
Provocation will lead you astray causing the Kingdom of God to be taken away from you more so in the midst of your own life where grace seems absent yet financial ability might reign. We learn and have problems understanding how the wonders of God effect all of God’s Children including the good and the bad as taught in Matthew 5:45 “for (God) makes His sun rise on the bad and the good, and causes rain to fall on the just and the unjust.” Just because a person has money from any source or means does not mean they have the Kingdom of Heaven in their midst. No, if they have self on their mind created by envy lost in lust of pride’s greed they are living without the True King.
Here, the grace of God lived in His Kingdom for Heaven on earth produces the sweetest and sourest fruit evident in the abundance seen the world over. I’ve heard we can feed the world if the world would let it feed itself. God First in all things will bear fruit in the practice, prayer and proclamation you attend to in every moment your life has to offer. Praise Him when you think. Praise Him when you pray for a drink. Praise Him as you proclaim your link to Heaven forgiven who gives and takes away the praise we yield in works we live for Him. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray not to envy or lust after evil. LORD, from Psalm 37:8-9 I chant, “Refrain from anger; abandon wrath; do not be provoked; it brings only harm. Those who do evil will be cut off, but those who wait for the LORD will inherit the earth.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Wicked prosper why heaven only knows- Psalm 37
Evil comes and evil goes

Day Thirty-Eight Psalm Thirty-Eight
I acknowledge my guilt and grieve over my sin. Psalm 38:19
Who is a God like you, who removes guilt and pardons sin for the remnant of his inheritance; Who does not persist in anger forever, but instead delights in mercy. Micah 7:18
Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I no longer deserve to be called your son; treat me as you would treat one of your hired workers. Let us celebrate with a feast, because this son of mine was dead, and has come to life again; he was lost, and has been found. Luke 15:18b-19, 23b-24a
We acknowledge sin in instant yet battle with the grief instead of celebrating with the Truth. We want God to know us but are unwilling to allow Him First place in the choices we make instead opting for the selfish desires of the heart to replace your first place choice with getting behind the front to waiver in last. Oh, we might have it all; money, car, friends… we could list endless things but that’s just it they are only things. Things God has created to sustain even the birds of the sky yet how much more will He give you if you would give your all to Him? We search for ways to deny creating the reason we die. How can we hide from God? Why does He allow us to cry?
Joy and pain create the same need to feel clean and relieved just as King David constantly acknowledged; his sin and his need for repentance. Micah like David prophesied judgment is the LORD’s repeating the call to repent in the joy of God’s goodness walking humbly in Salvation’s rest of thankful praise for the New Covenant of Love we now celebrate as Truth. Judge not for thou not be judged is God’s Will of harmony amongst the self-will He has given us to choose right or wrong gay or straight lost or found. He is our Knight to protect as He is our Jury to forgive for He is Judge as our Father. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray we acknowledge guilt and repent to affirm our love of Your Truth. LORD, from Psalm 38:10 I chant, “My Lord, my deepest yearning is before You; my groaning is not hidden from You.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Social Mental Physical Lament – Psalm 38
Wailing with grief
Sin made him weak
David not complete
To God he began to speak
Psalm 38 is this social mental physical lament
Nothing you do will truly prevent
The judgment of God His wrath’s consent
Choose goodness over past ugly offense
God First is Salvation’s Defense
Day Thirty-Nine Psalm Thirty-Nine
And now, LORD, for what do I wait? You are my only hope. From all my sins deliver me; let me not be the taunt of fools. Psalm 39:8-9
We even boast of our afflictions, knowing that affliction produces endurance, and endurance, proven character, and proven character, hope, and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us. Rms 5:3-5
Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the Will of the One who sent Me and to finish His Work.” John 4:34
I’ve heard it said anger is a good thing to have every now and then. Even Jesus showed discontent for the money changers and those who took the Temple as a place of commerce. You could say anger equals disrespect for the faith, hope and love God gives the world and thus your anger is disrespect towards your Father. Jesus never showed anything but respect for His Father repeating several times He came “to do the Will of the One who sent (Him) and to finish (God’s) Work.” The Will of God brings affliction while producing endurance where character never disappoints God by complaining.
Naturally one can react with anger in disappointment when we witness injustice, discrimination and prejudice but the one reaction I think God wants us to have about how people live openly denying God’s Word and disrespecting the Truth is the action of endurance in dialogue not destruction for God asks us not to destroy one another but lift one another up in faith, hope and love of His Truth- His Salvation- His Charity He offers as Your Will to be aligned with His. So even if you renounce God, I promise to comply with His Word educating you on God’s Will; faith, hope and love of Charity. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to not complain but sustain Your Truth to share faith, hope and love of Charity. LORD, from Psalm 39:5 I chant, “LORD, let me know my end, the number of my days, that I may learn how frail I am.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
He understands Early rants Submit acceptance Created stance- Psalm 39
Day Forty Psalm Forty
I do not conceal Your righteousness within my heart; I speak of Your loyalty and Your Salvation. I do not hide your mercy or faithfulness from (the world.) Psalm 40:11
Second Kings 5:1-15, Psalm 40 & Luke 4:24-30
As I wrote a friend today, I greet you all in Christ’s peace bidding you faith, hope and love of Charity. Today I’m reaching out to the people of faith to talk about something very dear to me these past four years and that is the Prison Ministry Kairos meaning “God’s Special Time.”
Today I wrote a friend that Christ seems to take us places we know we wouldn’t go ourselves. For me, its prison. Some years ago, well almost 30 in fact, I went to jail in an instant and I’ve never been so scared in my entire life. It was like death was more appealing than living a life of incarceration. I chose death by addiction that took me another 18 years to never accomplish because I was reborn in Christ. Now almost 9 years later I have consecrated my life to His Truth, His Salvation and entering the prison was the next step of serving Him.
“I was in prison and you visited me” really took to heart one day when I reflected on the night a steel cage was closed around me. Kairos, meaning “God’s Special Time” has allowed me to reach lost souls and many times VERY mean souls to know and live for God impacting a Prison Yard like you wouldn’t believe.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray for workers to help visit the imprisoned LORD. LORD, from Psalm 40:12 I chant, “LORD, may You not withhold Your compassion from me; May Your mercy and Your faithfulness continually protect me.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
With sin we repent from living- Psalm 40

Day Forty-One Psalm Forty-One
Blessed the one concerned for the poor; on a day of misfortune, the LORD delivers him. Psalm 41:2
By the desire to do God’s Will have I been drawn to the reality of Charity in every aspect of my life searching for the one in need realizing the one in need is everyone for everyone is in need of the faith, hope and love of God’s Truth. You can experience grace by the faith we place in our thoughts and prayers for God to give us the blessing we ask for. When you learn to stop asking for riches and begin asking for grace, every situation your life encounters is surrounded by the grace God promises all.
Here, we find hope in our actions placing God First to accomplish the Will of Truth by living God’s Word. You’ll see it in the one who smiles often normally singing out to God sometimes raising their hand in obvious praise beckoning you to join in creating the action of love in your deeds. God wants this fast-paced world to know the joy of Truth in brevity can impact your life as a whole by a life dedicated to the practice, prayer and proclamation of His faith, hope and love of Charity’s poverty-stricken souls. Be Truth to share faith in your thoughts, share hope in your actions share love in your deeds. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to live concerned for the poor. LORD, from Psalm 41:13 I chant, “In my integrity may You support me and let me stand in Your presence forever.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Promise of concern for the weak- Psalm 41
Help me heal and rebuke O’LORD
Repay by deeds I speak to seek
In integrity I open the door
Promise of concern for the weak
Life’s faith, hope and love peak
Favor for the Meek
Day Forty-Two Psalm Forty-Two
Why are you downcast, my soul, why do you groan within me? Wait for God, for I shall again praise Him, my Savior and my God. Psalm 42:12
Be on your guard and be very careful not to forget the things your own eyes have seen, nor let them slip from your heart as long as you live, but make them known to your children and to your children’s children. Deuteronomy 4:9
Amen, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or the smallest part of a letter will pass from the law, until all things have taken place. Matthew 5:18
We all have moments of being downcast wondering why our soul aches so even as we feel our own life represents God’s Commands, things around us seem to ache or groan making our soul bubble confusion. These moments of lost hope have to be the forefront of our thoughts ever vigilant placing our guard across our heart slipping not into thoughts of confusion by ignoring the Laws of God but calling out His Word and His Name over-and-over again until all things have taken place in life for you. How long will that be seems to be the everlasting questions mankind seeks to know. But why?
We know we’ll pass along just as every other living creature has believing not that God had granted the solution to sin by proving death would be overcome by the One and Only Salvation ever offered and ever will be offered to know and believe He is the One True God. We might like to be told “that was a long time ago” when people refer to the Trinity where life and death were conquered in the most difficult of situations ever imagined stealing goodness from humanity’s breath. Breathe in God’s Word daily in practice seeping your footsteps with prayer proclaiming “to your children’s children” soul’s love of faith, hope and love of Charity’s Salvation. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to be on our guard living in Truth. LORD, from Psalm 42:2 I chant, “As the deer longs for streams of water, so my soul longs for You, O God.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Soul downcast why does he find? – Psalm 42
David longed for the life of the Divine
Presence of Truth across mortal time
Temple singers of Korahites rhyme
Seeing God in the Temple Sublime
Soul downcast why does he find?
Life is deep calling the deep torrent kind
Breaking waves sweep my arms holding bind
Mercies send O’LORD as I pray to not be so blind
Downcast soul seems to be the king’s fight
Groaning aloud he obviously had the right
God he would wait Him praised every night
God and Savior overcomes every plight
Day Forty-Three Psalm Forty-Three
Grant me justice, O God; defend me from a faithless people; from the deceitful and unjust rescue me. Psalm 43:1
But if it is by the Finger of God that [I] drive out demons, then the Kingdom of God has come upon you. Luke 11:20
Once we take the presence of God seriously in our lives we recognize justice as the LORD’s and not our misguided selfish desires of retaliation or revenge but that of faith, hope and love of forgiveness instilled by the Word of God breathed in speaking Truth. Truth we ignore in faithless actions of ignorance seeing the judgment of people instead of the person as if we can judge better than the Spirits last breath? How can we become the breath of humanity without the Source of the air we breathe? We can only ignore God for so long before His Will takes you to demise of an adventure I don’t advise.
Our Walk in the Psalms thus far describes laments or cries if you will of why we ignore God but always repenting to abide in the Light and Fidelity of God’s rescued justice. As David did we too experience this desire to ask God why seeking not ignorance to rely searching for and finding God in every instance we comply. David lets us feel it’s Ok to call out to God complaining or rejoicing He expects us to do nothing less diving into works even more. So as we Walk through the Psalms in brevity’s Truth let us practice, pray and proclaim the wonders of His Name sharing without shame. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to let God be God by the works we acclaim. LORD, from Psalm 43: I chant, “Why are you downcast, my soul? Why do you groan within me? Wait for God, for I shall again praise Him, my Savior and my God.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Soul downcast again Him praised why to remain- Psalm 43
Adding numbers heavenly plane
Seven minus two her gain
Psalm forty-three may ordain
Lamenting over justice people faithless complain
Deceit travels mouth of shame
Spurn not mourning to blame
Oppression seems totally insane
Fidelity and Light guide we gain
Mountain Holy dwelling in You to abstain
God and His Altar will forever reign
Harp of praise delightful joy O God to sustain
Soul downcast again Him praised why to remain
Day Forty-Four Psalm Forty-Four
In God we have boasted all the day long; Your Name we will praise forever. Psalm 44:9
You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. Mark 12:30
Sharing the Word of God is a boast I crave in the waking hours of living not so much in an egotistical way but that of the Truth humbly imploring faith, hope and love of God’s Charity in the Salvation He gave the world. Jesus reminds us today we are to implore all things through Him grasping the joy of life in the surrender of obedient Christina living. This is a constant reason why we place God First loving Him “with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.”
When we place every ounce of strength in loving God First, we attain the grace God instills in all humanity where the need to live as faith requires searching for the ones who lack the understanding of God’s forgiveness. Here, the strength of God will come out of us to think, speak and act on the beauty of Christ’s Salvation. We must be ever diligent in providing the eyes, words and actions of Christ. People will be drawn to this grace of God in you but many will many will need you to openly proclaim His Truth to them by your practice, prayer and proclamation of His Saving Grace. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to LOVE Your Name above all else. LORD, from Psalm 44:24 I chant, “Awake! Why do you sleep, O Lord? Rise up! Do not reject us forever!” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Mercy is ours not gone- Psalm 44
Community sharing his lament
Why must we again repent?
David has given all to prevent
Did God abandon their scent?
He asked yet knew
God wasn’t through
His work must gain
Prayer to sustain
Fidelity is strong
Nothing to wrong
Us to help we long
Mercy is ours not gone
Day Forty-Six Psalm Forty-Six
In the cause of Truth, meekness, and justice may Your Right Hand show Your Wondrous Deeds. Psalm 45:5
For it is loyalty that I desire, not sacrifice, and knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings. Hosea 6:6
But the tax collector stood off at a distance and would not even raise his eyes to heaven but beat his breast and prayed, ‘O God, be merciful to me a sinner.’ Luke 18:13
We listen to the king sing a love song today to the princess of Tyre whom he will marry asking she forget about her past and become the queen of his palace taking on the role she would one day leave to return to her home carrying the Ark of the Covenant. I know, many of these words over the years have become lost to history with one theory or another rising to be forgotten once again but I see we must realize what is certain is the psalm contained the impression he would set upon the princess to create the Truth of love by God’s wondrous deeds He has shown David in his rule as king of Israel.
While the implication of being king allows for he to be called god in his psalm, this points to the representation he is given for the people he rules and the ultimate pointing of all psalms as prophesies of the Anointed One, Jesus. We are asked today to listen to the Cause of Truth acknowledging meekness and justice as the Right Hand of God to guide and support allowing His grace to instill loyalty and knowledge sharing Salvation. When we fall in love with God’s Plan for our lives, we see His Will in the practice, prayer and proclamation we live to know faith, hope and love of Charity. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to live for the cause of Truth. LORD, from Psalm 45:7 I chant, “Your throne, O God, stands forever; Your royal scepter is a scepter for justice.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Forever throne History’s peek Truth has shown Savior we greet- Psalm 45
The song of lilies
David would marry
Throne of God
Seen as his rest
David would sing
Marry the king
Acclaim is his harp
Justice he seeks
Truth arrows sharp
Cause of the meek
Truth has shown
Savior we greet
Day Forty-Seven Psalm Forty-Seven
All you peoples, clap your hands; shout to God with joyful cries. For the LORD, the Most High, is to be feared, the Great King over all the earth. Psalm 47:2-3
Jesus said to him, “Unless you people see signs and wonders, you will not believe.” The royal official said to Him, “Sir, come down before my child dies.” Jesus said to him, “You may go; your son will live.” The man believed what Jesus said to him and left. John 4:48-50
I’m feeling lost today confessing the need to take care of some business I’ve so long ago should have done. The business at hand as many may say is taking care of God in the Light of His Way not His day for His day rings loud every second of every stray thought that comes our way. Unite with Him in claps of “joyful cries” as we sing to the Most High the wonders in our eyes that abide until the day we die.
Psalm 47 is a walk back in time where court writers hear the king whine as they dine in believing God is Sublime. The beauty of God is in every little molecule we see in our midst that creates the desire we can’t resist is the sign we blindly ignore as we shut the Eternal door to Heaven allowing God to become something of a bore. The sign we want He will never give for we can’t believe the beauty you already see unable to concur in retreat. We shout our fear of God in the astonishment of signs we know we Heavenly live abiding in the wonder of grace we practice, pray and proclaim to give. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to praise in fear enjoying the wonders of God so real. LORD, from Psalm 47:9 I chant, “God rules over the nations; God sits upon His Holy Throne.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Exalted by His Mighty Hand- Psalm 47
David wrote to leaders
Psalms to acknowledge God
Praise wisdom to greet her
Korahites the 47th nod
Heritage of abided nation’s glory
King over all the land
Earth’s shields His story
Exalted by His Mighty Hand
Day Forty-Eight Psalm Forty-Eight
Like your Name, O God, so is Your praise to the ends of the earth. Your Right Hand is fully victorious. Psalm 48:11
We want to think our surroundings are invincible just as David thought the holy city of Zion would withstand all enemies. The psalm describes that the city was once thought to be unconquerable inviting the world to worship the One and Only True God of all by the Power He depicts in conquering all adversaries. Here, we find the Truth by God’s Own Design allowing free will to circumvent if but a short time the Divine Will of all humanity.
Ultimately, we are all going to feel His Right Hand “fully victorious” in the breath we push out last from the depths of a soul completing the cycle of His Providence. Whether you want to believe it or not, God owns you and every breath you take for His Truth or your own misguided selfishness. We will either praise His Name or spite His fortune for the empty pockets of shame seeking not faith, hope and love but self, greed and lust of exclusivity.
I’ve learned to listen to the breaths of souls with admiration of growth lost in the excess of such selfishness. I know how each moment in life from beginning to end affects the next breath we take for the love of Truth or lack thereof. To listen and to smile offering hope by the faith I share for Salvation. To know there is no fault in abandonment by children affected but a prayerful opportunity to practice, pray and proclaim Charity’s love of Eternal Living in Truth. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to praise when brought down to Love’s embrace. LORD, from Psalm 48:14c-15 I chant, “you may tell future generations: That this is God, our God for ever and ever. He will lead us until death.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Death leads us predictable- Psalm 48
Zion would rule invincible
David would truly note
God made him convincible
Never would he gloat
Ponder the Truth allowable
Forever living in growth
Kings anguish made preventable
Shipwrecks off the coast
Ever and ever invincible
God loved the most
Death leads us predictable
God is our Host
Day Forty-Nine Psalm Forty-Nine
My mouth shall speak words of wisdom, my heart shall offer insights. Psalm 49:4
I cannot do anything on My own; I judge as I hear, and My judgment is just, because I do not seek My own Will but the Will of the One who sent Me. John 5:30
The insights of the world are fleeting and full of pride where the discernment of Truth is wisdom taking practice to make what God considers perfect. I know, not a soul can become perfect only God, right? God asks us to be perfect as He is perfect allowing for inadequacies by the forgiveness He has always given humanity but we have failed to accept or acknowledge. The Truth does hurt but tolerance allows for goodwill to triumph over inconsistencies of self for there is not a one of us who can say we give our all to God all the time.
Somewhere along the line we fail in the needs of God as a witness who takes action of self lacking zealous attachment to Truth’s call of faith, hope and love of Charity. Just as we witness a Pope getting down on his knees to confess the sins of a leader we too should get down on our knees and ask God for the forgiveness of arrogance, jealousy or greed leading to a lack of works by the laziness our minds create in the lack of practice to create perfection. This is what God asks of all: practice what you preach to forgive as to be forgiven. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to seek wisdom by the practice of living perfect in forgiveness for You. LORD, from Psalm 49:8, 21 I chant, “No man can ransom even a brother, or pay to God his own ransom. In his prime, man does not understand. He is like the beasts—they perish.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Corruption Pit will be their home- Psalm 49
David invites the people
Confident psalm affirmed
Affirmation in God’s Steeple
Wealth perishes in death’s throne
Ransom none man withstands
Understand not in prime shone
Costly soul can never demand
Corruption Pit will be their home
Day Fifty Psalm Fifty
The God of gods, the LORD, has spoken and summoned the earth from the rising of the sun to its setting. Psalm 50:1
You do not have His Word remaining in you, because you do not believe in the One whom He has sent. You search the Scriptures, because you think you have Eternal Life through them; even they testify on My behalf. How can you believe, when you accept praise from one another and do not seek the praise that comes from the only God? John 5: 38-39, 44
Without belief in the One and Only True God then you have no life of Truth accepting folly for fame instead of searching for Spirit to remain sane. Yes, I see God as True sanity allowing for paleness in forgiveness lifting us over pain. I know it is hard for the 21st Century to identify with the Old Testament but we must realize the first books of the Bible describe the coming of God’s Only Son as the liberation God intended for such a weak being He created to be strong in the Wonder of God.
Here, we can seek the praise of mere mortals or worship the God of faith, hope and love of Charity’s Truth. Today God continues to ask us to search the Scriptures finding each time more guidance and strength to overcome and occupy the Omnipotence of His Creation. He asks us to testify to this Truth by our practice, prayer and preaching of surrender to the One and Only Authentic Eternal Life received by professing Christ is Savior and LORD that produces praise from God in graces bestowed in His Time. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to seek only Your praise LORD. LORD, from Psalm 50:16-17 I chant, “to the wicked God says: “Why do you recite My Commandments and profess My Covenant with your mouth? You hate discipline; you cast My Words behind you!” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Pretender will tattle their sacrifice lame- Psalm 50
Courts of battle
Truth His Name
David would rattle
The hypocrite’s game
Obedient faith matters
Praise you obtain
Pretender will tattle
Their sacrifice lame
Rescuer steadfast gathers
Faithful to remain
Salvation discipline honors
Eternal Life Proclaimed
Day Fifty-One Psalm-One
I will teach the wicked Your Ways, that sinners may return to You. Ps 51:15
Jesus cried out in the temple area as He was teaching and said, “You know Me and also know where I am from. Yet I did not come on My own, but the One who sent Me, whom you do not know, is True. I know Him, because I am from Him, and He sent Me. John 7:28-29
How long had I wallowed in the bowels of sin until I too came to know our LORD and Savoir Jesus Christ shedding my worries for belief allowing my preparation to share the Good News of Salvation. God asks us all to be the teacher of His Son’s New Covenant of Love that wiped out sacrifices for libations in practice, prayer and proclamation to live in His desired Will for all in Charity. The type of Charity I speak of daily where the less fortunate are roused by the Truth you touch their soul with and sustained by knowing He Who Saved the world.
We can’t change the world in an instant as God can change yours by the amending of your thoughts, actions and deeds in this same instant to methodically change a heart one soul at a time. This consecration of your life can help save some lost child of God just by a sticker on your car to the flag waving in your yard beckoning all to live a life of faith, hope and love of practice, prayer and preaching. Be encouraged to read your Bible every day as God instructs. Be encouraged to pray unceasingly over everything you do in thinking preparing your action in word and in deed. What an amazing grace to live to a life of teaching the wicked to love over hate to give instead of taking to live repentant and contrite. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray the wicked are drawn to us for conversion and healing and we live contrite. LORD, from Psalm 51:19 I chant, “My sacrifice, O God, is a contrite spirit; a contrite, humbled heart, O God, You will not scorn.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Salvation gladness restored teaching the wicked to know- Psalm 51
Mercy he asks for
Fifty one has begun
Blot past transgressions
Sins he would seek to shun
Guilt cleansed by washing
Me was David’s cry
Admitting sin of lashings
Evil done as the apple of Your eye
Guilt born motherly conception
Hyssop drips water cleaning David to grow
Wisdom sincerity True secret revelation
His life and sins clean as snow to show
Spirit steadfast humbled heart renewed within he
God created heart contrite clean to sow
Spirit willing upholds Spirit Holy constantly
Salvation gladness restored teaching the wicked to know
Day Fifty-Two Psalm Fifty-Two
Why do you glory in what is evil, you who are mighty by the mercy of God? Psalm 52:3
We learn in Psalm 52 that those who take pleasure in being arrogant because they are wealthy from power obtained abilities not from their own merits but the strength and power that only originated from God. Obviously, when we find them falling from such gloating our hearts become gladdened and our bodies find the fortitude to find more in God’s Truth to accomplish works that builds upon their failure. Redemption is more than seeing your enemy fall; Redemption is seeing your enemy repent. While we may find pleasure in seeing the evil be cast away, I beckon us to ask ourselves as Jesus did what can we do to share Salvation with the egotistical so they become builders of the Kingdom of God?
Yes, the arrogant will continue to run the world under the guise of doing what is right for the common man. The shift of good and evil seems to be riding a wave of excess caused from instantaneous gratification. Somehow someway there will be less take and more giving by the world by a sense of accomplishment and not handouts but by a common sense of work ethics and not laziness by wisdom garnered from living in Truth. The world will shift back-n-forth until punishment from the world’s gloating and excess will explode into Restoration as God sees fit. As the after effects of such an explosion sets in, we will find people who used wealth in service as well as the lowest of the lows the people who will rebuild from the fruits of the wicked life of excess. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray not gloat as much as we honor life from You LORD. LORD, from Psalm 52:3b-5 I chant, “All day long you are thinking up intrigues; your tongue is like a sharpened razor, you worker of deceit. You love evil more than good, lying rather than saying what is right.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Devoted to hope Your Name the Forgiving One- Psalm 52
David spoke of the arrogant
Refusing God’s Light
Lived not the requirement
Living a life that is right
Mighty you are by God’s command
Making the waters securing the land
Evil is what glory your life truly spans
Long days thinking deceits God will reprimand
Good and right you ignore
Lying evil you seek to implore
Tongue deceitful you laughingly adore
Uprooted by God struck down your life’s door
Fear by the righteous will eternally ensue
Laughing a reaction the righteous will do
As the evil of abundance shows obviously through
Powerful wickedness no refuge in God did they prove
Tree of olives David would become
Forever clemency flourishing mercy he won
God will be thanked by the righteous evil did shun
Devoted to hope Your Name the Forgiving One
Day Fifty-Three Psalm Fifty-Three
The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They act corruptly and practice injustice; there is none that does good. Psalm 53:2
For if you live according to the flesh, you will die, but if by the spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. Romans 8:13
When Jesus heard this he said, “This illness is not to end in death, but is for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it.” John 11:4
Jesus time-and-time again attempted to calm the fear of us mere mortals understanding by the Power of God the New Covenant God was establishing on humanity to give them life in the Spirit as One with our Father to abide in faith strengthening our hope enveloping every part of our life with love. We are frightened of death because we know not of the Spirit for we crave what the flesh craves not breathing in the Spirit by our practice, prayer and proclamation. We must learn to not be afraid of speaking to anyone, anywhere or anytime abiding what the Spirit asks of us in sharing Salvation.
I love sharing my experiences as driven by God in the Spirit each and every morning when I take my beginning waking hours with God asking Him to remain with me throughout the day ready to discuss with anyone the beauty of God’s grace of the Christ Who gives me peace by His Purpose. I may be in absolute civilian clothes and drawn to a man as I was the other day that shined the face of Christ in a simple ball cap. I literally lost my breath with joy as I approach him in grocery store parking lot reading the words “Jesus is my Boss” on his head extending my hand expressing the same. We spoke of Jesus praying together openly sharing equally the need to evangelize candidly to encourage this generation to love Truth.
I asked him if he would share with his congregation the Kairos Prison Ministry I’m leading this summer as I continue my recruiting of men of faith or lack thereof to establish the joy of sharing Christ’s love. Kairos is known as “God’s Special Time” which could not be a better way of explaining what Kairos is when going behind the walls of life’s mistakes. Guilty or innocent as we are known to find out occurs we just let God be God as we present the Truth of Community. We give them God as they beam the Name of Christ. We share how to share asking them to practice, pray and proclaim in groups as Disciples of Christ. You too can help the lifer (one sentenced to life) feeling dead in the flesh to become alive for Eternal Living in the Spirit. As God forgives, so we must teach they must forgive themselves to live forgiven. Kairos will lift you as much as the prisoners in the Spirit. Please email me if God gives you the courage to join. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray we live in the Spirit not in the flesh. LORD, from Psalm 53:3 I chant, “God looks out from the heavens upon the children of Adam, To see if there is a discerning person who is seeking God.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
No person discerning no God seeking crowds- Psalm 53
David would lament alone crying aloud
Why are God’s people so haughty and proud?
God wonders venting from the eternal heaven clouds
No person discerning no God seeking crowds
Day Fifty-Four Psalm Fifty-Four
Strangers have risen against me; the ruthless seek my life; they do not keep God before them. Psalm 54:5
When they continued asking Him, He straightened up and said to them, “Let the one among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” John 8:7
Keeping God before you requires a proactive stance of thinking of His Truth constantly allowing not the ways of the world of living in sin to affect you even if it’s just a stone’s throw away. Knowing sin is the separation from your life-line to God allows your actions to speak as if words came pouring out of your life without words rising in the air. Maybe as you walk into a mall instead of complaining about the trash you see you should pick it up. Maybe as you leave the mall you’ll hear a young lady talking to friends say, “What the hell is Palm Sunday?” And you’ll speak up and deliver a small response that’ll make them think of peace and honor of the Salivation’s Call in Jesus Christ.
The toughest thing to do is see obnoxious behavior rise up around you without exacting revenge of retaliation for even when strangers rise up God asks us to inform by sharing our practice extending prayer in the proclamation of His forgiveness to know faith, hope and love. We can’t throw the stones of judgment for the stones already line our shoes from sin’s acknowledgment falling out only by the confession of sin’s participation. We must admit and move on looking not down at the one flashing sin in your face but lifting them in prayer by actions of example of love not hate honor not insult teaching the Truth in practice, prayer and proclamation of Redemption’s peace. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to always keep You LORD before us. LORD, from Psalm 54:6 I chant, “God is present as my helper; the Lord sustains my life.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Rescued defense faithfulness evil protection-Psalm 54
Psalms are sung cries of help wanting confession
David would ask God to ease the aggression
Directing defense against all allegations
Rescued defense faithfulness evil protection
Day Fifty-Five Psalm Fifty-Five
But you, God, will bring them down to the pit of destruction. These bloodthirsty liars will not live half their days, but I put my trust in You. Psalm 55:24
He said to them, “You belong to what is below, I belong to what is Above. You belong to this world, but I do not belong to this world. That is why I told you that you will die in your sins. For if you do not believe that I AM, you will die in your sins.” John 8:23-24
We are reminded today we will die in our sins by our lack of acknowledging the One and Only True God. David called upon the LORD to exact judgment asking they be laid in a pit of destruction for the evil ones conspiring against him were nothing more than bloodthirsty liars trusting only in the sin they create by the tongues of deceit spewing false accusations of envy. Many will see your peace as a reason to disrupt your harmony spitting these same lies to try and force you to stumble in their sin.
Find the belief it takes to call on the LORD constantly relying not on the words of mere mortals but that of the Word of God we faithfully turn to each and every day to practice, pray and preach the Good News of Salvation. The reason we trust the “I AM” of the world is to live and know forgiveness as Forgiveness lives and feeds off of you. Without pardon grace can be no more. Without Reconciliation blessing cannot be accomplished through us for as one wise pastor said recently, “God won’t do a miracle that He can use you to accomplish for Him.” Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray we belong to God and not of this world. LORD, from Psalm 55:23 I chant, “Cast your care upon the LORD, who will give you support. He will never allow the righteous to stumble.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Righteous trust never fails for nothin- Psalm 55
Stringed instruments spell
Beauty of sound to dispel
The betrayal he smelled
Asked death to foretell
Breakers of oath who yell
Vindicated by death sudden
Opening earth to hell’s destruction
The lies speak of their sinful glutton
Righteous trust never fails for nothin
Day Fifty-Six Psalm Fifty-Six
I praise the Word of God; I trust in God, I do not fear. What can mere flesh do to me? Psalm 56:5
Nebuchadnezzar exclaimed, “Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who sent his angel to deliver the servants that trusted in Him; they disobeyed the royal command and yielded their bodies rather than serve or worship any god except their own God.” Daniel 3:95
What trust and determination to endure the pain of death in a fiery perish that the number seven rides high along the measures of intensity where three men of faith exclaimed Daniel 3:17-18, “If our God, whom we serve, can save us from the white-hot furnace and from your hands, O king, may He save us! But even if He will not, you should know, O king, that we will not serve your god or worship the golden statue which you set up.”
The king was so furious Daniel writes that he ordered the furnace to be heated seven-times its hottest norm of incinerating anything in an instant. We gather from the story the king would describe a fourth person dancing amongst the unbound men as the angel misting a cool layer of protection around each of them. They were safe by the Hand of God delivered as you by trusting the Truth as three go free to believe. Believe my friends God does set you free by His Word to trust in faith, hope and love of Charity. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to always trust Your Word in thought, action and deeds. LORD, from Psalm 56:14 I chant, “You have snatched me from death, kept my feet from stumbling, That I may walk before God in the Light of the living.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Stored tears life perspires- Psalm 56
Words of Hebrew
Direct their tone
Yonath elem rehoqim
Director never shown
David asks for mercy
Harshly treated son
Attackers many frightened he
God’s Word was sung
Fear not by trust
Word of Truth has won
Flesh is lust
God’s Will can’t be shun
Evil hides to ambush
Step of every desire
Wanderings of evil noted
Stored tears life perspires
Death snatched my stumbling desires
Day Fifty-Seven Psalm Fifty-Seven
God of faithfulness not lies to abide- Psalm 57
I call to God Most High, to God who provides for me. Psalm 57:3
Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever keeps My Word will never see death. John 8:51
David ran in the beginning to save his life hiding in a cave ready to defeat anyone in God’s Name. He would call out singing hymn after hymn exacting judgment by the Hand of God exercising mercy when Saul chased him into the hills finding more than relief when relieving himself in a cave; Saul found forgiveness from God’s Mercy described in His Word and lived by the soon to be King David.
Jesus too reminds us time-and-time again to keep His Word the Mystery of the Trinity created that rolled off the lips of countless Prophets instilling even to this day God’s Will used in the thoughts, actions and deeds of those who call on His Name grasping the Truth between the flash and flair of the teeth of life. When we call on His Name, God provides life without death in the last breath you breathe for Salvation. “Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever keeps (His) Word will never see death. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to keep Your Word LORD. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. LORD, from Psalm 57:2 I chant, “Have mercy on me, God, have mercy on me. In you I seek refuge.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
God of faithfulness not lies to abide- Psalm 57
Calling for mercy as he gave
Refuge in God upon his Name
Hidden in His wing shadow’s rave
Pass harm by exacting blame
Provided for he who sung loudly
Trample not your servant to be
Mercy sent in love of fidelity
Lions in my midst all agree
Down my soul does David learn to bow
Pit dug for David will fall upon them now
Steadfast is his praise singing very loud
Soul awakened harp pleases the crowd
Tower of mercy from Heaven’s high
Yourself exalted God above we confide
Appear does Your glory never shall it hide
God of faithfulness not lies to abide
Day Fifty-Eight Psalm Fifty-Eight
Then people will say: “Truly there is a reward for the just; there is a God who is judge on earth!” Psalm 58:12
If I do not perform my Father’s Works, do not believe Me; but if I perform them, even if you do not believe Me, believe the Works, so that you may realize [and understand] that the Father is in Me and I am in the Father. John 10:37-38
It’s hard to believe something we cannot see when we think of God for we truly do not put God in a correct perspective. We fail to realize God is in every instance of our surroundings from the breath we take to the waste we excrete God is in everything along the journey of life until the day He allows you to breathe your last words or thoughts of surrender or defiance. You can believe God is not in the Works of Charity created by the practice, prayer and proclamation of God’s love for us in the Word we are obedient to.
I speak of God as much as I speak to God by the breath I take exercising my thoughts in practice performing Works by using more than words of wonder but by living only for God in the just of His Salvation. I truly believe I will see His glory after death as much as I see His glory in the everything my life is for Him now in the reality of faith, hope and love of God’s only Deliverance from sin. Believe in His Works by the Works you place in the actions, thoughts and deeds of your life’s Works for His Salvation. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray in the reward for the just encouraging the lost. LORD, from Psalm 58:4 I chant, “The wicked have been corrupt since birth; liars from the womb, they have gone astray.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Blood bathed feet of rejoicing -Psalm 58
Destroy not the kingdom
Gods pick for random abuse
Violence dispensed freedom
Liars astray from birth’s recluse
Snakes venom they seethe corrupt
Liars ears of the serpent spells cunning blocked
Teeth smash O God their mark
Away flowing in the water so dark
Grass trodded away oozed snail path dissolved
Birth untimely sun doesn’t shine at all
Away the wicked wind suddenly the just watch and pray
Blood bathed feet of rejoicing just Judge reward they pay
Day Fifty-Nine Psalm Fifty-Nine
I shall sing of Your Strength, extol Your Mercy at dawn, For You are my fortress, my refuge in time of trouble. Psalm 59:17
We call out to God when we seek vindication as David would do in Psalm 59 asking God to squash the assailants Saul had ordered to destroy him by. Calling out to God in anger seems so natural yet so cliché for in the heat of any moment that we all feel we come can come to grips with the desires of God for all humanity and that’s to instill faith, hope and love into the anger subsiding with remorse and more than often a feeling of distinct embarrassment. Why we can’t control these moments of zealous anger rests in the confidence you have of the trust you place in God’s Word as much as God’s Spirit to direct your thoughts, actions and deeds.
Discipline comes from recognizing mistakes are zealous efforts to live life on our own accord thinking we know the answers as much as we know the way of serving reality with thoughts of our own truth. When I write of God’s Truth, I capitalize the “T” to emphasis God as its definition but when I speak of our truth you know the truth we think where hide our real presence of our lives I use a lower case “t” because obviously we are not God or know His Way. To serve ourselves will serve pride unless we relinquish and serve God we serve Truth we never hide.
After 42 years of fishing and selling seafood, a man told me yesterday he recalls so many times he would catch fish in asking God to fill his nets but when he thought he knew where to cast and when to reel was his own decision he would catch nil. We give God His all by practice, prayer and proclamation that serves His Purpose for His Salvation. Sin reparation was God’s gift of Truth we can accept or deny seeking or relinquishing the retaliatory thoughts of envy we must overcome to provide sights of righteousness in Charity not jealousy’s divide. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to call out in the bad and the good of life. LORD, from Psalm 59:12 I chant, “Slay them, God, lest they deceive my people. Shake them by Your Power; Lord, our shield, bring them down.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Belief of Truth just ruling will defend- Psalm 59
David would pray to save him
David would pray to pout
David would pray for revenge of sin
David would pray aloud
Two parts of the psalm share this
The prayer of avengement contends
The prayer of God’s strength his wish
Belief of Truth just ruling will defend
Day Sixty Psalm Sixty
Give us aid against the foe; worthless is human help. We will triumph with the help of God, who will trample down our foes. Psalm 60:13-14
The Lord GOD has given me a well-trained tongue, That I might know how to answer the weary a Word that will awaken them. Morning after morning He awakens my ear to hear as disciples do. Isaiah 50:4
The crowds preceding Him and those following kept crying out and saying: “Hosanna to the Son of David; blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.” Matthew 21:9
We want to find the swaying palm tree of success in our walk with God not the littering of our souls across the palm frons of life we walk across as Jesus did when He entered the city of Jerusalem literally described as shaking it to its core. We think the reason we follow Jesus is to know this ease of life’s success not grasping the frons strewed all around us in the meek and homeless or the sick and dying. “Worthless is human help” gives us reasons to grasp His Word to allow the training we all need to live and breathe the Word of God as gestures leading to works knowing and sharing Salvation.
They all praised His entry into Jerusalem with frons and cloaks expecting the Christ to exact Salvation. In Hebrew they shouted in the streets “Hosanna to the Son of David; blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest” indicating they expected Jesus to endow Redemption immediately knowing not they’d shout Crucify Him just a quick. Miracles, knowledge and Resurrection wasn’t enough to convince many Jews but over 2000 years later Hosanna in the Highest still means the same thing of wanting forgiveness with Eternal Life. Live the Hosanna with lifted hands and confident shouts of Salvation’s Call. His Name is Jesus! Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray for well trained tongues to shout Hosanna in the Highest to You LORD. LORD, from Psalm 60:3 I chant, “O God, You rejected us, broke our defenses; You were angry but now revive us.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Worthless human praise- Psalm 60
Feeling totally rejected
Revived proof expected
Split earth injected
Cracks repaired matches
Wine staggered latches
Revered banner raised
Refuge escape hatches
Worthless human praise
God’s Triumph tramples
Foes on parade
Victory over shambles
Confidence renewed conveyed
Day Sixty-One Psalm Sixty-One
Hear my cry, O God, listen to my prayer! Psalm 61:2
Sing to the LORD a new song, His praise from the ends of the earth: Let the sea and what fills it resound, the coastlands, and those who dwell in them. Isaiah 42:10
We often wonder if God is really hearing our prayer or not waging battles in our heart and soul against decisions that seem innocent enough but in the end calling out to God for help. The world around you aligns with the natural rhythm of God’s Will by the Divine Design He put into place from the beginning of time. The Mystery of One became Three to guide humanity allowing a release from sin that naturally wells up inside of us causing our bowels to call out to God unpretentiously seeking censure of life’s demands.
When we sing a new song for God, we sing the songs of Salvation wanting nothing more than a heart that will listen stilling our soul as the sea noticed when we place our head under the water hearing the wonders of His creation. We must trust He hears every prayer we mutter aloud or within the stillness of our souls yearning for Truth. There is mutual attention given by you the prayer warrior in known prayers or prayers from the heart expressing a conversation of faith, hope and love of Truth.
What’s your favorite prayer? Maybe it’s the one you pray before going to bed or the one you ask for protection or maybe you love to just talk to God for in this prayer we most often do as we think, act and live surrendered obedient to His Call. It’s not tough to call your every thought prayer unless your thoughts invoke selfish acts of fulfillment. Pray aloud to forgo the proud feeling of success aligning with practice, prayer and proclamation of Truth’s imploration. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray aloud in the call of Truth. LORD, from Psalm 61:9 I chant, “I will duly sing to Your Name forever, fulfill my vows day after day.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Door of death prayer- Psalm 61
Door of death prayer
Cry to God he wailed
Life endings scare
Saved by grace he failed
Refuge in God of Truth
Wings shelter my pain
Vows I fulfill as proof
Heritage generation reign
Forever preserved to say
Fidelity and love Your Way
Death has a door we pray
Preserved forever we are to stay
Day Sixty-Two Psalm Sixty-Two
My soul, be at rest in God alone, from whom comes my hope. Psalm 62:6
The world around you wants you to have hope in technology created by imagination placing trust in self-guided measures of fate. The word fate becomes evident after the fact but I beg to differ that God asks us to place fate in the here-and-now of living searching daily the Scripture by devout practice surrendered to a life of prayer. Allow God to be first in every thought, action and deeds rolling off your lips as much as your infinite thoughts of a mind in love with the Truth of Salvation.
Here, I believe we find God’s Will protecting your life as an invisible fortress allowing His Mercy to cover the steps you take to proclaim naturally the faith, hope and love He instills in the world. Giving everything to God takes away the need of worry because in our human weakness of worry we honor not forgiveness we honor selfish wants sharing not the needs of pity until living compassionate by showing true tolerance for all mankind. Allow your soul to “rest in God alone” where our only true hope comes. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to rest our hope in You LORD alone. LORD, from Psalm 62:9 I chant, “Trust God at all times, my people! Pour out your hearts to God our refuge!” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Man repaid from his sting- Psalm 62
He continues his melody
The real reasons of psalms
David liked to sing aloud to God
As if he were resting in his palms
David felt the joy of music
The hope he placed in God
Rang clear void of lying nooses
People strung in their slurs aloud
God is trust loving songs
Hymns of refuge from lies
Breath is mortal’s illusion
Two things we must confide
God is strength we sing
Mercy we can’t deny
Man repaid from his sting
Deeds we lived to abide
Day Sixty-Three Psalm Sixty-Three
O God, You are my God—it is you I seek! For You my body yearns; for You my soul thirsts. Psalm 63:2
The Lord GOD is my help, therefore I am not disgraced; Therefore I have set my face like flint, knowing that I shall not be put to shame. Isaiah 50:7
As I sit down to study Scripture each morning, I look up at the Cross I placed above my head on a book shelf where it fell against the molding leaning to the left in a perfect balance as I say to my self, “God I place my worries at the foot of Your Cross.” I know how hard it is to do this but God asks us to simply come to Him as He comes to us without hinder. God asks us to live in His grace as the real desire He intends for the world exacting judgment on His terms not ours and even though we know this we still sin and seek forgiveness.
Many a time people will live in sin justifying the act as necessary to survive or fulfill desires not appreciated by the ones around us. God instilled Truth in everything we enjoy amongst our five senses for only man could turn beauty into greed and love into excess allowing envy to create lies of omission. We omit some areas or area of our life that creates disgrace finding shame in darkness. You feel and know it immediately unable to hide the shame from God wallowing in the wrong naturally forgoing the right of faith, hope and love. He is your only help even when another helps God is there as the catalyst of Truth. In Him I will never be put to shame. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray we thirst for Truth by love of Your Word. LORD, from Psalm 63:4 I chant, “Your love is better than life; my lips shall ever praise You!” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Liars shut mouths by Mercy- Psalm 63
Woods called him near Judah
Singing aloud his love for Grace
Intimacy measured his Ruler
Relationship void of sin’s disgrace
Life made better by Power
Glory we acclaim is Yours
Praising lips your flowers
Bud of soul Savior endures
Clinging to love his journey
Shouts from His wings shadow’s above
Liars shut mouths by Mercy
Exulted is he who rejoices for God’s love
Day Sixty-Four Psalm Sixty-Four
The righteous rejoices and takes refuge in the LORD; all the upright give praise. Psalm 64:11
The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me; He has sent me to bring Good News to the afflicted, to bind up the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, release to the prisoners. Isaiah 61:1
We honor Thursday as the holiest of holy days looking back at the Last Supper where Christ Himself began the closing and final sacrifice as the Communion all humanity will have for all generations. Jesus became the Passover offering holding up bread and wine to always remember He gave up His Body and Blood for all sin through all originations of every family who breathed a name upon their lineage. He created His Church to Shepherd the Flock with constant presence and peace that day giving the Keys to Peter to bind on Heaven and earth the principles of faith, hope and love of Charity.
Countless men and women have given their life to His Call of Salvation by the stripes of man’s laws of disgrace. No matter the consequence many will stand up even to the point of death afraid not of the gasp mankind can snuff out but the breath of Eternal Life given only by God Himself wrapping your life in God’s cool wind of grace. For this reason we can enjoy His Body and Blood in a Communion daily in the grips of societal inflictions. Be affirmed to “bring Good News to the afflicted, to bind up the brokenhearted” with a proclamation of freedom by His Anointed Will. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to live the Good News. LORD, from Psalm 64:10 I chant, “Every person fears and proclaims God’s actions, they ponder His Deeds.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Schemes hidden righteous understand- Psalm 64
Yelling for protection
Righteous living lead
Singing his projections
Tongues sharp he disagrees
Crowd’s malicious inspections
Snares set conspired hands
Fear they show in their complexion
Schemes hidden righteous understand
Day Sixty-Five Psalm Sixty-Five
Blessed the One whom You will choose and bring to dwell in your courts. May we be filled with the good things of Your house, Your holy temple! Psalm 65:5
He was spurned and avoided by men, a man of suffering, knowing pain, Like one from whom you turn your face, spurned, and we held Him in no esteem. Yet it was our pain that He bore, our sufferings He endured. We thought of Him as stricken, struck down by God and afflicted, But He was pierced for our sins, crushed for our iniquity. He bore the punishment that makes us whole, by His wounds we were healed. Isaiah 53:3-5
I used to wonder why this Friday of all Fridays was considered Good until the day I truly understood my surrender of being obedient to placing God First. While my Baptism at the age of 30 brought me to know Christ, I didn’t seek Him First as I do now asking forgiveness of overzealous passion of selfish wants constantly probing in practice, prayer and proclamation to live forgiven. This Friday above all Fridays says to me the purpose, pain and passion of Jesus Christ came to complete fruition in bearing the suffering once and for all the Sacrifice to end my sin and yours for anyone for all generations.
Yes, that makes today a Good Friday. The Friday we call as Christians as the Friday we find what men avoided in Truth to be the One who endured the death to Rise in defiance of the people who killed Him. Yes, Alive by the Hand of God to be the Redeemer of the world. Placing Him First makes this Friday as my saintly father-in-law would say, the “goodie goodie” of the goodiest Fridays ever lived. An Eternal Friday of faith, hope and love of Charity described today as punished for Truth to fulfill this proclamation of mercy described by God’s Prophet of Old. Today I will proudly wear this exact Scripture on my shirt to enjoy a Friday filled with good- filled with God! Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray all time is lived for Good as the Friday this day Truly represents. LORD, from Psalm 65:6 I chant, “You answer us with awesome deeds of justice, O God our Savior, The hope of all the ends of the earth.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Dripping of Truth nothing complains- Psalm 65
Friday song of good
Mixed with Psalm as it should
Passion endured fashion
Praise vows amazed
Flesh tortured our rest
Praise for His love today
Pardon wicked same
Things good combined to pray
Temple holy visited each and every day
Justice deeds awesome might
Sea calmed roaring delight
People’s tumult obvious slight
Soft showers sprout blessings rains
Robed in joy meadows ordain
Dripping of Truth nothing complains
Day Sixty-Six Psalm Sixty-Six
Come and see the works of God, awesome in deeds before the children of Adam. Psalm 66:5
Then God said: Let there be light, and there was light. God saw that the light was good. God then separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day,” and the darkness He called “night.” Genesis 1:3-5
The eve of Easter rising slowly above the noise and confusion confining our love for good not evil Light to lead our day that witnesses use to brighten our night’s Way. You too can see the Works of God where awesome deeds shine from Above exampled in Truth authenticated by love. Inspect with me today how the death would be enslaved in deep mourning by the faithful Disciples who denied then cried and watched as He died wondering if they’d be next scattering to reflect not knowing what to expect. Maybe cry with me today as they did so many years ago sharing love and connections to the Man who would Rise as all longed for His Might that would make everything all right.
You see Jesus didn’t Rise we will find to sweep bad boys and girls aside. No, He chose love over hate peace over war life over death forgiveness never to deny anyone the right to confess and abide. No matter night or day you find God in His rain not disdain to order life in the Light of His love. Grace is the fate we try and relate realizing our surrender to Him who died for me and for you must Rise in surrender to obedience through and through. God wants to see us reflect on our best giving not rest to selfish ways of sin less we forgo His Will ultimately ending by seizing life’s breath before ending in eternal death. You are the “works of God, awesome in deeds” before the world. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to live the Works of You LORD. LORD, from Psalm 66:3 I chant, “Say to God: “How awesome Your deeds! Before Your great strength Your enemies cringe.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Refused not mercy by God who frees slaves- Psalm 66
Labeled a psalm for a song
Always the leader’s prolog
Praise glorious singing belongs
Strength cringes the enemy’s wrong
Worshipped deeds awesome works
Children of the world passes on foot
Sea became dry to save captive’s necks
Freedom led to sacrifice heard in David’s distress
God he would fear not evil cheer in a daze
Heart heard to say love Him in praise
Prayer He would hear voice he would gaze
Refused not mercy by God who frees slaves
Day Sixty-Seven Psalm Sixty-Seven
May God bless us still; that the ends of the earth may revere Him. Ps 67:8
This man God Raised (on) the Third Day and granted that He be visible, not to all the people, but to us, the witnesses chosen by God in advance, who ate and drank with Him after He rose from the dead. He commissioned us to preach to the people and testify that He is the one appointed by God as judge of the living and the dead. To Him all the prophets bear witness, that everyone who believes in Him will receive forgiveness of sins through His Name. Acts 10:40-43
We look back over-and-over again reliving the fact that God came to the world to set us free from our sin allowing us a perfect communion with Him by simply confessing Jesus Christ is LORD. Yes, He has Risen as God intended today as the day we celebrate God’s Only Son overcame the tomb to Reign as God Immortal. Truth won over torture as Life returned to the Man presumed dead meeting God alive intact Spirit of Love Eternal.
We have completed our 40 days of fasting, almsgiving and prayer to see our LORD Resurrect from the dead just as you are called to Resurrect your life by the Lenten Season you are now concluding. Make practice, prayer and proclamation your testimony constantly bearing Christ in your thoughts, actions and deeds of Charity’s Truth. Anoint yourself and bear witness to your New Life in Christ in every step you take.
Placing God First relives the reflection of Christ’s life in every way possible consecrating your life from what you wear to the nerve you gain to proclaim to anyone at anytime and anywhere. I recently placed “God 1 st” on my motorcycle windshield backwards so people could see it read right in their rear view mirror.
My first day out brought a man to pray with in traffic riding through Key Largo. “His Son is Risen to be First for all,” the man said as I pulled up next to him. Holding hands with him the man prayed, “thank you LORD for sharing peace with me today.” I replied, “In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.” Pulling away I said aloud, “Jesus Christ is Risen! He is Risen Indeed!” Relive your reflection of Christ daily by consecration. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray we live Resurrected in You LORD. LORD, from Psalm 67:2 I chant, “May God be gracious to us and bless us; may His face shine upon us.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Prosperity blessings Resurrection conveys- Psalm 67
Easter Sunday wasn’t known
God First was his tone
Praising in song the psalm shown
Sixty-seven played in strings words blown
David was king wanting nations praise
Of his God Eternal harvest yielded obeyed
God blesses by learning how to pray
Prosperity blessings Resurrection conveys
Day Sixty-Eight Psalm Sixty-Eight
Sing to God, praise His Name; exalt the rider of the clouds. Rejoice before Him whose Name is the LORD. Psalm 68:5
God raised this Jesus; of this we are all witnesses. Exalted at the Right Hand of God, He received the Promise of the Holy Spirit from the Father and poured it forth, as you (both) see and hear. Acts 2:32-33
What a day it must have been to first learn Jesus had Risen then to find Him gone discovering an empty tomb to finding Him on their way back home to be told to tell the others He will see them all very soon. The two Mary’s must have been a little overwhelmed understandably so in joy to see Jesus had truly Risen from the dead. They had seen Him raise others from the dead but to see God had given Him blessings and honor of life Immortal must have set them on fire.
You know the kind of fire you feel once you’ve left a weekend retreat floating on air as the Disciples did when they spoke in every language to every reeling Jew and foreigner who could speak and be understood in their own native tongue. There was a feeling of worth and accomplishment that now will become never ending in you. The feeling Charity will become the faith, hope and love you will live as Resurrected in Christ. What they received and preached is what you practice, pray and proclaim. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to live in the Spirit rejoicing in Truth to fear. LORD, from Psalm 68:29 I chant, “Summon again, O God, Your Power, the Divine Power You once showed for us.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Summoned Tower of Power- Psalm 68
God is Power
Confess His Strength
Blessed to Tower
Universe Its Length
Sky held Power
Majesty in Place
Heaven the Tower
Filled with grace
Again summon Power
Divine as lace
Rescue the Tower
Peoples You trace
Day Sixty-Nine Psalm Sixty-Nine
I will pray to you, LORD, at a favorable time. God, in Your abundant kindness, answer me with your sure deliverance. Psalm 69:14
Peter [said] to them, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the Name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Acts 2:38
We are answered by God in the Deliverance we receive by confessing Jesus Christ is LORD accepting Him as the Savior we commit our lives to. The favorable time came for God to let the captives go in the sin we have created for all eternity. Not a soul is left unanswered bringing us to our knees to call out to God in thanksgiving reaping graces in the midst of despair.
It might takes some a while to completely notice how Christ has anointed your life with gladness grinning with ease exuding peace but once they get wind of the Holy Spirit in you, you’ll see people ask more questions about your obedience of how you’ve remained so faithful. You’ll be able to tell them that practice, prayer and proclamation allows you to be forgiven instilling the Holy Spirit upon your thoughts, actions and deeds.
Allow people to be drawn to you naturally seeking prayer by the symbol on your chest or automobile but more importantly the presence of Christ in your heart and soul by your actions and works allowing good deeds to instill grace upon you and the people around you. Deny not the Christ who will deny not the soul before His Father exacting the gift of Spirit and Truth instilling faith, hope and love of Charity; Jesus! Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to be delivered by the confession of Christ to our life. LORD, from Psalm 69:33-34 I chant, “See, you lowly ones, and be glad; you who seek God, take heart! For the LORD hears the poor, and does not spurn those in bondage.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Feeble anger describes- Psalm 69
Lines complaint describe
The sinners suffering
Depths watery divides
No forgone senses
Shame complaint describes
Gossiping sinners suffering
Deliverance God complies
Poison food condenses
Feeble anger describes
Wrath vindicated suffering
Rescued bondage denied
Only God Provides
Day Seventy Psalm Seventy
May all who seek You rejoice and be glad in You, Those who long for your help always say, “God be glorified!” Psalm 70:5
Now that very day two of them were going to a village seven miles from Jerusalem called Emmaus, and they were conversing about all the things that had occurred. He said to them, “Oh, how foolish you are! How slow of heart to believe all that the prophets spoke! Was it not necessary that the Messiah should suffer these things and enter into His glory?” Then beginning with Moses and all the prophets, He interpreted to them what referred to Him in all the Scriptures. Luke 24:13-14, 25-27
We all have memories of our surrender to rejoicing in God’s Truth. Maybe yours was the day you felt the Spirit tell you in Words of Truth being read to you on a Sunday morning or maybe you had the Spirit visit you on the weekend some friend talked you into going called Emmaus. I know you remember that fire you felt as you listened to someone just like you describe the struggle of their life seemingly just like yours that makes you see things in a different light; Christ’s Light of forgiveness.
The Walk to Emmaus reminds me of the walk children do every day of their lives seeking unspoken understanding of a brain soaking up learning by mistakes and successes taught and learned so long ago by an Instructor Who laid the Foundation of the World. We learn about free will unknowingly living God’s Will to recognize Truth of rejoicing in faith, hope and love of God’s Charity. Just as Jesus suffered to enter into His Glory, we too must suffer in living to know correction as much as we know inflections of growing by reading God’s Word.
God reminds us constantly that making mistakes and growing in Truth is a constant rejoicing we should practice to live in contemplation of thoughts that create the works God’s Will produces in you. Yes, this means effort on our part to listen to the Prophets of Old knowing your passing along the knowledge of Salvation by living in Truth. Deny not the Father or His Son and He will not deny you when your Walk to Emmaus ends in an instant just as Jesus Who disappeared from sight from the Disciples so long ago. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray our walk teaches us to love in Truth. We pray for the Emmaus Walkers of the world. LORD, from Psalm 70:4 I chant, “Let those who say “Aha!” turn back in their shame.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Aha their Emmaus felt- Psalm 70 & Luke 24
Remembrance walk grace help
Disgrace confuse rescue shame
Aha their Emmaus felt
LORD disappeared delivered Name
Day Seventy-One Psalm Seventy-One
God, You have taught me from my youth; to this day I proclaim Your Wondrous Deeds. Psalm 71:17
God raised up His Servant and sent Him to bless you by turning each of you from your evil ways. Acts 3:26
He said to them, “These are My words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about Me in the Law of Moses and in the prophets and psalms must be fulfilled.” Then He opened their minds to understand the Scriptures. Luke 24:44-45
We leave the retreats of our life energized and willing to run and tell anyone we can about the experience of Jesus as Jesus begs us all to live in His Truth not just experience His Words by the practice, prayer and proclamation of faith, hope and love of Charity. I recall with such clarity the first time I encountered the LORD in Spirit guiding me to share my Bible study almost seven years ago.
He spoke to me clearly in the Scriptures opening my mind to walk back and forth from Emmaus over-and-over again pondering the Words He instilled in 11 that every generation from now to eternity will accept or deny for Salvation. I know, Eternity seems like a very long time as I chuckle aloud the brevity my heart and soul feels as a mere mortal.
When we allow God to bless us in Christ, we allow His Spirit to tell us what to do without back talking in the surrender He expects but understands when you fail. Describing failure in the midst of an Emmaus Walk that seems less treacherous than pictures of old depict could be hard to understand. The route was picturesque lined with shading trees and smooth trails but God knows unless groomed the route can become filled with holes of the potter’s jest making it muddy and seemingly impossible to travel.
We must remember God doesn’t make you impassible as much as He makes you pliable in your agilities to overcome all plights. Jesus will open your mind to the Scriptures by the practice, prayer and proclamation of living His Truth. Open your Bible my friends and read with me every day the love of living for Him. Pray with me each day as we sing aloud the psalms I write for Him. Proclaim with me as we share our understanding in silence as much as “God First” across the back of your car will say. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray You open our mind to the Scriptures. LORD, from Psalm 71:8 I chant, “My mouth shall be filled with Your praise, shall sing Your glory every day.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Age of old aches hope is life not a race- Psalm 71
Age of old aches
Complain suffering mistakes
Judgment Divine to erase
People seeking ruin disgrace
Hope is life not a race
Day Seventy-Two Psalm Seventy-Two
May His Name be forever; as long as the sun, may His Name endure. May the tribes of the earth give blessings with His Name; may all the nations regard Him as favored. Psalm 72:17
He is ‘the Stone rejected by you, the builders, which has become the Cornerstone.’ There is no Salvation through anyone else, nor is there any other Name under heaven given to the human race by which we are to be saved.” Acts 4:11-12
The world has a tough time identifying with the rejection discussed today by Peter in his Spirit-filled response of how they killed the Cornerstone of Salvation partaking in acts that deny Redemption. We want to think if we don’t talk about it in our schools, our neighborhoods and our homes God will just disappear and the consequences we are living will vanish in thin air. Well in this case the thin air so to speak is generation upon generation of society’s that have allowed God to be placed in a box we sometimes take off our shelf to stick our heads in as the pendulum swings to a slight majority of people who fail to take His Word out even in the midst of mayhem once their head is there.
We reject the notion of faith, hope and love as a reason to deny Charity fastening ourselves to the desires of the heart in the name of diversity. We as the faithful of heart must take the stance of no judgment acting on His Word in joy adhering to peace by the practice, prayer and proclamation of God’s Truth. We can help someone not reject Jesus by the thoughts, actions and deeds of living obedient unafraid to call Him Favored. Allow Jesus to be the Cornerstone of your life breaking down that box some in society may bury their head in as we share with them how to raise His Word above their head carrying it around in your inspirations forming engagements of prayerful efforts of love never to be placed in a box again. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray we never reject You again LORD. LORD, from Psalm 72:12 I chant, “he rescues the poor when they cry out, the oppressed who have no one to help.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

Day Seventy-Three Psalm Seventy-Three
Though my flesh and my heart fail, God is the rock of my heart, my portion forever. Psalm 73:26
So they called them back and ordered them not to speak or teach at all in the Name of Jesus. Peter and John, however, said to them in reply, “Whether it is right in the Sight of God for us to obey you rather than God, you be the judges. It is impossible for us not to speak about what we have seen and heard.” Acts 4:18-20
He said to them, “Go into the whole world and proclaim the Gospel to every creature. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved; whoever does not believe will be condemned.” Mark 16:15-16
We have an Everlasting security in the “Sight of God” forging Truth over brutality embracing Salvation over condemnation. God allows us to fall in our Walk with Him for He knows the weakness we encounter daily unless we place Him First in every step we take. We can’t say we’ll give God His due when God gives us our allotted portion because God has given His allotment by the breath you breathe in the joy of your surroundings.
You can make them Him or you can make them you seeking self or Salvation living obedience from the flesh of a failing heart or the sturdiness of the Rock of revelation anointed to speak of all possibilities of Christ proclaiming the Gospel of Salvation. You will find the believers at work for Truth avoiding not the ignorant or lost but sharing faith, hope and love to every creature the world over.
Today I conclude a Novena of prayers for a man I’ve befriended over the last six years in Christ sharing the joy he and I have given our lives to. He has such a charm to give instead of take to smile instead of fake not willing to procrastinate the joy he feels of sitting on the Rock of Salvation. The smile was there in the unknown of fighting liver cancer when he stopped to say hi a few days ago. I embraced him and prayed with him for healing but as importantly I prayed over him for peace for he is already Saved. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to obey in the Gospel we proclaim. LORD, from Psalm 73:28 I chant, “As for me, to be near God is my good, to make the Lord GOD my refuge. I shall declare all Your Works.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Hand of Right overcomes fleshy heart mumbles- Psalm 73
Envy sets in from experience personal
Faith can be lost in envious stumbles
Prosperity comes not from blinding liberals
Hand of Right overcomes fleshy heart mumbles
Good is near by God the refuge humble
Day Seventy-Four Psalm Seventy-Four
You, God, are my King from of old, winning victories throughout the earth. Psalm 74:12
Although you have not seen Him you love Him; even though you do not see Him now yet believe in Him, you rejoice with an indescribable and glorious joy, as you attain the goal of [your] faith, the Salvation of your souls. 1st Peter 1:8-9
Thomas answered and said to him, “My Lord and my God!” Jesus said to him, “Have you come to believe because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed.” John 20:28-29
Finding it easy to believe that God brought His Only Begotten Son to the world to live sinless surviving in all aspects of climates to be scourged like no other scorned for living in Truth as He carried His own Cross to the Hill He was lifted above by nails to die on. The only reason and only King we obtain Salvation by, that’s why. It is made so simple yet so hard to surrender to until one day the person God intends you to spend your entire life with stands behind the counter of His Divine Will. When accepted and lived, you complete the circle of grace like no other finding His Way to Heaven’s mercy.
The Spouse called the Church is the Divine Covenant between you and another and God. Just as Jesus gave His all to the Church, we too enter this Sacred Covenant between Him and the other as we live as One with Him to know God First in all things. The arena is vast not limited to decisions on our own but only together through He Who establish your life and the world. We must decide mutually how to practice our faith as much as pray together how we can accomplish His Works of Charity. Together as One in proclamation God created His Church to be His hands and feet of faith, hope and love of Charity. May your Covenant with Him reward you with Heaven’s call. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray we believe though we don’t see. LORD, from Psalm 74:20 I chant, “Look to your Covenant, for the recesses of the land are full of the haunts of violence.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
I am surrendered in Christ,
†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed†

Day Seventy-Five Psalm Seventy-Five
We thank you, God, we give thanks; we call upon Your Name, we declare Your Wonderful Deeds. [God said:] “I will choose the time; I will judge fairly. Though the earth and all its inhabitants quake, I make steady its pillars.” Psalm 75:2-4
As they prayed, the place where they were gathered shook, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the Word of God with boldness. Acts 4:31
We find the undeniable repetition of giving thanks to God throughout the Psalms as David never loses sight of declaring His “Wonderful Deeds” in celebrating His acts of Redemption but as noted only in His Time of fulfillment. This direct intervention by God is seen as intentional bringing freedom to the people who believe. The Word of God had become Living as the Disciple’s grew in boldness by the Spirit of Truth enveloping their being. I can only imagine the Words they spoke remembering the Parables and intimate times with Christ that we live as the New Testament today.
The Pillars of Faith, Hope and Love will stand firm as the ground around you seemingly shakes with freedom brushing off denial dropping like sweat from working hard to proclaim the Truth. You’ll feel the emotions tremble the souls of people around you helping their surrender in the uncertainty of quaking souls. The Holy Spirit will guide your courage lifting you up in a clarity you’ve never seen before but will strive to accomplish often sharing the obedience of Salvation’s call. This quake that shakes every soul will tremble the very location you are at any time you call upon His Name. Pray in your practice as His Word becomes the boldness you speak. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to call on You allowing the ground to shake in Truth. LORD, from Psalm 75:7-8 I chant, “Judgment comes not from east or from west, not from the wilderness or the mountains, But from God who decides, who brings some low and raises others high.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Exalted the righteous wicked cut off horns of blood- Psalm 75
Giving thanks to deeds wonderful
Fairly judged in God’s Time
Shaking earth inhabit pillars steady
Boast not you boastful wicked horns raised not mine
David spoke by God’s own design
Neck not stiff horns not raised high divides
West or east does not judge the Divine
High are the low raised by He who decides
Spiced fully wine foaming is the LORD’s cup
His Hand brings the wrath for those who do not love
Drink of the wicked the drain they can’t plug
Jacob’s God David sang to rejoicing to what’s above
Exalted the righteous wicked cut off horns of blood
Day Seventy-Six Psalm Seventy-Six
Make and keep vows to the LORD your God. Psalm 76:12a
With great power the apostles bore witness to the Resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great favor was accorded them all. Acts 4:33
Everyone who believes in Him may have Eternal Life. John 3:15
The Promise of living forever comes from making and keeping a vow of faith, hope and love to the LORD your God by bearing witness to His Truth in every aspect of your life. There shouldn’t be one iodate of your life that doesn’t represent God and His Only Son for God asks us to consecrate every minute part our life has to offer for His Purpose. Here, we will find the Power of God in every instance of our life allowing His Great Favor to overcome all temptation witnessing an existence of Eternal Life.
We talk about Salvation because every human once they realize the brevity of life wants to know and live forever relishing every breath we take for joys as individual as the look each one of us takes on in the image of our One and Only Father. By practicing His Word daily by the brevity I display will give you hope by example securing prayer in thought proclaiming love in deed. Even in the this brief moment you spend with me daily you share His Power by the belief you place in the vow we bear in life to all. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to make and keep vows for You LORD. LORD, from Psalm 76:12b-13 I chant, “May all around Him bring gifts to the One to be feared, Who checks the spirit of princes, who is fearful to the kings of earth.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Thanks will Your wrath given by remnants- Psalm 76
Psalms lists instruments
Melodies by the strings
The leader with brief increments
Whose God is the only King
God great and renowned in Judah
Name above all names of shelter to seek
All in Salem have a tent the shield of Truth
Shattered arrows flashing weapons of the weak
You are awesomely terrible and strong
Mountains can’t compare in sleep
Stronger than failed valor we long
Failed men can’t stand anger terrible You reap
Sentenced pronounced from the heavens
Silence reduced the afflicted land scared
Thanks will Your wrath given by remnants
Vows keep and make feared princes share
Spirits check by gifts of God never compared
Day Seventy-Seven Psalm Seventy-Seven
You are the God who does wonders; among the peoples You have revealed Your Might. With Your Mighty Arm You Redeemed Your people. Ps 77:15-16a
God so loved the world that He gave His Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him might not perish but might have Eternal Life. Whoever lives the Truth comes to the Light, so that His works may be clearly seen as done in God. John 3:16, 21
We all find a different meaning in our hearts each time we read something in Scripture we have read before. John 3:16 is probably the most famous quote from the Bible that surely has the same effect on me every time I practice my faith by reading my Bible each and every morning. God sends wonders among His people in so many ways one would have trouble counting the blessings we all see each and every second of every moment of life. This is Truth to me the Redemption of His People by His Divine Design.
The Design of Him being the Judge and the Jury allowing mistakes in learning by the Light of works we are drawn to seeking the upright life of being holy as God Commands in His Word. He asks us to live by His Mighty Arm recognizing Him in our thoughts, actions and deeds of Charity where the Light of Christ shines as a Beacon for the world. You are this beacon “clearly seen as done in God.” I am reminded of the song we should all live, “This little Light of mine I’m gonna let it shine.” Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray our light is Your Light of Truth. LORD, from Psalm 77: 14 I chant, “Your Way, God, is holy; what god is as great as our God?” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Unseen footsteps in the powerful deep- Psalm 77
Crying loud to heaven
David starts seventy-seven
Psalm of groaning and begging
Asking has the LORD rejected him forever
Holy is the Way of God’s wonders
Might revealed heard in His thunder
Arm of Redemption increasing the world’s numbers
Trembling depths our seas of blunder
Led by Aaron and Moses through the sea
Unseen footsteps in the powerful deep
Hungry for freedom our path complete
Flock led to the Promise Land retreat
Day Seventy-Eight Psalm Seventy-Eight
We do not keep them from our children; we recount them to the next generation, The praiseworthy deeds of the LORD and His Strength, the Wonders that He performed. Psalm 78:4
But Peter and the apostles said in reply, “We must obey God rather than men. The God of our ancestors raised Jesus, though you had Him killed by hanging Him on a tree. Acts 5: 29-30
Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever disobeys the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God remains upon him. John 3:36
There will always be someone in power who wants those who believe to forget about God and His Commands trying to make us disown the Truth instilled in every generation since the beginning of time. They’ve done it before when they’ve just been rescued from the hands of slavery as much as they’ve continued it after nearly setting all slaves free from the bondage of forced labor.
If we’re not careful, our own government will set bondage on our God-fearing established country to the point of watching our personal lives to tracking our every move by electronic means. We as the Apostles of Old must stand up and shout, “We must obey God rather than men.” Here, we find Life Eternal remaining upon those who surrender to Christ shedding wrath for the grace of Salvation. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to obey You not men. LORD, from Psalm 78:5b, 7, I chant, “He commanded our ancestors, they were to teach their children; that they too might put their confidence in God, And not forget God’s deeds, but keep His Commandments.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Some abiding as many complain- Psalm 78
Singing aloud His grace

Generation after generation ordained

Faithful to God in confidence deeds

Grace obtained by Power Saving belief
Day Seventy-Nine Psalm Seventy-Nine
Help us, God our Savior, on account of the glory of Your Name. Deliver us, pardon our sins for Your Name’s Sake. Psalm 79:9
So now I tell you, have nothing to do with these men, and let them go. For if this endeavor or this activity is of human origin, it will destroy itself. But if it comes from God, you will not be able to destroy them; you may even find yourselves fighting against God.” They were persuaded by him. Acts 5:38-39
Then Jesus took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed them to those who were reclining, and also as much of the fish as they wanted. John 6:11
There will never be the stopping of the One Who created all. They will try over-and-over again making it illegal punishable by death but nothing will stop God from being God. We can try to exclude Him we can try and forget Him but how can we forget the one Who one day will take your last breath away? How can we stop a God who gives us free will to have anything we want?
We cannot nor shall we ever destroy His presence evident in the stars across the universe as much as in the temporary existence of a rose blooming from His Glory given in abundance the universe over. Give thanks as Jesus taught and receive without question the plenty allotted to those who live for His Purpose. Ask God as I to deliver us from our sins living for faith, hope and love of Charity. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to give thanks for Your Son LORD that is You to erase our sins. LORD, from Psalm 79:8, I chant, “Do not remember against us the iniquities of our forefathers; let Your compassion move quickly ahead of us, for we have been brought very low.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Honor our praise of grace to obtain- Psalm 79
Battle cry after destruction
Lamenting to our God to complain
Babylonians described destruction
Honor our praise of grace to obtain
Day Eighty Psalm Eighty
May your hand be with the man on Your Right, with the Son of man whom You made strong for Yourself. Psalm 80:18
Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever believes in Me will do the Works that I do, and will do greater ones than these, because I am going to the Father. And whatever you ask in My Name, I will do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything of Me in My Name, I will do it. John 14:12-14
We must always remember the Son of Man sits on the Right Side of the Father mirrored as One God with the Spirit as the Communal Force we live for in faith, hope and love. In today’s world, we get caught up in wanting the flash and flair of societal creation asking for and receiving excess not willing to shed the leftovers to practice Charity in a complete prayerful choice loving the proclamation chance to perform challenges charitable to Truth. All too often we see the excess of God’s blessings as surplus instead of a means to share Salvation avoiding the act of giving not realizing it comes in more than money it comes from the thought, action and deeds of sharing God First seeing each as equal.
Begin asking Jesus for the needs of your heart accepting His grace by the act of living for Him First and begin to notice the “God-instances” you’ll enjoy without worry of preparation or emptying your pockets to complete. There comes a humility you’ll extend your heart to when serving the less fortunate as much as you serve the wealthy and exclaimed. Be diligent in practice each day to prepare you for Works such as these where what you ask in His Name awakens the souls of others to know His peace. I believe in Jesus and therefor I want to mimic His Works of Redemption asking to receive what we’ll give in return. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray we ask in Your Name to know the Works of You LORD. LORD, from Psalm 80:19, I chant, “We will not withdraw from You; revive us, and we will call on Your Name.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Be saving Face shinning Anger smoldering People whining- Psalm 80
Asking God hear

Face saved abide

Day Eighty-One Psalm Eighty-One
‘Listen, my people, I will testify against you. If only you will listen to me, Israel! There shall be no foreign god among you; you shall not bow down to an alien god. Psalm 81:9-10
“Do not work for food that perishes but for the food that endures for Eternal Life, which the Son of Man will give you. For on Him the Father, God, has set His Seal.” So they said to Him, “What can we do to accomplish the Works of God?” Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the Work of God that you believe in the One He sent.” John 6:27-29
We often wonder what the Work of God will be for us mere mortals that is to say those of us who are not religious devoting every waking hour to prayers and sacrifices that we have no idea how many or what time they are taking place in every corner of the world. I beg to differ by pointing to His Word aligning your life to practice reading at least once daily to live the Work of God.
We do this by believing the Only Way to Heaven is through our confession of our certainty of Jesus Christ the Way and the Only reason why we do His Work and as noted by Jesus in John 14:12, “Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever believes in Me will do the Works that I do, and will do greater ones than these.” We live the Work of God dipped in prayer where no matter the time or place we pray talking to God in proclamation.
We proclaim His Work in so many different ways to become nourished in Him as True Food of Salvation’s peace. Without His Nourishment we’d find it harder to deny the alien god man has created in the flash and flair selfish work of the heart has created. God doesn’t have anything to prove for His proof surrounds every discovery we make in the name of science created by the Name of Jesus. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to nourish ourselves with Your Word in practice, our surrender to You in prayer and our Work for You in proclamation. LORD, from Psalm 81:16, I chant, “Those who hate the LORD will try flattering Him, but their fate is fixed forever.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Rock gushing with honey for those who retreat- Psalm 81
Getting Asaph with gittith instrument
David’s inscriber would sing
Strength sung joyfully to lament
Jacob’s God they’d shout His ring
Melody taken by sounds of love
Harp as pleasant jingle complete
Moon new shofar blown to Him above
Solemn Law edict shown in our feast
Egypt we left from bondage freed
Burdened shoulder removed complete
Hands carry not the baskets of Pharaohs needs
Thunder secret rescued slavery became obsolete
Listen to his testimony against your conceits
God foreign will not be honored no dipping the knees
God alien did not bring from Egypt to be free
The God One and Only LORD your heart’s release
Rock gushing with honey for those who retreat
Day Eighty-Two Psalm Eighty-Two
I declare: “Gods though you be, offspring of the Most High all of you, Yet like any mortal you shall die; like any prince you shall fall.” Psalm 82:6-7
Jesus said to them, “I am the Bread of Life; whoever comes to Me will never hunger, and whoever believes in Me will never thirst. John 6:35
God describes those who deny Him as gods of their own destiny for in misrule of the world they shake the very foundation of earth that God made firm in His Creation. In nations all across the world we see rulers who dictate in a state of blindness calling on man-made deities to be the belief, bearing and benevolence of worship living for and dying in a complete state of transgressions across all planes of immorality.
Yes, you will hear the media call it diversity and yes you can feel God tugging on the world to live as He calls without judgment or jury embracing in love of Truth not denying or chastising in the Name of right of wrong. Jesus asks to share Him as the Bread of Life each learning on their own accord God’s Will of Salvation or your will of self. “Like any mortal you shall die” unless you declare Jesus as your LORD and Savior.
I know it seems so easy and so blunt when you take the time to fathom this Communion with God. I do not recognize myself as an expert for I learn something new every time I practice my faith in thought, action and deeds of Salvation’s Charity; Jesus! Yes, we proclaim Him Crucified for our sins as we pray in silent or aloud the love of life’s desire satisfied never feeling hungry again. Charity will be you as One in Christ. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to live Your Bread of Life never hungry or thirsty. LORD, from Psalm 82:2, I chant, “God takes a stand in the divine council, gives judgment in the midst of the gods.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Die as a mortal fallen prince of greed- Psalm 82
Council divine He stands against
Wicked favored just will wince
Fatherless justice needy defense
Poor lowly rescue wicked hand delivered hence
Understand not gods of darkness
Shaking the foundation gods you believe
High of the Most God of the shameless
Offspring of Mine for you I conceive
Die as a mortal fallen prince of greed
Nations judged by God Whom all must concede
Day Eighty-Three Psalm Eighty-Three
God, do not be silent; God, do not be deaf or remain unmoved! Cover their faces with shame, till they seek Your Name, LORD. Psalm 83:2, 17
We call out to God often asking Him not to be silent in the midst of such noise our lives have to offer. We assume too much responsibility and forgo the necessary acts of submission when seeking self more than seeking Truth. Truth being God and everything He offers as His Will not looking or finding excess but accepting little to accomplish much. We want God to evidently remain moved by our plights or blunders realizing not the acts of faith, hope and love require no show just surrender.
Instead of asking God not to be silent accept every sound around you as God’s basking in the silence or excess of Creation’s existence. Ultimately, we all will seek His Name in the deafness of death where our excess will remain to unmove our LORD shinning forth in the dust God can blow away with His Breath of Truth. We feel it whistle around our beings now causing the stirs of reaction creating His Works in the sight of life. Less will always be more with God where shame shows through in the excess of plunder. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray our call for You is from Charity’s Will. LORD, from Psalm 83:19, I chant, “Let them know that Your Name is LORD, You alone are the Most High over all the earth.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Shame on the faces disgrace they commend- Psalm 83
Asaph wrote extremely well
He surely knew how to spell to delve
Translating to English must’ve been hell
Every song enriches God’s Spell
Asking Him not to be silent
God unmoved remained not violent
Heads move rage enemies evident
Plotting against those You protect prevent
Seeking to ruin our name
Out they wipe the blame
Minds scheming to bring fame
You they are against to shame
The tents across the desert reek
Of a covenant they intend to seek
League of their own to be bleak
Lost towns in the deserts to speak
Together they planned God’s pastures to remain
In their possession they slaughtered to gain
The ruin of Israel their game
Flying chaff David prayed they would rain
By God’s Breath of Truth flying in the wind
Fire’s Rage mountains settings flame
Shame on the faces disgrace they commend
Perish them LORD Name to seek not blame
Day Eighty-Four Psalm Eighty-Four
For a sun and shield is the LORD God, bestowing all grace and glory. The LORD withholds no good thing from those who walk without reproach. Psalm 84:12
No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draw him, and I will raise him on the last day. It is written in the prophets: ‘They shall all be taught by God.’ Everyone who listens to my Father and learns from Him comes to Me. John 6:44-45
Think of the feeling you get when you yearn for God and His Kingdom. The feeling you get when you ache for understanding relinquishing your will to live for God’s Will. If we stop and think about this decision of whether you feel God drawing you to His Truth His Divinity of the only offer of Eternal Life, then we begin to offer Him up in practice, prayer and proclamation enlightening our souls experiencing the “draw” of God’s Truth.
King David expressed this as living “without reproach” finding God in every instance your life has to offer. Many a saint lived this atmosphere in their faith walk not asking God what to do but surrendering to God over-and-over again where not a thought escapes without thinking of His faith, hope and love of Charity. Giving your all to God is giving your all to hearing His Instruction by practicing His Word openly.
Here, real prayer life becomes evident by just the gesture you display in thought where the prayer in silence of your heart is loud as the open proclamation God asks of us all. This prayer leads to openly singing hymns of praise to prayer’s proclamation evident in the stillness of two hands coming together or looking to Heaven then bowing our head as we close our two eyes to pray. God’s “draw” is constant. Will you come? Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray You draw us LORD constantly. LORD, from Psalm 84:3, I chant, “My soul yearns and pines for the courts of the LORD. My heart and flesh cry out for the living God.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Shielded is the being who eternally prays- Psalm 84
Yearning soul David forever knew
King had a writer who obediently drew
His songs of praise no devil to do
Courts heart cry flesh God living True
Home at the Altar David sang to his young
Dwelling to praise you cease never Your love
Man blessed Your refuge life’s begun
Prayer heard shielding the anointed from above
One day with You LORD is glory and grace
Things good given by He who reproach his days
Trust in Your blessing seen on his face
Shielded is the being who eternally prays
Day Eighty-Five Psalm Eighty-Five
I will listen for what God, the LORD, has to say; surely He will speak of peace to His people and to His faithful. May they not turn to foolishness! Near indeed is His Salvation for those who fear Him; glory will dwell in our land. Love and Truth will meet; justice and peace will kiss. Psalm 85:9-11
Jesus said to them, “Amen, amen, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you do not have life within you. Whoever eats My Flesh and drinks My Blood has Eternal Life, and I will raise him on the last day. For My Flesh is True Food, and My Blood is True Drink. Whoever eats My Flesh and drinks My Blood remains in Me and I in him. John 6:53-56
Our need to listen allows us to understand more deeply rather than talk to acclaim weakly. David reminded the people not to “turn to foolishness” seeking reward of self rather than service to Integrity. This is a fear that produces love basking in the glory of God’s Truth. A fear we must learn to practice sharing prayer in the preaching of life’s actions of surrender living obedient to His Promise of Eternal Life.
The Simplicity of God’s Mystery makes our choice a little easier until misunderstanding His call to remain in Communion with Him by the Bread of Life He gave us in the Last Supper before His death. Something so simple yet mistaken for a symbol instead of its Real purpose of being His Soul and Divinity by the Body and Blood of our LORD Jesus Christ. “This is My Body” were the words Jesus used to represent the final Sacrifice for sins where “Love and Truth” meet.
Every Mystery we encounter in the LORD allows our fear to embrace the Truth God intended for our guide of life. When we practice the reading of His Word, we gain this insight on prayer and proclamation as the necessary obedience we are to live for God in justice and peace in what we think as much as what we say in the deeds of love and Truth. Finding nourishment in Him makes us One with Him where He remains in you as you remain in Him exuding “life within” that is Eternal. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to be One with You in Your Bread of Life. LORD, from Psalm 85:3, I chant, “You forgave the guilt of Your people, pardoned all their sins.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Pair’s virtue restored twice love justice truth peace- Psalm 85
Day Eighty-Six Psalm Eighty-Six
Teach me, LORD, Your Way that I may walk in Your Truth, single-hearted and revering Your Name. Psalm 86:11
It is the Spirit that gives Life, while the flesh is of no avail. The Words I have spoken to you are Spirit and Life. John 6:63
God responds with such grace when we instill in our lives the love of practice enabled with the love of prayer responsible for the desire to proclaim asking the LORD each and every moment of every day, “Teach me, LORD, Your Way that I may walk in Your Truth, single-hearted and revering Your Name.” You will hear the Words of “Spirit and Life” spoken in the depths of your soul clarifying mind and body to live a life of Christ.
My wife and I come across men and women of faith often as our natural instincts kick in to be thankful before meals as much as being drawn to each other as a joy true disciples feel to celebrate in honor of faith, hope and love of Charity. Listening to the discussions of devotion to our God sparked a conversation last night in a Key Largo fish restaurant as we sat around enjoying grouper and baked beans.
If I could I encourage you in your walk with Christ to be open with anyone, anywhere and anytime to pray with them allowing as one of the men said, “Everyone wants to know God,” then I feel God’s Will is to embrace such proclamation where interaction with one another teams the joy of placing God First in open prayer not living a life of the flesh but breathing the Spirit of Truth. The love of Spirit celebrating life as God intended. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray Your Spirit gives us Life of Salvation. LORD, from Psalm 86:12, I chant, “I will praise You with all my heart, glorify Your Name forever, Lord my God.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Favor a sign confusing enemies complain- Psalm 86
Amazing life David wailed
The love of God prevailed
Asking in Him to obtain
Devoted life to sustain
You LORD is our trust
Gracious preservation not lust
Servant serving soul gladdened
Merciful forgiving cry not saddened
Distress allows us to call
Know god allows us to fall
Deeds of forgiveness refrain
Nothing equal our shame
Way teach LORD Truth to walk
Name revered never to balk
Ruthless sought his life in vain
Heed none Truth they disdain
Favor a sign confusing enemies complain
Day Eighty-Seven Psalm Eighty-Seven
Glorious things are said of you, O city of God! Psalm 87:3
When He was insulted, He returned no insult; when He suffered, He did not threaten; instead, He handed Himself over to the one who judges justly. He Himself bore our sins in His body upon the Cross, so that, free from sin, we might live for righteousness. By His Wounds you have been healed. 1st Peter 2:23-24
The City of God rests upon the shoulders of the One and Only Redeemer who by the humility He lived in accepting all forms of punishment proved to be the patient Son of God bearing all wounds for our healing. If only we’d step up and accept His Truth as the Only Way to Heaven, then we’d step into the City of God each and every moment of our lives to live free of all human judges totally in peace.
Yes, in His glory He suffered for you and for me in ways we can only imagine where the pain He endured healed humanity forever. We will deny His City around you by the blind feeling we get from the flash and flair of man-made selfishness. If we profess Him Crucified, we accept the anointing of His Blood to wash us clean instilling righteousness living free from sin.
For some time over the last seven years I have seen a man helping the opposition at a local abortion clinic who always wears bright clothing. He reminded me of Elvis by his hair and he has never spoken to the vigil prayer group. Last night I saw him and it dawned on me who he was as he walked past. I caught up with him and introduced myself learning his name and letting him know I was praying for him. How important it is to live Christ’s humility as the righteousness we live free in. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to live free in righteousness. LORD, from Psalm 87:5b-6a, I chant, “The Most High will establish it; the LORD notes in the register of the peoples: “This one was born there.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Springs in dancers city holy its fame- Psalm 87
Mountains holy foundation His
Zion Gates Loves His digs
Things glorious city so big
Born here and there established to live
Peoples noted registered to gain
Springs in dancers city holy its fame
Day Eighty-Eight Psalm Eighty-Eight
Is Your mercy proclaimed in the grave, Your faithfulness among those who have perished? Psalm 88:12
This is why the Father loves Me, because I lay down my life in order to take it up again. No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down on My own. I have Power to lay it down, and Power to take it up again. This command I have received from my Father. John 10:17-18
Where life begins life will also end allowing nothing to be proclaimed in the air-less pits of Sheol where separation of reality and ruin has never been overcome. Well, except by the Only One who died for sin giving us all the reason to live forever in Him. David spoke of Sheol as the place that would cut Him off from God forever and he lamented over impending death hoping to persuade God to let him show Him Divine Honor to praise His Omnipotence of Truth to keep on living.
We know we can’t proclaim God aloud from the depths of our graves confinements as we struggle as a society to put our dead to rest in a proper way. Will natural burials return to mainstream or will we continue to fill our loved ones with chemicals that create explosions over preservation? In our attempt to prolong life we have prolonged a bodies death forgetting God has the only Power to preserve and raise forever.
The Ascension of our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ came about from a Power we cannot fathom or understand that came to the world to Divinely guide humanity away from sin given to us in our self-will. By recognizing His Power we submit to the practice, prayer and preaching of laying one’s life down for the Charity given in faith, hope and love of God. When you give your all to His Purpose, you see the graces of Truth in the smallest of life as much as you see Him in the biggest of deaths. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray we lay our life down for You LORD. LORD, from Psalm 88:11, I chant, “Do you work wonders for the dead? Do the shades arise and praise you?” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Even in shadows my capacity dare not compare – Psalm 88
Impending death has no surprise
Death is death we can’t deny
Salvation he called psalms comprised
Prayer to God tears he would cry
Sheol filled his soul near life troubles
Strength without warrior’s defeat
Grave couch slain influence stumbles
Wrath loathsome shunned in his conceit
Hands outstretched praising proclaimed
Declared marvels out of dark nothing spared
Oblivion sees not deeds righteous sustained
Friend of darkness encircled surge despair
Even in shadows my capacity dare not compare
Day Eighty-Nine Psalm Eighty-Nine
I will make your dynasty stand forever and establish your throne through all ages. Psalm 89:5
When he arrived and saw the grace of God, he rejoiced and encouraged them all to remain faithful to the Lord in firmness of heart. Acts 11:23
Jesus answered them, “I told you and you do not believe. The works I do in my Father’s Name testify to Me. But you do not believe, because you are not among My sheep. My sheep hear My voice; I know them, and they follow Me. I give them Eternal Life, and they shall never perish. No one can take them out of My hand. John 10:25-28
Practice creates belief established in God’s Truth as the Beacon for all humanity. We see the effect of practice in the grace we all witness and rejoice in from anyone who worships the faith, hope and love of Charity in Christ Jesus. They remain faithful by the firmness of their heart to simply believe. Obviously the Word of God makes us want to believe in the Voice of Truth echoing across all strands of humanity.
Practice opens your mind to hear His voice and when combined with the “works of Christ” present now as much as they were existent when He walked the earth, you will follow naturally as the sheep that only follow their own shepherd. When we practice, we live our belief exacting Truth by the thoughts, actions and deeds of prayer openly living in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to rejoice encouraged in Truth. LORD, from Psalm 89:37-38, I chant, “His dynasty will continue forever, his throne, like the sun before me. Like the moon it will stand eternal, forever firm like the sky!” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
In the Son He extended from human retreat- Psalm 89
Promise he stood dynasty enduring all defeat
David laments of demise as to complete
The Covenant long-lasting God will repeat
In the Son He extended from human retreat
Day Ninety Psalm Ninety
Teach us to count our days aright, that we may gain wisdom of heart. Psalm 90:12
As the Father loves Me, so I also love you. Remain in my love. If you keep My Commandments, you will remain in My love, just as I have kept my Father’s Commandments and remain in His love. “I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and your joy may be complete. This is My Commandment: love one another as I love you. John 15:9-12
We make our days “aright” by loving one another as God loves us. Jesus taught as Moses to live the Commandments and you will “gain wisdom of heart.” We learn today Psalm 90 was written by David as a prayer of Moses describing “the man of God.” As almost every psalm does as well as our own lives of brevity do we praise and complain God as the Creator who should protect feeling abandoned in times of need forsaking every ounce of proof God has ever shared.
He shared His Commandments on the mountain with Moses teaching us to love as to be loved knowing in our hearts we want to love as we want to be loved. We must “remain” in Christ’s love as we love to receive the joy of living heaven on earth avoiding hell in the Truth of Salvation. David would sing of Moses to prepare our future with love and forgiveness accepting not selfishness as the Way to Heaven but the Everlasting Truth of a life lived in faith, hope and Charity of love- the ALL of Jesus!
I know examples of this love are lived each and every day and we as God’s Children can affect change by His love of Truth. Truth is not afraid of saying hi in Christ and encourages your works to be filled with Christ’s purposeful love. The kind of love that says hello to blind children handicapped or not knowing God’s voice better than we do. If only we could see or hear God as clearly, we would stop and talk to any of God’s Children by the smile or twinkle of Christ on your face- the ALL of Jesus! Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray for wisdom of heart to say yes always to love as You love us Father God.. LORD, from Psalm 90:1, 2c & 10 I chant, “A prayer of Moses, the man of God. Lord, You have been our refuge through all generations. From Eternity to Eternity you are God. Seventy is the sum of our years, or eighty, if we are strong; Most of them are toil and sorrow; they pass quickly, and we are gone. ” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
God is Eternity described Love sin forgiven- Psalm 90
Often praying describing Moses condition
Commandments brought forth from the mountain
Refuge generation’s all of God’s Children
God is Eternity described Love sin forgiven
Day Ninety-One Psalm Ninety-One
Say to the LORD, “My refuge and fortress, my God in whom I trust.” Ps 91:2
Amen, amen, I say to you, no slave is greater than his master nor any messenger greater than the one who sent him. If you understand this, blessed are you if you do it. From now on I am telling you before it happens, so that when it happens you may believe that I AM. Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever receives the one I send receives Me, and whoever receives Me receives the One who sent Me.” John 13:16-17, 19-20
David assuredly reminds us to take refuge in God and in God alone. We want it all and then more so when God gives us even more while God asks us to receive those who are in Him as they are receiving He Himself; with humble servitude. A trust we live as David has noted surrounded in God’s “fortress.” Amen! “Blessed are you if you do it!” God wants us to give more to the less of life chosen and destined to be poor is the soul who chooses self-will over God’s Will.
I for one embrace this notion in the tears of righteousness that well up every time I share His Truth. It’s a feeling of life over death knowing and trusting in the “I AM” of the entire universe. You’ll hear Him in the poetry I write as much as you’ll hear Him in the works I live for God instructs us to practice, pray and proclaim over everything we do. Not a mile turned in the wheels of life will go without His Proclamation from my lips protected in Him living for Him. “Blessed are you if you do it!” Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to receive You in all as we live for You and You alone. LORD, from Psalm 91:14 I chant, “Because he clings to Me I will deliver him; because he knows My Name I will set him on high.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Power saving grace is the LORD never again ignored- Psalm 91
Almighty shade dwellers on High
Trust God in speaking of His fortress refuge not lies
Plague destroyed rescued from snare’s fowler ride
Refuge taken pinions sheltered wings of His abide
Day flies that arrow feared not nightly terror
Noon ravages not the pestilence darkness roam
Come not you near hands right thousands by ten spared her
See and watch simply wicked punished obviously shown
Stronghold your high most refuge in your LORD
Dwelling safe afflicted not by evil at your door
Go by Him angels commanded protection implored
Stone stricken not foot yours supported His hands from before
Dragons trampled in the viper’s venom ignored
Setting high on Him the Name delivered and adored
Honor He gives to the distress He answered we implore
Power saving grace is the LORD never again ignored
Day Ninety-Two Psalm Ninety-Two
It is good to give thanks to the LORD, to sing praise to Your Name, Most High, to proclaim Your love at daybreak, Your faithfulness in the night. Psalm 92:2-3
Do not let your hearts be troubled. You have faith in God; have faith also in Me. John 14:1
David wanted to share God as the everything of life praising His Name as he awoke as much as he proclaimed God in his kingship surroundings until ultimately he fell asleep at night knowing God was the reason to live. When I awake in sickness or distress as much as when I feel excited and holy, I awake saying a prayer my wife taught me invoking the Trinity as the first words off my lips. “In the Name of Father who created me, in the Name of the Son who Redeemed me and in the Name of the Spirit who sanctifies me, I offer this day I’m about to take on.” I turn quietly to my wife and whisper, “good morning beautiful.”
I know I’ve described this before in my writings but God places on my heart to share my faith over-and-over again. I know how tough it is to place God First but I implore you to simply bask in Truth surrounding yourself with men and women of faith and you too can find the desire to love God First with all your heart and soul where the peace of Christ is the faith, hope and love you live for His Charity. There will be discourse instead of trouble for in the Light of God’s Eye is the works He sees in you pleasing your own heart past the ignorance of self embracing the belief of Christ’s amen in John 14:12: “Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever believes in Me will do the Works that I do.” Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to place You First LORD in all we do. LORD, from Psalm 92:5 I chant, “For you make me jubilant, LORD, by Your deeds; at the Works of Your Hands I shout for joy.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Nothing wrong to proclaim Rock Whom I long- Psalm 92
A king giving thanks
His song to Him on High
The Most Name we abide
Daybreak or night love melody confides
Joy shouted deeds jubilant elate
Hands Your Works love creates
Design profound works eternally great
Senseless fools can’t comprehend or relate
Yes sinners thrive grass like flourish
Destruction eternal they obviously nourish
Only the LORD High forever our wish
Scattered sinners indeed wasted perish
Strength of an ox did David roam
Oil rich poured as a foam
Gleaming eyes wicked are shown
Lebanon cedars green and fresh not alone
Nothing wrong to proclaim Rock Whom I long
Day Ninety-Three Psalm Ninety-Three
More powerful than the roar of many waters, more powerful than the breakers of the sea, powerful in the heavens is the LORD. Psalm 93:4
The disciples were filled with joy and the Holy Spirit. Acts 13:52
Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever believes in Me will do the works that I do, and will do greater ones than these, because I am going to the Father. And whatever you ask in My Name, I will do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything of Me in My Name, I will do it. John 14:12-14
The joy of the Holy Spirit consumes your heart and soul with such desire to serve as God intended with expressive love that enlightens the mind with Truth. When we begin to see God’s Truth more clearly by our daily practice, we witness the Power God has to transform minds into joyful watery tears producing excited abled bodies witnessing miracles in the midst of uncertainty. Jesus has reminded us He will do greater works than those the Disciples witnessed first-hand creating hope where people hide in self-love of self-destruction.
We are the hope representing the Church asking for the Will of faith, hope and love of Charity to create and believe in the Works of Christ. Works we can purposely pursue as much as much as we can experience in unexpected ways where a seemingly small discussion with a stranger can have a profound effect on the rest of their lives. Placing God First is living the Works of Christ by your practice, prayer and proclamation of breathing, thinking and living in the Name of Jesus. The Father provided the Son to live Redeemed by the Holy Spirit that will Eternally fill you with joy. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray for Your Power in our lives to live in joy by Your Spirit of Truth. LORD, from Psalm 93:2 I chant, “Your throne stands firm from of old; You are from Everlasting.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
House befits Holiness adored Established Decrees LORD implored- Psalm 93
Day Ninety-Four Psalm Ninety-Four
The LORD knows the plans of man; they are like a fleeting breath. Blessed the one whom you guide, LORD, whom You teach by Your instruction. Psalm 94:11-12
We think we know it all grasping at fleeting selfish thoughts forgoing moral behavior for instant gratification. David uses Psalm 94 as his lamenting song against evil people who often seem to be battling us all in different ways known and unknown. We can draw from the experience and Trust he places in God to exact judgment and protect those who live according to God’s Commands.
We always seem to think God is not surrounding our every thought, action and desires of life to go unnoticed as David reminds us, “Does the One who shaped the ear not hear? The One who formed the eye not see?” We should know the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit rest upon the hearts of all humanity guiding, protecting and instilling Truth He bestows and acted on by the free will He gives us all.
Here, we find God’s Will to practice, pray and proclaim faith, hope and love of Charity; Jesus Christ! Jesus is the Charity we speak of when we seek the Works of Truth. Jesus is the Charity of the heart we embrace by the simple act of a smile in the midst of confusion. When Jesus touches your heart, He instills action in faith making hope from prayers silent and public prompting love to know Salvation. Make your plan His Plan by His Word of Instruction to use. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray our plans are Your plans LORD. LORD, from Psalm 94:8 I chant, “Understand, you stupid people! You fools, when will you be wise?” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Slipping foot Mercy holds- Psalm 94
Day Ninety-Five Psalm Ninety-Five
Oh, that today you would hear His voice: Do not harden your hearts. Psalm 95:7d-8a
Whoever does not love Me does not keep My Words; yet the Word you hear is not Mine but that of the Father who sent Me. John 14:24
When we hear His voice, we sometimes become frightened unable to respond due to distractions we create to garner wealth or selfish gratification. We lose sight of living in faith, hope and love not willing to practice what we should give to accomplish the Will of God by the Works He beckons us all to live. Here, we find Charity on all planes of giving sharing the Smile of Christ even in the worst of situations finding those conflicted to the point of death from the addiction many let ruin their natural God-given desire to live.
I met this smile of Christ yesterday as he stumbled along in front of a strip mall. He was obviously worn-out physically skin as brown and red as sunburnt skin can get while his shoes looked three sizes too large with one of his big toes black as coal from grime stuck out screaming anguish. I asked him if he was hungry and offered to buy him something hot to eat. He readily agreed seemingly shy but willing to say yes to something cold to drink as well. I returned a moment or so later with a cold soda and sized him up guessing his shoe, waist and shirt size throwing in his exact age.
He was a size 9 shoe holding on to a 32 waist and a medium shirt shortly turning 58 years old. His name is Mike and we began an encounter that lasted about an hour but will garner prayers for a life-time. You see I was on my motorcycle and I had to go home to pick up the shoes he so desperately needed. He agreed to pick up his food on his own and wait for me to return. Together upon my return we talked about doing what God does for all humanity by living Redeemed in Christ accomplishing the Works you hear in the voice He guides you by. I pray we can all keep and live His Word by accepting this surrender of being obedient to Charity’s Call; Jesus! Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to heed Your Word and act. LORD, from Psalm 95:6 I chant, “Let us bow down in worship; let us kneel before the LORD who made us.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Worshipping the only God with tested observation- Psalm 95
Salvation the Rock we cry without hesitation
Joyfully we sing in complete proclamation
Psalms of praise David to sing in daily revelation
King over all gods is the God Great salutation
Earth held mountain tops owned without complication
God’s hand formed land dry and sea destinations
Kneel before God in complete rest works activation
Worshipping the only God with tested observation
Day Ninety-Six Psalm Ninety-Six
Sing to the LORD, bless His Name; proclaim His Salvation day after day. Psalm 96:2
Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid. John 14:27
Some people may find it difficult to praise God every moment of every day calling on Him in good times never and calling on Him in bad times every time something wrong occurs. When we surrender to His peace, Jesus gives humanity capability, confidence and courage to enter life undeterred by the forces of evil prowling about the world seeking the ruin of souls. They are there all around you stealing your thoughts, stealing your time and stealing your treasures whisking them off by the beat of their selfish tale.
David reminds us to “Sing to the LORD (and) bless His Name” proclaiming “His Salvation day after day” rejoicing in the peace His Son won for the world. I have come to understand the world will never give you what Jesus gives that which is Eternal versus fleeting enveloping you not floating away with the wind. In your obedient surrender, offer Him your all as first proclamation of each opening and close of every day resting hearts that are not “troubled or afraid.”
Let people around you see the peace in your demeanor in your dance nothing’s neater than a God First stance. Take the time to talk to the lost of the world where we stop and smell the flowers of life sharing Salvation. Tell them families a part hurts from the start and estranged brothers and sisters or moms or dads need your reassurance of enjoying life’s love. Speak of peace and pray for peace hold their hand and hug their neck show them God is love where Truth is met. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to live and give peace of Christ. LORD, from Psalm 96:4 I chant, “For great is the LORD and highly to be praised, to be feared above all gods.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Faithfulness justice world- Psalm 96
Earth must sing

Day Ninety-Seven Psalm Ninety-Seven
You who love the LORD, hate evil, He protects the souls of the faithful, rescues them from the hand of the wicked. Psalm 97:10
I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in Me and I in him will bear much fruit, because without Me you can do nothing. John 15:5
The hand of the wicked will swallow you up unless you surround yourself in the Name of Jesus! Amen. Consecration of your life cannot be examined in a lack of surrender for if you are not obedient to the very last breath of living as a follower of Christ’s New Covenant of Love, evil will devour you in that slip of an instance. You will lose Eternally for the chance to satisfy yourself instantaneously. A Forever life of Christ is the vine dripping in fruit by the beauty of an amazing Creator satisfying the souls of the faithful.
Some of my Kairos Brothers were discussing last night what it means to serve and how the life of service brings a natural smile to the person who places God First in the service of others less fortunate or lost in self craving the Truth God instills in your soul. You can see them smile changing hearts by a simple confession identifying with struggles we have together to rid ourselves of evil’s tug of self. We must allow ourselves to grow into a vine where others will pick the fruit of God’s Salvation living as One in Christ. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to always hate evil by living as One in Your Son Jesus! LORD, from Psalm 97:12 I chant, “Rejoice in the LORD, you just, and give thanks at the remembrance of His Holiness.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Evil hated faithful souls protected by God your priority- Psalm 97
Surrounded storms judgment lust
Faithful rejoice in heart’s honesty
Dawn will be seen by the gladness just
Trembles of lightening illuminate Eternally
The LORD who shames all gods fuss
Claims your worthless enemies
All bow before the God we trust
Evil hated faithful souls protected by God your priority
Day Ninety-Eight Psalm Ninety-Eight
The LORD has made His victory known; has revealed His triumph in the sight of the nations. Psalm 98:2
As the Father loves Me, so I also love you. Remain in My love. If you keep My Commandments, you will remain in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s Commandments and remain in His love. John 15:9-10
We tend to think God’s miracles are something of the past often calling out to God asking Him to show more than we have failed to believe. You see miracles happening all over but seem to not agree that say the creation of a child is a miracle in itself or the accomplishments in science aren’t God-created miracles basking in the proof of reality. We want to ignore to implore vulgarity of self opting to remain in self-love instead of basking in the righteousness of servant love by remaining in the Truth of Jesus.
We find the Truth in placing God First lacking because we have swung in overzealous judgment of the common person to giving it all not righting the wrongs by stealing your God-given ability to think for yourself. The government guides us away from thinking about God evident so in the schools across America transcending to the dinner across the world. We may hear radio stations bleep out words in songs while people parading in promiscuity seem to have become a norm we accept in the name of diversity.
God has made His victory known in the acceptance of all men and women across every plane of humanity that only humans place judgment on by the laws they create to stifle the Diversity of Truth. We witness for this diversity in Christ as He calls us all to love no matter the circumstance of who, what, when or why. Accept His Victory in the Salvation of faith, hope and love of Charity living ever vigilant to evangelize the surrender to your obedient call of His Eternal Victory in the Diversity of Truth. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray we accept victory in Your Name LORD! LORD, from Psalm 98:4 I chant, “Shout with joy to the LORD, all the earth; break into song; sing praise.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Before He comes to govern the loyal- Psalm 98
Victory Arm Holy Deeds Marvelous
Song new of triumph nation’s appease
Faithfulness and mercy obvious
Praise we sing trumpets sound of release
Song melodious praise of joy
For the LORD our King we make Royal
Applause His Works don’t be coy
Before He comes to govern the loyal
Day Ninety-Nine Psalm Ninety-Nine
Exalt the LORD, our God; bow down before His footstool; Holy is He! Psalm 99:5
No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. John 15:13
David writes of God being enthroned on cherubim reminding the faithful they should “bow down before His footstool” referring to the two being-like creatures placed on each side of the Ark displaying animalistic as well as human features that God was believed to be hovering invisibly around as “His footstool.” I often think if God is dwelling as this around us as “His footstool” then why am I not my knees constantly in praise of the God who created us for His Will? This Will wasn’t a puppet on a string but the Truth of living in faith, hope and love of Charity.
Jesus described it as laying “down one’s life for one’s friends.” We take upon ourselves His Purpose when we begin our surrender struggling with letting go of our self-will until one day we acknowledge His Will is the life we lead by the practice, prayer and proclamation of placing God First. Here, the peace of His Son’s New Covenant of Love we share until His Will takes us to His Eternal Home remaining in the peace we constantly feel as well as display in your Smile of Christ. You know the smile people are drawn to taking many times a double look when they pass by. I always say, “God Bless” as I pray to exalt the LORD around “His Footstool” anywhere, anytime and with anyone. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to be Your footstool of faith, hope and love! LORD, from Psalm 99:3 I chant, “Let them praise Your great and awesome Name: Holy is He!” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Forgiveness after punishment He spoke- Psalm 99
Quakes the earth on Cherubim
Enthroned above the footstool world
Trembles people rock the Ark of Him
Name Awesome great praise just rule
He is Holy down you are to bow to Him
LORD exalted by priests among His friends
Answering Samuel, Moses and Aaron would begin
Praising the Decrees in His answer to them
The Law was given from a cloud of smoke
Decrees kept referring them not as a joke
Forgiveness after punishment He spoke
Bow before the Mountain Holy Exalting what He wrote
Day One Hundred Psalm One Hundred
Serve the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful song. Ps 100:2
When he had seen the vision, we sought passage to Macedonia at once, concluding that God had called us to proclaim the Good News to them. Acts 16:10
Remember the word I spoke to you,* ‘No slave is greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My Word, they will also keep yours. John 15:20
We tend to think that God doesn’t give people visions anymore not believing the ones people express our try and understand what Prophets of Old explained in their surrender the faithful seek constantly. We see many a faithful being led by the Spirit of Truth similar to Paul or David who kept the Word of God in their hearts relentlessly sharing the Good News of Old and New Covenant of Love where Commands written across a stone tablet guided the very existence of all humanity.
The Good News provides faith, hope and love of Charity’s Truth eliminating sin to no longer be a slave to a false master of self. The Master teaches in visions you see in dreams as much as you witness in person where the Good News you proclaim is indicated in the practice and prayer you accomplish for every thought, action and deed. Humanity is aching for the Good News seen by you placing God First consecrating your life to the Gospel to find the smile of surrender obedient to love and peace. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to proclaim the Good News in peace. LORD, from Psalm 100:4c-5 I chant, “Give thanks to Him, bless His Name; good indeed is the LORD, His mercy endures forever, His faithfulness lasts through every generation.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Prophets and kings knew Who was better- Psalm 100
Lands everywhere joyfully shout
Psalm 100 full of thanksgiving no pouts
Song joyful gladness to give what the LORD touts
Shepherds His flock making us utter His rout
Name to always bless His mercy forever
Indeed Good is the LORD endured endeavor
Lasting through all different kind of levers
Generation good faithfulness to Divine letters
Prophets and kings knew Who was better
Day One Hundred One Psalm One Hundred One
I sing of mercy and justice; to You, LORD, I sing praise. I study the way of integrity; when will you come to me? I act with integrity of heart within my household. Psalm 101:1-2
Sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts. Always be ready to give an explanation to anyone who asks you for a reason for your hope, but do it with gentleness and reverence, keeping your conscience clear, so that, when you are maligned, those who defame your good conduct in Christ may themselves be put to shame. For it is better to suffer for doing good, if that be the Will of God, than for doing evil. 1st Peter 3:15-17
“If you love Me, you will keep My Commandments. And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Advocate to be with you always, the Spirit of Truth, which the world cannot accept, because it neither sees nor knows it. But you know it, because it remains with you, and will be in you. John 14:15-17
Today our practice reminds us that Jesus should be a part of your heart constantly seen as Truth where people will eagerly ask of you to explain your faith, hope and love of Charity with such fervent desire of why we are Christ’s witness of Salvation’s love. We witness daily what Jesus speaks of when people choose left and right instead of just choosing the Truth which covers all ground your life speaks of.
To live in His Commandments we practice, pray and proclaim the hope that creates integrity we live each and every day to be an instrument of reverence in a moment’s notice brushing off evil slander with the One many do not know or accept the Advocate Jesus sent upon all humanity if accepted to live not left or right but in the Truth of doing what is good rebuking evil even as suffer to live the Will of God. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray in hope to live in the Spirit of Truth. LORD, from Psalm 101:3b-4 I chant, “I hate wrongdoing; I will have no part of it. May the devious heart keep far from me; the wicked I will not acknowledge.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Wicked cleared not considered fun- Psalm 101
David sought Eternal integrity
Wrongdoing service he would shun
Royal God-fearing faithful diversity
Wicked cleared not considered fun
Day One Hundred Two Psalm One Hundred Two
Of Old You laid the earth’s foundations; the heavens are the Work of Your hands. They perish, but You remain; they all wear out like a garment; Like clothing You change them and they are changed, but You are the same, Your years have no end. Psalm 102:26-28
“When the Advocate comes whom I will send you from the Father, the Spirit of Truth that proceeds from the Father, He will testify to Me.” Jn 15:26
History surely affords us the opportunity to believe that the earth’s foundations have been laid by some “Super Natural Spirit” humanity has labeled as God. It’s not we who discovered the Truth from the heavens but God Who instilled in Prophets of Old the Word of God in purpose to live in faith, hope and love of Charity’s all. We are changed by God for the good as God so intended to hear and live in the Truth given as True Testimony of the Everlasting Who Was the beginning and Who will be the end.
He “proceeded” from the Father as many have noted since the beginning of time forming from Old the foundations of the earth to sustain a humanity He would let grow like a baby from generation to generation learning to communicate in an instant with each other but still struggling with how to communicate with God. Regardless of what anyone says, “the Spirit of Truth” will testify awakening souls to the Salvation of Jesus to find His Saving grace in His years that “have no end.” Redemption! Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray we never deny only testify to Christ. LORD, from Psalm 102:2, 19 I chant, “LORD, hear my prayer; let my cry come to You. Let this be written for the next generation, for a people not yet born, that they may praise the LORD!” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Written to bless generation next born not yet people will confess- Psalm 102
Age overcomes the life in us all
David lamented his impending Eternal rest
Even the favored would hear the call
Quickly answer in my time of distress
Bones of skin groaning loud he would stall
Owl alone ruins among the desert
David would moan like a rooftop sparrow
Curse he would become even as the fairest
Tears he drank with bread ashes caroled
Generations forever renown pity time appointed
LORD’s Name feared glory Yours of kings address
Scorning not the plea of lowly God anointed
LORD praised by David’s Psalm written to bless
Generation next born not yet people will confess
Day One Hundred Three Psalm One Hundred Three
Bless the LORD, my soul; all my being, bless His Holy Name! Bless the LORD, my soul; and do not forget all His gifts. Psalm 103:1-2
Then he, (the prison guard) brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be Saved?” And (Paul and Silas) said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus and you and your household will be Saved.” So they spoke the Word of the Lord to him and to everyone in his house. Acts 16:30-32
I tell you the truth, it is better for you that I go. For if I do not go, the Advocate will not come to you. But if I go, I will send Him to you. And when He comes He will convict the world in regard to sin and righteousness and condemnation: sin, because they do not believe in Me; righteousness, because I am going to the Father and you will no longer see Me; condemnation, because the ruler of this world has been condemned. John 16: 7-11
Living life takes us away from living in the gifts our Father has given us because we feel we can’t take along God by the evident secular acts of seclusion when it comes to sharing the fruits of God in the public arena. If only we’d act like Paul and Silas, we would never be ashamed not to share the faith, hope and love of Christ Jesus living free from sin committed to constant prayer in righteousness celebrating the Ruler of the world always shunning condemnation of His Divine Right of Final Judgment.
We must give Him the right to creating as much as confiscating the very breath you scream when spanked into survival or as you take your final breath of living in Salvation where the constant embrace of love soothes you for all Eternity. We crave to know this feeling of peace tired of running where it’s Truth we meet. We have the Advocate here and now guiding your thoughts of practice and prayer as much your proclamation of Christ in your heart where Three abide as One- The Spirit, Father and Son. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to bless the LORD with our entire soul. LORD, from Psalm 103:11-12 I chant, “For as the heavens tower over the earth, so His mercy towers over those who fear Him. As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our sins from us.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Ministers blessed Will His merciful anger lasting none- Psalm 103
David shared his soul to One
Asking all to fear but never shun
Formed to praise granted we won
Dust blown west or east we become
Ministers blessed Will His merciful anger lasting none
Day One Hundred Four Psalm One Hundred Four
I will sing to the LORD all my life; I will sing praise to my God while I live. May my meditation be pleasing to Him; I will rejoice in the LORD. Psalm 104:33-34
We seem to understand what it will take to surround ourselves with faith, hope and love but aren’t willing to accept the duties involved to practice, pray and proclaim the Good News afforded to us by God Almighty Himself. We would rather pursue useless things that seem important to us but aren’t beneficial to our Spirit’s Salvation only our selfish search for sin. There are so many different ways to align yourself with the Will of God but the journey will always begin here in His Word.
Look no further each day but to drift into His Truth seeking not to read the entire Book but to soak in the joy of His Word one journey at a time. Once we see we are learning the history of man by God’s Chosen concluding with a Covenant of Love that erases all past and future judgments, our practice takes on a new meaning and each word, verse and book brings upon new meaning in praising and meditation living a sense of calm enjoying the beauty of inner peace. “I will rejoice in the LORD!” Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to praise You LORD constantly seeking You. LORD, from Psalm 104:4 I chant, “You make the winds Your messengers; flaming fire, your ministers.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Foundation earth fixed Shaken never required- Psalm 104
Soul LORD bless
God indeed great
Majesty clothed nest
Cloak robed Light
Heaven’s tent spreads
Water chamber beams
Chariot clouds make
Wind wings traveling
Messengers winds make
Ministers your fire
Foundation earth fixed
Shaken never required
Garment covers deep
Waters mountains above
Flight rebuke steep
Fled thunder sound
LORD works vary
All His Wisdom
Earth face renewed
Forth glad Spirit
Hallelujah LORD blessed
Soul Eternal rest
Day One Hundred Five Psalm One Hundred Five
Give thanks to the LORD, invoke His Name; make known among the peoples His Deeds! Psalm 105:1
We never cease to need the invocation of Truth by the Name of the LORD in every thought, action and deed you set out to accomplish for life’s thrills as much as the mundane tasks we must endure day-in and day-out. David reminds his people to give thanks to God constantly forgetting not to praise Him in every waking deliberation that leads to eye awakening inspirations of faith, hope and love.
You can feel your faith increase in your practice embracing the Bible day-after-day in reflective prayer of the known and unknown of the world. We know we breathe in Truth by His Word just as much as we know we breathe our last breath by His Divine Will. Funny how little boy dreams stay the same as we grow older but our bodies feel the pain of muscles and joints that have lost steam although in our mind they seem pristine.
David is talking of a consecration today where every ounce of energy you have is God-given and celebrated allowing you a constant reminder to practice, pray and proclaim His Deeds to the people of the world allowing in silence of unknown prayer as much as the thunderous boom of a God’s anointed to be heard and acted upon in the hearts and souls of every Child of God. Whether we want to openly admit or acquit God is the invocation of God’s Will embraced and surrendered in your self will. Like my sticker on my motorcycle says from my good friend John, “Thank You Jesus!” Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to give You thanks LORD invoking Your Son’s Sweet Name always; Jesus. LORD, from Psalm 105:3 I chant, “Glory in His Holy Name; let hearts that seek the LORD rejoice!” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Creeds we rejoice wondrous deeds praise will bring- Psalm 105
Ending with a Hallelujah says the king
David sings of the Jewish story
From frogs to the locusts sting
Bloody waters fish killing and gory
Rebellion against His Word
Slave and child name would ring
Judgments Moses wrote what he heard
Creeds we rejoice wondrous deeds praise will bring
Day One Hundred Six Psalm One Hundred Six
Hallelujah! Give thanks to the LORD, who is good, whose mercy endures forever. Who can recount the mighty deeds of the LORD, proclaim in full God’s praise? Blessed those who do what is right, whose deeds are always just. Psalm 106:1-3
So you also are now in anguish. But I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy away from you. John 16:22
David recognized the joy God brought to every moment of his life even in the darkest hours King David called on God as the “right” he would live and proclaim in the just deeds he always accomplished. I don’t know about you but that makes me feel the joy of shouting “Hallelujah” many times over. “Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!” The righteousness of blessings from God for doing what is right is the thanks we give God in the works our life encompasses.
We must receive the Holy Spirit in thoughts, actions and deeds as the “right” He empowers us to live recognized more clearly in the practice of reading your Bible each and every day as the peace His Spirit connects us to. This is the righteousness God asks us to live bringing tears of joy to your eyes as much as laughter across your lips with sounds of rejoicing bellowing from your lungs. I enjoy this peace God gives us all more than anything I’ve ever known. “Hallelujah!” Thank you Jesus! Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray for Your blessings for living right in You LORD. LORD, from Psalm 106:44-45 I chant, “God had regard for their affliction when He heard their wailing. For their sake He remembered His Covenant and relented in His abundant mercy.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Everlasting Hallelujah endures the pain can be surreal- Psalm 106
David continues his history song
Expressing joy and anger so dear
Denying God is forgiven we Eternally long
Hallelujah God’s compassion and mercy are real
Everlasting Hallelujah endures the pain can be surreal
Day One Hundred Seven Psalm One Hundred Seven
“Give thanks to the LORD for He is good, His mercy endures forever!” Psalm 107:1
Bless those who persecute [you], bless and do not curse them. Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. Have the same regard for one another; do not be haughty but associate with the lowly; do not be wise in your own estimation. Romans 12:14-16
And Mary said: “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my Savior. Luke 1:46-47
As a people, we have recognized that everyone is not going to live as angels evidenced in the many giving thanks for excess living to be in control without limits deterring humanity from achieving God’s grace. David recognized the need for Godly restraint calling on His Power, Mercy and Grace as the very Foundation his rule would ensue. We see evidence of His Truth in our daily lives denying Deliverance for deviance escaping Eternity for diversity witnessed in the Rules we break following every mistake.
When we begin to see mistakes as a reason to lie, then we fail to recognize God’s Redemption explained so eloquently by Paul in the Letter to the Romans. To live Redeemed means to proclaim the greatness of the LORD as Mary exemplified in rejoicing often even with the “lowly” that need to see God First in your greeting silent or jubilant by foe or friend. Living as an angel becomes evidenced in your practice, prayer and proclamation of faith, hope and love of Charity. Not wise of the world but love of liberation in the Eternal peace Jesus Delivered by the Cross. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to rejoice in You LORD loving all in action and prayer. LORD, from Psalm 107:43 I chant, “Whoever is wise will take note of these things, and ponder the merciful deeds of the LORD.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Note taken by the wise from their perches-Psalm 107
Rejoicing hymn of forty-three verses
Rescue deeds merciful obliterated curses
Rally the people to live without lurches
Note taken by the wise from their perches
Mouth shut wickedness diminished life of princes
Day One Hundred Eight Psalm One Hundred Eight
We will triumph with the help of God, who will trample down our foes. Psalm 108:14
If you are insulted for the Name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. 1st Peter 4:14
We obviously notice the “triumph” we find in life from our practice, prayer and proclamation giving us more than courage to live our time filled with the works of Truth from surviving in faith, hope and love of Charity’s call. The Call of Charity is the works God asks of us all in the faith we grip each and every day to practice praying by reading your Bible daily instilling in you the hope to overcome the rudeness diversity seems to have created by some who feel not only can they openly insult you for your beliefs but they can demand to push history’s truth right out a window of denial and greed.
We see God trampling down the foes of insults in the Truth of loving all as God so loves us. Maybe it’s the same as loving yourself as you yourself will want to be loved for God so loves you in the way He wants all to love just as humanity should love and indulge. Here, God is telling us all to love diversity without judgment from humanity for only He will judge as He sees fit reviewing all the insults, innuendos and implications of a life filled with obedience or obstructions leading to a surrender of Christ forgiven living in His Spirit of glory or the desires of self and excess judged by Only One.
Remember what Peter says in verse sixteen of chapter four we have studied and practiced today. “Whoever is made to suffer as a Christian should not be ashamed but glorify God because of the Name.” Glorify God because of the Name of Jesus! Glorify God in the Righteousness of Christ’s Salvation! Hallelujah! Our “triumph” rings loud and clear in the “Spirit of Glory” where God Himself anoints your travels with insult proof protection showing through the blessing and honor of God’s Truth. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray we triumph with You as our Guide LORD. Prayers for Closer Walk Media dot com listener’s intentions requests across the world. Prayers for Kairos Prison Ministry of DCI#49. Greg Bishop has our never ending prayers. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. LORD, from Psalm 108:2 I chant, “My heart is steadfast, God; my heart is steadfast. Let me sing and chant praise.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Help human worthless aid of the foe- Psalm 108
Sing sing to the LORD our voices raise
David’s song of psalm’s joyous love
Twice steadfast heart chanting praise
David would sing to His LORD above
Dawn will awake in harp we sing
Peoples will hear our eternal praise
Nations will hear the chant we bring
Skies full of mercy to the heavens they raise
Holiness spoken out measured ones loved escape
Help human worthless aid of the foe
God of help triumphs overcoming life mistakes
Trampled down armies by the Truth we must sow
Day One Hundred Nine Psalm One Hundred Nine
O God, whom I praise, do not be silent, for wicked and treacherous mouths attack me. They speak against me with lying tongues; with hateful words they surround me, attacking me without cause. In return for my love they slander me, even though I prayed for them. They repay me evil for good, hatred for my love. Psalm 109:2-5
We constantly call out to God in silence but God knows we must call out to Him in a thunderous plea just as David did day-after-day calling and pleading with God to help him with his every situation life has to offer. David had a hard time understanding just like many of us why people lash out in the rudest ways possible lacking etiquette understanding not the realm of living with couth. Couth comes from passing not judgment on your fellow man but living in Christ Resurrected and forgiven.
Manners David noted people spoke slanderously with “lying tongues” or attacking “without cause” using “hateful words” of insult. We wonder why people choose to be ugly or nice realizing we must give what God gives without worry lavishing love ignoring incompetence by the God we praise morning, day and night. Let those who slander see your determination of faith, hope and love of Christ’s Redeeming Charity sharing good rebuking evil by the Truth of Resurrection’s exoneration. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to praise You LORD for Your guidance of faith, hope and love. LORD, from Psalm 109:30-31 I chant, “I will give fervent thanks to the LORD; before a crowd I will praise Him. For He stands at the right hand of the poor to save him from those who pass judgment on him.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Accusers reward God protecting your blame- Psalm 109
David’s song of protection
Poor were vindicated Redeemed
Promise God made of dedication
Heart’s pierced He would claim
Ugliness was the choice of slander
Campaign to drive David insane
Guilty before the LORD’s grander
Accusers reward God protecting your blame
Day One Hundred Ten Psalm One Hundred Ten
A psalm of David. The LORD says to my lord: “Sit at my right hand, while I make your enemies your footstool.” Psalm 110:1
I served the Lord with all humility and with the tears and trials that came to me. I consider life of no importance to me, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to bear witness to the gospel of God’s grace. Acts 20:19, 24
Conversations with God are as important today as they were when David created his songs from his conversations with God so long ago. In many instances, we can point to God’s Son as the future priest spoken of that now sits at the Right of Hand of God but more importantly we can talk and converse with God now as the practice, prayer and proclamation of serving the LORD with all humility through every tear and trial allowing “the Gospel of God’s grace” to “bear witness” to a life of Truth in Christ.
Christ is the reason why we must practice every waking moment prompting our sleep to be peaceful and satisfying feeling the sensation of being in the midst of God by His Spirit electrifying the hairs across your arm to a lifting levitated sense you never felt before. The Sixth Sense of being as One with the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit where you literally feel the direction being “Spirit-led, God-inspired and Christ-fed” finishing the course daily living in Truths to overcome trials. Amen.
Pray with me. Dear LORD, we pray to bear witness to Your Son by Truth to overcome trials of my own design as well as others forgiving them as well as myself. LORD, from Psalm 110:4 I chant, “The LORD has sworn and will not waver: “You are a priest forever in the manner of Melchizedek.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Footstool of enemies no one can deny- Psalm 110
David’s psalm identified
Speaking in God in a cry
Sit abide in the Lord’s comply
Hand right LORD says David will abide
Footstool of enemies no one can deny
Birth princely a Daystar Splendor
Holy begot dew you like to bore
LORD’s right hand crushes His wrath adored
Melchizedek manners forever priest implore
Head held high Wayside brook drank by the LORD
Day One Hundred Eleven Psalm One Hundred Eleven
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; prudent are all who practice it. His praise endures forever. Psalm 111:10
Now I commend you to God and to that gracious Word of His that can build you up and give you the inheritance among all who are consecrated. Acts 20:32
Consecrate them in the Truth. Your Word is Truth. As You sent Me into the world, so I sent them into the world. And I consecrate Myself for them, so that they also may be consecrated in Truth. John 17:17-19
Living a life of Truth means you “consecrate” yourself to a complete surrender to the beginning practice of fearing the LORD’s eternal damnation of your soul’s continuance after death recognizing True Wisdom comes from utilizing such practice to gain insight that “endures forever.” We consecrate ourselves to practice, prayer and proclamation to share the life of living in faith, hope and love of Charity. His Name is Jesus! Amen.
Just as we are drawn to perfection we can be frightened of living in complete Truth for in our humanistic qualities we always fall short of God’s grace not knowing for sure that God will take us back after the enormous mistakes we make. Here, we must realize God’s grace is constant in consecration forgiving selfishness as it occurs by the admission of fault as it happens experiencing wisdom in forms that recognize the Inheritance of Christ by God’s Own Design to live Redeemed. Amen.
Pray with me. Dear LORD, we pray to consecrate our all to You LORD. LORD, from Psalm 111:7-8 I chant, “The works of His hands are True and just, reliable all His Decrees, established forever and ever, to be observed with Truth and equity.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 111- Hallelujah Upright Praise Practice heart attack
Reverence for Truth by his practice
David made wisdom nothing to lack
Before the congregation the people exact
Deeds by His works an acrostic Hebrew fact
Hallelujah Upright Praise Practice heart attack
Wisdom studied not a Word forgotten to grasp
Decrees reliable equity in Truth will stack
Wisdom practiced praise will never lapse
Day One Hundred Twelve Psalm One Hundred Twelve
Light shines through the darkness for the upright; gracious, compassionate, and righteous. Psalm 112:4
Righteous Father, the world also does not know You, but I know You, and they know that You sent Me. I made known to them Your Name and I will make it known, that the love with which You loved Me may be in them and I in them. John 17:25-26
There comes a day when we feel the Truth of Christ resonating in our soul and every ounce of love we can muster to give or consume feels as if God Himself is sharing it with you holding your hand or cooling you by His breeze. David expressed this feeling as all who shine in the darkness living “gracious, compassionate, and righteous.” I’ve enjoyed this feeling more than any other I’ve ever known as the love of God that grips my soul energizing my being to associate all I do in His Name.
While the world may not know the Father, Jesus reminds us He is constantly with us allowing us to be the beacon for Him in all circumstances made known by Christ through every other act of obedience He garnered to save Humanity’s souls from our sin. Here, we find the sin that beats away compassion for loneliness as much as the sin stealing your gracious love for another from prideful greedy over indulgence. When your soul resonates on that day, you too will feel “Spirit-led, God-inspired and Christ-fed” in every thought, action and deed shinning in the dark sharing how to be freed. Amen.
Pray with me. Dear LORD, we pray we are a light for You. LORD, from Psalm 112:1 I chant, “Hallelujah! Blessed the man who fears the LORD, who greatly delights in His Commands.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Love given to the poor wicked never kneel- Psalm 112
Commands of God delight
The man who walks right
In the Hallelujah of the Light
Blessed descendants generation upright
Forever house righteousness wealth
Riches too compassionate gracious health
Justice conducted affairs lending are stealth
Forever remembered shaken never he felt
Fearing not of reports of ill
Steadfast trusting no fear to feel
Foes are down looked upon still
Honor he gives poor lavish his meal
Love given to the poor wicked never kneel
Day One Hundred Thirteen Psalm One Hundred Thirteen
Gives the childless wife a home, the joyful mother of children. Hallelujah! Psalm 113:9
When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter (three times), “Simon, son of John, do you love Me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love You.” He said to him, “Feed my lambs. Peter was distressed that He had said to him a third time, “Do you love Me?” and he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love You.” [Jesus] said to him, “Feed my sheep.” John 21:15, 17c
We find ourselves in need of a good old fashioned revival of sorts to praise the Name of our God to bring forth the lost and barren to find the fruits of Truth’s enormous umbrella of life that David would often shout “Hallelujah” to signify God’s Divine Power over all in His righteousness he adored. David reflects throughout the Psalm to welcome God in every aspect of our lives stating in verse three, “From the rising of the sun to its setting let the Name of the LORD be praised.”
Jesus wanted the Father’s adoration to be shared as the feeding of Truth to the lambs of the Shepard signifying humanity as whole soon learning and Commanding to share the Gospel the world over. We are the delivers of the Real Food of Christ God asks us to share in faith, hope and love of His Salvation. As a whole, God expects us to follow Him and not lead people astray to false desires of the heart. God asks us to give as He gives embracing love in hope and faith of Charity’s Truth; Jesus! Amen.
Pray with me. Dear LORD, we pray to praise You LORD night and day. LORD, from Psalm 113:2 I chant, “Blessed be the Name of the LORD both now and forever.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 113- God gives all a reason to shout Hallelujah
David understood praise
His voice he would raise
The Hallelujah of God’s daze
Eternal forever His Name to crave
Praise at the rising sun
Praise at its setting
Glory in the Heavens above
High enthroned glory resting
Heap of ash hold not a child
All peoples the poor will indulge
Home for the childless mum
God gives all a reason to shout Hallelujah
Day One Hundred Fourteen Psalm One Hundred Fourteen
Tremble, earth, before the Lord. Psalm 114:7
There are also many other things that Jesus did, but if these were to be described individually, I do not think the whole world would contain the books that would be written. John 21:25
Often King David would sing of deliverance recalling the deeds our LORD did for the people of Israel releasing them from bondage proved time-and-time again in every sort of miracles. From parting the sea to feeding them from heaven in the manna or the quail or as importantly the water that gushed from the rock when Moses struck it as directed by God Himself God proved His Might, His Protection and His Deliverance in so many ways David wanted to naturally share this motivation to stay steadfast in loving God and God alone.
Jesus was no different in His deliverance of all peoples proving from one miracle to the next that He was and Is the King of the Universe guiding humanity to know faith, hope and love of Charity in the Salvation He gave the world by His life, death and Resurrection to free us all for all Eternity. We must learn to tremble before the LORD in a life where fright equals liberation and liberation leads to practice, prayer and proclamation of Love’s Truth in One LORD Jesus Christ. Amen.
Pray with me. Dear LORD, we pray to tremble by a life of living in Truth. LORD, from Psalm 114:8 I chant, “Who turned the rock into pools of water, flint into a flowing spring?” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 114- Escape miracles won
David celebrated often
Recalling the liberation
Singing his celebration
God’s Spirit lofted
Leaving Egypt behind
Jacob’s House intact
Judah found time
Domain Sanctuary fact
Fled saw sea
Back turned Jordan
Rams skipped free
Hills moved sudden
Jacob’s only God
LORD not mock
Tremble Truth nod
Water pools rock
Spring flowing stopped
Thirst desert run
Warrior Divine locks
Escape miracles won
Day One Hundred Fifteen Psalm One Hundred Fifteen
It is we who bless the LORD, both now and forever. Hallelujah! Psalm 115:18
Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied. Matthew 5:6
We hear David rebuke the taunts of an enemy asking, “Where is your God?” by the Truth God looks after all statuses of people looking out for the devout and determined in God to live righteous in His Truth. His Truth brought about a Son to overcome all division living faith by the hope we place in Charity’s love. The New Covenant of Love gave us the Beatitudes on the side of a mountain teaching the multitude how blessed one can be when they give their all to the Call of God.
The Call of God asks us to teach as much as we are to just be a Beacon for God and the Salvation He has only offered by His Son blessings. Here, a poor person is rich while the ones who mourn will be comforted even if they are meek for the land will give way to feed the hungry giving them reasons to be righteous satisfied by the mercy received from another whose clean heart sees the Father in the peace they enjoy as Children of God. Even in persecution we are blessed by our obedience to His Name where reward lasts for all Eternity finding the Prophets persecuted before us awaiting our arrival. Amen.
Pray with me. Dear LORD, we pray You bless us LORD as we thirst for Your Truth. LORD, from Psalm 115:12a-13 I chant, “The LORD remembers us and will bless us, will bless those who fear the LORD, small and great alike.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 115- Hallelujah our forever blessing dead will live in hell
David asked for glory
Honoring only God
Not the people’s story
Faithfulness in His rod
Say nations why is God’s whereabouts asked
Look knew to look to heaven and grasp
The Will He gives as He does Eternity lasts
Gold and silver hands human smelling trash
They feel not smell not see not a sound
Trust anyone like them can be found
Without His shield they’ll soon be bound
Trusts of Aaron God gave us help to astound
Blessed by all He remembers so well
Number increased as if you can’t tell
Earth and heaven blesses us as His Eternal spell
Hallelujah our forever blessing dead will live in hell
Day One Hundred Sixteen Psalm One Hundred Sixteen
I called on the Name of the LORD, “O LORD, save my life!” Gracious is the LORD and righteous; yes, our God is merciful. The LORD protects the simple; I was helpless, but He saved me. Psalm 116:4-6
Many of us have felt the urgency to call out to God asking for rescue finding more than a safety with the Truth. Maybe you were caught in a whirlwind of addiction or maybe you had a major health concern that sapped every ounce of energy from your soul making you lay in a state of helplessness. No matter the circumstance we as King David can relate to the need of rescue. Even from the smallest of daily routines to the biggest decision of our lives we must be willing to call out to God in practice grasping His Word daily as we speak to Him in prayer openly offering proclamation eternally.
When we are in trouble, we call out to God but when we give our all to the Father we call out to Him constantly whether feeling ill or just sick-and-tired of feeling nothing for I believe all humanity aches to know God and the delight of His Salvation. There is a need for obedience in righteousness as provided to each by God’s Rescue where finding ourselves “helpless” is indeed a feeling of grace when swooped away from the runaway train as much as the whisper of evil’s selfish desires of the flesh finding no faith in fantasy’s folly. I share His Rescue of Christ by thinking of Him constantly relating everything I do in His Name whether in private or public my passion is Truth. Amen.
Pray with me. Dear LORD, we pray we call out to You LORD for everything. LORD, from Psalm 116:13-14 I chant, “I will raise the Cup of Salvation and call on the Name of the LORD. I will pay my vows to the LORD in the presence of all his people.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 116- Righteous grace merciful rest hallelujah Truth
In need of rescue when good things happen?
Calling on God when things are really snapping?
Forgetting God until life let’s some crap in?
Either way God wants your obedience not passing
The call Psalm 116 reads of rescue
Death thwarted God grants you
David asked his voice have due
God’s Rescue of Salvation to prove
Righteous grace merciful rest hallelujah Truth
Day One Hundred Seventeen Psalm One Hundred Seventeen
His mercy for us is strong; the faithfulness of the LORD is forever. Hallelujah! Psalm 117:2
Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these Commandments and teaches others to do so will be called least in the Kingdom of Heaven. But whoever obeys and teaches these Commandments will be called greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven. Matthew 5:19
We act upon a mercy that lasts forever! We live for the faithfulness of Truth God provides forever! There is nothing any of us can do to provide a complete understanding of His Mystery that He simply asks us to obey to live in a complete state of grace by rebuking the evil one’s desires of selfishness of fleeting gratification by the broken promises your life represents. The consecration of one’s life is not the shame you experience in the darkness of sin but the open proclamation of God in every circumstance you can ever imagine your life to represent.
To live unashamed of Christ is to live with Christ in every thought, action and deed. Oh, this doesn’t mean you’re not going to get mad or experience anxiety about running late or not being able to satisfy other people’s requests. On the contrary, God reminds us His love is “forever” by the Light He gave to the world from the Cross of Redemption that allows forgiveness to be recognized as the very Light we are to admire and live by all of humanity glorifying our Heavenly Father living His deeds of mercy. Amen.
Pray with me. Dear LORD, we pray to obey and teach Your Truth of Salvation. LORD, from Psalm 117:1 I chant, “Praise the LORD, all you nations! Extol Him, all you peoples!” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 117- Forever is never a rehearsal
David must have been tired?
Or was Psalm 117 secure?
Extoling no one to be a liar
Supremacy will Eternally endure
The psalms shortest song of daze
Two versus all nations must admire
The LORD must be totally praised
Asking the peoples to extol what He inspires
Strong is the Truth of His mercy
We owe our life to faithfulness of Him
Forever is never a rehearsal
Hallelujah forever to win
Day One Hundred Eighteen Psalm One Hundred Eighteen
Better to take refuge in the LORD than to put one’s trust in mortals. Ps 118:8
We naturally want to listen to the world’s hearsay for it is in what we hear others say that we are drawn to witness life’s consequences from risks one takes achieving triumph increasing temptation tasting desires of the heart. We especially want to hear what famous people think, say or do because somehow they are different than you and me succeeding where we failed hoping in glory instead of seeking and knowing grace.
King David basked in the glory of God in and out of the Temple area singing in precessions that glorified God in all things sharing the grace God illuminates the world with. We must give God credit for all instances seeking grace living not as a gamble. By placing your trust in God you can see the success of Truth by the determination to become your heart’s desire seeing more in His Light than without it. Announce as David in verse 14. “The LORD, my strength and might, has become my Savior.” Amen.
Pray with me. Dear LORD, we pray Trust You LORD with all. LORD, from Psalm 118:24-25 I chant, “This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice in it and be glad. LORD, grant Salvation! LORD, grant good fortune!!” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 118- Forever endures mercy good thanks in manifestation
Forever mercy good LORD of thanks
Forever enduring mercy of all houses to praise
We who fear the LORD praise His Eternal mercy daze
Free I am set never lost in a maze never afraid
Mortals against me and God’s Triumph
Trust not mortals by God’s line up
Nor princes trust who can’t make their mind up
Nations surrendered surrounded the king he places in confinement
Off they were cut thorns thrown in a fire
LORD’s Name must become everyone’s desire
Help came for David the whole world can admire
Valiant deliverance righteousness by the Savior to inspire
Cornerstone rejected by builders will grant Salvation
Standing as the Truth of the world’s foundation
Glad we will rejoice in His eyes wonderful situations
All are blessed coming in the Name of libations
Forever endures mercy good thanks in manifestation
Day One Hundred Nineteen Psalm One Hundred Nineteen
Let my soul live to praise you; may Your judgments give me help. I have wandered like a lost sheep; seek out Your servant, for I do not forget Your Commandments. Psalm 119:175-176
One must find themselves fascinated with God’s Word establishing practice day-after-day pondering in many cases of saintly experience minute-after-minute living in and loving prayer as one with God allows easy proclamation to occur. The longest of all of David’s Psalms runs a course of 176 versus singing and proclaiming the Decrees of God as a course for constant celebration reminding us we too should keep God First in every aspect of our lives forming bonds of Truth praying by seeking the lost children of God.
Fascination for Truth is the life of faith, hope and love of Charity many around you may be wanting but unsure how to practice, pray and proclaim their way past the wants of society’s flash and flair of excess. I encourage you all to carry your Bible as something Living and Breathing by the Light of Christ’s Foundation of the world. My wife and I both find this captivation serving our LORD in devout active service to the Church and the humanity of all in the lure of living in Truth. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to live in love with all Your Commands fascinated by living in Truth. LORD, from Psalm 119:81 I chant, “My soul longs for Your Salvation; I put my hope in Your Word!” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 119- Blameless hearts walk careful observing commandments

Day One Hundred Twenty Psalm One Hundred Twenty
LORD, deliver my soul from lying lips, from a treacherous tongue. Ps 120:2
“Again you have heard that it was said to your ancestors, ‘Do not take a false oath, but make good to the Lord all that you vow.’ Let your ‘Yes’ mean ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No’ mean ‘No.’ Anything more is from the evil one. Matthew 5:33, 37
There will always be people who will want to live their life in a lie many times seemingly bringing you upon their fallacies without a moment’s notice to prepare yourself for the consequences that will soon follow. We can step aside in the Name of Truth recognizing the events as detrimental to the life of faith, hope and love. I think that’s the reason why I love living righteous for God as God so instructs knowing Truth trumps reason allowing respect, regard and reputation to live in honor of love.
This is a life of practice performing only for God’s use in every aspect life has to offer. Life is given freedom to choose leaving not dishonor with the people you interact with on a daily basis but to let them see joy in your heart by the peace you feel from living in Christ’s Salvation. Maybe that’s singing a low tune or repeating a particular Scripture during the day. “Do not take a false oath, but make good to the Lord all that you vow.” Admire God First bestowing honor maintaining character for Truth. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray our yes will mean yes and our no will mean no. LORD, from Psalm 120:1 I chant, “The LORD answered me when I called in my distress!” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 120- Besides more God will inflict
Divine rescue David would vent
One of fifteen songs called an ascent
Distress answered the Lord to prevent
Tongues treacherous protected soul no argument
Besides more God will inflict
Arrows sharpened wood coals predict
Peace hated by foreigner’s predicament
War they want only peace spoken can prevent

Psalm One Hundred Twenty-One
The LORD will guard you from all evil; He will guard your soul. Psalm 121:7
Finally, brothers, rejoice. Mend your ways, encourage one another, agree with one another, live in peace, and the God of love and peace will be with you. 2nd Corinthians 13:11
The soulistic journey you are on is guarded at all times when you live rejoiceful encouraging those around known and unknown to love one another in peace getting along with others as you want God to get along with you. I like to think my soul rests in the palm of His Hand eternally guarded from evil removed from ways I mended with God in my appointed time living with His Spirit of Truth in the Name of Forgiveness.
When we finally see we are truly unworthy, we can find favor in the mending of our ways daily in practice humming psalms and living in peace. We all have to face Truth eventually where the mending of our heart’s desire will encourage your works while guarding your soul. Only you can face God in the silence of your own heart or in open proclamation the rejoicing we feel obedient to Salvation’s Call; Jesus! Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray we live in You at peace from evil. Prayers for a Marine named Jonathan. Prayers for Closer Walk Media dot com listener’s intentions requests across the world. Prayers for Kairos Prison Ministry of DCI#49. Greg Bishop has our never-ending prayers. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. LORD, from Psalm 121:5 I chant, “The LORD is your Guardian; the LORD is your shade at your right hand.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 121- Soul protected forever guardian endeavor
Help from the mountains

Day One Hundred Twenty-Two
Psalm One Hundred Twenty-Two
For the sake of my brothers and friends I say, “Peace be with you.” For the sake of the House of the LORD, our God, I pray for your good. Psalm 122:8-9
You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’ But I say to you, offer no resistance to one who is evil. When someone strikes you on (your) right cheek, turn the other one to him as well. Matthew 5:38-39
We find it hard to accept the Truth knowing as my mother might say, “the Truth hurts,” when it comes to living up to reality. We have even a tougher time saying no to evil for in its lure of excess or instant gratification sin draws humanity even more to the core of destruction. I remember reading one time about a saint who said his obedience and love of Christ was accepted no matter the difficulties that lie ahead once he made the decision to give his all to placing God First and living for the Salvation of Jesus.
There will always be a lure to striking back when affected by overzealous individuals who steal something God has asked you to let go of and not resist accepting with faith, hope and love as your guide to any and all Charity you share with no expectations of a return. To offer more seems such an insult but to give as God instructs brings about souls to Truth where being docile isn’t a show of weakness but a show of power that will silence rudeness in a twinkle of an eye sheepishly grinning no matter the pain. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to accept all no matter the difficulty. LORD, from Psalm 122:8 I chant, “For the peace of (the world) pray: May those who love You prosper!” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 122- Praying for peace never a spiteful dare
Zion’s song obeyed by David’s pilgrims
Rejoicing when asked to go to His house
Gates standing within their Jerusalem
Round about the city a wall as a spouse
Thanks all tribes give to the LORD’s Name
Decreed justice thrones of David’s chair
Prosper the love the servants willfully gain
Praying for peace never a spiteful dare
Towers prosperity ramparts within the streets
You with tranquility all friends or brothers peace
Good David did pray in the LORD’s House he greets
Psalm 122 obeyed three times to visit by decree
Day One Hundred Twenty-Three
Psalm One Hundred Twenty-Three
Show us favor, LORD, show us favor, for we have our fill of contempt. Our souls are more than sated with mockery from the insolent, with contempt from the arrogant. Psalm 123:3-4
“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Heavenly Father, for He makes His sun rise on the bad and the good, and causes rain to fall on the just and the unjust. Matthew 5:43-45
Generation-after-generation has had their fill of contempt from the arrogant asking God over-and-over again to end the mockery of Truth by the evil inflicted in sin of taking the life of another as much as denying Him by living not the life of faith, hope and love. In Christ we have been asked to love our enemies praying fervently for those who persecute you and Christ’s peace, His Protection that emendates your very being with Charity that takes away all fear leaving you in peace.
Will death fall upon the world disintegrating by the whisk of God’s breath sending our planet into another dimension? We look out at the sky and see only as far as the eye can see but imagine the endless and vast feeling of knowing a favor we breathe and enjoy even in the midst of appeared persecution. God does make the rain fall on the good and the bad asking us to leave judgment at Heaven’s Door. Here, we find Salvation to unworthily enter after even years of denial to ask for and receive living righteously for God praying for the unjust who give good a bad name. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray for the mockers and the unjust today asking You LORD give them peace in You to stay. LORD, from Psalm 123:1 I chant, “To You I raise my eyes, to You Enthroned in Heaven.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 123- Humiliation arrogant contempt mockery soul will comply
Ascents song raising the kings eyes
Heaven calls Enthroned on high
Mistress hand servant maids cry
LORD David called for favor we surely can’t deny
Humiliation arrogant contempt mockery soul will comply
Day One Hundred Twenty-Four
Psalm One Hundred Twenty-Four
Our help is in the Name of the LORD, the Maker of Heaven and earth. Psalm 124:8
Take care not to perform righteous deeds in order that people may see them; otherwise, you will have no recompense from your heavenly Father. When you give alms, do not let your left hand know what your right is doing, so that your almsgiving may be secret. And your Father who sees in secret will repay you. Matthew 6:1, 3-4
We wonder about almsgiving thinking we should give openly discussing what kind of deed we have accomplished to others in the name of self. Once we learn to give in the Name of the LORD by placing God First in everything we do, we accomplish alms giving in the consecrated way of being One with our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ! It is the feeling of faith, hope and love driven by the practice, prayer and proclamation of God’s Truth in every aspect your prayer life has to offer.
We have learned that reading your Bible takes practice knowing each verse as much as the same verse revisited over-and-over again touches your heart in a different way leading you in a prayer life that benefits from such practice encouraging your evangelization resulting in alms giving that resides in Him. Once we learn God wants us to live in Him by example, we find Charity in our soul wanting to give by the very thought of faith, hope and love of Truth. It is our True Helper His grace of love. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to give in Your Name expecting nothing in return. LORD, from Psalm 124:6a I chant, “Blessed is the LORD.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 124- David never ignored Help Name LORD

Day One Hundred Twenty-Five
Psalm One Hundred Twenty-Five
Do good, LORD, to the good, to those who are upright of heart. Psalm 125:4
As the Living Father sent Me and I draw life from the Father, so whoever eats Me will also draw life from Me. This is the Bread which has come down from Heaven; it is not like the bread our ancestors ate: they are dead, but anyone who eats this Bread will live forever. John 6:57-58
If we call out to God more in plight, then we are missing the communion of prayer to be One with His Spirit receiving the Good David instructs humanity to ask for and welcome as the grace we all crave but lack the surrender to call on each and every moment of our lives. Jesus came to the world to offer the Truth in the Life of the Spirit drawn from the Father as described by the faith, hope and love Jesus lived and died for so many years ago. If only we can be obedient to His Command of eating His flesh receiving His Body, Soul and Divinity of a Mystery explained once mentioned barely consumed daily.
To believe in the True Presence as discussed by Christ and described as existent in John 6:55, “For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink,” describes a Mystery none of us can understand but does allow us a daily “True” communion with Christ abiding in His Command to “live forever.” The callings on God in good gaining grace granting the upright His Communion exudes the Life of Christ by the love, faith and hope their life displays in the silent joys of prayers granting thoughts, actions and deeds to be a Light of obedient surrender. The LORD left the Good in His Son’s Communion. Real Food. Real Drink. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray Your Good LORD envelopes our love of Communion as the Real Body and Real Drink of Christ. LORD, from Psalm 125:1 I chant, “Those trusting in the LORD are like Mount Zion, unshakable, forever enduring.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 125- Forever unshakable free
Exiled anxiety plea
Enduring trusting mountain
Forever unshakable free
Zion surrounds them
Forever people agree
Prevail not appalling
Allotted land received
Evil hands calling
Heart upright freed
Good sought LORD
Evildoers restrictive retreat
Down deep ignored
Peace Israel assured
Day One Hundred Twenty-Six
Psalm One Hundred Twenty-Six
Those who sow in tears will reap with cries of joy. Psalm 126:5
For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be. Matthew 6:21
When freed from captivity, whether it be the slavery of a people or slavery of self to sin, we find cries of joy in the midst of the struggles to plant a new harvest as much as we seek nourishment grow into a new life. This takes practice of reading your Bible daily forgoing not the aspect of prayer relishing the thoughts, actions and deeds of loving and living the treasure of Truth exuding from your heart as a Beacon of Christ.
Like the Old saying depicts for life also is relished by souls surrendered to hunting for valuables in the souls of the lost, lonely and languished, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure” being the ones we ignore on the streets of roofless living by individuals who strike up a smell before they get near you. Here, is the real “treasure” Christ speaks of as the Charity of hearts should be beating to reap and grow from. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray we sow the seeds of Truth amongst the treasures of love. LORD, from Psalm 126:3 I chant, “The LORD has done great things for us; Oh, how happy we were!” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 126- Weeping tears eventually Cries joy sown
Rejoicing Eternally implored

Day One Hundred Twenty-Seven
Psalm One Hundred Twenty-Seven
Unless the LORD build(s) the house, they labor in vain who build. Unless the LORD guard the city, in vain does the guard keep watch. Psalm 127:1
If God so clothes the grass of the field, which grows today and is thrown into the oven tomorrow, will he not much more provide for you, O you of little faith? So do not worry and say, ‘What are we to eat?’ or ‘What are we to drink?’ or ‘What are we to wear?’ All these things the pagans seek. Your Heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the Kingdom (of God) and His Righteousness, and all these things will be given you besides. Do not worry about tomorrow; tomorrow will take care of itself. Sufficient for a day is its own evil. Matthew 6:30-34
To labor in vain exhausts energy of worry that can rob your soul of faith in the One and Only Creator of life the Deity felt and relished called God. Worry gives way to loss of appetite, attitude and allowance of tolerance, toughness and tenacity of practicing a labor loved and given by God. Look around you and feel the presence of God in every little detail where the birds in the sky sow not to gather but flourish in the design of life’s nourishments given unto to them as God gives unto you.
By seeking the Kingdom of God First, your labors are not in vain posing you to reap His Harvest destined only for His benefits. Your practice each day is guiding you to God’s Will of fulfillment living in the righteousness of Him active for the Kingdom First projects your prayers call out for His Purpose. If we can only learn to do this in our moment-by-moment lives daily placing worries at the Foot of the Cross enveloping Jesus as the Builder, the Protector and the Redeemer of all our life has to offer. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to seek First Your Kingdom. LORD, from Psalm 127:2 I chant, “It is vain for you to rise early and put off your rest at night, To eat bread earned by hard toil— all this God gives to His beloved in sleep.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 127- Destroyed foes shame stopped at his gate
Solomon recalled watch not in vain
House built by the LORD’s labor
City protected in His Name
Useless without labor’s Maker
Night rest not vain unless early rise
Toil hard earned bread they eat
Nothing will God ever disguise
Beloved will get the Truth they seek
Rewards come in sons the womb’s gift
Born by God’s warrior arrows fate
Quiver filled with them to exist
Destroyed foes shame stopped at his gate
Day One Hundred Twenty-Eight
Psalm One Hundred Twenty-Eight
Blessed are all who fear the LORD, and who walk in His Ways. Psalm 128:1
We can’t escape sin without the fear we give our Creator without taking every ounce of our being and give God every waking second of our love and desire to live in His Truth. We want to talk about Truth as if it’s an understanding void of accepting the consequences by a subconscious that lives Redeemed. There are so many examples of this one would be foolish to try and single them out. Maybe marriage is one topic or living as One without marriage is another reality speaks loud to those who live the sin a majority has begun to implore across humanity.
I know it’s hard for I lived the same and I for one look at forgiveness as the reason why God has Commanded us not to judge. I suppose the gossip of life breeds more sin by the lack of fearing God’s ultimate Judgment given by ONLY Him and not an ounce of another’s position or situation. Only God will Judge you and me teaching as we practice to embrace His Will where your life represents love. “Walk in His Ways” righteously living as God Commands. “Just so will the man be blessed who fears the LORD.” Psalm 128 describes the reverence of life to Truth is Eternal Unfailing Blessed. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray our life is lived in fear to always represent Your Truth. LORD, from Psalm 128:2 I chant, “What your hands provide you will enjoy; you will be blessed and prosper.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 128- Soul ways found we eternally revere
Ways we walk blessed fears
Soul ways found we eternally revere
Prospered by hands God enjoys so dear
Home filled fruit vine wife to endear
Plants of olive table of children appear
LORD blessed the man’s fear prosperity seen
Life and its days Zion to always adhere

Day One Hundred Twenty-Nine
Psalm One Hundred Twenty-Nine
Viciously have they attacked me from my youth, yet they have not prevailed against me. But the just LORD cut me free from the ropes of the wicked. Psalm 129:2, 4
Stop judging, that you may not be judged. For as you judge, so will you be judged, and the measure with which you measure will be measured out to you. Matthew 7:1-2
The desires of the heart can draw you away from Truth attacking the very core of a life you lead in faith, hope and love experiencing wicked attacks of self-confidence by forgoing the act of prayer by the love of self-assurance. Oh, we surely must be self-confident as life calls us to be to survive and fulfill our inner destiny but I beg you to find self-assurance in God’s Will forgoing not the act of prayer or practice instilling in your soul the need to be self-assured in Him and Him alone.
Here, you’ll be cut from the ropes of the wicked visible and invisible to the naked eye that can judge you by your willingness to inspect other lives in daily conversations ruining your desire to practice let alone pray. Try not to inspect in thoughts but in gander the lives led around you by the need of people’s Charity. Maybe this Charity will be the conversation of someone lonely or maybe it’ll be a meal for someone hungry or just maybe it’ll be the measure of constant love you live by placing God First. As my beautiful wife and I life to say, “All else will fall into place.” Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to gander instead of judge. LORD, from Psalm 129:8b I chant, “The blessing of the LORD be upon you! We bless you in the Name of the LORD!” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 129- No one calls a blessing for the Reaper
David writes of attacks
From his youth he now lacks
Prevailing not a whip upon his back
Now say Israel the king who used God as fact
Furrows along his plowing back traced
Wicked ropes freely cut by a just LORD
Disgrace recoiled haters of Zion’s place
Fill never the hand’s reaper even arms binders ignored
Out to call none passing seeker
You upon be the blessing keeper
LORD the Name surpassing Truth deeper
No one calls a blessing for the Reaper
Day One Hundred Thirty
Psalm One Hundred Thirty
If You, LORD, keep account of sins Lord, who can stand? But with You is forgiveness and so You are revered. I wait for the LORD, my soul waits and I hope for His Word. Psalm 130:3-5
The wonders of the LORD’s forgiveness allows such an escape from sin by the mercy our God gives to all by simply confessing the Truth and being sorry for the dilemma you may have caused from your selfishness. This should drive you to revere the LORD in all aspects of your life placing hope in His Word to guide your every thought, action and deed wrapping your soul in the midst of His Eternal Love.
David reminds us today to practice what we preach utilizing our faith, hope and love to search His Word daily forgoing not the act of prayer aloud loving reconciliation the LORD affords all to experience. Practice is something we all must do to abide in God’s Will to accomplish the Charity we should all love to experience as daily participants of living an open proclamation of the One and Only Salvation from sin; Jesus! Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to place our hope in Your Word LORD. LORD, from Psalm 130:7 I chant, “Hope in the LORD, For with the LORD is mercy, with Him is plenteous Redemption!” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 130- Sins Redeemed the world His Lullaby
LORD is called from the depths of sin
Mercy he hopes as his cry begins
Ears attentive sins accounted by Hand
Revered are You by those who can’t stand
Word of hope waiting soul’s cries
Sentinels daybreak awaits to abide
Redemption plenteous mercy never denied
Sins Redeemed the world His Lullaby
Day One Hundred Thirty-One
Psalm One Hundred Thirty-One
I have stilled my soul, Like a weaned child to its mother, weaned is my soul. Psalm 131:2
Not everyone who says to me, ‘LORD, LORD,’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven, but only the one who does the Will of my Father in Heaven. Matthew 7:21
I liken the Will of God to placing my soul in the stillness of His Truth weaned only by the Word of God living the practice, prayer and proclamation I openly show never denying Him proudly wearing Christ’s Face on a tie or the Holy Spirit a-top a Cross attached to my clothing that the Father has used as a Symbol for a life of faith, hope and love of Charity for over 2000 years. I have learned to say that Jesus reminds us that we are to never deny Him or He will deny us before His Father in Heaven.
Today Jesus is reminding us again that living a life of selfish love denies the joy of Eternal Love where living your soul as Christ in Charity means not the amount of money you give without the Works of Compassion we live in the sweat, blood and tears of Truth. As I carried my friend to his shady place under a tree yesterday, Jesus’ face was a beacon of Light looking up to Heaven from the bottom of my tie drawing eyes of wonder and spite that made me think of the song “I have a Light” that I began singing low in the silence of waiting to hear the preacher let others gather around. In the stillness of my soul was surrounded in the Will of my Father in Heaven. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to still our soul for You LORD. LORD, from Psalm 131:1 I chant, “LORD, my heart is not proud; nor are my eyes haughty. I do not busy myself with great matters, with things too sublime for me.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 131- Forever now LORD hope all to achieve
Me sublime too David did agree
Matters great prove busy as a bee
Haughty eyes true sin would disagree
Proud heart knew the love of God to see
Soul mine weaned one would believe
Comfort as mother bosom to conceive
Soul stilled in the joy of love’s reprieve
Forever now LORD hope all to achieve

Psalm One Hundred Thirty-Two
I will clothe its priests with Salvation; its devout shall shout for joy. Psalm 132:16
We have come to know and to believe in the love God has for us. God is love, and whoever remains in love remains in God and God in Him. 1st John 4:16
Come to Me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for your selves. For My yoke is easy, and My burden light. Matthew 11:28-30
Many times we often wonder where rest can be found for your selves looking around corners that seem to be constant dead ends. You might ask yourself how a corner can be a dead end when it seems to take us to other locations when in fact it becomes the burdened labor we undertake each day guided not by the Word of God but by the words set in backdrops of the flash and flair of society’s addiction to more of self.
David prophesized that our priests will be covered in Salvation allowing us a constant yoke of ease that remains a part of your daily practice of living and loving the Word of God. I truly take to heart the notion of denying Jesus before others is the corners of selfish desires steered away from hearing Christ saying to the Father, “He has remained in Me as in You Father loving as our love can be.” When you remain in God, you learn to enjoy meekness as the humility of looking not for corners of self but for sharing the Salvation taught in the Word of God to give you heartfelt rest. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to be taught by Christ as we remain in Him proclaiming Salvation’s ring. LORD, from Psalm 132:7-8 I chant, “Let us enter His Dwelling; let us worship at His footstool.” “Arise, LORD, come to Your resting place, You and Your Mighty Ark.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

The centurion replied, ‘Sir, I am not worthy to have You under my roof; just give the Word and my servant will be cured.’ Matthew 8:8
King David knew the importance of getting along as a community lifting his fellow citizens up in song to strengthen their solidarity and commitment to the king but more importantly to the One and Only True God. Unity was as struggle for the early communities of life just as much as they are today. You can see how David wants them to know they are just as blessed as the king can be speaking of holy oils or the blessing of dew to water the rainless crops.
One would recognize the importance of Biblical Hebrew using the word brothers as being unilateral across sexes including both male and female referring to them as the chosen children of Israel; one blood one community for all smarter yet reverent to the Source of Life in faith, hope and love proving the old adage, “two heads are better than one.” Jesus brought Three Heads to confer this reverence upon one making four persons to begin the process of absolute surrender God’s Decreed blessing, “life for evermore!” He made us worthy by Hanging on a Tree for you and for me. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray we come together as One with you as well as the unity our world holds for Truth. LORD, from Psalm 133:3b I chant, “There the LORD has decreed a blessing, life for evermore!” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 133- One together dwell brothers tell
One together dwell brothers tell
Everyone counted good and pleasant
David seemed to never refer to hell
Keeping children from sinning to prevent it
Oil upon Aaron runs over together all
Robed head like dew Zion mountain’s dressing
Mount Hermon was a sight to behold tall
Evermore Decreed LORD Life Blessing

Psalm One Hundred Thirty-Four
May the LORD bless you from Zion, the Maker of Heaven and earth. Psalm 134:3
The Lord will rescue me from every evil threat and will bring me safe to His Heavenly Kingdom. To Him be glory forever and ever. Amen. Second Timothy 4:18
And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this Rock I will build My Church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it. Matthew 16:18
Once again Kind David asks his kingdom to shout their praises to the One and Only God as he does through many of his psalms encouraging the complete surrender Paul undertook that rescues us all from every evil threat because as Paul you too must glorify God First in everything you do. We all want to go to Heaven but we struggle with the practice, prayer and proclamation of Christ’s Church Paul witnessed to that Peter built as the Rock every Christian denomination today gets their Foundation from.
We have witnessed the growth of the Church for over 2000 years described by Christ to Peter as the Truth that would remain prevalent over evil’s selfish desires of sin. As Paul gave example of living in this state of obedience, we too must take the time practice our faith by the Foundational examples given in the Word of God daily where your practice and prayer are exemplified by every proclamation your life represents in silence and aloud as the joy of faith, hope and love of Salvation’s all. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray we overcome all evil by our love of Your Truth. LORD, from Psalm 134:1 I chant, “O come, bless the LORD, all you servants of the LORD You who stand in the House of the LORD throughout the nights.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 134- Earth and Heaven Maker will bless by lifting your hands
Nights throughout man will eternally stand
Backdrop LORD’s House prayerful servants band
Servants of the LORD are blessed who truly understand
Earth and Heaven Maker will bless by lifting your hands

Psalm One Hundred Thirty-Five
Hallelujah! Praise the Name of the LORD! Praise, you servants of the LORD, Who stand in the house of the LORD, in the courts of the house of our God! Praise the LORD, for the LORD is good! Sing to His Name, for it brings joy! Psalm 135:1-3
The beauty of God’s grace has come to me by the praise and worship I proclaim in every aspect of my life and to encourage the growth of this relationship is the key to staying focused in your practice of reading your Bible daily and often during the course of your life’s work to bring about a joy never felt before but comes continuously once you really surrender your all to knowing His Truth.
The beauty of Truth allows you to know the freedom of looking over your shoulder wondering if you created something in your lack of voicing absolute sincerity in every word you sing from your soul’s beginning to end. As David reminds humanity today to praise and sing faith, hope and love, the faithful feel the bringing of joy upon the surroundings of their life by God releasing grace and gratitude in every aspect of their lives to encourage Salvation’s call in your surrendered practice, prayer and proclamation. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to praise You LORD constantly throughout our days our years our life. Prayers for our daily radio show on Closer Walk Media dot com. Prayers for Kairos Prison Ministry of DCI#49. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. LORD, from Psalm 135:13 I chant, “O LORD, Your Name is forever, Your renown, from generation to generation!” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 135- Hands human cannot make His works
Praise is the call from David’s depths
Stand in the House for good is praise
Kingdom of God entered by Precepts
Joy brings His Name all courts obey
Desires our LORD lives across all the earth
Heaven is His clouds replace the dirt
Storehouse of wind forth brings worth
Lightning He makes clouds of storm rehearse
Egypt learned His strength firstborn down struck
Alike the beast or human died sudden and abrupt
Servants of Pharaoh filled their lungs with pestilence dust
Kings mighty down struck ashes to ashes dust to dust
Heritage taken by the kings God took as corrupt
Making the land for Israel to adjust
From slavery for years every tear a must
Forever generations call on the only Name they can trust
Servant of His receives mercy no fuss
Hands human cannot make His works
See not the mouths who speak by luck
Mouths breath what they believe we cuss
Hallelujah all houses LORD blessed Zion in God they lust
Day One Hundred Thirty-Six
Psalm One Hundred Thirty-Six
The Lord remembered us in our low estate, for His mercy endures forever; Freed us from our foes, for His mercy endures forever; And gives bread to all flesh, or His mercy endures forever. Psalm 136:23-25
He said to them, “Why are you terrified, O you of little faith?” Then He got up, rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was great calm. Matthew 8:26
When you favor God to repeatedly bring you or your situations mercy, then you too will find the same grace King David did so many years ago by the practice of reading your Bible daily in song or deep meditation reading aloud the mystery’s God places around us that creates faith not a single person can take away or steal. You must believe with all your heart and soul that “His mercy” does “endure forever.”
Jesus asked time-and-time again to keep the faith by the life you lead in surrender to Truth. We must take this faith and stay calm unafraid to bask in His glory by the prayer life we lead to live righteous for His Salvation. Jesus taught God’s mercy endured forever by the faith, hope and love you live never denying but abiding in His Word to hold onto the great calm Jesus instills in every obedient soul never hearing Jesus say,
“Why are you terrified, O you of little faith?” Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to live calm in faith knowing Your mercy endures forever. LORD, from Psalm 136:26 I chant, “Praise the God of Heaven, for His mercy endures forever.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 136- Forever Mercy His Endures each refrain you hear
David asked all to eternally revere
The life of love with nothing to fear
Twenty six lines adoration so dear
Forever Mercy His Endures each refrain you hear
Heaven and God Who Created love for the lowly and mere

Psalm One Hundred Thirty-Seven
By the rivers of Babylon there we sat weeping when we remembered Zion. Psalm 137:1
Seek good and not evil, that you may live; Then truly the LORD, the God of hosts, will be with you as you claim. Amos 5:14
I often think and pray to God that people of the world would truly get what it means to be a lover of Truth. It means no sacrifices for the finality of sacrifice occurred in Christ. It means no more revenge for the love of life creates harmony the world over seeks of all mankind. Truth means placing faith in each other as a common good feeling of trust. Truth means hope no one will judge you for you being you. Truth is love we show for Charity without cost abiding in nothing left to prove.
We want God to be with us not acknowledging He already dwells within us until we surrender to all He gives us by our thoughts, actions and deeds of absolute Trust that Truly defines us. Loving Truth isn’t rude or obnoxious. Loving Truth has no room for judgment. Loving Truth is the good you live in without a deed list for Truth is Charity’s heart of forgiveness. Singing for your captors is hard but sing for your LORD sends regard allowing how we pray to rescue the needy near and far. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray sing to You LORD as we seek good in our thoughts, actions and deeds. LORD, from Psalm 137:4 I chant, “How could we sing a song of the LORD in a foreign land?.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 137- Joy tormentors ask for songs without feelings
Zion remembered weeping by Babylon rivers
Harps hung no feelings to deliver
Captors want us to sing of our beginnings
Joy tormentors ask for songs without feelings
Forget how Jerusalem if forget hand right
Palate stuck tongue no remembrance sight
Vengeance was the reminder king’s delight
Foundations sworn leveled destruction our plight
Babylon Daughter Desolate rock back pay smashing seized children’s life
Day One Hundred Thirty-Eight
Psalm One Hundred Thirty-Eight
I thank You, LORD, with all my heart; in the presence of the angels to You I sing. Psalm 138:1
Jesus came, although the doors were locked, and stood in their midst and said, “Peace be with you.” Then He said to Thomas, “Put your finger here and see My hands, and bring your hand and put it into My side, and do not be unbelieving, but believe.” Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!” Jesus said to him, “Have you come to believe because you have seen Me? Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed.” John 20:26b-29
We all know the feeling of praising God with all our heart and soul. In the midst of your being you feel the presence of the One and Only God in forms only God has come to understand and humanity seeks known and unknown. Right there inside you feel a sensation that brings you so much joy He literally knocks you down but lifts you with such force at the same time making you know only one conclusion as the boys with such Good News their love of God does sing just as David would sing, “God’s not dead He’s surely alive living on the inside roaring like a lion.”
I pray we can practice daily what brings about this celebration as living instead of working for monetary selfish satisfaction gaining pride instead of action. When you give your all to placing God First, you recognize the Bible is the faith builder tool God brought to the world for you to share and grow with allowing sight only His grace will reveal. The sight of Charity in sweat or leisure for God asks us to surrender complete guidance of our thoughts, actions and deeds to be prayers of practice to not see but believe and sing daily, “God’s not dead He’s surely alive living the inside!” Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray with all our heart has to see You LORD and believe. LORD, from Psalm 138:3 I chant, “On the day I cried out, You answered; You strengthened my spirit.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 138- Rage enemies I walk dangers protected story
Singing thanks to the precious angels
Heart lost in praise of absolute Truth
God’s Temple Holy surely dangles
Mercy exalted Name as promised proof
Spirit strengthened as David cried
Answering by praise he would shout
Ways of singing glory can’t be denied
Earthly kings ways of sing great not pout
Afar the proud knows not the God of glory
Lowly He cares high as the Heavens sprout
Rage enemies I walk dangers protected story
Me saved by outstretched hand of God to tout
Hand that is Right forever endures in me he’d shout
Day One Hundred Thirty-Nine
Psalm One Hundred Thirty-Nine
LORD, You have probed me, You know me: You know when I sit and stand; You understand my thoughts from afar. Even before a word is on my tongue, LORD, You know it all. Psalm 139:1-2, 4
(Jesus) said, “Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do. Go and learn the meaning of the words, ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ I did not come to call the righteous but sinners.” Matthew 9:12-13
When we make our desires more than the Will of God, then we take ourselves into a plane of self-righteousness and begin excluding the practice we must undertake daily to remain well understanding the absolute repentance driven by faith we must all respond to one day whether we want to or not. We all must respond to death’s call in accident or age and we must see the outcome before He enters into our Eternal rest.
It is God who will take away your last breath whether caused by self-infliction, mistake-driven or purposeful-action reeling in an instant the true separation of church and state for God knows everything before it happens guiding the righteous to call the sinners to mercy teaching the Final Sacrifice has occurred in the Only Way to Heaven; Jesus Christ! Through you He will call the sick to practice and pray what God foretells by His Will of living Christ’s faith, hope and love of Charity. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to live Your Will LORD by the Charity we show to the sick of the world. LORD, from Psalm 139:13-14 I chant, “You formed my inmost being; You knit me in my mother’s womb. I praise You, because I am wonderfully made; wonderful are Your Works! My very self You know.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 139- Familiar ways past present even his guess
Leader described as David’s psalm
Probed by the LORD in every song
Thoughts God knows sifted travels rest
Familiar ways past present even his guess
Me upon Your hand of mercy and grace
Reach not the knowledge wonderful God states
Flee where from Your Spirit we face
Without knowledge hand right fast hold my mistakes
Darkness hides surely the light my night
Light of God day shines darkness ignite
As One the LORD sees all as the Eternal Light
Womb’s forming all knitted being inmost despite
Forming in secret by God’s Divine right
Hidden not bones earth’s depths delights
Be David came written all Book of Life
Designs vast precious destroying wicked’s fight
Hating those hating You by fate
In You LORD all must learn to relate
Heart known thoughts shown to state
Path ancient heart known by His Will to remake

Psalm One Hundred Forty
Deliver me, LORD, from the wicked; preserve me from the violent, from those who plan evil in their hearts, who stir up conflicts every day. Psalm 140:2-3
Once you take an in-depth look at the Psalms, you will see David employ every desired tactic to teach humanity how to practice daily calling out to God in all instances teaching the surrender obliges in Truth instilling forgiveness wrapping life in love. We look at life with good intentions seemingly expecting anyone you deal with or come to know to like you as God likes you but we do learn quickly that’s not the case. No matter how hard you try and don’t try someone is going to be wicked towards you from spite or jealousy.
Pain may come and go between two souls or a family of souls or a community of souls or a religion of souls or a humanity of souls enjoying the same pain to simply love God First. If you could hear the other’s prayer, maybe you could learn to be delivered by God in all circumstances turning the cheek or opening your arms to find God’s reactions; faith, hope and love. God’s love preserves you from the violence turning evil in the hearts of men to the joy of faith and hope of Christ’s Salvation. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to overcome spite by the love You LORD instill in our souls. LORD, from Psalm 140:13 I chant, “I know the LORD will take up the cause of the needy, justice for the poor.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 140- Ways of travel trap snares arrogance agreed
Violent wicked hearts employ
Tactics David wants to avoid
Hearts of evil tongues sharp annoy
Lips of venom serpents enjoy
Up they trip plotting wicked violence to see
Ways of travel trap snares arrogance agreed
David asked the LORD to hear his plea
One wicked do not allow his plan to succeed
Presence dwell upright Name thanks righteous are freed
Day One Hundred Forty-One
Psalm One Hundred Forty-One
Let my prayer be incense before You; my uplifted hands an evening offering. Psalm 141:2
Come to Me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
We often look for avenues to overcome the stress of our lives be it roads we travel to game-like entertainment or paths that lead us to tranquil scenes of leisure. We want to overcome stress or boredom or many times we just get tired of living a life of sin. God asks of us what we already know but learning how to live in faith, hope and love takes you to a place that overcomes all the emptiness your life once seemed to employ to a satisfied feeling of knowing the Risen LORD where peace and rest reside.
Maybe you feel this energized pleased gratification was every time you hear the words, “Jesus Christ is Risen!” So much so you immediately repeat the words, “He is Risen indeed.” Maybe you felt Jesus blow thoughts across your soul as your heard testimony that brought you to tears or electrified you with the Spirit of Truth. Either way the Charity God calls us to will now be more than just your church your life you will be keenly aware of all who are burdened where passing on the opposite side was the fear Truth overcame by practice, prayer and proclamation of Christ’s Salvation of peace.
Now is the time to establish the prayer life God instills in our hearts as a Communion He desires for all. God asks you to daily open your Bible and practice your faith as One with Him. God will reveal to you the beauty of grace unlike you’ve ever seen before as you learn to pray about everything your life represents being it a part of your thoughts, actions or deeds. Daily with me you’ll hear God’s Word in brevity encouraging you to follow along with me revealing ways to proclaim in silence and as loud as God anoints you to share. My prayer is we can practice, pray and proclaim the life of the Risen LORD enjoying poetry as the blessing He bestows to give you rest. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray You guide us LORD to the rest You Promised as Eternal. LORD, from Psalm 141:3 I chant, “Set a guard, LORD, before my mouth, keep watch over the door of my lips.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 141- Strike righteous person to stay Divine
David worshipped hands uplifted aloud
Please hear LORD the plea’s call
Hasten to my offering not proud
Guard my mouth from evil’s fall
Feast not on wickedness deeds
Let not evil feast where I incline
Pray overcome what mercy breeds
Strike righteous person to stay Divine
Day One Hundred Forty-Two
Psalm One Hundred Forty-Two
Lead my soul from prison, that I may give thanks to Your Name. Then the righteous shall gather around me because you have been good to me. Psalm 142:8
An official came forward, knelt down before Him, and said, “My daughter has just died. But come, lay Your hand on her, and she will live.” Matt 9:18b
It seems obvious to say that one’s company kept is an indication of your character many times leading you out of prison or visiting you inside a prison to encourage your soul to find a group of God’s righteous creating more souls to witness of His Kingdom. The visiting of prisoners takes more nerve than what most people share frightened of the unknown as much as we should be frightened to be without God.
We want God to come kneel beside us and hold our hands soothing us with hands that fashioned our very being trusting only by sight instead of expecting the healing or grace God promises over-and-over again in His Word. Sure, He asks us to practice our faith in so many ways that includes visiting the imprisoned within sharp wires of life’s mistakes as much as He wants us to visit the captives hiding in bushes begging on corners.
God asks us to service these sinners and saints sharing Salvation to see life beautiful being confident in your fright overcoming the fight our own minds create out of lacking trust of living the unknown. We all want our daughters to live gathering the righteous around by the good God does in every aspect of our lives. When we trust our souls to be freed from inner prisons, we find God’s hand leading us in His good we live to be. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray Your hand leads our souls to Truth. Novena day two for the Emmaus Men of St Louis. LORD, from Psalm 142:2-3 I chant, “With my own voice I cry to the LORD; with my own voice I beseech the LORD. Before Him I pour out my complaint, tell of my distress in front of Him.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 142- Prisoned soul led by righteous gathered endurance
Cave and prayer were hidden
Crying to the LORD he’d trace
Beseech the complaint I’m ridding
Spirit faint trap hidden I face
Perished escape unacknowledged fate
Care of not one on my right hand pursuers
Strong are they over me in my crying state
Me been good by God’s Name Your assurance
Prisoned soul led by righteous gathered endurance
Day One Hundred Forty-Three
Psalm One Hundred Forty-Three
In the morning let me hear of Your mercy, for in You I trust. Show me the path I should walk, for I entrust my life to You. Psalm 143:8
Then (Jesus) said to His Disciples, “The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few.” Matthew 9:37
David was the epitome of surrender teaching humanity the skills of trusting every minute detail of life to God. As David shows, we must ask God to show us the way by His Word where we seek to practice every day the mercy He bestows on every living creature. We must begin our day in thanksgiving to the Father for allowing us to see another breath alive in His Spirit the trust we place in His hope sanctified for His purpose allowing His grace to be a beacon in us for His love.
We are few yet numbered in majority because we all know the strength we have in Him yet the weakness we have on our own. Without Him we are nothing but selfish desires risking life by the flirtations the secular world offers in the instant of moment fleeting gratification that drips on the floor of characters but showers from above the abundance of His Salvation to forgive sin of self. Jesus knows we are weak without Him asking us illuminate the venues of our life with His Truth of faith, hope and love of Charity. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray for mercy daily as we harvest souls in Your Name. Novena day three for the Emmaus Men of St Louis. Prayers for our daily radio show on Closer Walk Media dot com.

Day One Hundred Forty-Four
Psalm One Hundred Forty-Four
LORD, what is man that you take notice of him; the son of man, that you think of him? Man is but a breath, his days are like a passing shadow. Psalm 144:3-4
The battle of life takes man to avenues of betrayal unless man places hope over impossibility relishing how life is to be practiced in love of Charity guided by the communication God has given to humanity since the beginning of time. David encountered this time-and-time again and he knew the only way to overcome the perils of deceitful sin was to call out to God in every circumstance his life had to offer.
We see David relish singing to God as a way to communicate anticipating God’s Promise as the way life should be. David wanted the people to know and trust God would deliver prosperity and peace by the confidence we aspired to in the practice, prayer and proclamation of God’s Will. We are but a passing shadow sucking our last breath according to God’s faith in us by the thanksgiving we place in His Truth.
Joining my Biblical study daily in brevity allows God’s Will to circumvent your will learning to practice what we preach in living only for Him. Daily I will share the Bible in rhyme hopefully allowing humanity to experience God in a lighthearted way of living the Three P’s of Christ’s Redemption. I’ve learned to simply place God First and my practice, prayer and proclamation is lived for His Name- the Name of Jesus! Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to place our hope in You LORD. LORD, from Psalm 144:15 I chant, “Blessed the people so fortunate; blessed the people whose God is the LORD.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

LORD delivered high hand untruth rescue

Psalm One Hundred Forty-Five
Great is the LORD and worthy of much praise, whose Grandeur is beyond understanding. Psalm 145:3
Go rather to the lost sheep. As you go, make this proclamation: ‘The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.’ Without cost you have received; without cost you are to give. Matthew 10:6a -8e
I believe God makes it very clear that He is truly “beyond understanding” instilling mystery that provides grace when we embrace His Truth without question filling our lives with conviction surrendering to meditation wrapping our lives in Salvation’s devotion. David again-and-again lived by example the continuance of praise he gave God and His Commands asking humanity to respect His Grandeur receiving grace-filled compassion to those who are devoted to Charity’s works of mercy.
Here, we find the beauty of Christ in the ever-abounding feeling of love. Love we feel for nothing without any requirements attached simply given without question or request. The love you feel as you look out over an ocean seeing the blue so deep the tears fall without pain as the love you feel peaks from the grace of Truth surrounding you and the water’s grace complete love given and received in Heaven’s Kingdom at hand. “(God) fulfills the desire of those who fear Him; He hears their cry and saves them.” Amen!
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray our praise is constant receiving and giving Your love for free. Novena day five for the Emmaus Men of St Louis.

Psalm One Hundred Forty-Six
The LORD protects the resident alien, comes to the aid of the orphan and the widow, but thwarts the way of the wicked. Psalm 146:9
Who is wise enough to understand these things? Who is intelligent enough to know them? Straight are the paths of the LORD, the just walk in them, but sinners stumble in them. Hosea 14:10
You will be hated by all because of My Name, but whoever endures to the end will be saved. Matthew 10:22
I can remember with such vivid details the stumbling I have picked myself up from just as many of you can recall the very steps taken when tripping over stupidity made you feel just as dumb. The very dumb luring you from the straight paths calling you by flashing lustful radiances of fleeting desires that drain our world of self energies. God is calling now more than ever the righteous to celebrate the Name of Redemption no matter the offer of wickedly displayed indulgence screaming hate in the midst of love.
God is asking us all to allow final judgment be His call hoping I believe each and every human will act with accord to moral dignity. It’s hard not to look and stare at the brashness of sin displayed across every public square the world over not to mention the internet that makes anyone an instant researcher of all the world represents of faith, hope and love as well as disbelief, evil and despair.
God knows you’ll be called ugly for being righteous and expressive for being promiscuous living for self or Salvation and asks us all to see the beauty of Charity as the love to live relishing Redemption over judgmental opinions living as called to exemplify Truth’s moral code of Recovery allowing harmony to exist across all planes of humanity. “Who is wise enough to understand these things?” Certainly not I am loving the joy of His Holy Name; Jesus! Protected and provided to practice, pray and proclaim. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to walk in the Name of Jesus no matter the cost. LORD, from Psalm 146:8b I chant, “The LORD raises up those who are bowed down; the LORD loves the righteous.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 146- Earth returned for all last breath
Live a life of praise

Powerless trust no prince save
Earth returned for all last breath

Faith hungry bread free prisoners felt
Wicked way thwarted by God who protects
Widow or orphan anyone who met
Down bowed raised up LORD no regrets
Hallelujah generations all forever reign love set
Day One Hundred Forty-Seven
Psalm One Hundred Forty-Seven
Hallelujah! How good to sing praise to our God; how pleasant to give fitting praise. Psalm 147:1
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? Who will go for us?” “Here I am,” I said; “send me!” Isaiah 6:8
Everyone who acknowledges Me before others I will acknowledge before My Heavenly Father. But whoever denies Me before others, I will deny before My Heavenly Father. Matthew 10:32-33
God has been communicating with His people since the beginning of life’s creation beckoning us to live according to His Commands following the rules of life’s sanctity by simply placing God First. When Isaiah heard the LORD asking, “Whom shall I send?” The Prophet eagerly replied, “Here I am, send me!” The LORD is calling each of us in different ways asking us to share His Salvation by the Truth instilled to guide us joyfully by the faith we place around our practice to read our Bible daily instilling hope by the prayer life we lead to openly proclaim His love of Charity’s Salvation.
We hear this call in so many different ways that includes seeing His mercy at work in missionary obedience or the call in helping those addicted to the mayhem we see across the internet’s waves of humanity seemingly attached to people’s arms and eyes hypnotizing the desire to praise and worship as King David had taught. You must take to heart the teaching today of hearing the call and acting never denying but proclaiming Redemption is Eternal Life of Truth. God reminds us this feeling of surrender is pleasant encouraging the everlasting call to God in thanksgiving by shouting the love of Him no matter where with whom or what living the why of “Hallelujah!” Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray we always acknowledge Your Son’s Salvation. LORD, from Psalm 147:5 I chant, “Great is our Lord, vast in Power, with wisdom beyond measure.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 147- Poor aid Power make

Psalm One Hundred Forty-Eight
Hallelujah! Praise the LORD from the heavens; praise Him in the heights. Praise Him, all you His angels; give praise, all you His hosts. Psalm 148:1-2
So shall My Word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me empty, but shall do what pleases Me, achieving the end for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:11
“Hear then the parable of the sower. The seed sown on the path is the one who hears the Word of the Kingdom without understanding it, and the evil one comes and steals away what was sown in his heart. The seed sown on rocky ground is the one who hears the Word and receives it at once with joy. But he has no root and lasts only for a time. When some tribulation or persecution comes because of the Word, he immediately falls away. The seed sown among thorns is the one who hears the Word, but then worldly anxiety and the lure of riches choke the Word and it bears no fruit. But the seed sown on rich soil is the one who hears the Word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and yields a hundred or sixty or thirtyfold.” Matthew13:18-23
David asked the world physical and spiritual to praise the LORD with every ounce of being devout to the beauty of Eternal Life offered and accepted by the righteous of heart wanting nothing more than the Truth of life to be lived and enjoyed as intended by God. Isaiah and David pour out from their hearts the message God so intended bearing witness of our Savior’s Salvation beforehand creating the Word of God to overcome any and all tribulation basking in persecution afraid not of the anxiety created in self.
Jesus brought God to the world in the most intimate way possible living firsthand the lures of all the world’s riches explaining by example how to practice God’s Truth in every corner your life has to offer living not for self but living for others to bear fruit as His Child of God. What we give away in God does return many times over in ways you’ll never truly be able to explain but live in your heart as a beacon of Truth to share what God asks us all to give in our practice, prayer and proclamation; Jesus Christ the Fruit of Salvation. Sow your seed of Christ as Charity and you too will understand. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to sow Your seeds of Salvation. LORD, from Psalm 148:5-6 I chant, “Let them all praise the LORD’s Name; for He Commanded and they were created, Assigned them their station forever, set an order that will never change.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 148- Above all order set change never grace
Praising hallelujah the LORD
David ask the Heavens to implore
Angels to sing how they adore
Heights of the sun or moons highest galore
Commanded creation’s praise
Name of Truth to be raised
Above all order set change never grace
Sea monsters place begins to change face
Commands all clouds thick lightning or hail
Cedars and fruit trees climbing the hills
Fly because of Him creepy crawlies build
Tame and wild peoples calls His Name Horn fills
Day One Hundred Forty-Nine
Psalm One Hundred Forty-Nine
To execute the judgments decreed for them—such is the glory of all God’s faithful. Hallelujah! Psalm 149:9
“Whoever loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me; and whoever does not take up his Cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. Whoever receives you receives Me, and whoever receives Me receives the One who sent Me.” Matthew 10:37-40
We all want to avoid judgments but seem to get ourselves into this or that over our lifetime suffering from this selfish act of ruin or another. We can all identify with something as God duly notes and asks us to perfect our weakness so to speak into the strength we are promised in His Salvation by and through the only Way to Heaven Jesus Christ gifting your vulnerability with the power of Truth.
We can’t run from it just as much as we can’t hide from it evidently showing through in one way or another in forms we recognize as growing old or some may say losing our touch. We have lost touch with Jesus by hiding His Cross losing what living worthy for Fidelity really means. Jesus teaches us daily to lift His Cross high above our heads where we find the life we are each meant to live for Him gaining loyalty by the glory His sake of faith, hope and love of Charity earns. Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to remain faithful to lifting Your Cross of Truth abiding in Your Salvation. LORD, from Psalm 149:4 I chant, “the LORD takes delight in His people, honors the poor with victory.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 149- Iron chained nobles shackled kings execution
Faithful assembly praise
The hallelujah they raise
Song new Maker Eternally stays
Music sounds create Godly dancing daze
Victory honored poor His delight
People He loves glory cried out a night
Two-edge sword with God’s Holy Might
Mouth foaming praise LORD provided sight
People’s punishment nation’s retribution
Iron chained nobles shackled kings execution
Hallelujah faithful God glory no tribulation
Them decreed judgment executed conclusion
Day One Hundred Fifty
Psalm One Hundred Fifty
Let everything that has breath give praise to the LORD! Hallelujah! Ps150:6
We conclude our “Walk in the Psalms” rounding off one hundred and fifty days three times over as we have gone back and forth through the Psalms to share the praise King David knew humanity could one day model allowing practice, prayer and proclamation to be everything their life has to offer. David has taught how to “walk through the valley of death” as Truth to fear “no evil” allowing “perfection” to garner the way of all mankind connecting to God in ways never thought possible.
In our fast-paced secular world, God refreshes the soul encouraging the simple to know wisdom and the pretentious to learn humility by learning and living the Word of God. Our purpose is not to become “all understanding” but to live life in faith, hope and love of Truth’s Charity in Christ finding Eternity as the reward for all who live obedient to His Will and not our own. I get up every day to practice His Word sharing in brevity what the race car world of excess litters the highways of life with calling humility stupid resting on the laurels of creativity forgoing Christ and the life of Eternal Living.
As I conclude this walk of singing and complaining accomplished by David as the thanksgiving he knew to teach the world, I reflect on how wonderful my practice has become where judging the world has been replaced with indulging the Word. David has taught me through God’s own Spirit to live thankful even when hurt and complaints come your way sharing not misery but the beauty of Salvation. We must know that God is ever constant yet His Word will be or mean something different to you every time you practice living for His Truth. Let everything give praise to the LORD! Amen.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray to always be thankful. LORD, from Psalm 150:2 I chant, “Give praise for His mighty deeds, praise Him for His Great Majesty.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Psalm 150- One hundred fifty ways of yearning
Conclude of learning thanksgiving
David who became king shared
One hundred fifty ways of yearning
Perfection humanity forever should dare
Mighty hallelujah Holy God’s Eternal Creed
Majesty Great praise His Mighty Deeds received
Breath of everything living obviously concedes
Hallelujah sounds crashing Truth believed
