                  "For A Loved One In The Hospital"  (female)
        
                Dear Lord, I have a loved one in distress:
                Her body is not working as it should,
                For it is damaged by a hostile force,
                And she is in grave danger for her life.
                I pray that You will join her at her bed,
                And send Your holy Spirit into her,
                Infusing her with healing and with light,
                Correcting all the errors that were made,
                Restoring her the way that she should be,
                In order best to serve You once again.            
                I pray for this in Jesus' holy name.

                                          Amen.
                
                                

                  "For A Loved One In The Hospital"  (male)
        
                Dear Lord, I have a loved one in distress:
                His body is not working as it should,
                For it is damaged by a hostile force,
                And he is in grave danger for his life.
                I pray that You will join him at his bed,
                And send Your holy Spirit into him,
                Infusing him with healing and with light,
                Correcting all the errors that were made,
                Restoring him the way that he should be,
                In order best to serve You once again.            
                I pray for this in Jesus' holy name.

                                          Amen.

              "For His Peace To Come Over You Today"
        
              I pray His peace comes over you today,
              And covers you in holy, sacred love,
              Then sweeps you, tumbling, rolling down the stream,
              Into His river, gentle, wide and pure.

              "So Do Not Hide Your Light Beneath A Barrel"
        
                The Lord has given many gifts to you,
                No matter what your station is in life,
                And He expects that you will use them well,
                Not only for advantage to yourself,
                But also to advance His holy work,
                So others see the good that He has done,
                And they can come to know Him as have you.
                So do not hide your light beneath a barrel!
                When you do something good, let it be seen,
                And give the Lord all credit for success,
                For by His hand all blessings are bestowed,
                To you, His trusted agent in this world.
                In Jesus' name I pray for you, Amen.

              "For Those Who Have New Life Within The Womb"

                To you who have new life within the womb:
                Congratulations on your holy gift,
                And may you soon be fruitful for the Lord,
                In motherhood, for which you were designed!
                      *             *            *
                I pray the Lord will bless you and your child, 
                And let your child be safely born when due.
                I pray He gives to you the strength you need,
                And all good health to bear and raise your child.
                I pray the child, itself, is sound and strong,
                And ready for the world when it is born.
                I pray the Lord will fill the father's heart,
                And lead him in his duty to the child.
                And if you and the father are not wed,
                I pray that you be married very soon,
                So you can give the child a lawful life,
                With two committed parents to provide. 
                I pray the Lord will find a home for you,
                With everything sufficient for your needs.
                I pray He gives you loved ones at your side,
                To help you as you guide and raise your child.
                I pray He sends the money you require,
                To pay for all the things that you will need.
                I pray He helps you learn the many things,
                That mothers need to know to raise a child.
                I pray that He will bond you and your child,
                With ties of love that evermore endure.
                And as you love and care for your new child,
                I pray He likewise loves and cares for you.
                In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.

          "For The Lord To Protect You From Satan's Little Tricks"

               The little tricks that Satan likes to play,
               Can be a great distraction in your life,
               If you are not protected from their harm.
               And so I pray the Lord will give to you,
               A golden shield with which you will deflect,
               The hurtful arrows Satan shoots at you.
               And when he sees his arrows falling down,
               I pray that Satan turns and goes away,
               And never tries to bother you again.
               In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.

            "To Thank You, Lord, For A Recent Major Gift"

                O Lord, I had a large and glaring need,
                For something I alone could not obtain.
                Although I never asked for it in prayer,
                You recognized my need, and came to help.
                I thank you for this recent major gift.
                I pray that I will put it to good use.
                In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.

        Thursday, 6-13-96 "To Work Around The Handicaps You Have"

                Unless you are a perfect work of art,
                You have some sort of handicaps in life,
                Some limitations that may hold you back,
                Unless they can be worked around, somehow.
                Some handicaps are obvious and clear,
                Like blindness, deafness, or a missing limb.
                But most are far more subtle in effect,
                Like ugliness, or grossly overweight,
                Or faulty English, or you cannot read,
                Or slowness, weakness when you walk around,
                Or memory which fails you when you call,
                Or maybe you can't do arithmetic,
                Or maybe you are fearful when you drive,
                Or something else I haven't yet described.
                     *           *           *
                Whatever they may be that hold you back,
                I pray the Lord removes them from your life.
                But if He will not make them go away,
                I pray that He will give you what you need,
                To work around the handicaps you have.
                I also pray that you will recognize,
                His help, and you will put it straight to use. 
                Do not ignore His rowboat in the flood,
                While praying that the water will go down.               
                And never should you grumble or complain,
                Lest even greater ills might come your way,
                And you would gladly trade for what you have.
                    *            *           *
                In Jesus' name I pray for you, Amen.

          Wednesday, 6-12-96 "To Help Us See Another's Point Of View"

               Sometimes we are so wrapped up in ourselves,
               So worried with our own important lives,
               That we do not take time to see the world,
               Through someone else's eyes, the way he sees.
               The Lord wants us to care for everyone,
               To love our neighbor as we love ourselves,
               But if we are to do as He commands,
               We need to see our neighbor's point of view,
               And give it the importance it deserves.
                      *           *          *
               I pray the Lord will help us take the time,
               And give to us the empathy we need,
               In order that we may begin to see,
               The world through eyes of others than ourselves.
               And once we understand his point of view,,
               I pray the Lord will help us more to love,
               Our neighbor as we surely love ourselves.
               In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.

          Monday, 6-10-96 "For Protection From Physical Harm"

                It happened twice within the last two days:
                I was exposed to danger, but not hurt,
                Although I might have very well been killed.
                And so I want to share my thoughts with you,
                About the ways He acts to keep us safe.
                     *             *            *
                The first thing I must say to you is this:
                Forget about the tragedies you hear,
                Of planes that crash and ships that break and sink,
                Of hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and fires,
                And all the people hurt or killed in these.
                The Lord will rarely stop His universe,
                From acting in its predetermined way,
                According to His laws which govern it.
                So if the wing falls off, the plane will crash.
                     *             *            *
                A second source of danger comes from man,
                From evil people, trying to do harm,
                Or careless people, acting without thought.
                To every man the Lord has given life,
                He also gives the power to do harm.
                And this is called "free agency" by us,
                And it is necessary in His plan,
                For giving us the power to do good.
                So if the robber shoots you, you might die.
                    *              *            *
                But He will act to keep you safe from harm,
                Despite the many dangers all around,
                If you will place your total trust in Him,
                And listen closely when He speaks to you,
                And follow quickly when He pulls your hand.
                For He will warn you what you must avoid,
                And He will pull you safe away from harm.
                    *              *            *
                Now here are some examples how He works:
                The plane is set to crash: you do not board;
                The car is set to wreck: you do not go;
                Tornado passes through: you are not there;
                The robber lurks nearby: you change your path;
                The roof comes crashing down: you just had left;
                The bullet whizzes by: you just had moved.
                    *              *            *
                I pray that you take heed to this advice,
                And trust unto the Lord to keep you safe,
                And follow when He leads you what to do.
                In Jesus' name I pray for you, Amen.

          Sunday, 6-9-96 "Do Not Be Distracted From His Path"

              The world can overwhelm you with its noise,
              And with its vast intrusions on your mind,
              And frequently His voice is hard to hear,
              Amid the clatter of your daily life.
              But do not be distracted from His path,
              And do not give temptation any chance.
              For even if His voice cannot be heard,
              You know the basic outline of His plan,
              As written in the Bible for us all.
              If you will follow that, you won't go wrong,
              Then maybe He will come to you again,
              And speak unto you as His very own.
              In Jesus' name I pray for you, Amen.

               O Lord, make me more useful for Your work,
               More able to perform in Your behalf,
               While acting as Your agent on this earth.
               I know You will provide the means I need,
               To carry out the jobs You give to me.
               Please help me to perform the smallest tasks,
               Like they were most important in Your eyes.
               And then, if I am faithful with the small,
               Please give me even greater work to do.               
               In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.

               And nothing makes much sense to you at all,

             "To Thank You, Lord, For Helping In My Need"

     Introduction

                The sheep upon the shepherd do depend,
                For guidance and protection in their lives.
                Without him, they would quickly be destroyed.
                (Can you imagine sheep lost in the woods,
                Alone, with bears and wolves on every side?)               
                So likewise, we who give ourselves to Christ,
                Have gained a Shepherd of the highest rank,
                To lead us as we make our way through life.
                We know His voice, distinct from all the rest,
                And when He speaks, we listen carefully,
                Then follow as He guides us where to go.

     Prayer            *            *           *

                I thank you, Lord, for helping in my need,
                For coming to my rescue when I called.
                You knew that I had gone beyond my depth,
                And I was struggling, trying not to drown.
                You told me not to worry, You were there,
                Then suddenly, You taught me how to swim!

              "To Help You Master What You Need To Know"
     
                I pray the Lord will look into your world,
                And recognize the problems that you face,
                As you conduct your life from day to day.
                (For life continues after we are saved,
                And we continue with our daily lives.)
                I pray that He will guide you as you learn,
                And help you master what you need to know,
                In order to perform the way you must.
                I pray for you in Jesus' name, Amen.

            "To Thank You, Lord, For Hearing All My Prayers"

               I thank you, Lord, for hearing all my prayers,
               For taking time to listen to my pleas,
               For taking action, when you thought it best,
               And for witholding, when the time was wrong.
               As shepherd to his sheep You are to me,
               And I am happy being in Your fold.               
               In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.

           Monday, 6-3-96 "To Neutralize An Enemy You Have"

NOTE: This prayer is for you to read, yourself.

Introduction

               Sometimes it happens, though you don't know why,
               That someone doesn't care for you at all,
               In fact, he holds you as his enemy,
               And gives you trouble everywhere he can.
               If you have such a person in your life,
               This prayer may be exactly what you need.
Prayer              *            *           *
               O Lord, I do forgive this enemy,
               This person who dislikes me through and through.
               Please show me how to help him where I can,
               And lead me to a chance to do him good.
               I pray that he may prosper in his life,
               I pray his problems quickly fade away,
               I pray that you will come into his heart,
               And neutralize the hate he feels for me.
               In Jesus' name I pray these things, Amen.

          Saturday, 6-1-96 "To Use The Power Of Your Spoken Words"

               You may not know this, but you have a power,
               A special little gift you got from God,
               To greatly make or break somebody's day,
               By what you tell them when they need to hear.
               For people are receptive to your thoughts,
               And ready to believe the things you say.
                 *             *             *
               The Lord wants you to use this power well,
               And if you do, He then will give you more,
               Because you used it as He did intend.
                 *             *             *
               So start today to use this power well,
               And once again, this rule you can apply:
               "Give unto others as you would receive."
               If they are feeling lonely, be a friend;
               If they have suffered loss, then give them gain;
               If they are in temptation, give them strength.
               Your words will cost you nothing but your time,
               Yet you are building treasure with the Lord.
               And when you need it most, He will repay.
                *              *             *
               In Jesus' name I pray these things, Amen.

             Friday, 5-31-96 "To Get A Cheerful Word Today"
     
                As you are going through your life today,
                Perhaps you will have moments that are sad,
                (Or, God forbid, your very life is sad!)
                So if that happens, this is what I pray:
                I pray you get a cheerful word today,
                A word that lifts you up from where you were,
                And lets you know the Saviour truly lives.

          Thursday, 5-30-96 "To See A Path You Never Saw Before"
     
             You know the camp is somewhere through the woods,
             But you have not yet found the path to take,
             The ones that you have tried have led nowhere,
             The sun is going down, it's getting late.
                 *             *            *
             I pray the Lord will help you in your search,
             And lead you to the path that you should take,
             And when you find it, hidden from your view,
             I pray that He will clear the way ahead.
             In Jesus name I pray for you, Amen.

          Tuesday, 5-28-96 "For Help In Making A Decision Today"
     
                 A problem has been facing you in life.
                 A possible solution was proposed.
                 You have considered all the pros and cons,
                 Today is now the day you must decide.
                   *             *            *
                 I pray that you will ask the Lord for help,
                 To make the best decision you can make.
                 I pray that He will hear you when you call,
                 I pray that He provides you what you need.
                 In Jesus name I pray for you, Amen.

      Friday, 5-24-96 "Just Tell Them That You Do Believe In Christ"
     
                  Sometimes the only thing that we can do,
                  When questioned by our non-believing friends,
                  I simply say, "I do believe in Christ,"
                  Then let them go away to ponder that.

        Thursday, 5-23-96 "So Do Not Think That You Will Be Deprived"
     
                 You think that you will sorely be deprived,
                 If you surrender everything to Christ.
                 You fear that all your worldly little thrills,
                 Will then be taken from you, to your loss.
                 You think that all excitement will be gone,
                 With nothing but dull people all around.
                 You think that He will take your sex away,
                 And give you gospel music in return.
                 You fear that you will give up half your brain,
                 And turn into a mindless little wimp.
                 You dread that all your friends will laugh at you,
                 And you will be ashamed to call Him "Lord."
                       *            *           *
                 If you believe the things above are true,
                 Then Satan has deceived you thoroughly,
                 And planted all these doubts within your mind.
                 But Satan is, himself, the enemy!
                 And he is master of a billion slaves,
                 Who all will die and owe their souls to him.
                 The only thing he offers you is thrills,
                 And even these do quickly pass away.
                 (And maybe give you AIDS while you are here.)
                      *             *           *
                 So do not think that you will be deprived,
                 If you surrender everything to Christ.
                 For if you fully give yourself to Him,
                 Then He will fully give Himself to you,
                 And bring you joy that cannot be described,
                 With happiness forever, by His side.
                     *              *           *
                 I pray that you will join me in His love.

          Wednesday, 5-22-96 "Go Ahead And Give Yourself To Christ"
           
                Perhaps you are a Christian even now,
                You go to church and try to do your best,
                You try to put His teachings in your life,
                But still you do not feel that He is yours.
                You do not feel the closeness that you crave.
                If this is you, then say this prayer with me:
                     *             *             *
                O Lord, I want you closer in my life,
                I want you more to be a part of me.
                I want the best relationship with you,
                That anyone on earth could ever have.
                I know that, "as we give, we shall receive,"
                And so I now do give myself to you,
                In full completeness, holding nothing back.
                I'm yours, so you may use me as you will,
                And take whatever things you want from me.
                And now that I did give myself to you,
                I pray that you will give yourself to me,
                As bridegroom gives himself to his new bride.
                In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.

               There is a project that you start today.
               You want for it to turn out very well.
               You prayed, and then the Lord said, "Go ahead."
               And now the time approaches to begin.
                   *            *            *
               I pray the Lord will be with you today,
               And guide you surely as your work begins.
               I pray He points the pitfalls out to you,
               And steers you safely, missing all the holes.
               I pray that any danger you might face,
               Will pass beside you, harmless as a cloud.
               I pray that in this work you do succeed,
               And do accomplish everything you seek.
               In Jesus' name I pray for you, Amen.

        Monday, 5-20-96 "The Navigation Of Migratory Birds"
           
            The atheists believe there is no God,
            And that the universe just made itself.
            They think that Evolution can explain,
            The many different life forms that we find,
            And all the wondrous things that they can do.
            But Evolution never can explain,
            The way that birds can travel through the night,
            Navigating only by the stars,
            And by a built-in compass in their heads.
            There is no way these things could have "evolved,"
            By randomly mutating different genes,
            For far too many genes would be involved,
            For it to ever happen just by chance.
                *            *            *
            So Lord, we pray that You will enter in,
            And open up their eyes to see the truth:
            That Evolution is a big mistake,
            And that You are Creator, after all.
            In Jesus' holy name we pray, Amen.

        Sunday, 5-19-96 "For Mrs. J. T. Of Texas, By Request"

She asked . . .

I ASK THAT YOU PRAY FOR ME TO GROW STRONGER IN THE LORD AND TO KEEP ALL 
HIS LAWS AND COMMANDMENTS, SO THAT I MIGHT REAP THE REWARD OF SALVATION.


She received . . .


                   For Mrs. J. T. Of Texas, By Request

           The Lord says, "if you ask, you shall receive."
           And "as you do, it shall be done to you."
           To "love the Lord thy God with all thy heart."
           And then, to "love thy neighbor as thy self."
           These are the things He wants from you and me,
           On these the law and prophets both depend.
           The scribes and pharisees observed the Law,
           But yet they did not know Him when He came.
           So Law alone is never quite enough.
           And that is why our Lord has come to us:
           To free us from dependence on the Law,
           And share with us His Spirit in our soul.
           For filled with Him, we rarely go astray;
           And if we do, He quickly doth forgive.
                 *           *           *
           And so I pray for you the things you ask:
           I pray that you grow stronger in the Lord.
           I pray that you observe His holy laws,
           And all of His commandments you do keep,
           In order that salvation comes to you.
           But more than these, and over all the rest,
           I pray His Holy Spirit fills your heart.
           In Jesus' name I pray these things for you.

Saturday, 5-18-96

NOTE: This prayer, today, is written as a collective prayer, for all of us
      to pray whenever we are moved to do so. Recently on Family Radio, 
      I heard a missionary in Peru express his belief that the Lord
      restrains Himself from acting in human affairs *unless* we pray
      for Him to act. If true, this is a stunning concept, and it would
      suggest that we should pray more actively for the Lord to intervene
      in human affairs, confident that the Holy Spirit will lead us 
      to pray in a manner consistent with His will.

              
        Saturday, 5-18-96 "A Prayer To Banish Anger From The Earth"

NOTE: The Lord did not give me a new prayer today, as he usually does.
      Maybe He wants me to run this one again, for extra emphasis.
      If you agree with this prayer, please pray it with intense
      sincerity.

                Perhaps there was a time when man did need
                A way to pump adrenalin inside,
                To get us ready fast to fight or flee,
                From animals or enemies at hand.
                And if so, maybe anger had its place.
                
                But now it seems that anger is a curse,
                Which causes far more harm than it does good.
                For rarely do we need to flee from lions,
                But often are we harmed by angry men.

                And so we pray that You will hear us now,
                And grant this new request that now we make:
                Please banish, Lord, all anger from the earth:
                Just dry it up, and make it blow away,
                And let it nevermore come back to us.
                We know that You can do this if You wish,
                And now we pray You make it come to pass.
                Forgive us if we seem to ask too much,
                But we, Your children, need this help from You.

                In Jesus' name we pray for this, Amen.

        Thursday, 5-16-96 "For The Lord To Bless The Leaders Of The World"

                Dear Lord, we pray again for your return,
                To join us, now triumphant, as our King.
                Till then, we must survive as best we can,
                And do without Your presence in the flesh.
                   *              *             *
                So Lord, until You do return again,
                We pray that You will enter in their hearts,
                And bless the many leaders of the world.
                No matter what their past degree of sin,
                We pray that You will lead them to yourself,
                And open upen up their eyes to see Your truth.
                We pray that You will share Yourself with them;
                That You impart your justice to their minds;
                That You dispense your mercy to their hearts;
                And fill them with a love for all mankind,
                So they can never bring us any harm.

                In Jesus' name we pray these things, Amen.

        Wednesday, 5-15-96 "To the Lord, For His Speedy Return"

                O Lord, we pray that you will soon return,
                To lead us in the flesh, as once before,
                But this time to be recognized as King,
                And take your rightful place above the world.

                Too long the world has stumbled through the dark,
                Controlled by those who think you don't exist,
                Or if you did, that you were just a man,
                And not our rightful king, the Son of God.

                Too long the hateful Satan has run free,
                With all his little stooges by his side,
                Corrupting everything within his path,
                And trying to destroy us with his lies.
                
                And now the year two thousand does approach,
                Your Gospel has been preached throughout the world,
                And those who need to hear have had their chance.
                The time for your return is now arrived!

                Please hear us as we pray for your return;
                Prepare us to receive you in the flesh.
                Please set a cross, emblazoned in the sky,
                So all will recognize that it is you.
                Then enter, now triumphant, as our King!
                
                In Jesus' holy name we pray, Amen.

               Benediction For High School Graduation 


            So now we leave to go our separate ways.
            We cherish all the things that we have learned;
            We treasure all the friends that we have made;
            We thank our teachers, and we thank the staff.
            We pray that God will take us in His hand,
            And hold us tightly in the years ahead.
            And as we seek to find our fondest dreams,
            We pray that He will guide us all the way.
            In Jesus' holy name we pray, Amen.

                 For A Successful International Trip By Air

               Your plans have all been made, you leave today;
               Your visa was approved, so you can go;
               Your passport is in order, in your hand;
               You fly to visit loved ones, far away.
                   *            *           *
               I pray the Lord that He will be with you,
               I pray He takes you safely by the hand,
               And stays beside you all throughout the trip.
               I pray the pilots safely fly the plane,
               I pray the airline staff will do its job.
               I pray your flights are smooth and safe and sure.
               And as you visit loved ones in their homes,
               I pray the Lord will bring His holy joy.
               In Jesus' name I pray for you, Amen.

    Sunday, 5-12-96 "To Those Who Think That They Have Sold Their Soul"



               To those who think that they have sold their soul,
               To Satan, for a price they cannot pay,
               I have some news that you might want to hear:
                     *              *               *
               Your "owner" has deceived you once again:
               You have no contract that you must fulfill.
               The Lord has paid the total price for you,
               By dying, with his hands nailed to a board,
               And so He showed His faithful love for you.
               Your "owner" doesn't care for you at all,
               He gets his jollies leading you to hell.
               He wants to see you writhe and scream in pain.
               He hates all humans more than you can know.
                     *              *               *         
               So if you sold your soul, then follow this:
               Divest yourself of what you did receive,
               Just give it back, or throw it all away,
               And don't look back to see where it did go.
               Then turn your face to Jesus, and repent.
               Accept Him as your Lord, and follow Him.
               He will forgive you of your many sins,
               And He will give you life to start anew.
                     *              *               *
               Then Satan will be seen for what he is:
               A snarling dog, confined behind a fence;
               He barks and barks, but no one even cares.
               In Jesus' holy name, I pray for you.

      Saturday, 5-11-96 "For You To Render Help When Called Upon"

            The Lord has told us, "Ask. You will receive."
            And He wants us to do the same as He:
            If someone asks us, we should try to help.

            So let His good example be your guide,
            And render help when you are called upon.
            And sometimes you will clearly have a case,
            Where you are being called, but not in words,
            But by the situation, close at hand.
            In such a case, you know what you should do:
            "Give unto others as you would receive."
            In Jesus' name I pray for you, Amen.

              On dreary days, when clouds block out the sun,
              And all the world looks gloomy and forlorn,
              I pray the Lord will brighten up your heart,
              And give you something wonderful to do.
              In Jesus' name I pray for you, Amen.

        Thursday, 5-9-96 "To Let The Lord Be Lord, And You Be You"

               You are not God, so do not overstep;
               And do not criticise the things He does.
               He has His reasons, you may rest assured.
               So keep your small opinions to yourself.
               You would not like it very much at all,
               If toddling children, barely two years old,
               Presumed to tell you how to do your job.
               And likewise so it also is with Him:
               He does not like it when you push yourself,
               And try to second-guess the things He does,
               And think of all the changes you would make,
               If only you were God and He were gone.
                    *            *            *
               So let the Lord be Lord, and you be you.
               He wants for you to trust, and then obey,
               And do as He instructed you to do.
               Then later, when you stand before the throne,
               The veil will be removed and you will see.
               And everything will then make perfect sense.

               In Jesus' name I pray you will obey.

               I pray that you will turn the other cheek,
               Whenever someone slaps you in the face,
               Instead of punching them right in the nose.
               One person cannot fight himself alone.

                O Lord, I now feel anger in my heart,
                But anger has no place within my life.
                And so I pray that You will raise Your hand,
                And cast this burst of anger from my heart.
                I pray You cast it far away from me.
                I hereby do forgive the one at fault,
                And pray that likewise You forgive me, too.
                In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.

                 For He has promised joy beyond compare,
                 To those who trust in Him and share His love.
                 His yoke is easy, and His burden light. 
                 He fills my soul with sound of angel song,
                 And visions of a wondrous golden land.
                 Jerusalem is really very near;
                 In full contentment there I dwell with Him.
                 You do not need to wait until you die.
                 I pray that you will join us in our love.

              Sunday, 4-5-96 "To Cast Out Demon Alcohol"

NOTE: Demon Alcohol rarely lives alone. He usually keeps various of
his demon friends with him, such as Drugs, Tobac (tobacco), Sexual 
Promiscuity, Masturbation.  He also frequently attracts and lives with 
other harmful spirits (not exactly demons, but harmful nevertheless)
such as Chronic Failure, Confusion, Deception, Unreliability, Low 
Self-Esteem.

    The disease called "alcoholism" is very difficult to treat 
successfully, because Demon Alcohol is always ready to jump back in after 
he has somehow been kicked out.  His friends are waiting for him, and 
they keep drawing him back in.  Therefore, when we cast out Demon 
Alcohol, we must also cast out all his friends, and this is a very big
job.  

    Frequently the person has come to think of himself as an "alcoholic," 
someone with an incurable disease worthy of sympathy. His friends
are mostly fellow alcoholics, and he spends much of his life participating
in activities designed especially for alcoholics. Once this happens, it
is almost impossible to cure, because the person doesn't want to be cured.
If he weren't an alcoholic, he fears he would be a mere "nobody." So if
Demon Alcohol is somehow kicked out, the person slyly keeps inviting him
back in!

   Sometimes, however, persons with Demon Alcohol deny that there is
really any problem.  They think of themselves not as alcoholics, but 
merely as people who like to drink a lot. These cases are far easier
to treat because when you cast out Demon Alcohol you have gotten rid of
most of the problem.  The person himself is not nearly so crippled as 
those who define themselves as alcoholics. Demon Alcohol is less likely
to return.



NOTE: For this to work, you must first be a Christian, that is, you must
first have invited Christ to enter your life and be your Lord. If you

                    "To Cast Out Demon Alcohol"


              Attention evil spirits dwelling here:
              Know ye that I am working for the Lord!
              His power and His glory fill my heart;
              His love directs me here to you today.
              
              I know that all of you will want to leave,
              As day-by-day the Lord more fully grows,
              And daily you are more-and-more distressed.

              But now I speak to Demon Alcohol,
              (And all his evil friends may listen in.)
              
              O Demon Alcohol, now hear my voice!
              In Jesus' holy name, I cast you out!
              No longer may you stay within this place,
              No longer may you tamper with this life!
              The Lord is dwelling here, you must be gone!
              And in His holy name, I cast you out!
              I plead the blood of Jesus, you must go!
              The holy blood of Jesus, you must go!
              So go, and take your evil friends with you!
              And nevermore return unto this place.

                     *            *            *

              O Lord, I pray that you will grow in strength
              Within this heart where you are dwelling now.
              And as you gain in power day-by-day,              
              I pray the evil spirits all will leave.
              In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.

                       Saturday, May 4, 1996

            CASTING OUT DEMON TOBAC, TO STOP TOBACCO USE


NOTE: As you read these words, try to imagine hearing my voice as I speak 
      them to you.  In this way, the words are reactivated, and it is the 
      same as if I were actually speaking to you at this moment.


NOTE: Tobacco is the substance associated with Demon Tobac.
Tobac (pronounced TOE-back) is his true spirit name, and he will be upset
when he sees his true name is being used. Demon Tobac manifests himself 
in a person by tobacco smoking (usually cigarettes), tobacco chewing, or 
using snuff.  Demon Tobac arises in a person when that person starts using
tobacco, and the demon grows in strength as tobacco usage continues. The 
tobacco, itself, causes certain changes in the body, so  after the demon
is cast out, I then need to pray for healing of the body from the 
effects of tobacco. The desire to smoke should be mostly gone as soon
as the demon is cast out, and totally gone within a week. If you break
down and start using tobacco again at all, the demon takes this as an 
invitation to return, and all our previous efforts are cancelled. So once
the demon is cast out, you must totally refrain from tobacco use.  If you
continue to feel the urge, you may repeat the casting out until it works.


NOTE: For most demons, I do not want to cast them out unless the person 
has become a Christian.  The reason for this is that if demons are cast out
and the Lord is not in the person, then the demons usually come back worse
than before.  But I will make an exception in the case of Demon Tobac,
because he tends to reach his favorite level of intensity in a person, then
remain there at that level. So if he is cast out, then returns (in a 
non-Christian), he tends to come back the same strength that he was 
originally, not worse.  So no harm is done. Even so, it is, of course far 
better that you become a Christian than not.  Also, there is some chance that  
Tobac will return worse than before, to punish you for trying to have him 
cast out. I will let you make that choice: if you are non-Christian and 
willing to take the chance, then go ahead.

    
NOTE: Regarding my authority to cast out demons: I cast out demons by the 
authority of Jesus Christ, according to the Bible, Mark 16:17.  Any Christian
has this authority, but few know how to use it. The demons all know how
this works, but they may be stunned to find it actually in use, 
particularly in a long-distance way such as this, where you are merely 
reading my words. The casting out is a command, not a prayer.  It will be
followed by a prayer, for healing of the body from the physical effects 
of tobacco.


                    "To Cast Out Demon Tobac"


       The "Opening Announcement" to the demons:
       For Christians as well as non-Christians.

              Attention evil spirits dwelling here:
              Know ye that I am working for the Lord!
              His power and His glory fill my heart;
              His love directs me here to you today.
              Lord Jesus Christ has power over you,
              And I get my authority from Him.


       The "Christian Follow-Up Announcement" to the demons:
       For use by Christians only.
 
              I know that all of you will want to leave,
              As day-by-day the Lord more fully grows,
              And daily you are more-and-more distressed.
              I know His presence grates upon your nerves,
              I know you want to flee when He is near.


       The "Casting Out Of Demon Tobac:"
       For Christians and non-Christians.

              O Demon Tobac! Now I speak to you:
              Remember me from 1982,
              When Ernest Angely cast you out of me,
              With power given him by Jesus Christ!
              I now return with power of my own,
              From this same Lord who cast you out before!
              And now you will be cast out once again.              

              O evil Demon Tobac, you must go!
              In Jesus' holy name, I cast you out!
              No longer may you stay within this place,
              No longer may you tamper with this life!
              The power of the Lord is now returned,
              And in His holy name, I cast you out!
              I plead the blood of Jesus, you must go!
              The holy blood of Jesus, you must go!
              So leave this place and nevermore return.

        
       The "Prayer For Healing:"
       For Christians and non-Christians.
              
              O Lord, I pray that you will lift your hand,
              And wipe away the damage that was caused,
              By use of vile tobacco in this place.
              I pray that you restore to glowing health,
              The tissues that were damaged in the past.
              In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.


       The "Prayer For The Lord To Grow In Strength:"
       For use by Christians only.

              O Lord, I pray that you will grow in strength
              Within this heart where you are dwelling now.
              And as you gain in power day-by-day,              
              I pray the evil spirits all will leave.
              In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.

         Friday, 5-3-96 "For Parents Contemplating A Divorce"

            You think your spouse has changed, has gotten worse;
            You think that, sadly, you have grown apart;
            You think that you deserve another chance,
            For happiness, because we live just once.
            You think the children soon will be okay,
            "There's child support, and they still have a home.
            And they can visit Daddy every week."
                  *              *              *
            Dream on, and keep on thinking of yourself,
            And wake up years from now with sore regret.
            Your new love was no better than the first!
            Your judgment was no better than before!
            Your grown-up children are in therapy,
            And blaming you for messing up their lives.
            (I speak from pure experience with this.)
                  *              *              *
            And so I pray that you will think again,
            But better yet: stop thinking, start to pray,
            And ask the Lord to lead you in this thing.
            And be prepared to follow what He says.
            But listen to His voice, and not your own,
            And not the voice of Satan, whispering.
            I pray the Lord will give you what you need.
            I pray He leads you down the proper path.
            I pray the Lord will act upon your spouse,
            And lead your spouse to where he needs to go.
            If lust for someone else is at the root,
            I pray that He throws water on the fire.
            Remember, "As you give you shall receive."
            Your children: if you turn your back on them,
            The Lord will surely turn His back on you.
            In Jesus' name I pray for you, Amen.

              Wednesday, 5-1-96 "Prayer Of Salvation"

NOTE: This prayer is for you to pray, yourself, when you are ready to let
Jesus Christ come into your life as your personal Lord and Saviour.


              O Lord, I know that You are waiting here,
              For me to let You come into my life.
              I know that You are knocking on the door,
              And now I pray that You will enter in. 
              
              I pray that You will come into my life,
              As Lord and Saviour, ruling over me.
              I know that You are truly Son of God,
              I know that You have risen from the dead,
              I know that only You can save my soul.
              I seek your guidance, and I seek your love;
              I want to follow everywhere You lead.
              I truly do repent of all my sins;
              I feel remorse for evil I have done;
              I turn my back on sin and look to You.
              I have forgiven all who did me harm,
              I pray that You will likewise now forgive.     
              And now as I commit myself to You,
              I pray that You commit yourself to me.
              In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.

                    "To Cast Out Demon Drugs"


              Attention evil spirits dwelling here:
              Know ye that I am working for the Lord!
              His power and His glory fill my heart;
              His love directs me here to you today.
              
              I know that all of you will shortly leave,
              As day-by-day the Lord more fully grows,
              And daily you are more-and-more distressed.

              But now I speak to Demon Drugs alone:
              
              O evil Demon Drugs, now hear my voice!
              In Jesus' holy name, I cast you out!
              No longer may you stay within this place,

              The Lord is dwelling here, you must be gone!
              And in His holy name, I cast you out!
              So go, and take your evil friends with you!
              And nevermore return unto this place.

                     *            *            *

              O Lord, I pray that you will grow in strength
              Within this heart where you are dwelling now.
              And as you gain in power day-by-day,              
              I pray the evil spirits all will leave.
              In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.

              Monday, 4-29-96 "For Help In Finding Things"
 
               The Master says to "Seek and ye shall find,"
               And that refers to seeking of the truth.
               But sometimes you are seeking lesser things:
               Like keys that you misplaced somewhere today;
               Or answers to a problem that you have;
               Or someone's house that you must try to find.
               The Lord can help you find these things as well.
                  *              *              *
               And so I pray this blessing onto you:
               I pray that He will help you in your search
               For whatsoever thing you need to find.
               I pray He helps you open up your mind
               And focus clearly on the thing you seek.
               I pray that He will take you by the hand
               And lead you to the place you need to go.
               In Jesus' name I pray for you, Amen.

            Sunday, 4-28-96 "Happy Birthday To You!"

NOTE: You may save this prayer until your birthday, then use it.

             Another year of life upon this earth:
             I hope that you have used it full and well.
             And yet another starting now, today:
             Perhaps you should rededicate your life,
]            And give it to the Lord, who gave you yours.
             For all that went before has passed behind;
             Your future lies before you like a road.
                   *            *            *
             And so I pray the Lord will be with you,
             And dwell with you, and keep you as His own,
             And walk with you, beside you, down the road.
             And now I pray that He will make today                
             The finest birthday that you ever had.

            Saturday, 4-27-96 "To Start A Special Project"

               Perhaps there is some thing you want to do,
               Some special project that you have in mind.
               If so, then maybe it is time to start;
               No more procrastination is allowed!
               And so I pray that you will clear your mind,
               And focus now upon your newest task.
               I pray the Lord will help you get your start,
               And help you all the way till it is done.
               (I pray your task is worthy of His help.)         
               And when your special project is complete,
               I pray you and the Lord are satisfied.
               In Jesus' name I pray for you, Amen.

      Friday, 4-26-96 "To Reunite With Those Who Are Estranged"

              It seems to happen more and more these days
              That loved ones choose to go their separate ways;
              That married partners break themselves apart,
              That children and their parents are estranged.
              So if you count yourself as one of those
              Who finds himself estranged from those he loves,
              I pray the Lord will help you in your need:
                    
              I pray that He will open up the hearts
              Of those with whom you wish to reunite.
              I pray that He will fill them with His love
              So they can grant forgiveness now to you
              For whatsoever things they hold a grudge.
              I also pray the Lord will come to you
              So you can grant forgiveness now to them.
              And then I pray that you will reunite.
              In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.

        Thursday, 4-25-96 "For You To Get Some Extra Love Today"

              "Some days are better than some other days."
              As humans, we all know that this is true.
              And one thing that will brighten up a day
              Is lots of love from people all around.
              And so I pray that you today receive
              Some extra love from those for whom you care:
              An extra kiss from someone's smiling face;
              An extra smile from someone whom you love.
              And as the day progresses to its close,
              I pray the Savior brings you something nice.
              In Jesus' name I pray for you, Amen.

        Wednesday, 4-24-96 "That Today You Might Get Closer To The Lord"

                 No matter who you are or how you live,
                 You always can get closer to the Lord.
                 His Spirit can be stronger in your heart,
                 You may become more greatly filled with Him.
                       *          *          *
                 And so I pray that you today will try
                 To act and speak and think in such a way
                 That He will want to love you even more,
                 And share His presence even more with you.
                 And as you try, I pray He will respond
                 By growing even stronger in your heart.
                 In Jesus'name I pray for you, Amen.

                 He has some special gifts prepared for you,
                 But you can't get them if you do not come.

              "Deliverance From Demons First-Aid Kit"

                   For _____ _______

    I have copied, borrowed and edited freely from material made available
on the world wide web at http://www.demonbuster.com.
I give thanks to the Lord for making this material available to me and now
to you.  I also thank the Lord for providing new material to go into this
"Deliverance From Demons First-Aid Kit."


STEP ONE:  Read this immediately, and as you read, imagine my voice
speaking to you.  When you do this, my commands and prayers
are re-activated, and it is the same as if I were there in person with you,
speaking out loud.  (This is the way prayers on television work: even
though most of the time the TV prayers are on videotape and are not 
actually being prayed at the time you hear them, they work anyway!)

   
   "In the Name of Jesus I cover you with the Blood of Jesus, and I bind
   all your demons, in Jesus' Name."

   
    (This will slow them down quite a bit until we can take further action.
By "binding" them, this is like tying them up in ropes so they
can't move very well.)


STEP TWO:  Recognize that as a Christian, I have authority to cast out 
demons, according to Mark 16:17: " . . . in My name they will drive
out demons . . . " Any Christian can have this authority, if he chooses 
to use it.

    Demons are anything that controls, harasses, torments, or drives you
to do things you ought not to do or wish you didn't do.
Temper, depression, fear, sickness, to mention a few, are demons.
When I "cast out" demons, I am removing them from you, and making them
go away.  


STEP THREE: If you are not a Christian, you need to become one right
now!  It does no good for me to cast out a demon if you are not filled
with the Holy Spirit, because the demons would soon return, with their
friends, and you would be worse off than before!
   
    To become a Christian you must believe Jesus is the Son of God, that
He died for your sins, that He rose from the dead, and that you are
sorry for your sins. Then you must specifically invite Him to come into
your heart and rule your life as your personal Lord and Saviour.

    Even if you already are a Christian, it is a good idea to do this . . .
   
   Say this prayer, and be sincere - "Dear Lord, in Jesus' name I ask you 
to forgive me of all my sins. Come into my life as my personal Lord and 
Saviour, and fill me with your Holy Spirit. In Jesus' name, Amen."
   
 
STEP FOUR: You must forgive.

   Before being able to get help, you must forgive EVERYONE who has ever
hurt you in any way. Say, "Dear Lord, in Jesus' name I forgive my father,
mother, brothers, sisters, relatives, (name anyone else now), and
anyone else who has ever hurt me or aroused anger in me." 


STEP FIVE: Break the curses.


   In the name of Jesus, I cover myself and the one reading this with the
   Blood of Jesus. I ask for giant warrior angels to protect us. As your
   war club and weapons of war I break down, undamn, and blow up all
   walls of protection around all witches, warlocks, wizards, satanists,
   and the like, and I break the power of all curses, hexes, vexes,
   spells, charms, fetishes, physic prayers, physic thought, all
   witchcraft, sorcery, magic, voodoo, all mind control, jinxes, potions,
   bewitchments, death, destruction, sickness, pain, torment, physic
   power, physic warfare, prayer chains, and everything else being sent
   our way, and I return them, and the demons, back to Hell, where they 
   belong. In Jesus' Name.
   


STEP SIX: Necessary, not optional!  Read this command, and imagine my 
voice speaking to the demons inside you. This is the command that
actually casts them out.

               O foul and evil spirits, hear my voice!
               Know ye that I am working for the Lord.
               You may no longer dwell within this house.
               The Lord is entered here, you cannot stay.
               His holy brightness blinds you with its light.
               His gentle voice offends your evil ears.
               His mighty presence drives you far away.
               So now be gone, and nevermore return!
               I plead the blood of Jesus: now be gone!
               The mighty blood of Jesus: now be gone!   
   

STEP SEVEN: A prayer for the Lord to grow in strength within you.
You pray this one, yourself, in your own voice.

                O Lord, I'm glad that you are in my life.
                I pray that you will greatly grow in strength.
                I pray that you will lead me how to live
                In such a way that you are pleased with me
                And you will never want to leave this house.
                I pray that any demons who remain
                Will change their minds and quickly choose to leave.
                In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.


Congratulations.  May God bless you now and till the end of 
time.                

   Yours in Christ,

                      "To Cast Out Demon Envy"

               We are taught to love the Lord, our God,
               And then, to love our neighbor as ourself.
               And if we love our neighbor as ourself,
               Then we will glad rejoice when he succeeds,
               And we will wish him all good things in life,
               The same as we desire them for ourself.

               There is no place for envy in your life.
               So if you have it, now I cast it out.             

                   *            *            *

              Attention evil spirits dwelling here:
              Know ye that I am working for the Lord!
              His power and His glory fill my heart;
              His love directs me here to you today.
              
              I know that all of you will shortly leave,
              As more each day the Lord is grown in strength,
              And daily you are more-and-more distressed.
              But now, today, I cast out only one:
              O Demon Envy: Listen to my voice!
              You are the one I speak to here today!
              In Jesus' holy name, I cast you out!
              No longer may you stay within this place,
              No longer may you tamper with this life!
              The Lord is dwelling here, you must be gone!
              And in His holy name, I cast you out!
              So go, and take your evil friends with you!
              And nevermore return unto this place.
                            
                   *             *             *

              O Lord, I pray that you will grow in strength
              Within this heart where you are dwelling now.
              And as you gain in power day-by-day,              
              I pray the evil spirits all will leave.
              In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.

           Saturday, 4-20-96 "To Cast Out Demon Gluttony"

NOTE: For this to work, you must first be a Christian, that is, you must
first have invited Christ to enter your life and be your Lord. If you
want to do that now, please go to "Gateway To Jesus" at . . .
   http://www.loveallpeople.org/gateway.html

Also, you must first have granted your forgiveness to all who have
ever hurt you or aroused feelings of anger in you. If you want to
do that now, you can use my prayer, "To Grant Your Forgiveness," at . . .
   http://www.loveallpeople.org/prayer4you59.html

If you do not have access to the WWW, please write me or e-mail me and
I will send you what you need.

                  "To Cast Out Demon Gluttony"

              There is a demon many people have,
              But they don't even know that it exists.
              It gives them grief in many subtle ways,
              Controls their life in ways they cannot see:
              It makes them want to eat when they are full;
              It keeps them fat and gross, against their will;
              It works against their health in many ways.
              So now I cast out Demon Gluttony.
                   *            *            *
              Attention evil spirits dwelling here:
              Know ye that I am working for the Lord!
              His power and His glory fill my heart;
              His love directs me here to you today.
              
              I know that all of you will shortly leave,
              As day-by-day the Lord more fully grows,
              And daily you are more-and-more distressed.
              But now, today, I cast out only one:
              O Demon Gluttony, I speak to you!
              In Jesus' holy name, I cast you out!
              No longer may you stay within this place,
              No longer may you tamper with this life!
              The Lord is dwelling here, you must be gone!
              And in His holy name, I cast you out!
              So go, and take your evil friends with you!
              And nevermore return unto this place.
                            
                   *             *             *

              O Lord, I pray that you will grow in strength
              Within this heart where you are dwelling now.
              And as you gain in power day-by-day,              
              I pray the evil spirits all will leave.
              In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.

           "To Cast Out Demon Drugs From A New Christian"

              O Evil Spirits, all who dwell within
              The reader of this prayer, I speak to you!
              Know ye that I am working for the Lord!
              You all must shortly move out from this place,
              Because the Lord has entered in this heart,
              And you cannot withstand His mighty love.
              
              But now I speak to Demon Drugs alone.
              
              O evil Demon Drugs, now hear my voice!
              In Jesus' holy name, I cast you out!
              No longer may you stay within this place,
              No longer may you tamper with this life!
              The Lord has entered here, you must be gone!
              And in His holy name, I cast you out!
              So go, and take your evil friends with you!
              And nevermore return unto this place.
                            
                   *             *             *

              O Lord, I pray that you will grow in strength
              Within this heart where you have just moved in.
              And as you gain in power day-by-day,              
              I pray the evil spirits all move out.
              In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.

                "For The Lord To Grow In Strength"

                        Thursday, 4-18-96 
              
NOTE: This prayer is mainly for new Christians who had demons in them
when they invited the Lord to come into their heart. In many cases, the 
Lord is there, but so are the demons. The Lord, in many cases, is not
yet very strong within them, and the demons have not yet left. Demon
Drugs is a particular problem for many young adults.


            "I Pray The Lord Will Greatly Grow In Strength"

               The Lord was waiting patiently outside,
               And then you opened up your heart to Him,
               So now He has become a part of you.

               But also, there are demons in your life,
               Some evil forces trying to do harm,
               To lead you down some paths you should not take,
               To make you do some things you should not do,
               To injure you and drag you down with them.

               The Lord and demons cannot get along;
               They are like water when it's mixed with oil.
               The demons cannot stand to be with Him,
               Because He makes them crazy with His love,
               When all they want to do is cause you grief.
               And so they try to make Him want to leave,
               By making you offensive in His sight.
               
               Some other things that demons do not like:
               They cannot stand to hear you read His word;
               It makes them want to scream and hold their ears.
               So get your Bible, read it every day.
               They really do not like it when you pray,
               So let your prayers be ever on your lips.
               They also hate to hear religious songs;
               So learn some hymns, and sing them frequently.
  
               The more you love the Lord, the more He grows.
               So when you sing His praise, He gains in strength;
               And when you seek His warmth, he grows in size;
               And when you do His will, His power builds.
               And if the Lord is strong enough in you,
               The demons all will leave, and not come back!

               I pray the Lord will greatly grow in strength;
               I pray that you will help Him as He grows;
               I pray that all your demons then will leave;
               I pray that they will nevermore return.

               In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.

            Wednesday, 4-17-96 "To Avoid Carelessness"
              
               Sometimes when you are busy with your life,
               And jumping frantically from place to place
               It's easy to forget about details,
               Like where you put your keys or left your coat,
               Or if your back-up copy has been made.
               And so I pray the Lord will stay with you
               And warn you when you walk in carelessness.
               I pray that He protects you from the harm
               That careless actions easily produce.
               In Jesus' name I pray for you, Amen.

            Tuesday, 4-16-96 "To Grant Your Forgiveness"

   NOTE:  This is a prayer for you to grant your forgiveness
   to everyone who has hurt you or has aroused the emotion of 
   anger in you.  You need to make a list of these people,
   complete to the best of your ability.  If you don't know a 
   particular name, you may merely describe the situation, like
   "The man who ran my car off the road last year, then drove 
   away."  As you are praying, you refer to this "forgiveness
   list."  You may repeat this prayer whenever you need to.
   As a Christian, you never want to hold a grudge against
   anyone very long.

              *               *              *

             O Lord, I raise my humble prayer to you,
             That you might soothe my soul and grant me peace,
             For I have burned in anger, raged in wrath.
             I have a list where I have written down
             The names of those I want now to forgive.
             So Lord, I now declare that I forgive
             The people who are listed here today.
             For every wrong that they have done to me,
             I do forgive and blot out of my heart.
             For any anger they aroused in me,
             I do forgive them, each and every one.
             In Jesus' name I promise this to you.
             And as I now forgive those listed here,
             I pray that you will likewise grant to me,
             Complete forgiveness for my many sins.
             In Jesus' name I raise this prayer, Amen.

      Monday, 4-15-96 "Prepare to Be Delivered From Demons"

NOTE: This prayer is the first in a series of prayers which the Lord is
giving me to deliver you from the various demons that plague your life. As I
write these very words, He has not yet given me even the first word of the
first prayer, but I am certain that He will.

        The Father wants His children to be free
        From everything that harms them in their lives.
        He wants them to be free to worship Him,
        And serve Him in the fullness of their strength,
        Unfettered by the demons that they have.
        And so the Lord has made a plan for you,
        To free you from all demons in your life.
        I pray that you prepare to be set free,
        And that you do accept His plan for you.
        Your demons all will shortly be cast out
        If you believe and want it to be done.
        But first you must forgive with all your heart
        All persons who have ever done you harm.
        So meditate on all these things today;
        Prepare yourself for miracles to come.
        In Jesus' name I pray for you, Amen.

      Sunday, 4-14-96 "As You Forgive, So Shall You Be Forgiven"

        Luke 6:37  "Do not judge, and you will not be judged;
        Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned; Forgive,
        and you will be forgiven."         

            I pray that you will learn this teaching well,
            I pray that you engrave it on your heart.
            The Lord has spoken clearly as can be:
            "As you forgive, so shall you be forgiven."
                  *             *            *     
            So if someone has done you wrong, forgive!
            And if somebody steals from you, forgive!
            And if they lie and laugh at you, forgive!
            And if they beat you half to death, forgive!
                  *             *            *
            So when the day of judgment comes for you,
            And He reviews the life that you have led,
            I pray the record shows that you forgave,
            So He can say, "I likewise do forgive."
                       *                *
            In Jesus' name I pray for you, Amen.
                 
                      by Rev. Bill McGinnis - Public Domain

Suggestion:  Go to the on-line Bible at http://www.gospelcom.net and search
for the word, "forgive." To me, there are no other teachings of Jesus that
are clearer than His teachings on forgiveness.



      Saturday, 4-13-96 "To Help Someone Learn Something That You Know" 

                 If you are old enough to read this prayer,
                 Then you have learned a lot of things in life,
                 And you know something others need to know.
                 And somewhere there is someone you can teach
                 Who needs to learn this thing from you today.
                 And so I pray that you will open up
                 And teach the one who needs to learn from you.
                 Do not withold the knowledge that you have,
                 But rather share it with the one who needs.
                 Remember that the Lord has said to you
                 That as you give, you surely shall receive.
                 So share with happy heart the things you know
                 And when you need, someone will share with you.
                 In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.

                Friday, 4-12-96 "For A Friend To Talk To"

               You have some problems brewing in your life,               
               And you have asked the Lord to give you help.
               You know that He is with you, and you trust Him,
               But now you feel you also need a friend:
               A human friend to come and be beside you,
               To talk with you and share your company.
               For sometimes you are lonely in the twilight,
               You sometimes feel nobody really cares.
                 *               *              *
               I pray the Lord will always dwell within you;
               That He will always listen to your cries.
               I pray His faithful love will always warm you;
               That you can always trust Him for your needs.
               But also now I pray that He will bring you
               A special friend to spend some time with you,
               A friend to listen as you tell your problems,
               A friend to give you comfort and advice.
               And when your friend arrives, and you are talking,
               I pray you find the Lord is in her heart.
               In Jesus' name I pray for you, Amen.

               Thursday, 4-11-96 "To Cast Out Demon Porno"

              If Demon Porno has you in his grasp,
              This prayer should help release you from his hold.
              Or maybe you know someone else, instead,
              Who suffers from this demon in his life.
              If so, I pray you give this prayer to him,
              And let me also pray for his release.
                 *              *              *
              It started almost as a little joke,
              A small adventure you thought you would try.
              A burst of new excitement filled your mind,
              As naked people frolicked on the screen.
              But gradually you started to get snared:
              A new addiction entered in your life,
              And you required a stronger fix each day.
              So pretty soon, the normal was too tame,
              As you became accustomed to extremes.
              And finally, your partner in real life
              No longer raised your interest as before,
              And you prefered to spend your time alone.
                *               *              *
              O evil Demon Porno, hear my voice!
              I now command, in Jesus' holy name
              That you come out and leave this man alone!
              No longer may you dwell within his house,
              No longer may you tamper with his life.
              In Jesus' holy name I cast you out!
                *               *              *
              O Lord I pray that you will fill the void
              That was created when the demon left.
              I pray that you will enter in this man,
              And grow and prosper well within his heart.
              I pray that you return his appetite
              For normal, lawful sex, as God provides,
              A comfort to his wife and to himself.
              I pray that in the normal, lawful way,
              He now can fill his needs and live in peace.
              In Jesus' name I pray for him, Amen.

                Wednesday, 4-10-96 "The Isolated Christian"

                The isolated Christian is at risk,
                For Satan preys on Christians all alone.
                He tracks them down and fills their minds with lies;
                He shakes their faith with his deceitful tricks.
                The Lord is in their hearts, but very faint.
                They need to help Him shine with greater strength.
                And this is why they need to go to church!
                The fellowship of other Christian souls
                Imparts a strength to their enfeebled faith.
                It keeps them on the straight and narrow path;
                And helps the Lord within them to prevail.
                   *               *              *
                And so I pray that you will find a church,
                And that you will attend it without fail.
                I pray the Lord will give you what you need:
                Good fellowship with other Christian souls,
                A minister to lead you faithfully.
                In Jesus' name I pray for you, Amen.

                 Tuesday, 4-9-96 "For The Person New In Christ"

                 The Lord was waiting patiently outside,
                 And then you made the choice to let Him in.
                 And now the Holy Spirit dwells in you,
                 And you have been reborn to life in Christ.
                    *                *                *
                 Congratulations on your brand-new life!
                 I pray the Lord will bless you wondrously.
                    *                *                *
                 The Lord has entered full into your life;
                    I pray that you are grateful He is here.
                 Your sins are now forgiven from your past;
                    I pray you turn away and don't look back.
                 The Lord has granted you eternal life;
                    I pray you share it joyfully with Him.
                 You have become a blessed child of God;
                    I pray you strive to do your Father's will.
                 A great adventure lies ahead for you;
                    I pray that you will triumph in His love.
                    *                *                *
                 And when the Great Deceiver tries to tempt,
                 I pray that you resist his every move.
                 In Jesus' name I pray for you, Amen.

          Monday, 4-8-96 "Your Intellect Alone Is Not Enough"

          Proverbs 3:5  "Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
                        and lean not on your own understanding."

                 Your intellect alone is not enough
                 To guide you through this life you have on earth;
                 For many of the world's most brilliant people
                 Are lost, like drunkards stumbling through the night.
                 But once the Holy Spirit dwells within you,
                 It lights your path, illuminates the dark.
                 It gives you answers to your deepest quests,
                 Where intellect alone would surely fail.
                 And so I pray the Lord will dwell within you,
                 And let His holy presence guide your life.
                 Then if you ask your mind to render judgment,
                 Your mind will cheerfully affirm His truths.

               For Easter Sunday, 4-7-96 "The Empty Tomb"

               The morning light had only just begun
               As they were walking slowly to the tomb;
               Three women, bringing spices to anoint.
               But then when they arrived, they were surprised:
               The stone was rolled away, and He was gone!
               And in the tomb, an angel of the Lord
               Declared that He had risen from the dead,
               And that He could be seen in Galilee.
                    *           *           *
               I pray that you imagine you were there,
               To view the angel and the empty tomb.
               Imagine what was going through your mind
               When first you understood what had occured,
               And first you dared to think this might be God.

                     Saturday, 4-6-96: "For Patience"

                 Sometimes you feel that all is lost and gone;
                 You feel it is no use to carry on;
                 You cannot see the light that lies ahead.
                 I pray that you have patience at these times,
                 And know the Lord is working while you wait,
                 As after Jesus died upon the cross,
                 They didn't know that He would rise again.

       Good Friday, 4-5-96: "You Sometimes Need To Sacrifice Yourself"

        
                  This teaching is the hardest one of all,
                  Because it goes against our love of self,
                  And it demands the greatest price by far.
                  By His example, it is shown to us:
                  "You sometimes need to sacrifice yourself.
                  Sometimes there really is no other way."               
                       *            *           *
                  And on this day when He hung on the cross,
                  Enduring cruel pain beyond belief,
                  To save us from the fate that we deserve,
                  I pray that we are grateful for His love,
                  And that we seize the gift of life He gave,
                  And that by His example we are led.
                  In Jesus' name I pray for us, Amen.

                Thursday, 4-4-96: "To Lead You To Your Goal"

        
                  I pray the Lord will lead you to your goal,
                  Despite confusion cast along your way.
                  I pray that you will ask and then receive
                  His holy guidance to provide a path
                  That leads you straight to where you need to go.
                  In Jesus' name I pray for this, Amen.

           Wednesday, 4-3-96: "For Courage When You Need It Most"

               
                 You sometimes may be called to act in danger,
                 As when some evil thing is taking place,
                 And you alone can render needed help,
                 Or when a tragedy has just occured,
                 And you are needed to provide relief.
                 In times like these, I pray you will be strong;
                 I pray for courage when you need it most;
                 I pray that you will rise up to your task,
                 Because you know the Lord is at your side.
                 In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.

             Tuesday, 4-2-96: "For The Special Thing You Want"

                 Perhaps there is a special thing you want,
                 A something you have had to do without,
                 And you are waiting for it to arrive.
                      *            *           *
                 I pray you will receive what you desire;
                 I pray it comes to you this very day;
                 I pray that it brings happiness to you.
                 I pray you keep it long as you may like.
                 In Jesus' name I pray for you, Amen.

                 Monday, 4-1-96: "To Quit Complaining"

                Perhaps this won't apply to you at all,
                Or maybe just a little bit, sometimes,
                But many people fall into the trap
                Of grumbling and complaining all the time:
                "My job's no good; my wife: too fat;
                My house: too small; my car won't run."
                     *            *           *
                The Lord gets weary of this constant noise,
                And wearily, He pulls Himself away
                To go and find more pleasant company,
                Where He will hear more gratitude and praise.
                     
                I pray that you will recognize this fault,
                And do your best to change it for the Lord.
                I pray that you acknowledge all the gifts
                And blessings He has given in your life.
                I pray that you are grateful for them all.
                I pray that you more often praise the Lord,
                And cease your criticism of your world.
                If you need help, then ask: you will receive.
                But do not keep complaining all the time.
                The Lord wants happy children in His life!
                In Jesus' name I pray for you, Amen.

        Sunday, 3-31-96: "The Lord Needs You To Work For Him Today"

                  
                  The Lord needs you to work for Him today;
                  He has a project He needs you to do;
                  And do not worry that you are unfit;
                  He knows you better than you know yourself,
                  And He will give you strength to do the job.

                  I pray that you will listen to His call;
                  I pray that you will help Him in His need.
                  Just tell Him you are ready to be led,
                  And He will lead you where you need to go.
                  You say the Church is Body Of The Christ,
                  So be His hands, and put yourself to work!

         ENVIRONMENTAL HYMN: "O God, This Precious Earth Thou Gave"

                        Scripture: GENESIS 1:27-28

                   So God created man in His own image;       
                   In the image of God He created him;              
                   Male and female He created them.  
                   Then God blessed them, and God said to them,
                   "Be fruitful and multiply; 
                   Fill the earth and subdue it;                         
                   Have dominion over the fish of the sea,               
                   Over the birds of the air, and over
                   Every living thing that moves upon the earth."

                          *           *           *

                   "O God, This Precious Earth Thou Gave"             
                          by William E. McGinnis

                    O God, this precious Earth Thou gave 
                    To us to hold for Thee;
                    Thou gave to us dominion over
                    Land and over sea;
                    Thou gave us mighty power over 
                    Creatures great and small;
                    The Earth: we are responsible        
                    For caring for it all.           
                   
                    But when we look around we find
                    Our damage everywhere;
                    The robins and the sparrows must 
                    Fly through polluted air;
                    The rolling rivers have become 
                    Awash with our debris;
                    The oceans slowly fill with trash
                    Far as the eye can see.

                    The creatures once so plentiful 
                    Can scarcely now be seen;
                    The forests are depleted now 
                    That once were strong and green;
                    Where fish by hundreds once did swim 
                    In rivers pure and clear,
                    The rivers now are toxic gray,
                    And fish do not appear.

                    Forgive us, God, for what we did 
                    In carelessness and haste;
                    We never did intend to cause 
                    Such  damage and such waste;
                    So as in sorrow we repent, 
                    We ask on bended knee
                    To give us, God, the strength now to 
                    Restore the Earth for Thee.
                       
                             Amen.

              Friday, 3-29-96: "Let's Go To Church This Sunday"

                 You have a very busy daily life; 
                 Your job requires twelve hours every day;
                 You hardly see your children anymore;
                 You say your daily prayers and seek the Lord;
                 You haven't found a church you really like;
                 You think you really do not need to go. 
                     *             *            *
                 I pray the Lord will give you what you need:

                 You need to find a church that is your own,
                 Where you and fellow Christians meet with Him.
                 I pray the Lord will lead you to your church;
                 I pray you will be watching for His signs.

                 And having found a church, you need to go.
                 You need the presence of these kindred souls,
                 To help you grow and prosper in the Lord,
                 To keep you walking straightly on His path,
                 For Satan thrives on Christians all alone.

                 I pray that you, this Sunday, will attend.
                 I pray the Lord will meet you at the door. 
                 In Jesus' name I pray for you, Amen.

                Thursday, 3-28-96: "Storing Up Your Treasure"

                You love the Lord, and so you want to serve Him;
                You want to do His will best as you can;
                But sometimes you may wonder if your efforts
                Are gaining any increase for yourself.
                   *              *             *
                First, I pray that you do not feel guilty
                For asking such a question in your heart.
                The Lord has made you, so He knows your nature;
                You cannot help but thinking of yourself.
                And so He gives to you a wondrous blessing;
                A subtle mystery for you to know:
                If you have faith to trust He will reward you,
                He will provide for all your daily needs.
                But more than that, He gives you greater treasure,
                And stores it where the moth cannot corrupt.
                Your efforts for the Lord are never wasted:                
                By serving Him, you also serve yourself.

                Wednesday, 3-27-96: "Cast Into The Darkness"

                 He thought that He was smarter than the Lord;
                 He thought that Science proves there is no God;
                 And since no God, then nothing to obey!
                 And so he lived a rebel from the Lord,
                 Deprived of light, he wandered in the darkness,
                 And when he died, there was no place for him.

                 I pray that you avoid this tragic ending;
                 Avoid the darkness; choose, instead, the light.
                 Join the Lord in His eternal sunshine;
                 Open up your heart and let Him in!

                Tuesday, 3-26-96: "For A Safe Trip By Car""

                 You have your things all loaded in the trunk;
                 Your family is packed into the car;
                 You brought some snacks and water in a box;
                 You are the driver: now your trip begins.
                       *            *            *
                 I pray the Lord will sit there by your side,
                 And guide you as you drive along your way.
                 I pray His gentle spirit fills the car,
                 And keeps the rowdy children calm and quiet.
                 I pray the car performs the way it should,
                 And never fails you in the slightest way.
                 I pray He clears your mind and keeps it sharp,
                 And never lets you slumber at the wheel.
                 I pray that other drivers on the road
]                Will keep their distance safely far from you.
                 I pray the roads are safe, the bridges strong;
                 I pray the weather lets you drive on through.
                 And when your trip is over, safe and sound,
                 I pray that you remember He was there.

                 When all seems bleak and dreary in your life;
                 When every step is weighted down with care;
                 When each new day seems like the day before it;
                 I pray the Lord will brighten up your sky.
                 
                 I pray He sends a robin to your birdbath;
                 I pray He brings a package to your door;
                 I pray you get a phone call from a loved one;
                 I pray the Lord, Himself, will sing to you.

                May God now bless the place that is your home:
                The place where you take refuge from the storm;
                The place you are entitled to possess.
                I pray He sends His Holy Spirit there.
                I pray the Spirit stays to dwell with you
                And drives all evil spirits far away.
                I pray the Spirit keeps you from all harm
                And brings abundant blessings to your door.
                I pray that all who live within your walls
                May richly feel the power of His love.

                  Saturday, 3-23-96: "For Restful Sleep"

               You lie there, sleepless, tossing in your bed;
               Your mind is filled with things you did today,
               And whirling with tomorrow's things to do.
               You need to get your sleep, but sleep eludes you;
               The minutes pass, but you are still awake.
                     *            *            *
               I pray the Lord will let you see this vision:
               Secluded beach, with moonlight through the clouds;
               Upon the rocks the gentle waves are breaking;
               You hear the sounds of ocean in the night.
               You know the Lord is with you as you slumber;
               You fall into a deep and restful sleep.
               
               In Jesus' name I pray for you, Amen.

                  The good, the bad, the mainly in-between.

              Thursday, 3-21-96: "To Those Who Teach The Word"
 
                To those who teach the Word of God to man,
                I pray the Lord will guide you in your work,
                And keep your feet upon His chosen path.

                Be gentle as you teach about the Lord;
                His way is easy, and His burden light.
                Do not drive off the sheep with loud alarms,
                But, rather, bring them back into the fold,
                With loving thoughts and words that sing of truth.

                While all the Word of God is surely true,
                Some parts are more important than the rest.
                (The gold has greater value than the bronze.)
                And needless disputations cause great harm,
                So do not wander off on idle paths.
                Teach first things first, and leave the last for last.
                           
                The most important teachings are quite clear:
                To love the Lord, thy God, with all thy heart;
                And then, to love thy neighbor as thyself.
                The Lord, Himself, did teach that these come first;
                That all the law and prophets hang from these.
                And now that He is risen, we are told:
                "For God so loved the world, He gave His Son;"
                "Believe in Him, and you shall surely live."

                So gather now the pearls of greatest price,
                And leave the lesser stones along the way.
                I pray the Lord will bless you as you teach.
                In Jesus' name I pray for you, Amen.

                  Wednesday, 3-20-96: "To Those In Mortal Danger"
 
                   To those in mortal danger for their life;
                   Who face the threat of death this very day:
                   I Pray the Lord is with you in your need;
                   I pray that He will shield you from all harm;
                   I pray He brings you safely through the storm.

                   But even now, you must remember this:
                   The Lord is God: He does as He will do.
                   He sometimes chooses not to intervene,
                   But let the worldly forces run their course.
                   And you must not complain against His will,
                   For all of us have chosen life on earth,
                   And we were fairly warned before we came.

                   And so, in mortal danger, you might die.
                   I pray you are prepared for this, as well.
                   And if you die, I pray you join the Lord
                   In heaven, where there is no grief or pain,
                   And dwell forever, joyful, at His side.

                  Tuesday, 3-19-96: "For A Successful Operation"


                   The tests are all complete; results are back:
                   You need the operation to be done.
                   Your doctor has explained it all to you,
                   And very soon the surgeons will begin.
                           *           *          *
                   I pray the Lord will be there by your side,
                   And guide the surgeons as they do their work.
                   I pray that all equipment does its job,
                   And everything performs the way it should.          
                   I pray that no distractions interfere
                   As skillful hands work carefully on you.
                   I pray the operation goes as planned,
                   With full success achieved in every way.
                   I pray that you recover very fast,
                   And that you soon return to normal life.
                   In Jesus' name I pray for you, Amen.

                   MY PRAYER FOR YOU, THE READERS OF THIS PAGE

                        Monday, 3-18-96: "For Diligence"

                   Sometimes the goal seems very far away;
                   You wonder if you ever will arrive.
                   Sometimes you wonder if it's worth the trip
                   To reach the place that you set out to go.
                   You sometimes think that you should just give up,
                   Because the end seems farther every day.
                         *             *             *
                   I pray the Lord will hasten to your side,
                   And give to you the diligence you need.
                   I pray that He will join you every day
                   And strengthen you each step along the path.
                   And with His help, I pray you reach your goal.

                  Or those who feel that they are stuck in mud
                  And can't get out without an extra boost;
                  I pray the Lord will help you in your need.
                  I pray that He will give you extra strength
                  To do whatever things you need to do;
                  And later, when the Lord has need of you,
                  I pray that you will help Him in return.

                  I pray that you might meet with Him today.
                  I pray that He reveals himself to you
                  So clearly that you cannot have a doubt.
                  And when you recognize that it is He,
                  I pray that you will let Him in your heart.

                Friday, 3-15-96: "Prayer To Avoid Temptation"


                  I pray the Lord that He will lead your path
                  Away from the temptations all around.
                  I pray that when temptation lingers near,
                  The Lord will lead you not into its reach.
                  But if temptation grabs you as you pass,
                  I pray the Lord that you will struggle free.

                 Thursday, 3-14-96: "Fearlessness In Danger"

                 You sit upon your horse amid the battle;
                 Around you, shells are falling everywhere.
                 A bullet whistles harshly past your forehead;
                 Chaotic sounds of combat fill the air.
                 You raise your sword and call your men to follow;
                 A thousand soldiers rise and march behind.
                 You have no fear, because the Lord is with you;
                 He guides your hand and raises up your arm.
                 He gives you sight to see beyond the danger;
                 He leads you through the dark and chilling night.
                 The Lord is great and greatly does protect you;
                 I pray that He is always by your side.

                   Wednesday, 3-13-96: "Your Friend's New Coat"

                 You see your friend while walking to your car;
                 You notice that he has a nice new coat;
                 And as you stop to talk with him, you think
                 That many things he has are very nice:
                 Far better than the junk that is your own.
                 You feel resentment growing in your heart.
                          *          *         *
                 Resentment has no place within your heart;
                 It casts a cloud on everything you do.
                 A bright and sunny day seems dull and bleak.
                 And so I pray the Lord to enter in
                 And help you feel more grateful for His love.
                 The things you really need He will provide,
                 (But sometimes you must ask specifically.)
                 And if He blesses others more than you,
                 I pray that you remember He is God,
                 And He bestows His favors as he wills.
                          *          *         *
                 You have no claim at all upon the Lord,
                 The things He gives to you are gifts, not debts,
                 For He is God and you are only Man,
                 Created in His image, to be sure,
                 But only image, not the thing itself.
                 You are not God, so do not be confused.

                  To those who have a loved one in distress:
                  If you have done the most that you can do,
                  I pray the Lord will give you peace of mind,
                  To realize that all is in His hands,
                  And that He is the Lord, and He will rule.

                     Monday, 3-11-96: "Feast Of The Wolf" 

                  Your host is charming: smooth and debonair;
                  He tells you all the things you want to hear;
                  He seats you at the table, by his side,
                  With Russian caviar and wine from France.
                  The other guests are chatting merrily,
                  As waiters bring the food on silver trays.

                  Then suddenly a cold wind fills the room;
                  The lights go out, and you are left alone.

                  Your host returns from somewhere in the dark,
                  But now his form has changed into a wolf.
                  He stares at you with cold and hungry eyes.

                         *           *           *

                  I pray the Lord that He will help you now!
                  I pray that He appears in radiant light,
                  And frightens off the wolf into the dark.
                  But why did you first come into this place?
                  Were you not warned of Satan and his tricks?
                  O reckless Man, when will you ever learn?

               The mountain road is rocky and it's steep;
               But you must never fail in your resolve.
               The wind is blowing harshly in your face;
               I pray the Lord will give you legs of steel.

           Saturday, 3-9-96: "Earthly Parent, Heavenly Parent" 

                Your children all are playing in the house;
                The rain outside has kept them in today.
                Little Joel wants to make a bomb,
                And set it off in sister Martha's bus.
                Brother Michael plans a new attack
                To get revenge for Steven's latest sin.
                Our Father looks from heaven, and He weeps.
                I pray you understand the way He feels.

             Friday, 3-8-96: "First Compassion, Then Action" 


               You saw it as it happened on the highway:
               She swerved as he was turning in her path,
               And in a moment they had crashed together:
               Crumpled metal, bodies in the snow.
                    *           *           *
               I pray the Lord will guide you in this crisis,
               And help you do the things that must be done.
               I pray that first He fills you with compassion,
               And then He clears your mind and helps you act.
               I pray He guides your hands to give assistance,
               And render all the help that you can give.
               I pray you are successful in your efforts,
               For as you give, so shall you then receive.
                Amen.

                   Thursday, 3-7-96 "Back To Shore" 

               You wanted to row out upon the lake.
               The day was bright and sunny, so you went.
               And as you rowed, the time passed quickly by.
               You did not notice as the sky grew dark.
               And now, the wind is blowing, and the waves
               Are pounding hard against your tiny boat.
               The shore appears so very far away.
               And suddenly, your boat begins to leak!
                    *             *             *
               I pray the Lord that He will rescue you;
               That He will seal the leak and tow you in.
               And after you have safely reached the shore,
               I pray that you are thankful for His love.

            Prayer: "For The Protection Of Israel From Terrorists"

               Dark clouds gather over Israel,
               And lightning strikes her children as they play.   
               The Great Deceiver finds his latest thrill:
               To murder in the name of holy war.
                     *           *           *
               O Lord, we come to you in solemn prayer,
               That terrorists will cease their vile attacks.
               We pray that you descend on them like lead,
               And make their legs so heavy they can't walk.
               We pray that you intrude upon their minds,
               And fill them with an overwhelming fear.
               We pray that you will enter in their hearts,
               And blot out all the hatred held inside.
               And if they beg for mercy on their souls,
               Repenting truly of their wretched sin,
               We pray that you forgive them of their crimes.
               In Jesus' holy name we pray, Amen.

            I pray for you today that you be cheerful,
            With head held high and sparkle in your eye;
            With warmth of smile, and voice that holds no anger;
            With quickened step, and purpose in your stride.
            I pray the Lord will look on you with pleasure,
            As parents look upon a cheerful child.

              Monday, 3-4-96: "Reclaiming Sex From Satan"

              Give credit to the Lord where credit's due.
              'Twas God who gave you sex; it was not Satan,
              Though Satan tries to claim it as his own.
              (Deceiver Satan claims what is not his;
              The little dog pretends he is a lion.)
              Love the Lord, and you can have your sex,
              In full abundance, better than before,
              For He will give you what you really need:
              A faithful married partner for your life.
              And so I pray that you do clearly know
              The true Provider of this wondrous gift.

              To married men, I say this prayer for you:
              I pray that you will cherish and will love
              The one that you have chosen for your life.
              And then I pray that you will always have
              A robust, healthy love life with your spouse,
              And never give a thought to other charms,
              Though other women may be there for you.
              I pray your love for her may always be
              A true reflection of His love for you.
              In Jesus' name I pray for you, Amen.

             To those who have their doubts about the Lord,
             Who read the Word, but cannot hear its voice,
             Who view the world, but cannot see Design,
             For you I have have a special prayer today:
             I pray the Lord will open up your eyes,
             And let you see His glory all around.

                  Friday, 3-1-96: "Caught Him Cheating" 

              And so you caught him cheating with your friend.
              And now you do not know what you should do.
              Your anger and resentment start to build;
              You feel betrayed; he took you for a fool.
              The man you thought you knew for all these years,
              The father of your children, is untrue!
                     *           *           *
              Sweet Child of God, I know how you must feel.
              My heart goes out in sympathy to you.
              I pray the Lord that He will take control
              And guide you down the path that you should take.
              But first I pray that you will keep in mind
              The fact that all have sinned and fallen short.
              I pray that you will find it in your heart
              To grant forgiveness to the ones at fault,
              And pray for even those who did you wrong.
              We are forgiven as we do forgive.
              In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.

            The icy wind is howling at your face.
            The snow has started sticking on the streets.
            You're walking down the sidewalk, heading home.
            Your day is over, and your work is done.
            I pray you have a warm and cozy house,
            With laughing children and a loving wife.
            I pray that you are greeted at the door
            With smiles and happy kisses from them all.
            I pray the smell of dinner pleases you,
            And after dinner, children on your knee.
            I pray your cup is filled up to the brim
            With overflowing blessings from our Lord.

           Wednesday, February 28, 1996 - "Casting Out" 


HOW TO USE THIS PRAYER:

   First, please read the prayer quickly, scanning it to see if you
   want this prayer said for you or not.  If you do want it said for
   you, then come back and read it again, at the speed of a speaking voice.
   As you read, try to hear my voice actually saying this prayer for
   you. Perhaps you should first say your own prayer, something like this:
   "Lord, please hear this prayer for me. Amen." Then read my
   prayer.  You may repeat this process whenever you want.


NOTE: You should use this prayer only if you are prepared for evil
      spirits to be cast out from you, and for the Lord to be
      invited in, to stay. If evil spirits are cast out and the Lord
      is not in you, then the evil spirits may return, worse than
      before.


                         "Casting Out"
                 
             O Foul and Evil Spirits, hear my voice!
             Know ye that I am working for the Lord!
             You may no longer dwell within this house.
             The Lord is coming here, you cannot stay.
             His holy brightness blinds you with its light.
             His mighty hand will cast you far away.
             So now, be gone and never do return!
             I plead the blood of Jesus; now be gone!
             The holy blood of Jesus; now be gone!

             The fragrant breath of springtime fills the air.
             The house is empty of unwanted guests.

             O Lord, I pray that you will enter now.
             I pray that you will always dwell within.

             In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.

              The interview is over, and you leave.
              Your resume was really pretty good.
              The interview went smoothly, so it seemed,
              You might be just exactly what they need.
              But other people also want the job,
              And other people interviewed today.
              They said they would decide this afternoon.
                    *          *           * 
              I thank the Lord that you have come this far;
              I pray the Lord that you will get the job.

      Monday, February 26, 1996 - "Shuffling Down The Sidewalk" 

              You shuffle down the sidewalk in a daze.
              Your life is going nowhere, you believe.
              You wonder, "Is this all there is to life?"
              You see no meaning, and you feel no joy.
                      *         *          *
              I pray that someone leads you to the Lord;
              I pray that you accept Him as your king.
              For when you choose to follow as He leads,
              Your life is filled with meaning and with joy.
              You have a purpose now: to serve the Lord,
              The highest purpose Man can ever have.

             Sunday, February 25, 1996 - "Rhino Charging" 

            Sometimes you need to quickly clear your mind
            And focus sharply on the need at hand.
            (The rhino has begun to make his charge,
            And you must quickly shoot him, or be killed!)          
            When times like this occur, here is my prayer:
            I pray the Holy Spirit takes control
            And cancels any fear that you may feel.
            And then I pray the Lord will give to you
            The means that you require to save yourself.
            (You coolly raise your gun, then aim and fire!)
            In Jesus' name I pray these things for you.

         I pray the Lord will comfort you in sorrow,
         When sadness fills your heart with dull despair.
         When things you wanted most seem gone forever,
         I pray His loving presence gives you peace.
         When nothing in this world seems safe or certain,
         I pray you have the Lord and He has you.

         I pray a special blessing onto you:
         That He may speak to you more frequently
         And that you may more clearly hear His voice,
         A quiet voice that whispers through the din.

            Thursday, February 22, 1996 - "Daybreak"


       Pushing out the moon and sweeping stars to flight;
       Driving off the evil spirits of the night;
       Rising in his splendor, as the skyline burns;
       Seizing back his kingdom, mighty Sun returns.

           I pray the Lord that He will give His light
           To you, so you may clearly see the way.

           The fog is rolling in across the field,
           And just beyond the woods you hear her voice,
           Although you cannot see her through the mist.
           I pray the Lord will push aside the clouds
           And let His sunlight burn away the fog
           So you can safely join her at the stream.

           And wipe away the troubles in your life.

        The Lord is great, and greatly to be praised!
        He made the Earth and all that dwells within;
        He lifted up the sun and moon and stars,
        And all the galaxies that lie beyond.
        But never in His greatness did He make
        A piece of work more wonderful than Man.
        For in His holy image we are formed.
        I pray that you appreciate our God.

         To someone who is blotting out the light,
         I'm sorry you have fallen in this trap!
         The Great Deceiver has you in his grasp!
         I pray he doesn't squeeze you till you burst.
         I pray the Lord that He will soothe your mind
         And give you peace, which now you do not have.

          You sit upon your tractor in the field.
          The morning sun has just begun to shine.
          Beyond you lies the land that you must plow.
          You start the engine and begin to work.
          I pray the Lord will keep you in His sight,
          And guide you down each furrow as you go.
          And when the day is over and you leave,
          I pray the Lord is pleased with what you did.

         I hope your yesterday was filled with love.

         And maybe roses, from someone who cares.
         Our earthly love is wonderful and strong.

         I pray that you will open up your heart

         A hundred dozen roses for your soul!

         Today is known throughout the world for love,

         And have and hold and keep the love you need.

                 Tuesday, February 13, 1996


         You are Mother, walking with your child
         Along the crowded highway, holding hands.
         A truck is heading toward you very close.
         I pray the Lord to keep you safe from harm.

         MY PRAYER FOR YOU, THE READERS OF THIS PAGE

                 Monday, February 12, 1996


         When raging heathen pound upon your door
         And trample all the flowers in your yard;
         When shouting and dissention fill your days,
         I pray the Lord that He will give you peace.

                 Sunday, February 11, 1996


         So now I come to say a prayer for you
         That all the dreams you hold within your heart
         May be fulfilled;
         And all your burdens quickly pass away.
         In Jesus' name I pray for you, Amen.
