O, THE BLOOD OF JESUS - Anonymous - Public Domain

                         O, the blood of Jesus;
                         O, the blood of Jesus;
                         O, the blood of Jesus;
                         It washes white as snow!

             " . . . and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son
              cleanseth us from all sin." (1 John 1:7b KJV)
             " . . . though your sins be as scarlet, they
              shall be white as snow." (Isaiah 1:18b KJV)

                  *                 *                   *
    NOTE: This is a very special and very powerful hymn.  Demons hate to
    hear it, and they flee when it is played or sung.  If you play or
    sing this hymn repeatedly, it seems to open up a direct channel
    to the Holy Spirit. You will know what I mean when this happens to
    you. I believe that this is perhaps the Lord's very favorite hymn.

Blessings to you in Jesus Christ our Lord.

Declaration Of Faith

The Apostles' Creed
   This historic affirmation of faith comes to us from the early
   centuries of the Christian church.
      I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
      Maker of heaven and earth:
      And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord;
      Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost;
      Born of the Virgin Mary,
      Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
      Was crucified, dead, and buried;
      He descended into hell;
      The third day he rose again from the dead;
      He ascended into heaven
      And sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
      From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
      I believe in the Holy Ghost;
      The holy catholic church;     *
      The communion of saints;
      The forgiveness of sins;
      The resurrection of the body;
      And the life everlasting.
                * Note: "catholic church" here means the entire body of
                  believers in Christ, not just one particular church.

The Lord's Prayer

The Lord, Himself, taught us to pray like this . . .
                     The Lord's Prayer 
          Our Father, who art in heaven,
            hallowed be thy Name,
            thy kingdom come,
            thy will be done,
              on earth as it is in heaven.
          Give us this day our daily bread.
          And forgive us our trespasses,
            as we forgive those who trespass against us.
          And lead us not into temptation,
            but deliver us from evil.
          For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,
            for ever and ever. Amen.

The Lorica, or Breastplate, Of Saint Patrick
A Powerful Christian Prayer For Protection

Play MP3 => HERE!

Find out at http://www.Internet Church Of Christ - You can do it, too!

    "The Deer's Cry" also known as "The Breastplate of St. Patrick" and
                                "The Lorica"
   This powerful prayer was composed by Saint Patrick in the year 433. He
   had learned that the Druids had set an ambush to try to kill him and
   his group en route to the king's court. So during during the march,
   they chanted this prayer for protection. As the Druids lay in hiding,
   ready to kill, they saw not Patrick and his men, but a gentle doe
   followed by twenty fawns.
   As this prayer protected Saint Patrick and his men from their enemies,
   so may it also protect you from all of your enemies, mortal and
                      The Lorica ("The Deer's Cry")
   I arise today
     Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
     Through belief in the Threeness,
     Through confession of the Oneness
       of the Creator of creation.
   I arise today
     Through the strength of Christ's birth with His baptism,
     Through the strength of His crucifixion with His burial,
     Through the strength of His resurrection with His ascension,
     Through the strength of His descent for the judgment of doom.
   I arise today
     Through the strength of the love of cherubim,
     In the obedience of angels,
     In the service of archangels,
     In the hope of resurrection to meet with reward,
     In the prayers of patriarchs,
     In the predictions of prophets,
     In the preaching of apostles,
     In the faith of confessors,
     In the innocence of holy virgins,
     In the deeds of righteous men.
   I arise today, through
     The strength of heaven,
     The light of the sun,
     The radiance of the moon,
     The splendor of fire,
     The speed of lightning,
     The swiftness of wind,
     The depth of the sea,
     The stability of the earth,
     The firmness of rock.
   I arise today, through
     God's strength to pilot me,
     God's might to uphold me,
     God's wisdom to guide me,
     God's eye to look before me,
     God's ear to hear me,
     God's word to speak for me,
     God's hand to guard me,
     God's shield to protect me,
     God's host to save me
       From snares of devils,
       From temptation of vices,
       From everyone who shall wish me ill,
         afar and near.
   I summon today
     All these powers between me and those evils,
       Against every cruel and merciless power
         that may oppose my body and soul,
       Against incantations of false prophets,
       Against black laws of pagandom,
       Against false laws of heretics,
       Against craft of idolatry,
       Against spells of witches and smiths and wizards,
       Against every knowledge that corrupts man's body and soul;
     Christ to shield me today
       Against poison, against burning,
       Against drowning, against wounding,
       So that there may come to me an abundance of reward.
          Christ with me,
          Christ before me,
          Christ behind me,
          Christ in me,
          Christ beneath me,
          Christ above me,
          Christ on my right,
          Christ on my left,
          Christ when I lie down,
          Christ when I sit down,
          Christ when I arise,
          Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
          Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
          Christ in every eye that sees me,
          Christ in every ear that hears me.
   I arise today
     Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
     Through belief in the Threeness,
     Through confession of the Oneness
       of the Creator of creation.
                       by St. Patrick, 433 A. D.

Prayer For You

               "Prepare to Be Delivered From Demons"
                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.

Closing Hymn

"A Mighty Fortress Is Our God"

Click HERE to start the music => Words are by Martin Luther, translated. Music (EIN' FESTE BURG) is by Martin Luther, arranged by J. S. Bach, with MIDI sequence by Bill McGinnis from a published Bach arrangement. Everything here is Public Domain, free for all to use without restriction.

A MIGHTY FORTRESS IS OUR GOD - by Martin Luther (1529), Translated by
                               Frederick H. Hedge (1853).

           A mighty fortress is our God,
           A bulwark never failing;
           Our helper He, amid the flood
           Of mortal ills prevailing.
           For still our ancient foe
           Doth seek to work us woe;
           His craft and pow'r are great,
           And, armed with cruel hate,
           On earth is not his equal.
           Did we in our own strength confide,
           Our striving would be losing,
           Were not the right Man on our side,
           The Man of God's own choosing.
           Dost ask who that may be? Christ Jesus, it is He;
           Lord Sabaoth His name,
           From age to age the same,
           And He must win the battle.
           And though this world, with devils filled,
           Should threaten to undo us,
           We will not fear, for God hath willed
           His truth to triumph through us.
           The prince of darkness grim -
           We tremble not for him;
           His rage we can endure,
           For lo! his doom is sure;
           One little word shall fell him.
           That word above all earthly pow'rs -
           No thanks to them - abideth;
           The Spirit and the gifts are ours
           Through Him Who with us sideth.
           Let goods and kindred go,
           This mortal life also;
           The body they may kill;
           God's truth abideth still,
           His kingdom is for ever.


      "Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in
       all ways. The Lord be with you all." (2 Thessalonians 3:16 RSV)

Blessings to you in Jesus Christ our Lord!
