Daily Prayer

Daily Prayer

Just a little note to express my thanks to God that I live in a nation in which I am allowed the privilege to share my love of the Lord my savior publicly as well as in private. I like to share in different ways, of course. One way I share is giving copies of Our Daily Bread to people I may know or in most cases I have never met. I also make sure there are copies at my church foyer.

What is Our Daily Bread? Well, it is a 4 x 6 booklet which contains three months of daily inspirational stories to which a passage from the bible is applied for contemplation.

This little booklet gives a reader time with God’s word, application of God’s word in real “shoe leather” and a means for prayer and prayerful thought daily. It’s another added yet simple means I use myself to stay “plugged in” with my maker.

I offer a free booklet to each visitor to Don’t Delay…Pray!!! If desired or needed. I also provide the website so anyone may request a free copy direct from Our Daily Bread on their own. Plus, while at the Daily Bread site a whole myriad of booklets, books and spirit uplifts items are available.

Just in case….

Here is the web site and address for Our Daily Bread:

We Reap What We Sow!

 

My cousin sent me a transcript of a Ben Stein Commentary. I was motivated to  post this important view point for all to read.

The following was written by Ben Stein and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary.

My confession:
I don’t like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don’t think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period. I have no idea where the concept came from, that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can’t find it in the Constitution and I don’t like it being shoved down my throat.

Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship celebrities and we aren’t allowed to worship God as we understand Him? I guess that’s a sign that I’m getting old, too. But there are a lot of us who are wondering where these celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to.

In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different: This is not intended to be a joke; it’s not funny, it’s intended to get you thinking.

In light of recent events–terrorists attacks, school shootings, etc. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O’Hare (she was murdered, her body found a few years ago) complained she didn’t want prayer in our schools, and we said OK. Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school .

The Bible says thou shalt not kill; thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK.

Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn’t spank our children when they misbehave, because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock’s son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he’s talking about. And we said okay.

Now we’re asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don’t know right from wrong, and why it doesn’t bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.

Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with, ‘WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.’

Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world’s going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says. Funny how you can send ‘jokes’ through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing. Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.

Are you laughing yet?

Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you’re not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it.

Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us.
