PRAYER AND THE BIBLE

Psalm 45 New Living Translation (NLT)

Psalm 45

For the choir director: A love song to be sung to the tune “Lilies.” A psalm[a] of the descendants of Korah.

Beautiful words stir my heart.
    I will recite a lovely poem about the king,
    for my tongue is like the pen of a skillful poet.

You are the most handsome of all.
    Gracious words stream from your lips.
    God himself has blessed you forever.
Put on your sword, O mighty warrior!
    You are so glorious, so majestic!
In your majesty, ride out to victory,
    defending truth, humility, and justice.
    Go forth to perform awe-inspiring deeds!
Your arrows are sharp, piercing your enemies’ hearts.
    The nations fall beneath your feet.

Your throne, O God,[b] endures forever and ever.
    You rule with a scepter of justice.
You love justice and hate evil.
    Therefore God, your God, has anointed you,
    pouring out the oil of joy on you more than on anyone else.
Myrrh, aloes, and cassia perfume your robes.
    In ivory palaces the music of strings entertains you.
Kings’ daughters are among your noble women.
    At your right side stands the queen,
    wearing jewelry of finest gold from Ophir!

10 Listen to me, O royal daughter; take to heart what I say.
    Forget your people and your family far away.
11 For your royal husband delights in your beauty;
    honor him, for he is your lord.
12 The princess of Tyre[c] will shower you with gifts.
    The wealthy will beg your favor.
13 The bride, a princess, looks glorious
    in her golden gown.
14 In her beautiful robes, she is led to the king,
    accompanied by her bridesmaids.
15 What a joyful and enthusiastic procession
    as they enter the king’s palace!

16 Your sons will become kings like their father.
    You will make them rulers over many lands.
17 I will bring honor to your name in every generation.
    Therefore, the nations will praise you forever and ever.

THE PRAYER OF JABEZ

1 Chronicles 4:9-10 The Voice (VOICE)

Jabez, whose name commemorates his mother’s labor pains, was more honorable than his brothers. 10 He asked the God of Israel, “Please bless me and extend my territory. Let Your hand be with me and guard me from harm so I will not experience pain as my mother did.” And God did just that.The Voice (VOICE)

THE JESUS LETTER

The Jesus Letter

Good Morning Everyone,

It’s around 6:45 in the morning and I cannot explain the peace that I feel. I just finished praying. When I came out of the prayer I had this peace of God that I have not felt in years. When I was done praying… The Holy Spirit prayed something to me… He said… “You haven’t done this in years. You haven’t worshiped me like this in years.”

Honestly… I feel heartbroken and guilty. Because I know what God is saying to me. Years ago I was on fire and in love with God. I dated Him.. I loved Him.. I listened to Him.. I heard Him. I LOVED HIM !

There was a time that God warned me in a dream not to date someone because he was sent by the devil to get me off course.. Man.. was that true. I spiraled out of control. I left the church. I gave up on God. I was threw… I was done. But in my lowest… I mean my LOWEST ! The Lord came to me and spoke.. He said, “I am the GOD OF HOSEA.”

Can you imagine ? Being so low in sin.. and God loves me so much that He spoke to me to bring me back..

Years.. Years.. Years..

God I love you so much.

This week I hear the Lord saying… “I’m restoring the years.”

God is restoring the years and the time that you cried yourself to sleep. The times people lied and laughed at you. GOD SAID ! “I’m making all things new”

In the midst of this REFUSE to complain ! No matter what you may face today…absolutely refuse and trust God ! Because this is the week that God is going to make you forget the years !

Love ,

Diamond ❤
