Just Thinking?

Waiting for the fire works to begin on the 4th of July a friend and I started a conversation about the recent Supreme court ruling on marriage. To make a long story short here is what we came up with: Like the Catholic Church we believe that marriage is as referred to in the Bible is known to be called; The Holy Sacrament of Marriage. Because it is from the Bible and is Holy and falls under the guidelines of a religious practice; What business does the State (Government, Feds) have in getting their nose into saying what is marriage?
One reason is they have made it a tax by making people having to get a marriage license before getting married. A marriage license is a tax on Religion. When the state stuck their nose into issuing marriage licenses they violated the First Amendment. Where is the ACLUASSES, or whatever they are called, you know those people who do not want us to pray period; on fighting for the separation of church and state on this one?
I was just thinking maybe I should not have been thinking so much. What are your thoughts on this?

Monday Quote!

Power of Grace

J Thomas

“Donkey Tells, The Beginning”

Whispers of honey that breaks the chains that in slaves us, it is the power that frees us.

Monday Quote!

Matthew  Arnold 1822-1888

For this is the true strength of guilty kings,

When they corrupt the souls of those they rule.

Quote of the month from Winnie the Pooh:

My spelling is wobbly.

It’s good spelling but it wobbles

and the letters get in

the wrong places!

Oh Pooh Bear I just know how you feel my spelling  also wobbles!

This post is just to tell everyone Men of One Accord will be shutting down for some time for I shall be moving to Knoxville Tn. It is a little over 700 mile move and I am not sure now long I shall be without internet. I will try to keep up with you all out there as I use my laptop in wi-fi hot spots to read your posts and email. May I ask of you to keep my wife and I in your prayers as we make this move as our Abba places us upon your hearts.

When Men of One Accord returns it shall be in a new city answering a new calling of God in my life. I know I shall still be in men’s prayer groups but now writing for the souls of our children. As the prophet Joel called out to his people to repent I too cry out so that our children may learn of the love of Jesus.

Joel 1:3

Tell it to your children,

and let your children tell it

to their children,

and their children to the next

generation.

May the love of Jesus fill you to overflowing, may His peace surround you, and in your weakness may you rest in His loving arms, Amen.

A Request For Prayer?

I received this request for prayer in my comments and replied that I would pass on the request through my blog. I was so deeply moved in the Spirit it took me some time before I could even  write to ask for others to pray. Yes this request is not from a country were one is free to worship Yeshua. These are the words that were in the comment:

dear men of one accord plz put us up in your prayers this day as the devil is attacking us from all sides the guarding angels are and will continue to be with us all but your prayers will also help. if two or more are gathered in his name jesus will oversee us and thru our most difficult times as the mission here grows the monetary parts are expanding too plz pray for a big blessing of monies to help in our daily operations and to give us a renewed sense of responsibility with our work in the field here. god bless u all and thank u in advances for all ur help

Thank-you all for joining with me in prayer for our brothers and sisters in Yeshua our Messiah.

The Leper’s Prayer

This Poem has touched my heart, for they are the words I could not find within my own self to pray as in needed. Amen and Amen !!

No Other Arms!

No other place for me

No other arms

could set a soul free

protected from Satan’s harm

secure in Yeshua’s arms

No other place indeed.

I know I said it would be some time before a posted again. I also said I would still follow others post, so in reading T,s post on “A Story By Me” her poem inspired this poem I wrote in her comments to her poem.  I was really touched by her post and here is the link to her post. Thank-you T and God Bless.

Fear’s Face

I have looked in the face of fear 

many times.

I look at fear’s face

each day.

I have the freewill on how 

to gaze into

fear’s eyes.

Will I choose to runaway to 

another place? 

Hoping not to glimpse 

fear’s scowl!

Might I choose to shrink, back away,

 then vanish?

Desiring an escape of

fear’s leer!

Could I be a silhouette

inside myself?

Cowardly snaking from

 fear’s thunder! 

I have looked in the face of fear 

many times.

I look at fear’s face

each day.

I have the freewill on how 

to gaze into

fear’s eyes.

I choose to fall on my knees

to pray.

As the rising Son melts away

fear’s foundation.

I pick-up my cross and follow the Son

with the Spirit’s 

mighty embrace!

Watching the crumbling of

fear’s stronghold!

I cry out Mighty Mighty is He 

the Lamb of God 

the Lion of Judea 

Who Was and Who Is and

Who Is Forever More! 

Yeshua Messiah!

Humble and meek I choose 

to rejoice as Abba Father whisks away

fear’s dust.

Then replacing stone upon stone building towers

called Faith.

I look at Yeshua’s face

each day.

I have the freewill on how 

to gaze into

Yeshua’s eyes.

I choose to pray at His feet 

where I find

Towers called Faith.

AMEN.

Quotes on Prayer! XII

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

The most eloquent prayer is the prayer through hands that heal and bless. The highest form of worship is the worship of unselfish Christian service. The greatest form of praise is the sound of consecrated feet seeking out the lost and helpless.

Billy Graham

Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men. Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for powers equal to your tasks. Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle, but shall be the miracle.

Phillips Brooks

Certain thoughts are prayers. There are moments when, whatever be the attitude of the body, the soul is on its knees.

Victor Hugo

Good Shepherd and Guardian of our souls, we adore You. We adore You in Spirit and in Truth. Let us not lose heart, except to make more room for You in our hearts. Amen.

St. Francis of Assisi

Prayer is striking the winning blow. Service is gathering up the results.

S. D. Gordon

Prayer should never be an excuse for inaction. Nehemiah prayed, but he also set guards for protection. He used common sense. As a result, what had not been done in a hundred years’ time was finished in fifty-two days.

Corrie ten Boom

Nothing is so costly, so exorbitant, so extortionate, as that which is bought by prayer. While, on the other hand, nothing is so truly and everlastingly enriching as that which is gotten and held by prayer, and by prayer alone.

Alexander Whyte

The answer to a prayer request may indeed be long-delayed, but there is no delay at all in an answer to the prayer itself. When we cry out there is immediately an answer speedily God rushes to help. The answer may be the squeeze of the Father’s hand on ours, the quiet comfort of the Father’s voice, the reassurance of the Father’s presence even though the stresses and pressures are still evident.

Emilie Barnes 

The end we ought to propose to ourselves is to become, in this life, the most perfect worshipers of God we can possibly be, as we hope to be through all eternity.

Brother Lawrence, a sixteenth-century monk

Somebody once said God feeds the sparrow, but God never throws the food in the nest. Christ like men, who are wise never make prayer a substitute for work, nor work an excuse not to pray.

Life’s Hallways

In life’s hallway,

Pass a door of bondage chains and sin,

to an open door awaits,

Yoke is lighten burdens removed,

for a door has closed behind me, 

in this humble hall I walk, 

as time passes,

with praise and worship on my lips, 

as my Abba leads. 

Pass a door of self-service, 

for an open door awaits,

Into the hall of preparation,

a door has closed behind me,

in this humble hall I walk,

as time passes,

 with praise and worship upon my lips,

as my Abba leads.

Pass a door of covetousness and strife,

to an open door awaits,

Trials to be counted for joy,

for a door has closed behind me,

in this humble hall I walk,

as time passes,

with praise and worship on my lips,

as my Abba leads.

Pass a door of riches’ comfort,

to an open door awaits,

Persecution qualifies partakers,

for a door has closed behind me, 

in this humble hall I walk,

as time passes,

with praise and worship upon my lips,

as my Abba leads.

Pass a door of Hell’s Eternal Death,

to an open door awaits,

Heaven’s Forever Peace,

for a door has closed behind me, 

on His golden streets I dance,

as time forever passes,

with praise and worship on my lips,

As Abba Father Leads.
