Lord, I lift them up in prayer….

I hope insanitybytes22 does not mind passing this along, but here is a blessing, gift wrapped for you to open.

This comes from a real good place, and judge for yourself if you could add an amen.

No condemnation, yet empowerment, for one and all, through the person, work, and worth of the Lord Christ.

See, there's this thing called biology...

Lord, I lift them up in prayer and beg you to show them the same mercy and forgiveness that you have shown me. Those men whose hearts are hard, who wallow in hatred and unforgiveness, who may drive people away from Christ with harsh words and misunderstood scripture.

Lord, I fear for those who misuse your Word and pray you wrap them in your steadfast patience and mercy. Forgive them Father, some know not what they do.

I do not wish to shame or silence these men with my prayers, Lord, instead I pray their eyes to be opened and the love of Christ to fill their hearts. I pray their wounds to be healed, their broken hearts repaired, and their sins forgiven.

I pray for them to be freed of their bondages, their eyes cleared of deceptions, and for them to come to know you as I know you…

    Yawn – Sorry, would you repeat that?

    EDIT- Vid nixed
    CS sez: Archx, If I was the vindictive type, I would be furious at your video suggestion. Unfortunately for you, this is not a matter of humor HERE, and let’s just say, it would have been far better for you to ignore this prayer, than to drag your dark shadows into an area clearly out of your pay grade.

    It’s fine if you care not for prayer, I get it, we all get it, but geez, to ridicule something good and decent is beyond me. Sometimes it’s better to just keep quiet. And it also wouldn’t hurt to consider how such prayer comes from clay vessels.

      You mean beneath my pay grade, don’t you? Clearly you believe that mumbling to yourself is likely to magically change anything, and that is indeed laughable.

      You, yourself, have intimated that the history of the world was written before it began, if so, are you really saying that your god would change a multi-billion-year old plan on your whim? Does that make sense, even to you? So if it doesn’t change anything, why do it? And if it DOES change things, then clearly the history of the world is in fact NOT set in stone, and is in fact quite malleable.

      What happens, CS, when two football teams each pray to win. A person prays for sun while another prays for rain? How is this nonsense not funny?

        Whether you believe in prayer or not is not the issue here. I passed this along because I am in complete accord with the words and intent, knowing many others will nod the head in silent agreement.

        This is about a woman’s heart that you are putting on trial that I find extremely distasteful, but am not surprised.

        Surely you can find more worthier things to chastise.

        No, we do not ask God to change ‘on a whim,’ but I’ll tell ya, He appreciates it when a few broken vessels express their dependence, and confess our need for one greater than ourselves.

        Must be wonderful to have no need for one greater than yourself. This post is hardly a matter for debate.

          I raised my children to be entirely independent, and can’t fathom why a “supreme being” would want others to be dependent on him – what possible kind of neurosis would he have to have?

          Independent eh?

          Hmm, you have managed to teach them how to survive without food, air, water, shelter, clothing………….

          Wow, I have underestimated your skills.

          I have been extremely patient with you here arch; please do not seek to further tarnish a good woman’s prayer. If you would look carefully, you just may see something rather pleasant.

          Mr arch-

          You need to be more careful with words. You said you raised them to be ‘entirely independent,’ and I pointed out the obvious fact that they are totally dependent.

          It’s just a simple matter of the Landlord thing…………..

          Btw, I take note that a person such as yourself is included in this prayer by my friend.

          Perhaps, but the Landlord I speak of owns everything; we are but tenants.

          He owns those things you are dependent of. Air, land, water, leather for clothing from the animals.

          It’s easy to be thankful, and prayer is also thanksgiving. Just remember Saul of Tarsus was cold hearted, every man is reachable, even you.
