JOHN 5:5-6: “Now a certain man had been an invalid there for thirty-eight years. Seeing him lying there and knowing he had been that way a long time, Yeshua said to him, “Do you want to get well?” TLV

OBSERVATION: “Do you want to get well?” This is a profound question that comes to every man and woman in their lifetime. There are so many times when we face prolonged trials, illnesses, and difficulties. They can become so common place that we accept them as the norm and simply embrace our situation as one that will never change.

Such was the case of the invalid laying by the Pool of Bethesda. He had been an invalid for thirty-eight years. Daily he was laid by the Pool which was thought to have healing powers. However, the healing power was only granted to the first one who was placed in the pool when the waters were stirred. Herein lied the dilemma. This man was an invalid. He did not have anyone to help him into the pool. So every opportunity that he had was never realized. How could an invalid beat anyone into the pool?

When Jesus encountered this invalid he asked him the crucial question, “Do you want to get well?” Naturally the man must have felt taken back by this question. If he didn’t want to get well why would he be there in the first place? So he answered Jesus without answering Jesus, he simply made an excuse why he was not made whole.

The invalid answered Him,

  • “Sir, I have nobody to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up. While I’m trying to get in, somebody else steps down before me!” John 5:5, 7 TLV

Jesus did not entertain his excuse, Jesus commanded his healing.

  • “Yeshua tells him, “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk!”” John 5:5, 8 TLV

Why was the man able to pick up his mat and walk, when he was not able for years to make his way into the Pool of Bethesda? No doubt there was an impartation of a gift of faith from the Lord to this man. Yet, there was something more. There was a realigning of his focus from what was limiting him, to Who was commanding him. When we focus on our limitations we will always be caught in an endless spiral of doubt, fear, and disappointment. However, when we turn our focus to the Lord we will be filled with faith, comfort, and hope.

Unlike the invalid, many times our healing does not come miraculously or immediately. Yet, this story reminds us that if we have the wrong focus, if we are placing our faith in the wrong thing, we may continue to be stuck in our current situation and never hear the word from the Lord, “Do you want to get well?” This is especially true when it comes to deep seated emotional hurts in our lives. Disappointment, anger, and un-forgiveness can keep us trapped on the edge of recovery. It is only when we lay these things down and turn them over to the Lord that we hear His words.

When Jesus had healed this man he caught up with him in the Temple. Jesus’ next instruction to this man is even more powerful than His word to pick up his mat and walk. Jesus said,

  • “Afterward Jesus found him in the temple, and said to him, “See, you have been made well. Sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon you.”” John 5:14 NKJV

Someone may read this and say, “Ahah! I knew that this man was sick because of his sin!” May I say that sin can cause sickness, yet it is clear from the Scriptures and from life that all sickness is not the result of an overt act of sin. Yet, if we understand how God views sin, we can understand the words of Jesus. The greatest sin is to place anything in our lives above God. This is idolatry. For the man who was healed, his idolatry was the Pool of Bethesda itself. For it was what he had put his faith and trust in.

If we put our faith and trust in anything or anyone else, we remove our position from the very One who can heal us! Faith is not a work, it is an act of trust. Imagine what would have happened if the man did not begin to walk in his new found healing, but simply returned back to the Pool of Bethesda and stared at it all day long. The latter condition would have been worse than the former. Why? Because he would have failed to enter into God’s destiny and will for his life!

God loves us enough to reveal in our lives what needs to change. Just like this man, if we turn our eyes toward Jesus, if we tune our ear to the still small voice of the Holy Spirit, we will hear His call.

There was a time in my life when I held extreme anger toward an individual who had deeply wounded me. I rehearsed this anger over and over again in my mind. It consumed me, controlled me, and colored everything I did in my life.Then I heard the voice of the Lord – “Pray for and bless the one who has hurt you.” What? Like the man at the pool I resisted because it was impossible for me to do this!

Then I discovered a wonderful truth. What is impossible with man is possible with God! I knew I had to obey. I began to pray for this individual. I prayed that he would come to a saving knowledge of the Lord. I prayed that God would bless him in his life, in his business, and in his family. When I started to do this I had no feeling. In fact I felt like a hypocrite. Yet, it is never hypocrisy to obey God, even when our feelings our lagging behind. It did not happen overnight, but as I kept praying and blessing this man, my anger started to subside and its hold on me grew weaker and weaker. Then one day it happened – I was healed!

This was not the last time in my life I have been deeply hurt or disappointed. However, it taught me to quickly turn this over to the Lord and begin to bless rather than rehearse the pain. When I choose to place my trust in Jesus Christ, and when I refuse to rehearse the offense or pain, I find myself in the place where healing can flow to my life. I have seen this both emotionally, spiritually, and physically. There are still areas in my life that need healing, but I know He is ever present, and He will guide me with grace, strength, patience, and His healing hand!

Lord, this morning, forgive me for the times I have turned my eyes away from You and placed them on something that can never bring the healing in my life that I so desperately need. Today I turn my eyes to You. Heal me, forgive me, cleanse me, and help me walk in the abundance of Your mercy and grace!

In Jesus Name!

JOHN 2:6-10: “Now there were six stone jars, used for the Jewish ritual of purification, each holding two to three measures. Yeshua said to them, “Fill the jars with water!” So they filled them up to the top. Then He said to them, “Take some water out, and give it to the headwaiter.” And they brought it. Now the headwaiter did not know where it had come from, but the servants who had drawn the water knew. As the headwaiter tasted the water that had become wine, he calls the bridegroom and says to him, “Everyone brings out the good wine first, and whenever they are drunk, then the worse. But you’ve reserved the good wine until now!” TLV

OBSERVATION: Am I positioned to be transformed? The very first miracle that Jesus performed is a wonderful picture of what He desires to do in my life. Yet, within this story there is also some hidden nuggets of what I need to do in order to position my life to receive this transformation.

Transformation from the Lord does not come in the mountaintop experiences of life. Have you ever noticed that the emotional and spiritual high you experience on the mountaintop soon fades away? Many times it not only fades away, but you realize that you are left struggling with the same issues as you had before the mountaintop. Peter encountered Jesus in all of His glory on the Mount of Transfiguration, and yet Peter still denied Jesus three times.  The Lord’s first miracle took place at an ordinary wedding celebration where no one expected anything miraculous to happen.

Transformation from the Lord demands that we acknowledge our need for transformation. At the wedding they had run out of wine. There was no time or opportunity to buy more. The celebration was still underway and it would have been a disgrace for the wedding party to not be able to serve their guests. Mary understood this, knew that there was no other recourse, so she went to Jesus. When we lay down all of our efforts and come to the place of trusting Jesus alone, we are in the position to receive His transformation.

Transformation from the Lord comes when we empty ourselves. It is one thing to recognize our need, it is another to empty ourselves through repentance. The clay jars that were used by Jesus were jars that were used for purification. They were used for ceremonial washing. This was to remove filth from either the person who was consecrating himself, or from the utensils used in service to the Lord. These ordinary vessels were empty. The vessels of our life are emptied when we humble ourselves, repent of our sin, and place ourselves under the mighty hand of God.

Transformation from the Lord comes when we allow Him to fill us to overflowing with His living water. Water in the Scriptures represents the power of the Holy Spirit. As we are filled with the Holy Spirit the Lord begins His work of transformation in our lives. What once was ordinary, stained with sin, now becomes a vessel of holiness filled with His grace. And this vessel is continually transformed, day by day, degree by degree, by the power of this living water – the Holy Spirit in our lives!

  • “Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the Ruach ADONAI is, there is freedom. But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory—just as from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” 2 Corinthians 3:17-18 TLV

Transformation from the Lord surprises us, and it also surprises others. When we see the wonderful work the Lord is doing in our lives, and when we reflect upon our condition before the Lord began this work, we have no choice but to stand in wonder at the power of His transforming grace. And those who know us begin to wonder too. It is this wonderful power of transformation through the Spirit that brings glory to the Lord and leads others to Jesus Christ. This wonder should continue throughout our lives. It is God’s desire and design to use our transformed lives to transform this world!

Lord, this morning I am humbled by Your mighty transforming power. If I am holding onto anything that is hindering the Holy Spirit from transforming my life, please reveal this to me and give me the grace to empty myself so that i can be filled to overflowing.

Fill me anew with the Holy Spirit, grant me Your great grace, and transform my life!

In Jesus Name!

LUKE 23:8-11: “Now Herod was overjoyed when he saw Yeshua, for he had wanted to see Him for a long time, because he had heard about Him and was hoping to see some miracle done by Him. He was questioning Yeshua on many issues, but Yeshua did not answer at all. And the ruling kohanim and the Torah scholars stood their ground, strongly accusing Him. Now Herod together with his soldiers were treating Him with contempt and mocking Him. They put splendid clothing on Him and sent Him back to Pilate.” TLV

OBSERVATION: How do I respond to personal opposition in my life? When Jesus was brought before Herod He was mocked and falsely accused by the leading priests, rulers, and by Herod and his soldiers. Yet, Jesus did not answer them at all. Jesus quietly and humbly stood there entrusting His life to the Father.

This was not the common response of an accused man. In fact, their accusations and mockery were simply baiting that was aimed at causing Jesus to say something that would condemn Him. Even when Pilate asked Him if He was the King of the Jews Jesus simply replied, “As you say.” Jesus was the epitome of meekness – power under control.

There is a difference between Jesus and me. When I face opposition in life, even when I am falsely accused, I am not innocent. Jesus was innocent, and I am a sinner saved by grace. Even though I have been fully forgiven and pardoned through Christ’s sacrifice, I still am in the process of becoming like Jesus, and my actions continually need to be purified. The more defensive I am when I face opposition, the more it is clear that I have something that needs to be changed in my life.

There is a difference between speaking the truth in love and being defensive. One is aimed at the benefit of those who are listening, the other is aimed at saving face. When I react defensively I am simply admitting that I have some responsibility in what is being said. However, when I humble myself before the Lord and others, when I listen with an open heart, and when I position myself in repentance, I have the opportunity of seeing God change and refine me.

When I resist being defensive, when I listen with an open heart, I find that I discover the truth. The truth is the only thing that will ever truly set me free. If I have a blind spot, all that defensiveness will do is allow that spot to continue and to grow. And, just like with driving, a blind spot in our lives that continues to grow will lead us into a collision in our relationships. This is why James exhorts us,

  • “Know this, my dear brothers and sisters: let every person be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to anger— for human anger doesn’t produce the righteousness of God. So put away all moral filth and excess of evil and receive with humility the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.” Jacob (James) 1:19-21 TLV

A defensive ear will never hear the truth that is able to save their soul. Yet, a humble ear, a meek ear that is quick to listen, will find the truth that will set them free. Lord, help me to walk as You walked. Help me to place my trust fully in the Father. Help me to listen with humility and be ready to receive the implanted Word which is able to set me free!

In Jesus Name!

NUMBERS 13:1-3: “ADONAI spoke to Moses saying, “Send some men on your behalf to investigate the land of Canaan, which I am giving to Bnei-Yisrael. Each man you are to send will be a prince of the tribe of his fathers, a man from each tribe.” So according to the word of ADONAI, Moses sent them from the wilderness of Paran. All the men were princes of Bnei-Yisrael.” TLV

OBSERVATION: How am I looking at life? The account of the 12 spies sent out from Israel to survey the Promised Land is a great reminder of the fact that I can view life as a glass half full or as a glass half empty. And as a child of God, this is much more than a call to positive thinking. It is a call to active and tenacious faith.

Hebrews tells us,

  • “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of realities not seen. For by it the elders received commendation. By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen did not come from anything visible.” Hebrews 11:1-3 TLV

We tend to focus on the very first statement in these verses. Yet, this is not the key to an understanding of faith. The real definition is found in verse 3 – “By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God…”

This is the essence of faith, and this is the difference between whether I see this life as a glass half full, or a glass half empty. The story of the 12 spies is not about what they saw, it was about what they chose to believe. Were they going to believe the Word of God that He had given them, or were they going to believe their insecurities and fears. What was the Word of God?

  • “Send some men on your behalf to investigate the land of Canaan, which I am giving to Bnei-Yisrael. “

The Lord did not call them to investigate the land to see if it was good enough to take. Nor did He ask them to investigate the land to see if it was the land they would like to take. The Lord called them to investigate the land that He was giving to them. Or, through the eyes of faith, that He had already given to them!

Ten of the spies decided not to believe the Word of God. Only two embraced the Word of God in faith. In life we have this choice every day. We can look at life through the promises of God or we can look at it through the eyes of our own insecurities and fears. How we listen is how we will view life. Only Joshua and Caleb were listening to God, the other 10 were listening to their insecurities and fears.

  • “Then Caleb quieted the people before Moses, and said, “We should definitely go up and capture the land, for we can certainly do it!” But the men who had gone up with him said, “We cannot attack these people, because they are stronger than we.” They spread among Bnei-Yisrael a bad report about the land they had explored, saying, “The land through which we passed to explore devours its residents. All the people we saw there are men of great size! We also saw there the Nephilim. (The sons of Anak are from the Nephilim.) We seemed like grasshoppers in our eyes as well as theirs!” Numbers 13:30-33 TLV

There is something that faith and doubt have in common. They are both highly contagious! How we are affected is determined by what is driving our hearing. If I am driven by insecurity and fear, I will become infected with doubt. If I am daily abiding in the Word of God, spending time in His presence, and continuing in prayer, I will be infected with faith. And what I allow myself to be infected with will determine how I view today, tomorrow, and the rest of my life.

Am I viewing life as an adventure or as an uphill climb? Am I waiting for the next block to drop, or I am anticipating God’s next open door? Am I grumbling over what I do not have, or am I rejoicing in the blessings that I have been provided? Do I see the impossible as an opportunity to experience the power of God, or as the call to quit?

It all is determined by how I hear, see, and understand the promise of God.

Lord, open my eyes to see, give me ears to hear, pour our Your Holy Spirit anew upon my life. Today I choose to believe You! Today I choose to see life as the joyous opportunity of walking in Your grace!

Today I choose a Good Report!

In Jesus Name!

2EE384DA-6E10-4B1B-AD2B-74E6D28198A1LUKE 16:9-13: “I say to you, make friends for yourselves from the wealth of the world, so when it runs out, they will welcome you into the eternal shelters. “One who is faithful in the smallest matters is also faithful in much, and the one unjust in the smallest matters will likewise be unjust in much. So then, if you cannot be trusted with unjust wealth, who will trust you with true wealth? Now if you have not been trustworthy with what belongs to another, who will give you anything of your own? No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will stick by one and look down on the other. You cannot serve God and money.” TLV

OBSERVATION: What is my investment plan for the future? Am I storing up money in this life where moth and rust will corrupt, or am I investing in my eternal future by using the things of this life for the glory of God?

Money is not evil. It is the love of money that is evil. The love of money reveals more than mere selfishness, it reveals a misplaced devotion. As believers our devotion is to be given to God alone. So, how does a believer serve God and still become a wise steward of their money?

Early in my career I had a short stint selling life insurance. The market that I was working was the home market. We used a tool called the Financial Needs Analysis. This tool helped individuals and couples look at what they currently made, what they were currently saving, and what they wanted to have as their income when they retired. As I met with one potential client after another, my eyes were opened.

What I learned about over 90% of everyone I met with, including myself, is that they did not have a plan at all. Most people are really living their lives under the tyranny of the urgent, and are mastered by their money, or their need for money. As a young man who had just turned 30 my eyes were opened. And as a young believer, I was convicted in my heart. I needed to change some things, and right away!

As a believer I have never served money. My heart has always been given to the Lord. However, I was not being wise with my money. I did not understand the words of Jesus when He said – “…make friends for yourselves from the wealth of the world…”. The context of Jesus’ words was the parable of the unscrupulous manager who made sure he paved a way for his future when he was fired by his master. I realized that although I did not put money before the Lord, I was still being a taskmaster to it. I was not managing my money, it was managing me.

I had already embraced the importance of tithing to the Lord, giving 10% of my income as my weekly expression of worship. However, that was the extent of my money management. I realized that I needed to rearrange my entire life so that I would not serve money, but that money would serve me and assist me in fulfilling God’s call for my life, and the furtherance of the Kingdom of God. It was then and there that I determined to get my house in order.

I began to work toward becoming debt free. I continued to tithe, I also began saving 10% in addition to my tithe for my future. I also made sure that my family was taken care of through life insurance in the event of my death. And I began to be obedient to the Lord’s prompting to give offerings as the Lord would lead – above my tithe. It was not easy, but the Lord has enabled me to live debt free, and free from the control of money, since that time. The only two debts I ever carry are my house payment, and one car payment (my other cars are paid off).

Some have asked – “How can you really live like this?” What about emergencies? What about when things break down? What about the unexpected? All I can tell you is that I serve the God of the unexpected. In every situation, as I honored the Lord with my first fruits, and as I obeyed Him with my stewardship, He has provided. I had to resist my “greeds” many times and focus on my “needs.” However, this has really not been hard when compared to the freedom of walking in the joy of stewardship and financial freedom.

Since that time I have tried to share this simple principle of 10, 10, plus with many people. If you honor the Lord with your tithe (10%), if you save and invest for your future (10%), and if you are obedient to doing whatever else the Lord calls you to do (plus), He will abundantly bless you and meet all your needs according to His riches and glory in Christ Jesus.

My prayer for you is that you will enter into the joy of financial freedom. It is a wonderful thing to wake up each morning knowing that you are but a steward working for the One who created the universe and holds your future and eternity in His hands!

LUKE 14:25-27: “Now great crowds were traveling with Yeshua; and He turned and said to them, “If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his own father, mother, wife, children, brothers, and sisters—and yes, even his own life—he cannot be My disciple. Whoever does not carry his own cross and follow Me cannot be My disciple.” TLV

‭‭OBSERVATION: What does it mean to carry my own cross? These words of Jesus, taken out of the context of His teaching, seem uncharacteristic of His love and compassion. His call must have seemed strange to a culture that honored the family, and that abhorred the cross.

The family in Jewish culture was held to be sacred. The fourth commandment was one that every Jew held and treasured.

  • “Honor your father and your mother, so that your days may be long upon the land which ADONAI your God is giving you.” Exodus‬ ‭20:12‬ ‭TLV‬‬

What could Jesus have meant when He was calling them (and us) to hate our own father, mother, wife, children, brothers, and sisters – and take up our own cross?

Previously Jesus told the story of the the large banquet. The master planning the banquet sent out his slave to the guests invited, and each one of them began to make excuses why they could not come. Finally the master told the slave to go and invite all those who would normally be rejected, and to go into the highways and byways and invite all who would come, until the banquet was filled. This was the context of Jesus’ call to pick up the cross.

The key to understanding this injunction, which seems harsh, is the statement that is in the middle – “…and yes, even his own life.” The Jews were glad to listen to Jesus, to watch His miracles, to eat of the loaves and the fishes He miraculously multiplied, but they were unwilling to forsake all and follow Him. They were unwilling to count the costs of discipleship. And when Jesus mentioned the cross, which was a symbol of one cursed to a Jew, that was the last straw.

There have been many times in my life when I have faced this crossroad of counting the cost. As a young man, determined to enter the broadcasting field, I had to lay down my dream to follow God’s call to become a pastor. As a newly married man, fearing I would never have a home, I had to forfeit a deposit on a home as the Lord convicted my heart that this would become a hinderance to completing my education and following His call in my life. And, as I grew in the Lord, I had to learn how to lay down my pride, my self effort, and my impatience, among many other things, and die to myself so that Christ could live in me.

Paul knew what it was to count the cost of discipleship. Yet, when Paul compared the wonders of the benefits of the cross he joyfully counted everything else as loss.

  • “For it is we who are the circumcision, who worship by the Ruach Elohim and glory in Messiah Yeshua and have not depended on the flesh— though I myself might have confidence in the flesh also. If anyone else thinks he might depend on the flesh, I far more— circumcised the eighth day; of the nation of Israel; from the tribe of Benjamin; a Hebrew of Hebrews; in regard to the Torah, a Pharisee; as for zeal, persecuting Messiah’s community; as for Torah righteousness, found blameless. But whatever things were gain to me, these I have considered as loss for the sake of the Messiah. More than that, I consider all things to be loss in comparison to the surpassing value of the knowledge of Messiah Yeshua my Lord. Because of Him I have suffered the loss of all things; and I consider them garbage in order that I might gain Messiah and be found in Him not having my righteousness derived from Torah, but one that is through trusting in Messiah—the righteousness from God based on trust. My aim is to know Him and the power of His resurrection and the sharing of His sufferings, becoming like Him in His death— if somehow I might arrive at the resurrection from among the dead.” ‭‭Philippians‬ ‭3:3-11‬ ‭TLV‬‬

Much of what is called the Gospel today is simply an invitation to gain the whole world by adding Jesus. Yet, the true Gospel calls us to forsake the whole world to gain Jesus. This is the true essence of discipleship. It may seem harsh to some, but to those who have discovered the righteousness of God, the power of His resurrection, and the purifying of His sufferings in their life – it is a call and a cross to be cherished!

Lord, help me today to cherish Your cross, and to pick up my cross and follow You!

In Jesus Name!

LUKE 11:9-13: “So I say to you, ‘Ask, and it shall be given to you. Seek, and you shall find. Knock, and it shall be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.’ What father, if his son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? And if he asks for an egg, will he give him a scorpion? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Ruach ha-Kodesh (Holy Spirit) to those who ask Him!” TLV

OBSERVATION: Am I “praying through?” In this day of instant everything, when we get impatient when the drive through line at McDonalds takes more than 60 seconds, are we willing to persevere in prayer until we receive the answer?

Years ago, and before my time, there was a discipline in the church called “tarrying.” This was a time of waiting upon the Lord at the altar of God until there was a breakthrough. People tarried for the baptism of the Holy Spirit, for their healing, for the salvation of the lost, and so much more. And it was during this time that there was a great advance in the Kingdom of God in the church in in her mission around the world. How many missions works and agencies were born out of the saints “tarrying” we will never know.

This seems like such a strange concept today. Many have taught that tarrying is really a lack of faith. They misunderstand the teaching where Jesus said,

  • “For this reason I say to you, whatever you pray and ask, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” Mark‬ ‭11:24‬ ‭TLV‬‬

Jesus was not telling us to simply ask once and then never ask again. This would negate His teaching on persevering in prayer. If we could simply ask once, then why would He tell us to ask, and keep on asking, seek and keep on seeking, knock and keep on knocking? There are times when we ask and we see God move immediately. And there are times when we are called to tarry (persevere) in prayer until the answer comes!

There is a wonderful insight into persevering prayer in the book of Daniel. Daniel was fasting and praying for three weeks before the Lord over a vision of the future that God had given him. Then, after these 21 days an angel appeared to Daniel to both strengthen and encourage him, and to give him insight into his vision. Why was there such a delay? It was because there was a spiritual battle taking place in the heavenlies between the Archangel Michael and the spiritual prince of Persia. What would have happened if Daniel would have failed to tarry in prayer?

We might say that God would have come to Daniel anyway. God is Sovereign and He will do what he wants. However, we diminish the wonderful role that He has given us in the outworking of His grace in the world. Now, I am not claiming to understand this perfectly, and it always humbles me whenever I think about it, but God has chosen not to work alone. He has chosen to work through His saints. He has chosen to work through the prayers of His saints. Everything that takes place in this world is a partnership of the Sovereign God and those He has redeemed and chosen to proclaim His Kingdom.

When you understand this it becomes clear why the enemy of our souls wants us to be weak in prayer. Someone has wisely said – “Prayer is striking the winning blow, service is gathering up the results.” We have turned prayer into a personal get list for our own needs and purposes. Jesus did call us to pray for our daily bread, but the majority of our prayer life is to be about the Kingdom of God and its advancement. We are to pray for lost souls, for the reconciliation of the lost and broken, for the deliverance of the captives, for open doors for the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

This kind of prayer will take some good old fashioned tarrying! Could the anemic condition of the church today be its lack of tarrying at the altar of God?

Lord, teach me how to pray. Give me the grace needed to tarry (persevere) at the altar until I see Your breakthroughs and answers. May I refuse to roll up my sleeves until I have bowed my knee and raised my hands before you in prayer. Today, help me truly to pray – “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”

In Jesus Name!
