    Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? And they fell upon their faces, and said, O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh, shall one man sin, and wilt thou be wroth with all the congregation? O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come. My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever. And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me? Be silent, O all flesh, before the LORD: for he is raised up out of his holy habitation. These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me for they are thine. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition that the scripture might be fulfilled. And all flesh shall see the salvation of God. And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

    Psalm 3 is one of my weekly prayers . I feel the Lord protects me from my enemies. I turn to this saving grace especially when people I have loved and cared for even given up something to help them and yet they speak ill of me , and when I am in great need they turn their backs and laugh at me . When I see this I ask Jesus to keep them away from me and he does so wonderfully well. Praise God Amen

    Praise the lord, I give all the prayers and thanks to my Lord Jesus for his mercy and his shield of protection over my family and me for all the years. Jesus Christ have a big arm , so huge no tape measures...to measuring his power. He's the father. He's the son and his the Holy Spirit. JESUS is the father,Jesus is the son , Jesus is the Holy Spirit. Amen.

    I have read books on the Cross, when I was younger; but now I see, it's really something you have to experience to know! Just now we are appointed by God to walk in this fellowship with Jesus; to bear with the evil treatment and evil minds of ungodly men, because of Jesus' name;so to learn to despise the shame like Jesus did,and to endure with faith, joy and meekness. Sometimes I feel very alone.
