    I am now 70 years old. I have a lot of memories of times past. I have kept a prayer journal in my somputer since 2000. In this journal are a lot of photos of places my wife and I have been-and things we have done.
    This past year I have physically changed and I am unable to do that which I use to.
    The scripture is very clear in the above with change. "Contentment-with Godliness"...!!

    I need help from the Almighty God. In my trouble I call unto the Lord for that is where my help comes from. Hear me Oh Lord for I am in trouble. I looked to the right but there is no one, I looked to the left but there was no one. I looked to you for you are my strength and my refuge. Thank you Lord Jesus

    Heavenly Father Jehovah, search my heart and remove whatever is not pleasing to you. Show me my faults so I can be the servant you want me to be.
    Father you are worthy to be praised. Let the Church say Amen.

    "..To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; to bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; to execute upon them the judgment written: this honor have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD." THE JOY OF THE LORD IS OUR STRENGTH! Whatsoever we bind on earth, shall be bound in heaven; and whatever we loose on earth, shall be loosed in heaven.
  • Stephen Cottonham
    I give all honor to The Most High............I think Psalms 138 is truly a Godsend, and speaks what we feel in our hearts and prayer life.

    Verse 9 shows that Jehovah God has tender affection and deep feelings for those who are disadvantaged such as foreign residents, orphans, and widows.
