Praise of God, the Protector of the Just

PSALM 34: Praise of God, the Protector of the Just

I will bless the Lord at all times;
his praise shall be ever in my mouth.
Let my soul glory in the Lord
the lowly will hear me and be glad.
Glorify the Lord with me,
let us together extol his name.

I sought the Lord, and he answered me
and delivered me from all my fears.
Look to him that you may be radiant with joy.
and your faces may not blush with shame.
When the afflicted man called out, the Lord
heard, and from all his distress he saved him.
The angel of the Lord encamps
around those who fear him, and delivers them.
Taste and see how good the Lord is;
happy the man who takes refuge in him.
Fear the Lord, you his holy ones,
for nought is lacking to those who fear him.
The great grow poor and hungry;
but those who seek the Lord want for no
good thing.

Come, children, hear me;
I will teach you to fear of the Lord.
Which of you desires life,
and takes delight in prosperous days:
Keep your tongue from evil and your
lips from speaking guile;
Turn from evil, and do good;
seek peace, and follow after it.
The Lord has eyes for the just,
and ears for their cry.
The Lord confronts the evildoers,
to destroy remembrance of them from the earth.
When the just cry out, the Lord hears them,
and from all their distress he rescues them;
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted;
and  those who are rushed in spirit he saves.
Many are the troubles of the just man,
but out of them all the Lord delivers him;
He watches over all his bones;
not one of them shall be broken.
Vice slays the wicked,
and the enemies of the just pay for their guilt.
But the Lord redeems the lives of his servants;
no one incurs guilt who takes refuge in him.

SIRACH CH 35: VERSES 12-24
For he is a God of Justice,
who knows no favorites
Though not unduly partial toward the weak.
yet he hears the cry of the oppressed.
He is not deaf to the wail of the orphan,
not to the widow when she pours out her complaint;
Do not the tears that stream down her cheek
cry out against him that causes them to fall?
He who serves God willingly is hears;
his petition reaches the heavens.
The prayer of the lowly pierces the clouds;
it does not rest till it reaches its goal.
Nor will withdraw till the Most High responds,
judges justly and affirms the right.
God indeed will not delay,
and like a warrior, will not be still
Till he breaks the back of the merciless
and wreaks vengeance upon the proud;
Till he destroys the haughty root and branch,
and smashes the scepter of the wicked;
Till he requites mankind according to its deeds,
and repays men according to their thoughts
Till he defends the cause of his people,
and gladdens them by his mercy.
Welcome is his mercy in time of distress
as rain clouds in time of drought.

ST.PAUL TO 2 TIMOTHY CH 4: VERSES 6-18
Reward for Fidelity: I for my part am already being poured out like a libation ( a liquid)
The time of my dissolution is near. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. From now on a merited crown awaits me; on that Day the Lord, just  judge that he is, will award it to me-and not only to me, but to all who have looked for this appearing with eager longing.
Paul's Loneliness: Do your best to join me soon. For Demas, enamored of the present world, has left me and gone to Thessalonica, Crescens has gone to Galatia and Titus to Dalmatia. I have no one with me but Luke. Get Mark and bring him with you, for he can be of great service to me. Tychicus I have sent to Ephesus. When you come , bring the cloak I left in Troas with Carpus, and the books, especially the parchments (the scriptures)
Comfort in Trial: Alexander the copersmith did me a great deal of harm; the Lord will repay him according to his deeds. Meanwhile, you too had better be on guard, for he has strongly resisted our preaching. At the first hearing of my case in court, no one took my part. In fact everyone abandoned me. May it not be held against them! But the Lord stood by my side and gave me strength, so that through me the preaching task might be completed and all the nations might hear the gospel. That is how I was saved from the lion's jaws. The Lord will continue to rescue me from all attempts to do me harm and will bring me safe to his heavenly kingdom. To him be glory forever and ever. Amen.

ST.LUKE CH 18: VERSES 9-4
The Pharisee and the Tax Collector: He(Jesus)then spoke this parable addressed to those who believed in their own self-rightousness while holding everyone else in contempt: " Two men went up to the temple to pray; one was Pharisee, the other a tax collector. The Pharisee with head unbowed prayed in this fashion: 'I give you thanks, O God, that I am not like the rest of men-grasping, crooked, adulterous- or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week, I pay tithes on all I possess.' The other man, however, kept his distance, not even daring to raise his eyes to heaven. All he did was beat his breast and say 'O God, be merciful to me, a sinner.' Believe me, this man; meaning the tax collector; went home from the temple justified but the other did not ;meaning the Pharisee. For everyone wh exalts himself shall be humbled while he who humbles himself shall be exalted."

Note: Humble means; (Not proud of or arrogant; humble yourself in the eyes of the Lord.
He will lift you up higher and higher.

Note: Exalt means; ( To raise up; only God can exalt someone. We exalt God in saying " let your glory be all over the Earth!  Worship at His foot stool.

Prayer To The Sacred Heart of Jesus ( May you say your intention when stated, and try to pray out loud when able)


Where Are You My People ?

Where are you My People ?

I am waiting for your response.
I see you scattered among yourselves, with no solid ground.
Do you not see I am your Rock?
Do you not see I have already placed a foundation for You?
My foundation you shall stand on
My foundation will remain solid and firm.
Why do you keep choosing the grounds of softness you walk on?
Do you not know your soft grounds shall crumble?
Why do you seek out the easy way and not arise to my defense?
My way for you is pure, peaceful, and with freedom.
The narrow path you will find yourself on will become like silk.
The narrow path will be my own path of gold.
The narrow path I am laying out for you will be drawn by My Divine Hands.
You will see what is ahead of you and what you have left behind.
As the world tries to knock me down; you will see.
As the world tries to shut me out and toss me to the side;you will stand firm
As the world thinks they are moving forward without me; you will take notice.
As the world steps on the wide path way; you will see danger.
As the world falls into darkness you will not follow.
As the world turns backward in time, however believes they are going
forward you will recognize it.
You will see people who are well-dressed
You will see people who can speak well, however
you will be in question of.
Do you see me with in them?
Do you see my love in their eyes?
Do they have my courage?
Those who have closed their eyes to me; have
closed their eyes to my people!
Those who see me falling and falling have
shut their eyes in THINKING they are improving the world.
They stand firm on the battleground with my enemy.
They seem to be of beauty, grace, and wisdom
THEY DO NOT KNOW ME!
They want to change the world without me
They knock me down, mock and laugh at MY WORD.
They tear me down, and find comfort in themselves.
I AM THE WORD !
I AM THE CREATOR!
I AM THE REDEEMER OF THE WORLD!
Hold fast My People!
Stand firm on my holiness.
The narrow path I place before YOU
I  will make your path smooth , not rocky.
The rocky road is what the world is wanting to be on
The rocky road is what the world is being placed before YOU.
When my people close their eye's to me, and turn backwards;
the path will become rocky and wide.
The evil one will be certain  His path looks appealing
and inviting.
He will hide himself on the rocky road
He will open it wide for you to walk upon.
He will try to smooth it over and make things seem new.
He will hide his flames underneath the wide path.
The path you will find yourself on will seem
to be of goodness and have compassion.
He will lure you on His wide path, and allow
you to think you have accomplished something
grand.
OH MY PEOPLE! 
Nothing will be great without Me.
My narrow path will be held up by my Angels.
They will see to it that you are protected
and stay strong with Me.
My Narrow path will be Yours
to hold onto, and I will give you my wings of Strength.
I will give you My wings of Courage.
I will give you My wings of TRUTH.
The wide path that sets before you is FALSE.
The wide path that my enemy has planned for you
will consume you.
Stay away from my enemies false light.
Stay away from my enemies false compassion.
Stay away from my enemies false outer clothes
Stay away from my enemies false words.
IF THEY DON'T GIVE ME ANY RECOGNITION 
IF THEY DON'T GIVE ME HONOR
IF THEY DON'T GIVE ME PRAISE
THEY DO NOT KNOW ME !

May Our Lord Bless Our World Always, by Lori

HUMILITY: recognizes one's total dependence on God.

RADIATING CHRIST:
Dear Jesus,
Help me to spread your Fragrance wherever I go.
Flood my soul with Your Spirit and Life.
Penetrate and possess my being so utterly
That my life may only be a radiance of Yours.
Shine through me , and be so in me
That every soul I come in contact with
may feel Your Presence in my soul.
Let them look up, and see no longer me but only Jesus.
Stay with me.
and then I will begin to shine as You shine.
So to shine as to be a light to others.
The light, O Jesus, will be all from You.
None of it will be mine.
It will be You, shining on others through me.
Let me thus praise You
in the way in which You love best;
By shining on those around me.
Let me preach you without preaching.
Not by words but by example,
By the catching force,
The sympathetic influence of what I do,
The evident fullness of the love
My heart bears for You.  Amen.

" But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, then we
have fellowship with one another, and the blood of His 
Son, Jesus, cleanses us from all sin." ( 1 John Ch.1: verse 7 )

Amazing Love by Newsboy's with lyrics


St. Patrick's Breastplate Prayer ( words)

I bind unto myself today     ( Please read the message at the bottom)
The strong name of the Trinity,
By invocation of the same,
the Three in One, and One in Three.

I bind this day to me forever,
By power of faith, Christs incarnation;
His baptism in the Jordon River
His death on the Cross for my Salvation;
His bursting from the spiced tomb
His riding up the heavenly way;
His coming at the day of doom
I bind unto myself today.

I bind unto myself the power
of the great love, of the Cherubim
The sweet 'well done' in judgement hour
The service of the Seraphim,
Confessors, faith, Apostles, word,
The patriarchs, prayers, the Prophets, scrolls,
All good deeds done unto the Lord,
and purity of Virgin souls.

I bind unto myself today
The virtues of the Starlit Heaven
The Glorious Sun's life-giving ray,
The whiteness of the moon at even
The flashing of the lightning free,
The whirling wind's tempestuous shocks
The stable earth, the deep salt sea.
Around the old eternal rocks.

I bind unto myself today
The Power of  God to hold and lead
His eye to watch, His might to stay,
His ear to hearken to my need,
The wisdom of my God to teach
His hand to guide, His shield to ward
The word of God to give me speech,
His heavenly host to be my guard.

Against the demon snares of sin,
The vice that gives temptation force
The natural lusts that war within,
The hostile men that mar my course,
or few , or many, far or nigh
In every place and in all hours,
Against their fierce hostility,
I bind to me these holy powers.

Against All Satan's spells and wiles,
Against false words of heresy,
Against the knowledge that defiles,
Against the hearts idolatry,
Against the wizards evil craft
Against the death wound and the burning,
The choking wave and the poisoned shaft.
Protect me Christ, till thy returning.

Christ be with me, Christ within me
Christ behind me, Christ before me
Christ beside me, Christ to win me
Christ to comfort and restore me
Christ beneath me, Christ above me
Christ in quiet, Christ in danger,
Christ in hearts of all that love me
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger

I bind unto myself the Name
The strong Name of the Trinity
By invocation of the same,
The Three in One and One in Three
by whom all Nature hath creation

Eternal Father, Spirit, Word
Praise to the Lord of my Salvation
Salvation is of Christ the Lord. Amen

Most Holy Trinity I adore you , My God, My God In the Most Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist.

You Are Not Alone, by Donna Cori Gibson


Jesus You Are Mercy by Donna Cori Gibson


An Inspirational Prayer

AN INSPIRATIONAL PRAYER

Do not look forward to what may happen tomarrow
The same everlasting Father who cares for you today
will take care of you tomarrow, and every day.
Either He will shield you from suffering,
or he will give you unfailing strength
to bear it.
Be at peace, then. Put aside all anxious
thoughts and imaginations,
and say continually:
" The Lord is my strength and my shield.
My heart has trusted in Him 
and I am helped.
He is not only with me
but in me,
and I in Him." Amen

ISAIAH  CH 41: VERSE 10
" Fear not, for I am with you;
be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you,
I will help you,
I will uphold you
with my righteous right hand.

St. Paul to the- Galatians Ch 6: verses 14-18
May I never boast of anything but the cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ!
Through it, the world has been crucified to me and I to the world.
It means nothing whether one is circumcised or not.
All that matters is that one is created anew.
peace and mercy on all who follow this rule of life,
and on the Israel of God.
Henceforth, let no man trouble me,
for I bear the brand marks of Jesus in my body.
Brothers, may the favor of Our Lord
Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.

Jesus and His Father
On one occasion Jesus spoke thus: "Father, Lord of heaven and earth,
to you I offer praise: for what you have hidden from the learned
and the clever you have revealed to the merest children.
Father, it is true. You have graciously willed it so.  Everything
has been given over to me by my Father. No one
knows the Son but the Father, and no one
knows the Father but the Son-and anyone to whom the son wishes
to reveal him.
"Come to me, all you who are weary
and find life burdensome, and I will
refresh you. Take my yoke upon your shoulders
and learn from me, for I am gentle and
humble of heart. Your souls will find rest.
for my yoke is easy and my burden light."

The wedding at Cana
John Ch 2: verse 5  Jesus Mother, instructed those waiting on the table, "Do whatever he tells you." Blessed Mary was present at the Wedding along with the disciples.  The wine ran out, and Blessed Mary addressed this to Jesus' in saying; " They have no more wine." Jesus replied " Woman , how does this concern of yours involve me? My hour has not yet come." and that is when Blessed Mary told the servants to do What Jesus tells them. The Servants filled the six stone water jars, and Jesus ordered them to fill them with water. They did as they were told. The waiter in charge handed a cup to the brides groom. The water had turned into wine !  Jesus performed His first Miracle in request of His Mother; May we look at Her as an example, to not be afraid, and send our request to Jesus. He will gladly receive all we ask of him!  

Note; Dear One's, What are we asked from Our Lord to do in our own Life ?
When we are asked to do a task; some kind of work for Jesus, do we respond ?
Do we do Our Task for Him?
When we complete a task here on earth, will people say we did it for Christ?
Through all our distractions can we as a people complete our prayers Our task, our will for Our Lord?
May we give Love to others
Tell them "I love You"
If you encounter a person , can you in some way , let them know Jesus Loves them.
Can we tell them "May Jesus Bless You"
Maybe we can simply whisper to Jesus for them; in saying "Jesus Bless them."
you can do this privately or verbally. 
You will receive many Blessings from God.
