FAITHFUL WORSHIP FACILITATES ABUNDANCE OF GOD’S BLESSINGS – 2 Chronicles

faithful

True Christianity Entails Faithful Focus On God’s Word

Passage: 2 Chronicles

You must be willing and obey if you are to eat the good of the land. Sometimes when God puts forth a promise, it comes with a condition. It comes with you doing your part so that He can do His part. God blessed King Asa conditionally, in a bid to motivate him into good behavior. King Asa would receive God’s protection, only if found faithful. This meant he would suffer punishment if found unfaithful to God. The scriptures reported,

“Now the Spirit of God came upon Azariah the son of Oded. And he went out to meet Asa, and said to him: “Hear me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin. The Lord is with you while you are with Him. If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will forsake you” (2 Chronicles 15:1-2).

obedience

God Rewards Only Those Who Faithfully Worship Him

God cares; He is loving and will bless only those who faithfully serve him. However, since the Creator cannot revoke his righteous standard, he would be unable to bless those that are inconsistent in their relationship with him. Jehovah refuses to bless people who live in sin.

Unrepentant sinners may be at an arm’s length with God unless repented. They would also miss God’s blessings. Meanwhile, people who love God and faithfully serve him will be blessed with riches and honor. Men and women who faithfully serve God will prosper in all their ways. Their blessings will glorify God and motivate others into serving him.

Grace

Pray For Grace To Give God Your Undivided Attention

Dear God, I realize you love people who give you undivided attention. I am willing to give you my full devotion from today! I want to maintain a consistent relationship with you so that I can prosper, and so that you can be glorified. Therefore, I ask for your grace to live a holy life. Help me to meet your standard of righteousness. Please empower me through your Holy Spirit to walk in your ways so that I can prosper throughout the days of my life. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.

OFFERING PRAISES TO GOD WITHOUT RESERVATION – 1 Chronicles

praises

True Believers Praise God Unconditionally

Passage: 1 Chronicles 23

King David was known to be a good musician who composed songs and played musical instruments for the praises of God’s name. However, that was not all about David when it is related to music. He was also skilled in the supervision of manufacturing musical instruments. In fact, the king referenced his own artistic works and said;

“…Four thousand were gatekeepers, and four thousand praised the Lord with musical instruments, “which I made,” said David, “for giving praise.”” (1 Chronicles 23:5).

worship

Creativity Helps God Accepts Our Praises

Our efforts to praise and worship the living God must not be limited! Our praise and worship activities must not have boundaries. Meanwhile, our efforts would be considered insufficient, until creativity is brought into it. We are to skillfully device different means and methods of praising God since the Creator deserves our best!

No rule is applied when it turns to praises; We can dance, jump, and shout. We can sit or prostrate during praises. In fact, the Creator is interested in artistic styles of worship. He considers dances and performances pleasant.

Hence, We children of God should come out of our shells and offer quality appreciation to God. Jehovah must be praised for He is the King of kings and Lord of lords! All creations must bow before the Lord of the universe and honor his holy name forever!

Praise and worship

Pray For Grace To Always Offer God Praises

I appreciate you God for you are the Lord of lords and God of gods! I praise you with every breath that I take. Everything within me says “Thank you!” My praises shall ever come to you. I will praise you in the morning, afternoon, and evening. I will shout the praises of your name throughout the earth. All that I ask from you is grace and strength to continue praising your holy name throughout the days of my life. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make this special request. Amen.

UNITY MAKES ALL THINGS ACHIEVABLE – Ezra

unity

Christians should Come to Unity to Carry Out God’s Prophesies

Passage: Ezra 3

The exiled Jews were authorized to return home and rebuild their precious city, Jerusalem. All the released captives were excited to see their dreams come true, and they all agreed to start a project that would revamp God’s temple that the Babylonians have destroyed.

The returned Jews were very excited about their miraculous breakthrough; they repaired the Lord’s temple and praised God in one accord – to the extent that their enemies heard their testimony songs from a far distance.

The scripture reported;

“Then Jeshua with his sons and brothers, Kadmiel, with his sons, and the sons of Judah, rose as one to oversee those working on the house of God: the sons of Henadad with their sons and their brethren the Levites. When the builders laid the foundation of the temple of the Lord, the priests stood in their apparel with trumpets, and the Levites, the sons of Asaph, with cymbals, to praise the Lord, according to the ordinance of David king of Israel. And they sang responsively, praising and giving thanks to the Lord: “For He is good, For His mercy endures forever toward Israel. Then all the people shouted with a great shout, when they praised the Lord, because the foundation of the house of the Lord was laid” (Ezra 3:9-11).

Christian community

The Devil Is No Match For United Christians

Great things are done for God when Believers are united. The devil cannot withstand a group of Christians that operate in unison. However, it is unfortunate that Christians sometimes, allow Satan to manipulate them into engaging in unhealthy rivalry and division.

Different Christian sects struggle against each other and fight for superiority. However, while believers are busy engaging in ungodly rivalry, Satan continues to gain ground. The enemy is making use of the opportunity to attack the Christian community!

Christian churches must endeavor to lay aside all differences and serve God in the beauty of holiness. Believers must unite and serve God together.

There’s no doubt that miracles will happen in the Christian community when we practice love and celebrate unity. The unity of brethren will honor God, and it will also put the devil to shame. Our unity as believers will also transform to our blessings as God’s children.

Christians

Pray For The Christians To Be United

Dear God, please let your sincere love reign amongst Christians. Help us, the brethren, to allow your Holy Spirit to operate in our midst. Please help us to lay our differences aside and serve you in one accord. Please let all churches submit to Jesus’ feet and honor you in our compromised society. Empower each believer to be sensitive to Satan’s scheme and not give in to his devices. Please help us (Christians) to be your true ambassadors on earth so that we can receive your warm welcome in heaven. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.

NON-DISCRIMINATORY GOD USED CYRUS AS HIS VESSEL – Ezra

vessel

God Uses Any Vessel To Make His Cause Come To Pass

Passage: Ezra 1

God inspired a gentile king to sponsor the reconstruction of his holy temple. Despite an idolatry background that King Cyrus of Persia had, he became a vessel that God used for His own purpose.

Touched by God, King Cyrus encouraged captive Jews in his empire to return to their homeland and repair God’s temple at Jerusalem. King Cyrus also, mandated his citizens to provide material and financial support for the Jews.

The scripture reported,

“Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, so that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and also put it in writing, saying, Thus says Cyrus king of Persia: All the kingdoms of the earth the Lord God of heaven has given me. And He has commanded me to build Him a house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Who is among you of all His people? May his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem, which is in Judah, and build the house of the Lord God of Israel (He is God), which is in Jerusalem. And whoever is left in any place where he dwells, let the men of his place help him with silver and gold, with goods and livestock, besides the freewill offerings for the house of God which is in Jerusalem” (Ezra 1:1-4).

No One Is Too Big For God To Use

God has the divine ability to use anyone for the purpose of glorifying himself. (A person that God uses is known as God’s vessel.) Jehovah can use anyone to bless his children. The Creator can use both kings and servants alike to meet his agenda.

Jehovah has no restrictions; he will use any available vessel for his own purpose. Therefore, children of God should be assured in him.

Believers must be confident that God is able to fulfill all his plans for our lives. As humans, we may have some limitations but, we must always be mindful of the fact that God has no limitation. He will do whatever is necessary to meet his mandates in our lives.

Christians must be confident in God always. He is Jehovah, he will glorify himself in our lives under whatever circumstance, and he can use any vessel for the purpose.

All factors of life will cooperate with God until his plans are fully manifested in our lives.

Do you trust God? Do you believe he can do all things? Do you also believe that God can make and/or destroy anything for the purpose of glorifying himself in your life? Start to trust God today!

prayer

Ask God To Make You His Active Vessel

Dear God, I strongly believe that you have the power to do all things. There are no limitations to your power! Therefore, I ask that you give me a heart that trust you at all times. Please give me the strength to cast my complete trust in you. Let my faith bear fruits so that I can prosper in every day of my life. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my request. Amen.

Remember: God Doesn’t Discriminate; He Used A Gently King As Hs Vessel!

BAD ASSOCIATION CAN LEAD TO BAD JUDGEMENT -2 Chronicles

association

True Believers Ought To Be Cautious Of The Association They Keep

King Rehoboam had a good father, but he failed to follow his footsteps. Rehoboam, who succeeded his father King Solomon received and followed the wrong counsel of his peers. His foolishness caused him dearly. He lost credibility of his citizens and eventually lost a larger part of his kingdom to someone who had no royal blood. The scripture reported;

“…And Jeroboam and all Israel came and spoke to Rehoboam, saying, ‘Your father made our yoke heavy; now therefore, lighten the burdensome service of your father and his heavy yoke which he put on us, and we will serve you.’” (2 Chronicles 10:3-4). “So Jeroboam and all the people came to Rehoboam on the third day, as the king had directed, saying, ‘Come back to me the third day.’ Then the king answered them roughly. King Rehoboam rejected the advice of the elders, and he spoke to them according to the advice of the young men, saying, ‘My father made your yoke heavy, but I will add to it; my father chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scourges!’”(12-14). “Now when all Israel saw that the king did not listen to them, the people answered the king, saying: ‘What share have we in David? We have no inheritance in the son of Jesse. Every man to your tents, O Israel! Now see to your own house, O David!’ So all Israel departed to their tents” (2 Chronicles 10:16).

counsel

Avoid Bad Association Like A Plague

Wrong association corrupts good people; the children of God must avoid any relationship that can affect their standing with God. Ungodly people may care less about meeting God’s expectations, therefore we must not follow their footsteps. There are consequences for sinful actions, and we must ensure to not associate with those who practice evil. It is dangerous to follow bad counsels, which are mostly offered by people who have no desire for God – the ungodly people. Their counsels are likely to centralize on satisfying the desires of the flesh, which are sinful in the sight of the Lord.

God’s children are obligated to put God first in whatever they do! We are trained to prioritize obedience above our human desires! Believers must be careful to not share common practices of evil people. We must steer clear of every association that leads us away from Christ. We must follow the footsteps of Jesus Christ and ensure to uphold His principles. The Spirit of God that dwells in us will enable us to make the right decisions. Also, we can obtain godly guidance from fellow Christians – as we prayerfully consider them.

counsel

Pray To Prioritize Association Appropriately

Dear God, please give me the grace not to follow the multitude in their evil practices. Do not let me follow the wrong counsel! Please empower me through your Holy Spirit to make decisions that will benefit me and your kingdom. Let my thought and actions glorify your Holy name at all times. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.

GOD ALWAYS HEAR OUR CRY – Psalm

cry

Seek God’s Presence; Cry For His Help During Trial

Passage: Psalm 88

There might come a time when your heart is desperate, and it’s hard to simply say a quick soft prayer. You are more likely to cry out with passion. The Lord promises to hear. He is not too weak to save you or too deaf to hear your cry. He hears your cries in time of need and responds.

A psalmist found himself in trouble, and he vented his aggravation to God in prayer. He prayed;

“Lord, you are the God who saves me; day and night I cry out to you. May my prayer come before you; turn your ear to my cry. I am overwhelmed with troubles and my life draws near to death” (Psalm 88:1-3).

God Will Always Hear The Humble Cries Of His Children

Like it or not, Christians are not living in a problem-free world; stressful moments are bound to come; however, we are not without a solution. God is the solution! Therefore, we cannot afford to handle stressful situations in an ungodly manner.

No matter what temptations and challenges that might come our way, we must consult God first and let him lead us into making necessary decisions. The Creator will surely respond to our needs during distress; He will answer our prayers and help us emerge victoriously.

Pray For Assistance

Dear God, I have realized that you are the only one who has enough power to handle every difficult situation. I know you can help, and you will help me. Therefore, I ask you to give me the grace to call on you during a crisis. Teach me how to pray and help me to demonstrate faith! Let every meditation of my heart receive your favorable answer, and help me live longer to enjoy your benefits in the land of the living. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.

GOD’S JUDGEMENT IS ALWAYS BENIGN – Ezekiel

judgment

God Delivers Judgement According To Believer’s Actions On Earth

Passage: Ezekiel 18

God will judge the earth’s inhabitants via his unbiased rule. He will compel every individual to explain and account for their past sins. We shall all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for their deeds in the body, according to what he’s done, whether good or bad. God emphasized,

“The soul who sins shall die. The son shall not bear the guilt of the father, nor the father bear the guilt of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself. “But if a wicked man turns from all his sins which he has committed, keeps all my statutes, and does what is lawful and right, he shall surely live; he shall not die. None of the transgressions which he has committed shall be remembered against him; because of the righteousness which he has done, he shall live. Do I have any pleasure at all that the wicked should die?” says the Lord God, “and not that he should turn from his ways and live? “But when a righteous man turns away from his righteousness and commits iniquity, and does according to all the abominations that the wicked man does, shall he live? All the righteousness which he has done shall not be remembered; because of the unfaithfulness of which he is guilty and the sin which he has committed, because of them he shall die. “Yet you say, ‘The way of the Lord is not fair.’ Hear now, O house of Israel, is it not my way which is fair, and your ways which are not fair? When a righteous man turns away from his righteousness, commits iniquity, and dies in it, it is because of the iniquity which he has done that he dies. Again, when a wicked man turns away from the wickedness which he committed, and does what is lawful and right, he preserves himself alive” (Ezekiel 18:20-27).

reward

Our Actions Determine Our Reward

God will bring the world to justice; everyone who has ever lived on earth will face His judgment. Every single person will give an account of his/her past sins. While some people will be exonerated and be awarded heaven, others will be cast into hell fire, where they shall live in everlasting torments.

Only people who have confessed Jesus Christ as their Lord and served him well on earth will inherit God’s kingdom. Those who have backslidden from faith, and people who have refused to confess Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior will be unacceptable in heaven (Matthew 25).

Self-righteous people, and those who claim morality and good works without Christ will have no place in heaven as well.

advocate

Jesus Christ Is An Advocate For All Christians

How can anyone inherit heaven with good works, since humans have a sinful nature? How can anyone be able to successfully justify him or herself in the presence of God with the personal righteous standard? Apparently, no claim of self-righteousness would be adequate enough to measure up to God’s requirements of heaven. This is why humans need an advocate on God’s day of judgment!

Jesus Christ is the only deity who adequately fits the position. He was a sinless man who died for sinful people. God sent him to die for sinners, and he did so! He will stand for people who believe in him. God will honor whatever requests that he makes on behalf of his followers on the day of judgment.

Hence, all people should consider it a good investment to declare their faith in Jesus Christ, and serve him faithfully.

Lord Jesus

Pray For The Acceptance Of Jesus Christ

Dear God, I understand that Jesus Christ is the only deity who has the power to give anyone eternal life, so what am I waiting for? I want to immediately confess Jesus Christ as my Lord. In fact, I will do it right now! I (mention your name) Confess Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I believe he died for my sins and resurrected to give me eternal life. Therefore, I give my life to him. I will faithfully follow Jesus Christ from today, and I will serve him with all my heart throughout the days of my life. Please forgive my past sins, and write my name in the book of life. Please make me forever fit for your kingdom. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I made my faith declarations. Amen.

GOD MAKES A WAY WHERE THERE SEEMS TO BE NONE – Exodus

trust

God’s Children Must Believe In Him Always

Passage: Exodus 3

God has not forgotten his children; he has their issues fresh on his mind, and he will help them as they trust him. Some people who were hopeless in their situations in the Bible received God’s help; you will also receive yours also!

One King Pharaoh who appeared to be unfamiliar with the story of Joseph in Egypt subjected all Hebrews to slavery. He forced them to hard labor and questioned the existence of their God. The people were depressed and hopeless but God miraculously sent them his help.

God appointed Moses to console the Hebrews and also tell King Pharaoh to release the Hebrews (Israelites). Moses must tell King Pharaoh, “Let my people go!”

Moses was unwilling to do God’s errand, but the Creator got his attention miraculously through a burning bush incidence. The Bible reported,

”And God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you’”…“Thus you shall say to the children of Israel: ‘The Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is my name forever, and this is my memorial to all generations.’ Go and gather the elders of Israel together, and say to them, ‘The Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, appeared to me, saying, “I have surely visited you and seen what is done to you in Egypt; and I have said I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt to the land of the Canaanites and the Hittites and the Amorites and the Perizzites and the Hivites and the Jebusites, to a land flowing with milk and honey”’ (Exodus 3:14-17).

hebrews

You Serve A Great God; Trust Him For His Help

God knows how to solve any difficult situation for his children. He cares and he will deliver them from their troubles. Jehovah will always provide a solution where there seems to be none.

God is skilled at performing wonders to show himself strong on behalf of those who dedicate their lives to serving him. He can raise a special deliverer to free his believers from oppression, and he can tap anyone for his use. Jehovah can also use other factors that someone else has considered as irrelevant to help his children.

God has no limit, he will not only defend his children from their enemies, but he will also punish their oppressors. Hence, all people are encouraged to cast their complete trust in God and serve him well, so that they can obtain his mercy and find grace in their time of need.

As I continue to serve you, I also ask for your complete deliverance from my enemies! Silence my foes and give me an upper hand over them. Beat my enemies till their strength is exhausted! As my enemies fail in their efforts, uplift me in your mercy to enjoy your deliverance and salvation. Please give me every reason to praise your name always!

GOD HATES JEALOUSY; STAY AWAY FROM IT – Genesis

jealousy

All Christians Must Do Away With Jealousy And Live A Life Void Of It

Joseph had a special dream that God had planned to make him the leader of his father’s house. He shared his dream with his family in innocence, with the hope that everyone will applaud, accept, and help him achieve his dreams. He was wrong. His brothers became jealous and hated him. They were willing to do everything possible to stop his dream from actualizing.

Joseph’s brothers conspired to kill him but later sold him to slavery. The scriptures reported Joseph’s brothers actions,

“Now when they saw him afar off, even before he came near them, they conspired against him to kill him. Then they said to one another, “Look, this dreamer is coming! Come, therefore, let us now kill him and cast him into some pit; and we shall say, ‘Some wild beast has devoured him.’ We shall see what will become of his dreams!” … “And they sat down to eat a meal. Then they lifted their eyes and looked, and there was a company of Ishmaelites, coming from Gilead with their camels, bearing spices, balm, and myrrh, on their way to carry them down to Egypt. So Judah said to his brothers, “What profit is there if we kill our brother and conceal his blood? Come and let us sell him to the Ishmaelites, and let not our hand be upon him, for he is our brother and our flesh.” And his brothers listened. Then Midianite traders passed by; so the brothers pulled Joseph up and lifted him out of the pit, and sold him to the Ishmaelites for twenty shekels of silver. And they took Joseph to Egypt” (Genesis 37:18-20; Genesis 37:25-28).

jealousy

Jealousy Can Make Us Lose God’s Blessings

A good Christian is expected to be selfless and not be jealous of other people’s achievements. As Christians, we must be satisfied with whatever we have. We must be contented and trust that God will meet our needs. Believers must be sensitive to any element of jealousy and ensure to immediately uproot its influence before it gets out of hand. Jealousy will make a person lose sight of any effort that can benefit him, and focus on other people’s dream, wealth, and/or ambition.

Meanwhile, an act of jealousy is a sin against God (Exodus 20:17). It is, therefore, important that Christians choose to live a selfless lifestyle. Any Christian who exercises godliness and refuse to entertain jealousy will be blessed by God. The person will have more reasons to maintain his godly attitude.


Satan can manipulate anyone through jealousy and we can see this in Joseph’s story. Spend some minutes daily thinking about what you have and thank God for it. God will continue to help you!

Prayer For God’s Grace To Be Humble

Dear God, please keep me humble to appreciate your grace and goodness in my life. Do not let me be jealous of others. Don’t let me entertain selfish thoughts, or engage in an action that can negatively affect other people’s progress. Let me be an agent of positive change in people’s lives so that your name can be praised! For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.

OBEDIENCE IS A MUST FOR ALL CHRISTIANS – Genesis

HUMANS ARE REQUIRED TO OBEY GOD’S LAWS – 2 Kings

obedience

Everyone Must Be In Compliance With God’s Laws

Passage: 2 Kings 23

All people are required to obey God’s laws. Humans find this simple commandment challenging; therefore, they rationalize and look for every opportunity to evade it. Meanwhile, everyone knows that God would never ask us to do whatever is impossible. He won’t ask us to do what we are not capable of doing. God who asks us to comply with his commandment of obedience also knows we can do it. His grace is ever available for us to always meet his expectations.

God has endowed his grace on humans to have the capability of accomplishing whatever we have set out hearts to do. That is, we can meet the standard of God if we choose to do so. Some people have chosen to meet God’s expectations, and they had God’s blessings to reap for their efforts.

Let’s delve into the Bible and learn from someone who chose to disrupt the routine disobedient acts of his time. He was defiant to the sinful practices of his time and complied with God’s laws.

King Josiah in the Bible is our case study. He was a small boy and chose to do what any adult of his time wouldn’t attempt. He shunned idol worship and other disobedient activities.

Josiah was just eight years old when he became the king of Judah. He succeeded some evil kings who care less about the laws of God. Josiah stood his ground to make his people faithfully serve God and obey his commandments.

Josiah ensured the desire to faithfully serve God was a matter of national priority. In his efforts to achieve this goal, he ordered the priests to educate the citizens on God’s laws.

Josiah’s efforts paid off as he was able to successfully win the heart of his people for God. The Bible described his exploits,

“The king sent them to gather all the elders of Judah and Jerusalem to him. The king went up to the house of the Lord with all the men of Judah, and with him all the inhabitants of Jerusalem—the priests and the prophets and all the people, both small and great. And he read in their hearing all the words of the Book of the Covenant, which had been found in the house of the Lord. The king stood by a pillar and made a covenant before the Lord, to follow the Lord and to keep His commandments and His testimonies and His statutes, with all his heart and all his soul, to perform the words of this covenant that were written in this book. And all the people took a stand for the covenant” (2 Kings 23:1-3).

Obedience Means Everything to God, and He Rewards It

God rewards obedience. In fact, it could be said that a person who intends to receive the blessing of God should dare to obey his commandments. That is, people who keep the laws of God have automatically positioned themselves to receive the blessings of God.

It takes a conscious effort to obey God and faithfully serve him! To make this happen, we must study our Bible to understand what God requires.

(The Bible, which is the word of God is affordable, and can be easily possessed by everyone).

In addition, anyone who intends to fully obey God must give room for the leadership of the Holy Spirit in his life. Why? Holy Spirit empowers us to faithfully serve God. The Spirit of God gives the appropriate insight that we need to have a divine interpretation of the word of God. In short, Holy Spirit gives us everything we need to fully obey God.

It must be resonating that no one can manipulate God when the subject of obedience is discussed. A person cannot claim to obey God while he is acting otherwise. God cannot be deceived; he will appropriately reward everyone based on their sincerity.

obey godGod Searches Our Hearts and Knows Our Thoughts

God who knows all things will evaluate everyone’s activities and adequately reward us. Someone who indulges in sin should not expect to be positively rewarded. Also, the rebels – those who willingly go against the laws of God, and those who reject the salvation offer of his Son Jesus Christ will not have a portion in God’s kingdom. Unfortunately, their disobedient acts will qualify them for eternal damnation of hell fire.

People who obey God and faithfully serve him will reap the reward of their efforts in this life and in heaven. That is, God will bless his obedient children with some indescribable blessings in this life and next life.


faithfully servePray For Divine Help To Obey God

Dear God, please help me to study and comply with your laws. Help me to obey your instructions and practice the teachings of the Bible. Help me to remain faithful to you so that I can be blessed on earth and also qualify for your heavenly kingdom. Empower me by the Holy Spirit so that I can remain your true child throughout the days of my life! For in the name of Jesus Christ I have prayed. Amen!
