Save me O Lord from all evil dreams

Save me O Lord from all evil dreams,
Silence down all the nasty screams.
By your name O Lord Jesus, my nightmares I banish,
And I’ll keep doing it till they all vanish.

Save me O Lord from all lying dreams,
Keep me safe from Satan’s wicked schemes.
By your victory O Lord Jesus I claim my right,
To have peaceful sleep, be it day or night.

Save me O Lord from all tempting dreams,
Pull me out of the bewitching streams.
By your Divine Word I choose to abide,
So keep me safe from every side.

Save me O Lord from all profane dreams,
Let your Holy Angels trounce the insidious teams.
By your perfect love O God which I hold so dear,
From my rest let it cast out all fear.

O Lord keep me away from danger

O Lord keep me away from danger,
From things familiar and stranger.
Keep me O Christ from traps hidden,
And the paths where darkness had ridden.

Turn me away from crookedness,
Let me not delight in wickedness.
Make me not desire timid silence,
Nor let me cherish sinister violence.

Cause me O Lord Jesus to be secure,
And also keep my gaze pure.
Let me not be enticed,
By those you have despised.

By your Holy Spirit cause me to have favour,
In the eyes of others when I rest or labour.
That all creatures benign or deadly,
Refrain from harming me, readily.

Let me be hidden from witchcraft’s eyes,
And from evil spirit’s especially one’s in disguise.
Keep me O Lord always in your grace,
That in your presence I find my place.

Deliver me O Lord Jesus

Deliver me O Lord Jesus for sure,
That from the world I remain pure.
For in your name all sins and demons I reject,
While your Gospel and Cross I embrace and accept.

Give me your salvation and healing,
And take from each ill feeling.
Save me O Christ from the terror of the night,
And all vile things causing fright.

Send forth your angels holy and wise,
To protect me from evil which I despise.
Save me O Lord from all lying voices,
For in you my soul rejoices.

When I rest let me be safe and secure,
That I awaken to praise you for sure.
By your name Jesus, I rebuke my curses all,
Let none of them against me stand tall.

I pray that all evil plans and divination against me get caught,
And also that every spell directed towards me be brought to nought.
Cause O Lord Jesus that my accusers are made to be in silence,
And by God’s Spirit I be saved from all violence.

God’s angels fight against the darkness

God’s angels fight against the darkness,
Fearing not what comes by.
They are secure in his mighty name,
Seeking his glory, not their fame.

God’s angels fight against the darkness,
Knowing they will prevail.
They stand for Christ all bold,
Seeking his Gospel to be told.

God’s angels fight against the darkness,
Desiring holiness, truth and justice.
They shout God’s praises in eternity,
Seeking his victory with certainty.

God’s angels fight against the darkness,
Praying only to the Lord above.
They guard God’s innocent in trouble,
Seeking their deliverance on the double.

 

Save My People, O Lord

Save my people, O Lord I pray,
That they into sin not stray.
Save my people, O Lord I pray,
That they walk the right way.

Save my people, O Lord I ask,
That they don’t go into Hell’s cask.
Save my people, O Lord I ask,
That they expose the Devil’s mask.

Save my people, O Lord I desire,
Let them walk in Christ, not mire.
Save my people, O Lord I desire,
Let them avoid the Lake of fire.

Avoiding Spiritual Gray Zones

In your walk with Christ sometimes you got be aware of spiritual gray zones. These are areas in which it’s not clear if something is wicked or innocent. It can also be areas where a teaching is not confirmed to be consistent with the Gospel and the character of God. At such an instance its useful to know what a ‘Gray zone’ means.

Meaning of Gray zone: (Noun) An intermediate area between two opposing positions; a situation, subject, etc., not clearly or easily defined, or not covered by an existing category or set of rules. (Oxford Dictionary)

One might wonder that what is so dangerous about spiritual gray zones. Due to highly ambiguous nature of these things its better to give out a few examples. Here we go:

  1. Mr A, is a Christian guy who wants to do great things for the Lord God. He wants to perform miracles of healing so as to help the sick and dying. Now even after years of going to church, going to Bible studies and having five hours of daily prayer and also, fasting twice a week, he is unable to heal anyone. Suddenly Mr A, gets to know of a secret group that claims to be Christian and say they can teach anyone to heal within 3 days. However their condition is that he donates a very large sum of money to an offshore bank account of  theirs and also sign a no refund clause. Further more, they want him to not discuss with anyone in his local church about this. He thinks whether to do a little ‘sacrifice for the greater good’ or if its wrong to not speak to his church people and leaders about this. He gets a call from an unknown number asking him to ‘not delay his conversion from day-to-day but rather donate in the next 2 minutes or his time of ‘grace’ will depart from him forever’. Mr A is now totally confused since he never took down his preachers phone number.
  2. Miss J, is egged on by her  friends to marry a man who is given to womanizing and drug abuse. They claim the only way for this man’s soul to be saved is by Miss J marrying him and using her influence as a wife to preach the Gospel to him. Miss  J doesn’t like that idea. But her friends tell her that all preachers tried to bring a change in that sleazy man but nothing happened and say that only genuine love will convince that man to accept the Gospel. She is not aware that her friends are promised a fortune by this impious man who knows that by his character itself, he won’t be able to convince her to marry him. Miss J is scared of using marriage as front to preach the Gospel or to let this man’s soul slip into hell forever.
  3. Preacher Z, is approached by people of another church. They say they got a gold bracelet with the name of their church on it. And they promise to send him a generous tithe each month as long he wears the gold bracelet on his right hand. Now preacher Z is in need of some serious funding for his new missionary project in Namibia. He ponders that if it’s all a matter of wearing a gold bracelet without any change in what he preaches, then what could possibly go wrong.

Let me explain the dangers of each of the above examples. In the first example, Mr A stands likely to be scammed big time if he donates a big sum of money abroad. And if he later contacts law enforcement or legal resources there is very little scope to get his money back. Also if he were to hide things from his preacher, then when he gets scammed, even the preacher and the church to which he belongs will be surprised at his lack of vigilance and eventually this can affect his reputation.

For the second example, if Miss J were to marry the womanizer, there is no guarantee he will ever accept the Gospel. Besides, when he eventually will cheat on her, none of those scheming friends of hers will help. And if she approaches her church they will offer prayers and sympathies but will find it difficult to mend their marriage.

And for the third example, if Preacher Z takes the gold bracelet, it can bring disgrace and controversy to his church and denomination at large. This holds true especially if the other church that gave the bracelet of gold, turns out to be a cult or a heretical organisation. People can and will think of him endorsing their false doctrines.

In cases of spiritual gray zone’s here’s what you can do:

  1. Do not act on your impulses but think what could be the long-term consequences. Also think how would you deal with those consequences.
  2. Do not be over secretive that you don’t take counsel from the right person of God as want to hide things from him or her.
  3. Do read the Bible on a regular basis. Read the various parts of it pertaining to wisdom and discernment, instead of only going for your favourite verses. This should help you remember the counsel of the Bible if in case there is a very quick decision to make or you don’t have access to a faithful and wise preacher of the Gospel. Reading the Bible regularly needs discipline and setting the right priorities to use your time, though.
  4. If it’s too good to be real, do not had over money nor time nor your emotions etc to such things or people. Instead research it. If you cannot research it, then like I said earlier don’t be too shy to get counsel from the wise people of God available to you.
  5. Pray about it for clarity from God. This is where you ask God to deliver from all lies because he the God of truth and not chaos.

Just to let you know, I too faced a very dangerous spiritual gray zone around 2009-2010. I would preach and minister to a growing group of teenagers and those in their early twenties. Some prefer to call them youth or young adults. The point is these youngsters had problems of the spiritual sort; false gods, drinking, smoking, false relationships etc. So myself and some of my contemporaries were given leadership over them. And due to various reasons these youth were comfortable to reach to us for their problems and we would help to come out of their bad habits. We would intercede for them, fast for them and when they are with, lead them in praise and worship of Jesus. This caused lots of lots of youth who at time wouldn’t come to church to come to us instead. It was a nice opportunity for myself to slowly and steadily get them attend church without any forcing.

However, this didn’t sit well in due course of time with the main Christian circle I was in. They accused us of ‘meeting the needs of the youth so that they don’t come to the main body’.  They asked to ‘stop preaching the Gospel since that is what fulfills the needs of the youth and this will cause them to reach out to the main body’. It took me a day or two to come to a decision after praying and my reply to them was “Why do you want me to not follow the commandment of God?” So they asked what commandment and I replied “The great commission to preach the Gospel”. Followed by “Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel! (1 Corinthians 9:16)” They were horrified at my reply and asked me will I reconsider and follow their ‘authority’ in this matter and only do praise and worship with the youth. Remembering some of the youth, who said that the main body was not that effective in counseling them, I said no to the main body and that’s the last they interacted with me. Later I found that almost all the youth never ‘integrated’ in to the main body consisting of married adults. My point is, I had to make a decision to follow God’s commandment or the opinions of man, even if that is of the elders when it was all a gray area to me.

Christ be with you, as you overcome the gray areas of your life!

 

If you are intimate with God then you won’t be fearful of any man

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. (Psalm 23:4)

The LORD is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me? (Psalm 118:6)

Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have; for he has said, “I will never fail you nor forsake you.” Hence we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid; what can man do to me?” (Hebrews 13:5-6)

Preach to the lost if you love the Lord God

Most of the world knows the terms ‘Merry Christmas’ and ‘Christmas shopping’. But what it doesn’t know clearly is the Gospel of Jesus Christ! By world I mean those who are not in the Lord.

As you love the Lord God it’s a good and wholesome thought and action to let others know of the salvation of the Lord. You might have to actually preach the Gospel more in words than action. Because some people don’t understand the meaning of actions unless you tell them. The devil has tricked them into not being able to connect the dots by observing good behaviour alone. The greatest good that a Christian can do for another person is to lead him or her to Jesus Christ by preaching the Gospel to them. This is the good that benefits them in the after life if they receive and hold onto this life. 

There are lost who need healing. Preach to them and pray for them. You can also get them to church so that the preacher and church elders can pray over them. There are the lost who need deliverance from evil. Don’t be scared to declare the victory of Jesus on the cross to them. There are lost who are broken. Speak to them of Christ who cares for you. 

He says, “You will do more than restore the people of Israel to me. I will make you a light to the Gentiles, and you will bring my salvation to the ends of the earth.” (Isaiah 49:6)

Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. And when they saw him they worshiped him; but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age.” (Matthew 28:16-20)

Therefore let it be known to you that this salvation of God has been sent to the Gentiles; they will listen. (Acts 28:28)
