commit.jpg

 

As we get into the New Year 2017, let us put our trust not in the economy nor in vanity of the world but rather totally trust the Lord God. Never love vain entertainment nor the false promises of the Evil One. Put your faith in the Lord Jesus alone for your deliverance.  Acknowledge that all your prosperity is for the glory of God and it his goodness towards you that it may increase as per his holy will. The salvation that you are offered is not limited to only yourself but for everyone who calls on the name of the Lord. Now lets read the below verses:

I love the Lord, because he has heard

    my voice and my pleas for mercy.

Because he inclined his ear to me,

    therefore I will call on him as long as I live.

The snares of death encompassed me;

    the pangs of Sheol laid hold on me;

    I suffered distress and anguish.

Then I called on the name of the Lord:

    “O Lord, I pray, deliver my soul!”

Gracious is the Lord, and righteous;

    our God is merciful.

The Lord preserves the simple;

    when I was brought low, he saved me.

Return, O my soul, to your rest;

    for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.

For you have delivered my soul from death,

    my eyes from tears,

    my feet from stumbling;

I will walk before the Lord

    in the land of the living. (Psalm 116:1-9)

Now for the prayer points for the year 2017, pray each of them as many times as you wish till you feel it coming from your heart. Pray for yourself and pray for others especially your family. Pray for your state or nation and for the whole world. But as you ask, have gratitude towards the Lord God for sending his only begotten son Jesus on earth to obtain salvation for you by his crucifixion, death and triumphant resurrection. All your prayers in Christ Jesus are to be done in faith, humility and hope. Desire the glory of God as you pray. Remember him as the Savior of the World. Put in your heart and mind that the Lord God can save all those who call on his name in faith. With all this said, here are the prayer points that you can pray for the year 2017:

Praying against mass shootings

We are to pray against mass shootings that occur time and again in the United States. I’m not sure about Canada but if it happens to there then let’s pray about that too. In fact pray for any other place where such crimes occur.The frequency and suddenness of such killings make the attacks dangerous. I find it odd that most of the time the shooter’s end up killing themselves. This makes it difficult to deduce why the killer acted that way. Usually federal forces go to through their profile online or at college/work but keep quiet about it for many years. This doesn’t help the general public. What’s even more weird is that the police arrive only after most people have killed which means shame on the police. And then we have the anguish that the families of the deceased victims have to go through. It’s a huge loss for them. I hate it when anyone is killed that way or any way.

Now there people who are of the foolish opinion that everyone in the U.S is a murderer. Why, because they are trying to ban guns and other firearms in the hands of innocent citizens. If anyone were to call you a murderer every time you would take them to court for defamation, wouldn’t you? There is not a word about disarming thugs, serial killers and gangsters. These anti gun lobby will twist every scripture verse in the Bible to advocate gun control. Excuse me but the last time I checked the Holy Scriptures are to build your faith in Jesus Christ and not for political tricks. The Bible doesn’t say to the church to give up weapons but rather emphasises on peace. If the Bible says to give up self defense then we must not keep church security guards, stop having medicines, remove the walls around church right? Now, if weapons kill, then spoons make kids fat, and cars dive into people right? What is true is that the person behind the gun is the killer and not the gun. People have a stronger chance against such attackers if they are with weapons themselves.

I dislike people who have tremendous sympathy for mass murderers but won’t feel anything for the victim’s and their families. These are the real hypocrite’s in the world. All those who get a kick out of murderous snuff movies must be named and brought to justice.

It’s shameless to see a news report about mass shootings and ignore it. Your ignorance won’t help anyone. Start praying for the victim’s the moment you know of the situation and don’t wait till your preacher tells you to. Seriously does any one wait for their preacher to tell them when to have tea?

Do not say what is the use now that even if the killer’s are brought to justice it won’t bring back the dead. This just one of things that serial killers like so that they can continue their crimes.

Prevention is better than cure! I always believe in prevention of crimes rather that wait for evil to happen and then keep feeling bad. You need to stop this work of devil. Demons work in various ways which are unseen but they provoke potential murderers. Even Judas who betrayed Our Lord Jesus was tempted by the Devil. So aren’t so many murderer’s not tempted by evil spirits. I mean stop the temptation and you stop the crime. How do we do this? We reduce this temptation and then remove it. Cast out all demons of violence in the name of Jesus. Pray the blood of Jesus over all problem areas. Shut the doors on demonic influence. Declare safety from all such murderers in the name of Jesus.

Pray for school children and pray for those at college in that they all be safe and secure. Pray for those who are planning out mass murders. That those who have deadly revenge in their minds receive calmness and act in a forgiving manner. This may seem impossible for man but is possible with God. Pray that the Holy Spirit works through preachers who lead their congregation’s to pray against such shooting incidents in their region. Pray that the angels of God suppress demons of murder, racism and hate in the United States from doing their vile deeds through people. Also pray that the police start arriving on time to prevent murders. Finally pray that citizens are not cheated of their right to self defence be it by weapons or open hands.
