Little Children and Jesus Prayers

Prayers for The Little Children and Jesus

Prayers for The Little Children and Jesus
 People were also bringing babies to Jesus for him to place his hands on them. When the disciples saw this, they rebuked them.  But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.  Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”Luke 18:15-17
 18ﻮﻗﺎ
15 وَأَحْضَرَ بَعْضُهُمْ أَطْفَالاً أَيْضاً لِيَلْمِسَهُمْ. وَلكِنَّ التَّلاَمِيذَ لَمَّا رَأَوْهُمْ زَجَرُوهُمْ.
 16 أَمَّا يَسُوعُ فَدَعَاهُمْ إِلَيْهِ وَقَالَ: «دَعُوا الصِّغَارَ يَأْتُونَ إِلَيَّ، وَلاَ تَمْنَعُوهُمْ: لأَنَّ لِمِثْلِ هؤُلاءِ مَلَكُوتَ اللهِ !
 17 الْحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ: مَنْ لاَ يَقْبَلُ مَلَكُوتَ اللهِ كَأَنَّهُ وَلَدٌ صَغِيرٌ، فَلَنْ يَدْخُلَهُ أَبَداً!»
 18 وَسَأَلَهُ وَاحِدٌ مِنَ الرُّؤَسَاءِ قَائِلاً: «أَيُّهَا الْمُعَلِّمُ الصَّالِحُ، مَاذَا أَعْمَلُ لأَرِثَ الْحَيَاةَ الأَبَدِيَّةَ؟
 Jesus y los ninos
15 Y le traían aun a los niños muy pequeños para que los tocara, pero al ver esto los discípulos, los reprendían.
 16 Mas Jesús, llamándolos a su lado, dijo: Dejad que los niños vengan a mí, y no se lo impidáis, porque de los que son como éstos es el reino de Dios.
 17 En verdad os digo: el que no recibe el reino de Dios como un niño, no entrará en él. Lucas 18:15-17 (LBLA)

Go to Throughout The Whole World

Prayers for you to hear the voice of God today and always.  "Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed and made appointment with them.   And when they saw Him, they fell down and worshiped Him; but some doubted.   Jesus approached and, breaking the silence, said to them, All authority (all power of rule) in heaven and on earth has been given to Me.

Go then and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

Teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you, and behold, I am with you all the days (perpetually, uniformly, and on every occasion), to the [very] close and consummation of the age. Amen (so let it be)" Matthew 28:16-20 AMP.  Jesus is the Prince of Peace, and God is Love 1John 4:16

Jesus The Jewish Messiah King of Judah

Blessed is the King of Judah/ אשרי מלך יהודה
The King of Judah will return to set His Kingdom,
 Jesus is Lord of ALL/ישו הוא אדון כל
Are you prepare to meet your King, Jesus the Savior of the World? Jesus is the Prince of Peace


אגרת פולוס השליח אל-הפיליפי HHH2:9-11
  כדי שבשם ישוע יכרעו כולם ברך וישתחוו לו בשמים, בארץ ומתחת לארץ, 

על כן העלהו אלוהים למרומי השמים ונתן לו שם העולה בכבודו על כל שם אחר, 
 וכל אדם יודה שישוע הוא האדון, לכבודו של אלוהים האב

Por lo cual Dios también le exaltó hasta lo sumo, y le confirió el nombre que es sobre todo nombre, 
para que al nombre de Jesús SE DOBLE TODA RODILLA de los que están en el cielo, y en la tierra, y debajo de la tierra, y toda lengua confiese que Jesucristo es Señor, para gloria de Dios Padre.  Rlipenses 2:9-11 LBLA

Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name,  
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:9-11 NIV

Therefore, also Hashem exalted Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach, and gave to him haShem above every name,  That at haShem of Yehoshua, KOL BERECH (every knee YESHAYAH 45:23) will bow, of beings b’Shomayim and ba’Aretz and mitachat laAretz (in the world below),  And KOL LASHON (every tongue YESHAYAH 45:23) shall make hoda’ah (confession) with an Ani Ma’amin that is an open and public admission that Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach Yehoshua (Yeshua) is Adoneinu, to the kavod of Elohim Avinu. Kehillah in Philippi 2:9:11 OJB

9 لِذَلِكَ أَيْضاً رَفَّعَهُ اللهُ عَالِياً، وَأَعْطَاهُ الاِسْمَ الَّذِي يَفُوقُ كُلَّ اسْمٍ،

 10 لِكَيْ تَنْحَنِيَ سُجُوداً لاِسْمِ يَسُوعَ كُلُّ رُكْبَةٍ، سَوَاءٌ فِي السَّمَاءِ أَمْ عَلَى الأَرْضِ أَمْ تَحْتَ الأَرْضِ،
 11 وَلِكَيْ يَعْتَرِفَ كُلُّ لِسَانٍ بِأَنَّ يَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحَ هُوَ الرَّبُّ، لِمَجْدِ اللهِ الآبِ
Philippiens 2:9-11 (BDS)
9 C'est pourquoi Dieu l'a élevé à la plus haute place et il lui a donné le nom qui est au-dessus de tout nom,  10 pour qu'au nom de Jésus  tout être s'agenouille  dans les cieux, sur la terre  et jusque sous la terre, 11 et que chacun déclare: Jésus-Christ est Seigneur  à la gloire de Dieu le Père.

腓立比书 2:9-11 (CCB)

9 因此,上帝将祂升为至尊,赐给祂超乎万名之上的名,10 使一切天上的、地上的和地底下的,无不屈膝跪拜在耶稣的名下,11 无不口称耶稣基督是主,将荣耀归于父上帝。

The Fear God is the First Thing of Wisdom

Then King Darius wrote to all peoples and nations of every language throughout the whole world: ‘May you have abundant prosperity!  I make a decree, that in all my royal dominion people should tremble and fear before the God of Daniel:  For he is the living God, enduring for ever.  His kingdom shall never be destroyed, and his dominion has no end.  He delivers and rescues,  he works signs and wonders in heaven and on earth; for he has saved Daniel  from the power of the lions.’ So this Daniel prospered during the reign of Darius and the reign of Cyrus the Persian (Daniel 6:25-28 NRVS).
May the Peace of  Jesus the Savior of the World be with you. And the Love of God comfort you 1John 4:16 "God is Love"

King, Prince and God of Peace & Love Jesus

Jesus is LORD of ALL Heaven and Earth

Then I saw heaven opened, and there was a white horse! Its rider is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war.  His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems; and he has a name inscribed that no one knows but himself.   He is clothed in a robe dipped in  blood, and his name is called The Word of God.  And the armies of heaven, wearing fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses.  From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule  them with a rod of iron; he will tread the wine press of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty.   On his robe and on his thigh he has a name inscribed, ‘King of kings and Lord of lords’. (Revelation 19:11-16 NRSV)
  •  Jesus is our Prince of peace (Isaiah 9:6).
  • Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid (John 14:27).
  • Heed His commandments and your peace will be like a river (Isaiah 48:17, 18).
  • There is no peace for the wicked (Isaiah 48:22).
  • The work of doing what is right will be peace (Isaiah 32:17, 18).
  • The Lord will speak peace to His people, but let them not turn back to folly (Psalm 85:8, 10).
  • Great peace have those who love His law (Psalm 119:165).
  • You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts You (Isaiah 26:3, 4).
  • God's thoughts toward you are thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11-13).
  • God's purpose is for peace on earth and goodwill toward men (Luke 2:13, 14).
  • Let your requests be made known to God, and His peace, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds (Philippians 4:6, 7).
  • Our peace with God is through our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 5:1).
  • Jesus is our peace. Apart from Him, we do not have His peace (Ephesians 2:14, 17).

God The Covenant Keeper

Then on that day David first appointed the singing of praises to the Lord by Asaph and his kindred.
O give thanks to the Lord, call on his name, make known his deeds among the peoples.   Sing to him, sing praises to him,  tell of all his wonderful works.   Glory in his holy name;  let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.   Seek the Lord and his strength,  seek his presence continually. Remember the wonderful works he has done,  his miracles, and the judgements he uttered,   O offspring of his servant Israel children of Jacob, his chosen ones.

He is the Lord our God;  his judgements are in all the earth.   Remember his covenant for ever,  the word that he commanded for a thousand generations,  the covenant that he made with Abraham,  his sworn promise to Isaac, which he confirmed to Jacob as a statute,  to Israel as an everlasting covenant  saying, ‘To you I will give the land of Canaan  as your portion for an inheritance.’

When they were few in number,  of little account, and strangers in the land, wandering from nation to nation,
from one kingdom to another people,  he allowed no one to oppress them;  he rebuked kings on their account,   saying, ‘Do not touch my anointed ones;  do my prophets no harm.’

Sing to the Lord, all the earth.  Tell of his salvation from day to day.  Declare his glory among the nations,
his marvellous works among all the peoples.  For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised;  he is to be revered above all gods.  For all the gods of the peoples are idols,  but the Lord made the heavens.   Honour and majesty are before him;  strength and joy are in his place.

Ascribe to the Lord, O families of the peoples, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.   Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;  bring an offering, and come before him.  Worship the Lord in holy splendour;
tremble before him, all the earth.  The world is firmly established; it shall never be moved.   Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice,  and let them say among the nations, ‘The Lord is king!’   Let the sea roar, and all that fills it;  let the field exult, and everything in it.  Then shall the trees of the forest sing for joy
before the Lord, for he comes to judge the earth.  O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;  for his steadfast love endures for ever.

Say also:  ‘Save us, O God of our salvation,  and gather and rescue us from among the nations,  that we may give thanks to your holy name,  and glory in your praise.   Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,  from everlasting to everlasting.’ Then all the people said ‘Amen!’ and praised the Lord. 1Chronicles 16:7-35 NRSV

Sink Holes in Our Lives

The word of the Lord came to me, saying: Go and proclaim in the hearing of Jerusalem, Thus says the Lord: I remember the devotion of your youth, your love as a bride, how you followed me in the wilderness, in a land not sown. Israel was holy to the Lord, the first fruits of his harvest. All who ate of it were held guilty; disaster came upon them, says the Lord. Jeremiah 2:1-3 NRSV

You know the story. The man has been believer in Christ for decades. To all outward appearances he's a man of Christian faithfulness and integrity. He has maintained a reputation as a fine example of public and private faithfulness to the things of God for decades. Then, without warning, it all collapses into a sinkhole of sin. Everyone wonders how it could have happened so quickly. In most cases, it soon becomes known that—like most sinkholes—the problem didn't develop overnight.
Several years ago, this man likely had a relatively consistent devotional life through which the Lord often refreshed, strengthened, and matured him. But with each passing year, his busy life became ever busier. Increasingly he saw his devotional life more as a burden—a mere obligation sometimes—than a blessing. Because of the massive doses of Bible teaching he'd heard—in addition to the knowledge gained teaching church Bible classes himself—he began to imagine that he needed less private prayer and Bible intake than when he was younger and not as spiritually mature. Besides, he had so many other God-given responsibilities that surely God would understand that he was too busy to meet with Him every day.

If you're a strong young Christian, passionate about the things of God, and you find it impossible to imagine yourself coming to such a condition: beware. This situation could easily be yours in a few years. The words of 1 Corinthians 10:12 are an apt admonition here: "Therefore let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall...

...At the outset it's likely that very few will know when the hidden part of your spiritual life begins crumbling. Just as imperceptible movements of water underground can carry away the earth beneath long before anyone on the surface perceives it, so the pressures of life can secretly displace the soil of our private spiritual disciplines long before the impact of their absence is visible to others. The more public parts of a Christian's life, such as church involvement and various forms of ministry, can often continue with little observable change right up until the awful moment of collapse and the hypocrisy is revealed...

Jesus Our Medical Doctor at John Hopkin

Here in a hospital famed for modern medicine, a 10-and-a-half-foot marble statue of Jesus rises beneath its historic dome. Elsewhere, such a prominently featured religious symbol might be cause for controversy. But at Hopkins Hospital, "Christus Consolator" has managed to defy its traditional symbolism and garner respect from nearly all who pass.

Long a source of solace and hope for patients and families, the Christ statue also has meaning for hundreds of employees. For many it signifies healing, hope and compassion; for others, it means faith and tradition and even freedom. To a few, it is simply a work of art, or even a throw-back to a less tolerant time. Muslims, Jews, Christians, atheists-all interpret the statue in ways that feel right for them.

Claudia Costabile, an administrative assistant for Johns Hopkins International, moved here from Brazil last year. The statue doesn't seem out of place to her, she admits, perhaps because she was raised in a Catholic country. "I cannot separate the sculpture from my upbringing. When I look at it, I immediately think of my family." In Islam, says International client coordinator Omar Zidi, while Jesus has a very special place as a messenger, a key principal is to keep God in the abstract and eschew images of God or the prophets. But, he says, "It's hard to satisfy everybody. So for me, the statue serves as a reminder of my own faith."

Some like Adrian Dobs, professor of medicine and a practicing Jew, are less accepting of the statue. "I see how the statue means a great deal to our patients and their families. It engenders a sense of hope and comfort to many-something extremely important in the field of medicine," Dobs says. "But if it weren't already there, I wouldn't be in favor of erecting it again. It has an obvious religious significance, and in today's world, we need to be careful about imposing religious beliefs on others."

That's not an issue for Mikyong Hong, a patient services coordinator and interpreter for international services. Hong, who came to Hopkins a month ago from Korea, is an atheist but says the statue doesn't bother her. She points out that many religious Asians-many of whom are Buddhist-could be uncomfortable with the size and meaning of the statue and would avoid passing it. When Hong arrived at Hopkins, someone told her it was good luck to rub the statue's toe. "Now it's a habit," she says. "Every time I pass, I rub it."

Stop for a while and watch the people hurrying past the Christ statue. Not one five-minute period goes by without someone acknowledging it. Like Hong, they might rub the toe. Or, they might say a brief prayer. Some kneel in front of it. A few even high-five it. "Every time I walk by I have to touch it," says Norma Green, a transplant finance coordinator who has been at Hopkins for 37 years. "I leave all my problems there so I don't bring them to the patients.."

Founder Johns Hopkins was an ardent Quaker devoted to the establishment of a non-sectarian university, hospital and medical school. To Hopkins, "non-sectarian" meant acknowledging the power of personal faith without aligning his institutions with one particular religion. In 19th century parochial Baltimore, such a philosophy was considered heretical.

So when the University was dedicated in 1876 without so much as a benediction, many Baltimoreans considered it blasphemous. For years the rich and religious hounded the University's first president Daniel Gilman about the oversight. Finally, on Oct. 14, 1896, Gilman quelled the controversy with the stunning statue that stands at what was then the physical epicenter of the hospital, its ornate rotunda. He downplayed Jesus' religious implications; to him the statue represented the ultimate physician, the "Great Healer," who "wrought," he said, "more wonderful cures than any physician or surgeon that had ever lived."

Today, many share Gilman's take on the statue as a symbol of healing. Kate Hicks, raised Catholic, now not religious, says that when she joined Hopkins as a research data assistant in the Department of Psychiatry she heard the statue was a Greek medical figure. "I still think it's a beautiful work of art even though now I know it's Jesus, but I'd get more out of it if it were something different-maybe a human assisting another human. Something more about helping or healing than a religious figure."

For people like Nadia Sawaya, the statue represents much more. Sawaya lived through civil war in her native Lebanon, witnessing burning churches and other acts of violence fueled by religious differences. Today she is a project manager for external communications for Johns Hopkins International. "When I see the statue standing there without being torn down, it feels like freedom to me," she says. "It reminds me that in this country you can be proud of your faith, that you will be respected as a human being and a citizen no matter what you believe."

Cardiac surgeon Levi Watkins, a longtime civil rights activist, has brought everyone from Rosa Parks to Maya Angelou to see the statue. For him, it's not just a symbol of compassion and healing, but activism. "Jesus talked about feeding the poor, like some sort of ancient welfare system," he says. "The statue should remind us of our charitable mission here."

Situated in the historic Billings Administration Building, the iconic landmark is a stopping-off point for sight-seers, a starting point for Christmas carolers, and a gathering place for employees meeting for lunch. Although people from so many cultures pass through daily, very few official complaints about the statue have been recorded. No one would know better than Sandy Johnson, the employee orientation program coordinator for the Hospital and Health System who conducts weekly tours that always end at the statue. "I've been doing this seven years and I've never had a negative response from anyone. I've had everyone from Muslim to Baha'i in my tour groups. I think people just respect it as a symbol of faith, period."

For more than a century, the statue has left an indelible first impression on both patients and staff. "Every once in a while, I'll just stop and watch what's going on," says neurologist Michael A. Williams. "When you see how many people come to that statue, it tells you the value of faith and spirituality that people hold and maybe speaks louder than any spreadsheet could for enhancing our ability to give, not only through a beautiful silent statue, but through the services we provide here."

Blessed is the Nation whose God is the LORD

Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people he chose for his inheritance. Psalm 33:12

Mayor defends war memorial after group calls for removal of cross
A mayor has come to the defense of a war memorial that features religious symbols and prayers after a national group called for the cross to be removed.

“The Firefighter’s Prayer” is a 91-year-old memorial in a Rhode Island city that honors hometown soldiers who paid the ultimate sacrifice defending their country during World War I and II, MyFoxBoston.com reports.
It has stood in the parking lot of the Woonsocket fire station for decades with no complaints, until earlier this year when the Freedom from Religion Foundation called for it to be stripped of the cross, claiming it violates the First Amendment’s freedom of religion clause.  The group also wants the Woonsocket Fire Department to remove “The Firefighter’s Prayer” and a picture of an angel from its website.

“We ask that you immediately remove the cross from the Fire Station parking lot and remove the prayer and angel from the Woonsocket Fire Department website,” the foundation’s senior staff attorney, Rebecca Market, wrote in a letter to Woonsocket officials earlier this year.

But at an event Friday, Mayor Leo Fontaine reaffirmed earlier statements that the group’s request will not be met without a fight. “We will defend this monument no matter what,” he told MyFoxBoston.com. Fontaine said the monument is a symbol of the community, and the city is prepared to fight to keep the monument where it stands.

While the city is currently facing the possibility of bankruptcy, residents have rallied to raise $18,500 for a defense fund should the Freedom from Religion Foundation decide to file a lawsuit.
Fontaine has said that the city will not remove the cross, “under Mayor defends war memorial after group calls for removal of cross

God Against SIN

Sodom and Gomorrah Destroyed
That evening the two angels came to the entrance of the city of Sodom. Lot was sitting there, and when he saw them, he stood up to meet them. Then he welcomed them and bowed with his face to the ground.  “My lords,” he said, “come to my home to wash your feet, and be my guests for the night. You may then get up early in the morning and be on your way again.” “Oh no,” they replied. “We’ll just spend the night out here in the city square.”

But Lot insisted, so at last they went home with him. Lot prepared a feast for them, complete with fresh bread made without yeast, and they ate.  But before they retired for the night, all the men of Sodom, young and old, came from all over the city and surrounded the house.  They shouted to Lot, “Where are the men who came to spend the night with you? Bring them out to us so we can have sex with them!”

So Lot stepped outside to talk to them, shutting the door behind him.  “Please, my brothers,” he begged, “don’t do such a wicked thing.  Look, I have two virgin daughters. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do with them as you wish. But please, leave these men alone, for they are my guests and are under my protection.”   “Stand back!” they shouted. “This fellow came to town as an outsider, and now he’s acting like our judge! We’ll treat you far worse than those other men!” And they lunged toward Lot to break down the door.   But the two angels reached out, pulled Lot into the house, and bolted the door.  Then they blinded all the men, young and old, who were at the door of the house, so they gave up trying to get inside.

Meanwhile, the angels questioned Lot. “Do you have any other relatives here in the city?” they asked. “Get them out of this place—your sons-in-law, sons, daughters, or anyone else.  For we are about to destroy this city completely. The outcry against this place is so great it has reached the Lord, and he has sent us to destroy it.”   So Lot rushed out to tell his daughters’ fiancés, “Quick, get out of the city! The Lord is about to destroy it.” But the young men thought he was only joking.

At dawn the next morning the angels became insistent. “Hurry,” they said to Lot. “Take your wife and your two daughters who are here. Get out right now, or you will be swept away in the destruction of the city!”   When Lot still hesitated, the angels seized his hand and the hands of his wife and two daughters and rushed them to safety outside the city, for the Lord was merciful. 

When they were safely out of the city, one of the angels ordered, “Run for your lives! And don’t look back or stop anywhere in the valley! Escape to the mountains, or you will be swept away!”  “Oh no, my lord!” Lot begged.  “You have been so gracious to me and saved my life, and you have shown such great kindness. But I cannot go to the mountains. Disaster would catch up to me there, and I would soon die.  See, there is a small village nearby. Please let me go there instead; don’t you see how small it is? Then my life will be saved.”

“All right,” the angel said, “I will grant your request. I will not destroy the little village.  But hurry! Escape to it, for I can do nothing until you arrive there.” (This explains why that village was known as Zoar, which means “little place.”)   Lot reached the village just as the sun was rising over the horizon.  Then the Lord rained down fire and burning sulfur from the sky on Sodom and Gomorrah.  He utterly destroyed them, along with the other cities and villages of the plain, wiping out all the people and every bit of vegetation.  But Lot’s wife looked back as she was following behind him, and she turned into a pillar of salt.

 Abraham got up early that morning and hurried out to the place where he had stood in the Lord’s presence.  He looked out across the plain toward Sodom and Gomorrah and watched as columns of smoke rose from the cities like smoke from a furnace.   But God had listened to Abraham’s request and kept Lot safe, removing him from the disaster that engulfed the cities on the plain.

Big Mistake to Come Against The Children of God

David and Goliath
 Never pick a flight with the Children of God, this is what the Lord Almighty says:
After he has honored me and has sent me against the nations that have plundered you—for whoever touches you touches the apple of His eye   I will surely raise my hand against them so that their slaves will plunder them. Zechariah 2:8-9  
David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.(1 Samuel 17:45)

Dear children, do not let anyone lead you astray. He who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous.    He who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work.    No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born of God.  This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not a child of God; nor is anyone who does not love his brother. (1John 3:7-10 NIV)

The Armor of God
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.  Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.  For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.    Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place,  and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.   In addition to all this:
  • Take up the Shield of Faith, with which you can extinguish all the Flaming Arrows of the Evil one.  Take the Helmet of Salvation and the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.   And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.  With this in mind, be Alert and always keep on Praying for all the Lord’s people. (Ephesias 6:10-18 NIV)
