Yokes: 1 John: Prayers and Poetry


                Too often we cringe 
                at the needs around us
                too busy, or too uncomfortable so
                allow excuses to turn away.

                Yet He never walks
                away from us no matter the
                yoke but offers kindness, words, deeds,
                and always stands in prayer.

                Today one of His beloved needs hope.

Psalm 107:13: "Then they  cried out to the Lord in their trouble; He saved them out of their distress."

Necessitate: 1 John: Prayers and Poetry

Reading: 1st John 3:16-18: We know love by this, that He laid done His life for us; and we ought to lay done our lives for the brethren. But who so ever has the world's goods, and beholds his brother in need and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him? Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth.


No matter the depth of lost.

No matter the depth of brokenness.

No matter the depth of cruelty.

He will heal, can heal, the seemingly impossible.

He will forgive, will restore, will open a new life.

He gave His life to save each one.

Thank you, Lord, for Your ongoing love to each one of us no matter how deeply we have wandered into darkness. In all situations that we fall into.

Thank you for Your kindness and mercy and love and healing and truth waiting to bring Your love into our hearts moment by moment.

Mercy: 1 John: Prayers and Poetry


                Pieces of rejection and
                misuse can speak
                into our hearts and thoughts
                pushing lies into hatred.

                Too often we forget
                the gift of resurrection mercy and
                protection within His grace can
                turn into healing souls.

                Power of redemption

                Power of calvary's cost

                Power of restoration

Psalm 107:12: "Therefore He humbled their heart with labor; They stumbled and there was none to help."

Loyal: 1 John: Prayers and Poetry


                His love on solid ground 

                always ready--never empty

                yet too many lies within

                our thoughts or actions

                by others built barriers

                against trust and hope

                pulling us away except

                He stands firm to love us,

                lives within us, loyal forever.

                His Eternal solid ground.

Psalm 107:18: "Their soul abhorred all kinds of food; And they grew near to the gates of death."

Hatred: 1 John: Prayers and Poetry

Reading: 1st John 3:13-15: "Do not marvel, brethren, if the world hates you. We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love abides in death. Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer; and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him." 


Thank-you, Lord, for Your gift of life that prepares us into Your truth and Your kingdom.

Through Your mercy please continue to remove any sins of hatred within us that still linger. Inward to ourselves or outward to others.

Through Your heart and words show us how to recognize another who is caught in contempt. And share Your gifts of healing and salvation to break their pain into restoration.

Thank-you for Your gifts of prayers that You will guide us into our new life. And that all our prayers will then teach us to follow Your light always.

Discern: 1 John: Prayers and Poetry


                Truth over  lies

                righteousness over deceit

                honesty over manipulation

                is an ongoing battleground

                to keep alert and go

                deeper into actions

                to discern honesty

                and hear words of truth 

                then can recognize His message

                Truth over lies.

Psalm 107:11: "Because they had rebelled against the words of God, And spurned the counsel of the Most High."
