Transgression: 1 John: Prayers and Poetry


                Lies, hatred, revenge

                condemnation, all only a
                few sins that can daily

                become unrighteousness

                pulling away from clarity

                and honesty into resentment

                to others forgetting we

                too commit these choices

                ourselves when we turn from 

                God's will and grace and mercy

                yet He will protect us

                from evil when we remember

                Love given by His death offers healing.

Psalm 107: 28: "Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, And He brought them out of their distresses."

Unrighteousness: 1 John: Prayers and Poetry

Reading: 1st John 5:16-18: "If anyone sees his brother committing a sin not leading to death, he shall ask  and God will for him give life to those who commit sin not leading to death. There is a sin leading to death; I do not say that he should make request for this. All unrighteousness is sin, and there is a sin not leading to death. We know that no one who is born of God sins; but He who was born of God keeps him and the evil one does not touch him."


Lord, we each desperately need Your guidance and mercy. We need forgiveness daily as we too often sin without even recognizing the transgressions we allow.

Please teach us clarity and honesty within us and remind us when we forget, or do not see.

Keep us from the lies to ourselves and to others. Remove our hatred and condemnations toward others. And all any other wrong actions and attitudes that we still carry within us.

We ask for Your healing--daily.

Eternal: 1 John: Prayers and Poetry


                Gift of light and 
                love a daily commitment
                He gives each one who
                accepts this blessing
                of eternal life to begin
                at the moment of belief.

                Never taken away or
                ignored or broken from
                Holy grace, Spirit present
                no matter how weak
                our trust or understanding
                eternal life and light provision.

Commitment: 1 John: Prayers and Poetry

Reading: 1st John 5:10-12: "The one who believes in the Son of God has the witness in himself; the one who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed in the witness that God has borne concerning His Son. And the witness is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life."


Lord,Your amazing gift of love eternal and life with You is such a powerful truth to comprehend. Especially in our many choices to not follow You with or without understanding.

Yet though we are still so far away to understand Your mercy we can hold to You Spirit as we learn. Following fully. Your Grace.

You do not let us go. So we can learn to walk step by step in trust and courage.

Please keep us in Your light and wisdom and be able to share this witness with others.

Your light one step at a time. Into eternity.

Assurance: 1 John: Prayers and Poetry


                Words, opportunities
                new information
                and discoveries always on
                interest and all curiosity. 

                Words, of directions
                bearing honest truth or
                sometimes hidden
                with lies to stumble us.

                Words from the Spirit's
                confirmation gives honesty
                and protection so we
                can step into blessed witness.

Psalm 107:25: "For He spoke and raised up a stormy wind, Which lived up the waves of the sea."

Truth: 1 John: Prayers and Poetry

Reading: 1st John 5-7: "And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is the truth. For there are three that bear witness, the Spirit and the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement. If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater; for the witness of God is this that He has borne witness concerning His Son."


Thank-you Holy Spirit for continuing to guide us into truth, especially when there is so much falseness among us--including ourselves.

Please keep us listening and obeying Your words and directions only.

May anything else dissolve.

May we only see Your glimpses as You lead and follow in trust.

Your purpose only.

Faith: 1 John: Prayers and Poetry


                On the surface victory
                may not be seen when
                chaos and difficulties rule.

                Only when we can remember
                He has overcome the world
                and covers each one of us with mercy.

                Ongoing grave His foundation
                given by  costly love
                holding us forever.

Psalm 107:24: "They have seen the works of the Lord, And His wonders in the deep."
