Today’s Prayer (12/22/2021)

Oh Lord, I pray that we will begin to seek You with our whole hearts. There are so many things in the Bible that You wish to show us, but because people find their desires in other things, Your wisdom is kept from their knowledge. These same people have not come to know You yet for salvation, even though most will claim to. It is Your word that is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. Because I read the Bible daily, my desire to pray is increased. Because I study out each chapter in the Bible, my desire to follow You is increased. Because I write on the chapters I read, I listen to the still small voice of the Holy Spirit and obey. You are everything to me, God. I want less of me and more of You in my life. Give me more and more wisdom, like You did for Solomon. I don’t need the riches in this world to be happy, but Your redeeming blood. Thank You for coming into this world, Jesus, and saving a wretch like me. I was lost, but then You found me. I love You, God. Amen.

Genesis 49:8-10

Genesis 49:8-10 (KJV)
8 Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father’s children shall bow down before thee.
9 Judah is a lion’s whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?
10 The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.
