Today’s Prayer (04/18/2021)

Oh Lord, I love You and cherish the moments I have with You in prayer. You are alive and active in my life and in others. Your presence is so amazing and I am in awestruck just to be with You. I worship You, God. I wish that all the world could know You, the only one true God in the heavens and earth. How other gods, except for You, Father, is a false god. I am speaking of You also Jesus, whom the Father also dwells. You are my God, as much as the Father and the Spirit are also. Truly, the Bible teaches that in the Holy Trinity, there is God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit, who are three person’s in one God. I believe what Your Word says. I will not add or take away from what has been spoken of in 1 John 5, verses 7, which reads, “for there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.” (1 John 5:7) Amen and amen. I don’t fully understand everything about You, God, but I know that You, Jesus, is the only way to heaven. There are many counterfeits out there, but I must follow You, Lord, to find true happiness and joy in this life and the next. Thank You for keeping me on Your holy and righteous path and not allowing me to believe in any other false gods. I was once a part of the Mormon church and also believed that I would become my own god when I die, but I am so happy that I am now out of that false religion. Only You are my God. I wish people would stop their false teachings, but I know this cannot happen. So I just pray that more people will come out of what is false and to You alone, Jesus. I love You. Amen.
