God’s Word: For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. Matthew 6:14-15

Wisdom Shared:
Prayer is the most important aspect of communication with God the Father… But without forgiveness our prayers are hindered. Beloved before you pray, be absolutely sure that you are not harboring any un-forgiveness.  There is no contemplating forgiveness God’s word clearly states:  For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.  But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. Matthew 6:14-15

Prayer & Forgiveness:

Prayer is a matter of sacrifice … a sacrifice of time; energy and duty of the faith poured out in us. Yes, in God we trust … Forgiveness is matter of God’s evidence of love in you. We must forgive quickly and pray fervently over all our hurts, all our disappointments and all our goals, desires and needs. Most importantly we must also intercede on behalf of others. And finally be ready to share the reason for the hope we have in Christ Jesus.

Jesus has given us a model prayer that gives us the ability to pray God’s word. The word of God is a powerful prayer empowering us for every good work we are called in Christ. It allows us to pray through without praying a manipulative attitudes: gossip, negativity, anger or any controlling emotions.  Our prayers should be godly centered on God’s will be done in every circumstance that is life here on earth. Thank you beloved for taking the time to intercede in prayer just as the bible states; Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. Colossians 4:2  My encouragement and prayer for today; May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Thessalonians 5:23

Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,
In Christ Love,

“This, then, is how you should pray:

“‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.
Yours is the kingdom and the power… Forever!
In Christ Name… Amen!


God’s Victory and Awesome Work: In your majesty ride forth victoriously in the cause of truth, humility and justice; let your right hand achieve awesome deedsPsalm 45:4

Wisdom Shared:
Beloved to be victoriously awesome, we need to walk in truth – God’s word is truth.  Being so lovingly merciful, walking humbly with God … showing justice.  The true key word is humility through Christ that arms us with strength.  Micah 6:8 states we are required to … To act justly and to love mercy     and to walk humbly with our God. Yes, Beloved humility before honor. The word humility does not come out much in today’s social circles.  Truthfully speaking it is a strong virtue that is evidence of God’s love in us.  The Bible states, Humility is the fear of the Lord; its wages are riches and honor and life. Proverbs 22:4 It is through our reverence and love for God the Father comes the power to display humility.
Duty & Faith:
Today’s worldly standards appear to display entitlement, this is part of the reason we have a hard time coming together as people.  It is an act of duty and faith to walk in love.  Show love, through God’s power and might in us.  Faith without deeds is useless. [James 22:20] – Love is the main ingredient in our faith.  That love comes by Jesus Christ who empowers us to do good and love one another deeply with a pure heart and clear conscience. Beloved as you move through your day… At home, at work and play … Walk in humility and love because its wages are priceless treasures, honor and life. My prayer for you today is to walk in love through humility with our God.
Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,
Jennifer Pettiford

Jehovah Nissi (The Lord My Banner)

Wisdom Shared:
As we grow in wisdom through the word it builds us up, along with
the building of our faith. Yes, the Lord is our banner… Our protector… Our Shield.
Do you ever find your self going around and around the the same issues in a
certain area of your life? I know I do, and the questions I ask; Father what am I
to gain from this? How can I be obedient to learn, grow, persevere through this
circumstance. Beloved, that opens way for God to reveal, restore and revere us
through the desire to be obedient. To be obedient is better than sacrifice beloved.
To be obedient opens up the way for God to grow us through faith, and to bless us
with the best of the land. Yes, even our enemies will be at peace with us.

Watch and Pray:
Watch and pray through your circumstance, so that the evilness of temptation will not over take
you to bring forth havoc and destruction. Be a willing because we know the spirit is willing, but the body is weak…
Be devoted to prayer, being watchful and thankful.
Because we know “The Lord is Our Banner” Our Protector… Our Shield … Our Provider!

Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,
Love in Christ,
