Continuing the rethink…

This is huge. Massive. Humungous. Monstrous Game Changer. By the way, in Regency slang, monstrous is an intensive. Example: The US has had a monstrous amount of snow.

Most recognizable prayers in the Bible:

From Psalms 23:1-6:

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

From Matthew 6:9-13:

Our Father, which art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

I used both prayers in Grace’s Possibilities (publishing in June 2014). After I added those prayers, I kept thinking about them. God finally gave me a shake. I noticed something in both of them.

Nowhere in either prayer is there a request for protection.

  1. One more to think about: The Lord tells us to put on armor and tells us what it is.

    • Excellent point.
