Prayer for Loneliness

Dear Lord, I feel all alone. It seems like no one cares about me. Who can I talk to ? who will really listen to me without going and gossiping about what I have said? Who can I trust? Can I trust You? Will you help me if I ask? I know that your Word says that you care. Maybe I should read in the book of Psalms. David had alot of troubles. It says, " The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want, He makes me to lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside the still waters, He restores my soul, he leads 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 you are with me, your rod and your staff they comfort me, You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies, You anoint my head with oil, My cup runs over, surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the House of the Lord forever." That is how you feel about me. your love must be very great. Thankyou for listening and Loving me!!


The best teachings on modesty that I have heard are by Nancy Lee Demoss at and some books written by United Pentecostal ladies which would be available at Pentecostal Publishing House. They have done a great job so I will not touch the subject at this time.

Chocolate chip cookies

Why not add a variation to your favorite Chocolate Chip cookie recipe, by adding a variety of chips instead of just chocolate. . . like butterscotch, milk chocolate, peanut butter or white chocolate chips.

Great Fudge

The easiest fudge I have ever made was from a recipe on a jar of marshmallow creme bought at Aldi. Everyone gives me compliments for it.

A prayer to Receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit

Dear Lord , I have read in your Word that people receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. I know that people in my city have received this. Since others have, then I want this to happen to me. I am asking you to give me the Baptism of the Spirit and I know that I will speak in a language you will give me, so I give you my tongue so I can praise you the way you want me to. In Jesus name. (some people have received this infilling of the Spirit when they are alone, but most often it was when they were with a group of believers who were also worshipping and praising the Lord. I would encourage you to find a Spirit filled friend to help you or find an apostolic church which preaches holiness, the Baptism of the Spirit and Baptism in water in Jesus Name, or Email me. I will help you all I can My email is

A Prayer of repentence

Dear Lord, I come to you to ask you to forgive my sins. You died on the cross for me so I could have my sins forgiven. I thank you for that and I thank you for forgiving me. I want you to be my Lord. In Jesus name amen

A Prayer of Praise

dear Lord, I just want to praise you for all your goodness and how good you have been to me. My life has not been perfect Lord but yet there are so many things to be thankful Lord. I am not always feeling good, but I thank you for the good times when I can truly enjoy life to its fulness. I thank you for taking me safely through the hard times. I thank you for your love which is always there and that you exist and you never change. In Jesus name Amen

A Prayer for Depression

Dear Lord, Today is just not my day. I am not happy and I can't pretend to be. Everybody expects me to be a certain way and I can't perform today. I want to hide from people today Lord. Can you help me? Do you really love me? Today I feel like nobody loves me! Yet I know it says in the Bible that God so loved the world - that would include me. Help me believe it and please give me joy today. Thankyou Lord!

poem: Triumph

Deep inside a storm is raging
Threatening some evil gusts
Of doubt , despair and painful anguish
Floods of raw deceiving lies.

Get back, you liars of darkness
Spirits of the awful deep
You have no right, No claim upon me
I shall not your temple be.

Christ the Lord has fought the battle
"It is Finished" were His words
when on the cross He hung and suffered
Bearing all my misery.

Hope arises deep within me
Glimpsing in Jesus the ray of light
To guide me safely out of darkness
Out of the storm and out of the night.

poem: His Handiwork

The stars in the Heavens
shine forth in the Night
They're part of creation
twinkling clear and bright

I love to behold them
Each night 'fore I sleep
And think about Jesus
Whose Love we shall Keep

God sure is creative
in His imaginative way
He knew what we needed
By His side we shall stay

He loves this His handiwork
The world he has made
But, He loves us His people
And for our sins has paid.

poem: JOY

In your presence, Lord I find
Happiness, joy, peace of mind
Following the way you lead
Help me, Father, this I plead
Not my will, but thine be done
Glorifying your dear Son

Camping in your ray of light
Ever brings me sheer delight
When the road gets rough I know
Special grace He will bestow
Planted in this heart of mine
Is joy, that makes me feel just fine.

poem: It's hard, Lord

At times it seems we travel on
A road that's much too rough
At times it seems the way too steep
The path too hard and tough

And more than that there's hail and wind
There's sleet and rain and snow
How can we stand against the gail
When tempests start to blow?

Then we must look to Jesus
And read His Word each day
So He can help us understand
Just why it is this way.

Oft' times we need the discipline
God's loving hand imparts
To set us on the path of life
We followed at the start

There's other times He wants to teach
Us patience, love, and care
So, when there's someone else in need
His comfort we can share.

poem: Enduring Joy

The fig trees didn't bloom this year
The grape vines bore no fruit
The labor of the olives failed
The seed crops did not root

No bleating of the sheep is heard
No baby lambs were born
The cattle stalls are empty
The manger looks forlorn

Yet, still, my Father I rejoice
In Thee, my special Friend
For this I know, my Joy in You
Will go on without end

The Lord my God shall be my strength
He gives me energy
To walk the heights and run the race
His Truth sets me free
Habakkuk 3:17-19

poem: The Forgotten Ones

The wind howls
The dust flies
And from within the hut
A dying baby cries

Helpless and defenseless
sitting by her side
The mother's heart aches
Still she must abide

Is there no one out there, they cry
Who cares about our plight
When day by day we hunger
And live with constant fright?

You who say your Father
Owns much cattle and much sheep
Will you share your riches
And then His blessing reap?

Safety for Your Soul

The time is coming when the "latter days" shall be. The Last Days before the heavens and earth pass away and all things as we see them now, will change. Time shall be no more. Eternity will begin - all our griefs will finally end. Satan will come on strongly in the very end. The Angel of Death will pass over the earth seeking to devour , and only those who are protected by the Blood of Jesus will be safe.
The question is - Do we want to be totally Safe - just like in the time of the Passover in Egypt? It seems the world of Christianity is playing the casino game - gambling with the eternal situation. We don't need to gamble - we must not gamble with our souls - eternity is swiftly coming.
The Bible says we can be sure of our salvation. Do we want to be sure God's Way or do we want to gamble OUR way? The sure way is "Repent and be Baptized every one of you in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and you shall receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost" Acts 2:38. Also after that, there is still safety to be practised.
Do you want to be safe from Satan? Pray Ephesians 6:18 ; fast Matthew 6:16-18 ; go to church Hebrews 10:25; children obey parents Ephesians 6:1; wives submit to husbands 1 Peter 3:1; husbands submit to God; dress modestly 1 Peter 3:3-6 ; Read the Bible Psalm 119:11; women grow your hair and don't cut it ICorinthians 11:5-15; men cut your hair 1Corinthians 11:14.
You DO NOT HAVE TO DO THESE THINGS! You don't have to do anything. God gives you your total freedom - freedom of choice - BUT - there are consequences when we don't do like God says. I, personally don't want to go against what God says in His Word. Why obey one part of the Bible and not the rest?
Jesus is coming - I believe it is very soon. I don't want to risk missing heaven. I don't want to give Satan an open door in my life. I want to be SAFE, God's Way. Choice - The Choice is Yours!!

What kind of God do you have?

I'll tell you what kind of god I have! I have the kind of God that surprises you - that does things differently than you expected - that does things considering the lasting value of the act - that does things with eternity in view - that does things knowing the whole picture even behind the scenes of what others actually see - that knows all the hearts of men, all the 6 billion alive today and all those already dead - that plans for the future and has planned since before the earth existed - whose mercy is so great that He would have even forgiven Judas if only Judas had asked - whose mercy is so deep , beyond anything we have experienced from any human - who applies the fruits of the Spirit in a perfect way in all situations - whose thoughts are far beyond our imagination - whose creativity is much more interesting than the best painting in any gallery or more interesting than the best novel you have ever read, and yet.......
He was Bruised
He was Wounded
He was Whipped
He was Stabbed
He was Despised
He was Rejected
He was Smitten
He was Oppressed
He was Afflicted
He knew Sorrow
He knew Grief
He knew Agony
He bore ALL our Sin

And then He died , but...
then He Rose from death and conquered it! Why?
- for the Joy that lay before Him, the excitement , the anticipation , the sheer ecstasy of living eternally in His Home with YOU!!!

I am a Patriotic Resident Alien
In talking to Americans, I am amazed that even those that call themselves patriotic, aren't always patriotic to the depths that I, as a Canadian- Resident Alien here, am, to the U.S.A. !
I have a strong heart- feeling to the United States, and to what we stand for, and what we want to do in the world, and in the United States , for our people, for our economy, for our place in the world, and to keep peace in other nations, and help the poor.
Aren't our citizens reading what is was like to be a Pilgrim and come to the NEW nation?? What are they teaching in our schools about freedom, and how hard it was to get freedom and remain free?
Strong Patriotism normally starts in the youth and younger. If the schools are missing out on this instruction - the Pilgrims, the growth of colonies, the fighting with the French, fighting against the British, fighting ( right or Wrong? ) with the Indians, Civil War, crossing America on wagon trains, Gold Rush, building the railroad, growth of the future cities, Emancipation, etc- then the parents of U.S. children need to emphasize these hardships and joys that people have gone through, for their own sake and for us, their grandchildren.
We take so much for granted, We are spoiled- like children who are given too much without working for it.
Thankyou God for what we have! Thankyou for all who gave their lives for our freedom. God Bless America!!

Healthy eating for 2006

One thing that I love and is very healthy is a salad with a million items in it . Some grocery stores offer a ready made mix, but if you have a large family,you will need a large salad. Buying your greens separately is often more economical. Look around in the salad section and let yourself try something new. Add some green onion or some spanish onion. Bok Choy is yummy, and so is fresh spinach. You can even add some slivered or sliced almonds. A light dressing of equal part olive oil and lemon juice with garlic powder and chickweed will not leave you with a stuffed feeling. (chickweed is an herb bought in a health food store- you open a capsule and add only the contents to your dressing) . I always put these ingredients in a jar, close tightly, and shake well. Store in the fridge. Shake again before each use.
Carbs are important, but cutting down on those starches and sugars may be a good thing for you.
My Mom always told me " No second helpings". That way I can even eat chocolate.
