prayer13 – THE HOPE FORMULA


_________________________________________
THE HOPE FORMULA
despair is more prevalent than hope
discouragement more than encouragement
oh we of little faith
let us talk to Him to give us hope
despair is only a feeling
inner strength can remove it
prayer and faith can make it vanish
ask Jesus for the grace of hope
despair is the most terrible tragedy
that can happen to anyone
to replace it with hope
is the most awesome relief
the hope formula begins with
total surrender to His will
once you have done that
despair will fade away
remember always His words
MY YOKE IS SWEET
AND MY BURDEN IS LIGHT

SAY BUT THE WORD
AND MY SOUL SHALL BE HEALED
this is one of the most powerful healing prayers
in ten short words
you express your surrender to His will
you give yourself to Him for healing

a rich man approached a beggar
asking what the beggar can give him
the beggar gave him
the few coins he had
then the beggar realized
the rich man was Jesus
everyone must give including beggars
we all have something to give

BIBLE LESSON
God was angry because israel
embraced the god baal of the midianites
as a consequence the midianites
held them in bondage
God sent an emissary to gideon
whose brothers the midianites killed
telling him that he would
defeat the midianites in battle
God ordered gideon to replace
the altar for baal owned by his father joash
with one for Jehovah
and offered a sacrifice there
the angry Israelites wanted to kill him
joash said ‘if baal is truly a god
let him avenge himself’
and so gideon was spared
gideon assembled an army of 32,000
God said they were too many
they will only attribute their victory
to their own strength, not to their God
gideon trimmed the army to 300
and attacked the midianites
at night using trumpets and torches
to sow fear and panic
in the confusion
the midianites fought each other
and gideon’s army prevailed
for the rest of his life, Israel was in peace
judges 6-8
THE LESSON IS REPEATED MANY TIMES
IN THE OLD TESTAMENT
MANY STILL DO NOT UNDERSTAND
THAT WE DRAW STRENGTH FROM GOD
WITH GOD YOU ACHIEVE VICTORY
EVEN IF THE ENEMY OUTNUMBERS YOU
WITHOUT HIM YOU BECOME A SLAVE
EVEN IF YOU ARE STRONG ON YOUR OWN
WITH GOD YOU ACHIEVE THE IMPOSSIBLE
WITHOUT HIM YOU FAIL IN SIMPLE TASKS
RETURN TO THE LORD
AND HE WILL BLESS YOU

DO NOT BE PROUD
ATTRIBUTE YOUR TALENTS
AND STRENGTH TO HIM
WHO IS YOUR LORD AND CREATOR
