JESUS---THE NAME ABOVE ALL NAMES: PICTURE BY CHRISTIANWALLPAPERSFREE.COM

ST MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL: PICTURE

ST MICHAEL, PRAY FOR US!!! Defend us in the hour of battle.  Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him and do Thou O' Prince of the Heavenly Host by the power of God, cast down into hell satan and all evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.  Amen.

Jn 16: 23-24. “Ask and you shall receive”. Reflection by Cynthia Abegail

“On that day, you will ask nothing of me.  Very truly, I tell you, if you ask anything of the Father in my name, He will give it to you.  Until now you have not asked for anything in my name.  Ask and you will receive, so that your joy maybe complete.  (Jn 16: 23-24).


It was very clear, the Lord reminds the apostles to ask the Father in His name and they shall receive.  Will the Creator of everything, who owns everything will not give what we need as long as we ask?  Is anything too wonderful for the Lord? The generosity of God is beyond compare!



We must praise the Lord at all times.  It’s not that we just ask and ask!  It’s good to adore Him first; then let us ask for forgiveness of our sins.  Afterwards, thank God for all the blessings you have received.  Finally, we ask God for all the things that we need and ask for solutions to our problems.




Dump all worries in the bin!  It’s an insult to God if we do not believe that He could do anything.  Have solid faith.  I know that sometimes we breakdown because of our weakness.  But at the end,  our faith and confidence in Him must prevail!  We were given the intelligence to think, therefore, let us use our brains to figure out the Awesomeness and Majesty of God Almighty!  Praise the Lord!  Amen.

SERVE ONLY GOD: REFLECTION FORWARDED BY PRAYER AID

SERVE ONLY GOD

“We did not heed the voice of the Lord our God in all the words of the prophets whom he sent to us, but we each followed the intent of his own wicked heart by serving other gods and doing what is evil in the sight of the Lord our God.” Baruch 1:21


God is speaking to us through the scriptures, through loved ones, He is speaking to us all the time! Maybe we do not like what He is saying, or we find it difficult to change our view. In humility and faith, let us listen to Him, let us put our thoughts and plans aside and begin to ‘heed the voice’ of our God, and so avoid bringing misery into our lives. Let as ask the Holy Spirit to be sensitive to God’s guidance, and for the strength to obey His Word.

PRAYER FOR PROTECTION THROUGH THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF "JESUS"

Lord Jesus, by faith in your merits, I now take your precious blood and sprinkle it over myself and my family right from the crown of my head to the very soles of my feet. I claim total and complete protection for my life and my family. Lord Jesus, keep me free today from evil, sin, temptation, satan's attacks and afflictions, fear of darkness, sickness, diseases, doubts, anger, calamities and from all that is not of Thy Kingdom. Fill me Lord Jesus with the gift of your Holy Spirit and grant me the gifts of wisdom, knowledge, faith, understanding and discernment so that I will live today in your glory by doing what is right. I praise you Jesus, I thank you Jesus, I love you Jesus, I adore you Jesus.

A FEW MOMENTS IN HEAVEN FORWARDED BY DR. ANISHA KURIAN-PHILIP

A FEW MOMENTS IN HEAVEN

I wanted to share this with you if you would like to put it on your blog. I do not know who wrote it.
This is one of the nicest e-mails I have seen and is so true:
I dreamt that I went to Heaven and an angel was showing me around. We walked side-by-side inside a large workroom filled with angels. My angel guide stopped in front of the first section and said, 'This is the Receiving Section. Here, all petitions to God said in prayer are received.'
I looked around in this area, and it was terribly busy with so many angels sorting out petitions written on voluminous paper sheets and scraps from people all over the world.
Then we moved on down a long corridor until we reached the second section.
The angel then said to me, 'This is the Packaging and Delivery Section. Here, the graces and blessings the people asked for are processed and delivered to the persons who asked for them.' I noticed again how busy it was there. There were many angels working hard at that station, since so many blessings had been requested and were being packaged for delivery to Earth.
Finally at the farthest end of the long corridor we stopped at the door of a very small station. To my great surprise, only one angel was seated there, idly doing nothing. 'This is the Acknowledgment Section,' my angel friend quietly admitted to me. He seemed embarrassed 'How is it that there is no work going on here?' I asked.
'So sad,' the angel sighed. 'After people receive the blessings that they asked for, very few send back acknowledgments .'
'How does one acknowledge God's blessings?' I asked.
'Simple,' the angel answered. Just say, 'Thank you, Lord.'
'What blessings should they acknowledge?' I asked.
'If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep you are richer than 75% of this world. If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish, you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy .'
'And if you get this on your own computer, you are part of the 1% in the world who has that opportunity.'
'If you woke up this morning with more health than illness ... you are more blessed than the many who will not even survive this day .'
'If you have never experienced the fear in battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation ... you are ahead of 700 million people in the world.'
'If you can attend a church without the fear of harassment, arrest, torture or death you are envied by, and more blessed than, three billion people in the world '
'If your parents are still alive and still married ....you are very rare .'
'If you can hold your head up and smile, you are not the norm, you're unique to all those in doubt and despair.'
You just received a double blessing in that someone was thinking of you as very special and you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world who cannot read at all.
Have a good day, count your blessings, stay happy!
Difficult things take a long time, impossible things a little longer...
(Thanks Anisha for sharing this meaningful and lovely story) New World

Feeding of the Five Thousand: Reflection by Cynthia Abegai

“One of his disciples, Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, said to him ‘There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish, but what good are these for so many?  Jesus said, ‘Have the people recline.  Now there was a great deal of grass in that place.  So the men reclined, about five thousand in number.  Then Jesus took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed them to those who were reclining, and also as much of the fish as they wanted.  When they had had their fill, he said to his disciples, ‘Gather the fragments left over, so that nothing will be wasted.’ So they collected them, and filled twelve wicker baskets with fragments from the five barley loaves that had been more they can eat.”   (Jn 6: 8-13)

——————-

God is awesome!   God makes miracles at the right time!   From five barley loaves, five thousand men were fed not even counting the women and children.



It’s not only about the feeding of these people.  It’s more of the compassion and love of God for the people who are hungry and poor.  During that time, barley loaves are food for the poor.  Imagine the scenario:  Dizzy people so hungry and needing refreshment from the day’s listening to God’s Word.



This miracle shows that God can multiply out of nothing or out of a few pieces of any material thing.  God commands and it happens.  We maybe poor sometimes, but God can restore our loss into something beautiful and wonderful.  God is God!  He can do anything!



Hence, whenever we are in need, bend our knees.  Pray to God with sincere hearts and minds.  God will provide for us, guaranteed, just trust in Him.




We are like children dependent only God’s Providence.  Why not?  Our Heavenly Father is rich in love and in everything!

ROSE OF SHARON: POEM BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL

ROSE OF SHARON


I know that the day is coming so soon,
Coming from the tents of Kedar moon
Ebony skin yet eyes like a doe of pearl
The sun has burnt : yet irises of dove...

Where is this Sharon, the king asks
It is where His love abides gently...
Head up high for from Lebanon
Solomon's bride shone of utter joy!

A metaphor of God's love for all,
The bride He cares forever, He calls...
Not to abandon at everlasting end,
To carry on odds and bliss bestows.

The love that's beyond understanding,
And who can fathom God's mind ---
Even the bride is puzzled in rhymes
Yet her eyes is on the Groom, the King!

**THE FRUITES**
POEM
BY
ARIANNA ROSE PHILIP

DELICIOUS FRUITES
SITTING IN THE BOWL
ALL DIFFERENT KINDS
STRAWBERRIES, BLUEBERRIES
EVEN PEACHES LOOK SO DELICIOUS

ALL RIPE
I TAKE ONE BY ONE
AND NOW THERE IS NOTHING LEFT OF THEM
BUT A BOWL !!



(Arianna Rose Philip, the youngest brilliant poet
in New World exudes a striking, natural ambience in
her latest poem, The Fruites.
It is interesting to note that Arianna chose logical themes of
nature and everyday encounters of life. This is superb because we can connect with them perfectly.
Arianna could be envisioned to be a great poetess in her own time; she is truly a promising poet, one to reach heights in the field of literature. Outstanding young poetess! Arianna, we love your poems!)
Cynthia Abegail Bernardo


 I liked the innocence and simplicity of the contents of young Ariann's poem Fruities and other poems which you had forwarded. It seems the frame of her mind is brimming with ideas on subjects which she observes around her. It is also evident that she minutely observe things. A bowel full of fruits and an empty bowel without them ! A common thing of everyday life has been depicted meaningfully and beautifully, I send my best wishes and congratulations to Arianna.

We are not driven to despair: Reflection by Prayer Aid (Jane Pimenta)

We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but nor forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; 2 Cor 4:8-9
No matter what our problems are we have a God given inner strength, a divine strength to keep trusting in the Lord….. Let us draw on that strength as we try to hold on each day to keep our faith alive.  Things may look like there is no hope, we may have no answer to our prayers, no result to all the good we do, sometimes the situation may get worse, and our fears may increase,,,,…  but let us not get discouraged, there is hope, Jesus is our hope, He will never let us down, He allows us to walk in difficult times,  His presence surrounds us, giving us the strength to keep walking……(Excellent Reflection indeed!). Cynthia Abegail for New World

WHEN THE HEART IS FULL OF LOVE

There is beauty in the forest when the trees are green and fair. There is beauty in the meadows when wild flowers scent the air.There is beauty in the sunlight And the soft blue beams above. Oh, the world is full of beauty When the heart is full of love.-
