Prayer Requests 9-4-19

It’s Wednesday, so don’t forget Ajissun and the folks in The Gambia.

Anyone else?

Psalm 29

Ascribe to the Lord, you heavenly beings,
    ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
    worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness.

The voice of the Lord is over the waters;
    the God of glory thunders,
    the Lord thunders over the mighty waters.
The voice of the Lord is powerful;
    the voice of the Lord is majestic.
The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;
    the Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.
He makes Lebanon leap like a calf,
    Sirion like a young wild ox.
The voice of the Lord strikes
    with flashes of lightning.
The voice of the Lord shakes the desert;
    the Lord shakes the Desert of Kadesh.
The voice of the Lord twists the oaks
    and strips the forests bare.
   And in his temple all cry, “Glory!”

10 The Lord sits enthroned over the flood;
    the Lord is enthroned as King forever.
11 The Lord gives strength to his people;
    the Lord blesses his people with peace.

  1. Will do Mumsee.

    When I was at Carolina, I used to go with Al, Slim, and others, down to the Victory Serviceman’s Center to witness and provide a place for soldiers on the weekend. I often took my turn preaching a sermon to those who would listen. Tha’’s why I felt a call to the mininstry, but that’s another story. I just want to point out that I occasionally preached on Sunday afternoons.

    Today, I was reading Ch. 15 of Mark. It tells of the trial and crucifixion of Jesus. Every time I read that, I am reminded of a sermon I used to preach. E.g. “The Man Who Crucified Jesus”. It was not Judas, he only identified him. It wasn’t the Sanhedran, they had no authority to do so. Though they instigated it. It wasn’t Pilate. He did his best to avoid the crucifixion, except for the courage to resist an uproar. That left only one person who was ultimately responsible for the crucifixion of Jesus.

    The man in who crowd who cried “Crucify Him”. Pilate MK 15:12.
    “What shall I do with him whom you call King of the Jews”? They cried “Crucify Him”.
    That is the man who crucified Jesus. A man who likely was passing down the street, who likely didn’t know what it was about. Butsome people he trusted egged him on to join the fray.
    So? The man in the crowd, initially minding his own business, joined the fray and crucified Jesus.

  2. And, ultimately, in the big picture of the crucifixion, there was the invisible Hand behind the scenes that moves all of history for a very specific divine purpose.
