Living As We Pray

I knelt to pray when the day was done,
And prayed, "Oh Lord bless every one,
Lift from every saddened heart the pain,
And let the sick be well again."

And then I woke another day,
And carelessly went upon my way.
The whole day long I did not try
To wipe a tear from any eye.

I did not try to share the load
Of any brother on the road.
I did not even go see
The sick man just next door to me.

Yet once again when day was done,
I prayed "Oh lord bless everyone."
But as I prayed, unto my ear
There came a voice whispered clear,

"Pause, hypocrite, before you pray.
Whom have you tried to bless today?
God's sweetest blessings always go,
By hand which serve Him below."

And then I hid my face and cried
"Forgive me, God for I have lied.
Let me but live another day,
And I will live the way I pray!"

A Pastor's Prayer

Good Morning Unity and Community;
What does it take for a church to be successful? What attributes should a church have? What does the pastor of the church pray for when he prays about the church he pastors? This morning at Unity, we will address these question. I will share with you my prayer for Unity as Paul prayed for the Philippians. I believe in the power of prayer. I believe God answers prayers. I also believe that He answers those prayers in His time. Sometimes we become discourage when our prayers are not answered right away. I have personally known people who prayed everyday for 51 years before their prayer was answered. Others waited and waited until God answered their prayer. My philosophy on prayer is this P.U.S.H.This stands for Pray Until Something Happens. If churches and individuals would pray like this, it would be amazing what might take place in the Lord's people and His Churches. I invite you this morning to come to Unity. Don't let Satan give you and excuse. Remember, Satan's excuses will not stand in the day of judgment. Worship services begin at 10:45. Pray I see all of you there.

I Know Something Good About You

Wouldn't the world be better,
If folks whom we meet would say,
"I know something good about you,"
And treat you just that way?

Wouldn't it be splendid,
If each handshake, good and true,
Carried with it this assurance:
"I know something good about you?"

Wouldn't life be happier,
If the good that's in us all,
Were the only thing about us
That people would recall?

Wouldn't our days be sweeter,
If we praised the good we see;
For there is a lot of goodness,
In the worst of you and me?

Wouldn't it be fine to practice,
This way of thinking too;
You know something good about me,
I know something good about you?

Do You Ever Have Doubts In God?

Good Morning Unity and Community;
Do you or have you ever have doubts in God. If everyone answered this question truthfully the answer would most likely be yes. I won't lie. There are times when situations arose that I wondered if God was really in control. But as I have matured a little in the Word of God, I find there is no need to doubt or question God.
Today, I will begin a series from the Book of Philippians. One of the first things Paul mention is having confidence in God. There are a lot of examples in the Bible where we find that God's people can always trust Him. So, if you are struggling with doubt and your confidence is not real high in God, come this morning to Unity at 10:45 for Worship and find out how and why we can have full confidence in God. I'm trusting Him and so can you.

My Guide

The open door of another year
I've entered by gace divine;
No ills I fear and no foes I dread,
For a wonderful Guide is mine.
Throught joy or chastening though He lead,
In tears through my race be run,
Whate'er my lot, this prayer shall be,
"Not mine, but Thy will be done."

I walk by faith in my heav'nly Guide,
With fearless, unfaltering tread,
Assured that He, who appoints my days,
Will daily provide my bread.
He'll send more grace should affliction come,
And a staff for the pathway steep,
While o'er me ever by night and day
My Father His watch will keep.

With perfect trust in His love and care,
I'll walk to my journey's end;
And day by day He will strength renew,
And peace to my heart will send.
O blessed Guide, walking all unseen,
Yet close to my side alway.
Do Thou, who guides my steps aright,
Lead on to eternal day!
