I am thankful this Thursday for a church that has a vision, that wants to see souls
saved, and wants to bring boys and girls in to learn about Jesus. Matthewt 19:14 
"But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven". So many Churches do not have soul winning programs any more, so I am honored to be part of a church who goes out on visitation and brings in souls for the glory of God, amen and amen. This photo is one of our bus, some of the men are working on the bus, sanding, taping off and painting, it takes lots of hard work, and praise God for men willing to give of their time for this project; it will be blue and white all when finished, now the white is finished, today they will tape the rest off, and tomorow the bus will be painted, (Lord willing and it does not rain) here are a  couple more photos of the bus in the process. Wonderful site to behold, and a wonderfl place to be serving my lord. As it states in Proverbs 29:18  "Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he".
Praise God our people have a  vision, and it is seeing the lost brought to a
saving knowledge of Christ. Here are the other photos:

You can see it is looking good, and should be pretty well finished tomorrow.
I just have so much to be thankful for, my pastor ask me to teach the teen
girls, now I have taught all ages, and for the past 20 years been teaching women,
it has been a long time since I taught young girls, but I am taking the challenge,
and I ask that God give me all I need to teach them, I know I have love, I have his
word, and beyond that he will do the rest, so I trust in him to help us grow
together and become the Godly women our lord wants us to be.
I am thinking on this, I talked to the girls last night after service about going out on visitation with me, and they are all excited, I am so thrilled, perhaps we will build this class by getting them in one by one, amen, no better event than to take them soul winning, maybe spring for a treat of some kind afterwards too, these girls are dear, I am really looking forward to teaching them, and becoming a part of their life. Lord help me to be what YOU would have me to me, so I may teach others, we must first be a good follower before we can ever be a teacher, so may I follow faithfully, and do all that is expected in me, thank you lord, for giving me such a complete and wonderful written hand book to learn from and to live by, thank you for saving me and making me one of your children, I so pray that I may help others on their walk in faith, God's word shall reveal all I need, so thank you lord for this day that I am able to praise you.
Do you dear blogger have a testimony for this wonderful Thursday to be thankful for?
God bless you each and may your day count for the lord Jesus Christ and may he bless you completely. ♥

Luke 18:9-15 Very first prayer God hears..

9 And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others:
10 Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.
11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.
12 I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.
13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.
14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
15 And they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch them: but when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them.

What is Prayer ~ Simply talking to God. ~

Prayer had an important place in the life and the teachings of Jesus. He was a man of prayer, praying frequently in private and in public, and occasionally spending whole nights in communion with His heavenly Father. He often spoke to His disciples on the subject of prayer, urging perseverance, faith and large expectation, and He gave them a model of devotion in the Lord’s prayer.   We find it in Matthew 6:5-15

5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Prayer Has a big effect on your life, when you are praying and seeking to be close to God, it shows in all you do. Prayer keeps us in sweet communion with our heavenly Father, by reading our Bible and praying we stay close to the lord, if you stay in constant prayer and reading his holy word, you will not stray far, I have never heard any one falling away from God when they are in much prayer and study.
