in sweden many in there youth do suicid im very sad because they futhure is THEIRS not mine they become my age but I never into theirs , 285 people in our community are currently praying with you.
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever.
The Love of Christ
Oh holy Christ, I thank you and love you for seeing who I really am. You know things about me that I don’t even know myself, for you see with the clear eye of God, and not through the psychological tangle of human emotion and self-deception as others see me and I see myself. I most especially thank you, I fall upon my knees in gratitude, that you love me despite all of the sin and ugliness you see in me. You can see my beauty and heart, also, though, and love me as nobody else possibly could.
Peace under God
Like a father, you love me. Like a perfect brother, you love me. Knowing that you see me so clearly, and yet love me enough to suffer torture and death to save my soul, transcends my comprehension. I would be sick with shame, except that you have forbidden it, and by the power of God forgive my wrongdoing.
I give myself to you wholly, freely; every part of me blesses you. Take me to your bosom, holy Christ; let me live your love and reflect your light, that others may see a dim reflection of your magnificence in my lowly life, and that despite my many grievous faults, I might please you by doing better today, and every day. And this I vow: I will try, at least once today, to take a step closer to you, by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Cross and Crown
Almighty God, bestow upon me, and upon all of us who pray together, the meaning of words, the light of understanding, the nobility of diction and the faith of the true nature. And grant that what we believe we may also speak.
St. Hilary, 345 A.D.
“One man seems silent in speech, but is condemning other people with his heart . . . he is really talking incessantly. Another man seems to talk all day, yet keeps his silence, for he always speaks in a way that is useful to his hearers.”
~ Abba Poemen
Finally, may I go forth filled with the joy and confidence of your Spirit; and may everything I do this day, in word or deed, be done in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.
Think of the day ahead in terms of God with you, and visualize health, strength, guidance, purity, calm confidence, and victory as the gifts of His presence.
Proverbs 11:2 (NKJV)
When pride comes, then comes shame;
But with the humble is wisdom.
Blue Latin Cross
Hosea 6, 8 (excerpts) (ESV)
ome, let us return to the Lord.
For He has torn us, but He will heal us;
He has wounded us, but He will bandage us.
He will revive us after two days;
He will raise us up on the third day,
That we may live before Him.
What shall I do with you, O Ephraim?
What shall I do with you, O Judah?
For your loyalty is like a morning cloud
And like the dew which goes away early.
For I delight in loyalty rather than sacrifice,
And in the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings.

They made kings, but not through me.
They set up princes, but I knew it not.
With their silver and gold they made idols
for their own destruction.
For it is from Israel;
a craftsman made it;
it is not God.
The calf of Samaria
shall be broken to pieces.
For they sow the wind,
and they shall reap the whirlwind.
Notes on the Scripture
Israel after Solomon (19): Hosea’s Prophecies
In Chapters 1 to 3 of Hosea, the prophet provides a visible symbol of the broken relationship between God and the people of Israel, the ten tribes in the Northern Kingdom. At the end, Hosea finds and redeems Gomer, buying her back to be his wife; a message of hope to the Hebrews that God might someday forgive them.
The remaining 12 chapters are long, somewhat disjointed and sometimes difficult to follow unless one wants to really invest a few hours to read them thoroughly. Most people will choose not to and, indeed, with good reason. There are many parts of the Bible to study, and most of them are more profitable to growth in faith than the enormous body of prophecy. Most of the prophecy states one basic message in 1,000 different ways: The Hebrews have forsaken God by worshipping idols and He is going to punish them for it, by destruction of their kingdoms. Repent and turn back to God. Then, in a much smaller number of verses, there is the promise of a Messiah who will effectuate their redemption.

There are two famous passages from Hosea. First, the phrase, “For they sow the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind.” As a famous quote in popular culture, it has lost some of its impact in the past 100 years, bu

They forget to mention spiritual warfare. For lack of knowledge my people perish. If someone is suicidal it’s demonic attack. Lying spirits. Murdering spirits, many spirits.
“Lord Jesus, I ask you to come into my life. I want to turn from living my life under my own control. Come now and live your life in me. Cleanse me from my sins. I receive you as my Lord and my Savior. I will live for you and serve you all the days of my life. Amen.”
Wrong! Satan is deceptive.
“Father God I repent of my sins, I repent of my unbelief. I forgive everyone who has sinned against me. I believe that you sent your son to Die and His blood covers my sins”…..we repent to God, we look unto the cross and cry the blood and we receive life in Jesus Christ.
Repent and believe. Trust and obey. Even saying I will live for you the rest of my life will only get you in trouble. Take no oath! And be sure you follow your vows. Better to pray how God says to pray. Like the sinner who Pounds his chest. God will do it. Our job is simply to humble ourselves and look unto Jesus.
The spirit of praise kills the spirit of depression! Nobody talks about spiritual warfare and doctrines are all man altered. Be careful in these last day’s.
