We must “PRAY WITHOUT CEASING” (1 Thessalonians 5:17) in these rapidly changing times as the world heads towards THE END:

Without a doubt as days go by in this world with news daily on the second wave of the Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 affecting all corners on this earth, untold numbers of people are most certainly concerned for their lives.

In times such as these we must be reminded what Paul, the apostle said: “pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

We must pray to God in the name of Jesus to protect us and to supply our needs in these ever rapidly changing times.

“[TRUST IN HIM AT ALL TIMES]; ye people, pour out your heart before him: [GOD IS A REFUGE FOR US]” (Psalm 62:8).

“[GOD IS OUR REFUGE AND STRENGTH, A VERY PRESENT HELP IN TROUBLE]. The LORD of hosts is [WITH US]; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah” (Psalm 46:1, 11).

“I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

[SURELY HE SHALL DELIVER THEE] from the snare of the fowler, and [FROM THE NOISOME PESTILENCE].

[THOU SHALT NOT BE AFRAID] for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

Nor [FOR THE PESTILENCE THAT WALKETH IN DARKNESS]; nor

for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

[THERE SHALL NO EVIL BEFALL THEE, NEITHER SHALL ANY PLAGUE COME NIGH THY DWELLING]” (Psalm 91:2-3, 5-6, 10).

“[LET US THEREFORE COME BOLDLY UNTO THE THRONE OF GRACE], that we may [OBTAIN MERCY], and [FIND GRACE TO HELP IN TIME OF NEED]” (Hebrews 4:14-16).

Our Lord Jesus says: “Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? But [SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD, AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS; AND ALL THESE THINGS SHALL BE ADDED UNTO YOU]” (Matthew 6:31).

“[WHEN YE PRAY, USE NOT VAIN REPETITIONS, AS THE HEATHEN DO[: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: [FOR YOUR FATHER KNOWETH WHAT THINGS YE HAVE NEED OF, BEFORE YE ASK HIM]” (Matthew 6:7-8).

“[AFTER THIS MANNER THEREFORE PRAY YE]: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Give us [THIS DAY] our [DAILY BREAD].

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

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” (Matthew 6:9-13).

PRAY to the FATHER in the name of his ONLY BEGOTTEN SON.

“[BE NOT RASH WITH THY MOUTH], and let not thine heart be hasty [TO UTTER ANY THING BEFORE GOD]: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: [THEREFORE LET THY WORDS BE FEW]” (Ecclesiastes 5:2).

“[NO MAN HATH SEEN GOD] at any time; [THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON], which is in the bosom of the Father, h hath declared him” (John 1:18).

“For there is [ONE GOD], and [ONE MEDIATOR BETWEEN GOD AND MEN], the man [CHRIST JESUS]: who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time” (1 Timothy 2:5–6).

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8) says: “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” (Matthew 6:6).

“When ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him” (Matthew 6:7-8).

“[AFTER THIS MANNER THEREFORE PRAY YE]: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

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” (Matthew 6:913).

We must pray to GOD the MOST HIGH in the name of JESUS who sits at his right hand for all things we face in this world.

“[FOR THERE IS ONE GOD, AND ONE MEDIATOR] between God and men, the man Christ Jesus: who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time” (1 Timothy 2:5–6).

“Let us therefore come boldly unto the [THRONE OF GRACE], that [WE MAY OBTAIN MERCY, AND FIND GRACE TO HELP] in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16).

“[OUR HELP IS IN THE NAME] of the LORD, [WHO MADE HEAVEN AND EARTH]” (Psalm 124:8).

“I WILL lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.

He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.

Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.

The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.

The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.

The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore” (Psalm 121:1-8).

“Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting, and to everlasting. Amen, and Amen” (Psalm 41:13).

PRAY, PRAY AND PRAY rather than PROTEST!

PRAYING CHANGES EVERYTHING versus Protesting changes Nothing!

We must PRAY to GOD in the name of JESUS in SECRET and according to his WILL our PRAYERS will be answered OPENLY TO THE WORLD.

Whereas, PROTESTING OPENLY for the world to see with Violence and Rioting will only result in SECRET CHANGES with the passing of laws that benefits only the world!

Our Lord Jesus, the only begotten Son of God says: Ҧ 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.

“[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]” (Matthew 6:5-6).

“[WHEN YE PRAY, USE NOT VAIN REPETITIONS], as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. [BE NOT YE THEREFORE LIKE UNTO THEM]: for [YOUR FATHER KNOWETH WHAT THINGS YE HAVE NEED OF, BEFORE YE ASK HIM]” (Matthew 6:7-8).

“[AFTER THIS MANNER THEREFORE PRAY YE]: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Give us [THIS DAY] our [DAILY BREAD].

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

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” (Matthew 6:9-13).

We must NEVER GIVE UP but GIVE THANKS ALWAYS TO GOD IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST!

To GIVE UP is to GIVE UP ON GOD: God Forbid.

Whatever we are facing today and will face in the future in this world we must PRAY WITHOUT CEASING TO GOD IN THE NAME OF JESUS BELIEVING IN OUR HEARTS THAT OUR PRAYERS WILL BE ANSWERED.

We must be reminded the word of God says: “[GOD HATH SPOKEN ONCE; TWICE HAVE I HEARD THIS; THAT POWER BELONGETH UNTO GOD]” (Psalm 62:11).

“For all the earth is mine” (Exodus 19:5).

“The earth is the LORD’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein” (Psalm 24:1).

Therefore, let us PRAY, BELIEVE AND WAIT UPON GOD!

Our Lord JESUS says: “[AND ALL THINGS, WHATSOEVER YE SHALL ASK IN PRAYER, BELIEVING, YE SHALL RECEIVE. AND WHATSOEVER YE SHALL ASK IN MY NAME, THAT WILL I DO, THAT THE FATHER MAY BE GLORIFIED IN THE SON. IF YE SHALL ASK ANY THING IN MY NAME, I WILL DO IT” (Matthew 21:22)  (John 14:13-14).

The Apostle Paul said: “[REJOICE IN THE LORD ALWAY: AND AGAIN I SAY, REJOICE].

Let your moderation be known unto all men. [THE LORD IS AT HAND].

[BE CAREFUL FOR NOTHING; BUT IN EVERY THING BY PRAYER AND SUPPLICATION WITH THANKSGIVING LET YOUR REQUESTS BE MADE KNOWN UNTO GOD].

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:4-7).

“Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. [IN EVERY THING GIVE THANKS]: for this is the [WILL OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS CONCERNING YOU]” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18).

“[GIVING THANKS ALWAYS FOR ALL THINGS UNTO GOD AND THE FATHER IN THE NAME OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST]” (Ephesians 5:20).

“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen” (2 Corinthians 13:14).

Thanksgiving Ephesians 5:20 Giving thanks to God the Father for everything.

We must pray EVERY DAY to our FATHER in HEAVEN.

We cannot pray when we feel like praying; we cannot pray only when we have problems or are in trouble; we cannot pray today and not tomorrow; and so on: WE MUST PRAY EVERY DAY!

“IT is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High: To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the [MORNING], and thy faithfulness every [NIGHT]” (Psalm 92:1-2).

JESUS, the only begotten Son of God says: “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him” (John 4:24, 23).

“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” (Matthew 6:6).

“When ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him” (Matthew 6:7-8).

“[AFTER THIS MANNER THEREFORE PRAY YE]: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 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” (Matthew 6:9-13).

The Lord’s Prayer from the Church of England Book of Common Worship

Our FATHER in the name of JESUS hear our PRAYER:

We pray for ALL who are now in sickness that you may heal them, and that they may fully recovered.

We also pray for ALL who are suffering financial hardship unable to provide for their families and meet their financial commitments. We pray that you pour our your SPIRIT to supply them in this time of need.

We also pray for ALL who have lost family and friends that you comfort them in this time of mouring.

Heavenly FATHER in the name of JESUS we pray for your BLESSINGS, GOODNESS AND MERCIES in ALL our lives that you keep us STEADFAST in your LOVE enduring this lifetime to THE END. Amen.

James, the brother of Jesus encourages, saying: “[CONFESS YOUR FAULTS ONE TO ANOTHER, AND PRAY ONE FOR ANOTHER], that ye may be healed. [THE EFFECTUAL FERVENT PRAYER OF A RIGHTEOUS MAN AVAILETH MUCH]” (James 5:16).

“The LORD is far from the wicked: but he [HEARETH THE PRAYER OF THE RIGHTEOUS]” (Proverbs 15:29).

“[BE CAREFUL FOR NOTHING; BUT IN EVERY THING BY PRAYER] and supplication with thanksgiving [LET YOUR REQUESTS BE MADE KNOWN UNTO GOD]. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7).

In glory of the FATHER, SON and the HOLY SPIRIT. Amen.

When we PRAY we must PRAY to GOD in TRUTH and in SPIRIT in the name of JESUS having FAITH BELIEVING our PRAYERS will be answered by GOD.

We must BELIEVE that what we are asking for we will receive; we must BELIEVE that we will find what we are looking for; we must BELIEVE that the door will be opened on which we are knocking; we must BELIEVE that we will be healed from our sickness and son on (Matthew 21:22)  (Luke 11:9–10) (John 14:13-14).

“But [WITHOUT FAITH IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE HIM]: for he that [COMETH TO GOD MUST BELIEVE THAT HE IS], and that [HE IS A REWARDER OF THEM THAT DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM]” (Hebrews 11:6).

“[NOW FAITH IS THE SUBSTANCE OF THINGS HOPED FOR, THE EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN]” (Hebrews 11:1).

James also asked, “[WHAT DOTH IT PROFIT], my brethren, though a man say [HE HATH FAITH, AND HAVE NOT WORKS]? [CAN FAITH SAVE HIM]?” (James 2:14).

“[EVEN SO FAITH, IF IT HATH NOT WORKS, IS DEAD, BEING ALONE]” (James 2:17).

“Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? And the Scripture was fulfilled which saith, ‘Abraham [BELIEVED] God, and [IT WAS IMPUTED UNTO HIM FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS]: and he was called the Friend of God.’ Ye see then how that by [WORKS A MAN IS JUSTIFIED], and not by faith only” (James 2:21–24).

Jesus asks: “Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he [FIND FAITH ON THE EARTH]?” (Luke 18:8).

“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that [DOETH THE WILL OF MY FATHER] which is in heaven” (Matthew 7:21).

When Jesus was here on earth he was asked “What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?” (John 6:28).

“Jesus answered and said unto them, ‘[THIS IS THE WORK OF GOD], that ye [BELIEVE ON HIM WHOM HE HATH SENT]’” (John 6:29).

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever [BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD not perish, but have [EVERLASTING LIFE]. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:16-18).

“[JESUS CHRIST THE SAME YESTERDAY, AND TODAY, AND FOREVER]” (Hebrews 13:8). “Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, [WORLD WITHOUT END]. Amen” (Ephesians 3:21).

Everyday we awake in this world we must give GOD thanks in the name of JESUS for his BLESSINGS, GOODNESS AND MERCIES.

In the midst of this COVID-19 global pandemic there are untold numbers of people with sadness, sufferings and sickness, and we pray to GOD in the name of JESUS, not by our will but his will, to comfort, strengthen and heal all people over this world.

Each of us in our daily lives are experiencing something, and while at times we may doubt of the presence of GOD in the name of JESUS, God Forbid, we must at ALL times PRAY BELIEVING IN OUR HEARTS THAT OUR PRAYERS WILL BE ANSWERED.

“The LORD is far from the wicked: but [HE HEARETH THE PRAYER OF THE RIGHTEOUS]” (Proverbs 15:29).

“[LET US THEREFORE COME BOLDLY UNTO THE THRONE OF GRACE], that we may [OBTAIN MERCY, AND FIND GRACE TO HELP IN TIME OF NEED]” (Hebrews 4:16).

“[TRUST IN HIM AT ALL TIMES]; ye people, [POUR OUT YOUR HEART BEFORE HIM]: God is a refuge for us” (Psalm 62:8).

“The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and [HE KNOWETH THEM THAT TRUST IN HIM]” (Nahum 1:7).

Our Lord JESUS, the only begotten Son of God says: “[WHEN YE PRAY, USE NOT VAIN REPETITIONS], as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him” (Matthew 6:7-8).

“[AND ALL THINGS, WHATSOEVER YE SHALL ASK IN PRAYER, BELIEVING, YE SHALL RECEIVE. AND WHATSOEVER YE SHALL ASK IN MY NAME, THAT WILL I DO, THAT THE FATHER MAY BE GLORIFIED IN THE SON. IF YE SHALL ASK ANY THING IN MY NAME, I WILL DO IT” (Matthew 21:22)  (John 14:13-14).

“And I say unto you, ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened” (Luke 11:9–10).

The Apostle Paul said: “Rejoice evermore. [PRAY WITHOUT CEASING]. [IN EVERY THING GIVE THANKS]: for this is the [WILL OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS CONCERNING YOU]” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18).

“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen” (2 Corinthians 13:14).
