Praises & Prayer Requests
Since therefore, brethren, we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God. Hebrews 10:19,20,21 (NASB)
For Christ did not enter a holy place made with hands, a mere copy of the true one, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us; Hebrews 9:24 (NASB)
Surely in vain have I kept my heart pure; in vain have I washed my hands in innocence. Psalm 73:13 (NIV)
...let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Hebrews 10:22 (NASB)
5. Pray: Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
Matthew 5:8 (NASB)
Thank you for the many gifts to provide Bibles and study materials to complete inmates requests. The need is so great.
I remember back in the early 60s that Stewart Hamblen had come to know Christ at the Billy Graham crusade in Los Angeles. He wrote that great song "It Is No Secret." There was another song of his that our youth group used to love to sing. It asks the question, Is He satisfied? Please join me in singing these 2 verses as we worship and let His Spirit search our own hearts.
"Is He Satisfied?"
Do you ever search your heart as you watch the day depart?
Is there something way down deep you try to hide?
If this day should be the end and eternity begin, when the book is opened wide,
would the Lord be satisfied?
(Feeble) is the lamp of fame by which man inscribes his name
on the walls of time for other men to see.
Though he boasts of wealth and pow'r none can help him
that hour when the angels hear his plea; is He satisfied with me?
Is He satisfied, is He satisfied? Is He satisfied with me?
Have I done my best, have I stood the test? Is He satisfied with me?
When my Lord shall come again, when He walks and talks with men,
what if ev'ry friend He had were just like me?
Would He feel a welcome here or would He go away in tears?
Am I all that I should be? Is He satisfied with me?
