Reading and Scripture work from Proverbs 17:27, and Psalm 34:19, The Lord will always deliver us from all of our afflictions, be a person of wisdom and few words, and have that calm spirit feel the presence of the Lord.
In the name of the Father and the Son and Holy Spirit. Amen!
Prayer of Enlightenment
Having received this new day as a gift, I thank you, Holy Trinity, for through Your
goodness and patience You were not wrathful with me, an idler and a sinner, neither have You cast me down in my sins. But You have shown Your love towards me and have guided me to keep my daily watch and to glorify Your power. Enlighten my mind to study Your word and open my heart to understand Your teachings in Scripture. Help me to apply what I learn and to praise You with all of my heart and to glorify Your holy name, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen!
Isaiah 12: http://bib.ly/Isa12.NKJV :
12:1-6: Reference the Song of Mary in Luke 1:45-55: http://bib.ly/Lk1.45-55.NKJV : The Song of Mary is part of my daily prayer readings, I chant this prayer for my Twelve hour prayer at 6pm my time.
12:3-6: This passage is read on January 5, the Eve of the Feast of Theophany and on the Feast Day January 6.
Isaiah 13: http://bib.ly/Isa13.NKJV :
13:1-22: In this passage alone we have several layers of meaning: (1): In this passage it prophesies the ultimate downfall of Babylon. (2): it prophecies Christ’s Passion and Resurrection, when Christ will be lifted up on the cross and the hosts of heaven will gather to battle the darkness, Reference both Luke 23:44-45, and Matthew 27:51-54: http://bib.ly/Lk23.44-45.NKJV http://bib.ly/Mt27.51-54.NKJV (3): it also describes the anger of Christ in the Last (Final) Judgement.
13:19-22: Babylon: was a glorious city which will be utterly destroyed. It’s a metaphor for sin. Demons will dance in the desert giving a present but stark image of HELL, the ultimate place of rebellion from YHWH. Reference Isaiah 14:23, Isaiah 34:14, and Revelation 18:2: http://bib.ly/Isa14.23.NKJV http://bib.ly/Isa34.14.NKJV http://bib.ly/Re18.2.NKJV : The donkey-centaurs, from Greek Mythology meaning from the waist of man, and from the waist down from a horse. This is symbolic or representing a rebellion against divine order and hostility to a civilization. The Phrase can be translated to “wild beast” and most likely a symbol for demons.
“Continue to walk by FAITH, be a person of few words, but have a calm spirit of understanding. Even though we are children of the light we aren’t exempt from afflictions and struggles in the flesh. Yet our Lord and Savior will always deliver us out of our troubles, continue to walk by FAITH; Never Hold Back!”

Proverbs 17:27:( http://bib.ly/Pr17.27.NKJV ) He who has knowledge spares his words,
And a man of understanding is of a calm spirit.
“He Who refrains from uttering a harsh word is intelligent, because this restraint shows he possesses the general virtues of wisdom and his or her tongues are under control. He also has longsuffering , a fruit of discernment, one of the general virtues.”
Psalm 34:19: http://bib.ly/Ps34.19.NKJV : Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
But the Lord delivers him out of them all.
“The Lord will most certainly deliver us out of any afflictions and longsuffering, we just have to walk by FAITH and believe; stay patient, have hope and spread love!”

The Lord’s Prayer
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 Yours is the Kingdom, the power and the glory of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen!
May YAHWEH Bless you all,
