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!

Matthew 6:33: http://bib.ly/Mt6.33.NKJV : But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
6:33: The Kingdom of YHWH: Is the central theme of the teachings of Yeshua, and His Righteousness and was the subject of His sermon at the Mount. He called us to be free from anxiety about silly earthly things. Instead Yeshua directs us to look and seek heaven, and then secure our faith that YHWH will provide needed earthly things and blessings.
“I no longer live for my needs but instead ask the Lord for my guided path. I ask Him to help to assist me in my decision making and for Him to help with staying calm in stressful situations. This is the first step in creating a relationship with our Creator. We must submit and discard the old person, and live the rest of our days living in the new. Seek Him now and He will do the rest, The Lord only wants your heart, give Him that; He will do the rest!”

Psalm 13:5: http://bib.ly/Ps13.5.NKJV : But I have trusted in Your mercy;
My heart shall rejoice in Your salvation.
“Today’s ending message is this: get your houses in order spiritually and have some things stocked up. Time is just time but one day what we have now may not be around forever. We are living in times of adaptation meaning we must use extreme wisdom moving forward. What happened to me last night can't be explained but my message can be. There is truly life after death, and now we have two options, good or evil. Continue to trust in Him, and rejoice at your salvation because you chose redemption; that’s real freedom, our eternal life with Yeshua!”

Lord, Lord, both day and night belongs to You, You formed the light and the sun and marked the bounds of the earth. And so we pray: let Your great mercy shine on our wretchedness like the dawning light; free us from darkness and from the shadow of death, and from all the attacks and snares of the evil one. For we proclaim the glory and holiness of Your name, worthy of all honor and majesty, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, now and forever, to the ages of ages, Amen!
Through the prayers of our holy Fathers, Lord Yeshua, Christ our God, have mercy upon us and save us. Amen!
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,
