Prayer for an end to domestic violence

Dear God, when I think of a family, I think of a mother, father, and children – all living together and sharing mutual love, concern, and kindness. For some, however, family life is filled with pain, anger, and fear. The harsh reality of physical, verbal, and emotional abuse that is present among so many families is a problem that must not be ignored. Father, guide all people so they do not resort to abuse of any kind in their relationships.

Give those who have difficulty coping with their responsibilities the wisdom and courage to recognize their problems and, when needed, to seek counseling. I ask You also to protect the children raised in abusive families from continuing the harmful cycle of abuse as they mature and become parents themselves. Amen.

Lent Devotions – Day 5

Lent is a solemn religious observance in the liturgical calendar of many Christian denominations that begins on Ash Wednesday and covers a period of approximately six weeks before Easter Sunday. Lent is a season of the Christian Year where Christians focus on simple living, prayer, and fasting in order to grow closer to God.

Many times we hear others talk against Jesus. Because of fear, friendship, relation we are unable to tell them what they are saying is wrong and sin. Sometimes we think or talk against Jesus, church, people who are spreading the word of God. Let us ask pardon to Jesus for all such sins.

Fear of sickness – Fear of Satan – God will heal fearful mind

Jesus

do not fear, for I am with you,do not be afraid, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my victorious right hand. (Isaiah 41:10

You might have ever experienced fear in mind while walking alone through a forest  or walking alone at dark night . But at that time if someone is with you and he encourage you by his words ” Hey, don’t be afraid, I am with you”, then your fear will go away. Because you are confident that he will surely protect you. If you have that much faith in an ordinary person like you , then why can’t you have faith in God, who is your creator and protector?  He knows your way, your fear and everything.  See below Bible verses through which God encouraging you.

Sometimes you are afraid of others. You fear that they can harm you. They have put yoke on your neck and tied your hands so that you can’t do anything good. You might have experienced this kind of attitude from others at your work or society, may be at home also. Don’t be afraid of this kind of things.  God is saying you what he will do if you have faith in him.

On that day, says the Lord of hosts, I will break the yoke from off his neck, and I will burst his bonds, and strangers shall no more make a servant of him. (Jeremiah 30:8)

Some people have fear in mind thinking about sickness. Disease may be very minor, but think it as major disease. They fear that this disease make them outcast. Some disease really make them outcast. That create depression and disturbance in the mind.  The God has something to tell to such persons.

For I will restore health to you,
and your wounds I will heal,
says the Lord,
because they have called you an outcast:
“It is Zion; no one cares for her!” (Jeremiah 30:17)
But overhearing what they said, Jesus said to the leader of the synagogue, “Do not fear, only believe.” (Mark 5:36)

Sometimes we fear about power of the enemy, satan. Sometimes we fear about evil or wicked magical powers. We think that we are sick due to such powers used by our enemy. What God has to say to us about such things?

See, I have given you authority to tread on snakes and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing will hurt you. (Luke 10:19)

God has given us authority over all such powers of the enemy, so nothing will hurt us.

The God of peace will shortly crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. (Romans 16:20)

God will crush Satan under our feet. Once crushed how can he get up?

And you shall tread down the wicked, for they will be ashes under the soles of your feet, on the day when I act, says the Lord of hosts. (Malachi 4:3)

The day when God act, we shall tread down the wicked and they will be ashes under the soles of our feet. What the ashes can do ? Nothing.  When breeze comes, it will fly away and when rain it will wash away.

Look! On the mountains the feet of one
who brings good tidings,
who proclaims peace!
Celebrate your festivals, O Judah,
fulfill your vows,
for never again shall the wicked invade you;
they are utterly cut off. (Nahum 1:15)
Then I will encamp at my house as a guard,
so that no one shall march to and fro;
no oppressor shall again overrun them,
for now I have seen with my own eyes. (Zechariah 9:8)

God saying that he is against bands with which you hunt lives. It is a warning to those people who is away from God and following Satan and his powers to hunt others lives. God telling it clearly that He will tear the bands from your arms, and let the lives go free. God will free them like birds, the lives that you hunt down like birds. So, if you are a person following Satan who hunt others lives, be careful. Stop following Satan, repent, ask God to forgive, then follow God only. If you are a person fear about such powers of Satan, then don’t be afraid, because God will remove and destroy all such bands from you, he will protect you. He will tear off your veils, save you from their hands and you will realise that He is your Lord, the only saviour of the world.

Therefore thus says the Lord God: I am against your bands with which you hunt lives; I will tear them from your arms, and let the lives go free, the lives that you hunt down like birds. (Ezekiel 13:20)

I will tear off your veils, and save my people from your hands; they shall no longer be prey in your hands; and you shall know that I am the Lord. (Ezekiel 13:21)
