Prayer: Divine Healer, move through every part of our body and our mind dissolving all feelings, thoughts, and frustrations. Sweep away all impatience, struggle and suffering that reside in our souls. With Your Great Love, turn our frustrations into inspiration and enthusiastic action. Help to steer us in the direction where our actions will be actualized to Your Glory. Amen.
Westminster Shorter Catechism Question #13: Did our first parents continue in the estate wherein they were created?
Answer: Our first parents, being left to the freedom of their own will, fell from the estate wherein they were created, by sinning against God.
Ah yes, the story of Adam and Eve and the serpent and the fruit. Also known as the Fall of Humans. Why did Adam and Eve fall? Because God gave them (and us) free will…. Freedom of their own will. God loves us enough so that we can make our own choices and decisions. Although as the Genesis reading states, sometimes our choices and decisions are the pits. Yet God loved us enough to not let us remain broken with our bad decisions and choice… God gave us Jesus Christ so that we might have eternal life. All our sins are forgiven. How neat is that!
Prayer: Jesus, You are the carpenter who mends broken bodies, broken souls, and broken relationships. Help us to mend, restore and repair bodies, souls, and relationships, beginning with my relationship with You and following to those who need You presence the most this day. Amen.
