Prayer Theme: Core prayers plus Suffering and Persecution
Bible Reading: Psalm 65
Book of Truth: 5th August, 2013
Please note: Last week we stayed at home, and read the prayers at a pre-appointed time – thus still praying as a group. This week, my daughter managed to teach us how to download an app. that enabled us to conference call. This was a big ask for some of us. A few members do not have computers or smart phones, so they did the same as last week – prayed at home in unison with us. It was good to still see each other, even though navigating new technology was hard and not smooth first go. This week’s host randomly selected a Bible reading and one reading from the Book of Truth. Because of the current situation, we created a new theme that we will pray each week -‘ Suffering and Persecution’. It really felt a blessed time. There is a special bond between people who pray together. We had missed seeing each other although, in no matter what format, we do believe that when two or three gather in His Name, Jesus is there.

Thanksgiving for LIberation
2 Shout joyfully to God, all the earth; sing of his glorious name; give him glorious praise.
3 Say to God: “How awesome your deeds! Before your great strength your enemies cringe. 4 All the earth falls in worship before you; they sing of you, sing of your name!”
5 Come and see the works of God, awesome in deeds before the children of Adam.
6 He changed the sea to dry land; through the river they passed on foot.There we rejoiced in him,7 who rules by his might forever,
His eyes are fixed upon the nations. Let no rebel rise to challenge!
8 Bless our God, you peoples; loudly sound his praise, 9 Who has kept us alive and not allowed our feet to slip. 10 You tested us, O God, tried us as silver tried by fire.
11You led us into a snare; you bound us at the waist as captives.
12 You let captors set foot on our neck; we went through fire and water;
then you led us out to freedom.
13 I will bring burnt offerings to your house;to you I will fulfill my vows,
14 Which my lips pronounced and my mouth spoke in my distress.
15 Burnt offerings of fatlings I will offer you and sacrificial smoke of rams; I will sacrifice oxen and goats.
16 Come and hear, all you who fear God, while I recount what has been done for me. 17 I called to him with my mouth; praise was upon my tongue.
18 Had I cherished evil in my heart, the Lord would not have heard. 19 But God did hear and listened to my voice in prayer.
20 Blessed be God, who did not reject my prayer and refuse his mercy.

When you defend My Word, you will be deemed to be cruel, unkind and lacking in sympathy to those who do not believe in God
5 August 2013 @ 6:33pm
My dearly beloved daughter, how I weep with sadness when I see the terrible division which looms within My Church on Earth. The bitterness of My Agony is eased though, by those who truly love Me and who already feel concern for the way in which My Body is being treated.
You must never feel the need to accept any deed, action or words which are against Me.If you feel uncomfortable with what you witness, within my Church, by those who swear that they are in union with Me, when they desecrate My Body, you must follow your heart. I Am with you every second of this great apostasy and for those who will continue to call out to Me, I will open your eyes to the Truth, so that you will remain true to Me.
The time is almost upon you now. The doors of My Church will soon be closed to those who will insist on remaining loyal to the traditional practices of Christianity. These doors will be slammed in your faces when you bear witness to Me. Your faith will be ridiculed, in the most cunning way, so that when you defend My Word, you will be deemed to be cruel, unkind and lacking in sympathy to those who do not believe in God.
You will be scolded if you are a sacred servant of Mine and you will be made to answer for your allegiance to Me. Gather now, all of you. I demand that you do not deny Me. I will protect you, so that you can serve Me. I will help you by lifting your burden. All the Graces of Heaven will be poured down upon you.
Warning to Priests:
I will cut down all those of you who follow the false church – the church of the beast – when it is presented to you. Follow this new church and you will be selling your souls to the beast. Instead of saving souls, in My Name, you will be responsible for handing them over to eternal Hell.
I am telling you the Truth now, so that you are given ample time to prepare for this day, as it is not far away.
