Jesus to Mankind Crusade Prayer Meeting on Wed. 6th April, 2022
Prayer Theme: Special Graces (Groups A&D)
Bible: 1Kings 22: 1-17
Book of Truth: 24 July, 2014
Thoughts: Our prayer theme today was ‘Special Graces’. In the Bible reading, the Kings of Israel and Judah were discerning whether to attack a certain city, which they believed should be theirs. The King of Judah told the King of Israel that they should consult prophets. 400 prophets then prophesied what the King of Israel wanted to hear: to attack and the Lord would be with them. The King of Judah implored his friend to find another prophet So they brought in Micaeah. He too, at first, seemed to go along with the other prophets. When the King reprimanded him, he answered:
“I see all Israel scattered on the mountains, like sheep without a shepherd, And the LORD saying, These have no master! Let each of them go back home in peace.”
We too, have leaders (secular and religious) who want only war. The prophet told the King of Israel the truth- that the result would be a people scattered, without a leader. If we consider that the Kings of Judah and Israel were two of the tribes of God’s Chosen people, it seems that people in the Church today are not being led correctly, they are scattered and like “sheep without a shepherd”. The Truth that Micaeah spoke was a “special grace” that God gave to His people, but it seems they were not inclined to listen to God’s Word. It shows us God’s great Love for His people.
The reading from the Book of Truth, adds to this theme of God’s Love. It affirms the theme of the Bible Reading and refers to ” the victims of cruel and senseless wars.“
Reading from the Bible
1Kings 22: 1-17
“I see all Israel
scattered on the mountains,
like sheep without a shepherd,
And the LORD saying,
These have no master!
Let each of them go back home in peace.”
Reading from the Book of Truth
My dear children of God, you must never forget how special you are in God’s Eyes, for He loves you all unconditionally. How He loves you is beyond your comprehension. He smiles when you smile. He laughs when you laugh. He weeps when you are blighted with pain and sorrow and He becomes enraged when you suffer persecution at the hands of others.
At this time in history, when hatred infests nations everywhere and when innocents are tortured, oppressed and killed, His Hand will reach out and punish the wicked. When humanity defies God by showing no regard for the Laws of God and, in particular, respect for the life of another human being, His Punishment will engulf the world. He, who shows no respect for human life, does not acknowledge God or His Divinity.
God is the Creator and Author of Life – He gives it and only He has the Authority to take it away. Oh how much sorrow there is at this time in His heavenly Kingdom, because of the aggression, which is fuelled by the evil one, against His Creation.
You must ask God to alleviate the suffering, which is caused in the world by men whose hearts are cold, angry and full of hatred. Those who inflict terror on others need your prayers. Please recite this Prayer to protect the weak and the innocent and to alleviate the horrors which man has to endure at this time.
Crusade Prayer (162) To protect the weak and the innocent:
O God, Father Almighty, please protect the weak and the innocent, who suffer at the hands of those with hatred in their hearts. Alleviate the suffering endured by Your poor helpless children.
Give them all the Graces they need to protect themselves from Your enemies. Fill them with courage, hope and charity, so that they can find it in their hearts to forgive those who torment them.
I ask You, dear Lord, my Eternal Father, to forgive those who defy the Law of Life and help them to see how much their actions offend You, so that they can amend their ways and seek solace in Your Arms. Amen.
Children, pray, pray, pray for the protection of those who suffer because of their allegiance to God, the Eternal Father, and for those who are the victims of cruel and senseless wars.
Your beloved Mother
