SAINT PAUL'S PRAYER

Emulating King David of The Old Testament, Saint Paul of Tarsus was the most Holy Spirit inspired and prolific scribe of The New Testament.

Attributed to writing at least 70% of all A.D. scriptures, Paul was a great example for all of us sinners.

Once a brutal murderer and persecutor of Christians, God forgave him by removing his physical eyesight and blessing him with a Divine Lense.

Always admitting his own sins and sharing them openly with all of his churches, nobody proselytized Christianity like Paul.

But as with all of us lovers of Our Blessed Lord, Paul had to suffer beatings, imprisonment, torture and multiple shipwrecks, to grow his faith & trust in God.

Forthcoming please find my adaption of Saint Paul's prayer, that Christine and I recite together as often as possible:

"My Blessed Christ Yeshua,
 
Trusting that all of my wounds of sin are removed and healed before I transition into your Paradise,

I humbly lay before you:

° my rejection of people

° my rejection of circumstances

° my anger

° my sarcasm

° my unforgiveness

° my need to impress

° my yearning to control

° my selfishness

° my paralytic perfectionism

° my occasional false victimhood

° as well as my impatience

And My Heavenly Father, I gladly give you ALL of:

° my very soul

° my mind

° my body ~ The Temple of The Holy Spirit

° my time
 
° my talents

° my treasure
 
You will never, ever have to take these gifts from me, for I adoringly give you ALL that I possess to be only what you want me to be.

All of the things that I once thought were so important are now gone from my life, so that I can embrace you right now in this present moment, my Savior + Redeemer Yeshua."
 
Please accept my 100% adoration, gratitude, trust, praise and heartfelt repentance for all of my life's sins including today's.

Amen."

God removed the chains of narcissistic and egotistic self-pride that Saint Paul initially imprisoned himself in.

His profound belief in the blessing of suffering and his trust in God’s perfect providence is declared soulfully, as he wrote in Romans 5:3-5 and Romans 8:28:

"We rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame."

We know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love Him and who are called according to His purpose for them."

GOD IS THE INFINITE CHAIN BREAKER!
