HAPPY NEW YEAR 2017: Christ In You + PRAYER : Lead On, Oh King Eternal!







2017 Is The Year New!
2016 Is The Year Old!
Yesteryear's Bad Habits Are 
Dross
AND
This Year's Good Habits Are 
Pure Gold!

The God Of Heaven 
Provides For His People!
The gods Of The Earth Cannot!
The Faith Of Jesus Christ 
Gives Us Victory Over Sin!
Faith In The Pope
Priests, Pastors
Politicians 
AND
Princes
Presidents 
AND 
Purveyors Of The Botch
Assuredly 
Will Not!
Cannot!

Trust In The Lord Is Not Dead
BUT
Neglecting To Pray
Is A Sure Way To Kill It!
Leaning On The Everlasting Arms
Is Key To Human Survival
AND
Christ In You
The Hope Of Glory
Should Be Paramount
Coloring Our World View
AND
Being
Our Most Prized Lot!

God Does Not Change
BUT
Man Must
To Gain Eternity
Is The Gospel Truth!
Jesus Saves!
He Purchased New Life Passports For Mankind
So
Trust The Word, I Beseech You
Be Ye Rich, Poor
Free, Slave
Youth Or Aged!
Proof Is On The Gospel Page!

We Sin
AND
Christ Cries
For
We Crucify Him Afresh!
So Let's Go To The Cross
Uttering Heartfelt Prayers Of Repentance
Filled With True Remorse
AND
Plead
With Our Heavenly Father
To Direct Our Footsteps
Helping Us To Chart
A "To Victory!" Course!

2017 Is The Year New!
2016 Is The Year Old!
AND
We Are One Year
One Month
One Week
One Day
One Hour
One Minute
One Second
One Moment
From
Old Things Forever Passing Away
AND
A New Heaven
AND
A New Earth
Holding Eternal Sway
AND
For This, Dear Ones
Let Us Pray ...



Lead On, Oh King, Eternal
You Who For Us
The Victory Won
You Who Shed Blood
Sin
Hell
Death And The Grave To Conquer
You Who Is God's Only Begotten Son!

You Gave Up Glory
For A Cold Dark Grave!
You Gave Up Glorious Robes
For Wretched Rags Of The Slave!
You Gave Up Songs Of Praise
For Sounds Of The Crazed
Just To Save All Who
Will Willingly Utter
Father,
Please Save Us!
Help Us To Walk In Your Blessed Ways!

Father, We Believe!
Please Cleanse Us Of Unbelief!
Father,
Your Great Gift We Gladly Receive!
Protect Us From The Salvation Thief!
Help Us To Live In Godly Fear
And
Turning To The  Man Of Sin
A Dutiful-To-Christ Stone-Deaf Ear!

Help Us To Walk In Your Light
So That At The Appointed Hour
Our Measure Of Faith
Shall Behold
The Most Glorious Sight!

Help Us To Live True
For, Father
We Dearly Desire
In Our Own Flesh
With Undimmed Eyesight
To Behold You!

Help Us, Lord
To Shed Our Self-Made
Self-righteous
Dirty Garments
So That We Will Gain
The White Linen Robes 
Of
Christ's Righteousness!

Please Provide To Use Eye-Salve
To Heal Our Blinded-By-Sin Eyes
And
By Your Grace, Lord
And
Never-Failing Mercy
Help Us To Purchase Of You
That Inestimable Treasure
Eternal Gold
Tried
In The Fire Of Affliction
Blessed To Us Of Jesus' Faith
Because, Lord
We Truly Love You!

Through Grace
Faith
Love
Hope
Trust
Obedience
And
Wisdom's Understanding
With Knowledge Of The Holy,  Lord
Your Children With This World May Cope!
Help Us To Lift Up The Fallen
Feed The Hungry
Provide Holy Insight Into Truth
For Those Who Are Not
The Willful Blind!
Help Us To Clothe The Naked Both Physically
And
In Sheets Made Of The Truth Of The Gospel
As We Ourselves Walk
With Feet Shod In The Gospel
That Speaks Everlasting Peace
And
Eternal Life!

Father,
Help Us To Guard Jealousy
Our Hold On Salvation!
Grant Us A Death-Grip
On Our Life In Jesus Christ
And
Let Our Eyes Blaze With Hope
With Faith's Sight
In Anticipation
Of
Christ's Soon Coming Glory!

Lord, Help To Stand
So That
Our Faith Today
Shall Glory In The Morrow
When We Shall See Jesus
In Whose Holy Matchless Name
We Make Our Petitions In This New Year
On This New Day!
Remember Us, Lord
Is Our Daily Prayer
And
We Love You True
Is What We In Faith Say!
Help To Do As You Say
And
Not What Eye Servants Do
For We Are You Servants
And
Desire Our Works To Bless You!
AMEN!
