Weekly Reading Assignment:

(Acts 7-8)

I have read my weekly reading assignment for this week

 

Ending Prayer:

 

Lord God Almighty, we worship Your holy Name always and forever. Your name is holy to us and we honor it. We will worship You and honor You Name too; thank You Father for giving us Your Son Jesus to die for our sins, and we praise Him for it. Help us to honor You through Your Holy Spirit today in Jesus' name. Bless all who believe in You and that You sent Your Son Jesus to die for us at the right time. Thank You for giving us wisdom to understand the difference between worshipping You and Your Name. We honor Your Name, as we say hallowed be Thy Name. AMEN.

Scripture Reading 

(Psalm 141:1-10)

 



Lord, I cry unto thee: make haste unto me; give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto thee.

Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.

Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.

Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practise wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties.

Let the righteous smite me; it shall be a kindness: and let him reprove me; it shall be an excellent oil, which shall not break my head: for yet my prayer also shall be in their calamities.

When their judges are overthrown in stony places, they shall hear my words; for they are sweet.

Our bones are scattered at the grave's mouth, as when one cutteth and cleaveth wood upon the earth.

But mine eyes are unto thee, O God the Lord: in thee is my trust; leave not my soul destitute.

Keep me from the snares which they have laid for me, and the gins of the workers of iniquity.

10 Let the wicked fall into their own nets, whilst that I withal escape.

Weekly Praise: Thank You Jesus


Praise You, Jesus, You are the King of Kings. Praise You, Jesus, You are the King of creation. Praise You, Jesus, You are King of the universe.  Praise You, Jesus, You are the Lord of lords. Praise You, Jesus, You are the Almighty.

 

Let's Hallow His name by rehearsing Who He is:

 

Jehovah -NISSI [yah-way-nee-see]: "The Lord Our Banner" (Exodus 17:15

), where banner is understood to be a rallying place. This name commemorates the desert victory over the Amalekites in Exodus 17.


Now that is a good reason to praise God, amen. The Lord is our banner, the Lord take care of us by encamping His angles around and over us.

ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS

Questions:

 

1).     What do it means to hollow God's name?

I believe it means to honor, respect, and cherish Him and His name; also to praise Him in the highest regard. It also means not to use His Name in vain no matter what.

2).    What do hallowed means?

It means to consecrate or set apart as being holy; to venerate as being holy, and it means to give respect to.
3).    Does the Bible speak of His Name as being holy?

Yes it does! In Psalm 7:17 says, "I will praise the Lord according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the Lord most high." (Luke 11:2). There are so many other scriptures that tell us to honor God's Name and Who He is.
4).    Is holiness a prime characteristic of God?

Yes, holiness is a prime characteristic of who God really is, and why He desire us to be holy as He is.

5).    According to OT what are we asking when we say those words? "Hallowed be Thy Name,"

Jesus taught us this prayer through His disciples and we should be asking that God reveal His glory through His name in this earth. The OT patriarch honored God's name as well as who He was.  This is giving God the glory He deserve.
6).    What should we be asking for when we pray this phrase?

We should be asking for God to receive glory, honor, and praise. We should be exalting Him as this Psalm says, "I will extol the Lord at all times; his praise will always be on my lips.  My soul will boast in the Lord; let the afflicted hear and rejoice.  Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt his name together.  (Psalm. 34:1-3). I like that word "boast!"
7).       According to the Bible does God deserve to be hallow? Explain.

Yes, and yes again!!  Personally speaking, I know He does. God has showed Himself to be the One and only true God in this universe. Since God changed my life there has been awesome things happen to help me know that God deserve the glory, honor, and all the praise. AMEN.
8).    Why does the Lord's Prayer contain this phrase?

In the Lord's Prayer, the phrase, "Hallowed be Your name" is appropriate, because not only is God holy, but His name is holy too.
9).    Is God's Name Holy as He is?

Yes, I believe it is! The Bible tell us that God's Name is holy, and should be honored just as Himself. That is powerful, amen!!
10).  What do the word consecrated means?

It means to make or declare (something, typically a church) sacred; dedicate formally to a religious or divine purpose. "the present Holy Trinity church was consecrated in 1845" (in Christian belief) make (bread or wine) into the body or blood of Christ. "they received the host but not the consecrated wine" ordain (someone) to a sacred office, typically that of bishop.

(Leviticus 22:2; Deuteronomy 28:58; Isaiah 29:23, 57:15; Ezekiel 36:23; Daniel 2:20; Matthew 6:9).
13).  How do we become holy as God is Holy?

The Lord took the initiative to pull us out of our former lifestyles. He saved us, cleansed us, and set us apart for righteousness. If we have believed in Christ for salvation, we have been washed by the regeneration of the Holy Spirit and set apart from the world for godliness (see Romans 12:2). We are holy because of Jesus Christ. We must live a holy life as well.

Prayer From The Bible:

The Prayer of Abraham

 

Genesis 18:16-33

 

16When the men got up to leave, they looked down toward Sodom, and Abraham walked along with them to see them on their way. 17Then the LORDsaid, "Shall I hide from Abraham what I am about to do? 18Abraham will surely become a great and powerful nation, and all nations on earth will be blessed through him. 19For I have chosen him, so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing what is right and just, so that the LORD will bring about for Abraham what he has promised him."

20Then the LORD said, "The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and their sin so grievous 21that I will go down and see if what they have done is as bad as the outcry that has reached me. If not, I will know."

22The men turned away and went toward Sodom, but Abraham remained standing before the LORD. 23Then Abraham approached him and said: "Will you sweep away the righteous with the wicked? 24What if there are fifty righteous people in the city? Will you really sweep it away and not spare the place for the sake of the fifty righteous people in it? 25Far be it from you to do such a thing -- to kill the righteous with the wicked, treating the righteous and the wicked alike. Far be it from you! Will not the Judge of all the earth do right?"

26The LORD said, "If I find fifty righteous people in the city of Sodom, I will spare the whole place for their sake."

27Then Abraham spoke up again: "Now that I have been so bold as to speak to the LORD, though I am nothing but dust and ashes, 28what if the number of the righteous is five less than fifty? Will you destroy the whole city because of five people?"

"If I find forty-five there," he said, "I will not destroy it."

29Once again he spoke to him, "What if only forty are found there?"

He said, "For the sake of forty, I will not do it."

30Then he said, "May the LORD not be angry, but let me speak. What if only thirty can be found there?"

He answered, "I will not do it if I find thirty there."

31Abraham said, "Now that I have been so bold as to speak to the LORD, what if only twenty can be found there?"

He said, "For the sake of twenty, I will not destroy it."

32Then he said, "May the LORD not be angry, but let me speak just once more. What if only ten can be found there?"

He answered, "For the sake of ten, I will not destroy it."

33When the LORD had finished speaking with Abraham, he left, and Abraham returned home.


Weekly Pattern: Praise

 

Praise is not the inevitable byproduct that comes when everything is going right in our lives; it is the driving force. Praise will get our focus where it needs to be—on God. If we start praising God in the middle of our problems, our problems will shrink so much that we'll hardly remember to bring them to God! We'll be so busy praising Him and thanking Him for His blessings that our problems will be an afterthought. In our prayer we must remember to praise Him more than asking Him for something.
