Our new Bibles are here for the Blanket Ministry's 4th season, thanks to my church.
300 so far with 200 more coming. . .
This is our first recipient for this 4th season
He smiled so nicely the whole time we talked. Then he stops for the camera!
We gave him a sleeping pad and three blankets. . .one to lay on, one to cover up with and a small one rolled up to use as a pillow. I thought if the man had nowhere to sleep but on the concrete, he should have more than one. He asked for the Bible.
When I looked at him, I thought of the words. . .
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."
Let's remember these words ourselves. . .
"Carry each other's burdens and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ."
Readers, would you please pray with me. . .
Dear Heavenly Father,
We ask your blessings on this 4th season of the Blanket Ministry. Please guide the weary and burdened ones to us and may they be blessed not only by the blankets and Bibles but by our friendship and by Your Love.
May the ones who take the Bibles, open it up to receive the gift of Your Words and may it go straight to their hearts. May their tired eyes see the beauty of hope, forgiveness, redemption, and salvation for those who do not have it. May they accept your son Jesus into their hearts and find the rest they desperately need in Him. And may they find the blessings of a home, a physical home with a roof over their heads and a bed to lay in, but more than that, an eternal home that they may reside in for all eternity with You.
For those out there with addiction, we pray in the name of Jesus for those chains holding them in bondage to be broken once and for all, whether it be from Your miraculous healing or leading them to a place and people who can help them achieve the freedom.
We also pray for those who have mental issues, bad memories, hurts from others, to be healed of the painful thoughts in their head and may the broken hearts be healed.
May they take the gift of your Word and accept it into their heart and feel for the first time real healing, real hope, real mercy and grace, real rest.
Thank you Father, may Your will be done.
In Jesus Name,
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."
