Please Lord

Please Lord Show me how to be strong

Make sure I always have clothes to put on my back

To always put food on mt table

With your grace my problems shall be easy to face

Help me Jesus

(A Poetic Prayer)

Help me Jesus, for I have turned to hate.

Please Jesus, do not let damnation be my fate.

Help me Jesus, I am not evil, yet still,

My enemies I desire to kill.

Help me Jesus, teach me to dread.

The blood of my enemies that I wish to shed.

Help me Jesus, fear of my hatred is real.

Turn me away from this hate that I feel.

Help me Jesus, I do not wish to feel such hate.

Please turn me away from it before it is too late.

Help me Jesus, take the sword from my hand.

I shall do whatever you demand.

Help me Jesus, this hatred I feel must end.

Make it so that my enemy can become my friend.

Help me Jesus, for I know very well,

If I give in to this hate in perdition I will dwell.

Help me Jesus, fill my mind with thoughts of peace.

Then this hate I feel will surely cease.

Help me Jesus, a loving person I could be

If you, Jesus, would please help me. 

Do Not Judge

Do not judge anyone, no matter what they do.

If you judge someone God will bring the same judgment on you.

Though against a person you may hold a grudge,

That person you still should not judge.

Though judging others may give you pleasure,

Remember you will be judged yourself in the same measure.

If you judge another person’s act,

Make sure your act itself is intact.

If flaws in someone’s personality are in your sight,

Make sure everything about you is right.

Judging others when you are not perfect shows no wit.

If you are not perfect and judge others, you are a hypocrite.

If you want God’s grace do not judge others.

God will bless you if you do not judge your sisters and brothers. 

Do Good to Please God

Please The Lord

Doing charitable deeds to please men is wrong to do.

If you do this, The Lord shall not reward you.

Do not do good for show to your brethren.

Do not do good to be seen by other men.

The Lord will not reward those who do good to boast.

But, he will reward those who secretly do it the most.

When you do good deeds, do not sound a trumpet before thee.

Secretly do good and the Lord will

But now in Christ Jesus you who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.”

 Play Song

Brought Near by His Blood

After Christ upon the cross was dead,

His side was pierced and his blood was shed.

Because of sin, the lord demanded a blood sacrifice.

And the blood of Jesus brought us new life.

Yea, Christ shed blood for the good of all men.

His blood did wash away all sin.

And even those who did not believe,

The cleansing of sin they did receive.

And those whom God, they did not fear.

To God, the blood of Christ brought them near.


The  Unforgiven  Sin Play Song

The Sin the Lord disapproves of the most,

Is to speak against the Holy Ghost.

If you do this, no matter how righteously you live,

This is a sin the Lord will not forgive.

For if you want to be free of sin,

You must listen to the Holy  Ghost you have within.

To speak against the Son of man is surely a sin.

However, it is one that shall be forgiven unto men.

The sin of speaking against the Holy Spirit is an unpardonable one.

It shall not be forgiven in this world or the world to come

(1John 3:4-9 AV)

Sin and the Child of God play song

Sin and the Child of God

If you commit sin, you are guilty of lawlessness for sure.

When you commit sin, you transgress against the law.

He, who willfully commits sin, is of the devil.

The devil takes evil, to its highest level.

If you are born of God, then you should not sin.

As a child, you must be born again.

If you commit sin, you have not seen Him.

If you commit sin, neither do you know Him.

Although Jesus died to cleanse all sin;

You should not commit sin, over and over again.

For if a true child of God you wish to be,

Then my brethren, you must strive, to be sin free. 


(1 Corinthians 11:27-31 AV)

Examine Yourself

Play Song

We must examine ourselves, before we partake in Communion.

We must be sure, that with Jesus we have a good union.

If we are not worthy to eat the bread or drink from the cup;

When we are dead, to heaven, we shall not be lifted up.

Your own self , you must judge,

Then against you God may not hold a grudge,

If you are not worthy you sin against the body of Christ indeed,

That is something you do not need,

However, if worthy do eat the bread and drink from the cup,

To heaven your soul shall be lifted up.

You want to be one of those branches, no doubt.

To be blessed, abide in Jesus is what you must do.

Abide in Jesus and he will abide in you.

For if in Jesus you do not abide,

When you do not abide in Jesus you will feel his ire.

Like a withered branch you may be cast into the fire.

Abide in Jesus; as a branch much fruit you will bear.

You will be joined with Jesus; he will treat you with care.

When you abide in Jesus and his words you heed.

Jesus shall give you all that you need.

Things you need him to do shall be done.

So abide in Jesus and you shall always be fine.

Believers Are Salt and Light

As a believer, God considers you the salt of the earth.

As a believer, to God you have great worth.

However, do not let the salt lose its flavor.

Keep it flavor that men can savor.

Salt that loses flavor has not good taste.

It cannot help spread the word of God, it is a waste.

You are also the light of the world as well.

The word of God, to others, you must tell.

Let your light shine before men.

Show the good works of God to your brethren.

Let not condemnation be your brethren’s plight.

Remember, you are the salt and the light.

Adultery Without Sex

To Jesus, Lusting for someone is not smart.

If you do, you have committed adultery in your heart.

Do not lust for anyone you are not married to.

Lusting for anyone but your spouse is wrong to do.

Stay faithful to your spouse for your own sake.

The Beatitudes

And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him:

 “And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are you, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.”


The Beatitudes

Jesus stood upon the mountain and spoke to the multitudes.

He would say words that would influence their attitudes.

These words were called the beatitudes.

He spoke to the men and their wives.

The beatitudes were words that would influence their lives.

The way to salvation Jesus did preach.

The way of the Lord, he did teach.

Jesus spoke the beatitudes for all to hear.

He taught them that only God should they fear.

For those who wanted to escape condemnation on judgment day,

Listening to the beatitudes was the way.

For no matter what people may do or say,

The Lord will be with you all the way.

For against you weapons shall surly rise.

However, if you are a servant of the Lord have no fear.

He will make the weapons that rise against you disappear.

Bearing Others’ Burdens

The strong should bear the burdens of the weak.

The powerful should help the meek.

To help your neighbor is for your edification indeed.

Therefore to help your neighbor you should feel the need.

The Lord certainly does command,

You must give your neighbors a helping hand.

If you appreciate the prosperity God has given you,

Share it with your neighbors is what you should do.

God does not want us to be selfish and greedy.

God wants us to help the needy.

If you have a lot of something then share it with others.

God wants us to help our sisters and brothers…

If you have much and you give to those who have less,

You are one that God will

The Greatest Gift

The greatest gift one can give is love.

To love and be loved is the key;

To having a good life and being happy.

When you are feeling low, love can give you a lift.

According to God, love is the greatest gift.

Do not fear men, though your body they can kill.

Love Your Enemies

(Matthew 5:43)

If you have enemies you should show them love.

If you do you will be rewarded by God in heaven above.

Though your enemies may curse and persecute you,

Hating your enemy is the wrong thing to do.

Though thoughts of hate may be in your head,

You should ignore them and love your enemy instead.

If you do not love your enemies then you should.

Though your enemies hate you, still treat them good.

Though evil things about you your enemies might say.

Though they spitefully use you, for them you should pray.

Love for your enemies will not be in vain.

For you God will bring fourth the rain.

Though you your enemies may despise.

On the good and the evil God makes the sun rise.

If you show love to your enemies, God will see.

God will reward you and like him, perfect you will be.

If you show love to your enemy instead of hate

Becoming close to God will be your fate.

If your belief in God is true and real

Then love for your enemies is what you should feel.

Jesus told Nicodemus, “Believe in me and you I shall cherish.

Believe Jesus came so that the world he would save.

Believe he died to clean our sins and arose from his grave.

You must turn from sin and unholy behavior.

You must truly believe Jesus is your savior.

For God so loved the world he gave his only begotten son.

Jesus came to save the world and it will be done.

For to enter the kingdom of God when we leave this earth,

We must be born of water and spirit and have new birth.

The Spiritual War

Although we walk in the flesh, we must fight a spiritual war.

For in these times, we need to fight against evil, ever more.

All disobedience to God, we must avenge.

To the disobedient, in Gods behalf, we must get revenge.

All thoughts of obedience to Christ, we must bring into captivity.

Fighting the spiritual war, must be our daily activity.

Yea brethren, we must fight evil for sure.

We must be stead fast, in fighting the spiritual war.

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd gives his life for the sheep.
