TOGETHER

Dear all,

coming together is a Beginning


standing together is A SIGN of unity,


keeping together is Strength


marching together is Progress


singing together is the force


working together is Success


watching together is enjoyment


sharing together is care


defending together is love


In short, together we make the Nation strong.

A TWO WAY CONVERSATION of THE LORD'S PRAYER

This  is  a  neat  one. . . . .  very  interesting !

A  TWO  WAY  CONVERSATION  of  THE  LORD'S  PRAYER

-----
Read out in a Church in Australia

This is in two parts,  the prayer (in blue type) and GOD in response  (in red type) . It is very, very good. 
********************************************************************************************* 

Our Father Who Art In Heaven.
Yes?
Don't interrupt me. I'm praying.
But -- you called ME!
Called you? No, I didn't call you. I'm praying.
Our Father who art in Heaven.
There -- you did it again!
Did what?
Called ME. You said, "Our Father who art in Heaven" Well, here I am.. What's on your mind?
But I didn't mean anything by it.  I was, you know, just saying my prayers for the day. I always say the Lord's Prayer. It makes me feel good, kind of like fulfilling a duty. Well, all right.
Go on.
Okay, Hallowed be thy name .
Hold it right there. What do you mean by that?
By what?
By "Hallowed be thy name"?
It means, it means . . good grief, I don't know what it means. How in the world should I know? It's just a part of the prayer.
By the way, what does it mean?
It means honored, holy, wonderful.
Hey, that makes sense..
I never thought about what 'hallowed' meant before.
Thanks.
Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.
Do you really mean that?
Sure, why not?
What are you doing about it?

Doing? Why, nothing, I guess.
I just think it would be kind of  neat if you got control, of everything down here like you have up there.. We're kinda in a mess down here you know.
Yes, I know; but, have I got control of you?
Well, I go to church.
That isn't what I asked you. What about your bad temper?
You've really got a problem there, you know. And then there's the way you spend your money -- all on yourself. And what about the kind of books you read?
Now hold on just a minute! Stop picking on me! I'm just as good as some of the rest of those people at church!
Excuse ME.. I thought you were praying for my will to be done. If that is to happen, it will have to start with the ones
who are praying for it. Like you -- for example ....
Oh, all right. I guess I do have some hang-ups. Now that you mention it, I could probably name some others.
So could I.
I haven't thought about it very much until now, but I really would like to cut out some of those things. I would like to, you know, be really free.
Good. Now we're getting somewhere. We'll work together -- You and ME. I'm proud of You.
Look, Lord, if you don't mind, I need to finish up here. This is taking a lot longer than it usually does. Give us this day, our daily bread.
You need to cut out the bread.. You're overweight as it is.
Hey, wait a minute! What is this? Here I was doing my religious duty, and all of a sudden you break in and remind me of all my hang-ups.
Praying is a dangerous thing. You just might get what you ask for. Remember, you called ME -- and here I am. It's too late to stop now. Keep praying.  ( pause ... . ) Well, go on.
I'm scared to.
Scared? Of what?
I know what you'll say.
Try ME.
Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us.
What about Ann?
See? I knew it! I knew you would bring her up! Why, Lord, she's told lies about me, spread stories. She never paid back the money she owes me. I've sworn to get even with her!
But -- your prayer -- What about your prayer?
I didn't -- mean it...
Well, at least you're honest. But, it's quite a load carrying around all that bitterness and resentment isn't it?
Yes, but I'll feel better as soon as I get even with her. Boy, have I got some plans for her. She'll wish she had never been born.
No, you won't feel any better. You'll feel worse. Revenge isn't sweet. You know how unhappy you are --  Well, I can change that.
You can? How?
Forgive Ann. Then, I'll forgive you; And the hate and the sin, will be Ann's problem -- not yours. You will have settled the problem as far as you are concerned.
Oh, you know, you're right. You always are. And more than I want revenge, I want to be right with You . . (sigh). All right, all right . ...I forgive her.
There now! Wonderful! How do you feel?
Hmmmm. Well, not bad. Not bad at all! In fact, I feel pretty great! You know, I don't think I'll go to bed uptight tonight. I haven't been getting much rest, you know.

Yeah, I know. But, you're not through with your prayer, are you?
Go on.
Oh, all right. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Good! Good!   I'll do that. Just don't put yourself in a place where you can be tempted.
What do you mean by that?
You know what I mean.
Yeah. I know.
Okay. Go ahead. Finish your prayer..
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.
Do you know what would bring me glory -- What would really make me happy?
No, but I'd like to know. I want to please you now.. I've really made a mess of things. I want to truly follow you.. I can see now how great that would be. So, tell me . . . How do I make you happy?
YOU  just did.

STAND UP


STAND UP
STAND UP AND SPEAK UP
YOU CAN'T JUST FEEL THAT IT DOES NOT EXIST
IT WILL COME BACK TO HAUNT YOU
NO MATTER HOW YOU THINK
AND RESPONSE TO IT
STAND UP AND MAKE A STAND
SPEAK OUT FROM YOUR INNER VOICE
GOD IS INSIDE YOU
TAKE YOUR COURAGE TO SPEAK UP
TRUST GOD WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU ALONE
YOU MUST SPEAK WHAT YOU HONESTLY THINK IT'S RIGHT
DO NOT BOW DOWN TO EXTERNAL PRESSURE
OR OPPRESSION
SPEAK OUT WHAT YOU THINK IS RIGHT
YOU ARE NOT HERE TO PLEASE THE PEOPLE
WANT TO SPEAK THE TRUTH
AND LET THE TRUTH SET YOU FREE
NOTHING IS FREE
DO NOT BE AFRAID
DO NOT LET OTHERS MANIPULATE YOU
DON'T BE A PART OF IT
IF YOU DO NOT FEEL COMFORTABLE WITH IT
WHAT IS IMPORTANT IS TO MAKE YOUR STAND CLEAR
WHAT  GOES AROUND WILL COME AROUND
SPEAK UP
EVEN IF YOU ARE STANDING ALONE
LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD
YOU MAY BE RIGHT
IF OTHER CAN'T PROVE YOU WRONG
LET  TIME REVEALS THE TRUTH
THE TRUTH WILL EVENTUALLY SURFACED
NO MATTER HOW STRONG ARE YOUR OPPONENTS
AND HOW MIGHTY THEY ARE
THEY WILL BE WEAKENING AND COLLAPSING
EVENTUALLY THEY WILL DESTROY THEMSELVES
LET PATIENCE AND ENDURANCE COMPLETE THE TASK
HISTORY WILL REPEAT  ITSELF
IS JUST A MATTER OF TIME
DO NOT LET GO OF THIS HOPE
TIME WILL COME
JUSTICE WILL BE DELIVERED EVENTUALLY
WALK BY FAITH 
AND NOT SIGHT 
TRUST THE ONE ABOVE
KEEP PRAYING AND STAY ALIVE WITH SUCH A HOPE
REMEMBER TO STAND UP
AND SAY WHAT IS RIGHT

GOD IS WITH YOU

Be humble and submit to Him,
He does not control you,
but guides you,
so that you won't feel weak and frighten.


Open your heart to Him
let your heart be led by Him,
He knows the reason,
you are worried and lacking in something,
no matter what situation you are in.


He wants you to know He is a mighty and Living God,
Who always care for you,
Because of His promises and Words to our ancestors,
Never ignore or underestimate a faith,
Which can make you mighty and strong,
So long as you abide to Him.


For He is your only hope and rock,
Who can make a turn and stop the evil one for you,
Regardless how things go overwhelmingly wrong,
Because He cares and loves,
Who wants you to live and enjoy all the fruits of faith.


Let Him guide you and
Let your mind be at perfect rest,
Have faith in Him,
That for you, He knows what is best for you,
And He has only the best for you.


For Him, who gives you the life,
Wants you to live in a triumphant victorious way He initially designed for you,
Before you were even born.


Be abide to Him,
He will give you the strength you need,
To conquer every barrier you encounter each of your day.


Be bold and listen to Him,
And not you.
Take up your courage to accept this truth and,
Let your soul be glad and rejoice.


Let God speaks to your heart,
and hear His calming voice.
He wants you to understand,
That there is nothing you should be afraid of.


This is what faith is all about,
Trusting Him that He will never abandon you,
But always be close and near you,
He is always in your heart.


Be faithful,
Live a life that is bold and full of joys,
Let His Spirit's power be in you,
So that you can achieve it effortlessly,
Through His work and not your work.


Glorify Him and not you,
So don't raise any doubt,
and no extra thought.

Because He is behind you,
The one and truly loved.
Accept His blessing with thanks.
