Prayer for Sinners
A reading from Saint John’s First Letter 5, 13 – 21:
“I write these things to you so that you may know that you have eternal life, you who believe in the name of the Son of God. And we have this confidence in him, that if you ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in regard to whatever we ask, we know that what we have asked him for is ours. If anyone sees his brother sinning, if the sin is not deadly, he should pray to God and he will give him life. This is only for those whose sin is not deadly. There is such a thing as deadly sin, about which I do not say that you should pray. All wrongdoing is sin, but there is sin that is not deadly.
We know that no one begotten by God sins; but the one begotten by God he protects, and the evil one cannot touch him. We know that we belong to God, and the whole world is under the power of the evil one. We also know that the Son of God has come and has given us discernment to know the one that is true. And we are in the one who is true, in his Son, Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life. Children be on your guard against idols.”
We had a fairly nice day on Saturday with sunshine for a good part of the day. A few snowflakes fell but just a little. It is cold during the night so it is great to have your house heated. I have problems with my van. The tyres are just about finished and one tyre in the back is completely finished. It cannot keep the air for more than a day. If some of you could help me to buy the tyres I would be very happy indeed. May the Lord bless you all.
Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Redeemer given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words,
“I bless you My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters who pray every day. I call you to pray for sinners every day so that they can stop sinning and follow the commandments of My Heavenly Father. If I live in your heart, then I will give you very special graces to help you avoid sin and to always remain close to Me. If you live in Me, then whatever you ask Me in your name, you will receive all that you need. There are many people who sin in the world, for the world is in the power of the evil one. I have conquered the evil one so if you are in Me, you too will conquer him. If you see anyone sinning, then pray for that person that he or she may have the strength to stop that and to follow My path.
So if the evil one should tempt you, you have to discern who is the one tempting you and when you find out that it is the devil, then call upon Me and I will chase the evil one away. You know, My friends, that I came into the world to take away your sins and to teach you what you should do to follow Me daily. Those who are not with Me, are with the devil and live in darkness and sin. I am your Lord and what I teach is truth so follow Me and you will have eternal life in heaven forever. I bless you all.”
