WORD OF THE DAY – Thursday 12 November 2015

For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Lord GOD; so turn, and live.” (Ezekiel 18:32 ESV)

Ибо Я не хочу смерти умирающего, говорит Господь Бог; но обратитесь, и живите! (Иезекииль 18:32 Russian)

Hear our prayers on this new day O LORD our God and dear Father in heaven ~ we confess that we have often turned our eyes off the prize that waits for every faithful believer. Stir up within our hearts the realization that no church can repent for my sins, nor any governor, president, king, judge, or any preacher, rabbi, priest or pope. We alone stand before your perfect and holy presence in need of forgiveness. Give us a revived and clean heart and spirit as we turn from sin in sincere repentance. Forgive us of our sins as we forgive others. We earnestly pray in the precious name of Jesus, who took our sins upon himself at the cross where he died. Amen.

Death is only a door
Set in a garden wall.
On quiet hinges it gives at dusk,
When the thrushes call.
Along the lintel are green leaves,
Beyond, the light lies still;
Very weary and willing feet
Go over that sill.
There is nothing to trouble any heart,
Nothing to hurt at all,
Death is only an old door
In a garden wall.

Death Is A Door
