Lent is an important season in the Church's year. Every
year Christians use Lent to prepare themselfs for the
death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, on Easter Sunday
When Is Lent
Lent is the forty days before Easter. Christians do not
include Sundays in the forty days because they celebrate
Jesus's resurrection every Sunday. Lent begins on
Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday.
Who are kept by the power of God through faith for
salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little
while, if need be, you have been grieved by various
trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much
more precious than gold that perishes, though it is
tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and
glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, whom having
not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him,
yet believing, you rejoice with inexpressible and
full of glory.
1 Peter 1:5-8
Lord, being patient isn't easy. We all have agendas
for when things should happen, and I really get
frustrated when they don't. Patience will come to me,
I know when I'm truly surrendered to You. So here
I am, God. Do what You want in my life, in Your time,
in Your way.
Atheism is a widespread belief in our modern
civilization. Most people denied the existence
of a God, to justify the creation of our planet
and life on it.
Religious myths have disappeared under scientific
discoveries and our technological progress.
Atheism seems to be the most obvious attitude,
with the vision many have today.
However, new scientific discoveries based on the
accurate translation of the meaning of dreams
reveal many truths that contrdict the atheistic
The unconscious mind that produces our dreams
prossesses an undoubtable wisdom that cannot be
justified unless we admit that it comes from a
This wisdom cannot come from the ignorant human
because the human being is basically a primate
with only a few characteristics. He has inherited a
wild and primitive concience in the biggest part of
his brain. Even the tiny part of his brain that was
evolved through consciousness is under-developed
and one sided.
Dreams are not disorganized images without meaning.
They contain precious guidance and crucial information
about our psychical state, the external reality, and the
furture. The value of this information is confirmed
when we follow the unconscious guidance in dreams.
We find solutions that we could not imagine for
problems that seem impossible to solve.
The atheistic mentality was in fact formed by the wild
side of our conscience, which keeps intering in our
human conscience of many religions. It transformed
our world into a place where violence and immorlity
prevail; hidden under the camouflage of hypocisy
and futility. Many proven scientific truths clearly
indicate that atheism is based on illusions. We
indispensably need to admit the existence of a creator.
Father, you made us in your own image and redeemed us
through your son Jesus. Look with compassion on the whole
human family, take away the arrogance and hated which
infect our hearts, break down the walls that separate us and
unite us in bonds of love, and work through our struggle and
confusion to accomplish your purpose on earth. In your good
time, all nations and races may serve you in harmony around
your heavenly throne through Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN
The "stairway" rises "Heaven" high
The "steps" are dark and steep
In weariness we climb them
As we stumble, fall and weep...
And many times we falter
Alone the "path of prayer."
Wondering if You hear us
And if You really care...
Oh, give us some assurance.
Restore our faith anew
So we can keep on climbing
The "stairs of Prayer" to You.
For we are weak and wavering
Uncertain and unsure
And only meeting You in prayer
Can help us to endure
All life's trials and troubles
It's sickness, pain and sorrow
And give us strength and courage
To face and meet tomorrow
