All Souls’ Day, November 2, Pray for the Dead

2 Maccabees 12:44-45

44 For had he not expected the fallen to rise again, it would have been superfluous and foolish to pray for the dead,

45 whereas if he had in view the splendid recompense reserved for those who make a pious end, the thought was holy and devout. Hence, he had this expiatory sacrifice offered for the dead, so that they might be released from their sin.

Roman Martyrology

“On this day is observed the commemoration of the faithful departed, in which our common and pious Mother the Church, immediately after having endeavored to celebrate by worthy praise all her children who already rejoice in heaven, strives to aid by her powerful intercession with Christ, her Lord and Spouse, all those who still groan in purgatory, so that they may join as soon as possible the inhabitants of the heavenly city.”

Unshakeable Peace Serenity: Philippians 4:6-7.

Philippians 4:6-7

do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Serenity can’t be manufactured—it’s a gift from our heavenly Father. The Holy Spirit produces a sense of calm in believers who seek the Lord’s protection against anxiety. The Greek word translated as guard in today’s passage literally means “to garrison about.” God wraps hearts and minds in peace, effectively safeguarding both against all-consuming worry or fear. Notice that He doesn’t make problems go away—we may still be under pressure or prone to weep, but we’re cushioned against anxiety and surrounded by peace instead.

Heal me with your love. I bring to you, dearest Lord, my life and it is, my hopes and dreams, my struggles and pains, my fears, anxieties my hurts, my talents, my achievements, my disappointments and my sickness. I bring to you all whom I love. I entrust all to you and with confident faith I take heart; for you make all things new. Renew me, and heal me with your everlasting love.
In this I pray, Amen

Evil Spirits Access Through Sin : Hebrews 4:16

Hebrews 4:16-18 ESV

Jesus the Great High Priest

14 Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

Prayer for sanctifying, dedication and protection of a house/home. Adapted from a prayer by Dr. Preston T. Bailey, Jr

Father God, I come before you knowing that the blood of Jesus presents me righteous before You. It is in the name of my Savior, Good Shepherd and Lord that I speak sanctification, dedication and protection. Thank you, Lord.

By the blood of Jesus Christ, I bind every evil spirit that is in this room and command them to flee right now and go where the Lord Jesus Christ sends them. I renounce and reject any inch of this house and property that has been yielded or surrendered unto Satan and by faith I take it back and surrender it to the Lord Jesus Christ.

By faith, I claim that this room is covered under the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ and no evil spirit can enter it.
