Oh Lord, could I have a bit , just a bit,
Of that great discernment you gave
When Solomon cried out to you?
For I, like he, seek a culture of justice.
You say, it is not just enough
To wish to bring back the lost,
I must discern their foolishness
And turn them to a wise path.
Oh, Holy Spirit, Jesus promised,
You would come and guide
Set Satan running to catch his tail
And save the Christian culture.
From an old Irish or
Whose origin I do not remember:
“Let me be a living fire,
glory, King of kings,
Fill my heart with pure desire,
Ever while I live.”
God Touched Me
by Frank Henrich April 15, 2007
God touched my
It came unexpectedly,
And suddenly now
My life is changed forever.
the world was only
What I could see,
But now I fully realize
The spirit world is alive.
God cares for little me
For He touched me,
In my sorrow and concern,
He reached out
He cares for me,
Little me, no great
Just an ordinary person,
How great is His love!
In church, I was taught
That God is spirit and alive,
And I hoped it was true,
Suddenly, I knew it was.
Oh! what a
It has made in my life,
Before, coping only with the seen,
Now, I am comforted by His
What is this life in the spirit?
How does it function?
Can it be defined?
Jesus, I need your help.
God used a yellow rose
And inner voice to awaken me,
I have a new horizon to search.
Has God awakened you?
If not, ask Him,
And when it happens,
Your vista will expand.
You will seek His face,
And learn to
His ways and how
They guide you.
It is like suddenly finding
that was invisible,
And it opens and bids
That you enter.
You enter and find,
A world where prayer,
Bible studies, and retreats,
Engage your mind.
You will come to
Understand that God is alive,
Your sleepy life
Will awaken to a new dawn.
Has God touched you
You say, "He has not."
Well ask Him for His touch
Have faith and He will touch you.

O L Y S C R I P T U R E
King David had died and his son Solomon had just been crowned king.
1 Kings 3:4-28 5 At Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream by night; and God said, "Ask! What shall I give you?"
6 And Solomon said: "You have shown great mercy to Your servant David my father, because he walked before You in truth,
in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart with You; You have continued this great kindness for him, and You have given
him a son to sit on his throne, as it is this day.
7 Now, O LORD my God, You have made Your servant king instead
of my father David, but I am a little child; I do not know how to go out or come in. 8 And Your servant is in the midst of
Your people whom You have chosen, a great people, too numerous to be numbered or counted. 9 Therefore give to Your servant
an understanding heart to judge Your people, that I may discern between good and evil. For who is able to judge this great
people of Yours?"
10 The speech pleased the LORD, that Solomon had asked this thing. 11 Then God said to
him: "Because you have asked this thing, and have not asked long life for yourself, nor have asked riches for yourself,
nor have asked the life of your enemies, but have asked for yourself understanding to discern justice, 12 behold, I have done
according to your words; see, I have given you a wise and understanding heart, so that there has not been anyone like you
before you, nor shall any like you arise after you. 16 Now two women who were harlots came to the king, (continued from column
on the left) and stood before him. 17 And one woman said, "O my lord, this woman and I dwell in the same house; and I
gave birth while she was in the house.
18 Then it happened, the third day after I had given birth, that this woman
also gave birth. And we were together; no one was with us in the house, except the two of us in the house. 19 And this woman's
son died in the night, because she lay on him. 20 So she arose in the middle of the night and took my son from my side, while
your maidservant slept, and laid him in her bosom, and laid her dead child in my bosom. 21 And when I rose in the morning
to nurse my son, there he was, dead. But when I had examined him in the morning, indeed, he was not my son whom I had borne."
22 Then the other woman said, "No! But the living one is my son, and the dead one is your son." And
the first woman said, "No! But the dead one is your son, and the living one is my son." Thus they spoke before the
king. 23 And the king said, "The one says, 'This is my son, who lives, and your son is the dead one'; and the other says,
'No! But your son is the dead one, and my son is the living one.'"
24 Then the king said, "Bring me
a sword." So they brought a sword before the king. 25 And the king said, "Divide the living child in two, and give
half to one, and half to the other." 26 Then the woman whose son was living spoke to the king, for she yearned with compassion
for her son; and she said, "O my lord, give her the living child, and by no means kill him!" But the other said,
"Let him be neither mine nor yours, but divide him."
27 So the king answered and said, "Give the
first woman the living child, and by no means kill him; she is his mother." 28 And all Israel heard of the judgment which
the king had rendered; and they feared the king, for they saw that the wisdom of God was in him to administer justice. NKJV
