Prisoners Of Hope

 

You’ll no longer live
chained to fear

but hope’s prisoner you’ll
now be

as I restore double
and lift you up

as My banner of great
beauty.

**********

I am a prisoner of hope for You are with me.

**********

“Return to the stronghold, you prisoners of hope, even today I declare that I will restore double to you.”

“The LORD their God will save them in that day, as the flock of His people. For they shall be like the jewels of a crown, lifted like a banner over His land – “

“for how great is their goodness and how great their beauty.”

Zechariah 9:12,16,17. NKJV

“But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them.” Acts 16:25 NKJV

What a wonderful thing to hear while in prison.

Thank You, Lord, for helping us pray and praise during our hardest times.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Some are watching
some are listening
some are desperate
to know

who is this God
that we pray to
and why do we
love Him so.

God bless you as you pray today!

Prisoners Of Hope

“Return to the stronghold,

You prisoners of hope.”  Zechariah 9:12

 

Hope can be a stronghold.

Thank You,  Lord, for setting us free to hope.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

 

Rescued from

the waterless pit

 

we are now

His prisoners of hope

 

set free to believe

love and trust

 

in the center of

His strong hold.

 

God bless you as you hope in Him today!

The Wounded

“The dying groan in the city,
And the souls of the wounded cry out . . .”  Job 24:12

Mr. Larry Who fasts and prays each Friday for the prisoners in North Korea and throughout Asia and those imprisoned by poverty or drugs or any of the countless ways one can be imprisoned.  Would you like to join him?

Lord, as those imprisoned groan and cry out, we join them and ask for Your mercy to make a way.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Precious Prisoners

As the wounded cry out
and the dying groan
we pray to God
with Holy Spirit moans
for He’s always moving
on behalf of these ones
for each is considered
a precious daughter, a much loved son.

Prisoners of War

“When the King of Arad, the Canaanite, who dwells in the South, heard that Israel was coming on the road to Atharim, then he fought against Israel and took some of them prisoners.” Numbers 21:1
“So Israel made a vow to the Lord, and said, ‘If You will indeed deliver this people into my hand, then I will utterly destroy their cities’.” Numbers 21:2
“And the Lord listened to the voice of Israel and delivered up the Canaanites . . .” Numbers 21:3

To this day, Israeli soldiers are targeted to be taken as prisoners. Their enemies know how valuable their sons and daughters are and so use them to barter with and make demands.

Thank You Lord, for coming to set the captives free. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Freedom Fighters

Can I be okay
while there are those imprisoned
by politics and poverty
addictions and fears?
Teach me how to
reach out with You, Lord
to let them know
freedom is here.
