This is a prayer that you can say when you are lonely. You may be lonely because you are alone or you may be around other people but feel all alone. Whatever your situation is, there is hope for a better day. Hannoten Teshua – The Giver of Salvation (Hebrews 5: 9) can help alleviate your loneliness. His Spirit will keep you warm. Let us not forget that the enemy will also use the situation to make you feel lonely and miserable. You must cast out the spirit of loneliness. Say it loud because it really works!
When you pray, you must bless The LORD. Try hard to forgive others. Search your mind of any sin and confess them before the Father. Thank The LORD for everything. Be gracious and you will be blessed!
Here is the short prayer:
God (Elohim), You are my refuge and my strength. You are my help when I am in trouble. I cast all my anxieties on You for You care about me. Spirit of Loneliness, You depart from me right now in The Name of Jesus (Yeshua), Who gave me the authority to trample down snakes and scorpions and to disable all the power of the enemy! You cannot harm me for God has promised to deliver me! LORD (Adonai), heal my broken heart and bind up my wounds.
I will not fear or be dismayed for You are my God. Strengthen me, help me, and uphold me with Your right hand of righteousness! Eternal God, You are my refuge and underneath are the everlasting arms.
You thrust out the enemy from before me and destroy them. Renew my strength. Let me mount up with wings like eagles. Enable me to run and not be weary. Help me as I walk that I will not faint.
In Jesus’ Name (B’Shem Yeshua). Amen.

Eggs are one of nature’s most nutritious and economical foods. But, you must take special care with handling and preparing fresh eggs and egg products to avoid food poisoning.
Thorough cooking is an important step in making sure eggs are safe.
Scrambled eggs: Cook until firm, not runny.
Fried, poached, boiled, or baked: Cook until both the white and the yolk are firm.
Egg mixtures, such as casseroles: Cook until the center of the mixture reaches 160 °F when measured with a food thermometer.
EGG RECIPES: PLAYING IT SAFE
Homemade ice cream and eggnog are safe if you do one of the following:
Use a cooked egg-milk mixture. Heat it gently and use a food thermometer to ensure that it reaches 160 °F.
Use pasteurized eggs or egg products.
Dry meringue shells, divinity candy, and 7-minute frosting are safe — these are made by combining hot sugar syrup with beaten egg whites. However, avoid icing recipes using uncooked eggs or egg whites.
Meringue-topped pies should be safe if baked at 350 °F for about 15 minutes. But avoid chiffon pies and fruit whips made with raw, beaten egg whites — instead, substitute pasteurized dried egg whites, whipped cream, or a whipped topping.
Adapting Recipes: If your recipe calls for uncooked eggs, make it safe by doing one of the following:
Heating the eggs in one of the recipe’s other liquid ingredients over low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture reaches 160 °F. Then, combine it with the other ingredients and complete the recipe. Or use pasteurized eggs or egg products.
Using pasteurized eggs or egg products.
Note: Egg products, such as liquid or frozen egg substitute, are pasteurized, so it’s safe to use them in recipes that will be not be cooked. However, it’s best to use egg products in a recipe that will be cooked, especially if you are serving pregnant women, babies, young children, older adults, and people with weakened immune systems.

This story is about the souvenirs of God’s grace written by Betty Jane Olson, my almost-perfect mother-in-law.
Parasailing, anyone? Tennis, yes! Anything like parasailing would not be my chosen sport. However, I had been tempted by this new experience and had some fun. I tried it a few months before.
Popular in resort areas, parasailers are towed in the harness of a parachute over water behind a boat, or along a beach behind a jeep, or elsewhere and least of all in an open field behind a car or truck. I was stuck with the “least of all” simply because, virtuous as they may be in their own right, the ranch lands of Texas are not exactly Acapulco!
The morning had been overcast and windy, but by noon the sun was shining, and winds had dropped to occasional gusts. It seemed safe enough to begin parasailing. This would be my second try. On the ground behind the truck lay the tow rope, the harness, the lines, and the canopy of the parachute.
“Thou shalt not tempt the LORD,” came the thought as I was being buckled into the harness. But I could not buck down now! Everyone was waiting and watching! The canopy was lifted and billowed in the ground breezes. The signal was given to the driver, and he pulled slowly forward. A few running steps and a takeoff was the thrill I had remembered. But this time as I went up, the wind increased. At the pick of the ride when I was forty or fifty feet above the ground, a very strong gust broke the inadequate rope!
“God help me!” I prayed allowed as the canopy collapsed and I felt myself falling so fast! My feet met the ground first. Then the re-inflated canopy pulled again by the still strong wind jerked me to my back and dragged me across the field to a fence. Pain told me my back was injured so I played safe and stayed flat as I looked up to panic-stricken faces.
“Call an ambulance!” my husband pleaded of anyone. “No, don’t do that!” I cautioned. “This might be just a pulled ligament. Give me a little time, an aspirin and a heating pad.” I was stretchered into the nearest house. At the same time, I prayed, “Dear Lord, please don’t let this be serious.” I reflected on all that God had taught me, especially in the past ten years. That was when our entire family had been brought to a saving faith in Christ through our daughter who had accepted The Lord during her sophomore year in college.
The radiant change in her, and God’s patient leading through her, and then bible studies, had been a witness to each of us. Despite Christian upbringing and my love for the Lord, He showed me my need for something more…to know Him personally. I want to know how to cast my burdens upon Him and to recognize that even thoughts and attitudes which displease God are indeed what He calls “sin.” That confession is more than a formality; it is a heartfelt conviction. It is humbling before the Lord and knowing His love and forgiveness. That just being good was not my ticket to heaven. He showed me Ephesians 2:8 and 9 “for it is by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not from yourselves. It is the gift of God, not by works, so that no one can boast.” (NIV) Whether I had known it or not, I needed that assurance of my destiny. So, by His grace, I stepped across that fine line to accept Christ as my personal Saviour and gave Him control of my life. Now, ten years later, as I lay by the hearth, there was strength and comfort in His indwelling Spirit!
Later, the intense, persistent pain made me give in to my family’s urging to let them take me to the hospital. Again, I was stretchered, this time to a board that had been cut to fit the back seat of the car. During the one hour drive, I chatted assuringly with my anxious husband and son, as the Lord gave to me all that I needed of Himself and His Word. “Peace I leave with you; mMy peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” (John 14:27 NIV)
Two hours and lots of x-rays later, we were told that I had a very unstable double fracture of lumbar 1, a vertebra in the small of the back and that statistically most persons with such a fracture would have gone in paraplegic. I had no paralysis at all! Doctors said it was miraculous! One said, “Darn lucky!” Another knew as we did that God in His infinite love and mercy had chosen to spare me.
I would have to have major surgery, First some decisions had to be made and for one week I was log rolled, two hours on my back, two hours on each side, turned with help as a unit, nose, knees and toes in line to avoid paralysis or further damage.
During the week a close friend asked me if I had yet shed a single tear. I had not…not just because of the medication and that everything seemed to be hunky-dory. There is always a risk in surgery. It was because Jesus had given to me through His indwelling Spirit, the study of His word, and prayer, and His peace which passes all understanding!
This would not have been so for me ten years before. I would have been worried. And guilt could have plagued me for getting myself into this mess and causing my family anxiety! Oh, it is not that I never panic or never worry. It is just that I have more peace in more circumstances than I had ever known before as I had been taught to claim His promises. How sweet it is to know that my hand is held securely in His so that when I do stumble, He can pick me up again!
Surgery was successful. Two 7- 1/2″ stainless steel rods are buried in my back. I call them my “souvenirs of God’s grace” because they remind me of how gracious He was to spare me from permanent or even temporary disability and of all the blessings He worked from experience.
Romans 8:28 became more meaningful to me than ever before, that “all things work together for good for those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose.”
There was an intercessory prayer for me among friends and family. It had brought many to their knees before Him. I learned more of how our mistakes can be useful to the Lord when we surrender our blunders to Him. My husband accepted a doctor’s invitation to attend a more extensive men’s Bible study for which he had previously thought he would not have time. God knew exactly what He would do with where I was! There was the “rest,” and God knew I needed that!
Finally, He has enabled me to serve Him and with a grateful heart…share this story…to His glory!

LORD (Adonai), I cry to You for help. Deliver me from all my troubles. Be near to me and heal my broken heart.
My spirit is crushed, but I trust You that You will save me. I am casting all my anxieties on You because You care about me. My burden is heavy, but You promised to give me rest.
Hear my prayer and my cry, O LORD (Adonai). Do not hide Your face from me in the day of my distress! Incline Your ear to me.
Answer me quickly when I call! For my days disappear like smoke. My bones burn like they are on fire. My heart is broken and withered like grass.
I forget to eat my bread. Because of my loud groaning, my bones cling to my flesh. I am like a pelican of the wilderness. I am like an owl of the desert. I lie awake, and I am like a lone sparrow on the housetop.
My enemies humiliate me all day. They are mad at me and have cursed me. I eat ashes as if they were bread. My tears mingle with my drink because of Your anger and Your wrath.
You lifted me up and cast me down. My days are like a shadow that shrinks, and I am like grass the grass that wilted.
Answer me quickly, O LORD (Adonai)! My spirit fails! Hide not Your face from me, lest I am like those who go down to the pit.
Let me hear of Your lovingkindness in the morning, for I trust You. Show me the way I should go, for I lift up my soul to You. I believe You are with me. My God (Elohim), make me strong and uphold me with Your righteous right hand.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me. Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. Turn my mourning into dancing. Take away my sackcloth and cover me with gladness, in the Name of Jesus (Yeshua)!
Spirit of depression (or other problems) come out of me right now in The Name of Jesus (Yeshua), Who gave me the authority to trample down snakes and scorpions and to disable all the power of the enemy!
The blood of The Lamb covers me!
Accuser of the brethren, You leave right now! In Jesus’ Name (B’Shem Yeshua). Amen.

Fabric Softener! What is the secret? While TV ads paint a wonderful springtime fresh image of fabric softener, the truth about these products is not exactly what you might expect.
Mainstream commercial fabric softeners and dryer sheets are one of the most toxic products you can bring into your home.
Nobody is going to drink fabric softener, but the chemicals end up in our blood stream just the same. Exposure is 24/7. The product is in our clothing off-gassing and enters the body via inhalation. When we sleep at night, our noses are pressed against the linens, inhaling fabric softener all night long. These toxic chemicals are now being fed to our body, yet few of us give it a thought.
So what exactly are these chemicals in fabric softener that are so wicked? Rather than go into a lengthy detail here, I can direct people to the Environmental Working Group who researches these products and recommends people skip liquid fabric softeners and dryer sheets altogether. The web address is EWG.org and is an excellent source of information.
I have no affiliation with EWG but have found them to be a valuable resource for information on personal care and cleaning products. They have the funding to do lab analysis on everyday products, then rate them on an A thru F basis for health safety.
When we buy a product, every time that product passes over the scanner at checkout, we are casting a vote. Consumers have more power than they realize to change what industry puts on the shelves. Exercise that power today.
