Every day at noon, Grandma Rose would open the doors of the church for noonday prayer. Getting up in the morning saying your prayer and giving God thanks was in her daily routine, but so was noonday prayer. She believed that you must stay prayerful and thankful at all times. She was a faithful servant of the Lord. She never missed a day. She did this until she was no longer able to see due to glaucoma and cataract. Noonday prayer service seems to be almost forgotten in these times, but it doesn't mean you can't stop what you are doing and give God some of your time. So far today, you are still here, covered and blessed; shouldn't that alone be worthy of some praise? Don't just pick God up in the mornings and put Him down for the rest of the day unless something happens and you need Him. Call Him up on noonday, just like Grandma Rose, be a faithful servant. Her faithfulness and prayers are the reason why I am still covered and protected today. How many of you are covered based on the prayers of your grandmother or mother? Well, let's take the time to live out the things we have learned from them.
O precious Father in Heaven, I give you the praise, honor, and glory. Thank You for Your divine covering and protection. Continue to answer the favored prayers of my ancestors over my life and the life of their bloodline. I ask that You destroy the plans of attack by the enemy on my life. Penetrate my heart and mind, heavenly Father. Keep me on the path of righteousness. Remain faithful in guiding me, never leaving or forsaking me. All the days of my life, I will serve You, in Jesus' name, Amen.
"let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering; for he who promised is faithful."
"Don’t let your heart be troubled. Believe in God. Believe also in me.”
'His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a few things, I will set you over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’
"No matter what you think of me, know that I am always faithful in giving God some time, whether you see it or not. I am always talking to God. That is the one thing my mother, grandmother, and aunt always showed me."- Alston Shropshire
