The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive our debts as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

History will show that Jesus Christ, and the prophets, along with others in past generations, who accepted God as their creator and prayed to him for guidance, all experienced his blessings of peace and success. They left behind, legacies of great men and women.
Many young people of today have turned to God for guidance and have found through continuous prayers a peaceful and successful life. They are setting goals and making great achievements; while seeing a prosperous future ahead.
My Personal Relationship with God
In my own personal relationship with God, I have achieved many things and accomplished many goals. He has had a profound positive effect in my life from my preteen years to this present day. God has guided my decisions and intervened in my judgments to make the right decisions. Through prayers and patience, he has increased my wisdom.
The person who find their place in God, receive from him blessings in every aspect of their life as King David who wrote Psalm 1, and other writers along with many others have testified.
Psalm (chapter 1: 1-3)
Blessed is the man that walks not in the counsel of the
ungodly, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the
seat of the scornful.
But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law does
he meditate day and night.
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water,
that brings forth his fruit in his season;
his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he does shall prosper.

Our Father God,
Comfort the hearts of those who are sad, give them memories of happiness and love.
Let peace dwell within the minds of those who are tormented with grief.
Give strength to the weak, and heal the broken hearts.
Heal the sick bodies of those who are afflicted and wounded, of their pain.
Father, remember the poor and needy, and those who suffers from hunger and homelessness.
Shower us with financial blessings, and give us knowledge and wisdom to help others.
Father, help us to accept all people as your creation. Give us understanding to know that we are The Family of God.
Our Father God, to you we give honor, and ask for your blessings in good health and prosperity.
Thank you for extending to us, your grace and mercy. Amen

Thank you for food, protection, and shelter that you provide with blessings, for me and my family.
Please forgive our mistakes, and give us strength to withstand the daily challenges we encounter.
When we are treated unkindly by others, give us patience to wait for your justice.
You have made Known to the world; that vengeance belongs to you, and that you will bring justice upon those who commit wrongful acts against the innocent. Therefore, our battle is yours, and our victory lies in your hands.
*We are not defined by belief or by faith nor religion. We are the family of God.

Banana Bread Recipe http://foodforholidaysandbeyond.blogspot.com/2011/11/banana-bread.html
Dreams of success are easy to make when we share them with others, who are supportive. It is the challenges that come to hinder our progress, and test our strength, when we begin our walk up the Ladder of Success alone.
When I walked onto the Ladder of Success, I heard the distance voices of doubt that I could reach the top.There were times when I felt the Ladder of Success shaking violently underneath my feet and I nearly lost my balance; those were the times when I prayed for strength to hold on.
I soon realized I had enemies whose hands were on the Ladder of Success determined to keep me from reaching the top.
There were times when the top of the Ladder of Success seemed farther away each day as I struggled to keep from falling and to ignore the voices of doubt continuing to say, “You will never make it!” Why, don’t you let go?”
When the day of silence of the voices and sturdiness of the ladder of Success finally came, I heard the cheers of “Congratulation!” from my friends; I had reached the top of the Ladder of Success!
At the end of my journey on the Ladder of Success, I came to the conclusion; a person does not have to be religious to reach the top of the Ladder of Success; but every one that step onto the Ladder of Success, must have hope. And I whispered a prayer of thanks for hope.
