    "Pray Without Ceasing"
    I Thessalonians 5:17
    ~~~

    "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 us 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."

    Matthew 6:9-13

    Salvation Brings Change


    Salvation changes society.
    It starts in the heart
    And faith in our Master
    Is where the change starts.

    We become a new creature.
    The old is packed away,
    Never to unpack or use again
    Or save for a rainy day.

    We actually are born anew.
    A new identity we will receive,
    Like caterpillars transform into butterflies,
    If in our heart we truly believe.

    Salvation brings us peace.
    We walk daily as His friend.
    Then, we become obedient
    And steadfast, only in Him.

    Salvation changes society.
    He is our sovereign ruler and Lord.
    We see His preeminence and power,
    And His word sharper than a sword.
