A book of prayers to the Holy Face of Jesus
Thought, Word, and Deed!
We should keep God ever present in thought, word, and deed!
But pay particular attention in your relationships, especially to spouses!
Put patience and pause between your thoughts and your words!
The warring Angel seeks to create separation between you and so exercise caution and patience between your thoughts and your words!
Discern before speaking are these thoughts really true and do they breathe life and honor into the conversation and relationship or are they words of death and destruction, of division!
Be quick to listen, and slow to speak.
Only speak life and love to those you care about!
Odds are those ill felt thoughts are false, and they cast judgement by expressing them in your words!
So put pause and patience between your thoughts and your words!
Then put action between your words and your deeds!
Speak words of life and follow it up with actions of love!
Let your deeds make manifest the words of life and love that you express!
Make Jesus the centerpiece of all conversations.
Let Christ abide in you in all thoughts, word and deed!
“I am the way, the truth, and the life!” John 14:6
Breathe life into every thought word and deed!
Deliverance and healing are commonplace in an abundant life when every thought, word and deed bears out the truth and the love of Christ!
Colossians 3:17 (RSV)
"Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness, and patience, forbearing one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.
And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.
And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teach and admonish one another in all wisdom, and sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
Rules for Christian Households
Wives, be subject to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.
Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them.
Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.
Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged.
Slaves, obey in everything those who are your earthly masters, not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but in singleness of heart, fearing the Lord.
Whatever your task, work heartily, as serving the Lord and not men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward; you are serving the Lord Christ.
For the wrongdoer will be paid back for the wrong he has done, and there is no partiality."
O Most Precious Body and Blood of Christ!
O Eucharistic Lord!
Love shared in thought, word, and deed!
Be light and life to all the nations!
