“Jesus, Teach us to Follow your Love,” by Andrew J. Schatkin
My dear friends discerners, and those who wish to engage in critical thought, my dear thinkers and readers, I bid you join and follow me in another intellectual quest for truth and facts and ask you and bid you all reject political incorrectness, political code and media false hoods and lies and do ask you again come with me to the realm and arena where the darkness can be penetrated which our society puts upon us and engulfs us with.
Today’s prayer to Jesus is to follow his love as he commands us to not only love our neighbor but love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us.
Jesus, we know full well we live in an evil world permeated with corruption and wickedness and under the rule in many respects by Satan the prince of darkness and the legion of his demons. We know that in the past one hundred years there have been many genocides: the holocaust; Rwanda, the Armenian genocide, the genocide by Mao; Pol Pot; and the Russian Revolution; and many more as is presently occurring in the Christian genocide in the middle east, the killings of Christians in Nigeria, the Sudan, Egypt and in China. This is the world as we have come to truly know and understand, a world without the love of Jesus, a world in desperate need of that love. Teach us to follow your love. Teach us to grasp that your love is a love of giving not receiving and taking. We ask you to understand your love in the love of the cross where you died for and took upon himself the sins and the rescue of all humanity. Lord Jesus, point us to a world and all humanity is transformed into your image of giving love and not receiving it and moving beyond selfish childhood to your love, the love which makes us fully and completely human, transformed into the infinite potential possibility we have been made for living and knowing your love the love that will remake us and remake the world. Let us follow you, lord Jesus, to the end of the joy and love of the heavenly kingdom when Satan and his reign will be ended and will be cast into the eternal torment of hell and his demons that declined and refused to accept the sovereignty of god and the presence of man his new creation.
