           Prayer of Agreement               Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they     may ask, it shall be done for them           by my Father who is in heaven.                      (Matthew 18:19)                                                                 ________________________________                                                                                                                      A Prayer to be Well Balanced                                                                     Father, in the name of Jesus, I come boldly to Your throne of grace to receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Forgive me for getting caught up in my own pride. Sometimes I behave as though I am indispensable at home, at the office, at church and in other situations. I become irritable and fatigued, feeling that no one appreciates all that I do. Help me to step back and take a personal inventory. I am not alone, and I cannot carry this alone. There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven. Help me to keep my priorities in order. Help me to fulfill my call and responsibilities at home as a husband/wife and/or parent. While I am at work, help me to stay focused. Also, help me to take time to find rest, relief, ease and refreshment and recreation and blessed quiet for my soul. I cast the whole of my care, all my anxieties, all my worries, all my concerns, once and for all on You. I affirm that I am well-balanced, vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of mine, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring in fierce hunger seeking someone to seize upon and devour. In the name of Jesus, I withstand him; firm in faith against his onset…rooted, established, strong, immovable and determined. And after I have suffered a little while, You, the God of all grace, who imparts all blessing and favor, Who has called me to His eternal glory in Christ Jesus, will Yourself complete and make me what I ought to be, establish and ground me securely, and strengthen and settle me. To You be the dominion, power, authority, rule for ever and ever.                                   
Question of the Week                                                                                   What is the sea of forgetfulness?                                                                                  The phrase sea of forgetfulness is not actually in Scripture. When people mention the “sea of forgetfulness,” they are usually referring to several passages that talk about God’s forgiveness, and how when we are justified in Christ, God forgets our sins so completely that they might as well be buried at the bottom of an ocean. The main passage that contains the idea of a sea of forgetfulness is Micah 7:19: “He will again have compassion on us, and will subdue our iniquities. You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea.” Another verse, Isaiah 1:18, says that God will make our scarlet sins as white as wool. Psalm 103:12 expresses the thought in yet another way: “As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.” A sea of forgetfulness represents a place where our sins are sent very far away from us, so that they can no longer affect us. It means that our sins no longer have any bearing on our salvation. The idea that our sins are lost in a sea of forgetfulness is a comfort. We are no longer judged by our sins (Rom.8:1), and that fact frees us to live life in a way that pleases God. Many people do not believe they require salvation. They believe that they are good enough to reach heaven on their own merit, and they do not accept the truth about their own fallen state. These people are deceived, and they do not have a relationship with God (1 Jn.1:8, 10). Every person needs God’s forgiveness and salvation…a relationship based on dependence on His grace. If we admit that we are sinners and trust in Christ, He forgives and cleanses us (1 Jn.1:9). Our sins are no longer part of the equation and will not be remembered (Jer.31:34; Heb.8:12).
