“How much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?”

Until recently through the teachings of Prophet Robin D. Bullock, I did not know how to apply the power of Jesus’ blood into my daily prayer.  So, I searched the Bible and discovered 39 relevant verses to help me live out this truth.  These verses demonstrate the importance of Jesus’ blood.

As we approach Good Friday, we can ponder that:

“And being in agony He was praying very fervently; and His sweat became like drops of blood, falling down upon the ground.” —Luke 22:44.

By offering His Blood on the wooden beam, he washed away all of humanity’s sins.  How can anyone not be sobered by this truth?

In Ephesians 1:7, we are told that:

“In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our debts, according to the riches of His grace.”

Praise be to God that the Blood of Christ renews, restores, and redeems everything in the human body and gives a new way of life; it blesses with wisdom and the ability to abide with God.

“The Blood of Jesus has an ‘Opening Power’ like a Master Key that opens the Mysteries of God.”  Receiving Communion is “Eat my flesh and drink my blood.”   –Ana Mendez

Partaking of Communion in flesh and blood, gives the body the power to conquer sin…this is the power of the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ when we commune with Him.

“So Jesus said to them, ‘Truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in yourselves.  He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.  For My flesh is true food, and My blood is true drink.  He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood dwells in me and I in him.  —John 6:53-57

May these holy thoughts give you comfort and peace as we approach Resurrection Sunday.

“Surviving is important, thriving is elegant.”

–Maya Angelou

I can appreciate Maya’s thought that thriving in life is dashing.  We learn from experience and survive the worst circumstances; to thrive is regal.

Saint Joseph leads the way to thrive in adversity, as he guarded the precious lives of Mary and Jesus.

Joseph, guide us in life and at the moment of death, pray for us.

“Through Love all that is bitter will become sweet.”


Have you ever prayed while walking around a labyrinth?

I did so as a child where they were found in the most breathtaking cathedrals in Europe.  The circular experience brings a transformation of the mind and body.  If one is nearby you, you should try it.  If not, you can create a labyrinth around your property.

During the two weeks that have passed since the onset of Lent, have you felt a transformation in your prayer life?   It’s basically a conversation with God that can take place anytime anywhere.  I find that prayer is a response to God’s goodness in daily living.  When we pray the “Our Father” and “Thy Will be done,” we are reminded that He knows what we need before we ask Him.

“The Lord has eyes for the just and ears for their cry.”  –Psalm 34

Thanks be to the communion of Saints and our ancestors who can encourage us to walk with perseverance the race set before us each day.

“One is never so strong as when one is broken.”  –Hazrat Inayat Khan

Blessings to you this good weekend.

“The test of love is always what the lover does or is prepared to do for the sake of the beloved.”

–Gerard Vann

Let’s take a pause for love right now.

Jesus gives meaning to all life.

He gives meaning to suffering or takes it away.

The world needs love.

When was the last time you said to another?

“I love God.”

“I love you.”

I am out with lanterns, looking for myself.”

–Emily Dickinson

When was the last time you did some deep soul searching?

We can take a cue from the Robin who tilts his head from right to left to find where the worms are under ground.

What are you doing now? Stop and reflect.  What are you discovering?

Write these things down.  You will find yourself in them.
