Rugaciunea de invocare la instalarea presedintelui Obama a fost  o rugaciune care a chemat la toleranta.(vezi  un articol cu aceste titlu din The Wall Street Journal. apasa pe http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123249891036400529.html?mod=googlenews_wsj

Chiar daca vrem sa sustinem „Adevarul” acest lucru nu trebuie sa ne permita sa fim intoleranti sau excluisivi in viata publica.  Trebuie sa luptam sa dovedim cu viata si apoi cu cuvintele „Adevarul”. Asta este ceea ce lipseste evanghelicilor si astazi. Am avut prea multe exemple de „vedete evanghelice „care au esuat. NU-i vom castiga pe oameni pentru Hristos printr-o rugaciune exclusiva. Rick Warren s-a dovedit pana acum un om integru. A incercat prin aceasta rugaciune  sa aplice principiul”Cu iudeii m-am facut ca un iudeu…. am fost slab cu cei slabi..m-am facut tuturor totul ca oricum sa mantuiesc pe unii din ei.” 

Rugaciunea lui Warren este cladita pe tiparul rugaciunii „Tatal nostru” aplicata la nivel national si potrivita cu ocazia cu care a fost rostita. Am ascultat rugaciunea  si am fost bucuros sa aud ca incheie cu rugaciunea „Tatal nostru” 

 Va prezint rugaciunea lui Rick Warren si astept comentariile voastre:

Let us pray.

Almighty God, our Father, everything we see and everything we can’t see exists because of you alone. It all comes from you. It all belongs to you. It all exists for your glory.

History is your story. The Scripture tells us, “Hear O Israel, the Lord is our God. The Lord is One.” And you are the compassionate and merciful one. And you are loving to everyone you have made.

Now, today, we rejoice not only in America’s peaceful transfer of power for the 44th time. We celebrate a hingepoint of history with the inauguration of our first African American president of the United States. We are so grateful to live in this land, a land of unequaled possibility, where the son of an African immigrant can rise to the highest level of our leadership. And we know today that Dr. King and a great cloud of witnesses are shouting in heaven.Give to our new President, Barack Obama, the wisdom to lead us with humility, the courage to lead us with integrity, the compassion to lead us with generosity. Bless and protect him, his family, Vice President Biden, the cabinet, and every one of our freely elected leaders.

Help us, O God, to remember that we are Americans, united not by race, or religion, or blood, but to our commitment to freedom and justice for all. When we focus on ourselves, when we fight each other, when we forget you, forgive us. When we presume that our greatness and our prosperity is ours alone, forgive us. When we fail to treat our fellow human beings and all the earth with the respect that they deserve, forgive us. And as we face these difficult days ahead, may we have a new birth of clarity in our aims, responsibility in our actions, humility in our approaches, and civility in our attitudes, even when we differ.

Help us to share, to serve and to seek the common good of all. May all people of good will today join together to work for a more just, a more healthy and a more prosperous nation and a peaceful planet. And may we never forget that one day all nations and all people will stand accountable before you. We now commit our new president and his wife, Michelle and his daughters, Malia and Sasha, into your loving care.

I humbly ask this in the name of the one who changed my life, Yeshua, Isa, Jesus [Spanish pronunciation], Jesus, who taught us to pray:

“Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.”

Este o rugaciune din secolul I. Destinatarii traiau intr-o tara care era imperiu.Aveau un imparat care era considerat divin si trebuia sa te inchini lui.Crestinii erau persecutati de puterea politica si religioasa. Chiar autorul a scris-o cand era in inchisoare pentru credinta care o marturisea.

   (1Timotei 2:1-4)”Va indemn dar,inainte de toate sa faceti

                          1)rugaciuni,2)(cereri,3)mijlociri,4)multuniri

                pentru  TOTI OAMENII

                pentru IMPARATI(PRESEDINTI)

 10 ways to pray for Obama

 

Whether you voted for Obama or not, you need to pray for him. Here are 10 ways I plan to intercede for him regularly:

1. Pray for Obama’s protection. We already know that some weird, neo-Nazi fanatics in Tennessee plotted to kill Sen. Obama during his campaign. Let’s pray that racist hatred is not allowed to spread. Let’s cancel every assassin’s bullet in the name of Jesus. May civility triumph over bigotry.

2. Cover his wife and daughters in prayer. It is not easy to live under constant media scrutiny. Pray for Obama’s wife, Michelle, and their two daughters, Malia and Natasha, as they face invasive cameras, nosy reporters, maniacal fans and dangerous enemies. Obama is not only a politician but also a husband and a father.

3. Pray that Obama will govern with God’s wisdom. God rewarded Solomon because he asked for wisdom instead of wealth, long life or vengeance on his enemies (see 1 Kings 3:11-12). Pray that Obama will order his priorities like that. Despite Solomon’s tragic character flaws, his legacy was wisdom. We can ask God to give our president the same grace.

4. Ask God to keep our president humble. Many great American leaders became corrupt after they moved to Washington. The fatal attraction of fame, wealth and power proved irresistible. The only thing that will guard a man or woman from this pitfall is humility. May God deliver President Obama from the curse of pride.

5. Pray for wise and righteous advisers to surround him. Godly leaders cannot do their job alone. Even the best leaders have failed because they trusted the wrong people. Pray that Obama will not select his counselors based on party, race, pedigree or political cronyism but on godly character and proven wisdom. Pray also that he will not allow secret traitors into his inner circle.

6. Ask for the spirit of reconciliation. Some segments of our deeply divided society want nothing to do with Obama now that he has won the presidency. Even some Christians will be tempted to harbor resentment and nurse political grudges throughout his term in office. Pray that God will grant forgiveness and healing so that leaders on all political levels can have constructive dialogue.

7. Pray that Obama will adopt pro-life convictions. Many politicians have changed their views on key issues while in office. In the 1800s some leaders who favored slavery later denounced it. In the 1950s some who opposed racial integration later became champions of it. Even though Obama won approval from many voters because he sanctions abortion, God could soften and change his heart.

8. Bind all evil forces assigned to manipulate our president. The specter of Islamic terrorism looms over the United States, and dark forces are ready to infiltrate. Our only hope lies in prayer to the God who is able to expose and outwit the schemes of the wicked. This is truly a time for spiritual warfare, and intercessors must not come off the wall in this hour! Pray that no foreign government, terrorist organization or demonic principality will use Obama as a tool. We must stand strong against the spirit of antichrist that promotes dictatorship, persecution of Christians and hostility toward Israel.

9. Pray that Obama’s door will remain open to the church. The loudest voices of secular culture—from Bill Maher in Hollywood to atheists in academia—would be happy if religion were removed from public life. Pray that Obama, who claims to have a personal faith in Jesus Christ, will unapologetically welcome Christian leaders into his company and seek their counsel. And pray that false religious leaders (who claim to know Christ but deny His power) will not have his ear.

10. Pray that our nation will enjoy God’s peace and blessing during the Obama administration. The apostle Paul instructed early believers to pray for all in authority „so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity” (1 Tim. 2:2, NASB). God’s will is for America to experience peace and prosperity so that we can continue to export the gospel to the nations. This must happen whether a Democrat or a Republican is in the White House. As we cry out for God’s mercy on our wayward nation, pray that He will allow us to be a light to the world as we finance global missions, feed and heal the world’s poor and share Christ’s love at home and abroad.

VICTORIE ASUPRA ISPITELOR DIN DOMENIUL SEXUAL
Sunt propuse in ultimii ani tot mai multe si diferite metode de a ajunge la victorie in acest domeniu al luptei noastre spiriituale. Sunt foarte mult cautate sfaturile psihologilor si consilierilor ,medicilor, invatatorilor crestini etc . care uneori complica lucrurile si dau retete care nu duc la rezultatele asteptate totdeauna.
Am ajuns la concluzia dupa ce am citit tot felul de carti pe aceasta tema, ca de fapt exista in Biblie o serie de sfaturi foarte practice in acest domeniu,si pentru mine personal lucrurile s-au simplificat foarte mult.
1. Rugaciunea este lucrul cel mai important dar nu singurul in aceasta lupta.
“Vegheati si rugati-va ca sa nu cadeti in ispita …”(Matei26:41). Rugaciunea sincera este strigatul nostru disperat dupa ajutor ,recunoasterea implicit a starii de infrangere si pacatosenie, nevoia de a fi iertati pentru ca iarasi am gresit . Dar trebuie sa constientizam doua lucruri: ca Dumnezeu se asteapta sa avem biruinta deplina si ca este nevoie sa actionam practic . Aceasta constituie partea noastra, ascultarea noastra de poruncile Lui.
2. Trebuie sa realizam dimensiunea si implicatiile pacatelor din domeniul sexualitatii.
In predica de pe munte Isus(Matei 5: 27-30) arata dimensiunea acestui pacat care incepe de la ganduri ,priviri fiind comparate cu actul in sine.Implicatiile lui ne duc la concluzia de a actiona radical . “Daca ochiul sau mana ..te face sa cazi in pacat scoate-l sau tai-o…” Vom fi convinsi ca aceste masuri sunt proportionale , si nu disproportionate daca iti faci calculul , trupul intreg in ghena sau fara unele madulare in rai. Concluzia : merita sa iei orice decizie pentru a ajunge la victorie.
Chair daca de exemplu nu te mai uiti deloc la televizor,sau ocolesti standul de reviste,sau iti schimbi locul de munca ., nimic nu este prea mult pentru victoria deplina.
3. Toate actiunile descrise in Biblie ca necesare pentrua ajunge la victorie sunt de o extrema severitate.
. Nu este loc pentru a sta si a face compromisuri ,pentru ca de fapt nu exista .
Exemplul lui Iosif: “…El i-a lasat haina in mana si a fugit afara din casa …”(Genesa 39:12 vezi contextul ).
Exemplul lui Iov : “Facusem legamant cu ochii mei, si nu mi-as fi oprit privirile asupra unei fecioare “(Iov 31:1) O decizie ferma(legamant) privind masurile pe care trebuie sa le iei, care sa te ajute sa ajungi la biruinta.
Invatatura ap Pavel: “Fugi de poftele tineretii,si urmareste neprihanirea ,credinta dragostea,pacea, impreuna cu cei ce cheama pe Domnul dintr-o inima curata”(2 Timotei 2:22)
Daca pana acum s-au descris exemple de actiuni negative cum ar fi “fug”,”nu ma uit”, “imi scot ochii”, “imi tai mana”( acestea doua din urma nu indeamna in mod fizic sa facem acest lucru ,ci ne arata ca trebuie sa facem, orice lucru specific care sa ne ajute ca sa nu mai pacatuim) , apostolul Pavel ne indeamna si la actiuni pozitive.
Acestea intregesc planul practic care duce la victorie: “urmarirea” roadelor Duhului Sfant, si ramanerea “impreuna” in partasie cu credinciosii adevarati.
Am scris aceste lucruri vazand oameni disperati pentru a ajunge la victorie , gandindu-ma ca poate aceasta scriere le va sugera o cale spre aceasta .

Timpul de partasie cu Dumnezeu(citirea Bibliei si rugaciune) este cel important lucru in viata unui ucenic al lui Hristos. Isus insusi a petrecut un astfel de timp.

 

A doua zi dimineata,pe cand era inca intuneric de tot ,Isus S-a sculat,a iesit, si S-a dus intr-un loc pustiu. Si se ruga acolo.” Marcu 1:35

NUMAI EU SI DUMNEZEU
Privilegiul de a fi in compania privata si personala cu Dumnezeu este posibila prin Hristos care ne-a intermediat aceasta.
Depinde acum de noi daca o valorizam la maxim,oricare dintre noi, oricand si oriunde.
Trebuie numai sa decidem sa gasim timpul si locul si determinarea necesare pentru a cultiva aceasta exclusiva atentie acordata fiecarui individ de pe planeta pamant.
Si fiindca noi suntem oameni muritori si El este Dumnezeu vesnic „sa ne apropiem cu deplina incredere de scaunul harului ,ca sa capatam indurare …. „ (Evrei 4:16a) pentru ca „avem un Mare Preot care a strabatut cerurile ..” si sta langa Dumnezeu pentru noi.
Si fiindca noi suntem pacatosi si Dumnezeu este sfant sa ne apropiem dar cu avertismentul „Luati seama ca nu cumva sa nu voiti sa ascultati pe Cel ce va vorbeste din ceruri…”(Evrei12:25)
Cu limitarile noastre prezente avem nevoie sa ne angajam special ,in a petrece un timp special, zilnic „Numai eu si Dumnezeu”, intr-un loc special, cu scopul dezvoltarii unui dialog, in care Dumnezeu totdeauna vorbeste (primul) si eu raspund prin asculatare si exprimare prin rugaciune, in concordanta cu ceea ce mi-a vorbit El. Dialogul continua dupa acest tipar, atat timp cat sunt disponibil.
DUMNEZEU vorbeste prin Biblie EU raspuind prin rugaciune

Un timp „Numai eu si Dumnezeu”
Zilnic: avem cel putin doua exemple in Biblie
Daniel- ..a intrat in casa lui…… si de trei ori pe zi ingenunchea , se ruga si lauda pe Dumnezeu cum facea si mai inainte …” (Daniel 6:10)
Isus – „…A doua zi dimineate pe cand era inca intuneric de tot ,Isus s-a sculat …
si s-a dus …sa se roage …(Marcu1;35)
Zilnic: in oricare din momentele din zi: dimineata ,seara ,oricand in timpul zilei sau noaptea.
Zilnic: cu o durata de timp pe care o putem dedica voluntar acestui lucru(10min,15 min,etc)

Un loc „Numai eu si Dumnezeu”
Locul: orice loc– Dumnezeu este prezent in orice loc, noi ne putem inchina in orice loc. Dar pentur noi este nevoie sa alegem un loc „LOCUL” special care sa ne asigure linistea necesara unei comunicari neintrerupte .
Locul: avem cel putin doua exemple in Biblie
Daniel 6:10 „….Daniel…a intrat in casa lui ..unde ferestrele odaii de sus erau deschise spre Ierusalim..”
Marcu 1:35 „….Isus s-a sculat ,a iesit si s-a dus intr-un loc pustiu …..si se ruga
acolo..”
de Daniel Lucescu
