I am the Good Shepherd
I am The Good Shepherd
It is the Shepherd responsiblly
11“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives his life for the sheep. 12 The worker who is paid to keep the sheep is different from the shepherd who owns them. When the worker sees a wolf coming, he runs away and leaves the sheep alone. Then the wolf attacks the sheep and scatters them. 13 The man runs away because he is only a paid worker and does not really care about the sheep. 14 “I am the good shepherd. I know my sheep, and my sheep know me, 15 just as the Father knows me, and I know the Father. I give my life for the sheep.
6 An elder must not be guilty of doing wrong, must have only one wife, and must have believing children. They must not be known as children who are wild and do not cooperate.
Personal and Social Qualities
7 As God’s managers, overseers must not be guilty of doing wrong, being selfish, or becoming angry quickly. They must not drink too much wine, like to fight, or try to get rich by cheating others. 8 Overseers must be ready to welcome guests, love what is good, be wise, live right, and be holy and self-controlled.
May I be faithful in marriage, blameless in public life, not selfish, or become angry quickly, give me the strength to control my body, my thoughts, and not cheat other to become rich. My God, my savior help me, have mercy, give grace to me your servant. Help me a king to always be ready to welcome guest to know and to love what is good, to be wise, to live right, to be holy and self-controlled. This is my new year prayer that I, a king and servant of the King of Kings, the Lord of Hosts, I a shepherd of many ask the creator and maker of all things to grant me the power of the spirit that produce the fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
I will give my offering and tithe each and every day spending time studying your words and commands the principles by which I live will be your commands and when I fall short I will accept the truth of my actions and know that it is I that fail but not you’re Holy Words. I will fall down on my knees and confess my sin to the Son and beg for forgiveness, mercy and grace.
Please accept my humble prayer Amen.
