Adonai Eloheinu

Prayer  By: Susan Bea Good

This week’s prayer breakfast in Washington featured our President’s inflammatory anti-Christ rhetoric. To sum him up, Christianity is as “good” and as “evil” as any other faith.

His warped perspective is providing hours of commentary, often with the precedent phrase, “I don’t know where to start.”

Well, I know where to start, and where to end. Adonai Eloheinu!

Known as the Shema of Israel, Adonai Eloheinu declares that the Lord is God! The biblical text in Deuteronomy 6 continues to declare that our Lord is the One God. That’s right, God declared Himself to be The One and Only…there are no others!

Hindus, Buddhists, Animists, Pagans, Wickens, Humanists, and Muslims worship the god that best fits their particular cultural preference. An yet they worship the same god, his name is Lucifer, the fallen angel.

There has always been only One God. As His follower I am biblically commanded to pray without ceasing. Furthermore, I am personally compelled to commence my prayers with expressions of gratitude, for opening the eyes of my heart, so that I could receive Him as my God.

Adonai Eloheinu, Adonai Echad!

“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is One. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.” (Deuteronomy 6:4-7/ESV)

The purpose of this blog is to encourage Christ-followers to see God’s Big Picture and be a part of it.
