Selfless King

Jesus took the time to pray for us before He was betrayed
and then He sacrificed His holy life to take our sins away

Jesus said a prayer 

to His holy Father for you and for me

He said this prayer for all who will ever believe

 

Jesus prayed that we’d all be one in perfect unity 

and for the world to know that it is He

that the Father sent to set us free

 

Jesus wants us to live with Him, forever

in the glory given to Him before the world began 

Can you imagine living with the Great I Am?

 

Jesus prayed for us to know 

that we are loved as much as He

Then shortly after, He was arrested 

in the Garden of Gethsemane

 

Jesus knew what was going to take place

He knew the torture—He knew the pain

but even knowing all that He’d face

He still chose to die for the entire human race

 

Jesus took the time to pray for us before He was betrayed

and then He sacrificed His holy life to take our sins away

If you’ve never known His love or what His sacrifice brings

I pray that today marks the day you ask Jesus to be your King

 

“I am praying … for all who will ever believe in me … that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you … may they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me.” 

John 17:20-23

About the Author

Debbie always had a desire to write a book, but didn’t have a clue as to what the content could be. Children’s books and short stories piqued her interest most. She had dabbled with writing family-oriented poems, off and on over the years, but became overwhelmed with a hunger to write about God and His love in her late fifties. She started seeing God everywhere she looked whether it was in a deck of cards, movie titles, nursery rhymes, popular sayings, flower petals, or a baseball game. She finally realized that prophecy was being fulfilled when one of her sons told her that her poetry glorified God and was meant to be shared. The Lord’s words from an encounter in 2011 immediately returned to her. She had found her way to speak about God just like He told her she would. Debbie is sharing her poetry in hopes that it will nourish and strengthen souls for the Kingdom of God. She refers to her poetic style as floetry, as it is the move of the Holy Spirit flowing from her heart to another. Her desire to flood the prisons with her book is due to God’s belief in her, and in her belief that no one can cast the first stone, but that everyone can help someone who is in desperate need of a Savior.
