Each day I pray for all of my children, even my very first spiritual child from the streets in NYC 20 years ago!
Our God is a God of RESTORATION! He said in Joel 2…I will restore my people. God promised us he will restore ruined places. He will restore broken places! He said he will restore to us years that has been lost and stolen. Years of struggles and years of pain. So, today we decree and declare this word over our lives…
Joel 2:25-26…God said…”I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the canker worm and the caterpillar and the palmer worm. My great army I sent among you…You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied and praise the name of the Lord your God who has dealt wondrously with you…and you shall never be put to shame

And brought out Israel from among them: for his mercy endureth for ever: 12. With a strong hand, and with a stretched out arm: for his mercy endureth for ever. 13.

Even an heritage unto Israel his servant: for his mercy endureth for ever. 23. Who remembered us in our low estate: for his mercy endureth for ever: 24. And hath redeemed us from our enemies: for his mercy endureth for ever. 25. Who giveth food to all flesh: for his mercy endureth for ever. 26. O give thanks unto the God of heaven: for his mercy endureth for ever. – Bible Offline
Psalm: 137. 1. By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion. 2. We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof. 3. For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying, Sing us one of the songs of Zion. 4. How shall we sing the LORD’s song in a strange land? 5. If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning. 6. If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy. 7. Remember, O LORD, the children of Edom in the day of Jerusalem; who said, Rase it, rase it, even to the foundation thereof. 8. O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us. 9. Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones. – Bible Offline
Psalm: 138. 1. I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto thee. 2. I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name. 3. In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst me with strength in my soul. 4. All the kings of the earth shall praise thee, O LORD, when they hear the words of thy mouth. 5. Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the LORD: for great is the glory of the LORD. 6. Though the LORD be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off. 7. Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me. 8. The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands. – Bible Offline
Psalm: 139. 1. O LORD, thou hast searched me, and known me. 2. Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off. 3. Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways. 4. For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether. 5. Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me. 6. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it. 7. Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? 8. If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. 9. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; 10. Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me. 11. If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me. 12. Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee. 13. For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. 14. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. 15. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. 16. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. 17. How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! 18. If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee. 19. Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men. 20. For they speak against thee wickedly, and thine enemies take thy name in vain. 21. Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee? 22. I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies. 23. Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: 24. And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. – Bible Offline
Psalm: 140. 1. Deliver me, O LORD, from the evil man: preserve me from the violent man; 2. Which imagine mischiefs in their heart; continually are they gathered together for war. 3. They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent; adders’ poison is under their lips. Selah. 4. Keep me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from the violent man; who have purposed to overthrow my goings. 5. The proud have hid a snare for me, and cords; they have spread a net by the wayside; they have set gins for me. Selah. 6. I said unto the LORD, Thou art my God: hear the voice of my supplications, O LORD. 7. O GOD the Lord, the strength of my salvation, thou hast covered my head in the day of battle. 8. Grant not, O LORD, the desires of the wicked: further not his wicked device; lest they exalt themselves. Selah. 9. As for the head of those that compass me about, let the mischief of their own lips cover them. 10. Let burning coals fall upon them: let them be cast into the fire; into deep pits, that they rise not up again. 11. Let not an evil speaker be established in the earth: evil shall hunt the violent man to overthrow him. 12. I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted, and the right of the poor. 13. Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto thy name: the upright shall dwell in thy presence. – Bible Offline
Proverbs: 28. 1. The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion. 2. For the transgression of a land many are the princes thereof: but by a man of understanding and knowledge the state thereof shall be prolonged. 3. A poor man that oppresseth the poor is like a sweeping rain which leaveth no food. 4. They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them. 5. Evil men understand not judgment: but they that seek the LORD understand all things. 6. Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich. 7. Whoso keepeth the law is a wise son: but he that is a companion of riotous men shameth his father. 8. He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor. 9. He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination. 10. Whoso causeth the righteous to go astray in an evil way, he shall fall himself into his own pit: but the upright shall have good things in possession. 11. The rich man is wise in his own conceit; but the poor that hath understanding searcheth him out. 12. When righteous men do rejoice, there is great glory: but when the wicked rise, a man is hidden. 13. He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy. 14. Happy is the man that feareth alway: but he that hardeneth his heart shall fall into mischief. 15. As a roaring lion, and a ranging bear; so is a wicked ruler over the poor people. 16. The prince that wanteth understanding is also a great oppressor: but he that hateth covetousness shall prolong his days. 17. A man that doeth violence to the blood of any person shall flee to the pit; let no man stay him. 18. Whoso walketh uprightly shall be saved: but he that is perverse in his ways shall fall at once. 19. He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread: but he that followeth after vain persons shall have poverty enough. 20. A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent. 21. To have respect of persons is not good: for for a piece of bread that man will transgress. 22. He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him. 23. He that rebuketh a man afterwards shall find more favour than he that flattereth with the tongue. 24. Whoso robbeth his father or his mother, and saith, It is no transgression; the same is the companion of a destroyer. 25. He that is of a proud heart stirreth up strife: but he that putteth his trust in the LORD shall be made fat. 26. He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered. 27. He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack: but he that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse. 28. When the wicked rise, men hide themselves: but when they perish, the righteous increase. – Bible Offline
Psalm: 131. 1. LORD, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me. 2. Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul is even as a weaned child. 3. Let Israel hope in the LORD from henceforth and for ever. Psalm: 132. 1. LORD, remember David, and all his afflictions: 2. How he sware unto the LORD, and vowed unto the mighty God of Jacob; 3. Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed; 4. I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids, 5. Until I find out a place for the LORD, an habitation for the mighty God of Jacob. 6. Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah: we found it in the fields of the wood. 7. We will go into his tabernacles: we will worship at his footstool. 8. Arise, O LORD, into thy rest; thou, and the ark of thy strength. 9. Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let thy saints shout for joy. 10. For thy servant David’s sake turn not away the face of thine anointed. 11. The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne. 12. If thy children will keep my covenant and my testimony that I shall teach them, their children shall also sit upon thy throne for evermore. 13. For the LORD hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation. 14. This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it. 15. I will abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread. 16. I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy. 17. There will I make the horn of David to bud: I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed. 18. His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish. Psalm: 133. 1. Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! 2. It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; 3. As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore. Psalm: 134. 1. Behold, bless ye the LORD, all ye servants of the LORD, which by night stand in the house of the LORD. 2. Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the LORD. 3. The LORD that made heaven and earth bless thee out of Zion. Psalm: 135. 1. Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the name of the LORD; praise him, O ye servants of the LORD. 2. Ye that stand in the house of the LORD, in the courts of the house of our God, 3. Praise the LORD; for the LORD is good: sing praises unto his name; for it is pleasant. 4. For the LORD hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for his peculiar treasure. 5. For I know that the LORD is great, and that our Lord is above all gods. 6. Whatsoever the LORD pleased, that did he in heaven, and in earth, in the seas, and all deep places. 7. He causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings for the rain; he bringeth the wind out of his treasuries. 8. Who smote the firstborn of Egypt, both of man and beast. 9. Who sent tokens and wonders into the midst of thee, O Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his servants. 10. Who smote great nations, and slew mighty kings; 11. Sihon king of the Amorites, and Og king of Bashan, and all the kingdoms of Canaan: 12. And gave their land for an heritage, an heritage unto Israel his people. 13. Thy name, O LORD, endureth for ever; and thy memorial, O LORD, throughout all generations. 14. For the LORD will judge his people, and he will repent himself concerning his servants. 15. The idols of the heathen are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands. 16. They have mouths, but they speak not; eyes have they, but they see not; 17. They have ears, but they hear not; neither is there any breath in their mouths. 18. They that make them are like unto them: so is every one that trusteth in them. 19. Bless the LORD, O house of Israel: bless the LORD, O house of Aaron: 20. Bless the LORD, O house of Levi: ye that fear the LORD, bless the LORD. 21. Blessed be the LORD out of Zion, which dwelleth at Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD.
Proverbs: 27. 1. Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth. 2. Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips. 3. A stone is heavy, and the sand weighty; but a fool’s wrath is heavier than them both. 4. Wrath is cruel, and anger is outrageous; but who is able to stand before envy? 5. Open rebuke is better than secret love. 6. Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful. 7. The full soul loatheth an honeycomb; but to the hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet. 8. As a bird that wandereth from her nest, so is a man that wandereth from his place. 9. Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so doth the sweetness of a man’s friend by hearty counsel. 10. Thine own friend, and thy father’s friend, forsake not; neither go into thy brother’s house in the day of thy calamity: for better is a neighbour that is near than a brother far off. 11. My son, be wise, and make my heart glad, that I may answer him that reproacheth me. 12. A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself; but the simple pass on, and are punished. 13. Take his garment that is surety for a stranger, and take a pledge of him for a strange woman. 14. He that blesseth his friend with a loud voice, rising early in the morning, it shall be counted a curse to him. 15. A continual dropping in a very rainy day and a contentious woman are alike. 16. Whosoever hideth her hideth the wind, and the ointment of his right hand, which bewrayeth itself. 17. Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend. 18. Whoso keepeth the fig tree shall eat the fruit thereof: so he that waiteth on his master shall be honoured. 19. As in water face answereth to face, so the heart of man to man. 20. Hell and destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied. 21. As the fining pot for silver, and the furnace for gold; so is a man to his praise. 22. Though thou shouldest bray a fool in a mortar among wheat with a pestle, yet will not his foolishness depart from him. 23. Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds. 24. For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation? 25. The hay appeareth, and the tender grass sheweth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered. 26. The lambs are for thy clothing, and the goats are the price of the field. 27. And thou shalt have goats’ milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and for the maintenance for thy maidens. – Bible Offline
Psalm: 126. 1. When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream. 2. Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The LORD hath done great things for them. 3. The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad. 4. Turn again our captivity, O LORD, as the streams in the south. 5. They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. 6. He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him. Psalm: 127. 1. Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. 2. It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep. 3. Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. 4. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. 5. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate. Psalm: 128. 1. Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in his ways. 2. For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee. 3. Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table. 4. Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the LORD. 5. The LORD shall bless thee out of Zion: and thou shalt see the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life. 6. Yea, thou shalt see thy children’s children, and peace upon Israel. Psalm: 129. 1. Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth, may Israel now say: 2. Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth: yet they have not prevailed against me. 3. The plowers plowed upon my back: they made long their furrows. 4. The LORD is righteous: he hath cut asunder the cords of the wicked. 5. Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Zion. 6. Let them be as the grass upon the housetops, which withereth afore it groweth up: 7. Wherewith the mower filleth not his hand; nor he that bindeth sheaves his bosom. 8. Neither do they which go by say, The blessing of the LORD be upon you: we bless you in the name of the LORD. Psalm: 130. 1. Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O LORD. 2. Lord, hear my voice: let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications. 3. If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand? 4. But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared. 5. I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope. 6. My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: I say, more than they that watch for the morning. 7. Let Israel hope in the LORD: for with the LORD there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption. 8. And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
Proverbs: 26. 1. As snow in summer, and as rain in harvest, so honour is not seemly for a fool. 2. As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come. 3. A whip for the horse, a bridle for the ass, and a rod for the fool’s back. 4. Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him. 5. Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit. 6. He that sendeth a message by the hand of a fool cutteth off the feet, and drinketh damage. 7. The legs of the lame are not equal: so is a parable in the mouth of fools. 8. As he that bindeth a stone in a sling, so is he that giveth honour to a fool. 9. As a thorn goeth up into the hand of a drunkard, so is a parable in the mouth of fools. 10. The great God that formed all things both rewardeth the fool, and rewardeth transgressors. 11. As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly. 12. Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? there is more hope of a fool than of him. 13. The slothful man saith, There is a lion in the way; a lion is in the streets. 14. As the door turneth upon his hinges, so doth the slothful upon his bed. 15. The slothful hideth his hand in his bosom; it grieveth him to bring it again to his mouth. 16. The sluggard is wiser in his own conceit than seven men that can render a reason. 17. He that passeth by, and meddleth with strife belonging not to him, is like one that taketh a dog by the ears. 18. As a mad man who casteth firebrands, arrows, and death, 19. So is the man that deceiveth his neighbour, and saith, Am not I in sport? 20. Where no wood is, there the fire goeth out: so where there is no talebearer, the strife ceaseth. 21. As coals are to burning coals, and wood to fire; so is a contentious man to kindle strife. 22. The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly. 23. Burning lips and a wicked heart are like a potsherd covered with silver dross. 24. He that hateth dissembleth with his lips, and layeth up deceit within him; 25. When he speaketh fair, believe him not: for there are seven abominations in his heart. 26. Whose hatred is covered by deceit, his wickedness shall be shewed before the whole congregation. 27. Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein: and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him. 28. A lying tongue hateth those that are afflicted by it; and a flattering mouth worketh ruin.
