  1. Bruce your words of wisdom today. Day 16 brought a smile to my face. It reminded me of the days here in Ireland when the Redemptive Priest gave us a Parish Mussion! It was all Fire and Hell! They put the Fear of God in everyone. But in a Sad sense. I came to the Conclusion that sadly I was Beyond Salvation! It reminded me of been in trouble for Staying Out Late! Your parents were going to go Mad so you might as well stay out longer and get the Same treatment!!!
    And so when my drink and drug addiction caught up with me. I applied the same theory. I ended up in prison believing the God did have favourites. But I was not one of them. I lived a totally different life back then. Thankfully the Sovereign Lord Jesus Lifted Me Up Out Of My Misery!
    We have a program here in Ireland where the very famous Host asks very famous Celebrities ” The Meaning Of Life ”
    Some amazing answers. Always the last question asked is ” What If It Is All Real and Jesus Does Exist? What will you say? Again the answers are amazing.
    I always believed that Jesus existed but that He was going to Beat Me about the head with the Bible and the Book of Records he was Storing Up on Me! How sad is that Image?
    But today I firmly Believe that Jesus will Ask Me One Question?
    Who did you bring? As simple as that! When I took you from the depths of your Addiction, Who did you Tell? When I gave you New Life who did you Tell? When I Baptised You In the Holy Spirit Who did you Tell? So we are All called to Evangelize! To be like the ONE Leopard that came back to give thanks. Be be like the Samaritan woman at Jacobs well. To go back into our community and to Proclaim the Good News what God has Done and Will Do if only we Say but the Word. In Jesus Name Amen

      1. Many thanks Olivia. Much appreciated as we wait in Joyful Hope of the Coming of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. United in Prayer with the Mother of Our Saviour. Amen

  2. Lord i hope i am not being selfish asking you for healing for myself i have very painfull mouth ulcers. thank you Jesus for always hearing my prayers.

  3. Mary I too have had really painful mouth ulcers and I discovered it was some new toothpaste I was using. Have a look at your toothpaste and choose one with no additives like whitening etc. Just choose a basic toothpaste like Colgate original.

    1. Mary, I can assure you, you’re not being selfish. Please allow me to remind you that Jesus took care of ulcers on the cross, therefore you are indeed healed, just walk in it. I join you in your prayers. Remember the word says where two or three touch and agree, it shall be done.

  4. Bruce, I agree with you when you say we need to have a personal relationship with Jesus. Without Him, I would be a lost soul. I am not perfect, but with His grace, I am striving to be a better person. I find it very rewarding to sit before the Blessed Sacrament and be filled with His Love and Peace. I would like to encourage everyone, time permitting to come and sit in His Presence and be filled with His love.

  5. I love God and have been truly blessed with 3 wonder children and 5 grandchildren. I ask God to help me to continue to teach my children and grandkids to appreciate our blessing that you have bestowed on us and to be grateful enough to share what you have blessed us with.

  6. Bruce,Day 16 lesson was exactly what I needed to hear.Sometimes I get all caught up in saying all the mandatory prayers that I need to say that my relationship with Jesus & prayer life becomes lackluster & Laodicean,i take for granted my relationship with Jesus & my blessings.I forget why I’m here,as a witness.Martin your testimony was an amazing one.The beauty in it is God loves you just for you.You don’t have to prove yourself worthy,you always were.It’s in the trials that we are closest to God.Even those trials are a blessing,God uses those trials for the good.He’s always with us.Amen!

    1. Amen Pat Amen
      You are so right. Only when we look back at the Foothprints in the sand do we realise that Jesus was carrying us! He did indeed use all my time in Foster care, lock up in mental hospital and even Prison! Even ending up in ICU for 6 days. All these Trials He used for His Glory and all we have to do is to Surrender our Will and our Lives over to Him. United in Prayer. Amen

  7. Dear Lord, Thank you for all the blessings you have given me. I ask today that you please bless my children. Help my oldest son to come back to the church and to guide his decisions in the future. Help my other son continue to pursue his dreams and guide him also to make good choices. Lord, please guide my daughter to forgive herself of past wrong decisions and guide her to make better choices in her future. Help all of my children to be happy and spread their faith to others. I ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

  8. Thank you Bruce.
    We go through many stages in life, where ever we are today I pray this is where God wants us to be. And if it’s not please make the change to get where God wants you to be. God is good and his love is awesome. Blessings my brothers and sisters.

  9. Dear Bruce, I have to tell you , some of your messages have me laughing out loud. Every day this month you have blessed me. I just plain love you. I wish you and Rosemary lived in my little town of about 200 high in the Rockies of Colorado and I would invite the two of you over for Thanksgiving dinner this week. I’m already cooking for it. But the truth of the matter is, you’re doing all the work, aren’t you. When I come before God He may say, “Yes, I know Bruce Downes, but who are you?” Lord Jesus, please forgive me for all the things I am not doing, that You ask me to do. Please forgive me for not being all you meant me to be. And thank you for Bruce.

  10. Thank you Bruce for your thougtful and inspirational message. Yes I believe every one of us jump to conclusions in situations without knowing all the facts. Sometimes maybe we need to stop and think about walking in the other persons shoes. Consider you do not know exactly what is going on with them or where they have been. Others may need just our smile or just a kind word or encouragement to lift their spirit and praise God.

  11. I ask for prayers for my family, friends, and acquaintances that forgiveness as well as understanding should bring us together not separate us. That each of us did what we thought was best. In Jesus name Amen.

  12. Thank you Father God for your grace mercy favor blessings & miracles in my life and life of my family and friends.Thank you Father God for being in every aspect of my life because I can’t do it without you.Thank you Father God for your everlasting enternal Love that you have for us and for me and my loving spouse El we can’t do this without you I need you & I Thank you Father God.In Jesus name.Amen Amen

  13. With faith I pray in Jesus name that God continually deliver me as well as all that have to do with me that are in accordance with His will from all evil totally and permanently. Amen.

  14. I pray for my immediate family members & myself; also Shamani & Chandrika
    I pray that God will reveal himself to us and send the Holy Spirit to work in us and through us.
    That He will make straight our paths and guide us to coming to the right conclusions that will lead us to His chosen path and purpose for each and everyone of us. In Jesus Name I pray and through the power of the Holy Spirit Amen.
    Thank you Bruce & team
