Prayer of/for Salvation

Merciful Father,

I do confess that I am a sinner, and I desperately need a Savior.

Lord Jesus, I BELIEVE that YOU alone died to save my soul from sin, and I accept Your sacrifice of shed blood through God’s redemptive plan as the only way for my sins to be forgiven and me to be saved.

I confess that Jesus the Christ is Lord, and I BELIEVE IN MY HEART that God raised Him from the dead. I ask You, Holy Father God, to please forgive my sins, come into my heart and life to live, rule, and reign there as my Lord, Savior, and Master forever. I want to be YOUR child and YOURS only.

In the Wonderful and Powerful Name of Jesus the Christ of Nazareth Who came in the flesh I pray and declare that from this day forward, I AM SAVED.



If you prayed that prayer and meant it, you are HIS forever.

God bless you, and welcome to the Family of Christ!

A Nice One

“Serenity” © 2017 SJ Palmer

I got so carried away with a personal distraction yesterday that I didn’t give proper attention to the truth that my painting has really improved. This work is called, “Serenity”… named so by my husband.  I probably would have called it Birch Meadow or something like that but, either way, I’m pleased with it and want it to have its props.

Oh, yeah… I’m definitely just a hobbyist painter – nothing even amateur level about my work – but I was once a not-so-good hobbyist, and now I believe I’m a good one. Not fishing, just stating truth IMO. Half of that status is having fun, right? In that case, I’ve definitely arrived! 🙂

Practice pays off when it meets God’s mercy and kind impartations. No more stick figures for me, folks… I’ve finally learned to paint AND enjoy it.

This is a nice one! 🙂


Nice feeling…

I’ve gotten some positive feedback on my art lately… but from works I’ve posted on a different  blog site .

I wanted to make note of what a nice feeling it is to bless others with my art, especially since painting is a new gift to me from God. There’s blessing others and there’s the blessing I get from being appreciated.  We all want to be loved, and God sees to it that we are; but it’s a nice feeling when people share their love, too.

Thank the Lord.
