DO YOU FEEL ABANDONED?
Last updated 9/10/2015 at 4:30pm
Rita Bear Gray went through a lot of trauma growing up in northern Saskatchewan. Her father was an abusive alcoholic, her mother kidnapped her and then abandoned her along the way. She was bullied in school and finally quit. Yet Creator had a hold of her life all those years. When she came to know Creator and his Son, Jesus, she found her true identity in Him. What’s your life been like? Would you like to know who you are and your future as an Indigenous person? You can.
Here’s how to ask Jesus into your life:
• Tell God that you want to accept His way to know true peace and joy.
• Tell Him that you know that without His help, you understand that you will be separated from God in life and death.
Accept Jesus as God’s only provision to deal with your separation from Him.
• Invite Jesus, God’s Son, to take control of your life and place you in His care.
Pray this Prayer (or put it in your words)
Dear God, I accept Your way. I believe Your Son Jesus died for my sins so I can become part of the family of God. Because You raised Jesus from the dead, I can experience “Harmony of Life” with Your Son as my Shepherd. I’m sorry and turn from my sins and ask You, God, to take charge of my life. I ask your Holy Spirit to come and fill me now with Your presence and power that I will live each day walking on Your Path. I offer this prayer to You through Your Son, Jesus. Amen.
