Poti vedea intelepciunea lui Dumnezeu in modul in care este o banana?

Sa faci , o , Isuse...

Blândul păstor

Odata L-am vazut trecând
Cu turma pe păstorul blând
Mergea cu dânsa la izvor
Blândul păstor, blândul păstor

Pe-o oaie ce cazuse jos
A ridicat-o el frunos
Si-a dus-o-n brate iubitor
Blândul păstor, blândul păstor

Pe alta care la pamânt
Zacea cu piciorusul frânt
El o lega mângâietor
Blândul păstor, blândul păstor

El le-a iubit cu dor nespus
Si viata pentru oi si-a pus
Si pentru mântuirea lor
Blândul păstor, blândul păstor

Iar mai târziu L-am întâlnit
Cu spini era împodobit
Într-o multime de popor
Blândul păstor, blândul păstor

Când L-am vazut L-am întrebat
Cine sunt cei ce L-au scuipat
Atunci a suspinat usor
Blândul păstor, blândul păstor

Si mi-a raspuns duios si lin
Cei ce mi-au pus cununi de spini
Sunt oile ce le-am fost lor
Un blând păstor, un blând păstor

Iar cei ce ma batjocoresc
Si cei ce crucea-Mi pregatesc
Sunt cei la care iubitor
Le-am fost păstor,le-am fost păstor

Iar cei ce ma lovesc turbati
Sunt oile care pe brat
Le-am dus la câmp si la izvor
Ca un păstor, ca un păstor

Tacu si ochii lui senini
De lacrimi limpezi erau plini
Plângea de mila oilor
Blândul păstor, blândul păstor

Si-atuncea oile-au venit
Pe cruce sus L-au rastignit
Iar El plângea de mila lor
Blândul păstor, blândul păstor

What Jesus Did! - Model Prayer

So when you pray, you should pray like this: 'Our Father in heaven, we pray that your name will always be kept holy. We pray that your kingdom will come, and that the things you want will be done here on earth, the same as in heaven.

Give us the food we need for each day. Forgive the sins we have done, the same as we have forgiven the people that did wrong to us. Don't let us be tempted (tested); but save us from the Evil One (the devil).'
- Matthew 6:9-13 (ERV)


Much has been written about Jesus' model prayer. Rather than something to be blindly recited, this is a short guide for disciples on how to pray. The prayer easily divides into two parts: first, we recognize the inestimable greatness of God, and then we recognize our dependency upon him.

As the previous verses indicate, God is our Father whom we can approach freely as Father, while at the same time revering his holiness. The first three petitions ask God to accomplish his ultimate will in our world and reveal his holy purposes to all people.

The second three acknowledge our need for sustenance, forgiveness, and strength to face the rigors of daily spiritual and physical life. Bottom line: prayer doesn't need to be eloquent, but reverent of God, penitent before God, and dependent upon God while approaching him with confidence as his children.


Holy and tender Father, I pray that you exert your power in our world and work your will in irrefutable and glorious ways. I trust you to fill my daily needs as I depend upon your mercy and grace to forgive me and empower me to forgive. May my life be used in your service to accomplish your will. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
