PRAYER FOR SUCCESS Mar 31


Father, Jesus was faithful in life and in death until His assignment of redemption was finished. Bless me to exercise that same faithfulness; being confident that You will complete the work in me and You are faithful to perform it. Regardless of the bitter-sweetness of the cup, I will remain faithful to the assignment until my purpose is finished and You are glorified as You Son Jesus did. Amen. #showersblessing #prayersforsuccess

Intimacy of Communion: Remember Him | Showers’ Blessing PicSpire | Jacqui Showers

When I was young girl I remember thinking that the table with the inscribed words, “This Do In Remembrance Of Me,” was associated with death. What I remember most is that every time someone died their body would be at the front of the church on that table. Or, so I thought it was. The wording was appropriate for the occasion seeing how someone had died and we were at a funeral remembering them.

To the mind of a young child it made perfect sense. People were wailing and crying, remembrances of their lives were being spoken and everyone was bidding their final farewells. This had to be the table where dead people were placed for their families to remember them. You have to remember that I grew up in a church where many things were not clearly explained. It was assumed that everyone knew what that table represented.

Interestingly enough, I knew about the true meaning of the table, but I didn’t associate the true meaning with the table because my perceived application of the table was more prominent than its actual purpose. I was operating on misinformation of my own pre-conceived thoughts. As we celebrate Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday in observance of Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection, it brought me back to that memory of the inscription on the table.

Not until years later, if I wasn’t grown I was almost grown, that I made the connection about what the inscription on the table truly meant. In this maturation process, I also realized that they didn’t place the deceased bodies on that table at all. You see, my mind connected the wording and the height of the table with the riser where the coffin was set on. Oh the beauty of getting wisdom and understanding!

Now that inscription on the table has become the center of my life. “This Do In Remembrance Of Me” speaks volumes as to our walk with Christ. You see, Communion was and has always been sacred to me. We were taught that you need to have your heart right and your life in order to receive Communion. I knew that if I ever took it unworthily I would meet with some unexpected calamity. True, that is a bit extreme, but it reinforced the sacredness of the experience that resulted in increased reverence.

I refer to it as an experience because that is what it is all about. It is all about experiencing Christ in His fullness. It is all about embracing a lifestyle that catapults you into a realm of commitment that completely transforms your life. It brings into focus a relationship that is unparalleled and unprecedented by any other.

Fourteen years ago, I began receiving daily Communion; twice a day, in the morning and in the evening. No, I don’t have a Communion Table erected in my house, but I do have one erected in my heart. You see, it is at the Communion Table where you begin to embrace Christ and it is also there where you make the decision to follow him closely; not a far off nor will you completely turn your back on Him. Everyone who takes Communion heart may not be prepared to receive it.

It is the ultimate remembrance that symbolizes His life, crucifixion, resurrection and triumphant return. It connects to us a force where that no limitations in this world can prevent us from becoming all God envisioned. I am consumed with the limitless love that was demonstrated on the Cross, so I could be completely free in a world full of oppression.

The beauty of it all is that it wasn’t just for me, but everyone. This Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday remember Him and in remembering Him you will come to know who God created you to be. This is the intimacy of communion.

PRAYER FOR SUCCESS Mar 30


Father, Just as Your Son entrusted His spirit to You, I implicitly trust You with my life and my future. I know You will act speedily on my behalf in delivering me from perceived imminent peril.

I find solace in knowing that when the day breaks tomorrow, I will be here once again consuming the life-sustaining water only You can provide. Amen. #showersblessing #prayersforsuccess

No Charge | Showers’ Blessing PicSpire | Jacqui Showers

Gospel artist Shirley Caesar sings a song entitled, “No Charge.” She sings about a young boy who has given his mother a list of things he has done. Beside each chore is a cost. The mother meditatively reads the list.

When she is finished she begins to write her own list. She writes down how she carried him for nine months. She goes on to write how she stayed up when he was sick. As she lists all she had done, after each one she puts no charge. At the end of the song she simply states “When you add it all up the full cost of real love is no charge.”

Oftentimes hearing the song, it causes me to think about my own mother’s sacrifices. I think about how difficult it must have been to birth and raise 10 children, while juggling their idiosyncrasies, habits, likes and dislikes to make sure they succeed. I think about the sacrifices she made so we would have, when she didn’t. As a single parent, it all falls on you. There is no one there to help carry the load. Interestingly enough, when it is all said and done each of us walked away with our own perception of our upbringing and her maternal practices.

Relationships are critical to our existence. Without them where would be. The most crucial ones are those between a parent and a child. From infancy and well into adulthood, we look to our parents for guidance and direction. We may or may not always adhere to those instructions, but we look to them to be there, regardless of our actions or how insensitive we may be about their sacrifices.

Then one day we have an epiphany that make us re-evaluate our parents. We realize what they did is priceless. There is absolutely no amount of money in this world to repay them. We can never truly comprehend the breadth and depth of those sacrifices.

More than 2000 years ago, Jesus, the sacrificial Lamb, paid a heavy price for each of us. He was beaten beyond recognition, nailed to a cross and hung as a spectacle. Although none of us were alive, the cries of the people that went forth continue to reverberate to crucify him. Our very breath and life is tied to the cross and His sacrifice.

Our society seeks to silence Him as they did in that hour. Yet the blood of the Lamb continues to cry out. Those of us who have placed his blood on the spiritual doorposts and lintels of our lives, experience the benefits of His sacrifice every day. We are no longer in bondage to the strongholds that prevent us from walking in absolute victory; because we have experienced a spiritual epiphany that propels us to unparalleled success. We unequivocally know that the power of His blood sets us free from the deathly limitations of this world.

The breadth and depth of the sacrifice is unquantifiable, yet we are qualified solely by His grace, mercy and and His sacrifice. It is the empowering presence of God that causes every death situation to pass over us. Daily we overcome by His blood and our words. Faith in His blood is the healing force that transforms our minds to live victoriously.

“What does all this cost?” No Charge!

Father, Thank You for Your Son who was deity, yet in His humanness remembered those he loved—even beyond the cross. Bless us to show the same compassion to loved ones as He did His mother. Although He was deity, He was not so heavenly-minded He lost sight of His earthly responsibility. Bless us not to be so heavenly-minded that we are no earthly good, but we fulfill our obligations to those we love all the way to eternity. Amen. #showersblessing #prayersforsuccess

Father, The worst is never the worst, because You will never fail me or walk out on me. When life becomes cumbersome and overwhelming, bless me to steal away and humbly bow down to You in prayer. Entering the silence fortifies me with a quiet confidence to wait for hope to appear. Hope never makes me ashamed. I will not despair. I am sticking it out. I will wait on You. Amen. #showersblessing #prayersforsuccess
