**Purpose Of This Thread: **
Often I have a miscellaneous Faith & Beliefs thought in my mind that I
want to post, but its not significant enough to merit being the Opening
Post in a thread in the Faith & Beliefs Forum, therefore I plan to use this
thread, from time to time, to post miscellaneous thoughts and notions
in the area of Faith & Beliefs.
If you have any miscellaneous thoughts in the area of Faith & Beliefs,
that you do not feel are worth their own separate thread, perhaps you
will post your miscellaneous thoughts here in this thread. We might
could eventually build a useful collection of them, a collection that
might provide some fresh ideas for new threads in the Faith & Beliefs

Here is my first one:
A devotional thought, an affirmation of faith, and a prayer:
I enjoy reading some of the great creeds of Christendom devotionally
and once I made some written notes as I was reading along and then
later I wrote the following into a prayer to God and I taped it to the
front flyleaf of my Bible and I pray this affirmation of my faith and this
prayer to the Lord regularly:
My Strong Beliefs And My Prayer:
I believe in God the Father Almighty, the Creator of heaven and
earth, and in Jesus Christ His only Son, our Lord: who was conceived
by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead and buried.
The third day He rose from the dead. He ascended into Heaven and
sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty, whence He shall
come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy worldwide church Christendom, the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.
I submit to the Sovereignty of God with humility and a prayer for mercy
and grace. I submit to the Christian Church the body of Christ as
built upon, and only upon, the teachings of the Holy Bible’s prophets
and apostles all being inspired by God. I pray to the Sovereign God
of the Bible for mercy and grace on the merits of the Lord Christ. In
the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, one God
in Three Persons. Blessed Trinity. Amen.
