As a preface to this prayer, using the syllabus’ assigned topics of call, decision making, vocation and work, I am using a basis of five actions words that have been personal and guiding for my Christian walk. These words are inspired from scripture and one day will be a book I am writing, they are; come, go, be, let and do.

Five Words

Oh Lord we stand before you in humble submission to this work we have been called to, the execution of The Great Commission to, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you … “(Matt 28:19-20 KJV).

We come as we are, heavy laden and burdened that the lost must and will hear and know the blessed freedom and safety of the Gospel of Jesus Christ that is promised to all who will believe. We now go forward into the highways and by-ways by the authority of Your name; You who sends us, trusting not in ourselves, but in the Spirit that leads us and teaches us how and what to do.

We petition you for an ever present help and strength to be Holy, as we serve a Holy God; that our witness may not be compromised by the weakness of our flesh. We pray that You will keep us in and through of our personal trials, that when we are seen the people will see only You, Lord Jesus.

Let the words of our mouths be the words of truth and love, acceptable to God Almighty, just as You spoke only what the Father had you to speak. Let us not speak personal opinions as being anything other than testimonies and witnesses to the power of God who raised our Savior from the dead. That same power that makes all who believe and receive Jesus as Lord, able to share in the new birth, the salvation made possible through the obedience and sacrifice by Jesus on the cross of Calvary.

Lord we seek that in all…...

...| Psycho-Social-Spiritual Assessment | NURS320 – Holistic Nursing | 2/26/2013 | Psycho-Social-Spiritual Assessment Psychosocial development occurs throughout one’s lifetime and may change if there are certain factors such as stress, trauma, illness, or drastic life changes. Being able to recognize maladaptive and adaptive behaviors in someone, especially a client or patient, is important when I am the one responsible for the care they will receive. Educating myself on the different topics and questions that will be used during the interview portion of assessing a patient are critical for the nursing profession. The client, SR, maintains a busy schedule daily, and reflects on traumatic past events which are affecting her wellness and state of mind. SR has had complaints of severe headaches and moderate chest pains several times a week. SR stated during the interview that she does not like to take over the counter medications for pain relief, but rather tries to sleep to relieve the pain she feels. She has previously taken herbal stress supplements to relieve chest pain. SR noted many other symptoms contributing to her state of being: fatigue, difficulty sleeping, dizziness, shortness of breath, frequent urination, abnormal menstruation, and concentration problems. Looking deeper into her family history, there are no reports of neither of her parents or any of her grandparents being treated for severe headaches or migraines, but her one sibling made reports.

Spiritual Life & Beliefs

...SPIRITUAL LIFE AND BELIEFS I do not really have a defining moment in my life where everything changed and gave up drugs and drinking and turned towards God. However, I do have a moment where I turned to him but it isn’t big and grand. Sometimes I wish this was different, sometimes I wish I had some big grand story but then again. I have been immersed in God’s life for all my entire life and I can’t complain about that. I was born in a very spiritual family with parents who had very clear and strict rules when it came to church. After I was born, as soon as I was able to recognize my surroundings I was in church. I remember a few instances when I received some spanking for trying to lie my way out of going for Sunday school. However later on I became quite an active member of every club in Sunday school, be it drama, music and even became a Boys & Girls Brigade leader. However as I grew older and past the Sunday school age, I started losing my way as I tried to figure out where I fitted best. I started moving from church to church following my friends as I tried to fit in. At this point is where I came to appreciate the importance of family worship. A person who has a meaningful plan for his children has to invite God in to his home in order to lay a firm foundation for his family. It’s at home where children should gain the true education since it’s the very first school all children must begin from. Despite thinking I’m all grown up, my parents sat me down and......

...Janice Hileman CHMN 201-B02 05/19/2014 Spiritual Gifts Paper . PART ONE: What are your top two Spiritual Gifts? Do you agree with the results? Why or why not? My top two Spiritual Gifts are: (1) Evangelism; and (2) Pastor/ Shepherd tied with Showing Mercy. I completely agree with the results . I agree because I am a very compassionate woman. I love people and also willing to help those in need. I am able to sympathize and empathize with people who may have problems that others might feel uncomfortable with. I am also a very good listener. I love to share the Gospel with others and bring the lost to know Jesus Christ. I am truly blessed to have these gifts that God has given me. PART TWO: Specifically, how can you use your gifts at this time? How might you misuse your gifts? Be specific. There are many ways I can use my gifts today. In my Church there are people who often come to me to “unload” what’s going on in their Lives. I am always there to listen and give them the best advice I can. I show mercy by going with a group from the church to visit the ones who are shut-ins and letting them know that we care for them and that they are not alone. Outside the church I volunteer for Domestic and Sexually abused women’s shelter. I do a weekly Bible study and I teach some of them how to cook. I soon will be taking the required training to be a Christian Counselor. I also post Scripture, Devotionals, and......

Spiritual Assessment

...of a Spiritual Needs Assessment Sheila Hale Grand Canyon University Spirituality in Healthcare HLT-310V-0104 August 3, 2014 Analysis of a Spiritual Needs Assessment Spirituality is an important aspect of providing holistic care to patients. The word spiritual is derived from the Latin root, spiritus, which means breath or life. According to Bryson (2013), spirituality is an inherent predisposition toward the search for meaning or value in life. Spirituality may mean different things to different people. The Joint Commission, the governing body that provides accreditation to hospitals, requires a spiritual assessment to be performed as part of the overall assessment of patients. The goal is determine if a more comprehensive assessment is needed, and whether the patient’s spiritual view has the potential to affect health outcomes (The Joint Commission, 2005). It is well established that spirituality can have a positive effect on patient outcomes, such as providing coping abilities when faced with illness. “Studies generally support the hypothesis that spirituality is correlated with favorable health outcomes” (Anandarajah & Hight, 2001, p. 85). This paper will analyze a spiritual assessment performed and provide a summary of the assessment interview. Any significant discoveries about the individual, barriers, and/or challenges to the assessment will be discussed. It will also describe the experience and provide feedback on the use of the spiritual tool......

Spiritual Gifts

...My Spiritual Gifts Part 1 [pic] Eunice T. Payne June 5, 2014 Revised August 13, 2014 INTRODUCTION When I was asked to go online and take a spiritual gift test my first thought was, (“Lord what the world is coming to”?) We really have to rely on the internet for everything these days?” Then I thought hey why not take it what can it hurt, I’ll go on and humor them. As I started to read the questions I felt like the questions needed more substance or needed to be worded differently; not realizing the devil was trying to discourage me from reading what I was about to find out. \ By the time I finished the test it read PASTOR, FAITH, GIVING. Each word had a meaning or explanation for each one. I looked real hard at “Pastor” and laugh then I called my son who is a minister and yes he’s from the old school like his momma. I said son I just took this test and explained to him what is was for. Of course he had the same reaction as I did when I was told about the site. He laughed. Well as we went on in conversation I gave him the end results and said now what I look like being a Pastor. I mean I have been around a lot of spiritual gifted people for most of my life and have been told by several that there’s an anointing on my life or that my light shines bright and have a spirit of victory, but never did I hear anyone say I would be a pastor or fit those shoes. Then a voice said you have been ministering to people young and old for over 20 years and you don’t...

Foundation

...This was my first footstep of starting my degree life. First day of attending the Foundation of Business course, the feeling of tension filled me up. The main reason was because I have to adapt the new course and environment. This course is taught by Ms. Khor Siu Gek, an approachable and friendly lecturer. When I first glance over the module guide, this is quite a different course since it contains 100% coursework mark. In the first lecture class, Ms. Khor explained about what we are going to do throughout this course. The 100% coursework mark is divided into four categories which are portfolio, group project, essay on a given assignment and attendance. We need to provide evidence such as draft, notes and pictures as a proof to show the accomplishment of learning process. Some activities will be carried out in every tutorial class to ensure that students are participating in classes. Then, we need to express our feeling and provide relevant theories learnt in the reflective report weekly. This is to improve our learning skills, communication skills, time management skills and critical thinking skills. I can still remember clearly that Ms. Khor had made the introduction part became very interesting. She gave us a roll of toilet paper and asked us to take how many pieces we wanted to take. I felt nervous because I did not know what activities would be carried out. Finally, I took a piece of toilet paper. After that, she asked us to tell our secret according to the number of...

Spiritual Disaster

...this type of crisis individual, group, and community suffer loss of property, love ones, cultural unity and spiritual belief in isolation. Although they are given material supports and even moral supports, it cannot be compared with the spirituality effectiveness that survivors gone through. This is a major issue which needs to be addressed apart from medical treatment, spiritual restoration should be put in place to help resolve the immediate crisis and help restore the victim to a sense of normalcy or level of functioning equal to or higher than prior to the crisis. Most disaster survivors tend to look for higher power as a source for strength and hope during these difficult times. Therefore spiritual care providers should be made available to assist them to regain their trust in God and healing of minds. Many people will experience spiritual stress reactions during or after a disaster. During disasters, a diverse cross-section of people seek spiritual care. Religious leaders will be challenged to support and offer an open environment with respect to religious diversity, social diversity, and unfamiliar cultural and mass care settings. These tips can guide you as you help your congregants and the broader community during relief efforts and as they recover from the impact of a disaster. Pay attention to self-care as you care for others. To be effective, spiritual care providers should become educated in various aspects of disaster response. Community nurses are among......

The Foundation...

...Joshua Lecour 15 October 2015 Essay #2 The majority of adults today have a stable home life, which helps to build a stable foundation by the time they reach grade school. That’s all in thanks to having loving and caring parents, grandparents and caretakers to guide kids so that they can preform at the highest levels in life, especially scholastically. In a perfect world having a solid system like this to build on would be the perfect catapult for success in America’s school systems. Unfortunately, most children in the inner cities aren’t blessed to have a stable home because of the absence of consistent parental figures in the house. Sometimes these households have one parent within them because of divorce or other more saddening circumstance like the death of a parent. Death leads to an absence within a child life that will persist into their adult life. Despite the timing or reason behind these situations they greatly affect a child’s confidence, self-esteem and self worth. Instability within the household causes a child to suffer anxiety disorders and self-confidence issues, depending on the situations that occur like physical or substance abuse by the parent, which is taken with them into the classroom. This kind of conditioning at home also shapes the ability to interact with other students in a positive or negative way, which also leads to poor academic and social standing within a school setting. The easiest way to remedy the issues of poor performance in school......

The Holy Spirit and Spiritual Gifts

...The Holy Spirit and the Spiritual Gifts Natalie Barrionuevo Liberty University Introduction Growing up in and out of church I have not only heard about the Holy Spirit but also seen the works of the Holy Spirit and the gifts that accompany it. The Holy Spirit plays a key role in a Christian’s daily life. God has given us this companion as a substitute for himself to lead and guide us on our Christian walk. With this companion comes gifts which we have the ability to receive through Christ to help us along our journey. Here, we will discuss the baptism of the Holy Spirit and the spiritual gifts that can accompany it. Holy Spirit Theological Definition Baptism in the Spirit is the moment when the spirit begins to operate in a believer’s life. Being baptized in the spirit does not mean you are more spiritually mature or holier than the next person. Spirit baptism cannot be equated with receiving the gifts of the spirit. (Elwell, 1996) Biblical Foundation The Holy Spirit is discussed throughout the entire bible. In Genesis 1: 2 it states “The earth was formless and empty, and the darkness covered the deep waters, and the spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters” (KJV/NLT, 2005). This is the......

Spiritual Jounrey

...My spiritual journey is probably much like yours, with the main goal of trying to discover myself. What I like, and what I don’t like. What I believe, and what I don’t believe. Who I want to be, and who I don’t want to be. Although I’ve only had 21 years to work on this, I’ve come quite a long way from where I started. My grandfather was a minister, so ever since I can remember I have been attending church. It wasn’t until I was 12 however that I really found a connection to what some would call The Mystery, a Higher Power, or as I refer to it, God. There is a place in Jaffrey, NH called Monadnock Bible Conference. They run Christian based week long retreats year round for young adults, and it is here that I consider the beginning of my journey. These retreats were full of fun and games along with two worship services each day. These worship sessions were much like sermons, but catered to youth to keep us engaged. We listened to youth pastors and young adult speakers from all over the country who challenged and guided us in our faith. Along with these speakers were incredible Christian rock bands who played songs that moved us to get up and dance, and even knee down and pray. I remember attending one of the retreats right after starting 7th grade. I was overwhelmed by my new school, the peer pressure of new friends, and other typical 13 year old problems. I was listening to one of the speakers talk about how amazing God is, that when you have a relationship with him you......

Spirituals

...Spirituals Swing Low, Sweet Chariot If you view the song as carrying a religious message, explain what the chariot represents. What is meant by the word "home"? What is the overall subject of the song? The chariot represents death. The poet asks it to come carry him/her home. Home means heaven. The subject of the song is being tired and wanting to die peacefully. This is an old slavery song and is sung in many churches. If you interpret this song as a protest song, depicting a slaves desire for freedom, explain what the chariot represents. What is meant by the word "home"? What does Jordan, the river that formed the boundary to the Promised Land in ancient times, represent in this case? What does the "band of angels" represent? I do not view this song as a protest song, but if it were, the chariot would mean rescue and home would still mean heaven or a place of freedom. Jordan would represent the gate to heaven and the band of angels would represent a rescue party. For what types of situations would people write protest songs today? People might write protest songs about events like the attack on Paris or about certain political figures. Give an example of a modern-day protest song (name and artist who performs it) and briefly summarize what message it contains. (You do not need to provide the lyrics.) An example of a modern-day protest song is “Wake Me Up When September Ends” by Green Day. The song is protesting the Bush Organization and 9/11. Go Down,......

Spiritual Dispilines

...• Disciplines of Abstinence • The spiritual disciplines of abstinence reveal the nature of the battle between the flesh and the spirit. By abstaining from food, social interaction, or sleep, we are "exercising" our spiritual muscles against the lower nature. It is like lifting weights; silly in itself, but useful to prepare us for real physical tests in the future. The things we abstain from in the spiritual disciplines are not evil; it is for the sake of the exercise that we deny ourselves; to prepare us for real temptation--tomorrow, or the next day. 1 Cor 6:12 (KJV) All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any. • The disciplines of abstinence give us much needed experience and insight into the spiritual battle going on within us, and the lessons learned cannot be taught any other way. What is it like to say "No" to the lower nature? What tricks will it play? The way in which desire, habit, distraction, and other factors effect you will not be like anyone else. You must learn by doing how to live in holiness before God in your body. The disciplines of abstinence are an opportunity to train in safety. 1 Pet 2:11 (Phi) I beg you, as those whom I love, to live in this world as strangers, and "temporary residents", to keep clear of the desires of your lower natures, for they are always at war with your souls. 1 Pet 1:13 (NIV) Therefore, prepare your minds for action; be......
