OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 16 APRIL 2023 BIBLE READING PSALMS 22:1-5
(To the chief Musician upon Aijeleth Shahar, A Psalm of David.) My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?
O my God, I cry in the daytime, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent.
But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them.
They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded.

Today’s Powerful Confession: I confess today that I live according to the leading of the Spirit. My flesh does not rule or direct me. I am dead to the impulses of the flesh. I do not do as my body or emotions say, I do as the spirit says in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. Hallelujah!
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 16 APRIL 2023 MESSAGE
I totally depend on God as the Source of my life and all that I do: I am nothing without Him. So, I cannot imagine what my life would be like if God ceased to hear me when I call Him. There are several reasons God Can choose to ignore the call of His children. Our memory verse for today tells us one of such reasons – ignoring the cry of the poor.
A person who heartlessly disregards the needs of the feeble and helpless is not kind, and the prayers of such a fellow will be disregarded in the days of trouble. My child, if you want God to hear your cry when you call on Him, make it a duty to help anyone you know that needs help: no matter how little it may seem to you, it gets Heaven’s attention.
I decree in the name that is above every other name that Heaven will never ignore your cry for help in Jesus’ name. Have you been ignoring the weak/poor students in your class? It’s time to reach out and help them. Remember, God has blessed you so you can be a blessing to others.

Father, make me a great source of help to the needy in Jesus’ name.
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 16 APRIL 2023 HYMN
HYMN 21 – I WANT TO BE LIKE JESUS
1. I want to be like Jesus,
So lowly and so meek;
For no one mark’d an angry word,
That ever heard Him speak,
2. I want to be like Jesus,
So frequently in prayer;
Alone upon the mountain top,
He met his Father there.
3. I want to be like Jesus,
I never, never find
That He, though persecuted was
To anyone unkind.
4. I want to be like Jesus,
Engaged in doing good;
So that of me it may be said
“He hath done what he could.”
5. I want to be like Jesus,
Who sweetly said to all,
“Let little children come to Me;”
I would obey the call.
6. But oh I’m not like Jesus,
As anyone may see;
O gentle Saviour, send Thy grace,
And make me like to Thee.
