Note: There is a prayer near the end of this posting.
I confess that I'm a smoker. How long have I been addicted? Well, of late, the habit has progressed. I don't want a cessation patch. I want to smoke. I'm not satisfied with second hand smoke. I want my own fire. Light me up, Scotty.
What's my brand? Kingdom Flames, packaged in red, white, and black with a flaming arrow dead center. And these "babies" have the "good housekeeping" seal of approval with no adverse side effects. Who is the manufacturer? GOD - WHO has exclusive rights to this fire hot brand.
The smokes come twenty in a pack, signed. sealed, and delivered by our mountain smoking GOD. Exodus 20:18, "And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking:..."

Prayer for those who smoke cigarettes and anything else that's not healthy:
Devoted Father GOD, You are strong and mighty, beyond all that we think, say or know. Your Word in Psalm 18:2 - KJV says, "The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower."
Lord, You delivered me from smoking years ago. I smoked almost a pack a day. Thank You, Lord, that Your blessed fire lit me up and Your love, power and strength delivered me. Please deliver others who are gripped by smoking and other addictions. Help them to steadfastly invest in You to gain knowledge and power to conquer. You won't do it all, Lord, but certainly You work with us to change that which displeases You. Teach us how, in all of our ways, to steadfastly bring You joy, pleasure and delight.
Thank You, Lord - Amen.
