A reflection for the day on alcohol

A reflection for the day

The purpose of prayer is to reveal the presence of God equally present, all the time, in every condition.

A reflection for the day on alcohol

Heavenly Father,

The perils of alcohol are ones that are causing a hazard to health to many at this time, and this hazard to health is one that must not be disregarded. Many are unable to see in a way that is clear that a consumption of alcohol that exceeds a moderate amount is one that will incur a change in a health for many, and is one that will incur a death for some at an age that for many is less than desirable.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we acknowledge that much of what is reported in the media about the behaviour of all is as a result of the consumption of alcohol. We are able to see in a way that is clear that in order for many to see a way forward in a way that is clear that all will need to perceive, and all will need to discern, what is described by many as a level of consumption of alcohol that is safe. We acknowledge that many accept that a consumption of alcohol in a way that is moderate is acceptable, and we acknowledge that much has been said in the media about what a moderate amount of alcohol is.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that a child must be safeguarded from a situation where the consumption of alcohol has been consumed in a way that can be described as excessive. We are able to see in a way that is clear that all children must be able to grow up in a way that is acceptable, in terms of being safeguarded from a situation where the consumption of alcohol has been consumed in a way that can be described to an excess, so that all children will feel loved, and so that all children will feel safe, and so that all children will feel a need of a child is being addressed.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that a number of recommendations of this Government are effected so that the consumption of alcohol is one that can be addressed by the closure of a bar that serves a child, and by the closure of a bar that serves a young person, who is one who is described as one who is under-age, and by the closure of a bar that serves another who has drunk alcohol to an excess, and by addressing a concern that there is for a price of alcohol that is deemed to be somewhat low.

Heavenly Father, we ask you to guide all Mankind in a life that is daily, and we ask you to guide some to see a way forward in a way that is clear that all must lead a life that is fitting and is one that avoids a consumption of alcohol that is one that is to an excess, and is one that hurts another, and is one that alarms another, and is one that derides another.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to yourself, Our Heavenly Father, all that has been said in the name of yourself, Our Heavenly Father, who together with your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and your Holy Spirit, reigns on most high, and sitteth at the right side of you, Our Heavenly Father, now and always, for evermore.

Amen

  1. Now that I am in my ‘twilight’years, I realise that I have been guilty in the past of partaking too much alcohol and now imbibe very little. Youngsters like to experiment and will not listen to the wise advice of their elders and, it has to be said,find out from their follies. The scourge of binge drinking is putting lives of this generation at risk of poor health and we would ask that common sense and education prevail.
