Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer.

A Reflection on faiths

Heavenly Father,

We are able to see in a way that is clear that many of your people in your country known as the United Kingdom are unable to come to terms with the role that faith plays in a society. We are able to see in a way that is clear that many see a divide that exists between faiths, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that many of your young people have failed to grasp the principles of teachings in Christianity,a teaching which forms a basis in law, and a teaching which forms a  basis in culture, and that many  fail to see that a faith offers a guidance in the way a life should be led.

Heavenly Father, much has been said in the media about the practices of Christianity within the work place, and much has been said in the media about the rights of an individual. Much has been said in the media about a role that The Government, and about a role that the Courts of the land, and about a role that the European Court of Human Rights should play in interpreting a law regarding the freedom of speech.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that all interpretations that are made are made in consideration for the rights of all individuals.

Heavenly Father, there are many Christians who desire to profess a faith in such a way that is in obtrusive, and there are many Christians who are unable to do so because of what is described as a political correctness. We are able to see in a way that is clear that there are times when Christians feel that Christians are marginalised, and there are times when Christians lose a job or a profession because of a faith in Christianity.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are occasions when Christians feel a need is overlooked, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that all of your people, irrespective of a faith that is held must be treated with compassion, and must be treated with respect, and must have a need catered for that will not single themselves out as being different.

Heavenly Father,we hope and we pray that many Christians will see in a way that is  clear that there is a need to be more open about a faith amongst a  family member, and that there is a need to be more open about a faith amongst a  friend, and that there is a need to be more open about a faith amongst a work colleague. Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that when this is difficult to do so that many will turn to you in prayer to be upheld, that many will turn to you in prayer to be strengthened, and that many will turn to you in prayer to be sustained by your grace and to be sustained  by your mercy.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time that many believe that all faiths have a place in society, and it is at this time that many believe that all must be allowed to demonstrate a faith in a way that is acceptable. 

Heavenly Father, you are a caring Father, and you are a compassionate Father, and you are Our Heavenly Father, whose desire it is for all Mankind to be at one with you, and to be at one with your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and to be at one with your Holy Spirit.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to you now all that has been said in the name of yourself, Our Heavenly Father, and in the name of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who together with your Holy Spirit, reigns on most high, and is the advocate, and is the most supreme, and is the most absolute power and being that governs all who are of this world that we live in, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.
