A reflection on hope

A reflection for the day

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard [barricade] your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  (Philippians 4:6-7).

A reflection on hope

Heavenly Father,

We are able to see in a way that is clear that many lead a life that is busy and is often stressful. We are able to see in a way that is clear that for some there is a difficulty in seeing a way forward in a way that is clear, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that for some this means a burden that is carried is one that is heavy.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we acknowledge your gift to your world which was your only begotten Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. It is at this time many are able to see in a way that is clear a relevance of the life of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and a relevance to a death of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. It is at this time many are able to see that your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, came into your world as a poor and helpless babe. We are able to see in a way that is clear that your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, lived a life as a man, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, turned a back on a life that was worldly, in order to minister to the poor, and in order to minister to the sick, and in order to minister to the needy. We are able to see in a way that is clear that there is a need to reflect upon a death of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, as one of a suffering, and a death, and a resurrection, as one that shows all Mankind the way to you, Our Heavenly Father. We are able to see in a way that is clear that a resurrection of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is a symbol of a hope of a new beginning in a life, and a new beginning in a life will mean all Mankind must live out a faith in all aspects of a life.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that a life can be enriched by you if a faith, and if a trust, and if a belief is placed with you. We are able to see in a way that is clear that all concerns, and all worries, and all dismays, and all sadness, must be put to one side in order to enjoy a relationship with you that is enriched. We are able to see in a way that is clear that you are able to guide all Mankind in a daily life.

Heavenly Father, we ask you to guide many to have a sense of purpose that is clear. We are thankful that you are able to strengthen and protect all who seek you out in prayer. We are thankful that you are Our Forgiving Heavenly Father, and you are Our Compassionate Heavenly Father.

Heavenly Father, we ask you to guide many so that a life is one that is centred on you. We hope and we pray that many will emulate a love and a care that is there for all Mankind that is of yours. Heavenly Father, we acknowledge your love for Mankind is abundant.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we are able to see in a way that is clear that many give and have given in a way that is financial, during a time of affliction, and during a time of poverty. It is at this time we acknowledge the works that are good of all charities here in the United Kingdom. We ask you to bless the works that are good of all charities. We hope and we pray that many of your people who hold a position in power, and  many of your people who hold a position in office, and many of your people who hold a position in business, will continue to provide a finance  to a charity.

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, reigns on most high, and is, and was, and will always be, the most supreme, and the most absolute power and being, who governs over all who are of this world that we live in, now and always for evermore.

Amen.

    It is sometimes difficult to see how the Holy Father can grant all our requests and supplications. Indeed, one could say that issues raised are not always beneficial and God wisely tries to guide us to think and act differently. However, there are many concerns world wide, which do need to be addressed and I believe the old saying ‘patience is a virtue’ is relevant. People still have choice and it is only by example that changes in direction can be managed
