A reflection on safe haven

Reflections of the day

Psalm 23

A psalm of David.

 The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.

At night when you can’t sleep, 
don’t count sheep – talk to the Shepherd.

“The essence of prayer does not consist in asking God for something but in opening our hearts to God, in speaking with Him, and living with Him in perpetual communion. Prayer is a continual abandonment to God. Prayer does not mean asking God for all kinds of things we want; it is rather the desire for God Himself, the only Giver of Life, Prayer is not asking, but union with God. Prayer is not a painful effort to gain from God help in the varying needs of our lives. Prayer is the desire to possess God Himself, the Source of all life. The true spirit of prayer does not consist in asking for blessings, but in receiving Him who is the giver of all blessings, and in living a life of fellowship with Him.” Sadhu Sundar Singh


A reflection upon safe haven

Heavenly Father,

Thou art the creator of thou world that we live in, and thou art creator of all things known to Mankind, and thou art creator of all things unseen by Mankind. Thou art almighty, and thou art most powerful, and we praise thou for thou power, and we praise thou for thou mightiness.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that all things are possible through thou if there is a faith and if there is an understanding of thou. Thou art a loving Father, and thou art a compassionate Father, who loves each and every one of us. We acknowledge that thou love for Mankind is one that is all encompassing, and thou love for Mankind is one that is not bound by words, and thou love for Mankind is one that is not bound by energy, and thou love for Mankind is one that is not bound by time. We acknowledge thou love for Mankind allows Mankind  to love thou with all of a heart, and to love thou with all of a soul, and to love thou with all of a mind, and to love thou with all of a strength. We acknowledge thou love for all is one that over-spills into a relationship, and is one that allows all to love thou neighbour.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time of Lent we acknowledge that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, cares for all Mankind, and has a love for all Mankind, and a care for all Mankind, and a love for all Mankind, is revealed in thou Scriptures as a care and as a love a Shepherd has for a sheep.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, revealed to all Mankind in thou Scriptures that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is able to provide a safe haven for all, and a safe haven for all is one that guides all to remain on thou path which is a path that is straight, and which is a path that is narrow, toward thou light which is eternal. We are able to see in a way that is clear that a safe haven is one that guides all to turn a back on evil, and there is a provision for all, if all choose thou way to thou through the proffering of a sin in sorrow, and with a will to incur a change in a life that is necessary, in order to reflect a repentance for a sin that has been committed.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that the care and the love given by thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is one that is nurturing, and that this is a nurturing that is one that is of a nourishment that is spiritual, and a nourishment that is spiritual is one that is available for all Mankind  through the proffering of a prayer that is proffered on a basis that is daily, and is on a basis that is regular, and through the reading of thou Scriptures, which is read on a basis that is daily, in order to perceive, and in order to discern, thou thoughts of thouself, Our Heavenly Father.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide all in a daily life, and we ask thou to guide all to bring to thouself in prayer, a worry, and a concern. We are thankful that thou cares for all Mankind, and we are thankful that thou love is for all Mankind, and thou love for all Mankind is one that is likened to that of a Shepherd who cares for all of a flock, and we are thankful that through prayer, and through a study of thou Scriptures, that many are able to be uplifted in a way that is described as spiritual.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we bring to you thou people who are held against a will. We ask at this time that thou people are able to draw a comfort by thou presence. It is at this time we uphold to thou the family known as Nubbitt who are a family who have endured much in the past six months, and we ask thou to comfort and strengthen the family known as Nubbit as there is a need to come to terms with an event that has happened.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that all Mankind has a freedom of will, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that all of what happens in thou world is due to a freedom of will. We hope and we pray that Mankind will reflect carefully upon the error of a way, and we hope and we pray that many will say sorry for an error of a way, and we hope and we pray that all will repent.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to thouself, Our Heavenly Father, all that hath been spake in thou name of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, and in thou name of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who together with thouself, Our Heavenly Father, and with thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, reigns on most high, and is, and was, and always will be, the most supreme, and the most absolute power and being, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.
