A reflection on the Christian Faith

Reflections for the day

Hebrews 11:1-3

Faith in Action

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for. By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.

Faith, and hope, and patience and all the strong, beautiful, vital forces of piety are withered and dead in a prayerless life. The life of the individual believer, his personal salvation, and personal Christian graces have their being, bloom, and fruitage in prayer.

– E. M. Bounds

A reflection on The Christian Faith (one of several)

Heavenly Father,

We are able to see in a way that is clear that many are able to express a love for you, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that the love that is expressed by yourself, Our Heavenly Father, for all Mankind is one that is all encompassing. We are able to see in a way that is clear that the love that you have for all Mankind is one that endures, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that the love that you have for all Mankind is one that is eternal. We acknowledge that many are able to see in a way that is clear that the love you have for Mankind is one that is there for all, and that the love you have for Mankind is one that you desire all to know, and all to perceive, and all to discern.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that some are unable to see how some can love you, and we acknowledge that some prefer to see rather than believe, and we acknowledge that some would prefer to have a proof or to have an evidence of the existence of you. We acknowledge that many know that to have a faith of you is to believe and is to trust in the unseen, and we acknowledge that many know that to have a faith of you is to believe without question.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that Mankind will reflect carefully on the meaning of a faith of you, and we hope and we pray  that many can accept that to have a faith of you is to believe in your existence without a proof, and without an evidence.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that many have a faith of you that is strong, and we acknowledge that many are many are able to accept your existence without a proof and without an evidence, and we acknowledge that many are able to accept your existence without a need to hear a response to a prayer that is upheld in the name of yourself.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we desire for Mankind to turn to you in faith, and it is at this time we desire Mankind to recognise your existence, and it is at this time we desire Mankind to say sorry for the error of a way.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that some desire that a faith of you is stronger, and we acknowledge that some desire that you will make your presence known to a self. We are able to see in a way that is clear that you make your presence known in a number of ways, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that these ways are ones that are commonly known as a coincidence. Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that many will understand that a coincidence that happens in a life happens for a reason. Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that many will understand that a coincidence that happens in a life happens in your own time. Heavenly Father, we ask you to guide many to be aware of a response to a prayer, and we ask you to guide many to understand that a prayer cannot always be answered in the way that we hope a prayer will be answered.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to yourself all that has been said in the name of yourself, Our Heavenly Father, and in the name of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and in the name of your Holy Spirit, who lives within Man, and who dwells amongst Man, and who advocates for Man, now and always for evermore.

Amen.

    Feeling at peace within oneself is the result of having faith in thou presence and not expecting immediate replies to requests in prayer. Amen
