A reflection on renewal

Reflections for the day

Jeremiah 17:10

“I the LORD search the heart
and examine the mind,
to reward each person according to their conduct,
according to what their deeds deserve.”

Colossians 3:2

 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.

Romans 12:2

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

“Prayer wonderfully clears the vision; steadies the nerves; defines duty; stiffens the purpose; sweetens and strengthens the spirit.”

 S.D. Gordon

A reflection on renewal

Heavenly Father,

Thou art the creator of thou world that we live in, and thou hath created all things known to Mankind, and thou hath created all things unseen by Mankind. Thou art almighty, and thou art most powerful, and we praise thou, and we exalt thou name on high.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that many are able to see in a way that is clear that thou hath revealed thou self through thou Creation, and through thou glory.

Heavenly Father, thou art a loving Father, and thou art a compassionate Father, and thou hath made a provision for each and all of us in terms of a need. Thou knoweth of a strain, and thou knoweth of a stress that is of one in a daily life,  and thou knoweth of a strain, and thou knoweth of a stress that  there is in a service to thou, and in a service for another.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that many have a belief, and many have a thought, and many have an idea, and many have an opinion, and many have a conviction, and many have a prejudice, that is one that is formed by an influence of another. A thought, an idea, an opinion, a conviction, and a prejudice, is one that is formed by what is seen, and is one that is formed by what is experienced, and that all of these things are ones that can be tainted by ways that can be described as sinful, and all of these things are ones that can be tainted by ways that can be described as selfish.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou knoweth our every thought, and we acknowledge that there is a need to renew a mind, so that a mind will reflect thou purity, and so that a mind will reflect thou righteousness, and so that a mind will reflect thou love, and so that a mind will reflect thou joy.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that at a time in the future that many will desire to turn to thou, and we acknowledge that in order to draw closer to thou many will need to say sorry for the error of a way, and that many will need to ask thou to forgive many for an error of a way, and that many will need to make a change in a life that will reflect a sorrow for an error of a way.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that through a forgiveness, and through a repentance, many will be able to remain upon thou path which is one that is straight, and which is one that is narrow, toward thou light which is eternal. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou desire is for all Mankind to have a thought, and to speak a word, and to do a deed, that is in an alignment with thou will.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are times in a life when all will fall short in thou expectation. Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide all Mankind in a daily life, and we ask thou to strengthen a resolve to address an area for which there is a concern of thou. We are able to see in a way that is clear that there is a need to give of a self to thou in a prayer that is proffered on a basis that is regular, and is on a basis that is daily, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there is a need to give of a self in a study of thou Scripture, which is on a basis that is daily, and that there is a need to give of a self to worship thou, which is on a basis that is weekly, and there is a need to give of a self in service to thou, and there is a need to give of a self in service to another.

Heavenly Father, we are thankful that thou hath blessed Mankind with “every spiritual blessing in the heavenlies in Christ.” We are thankful that although a body will become aged, and that although a physical capability may become impaired, that we can be assured of thou renewal of a spirit, and that we can be assured of thou renewal of a heart, and we can be assured of thou renewal of a soul when we turn to thou always.

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 thou Holy Spirit, reigns on most high, and is, and was, and always will, be the most supreme, and the most absolute power, and being, that advocates for all Mankind, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

    We acknowledge that it is difficult to change our ways and thoughts in the present age and know that we can be ridiculed for our stance in Holy Matters. We ask that thou help us to withstand the knocks and strains of daily life and move forward with our heads held high. Amen
