A reflection on having courage

Reflections for the day

Deuteronomy 31:6

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Proverbs 3:5-6

 Trust in the LORD with all your heart

 and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.

Ephesians 6:10-11

The Armour of God

 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armour of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.


A reflection on having courage

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 for thou power and for thou mightiness.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thouself, and thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, are at one with thou Holy Spirit. We acknowledge that thou, and thou Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, is thou source of all wisdom, and is thou source of all counsel, and we acknowledge that thouself,  and thou Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, stand supreme above all.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we desire to hear thou voice, and we desire that thou can guide Mankind with thou wisdom, and with thou counsel, and we desire that thou can guide many to tread a path which is one that is straight, and which is one that is narrow, toward thou light which is one that is eternal.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that many are able to see in a way that is clear that some live a life that can be described as one that is of difficulty. Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou call to each and all is for Mankind to be faithful to thou, and we acknowledge in order to be faithful to thou there is a need to place a faith in thou, and there is a need to place a trust in thou, and there is a need to place a belief in thou. We acknowledge in order to understand a relationship with thou, there is a need to reflect upon thou word that must be  perceived, and thou word that must be discerned in thou Scriptures, and there is a need to proffer a pray to thou on a basis that is regular, throughout a day.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide all Mankind to gain an insight from thou word, and we ask thou to guide all Mankind to gain a wisdom from thou word, and we ask thou to help many to gain a sense of stability from thou word, and we ask thou to help many to gain a peace of mind from thou word.

Heavenly Father, many are able to see in a way that is clear  that thou world that we live in is a world that can be described as one that is temporal, and that to be thou obedient servant will mean that, at times, there is a need to turn a back on what is described as a world that is secular, and that in order to do so requires all to be faithful to thou always. We are able to see in a way that is clear that in order to be obedient to thou will mean that there is a  need to have courage, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that in order to be obedient to thou will mean there is a need to be dignified, and we are able to see in a way that is clear  that by a knowledge that thou is able to strengthen all who seek thou out for strength, in terms of needing what is described as courage, and what is described as tenacity, and that thou guidance is one that will always enable another to have courage.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that there is a need to have courage in order to follow thou, and that to follow thou requires a measure of risk in thou world to place a faith, and to place a trust, and to place a belief in what is unseen by Mankind.

Heavenly Father, thou Scriptures reveal many who are of courage, and we acknowledge that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, revealed the nature of what can be described as courage during a time on earth. We ask thou to help all to “stand firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel.”

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we uphold to thou many who show a courage in the face of adversity, and we are thankful that many are able to turn to thou during a time of difficulty, and we are thankful that thou can strengthen all and  we are thankful that thou can guide all.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that at a time when a courage is needed that many will reflect carefully upon a situation and turn to thou for guidance. We hope and we pray that Mankind is able to see that thou art Our Heavenly Father who is faithful to all, and we hope and we pray that Mankind is able to see that thou art Our Heavenly Father who hath wisdom, and we hope and we pray that Mankind is able to see thou art Our Heavenly Father who is our counsellor, and we hope and we pray that Mankind is able to see thou can guide all, and that thou art with all, 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 Holy Spirit, who reigns over all who are of this world that we live in, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

    Heavenly Father, it is at this time that we commend to you those young soldiers who have given their lives in Afghanistan and elsewhere to save ordinary people who wish for peace in their countries but are persecuted and suffer from tyranny. Amen
