A reflection on corruption

Reflections for the day

2 Peter 2:19

They promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity—for “people are slaves to whatever has mastered them.”

Galatians 6:8

Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.

Ephesians 6:17-18

 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

Lead Me (Sanctus Real)

So Father, give me the strength
To be everything I’m called to be
Oh, Father, show me the way
To lead them
Won’t You lead me?

A reflection on corruption

Heavenly Father,

Thou art a loving Father, and thou art a compassionate Father, and thou hath made a provision for every need for all Mankind. Thou knowest of the strains and  thou knowest of the stresses there are in a daily life endured by Mankind, and thou knowest of the strains and thou knowest of the stresses that are endured during a service to thou, and during a service for another.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that many beliefs, and that many  thoughts, and that many  ideas, and that many opinions, and that many convictions, and that many prejudices, are ones that are formed by an influence of Mankind. A thought, and an idea, and an opinion, and 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 are ones that can be tainted by ways that can be described as selfish.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou Scriptures reveal thou world that can be described as one that is corrupt, and we acknowledge that thou Scriptures reveal that St Paul was a man who was unable to condone corruption, and we acknowledge that St Paul was a man who lived a life that can be described as holy, and that St Paul was a man who was ready to do thou will always.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou world that we live in, is one that can be described as a world that is tainted by corruption. We are able to see in a way that is clear that corruption is an act that is one that is destructive, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that it is an act that is wrong. We are able to see in a way that is clear that corruption benefits those who can be described as unscrupulous, and that this benefit is one that is to the detriment of another. We are able to see in a way that is clear that corruption is an act that will undermine a good governance, and we are able to see that corruption is an act that will harm what can be described as economic efficiency, and that corruption is an act that will harm what can be described as economic development, and that corruption is an act that will harm our trade with another, and that corruption is an act that is hurtful to another.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we ask thou to guide Mankind in a daily life, and we ask thou to help many reflect upon the error of a way, and we ask thou to guide many to say sorry for a wrong doing, and we ask thou to guide many in making a change in a life that is necessary.

Heavenly Father, thou desire is for Mankind to conduct a self with honesty in all things, and thou desire is for Mankind to have what is described as a self-control in all that is said, and in all that is done, and thou desire is for Mankind to turn to thou always.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that Mankind will reflect carefully upon an action, and we hope and we pray that many will be honest in all that is said, and in all that is done, and we hope and we pray that many will have an  integrity in all that is said, and in all that is done, and we hope and we pray that Mankind will see that a justice is one that brings a stability, and we hope and we pray that many will bring a worry and that many will bring a concern to thou always.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to thouself, Our Heavenly Father, all that is 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 the most supreme ,and is the most absolute power and being, that reigns over all who are of this world that we live in, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

    The media and advertising, through unwarranted phone calls, can be persuasive to some people, particularly the elderly. We ask that thou protect these vulnerable souls from this type of corruption. Doorstep salespersons can also be persuasive in encouraging people to spend money that they can ill afford. Amen
