A reflection on human rights

Reflections for the day

Proverbs 14:31

 Whoever oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honours God.

Proverbs 31:8-9

Open your mouth for the mute,
for the rights of all who are destitute.
Open your mouth, judge righteously,
defend the rights of the poor and needy.

 

 

The LORD is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth.


A reflection on human rights

Heavenly Father,

Thou art the creator of thou world and all that is in it, and thou hath created all things known to Man, and all things unseen by Man. Thou created Man to be born with a particular appearance,thou created Man to be born with a particular shape, thou created Man to be born with a particular colour, and thou created Man to be born with a particular size. Thou created all Man to be equal in thou eyes.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou loves each and every one of us, and we acknowledge that thou love is one that is all encompassing, and we acknowledge that thou love is one that enables us to love thou with all our heart, with all our soul, with all our mind and with all our strength. We acknowledge that there art no words to describe thou love for Man, and we acknowledge that thou love for Man is one that is not bound by words, is one that is not bound by time, and is one that is not bound by energy. We acknowledge that thou love for Man is one that over-spills into our relationships and enables us to love thou neighbour.

Heavenly Father, thou art almighty and thou art most powerful. Thou art an all-knowing Father and thou art an all seeing Father, and thou have possession of all thou facts. We acknowledge that thou purpose for Man is one to draw closer to thou, and we acknowledge that thou purpose for Man is to live our lives like that of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou world was created by thou as a world that was just, as a world that was right, and as a world that was in perfect harmony.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see that in Ancient Times there were many that rebelled against thou, and we are able to see that much of what is described in thou Scriptures concerns justice, and much of what is described in thou Scriptures concerns the treatment of others. We acknowledge that thou Scriptures teach Man about discrimination, and we acknowledge that thou Scriptures teach Man that thou desire is for Man to treat others alike with a due regard to race, and with a due regard to gender, and with a due regard to cultural background, and with a due regard to social standing. We are able to see that thou values and thou sense of justice prevailed through the law and thou  commandments of thou Prophets.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we desire Man to reflect carefully upon what is described as an abuse of human rights. We are able to see that there has been much said in the media about what is described as an abuse of human rights, and there has been much said in the media about those who have been described as suffering at the hands of others. Heavenly Father, it is at this time we uphold to thou in prayer Abdulhadi al-Khawaja, and it is at this time we uphold to thou in prayer Yulia Tymoshenko. We ask that thou can place opportunities before many to address the issues of which we are concerned about, and we hope and we pray that Man will reflect carefully upon the error of a way and say sorry for an error of a way, and make the changes in a life which are necessary.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we uphold to thou the good works of Amnesty International and we ask thou to bless their work, and we ask thou to place opportunities before many to enable justice, to enable fairness, to enable freedom and to enable truth to prevail always.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that Our Lord Jesus Christ died for us in order for us to find the way to thou. We acknowledge that Our Lord Jesus Christ suffered for us in order for us to understand the nature of suffering. We are able to see that for many suffering is something that they would prefer not to endure, and we are able to see that for some of us we can place all our worries and concerns into thou presence, and we are able to see that for all thou is there for Man always.

Heavenly Father, all things are possible through thou if there is a  faith and if there is an understanding of thou. Heavenly Father, we know that many events happen in our lives and that there is a divine purpose for these events to happen, and we know that many of the events that happen do so in thou own good time. Heavenly Father, we ask that we can be guided always in our daily life, we ask that thou can lead us towards thou eternal light.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to accept these words in thou name of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and we ask thou to accept these words in thou name of thou Holy Spirit, who lives within us, who dwells amongst us and who advocates for us, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

    Heavenly Father we place before thou those people who are being kept as hostages, particularly in Somalia, purely to gain monetary rewards. The beheading of the aid worker in Afghanistan by the Taliban is another atrocity and breeches human rights to enable a fulfilling and rewarding life. We pray that their lives will not be in vain and set an example to others. Amen
