A reflection on charitable giving (one of several)

Reflections for the day

2 Corinthians 8:3-5

For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability. Entirely on their own, they urgently pleaded with us for the privilege of sharing in this service to the Lord’s people. And they exceeded our expectations: They gave themselves first of all to the Lord, and then by the will of God also to us.

1 Timothy 6:17-18

Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.

“Our prayer must not be self-centred. It must arise not only because we feel our own need as a burden we must lay upon God, but also because we are so bound up in love for our fellow men that we feel their need as acutely as our own. To make intercession for men is the most powerful and practical way in which we can express our love for them.”

John Calvin

A reflection on charitable giving (one of several)

Heavenly Father,


Thou art Our Heavenly Father who is loving, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who is compassionate, and thou loves each and every one of us. Thou love for all of Mankind is one that is all encompassing, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that endures, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is eternal. Thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by words, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by time, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by energy. We acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that enables all of Mankind to love thou with all of a heart, and to love thou with all of a soul, and to love thou with all of a mind, and to love thou with all of a strength. We acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that over spills into a relationship, and we acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that allows all of Mankind to love thou neighbour in thou way that thou Son, our Lord Jesus Christ loves us all.

 Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that all things are possible through thou if there is a faith and if there is an understanding of thou, and we acknowledge that a number of events that have occurred in a life of a self have happened for a purpose, and we acknowledge that a number of events that are yet to occur will happen for a purpose. We acknowledge that all things happen in thou time that is of thou good time of thou, Our Heavenly Father.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time that we reflect upon the nature of a charitable giving. Many are able to see in a way that is clear that to be charitable means that by an action which can be described as generous, a self is able to help another who can be described as less than fortunate than a self. We are able to see in a way that is clear that to be charitable means that an action may not necessarily be of a nature that is of a giving in a way that is financial, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that an action may be one that is described as helping another.

Heavenly Father, many are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Scriptures teach all of Mankind that there is a need to be charitable to another. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou desire is for all of Mankind to give in a way that is without a reluctance, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou desire is for all of Mankind to give in a way that is without a compulsion. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou desire is for all of Mankind to give in a way that is done without being seen, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou desire is for all of Mankind to give in a way that is done without an acknowledgement by another.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that there are some who are more fortunate than others, and we acknowledge that there are some who are richer than another. Many are able to see in a way that is clear that there are some who are rich in a way that can be described as spiritual, and are rich because thou hath made a provision for a self.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time that we are able to see in a way that is clear that much has been said in the media about a charitable giving, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that much has been said in the media about some who are appointed as a collector of money for a charity.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide all of Mankind in a life that is led daily, and we ask thou to guide a self to reflect carefully upon a giving that is one that is of a nature that is charitable. We ask thou to guide a self to give freely of time, and we ask thou to guide a self to give freely in money, and we ask thou to guide a self to come to terms with those times when a pressure is felt to give of a time, and we ask thou to guide a self to come to terms with those times when a pressure is felt to give of money.

Heavenly Father, we are thankful to all who give generously despite a situation. We hope and we pray that many will continue to give at this time, and at a time in the future.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that a charitable giving is one that should come from a heart, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that by a charitable giving a self is giving to thou. We ask thou to guide a self to give with what can be described as a heart that is glad, and we ask thou to guide a self to give of a time in a way that is free, and to give of money in a way that is not constrained, and we ask thou to guide all of Mankind to love thou neighbour, in thou way that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ loves us all.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to thouself, Our Heavenly Father, all that hath been spake in thou name of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, who together with thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and with thou Holy Spirit, reigns on most high, and is, and was, and will always be, the most supreme, and the most absolute power and being, that governs over all who are of thou world that we live in, now and always, for evermore.

A reflection on global warming

Reflections for the day

Revelation 4:11

 “You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honour and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.

Only those who see the invisible can attempt the impossible.”
Dick Eastman

On persevering prayer:

“I look at a stone cutter hammering away at a rock a hundred times without so much as a crack showing in it.  Yet at the 101st blow it splits in two.  I know it was not the one blow that did it, but all that had gone before.”


A reflection on global warming

Heavenly Father,

Thou art almighty, and thou art most powerful, and thou art the creator of thou world, and thou art creator of all things that are in thou world. Thou hath created all things known to Mankind, and thou hath created all things unseen by Mankind. Thou art Our Heavenly Father who knows all, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who sees all, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who hath possession of all thou facts.

Heavenly Father, thou hath instructed all of Mankind in thou Scriptures to be a keeper of thou world that a self live in, and thou hath instructed all of Mankind to have a dominion over all things that are known to Mankind, and thou hath instructed all of Mankind to subdue thou earth.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou world was given to all of Mankind for a safe keeping, and we acknowledge that there are many who are happy with the way things are, and we acknowledge that there are many who believe that all of Mankind have fallen short in a keeping of thou world in thou way that thou hath created thou world.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect upon the nature of global warming. We are able to see in a way that is clear that at times many are experiencing what can be described as a weather that is adverse in nature, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that a weather that is described as adverse in nature is one that can be attributed to an effect known as global warming. We are able to see in a way that is clear that many acknowledge that global warming has an effect on the environment. We are able to see in a way that is clear that much of what is seen as a factor of global warming is one that is described as a pollute. We are able to see in a way that is clear that a factor of pollution is the use of what is described as a fossil fuel.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we ask thou provides a number of opportunities before the Government of thou nation of thou United Kingdom, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before many to reflect carefully upon a subsidy that there is for a company that produces a fossil fuel. We ask that thou permits a guidance to the Government, and we ask thou to permit a guidance to all of Mankind to see in a way that is clear that the use of a fossil fuel in a manner that is long term, will incur a significant imbalance to all of thou world. We ask thou to permit a guidance to the Government to reflect carefully upon the cost to finance a subsidy for a fossil fuel, and we ask thou to permit a guidance to the Government to reflect carefully upon the cost of protecting an oil field in a way that is described as military.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that all of Mankind will see a way forward in a way that is clear that the use of a fossil fuel as a means to provide all of Mankind with an energy is one that is less than likely to be sustainable, and we hope and we pray that many will see a need to develop what is described as a renewable energy as a means that will enable some of the damage that has occurred to thou world to be reversed.

Heavenly Father, there are many who see that the use of a renewable energy is one that is desirable, and there are some who see the use of a renewable energy to be one that is not sustainable. 

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that many will make the right choice, and we hope and we pray that many will see the error of a way, and we hope and we pray that many will say sorry for the error of a way, and we hope and we pray that many will make the changes that are necessary in a life of a self to show a repentance.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to thouself, Our Heavenly Father, all that hath been spake in thou name of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, and we uphold all that hath been spake in thou name of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for all of Mankind, to save all of Mankind from all sins, and to show all of Mankind thou way to thou, and we uphold all that hath been spake in thou name of thou Holy Spirit, who lives within Man, and who dwells amongst Man, and who advocates for Man, now and always, for evermore.

Amen


A reflection on poverty in thou nation of West Africa

Reflections of the day

1 Samuel 2:8

 He raises up the poor from the dust;
he lifts the needy from the ash heap
to make them sit with princes
and inherit a seat of honour.
For the pillars of the earth are the Lord’s,
and on them he has set the world.

Exodus 22:22-23

“You must not mistreat any widow or fatherless child. If you do mistreat them, they will no doubt cry to Me, and I

will certainly hear their cry.

Philippians 4:6-7 

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in

Christ Jesus.

A reflection on poverty in West Africa

Heavenly Father,

You art the creator of thou world that we all live in, and thou hath created all things known to Mankind, and thou hath created all things unseen by Mankind. Thou art Our Heavenly Father who knows all, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who sees all, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who is in possession of all thou facts. Thou hath created all of Mankind to be equal in thou eyes.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou art intimately concerned with all of our relationships. We are able to see  in a way that is clear that thou concern is for a family and thou concern is for a friend, and thou concern  is of one that doth relate to a structure of a society. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou concern is how a self relates to another, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou concern is one of how a self cares for another. 

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Scriptures teach all of Mankind that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, had a compassion for thou poor, and had a compassion for thou vulnerable ,and that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, revealed thou compassion he had for thou poor, and for thou vulnerable, in a teaching of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, revealed thou compassion that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ hath for thou poor, and for thou vulnerable, by thou example of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou desire is for many who hath plenty to be considerate to another who is less than fortunate than a self, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou desire is for many to avoid an acquisition of wealth by what can be described as an exploitation of thou poor.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time that we acknowledge the many in thou world who are impoverished, and we acknowledge that thou desire is for all of Mankind for a self to give with a heart that is one that is free to another who is in need. We are able to see in a way that is clear that there are many who give of a time in a way that is free, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are many who give of a finance in a way that is free, in order to help thou poor, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are many who give of a finance in a way that is free, in order to help thou vulnerable, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are many who give of a finance in a way that is free, in order to help thou destitute, and we are thankful to thou for all that is done in thou name.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we uphold to thou, thou people of thou nations of West Africa. We are able to see in a way that is clear that there are many in thou nations of West Africa who are unable to survive, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are many in thou nations of West Africa who are unable to survive for a lack of food, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are many in thou nations of West Africa who are unable to survive for a lack of water, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are many in thou nations of West Africa who are unable to survive for a lack of money to afford a medication that is needed to save a life.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we uphold to thou, thou works that are good of Islamic relief, and thou works that are good of UNICEF, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before many to secure what is described as a food sustainability programme in thou communities of thou nations of West Africa.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that many will emulate thou life of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and we hope and we pray that many will uphold thou cause of the many who are impoverished and the many who are mistreated, and we hope and we pray that many will see that by serving another that a self will serve thou.

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 died for all of Mankind to redeem all of Mankind from all sins, and to show all of Mankind thou way to thou, and we uphold all that hath been spake in thou name of thou Holy Spirit, who lives within Man, and who dwells amongst Man, and who advocates for Man, now and always, for evermore.

A reflection on thou world of Our Heavenly Father

Reflections for the day

Revelation 4:11 “You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honour and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.”

The roots of our prayer tree are the scriptures-the Bible. They supply nutrition to the whole tree. Drawing from the roots will increase our effectiveness and power in prayer.

The base trunk is our relationship with the Lord. Everything above it, all the branches, leaves and fruit rest in this relationship. It is out of our relationship with God that every kind of prayer comes forth. It is interesting that Jesus spoke of his relationship with his followers in similar terms. He said, “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5)


A reflection on thou world of Our Heavenly Father

Heavenly Father,

Thou art almighty, and thou art most powerful, and thou art the creator of thou world and all that is in thou world. Thou hath created all things known to Mankind, and thou hath created all things unseen by Mankind. Thou art Our Heavenly Father who knows all, and thou art Our heavenly Father who sees all, and thou art Our heavenly Father who hath possession of all thou facts. Thou hath instructed all of Mankind to be a keeper of thou world that Mankind lives in, and thou hath instructed all of Mankind to hath a dominion over all things that are known to Mankind, and thou hath instructed all of Mankind to subdue thou earth.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we acknowledge thou creation, and it is at this time we acknowledge thou beauty of thou creation, and it is at this time we acknowledge thou splendour of thou creation, and it is at this time we acknowledge thou mightiness of thou creation, and it is at this time we acknowledge thou presence always in thou creation.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou world was given to all of Mankind for a safe keeping, and we acknowledge that there are many who are happy with the way things are, and we acknowledge that there are many who believe all of Mankind have fallen short in a keeping that is fitting of thou world in thou way that thou hath created thou world.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that the future of thou world is bleak unless all of Mankind incurs a change in a way of living. We are able to see in a way that is clear that what is described as a  resource that is natural, is a resource that is one that is, and has been, used in a way that is likely to cause a depletion of a resource, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that many will need to find what can be described as a method that is alternative to provide an energy that is needed by all of Mankind, in order for a lifestyle to remain constant. We are able to see in a way that is clear that there are many in what is described as thou nations of thou Third World who are unable to survive, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are many in thou nations of thou Third World who are unable to survive for a lack of food, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are many in thou nations of thou Third World who are unable to survive for a lack of water, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are many in thou nations of thou Third World who are unable to survive for a lack of money to afford a medication that is needed to save a life.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that much of what has happened in thou world could have been prevented, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that much of what is likely to damage thou world can be prevented. We are able to see in a way that is clear that there is a need for all of thou nations of thou world to take stock in finding a method which is one that can promote a low carbon technology, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there is a need for all of thou nations of thou world to deal with what can be described as an effect of and a change that can be predicted in the climate of thou world.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we desire for all who are at the United Nations Rio plus 20 Earth Summit to reflect carefully upon what is described as “A Way Forward in Sustainable Development.” We ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before all delegates, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before all heads of Government, to be able to see a way forward in a way that is clear a resolution to an issue that relates to one of a development that is sustainable. We hope and we pray that a business will harness what is described as a natural resource, and we hope and we pray that a business will reduce what is described as a carbon emission, and we hope and we pray that all businesses are able to see a way forward in a way that is clear a way to reduce unemployment in thou nations of thou Third World, and we hope and we pray that many businesses are able to see a way forward in a way that is clear a way to  help thou nations of thou Third World to find a method to reduce what is described as poverty, and to find a method to reduce what is described as starvation.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge all things are possible through thou if there is a faith, and if there is a trust, and if there is a belief, placed in thou to guide many to decide how to resolve an issue, and to guide many to see in a way that is clear a contribution that all of Mankind has made to a situation. It is at this time we ask that a self will reflect carefully upon a need to care for thou creation in thou way that thou desires.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that all of Mankind has a freedom of will, and we acknowledge that on an occasion it is hard for a self to make a right choice. We hope and we pray that many will be able to see in a way that is clear the error of a way, and we hope and we pray that a self will say sorry for a wrong doing, and we hope and we pray that a self will make a change in a life that is necessary, and we hope and we pray that a self will 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, who together with thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and thou Holy Spirit, reigns on most high, and is the Governor of all who are of thou world that we live on, and who is the most supreme, and who is the most absolute power and being, that is, that was, and that will always be, always, now and for evermore.

Amen

A reflection on budgeting

Reflections for the day

Proverbs 22

The rich rule over the poor,
and the borrower is slave to the lender.

 

Matthew 6:19-21

 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.  But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.  For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

1 Timothy 6:10

For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

 

2 Corinthians 9:6

Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.

 

At night when you can’t sleep, 
don’t count sheep – talk to the Shepherd.

A reflection on budgeting

Heavenly Father,

Thou art almighty, and thou art most powerful, and we praise thou for thou power, and we praise thou for thou mightiness. Thou art Our Heavenly Father that knows all, and thou art Our Heavenly Father that sees all, and thou art Our Heavenly Father that hath possession of all thou facts. We acknowledge that all things come from thou, and we acknowledge that all riches, and all honour, come from thou.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou purpose for all of Mankind is for all of Mankind to draw closer to thou, and we acknowledge that thou purpose for all of Mankind is to emulate thou life of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and we acknowledge that all good things happen to a self who can live a life that can be described as godly.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect upon the nature of what is described as budgeting. We acknowledge that thou Scriptures reveal much about what is described as budgeting, and we acknowledge that thou Scriptures reveal much about thou desire for all of Mankind to be prudent. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou desire is for all of Mankind to put thou first in all that is thought, and in all that is spake, and in all that is done. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou desire is for all of Mankind to turn to thou always, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou desire is for all of Mankind to place a worry, and to place a concern with thou.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Scriptures reveal much about how a self should be prudent. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Scriptures reveal thou desire is for a self to be prudent by what is described as a saving of money, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Scriptures reveal thou desire is for a self is to be prudent by what is described as an avoidance of a collection of  a debt, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Scriptures reveal thou desire is for a self to be prudent by what is described as a keeping of an account of an expenditure of money, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Scriptures reveal thou desire is for a self to be prudent by what is described as being hard at work.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we acknowledge that there are many who have what is described as a difficulty with finance, and it is at this time we acknowledge that there are many who are unable to see a way forward in a way that is clear in terms of a finance, and it is at this time we acknowledge that a difficulty which is described as one that is financial, is one that is endured by a number of thou people of thou nations of thou world.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide all of Mankind in a life that is daily, and we ask thou to guide a self  to see in a way that is clear an issue  of  concern that is monetary  is an issue that must be addressed. We ask thou to guide a self to see in a way that is clear that thou desire is for all of Mankind not to set a hope on an uncertainty of riches in terms that are monetary.

Heavenly Father, thou art Our Heavenly Father who is loving, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who is compassionate, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is there for all, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is all encompassing, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that endures, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is eternal, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by words, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by time, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by energy. We acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that enables all to love thou with all of a heart, and with all of a soul, and with all of a mind, and with all of a strength. We acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that overspills into a relationship, and we acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that enables all of Mankind to love thou neighbour, in thou way that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, loves us all.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide a self to love thou neighbour, and we ask thou to guide a self to put a need of another before a self, and we ask thou to guide a self to be content with what a self has.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before all delegates at the United Nations Rio 20 plus Summit, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before all the heads of Government at the United Nations Rio 20 plus Summit, and the opportunities we ask thou to provide are ones to enable all to reflect carefully upon what is described as the current economic situation that exists in thou continent known as  Europe, and to reflect carefully upon the current economic situation that exists in what is described as thou nations of the developed World. We hope and we pray that all will see a need to be prudent, and we hope and we pray that all will see a need to put a need of another before a need of a self, and we hope and we pray that a self will turn to thou always.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that where there is a jealousy and where there is an ambition that can be described as selfish doth exist that there will be what can be described as disorder, and what can be described as a practice in a life of a self which is somewhat less than acceptable, and is somewhat less than desirable.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that all of Mankind falls short in thou expectation, and we acknowledge that a self is, at times, reluctant to be thou obedient servant, and we acknowledge that a self is, at times, rebellious, and is unable to see in a way that is clear a need to place thou first in all that is thought, and in all that is spake, and in all that is done. We ask thou to guide a self  to remain focused on thou always, and we ask thou to guide a self to be obedient to thou, and we ask thou to guide a self to be ready to do thou will.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to thouself, Our Heavenly Father, all that hath been spake in thou name of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, and we uphold all that hath been spake in thou name of  thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for all of Mankind to redeem all of Mankind from all sins, and to show all of Mankind thou way to thou, and we uphold all that hath been spake in thou name of thou Holy Spirit, who lives within Man, and who dwells amongst Man, and who advocates for Man, now and always, for evermore.

Amen


Thou love of Our Heavenly Father

Reflections for the day

1 John 4:16

 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.

God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.

Luke 12:6-7

Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

Why is it so important that you are with God and God alone on the mountain top? It’s important because it’s the place in which you can listen to the voice of the One who calls you the beloved. To pray is to listen to the One who calls you “my beloved daughter,” “my beloved son,” “my beloved child.” To pray is to let that voice speak to the centre of your being, to your guts, and let that voice resound in your whole being. –Henri Nouwen


A reflection on thou Love of Our Heavenly Father

Heavenly Father,

Thou art Our Heavenly Father who is loving, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who is compassionate, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who can heal all of Mankind.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that many are able to express a love for thou, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that the love that is expressed for thou is one that is all encompassing. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou love that thou hath for all of Mankind is one that endures, and we are able to see in a way that is clear  that thou love that thou hath for all of Mankind is one that is eternal. Many  are able to see in a way that is clear that thou love that thou hath for all of Mankind is one that is there for all, and many are able to see in a way that is clear that thou love that thou hath for all of Mankind is one that is desirous for all of Mankind to perceive, and is one that is desirous for all of Mankind to discern.

Heavenly Father, thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by words, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by time, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by energy. We acknowledge that thou revealed thou love for all of Mankind by sending into thou world thou only begotten Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. We acknowledge that thou purpose of sending into thou world thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is to show all of Mankind that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is thou way to thou, and is thou truth that is of thou, Our Heavenly Father, and is thou life of thou, Our Heavenly Father, that is thou life that is eternal with thou.

Heavenly Father, thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, died a death where thou love for all of Mankind is one that triumphs all that is evil. We acknowledge that the blood shed by thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, upon the cross, was blood that was shed for all of Mankind, and that through the physical death of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and through the resurrection of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, all of Mankind can be forgiven for all sins.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that through the forgiveness of all sins, and through a repentance that a self is able to proffer, that a self is able to turn to thou with a heart that is cleansed, and that a self is able to turn to thou with a mind that is cleansed, and that a self is able to turn to thou with a soul that is cleansed.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that many are able to experience thou love that thou hath for a self, and we are able to see in a way that is clear  that for a self that an experience such as this is one that can be described as uplifting, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that for a self an experience such as this is one that can be described as one of a peace that is inner, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that for a self an experience such as this is one that can be described as a state of contentment.

Heavenly Father, we uplift to thou the many that have yet to experience thou love that is there for all of Mankind. We hope and we pray that many will turn to thou, and we hope and we pray that many will place a worry,and many will place a concern with thou. We ask thou to guide all of Mankind in a life that is daily, and we ask thou to guide all of Mankind to see the error of a way, and we ask thou to guide a self to say sorry for a wrong doing, and we ask thou to guide a self to make a change in a life that is necessary in order to show a repentance.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that an earthly life is but a journey, and that the journey is one that is the beginning of a life with thou. We acknowledge that thou path toward thou light that is eternal is one that is straight and is one that is narrow, and we acknowledge that the journey toward thou light that is eternal, is one where many are likely to encounter a difficulty.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect upon the many that endure what can be described as a difficulty with a mental health. We are able to see in a way that is clear that the media has much to say about the difficulty there is with a mental health. We hope and we pray that many will be able to see a way forward in a way that is clear that a self who has a difficulty with a mental health can live a life that is normal, and that a self who has a difficulty with a mental health can make a contribution that is positive to the life of another.

Heavenly Father, thou hath created all of Mankind to be born with a particular appearance, and thou hath created all of Mankind to be born with a particular shape, and thou hath created all of Mankind to be born with a particular colour, and thou hath created all of Mankind to be born with a particular size. Thou hath created all of Mankind to be equal in thou eyes.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before the many that have a difficulty with a mental health, in order that a self can draw closer to thou, and we hope and we pray that a self will experience what is described as a peace that is inner, and we hope and we pray that a self will experience what is described as a contentment that is inner, and we hope and we pray that a self will experience thou love that thou hath for all of Mankind always.

Heavenly Father, we are thankful that thou art Our Heavenly Father who is loving, and we are thankful that thou art Our Heavenly Father who is forgiving.

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 died for all of Mankind, to redeem all of Mankind from all sins, and we uphold all that hath been spake in thou name of thou Holy Spirit, who lives within Man, and who dwells amongst Man, and who advocates for Man, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

A reflection on bullying

Reflections for the day

Psalm 121:2

My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.

Matthew 5:11-12 & 38-48

11 “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’ But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you. “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbour
 and hate your enemy.’  But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

There is nothing that makes us love a man so much as praying for him. –William Law

A reflection on bullying

Heavenly Father,

Thou art Our Heavenly Father who is loving, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who is compassionate, and thou loves each and every one of us. Thou love for all of Mankind is one that is all encompassing, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by words, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by time, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by energy. We acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that enables all of Mankind to love thou with all of a heart, and with all of a soul, and with all of a mind, and with all of a strength. We acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that enables thou love for all of Mankind to spill over into a relationship, and we acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that enables all of Mankind to love thou neighbour in thou way that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ loves us all.

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

Heavenly Father, thou art almighty, and thou art most powerful. Thou art Our Heavenly Father that knows all, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who sees all, and thou hath possession of all thou facts. We acknowledge that thou purpose for all of Mankind is of one to draw closer to thou, and we acknowledge that thou purpose for all of Mankind is one to emulate thou life of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and we acknowledge that all good things happen to a self who can live a life that can be described as godly.

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

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

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect carefully upon the nature of bullying. We are able to see in a way that is clear that what is described as bullying is one that occurs on an occasion in the work place, and that what is described as bullying is one that occurs on an occasion at home, and that what is described as bullying is one that occurs on an occasion at school. We are able to see in a way that is clear that there are some who have suffered from an act of bullying, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are some who have suffered from an act of bullying that can be described as unkind, and that there are some who have suffered from an act of bullying that can be described as hurtful, and that there are some who have suffered from an act of bullying that can be described as one where pain has been endured in a way that is physical. We acknowledge that an act of bullying is one that can be committed by a word, and we acknowledge that an act of bullying is one that can be committed by a deed, and we acknowledge that an act of bullying is one that is committed on a basis that is face to face, and we acknowledge that an act of bullying is one that is committed on a basis that is described as one that relates to a use of the internet.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that during the ministry of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was subjected to words that were unkind, and that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was subjected to words that were hurtful, and that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was subjected to acts that caused thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, to suffer with a pain that was physical. We acknowledge that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, taught all of Mankind to love thou neighbour in thou way that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, loves us all, and we acknowledge that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, taught all of Mankind to show a mercy to some who can be described as an enemy, and that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, taught all of Mankind to forgive another.

Heavenly Father, thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, died for all of Mankind in order to redeem all of Mankind from all sins, and to show all of Mankind thou way to thou. We acknowledge that in order to draw closer to thou a self must be pure in a heart, and we acknowledge that in order to draw closer to thou a self must be pure in a mind, and we acknowledge that in order to draw closer to thou a self must be pure in a deed, and we acknowledge that in order to draw closer to thou a self must forgive another, in order for a self to be forgiven by thou.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide all of Mankind in a life that is daily, and we ask thou to give a self a confidence to endure when a resource is low, and we ask thou to guide a self to see in a way that is clear when a self ought to remain silent, and we ask thou to guide a self to see in a way that is clear when a self should act, and we ask thou to guide all of Mankind to turn to thou always, and we ask thou to guide all of Mankind to place a worry, and to place a concern, with thou.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect carefully upon what is described as cyber bullying. We are able to see in a way that is clear that there are many who use what is describes as a social network site in a way that is fitting, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are some who use a social network site in a way that is hurtful, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are some who use a social network site in a way that is unkind. We ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before the Government of thou nation of thou United Kingdom, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before a provider of a social network site to address all concerns that relate to bullying, and we hope and we pray that all concerns that relate to bullying will be resolved, and we hope and we pray that many will see the error of a way, and we hope and we pray that a self will say sorry for the error of a way, and we hope and we pray that a self will make the changes in a life that is necessary in order to show a repentance. We hope and we pray that many will 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, who together with thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and thou Holy Spirit, reigns on most high, and is, and was, and will always be the most supreme, and the most absolute power and being, that governs all of thou world that we live in, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.


A reflection on thou peace (one of several)

Reflections for the day

Matthew 5:43-44

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbour
and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.

 

The prayer that yields the richest rewards of grace is the prayer we pray for our enemies.

A reflection on thou peace (one of several)

Heavenly Father,

Thou art Our Heavenly Father who is loving, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who is compassionate, and thou loves each and every one of us. Thou love for all of Mankind is one that is all encompassing, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by words, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by time, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by energy. We acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that enables all of Mankind to love thou with all of a heart, and with all of a soul, and with all of a mind, and with all of a strength. We acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that enables thou love for all of Mankind to spill over into a relationship, and we acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that enables all of Mankind to love thou neighbour, in thou way that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ loves us all.

Heavenly Father, thou art the creator of thou world and all that is in thou world, and thou hath created all things known to all of Mankind, and thou hath created all things unseen by Mankind. Thou hath created all of Mankind to be equal in thou eyes.

Heavenly Father, thou art almighty, and thou art most powerful, and thou art our redeemer, and we praise thou for thou power and for thou mightiness. Thou art Our Heavenly Father that knows all, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who sees all, and thou hath possession of all thou facts. We acknowledge that thou purpose for all of Mankind is of one to draw closer to thou, and we acknowledge that thou purpose for all of Mankind is of one to live a life that emulates thou life of of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect upon thou nature of peace, and it is at this time we reflect upon thou nature of peace in thou world. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Scriptures teach all of Mankind much about living in peace. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, made peace for all of Mankind by the blood of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, when a physical death of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, occurred upon the cross. We acknowledge that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, died for each and every one of Mankind, and we acknowledge that the death of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is to show all of Mankind thou way to thou.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou loves all of Mankind. We acknowledge that thou desire is for all of Mankind to live in peace with another, and we acknowledge that thou desire is for all of Mankind to live a life that can be described as one of harmony with another.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that to be a peacemaker there is a need to choose a word carefully always, and at times there is a need to remain silent. We are able to see in a way that is clear that for many this is a difficult task, as for many often the wrong thing is spoke.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we uphold to thou all nations of thou world where a conflict has arisen, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before all governments of all nations where there is a conflict to resolve a conflict that has arisen, and we uphold to thou in prayer thou nation of Afghanistan, and thou nation of Syria, and thou nation of Libya, and thou nation of Burma, and thou nation of Nigeria, and thou nation of Iraq.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that to love an enemy means there is a need to put aside an anger, and we acknowledge  that to love an enemy there is a need to pray for another who has caused an offence.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that there is a difficulty for many who live a life in an inner city, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that a difficulty is one that can relate to what is described as a gang warfare, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that a difficulty is one that can be described as one where some are unable to live in a way that thou desires. We acknowledge that for some there is a desire for a power, and we acknowledge that for some there is a desire for what is described as having a self-image, and we acknowledge that for some there is a desire for money.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before some to be able to see in a way that is clear that a relationship with thou is one that is preferable, and that a relationship with thou is one that will provide all of Mankind with a need that will and does address a feeling of separation from love.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide all of Mankind in a life that is daily, and we ask thou to guide a self  to turn to thou always.

Heavenly Father, we are thankful that thou art  Our Heavenly Father who is loving, and we are thankful thou art Our Heavenly Father who is forgiving.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to thouself, Our Heavenly Father, all that hath been spake in thou name of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, and we uphold all that hath been spake  in thou name of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who together with thou Holy Spirit, is thou advocate for all who dwell in thou world, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

A reflection on an exemplary life (of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ)

Reflections for the day

John

8:31-32
“So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”

Ephesians

5:1-2 
“Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.”

1 Corinthians 11:1

Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.

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 an exemplary life

(of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ)

Heavenly Father,

Thou art Our Heavenly Father who is loving, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who is compassionate, and thou loves each and every one of us. Thou love for all of Mankind is one that is all encompassing, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by words, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by time, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by energy. We acknowledge thou love for all of Mankind is one that enables all of Mankind to love thou with all of a heart, and to love thou with all of a soul, and to love thou with all of a mind, and to love thou with all of a strength. We acknowledge thou love for all of Mankind is one that over spills into a relationship, and we acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that enables all of Mankind to love thou neighbour, in a way that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ loves us all.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge thou as one Father, and we acknowledge thou as eternally existent in three persons, as Our Heavenly Father, as thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and as thou Holy Spirit. We acknowledge that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is thou manifest in the flesh, and we acknowledge thou intention for thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was, and is, to come into thou world to redeem all of Mankind from all sins, and for all of Mankind to be shown thou way to thou. We acknowledge that thou, and thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is thou source of all wisdom and counsel, and we acknowledge that thou, and thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, stands supreme above all. We acknowledge that thou Holy Spirit enables many to live a life that can be described as one that thou desires, and we acknowledge that thou Holy Spirit enables many to witness thou word of thou, Our Heavenly Father, and we acknowledge that thou Holy Spirit enables many to work in thou name of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.


Heavenly Father, thou art the creator of thou world that we live in, and thou hath created all things known to all of Mankind, and thou hath created all things unseen by all of Mankind. Thou art almighty, and thou art most powerful, and we praise thou and we exalt thou for thou power and thou mightiness. We acknowledge that thou power, and we acknowledge that thou mightiness, are ones that enabled thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, to carry out thou ministry, and we acknowledge that thou power, and thou mightiness, are ones that enabled thou disciples to carry out thou ministry, and we acknowledge that thou power, and thou mightiness, is one that is seen in thou Holy Spirit.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time that we reflect upon thou example given by thou life of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. We acknowledge that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, revealed that thou ministry meant that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, would endure a trial, and that thou ministry meant an endurance of a tribulation, and that thou ministry meant an endurance of a rejection, and that thou ministry meant an endurance of a crucifixion, in order to fulfil thou plan of redemption for all of Mankind, so that all of Mankind are shown thou way to thouself, Our Heavenly Father.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear, that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, came not to be served but to serve all of Mankind, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, came not to take from another but to give to all of Mankind, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is humble, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is merciful, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is obedient to thou always.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide all of Mankind in a life that is lived daily, and we ask thou to guide a self to follow thou perfect example of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. At a time in the future many will desire to be thou obedient servant, and at a time in the future many will desire to lay down a life for thou, and at a time in the future many will desire to be ready to do thou will.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that many will desire to be renewed in a way that can be described as spiritual, and we acknowledge that in order for many to be renewed in a way that is spiritual, that many will need to draw closer to thou.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see that thou Scriptures teach all of Mankind that thou made provision for all of Mankind, and that thou Scriptures reveal that thou disciple, Saint Paul, was a man who lived a life that can be likened to the life of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and that the example of the life of Saint Paul is revealed in a letter that was written by Saint Paul. We are able to see in a way that is clear that Saint Paul knew of a limitation that was of Saint Paul, and that Saint Paul did not suffer from what is described as an ego that is inflated. We are able to see in a way that is clear that Saint Paul appraised all in a way that can be described as generous, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that Saint Paul asked for a respect for the right of another, that is one that can be described as one that was sensitive, and that was one that can be described as one that was punctilious. We are able to see in a way that is clear that Saint Paul was a man of faith, whose faith can be described as one of a strong conviction, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that Saint Paul was able to concede an equal liberty to the conviction of another.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that many are able to follow the example of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in much the same way as Saint Paul did. We hope and we pray that the lives of many reflect thou glory and thou love for all. We ask that thou can strengthen many, and we ask that thou can renew many, and we ask that thou can speak and work through many, and we ask thou for a guidance and an opportunity to show another thou way to thou always.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we uphold to thou the works that are good of a probation officer, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that the works that are good of a probation officer are ones that enable a self who is described as a former prisoner to be supported in a way to make a change that is  needed to enable a life to be lived that is one in an alignment with a society. We ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before the Government, and before a probation officer, to reflect carefully upon a need of a prisoner who has served a term of imprisonment that is one that is less than a year, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before a farm that is one that provides a place for a former prisoner to enable a self to continue to make a change that is desired to be made in order for a life to be led that is one that is in an alignment with a society.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide all of Mankind in a life that is lead daily, and we ask thou to guide a self to say sorry for the error of a way, and we ask thou to guide all of Mankind to make the changes in a life that are necessary to enable a self to tread thou path that is one which is straight, and to tread thou path that is one which is narrow, toward thou light that is eternal.

Heavenly Father, we place a self into thou hands of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, knowing that a self is here to glorify thou, and knowing that a self is here to serve thou, and knowing that it is not what a self can gain but what a self can give to thou, and knowing that all that is done must be done for thou, and knowing that all that is done for another must be said and must be done in thou name of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, and in thou name of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and knowing that all that is done for another must be said and must be done in thou name of thou Holy Spirit, who lives within Man, and who dwells amongst Man, and who advocates for Man, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

A reflection of a life that is filled with thou Holy Spirit

Reflections for the day

John 14:16-17

And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.

Ephesians 5:18

 Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit.

If the spiritual life be healthy, under the full power of the Holy Spirit, praying without ceasing will be natural.”

A reflection of a life that is filled with thou Holy Spirit

Heavenly Father,

Thou art Our Heavenly Father who is loving, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who is compassionate, and thou loves each and every one of us.Thou love for all of Mankind is one that is all encompassing, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by words, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by time, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by energy. We acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind enables all of Mankind to love thou with all of a heart, and to love thou with all of a soul, and to love thou with all of a mind, and to love thou with all of a strength. We acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that overspills into a relationship, and we acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that enables all of Mankind to love thou neighbour, in thou way that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ loves us all.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge thou as one Father, and we acknowledge thou as eternally existent in three persons, as thou Heavenly Father, and as thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and as thou Holy Spirit. We acknowledge that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is thou manifest in the flesh, and we acknowledge thou intention was for thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, to come into thou world to redeem all of Mankind from all sins, and to show all of Mankind thou way to thou. 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 thou, and thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, stands supreme above all. We acknowledge that thou Holy Spirit enables many to live a life that can be described as one that thou desires, and we acknowledge that thou Holy Spirit enables many to witness thou word of thou, Our Heavenly Father, and we acknowledge that thou Holy Spirit enables many to work in thou name of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Thou art almighty, and thou art most powerful, and we praise thou, and we exalt thou for thou power, and for thou mightiness. We acknowledge that thou power, and thou mightiness are ones that enabled thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, to carry out thou ministry, and we acknowledge that thou power, and thou mightiness, are ones that enabled thou disciples to carry out thou ministry, and we acknowledge that thou power, and thou mightiness, is one that is seen through thou Holy Spirit.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect upon thou nature of thou Holy Spirit, and it is at this time we reflect upon a life that is one that is filled by thou Holy Spirit. We are able to see in a way that is clear that in order for a life to be one that is filled by thou Holy Spirit that there is a need to invite thou Holy Spirit to be at one with a self, and by inviting thou Holy Spirit to be at one with a self, there is a need to allow thou Holy Spirit to be one that fills a self, and by inviting thou Holy Spirit to be at one with a self there is a need to allow thou Holy Spirit to guide a self in all that is thought, and in all that is spake, and in all that is done.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou Holy Spirit is one that will enlighten many, and we acknowledge that thou Holy Spirit is one that will purify the soul of a self, and we acknowledge that thou Holy Spirit is one that will help a self to draw closer to thou.

Heavenly Father, we are thankful that thou Holy Spirit is able to teach all of Mankind, and we are thankful that thou Holy Spirit is able to comfort a self, and we are thankful that thou Holy Spirit is able to guide a self, and we are thankful that thou Holy Spirit is able to empower a self.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we hope and we pray that all of Mankind will reflect carefully upon thou power of thou Holy Spirit, and we hope and we pray that a self will turn to thou, and we hope and we pray that a self will proclaim thou word that is of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, and we hope and we pray that thou glory will be seen in thou works that are done in thou name of thou.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to thouself, Our Heavenly Father, all that hath been spake in thou name of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, and we uphold all that hath been spake in thou name of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who died on a cross for all of Mankind, in order to redeem all of Mankind from all sins, and to show all of Mankind thou way to thou, and we uphold all that hath been spake in thou name of thou Holy Spirit, who lives within Man, and who dwells amongst Man, and who advocates for Man, now and always, for evermore.

Amen
