A reflection on recent times in Syria

Reflections for the day

Matthew 5:9

Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they will be called children of God.

Matthew 11:28-30

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

John 14:27

 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid

“Up in a little town in Maine, things were pretty dead some years ago. The churches were not accomplishing anything. There were a few Godly men in the churches, and they said: ‘Here we are, only uneducated laymen; but something must be done in this town. Let us form a praying band. We will all centre our prayers on one man. Who shall it be?’ They picked out one of the hardest men in town, a hopeless drunkard, and centred all their prayers upon him.  In a week, he was converted.  They centred their prayers upon the next hardest man in town, and soon he was converted.  Then they took up another and another, until within a year, two or three hundred were brought to God, and the fire spread out into all the surrounding country.  Definite prayer for those in the prison house of sin is the need of the hour.”

Dr. R.A. Torrey

A reflection on recent times in Syria

Heavenly Father,

We are thankful for thou being with all of Mankind always. We acknowledge that all things are possible through thou if there is a faith and if there is an understanding of thou.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time that we desire to uphold to thou all that has occurred in a time that is recent in thou nation of Syria.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that there has been much said in the media about a situation in thou nation of Syria. We are able to see in a way that is clear that many desire a situation in thou nation of Syria to be one that is resolved, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that a situation in thou nation of Syria that many desire to be resolved, is one of where all violence will cease, and is one of where all conflict will cease.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that many of thou people of thou nation of Syria have lost a loved one, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that many of thou people of thou nation of Syria have lost a home, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that many of thou people of thou nation of Syria have lost a business, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that many of thou people of thou nation of Syria have become what is described as displaced from a place where a self resides.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before many to allow a self to come to terms with a situation that there is in thou nation of Syria, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before many to draw a comfort from those who are dear to a self, and we ask thou provide a number of opportunities before many to draw a strength from those who are dear to a self, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before a self to turn to thou always.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou United Nations Security Council desires a situation in thou nation of Syria to be one that is resolved, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Arab League desires a situation in thou nation of Syria to be one that is resolved. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou United Nations Security Council are unable to come to what is described as a common agreement, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Government of thou nation of Syria are unable to come to what is described as a common agreement, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou people of Syria, known as a rebel group, are unable to come to what is described as a common agreement.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before thou nations of thou United Nations Security Council to reflect upon a need to draw up what can be described as a resolution, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before thou nations of thou United Nations Security Council to be able to see a way forward in a way that is clear that there is a need to draw up a resolution that will be one that will have what is described as a common agreement between all thou nations of thou United Nations Security Council, and will be a common agreement which will mean that all violence will cease, and will be a common agreement which will mean that all conflict will cease.

Heavenly Father, thou sent thou only Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, into thou world to save all of Mankind from all sins, and to show all of Mankind thou way to thou. We hope and we pray that many will reflect upon 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 repent in a way that will incur a change in a life of a self that is necessary.

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, and thou love that thou hath for all of Mankind is one that is all encompassing, and thou love that thou hath for all of Mankind is one that endures, and thou love that thou hath for all of Mankind is one that is eternal. We acknowledge that thou love that thou hath 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 all of Mankind.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide many to see that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, came into thou world to show all of Mankind a peace, and we ask thou to guide many to see that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, came into thou world to show all of Mankind a love that is there for all, and we ask thou to guide many to see that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, came into thou world to show all of Mankind that thou desire is for all of Mankind to live in what is described as harmony with another.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that many will turn to thou, and we hope and we pray that thou people of thou nation of Syria will reflect upon a need to live a life that is described as one that is of peace with another, and we hope and we pray that thou people of thou nation of Syria will reflect upon a need to live a life that is described as one that is of a love for another, and we hope and we pray that thou people of thou nation of Syria will reflect upon a need to live a life that is described as one that is in harmony with another.

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 is thou way, and who is thou truth, and who is thou life, and who is thou way to thou, and we uphold to thou now 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.

    Heavenly Father, we are aware that nations in the Middle East have been acting against regimes that are dictatorial. Some have managed to achieve democracy and at a price, yet, they have achieved much. Peoples in Syria are noting this and fighting for liberation from tyranny so that their children might grow up in peace. We ask for your intervention in these matters so that politicians can make the correct decisions to bring an end to the misery that this conflict is making. Amen
