A reflection on the Olympic Games (ethos)

Reflections of the day

Ephesians 4:4-6

There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called ; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 
one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

“Time spent alone with God is not wasted.  It changes us; it changes our surroundings; and every Christian who would live the life that counts, and who would have power for service must take time to pray.”

M.E. Andross


A reflection on the Olympic Games (ethos)

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 sent thou only Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, into thou world to save Mankind from all sins, and to show Mankind thou way to thou.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou Scriptures doth reveal that thou apostle St Paul wrote a number of letters, and we acknowledge that thou apostle St Paul wrote a number of letters to thou churches, and we acknowledge that the letters that thou apostle St Paul wrote are ones that are described as ones that instruct thou churches on the behaviour of thou people of thou churches.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou apostle St Paul was a man that was guided by thou, and we acknowledge that thou apostle St Paul was a man who desired for thou people of thou churches to draw closer to thou. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou apostle St Paul revealed to thou people of thou churches that thou desire was for thou people to be humble, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou apostle St Paul revealed to thou people of thou churches that thou desire was for thou people to be gentle, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou apostle St Paul revealed to thou people of thou churches that thou desire was for thou people to be patient, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou apostle St Paul revealed to thou people of thou churches that thou desire was for thou people to be forgiving, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou apostle St Paul revealed to thou people of thou churches that thou desire was for thou people to have what is described as integrity, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou apostle St Paul revealed to thou people of thou churches that thou desire was for thou people to be ones who serve thou, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou apostle St Paul revealed to thou people of thou churches that thou desire was for thou people to be ones who bear a burden of another, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou apostle St Paul revealed to thou people of thou churches that thou desire was for thou people to love thou, and to love another.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we uphold to thou the works that are good of the Games known as the Olympic Games. We acknowledge the works that are good of the team known as the Great Britain Male Gymnastic Team, and we uphold to thou a work that is good that can be described as humble, and we uphold to thou a work that is good that can be described as one of patience, and we uphold to thou a work that is good that can be described as one of service, and we uphold to thou a work that is good that can be described as one of bearing a burden of another.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we uphold to thou a work that is good of another who volunteered for what is described as a service for the Games known as the Olympic Games, and we acknowledge that the service that thou people have volunteered for is one that enables a running that is smooth of thou Olympic Games. We are able to see in a way that is clear that many have worked what can be described as a time that is long, and that a time given was given in a way that is free, and in a way that is of a heart that is one that can be described as glad.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to thou all who are competitors of thou Olympic Games. We uphold to thou all who are competitors of thou Olympic Games, who are ones who compete in a way that can be described as one that is without a discrimination of another, and we uphold to thou all competitors of thou Olympic Games, who can be described as ones who compete in a way that is one that shows an understanding that is mutual of another, and we uphold to thou all competitors of thou Olympic Games, who compete in a way that is one that shows a friendship to another, and we uphold to thou all competitors of thou Olympic Games, who compete in a way that shows what is known in terms that are common as fair play.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before all competitors of  thou Olympic Games to be able to see in a way that is clear there is a need to be humble always, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before competitors of thou Olympic Games to be able to see in a way that is clear there is a need to be patient, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before all competitors of  thou Olympic Games to be able to see in a way that is clear there is a need to be forgiving, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before all competitors of  thou Olympic Games to be able to see in a way that is clear there is a need to have an integrity, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before all competitors of thou Olympic Games to be able to see in a way that is clear there is a need to demonstrate a service to another, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before all competitors of thou Olympic Games to be able to see in a way that is clear there is a need to bear a burden for another, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before all competitors of thou Olympic Games to be able to see in a way that is clear there is a need to love one another.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide all of Mankind in a life that is daily, and we ask thou to guide Mankind to say sorry for the error of a way, and we ask thou to guide Mankind to make the changes in a life of a self that are necessary, and we ask thou to guide Mankind to draw closer to 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 to thou all that hath been spake in thou name of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who together with thou Holy Spirit, reigns on most high, and is, and was, and always will be, thou most supreme, and thou most absolute power and being, who reigns over all who are of thou world that thou hath created for all of Mankind, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

    It is so refreshing to see the spectators enjoying and cheering each competitor, giving encouragement and pride in their achievements, even though some are not winners. It seems that being able to take part is the “cream on the cake” and competing for their country is their main objective.
