A reflection on the demise of all children of thou nation of Syria

A reflection on the demise of thou children of thou nation of Syria

Heavenly Father,

Thou presence in thy life is one that I acknowledge, and thou presence in thy life is one that I am grateful for, and thou presence in thy life is one that I desire always, and thou presence in thy life is one that doth enable thyself to be at one with thou.

Heavenly Father, there are times when thou presence is one that is felt by many, and there are times when thou presence is one that is desired by many, and there are times when thou presence is one that is acknowledged by many, and there are times when thou presence is one that is, at times, questioned by many.

Heavenly Father, there will be a time in the future when thou presence will be one that will be acknowledged by many, and there will be a time in the future when thou presence will be one that will be accepted by many, and there will be a time in the future when many will turn to thou.

Heavenly Father, many of thou people are unable to see a way forward in a way that is clear, a need to be at one with thou, and many of thou people are unable to see a way forward in a way that is clear, a need to be at one with another, and many of thou people are unable to see a way forward in a way that is clear, a need to be what is described as at peace with another.

Heavenly Father, many of thou people who are unable to see a way forward in a way that is clear a need to be at one with another are thou people who find a self in a situation that can be described as less than desirable. A situation that can, and is described as less than desirable, is for many of thou people one of war. The many who find a self in a situation that is one that is of war are thou people who are, at times, unable to see a way forward in a way that is clear a need to be at one with thou.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that there are times when many believe that a war is necessary, and we acknowledge that there are times when many believe a war is unwarranted, and we acknowledge that there are times when some believe a war is futile.

Heavenly Father, there will be a time in the future when there will be a Day of Judgement, and there will be a time in the future when many will need to say sorry for the error of a way, and there will be a time in the future when many will need to make the changes necessary in a life, in order to be able to be at one with thou.

Heavenly Father, much of what is reported in the media is of news that doth sadden thyself, and much of what is reported in the media is of news that doth relate to the demise of thou nation of Syria, and much of what is reported in the media is of news that doth relate to the plight of thou people of thou nation of Syria.

Heavenly Father, the plight of thou people of thou nation of Syria is one that doth sadden thyself, and the plight of thou people of thou nation of Syria is one that doth sadden another. There are a number of reports in the media that doth relate to some of thou children of thou people of thou nation of Syria, and the reports in the media that doth relate to some of thou children of thou people of thou nation of Syria do indicate that all  of thou children of thou people of thou nation of Syria doth need to be ones who are uplifted to thou.

Heavenly Father, there will be a time in the future when the war in thou nation of Syria will be one that will be no longer, and there will be a time in the future when thou people of thou nation of Syria will return to their homes. Many of thou people of thou nation of Syria will have a difficulty in seeing a way forward  in a way that is clear, and many of thou people of thou nation of Syria will have a difficulty in being at one with another. There will be a time in the future when thouself, Our Heavenly Father, will be seen as OurCompassionate Heavenly Father, and there will be a time in the future when thouself, Our Heavenly Father,will be seen as OurCaring HeavenlyFather, and this time in the future will be one when thou people of thou nation of Syria will be at one with thou, and will be at one with another.

Heavenly Father, thou children of thou people of thou nation of Syria are thou children who are at this time somewhat saddened, and thou children of thou people of thou nation of Syria are thou children who are at this time bereft of those who are near, and of those who are dear to a self, and thou children of thou people of thou nation of Syria are thou children who are at this time unable to come to terms with a recent event, and thou children of thou people of thou nation of Syria are thou children who are at this time unable to be what is described as reunited with a loved one.

Heavenly Father, thyself doth desire to uphold to thouself, thou children of thou people of thou nation of Syria, and thyself doth desire for thou to bless all thou children of thou people of thou nation of Syria, and thyself doth desire for thou to provide a number of opportunities before many who are given the task of caring for thou children of thou people of thou nation of Syria, to care for thou children of thou people of thou nation of Syria in a way that is fitting.

Heavenly Father, I uphold all that thyself hath spake in thou name of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, and in thou name of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and 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 the demise of the Eurozone

Reflections for the day

Romans 5: 1-5

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.  And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.

God shapes the world by prayer. The prayers of God’s saints are the capital stock of heaven by which God carries on His great work upon the earth.

[E.M. Bounds]

A reflection on the demise of the Eurozone

Heavenly Father,

We art thankful that thou art present always, and we art thankful that thou doth love all of Mankind, and we art thankful that thou doth care for all of Mankind, and we art thankful that thou art here for all of Mankind to turn to in prayer.

Heavenly Father, we desire that thou nation known as thou United Kingdom, and we desire that thou nation known as Spain, and we desire that thou nation known as Italy, and we desire that thou nation known as Portugal, and we desire that thou nation known as Germany, and we desire that thou nation known as France, and we desire that thou nation known as Greece are able to see in a way that is clear that thou nations need to be at one with another.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that there is much said in the media about the demise of the Eurozone, and we acknowledge there is much said in the media about what is described as a measure of austerity. We are able to see in a way that is clear that many desire a future which is one that is not constrained by what is described as a measure of austerity, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that many desire a future where there is no longer an issue that relates to an economy, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that many desire a future where there is no longer a fear of what is described as a loss of a job.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that there are times when many  desire that a job is one that is secure, and we acknowledge that there are times when many desire that what is described as an expenditure is one that does not exceed an income. We are able to see in a way that is clear that what is described as the demise of the Eurozone is one that doth cause a feeling of despair amongst thou people, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that many of thou people are unable to see a way forward in a way that is clear.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before many to enable many to see a way forward in a way that is clear, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before many to enable many to have a will to endure what is necessary, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before all  of thou nations who are deemed to be ones who are part of the Eurozone, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before thou nation known as thou United Kingdom, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before thou nation known as thou United States of America, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before thou nation known as China, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before thou nation known as Japan, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before thou nations known as thou Southern Americas, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before thou nation known as Russia, that will allow all of thou nations to perceive, and to allow all of thou nations to discern, all that is desirous of Our Heavenly Father in terms of being of one accord with another, and in terms of allowing all of thou nations to be able to govern a nation in a way that can be described as fitting for a nation that is of thou.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are many nations that have been affected by the demise of the Eurozone, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are many nations who feel the need to implement what is described as a measure of austerity, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are many who feel that what is described as a measure of austerity is one that is somewhat harsh, and is one that many are unable to come to terms with.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou nations must come to terms with a future where spending is one that will need to be curbed, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that many must come to terms with a future where many will have to forego what another would describe as a luxury of life, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that many will need to come to terms with a future where a loss of a job will be incurred, or where a loss of a home will be incurred.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that there are times when many have a feeling which can be described as a feeling of angst, and we acknowledge that there are times when many have a feeling which can be described as a feeling of ill will toward another, and we acknowledge that there are times when many have a feeling which can be described as a feeling of hate toward another, and we acknowledge that there are times when many have a feeling which can be described as a feeling of anxiety about what a future will hold.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that many will turn toward thou, and we hope and we pray that many will place a worry, and will place a concern with thou, and we hope and we pray that many will draw closer to thou, and we hope and we pray that many will be able to make the changes in a life of a self that is necessary.

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 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 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 the Olympic Games

Reflections of the day

1 Corinthians 9:25-27

Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.

There is no other activity in life so important as that of prayer. Every other activity depends upon prayer for its best efficiency.”

M.E. Andross


A reflection on the Olympic Games

Heavenly Father,

We are thankful  for thou being with all of Mankind always. We acknowledge thou as the creator of thou world that we live in, and we acknowledge thou as the creator of all things known to Mankind, and we acknowledge thou as the creator of all things unseen by Mankind. We acknowledge that thou created all of Mankind to be equal in thou eyes.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we desire to uphold to thou the Games which are known as the Olympic Games. We desire to uphold to thou the works that are good of the committee of the Olympic Games, and we desire to uphold to thou the works that are good of many who are described as the trainers of athletes who compete in the Olympic Games, and we desire to uphold to thou the works that are good of thou athletes of the Olympic Games, and we desire to uphold to thou the works that are good of thou athletes of the Games known as the Paralympic Games, and we desire to uphold to thou the works that are good of all those who have volunteered to support the Olympic Games, and the Paralympic Games.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to bless the Olympic Games, and the Paralympic Games, and it is at this time we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before many to reflect upon a need to be what is described as sportsman-like, in all that is thought, and in all that is spake, and in all that is done.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that many who are described as athletes are ones who have an ability to persevere, and that this ability to persevere is one that is seen in the way thou athletes train, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that many of those who are described as athletes are ones who have a control, which is known by many as a self-control, and that this self-control is one which is seen in all that is done. We are able to see in a way that is clear that many of those who are described as athletes are ones who have an ability to endure, and this ability to endure is one that enables thou athletes to be ones who are able to be successful in what is done.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou desire is for all of Mankind to be at one with thou, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that in order for all of Mankind to be at one with thou, all of Mankind will need to have what is described as an ability to persevere, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that in order for all of Mankind to be at one with thou that all of Mankind will need to have what is described as an ability to have a self-control, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that in order for all of Mankind to be at one with thou, that all of Mankind will need to have what is described as an ability to endure. We are able to see in a way that is clear that in order for all of Mankind to be at one with thou, that all of Mankind will need to remain upon thou path, which is a path that is straight, and which is a path that is narrow, and which is a path that will lead toward thou light which is eternal, and in order for all of Mankind to remain upon thou path, all of Mankind will need to put aside what is worldly, and in order to put aside what is worldly, all of Mankind will need to have what is described as an ability to persevere, and in order to put aside what is worldly, all of Mankind will need to have what is described as an ability to have a self-control, and in order to put aside what is described as worldly, all of Mankind will need to have what is described as an ability to endure.

Heavenly Father, many are able to see in a way that is clear that a life with thou is one that is eternal, and many are able to see in a way that is clear that a life with thou, that is one that is eternal, means a self will need to be focused on thou always.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide all of Mankind in a life that is daily, and we ask thou to guide all of Mankind to 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, 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 who together with thou Holy Spirit, reigns on most high, and is, and was, and will always be, thou most supreme, and thou most absolute power and being, that governs all who art of thou world that we live in, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.


A reflection on forgiveness and reconciliation

Reflections for the day

1 John 2
My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.

1 John 1:9-11
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.  If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.

Acts 3:19

 “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.”


We must alter our lives in order to alter our hearts, for it is impossible to live one way and pray another. –William Law

A reflection on forgiveness and reconciliation

Heavenly Father,

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. We acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that is all encompassing, and we acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by words, and we acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by time and and we acknowledge that 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 enables thou love for all of Mankind to overspill 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, it is at this time we acknowledge that many find a difficulty to forgive another who has wronged a self. We are able to see in a way that is clear that for some it is difficult to let go of an anger, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that for some it is hard to forgive another when there is anger. We are able to see in a way that is clear that some desire to see a justice prevail, and that some see that to forgive a situation where a justice is meted may be seen by another as condoning an act. We are able to see in a way that is clear that some prefer a self who has offended, and a self who has caused an upset to not be forgiven. We are able to see in a way that is clear that some desire an outcome that can be described as an “eye for an eye” and a “tooth for a tooth.” We are able to see in a way that is clear that some find it difficult to forgive another who has offended, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there is an occasion where some are unable to come to terms with a forgiveness for another, if another has declined to proffer a sorrow for a word that has been spoke, or a deed that has been done.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that during thou ministry of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, that it was revealed that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, came into thou world to redeem all of Mankind from all sins, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that as a consequence a self is able to turn to thou, and a self is able to ask thou for a forgiveness for an error of a way. Thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, revealed to all upon the cross that a love will triumph over an evil by thou a word of forgiveness that was uttered from the cross for all who had condemned thou Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, and by a response of a promise in paradise to a thief who repented from the cross, who died alongside thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect upon an occasion in the Second World War when there was much destruction, and we reflect upon an occasion in the Second World War when there was a destruction of thou church of St Michaels of Coventry. We acknowledge there was a time of suffering, and we acknowledge that there was a time when many were killed. We acknowledge that at this time a man named Provost Howard inscribed upon a remnant of the altar of thou church of St Michaels, “Father, forgive.” We acknowledge that at a time that was later that thou Cathedral of Coventry was one that was constructed, and we acknowledge that thou Cathedral of Coventry was one that was constructed on the ruin of thou church of St Michaels.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we acknowledge the anniversary of 50 years of the consecration of thou Cathedral of Coventry. We acknowledge that a mission at a time of 50 years ago was one of reconciliation, and we acknowledge that a mission at a time of 50 years ago was of one to reconcile thou nation of The British Isles with thou nation of Germany.

Heavenly Father, we ask for thou blessing on the works that are good of thou Cathedral of Coventry, and we ask for thou blessing on its rededication as a memorial to a victim of war who is described as a civilian.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that the works that are good of thou Cathedral of Coventry are ones that have been adopted by thou churches and by another, and we acknowledge that the works that are good of thou Cathedral of Coventry are ones that have been adopted toward a working of peace in thou world.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide all of Mankind in a life that is one that is led daily, and we ask thou to guide a self to perceive and to discern that thou desire is for all of Mankind to love thou neighbour, in thou way that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, loves us all. We ask thou to guide a self to understand that a self  who has offended a self, and a self who has caused an upset has a capacity for good. We hope and we pray that all of Mankind is able to reflect carefully upon the nature of forgiveness and we hope and we pray that all of Mankind is able to see a way forward in a way that is clear that by forgiving, a self is able to free a self from a feeling of anger, and that a self is are able to free a self from a feeling of bitterness, and that by forgiving, a self is able to provide an opportunity for a self to transform a life of a self, and that by thou power of forgiveness that a self is are able to draw nearer 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 all that hath been spake in thou name of thou Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, and we uphold all that hath been spake in thou name of thou Holy Spirit, who together with thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is thou Redeemer and thou Saviour for all of Mankind, now and always, for evermore.

Amen


A reflection on the homeless

Reflections for the day

Philippians 4:19

 And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.


Matthew 6:25-34

Do Not Worry

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?  Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your lifeAnd why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labour or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendour was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

When a man has found the Lord, he no longer has to use words when he is praying, for the Spirit Himself will intercede for him with groans that cannot be uttered. –John Climacus

A reflection on the homeless

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 us to be born with a particular appearance, thou created us to be born with a particular shape, thou created us to be born with a particular colour, and thou created us 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 is a love that enables us to love thou neighbour.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we desire Man to reflect carefully upon the nature of homelessness. We acknowledge that thou Scriptures reveal that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was homeless some of the time, and we acknowledge that thou Scriptures reveal that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was with thou homeless some of the time, and was with those who were poor some of the time. We acknowledge that thou Scriptures teach us that thou poor and thou vulnerable are the responsibility of Man, and we acknowledge that thou Scriptures teach us that when a person gives unto thou poor, and when a person gives unto thou vulnerable, that person gives unto thou.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we uphold to thou the good works of St Mungo’s. We are able to see that this is a charity who works with thou homeless, and we are able to see that there is a desire to help those who are homeless, and we are able to see that there is a desire for the homeless to be housed, and we are able to see that there is a desire for the homeless to work, and we are able to see that there is a  desire for the homeless to be able to relate to others, and we are able to see there is a desire for the homeless to be in a state of health that is described as good.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to bless the good works of St Mungo’s and we ask thou to place opportunities before many to enable their good works to be carried out in a way that is fitting for thou.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we ask Man to reflect carefully upon those who are likely to be made homeless, and we hope and we pray that Man will endeavour to remain committed to providing housing for those who are vulnerable, and we hope and we pray that Man will endeavour to remain committed to providing housing for those who are poor, and to provide housing for those who are in need.

Heavenly Father, we ask that Man will turn to thou always, we ask that Man will turn a back on greed, and we ask that Man will turn a back upon ignoring the misfortune of others.

Heavenly Father, thou art a loving Father, and thou art a merciful Father, and thou art able to provide us with all our needs. We desire that Mankind will turn to thou always, and we desire that Mankind will emulate the life of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and we desire that Mankind will say sorry for the error of a way and make the changes in a life that are necessary.

Heavenly Father, we uphold these words to thou now in thou name of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us to save us from all our sin, and in thou name of thou Holy Spirit, who lives amongst us, who dwells amongst us, and who advocates for us,now and always, for evermore.

Amen.


A reflection on responsibility

Reflections for the day

1 Corinthians 15:58

Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labour in the Lord is not in vain.

Romans 8:1-2

Life through the Spirit

Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.


A reflection on responsibility (one of several)

Heavenly Father,

We are able to see in a way that is clear that  Our Lord Jesus Christ, died for us in order to save us from all of our sins, and to show us the way to you, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that Our Lord Jesus Christ, died in a manner which caused him pain. We are able to see in a way that is clear that Our Lord Jesus Christ, died in a manner which caused him suffering, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that Our Lord Jesus Christ, died in a manner which caused him heartbreak.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are many who believe in your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are many who believe in a resurrection. We are able to see in a way that is clear that there are many who believe that the death of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is one that is largely ignored.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that we have a responsibility towards you, and there are many who are able to see in a way that is clear that this responsibility is one that is enduring, and there are many who are able to see in a way that is clear that a responsibility is one of looking after another. We are able to see in a way that is clear that this responsibility is one that enables some to use a gift you have bestowed upon some, and those gifts are ones that are to do with money, and those gifts are ones to do with time, and those gifts are ones to do with energy, and those gifts are ones to do with talent, and those gifts are ones to do with bodies, and those gifts are ones to do with minds, and those gifts are ones to do with your Holy Spirit.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we ask you to guide Mankind in a daily life, and we ask you to guide many to balance a work life with a private life, and we ask you to guide many to invest all that we have in you.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that many have a position of responsibility, and this position of responsibility is one that often carries a sense of power, and this position of responsibility is one that often places a person in the eye of the public. Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that those who are in a position of responsibility, and those who are in a position of power, will reflect carefully upon a responsibility to another, and we hope and we pray that those who are in a position of responsibility, and those who are in a position of power, will turn to you always.

Heavenly Father, there are some who are unable to see a way forward in a way that is clear, and there are some who desire to be more responsible, and there are many who desire to be more obedient. Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that those who are unable to see a way forward in a way that is clear will reflect upon all that is said in the name of you, Our Heavenly Father.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to yourself, Our Heavenly Father, all that has been said in the name of the Father, and in the name of the Son, and in the name of the Holy Ghost, who lives within Man, and who dwells amongst Man, and who advocates for Man, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

A reflection on endurance

Reflections for the day

Romans 5:3-4

Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.

Hebrews 12:1-3

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart

James 1:12

 Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.

All who have walked with God have viewed prayer as the main business of their lives.

– Delma Jackson

A reflection on endurance

Heavenly Father,

Thou art the creator of thou world that we live in, and thou hath created all things known to Mankind, and thou hath created all things unseen by Mankind. We acknowledge that all things are created for a purpose, and we acknowledge that all things are created with a purpose. We acknowledge that all things are done in thou own good time.

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

Heavenly Father, thou art a loving Father, and thou art a compassionate Father, and thou loves each and every one of us. Thou love for Mankind is one that is all encompassing, and thou love for Mankind is one that is not bound by words, and thou love for Mankind is one that is not bound by time, and thou love for Mankind is one that is not bound by energy. Thou love for 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. Thou love for Mankind is one that enables thou love for all to spill over into a relationship, and thou love for Mankind is one that enables all to love thou neighbour.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, died a death that is one that can be described as one of suffering. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was able to endure a time on the cross, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou intended thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, to die in this way in order for thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, to bear all sin of Mankind, and in order for all to find thou way to thou.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that St Paul was a man that lived a life of endurance, and that through a life of endurance he was seen as thou servant.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect carefully upon the nature of endurance, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou desire is for Mankind to persevere during a time that is difficult, and that in order for many to persevere there is a need to place a trust, and there is a need to place a faith, and there is a need to place a belief in thou. We acknowledge that thou art Our Heavenly Father, who is faithful to all Mankind, and we acknowledge that thou art with all of Mankind, always, in a way that can be described as divine. 

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide many at a time of difficulty, and we ask thou to uplift many during a time of difficulty.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that all need to remain steadfast in a faith of thou, and we are able to see in a way that is clear  that there is a  need to stand firm in a faith of thou, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there is a need to continue to do thou work that thou hath called all to do in thou name.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide all to endure a time that is difficult with patience, and we ask thou to guide all in a daily life, and we ask thou to guide many to turn a back on a temptation that can be described as one that is sinful, and to turn to thou always.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou, at this time, to place a number of opportunities before the organisers of the London Marathon, and to reflect carefully upon a recent event, and we hope and we pray that the organisers of the London Marathon are able to address an issue that may exist with enabling a participant of the London Marathon to be one who is fit, and to be one who is healthy to participate.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that if a trial, and if a tribulation, is endured in thou name of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, that all will be blessed with a life that is eternal with thou, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that an endurance is necessary for all to grow in a way that can be described as spiritual, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that many will need to turn to thou for a comfort, and for a strength, in order to persevere, and in order to endure.

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 together with thou Holy Spirit, is, and was, and always will be, the most supreme, and 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.
