A reflection on healing

Reflections for the day

1 Peter 5:10

And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.

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.

Philippians 4:19

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

A reflection on healing

 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, and we praise thou for thou power, and we praise thou for thou mightiness. 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, 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 to emulate thou life of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. We acknowledge that thou sent thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, into thou world in order to redeem all of Mankind from all sins, and in order to show all of Mankind thou way to thou.

Heavenly Father, thou art Our Heavenly Father who is loving, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who is compassionate. We aknowledge that many are able to express a love for thou, and we aknowledge that thou love that is expressed for all of Mankind is one that is all encompassing. We acknowledge that thou love that thou hath for all of Mankind is one that endures, and we acknowledge that thou love thou hath for all of Mankind is one that is eternal. We acknowledge that thou love thou hath for all of Mankind is one that is there for all, and we acknowledge that thou love thou hath for all of Mankind is one that thou desires all of Mankind to perceive and to discern.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect upon the nature of healing. We are able to see in a way that is clear that for a self there has been an event in a life that has caused a self a pain, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that for a self there has been an event in a life that has caused a self an anguish. We are able to see in a way that is clear that for some a memory of an event in a life of a self remains painful, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that for some a memory of an event in a life of a self continues to cause a self an anguish. We acknowledge that a pain, and we acknowlege that an anguish, is one that is, at times, one that causes a feeling of hopelessness, and we acknowledge that a pain and an anguish is, at times, one that causes a feeling of bitterness, and that a feeling of bitterness is one that is felt toward another. We acknowledge that a pain, and we acknowledge that an anguish is, at times, one that is a feeling of anger toward another, and we acknowledge that a pain and an anguish is, at times, one that causes a feeling of hate toward another, and we acknowledge that a pain and an anguish is, at times, one that causes a feeling of a resentment toward another, and we acknowledge that, at times, a feeling that is one that can be described as one that is less than desirable is one that can be felt toward thouself, Our Heavenly Father.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou desire is for all of Mankind to turn to thou always, and we acknowledge that thou desire is for a self to place a worry, and for a self to place a concern with thou, and we acknowledge that thou desire is for all of Mankind to be healed, and we acknowledge that thou desire is for a self to be restored in a way that is described as spiritual.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide all of Mankind to reflect upon an event in a life of a self that is an event that has caused a self a pain, and we ask thou to guide all of Mankind to reflect upon an event in a life of a self that is an event that has caused a self an anguish, and we ask thou to guide a self to perceive and to discern that thou art always present, and we ask thou to guide a self to perceive and to discern that thou art able to heal a self if a self turns to thou. We ask thou to guide a self to come to terms with an event in a life that is one that has been an event that has caused a pain, and we ask thou to guide a self to turn to thou always.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we uphold to thouself, thou children of the Watoto Choir. We are able to see in a way that is clear that many of thou children of the Watoto Choir have suffered, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that many of thou children of the Watoto Choir have found what is described as a peace that is inner. Heavenly Father, we ask thouself for thou blessing on a time spent by thou children of the Watoto Choir in thou British Isles.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that a self must be able to place a trust in thou, and we acknowledge that a self must place a worry, and a self must place a concern with thou, and we acknowledge that thou art able to heal a self if a self is able to put aside a worry, and is able to put aside a concern, and is able to put aside an anguish, and is able to put aside a pain.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that all of Mankind will reflect carefully upon the need to turn to thou, and we hope and we pray that a self will see a need to put aside all feelings that are ones that can be described as less than desirable, in order 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 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 self-esteem

Reflections of the day

1 Samuel 16:7

The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

1 Peter 3:3-4

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewellery or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.

Oh, what a cause of thankfulness it is that we have a gracious God to go to on all occasions! Use and enjoy this privilege and you can never be miserable. Oh, what an unspeakable privilege is prayer!

Lady Maxwell

The passion side of prayer is our intimate one-on-one time with the Lord. Just the two of you; talking things over; listening to each other-telling him how much you love him. This is pure joy and it pours oil and grace on all the rest of life. Just like the intimate parts of marriage make all the rest of your life together worthwhile.

A reflection on self-esteem

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, we acknowledge that thou loves each and every one of us, and 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 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 cannot be bound by words, and we acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that cannot be bound by time, and we acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that cannot be bound by energy. 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 allows all of Mankind to love thou neighbour, in thou way that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, loves us all.

Heavenly Father, thou art Our Heavenly Father that knows all, and thou art Our Heavenly Father that sees all, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who is in possession of all thou facts. We acknowledge that thou hath created a plan for each and every one of us.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect upon the nature of self-esteem. We are able to see in a way that is clear that there are times when some feel an inadequacy, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are times when some feel a dislike for a self that is of a self, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are times when some feel less than worthy. We acknowledge that for some a feeling of inadequacy, and a feeling of a dislike that is there for a self that is of a self, and a feeling that is felt of being less than worthy is one that remains. We acknowledge that for some an upbringing has been one that has been  less than perfect, and for a self  this has meant a feeling of a rejection, and for a self this has meant an experience of neglect, and for a self this has meant an experience of an abuse from another, and for a self this has meant an experience that has led to an addiction, and for a self an addiction is one that is of alcoholism, and for a self an addiction is one that is of a dependency for drugs.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that for a self all of these experiences are ones that are not desirable, and we acknowledge that all of these experiences are ones that have an effect on a self who experiences a feeling that is one that is less than desirable, and we acknowledge that an effect for a self who experiences a feeling of inadequacy, a feeling of a dislike that is there for a self that is of a self, and a feeling that is felt of being less than worthy, and a feeling of rejection, is one that is of a depression, and an effect for a self is one that can, at times, be of a relationship which some say is unhealthy, and the effect for a self is one that is of a dependency, and a dependency is one that can be one of alcohol, and a dependency is one that can be one of a use of a chemical substance.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we hope and we pray that all of Mankind will turn to thou, and we hope and we pray that a self is able to see a way forward in a way that is clear that a life of a self has a purpose, and that a purpose is of one to turn to thou, always.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that all of Mankind are able to see in a way that is clear that there is a love for all of Mankind by thou, and we hope and we pray that a self is able to see in a way that is clear that a love of thou is one that is worth having, and we hope and we pray that a self is able to see in a way that is clear that a love that is there for all allows a love for all others.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that what is known as a self-esteem is one that needs to be healthy, and to be healthy must be one that is one that is not based on a self-conceit but one that is based on a humility, and one that is based on a meekness, and one that is based upon a dependency on thou.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that a self  will reflect carefully upon the nature of a self-conceit, and we hope and we pray that a self will see the error of a way, and we hope and we pray that a self will say say sorry for an error of a way, and we hope and we pray that a self will make the changes in a life that are necessary, in order to show a repentance.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we acknowledge the works that are good of all who teach, and all who relate to a pupil, and all who relate to a student, in terms of managing the needs of a child, and in terms of managing the needs of a young person who has a self-esteem that is one that can be described as one that is less than desirable.

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 is thou way, and who is thou truth, and who is thou life, and who shows all of Mankind thou way to thou, 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 elderly

Reflections for the day

Psalm 92:14

They will still bear fruit in old age,
they will stay fresh and green,

Prayer is the force as real as terrestrial gravity. As a physician, I have seen men, after all other therapy had failed, lifted out of disease and melancholy by the serene effort of prayer. Only in prayer do we achieve that complete and harmonious assembly of body, mind and spirit which gives the frail human reed its unshakable strength.

– Dr. Alexis Carrel

A reflection on the elderly

Heavenly Father,

Thou art the creator of thou world that we live in, and thou hath created all things seen by Mankind, and all things unseen by Mankind. Thou art almighty, and thou art most powerful, and we praise thou, and we glorify thou name on high.

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

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that when many grow old that many have a health which is less than desirable, and we are able to see in a way that is clear there are many  who are able to see that in years ahead there may be a loneliness.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are some who are more able than another, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are some who despite an age that is considered old are able to do a number of things, and that a number of things that are achieved are ones that are usually achieved by another who is younger. We are able to see in a way that is clear there are some who are elderly who desire to grow closer to thou, and there are some who are able to see in a way that is clear that this is achievable.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we desire that Mankind will reflect carefully upon a relationship with thou, and it is at this time we desire that Mankind will reflect carefully upon a relationship with another, and it is at this time we desire that Mankind is able to see where there is a  need to make a change in a life, and the changes that are needed to be made are ones that are necessary in order to have a relationship with thou.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide all in a daily life, and we ask thou to guide many to grow closer to thou, and we ask thou to guide many to be disciplined in all that is thought, and in all that is said, and in all that is done.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that many will turn toward thou, and we hope and we pray that many will make the changes in a life that are necessary, and we hope and we pray that many will reflect carefully upon a life, and we hope and we pray that many will say sorry for the errors that have been made in a life, and we hope and we pray that many will grow 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 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, the most supreme, and the most absolute power, and being, who reigns over all who are of this world that we live in, now and always for evermore.

Amen.

A reflection on commendation

Reflections for the day

Luke 21:1-4

The Widow’s Offering

As Jesus looked up, he saw the rich putting their gifts into the temple treasury. He also saw a poor widow put in two very small copper coins. “Truly I tell you,” he said, “this poor widow has put in more than all the others. All these people gave their gifts out of their wealth; but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.”

Hebrews 10:24

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds,

A reflection on commendation

 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 allows all 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. Thou love for Mankind is one that allows a love for thou to spill over into a relationship, and thou love for Mankind is one that allows all to love thou neighbour.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou Scriptures teach Mankind that during thou ministry of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was able to see in a way that was clear a good deed of another. We are able to see in a way that is clear that a good deed of another is one that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, acknowledged in a way that was public. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Scriptures teach Mankind that all should “not hold back good from those to whom it is owing, when it happens to be in the power of your hand to do it.”

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that some feel that an effort goes unnoticed by another. We acknowledge that there are some who feel an effort is one that is not appreciated, and we acknowledge that there are some who feel an effort for another is taken for granted. We acknowledge that there are some who feel unable to live up to an expectation of another.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou art a loving Father and that thou loves each and everyone of us, and we hope and we pray that many will turn to thou with a worry, and we hope and we pray that many will turn to thou with a concern always.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Scriptures teach Mankind to treat another with a kindness. We are able to see in a way that is clear that a word of kindness to another, and a word that can be described as a commendation to another, is one that is able to uplift another in a way that can be described as spiritual. We are able to see in a way that is clear that for many in the giving of a word of kindness, and in the giving of a word of commendation, that there is an experience that can be described as a feeling of joy and a feeling of contentment.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide Mankind to seek out all that is good in another, and we ask thou to guide Mankind to acknowledge all that is good in another.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we commend to thou the good works of those who oversee and the good works of those who contribute to what is described as a foodbank. We are able to see in a way that is clear that those who are in receipt of food from a foodbank are thankful, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that for some it is a means of avoiding what can be described as impoverishment.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that Mankind will reflect carefully upon an action, and we hope and we pray that many will do what is seen to be good, and we hope and we pray that Mankind is able to acknowledge a time when a good deed has been done.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to thouself, Our Heavenly Father, all that is spake in thou name of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, and in thou name of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for Mankind in order to save Mankind from all sins, and to show all thou way to thou, 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 Resurrection of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ

Reflections for the day

John 11:25-26

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

1 Corinthians 15:12-18

The Resurrection of the Dead

Now if Christ is proclaimed as raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain. We are even found to be misrepresenting God, because we testified about God that he raised Christ, whom he did not raise if it is true that the dead are not raised. For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins.  Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished.


A reflection on The Resurrection 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 Mankind, and all things unseen by Mankind. Thou art almighty, and thou art most powerful, and we praise thou for thou power and mightiness. We acknowledge that many of the events that happen in a life, and many of the events that have happened in a time gone by, have happened for a reason.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge thou majesty of thou risen Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and we acknowledge thou purity of thou risen Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and we acknowledge thou power of thou risen Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time of Easter that we reflect upon the meaning of the resurrection of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. We acknowledge that the doctrine of the resurrection of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is one that is central to the Christian Faith. We acknowledge that the resurrection of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was one that gave a meaning to a crucifixion, and we acknowledge that a crucifixion of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was one that thou intended, and thou intention was for the death of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, to be one that took on the sins of all Mankind, and that by taking on the sins of all Mankind, thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, showed all Mankind thou way to thou.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Scriptures reveal a number of occasions when thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, appeared in the flesh following a resurrection, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Scriptures reveal that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, appeared in daylight, and in a lit room, and that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was able to appear and was able to disappear at will, and that an appearance is one that can be described as visible, and an appearance is one that can be described as tangible. We are able to see in a way that is clear that on an occasion when thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, appeared to thou disciples, and on an occasion when thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, appeared to another, that there was an  appearance of a likeness of a body as that in which thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, had been entombed.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that many accept that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was conceived by what is described as by a conception of immaculation, and we acknowledge that thou Son,Our Lord Jesus Christ, lived a life that is described as one free from sin, and we acknowledge that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, died a death to save Mankind from all sin by showing all thou way to thou, and thou way to thou is through a forgiveness of all sins, and by a repentance by a self.

Heavenly Father, all of thou life, and all of thou ministry, and the death and the resurrection of thou Son,Our Lord Jesus Christ, is accepted by many in faith. We are able to see in a way that is clear that the death and the resurrection of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was necessary in order for all to perceive, and in order for all to discern, an origin of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and that the death and the resurrection of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was necessary in order for all to perceive, and in order for all to discern, that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, had accomplished what was promised in terms of proclaiming the word of thouself, and was necessary in order for all to perceive, and in order for all to discern, that the death and the resurrection of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was a fulfilment of thou prophecies of thou Old Testament, and that it was necessary in order for all to perceive, and in order for all to discern, that the death and resurrection of thou Son, Our  Lord Jesus Christ, provided thou way to thou through the forgiveness of all sin, and through a repentance of a sin by a self.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that many believe in the resurrection of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. We acknowledge that some fail to understand the significance of the resurrection of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we ask thou to guide all Mankind to reflect carefully on the error of a way, and we ask thou to guide many to say sorry for an error of a way, and we ask thou to guide many to repent for an error of a way. We hope and we pray that many will see a day as the beginning of a journey toward thou light which is eternal and is of thou, and we hope and we pray that many are able to see in a way that is clear that a path toward thou light which is one that is eternal, is one which is straight, and is one which is narrow, and we hope and we pray that many will turn to thou always.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to thouself, Our Heavenly Father, all that thouself hath 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 always will 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.

Amen.

A reflection on the Christian Faith (one of several)

Reflections for the day

John 20:6-8

Then Simon Peter came along behind him and went straight into the tomb. He saw the strips of linen lying there, as well as the cloth that had been wrapped around Jesus’ head. The cloth was still lying in its place, separate from the linen. Finally the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went inside. He saw and believed.

Ephesians 2:8-9

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.

James 2:14

14 What use is it, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but he has no works? Can that faith save him?

Prayer is of transcendent importance. Prayer is the mightiest agent to advance God’s work. Praying hearts and hands only can do God’s work. Prayer succeeds when all else fails.

– E. M. Bounds

A reflection on the Christian faith (one of several)

Heavenly Father,

It is at this time of Holy Week that we reflect upon the nature of faith, and it is at this time of Holy Week we acknowledge the time when thou disciples of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, went into the tomb where thou body of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, had been placed. We acknowledge that in the tomb where thou body of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, had been placed the disciples of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, were able to see in a way that was clear that the grave-clothes of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, lay in what can be described as a fold that was original, and that the body of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was absent.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou disciples saw, and thou disciples believed, and that a belief was one in the resurrection of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that many know that to have a faith of thou is to believe, and is to trust, in the unseen. We are able to see in a way that is clear that many  have a faith of thou that believes that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, died on a cross for  all Mankind, in order to show all Mankind thou way to thou.

Heavenly Father, thou art a loving Father, and thou art a merciful Father, and we are thankful that by thou grace thou are able to save all from a sin. Heavenly Father, we are thankful that through thou forgiveness a sin can be forgiven, if a sorrow is proffered for the error of a way, and a change in a life is made that reflects an error of a way.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide Mankind in a daily life to be able to express a love for thou. Heavenly Father, we are thankful that there is assurance of a continued salvation through thou presence of thou Holy Spirit who lives within Man, and who dwells amongst Man, and who advocates for Man. We are thankful that through thou sanctifying grace many are able to grow and are able to mature in a faith of thou, and we hope and we pray that all are able to live a life that emulates thou life of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we acknowledge the many who demonstrate a love for thou, and it is at this time we acknowledge the many who attended a walk of witness of yesterday in thou name of thouself, and the many who contributed to a performance known as “The Passion of Jesus,” at Trafalgar Square in thou name of thouself, and for a performance at Preston which brought many together in thou name of thou.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge a request of thou former Archbishop of Cantebury, to wear a cross as a symbol of a faith of thou, and we hope and we pray that all will be able to perceive, and that all will be able to discern, that a cross is a symbol of a faith of thou, and is one that should be permitted to be worn.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that there is a need to demonstrate a faith of thou by deed, and that in order to do so there is a need to think all in thou name of thou, and to say all in thou name of thou, and to do all in thou name of thou. We are able to see in a way that is clear that there is a need to respond with compassion to a need of another, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there is a need to work for justice in a community. Heavenly Father, we ask thou to strengthen thou call to love thou neighbour, and we ask thou to increase a desire to emulate thou life of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we uphold to thou the good work of the many who contribute, and the good work of the many who manage a food bank for the many who are in need of nourishment.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we hope and we pray that many will reflect carefully upon the nature of faith, and we ask that many are able to see in a way that is clear that to have a faith of thou requires what is described as a good work to be done in thou name of thouself. We ask that thou can guide all, and we ask thou to direct all so that an inner thought, and so that an inner motive, and so that a deed, and so that a behaviour, is one that remains in an alignment with 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 in thou name of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and in thou name of thou Holy Spirit, who reigns on most high, and who is, and who was, and who will always be, the most supreme, and the most absolute power and being, that reigns over all who are of this earth that we live on, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

A reflection on the Christian Faith

Reflections for the day

Hebrews 11:1-3

Faith in Action

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for. By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.

Faith, and hope, and patience and all the strong, beautiful, vital forces of piety are withered and dead in a prayerless life. The life of the individual believer, his personal salvation, and personal Christian graces have their being, bloom, and fruitage in prayer.

– E. M. Bounds

A reflection on The Christian Faith (one of several)

Heavenly Father,

We are able to see in a way that is clear that many are able to express a love for you, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that the love that is expressed by yourself, Our Heavenly Father, for all Mankind is one that is all encompassing. We are able to see in a way that is clear that the love that you have for all Mankind is one that endures, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that the love that you have for all Mankind is one that is eternal. We acknowledge that many are able to see in a way that is clear that the love you have for Mankind is one that is there for all, and that the love you have for Mankind is one that you desire all to know, and all to perceive, and all to discern.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that some are unable to see how some can love you, and we acknowledge that some prefer to see rather than believe, and we acknowledge that some would prefer to have a proof or to have an evidence of the existence of you. We acknowledge that many know that to have a faith of you is to believe and is to trust in the unseen, and we acknowledge that many know that to have a faith of you is to believe without question.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that Mankind will reflect carefully on the meaning of a faith of you, and we hope and we pray  that many can accept that to have a faith of you is to believe in your existence without a proof, and without an evidence.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that many have a faith of you that is strong, and we acknowledge that many are many are able to accept your existence without a proof and without an evidence, and we acknowledge that many are able to accept your existence without a need to hear a response to a prayer that is upheld in the name of yourself.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we desire for Mankind to turn to you in faith, and it is at this time we desire Mankind to recognise your existence, and it is at this time we desire Mankind to say sorry for the error of a way.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that some desire that a faith of you is stronger, and we acknowledge that some desire that you will make your presence known to a self. We are able to see in a way that is clear that you make your presence known in a number of ways, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that these ways are ones that are commonly known as a coincidence. Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that many will understand that a coincidence that happens in a life happens for a reason. Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that many will understand that a coincidence that happens in a life happens in your own time. Heavenly Father, we ask you to guide many to be aware of a response to a prayer, and we ask you to guide many to understand that a prayer cannot always be answered in the way that we hope a prayer will be answered.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to yourself all that has been said in the name of yourself, Our Heavenly Father, and in the name of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and in the name of your 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 safe haven

Reflections of the day

Psalm 23

A psalm of David.

 The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.

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

“The essence of prayer does not consist in asking God for something but in opening our hearts to God, in speaking with Him, and living with Him in perpetual communion. Prayer is a continual abandonment to God. Prayer does not mean asking God for all kinds of things we want; it is rather the desire for God Himself, the only Giver of Life, Prayer is not asking, but union with God. Prayer is not a painful effort to gain from God help in the varying needs of our lives. Prayer is the desire to possess God Himself, the Source of all life. The true spirit of prayer does not consist in asking for blessings, but in receiving Him who is the giver of all blessings, and in living a life of fellowship with Him.” Sadhu Sundar Singh


A reflection upon safe haven

Heavenly Father,

Thou art the creator of thou world that we live in, and thou art creator of all things known to Mankind, and thou art creator of all things unseen by Mankind. Thou art almighty, and thou art most powerful, and we praise thou for thou power, and we praise thou for thou mightiness.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that all things are possible through thou if there is a faith and if there is an understanding of thou. Thou art a loving Father, and thou art a compassionate Father, who loves each and every one of us. We acknowledge that 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 energy, and thou love for Mankind is one that is not bound by time. We acknowledge thou love for Mankind allows 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 is one that over-spills into a relationship, and is one that allows all to love thou neighbour.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time of Lent we acknowledge that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, cares for all Mankind, and has a love for all Mankind, and a care for all Mankind, and a love for all Mankind, is revealed in thou Scriptures as a care and as a love a Shepherd has for a sheep.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, revealed to all Mankind in thou Scriptures that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is able to provide a safe haven for all, and a safe haven for all is one that guides all to remain on thou path which is a path that is straight, and which is a path that is narrow, toward thou light which is eternal. We are able to see in a way that is clear that a safe haven is one that guides all to turn a back on evil, and there is a provision for all, if all choose thou way to thou through the proffering of a sin in sorrow, and with a will to incur a change in a life that is necessary, in order to reflect a repentance for a sin that has been committed.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that the care and the love given by thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is one that is nurturing, and that this is a nurturing that is one that is of a nourishment that is spiritual, and a nourishment that is spiritual is one that is available for all Mankind  through the proffering of a prayer that is proffered on a basis that is daily, and is on a basis that is regular, and through the reading of thou Scriptures, which is read on a basis that is daily, in order to perceive, and in order to discern, thou thoughts of thouself, Our Heavenly Father.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide all in a daily life, and we ask thou to guide all to bring to thouself in prayer, a worry, and a concern. We are thankful that thou cares for all Mankind, and we are thankful that thou love is for all Mankind, and thou love for all Mankind is one that is likened to that of a Shepherd who cares for all of a flock, and we are thankful that through prayer, and through a study of thou Scriptures, that many are able to be uplifted in a way that is described as spiritual.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we bring to you thou people who are held against a will. We ask at this time that thou people are able to draw a comfort by thou presence. It is at this time we uphold to thou the family known as Nubbitt who are a family who have endured much in the past six months, and we ask thou to comfort and strengthen the family known as Nubbit as there is a need to come to terms with an event that has happened.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that all Mankind has a freedom of will, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that all of what happens in thou world is due to a freedom of will. We hope and we pray that Mankind will reflect carefully upon the error of a way, and we hope and we pray that many will say sorry for an error of a way, and we hope and we pray that all will repent.

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 thouself, Our Heavenly Father, and with thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, reigns on most high, and is, and was, and always will be, the most supreme, and the most absolute power and being, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

A reflection on being a witness to Christianity

Reflections for the day

You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid. No one after lighting a lamp put it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.

Matthew 5: 14-16

If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow him. For those who want to save their life will lose it and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel will save it.

Mark 8: 34

We waste most of our time trying to get God to do something He has already done—or praying for God to do something He told us to do. –Jacquelyn K. Heasley


A reflection on being a witness for Christianity

Heavenly Father,

It is at this time we reflect upon the ministry of your son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. We are able to see in a way that is clear that your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, revealed to all Mankind a purpose of a ministry was to fulfil a law and to uphold a word spoken by a prophet. We are able to see in a way that is clear that your Sermon on the Mount defined the role of a Christian. We are able to see in a way that is clear that your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, decreed there is a need to proclaim the word that is of yours. We are able to see in a way that is clear that your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, commanded your disciple Peter, to build your church which upholds your name on a foundation that is secure.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, spoke of a city built on a hill that cannot be hid. We acknowledge that you call all Mankind to be what is described as the light of your world, and the light of your world is one that reflects the glory of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and a light such as this is one that reveals to all Mankind the love that is there for all.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that a work that is good will be seen by another, and a work that is good is one that will glorify yourself. Heavenly Father, your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, came into your world in order to save all Mankind from sin, and in order to show all the way to you, and a truth that is yours, and a life with yourself which is eternal.

Heavenly Father, we ask you to guide all Mankind in a daily life. We are able to see in a way that is clear that an attendance at church that is regular on a basis that is weekly, and a prayer that is proffered on a basis that is daily and throughout the day, will allow a self to be nourished in a way that is spiritual. Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that your Church is a landmark in a way that is spiritual, and in a way that is physical, and we acknowledge that an attendance at your Church on a basis that is weekly will allow all Mankind to be able to perceive, and to be able to discern, that is a desire of yourself, Our Heavenly Father.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that much has been said in the media about a practice of Christianity, and about an observance of a Christian Faith. We are able to see in a way that is clear that many desire for a practice of the Christian Faith to be visible. Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that to follow your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, all must deny much that is in your world that we live in, and that to gain a life that is eternal with your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, there is a need to put aside all that is worldly that is abhorrent to you.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that a symbol of the cross is one which upholds all of a faith of Christianity, and is a symbol that is fitting, and is a symbol which reminds many that your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, died upon a cross, in order to save all Mankind from sin, and in order to show all Mankind the way to you, and in order for a forgiveness to be made if a sorrow for a sin is proffered and a will is evident to incur a change in a life that is necessary.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that many desire to show all a difference your Son, Our Jesus Christ, makes in a life. We hope and we pray that many will desire to uphold your name in a way that is fitting. We hope and we pray that all Mankind will reflect carefully upon the teachings of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and is able to see your purpose in a life.

Heavenly Father, we uphold all that has been said in the name of yourself, Our Heavenly Father, who together with your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and your Holy Spirit, is a redeemer of all sin, and sitteth on the right side of you, Our Heavenly Father, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

A reflection on hope

A reflection for the day

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 understanding, will guard [barricade] your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  (Philippians 4:6-7).

A reflection on hope

Heavenly Father,

We are able to see in a way that is clear that many lead a life that is busy and is often stressful. We are able to see in a way that is clear that for some there is a difficulty in seeing a way forward in a way that is clear, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that for some this means a burden that is carried is one that is heavy.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we acknowledge your gift to your world which was your only begotten Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. It is at this time many are able to see in a way that is clear a relevance of the life of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and a relevance to a death of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. It is at this time many are able to see that your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, came into your world as a poor and helpless babe. We are able to see in a way that is clear that your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, lived a life as a man, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, turned a back on a life that was worldly, in order to minister to the poor, and in order to minister to the sick, and in order to minister to the needy. We are able to see in a way that is clear that there is a need to reflect upon a death of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, as one of a suffering, and a death, and a resurrection, as one that shows all Mankind the way to you, Our Heavenly Father. We are able to see in a way that is clear that a resurrection of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is a symbol of a hope of a new beginning in a life, and a new beginning in a life will mean all Mankind must live out a faith in all aspects of a life.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that a life can be enriched by you if a faith, and if a trust, and if a belief is placed with you. We are able to see in a way that is clear that all concerns, and all worries, and all dismays, and all sadness, must be put to one side in order to enjoy a relationship with you that is enriched. We are able to see in a way that is clear that you are able to guide all Mankind in a daily life.

Heavenly Father, we ask you to guide many to have a sense of purpose that is clear. We are thankful that you are able to strengthen and protect all who seek you out in prayer. We are thankful that you are Our Forgiving Heavenly Father, and you are Our Compassionate Heavenly Father.

Heavenly Father, we ask you to guide many so that a life is one that is centred on you. We hope and we pray that many will emulate a love and a care that is there for all Mankind that is of yours. Heavenly Father, we acknowledge your love for Mankind is abundant.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we are able to see in a way that is clear that many give and have given in a way that is financial, during a time of affliction, and during a time of poverty. It is at this time we acknowledge the works that are good of all charities here in the United Kingdom. We ask you to bless the works that are good of all charities. We hope and we pray that many of your people who hold a position in power, and  many of your people who hold a position in office, and many of your people who hold a position in business, will continue to provide a finance  to a charity.

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

Amen.
