A reflection on what is described as designer babies with reference to Thou Sanctity of Life

Reflections for the day

Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men. Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers, pray for powers equal to your task.

Phillips Brooks

A reflection on what is described as designer babies with reference to Thou Sanctity of Life

Heavenly Father,

Thou art Our heavenly Father who is loving, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who is compassionate, and thou loves each and every one of us. Thou love for Mankind is one that is all encompassing, and thou love for Mankind is one that is eternal, and thou love for Mankind is one that endures. 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 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 overspills into a relationship, and thou love for Mankind is one that enables all to love thou neighbour in thou way that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, loves all of Mankind.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect upon the nature of what is described as a design to change a makeup of Mankind, that is one that can be described as the genetic makeup of Mankind. We are able to see in a way that is clear that much has been said in the media about what is described as a design to change a makeup of Mankind, that is one that is described as the genetic makeup of Mankind, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that much has been said in the media about what is described as a research into a way of making a change of one that is described as the makeup of Mankind, that is one that is described as the genetic makeup of Mankind. We are able to see in a way that is clear that there are some who desire that the makeup of Mankind, that is one that is described as the genetic makeup of Mankind, is one that should be changed in order that a characteristic of Mankind, that is desirable, is one that can be present in Mankind, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are some who desire that the makeup of Mankind, that is one that is described as the genetic makeup of Mankind, is one that should be changed in order that a characteristic of Mankind, that is less than desirable, is one that can be omitted from all of Mankind.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that an issue of a change to the makeup of Mankind, that is described as the genetic makeup of Mankind, is an issue that some are concerned about, and is one that is a concern that is of a nature known as Thou Sanctity of Life.

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

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that all Mankind has sinned ,and we acknowledge that a life of a self is one that cannot be described as without sin, and we acknowledge that thou art perfect. We acknowledge that thou have a plan for each and every one of us, and we acknowledge that a number of events that  have happened in a life of a self are events that may have happened for a reason, and we acknowledge that all things happen in thou own good time.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou plan for all Mankind is one where thou hath bestowed upon all of Mankind a gift of a freedom of will, and we acknowledge that thou desire is for all of Mankind to turn to thou, and we acknowledge that thou desire is for all of Mankind to tread a path, which is a path that is straight, and to tread a path, which is a path that is narrow, toward thou light which is eternal.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that each and every one of us is loved by thouself, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that each and every one of us is able to turn to thou through thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for all Mankind, in order to redeem all of Mankind from all sin, and to show all of Mankind thou way to thou.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide all of Mankind to see the error of a way, and we ask thou to guide all of Mankind to say sorry for the error of a way, and we ask thou to guide all of Mankind to make the changes that are necessary in a life of a self in order for many to remain upon thou path, which is a path that is straight, and which is a path that is narrow, toward thou light which is eternal.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that many believe that all things are possible through thou if there is a faith, and if there is a trust, and if there is a belief of thou. We ask thou to guide all of Mankind to be able to perceive, and to be able to discern, that all of Mankind live a life for a purpose, irrespective of what is described by some as a flaw in a nature, and irrespective of what is described by some as a flaw in an appearance, and irrespective of what is described by some as a flaw in a make-up that is one that is genetic.

Heavenly Father, we uphold all that has been spake to thouself, Our Heavenly Father, 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 is thou way to thou, and we uphold all that has 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 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 (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.

A reflection on the use of social network

Reflections for the day

 

“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you. Matthew 5 :11-12

I feel it is far better to begin with God, to see His face first, to get my soul near Him before it is near another. In general it is best to have at least one hour alone with God before engaging in anything else.

– E. M. Bounds

A reflection on the use of social network

Heavenly Father,

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

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that much has been said in the media about a social network site, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that what has been said about a social network site is of a concern.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that the issue of which many are concerned about is what some describe as a freedom of speech. We are able to see in a way that is clear that much has been said in the media about some who desire to say what is felt, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that much has been said in the media that an act of speech that is felt by some, on an occasion, to have been one that has caused a hurt to another, and has, on an occasion, been one that has caused a dismay to another.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we acknowledge that thou Scriptures reveal that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who thou sent into thou world to save Mankind from all sins, and to show Mankind thou way to thou, did teach all of Mankind in thou Sermon on thou Mount that “blessed are thou meek for they will inherit thou earth.”

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou desire is for all Mankind to refrain from making a comment, at times, and we acknowledge that thou desire is for all Mankind to choose a word carefully. We acknowledge that to refrain from making a comment, and we acknowledge that to choose a word carefully, shows what can be described as a strength in character, and that to refrain from making a comment, and to choose a word carefully, is one that is desired by thou. We acknowledge that to refrain from making a comment, and we acknowledge that by choosing a word carefully, will allow many 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 one that is eternal.

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 remain silent at times, and we ask thou to guide all of Mankind to choose a word carefully at all times.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that many will see a way forward in a way that is clear that there is a need to choose a word carefully when using what is described as a social network site.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to thouself, Our Heavenly Father, all that hath been spake in thou name of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, and we uphold all that hath been spake in thou name of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who is thou way, and who is thou truth, and who is thou life, and who is thou way to thou, and we uphold to thou 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 recent times in Burma

Reflections for the day

Proverbs 3:31-32

31 Envy thou not the oppressor, and choose none of his ways.

32 For the forward is abomination to the Lord: but his secret is with the righteous.


And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive

Matthew 21:22

“The greatest tragedy of life is not unanswered prayer, but unoffered prayer.”
F.B. Meyer

A reflection on recent times in Burma

Heavenly Father,

An issue that is of a  concern is one of a recent event that has occurred in thou nation of Burma, and a recent event that has  occurred in thou nation of Burma is one of a dissention between thou people of Burma, known as thou Rohingya people, and thou people of Burma known as thou Buddhist Rakhine. We are able to see in a way that is clear that a recent event that has occurred in thou nation of Burma is one which has been described as violent, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that a recent event that has occurred in thou nation of Burma is one which has caused the displacement of many. We are able to see in a way that is clear that much has been said in the media about what is described as a denial of access to many by the media, and we are able to see  in a way that is clear that much has been said in the media about what is described as a denial of access to many by an aid agency, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that much has been said in the media about what is described as a denial of access to many by a monitor for human rights.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before the Government of thou nation of Burma, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before the United Nations Security Council and Secretary General, and the opportunities we ask thou to provide before the Government of thou nation of Burma, and the opportunities we ask thou to provide before the United Nations Security Council and Secretary General, are ones where the Government of thou nation of Burma, and the United Nations Security Council and Secretary General, will reflect upon a recent event that has occurred between thou Rohingya people and thou Buddhist Rakhine of Burma, and to this end will reflect upon a way, and will reflect upon a manner, in which a recent event can be resolved.

Heavenly Father, we believe that the issue that there is a concern for  is one that can be resolved if the Government of thou nation of Burma, and the United Nations Security Council make the right choices. We hope and we pray that there will be an intervention by the United Nations Security Council and Secretary General, with a view of ensuring that a peace will prevail. We hope and we pray that a violence that has occurred between thou Rohingya people and thou Buddhist Rakhine will cease. We hope and we pray that there will be what can be described as an access of emergency aid for thou people of thou nation of Burma which are ones that are not hindered. We hope and we pray that thou nation known as Bangladesh will allow all who are described as refugees to have a haven of safety in thou nation of Bangladesh for thou people of thou nation of Burma. We hope and we pray that the Government of Burma will recognise thou Rohingya people as citizens of thou nation of Burma.

Heavenly Father, thou art Our Heavenly Father who is loving, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who is compassionate, and thou loves each and every one of us. Thou hath sent into thou world thou only Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, to save all of Mankind from all sins, and to show all of Mankind thou way to thou.

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. Thou creation was one that was perfect, and is one that thou desires for all of Mankind to keep as one that is perfect, and thou desire is for all of Mankind to be in a harmony with another.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to thouself, Our Heavenly Father, all that hath been spake in thou name of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, who together with thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and thou Holy Spirit, hath a desire for all of Mankind  to turn to thou, and hath a desire for all of Mankind to live in harmony with another, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

A reflection on charitable giving (one of several)

Reflections for the day

2 Corinthians 8:3-5

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

1 Timothy 6:17-18

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

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

John Calvin

A reflection on charitable giving (one of several)

Heavenly Father,


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Amen

Thou love of Our Heavenly Father

Reflections for the day

1 John 4:16

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

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

Luke 12:6-7

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

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


A reflection on thou Love of Our Heavenly Father

Heavenly Father,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Amen.

A reflection on advertising

Reflections for the day

Matthew 6:22-23

 “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!

Philippians 4:8

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

When prayer has become secondary, or incidental, it has lost its power. Those who are conspicuously men of prayer are those who use prayer as they use food, or air, or light, or money.”  M.E. Andross


A reflection on advertising

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 thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by words, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by time, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by energy. We acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that allows all of Mankind to love thou with all of a heart, and to love thou with all of a soul, and to love thou with all of a mind, and to love thou with all of a strength. We acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that overspills into a relationship, and we acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that 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 the creator of thou world that we live in, and thou hath created all things known to all of Mankind, and thou hath created all things unseen by all of Mankind. Thou art almighty, and thou art most powerful, and we praise thou, and we exalt thou, for thou power, and for thou mightiness.

Heavenly Father, thou sent thou beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, into thou world to die for all of Mankind in order to redeem all of Mankind from all sins, and in order to show all of Mankind thou way to thou. We acknowledge that during thou life of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, revealed to all of Mankind that there is a need to focus on thou always, and not on a self.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect upon the nature of advertising. We are able to see in a way that is clear that much of what happens in a life that is daily is one that is directed by a thought that can be described, at times, to be a thought that is materialistic in nature. We are able to see in a way that is clear that some thoughts are ones that can be affected by what is seen, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that some thoughts are ones that can be affected by what is heard in the media.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou world today is one that has an expectation, and we acknowledge that an expectation is one that is to do with, at times, a possession that is worldly. We are able to see in a way that is clear that there is a difficulty for a self to do what is described as take a step back and deny a need for a possession that is worldly. We are able to see in a way that is clear that at times, a self, is in need of thou guidance. We are able to see in a way that is clear that at times, a self is led astray by another, and at times, is led astray by a thought of a possession that is worldly.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that during a time of thou life of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, that there was an occasion when thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was tempted, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that at a time when thou Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, was tempted, was at a time when thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was in the wilderness, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that a temptation was one where Satan tempted thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, with thou world, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, rejected a temptation.

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

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that many can reflect carefully upon a purchase, and we hope and we pray that a self can discern what is needed as opposed to what is desired, and we hope and we pray that a self can see in a way that is clear that a possession that is worldly is meaningless in thou Kingdom of Heaven. We hope and we pray that all of Mankind will see the error of a way, and we hope and we pray that a self will proffer a sorrow for an error of a way, and we hope and we pray that a self will make the changes that are necessary in a life, so that a self is able to have a life that is eternal with thou.

Heavenly Father,we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou desire is for all of Mankind to turn to thou, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou desire is for all of Mankind to put aside a worry, and to put aside a concern, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou desire is for all of Mankind to be prudent with a spending, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou desire is for all of Mankind to put thou first in all that is thought, and in all that is spake, and in all that is done.

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

Amen.

A reflection on bodily image

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 is in possession of all thou facts.

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, and thou hath created all of Mankind to be equal within thou eyes.

We acknowledge that during thou life of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, that it was revealed that there is a need to focus on thou always and not on a self.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Scriptures teach all of Mankind about an appearance. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou desire is for all of Mankind to be content with an appearance that thou hath bestowed upon each and every one of us. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou desire is for all of Mankind to not be concerned with an appearance that is outward but to be concerned with a matter that is close to a heart. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou desire is for all of Mankind to put aside a concern that relates to an appearance that is outward, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou desire is for a self to turn to thou always.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect upon what is described as a concern related to a bodily image, and a concern related to a bodily image is one that is described in the media, and a concern related to a bodily image is one that is to do with a size. We are able to see in a way that is clear that many are happy with an appearance, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that some are less than happy with an appearance, and that a self who is less than happy with an appearance is a self who desires to be of size that can be described as slim, or of a size that can be described as thin.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before a health professional, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before an educationalist, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before the media, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before a parent, and the opportunities we ask thou to provide before many are ones that will allow a ground that is common to be found whereby all are helped to see a way forward in a way that is clear in coming to terms with a concern of size.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide all of Mankind in a life that is led daily. We hope and we pray that a self will turn to thou always, and we hope and we pray that a self will focus on thou, and not on a self.

Heavenly Father, we are thankful that thou hath created all of Mankind to be of an appearance that is, and should be, acceptable to all, and we ask thou to guide a self to accept an appearance of a self, and we ask thou to guide a self who feels somewhat less than satisfied with an appearance that is outward 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 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, that governs all who are of thou world that we live in, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.


A reflection on the use of cosmetic surgery

Reflections for the day

1 Samuel 16:7

 But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on 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.

What I am in God’s sight is what I am. No more; no less.

St Francis of Assisi

A reflection on the use of cosmetic surgery

Heavenly Father,

Thou art almighty, and thou art most powerful, and we praise thou name for thou power, and we praise thou name 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 is in possession of all thou facts.

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 created all of Mankind to be born with a particular appearance, and thou created all of Mankind to be born with a particular shape, and thou created all of Mankind to be born with a particular colour, and thou created all of Mankind to be born with a particular size, and thou hath created all of Mankind to be equal within 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 is not bound by words, and we acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by time, 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 overspills into a relationship, and we acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind enables all of Mankind to love thou neighbour, in thou way that thou Son, our Lord Jesus Christ loves us all.

Heavenly Father, thou sent thou beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, into thou world to die for all of Mankind upon a cross in order to redeem all of Mankind from all sins, and in order to show all of Mankind thou way to thou.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that during thou life of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ,that it was revealed that there is a need to focus on thou always, and not on a self.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Scriptures teach all of Mankind much about an appearance. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou desire is for all of Mankind to be content with an appearance that thou hath bestowed upon a self. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou desire is for all of Mankind to not have a concern with an appearance that is outward, and thou desire is for all of Mankind to be concerned with a matter that is close to a heart of a self, and to another. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou desire is for all of Mankind to put aside a concern about an appearance that is outward, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou desire is for all of Mankind to turn to thou always.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect upon the nature of cosmetic surgery. We are able to see in a way that is clear that much is said in the media about an appearance that is outward, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that much is depicted in the media about an appearance that is outward, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that much is said in the media about cosmetic surgery, and that much is said in the media about a danger that relates to a procedure known as cosmetic surgery. We are able to see in a way that is clear that some are influenced by what is seen in the media, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that what is shown in the media is done to persuade a self to have an appearance that is acceptable. We are able to see in a way that is clear that some are concerned that a look is not acceptable, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that a concern is due, at times, to what is said by another.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide all of Mankind in a life that is led daily, and we ask thou to guide a self to bring to thou presence a worry, and a concern.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before many to reflect carefully upon a need to be healthy always. We are able to see in a way that is clear that being healthy is desirable for all of Mankind. We are able to see in a way that is clear that for some the need for cosmetic surgery is one that is not necessary.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to grant a self  the grace to accept with a serenity the things that cannot be changed, and a courage to change the things that should be changed, and a wisdom to distinguish the one from another.

Heavenly Father, we are thankful thou hath created all of Mankind in a way that is loving, in terms of bestowing upon all of Mankind an appearance that is fitting for a self, and we ask thou to guide a self to accept an appearance of a self.

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 lives within Man, and who dwells amongst Man, and who advocates for Man, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.
