A reflection on the reign of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second

Reflections for the day

Psalm 8

Lord, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!

You have set your glory

 in the heavens.

Psalm 22:27-28

All the ends of the earth shall remember

and turn to the Lord,
and all the families of the nations
shall worship before you.
 For kingship belongs to the Lord,
and he rules over the nations.

As a people of faith, we know that prayer is a powerful instrument. And as one Nation under God, we know that many times our most powerful tool is prayer.

A reflection on the reign of Her Majesty  Queen Elizabeth the Second

Heavenly Father,

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

Heavenly Father, 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, we acknowledge that thou bestowed upon thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, the title Wonderful Counsellor. We acknowledge that thou, and thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, are at one with thou Holy Spirit. We acknowledge that thou, and thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is thou source of all wisdom, and is thou source for all counsel, and we acknowledge that thou, and thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, stand supreme above all.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we desire to hear thou voice, and it is at this time we desire that thou can guide all of Mankind with thou wisdom, and with thou counsel, and we desire that thou can guide a self to remain on thou path which is a path that is straight, and which is a path that is narrow, and which is a path that leads toward thou light which is eternal.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou hath a majesty, and we acknowledge that thou hath a mightiness, and that all thou mightiness is there for all of Mankind, if all of Mankind is able to turn to thou in one accord at all times.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that all of Mankind are able to turn to thou in praise, and we hope and we pray that a self is able to turn to thou in thankfulness, and we hope and we pray that a self is able to see in a way that is clear that thou can provide an opportunity before all who pray to thouself, and we hope and we pray that all of Mankind is able to see in a way that is clear that thou hath bestowed upon all of Mankind a freedom of will.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we uphold to thou the works that are good of Her Royal Highness, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second, and it is at this time we reflect carefully upon the nature of a reign, which is one that hath endured a period of sixty years. We acknowledge that the reign of Her Royal Highness, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second has been one that has been described as dignified, and we acknowledge that the reign of Her Royal Highness, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second, has been one that has been described as diligent, and we acknowledge that the reign of Her Royal Highness, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second, has been one that has been described as one that is dutiful to thou, and is one that has been described as one that is dutiful to her subjects. We ask that thou bless Her Royal Highness, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second, and we ask thou to bless the Royal Family. We ask that thou grant Her Royal Highness, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second, wisdom always, and we ask thou grant Her Royal Highness, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second, to be able to perceive, and to be able to discern, all that is desirous of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, at all times.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide all of Mankind to perceive, and to discern,thou word which is of thouself.We ask thou to gudie a self to gain a wisdom from thou word which is of thouself, and we ask thou to guide a self to gain a stability from thou word which is of thouself, and we ask thou to guide a self to gain a peace of mind from thou word which is of thouself.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou world that we live in is thou world that can be described as one that is temporal, and that to be thou obedient servant will mean that, at times, a self will need to turn a back on what is described as a world that is secular, and that in order to do so requires a self to be faithful to thou. We are able to see in a way that is clear that in order to be obedient to thou means that a self will need to have a courage, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that in order to be obedient to thou means  a self will need to be dignified, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that by thou knowledge that there is a protection of a self in terms of a comment that is made, and in terms of a word that is passed, by another to a self.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that all of Mankind is able to see in a way that is clear that thou art Our Heavenly Father who is faithful to all of Mankind, and we hope and we pray that all of Mankind is able to see in a way that is clear that thou art Our Heavenly Father who has a wisdom, and we hope and we pray that all of Mankind is able to see in a way that is clear that thou art Our Heavenly Father who is a counsellor for all of Mankind, and we hope and we pray that all of Mankind is able to see in a way that is clear that thou art able to guide all of Mankind, if a self turns to thou in prayer.

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 will always be, the most supreme, and the most absolute power and being, that reigns over thou world that we live in, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

A reflection on Thou Trinity

Reflections of the day

Matthew 28:19

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

2 Corinthians 13:14

 May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.

It is not possible to engage in the direct apostolate without being a soul of prayer. We must be aware of oneness with Christ, as he was aware of oneness with his Father. Our activity is truly apostolic only insofar as we permit him to work in us and through us with his power, with his desire, with his love.

MOTHER TERESA,

 



A reflection on The Trinity

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 art Our Heavenly Father who is loving, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who is compassionate, and thou loves each and every one of us. We acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that is all encompassing, and we acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by words, and we acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by time, and we acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by energy. We acknowledge that thou love 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 overspills into a relationship, and we acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that enables all of  Mankind to love thou neighbour, in thou way that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, loves us all.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect upon thou Trinity. We acknowledge thou as one Father, and we acknowledge thou as eternally existent in three persons, as thou Father, as thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and as thou Holy Spirit. We acknowledge that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is thou manifest in the flesh, and we acknowledge thou intention that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, came into thou world to redeem all of Mankind from all sins, and in order to show all of Mankind thou way to thou. We acknowledge that thou, and thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is thou source of all wisdom, and is thou source of all counsel, and we acknowledge that thou, and thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, stands supreme above all. We acknowledge that thou Holy Spirit enables all of Mankind to live a life that can be described as one that thou desires for all of Mankind, and we acknowledge that thou Holy Spirit enables all of Mankind to witness thou word that is of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, and we acknowledge that thou Holy Spirit enables all of Mankind to work in thou name of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou Trinity is one that is described as central to a faith in thouself, Our Heavenly Father, and in thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and in thou Holy Spirit. We acknowledge that a faith in thouself is one that worships thou in the presence of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and that a faith in thouself is one that worships thou in the presence of thou Holy Spirit, and we acknowledge that the presence of thou Holy Spirit is one that lives within many, and we acknowledge that the presence of thou Holy Spirit is one that dwells amongst many, and we acknowledge that the presence of thou Holy Spirit is one that advocates for many.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou desires all of Mankind to follow thou example of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou desires all of Mankind to turn to thou always, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou desires all of Mankind to hath a relationship with thou, and that in order for all of Mankind to hath a relationship with thou there is a need to say sorry for the error of a way, and there is a need to repent.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou relationship with thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and we acknowledge that thou relationship with thou Holy Spirit is one that reveals a relationship that is equal, and is one that is of a mutuality. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou desires all of Mankind to relate to one and another in much the same way. We hope and we pray that all of Mankind will reflect carefully upon thou nature of thou Trinity, and we hope and we pray that a self will look inward and make the changes that are necessary in a life that is led by a self.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that there is much about thou Trinity that we do not understand, and we acknowledge that there is much about thou Trinity that needs to be accepted in faith. We ask thou to guide all of Mankind in a life that is led daily, and we ask thou to guide a self to turn to thou always, and we ask thou to guide a self to emulate thou in all relationships, and we ask thou to guide a self to remain steadfast in a faith of 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, in order to redeem all of Mankind from all sins, and to show 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 thou Church as thou family

Reflections of the day

1 Peter 2 4-10

As you come to him, the living Stone —rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him— you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For in Scripture it says:

“See, I lay a stone in Zion,
a chosen and precious cornerstone,
and the one who trusts in him
will never be put to shame.”

 Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe,

“The stone the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone,”

and,

“A stone that causes people to stumble
and a rock that makes them fall.”

They stumble because they disobey the message—which is also what they were destined for.

But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.

So when we sing, ‘Draw me nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,’ we are not thinking of the nearness of place, but of the nearness of relationship. It is for increasing degrees of awareness that we pray, for a more perfect consciousness of the divine Presence. We need never shout across the spaces to an absent God. He is nearer than our own soul, closer than our most secret thoughts. –A.W. Tozer

A reflection on thou Church as thou family

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 loves thou world that we live in, and thou revealed to all of Mankind thou love for thou world that we live in by sending into thou world that we live in thou beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for all of Mankind in order to redeem 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 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 in thou eyes. Thou hath created all of Mankind for a purpose, and the purpose thou hath created all of Mankind for is to have a relationship, and thou hath created all of Mankind to have a relationship with thou, and thou hath created all of Mankind to have a relationship with another.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect upon the nature of thou Church as thou family. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou art intimately concerned with all relationships. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou concern is how all of Mankind relate to all others.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Church cannot belong to what is described as a culture. We acknowledge that thou desire is for all of Mankind to be at one with thou, and we acknowledge that thou desire is for all of Mankind to be at one with each other. We acknowledge that thou desire is for all of Mankind to listen to another, and we acknowledge that thou desire is for all of Mankind to learn from another, and we acknowledge that thou desire is for all of Mankind to love thou, and we acknowledge that thou desire is for all of Mankind to love another, and we acknowledge that thou desire is for all of Mankind to turn to thou always.

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 overcome a prejudice of another.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou desire is for thou Church to be one that is drawn from every nation, and that thou desire is for thou Church to be one that is drawn from every tribe, and that thou desire is for thou Church to be one that is drawn from every people, and that thou desire is for thou Church to be one that is drawn from every language. We hope and we pray that all of Mankind will reflect carefully upon thou desire, and we hope and we pray that a self will draw closer to thou, and we hope and we pray that a self will draw closer to another.

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 is 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 needs of a family

Reflections for the day

Philippians 4:6-7

 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:19

 And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

We lean to our own understanding, or we bank on service and do away with prayer, and consequently by succeeding in the external we fail in the eternal, because in the eternal we succeed only by prevailing prayer. –Oswald Chambers

A reflection on the needs of a family

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 ackonwledge 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 ackonwledge 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 loved thou world that we live in so very much that thou sent into thou world that we live in thou beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for all of Mankind to redeem 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 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, and thou hath created all of Mankind to be equal in thou eyes. Thou hath created all of Mankind for a purpose, and thou purpose thou hath created all of Mankind for is to have a relationship, and thou hath created all of Mankind to hath a relationship with thou, and thou hath created all of Mankind to have a relationship with another.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou art intimately concerned with all relationships. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou concern is for a family, and thou concern is for a friend of a self, and thou concern is for a structure of thou society. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou concern is how all of Mankind relate to each other.

Heavenly Father, we are thankful that thou holds in existence thou people and thou nations, whether or not there is an acknowledgement of thou, We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, welcomed all thou children, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, taught all of Mankind to be patient with another, and taught all of Mankind to be kind to another, and taught all of Mankind to be gentle toward another, and taught all of Mankind to love another in thou way that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ loves us all. We are able to see in a way that is clear that all thou children must be placed in a manner, and in a way that is safe, and is loving, within what is described as a family unit.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect carefully upon the needs of a family. We acknowledge that many are able to see in a way that is clear matters that relate to an upbringing of a child, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that many are able to seek an advice about an upbringing of a child, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that for some there is a difficulty which relates to an upbringing of a child, and a difficulty is one, that at times, relates to those who can be  described as new parents, and a difficulty is one, that at times, relates to a self who is unable to see a way forward in a way that is clear that an advice must be sought in an upbringing of a child.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that there is much said in the media about a seeking of advice for an upbringing of a child. We ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before many to enable a self who needs advice for an upbringing of a child to be able to access an advice that is desired for an upbringing of a child. We hope and we pray that a self will make the right choice in an upbringing of a child, and we hope and we pray that a self will turn to thou always.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide all of Mankind in a life that is one that is led daily, and we ask thou to guide a self to turn to thou always, and we ask thou to guide a self 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, 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 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.

Humble Service in the Body of Christ

“I never prayed sincerely and earnestly for anything but it came at some time; no matter at how distant a day, somehow, in some shape, probably the least I would have devised, it came.” Adoniram Judson

A reflection on honesty

Heavenly Father,

Thou art Our Heavenly Father who is loving, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who is compassionate. Thou hath sent into thou world thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in order to redeem all of Mankind from all sins, and in order to show all of Mankind thou way to thou. Thou art almighty, and thou art most powerful, and we praise thou for thou power, and we praise thou for thou mightiness.

Heavenly Father, thou hath created 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 Our Heavenly Father who sees all, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who knows all, and thou art in possession of all thou facts.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou loves each and every one of us, and 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 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 thou love for all of Mankind is one that overspills into a relationship, and we acknowledge thou love for all of Mankind is one that enables all of Mankind to love thou neighbour, in thou way that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ loves us all.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect upon the nature of honesty. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, lived a life that is described as one that is honest, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, lived a life that is described as one that was obedient to thou. We acknowledge that thou desire is for all of Mankind to live a life that is honest, and we acknowledge that thou desire is for all of Mankind to live a life that is obedient to thou always.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that if a self is less than honest there is a difficulty, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that a difficulty is one that, at times, relates to a family, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that a difficulty is one that, at times, relates to a friend, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that a difficulty is one that, at times, relates to a work colleague. We are able to see in a way that is clear that if a self is less than honest in a word that is passed, and if a self is less than honest in a comment that is made, and if a self is less than honest in a deed, a self will feel subjected to a pain. We are able to see in a way that is clear that if a self is less than honest there will be a breakdown in a relationship, and if a self is less than honest there will be a separation from thou, always.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we ask thou to guide all of Mankind in a life that is one that is led daily, and we ask thou to guide a self to reflect thou truth that is of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, a truth in all that is said,  and we ask thou to guide a self to reflect thou truth that is of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, a truth in all that is done always. We acknowledge that in order to be truthful in all that is said, and in order to be truthful in all that is done, that there is a need to focus on thou, always.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide a self to remain silent at a time that is necessary, and we ask thou to guide a self to choose a word carefully at all times.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that there is much said in the media about the nature of honesty, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that all of Mankind do experience a situation where a self is less than honest, and that, at times, there is what is described as a half-truth spoken, and that, at times, there is what is described as an omission of a truth spoken.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that a self will reflect upon a need to be honest always, and we hope and we pray that a self will turn to thou always, and we hope and we pray that a self will say sorry for the error of a way, and we hope and we pray that a self will make the changes in a life that is necessary, in order to show a repentance.

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 Our Saviour and who is Our Redeemer, 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 homeless

Reflections for the day

Philippians 4:19

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


Matthew 6:25-34

Do Not Worry

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

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

A reflection on the homeless

Heavenly Father,

Thou art the creator of thou world and all that is in it, and thou hath created all things known to Man, and all things unseen by Man. Thou created us to be born with a particular appearance, thou created us to be born with a particular shape, thou created us to be born with a particular colour, and thou created us to be born with a particular size. Thou created all Man to be equal in thou eyes.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou loves each and every one of us, and we acknowledge that thou love is one that is all encompassing, and we acknowledge that thou love is one that enables us to love thou with all our heart, with all our soul, with all our mind and with all our strength. We acknowledge that there art no words to describe thou love for Man, and we acknowledge that thou love for Man is one that is not bound by words, is one that is not bound by time, and is one that is not bound by energy. We acknowledge that thou love for Man is one that over-spills into our relationships, and is a love that enables us to love thou neighbour.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Amen.


A reflection on prohibitive drugs

Reflections for the day

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honour God with your bodies.

1 Corinthians 15:33

Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.”

 

“Prayer breaks all bars, dissolves all chains, opens all prisons, and widens all straits by which God’s saints have been held.”  E. M. Bounds

A reflection on the use of prohibitive drugs

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 with all of a soul, and with all of a mind,and with all of a strength.Thou love for Mankind is one that overspills into a relationship, and thou love for Mankind is one that allows all to love thou neighbour.

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 hath created Mankind  for a purpose, and that purpose is one of having relationships, and that a relationship is one that thou desires Mankind to have with thou, and for Mankind to have with another. We acknowledge that thou creation is one that is of thou dominion, and we acknowledge that thou desires all to take care of a body, and that thou desires all to turn to thou always.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect upon the use of drugs. We are able to see in a way that is clear that the use of drugs by some is one that can cause a difficulty, and that a difficulty can relate to some who use what is described as a drug that  is prohibitive, and a difficulty will relate to a consequence of the use of a drug that is prohibitive. We are able to see in a way that is clear that  drugs that are prohibitive are ones that cause what is described as a state of mind that will be altered, and that those drugs that are prohibitive are ones that are used for purposes in what is described as a social context, and those drugs that are prohibitive are ones that are used for purposes in order to escape from what is termed as a reality. We are able to see in a way that is clear that for some there is a need to use a drugs that is prohibitive longterm, and we are able to see in a way that us clear that the use of a drug which is prohibited is harmful to a body, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that the use of these drugs are ones that can cause a danger, and that danger can relate to the use of a car, and that danger can relate to the use of machinery.We are able to see in a way that is clear that the use of a drug that is prohibitive can often lead some into an area of difficulty, and an area of difficulty is one that relates to what is described as concealing an issue from another, and an area of difficulty is one of lying, and an area of difficulty is one of disobedience, and an area of difficulty is one of stealing, and an area of difficulty is one of violence, and an area of difficulty is one of a failure to do a job or to do school work.

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

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we ask thou to guide Mankind in a daily life, and we ask thou to help many to discern right from wrong, and we ask thou to help many to resist a temptation that can be described as one that is less than desirable, and can be described as one that is less than acceptable.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that many will reflect carefully upon the use of drugs that are described as prohibitive, and we hope and we pray that many will be able to see in a way that is clear the need to have sobriety, and the need to have a self-control. We ask that thou can place a number of opportunities before many to address the issues that relate to what is described as an undue influence, and this undue influence is one that manifests itself in the media, and this undue influence is one that manifests itself in music, and this undue influence is one that manifests itself in films, and this undue influence is one that manifests itself on the internet.

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 who is, and who was, and who will always be, the most supreme, and the most absolute power, and being, that governs all who are of this world that we live in, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.


A reflection on human rights

Reflections for the day

Proverbs 14:31

 Whoever oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honours God.

Proverbs 31:8-9

Open your mouth for the mute,
for the rights of all who are destitute.
Open your mouth, judge righteously,
defend the rights of the poor and needy.

 

 

The LORD is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth.


A reflection on human rights

Heavenly Father,

Thou art the creator of thou world and all that is in it, and thou hath created all things known to Man, and all things unseen by Man. Thou created Man to be born with a particular appearance,thou created Man to be born with a particular shape, thou created Man to be born with a particular colour, and thou created Man to be born with a particular size. Thou created all Man to be equal in thou eyes.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou loves each and every one of us, and we acknowledge that thou love is one that is all encompassing, and we acknowledge that thou love is one that enables us to love thou with all our heart, with all our soul, with all our mind and with all our strength. We acknowledge that there art no words to describe thou love for Man, and we acknowledge that thou love for Man is one that is not bound by words, is one that is not bound by time, and is one that is not bound by energy. We acknowledge that thou love for Man is one that over-spills into our relationships and enables us to love thou neighbour.

Heavenly Father, thou art almighty and thou art most powerful. Thou art an all-knowing Father and thou art an all seeing Father, and thou have possession of all thou facts. We acknowledge that thou purpose for Man is one to draw closer to thou, and we acknowledge that thou purpose for Man is to live our lives like that of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou world was created by thou as a world that was just, as a world that was right, and as a world that was in perfect harmony.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see that in Ancient Times there were many that rebelled against thou, and we are able to see that much of what is described in thou Scriptures concerns justice, and much of what is described in thou Scriptures concerns the treatment of others. We acknowledge that thou Scriptures teach Man about discrimination, and we acknowledge that thou Scriptures teach Man that thou desire is for Man to treat others alike with a due regard to race, and with a due regard to gender, and with a due regard to cultural background, and with a due regard to social standing. We are able to see that thou values and thou sense of justice prevailed through the law and thou  commandments of thou Prophets.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we desire Man to reflect carefully upon what is described as an abuse of human rights. We are able to see that there has been much said in the media about what is described as an abuse of human rights, and there has been much said in the media about those who have been described as suffering at the hands of others. Heavenly Father, it is at this time we uphold to thou in prayer Abdulhadi al-Khawaja, and it is at this time we uphold to thou in prayer Yulia Tymoshenko. We ask that thou can place opportunities before many to address the issues of which we are concerned about, and we hope and we pray that Man will reflect carefully upon the error of a way and say sorry for an error of a way, and make the changes in a life which are necessary.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we uphold to thou the good works of Amnesty International and we ask thou to bless their work, and we ask thou to place opportunities before many to enable justice, to enable fairness, to enable freedom and to enable truth to prevail always.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that Our Lord Jesus Christ died for us in order for us to find the way to thou. We acknowledge that Our Lord Jesus Christ suffered for us in order for us to understand the nature of suffering. We are able to see that for many suffering is something that they would prefer not to endure, and we are able to see that for some of us we can place all our worries and concerns into thou presence, and we are able to see that for all thou is there for Man always.

Heavenly Father, all things are possible through thou if there is a  faith and if there is an understanding of thou. Heavenly Father, we know that many events happen in our lives and that there is a divine purpose for these events to happen, and we know that many of the events that happen do so in thou own good time. Heavenly Father, we ask that we can be guided always in our daily life, we ask that thou can lead us towards thou eternal light.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to accept these words in thou name of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and we ask thou to accept these words in thou name of thou Holy Spirit, who lives within us, who dwells amongst us and who advocates for us, 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.
