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.”

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 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 religious tolerance

Reflections for the day

Matthew 8:8-10

 The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.
 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.

 When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.

“The man who mobilizes the Christian church to pray will make the greatest contribution to world evangelization in history.”  Andrew Murray


A reflection on religious tolerance

Heavenly Father,

Thou art the Creator of thou world that we live in and thou hath created all things known to Man, and thou hath created all things unseen by Man. We acknowledge that we are all individuals and we acknowledge that each and everyone one of us holds views, and for some of us our views are different, and for some of us our faith is different.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou loves each and every one of us.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see that some of us differ in an outlook on life, and we are able to see that some of us differ in a view, and we are able to see that despite a difference in a view there are some things we are able to share.

We are able to see that for some of us there is a belief in thou existence, and we are able to see that  some of us hath a need to worship thou. We are able to see that for some of us there are opportunities to see thou work in thou nature.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, taught us to learn and taught us to understand Mankind, and we are able to see that thou Son,Our Lord Jesus Christ, was able to speak of Man having positive qualities to offer. We are able to see that thou disciple Paul recognised thou work of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, as one that happens within another’s religion and culture.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we ask thou to guide us in our daily life, and it is at this time we ask thou to  help us to recognise that another is entitled to a belief that differs from a  belief that is held by a self.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see that we are all called to bring others to thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and we are able to see that for Mankind there are some difficulties in accepting thou exists, and we are able to see that for Mankind there are some difficulties in accepting thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is there for our salvation, and we are able to see that for Mankind there are some difficulties in accepting thou loves all of Mankind.

We are able to see that throughout history, events have occurred that can be described as shameful, and these events that have occurred have been perpetrated by Christians to people of other faiths. It is at this time, we uphold to thou in prayer thou people of Nigeria and we hope and we pray that thou people of Nigeria who are described as  Christians and we hope and we pray that thou people of Nigeria who are described as of the faith Islam can live together in peace and harmony.

Heavenly Father, we are concerned about the recent tragic event that has occurred in Toulouse. We are able to see that the Jewish Community are heartbroken and we are able to see that the Jewish Community are in need of our prayers. We are able to see that thou presence is one that is desired and we are able to see that thou guidance is one that is desired too.

Heavenly Father, there is much that happens in thou world that seems to make no sense and there is much that happens in thou world that can be described as evil. We are able to see that many of us would wish that evil is overcome and we are able to see that many of us would wish that violence ceased.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to thou the names of thou Rabbi, his children and the other child who died in such a tragic way and we ask thou to heal their families and friends. 

Heavenly Father, thou desires us to live in a way which avoids all that is not good in thou world. We ask thou to guide us in our daily life to stay on thou path which is a path that is straight and narrow toward thou eternal light. We ask thou to guide us to bring thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, to Mankind without a fear and without a prejudice, and without racism, and without a  judgement being proffered.

It is at this time we ask thou to place opportunities before the Government to reflect carefully upon the faith of Christianity and to reflect carefully upon  what it means to practice a faith of Christianity. We hope and we pray that our Government will address those situations in which Christians find themselves in at this present time and we hope and we pray that our Government comes to an understanding of our faith of Christianity.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to thou 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 is, who was, and who will always be the most supreme and most absolute power and being that governs all of this world that we live on, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.
