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

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

Heavenly Father,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Heavenly Father, I uphold all that thyself hath spake in thou name of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, and in thou name of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and in thou name of thou Holy Spirit, who lives within Man, and who dwells amongst Man, and who advocates for Man, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.


 

A reflection on conquering evil (one of several)

Reflections for the day

Ephesians 4:27

 and do not give the devil a foothold.

“The one concern of the devil is to keep Christians from praying.  He fears nothing from prayer less studies, prayer less work and prayer less religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at our wisdom, but he trembles when we pray.”  Samuel Chadwick


A reflection on conquering evil (one of several)

Heavenly Father,

Thou art a loving Father, and thou art a Holy Father. We acknowledge thou sent thou only Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, into thou world to save Mankind from all sins. We acknowledge that thou Scriptures teach Mankind that much of the ministry of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was one which can be described as a conflict with evil, and we acknowledge that thou Scriptures teach Mankind that the death of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and thou resurrection of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was one that glorified thou name, and was one that overcame evil.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou art most powerful, and we acknowledge that thou art present always, and we acknowledge that thou art Our Heavenly Father who knows all, and we acknowledge that thou art Our Heavenly Father who sees all, and we acknowledge that thou art in possession of all thou facts.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou Scriptures teach Mankind that thou art all that is holy, and we acknowledge that thou Scriptures teach Mankind that Satan is the personification of all that is evil. We acknowledge that thou Scriptures teach Mankind that thou world that we live in is one that is tainted by what can be described as evil, and we acknowledge that thou Scriptures teach Mankind there is a  need to always remain vigilant, and a vigilance is one that can be described as one that is watchful of an influence that can be described as less than holy.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was tempted by Satan, and the temptation was one that came when thou Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, was in the wilderness, and the temptation was one that came when thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was faced with a difficulty, and a difficulty was one that was related to the environment, and a difficulty was one that was related to a state of the body which was one that was weakened through what can be described as prolonged fasting.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to help all at a time of difficulty when a body, and when a mind is weakened, and we ask thou to help many to turn to thou always, and we ask thou to help many to emulate thou life of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we acknowledge that some can be  tempted, and that a temptation is one that is often described as sin, and that a temptation is one that is seen by some as one that is acceptable.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide Mankind in a daily life, and we ask thou to help Mankind to recognise the error of a way, and we ask thou to guide many to turn to thou always, and we ask thou to guide many to say sorry for an error of a way, and we ask thou to guide many to make a change in a life that is necessary.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we are able to see in a way that is clear that there is much said in the media about the payment of taxes, and there is much said in the media about what is described as an avoidance of a payment of taxes. Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that many will reflect carefully upon the payment of taxes, and we hope and we pray that  thou art able to permit a number of opportunities to be  placed before some to pay a tax that is due.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we are able to see in a way that is clear that there is much said in the media about the internet, and that the issues that many are concerned about are ones that are described as an influence, and that influence is one that is seen as corrupt.

Heavenly Father, we ask that a number of opportunities are placed before many at the International Defence Studies in Estonia, and that many will reflect carefully upon the nature of an influence, and we hope and we pray that the right choices are made to safeguard a security, and we hope and we pray that the right choices are made to safeguard a child, and are made to safeguard a  young person, from all that is seen to be corrupt.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that Mankind will turn a back on evil, and we hope and we pray that many will turn to thou, and we hope and we pray that good will overcome evil.

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

Amen.

A reflection on the media

Reflections for the day

1 Corinthians 15:33

Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.”

1 Corinthians 6:18

 Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.

Luke 17:2

 It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were cast into the sea than that he should cause one of these little ones to sin.

“A man who is intimate with God will never be intimidated by men.”  Leonard Ravenhill




A reflection on the media

Heavenly Father,

We are able to see that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, welcomed thou children, and that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, taught Man to love and respect thou children. We are able to see that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, taught Man to treat thou children in a way that is fitting.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time that we are able to see that many of thou children are able to access the internet and use websites that can be described as ones that are inappropriate. We are able to see that many of our children are influenced by what they view on the internet and in the media. We are able to see that the influences thou children are faced with relate to attitudes of sex, relate to attitudes towards relationships, and relate to attitudes towards body image. We are able to see that it is necessary for thou children to be safeguarded against many of these influences.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that thou children can be safeguarded against an inappropriate use of the internet, we hope and we pray that thou children can be safeguarded against an inappropriate access to television, and we hope and we pray that thou children can be safeguarded  against an inappropriate access to DVDs and multi-media games.

Heavenly Father, there are many of us who are unable to come to terms with what we see on the internet and there are many of us who are unable to come to terms with what we see on the television. We hope and we  pray that providers of the internet and we hope and we pray that providers of television, are able to provide a solution to this at source.

Heavenly Father, thou art almighty, thou art most powerful and thou art the creator of all things known and unknown to Man. We hope and we pray that we can draw closer to thou in all aspects of our lives, and we ask that thou can guide us in our daily life always.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to thou all that has 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 us, who dwells amongst us and who advocates for us, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

A reflection on the sin of materialism

Reflections for the day

Luke 16:13-15

“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” The Pharisees, who loved money, heard all this and were sneering at Jesus. He said to them, “You are the ones who justify yourselves in the eyes of others, but God knows your hearts. What people value highly is detestable in God’s sight.

You cry over spilled champagne! Your complaints are not over the lack of necessities, but the abundance of benefits. You bellyache over the frills, not the basics. Over benefits not essentials. The source of your problem is your blessing. –Unknown

Any so-called material thing that you want is merely a symbol: you want it not for itself, but because it will content your spirit for the moment. –Mark Twain


A reflection on the sin of materialism

Heavenly Father,

We are able to see in a way that is clear that Mankind lives in your world which is a world that has been, and is, tainted by materialism. We are able to see in a way that is clear that materialism takes on a number of forms and the forms that it takes on can, and does, affect all. We are able to see in a way that is clear that much of what happens in a daily life is affected by a materialistic thought. We are able to see in a way that is clear that many thoughts are ones that can be, and are ones that are, affected by what is seen, and affected by what is heard in the media.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time during Lent we reflect upon the nature of materialism, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that this was a concern for your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, when a time was spent in the Wilderness. We are able to see in a way that is clear that during a time in the Wilderness that Satan tempted your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, with a thought which was one related to a materialistic thought of your world, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, rejected a temptation that was placed before your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that your people of your world of this day have an expectation, and we acknowledge that an expectation is one to do with a possession that is worldly. We acknowledge there is a difficulty for your children to take what can be described as a step back from all that is worldly and deny a need for a possessions that is worldly. We are able to see in a way that is clear that your children need a guidance and we are able to see in a way that is clear that a guidance is one that is often difficult to administer. We are able to see in a way that is clear that many of your children are led astray, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that many of your children are misguided.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that there are times when a value of a possession is demeaned, and we are able to see in a way that is clear there are occasions when there is a  purchase of goods which is unnecessary. We are able to see in a way that is clear that on an occasion this occurs when a brand that is new, and when a brand is marketed as new, and as exciting, is perceived, and is discerned by your children.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that Mankind can reflect carefully upon a purchase, and we hope and we pray that Mankind can see that a possession that is worldly is meaningless in the Kingdom of Heaven. We hope and we pray that Mankind will see the error of a way, and we hope and we pray that Mankind will make the changes necessary in a life so that Mankind is able to have a life that is eternal with you.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we are concerned with a number of changes that have been made by a budget, and it is at this time we are concerned that a number of changes will mean a downturn in the economy. We hope and we pray that the Government of this country is  able to see a  way forward in a way that is clear, and we hope and we pray that the Government will enable all to live a life that is one that can be described as one that is economically viable.

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

Heavenly Father, we uphold to yourself, Our Heavenly Father, all that has been said in the name of yourself, Our Heavenly Father, and in the name of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who together with your Holy Spirit, reigns on most high as the most supreme, and as the most absolute power, and being, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

A reflection on the exploitation of children

Reflections for the day

Philippians 4:6-7 

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

For hundreds of millions of us who believe in God, prayer is our bridge between Earth and Heaven, our way of opening our hearts to the Lord. Through this intimate relationship we find peace and guidance.

Nick Rahall


A reflection on the exploitation of children

Heavenly Father,

We are able to see that you are intimately concerned with our relationships. We are able to see that your concern is not just for our immediate families and friends but in the structure of society. We are able to see that your concern is how we relate to a great number of others simultaneously.

We thank you, Our Heavenly Father, that you hold in existence people and nations, whether or not they acknowledge or serve you.

We acknowledge that your Scriptures tell Man about the complexities of life, and we acknowledge that your Scriptures tell Man about the way people do not always remain in love or charity with their neighbours. Many of us are able to see that for some  lives are in turmoil, and it is at this time, Our Heavenly Father, we desire to uphold to you all children who have lives that are less fortunate than others.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see that your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, welcomed children, and we are able to see that your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, taught Man to be patient, and we are able to see that your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, taught Man to be kind, and we are able to see that your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, taught Man to be gentle towards children, and to love and to respect them. We are able to see that all children are best placed in a safe and loving family, and we are able to see that all children must be allowed to grow up in a way that is fitting.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see that many children around the world cannot live a life that is desirous of you. Some of these children do not have homes, some of these children lead lives that can be described as dangerous, and some of these children lead lives that words cannot describe. Many of these children lead lives that can only be described as exploited.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that Mankind will turn a back on many of the things that lead these children to lead the lives that they do. We hope and we pray that Mankind will turn towards you, and reflect carefully on all sins and repent.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that the children we are concerned about can be described as vulnerable. Heavenly Father, it is at this time we acknowledge the good works of the many children’s charities that help these children and we ask that you continue to place opportunities before these charities so that the issues of which we are concerned about can be addressed.

Heavenly Father, we thank you that you sent into your world your only begotten Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and that your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, died for Man to show Man the way to you.

Heavenly Father, your Son, Our Lord  Jesus Christ, died a death that has been described as agonising, and your Son, Our Lord  Jesus Christ, died a death that has been described as one of suffering. We ask you, in the name of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, to heal all children who can be described as exploited, and may they draw comfort and strength from your presence, and may they draw comfort and strength from your healing power.

Heavenly Father, we pray that your power and mightiness can be invoked in places where there are vulnerable children. We ask you to help Mankind to reflect carefully on the need to be more concerned for others, and we ask you to help Mankind to reflect carefully upon the need to love our neighbour.

Heavenly Father, you are almighty, and you are most powerful, and you are the creator of all things known and unknown to Man. We ask that we can draw closer to you in all aspects of our lives, we are thankful that we can seek comfort from you and we ask that we can seek guidance from you always.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to you now all that has been said in the name of yourself, Our Heavenly Father, and in the name of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, and in the name of your Holy Spirit, who together with your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, reigns on most high, and is the advocate for all who are of this world that we live in, now and always, for evermore. 

Amen.
