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 Thou Sanctity of Life (one of several)

Reflections of 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 Thou Sanctity of Life (one of several)

Our 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 is eternal, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that endures. 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. 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. Thou love for all of Mankind is one that overspills into a relationship, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that enables all of Mankind to love thou neighbour, as thou Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, loves all of Mankind.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect upon the nature of thou Sanctity of Life. We are able to see in a way that is clear that much has been said in the media about a difficulty that is faced by some who are ill in a way that is described as terminal. We are able to see in a way that is clear that much has been said in the media about a difficulty that is faced by some who are ill in a way that is described as terminal when faced with what is described as a prospect of a life of a self that some would describe as one that is not fulfilling. We are able to see in a way that is clear that much has been said in the media about a difficulty that is faced by some who are ill in a way that is described as terminal, when some who are ill in a way that is described as terminal express a desire to end a life of a self.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that much has been said in the media about a difficulty that is faced by a parent of a child who is ill in a way that is described as terminal. We are able to see in a way that is clear that a parent, on an occasion, is required to make a decision about the future of a child who is ill in a way that is described as terminal. We are able to see in a way that is clear that much has been said in the media about a difficulty that is faced by many who are a professional of health who have a responsibility of care for some who are ill in a way that is described as terminal, and that a difficulty is one that relates to a decision that is required to be made about the future of a child who is ill in a way that is described as terminal.

Heavenly Father, the issue of which we are concerned about is the issue of thou Sanctity of Life. 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 of Mankind to be equal in thou eyes. We acknowledge that thou desire is for all of Mankind to turn toward thou, and we acknowledge that thou desire is for all of Mankind to place a worry, and to place a concern with thou.

Heavenly Father, 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 ones that may have happened for a reason, and we acknowledge that all things happen in thou own good time.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before some who are ill in a way that is described as terminal, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before some who are a parent of a child who is ill in a way that is described as terminal, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before many who are described as a professional of health who have a responsibility of care for some who are ill in a way that is described as terminal, and the opportunities we ask for thou to provide are ones where many are able to reflect upon the need to uphold thou Sanctity of Life.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide all of Mankind in a life that is daily of a self, and we ask thou to guide some to see a way forward in a way that is clear, in terms of perceiving, and in terms of discerning, the need to uphold thou Sanctity of Life, and we ask thou to guide some to be able to come to terms with a difficulty that is faced, and we ask thou to guide all of Mankind to place a worry, and to place a concern with 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 is thou way, and who is thou truth, and who is thou life, and who is thou way to thou, 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 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 forgiveness and reconciliation

Reflections for the day

1 John 2
My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.

1 John 1:9-11
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.  If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.

Acts 3:19

 “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.”


We must alter our lives in order to alter our hearts, for it is impossible to live one way and pray another. –William Law

A reflection on forgiveness and reconciliation

Heavenly Father,

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 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 enables thou love for all of Mankind to overspill 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 acknowledge that many find a difficulty to forgive another who has wronged a self. We are able to see in a way that is clear that for some it is difficult to let go of an anger, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that for some it is hard to forgive another when there is anger. We are able to see in a way that is clear that some desire to see a justice prevail, and that some see that to forgive a situation where a justice is meted may be seen by another as condoning an act. We are able to see in a way that is clear that some prefer a self who has offended, and a self who has caused an upset to not be forgiven. We are able to see in a way that is clear that some desire an outcome that can be described as an “eye for an eye” and a “tooth for a tooth.” We are able to see in a way that is clear that some find it difficult to forgive another who has offended, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there is an occasion where some are unable to come to terms with a forgiveness for another, if another has declined to proffer a sorrow for a word that has been spoke, or a deed that has been done.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that during thou ministry of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, that it was revealed that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, came into thou world to redeem all of Mankind from all sins, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that as a consequence a self is able to turn to thou, and a self is able to ask thou for a forgiveness for an error of a way. Thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, revealed to all upon the cross that a love will triumph over an evil by thou a word of forgiveness that was uttered from the cross for all who had condemned thou Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, and by a response of a promise in paradise to a thief who repented from the cross, who died alongside thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect upon an occasion in the Second World War when there was much destruction, and we reflect upon an occasion in the Second World War when there was a destruction of thou church of St Michaels of Coventry. We acknowledge there was a time of suffering, and we acknowledge that there was a time when many were killed. We acknowledge that at this time a man named Provost Howard inscribed upon a remnant of the altar of thou church of St Michaels, “Father, forgive.” We acknowledge that at a time that was later that thou Cathedral of Coventry was one that was constructed, and we acknowledge that thou Cathedral of Coventry was one that was constructed on the ruin of thou church of St Michaels.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we acknowledge the anniversary of 50 years of the consecration of thou Cathedral of Coventry. We acknowledge that a mission at a time of 50 years ago was one of reconciliation, and we acknowledge that a mission at a time of 50 years ago was of one to reconcile thou nation of The British Isles with thou nation of Germany.

Heavenly Father, we ask for thou blessing on the works that are good of thou Cathedral of Coventry, and we ask for thou blessing on its rededication as a memorial to a victim of war who is described as a civilian.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that the works that are good of thou Cathedral of Coventry are ones that have been adopted by thou churches and by another, and we acknowledge that the works that are good of thou Cathedral of Coventry are ones that have been adopted toward a working of peace in thou world.

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 perceive and to discern that thou desire is for all of Mankind to love thou neighbour, in thou way that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, loves us all. We ask thou to guide a self to understand that a self  who has offended a self, and a self who has caused an upset has a capacity for good. We hope and we pray that all of Mankind is able to reflect carefully upon the nature of forgiveness and we hope and we pray that all of Mankind is able to see a way forward in a way that is clear that by forgiving, a self is able to free a self from a feeling of anger, and that a self is are able to free a self from a feeling of bitterness, and that by forgiving, a self is able to provide an opportunity for a self to transform a life of a self, and that by thou power of forgiveness that a self is are able to draw nearer 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 all that hath been spake in thou name of thou Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, and we uphold all that hath been spake in thou name of thou Holy Spirit, who together with thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is thou Redeemer and thou Saviour for all of Mankind, 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 self-esteem

Reflections of the day

1 Samuel 16:7

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

1 Peter 3:3-4

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

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

Lady Maxwell

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

A reflection on self-esteem

Heavenly Father,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Amen.

A reflection on the 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 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 wealth

Reflections of the day

Matthew 6:24-25

“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.

“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?

1 Timothy 6:17-19

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. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.

We look upon prayer as a means of getting things for ourselves; The Bible idea of prayer is that we may get to know God Himself.

– Oswald Chambers


A reflection on wealth

Heavenly Father,

Thou art the creator of thou world that we live in, and thou hath created all things known to Mankind, and all things unseen by Mankind. Thou art a loving Father, and thou art a compassionate 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, we acknowledge that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, laid down a life for all, and that by doing so thou made to all Mankind what can be described as an ultimate sacrifice, and that thou sacrifice thou made for Mankind is one that reveals thou love for all, and thou love thou hath for Mankind is one that is there for each and every one of us, and is a love that is all encompassing, and is a love that is not bound by words, and is a love that is not bound by time, and is a love that is not bound by energy. Thou love thou hath 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 that thou hath for all is one that overspills into a relationship, and thou love that thou hath for all is one that allows Mankind to love thou neighbour as thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, loves us all.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou Scriptures reveal that during thou life of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, cared for thou poor, and that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, cared for thou needy, and that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, cared for thou vulnerable.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, revealed in thou Scriptures much about wealth. We acknowledge that wealth is a gift from thou, and is a gift that thou hath entrusted some to use to carry out thou work for another.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Scriptures reveal that thou desire is for Mankind to turn to thou always, and that thou desire is for Mankind to have a relationship with thou which is right, and that thou desire is for Mankind to have a relationship with another which is right. We are able to see in a way that is clear that a desire to be wealthy, and a desire to have possessions, beyond what is a need, will be one that will cause some to neglect thou, and will  be one that will cause some to neglect a family, and will be one that will cause some to neglect another. We acknowledge that a desire to serve thou, and a desire to serve wealth, is one that is not compatible.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we ask thou to guide Mankind in a daily life, and we ask thou to guide many to see that there is a to have a responsibility toward those who are poor, and toward those who are needy, and toward those who are vulnerable. We hope and we pray that those who are blessed with having a wealth that is beyond a need will reflect carefully upon a responsibility to share a wealth with those who are less than fortunate.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that what can be described as a preoccupation with wealth is one that is not desirable, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that in order to draw closer to thou, Mankind needs to turn a back on  a thought of wealth.

Heavenly Father, many desire to be thou obedient servant but  fall short in an expectation of thou, and many desire to lay down a life for thou but are reluctant at times, and many desire to be ready to do thou will but are rebellious at times.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we ask thou to guide many to emulate the life of St Lawrence, a man who spoke of thou poor and of thou needy as a treasure of thou Church. We hope and we pray that many will reflect upon the life of St Lawrence and are able to see in a way that is clear that thou art able to provide all our needs, and that our treasure is one that is of a life that is one that is eternal with 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, that governs over all who are of this world that we live in, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.
