A Christmas Prayer 2012

A Christmas Prayer
by Robert Louis Stevenson

Loving Father,
Help us remember the birth of Jesus,
that we may share in the song of the angels,
the gladness of the shepherds,
and worship of the wise men.

Close the door of hate
and open the door of love all over the world.
Let kindness come with every gift
and good desires with every greeting.
Deliver us from evil by the blessing
which Christ brings,
and teach us to be merry with clear hearts.

May the Christmas morning
make us happy to be thy children,
and Christmas evening bring us to our beds
with grateful thoughts,
forgiving and forgiven,
for Jesus' sake.

Pray for World Peace 21 December 2012

As we enter the 21st December 2012, let us all spend a quiet time in prayer and meditation reflecting and praying for God's peace to come upon our World, our Universe and upon all of humanity. 

Allow the flow of your love and God’s love to flow through your heart out into the universe directing it with your pure intentions to change and create a new loving and peaceful world for everyone to live in.

Call upon our beloved Creator and all of His angels of light to be with humanity and to bless our world as we enter a new beginning.

Thank you!

God bless you all!

A Prayer for the Newton, Connecticut Community Affected by School Shooting.

"The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those who are crushed in spirit."Psalm 34:18

My thoughts and prayers are with everyone who has been affected by this terrible tragedy.  May this prayer be of some comfort to you and please know and believe that God's love and compassion is with you all and with your loved ones.

Dear Lord,

Please help me in this time of loss and overwhelming grief. I don't understand why my life is filled with this pain and heartache. But I turn my eyes to you as I seek to find the strength to trust in your faithfulness. I will wait on you and not despair; I will quietly wait for your salvation. My heart is crushed, but I know that you will not abandon me forever. Please show me your compassion, Lord. Help me through the pain so that I will hope in you again. I believe this promise in your Word to send me fresh mercy each day. Though I can't see past today, I trust your great love will never fail me.
