Desiderata
Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be critical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be careful. Strive to be happy.

It's Monday :)

God our Savior,
hear our morning prayer:
help us to follow the light
and live the truth.
In you, we have been born again
as sons and daughters of light:
may we be your witnesses before all the world.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. AMEN.

Tuesday morning ~ the end of winter is fierce at the moment, giving us cold, wet and dreary days; but we know spring is around the corner, and the weather will do a complete turnaround :)

Heavenly Father, You have given us the ability to work with minds and hands. You have fashioned the structures of human society. Through these we care for one another by providing the products and services that fill human life with the temporal blessings You want Your creatures to enjoy. You have called us to serve all people with the labors of our thinking and our doing. We thank You for the satisfaction You have given us in our work. Preserve us from every temptation to use our lives for selfish purposes. Provide a taste of Your love and goodness to those who enjoy the fruits of our labor and, above all, let our lives reflect the forgiveness and joy we possess through Jesus' merit. Amen.

It is Tuesday evening and I am following on from the last Prayer I posted this morning :)

Lord, You came into this earth as our friend and companion, and You continue to sweeten our lives with the gift of human friendship. Your sacrifice for us enables us to forgive friends and to ask for forgiveness, to give strength and to seek strength from them. Strengthen our present friendships and open us to new relationships, in which we may convey Your love, care, and concern to others. Give us discernment to know how to support those we love in troubled times and courage to stand by them in every difficulty. Bless our friends this day with Your presence, support, and favor, and bring us into the circle of friends and family that You gather around Yourself in eternity through Jesus, Your Son. Amen.

Wednesday morning and running late :)

We thank You, Lord, for the gift of living in this nation and for blessings You shower on all its citizens. Guide us as we fulfill the duties of citizenship. Let us carry out our civic obligations with gratitude toward You and joy at the privilege of serving others through participation in community and national life. Let us see all kinds of public service - payment of taxes, efforts for local and national improvement, support for responsible political parties and noble causes - as opportunities to give You praise and to meet the needs of others. Grant us wisdom to repent of unwise decisions in the political sphere and discernment to make proper contributions to the common welfare. In Jesus' name, who redeemed us by His cross. Amen.

This is a very appropriate Prayer to be posting today!!

Thursday Morning ~ this week is flying by :)

You gather Your faithful people and Your Word in the community of congregation, Lord. We thank You today for the gift of our congregation and for Your presence and working in our midst. Give all its members wisdom insight, joy and humility, the ability to operate with and support one another. Let the church in our place grow through the growth of Your Word among us, as You strengthen us through the daily renewal of our Baptism, the hearing and sharing of Your Word, the regular reception of absolution and the Lord's Supper. Give us through our congregation a foretaste of the feast to come through Jesus' redemption. Amen.

Indeed HE does ~ I am always amazed at how things really work, even though I know we should just expect the miracles of life :)

For the riches and fullness of our lives we praise You, O Lord. Your gift of life is precious, and even when surrounded by evils of all kinds, we acknowledge Your goodness to us. This goodness we have experienced in the unbounded mercy You showed us in Your dying and rising for us. We encounter it in the signs of Your presence and care in even the tiniest blessings of daily life. Forgive us our all too frequent failures to recognize Your gift of life in all its many facets. Forgive us for tarnishing the lives of others through thoughtless actions and the hurts we cause them. Instead, make us agents of Your enrichment of their lives and witnesses to Your salvation. Amen.

Saturday morning and it is still raining down here ~ we might be going to have a scorcher of a summer this year and need all this water stored in our dams :)

Dear Savior, help me remember as I begin my weekend activities. Whether work or leisure will engage me today, keep my thoughts and actions centered on You. Make it a day of contentment for me, no matter if the activities I face are pleasant or tedious. Keep me through the Holy Spirit from willful sins and from those sins I do not even realize I am committing. Help me be a positive influence in others' lives as I go my way. Let my inner rejoicing in Your salvation be evident in all I say and do so that I bring glory and not shame to Your most holy name. Amen.

How do you know what another may have been given and know? You cannot see inside of their heart or soul, or the workings of God, particularly when you don't accept Him. Your judgments are "objective" either.
Excuse me? How do you know what I believe?

Spare me your indifference to religious arrogance.

And now the end of the week :)

My loving God, I thank You for bringing me safely to another day of worship. How I desire to praise You with a pure heart and right spirit! To that end, I again ask Your forgiveness for all my sins and renewing of my faith. As I speak to You today, fill my heart with true praise and thankfulness for all You have done for me. Lead me to appreciate more fully the blessings of worshiping with my fellow Christians. Thank You for the opportunity to pray and study Your Word with other believers. Make me a faithful witness in my congregation and my family so that others will see me leaning only on You, who saved me in Jesus Christ. Amen.

You have gathered the solitary into families, O Lord. We thank You for the gift of earthly families and for the joys You have given us in and through our family. We thank You also for Your presence in the midst of the troubles that sometimes plague and disrupt the peace of family life. Grant us the ability to love family members both because of and in spite of what we do for and with each other. Give us insight to know how best to show them Your love and care to share with them the peace and joy You give. Keep us all ever in Your sight and hold us safely in Your hand, that we may belong to You and be joined in everlasting life through the merits of Jesus Christ. Amen
