Scottish Charity No.  SC002953


Dear Lord,

Our world seems to be in such turmoil at the moment.  Every day we seem to wake up to more tragic news and it always seems to involve man’s inhumanity to man.  Forgive us Lord for all the hatred that is going on in the world.  We pray Lord that you enter the hearts of those with thoughts of crimes against others,  so that they may realise that what they are contemplating is evil and that they refrain from the path  they are following.  Teach them,  and us, that we must all love our neighbours just as your Son Jesus Christ has taught us.

We thank you Lord that in amongst the evil we are witnessing, we see love. We see a coming together of people in a shared hope.  A hope that one day there will be peace amongst nations.  We are also seeing in those people  a strength and resolution that evil will never win and that bravery,  care and compassion for others have triumphed.

We thank you Lord for our faith,  and for your great love for us all.

Amen.

Psalm 23 :

The Lord is my Shepherd ….  
THAT’S  RELATIONSHIP !

I shall not want   ….. 
THAT’S  SUPPLY !

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures  …. 
THAT’S  REST !

He leadeth me beside still waters  …. 
THAT’S   REFRESHMENT !

He restoreth my soul …
THAT’S HEALING !

He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness … 
THAT’S  GUIDANCE!

For His name sake ….  
THAT’S  PURPOSE!

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death  …
THAT’S  CHALLENGE!

I will fear no evil ….
THAT’S  ASSURANCE!

For thou art with me … 
THAT’S  FAITHFULNESS?

Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me …  
THAT’S  SHELTER!

Thou preparest  a table before me in the presence of mine enemies ….  
THAT’S HOPE !

Thou anointest my head with oil …  
THAT’S   CONSECRATION !

My cup runneth over  ….  
THAT’S ABUNDANCE  !

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life  ….
THAT’S   BLESSING !

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord …..  
THAT’S  SECURITY!

Forever  ….  THAT’S  ETERNITY !

Amen (so be it)
