December 26, Today’s thought – A Prayer

dec 26-ipad 001I must have been very, very good this year.
My Christmas gift from son, Dan and his family.

Good Morning

Ephesians 3:14-19
For this cause I bow my knees
unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory,
to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye,
being rooted and grounded in love,
May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth,
and length, and depth, and height;
And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge,
that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

A classic Devotional from Henry Van Dyke

The day of joy returns, Father in Heaven,
and crowns another year with peace and goodwill.
Help us rightly to remember the firth of Jesus,
that we may share in the song of the angels,
the gladness of the shepherds,
and the worship of the wise men.
Close the doors of hate, and
open the doors 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 that Christ brings,
and teach us to be merry with clean hearts.
May the Christmas morning make us
happy to be thy children,
and the Christmas evening bring us to our bed
with grateful thoughts, forgiving and forgiven,
for Jesus’ sake.
Amen.

May this be our prayer . . . Every Day
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie

  1. What a lovely prayer Leslie and enjoy your ipad mini! 🙂

    • Thank you the prayer seems to cover most things important.
      I confess to being a bit intimidated wit the ipad. It’s a whole new language and way of working with a ‘computer’.
