Almighty God, Father of all mercies,
we your unworthy servants give you humble thanks
for all your goodness and loving-kindness
to us and to all whom you have made.
We bless you for our creation, preservation,
and all the blessings of this life;
but above all for your immeasurable love
in the redemption of the world by our Lord Jesus Christ;
for the means of grace, and for the hope of glory.
And, we pray, give us such an awareness of your mercies,
that with truly thankful hearts
we may show forth your praise,
not only with our lips, but in our lives,
by giving up our selves to your service,
and by walking before you
in holiness and righteousness all our days;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit,
be honor and glory throughout all ages. Amen.

  1. “Return, O Lord! How long? Have pity on your servants! Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days. Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us, and for as many years as we have seen evil. Let your work be shown to your servants, and your glorious power to their children. Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us; yes, establish the work of our hands!”
    (Psalms 90:13–17 ESV)

  2. “walking before you
    in holiness and righteousness all our days;
    through Jesus Christ our Lord,
    to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit,
    be honor and glory throughout all ages. Amen.” and amen

    was it the movie Patton where he says, “War is glorious?” well, no it isn’t, at least what can be won in an earthly war … but, perhaps the war that the Christian finds himself in is a glorious war – one whose end is already established and is a joyful end?
    Lord, give us focus and strength for our days here – we want to serve You, to contribute our lives as servants of Your plan

  3. Amen

  4. Holy holy holy are You! We run to You in the throne room. Holy are You merciful God!

This was after referring to me and some of my friends as scum of the earth along with other names I wouldn’t repeat here. I appealed on the basis of an almost lifelong friendship and that I not only respected him for holding well-reasoned views but that we had much more in common than not. He would have none of it. I grieve over a lost friendship as well as my part in the destruction.
