Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.
The most important thing we may do is pray for one another. We may speak of God, sing His name when we can, but prayer is something we can do not just for ourselves but for others. It is our chance to break bread in communion with our fellow man. For even if they know not that you are praying for them, to know that others may be praying for us is as much a comfort as an act of true compassion. Gods’ infinite grace and power are ultimately unfathomable to us, our brains and senses being too small to comprehend its full power. Yet, one of the best ways we may gain an insight into this is obviously through Scripture. In studying these, one may draw upon the vast accumulation of thousands of years of history, thought and worship. Scripture is our inheritance, our communal link along a lineage of salvation, brought to life often by the best of our Ministers and in their sermons. But also what of one’s immediate family? Here too, our ears and eyes should be open, for more recent links from those more advanced in years and spiritual development serve as both an inspiration and perhaps even a practical guide in the context of our modern lives.
Lord I wish to pray for all those around me, those who are doing Your work and those who need Your help. Grant salvation Lord, to all who have not yet found it, and grant compassion Lord, to all those who seek it under fear or danger. I pray for all these men and women, in the hope we may strengthen between us our spiritual bonds. Lord my Heavenly Father, I thank you for Your word, in whatever form it takes. Thank you for Your Scripture, Your wisdom rendered through the ages. Thank you for Your wisdom in those around me, passed down in testimonies with lessons for us today. Thank you for the Church, through which these two may be married, combined into one holy communion that we, Your followers share throughout the flow of time. In this I thank you Lord, for letting me break bread with my spiritual ancestors, brothers and sisters, sharing the joy of Your truth and word, Amen, Amen.
