Dear Heavenly Father,
We thank you for the many blessings you have given us. John 1:16 states:
“From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after
another.“  We think of the beautiful country we live in, the people
around us who we know care for and about us, for the gift of freedom to
worship. We think of so many who are forced to practise their beliefs in
private and with much trepidation. We also think of those who hear
missiles and see devastation all around them.  Oh God you know their
pain and desolation.  Today we give thanks but not forgetting so many
who suffer.  Give us all courage and be our guide this week as we go
forth filling us with hope and strength for each day.

And now as we go on our weekly journey may we go knowing you are there
to meet us wherever we are at.  Thank you for giving your life so that
we may live. May we go into this world and be ambassadors of Your light,
your hope and your peace. Amen
