Prayer of Peace by St Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace: where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy. O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in…

Trust God and be True To Him

Take time to worship God today. There is so much He does for us that we do not take cognizance of. So much he protects us from that we do not see or know about. God is ever faithful but the devil and our worries keep us from seeing and appreciating how faithful He is. Know today that only God has total control over you. Only God can pass a verdict over your life. Only God has a say in your life. So learn to trust God more. It is…

Loving Shepherd of Thy sheep

1 Loving Shepherd of Thy sheep, Keep Thy lamb, in safety keep; Nothing can Thy power withstand; None can pluck me from Thy hand. 2 Loving Saviour, Thou didst give Thine own life that we might live; And the hands outstretched to bless Bear the cruel nails’ impress. 3 We would praise Thee every day, Gladly all Thy will obey, Like Thy blessed ones above Happy in Thy precious love. 4 Loving Shepherd, ever near, Teach Thy lambs Thy voice to hear; Suffer not our steps to stray From the…

God Loves You More Than You Know

God thinks about you. Every single day, His eyes are on you to know what is going on with you. You are special to Him. Thousands of years ago, you were one of the reasons He decided to let go of His son to come and die. You are the reason He swore not to destroy earth in spite of the calamities that occur here. You’re precious to Him. God wants you to know that He’s sad whenever you are sad, and when you’re joyful, He rejoices with you. Although…

There’s No Sin That God Has Not Heard Of

Often times, we are tempted to sit down and start counting our sins and being depressed over them. We pray so hard for God to forgive us but we have not forgiven ourselves. You need to understand that some people have done worse. There is nothing new under the face of the sun. The beautiful thing about children is that they forget easily. A child will cry out in anger if you hurt her, but after a few hours, maybe after she has slept and woken up, she forgets. She…

Rock of Ages, cleft for me

Rock of Ages, cleft for me, Let me hide myself in Thee; Let the water and the blood, From Thy riven side which flowed, Be of sin the double cure, Save me from its guilt and power.   Not the labor of my hands Can fulfill Thy law’s demands; Could my zeal no respite know, Could my tears forever flow, all for sin could not atone; thou must save, and thou alone.   Nothing in my hands I bring, Simply to Thy cross I cling; Naked, come to Thee for…

Praise to the Holiest in the height

1 Praise to the Holiest in the height, and in the depth be praise: in all his words most wonderful, most sure in all his ways. 2 O loving wisdom of our God! When all was sin and shame, a second Adam to the fight and to the rescue came. 3 O wisest love! that flesh and blood, which did in Adam fail, should strive afresh against the foe, should strive and should prevail; 4 And that a higher gift than grace should flesh and blood refine, God’s presence and…

Stop Worrying And Allow God Do The Thinking

Sometimes we get to a point in our lives where nothing seems to be working out, and we feel weighed down by uncertainties and worries. In the face of this, all we need do is prepare. Opportunities would definitely come at some point, but how prepared would we be? The men you see today riding in big cars and living in mansions, most of them started with nothing. Majority of them slept hungry at some point while others had only one good cloth. But at some point, gradually, things started…

Being More Accommodating When People Offend Us

Judge not. No one is perfect, neither is there anyone who has not sinned. Often times, we expect so much from people and cry foul when things go wrong. We sometimes judge others based on our own strengths and weaknesses. Forgetting that people are different and people have different capacities. With this mentality, we even holding grudges for ages over sins that we ourselves have committed at some point knowingly or unknowingly. When we have understood that no one is perfect and anybody is capable of anything, only then would…
