Prayer and Praise              By Linda Clifford-Hayes 

David had asked the Lord in prayer that he may be able to publish with the voice of thanksgiving and tell of all God’s wondrous works (psalms 26), that is what I do today and through this written prayer.

“Lord, you know well that from a child, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine honour dwelleth. When i am in your house , with your people, i see and feel your majesty. When i am in your house and under your covering, my foot is sure and in an even place. I will forever bless you and your name and the praise of you shall continually be in my mouth.

Holy Father, I want to thank you for the divine life you have given us through the exchange that took place on the cross giving us salvation without which, we wouldnt have Zoë – life. You have given us purpose and a hope , you have given us light and life and even laughter – you have given us the morning star. We see your beauty and grace in all things – there may be a theory for everything ….but one thing we know, it is you who created the universe. It is you who are our strong rock our high tower – we can ever run in and be safe.

Father we thank you for the hope which makes us not ashamed – we thank you for the Love which you have shed abroad in our hearts. We thank you for the myriad of blessings in our individual and corporate situations – we dont have to look far Lord to see that there is always a worst circumstance than our own. Truly it is said you don’t give us more than we can bear, but you give us more grace to stand. You in us is our strength and shield in moments of attack or times of weakness. Continue to take over our mind, soul body and spirit – continue to lead us with your right hand of righteousness – direct our work in truth , be at the centre of all our endeavours – reignite passion, compassion and a flame to do the work you have called us to do Bless those who are called by your name and extend mercy unto our generation to those who may not yet know you and as you have promised.
Thank you the the hearts who are willing to serve and give time to build your house in so many ways. Increase unity and love amongst us so that the blessings may be commanded and continue to flow.

Increase in us the joy of your salvation and continue to uphold us with your free spirit. These and other mercies we ask in your sons name.
