A THANKSGIVING FOR PEOPLE

Wednesday, November 24, 2010

The following is a prayer by William Barclay
 
PRAYER


For those who are an example to us, and those who in their lives show us what life ought to be;

For those who are an inspiration to us, and who fill us with the desire to make of life a noble thing;

For those who are a comfort to us when life has hurt us;

For those who are a strength to us, and in whose company we feel fit to tackle any task;

For those who, although we do not know them personally, have by their words or by their writings 
   influenced us for good;

For those whose love and care and service and understanding we so often take for granted;

For those who give us loyal friendship and for those who give us true love:
             We this night thank you, O God.

And most of all we thank you for Jesus to be the pattern of our lives, the Companion of our way, and the Saviour of our souls.

You are a voice in our blogosphere of encouragement. I love that Charlotte wrote a post linking to you. You two fit together so well. :) I hope that you had a wonderful birthday yesterday. You're not getting older; only better.
