A fragrant offering

Peter Neilson April 08, 2015 0 0

Phil 4:18

Not that I am looking for a gift,but I am looking for what may be credited to your account. I have received full payment......The gifts that you sent are a fragrant offering, an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing to God.

Lord Jesus Christ,
on this hope-filled side of Easter
thank You for making a unique sacrifice
pleasing to God
that we might live
at peace with God, with others and with ourselves.

Eternal Father, in this long season of remembrance
of wars where too many have died
in too many places
in too many ways
we cherish silently the freedoms we enjoy.

Helper-Spirit, with admiration we pray for
those who sacrifice time and life's opportunities
to care for those they love:
for sick children
for ageing parents
losing mobility or memory.
We remember them and name those we know.
The world is scented by the fragrance of their kindness. AMEN
