May all discover you today,
Turning to you,
And trusting in your care.
May all rejoice in you today,
And casting off despair.
May all remain in you today,
Walking with you,
And facing every test.
May all unite with you today,
Living in you,
And finding perfect rest.

I really love the format that you use here Ruth, all the second lines can be read independently and so on with the third and fourth lines. Is there are a name for this technique? It is very effective in expressing a developing truth. God bless you Ruth.
Thank you for your encouragement, Alan, as always. I’m smiling because I don’t think of myself as using any techniques, and don’t have any names for how my writing comes out. I just listen to God until it’s done, which can take minutes, or, more often, all day! XXXX
