God who made the earth

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1; NLT).

The Son of Man has come down from heaven (John 3:13; NLT).

The Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, He will teach you all things (John 14:26; NKJV).

Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me (Psalm 23:4; KJV).

**********************************************

Holy Father,
God who made the earth,

Son of Man,
Who came to us by birth,

Holy Spirit,
Helper, teacher, friend –

Be with us throughout life,
And at its end.

Everything I need

I knew you today

They told about the things that had happened on the road, and how He was known to them in the breaking of bread (Luke 24:35; NKJV).

Their eyes were opened, and they recognised him (Luke 24:31; DBY).

****************************

 

Lord,

I knew you today
In the fragrance of roses;
In trees full of berries,
And fields of sweet hay.

I knew you today
In the sheep and the cattle;
In faraway mountains,
And ships in the bay.

I knew you today
In the love of my partner;
In greetings with strangers,
And hugs from a friend.

I knew you today
In my work and my leisure;
I knew you today
When I reached journey’s end.
