Easter Prayer
March 30, 2024

My Easter prayer for everyone:

Dear heavenly Father,

As we approach Easter, a time for contemplation and appreciation, we come to you with humble hearts. We pray for adults, children, and families that are struggling during this time. May your calming presence surround them and fill them with your serenity.

We appeal for your love and care for the adults who are experiencing difficulties in their everyday lives. Give them the courage and endurance to continue their journey and to believe in your intentions for their lives.

We pray for the protection of the children's innocence and the filling of their hearts with hope and joy. May they come to seek you and your teachings and grow in wisdom and understanding.

We also remember individuals who have lost loved ones, especially around Easter. We pray for your healing and peace to be with them. During their time of grieving, allow them to find comfort and strength in you.

Help us, Lord, to express your love and concern to people around us, especially those who are in pain. May we be your hands and feet, bringing light and hope to those in need.

We thank you for the sacrifice of your Son, Jesus Christ, as well as the hope and new life that Easter provides. May we always remember you.

Christian Lady

January 11, 2024

During clergy duties I stopped in for a quick Costa coffee in Tenterden, Kent and a nice lady, Vicki Young, approached me. She is a carer and a Christian. She said that although we clergy pray for others, we seldom get prayers from them.

She said a beautiful prayer for me, one with much thought and significant meaning. I was really moved by it, and as she left, I rushed to the toilet to wipe my tears away.

I love my work, but more importantly, I like this woman and her willingness to reach out. Thank you to her.

There are lovely individuals in the world. There really are.

I gave this lady my cross and chain as a Christian gift which I wear hidden under my fleece and said a very quick prayer for this wonderful lady.

Respecting each other's beliefs enhances diversity and unity. Regardless of our faith or lack thereof, it's key to understand that the essence of humanity lies in our compassion, kindness, and acceptance. Religious believers derive their moral framework from scripture, seeking guidance and solace in divine wisdom. Non-religious believers, on the other hand, may turn to philosophy, science, and human experience for their answers. Different as these paths may seem, both ultimately aim for a more enlightened, harmonious life. Let us cherish this variety, fostering mutual respect and coexistence. Remember, everyone's journey is unique.

The priesthood represents the deep affection that Jesus holds in his heart. Whenever you encounter a priest, conjure thoughts of our divine Savior, Jesus Christ.

Every individual who follows Christianity should have the willingness to recognise the importance of persistently standing by and expressing the truth. Embarking on a journey alongside Jesus Christ, who embodies the very essence of truth. Knowing Jesus makes it simpler to speak His Truth, regardless of the obstacles we face. Despite facing opposition, Jesus remains steadfast.

It doesn’t matter if you Believe, because I know one day you will..!
