Cheerfulness and courage – 11th April 2019

Lord, help me to face life with cheerfulness and courage. Help me to cope with setbacks, upsets and trials with fortitude. Help me not to be bound by past disappointments, but to put my best foot forward and attempt to accomplish worthwhile goals. Show me where to find things I can enjoy and people I can love. In Christ’s name I ask it – AMEN

Cruel Dictators – 10th April 2019

I remember today Lord those countries that are stuck with cruel dictators who raid the public purse and run down the economies of their countries. Bless the little people who suffer the most and struggle with poverty and unemployment, lack of education and inadequate medical facilities. Heal them. I ask in the name of Jesus Christ – AMEN

Knowledge – 9th April 2019

I pray Lord, for those who work to eradicate the evil of ignorance. Speed the work of those who bring knowledge and understanding to simple and backward people. May increased resources be allocated to assist them. Enable those who are researching better methods of tuition to find solutions. I pray this through Jesus Christ – AMEN.

ROLLED AWAY!

“The women … found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus”.

Lk 24:1, 2, 3 NIV

It is Easter Day, the day we celebrate the Lord’s resurrection. Christian disciples the world over will be poring over the resurrection stories again, looking for clues, proofs, previously unnoticed details and any other aspect of the story that “hits” them. The great hymns will be sung again, pilgrimages will be pursued, and faith will be renewed for millions of people. And since this is a day of remembering people who have died, it will all be tinged with moments of sadness.

But it is a day of great hope as well. The resurrection of Jesus, in all its mystery, says to us, “This mortal life is not all there is”. Life is in the hands of God, not nature, not fate, doubt nor “common sense”. For many people life is meaningless. It doesn’t make sense. The universe is something that has happened but everything in it is a mess. And it is made worse by the stupidity, greed, animal cravings and conflicts of the human beings in the universe. That is a pretty miserable and bleak understanding of life on planet earth. But the resurrection of Jesus throws light on the subject. It says to uncomprehending human beings, “God has the final word. He is greater, mightier and more glorious than all the great people who have ever lived and beyond this earthly existence there is hope of a future and hope for the future. Easter is all about hope in each and every situation. There is hope beyond defeat, beyond disappointment, and beyond death. Hallelujah!
