Jesus is the reason...


Heavenly Father,
Thank you for the gift of life, the gift of grace, the gift of love, the gift of Jesus.
I ask that You touch every precious heart reading this today; that You fill every empty ache with comfort, healing and hope; that You shine Your light in their darkness, and illuminate their homes and families with Joy Divine.
Give them peace in the chaos, strength when they are weak, words of life when harshness threatens to rule their tongue, kindness and mercy where needed, rest in their slumber.
Surround their homes with Your welcoming presence and let all who pass their doorstep feel Your Spirit embracing them.
Keep them safe as they travel, clear headed in the hustle and bustle, and free to let go of the unimportant.
But most of all Lord God, impart the fragrance of Jesus upon their thoughts and plans through this season of Holy celebration so that He stands in glory at the centre of it all.
In the name of our Saviour and Redeemer I ask this,
Amen.

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
hugs
Jenny
