2 Thess. 1:11-12 prayer

This is a prayer I pray for my family and children....thought I'd share it with you.

To this end, I pray then always for my family; that You,
our God, may make each of us worthy of Your calling and
may fulfill every resolve for good and every work of faith by
Your power so that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in us and us in Him according to the grace of You,
our God and our Saviour, Jesus Christ our Lord.
(Based on 2 Thess 1:11-12)

Teach Me To Treat....

This is a favourite prayer of mine....I share it with you!!!

Lord, grant me to greet the coming day in peace. Help me in all things to rely upon Your holy will. In every hour of the day, reveal Your will to me. Bless my dealings with all who surround me. Teach me to treat all that come to me throughout the day with peace of soul and with firm conviction that Your will governs all. In all my deeds and words, guide my thoughts and feelings. In unforeseen events, let me not forget that all things are under your care. Teach me to act firmly and wisely, without embittering and embarrassing others. Give me strength to bear the fatigue of the coming day and all that it shall bring. Direct my will, teach me to pray, pray Yourself in me. Amen.

and another version of this prayer is this:

Lord, grant me to greet the coming day in peace. Help me in all things to rely upon Your holy will. In every hour of the day, reveal Your will to me. Bless my dealings with all who surround me. Teach me to treat all that come to me throughout the day with peace of soul and with firm conviction that Your will governs all. In all my deeds and words, guide my thoughts and feelings. In unforeseen events, let me not forget that all things are under your care. Teach me to act firmly and wisely, without embittering and embarrassing others. Give me strength to bear the fatigue of the coming day and all that it shall bring. Direct my will, teach me to pray, pray Yourself in me. Amen.

Loaded Trike

Many men here earn money by collecting plastic, cardboard, discarded appliances and furniture, etc....
So, it's not unusual to see a bicycle trike loaded like this one....
