Sunday Devotional: Petition God with a grateful heart

Philippians 4:6-9

Brothers and sisters:
Have no anxiety at all, but in everything,
by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving,
make your requests known to God.
Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding
will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, brothers and sisters,
whatever is true, whatever is honorable,
whatever is just, whatever is pure,
whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious,
if there is any excellence
and if there is anything worthy of praise,
think about these things.
Keep on doing what you have learned and received
and heard and seen in me.
Then the God of peace will be with you.

Dear God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,
We worship You, we praise You, we glorify You.
We thank You for so many completely gratuitous gifts, especially life itself.
Please bless and protect our brave men and women in the military who, everyday, risk their very lives in so many places across the world, including the 3,000 being sent to West Africa to “combat” the ebola epidemic
~Eowyn

JESUS NEVER EXISTED HE IS A THEOLOGICAL INVENTION https://beyondallreligion.net/christianity/ For 1700 years Christianity has presented the Old and New Testaments as records of historic events, and false religions were born of that deception. It is now academically accepted that the Bible has no historic relevance, and no archaeological or historical evidence exists to support its stories as real world events. Organized religions have a major economic interest in maintaining literal interpretation of both Old and New Testaments, for when the emptiness of biblical stories is fully absorbed, the entire edifice of Christianity is revealed as false. — a total fraud.… Read more »

When you don’t have faith, it is easy to go along with what “Scholars” say is the truth about the written word of God. How very sweet it is to see the pictures of our military troops beseeching their Eternal Father for guidance and protection in carrying out their duties. Dr Eowyn, thank you for this important reminder–we must give thanks for the blessings that have given us–if we expect further blessings to flow.

This is such a treasured verse! I even had this very verse put on marble for my granddaughter. It covers everything! Eternal thanks, dear Dr. Eowyn, for this post!

Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this beautiful and enlightening post. We must overlook the stupid, unrealistic and irrelevant comments of the individual called Ian, and appreciate the message of St. Paul’s letter which is the Second Reading at Mass this weekend. He wrote to this congregation to encourage them in their troubles, and to help them keep their minds and hearts upon Jesus, and upon all excellence and virtues that come from Him and are gifts poured out to us. I think His message is most appropriate for our military, as they are involved in situations so full of hatred… Read more »
