Discovering God's Kingdom – Growing the Church

Wednesday 19 August

I have written about how to end the day with a prayer of gratitude - thanking God for three specific things that have happened to you in the day as you go to sleep for those who have forgotten!

Reading a short while ago I found a way to start a day, the language at times may be quaint and not what we are used to but it is fantastic to think we can start each day with a clean sheet as it were.

I will start this day in the presence of the holy angels of heaven:

without malice, without jealousy, without envy
without fear of any one under the sun,
the holy Son of God to shield me.

God, kindle in my heart within
A flame of love for my neighbour and to my foe,
to my friend, to all.
To the winner, to the loser,
O Son of the loveliest Mary.

without malice, without jealousy, without envy
without fear of any one under the sun,
the holy Son of God to shield me.
