Play your part

Did you hear the call?
It was clear and powerful;
Though it came from
The silent voice of God;
God’s silent
Louder voice,
Than the loudest human voice;
He has called you
To take up cutlass and hoe
In hand,
And get into his vineyard;
Where there is work to do;
Each one their share
Of work they have;
You have your share,
I have my share;
Others have their share;
And working together,
God’s kingdom will be built.
No one can build it alone;
All hands are needed on deck;
So you answer your call,
And play your part
In the Lord’s vineyard.

Sharing ideas ( Be inspired today 289 by Ngobesing Suh Romanus)

When we share ideas,
Don’t be angry
If we disagree;
We may disagree
To agree;
That happens often;
If we only agree,
We may not grow;
No one will shout
When someone is
Going wrong;
You may dance to death
And the only
Will only agree,
Fearing to hurt you
Kills you
In brought day light
Inadvertently.
So my friend,
When we share ideas,
Though we differ,
Don’t take offence.

Challenges of employment and unemployment

What are the challenges of unemployment in your country?
Why is employment so important in every country?
Why do many countries find it hard
to handle unemployment?
Is it because many leaders have departed from God that they are unable to handle unemployment?
Would getting close to God
By loving him and obeying him
Help world leaders solve the problem of unemployment
In their countries?
Let us talk. Say something.

Save a girl. Are you ready? Will you?

Have you seen this letter? If you think it can save a girl somewhere, why not make it get to as many girls as you can.

I have seen so many girls who have fallen victim to situations they could have avoided or escaped from, but they didn’t know until they landed in trouble.

Knowledge is wealth you know. Just a short piece of advice like what we have in this letter can-do wonders for lots of girls.

Please, share and let it reach many.

Thanks for your generosity.

Prayer for food

God our Father,
Thank you for creating food
And making so much if it
Available to humanity;
We have so much food
In the farms,
In markets
And in some homes.
Thank you for the farmers
Who produce this food.
We all need food;
That is one language
That everybody speaks
And understands;
We all need food;
Whether we are young
Or we are old;
Whether we are rich or poor,
Whether we are leaders or followers;
We need food;
Food is good and bad;
Food builds but also destroys;
We cannot do without food;
People are healthy and happy
When they eat good, delicious food;
Many people fall sick
Because they don’t eat
Good food;
When people cannot afford
Food to eat, they are sad;
God our Father,
We pray for food;
We pray for more and good food
For everybody;
We pray that you help us
To share the food in the world
In a way that everybody
Will have a fair share
And be happy.
Stop the starvation
That is going on in the world;
Stop giving so much food
To some people
And nothing to many others.
O Lord, stop the fighting,
That is rocking the world
Because of food.
Again,
Thank you for all our food;
Amen!

Prayer for an excellent world

O Good Master, King of Glory,

Master of heaven and earth;

Here I am, still in bed,

Rolling from side to side,

In fear, doubt and worry,

Thinking about my day,

Thinking about my future;

Thinking about your plan

For my life this day;

And the year ahead;

Thinking about your plan

For us and our country;

As I lie here looking up,

Thinking of where to go

From here, my eyes are full

Of tears as I see a future

That does not give me hope;

How can tears not fill my eyes

When so many were brutally killed

This night in wicked

And meaningless fighting;

Violence, wars?

I can see blood all over;

Total despair grips me;

But I cannot forget, O Lord,

That you are here with me;

You have given us assurance

That you will be with us,

In good and bad times;

That even when the storms

Are raging,

We have no reason to doubt

If we put our trust in you;

Yes, O Lord, you are

The beginning and the end;

The start and the finish;

You are both the door

And the key that opens

That door;

What you decree, no one can

Change.

Grant us the wisdom

To know what is right;

To do what is right:

And what will bring glory

To your holy and almighty name,

Now, today, and for ever.

Protect me and my loved ones

This day and forever as you

Have always done;

Protect all your children

Who are living in fear

Of the unknown;

Not sure to see

Even the next hour;

Not to talk of the next day;

There are many who are living

In great fear;

There are many who are worried;

There are many who go hungry,

With no food to eat

In the mist of plenty;

In a world of abundance;

Destroyed by the sheer greed

Of hawks everywhere,

Who want to be the only cocks

To crow;

There are many everywhere

Who live on hills,

Not in homes,

But in the open air;

What the future holds,

They don’t know;

They live at your mercy alone.

Grant O Lord,

That a way may be found for them

To return to their homes

And live in peace for ever after.

Bring justice to the world;

We live in a world where injustice

Is the order of the day;

Where dishonest people

Find their way through

Unscrupulous means,

While honest ones suffer;

Come into our hearts O Lord,

Fill us with the right spirit;

So that we live not as we like,

But in accordance with your word

And your plan for us and the world.

On you alone we count for justice

In the world;

And love and peace;

We are tired of hate burning

The world;

Consuming the world;

Destroying the world;

We humans have failed ourselves;

Only you can we trust.

All our hope is in you.

Save us;

Stand always by us as you have promised,

Amen!

His will you must do

Something is burning in my heart;
Fiercely, burning in my heart;
A fire to share in a big way,
The many blessings from Above;
Little village boy that I was,
All doors seemed locked to me;
But God, in his boundless mercy,
Carved out a place for me.
What an amazing gift from God,
I like others to have a taste.
And this is what burns in me;
In the day as in the night,
It keeps on burning;
Burning really fiercely and hot.
Now I know it is the voice of God,
Calling out hard to me;
I cannot fail to answer the call;
Asking he tells me what to do.
His will I am bound to do.
His will, you are bound to do;
To share his blessings to all.
