Grant Me O Lord................November 17



"Grant me, O Lord my God,
a mind to know you,
a heart to seek you,
wisdom to find you,
conduct pleasing to you,
faithful perseverance in waiting for you,
and a hope of finally embracing you."


St. Thomas Aquinas

I love the words of old prayers like this so eloquent.

O God, who art the author of peace and lover of concord,
in knowledge of whom standeth our eternal life,
whose service is perfect freedom;
defend us thy humble servants in all assaults of our enemies;
that we, surely trusting in thy defence,
may not fear the power of any adversaries;
through the might of Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

This is a wonderful card and a beautiful saying. I am going to pass this out to the inmates at the jail this week.
The inmates in jail need to realize love one another which is a hard concept for them.
Thank you
