Your Daily Bread for Life...


Your Daily Bread for Life.




First sentence of First prayer in Continental Congress 1774:
O Lord our Heavenly Father, high and mighty King of kings, and Lord of lords, who dost from thy throne behold all the dwellers on earth and reignest with power supreme and uncontrolled over all the Kingdoms, Empires and Governments; look down in mercy, we beseech Thee, on these our American States, who have fled to Thee from the rod of the oppressor and thrown themselves on Thy gracious protection, desiring to be henceforth dependent only on Thee. 

To Thee have they appealed for the righteousness of their cause; to Thee do they now look up for that countenance and support, which Thou alone canst give. Take them, therefore, Heavenly Father, under Thy nurturing care; give them wisdom in Council and valor in the field; defeat the malicious designs of our cruel adversaries; convince them of the unrighteousness of their Cause and if they persist in their sanguinary purposes, of own unerring justice, sounding in their hearts, constrain them to drop the weapons of war from their unnerved hands in the day of battle!

Be Thou present, O God of wisdom, and direct the councils of this honorable assembly; enable them to settle things on the best and surest foundation. That the scene of blood may be speedily closed; that order, harmony and peace may be effectually restored, and truth and justice, religion and piety, prevail and flourish amongst the people. Preserve the health of their bodies and vigor of their minds; shower down on them and the millions they here represent, such temporal blessings as Thou seest expedient for them in this world and crown them with everlasting glory in the world to come. All this we ask in the name and through the merits of Jesus Christ, Thy Son and our Savior.

Amen.

Rector of Christ Church of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Pearl’s Poem: 


God’s Equality: 

We are women. They are men. From creation it has been. We are us and they are them. That’s God’s Equality. We bleed red Blood. We all feel pain. We all splash mud when in the rain. The Good Lord loves us all the same. That’s God’s equality.  If our eyes try to talk then our eyes can’t see. If our feet try to walk where our hands should be....That’s satan mocking you and me! That’s not Equality!  So we’ll walk and we’ll talk and think and see...Be all the Lord would have us be. We’ll take our part in harmony. That’s God’s equality
