12-08-2023 Sirach 2 V1011 Safe from sin’s fear
The Book of Sirach Ch Two v- 10 thru 11
10 Consider the generations long past and see: has anyone trusted in the Lord and been disappointed? Has anyone persevered in his fear and been forsaken? Has anyone called upon him and been ignored? 11 For the Lord is compassionate and merciful; forgives sins and saves in time of trouble.
Look over your generations. Can you see God being trusted? Religion and spirituality have played a significant role in providing answers and comfort to countless individuals. It’s fascinating to think about generations long past who trusted in God and believed that their lives had a higher purpose. The unwavering trust they had in God’s plan is quite remarkable. They believed that their lives were part of a larger divine narrative, and that gave them a sense of purpose and hope. They found solace in the idea that even during challenging times, God had a plan for them. It’s interesting how their faith in God seemed to provide them with a source of unwavering strength and resilience. They faced struggles, disappointments, and hardships, yet their trust in God never wavered, and they were never disappointed. That unyielding trust must have given them a sense of peace and contentment, knowing that they were part of something greater than themselves. They believed that their actions and experiences had a purpose, even if they couldn’t fully comprehend it. They believed God would forgive their sins and allow them to see a Heavenly completion. The same for you and me. We must trust is His Divine Power and share this desire to live forever in Him. Salvation is for every generation. Amen.
Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. The Lord’s Prayer.
At the Savior’s command and formed by divine teaching, we dare to say:
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Deliver us, Lord, we pray, from every evil, graciously grant peace in our days, that, by the help of your mercy, we may be always free from sin and safe from all distress, as we await the blessed hope and the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ. For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours now and for ever. Amen.
I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen Son in Law Mark Stern; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Happy Birthday Elliott. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. We pray for Holy Mother Church. Our prayers for a little boy named David Alexander. Praise God thank You Jesus. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

**Safe from sin’s fear**
Past generations considered
Lord trusted see
Disappointed none delivered
Lord’s fear be
Not ignored or forsaken
Him called so dear
Compassionate Lord not mistaken
Safe from sin’s fear
Troubling times He commandeers
