The Book of Sirach Ch Seven v- 32 thru 33
32 To the poor also extend your hand, that your blessing may be complete. 33 Give your gift to all the living, and do not withhold your kindness from the dead.
How do you give to the poor? How do you share your excess with those in need? Be it a Church or the beggars who gets your surplus of greed. Isn’t it greed to hold on to too much? I must save one says to overcome a future bust. IN the end it just sits and goes to waste giving our children the grace of our excess which not a soul can deny but face. I have learned to give until it hurts. God always finds a way to help those in need through his ministers of worth. People like you and me who help even when not asked. A meal here a drink there clothing so mere is warmth so dear. Enjoy the poem of giving to the poor and praying for the dead where we find mercy instead of an eternal death. Amen.
Poor Give praying for the Dead
In reality where divine blessings reside,
A truth often overlooked, we must confide,
For in the hearts of men, a message we find,
Where heaven’s grace and compassion align.
When the sun ascends to its golden throne,
And the earth awakens, no longer alone,
We seek the path where God’s blessings abound,
A journey of love, where joy can be found.
For in the act of giving, hearts are freed,
A symphony of kindness truth indeed,
To feed the hungry to clothe the bare,
Is to embrace God’s love with utmost care.
In the eyes of the poor, a flicker of hope,
A testament to the strength we learn to cope,
For in their struggle, a lesson is taught,
That in selflessness, miracles are sought.
When we share our abundance, both big and small,
We heed the divine’s all-encompassing call,
For in giving, our souls find true release,
And blessings bestowed, bring eternal peace.
But not just in giving, our prayers hold might,
For the souls departed, shining in light,
Their journey may end, but their spirits remain,
In the realm of prayers, they forever sustain.
To pray for the dead, like whispers in the breeze,
Brings solace to hearts, puts troubled minds at ease,
For in remembrance, their souls are held dear,
Their presence forever, in love’s atmosphere.
When we offer our prayers, a bridge we create,
Between the living and those who’ve met their fate,
In this sacred connection, blessings arise,
As heaven hears our pleas, with grace it complies.
Let us remember the power we possess,
To give to the poor, to pray and to bless,
For in these acts, God’s grace is complete,
A symphony of love, Salvation is sweet. 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 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.
