04-16-2024 Sirach 34 V1920 Love for the Lord He watches




The Book of Sirach Ch 34 v- 19 thru 20

19 The eyes of the Lord are upon those who love him; he is their mighty shield and strong support, A shelter from the heat, a shade from the noonday sun, a guard against stumbling, a help against falling. 20 He lifts up spirits, brings a sparkle to the eyes, gives health and life and blessing.


The eyes of the Lord are a source of comfort and protection for those who love Him. They are filled with compassion and understanding, always watching over His beloved children with unwavering attention. His gaze is like a beacon of light in the darkness, leading the way and guiding His followers towards righteousness and truth. His eyes see beyond the surface, piercing through to the depths of the soul, knowing the innermost thoughts and desires of each individual.


As a mighty shield, the Lord’s eyes provide a barrier of protection against all forms of harm and danger. They are a fortress of strength, shielding His beloved from the attacks of the enemy and the trials of life. With the Lord’s eyes upon them, His followers can rest assured that they are safe and secure in His loving embrace. The Lord’s eyes are also a source of support and encouragement, offering a steady hand to hold onto in times of trouble and adversity. They are a constant presence, always there to offer strength and guidance when needed most.


Like a shelter from the scorching heat, the Lord’s eyes provide relief and respite from the trials and tribulations of life. They offer a cool oasis in the midst of a desert, a place of rest and rejuvenation for the weary soul. As a shade from the noonday sun, the Lord’s eyes offer protection from the harsh realities of the world. They provide a refuge from the storms of life, offering solace and comfort to those who seek His presence. The Lord’s eyes are a guard against stumbling, guiding His followers along the path of righteousness and truth. They are a beacon of hope and direction, leading His beloved towards a life of peace, joy, and fulfillment. With the Lord’s eyes upon us, we His followers can walk confidently and securely in His love and grace live forever. 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 our niece Brittany. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

04-16-2024 Sirach 34 v-1920


**Eyes of the Lord**


In the eyes of the Lord, we find solace and peace

He watches over those who love Him without cease

A mighty shield and strong support, He stands

Protecting us from harm with His invisible loving hands


In His gaze, we find a shelter from the heat

A refuge from the trials that we constantly meet

When the noonday sun beats down with all its might

He is our shade, our source of delight protection from spite


He guards us against stumbling on our way

Guiding us through life, day by day

In His eyes, we find strength and grace

A love that will never fade or be erased


Forever let us look to the Lord above

And trust in His unfailing Salvation love

For in His eyes, we find our truest friend

Our protector, our shelter, until the very end. Amen.
