Here is some Scriptural Reflection entitled "A letter of Encouragement"
A letter of Encouragement
Praise God in his Sanctuary;
Praise him, in the vault of heaven.
Praise him, for his mighty deeds;
praise him, for his own greatness.
Praise him with trumpet blast;
Praise him with lyre and harp.
Praise him, with dance and tambourines;
Praise him with pipe and strings.
Praise him with clashing cymbals;
Praise him with clanging cymbals.
Let everything that breathes, sing praise to Yahweh.
A Letter in the post!
Just a quick note to say a big ‘thank you’ for helping me out the other day. It was really appreciated. I am not that great at asking for help, or even admitting that I need it. I am so grateful to you for your act of kindness; it made a big difference.
Think of how it feels when someone does a simple act of kindness for you, the huge difference a phone call, receiving a text or an email, just to ask how you are doing or to tell them that you are thinking of them.
Even from a distance we can make a huge difference to those around us, never underestimate the warmth, strength and comfort that brings.
Our loving, Heavenly Father,
Thank you for family, friends and neighbours.
Thank you for the joy of receiving a letter, phone call, text or email of greeting, encouragement or news.
Be with us now; fill us afresh with your Holy Spirit; and guide our thoughts and responses at this time of uncertainty,
In Jesus’ name, Amen
