12-31-2023 Sirach 7 V1011 Prayer impatience destroy
The Book of Sirach Ch Seven v- 10 and 11
10 Do not be impatient in prayer or neglect almsgiving. 11 Do not ridicule the embittered; Remember: there is One who exalts and humbles.
My reflection today comes in psalm my own way of speaking. Prayer impatient is not set in the Will of God. God’s Will is difficult to understand if you become impatient with how God gives and takes. You must be willing to say what ever He gives or keeps from us is our Divine path of Truth. We must be willing to accept whatever He throws our way; the good, the bad and the ugly. We must be thankful willing to give back what He bestows upon us. Really that’s what sharing Salvation is all about; giving back what He has given to us. Redemption must always be a two-way street willing to forgive as you have been forgiven. Enjoy the poem- eight stanzas of Patient Prayer. Amen.
In the realm of fervent prayers, where souls converge,
There lies a lesson, oh seeker, to be learnt,
For patience, a virtue, we must ever preserve,
In bowing before the One, our hearts to be burnt.
Tread gently, dear soul, in the sacred domain,
Where whispered pleas reach the divine abode,
For impatience begets naught but fleeting pain,
While steadfastness in prayer shall reap the bestowed.
In the hallowed space where we seek solace true,
Let not our hearts be tainted with anxious haste,
For the One who listens, the One who imbues,
Is the Master of Time, Orchestrator of grace.
Oh, humble wanderer, let your spirit find rest,
In the tranquil embrace of each whispered word,
For the One who humbles, the One who knows best,
Shall lift you higher, as your soul is conferred.
Do not rush the sacred communion of prayer,
For the One who reigns supreme in the realm above,
Shall weave the tapestry of blessings, ever fair,
As we surrender to His mercy, His boundless love.
In every prostration, in each humble plea,
Let patience be the anchor that steadies your soul,
For the One who exalts, the One who sets free,
Shall answer in His time, making broken hearts whole.
So, dear seeker, be still, let your prayers ascend,
With unwavering faith, with a heart sincere,
For the One who listens, the One without end,
Shall answer, and in His response, you shall adhere.
In the realm of fervent prayers, where souls unite,
Patience be the compass that guides us through,
For the One who humbles, the One of Infinite Might,
Shall exalt us, dear seeker, as we remain steadfast and true. 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.

**Prayer impatience destroy**
Prayer impatience destroy
Almsgiving neglect not
Embittered ridicule void
Remember your spot
Only One exalts
Only One humbles
Erases your faults
Grace of fumbles
