04-29-2024 Sirach 39 V0507 Early riser seeks the Lord’s Law to study

The Book of Sirach Ch 39 v- Five thru Seven

5 (A righteous person who studies the Law of the Lord daily) for His care is to rise early to seek the Lord his Maker, to petition the Most High, To open his mouth in prayer, to ask pardon for his sins. 6 If it pleases the Lord Almighty, he will be filled with the spirit of understanding; He will pour forth his words of wisdom and in prayer give praise to the Lord. 7 He will direct his knowledge and his counsel, as he meditates upon God’s mysteries.

For the past 18 years, I have made it a priority to start my day early and dedicate time to studying the Law of the Lord in the early silence of Truth. This daily practice has become a fundamental aspect of my life, shaping my beliefs, values, and actions. Each morning, I immerse myself in the teachings of the Bible, seeking guidance and wisdom from God's word to understand His will and seek to share Salvation as the only way to Heaven.

As I delve into the scriptures, I am constantly reminded of the importance of seeking forgiveness for my sins and striving to live a life in accordance with God's will. Through prayer and reflection, I acknowledge my shortcomings and ask the Lord to cleanse my heart and fill me with His spirit of understanding.

In addition to studying the Law of the Lord, I also make it a point to express the poetry of my soul through prayer and worship. I find solace in lifting my voice to the heavens, praising God for His grace and mercy in my daily Godcast I call Universal Utterings. In these moments of spiritual connection, I feel a deep sense of peace and fulfillment, knowing that I am walking in alignment with His divine purpose for my life.

In His Deliverance of my sins, I am compelled to share the mysteries of God's salvation with others, as I believe it is the only way to attain eternal life in Heaven. By spreading the message of God's love and redemption, I hope to inspire others to seek a deeper relationship with Him and experience the transformative power of His grace.

Daily I pray that my commitment to studying the Law of the Lord and sharing His mysteries stems from a profound faith and devotion to living a life that is Spirit-led God-inspired Christ-fed. Amen. Each day, I am humbled by His unconditional love and unwavering presence in my life, motivating me to continue seeking His truth and sharing the message of salvation with others. I am grateful for the spiritual growth and enlightenment that this practice has brought me, and I am confident that it will continue to shape my journey towards a closer relationship with God. 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.

I am a poet obedient to Christ,

**Law of the Lord Study**

Each morning I rise before the sun,

To study the Law of the Lord, the Holy One.

In the quiet stillness before the day begins,

I seek forgiveness for my many sins.

With open heart and mind, I delve into His word,

Seeking wisdom and guidance, my spirit stirred.

I utter the poetry of my soul, a song of praise,

To the One who fills my days with grace.

I ask for understanding, for knowledge to see,

The path He has laid out vividly before me.

To walk in His ways, to follow His light,

To spread His love and truth, shining bright.

Each day I rise, with purpose and zeal,

To study and learn, to pray and to feel.

May His Salvation spirit fill me, guide me each day,

As I strive to live in His holy way. Amen.

God gave me a ride

When I needed a hand

Something I never deny

Daily Mass is my demand

Learned how at an early age

Prayer a gift from my mum

Praying family together our rage

Children protect God your turn

Priest was my desire

Passing the exam

A seminary became my fire

Prayers all would understand

Prayer is now my life

Matrimony I would embrace

The temple of God without strife

My life filled with his grace

The Franciscans I once enjoyed

Leper colony I was assigned

A sickness had me totally annoyed

Two years of recovery confined

Decision was made without procrastination

Priesthood was not for me

New York was my destination

Freedom journey I would see

I met Lynn my soulmate in Christ

Her wisdom beyond measure

Lifelong love would always suffice

A baby girl would soon be our pleasure

Miracle baby was born

A nurse her profession

God’s grace is her norm

Trust in Christ her confession

Without prayer my life would be incomplete

A study of love and grace

Language of love my daily feet

Prayer of the Lord across my face

My mum I honor as the prayer teacher I can trace
