imconfident

I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

Remembrance Day

on November 12, 2013

Inflandersfieldslestweforget01.JPGToday was Remembrance Day in all  Commonwealth countries, a day to remember all the members of the armed forces who died in the line of duty since the First World War.

There have been numerous wars and battles in countries around the world for centuries, and we should all take some time to remember the thousands upon thousands of men and women who have died trying to bring freedom.

We should also be praying for peace in the world.  Here is one that was written by William Temple   (1881-1944).

Prayer For Peace Among Nations
O Almighty Godthe Father of all humanity,
turn, we pray, the hearts of all peoples and their rulers,
that by the power of your Holy Spirit
peace may be established among the nations
on the foundation of justice, righteousness and truth;
through him who was lifted up on the cross
to draw all people to himself,  your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
