Prayers of Christians (No.1)

Prayers of Christians is a new feature of this site; its purpose is to encourage a life of devotion and praise to Jesus on a day to day basis.  The compositions are new and are meant to stimulate a devoted posture toward God, fellow Christians and all whom we meet in our everyday lives.  It is hoped that we come to know the God who saved us by a continual reflection upon his Word and by a life that shines as a city on a hill.  Your participation in future prayer compositions for this purpose are welcome.  Thankyou!

Bless the Lord, O My Soul!

You are kind.7

Let the glory of Your crucifixion be my trial to share.8 And may Your sacred sacrifice (for me) not be in vain.9 Amen.
