    26 July 2015 – Sheltering

    26 July 2015 – Sheltering
    July 26, 2015 Hazel Parsons

    26 July 2015


    The grandchildren came to visit
    They love my special shelves
    Filled with books and gifts from loved ones.
    When they had gone
    I found they had assembled these things together
    And, Lord, I smiled and thanked you for the gift
    Of children and of insight.

    Here, sheltering beneath the Cross are the sheep
    Sheep of your flock
    Or dare I say it, any sheep in need of shelter?

    Here, leaning against the Rock the sheep
    Find shelter from inclement weather,
    Peace in the storm.

    Lord Jesus, you taught us to see with the eyes of children.
    These little ones did not know what they offered
    But you give us eyes to use
    To see you in their gifts
    To us
    How wonderful is that!

    This week we
    Pray for all your little ones
    Holding their laughter and their tears
    In your love and care
    For the sake of Jesus.

    Hazel Parsons

    Reading: Psalm 121

     From July 2015 the prayers will be written and illustrated by Hazel Parsons of the Plymouth and Exeter District.  We hope that you will be able to use the prayer, reading and suggested hymn in various settings, on your own or with others.
