Amazing gift of life

“Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, to all the exiles whom I have sent into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon: Build houses and live in them; plant gardens and eat their produce. Take wives and have sons and daughters; take wives for your sons, and give your daughters in marriage, that they may bear sons and daughters; multiply there, and do not decrease. But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare.” (Jeremiah 29:4-7 ESV)

так говорит Господь Саваоф, Бог Израилев, всем пленникам, которых Я переселил из Иерусалима в Вавилон: стройте домы и живите [в них], и разводите сады и ешьте плоды их; берите жен и рождайте сыновей и дочерей; и сыновьям своим берите жен и дочерей своих отдавайте в замужество, чтобы они рождали сыновей и дочерей, и размножайтесь там, а не умаляйтесь; и заботьтесь о благосостоянии города, в который Я переселил вас, и молитесь за него Господу; ибо при благосостоянии его и вам будет мир. (Иеремия 29:4-7 Russian)

O LORD God Almighty ~ thank you dear Heavenly Father for the amazing gift of life that we never take for granted. As you have faithfully led us in the past, help all children of faith in your beloved Son to remain faithful in all circumstances. Renew our trusting faith in your word that always comes true. Give joy to leaders in the Church so that no matter what evil may be plotted against Christians, we will always exalt and obey Christ, our blessed Savior and Lord. We fervently pray in the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
