Oxford Book of Prayer, Book of Isaiah, David Haas, John M. Neale, Anonymous

Dear Readers,

With gratitude for those who step forward to risk
everything for their country; with appreciation to
their families who miss them so much; and with
humble, prayerful love for all those gave the final
sacrifice. We lift you up into Light, Peace and Joy.

On this, Memorial Day, thank you. We remember.

 Elijah receiving bread from the angel    
Elijah Receiving Bread and Water From an Angel by Peter Paul Rubens (circa 1625)

From that which we fear, O Lord, make us fearless.
O bounteous One, assist us with your aid.
Drive far the malevolent, the foeman.
May the atmosphere we breathe
breathe the fearlessness into us:
fearlessness on earth
and fearlessness in heaven!
May fearlessness guard us
behind and before!
God the Rescuer,
God the Savior,
Almighty, whom always we joyfully adore,
powerful God,
invoked by all men,
may he, the bounteous, grant us his blessings!

From The Oxford Book of Prayer


When you pass through water, I am with you;
through rivers, they will not wash you away;
when you walk through fire, you will not be singed,
and no flame will burn you.
For I am Hashem your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior...

Isaiah 43: 2-3
The Stone Edition Tanach


Fear not, for I am with you,
be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
I will uphold you with my victorious right hand.

Isaiah 41:10
The Holy Bible
Revised Standard Edition


Tobias and the Angel
Tobias and the Angel from the school of Verrocchio

I will come to you in the silence,
I will lift you from all your fear.
You will hear my voice,
I claim you as my choice,
be still, and know I am here.

Do not be afraid, I am with you.
I have called you each by name.
Come and follow me,
I will bring you home;
I love you and you are mine.

Verse 1 and Refrain from "You Are Mine,"
Lyrics by David Haas
G.I.A. Publications, Inc., 1991


Lord, give Thy angels every day
Command to guide us on our way.
And bid them every evening keep
Their watch around us while we sleep.
So shall no wicked thing draw near,
To do us harm or cause us fear;
And we shall dwell, when life is past,
With Angels round Thy Throne at last.

John M. Neale (1818-1866)
Lutheran Hymn
Verses 3 & 4


The Last Word:

Fear not tomorrow,
for God is already there.





























































Not-so-Utterly Random Bonus Quote:

The greatest glory of a free-born people is to transmit that freedom to their children.

William Havard (1889-1956)
