Dear Bruce, I continue to connect with you daily, but I’m still not comfortable with you leaving God the Father out of your closing blessing. I recall your reasoning from an earlier reflection about the feminine aspect of God & about God the Father coming from a patriarchal society from long ago, but I believe that the sign of the cross should include God as Father. We also baptize in the Name of the Father, the Son & Holy Spirit 🙂 Please respond. Thank you for all you do in your ministry. From Sally

Hi Sally Thanks for your message. I am wondering if you might be confusing me with someone else as I always include God the Father in every concluding prayer I say in the Daily Devotionals. I just checked this Daily – The Seven Steps of Preparation and I did include God the Father. Jesus said to ask the Father in my name for our needs. John 16:33.

My apologies Bruce! I was thrown off when I heard “in the name of Jesus”—my aging brain missed “Father we make this prayer—” More familiar with “In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. I ask for your forgiveness, Thank you again for your beautiful ministry. I’m with you daily 🙂

Hello Sally Ann

I am so glad you are enjoying the Daily Devotionals. The reflections help me in my walk with God each day also.

Good bless

Bruce

Bruce I have subscribed several times to receive your devotions every day in my email. I also signed up for your weight loss plan and for this lent. I have yet to get any emails from you. Last year when I first found you, I got them for a few weeks then they stopped. When I wrote about it, I was told I had unsubscribed, but I never did, and I have subscribed again but to no avail. I receive Rosemary’s emails regularly. Please see what is wrong so I can get your information and join in daily. I enjoy… Read more »
