· I read a letter written to God by an American boy. He wrote:
I am an American, what about You?”
In every prayer we cry, “Our Father Who art in heaven.” He is our heavenly Father who grants us the citizenship of heaven by being his children.
Grant me Your citizenship, O the heavenly!
I am proud of my nationality as an Egyptian and of my church, as an Orthodox in beliefs.
When You carry me to You I shall have Your citizenship, O the heavenly.
Through Your church I get my heavenly passport.
Your Bible trains me for the language of heaven which is Love.
Your fiery Holy Spirit carries my heart to my heavenly home.
When are You coming to me?
Or when shall I go to You to dwell with You forever.
The Goose with the Golden Eggs
