28 When He had said this, He went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem. 29 And it came to pass, when He came near to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mountain called Olivet, that He sent two of His disciples, 30 saying, "Go into the village opposite you, where as you enter you will find a colt tied, on which no one has ever sat. Loose it and bring it here. 31 And if anyone asks you, 'Why are you loosing it?' thus you shall say to him, 'Because the Lord has need of it.' " Luke 19:28-31 (NKJV)
     Jesus, send us on ahead to prepare the way for you. Send us your Holy Spirit to do this.

37 Then, as He was now drawing near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works they had seen, 38 saying: "'Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the LORD!' Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!" Luke 19:37-38 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, help us rejoice and praise Jesus as he comes into our lives.

9 And He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness." Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2 Corinthians 12:9 (NKJV)
     9 "The hands of Zerubbabel Have laid the foundation of this temple; His hands shall also finish it. Then you will know That the LORD of hosts has sent Me to you. Zechariah 4:9 (NKJV)

10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ's sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong. 2 Corinthians 12:10 (NKJV)
     Father, help us daily find our strength in Jesus and his Holy Sppirit

1 "Ho! Everyone who thirsts, Come to the waters; And you who have no money, Come, buy and eat. Yes, come, buy wine and milk Without money and without price. Isaiah 55:1 (NKJV)
     LORD, I thirst for more of you in my life.
     A Word Received: Pray for my people to come to me, the fountain of living waters.

12 For God is my King from of old, Working salvation in the midst of the earth. Psalm 74:12 (NKJV)
     Jesus, you are my King and Savior.

22 Arise, O God, plead Your own cause; Remember how the foolish man reproaches You daily. 23 Do not forget the voice of Your enemies; The tumult of those who rise up against You increases continually. Psalm 74:22-23 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, let your cleansing fire revive your church and your people.

A Word Received: Draw nearer to me; lay your burdens at my feet. I can carry what you cannnot.

Pray for Bishop Bill and this diocese that we will all draw nearer to Jesus in this time of trial.

20 Once, having been asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, "The kingdom of God does not come with your careful observation, 21 nor will people say, 'Here it is,' or 'There it is,' because the kingdom of God is within you." Luke 17:20-21 (NIV)
     Holy Spirit, help us experience the kingdom of God within our hearts and minds

26 "Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. 27 People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all. Luke 17:26-27 (NIV)
     Jesus,as it was then and so it is in our day. Peole cling to the familiar and miss out on the kingdom life.

28 "It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. 29 But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all. 30 "It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed. Luke 17:28-30 (NIV)
     Father, help us seek out your will rather than try to return to what was before.

32 Remember Lot's wife! Luke 17:32 (NIV)
     Jesus, help us not be like Lot's wife: looking back to what was before to our destruction.

1 Since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God. 2 Corinthians 7:1 (NIV)
     Jesus, help us live out your promises.

6 But God, who comforts the downcast, comforted us by the coming of Titus, 7 and not only by his coming but also by the comfort you had given him. He told us about your longing for me, your deep sorrow, your ardent concern for me, so that my joy was greater than ever. 2 Corinthians 7:6-7 (NIV)
     Father, thank you for the consolations you bring us by our companionship in your Holy Spirit.

4 It is the LORD your God you must follow, and him you must revere. Keep his commands and obey him; serve him and hold fast to him. Deuteronomy 13:4 (NIV)
     Jesus, help me walk after your ways. Help me follow you wherevver you lead me.

5 Why should I fear when evil days come, when wicked deceivers surround me-- 6 those who trust in their wealth and boast of their great riches? 7 No man can redeem the life of another or give to God a ransom for him-- 8 the ransom for a life is costly, no payment is ever enough-- 9 that he should live on forever and not see decay. Psalm 49:5-9 (NIV)
     Jesus, you alone are able to pay the price of our redemption. Thank you.

1 I was glad when they said to me, "Let us go into the house of the LORD." Psalm 122:1 (NKJV)

A Word Received: Leave the burdens of church and state in my hands. I AM able to do what you cannot. Read my word to understand what in coming for those who trust in their sight and power.

Note from charlotte rundell
     Just wanted you to know the Dallas intercessors have been and are praying for Bishop Love and Diocese of Albany. Some of us have been unseen intercessors with you all since the Lent and Beyond days. We prayed with you through Primate’s Meetings and several General Conventions. What a journey! There is always a faithful remnant. May God strengthen you all as intercessors as you put on the full armor of Jesus. We are called for such a time as this. Thank you for keeping me on your list. Please tell Bishop Love the Dallas intercessors are praying for him. May the Blood of Christ strengthen you in all goodness.
     Courage in Jesus,
     Under the Mercy,

11 Now it happened as He went to Jerusalem that He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12 Then as He entered a certain village, there met Him ten men who were lepers, who stood afar off. Luke 17 (NKJV)
     Lord, so many stand afar off thinking there is no hope for them - that they are condemned to isolation of body and spirit.

13 And they lifted up their voices and said, "Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!" Luke 17 (NKJV)
     Jesus, hear the cries of those who lift their voices pleading for healing and mercy.

14 So when He saw them, He said to them, "Go, show yourselves to the priests." And so it was that as they went, they were cleansed. 15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God, 16 and fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks. And he was a Samaritan. Luke 17 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, help us remember to return to Jesus and give him thanks for what he has done.

17 So Jesus answered and said, "Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? 18 Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?" 19 And He said to him, "Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well." Luke 17 (NKJV)
     Father, thank you for inviting me into your kingdom life.

4 But in all things we commend ourselves as ministers of God: in much patience, in tribulations, in needs, in distresses, 5 in stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labors, in sleeplessness, in fastings; 6 by purity, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Spirit, by sincere love, 7 by the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left, 2 Corinthians 6:4-7 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, help us remember those who labor for the gospel in pain and suffering. Help us remembe the suffering church.

25 In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes. Judges 21:25 (NKJV)
     Jesus, so few acknowledge you as King and Savior and do what is right in their own sight.

1 Oh, clap your hands, all you peoples! Shout to God with the voice of triumph! 2 For the LORD Most High is awesome; He is a great King over all the earth. 3 He will subdue the peoples under us, And the nations under our feet. Psalm 47:1-3 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, subdue our unruly affections.

7 For God is the King of all the earth; Sing praises with understanding. Psalm 47:7 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, help us praise you with understanding.

21 And Elijah came to all the people, and said, "How long will you falter between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him." But the people answered him not a word. 1 Kings 18:21 (NKJV)
     A Word Received: Make the choice: have me as Lord and Savior, or not at all. Do not falter between two opinions.

Note from Torre: I fear that we are going to pay a terrible price in shutting down our churches and fellowships at the government's order. We accepted being "non-essential" and God is not mocked.

New Date Set for Bishop Love’s Hearing
“The Episcopal Church vs. The Rt. Rev. William H. Love”

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

I recently received word that a new date has been set for my Hearing / Trial: The Episcopal Church vs. The Rt. Rev. William H. Love. It is scheduled for Friday, June 12, 2020, starting at 9:00 a.m. EST.It is not expected to last beyond 5:00 p.m. that same day.The Hearing will be conducted through a Zoom Meeting format.

I have been told by the Rt. Rev. Nicholas Knisely, Convener of the Hearing Panel, that given the technology being used, “we will be able to have many people watch the Hearing if they desire.”Unfortunately, the exact details regarding how observers can watch the Hearing have not yet been revealed.Once we have received that information, it will be shared with the Diocese of Albany and wider community.Please note that while the Canons require that the Hearing be “open” to the public, it is under the control and direction of the Hearing Panel.

I want to thank all of you who have been holding me and my family and the Diocese of Albany up in your prayers these past many months. It is greatly appreciated and means more than you know.Whatever the outcome of the Hearing, my prayer is that God’s will and purpose will be accomplished.

Faithfully Yours in Christ,


The Rt. Rev. William H. Love
Bishop of Albany

Pray that we will BE the church rather than just GO to church.Holy Spirit help us live out the Great Commandment and the Great Commission.

Jesus help us welcome every lost sheep that comes into the flock and be good shepherds of them.

Holy Spirit, help us seek out all that Jesus is calling us to do and be.

Help us, as Jesus does, to listen with compassion to the pain in other people’s lives.

Father, help us enter the life of your living word in Scripture and be shaped by your word.

Jesus, let reading Scripture lead us into a new and deeper life of prayer.

Jesus, help us take in the spirit of the Beatitudes and come to you in humility.Help us repent of all self-righteousness and pride.

From the Book of Common Prayer:

19.For the President of the United States and all in Civil Authority

O Lord our Governor, whose glory is in all the world:We commend this nation to thy merciful care, that, being guided by thy Providence, we may dwell secure in thy peace.Grant to the President of the United States, the Governor of this State (or Commonwealth), and to all in authority, wisdom and strength to know and to do thy will. Fill them with the love of truth and righteousness, and make them ever mindful of their calling to serve this people in thy fear; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end.Amen.

21.For Courts of Justice

Almighty God, who sittest in the throne judging right: We humbly beseech thee to bless the courts of justice and the magistrates in all this land; and give unto them the spirit of wisdom and understanding, that they may discern the truth, and impartially administer the law in the fear of thee alone; through him who shall come to be our Judge, thy Son our Savior Jesus Christ.Amen.

27.For Social Justice

Grant, O God, that your holy and life giving Spirit may so move every human heart [and especially the hearts of the people of this land], that barriers which divide us may crumble, suspicions disappear, and hatreds cease; that our divisions being healed, we may live in justice and peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord.Amen.

28.In Times of Conflict

O God, you have bound us together in a common life. Help us, in the midst of our struggles for justice and truth, to confront one another without hatred or bitterness, and to work together with mutual forbearance and respect; through Jesus Christ our Lord.Amen.

30.For the Unemployed

Heavenly Father, we remember before you those who suffer want and anxiety from lack of work. Guide the people of this land so to use our public and private wealth that all may find suitable and fulfilling employment, and receive just payment for their labor; through Jesus Christ our Lord.Amen.

35.For the Poor and the Neglected

Almighty and most merciful God, we remember before you all poor and neglected persons whom it would be easy for us to forget:the homeless and the destitute, the old and the sick, and all who have none to care for them. Help us to heal those who are broken in body or spirit, and to turn their sorrow into joy. Grant this, Father, for the love of your Son, who for our sake became poor, Jesus Christ our Lord.Amen.

49.For the Aged

Look with mercy, O God our Father, on all whose increasing years bring them weakness, distress, or isolation.Provide for them homes of dignity and peace; give them understanding helpers, and the willingness to accept help; and, as their strength diminishes, increase their faith and their assurance of your love.This we ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.Amen.

2020 05 31 The Day of Pentecost

Holy Spirit, lead us through the wilderness of the Church with the fire and power of your love.


1 When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. Acts 2 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, restore us to unity of worship and place.

2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Acts 2 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, fill your church with you sanctifying, cleansing praise and prayer.

3 Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. Acts 2 (NKJV)
     Jesus, let tongues of fire from your Holy Spirit settle on us.

4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Acts 2 (NKJV)
     Father, pour out on us the gifts of your Holy Spirit. Help us speak your word as you give us utterance.

5 And there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men, from every nation under heaven. Acts 2 (NKJV)
     Holy Ghost, bring together devout men and women to respond to your move among us.

6 And when this sound occurred, the multitude came together, and were confused, because everyone heard them speak in his own language. Acts 2 (NKJV)
     Father, let the sound of tongues of men and angels be heard among us.

7 Then they were all amazed and marveled, saying to one another, "Look, are not all these who speak Galileans? Acts 2 (NKJV)
     Jesus, amaze us with what you can do among and through us with your Holy Spirit.

8 And how is it that we hear, each in our own language in which we were born? 9 Parthians and Medes and Elamites, those dwelling in Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya adjoining Cyrene, visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, 11 Cretans and Arabs--we hear them speaking in our own tongues the wonderful works of God." Acts 2 (NKJV)
     Draw the men and women of every nation to hear your word, Holy Spirit.

12 So they were all amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, "Whatever could this mean?" Acts 2 (NKJV)
     Jesus, fill us with wonder at your presence in the Holy Spirit.

13 Others mocking said, "They are full of new wine." 14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, raised his voice and said to them, "Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and heed my words. 15 For these are not drunk, as you suppose, since it is only the third hour of the day. 16 But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: 17 'And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams. 18 And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; And they shall prophesy. 19 I will show wonders in heaven above And signs in the earth beneath: Blood and fire and vapor of smoke. 20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, And the moon into blood, Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the LORD. 21 And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the LORD Shall be saved.Acts 2 (NKJV)

     Father, let your word and Spirit be fulfilled in us.

A Word Received: Hope for more of my Holy Spirit in your life and the life of your congregation.

2020 05 30 Eve of Pentecost

As a preparation for the Day of Pentecost, enter into a season of worship. Let the words of these hymns sink into your souls.



18 While He spoke these things to them, behold, a ruler came and worshiped Him, saying, "My daughter has just died, but come and lay Your hand on her and she will live." Matthew 9:18 (NKJV)
     Jesus, I worship you and must tell you that much of your daughter, the Church, has died. But come and place your hand on us and anoint us with your Holy Spirit and we shall live.

20 And suddenly, a woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years came from behind and touched the hem of His garment. 21 For she said to herself, "If only I may touch His garment, I shall be made well." 22 But Jesus turned around, and when He saw her He said, "Be of good cheer, daughter; your faith has made you well." And the woman was made well from that hour. Matthew 9:20-22 (NKJV)
     Lord Jesus, we reach out to you in hope and pray that our faith will bring us to healing.

4 Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, 5 you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2:4-5 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, build us up into a spiritual house. Bless the women who are summer interns with the Sisters of St. Mary. Bless and protect Bishop Bill as he faces trial for his faith in you and your word.

9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 1 Peter 2:9 (NKJV)
     Lord, you have chosen this generation to bear witness to you. Make us a holy nation for your praise.

27 Then they came to Elim, where there were twelve wells of water and seventy palm trees; so they camped there by the waters. Exodus 15:27 (NKJV)
     Father, bring us to a time of Elim springs where we may find refreshing waters in your Spirit.

1 Rejoice in the LORD, O you righteous! For praise from the upright is beautiful. 2 Praise the LORD with the harp; Make melody to Him with an instrument of ten strings. 3 Sing to Him a new song; Play skillfully with a shout of joy. 4 For the word of the LORD is right, And all His work is done in truth. Psalm 33:1-4 (NKJV)
     LORD, your word is truth; you are the truth. Help us rejoice in you.

A Word Received: I rejoice in yu as you come into my presence and praise and worship me. Do not let the evil on snatch away what I am giving you. Pray that you will discover your vocation in me.

2020 05 29

9 As Jesus passed on from there, He saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax office. And He said to him, "Follow Me." So he arose and followed Him. Matthew 9:9 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, help me follow Jesus at his word.

10 Now it happened, as Jesus sat at the table in the house, that behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and sat down with Him and His disciples. Matthew 9:10 (NKJV)
     Jesus, help us welcome the tax collectors and sinners who come seeking you.

11 And when the Pharisees saw it, they said to His disciples, "Why does your Teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?" Matthew 9:11 (NKJV)
     Father, help us repent of being Pharisees.

12 When Jesus heard that, He said to them, "Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. Matthew 9:12 (NKJV)

     Pray for widows, widowers, and those who walk alone.

13 But go and learn what this means: 'I desire mercy and not sacrifice.' For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance." Matthew 9:13 (NKJV)
     Jesus, in your mercy, help me, a sinner, repent.

6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. 7 Therefore do not be partakers with them. Ephesians 5:6-7 (NKJV)
     Father, many of your people have been deceived by empty words. Keep us from thoser words and works.

13 But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. 14 Therefore He says: "Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light." 15 See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, Ephesians 5:13-15 (NKJV)
     Lord, help people wake to new life in Christ Jesus.

31 "Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah-- 32 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them, says the LORD. 33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. Jeremiah 31:31-33 (NKJV)
     LORD, help me enter fully into this new covenant in your Spirit.

1 Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. 2 Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy, Psalm 107:1-2 (NKJV)
     Thank you, Lord, for paying the cost of my redemption.

3 And gathered out of the lands, From the east and from the west, From the north and from the south. Psalm 107:3 (NKJV)
     Thank you, Jesus, for enfolding me in your flock.

A Word Received: Pray to fully enter the new covenant in my Holy Spirit. I long to enter your hearts.
