Pray for a speedy recovery from surgery for Bishop Dan Herzog and strength and rest for his wife Carol.

And seeing the multitudes, He went up on a mountain, and when He was seated His disciples came to Him. Then He opened His mouth and taught them, saying: Matthew 5:1-2 (NKJV)
     Jesus, help me receive your teaching.

"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:3 (NKJV)
     Lord, I have known poverty of spirit; help me enter the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. Matthew 5:4 (NKJV)
     Father, I continue to mourn; please comfort me with your Holy Spirit.

Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. Matthew 5:5 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, slip into my life day by day and gentle my spirit. I want to enter into the inheritance you have for me.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled. Matthew 5:6 (NKJV)
     Lord, I long to see you put things to right in your church and in this nation. Fill us up with your Holy Spirit.

Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy. Matthew 5:7 (NKJV)
     Jesus, set me free from anger and resentment and let me live in your mercy.

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. Matthew 5:8 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, let your living waters wash me clean and give me purity of heart.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. Matthew 5:9 (NKJV)
     Father, let me live in your peace and be a peace-maker.

Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:10 (NKJV)
     Jesus, I pray for the future you have for me. Whatever the cost, I want to follow you. Thank you.

A Word Received: Walk in my ways and leave fear behind.

Pray for a speedy recovery from surgery for Bishop Dan Herzog and strength and rest for his wife Carol.

Pray for a move of the Holy Spirit at the Diocesan Convention June 8-10 and the General Convention of the Episcopal Church July 5-13 in Austin, Texas.

Then the apostles gathered to Jesus and told Him all things, both what they had done and what they had taught. Mark 6:30 (NKJV)
     Jesus, please help me report in with you as your apostles did.

And He said to them, "Come aside by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while." For there were many coming and going, and they did not even have time to eat. So they departed to a deserted place in the boat by themselves. Mark 6:31-32 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, please help me come aside to a place of rest.

And Jesus, when He came out, saw a great multitude and was moved with compassion for them, because they were like sheep not having a shepherd. So He began to teach them many things. Mark 6:34 (NKJV)
     Lord, there are so many sheep without shepherds; have mercy on them.

And when He had taken the five loaves and the two fish, He looked up to heaven, blessed and broke the loaves, and gave them to His disciples to set before them; and the two fish He divided among them all. So they all ate and were filled. Mark 6:41-42 (NKJV)
     Father, please help me look to you as Jesus did to provide my daily bread.

And this is the promise that He has promised us--eternal life. 1 John 2:25 (NKJV)
     Jesus, help me fully enter into your promises.

Your testimonies are very sure; holiness adorns Your house, O LORD, forever. Psalm 93:5 (NKJV)
     LORD, thank you for your testimonies. Let holiness adorn your house forever.

A Word Received: I Am with you in all your sorrows and pain.

"The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, by the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles: the people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, and upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death Light has dawned." Matthew 4:15-16 (NKJV)
     Father, we are a people sitting in darkness; let your light shine on us.

And Jesus, walking by the Sea of Galilee, saw two brothers, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. Then He said to them, "Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men." They immediately left their nets and followed Him. Matthew 4:18-20 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, help us respond immediately as Peter and "Andrew did.

Going on from there, He saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets. He called them, and immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed Him. Matthew 4:21-22 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, help us immediately leave behind everything as James and John did.

Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. Colossians 2:8 (NKJV)
     Father, I pray for the Diocesan Convention and the General Convention that there will be no preaching of empty philosophy.

Therefore, if you died with Christ from the basic principles of the world, why, as though living in the world, do you subject yourselves to regulations-- "Do not touch, do not taste, do not handle," which all concern things which perish with the using--according to the commandments and doctrines of men? These things indeed have an appearance of wisdom in self-imposed religion, false humility, and neglect of the body, but are of no value against the indulgence of the flesh. Colossians 2:20-23 (NKJV)
     Jesus, set us free from the commandments and doctrines of men.

So Moses came and told the people all the words of the LORD and all the judgments. And all the people answered with one voice and said, "All the words which the LORD has said we will do." Exodus 24:3 (NKJV)
     LORD, help me do your word.

Give to the LORD, O families of the peoples, give to the LORD glory and strength. Give to the LORD the glory due His name; bring an offering, and come into His courts. Oh, worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness! Tremble before Him, all the earth. Psalm 96:7-9 (NKJV)
     LORD, help me freely give to you and worship you.

A Word Received: Long for the day of my visitation.

Prayer table/Jail report, St. Ann's Amsterdam, April 16, 2018
     DCN ALAN and DCN MARYCAROL -- The Prayer Table ministry and the ministry of Services From the Reserved Sacrament at the Montgomery County Correctional Facility went extremely well again this past Monday, April 16. We would like to relay to you prayer warriors what went on and how people were touched by God.
     Prayer Table -- Once again, James Bryant and Alan held the table indoors in the Parish Hall. Despite heavy rain, about 20 people came and enjoyed the opportunity for anointing and prayer, the free non-perishable food we offer and the free, clean used (sometimes new!) clothing we offer. CORDELIA, LYDIA and CONSUELA all came for individual prayer.
     Montgomery County Correctional Facility -- We (we deacons plus Anne DeGroff) were delighted this evening that three women came to their service. (The last two Mondays, no women chose to attend.) We also had 22 men come to the three services in their pods. We sensed a real theme of camaraderie this evening; the men, especially, instead of asking for prayer for themselves asked for prayer for the blessings of their fellow inmates. There were also plenty of prayer concerns for family members back home whom, of course, they miss. Our discussions of the readings of the day (third Sunday of Easter) were very productive. We talked quite a while about the need to forgive and be forgiven. One man (Germain) asked for God to give him the gift of making good decisions when he is released later this week. He is going back home to Syracuse and is eager to star life anew there. Another man (Esteban) asked for prayer for Jesus to watch over him. Next week he is transferring to a state facility to finish up his sentence before returning home in 30 days. The following inmates asked for your prayers for themselves and for those noted: Harry (and Marybeth), Boyd (and Alexia, Elle and Patricia), Michael, Eric (and family and the Fort Johnson Fire Dept.), Daniel (for children and families affected by gas attacks in Syria), David (and Trisha), Carlos (and Rhonda), Christian, Daniel (and family), Anthony (and family), John (and Sara), Anthony (and the Flores family), Dylan, Nelson, Dante (and Jarey and Montana), Luis, Jose, Pedro (and family), Anna (and Mike and all the sick and suffering in the world), Amy (and her children and her fiancé.)

Pray for a speedy recovery from surgery for Bishop Dan Herzog and strength and rest for his wife Carol.

Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry. Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, "If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread." But He answered and said, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.' " Matthew 4:1-4 (NKJV)
     Jesus, when the tempter comes to us, help us respond as you did by turning to your word in Scripture.

Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, "If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down. For it is written: 'He shall give His angels charge over you,' and, 'In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.' " Jesus said to him, "It is written again, 'You shall not tempt the LORD your God.' " Matthew 4:5-7 (NKJV)
     Father, protect us from the folly of tempting you.

Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him, "All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me." Then Jesus said to him, "Away with you, Satan! For it is written, 'You shall worship the LORD your God, and Him only you shall serve.' " Matthew 4:8-10 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, please help us worship you and the Father and Jesus alone and serve only you and them. Guide us into the intimate fellowship you have with the Father and the Son.

Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him. Matthew 4:11 (NKJV)
     LORD, let you holy angels minister to us as well. Thank you.

that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, and attaining to all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the knowledge of the mystery of God, both of the Father and of Christ, Colossians 2:2 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, encourage us and bring us into a close knit fellowship with your saints.

And God spoke all these words, saying: "I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Exodus 20:1-2 (NKJV)
     LORD, thank you for bringing us out of bondage.

You shall have no other gods before Me. Exodus 20:3 (NKJV)
     Father, help us as Jesus did to worship you.

"You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments. Exodus 20:4-6 (NKJV)
     Jesus, set us free from every form of idolatry.

"You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain. Exodus 20:7 (NKJV)
     Holy Trinity, One God, help us bring honor to your name.

"Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it. Exodus 20:8-11 (NKJV)
     LORD, renew in us a reverence for the Sabbath.

"Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the LORD your God is giving you. Exodus 20:12 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, help me honor my parents and all those who have been my spiritual parents.

"You shall not murder. Exodus 20:13 (NKJV)
     Lord, free this nation from murder and killing and worshiping guns.

"You shall not commit adultery. Exodus 20:14 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, help us keep the vows we have made.

"You shall not steal. Exodus 20:15 (NKJV)
     Father, set our hands to honest work.

"You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. Exodus 20:16 (NKJV)
     Jesus, let my "Yea be yea" and my "Nay be nay".

"You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's." Exodus 20:17 (NKJV)
     Jesus, set us free from being swayed by envy and greed and the advertisements that inundate us. Thank you.

A Word Received: Rejoice in my commandments and honor them.

Bishop Dan appears to be doing well and is cheerful.

Therefore, laying aside all malice, all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and all evil speaking, 1 Peter 2:1 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, please help us lay aside these and grow in your fruit.

as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby, 1 Peter 2:2 (NKJV)
     Lord, nourish us with the pure milk of your word.

if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious. 1 Peter 2:3 (NKJV)
     Father, help me daily taste and see that you are gracious.

Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, 1 Peter 2:4 (NKJV)
     Jesus, help me to come to you day by day.

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 2:5 (NKJV)
     Father, help me be a living stone; let me be a spiritual sacrifice.

Therefore it is also contained in the Scripture, "Behold, I lay in Zion A chief cornerstone, elect, precious, And he who believes on Him will by no means be put to shame." 1 Peter 2:6 (NKJV)
     Jesus, you are my cornerstone; build me up in you.

Therefore, to you who believe, He is precious; but to those who are disobedient, "The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief cornerstone," 1 Peter 2:7 (NKJV)
     Father, we are a disobedient people; have mercy on us.

and "A stone of stumbling And a rock of offense." They stumble, being disobedient to the word, to which they also were appointed. 1 Peter 2:8 (NKJV)
     Jesus, many are stumbling; please pick them up again.

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; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy. 1 Peter 2:9-10 (NKJV)
     Thank you, Father, for calling us out of darkness and giving us your light to see by.

who, when He was reviled, did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but committed Himself to Him who judges righteously; who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness--by whose stripes you were healed. 1 Peter 2:23-24 (NKJV)
     Father, help me commit myself to you as Jesus did.

For you were like sheep going astray, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls. 1 Peter 2:25 (NKJV)
     Jesus, you are the shepherd of my soul. Thank you.

A Word Received: I Am the Good Shepherd; continue to look to me for help and guidance.

Please pray for Bishop Dan Herzog who will be having major surgery today, April 17. Pray for strength and peace for his wife, Carol.

But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said to them, "Brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Therefore bear fruits worthy of repentance, Matthew 3:7-8 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, help me bear fruit worthy of repentance.

And even now the ax is laid to the root of the trees. Therefore every tree which does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Matthew 3:10 (NKJV)
     Even now the ax is laid to the root of the tree -- have mercy on us Lord and bring the leaders of the church to repentance.

I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. Matthew 3:11 (NKJV)
     Jesus, please baptize me afresh with your Holy Spirit and with fire.

His winnowing fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clean out His threshing floor, and gather His wheat into the barn; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire." Matthew 3:12 (NKJV)
     I pray for the day of your threshing that none of the wheat will be lost with the chaff. Have mercy on those who have been led astray by lies. Have mercy on your little ones -- the lost and the least.

A Word Received: Come to me; come to me with hope and expectation.

Please pray for Bishop Dan Herzog who will be having major surgery on Tuesday, April 17. Please pray for renewed strength for Carol Herzog.

Pray for a move of the Holy Spirit at the Diocesan Convention June 8-10 and the General Convention of the Episcopal Church July 5-13 in Austin, Texas.

In those days John the Baptist came preaching in the wilderness of Judea, and saying, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!" Matthew 3:1-2 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, please help us hear this call to repentance. Help us daily enter the kingdom of heaven.

For this is he who was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah, saying: "The voice of one crying in the wilderness: 'Prepare the way of the LORD; make His paths straight.' " Matthew 3:3 (NKJV)
     Jesus, help each of us prepare the way for you to come into people's hearts as John did.

Then Jerusalem, all Judea, and all the region around the Jordan went out to him and were baptized by him in the Jordan, confessing their sins. Matthew 3:5-6 (NKJV)
     Lord, authentic gospel preaching will draw the people to you. Let there be more of that among us.

Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for "God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble." Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, 1 Peter 5:5-6 (NKJV)
     Father, clothe us with humility.

casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7 (NKJV)
     Jesus, help me cast all my cares on you. Thank you for caring for me.

Greet one another with a kiss of love. Peace to you all who are in Christ Jesus. Amen. 1 Peter 5:14 (NKJV)
     Jesus, help us enter into your peace. Thank you.

Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart. Rejoice in the LORD, you righteous, and give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name. Psalm 97:11-12 (NKJV)
     LORD, let your light be sown in our hearts. Thank you.

A Word Received: Look to me for help; I Am faithful.
     Thank you for your faithfulness, LORD
