and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name's sake and have not become weary. Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place--unless you repent. Rev 2:3-5 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, help us recover our first love for Jesus.

He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God." ' Rev 2:7 (NKJV)
     Jesus, please give us ears to hear you and hearts to hearken to your word.

"Behold, the days are coming," says the Lord GOD, "That I will send a famine on the land, Not a famine of bread, Nor a thirst for water, But of hearing the words of the LORD. Am 8:11 (NKJV)
     Father, we are in such a famine; haver mercy on us and make your word shine forth among us. Let the rain of your Spirit fall on us and refresh us.

You have tested my heart; You have visited me in the night; You have tried me and have found nothing; I have purposed that my mouth shall not transgress. Concerning the works of men, by the word of Your lips, I have kept away from the paths of the destroyer. Uphold my steps in Your paths, that my footsteps may not slip. Ps 17:3-5 (NKJV)
     Lord Jesus, I long to be nourished by your word; I long to hear you speak to my heart and mind. Thank you.

A Word Received: Look to me when the fields are dry and the crop withers for lack of rain. Look to me and ask for the rain of my Holy Spirit; I will refresh you.

Jesus answered and said to them, "You are mistaken, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God. Mt 22:29 (NKJV)
     Jesus, so much of the church is captive to the wisdom of the world and is mistaken and knows neither the Scriptures nor the power of God. Have mercy on us and lead us through this time.

and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. Rev 1:6 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, please help us enter the ministry you have prepared for each of us to walk in.

"I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End," says the Lord, "who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty." Rev 1:8 (NKJV)
     Lord, be my beginning and my end.

Thus He showed me: Behold, the Lord stood on a wall made with a plumb line, with a plumb line in His hand. And the LORD said to me, "Amos, what do you see?" And I said, "A plumb line." Then the Lord said: "Behold, I am setting a plumb line In the midst of My people Israel; I will not pass by them anymore. The high places of Isaac shall be desolate, And the sanctuaries of Israel shall be laid waste. I will rise with the sword against the house of Jeroboam." Am 7:7-9 (NKJV)
     LORD, you are holding a plumb line to your church and judgment is coming upon us. Have mercy upon us.

I waited patiently for the LORD; And He inclined to me, And heard my cry. He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, Out of the miry clay, And set my feet upon a rock, And established my steps. He has put a new song in my mouth-- Praise to our God; Many will see it and fear, And will trust in the LORD. Ps 40:1-3 (NKJV)
     Jesus, I trust you to deliver us out of the miry clay of worldly wisdom by the power of your Holy Spirit. Thank you.

A Word Received: Find your rest in me and not in the world's toys. I Am coming and it will be a time of distress as the foundation stones are laid bare for me to rebuild my church. The rubble must be cleared away so that I may rebuild my church.

     A Word Received: Pray for my people to come to me, the fountain of living waters.

     Jesus, I come, and I pray for your people as you desire.

Why do you spend money for what is not bread, and your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, and let your soul delight itself in abundance. Isa 55:2 (NKJV)

Jesus entered the temple courts, and, while he was teaching, the chief priests and the elders of the people came to him. "By what authority are you doing these things?" they asked. "And who gave you this authority?" Mt 21:23 (NIV)
     Holy Spirit, please help the chief priests and elders of the Episcopal Church submit to the authority of Jesus.

"What do you think? There was a man who had two sons. He went to the first and said, 'Son, go and work today in the vineyard.' "'I will not,' he answered, but later he changed his mind and went. "Then the father went to the other son and said the same thing. He answered, 'I will, sir,' but he did not go. "Which of the two did what his father wanted?" "The first," they answered. Jesus said to them, "I tell you the truth, the tax collectors and the prostitutes are entering the kingdom of God ahead of you. For John came to you to show you the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes did. And even after you saw this, you did not repent and believe him. Mt 21:28-32 (NIV)
     Jesus, help us make the choice to obey our Father in heaven.

Dear friends, this is now my second letter to you. I have written both of them as reminders to stimulate you to wholesome thinking. I want you to recall the words spoken in the past by the holy prophets and the command given by our Lord and Savior through your apostles. 2Pe 3:1-2 (NIV)
     Holy Spirit, stir up in us a remembrance of all that you have spoken through the holy prophets.

My steps have held to your paths; my feet have not slipped. Ps 17:5 (NIV)
     LORD, keep my feet steady on your path; don’t let me slip.

A Word Received: Look to me when evil appears to triumph; I will win the victory by my cross and resurrection.

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving vacation in the South of France with my son and his family. Torre

Now when they drew near Jerusalem, and came to Bethphage, at the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, "Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Loose them and bring them to Me.And if anyone says anything to you, you shall say, 'The Lord has need of them,' and immediately he will send them." Mt 21:1-3 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, please help me yield up whatever Jesus asks of me.

"Tell the daughter of Zion, 'Behold, your King is coming to you, lowly, and sitting on a donkey, a colt, the foal of a donkey.' " Mt 21:5 (NKJV)
     Jesus, come into our lives more today.

Then the multitudes who went before and those who followed cried out, saying: "Hosanna to the Son of David! 'Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!' Hosanna in the highest!" Mt 21:9 (NKJV)
     Hosanna to you, Jesus; you are my Lord.

Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, To the pilgrims of the Dispersion in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia, elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in sanctification of the Spirit, for obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace be multiplied. 1Pe 1:1-2 (NKJV)
     Father, please help me daily be a pilgrim and answer your call.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 1Pe 1:3 (NKJV)
     Father, I bless you. Thank you for the living hope you have given me in Jesus through your Holy Spirit.

I waited patiently for the LORD; and He inclined to me, and heard my cry. He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my steps. He has put a new song in my mouth -- praise to our God; many will see it and fear, and will trust in the LORD. Ps 40:1-3 (NKJV)
     Thank you, LORD, for pulling me out of the miry clay of sin and have given me songs to sing and established my steps.

I have not hidden Your righteousness within my heart; I have declared Your faithfulness and Your salvation; I have not concealed Your lovingkindness and Your truth From the great assembly. Ps 40:10 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, help me declare your righteousness to others.

A Word Received: Rejoice in my presence in your life.

Prayer Table and Jail Report, November 25, St. Ann's Amsterdam
     DEACON ALAN and DEACON MARYCAROL -- Reporting in to you prayer warriors concerning the neighborhood ministries of Prayer Table in our Parish Hall and the Services From the Reserved Sacrament at the Montgomery County Correctional Facility that occurred Monday -- November 25. We appreciate all your intercessory prayers and support for these weekly ministries. We couldn't do it without your help.
     Prayer Table -- Seven women and two men came by on this cold, blustery morning as we set up indoors. Just one person wanted prayer and anointing. EBONY asked for prayers for a serious situation. The Lord knows the details. She has come for prayer before and she indicated she is frustrated that God has not answered her yet and she fears He is not listening. But we assured her that prayers are always heard but not always answered right away or in the way we hope they are. We gave out a lot of free clean, used clothing and quite a bit of free, non-perishable food we had in storage.
     MCCF -- We had 11 men attend the three men's services but for the first time ever, no women chose to come. We were told that there are only seven females incarcerated there at present. One man was taken by the words in The Collect which said God will bring together "peoples of the Earth who are divided and enslaved by sin." He said ruefully, "I have had a hard time in my life trying to stay on the right course in the world outside. I will go along well for awhile, doing good things and living the right way, but then I slide back into doing criminal things and committing sins. Then I have to start all over again." We assured this man that he is not alone on this one, and we prayed for him to be strong and keep trying to follow Christ's example. We also talked about the last line of Luke's gospel where Jesus comforts the thief who believes in Him and wants to be remembered when He comes into His kingdom, "Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise." This is proof that is NEVER too late to come to Christ for forgiveness and mercy. There's no such thing as it is "too late" to come to Christ and accept Him as your savior.
     Please pray for these inmates and their loved ones: Carol and Andy, Jeff and Bob, Bob and Laino, Robert and Jackie, Derek, Mykenzie and Penelope, Israel, Seth, Brittany, Marilyn, Isabelle and James, Jeff, Neville and Ariana, Berrios and Sarai, Cathlene and Joshua.
God bless you all and have a Happy Thanksgiving!

2019 11 21

At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, "Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?" Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, and said, "Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Mt 18:1-4 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, please help us see things from Jesus’ perspective. Bring us to the conversion he desires for us.

Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me. Mt 18:5 (NKJV)
     Jesus, please help me receive the children you send to me.

"But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe to the world because of offenses! For offenses must come, but woe to that man by whom the offense comes! Mt 18:6-7 (NKJV)
     Father, there are many out there causing your little ones to stumble and fall; have mercy on us.

If your hand or foot causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you. It is better for you to enter into life lame or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet, to be cast into the everlasting fire. And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you. It is better for you to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes, to be cast into hell fire. Mt 18:8-9 (NKJV)
     Jesus, help me abandon anything that keeps me from the kingdom of God.

There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever. Rev 22:5 (NKJV)
     Father, you are my light. Help me to see, Jesus. Guide my steps.

He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him be righteous still; he who is holy, let him be holy still." Rev 22:11 (NKJV)
     Jesus, bring me to righteousness and holiness.

And the Spirit and the bride say, "Come!" And let him who hears say, "Come!" And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely. Rev 22:17 (NKJV)
     Lord, I come.

And they stood up in their place and read from the Book of the Law of the LORD their God for one-fourth of the day; and for another fourth they confessed and worshiped the LORD their God. Ne 9:3 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, let the hearing of your word bring us to confession of sin.

You also gave Your good Spirit to instruct them, and did not withhold Your manna from their mouth, and gave them water for their thirst. Ne 9:20 (NKJV)
     Jesus, thank you for guiding us by your Spirit and for feeding us in the wilderness with manna and living water.

"But My people would not heed My voice, and Israel would have none of Me. So I gave them over to their own stubborn heart, to walk in their own counsels. Ps 81:11-12 (NKJV)
     Lord, much of the church is walking in stubborn ways and not heeding your word.

A Word Received: I Am the spring of living water; drink of me.
