Remember the word to your servant, upon which you have caused me to hope. (Psalm 119:49)
      LORD, I live in hope because of your word to your people.

This is my comfort in my affliction, for your word has given me life. (Psalm 119:50)
      Jesus, your words are words of life.

The proud have me in great derision, yet I do not turn aside from your law. (Psalm 119:51)
      Holy Spirit, you are my daily guide and strength, you sustain me when the proud hold me in derision.

I remembered your judgments of old, O LORD, and have comforted myself. (Psalm 119:52)
      Father, your word in Scripture brings my daily comfort. Thank you.

Indignation has taken hold of me because of the wicked, who forsake your law. (Psalm 119:53)
      Though I am indignant at the evil being done in your name, Jesus, I will not fret for I know that you are Lord. Thank you for being my redeemer and the Episcopal Church's redeemer.

Your statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage. (Psalm 119:54)
      Thank you for songs in the night. Thank you for the gift of music that many bring to your word. Thank you for those songs that lead me into your presence, LORD.

I remember your name in the night, O LORD, and I keep your law. (Psalm 119:55)
      Jesus, your name is above every name -- please visit your people with the full power of your name. Fill your people with hope at what you will do to restore the church.

This has become mine, because I kept your precepts. (Psalm 119:56)
      Jesus, I have received so much from your hands; thank you for directing me by your word and your precepts. Please restore to the Episcopal Church a love of your word and your ways.

From the Sunday School teachers meeting last night:
Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus (Philippians 2:5)
      Prayer: Jesus, I want to have your mind about things.

At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, "Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?" (Matthew 18:1)
      A word received: I want you to take you attention off yourself and turn it to me. I had to learn to put my father's will before my own. I want you to do the same. (See Hebrews 5:8)

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. (Matthew 18:2-3)
      A word received: I said, "Assuredly," and I meant it. It is a sure thing that unless you are converted as that little child, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.

Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 18:4)
      A word received: I humbled myself and became obedient to the point of death, even death on the cross. How far are you willing to humble yourself?

Then Peter came to him and said, "Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?" Jesus said to him, "I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven." (Matthew 18:21-22)
      A word received: I want you to pray for my Holy Spirit to reveal to you the many times you have sinned against others. Then you will begin to know how often you need to forgive others.

***** From Tammy Boyd, Leader of the Women's Cursillo Weekend
Hi Prayer Team,
      I'm afraid as the story spread, it grew and got much worse than it was. I was out of commission for a good portion of Friday of the Cursillo weekend due to a 24-hour stomach bug. Fortunately, SueEllen Ruetsch was there to "fly into formation", as we took our lessons from geese during our teamings. By Saturday morning, I was back in formation and flying for the rest of the weekend...a little tired, but flying high on the Holy Spirit! Thank you to all who prayed me back onto my feet
      I just wanted to clarify so that people wouldn't be unduly worried about me. . The weekend was wonderful, and the candidates left the mountaintop glowing with the light of Christ.
Praise God!! In Christ's Love, Tammy

On the same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the sea. And great multitudes were gathered together to him, so that he got into a boat and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore. (Matthew 13:1-2)
      Holy Spirit, we pray that Jesus will be preached from every pulpit in this diocese. So fill the preaching with your presence that multitudes will be drawn to Jesus.

Then he spoke many things to them in parables, saying: "Behold, a sower went out to sow." (Matthew 13:3)
      Jesus, please help me sow seeds for your kingdom.

"And as he sowed, some seed fell by the wayside; and the birds came and devoured them." (Matthew 13:4)
      Jesus, you scatter your seeds broadcast. Some will never respond to the gospel. Please don't let me be distracted from sowing because of that.

"Some fell on stony places, where they did not have much earth; and they immediately sprang up because they had no depth of earth. But when the sun was up they were scorched, and because they had no root they withered away." (Matthew 13:5-6)
      Father, only you can provide the depth of soil to carry us through the scorching times -- we look to you to provide for all our needs.

"And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up and choked them." (Matthew 13:7)
      Jesus, stop me from being someone else's thorn. Please help me to assist people in growing in you; don't let me impede their growth.

"But others fell on good ground and yielded a crop: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty." (Matthew 13:8)
      Lord Jesus, please help me yield up a good crop to you. Help me by your Spirit to recognize good soil and plant there. Thank you.

"He who has ears to hear, let him hear!" (Matthew 13:9)
      Father, I want to hearken to everything Jesus is saying to me; please help me do that. Thank you.

Tuesday: 45, Ezra 5:1-17, Revelation 4:1-11, Matthew 13:1-9

John, to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace to you and peace from him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven Spirits who are before his throne, (Revelation 1:4)
      Father, the Episcopal Church also needs your grace and mercy.

and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To him who loved us and washed us from our sins in his own blood, (Revelation 1:5)
      Jesus, thank you for your faithful witness to us. Please help all of us in the Episcopal Church to accept the washing away of our sins in your precious blood.

and has made us kings and priests to his God and Father, to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. (Revelation 1:6)
      Jesus, please come and have dominion in our hearts -- in our bodies, souls and spirits.

Behold, he is coming with clouds, and every eye will see him, even they who pierced him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of him. Even so, Amen. (Revelation 1:7)
      Holy Spirit, please give sight to the spiritually blind in the Episcopal Church so that we all may see Jesus and may behold him with joy at the day of his appearing.

"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." (Revelation 1:8)
      Jesus, please come and visit us as we begin and end each day so that all of our doings will be under your governance.

I, John, your brother and companion in the tribulation and kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was on the island that is called Patmos for the word of God and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. (Revelation 1:9)
      Father, thank you for all those faithful witnesses who endure exile and prison for the sake of their testimony of Jesus Christ. Help them and us in this time of tribulation live in the patience of Jesus Christ.

I was in the Spirit on the Lord's Day, and I heard behind me a loud voice, as of a trumpet, (Revelation 1:10)
      Jesus, please help us all to be in the Spirit on your day each week as we gather to worship you and remember your death and resurrection.

saying, "What you see, write in a book and send it to the seven churches which are in Asia: to Ephesus, to Smyrna, to Pergamos, to Thyatira, to Sardis, to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea." (Revelation 1:11)
      Jesus, please be zealous for the faithful dioceses, parishes, and missions of the Episcopal Church. Lord, you are angry with those who have taken their ease and sought our harm. Return to the faithful in the Episcopal Church with mercy and rebuild your house; stretch your surveyor's line over us. We live in the hope that through the working of your Spirit among us that these faithful dioceses, parishes, and missions will again spread out in prosperity, and we will receive your comfort as you work among us. Thank you. (From Zechariah 1:14-17)

And behold, a certain lawyer stood up and tested him, saying, "Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?" (Luke 10:25)
      Holy Spirit, please written this question on our hearts and the hearts of the leaders and teachers of the Episcopal Church. Help us keep our focus on what Jesus wants.

He said to him, "What is written in the law? What is your reading of it?" (Luke 10:26)
      Jesus, please restore daily Bible reading to the Episcopal Church so that we will have your answers when you question us.

So he answered and said, "'You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,' and 'your neighbor as yourself.'" (Luke 10:27)

      LORD, please help us love you with all our heart -- give us an undivided heart toward you.

      LORD, please help us love you with all our soul.

      LORD, please help us love you with all our strength -- bring our strength under you control.

      LORD, please help us love you with all our mind -- help us to think on whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy -- help us meditate on these things. (From Philippians 4:8)

      Holy Spirit, please help us put limits on what we watch on TV and the Internet. Thank you.

And He said to him, "You have answered rightly; do this and you will live." (Luke 10:28)
      Jesus, please help us make the choice for life. Thank you.

A word received: I AM with you. Do not fear what men fear. I AM with you.

Then one was brought to him who was demon-possessed, blind and mute; and he healed him, so that the blind and mute man both spoke and saw. (Matthew 12:22)
      Jesus, we bring the Episcopal Church to you: please restore its vision of your purposes and give it voice to proclaim the gospel of salvation.

And all the multitudes were amazed and said, "Could this be the Son of David?" (Matthew 12:23)
      Holy Spirit, please let the multitudes in the Episcopal Church recognize Jesus for who he is.

Now when the Pharisees heard it they said, "This fellow does not cast out demons except by Beelzebub, the ruler of the demons." (Matthew 12:24)
      Father, have mercy on us; the leaders and teachers of the Episcopal Church also call good evil and evil good.

But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: "Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand. If Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand? And if I cast out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore they shall be your judges. But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you. Or how can one enter a strong man's house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man? And then he will plunder his house. He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters abroad. Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men. Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come." (Matthew 12:25-32)
      Lord Jesus, please bring the leaders and teachers of the Episcopal Church to repentance -- they speak against the genuine work of your Spirit and call evil the good work of your Spirit. Have mercy on us. Thank you.

Subject: Prayer and Answered Prayer for the Welcome Home Initiative
      Last Thursday Lt. Col. Noel Dawes (British Army, Ret.) gave witness to the healing power of Jesus for soldiers suffering from combat trauma to Chaplains of the New York National Guard (NYNG) and spoke of plans for the Welcome Home Initiative at Christ the King Spiritual Life Center in Greenwich, NY. Intercessory prayer prepared the ground for much opportunity to scatter seed about the Initiative during his overnight visit at Fort Drum. Some of the answered prayers:
      Within 45 minutes of arrival, an unexpected opportunity arose to speak to over 30 active duty chaplains and their NCO assistants. After speaking for about three minutes, Noel and his host left the room, and the Chaplain of the 10th Mountain Division followed them out into the hall. "The Welcome Home Initiative is the answer to my prayers!" he said. "Several chaplains and I were praying this week for something like this, and you show up today!"
      He asked to bring seven chaplains and their families as early as late this November for a 3-day retreat. "They have been in combat in Iraq for the last 15 months," he said. "Every one of these chaplains has been giving out constantly and now they need to receive some listening, loving and praying. I'm their pastor and I want to make sure they get what they need."
*      Pray that God will open the doors quickly for us to minister to this small group of combat chaplains from the 10th Mountain Division and their families. Two dates are being considered in late November or early December.
*      Pray for wisdom in choosing and preparing the team, for logistics, for financing, for discernment and continued pastoral compassion for the stateside officer waiting to receive these chaplains home, for angels to watch over these men in the last days of their tour, and for their hearts and those of their families to be filled with all the loving fullness of God (Eph. 3:19).
      Noel also briefed NYNG Chaplains who serve stateside as Casualty Notification Officers about the plans for the Welcome Home Initiative. Current efforts of this chaplaincy group is toward immediate Iraq and Afghanistan deployments, but their hope is to have retreats addressing combat trauma, TBI (traumatic brain injury) and their treatment, including spiritual help, available to every combat soldier returning in 2008. Firm commitment has been expressed to sponsor at least three Welcome Home Initiative 3-day retreats in 2008 with an added 2-day marriage enrichment component for the appropriate veterans.
*      Our prayers are asked that a sufficient number of chaplains will be forthcoming to enable the NYNG to deploy in January with their correct complement.
*      Pray that the chaplains who stay stateside will be effective pastors to the families of the 1200 soldier from across New York State who will be deployed.
*      Pray for the ongoing liaison between the Welcome Home Initiative and the NYNG Chaplains, for discernment of the appropriate role for the WHI in the Guard's larger vision for their returning combat veterans.
      National Guard soldiers are citizen soldiers, often older and having deeper ties to their home communities than their counterparts in the regular Army – some of the pressures of deployment are different. Noel heard many heart-wrenching stories during his visit with the chaplains at Ft. Drum. He was able to arrange for a sergeant on a 72 hour pass to have an immediate break at Christ the King Center last weekend. That soldier hopes to return for a Tuesday healing service towards the end of the year.
*      Pray that this sergeant will come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and for a resolution of the many pressures within family and local community which acerbate the reality of being deployed into harm's way.
*      Pray for protection for our men and women in Iraq and Afghanistan not only from bombs and bullets but from the ethical and moral temptations endemic to combat situations.
*      Pray for all our men and women who return home from combat with wounds that may not be visible to the eye.

Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him; do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass. (Psalm 37:7)

Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; do not fret--it only causes harm. (Psalm 37:8)

For evildoers shall be cut off; but those who wait on the LORD, they shall inherit the earth. (Psalm 37:9)
      Holy Spirit, please help me enter into the meekness of those who wait on the LORD so that I can enter my inheritance. (Matthew 5:5)

For yet a little while and the wicked shall be no more; indeed, you will look carefully for his place, but it shall be no more. (Psalm 37:10)
      Jesus, there is a terrible storm raging in your church; thank you for helping me build on the rock -- you -- so that I shall not be swept away.

But the meek shall inherit the earth, and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace. (Psalm 37:11)
      Jesus, please help us delight ourselves in the abundance of your Holy Spirit.

The wicked plots against the just, and gnashes at him with his teeth. (Psalm 37:12)
      Jesus, there is so much gnashing of teeth in your church; have mercy on us and protect us from all false steps.

The Lord laughs at him, for he sees that his day is coming. (Psalm 37:13)
      He who sits in heaven shall laugh; the LORD shall hold them in derision. Then he shall speak to them in his wrath, and distress them in his deep displeasure. (Psalm 2:4-5)

The wicked have drawn the sword and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, to slay those who are of upright conduct. (Psalm 37:14)
      Jesus, please put a stop to the attacks on the faithful by the leaders of the Episcopal Church.

Their sword shall enter their own heart, and their bows shall be broken. (Psalm 37:15)
      Father, thank you for your faithfulness.

A little that a righteous man has is better than the riches of many wicked. (Psalm 37:16)

For the arms of the wicked shall be broken, but the LORD upholds the righteous. (Psalm 37:17)
      LORD, our eyes are fixed on you. (Psalm 141:5) You are our hope and our strength.

The LORD knows the days of the upright, and their inheritance shall be forever. (Psalm 37:18)
      LORD, thank you for granting me a portion with your saints.

A word received: Look into your hearts, examine your hearts: who are your Samaritans? Ask me to cleanse your heart of hatred toward others.

Memory Verse for Lesson 10, 1 Samuel 24: "You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous." (Matthew 5:43-45)
      Prayer: Holy Spirit, please help me to hear what Jesus is saying to me.

Afterward, David was conscience-stricken for having cut off a corner of his robe. (1 Samuel 24:5)
      A word received: I want you to respond as David did when he was troubled by what he did: he confessed his sin and repented.

He said to his men, "The LORD forbid that I should do such a thing to my master, the LORD'S anointed, or lift my hand against him; for he is the anointed of the LORD." (1 Samuel 24:6)
      A word received: I want you to have the same respect for my anointed servants that David had. I want you to honor them.

With these words David rebuked his men and did not allow them to attack Saul. And Saul left the cave and went his way. (1 Samuel 24:7)
      A word received: I am calling on you to restrain your friends when they contemplate doing evil.

Then David went out of the cave and called out to Saul, "My lord the king!" When Saul looked behind him, David bowed down and prostrated himself with his face to the ground. (1 Samuel 24:8)
      A word received: "But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you. " (Matthew 5:44) David did this many times; can you count the times you have loved and blessed those who persecute you and spitefully use you.

May the LORD judge between you and me. And may the LORD avenge the wrongs you have done to me, but my hand will not touch you. (1 Samuel 24:12)
      A word received: Are you willing to leave judgment in my hands? I want you to let me deal with those who have hurt and abused you.

Note how Abigail restrains David from taking revenge on Nabal (1 Samuel 25). Even David needed to hear "restraining advice".

Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed--in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. (1 Corinthians 15:51-52)
      How my heart yearns within me, Jesus! How I long to see you for myself and for my eyes to behold you, and not as a stranger! (From Job 19:27)

For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: "Death is swallowed up in victory." (1 Corinthians 15:53-54)
      And it will be said in that day: "Behold, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us. This is the LORD; we have waited for him; we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation." (Isaiah 25:9)

"O Death, where is your sting? O Death, where is your victory?" The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. (1 Corinthians 15:55-56)
      But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 15:57)

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. (1 Corinthians 15:58)
      Thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ! (2 Corinthians 2:14).

Let us pray for the whole state of Christ’s Church.
      ALMIGHTY and everliving God, who by thy holy Apostle hast taught us to make prayers, and supplications, and to give thanks for all men; We humbly beseech thee most mercifully to accept our [alms and] oblations, and to receive these our prayers, which we offer unto thy Divine Majesty; beseeching thee to inspire continually the Universal Church with the spirit of truth, unity, and concord: And grant that all those who do confess thy holy Name may agree in the truth of thy holy Word, and live in unity and godly love.
      We beseech thee also, so to direct and dispose the hearts of all Christian Rulers, that they may truly and impartially administer justice, to the punishment of wickedness and vice, and to the maintenance of thy true religion, and virtue. Give grace, O heavenly Father, to all Bishops and other Ministers, that they may, both by their life and doctrine, set forth thy true and lively Word, and rightly and duly administer thy holy Sacraments.
      And to all thy People give thy heavenly grace; and especially to this congregation here present; that, with meek heart and due reverence, they may hear, and receive thy holy Word; truly serving thee in holiness and righteousness all the days of their life.
      And we most humbly beseech thee, of thy goodness, O Lord, to comfort and succour all those who, in this transitory life, are in trouble, sorrow, need, sickness, or any other adversity.
      And we also bless thy holy Name for all thy servants departed this life in thy faith and fear; beseeching thee to grant them continual growth in thy love and service, and to give us grace so to follow their good examples, that with them we may be partakers of thy heavenly kingdom. Grant this, O Father, for Jesus Christ’s sake, our only Mediator and Advocate. Amen. (BCP, 1928)

At that time Jesus answered and said, "I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them to babes. (Matthew 11:25)
      Jesus, please help us come to you trust and confidence as young children do.

Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in your sight. (Matthew 11:26)
      Father, we pray that you will accomplish all that seems good in your sight.

All things have been delivered to me by my father, and no one knows the Son except the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal him. (Matthew 11:27)
      Jesus, you have been so kind in making yourself known to us, and in knowing you we get to know your father. Please let the whole church come into this knowledge of you and your father. Please flood the church with your Holy Spirit.

Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. (Matthew 11:28)
      LORD, I long to enter your rest.

Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. (Matthew 11:29)
      Jesus, I long to enter your rest for my soul. Please help us all take your yoke upon us and learn from you so that we may find your rest.

For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." (Matthew 11:30)
      Holy Spirit, Jesus' yoke is easy and his burden is light; it's all the other stuff I carry that weighs me down. Please help me lay all those other burdens at the foot of the cross. Thank you.

If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. (2 Corinthians 5:17)
      Jesus, please renew me.

10/22/2007, #24, 4th Quarter 2007

"But to what shall I liken this generation? It is like children sitting in the marketplaces and calling to their companions, and saying: 'We played the flute for you, and you did not dance; we mourned to you, and you did not lament.'" (Matthew 11:16-17)
      Jesus, have mercy on us; for this generation still expects you to dance to its tune.

"For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, 'He has a demon.' The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, 'Look, a glutton and a winebibber, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!' But wisdom is justified by her children." (Matthew 11:18-19)
      Holy Spirit, help us repent of thinking God must meet our standards of righteousness -- our righteousness is as filthy rags. Please bring the Episcopal Church to its knees in repentance and in the knowledge that we are not the measure and the judge, Jesus is.

Then he began to rebuke the cities in which most of his mighty works had been done, because they did not repent: "Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works which were done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes." (Matthew 11:20-21)
      Schenectady, Troy, Canton, Plattsburgh, Herkimer, Coxsackie, have you repented from doing it your way? God has moved among us many times and still we walk apart from him. Lord, have mercy on us.

"But I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgment than for you." (Matthew 11:22)
      Father, the day is coming when we will be called to account; have mercy on us and help us respond to what the Spirit of Jesus is doing among us.

"And you, Capernaum, who are exalted to heaven, will be brought down to Hades; for if the mighty works which were done in you had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. But I say to you that it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment than for you." (Matthew 11:23-24)
      Albany, Burnt Hills, Amsterdam, Blue Mountain Lake, Ogdensburg, Oneonta, what are you doing in response to God's move among you? Christ, have mercy on us.

The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit... (Romans 8:16).
      Holy Spirit, come and bear witness among us to all that Jesus has said to us.

Monday: 25, Jeremiah 44:1-14, 1 Corinthians 15:30-41, Matthew 11:16-24

Now when they had gone through Phrygia and the region of Galatia, they were forbidden by the Holy Spirit to preach the word in Asia. (Acts 16:6)
      Holy Spirit, your "No" is as important as your "Yes". Help us and your church to respond appropriately to both.

After they had come to Mysia, they tried to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus did not permit them. (Acts 16:7)
      Jesus, you have mission territory reserved for each one of us: home, school, work, neighborhood, family, friends, or short or long-term mission trips. Please keep us from being side-tracked into someone else's territory.

So passing by Mysia, they came down to Troas. (Acts 16:8)
      Father, thank you for this team's willingness to walk those hundreds of miles listening to your Spirit as they went.

And a vision appeared to Paul in the night. A man of Macedonia stood and pleaded with him, saying, "Come over to Macedonia and help us." (Acts 16:9)
      Holy Spirit, help us hear you, whether you speak to us by word, vision, picture, or "sense of things".

Now after he had seen the vision, immediately we sought to go to Macedonia, concluding that the Lord had called us to preach the gospel to them. (Acts 16:10)
      Holy Spirit, please pour out on us your gift of discernment as you did on this mission team.

Therefore, sailing from Troas, we ran a straight course to Samothrace, and the next day came to Neapolis, and from there to Philippi, which is the foremost city of that part of Macedonia, a colony. And we were staying in that city for some days. (Acts 16:11-12)
      LORD, you guided them to a strategic choice of mission field to labor in; help us receive and respond to your strategic choices for us.

And on the Sabbath day we went out of the city to the riverside, where prayer was customarily made; and we sat down and spoke to the women who met there. (Acts 16:13)
      Jesus, please guide the team as they speak to and minister to the candidates on the Women's Cursillo this coming weekend.

Now if Christ is preached that he has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? (1 Corinthians 15:12)
      Lord Jesus, there are those among us who say this today: that there is no resurrection. Have mercy on us and deliver us from these lies.

But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ is not risen. And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty. (1 Corinthians 15:13-14)
      Father, please put a stop to empty preaching in the Episcopal Church.

Yes, and we are found false witnesses of God, because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ, whom he did not raise up--if in fact the dead do not rise. For if the dead do not rise, then Christ is not risen. (1 Corinthians 15:15-16)
      Holy Spirit, thank you for Paul's faithful witness to Jesus' resurrection and the hope we have in him. Thank you for those who were faithful witnesses to me.

And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins! (1 Corinthians 15:17)
      Jesus, there is so much futile preaching in the Episcopal Church and the other liberal churches that leaves people in their sins; have mercy on us and let the pure light of the gospel shine forth on us. Thank you.

Then also those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable. (1 Corinthians 15:18-19)
      Jesus, with Job I can say, "I know that my redeemer lives, and he shall stand at last on the earth; and after my skin is destroyed, this I know, that in my flesh I shall see God, whom I shall see for myself, And my eyes shall behold, and not as a stranger. How my heart yearns within me" to see you! (From Job 19:25-27)

But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. (1 Corinthians 15:20)
      Thank you, Jesus, for what you have done and for who you are: you are my redeemer.

For since by man came death, by man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive. (1 Corinthians 15:21-22)
      Father, the good that I would I do not; but the evil which I would not, that I do. O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from this body of death? I thank you through Jesus Christ our Lord. There is therefore now no condemnation for me because I am in Christ Jesus, and I strive to walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. (From Romans 7:19, 24; 8:1)

Saturday: 20, 21:1-7(8-14), 2 Kings 25:8-12, 22-26, 1 Corinthians 15:12-29, Matthew 11:7-15

10/19/2007, #21, 4th Quarter 2007

Now, brothers, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. (1 Corinthians 15:1)
      Father, we pray that the gospel will be preached and received in every parish of this diocese. Please help us stand on no other rock than Jesus.

By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. (1 Corinthians 15:2)
      Jesus, please help us stand fast on you and believe your gospel. There is a storm pounding on the church and many are being swept away who have built on sand. Have mercy on us and help us cling to you.

For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)
      Holy Spirit, please help us keep our priorities straight: it is of first importance that we believe that Jesus died for our sins and he was buried and that he rose again on the third day; and all of this is according to your word in the Scriptures.

and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve. After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles, (1 Corinthians 15:5-7)
      Jesus, thank you for those faithful witnesses who have handed down to our generation the knowledge of your resurrection. Please help us hand this on to the next generation.

and last of all he appeared to me also, as to one abnormally born. (1 Corinthians 15:8)
      Thank you, LORD, for Paul's faithful witness. Please raise up men and women and children who, like Paul, will risk everything for the sake of the gospel.

For I am the least of the apostles and do not even deserve to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. (1 Corinthians 15:9)
      Jesus, we cry out to you for all those who persecute your church: please bring them to conversion as you did Paul.

But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them--yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me. (1 Corinthians 15:10)
      Jesus, please let the abundance of your grace work in our hearts as well.

Whether, then, it was I or they, this is what we preach, and this is what you believed. (1 Corinthians 15:11)
      Holy Spirit, bless our hearing so that we will hear the gospel when it is preached; and having hear, that we will receive and believe it. Thank you.

Friday: 16, 17, Jeremiah 38:14-28, 1 Corinthians 15:1-11, Matthew 11:1-6
Saturday: 20, 21:1-7(8-14), 2 Kings 25:8-12, 22-26, 1 Corinthians 15:12-29, Matthew 11:7-15

***** For Prisoners.
O GOD, who spares when we deserve punishment, and in your wrath remembers mercy; We humbly beseech you, of your goodness, to comfort and succor all prisoners [especially those who are condemned to die] and Connie, Julie, Lily, April, Wendy, and Jay in jail. Give them a right understanding of themselves, and of your promises; that, trusting wholly in your mercy, they may not place their confidence anywhere but in you. Relieve the distressed, protect the innocent, awaken the guilty; and forasmuch as you alone bring light out of darkness, and good out of evil, grant to these your servants, that by the power of your Holy Spirit they may be set free from the chains of sin and death, and may be brought to newness of life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Psalm 18: To The Chief Musician. A Psalm Of David The Servant Of The Lord, Who Spoke To The Lord The Words Of This Song On The Day That The Lord Delivered Him From The Hand Of All His Enemies And From The Hand Of Saul. And He Said:
      LORD, please deliver your people out of the hand of all those who would harm or persecute them.

I will love you, O LORD, my strength. (Psalm 18:1)
      Jesus, you are my strength for this day's tasks.

The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. (Psalm 18:2)
      Jesus, you are everything I need.

I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised; so shall I be saved from my enemies. (Psalm 18:3)
      Father, you are my hiding place and I am safe in the shelter of your arms.

The pangs of death surrounded me, and the floods of ungodliness made me afraid. (Psalm 18:4)
      Father, I was afraid and you have given me the comfort of your Holy Spirit; thank you.

The sorrows of Sheol surrounded me; the snares of death confronted me. (Psalm 18:5)
      Holy Spirit, when ever I am confronted with evil, please help me look to Jesus for aid.

In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried out to my God; he heard my voice from his temple, and my cry came before him, even to his ears. (Psalm 18:6)
      LORD, when things fall apart I can turn to you; thank you for holding the pieces of my life together in your hands. Thank you for your peace that passes all my understanding.

Thursday: 18:1-20, Jeremiah 38:1-13, 1 Corinthians 14:26-33a, 37-40, Matthew 10:34-42

      Torre, I hope that Jean is doing better, and that pain she suffered has been taken away. dislocations are so painful. please let her know of my prayers. I would like to ask you to put out on your prayer line prayers for Linda Stevens and Anne Fairbanks of St John's. They will be leaving next week (October 23rd) to go on a mission trip to Haiti. St John's has a yoked parish of the Holy Spirit in Las Cohovas in the mountains near the Dominican border. it is several hours from Porto Prince over rough roads. Because of the political turmoil and State Department warnings of danger we have not sent anyone there in five years. We anticipate sending a larger contingent including a doctor in the Spring. Please pray for protection and safety for Linda and Anne on there journey and while they travel through Haiti. thank you and God bless.

      LORD, please help us enter into this blessing.

Blessed are those who keep his testimonies, who seek him with the whole heart! (Psalm 119:2)
      Father, please help us by your Holy Spirit to seek you with an undivided heart so that we may receive your blessing.

They also do no iniquity; they walk in his ways. (Psalm 119:3)
      Jesus, please help us walk by the light of your word.



You have commanded us to keep your precepts diligently. (Psalm 119:4)
      Holy Spirit, please help us treasure and live by your words and your rules of action and conduct.

Oh, that my ways were directed to keep your statutes! (Psalm 119:5)
      Jesus, please direct our footsteps by the light of your word.

Then I would not be ashamed, when I look into all your commandments. (Psalm 119:6)
      Holy Spirit, please cleanse and set the Episcopal Church free from the shame of its apostasy.

I will praise you with uprightness of heart, when I learn your righteous judgments. (Psalm 119:7)
      Father, please help us throughout this diocese learn your righteous judgments.

I will keep your statutes; oh, do not forsake me utterly! (Psalm 119:8)
      Jesus, please help us stop looking over our shoulders to see what others are doing -- as you said to Peter, "What is that to you?" (John 21:22, 23) -- help us keep your statutes no matter what anyone else does. Thank you.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. (Galatians 5:22-23a)
      A word received: You cannot have fruit unless you plant a seed that will grow. What are you doing to plant and grow the fruit of my Spirit? I want you to make a list of the seeds that you plant each day. Offer these seeds to me for my blessing. The seeds are love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.

I say then: Walk in the Spirit (Galatians 5:16)
      A word received: This is the way to daily cultivate a life in my Spirit and the fruit of the Spirit.

If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. (Galatians 5:25)
      A word received: Life is a choice you can make (Deuteronomy 30:19). I want you to choose life. I want you to walk in my Spirit.

"For a good tree does not bear bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. For every tree is known by its own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they gather grapes from a bramble bush. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks." (Luke 6:43-45)
      A word received: You test the tree by testing its fruit. Look at the evidence, look at the deeds, don't just listen to the words of others.

10/16/2007, #18, 4th Quarter 2007

Now after the king had burned the scroll with the words which Baruch had written at the instruction of Jeremiah, the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, saying: (Jeremiah 36:27)
      LORD, the leaders and teachers of the Episcopal Church have shown the same contempt for your word that Jehoiakim king of Judah had.

"Take yet another scroll, and write on it all the former words that were in the first scroll which Jehoiakim the king of Judah has burned." (Jeremiah 36:28)
      Holy Spirit, please help us persevere as Jeremiah and Baruch did in speaking your word.

"And you shall say to Jehoiakim king of Judah, 'Thus says the LORD: "You have burned this scroll, saying, 'Why have you written in it that the king of Babylon will certainly come and destroy this land, and cause man and beast to cease from here?'"'" (Jeremiah 36:29)
      LORD, your word is true and unless the leaders, teachers, and people of the Episcopal Church repent and humble themselves before you, we too will be devastated.

"'Therefore thus says the LORD concerning Jehoiakim king of Judah: "He shall have no one to sit on the throne of David, and his dead body shall be cast out to the heat of the day and the frost of the night."'" (Jeremiah 36:30)
      Lord Jesus, have mercy on us, for the Episcopal Church is facing a day of judgment.

"'"I will punish him, his family, and his servants for their iniquity; and I will bring on them, on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and on the men of Judah all the doom that I have pronounced against them; but they did not heed."'" (Jeremiah 36:31)
      Father, your word is true; have mercy on us.

Then Jeremiah took another scroll and gave it to Baruch the scribe, the son of Neriah, who wrote on it at the instruction of Jeremiah all the words of the book which Jehoiakim king of Judah had burned in the fire. And besides, there were added to them many similar words. (Jeremiah 36:32)
      Holy Spirit, thank you that Jeremiah was willing to keep listening in the face of Jehoiakim's intransigence; please help us keep listening to you in spite of the intransigence of the leaders and teachers of the Episcopal Church.

Now King Zedekiah the son of Josiah reigned instead of Coniah the son of Jehoiakim, whom Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon made king in the land of Judah. But neither he nor his servants nor the people of the land gave heed to the words of the LORD which He spoke by the prophet Jeremiah. (Jeremiah 37:1-2)
      Lord Jesus, have mercy on us for we too are heedless in our day. Thank you for your mercy.

Tuesday: 5, 6. Jeremiah 36:27-37:2, 1 Corinthians 14:1-12, Matthew 10:16-23
Wednesday: 119:1-24, Jeremiah 37:3-21, 1 Corinthians 14:13-25, Matthew 10:24-33

These twelve Jesus sent out and commanded them, saying: "Do not go into the way of the Gentiles, and do not enter a city of the Samaritans." (Matthew 10:5)
      Holy Spirit, please help us follow your instructions and promptings about whom we should speak to.

"But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." (Matthew 10:6)
      Jesus, please give us a heart to speak to the lost sheep of the Episcopal Church.

"And as you go, preach, saying, 'The kingdom of heaven is at hand.'" (Matthew 10:7)
      Father, please help us by our words and our deeds to proclaim your kingdom.

"Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give." (Matthew 10:8)
      Holy Spirit, please anoint us with your power for the ministry of healing.

"Provide neither gold nor silver nor copper in your money belts," (Matthew 10:9)
      Jesus, you have provided for us day by day all these years, please help us continue to look to you for your provision.

"nor bag for your journey, nor two tunics, nor sandals, nor staffs; for a worker is worthy of his food." (Matthew 10:10)
      Holy Spirit, please help us shed the excess baggage we carry that hinders our walk with Jesus. Thank you.

Subject: update on my daddy
Good Morning Torre,
      My Dad Richard is doing well. He is still in the hospital, week 4 going on week five. When I spoke to my dad yesterday he sounded like himself again...hooray!!! His red and white blood cell counts are beginning to steady themselves and multiply gradually. This is GREAT news! I know Our Lord is healing him and restoring him back to health, there is no doubt in my mind or heart. When I was with my dad on tuesday he told me that he could feel the prayers, he said his body feels like it is being stitched from the inside out. Thank you all for your prayers and concern and love. Please continue to keep my Dad in your prayers, they are being heard and I know that the reason he is doing so well is because of your prayers and his faith. God Rocks, Jesus Heals and the Holy Spirit restores! Thank you sooooooooooo much.........
Forever in His Service, Tracy

***** Update from the Bissells (10/14/07)
      Julia Kotoji Margaret Bissell was born last Tuesday, 10/9/07, to Liz and Jonathan. Her Japanese name is from her other grandmother and means an old fashioned instrument like a harp and a #2 in birth order. We hope to see them when Torre gets over his cold.
      I was celebrating my 3 months anniversary of my hip replacement on Saturday when I was finally able to bend more than 90 degrees. However, when I bent over to take clothes out of the back of the dryer my hip popped out! The pain was the most excruciating I have ever experienced. Also I couldn't put any wight on my leg because it wouldn't support any! I was alone and I kept screaming, hoping someone would hear. It took my half an hour to get from the dryer to my cell phone in the next room. (I am now carrying my cell phone in my pocket at all times.)
      Mercifully Hillary had just walking the door to her house across the street. I had her call 911 to get an ambulance to go to Ellis Hospital. They came very quickly and were so kind.
      Hillary stayed with me during the long wait. It was only just serious pain except when they moved me for the X-ray. They put me out when they pulled the hip back in place.
      It doesn't hurt much now (I have pain meds) but I can't do much of anything now. They immobilized my knee to protect the hip. I will see my surgeon Monday or Tuesday. I may be back to go on a lot of things but I got through it. Torre was 70 miles away in Cooperstown giving a workshop but came back early and got there before they straightened my hip.

10/14/2007, #16, 4th Quarter 2007

Now it came to pass in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah, that this word came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying: (Jeremiah 36:1)
      LORD, please give us ears to hear what you are saying to us in our generation.

"Take a scroll of a book and write on it all the words that I have spoken to you against Israel, against Judah, and against all the nations, from the day I spoke to you, from the days of Josiah even to this day." (Jeremiah 36:2)
      Holy Spirit, please give us hearts that hearken to your word to us.

"It may be that the house of Judah will hear all the adversities which I purpose to bring upon them, that everyone may turn from his evil way, that I may forgive their iniquity and their sin." (Jeremiah 36:3)
      Father, please help us know the certain consequences of our sin if we refuse to repent. Help us to lay this to heart.

Then Jeremiah called Baruch the son of Neriah; and Baruch wrote on a scroll of a book, at the instruction of Jeremiah, all the words of the LORD which he had spoken to him. (Jeremiah 36:4)
      LORD, thank you for those faithful scribes who have preserved your words through the centuries, and thank you for those faithful translators who have made your word available to us.

And Jeremiah commanded Baruch, saying, "I am confined, I cannot go into the house of the LORD." (Jeremiah 36:5)
      Jesus, thank you for all your faithful witnesses who are confined in prison for your sake in our generation; please bless them.

"You go, therefore, and read from the scroll which you have written at my instruction, the words of the LORD, in the hearing of the people in the LORD'S house on the day of fasting. And you shall also read them in the hearing of all Judah who come from their cities." (Jeremiah 36:6)
      Holy Spirit, please help us actually hear what is being read today from the Scriptures in our parishes.

"It may be that they will present their supplication before the LORD, and everyone will turn from his evil way. For great is the anger and the fury that the LORD has pronounced against this people." (Jeremiah 36:7)
      LORD, you have put before us blessing and curses and told us to choose life (Deuteronomy 30:19), but so many have chosen the path that leads to death; have mercy on us and help us return to you and your ways.

And Baruch the son of Neriah did according to all that Jeremiah the prophet commanded him, reading from the book the words of the LORD in the LORD'S house. (Jeremiah 36:8)
      LORD, please bless all those who speak your word to us in your house today. Thank you for their witness.

Sunday: 146, 147, Jeremiah 36:1-10, Acts 14:8-18, Luke 7:36-50
Monday: 1, 2, 3, Jeremiah 36:11-26, 1 Corinthians 13: (1-3)4-13, Matthew 10:5-15

***** There were twenty at the workshop in Cooperstown and it went well. While I was there Jean leaned over to take clothes out of the dryer and dislocated her hip. She had to be taken to the ER in an ambulance. They got her hip relocated in the socket and she was home about four hours later.

Subject: prayer request
Dear Torre, Could you pass on this prayer request to the diocesan intercessors:
      Hannah Mudge, who is attending Trinity School for Ministry, called today asking for prayer coverage for the school and the students. (I would add the staff as well.) She reported that a number of students are suddenly coming under spiritual and physical attack: everything from parents with strokes to severe personal health crisis, to demonic attack. She feels it is a systematic attack on the part of the enemy, (to which I would add, an attack on the future of orthodox Anglicanism). Please pray daily protection prayers for the school: the students, staff and families.
In Christ, Mother Julie Mudge

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. (1 Corinthians 13:1)
      Father, there is a lot of noise in the church and it is not pretty to hear, and the noise is coming from all sides. Have mercy on us and help us speak to one another with your love.

And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. (1 Corinthians 13:2)
      Holy Spirit, please help us grow and cultivate your fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. (From Galatians 5:22-23a)

And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. (1 Corinthians 13:3)
      Jesus, please help us do love to one another in this diocese. Help us speak words of true love to one another. Please help us repent of rejoicing in the hurt or confusion of those with whom we disagree.

"I have also sent to you all My servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them, saying, 'Turn now everyone from his evil way, amend your doings, and do not go after other gods to serve them; then you will dwell in the land which I have given you and your fathers.' But you have not inclined your ear, nor obeyed Me." (Jeremiah 35:15)
      LORD, please have mercy on us in the Episcopal Church and help us repent. We are a sinful people for we have gone after other gods and other gospels, and they profit us nothing.

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept when we remembered Zion. (Psalm 137:1)
      LORD, we weep as we remember what the Episcopal Church was and how far it has fallen and we consider our present bondage.

We hung our harps upon the willows in the midst of it. For there those who carried us away captive asked of us a song, and those who plundered us requested mirth, saying, "Sing us one of the songs of Zion!" (Psalm 1372:-3)
      Jesus, how shall I sing your songs when we are captive to alien beliefs in the Episcopal Church? If I forget what the church should be, let my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth -- if I do not exalt you and your people above my chief joy. (From Psalm 137:4-6)

Remember, O LORD, against the sons of Edom the day of Jerusalem, who said, "Raze it, raze it, to its very foundation!" (Psalm 137:7)
      LORD, deal with those who would destroy the work of generations of faith. Protect your people and your church. Help us rebuild your church on the foundation of the faith once delivered to the saints with Jesus Christ as the chief cornerstone. Thank you. (From Jude 1:3 and Ephesians 2:20)

As they went out, behold, they brought to him a man, mute and demon-possessed. (Matthew 9:32)
      Lord, so many of your people are mute and unable to share the gospel.

And when the demon was cast out, the mute spoke. And the multitudes marveled, saying, "It was never seen like this in Israel!" (Matthew 9:33)
      Jesus, by the power of your Holy Spirit please cast out everything that keeps us from sharing the gospel. Please set the Episcopal Church free to be all that we are called to be.

But the Pharisees said, "He casts out demons by the ruler of the demons." (Matthew 9:34)
      Father, the leaders and teachers of the Episcopal Church are calling good evil and evil good. Have mercy on us and cleanse the church of such falsehood.

Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. (Matthew 9:35)
      Holy Spirit, empower witnesses in every city and village in the this diocese who will teach in our churches, preach the gospel of the kingdom, and heal every sickness and disease among the people.

But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion for them, because they were harassed and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. (Matthew 9:36)
      Jesus, fill our hearts with your compassion for the multitudes, for they are harassed and scattered like sheep with no shepherd.

Then he said to His disciples, "The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. (Matthew 9:37)
      Holy Spirit, please give us eyes to see the harvest fields all around us.

Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest." (Matthew 9:38)
      LORD, it is your harvest and your harvest fields, not ours; send us forth to labor into your harvest fields. Thank you.

A word received (10/10/07): I AM. Come to me. You are in my care.
A word received (10/11/07): Hear me: pray for my people to hear me.

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! (Psalm 133:1)
      Lord Jesus, help us find our unity in you.

It is like the precious oil upon the head, running down on the beard, the beard of Aaron, running down on the edge of his garments. (Psalm 133:2)
      Holy Spirit, let your anointing flow down on us.

It is like the dew of Hermon, descending upon the mountains of Zion; for there the LORD commanded the blessing -- life forevermore. (Psalm 133:3)
      Father, help us enter into the fullness of your blessing. Thank you.

From: Seel, Mary
Torre and Jean -- Congratulations on Julia's birth! How exciting for you all.
      I wanted to ask for your prayers for us here at St. Andrew's, Vestal [NY] in the coming days. We will be handing over our Community Center to the Diocese on Monday the 15th. Some people feel a great deal of sadness about this first step in abandoning the property. A small group (about 10 people) of disgruntled former members is working with the Bishop to try to form a mission to put in our place when we leave the buildings. Some of these people are very aggressive and have been calling through our phone list trying to instill fear, doubt, and confusion in our congregation. Tony sees it as blatant and malicious spiritual warfare and preached against it on Sunday.
      Tony and I have been blessed to be able to find a house to buy and will probably move out of the rectory in mid-November. While we know God is leading us in this way, and that we have no other choice, it is still a big step into the unknown for us financially, especially.
      We hope to stay in the parish building until the end of the year. The vestry has no clear idea yet as to where we will meet for worship after that but is praying, seeking, and searching.
      It is a tumultuous time for us all, but one in which we know we are walking with Jesus. We are getting out of the boat and heading further into the storm, but that is where Jesus is.
Thanks you for your prayers. Mary Seel
