Prayer Table Report

Christ Church Schenectady Prayer Table Report December 26, 9:25-10:30 AM Torre Bissell and Don Foust

+--indicates received wooden cross made by Dennis Adams of North Carolina.

Few people were walking through the snow on the day after Christmas. Many of those who stopped by the Prayer Table ventured out this morning only to come to the Prayer Table.

The Prayer Table has become a regular stop for a number of folks in the Neighborhood, and we have added their names to the bottom of the Prayer Table Report.

+Madeline-- "I need a prayer". "I want to get closer to Jesus". Madeline gave her life to Christ, asking forgiveness for sins. Please pray for Madeline as she begins her journey.

Jim (regular)-- "I had a great Christmas". Jim spent Christmas with his widowed sister, her 3 daughters, and their children. We prayed for continued healing in Jim's life. Jim has made so much progress in his journey toward the healing of his past. Please pray that Jim will continue to receive strength.

+Cassandra-- This young woman became emotional as she began to pray. We prayed that the roof and porch on her house be fixed. We also prayed for happiness in her life. Please pray for God's provision for Cassandra.

+ Donor to Christ Church and +his son-- As has been the custom throughout the years a gentleman from a neighboring town pulled his van up next to Prayer Table, then he and his teen-aged son gave Christ Church a generous gift. Even though he is not a member of Christ Church, this man who had a "life-changing experience" at Christ Church continues to remember the Church. We gave thanks to God for this man's generosity and for the example he sets for his son. Please pray for God's faithful servants.

+Rose-- This woman parked her car next to the Prayer Table and came for prayer. We prayed for good health and provision. Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart. Psalm 119:2.

+Deborah-- This woman came directly from her apartment to the Payer Table for prayer, then returned to her apartment. "Thank God I'm alive." "I don't where I'll be living next week." We prayed that Deborah find a place to live next week. "I have faith." "Everything is possible to one who has faith." Mark 9:23.

Rick-- We prayed for Rick's father (Ronald) who is sick. Please pray for those who minister to their parents in their time of need.

Prayer Table Regulars

Kayla-- Pray for healing in her life after being raped. Pray for her mother Laura, her son Nassir, her brother Josh, and Josh's son Deanthony.

Update on Fr. Nigel 12:35 PM
Monday 12/21/09

Fr. Nigel has been given the green flag by his doctor to go home on Wednesday 12/23. He will have to return to the hospital after the holidays for some minor surgery concerning the bedsore, but then home for good, God willing. He is still experiencing a good deal of pain from the bedsore. He had his trach capped and is receiving a very small amount of oxygen from a small tube that goes under his nose. THANK YOU LORD!!! With his trach capped, he is able to speak in full sentences again, but he still gets a bit winded trying to talk at any length. His lungs need to continue to build up and heal. He has been walking more and more every day, but he is still experiencing some slight dizziness off and on.

Please Pray For:
      Healing of the bedsore and relief from the pain that it is causing
      Strength for all of his muscles, especially for his leg muscles
      Healing and rejuvenation of his lungs
      Healing of the dizziness when he stands
      Strength, stamina and peace for Lynn as she prepares for Fr. Nigel’s homecoming

Please give PRAISE and THANKS to our Lord for the healing that has taken place and for the healing to come. Our God listens to our prayers and as He did for St. Thomas, He relieves us of any doubts that we may have.

The following message has been sent by Fr. Nigel’s family in England to all the wonderful prayer warriors throughout the world:

Dear Beth and All, This is to greet you at the beginning of Christmas Week and then into the Blessed Day. David and I send you all Greetings for a very God-filled and therefore Joyous Season. We particularly thank you Beth and the Bissells and all the faithful "Prayers" who have stood by our son Nigel and dear Lynn through all these long and difficult weeks. What incredible fruit the prayers have brought forth - how our Lord has Blessed them - we are very mindful of His Love and Blessing. Ups and downs there have been - and may continue -- BUT GOD IS IN CHARGE and that is our great comfort and strength. THANK YOU ALL. With our most sincere Love. David and Jean Mumford and Family.

Prayer Table Report

Christ Church Schenectady Prayer Table Report December 19, 9:25-10:30 AM Torre Bissell and Don Foust

+--indicates received wooden cross made by Dennis Adams of North Carolina.

The below freezing temperatures and gray skies did not stop people from coming to the Prayer Table, but it did limit the time they stayed and talked.

The Prayer Table has become a regular stop for a number of folks in the Neighborhood, and we have added their names to the bottom of the Prayer Table Report.

Bill (regular)-- "Pray for my friend Deanne who is in New Jersey during this snow storm." We also prayed for an end to Bill's seizures and for companionship. Bill later stopped by and gave us Christmas cards. We thank God for those whose faith is steadfast.

+Darryl-- "I'm in a hurry to get to work." We prayed for protection and provision. We thank God for those who take time in their busy schedule to stop and pray.

+Vanessa-- "I want to do God's will." Vanessa has recently returned to Schenectady from Florida in order to be with her family; however, her family wants nothing to do with her because of Vanessa's past drug use. She is living in an apartment with a friend. Vanessa has stopped taking drugs, but her room-mate is a drug-user. She finds temptation all about her. We prayed that God would give Vanessa the strength to resist drugs one day at a time. We also prayed for reconciliation between Vanessa and her family. Vanessa is also looking for a Church to attend and we gave her a listing of services at Christ Church. After prayer Vanessa said, "I feel better already." During Advent, we pray for reconciliation between man and God and between family members.

++ Cadessa-- This young woman came across the street and directly to the Prayer Table. "Today is my mother's (Wynette) birthday." Wynette suffers from seizures and constant pain from a herniated disc in her back. We prayed for healing. We thank God for family members who minister to each other.

Jim (regular)-- "Merry Christmas to both of you." Jim revealed for the first time that he is a psychiatric patient with a bi-polar disorder. We prayed for healing in Jim's life. We thank God that in the midst of terrible personal afflictions, people still turn to God.

Bonita-- "I am a child of the Living God." Bonita was driving by, saw the Prayer Table, stopped her car, and wanted to know if we needed something hot to drink. We said we were fine and asked if she needed prayer. Bonita suffers from tinnitus, a constant ringing in the ears. We prayed for healing. We thank God for those who look out for the welfare of strangers.

++Blake-- "It's too cold to pray," but Blake stopped anyway. "Pray for my mother Phyllis who is in pain." We thank God for those who put the well-being of their family above themselves.

Howard-- Minister from Seventh Day Adventist Church on Swan Street. "I have a ministry program next Thursday (Christmas eve). Please pray for its success." We thank God for all those who minister to the people of Hamilton Hill.

+Walter-- We prayed for a job. In a land of abundance, we pray for those in need.

+Crystal-- "I need a prayer" We prayed for a job. We thank God for those who turn Him in times of need.

+Samantha-- We prayed for happiness. We thank God for those who seek His favor.

+Michael-- "Pray for peace." Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.--Luke 2:14

Fr. Nigel Update 9:53 AM

Update on Fr. Nigel 9:53 AM
Friday 12/18/09

Today there is some wonderful news. Fr. Nigel has been told that the work that he is doing in PT and OT is being done well enough for him to plan to go home on the 23rd! THANK YOU LORD – AND THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR PRAYERS! He has walked far enough and long enough, he has been climbing stairs, and he has been working out his hands, arms and legs to meet the criteria for release. His drive to get better and get home has been extraordinary and he says that he can feel and is uplifted by your prayers. He has experienced a recurrence of dizziness when he is walking, which had disappeared for a few days. The only element that could be "a fly in the ointment" to his release is the condition of his bedsore – whether it is healed enough.

Please keep up your prayers for:
      Immediate healing of the bedsore – the tissues, the capillaries and whatever else is involved
      Continued healing of his lungs so that the oxygen level can be decreased even further and the trach can be removed
      Healing of whatever is causing him to experience dizziness when he walks
      Strengthening of his leg muscles to help with his walking and all of his muscles
      Patience for Fr. Nigel as he continues to heal
      Strength and peace for Lynn as she continues to walk this path with Fr. Nigel

Praise and Glory be given to our Lord who has answered all of our prayers in so many ways. Thanks be to God!

Fr. Nigel Update 8:49 AM

Update on Fr. Nigel 8:49 AM
Wednesday 12/16/09

On Monday Fr. Nigel had a minor procedure on his bedsore to help with the healing process. It has caused him a lot of pain and discomfort, so please keep the healing of the bed sore in your prayers. Although he had that procedure on Monday, he was up on Tuesday and walked a short distance. He reports that he experienced no nausea or dizziness while he was walking. PRAISE GOD for that healing. He has not been able to do much else because the pain from the bedsore has sapped him of his strength.

Please pray for:
      Complete healing of the tissue involved with the bedsore and relief from the pain being caused by the bedsore
      Continued healing of his lungs so that he can be weaned from the oxygen
      Peace for Fr. Nigel as he struggles with anxiousness to be home
       Peace and strength for Lynn as she journeys down this road with Fr. Nigel
       Healing of Fr. Nigel so that he may be home for Christmas

Please give thanks to our Lord for His healing touch in so many ways for Fr. Nigel, but especially for the relief from the dizziness and nausea.

Thank you Lord for the prayers of all the faithful friends, of the acquaintances and of those who don’t even know Fr. Nigel. Thank you Lord for listening to the cry of your people. Praise God, Praise God, Praise God.

A Prayer for Fr. Nigel's Bedsore

Continue to lift up prayer for Father Nigel’s bedsore.

      Bedsores form when pressure prevents oxygen from reaching an area of soft tissue -- causing cells to die, sometimes at a deep level erupting outward to the skin. During critical care in ICU the choice to preserve life often affects ordinary nursing practice of moving the body frequently, and bedsores can be a result of this choice for Life. A three-month prognosis for the healing of this wound indicates a serious bedsore. The intense pain Fr. Nigel feels (often a 9 or a 10 pain level) indicates that nerves were not damaged.

      The best cure comes from the body’s own regenerative power aided by careful nursing practice which promotes unimpeded blood and oxygen flow to the wound by keeping new pressure off the wound through frequent re-positioning of the body. The new bed will help tremendously.

      Father Nigel always counsels praying as specifically into a physical healing as possible – targeting, even pinpointing, prayer. Many of you have battled this kind of infirmity and have an intuitive sense of the need. Nevertheless, let all of us concentrate our prayer on asking the Lord to heal this wound.

A Prayer for Healing of the Bedsore

      Heavenly Father, we thank You for saving our friend’s life, and we ask now that you send your Holy Spirit’s power to renew and enliven all cells – skin and deep tissue alike – which have been traumatized by pressure during Fr. Nigel’s long stasis in coma. We pray that the healing power of Your Son Jesus may touch and rebuke this small but potent stronghold of pain and infirmity. Protect the wound from any invasion of infection. Repair capillaries which have been damaged and draw fresh blood to the healing wound. We pray for a visible reduction in the size of this bedsore, asking boldly for an astonishing shrinking of the circumference of the wound, of its depth, of any deep tissue involvement and of its pain.

      We thank you for the hands which chose life at every juncture of Fr. Nigel’s care in ICU -- hands which gave substance to our prayer that You might spare his life. We pray now for the hands which choose healing for broken and traumatized flesh: for the hands that position our friend in bed while he builds up muscular strength in his lower body, that monitor for infection and check progress in healing, and that apply creams and medicine to the wound. May those medicines be salves of salvation in Jesus’ name.

      We praise You now, Father, for work begun and for the healing You are working even now in our friend. We lift all our petitions and offer thanks and praise in the name of God -- Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.

Messages from Fr Nigel and Lynn 12-07-09

Fr Nigel: "Thank you for your heart-felt prayers. I know they have gone directly to God. He does what he does best. How can we possibly put into words life? The [news of the] Marines [praying] in Bagdad is very powerful. Thank you for loving us back to health."

Note: Fr Nigel is using a bicycle device in bed and arm-wrestling to build up his strength.

Lynn: "I'm just grateful for the prayers that are supporting us. We are trying to get him home for Christmas."

Prayer Table Report

Christ Church Schenectady Prayer Table Report December 5, 9:25-10:30 AM Torre Bissell and Don Foust

+--indicates received wooden cross made by Dennis Adams of North Carolina.

On this grey and chilly morning before the snow began to fall, people were actively seeking out the Prayer Table. Despite their many problems, all wanted to improve their lives and were actively seeking God's intervention. We thank God for all who stopped at the Prayer Table this morning.

The Prayer Table has become a regular stop for a number of folks in the Neighborhood, and we have added their names to the bottom of the Prayer Table Report.

Christian-- repeat visitor-- Christian came directly to the Prayer Table without a prompt. "How about a prayer for my children." We prayed for provision and protection for his children Christian, Brooklyn and Nazzi. We thank God for parents who care for their children.

Bill--regular-- for protection from seizures and for a companion. We praise God for those who continue to seek Him during times of despair.

+William-- This young man walked by the Prayer Table and did not want to stop. He came back and when asked want he needed, he said, "Money to pay my rent." We prayed for provision. We thank God for those who respond to His calling.

Donald-- repeat visitor from previous Saturdays as well as Wednesdays-- "How could I not stop for prayer?" We prayed for more anointing by the Holy Spirit in Donald's life. "This is where the real work is...Keep doing it." We praise God for those who remain constant during life's journey.

Man Across the Street-- He stopped walking, prayed for us, and then said, "Thank you for being here". We prayed for blessings in his life. We praise God for those unknown to us who pray for us.

Roxanne-- repeat visitor-- Crossed State Street to come to the Prayer Table. Roxanne had her son +Wassim with her. Sunday will be Wassim's 9th birthday. We prayed for God's blessings in Wassim's life and for God's provision for Roxanne. We praise God for parents who lead their children by their own example.

+Cesar-- repeat visitor-- Ran across State Street to come to the Prayer Table. "I have Faith". We prayed for God's provision and protection for Cesar and his family. We praise God for the enthusiasm of the Faithful.

+Woman who did give her name-- She waited patiently while Cesar was at the Prayer Table. We prayed that the Erwin and Green families would know the true meaning of Christmas this season. We thank God for those who are patient.

+Maryanne-- "I'm homeless-- living in a motel. Pray that my husband and I will get back together." We praise God for those who have little, but remain Faithful.

+Lisa (likes to be called Raven)-- "I have done a lot of things I should not have done". This woman has no job. She is a convicted felon, coming out of rehab. She is addicted to cigarettes. She is a manic-depressive. She has no job. Her constant companion (her cat) is sick, but she has hope. She wants to change her life and become self-sufficient. We prayed for a new direction in Raven's life. She is looking for a Church to attend and we invited her to the 10:30 service at Christ Church. Although she has been baptized, she said she was not worthy of taking Communion. We assured her that Communion is for sinners and that we all have fallen short. Although Raven asks for God's forgiveness for her sins, she is concerned that she keeps doing the same sins over and over again. Despite so many problems, Raven has not abandoned God. Please pray for Raven, that God will deal with her many problems one at a time.. We thank God for those who still have Hope.

+Jack-- older man-- When asked if he wanted prayer, he said, "Does it cost anything?" We assured him prayer was free. Jack needed money. We prayed for provision. He had attended the Neighborhood Meal last Sunday at Christ Church. Jack used a walker to get about. Because of his diabetes, his legs are numb (neuropathy). We prayed for healing of his legs. We thank God that even those who are skeptical, will still seek Him.

+Kathy-- This young woman had a beaming smile. She was on her way to the store, but said she would return on her way back. True to her word, Kathy stopped on her return. She asked "for the Lord's abundance." We prayed for blessings in Kathy's life. We praise God for those true to their word.

+Hannibal-- "I am going through hard time. I lost my job yesterday." Hannibal is raising his 2-year old daughter Hanyia. He had no one to take of his daughter, so he would bring her to work. Because of this, he lost his job. He does not want a hand-out; he wants to be self-sufficient. We prayed for a good job for Hannibal and someone to watch his daughter while he is at work. We praise God for those who persevere.

A message from Fr. Nigel

A message from Fr. Nigel

"A HUGE THANK YOU to all who have been praying for me. There was a night when the doctors told Lynn [Torre: probably October 19th] that they couldn't do anything more for me. That was the night the special request for prayer went out. There was a huge Tsunami wave of prayer that washed over me and that is why I am here today."

Fr. Nigel also reported that he was able to put on his own socks by himself for the first time today.

Please continue to pray for:
      Immediate healing of the bedsore that is still causing him great discomfort
      Healing of whatever is causing the dizziness and nausea
      Complete healing and restoration of his lungs
      Regaining strength and use of his muscles

Friday 12/4/09
Fr. Nigel Mumford continues to improve, bit by bit. Yesterday was an orientation day for him in his new surroundings, so he was meeting new doctors, nurses and staff. He continues to receive some help with oxygen as his lungs are not able to manage on their own just yet. He said that his brief time on his feet attempting to walk is much like Tim Conway on the 70s television show "Laugh In" – he shuffles along with his walker. Although he would like to be gaining more strength and time on his feet, his dizziness and nausea are continuing to plague him. The doctors are trying to discover what is causing this.

Fr. Nigel is in wonderful spirits and his sense of humor is ever evident. If you know Fr. Nigel, you will know that he is keen on humor in the healing process. He is anxious to build up his strength so that he can be home by Christmas, which would be a wonderful gift.

Please pray for:
      Immediate healing of the bedsore that is still causing him great discomfort
      Healing of whatever is causing the dizziness and nausea
      Complete healing and restoration of his lungs
      Regaining strength and use of his muscles
      Peace and stamina for Lynn

Please give Praise and Thanksgiving to our God who has answered our prayers.
Because Fr. Nigel is still susceptible to infection, there is still a No Visitor policy. Fr. Nigel knows how many people are praying for him and he knows how God has listened to your prayers. If he were able, Fr. Nigel would thank each of you personally for your prayers for him and for others. May God bless you for your faithfulness in prayer and your faithfulness to Him.

Thursday 12/3/09

Fr. Nigel Mumford has been moved from Saratoga Hospital to a Rehab Center for physical rehabilitation. His move went very well and although he doesn’t have the intensive attention that he had at the ICU at Saratoga Hospital, this is a huge step forward in his recovery. He will be very busy at the Rehab Center strengthening his muscles so that he can do the most simple things that you and I take for granted. As an example, he lifted his arm over his head by himself for the first time yesterday. Thank You Lord for your healing touch!

He is continuing to experience very intense nausea and dizziness as he tries to stand. His legs aren’t strong enough to support him for very long yet, but he is trying so hard. Relief from the nausea and dizziness would help tremendously in his efforts to stand and strengthen his muscles.

Fr. Nigel is also still experiencing severe pain from his bed sore, so prayer for healing of this is important.
Fr. Nigel is continuing to receive some oxygen at a low level as he is still not able to breathe on his own yet. His lungs are working but not to their full capacity yet.

Let us pray for:
Immediate and complete healing of Fr. Nigel’s bed sore
Complete healing of Fr. Nigel’s lungs
Immediate relief from the dizziness and nausea
Peace to Lynn as she aids in Fr. Nigel’s recovery

Thanks and Praise to our Lord for the mustard seeds of improvement that are seen day by day. We Glorify you Lord. You are an Awesome God.
Thank you to all you prayer warriors for your continuing prayers and steadfastness to prayer for Fr. Nigel.

Fr. Nigel’s parents have sent the following message:
We realize there is a load of hard slog for Nigel - but he is so determined to get back into life again. David and I so want to thank everyone of those who have and are continuing in prayer for him and Lynn. It's a long time now and their commitment is so heartwarming ----- and LOOK what prayer is achieving. God is faithful and He is doing such great things We do want also to send our appreciation to Torre & Jean Bissell who have obviously had a big part in all this. THANK YOU - THANK YOU. So hope to meet you all in due course. With Our Father God's Love, in the Name of His Son our Saviour and in the Joy and power of His Holy Spirit........Bless you all. David and Jean Mumford .

Prayer Table Report

Christ Church Schenectady Prayer Table Report November 25, 10:55-11:45 AM Deacon Neal Longe
+--indicates received wooden cross made by Dennis Adams of North Carolina.

My time at the table began amidst an argument at the neighbors and a second argument between a young couple in front of the church. Prayed for peaceful resolution and healing for everyone involved.

Young man looking for money for bus to Glens Falls. Advised him I didn’t have any money but would like to pray with him. He said no thanks and left. Prayed with him that he would find provision and arrive safely to his destination.

+Kevin: We had a long meeting about 15 minutes. Prayed for salvation. He was an elderly man with many fingers amputated on his right hand. He spent the majority of the 15 minutes proclaiming how great God is and how much God has done for him throughout the years. He kept saying over and over, out God is so good.

++Jeff: God’s blessing, protection and guidance.

Young woman responded not today, but pray that everyone has all that they need during this holiday season.

There were 19 people who passed the prayer table and either said no thank you or didn’t respond at all. I prayed for these people anyway that the Lord would touch their hearts and bring them to know and serve him every day.

Sorry for my delay in getting this report out.

Blessings, -Dcn. Neal

Tuesday 12/1/09

Today will be the last day that Fr. Nigel Mumford will be in the ICU. We Praise You Lord and we thank You for all of the healing that is taking place! He will be moving to "Rehab" for his physical rehabilitation. He will be strengthening his muscles, especially his legs. He is fighting severe dizziness and nausea when he tries to stand, which is understandable after all of this time on his back. This is his 53rd day in the hospital! He said that his head is spinning as though he were on a merry-go-round. As a result of all of this time in the hospital, he has developed a bedsore that is causing him serious pain and discomfort.

As Fr. Nigel has taught us to pray, we will pray as accurately as possible.
Please pray for:
      Relief from the nausea and dizziness as he tries to stand
      Healing of the bed sore
      Strengthening of all of his muscles, but especially for his legs, so that he can "walk out of the darkness", as he put it
      Continued healing of his lungs
      Strength for Lynn as she ministers to Fr. Nigel

Glory to God for the miracle that He has worked through Fr. Nigel. "Glory to You, Lord God of our fathers; You are worthy of praise: Glory to You." BCP 90

As it turns out, the 300+ E-cards that Fr. Nigel received at Saratoga Hospital, although they were a bit of an inconvenience, they were actually also a gift. Fr. Nigel told me that the volunteers that were printing the messages were reading them as they were printing them, and your messages were ministering to the volunteers and the staff. God works in wondrous ways. Today will be the last day that you will be able to send Fr. Nigel an E-card. If you have already sent one, then please don’t send another, but if you haven’t - today is your day. http://www.saratogacare.org/

Blessings to all of you for your continued prayer for Fr. Nigel and your Praise of our Lord, who is our healer and redeemer.
