Personal Prayer request from Fr. Nigel Mumford

Date: Mon, 31 May 2010 08:11
From: Fr. Nigel Mumford+
Subject: Personal Prayer request
My dear prayer warriors,

Thank you all again so very much for your prayers that saved my life.
Keep praying dear souls... it works.

I do need some follow up prayers please:

1) Please pray for the complete healing of my lungs, for the lining, for elasticity, that the scar tissue heals up.

2) For physical stamina = NRG!

3) For my muscles and tendons: that the low grade pain leave and that they are restored and strengthened by the Lord.

4) That I may speak without running out of breath mid sentence!

5) That I may speak boldly about what God is doing in the healing ministry today as I remind people that God is still very much in the business of healing, of this I have no doubt.

6) I am still on part time 2 to 4 hrs a day... please pray that I may have the strength to return to full time ministry, and one day play the bag pipes again

7) For the souls who died in combat I knew in the Royal Marines: David Allen, (NI) Jock, (Falklands) Derick Reed (NI, my drill instructor), One other in the Falklands killed by friendly fire, he forgot the password, and sadly I have forgotten his name.
For the wounded: Tom who lost both his legs and for Tim who was shot and wounded but lost his child when his wife found out that he had been shot, collateral damage! For all the souls lost in combat.

8) For revival of the healing ministry throughout the land.

Thank you so very much dear souls. I really do so appreciate your prayers.

I do so cherish your prayers.
Much love to you in Jesus name

Fr, Nigel Mumford+

"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field." (Matthew 13:44)
      Holy Spirit, please help everyone in this diocese find the treasure of the gospel and for joy over it leave all to keep it in their hearts.

"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls, who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it." (Matthew 13:45-46)
      Jesus, please help us recognize the cost of the gospel and be willing to give all to gain it in our lives.

"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a dragnet that was cast into the sea and gathered some of every kind, which, when it was full, they drew to shore; and they sat down and gathered the good into vessels, but threw the bad away." (Matthew 13:47-48 )
      Father, thank you for casting out your net and catching me. Please help me be among the good that are gathered into your kingdom.

"So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come forth, separate the wicked from among the just, and cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth." (Matthew 13:49-50)
      LORD, that day of judgment and separation is a fearsome day: give us a holy fear of the consequences of sin and separation from you.

Jesus said to them, "Have you understood all these things?" They said to him, "Yes, Lord." (Matthew 13:51)
      Lord Jesus, please give us understanding of these things.

Then he said to them, "Therefore every scribe instructed concerning the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure things new and old." (Matthew 13:52)
      Jesus, please help us treasure both the Old Testament and the New Testament. Help us by your Holy Spirit share with others how you have revealed your father's love for us in that great treasure.

      A word received: Give me your time again.

      A word received: You are in my care.

      Fortnight of intercession for the Diocesan Convention
Daily: In the Name + of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
V.      We glory in your cross, O Lord, and praise and glorify your holy resurrection;
R.      for by virtue of your cross joy has come to the whole world.
Almighty God, whose Son our Savior Jesus Christ was lifted high upon the cross that he might draw the whole world to himself: Mercifully grant that we, who glory in the mystery of our redemption, may have grace to take up our cross and follow him; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen. (Holy Cross Day, Sept 14)

      Pour your grace into our hearts, O Lord, that we who have known the incarnation of your Son Jesus Christ, announced by an angel to the Virgin Mary, may by his cross and passion be brought to the glory of his resurrection; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever Amen.

"Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!" (Revelation 4:8b)
      Lord God, you are holy and we are not; thank you for being willing to come among us and into our lives.

"You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for you created all things, and by your will they exist and were created." (Revelation 4:11)
      Jesus, you are worthy of all honor and glory and we thank you for your creation.

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, "Abba, Father." (Romans 8:14-15)
      Father, thank you for adopting us as your children; thank you that we can know you as our father.

In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of his robe filled the temple. (Isaiah 6:1)
      Holy Spirit, please give us sight to see the glory of God.

Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one cried to another and said: "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!" (Isaiah 6:2-3)
      Jesus, please help us enter into your holiness.

And the posts of the door were shaken by the voice of him who cried out, and the house was filled with smoke. (Isaiah 6:4)
      Jesus, your church is being shaken now. Help us find our stability in you.

So I said: "Woe is me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts." (Isaiah 6:5)
      Father, we live among a people of unclean lips and we are surrounded by profanity. Have mercy on us.

Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from the altar. And he touched my mouth with it, and said: "Behold, this has touched your lips; your iniquity is taken away, and your sin purged." (Isaiah 6:6-7)
      Lord, please take away our iniquity and purge away our sins.

Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: "Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?" Then I said, "Here am I! Send me." (Isaiah 6:8 )
      Holy Spirit, please send us forth with this good news of hope: that you can and will change our lives -- that we too can be set apart for your purposes. Thank you.

Scripture Verse: Jesus said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold I am with you always, to the end of the age. (Mt 28:18-20)
      O God, who before the passion of your only begotten Son revealed his glory upon the holy mountain: Grant to us that we, beholding by faith the light of his countenance, may be strengthened to bear our cross, and be changed into his likeness from glory to glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. (Last Epiphany)

Let as many bondservants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honor, so that the name of God and His doctrine may not be blasphemed. (1 Timothy 6:1)
      Jesus, you brought me to my job; help me to be obedient to those you have placed over me. Help me to behave in such a manner that your name is praised and honored.

And those who have believing masters, let them not despise them because they are brethren, but rather serve them because those who are benefited are believers and beloved. Teach and exhort these things. (1 Timothy 6:2)
      Father, please bless my managers and help them profit from my work.

If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which accords with godliness, (1 Timothy 6:3)
      Holy Spirit, please give me discernment about the words and teaching of others.

he is proud, knowing nothing, but is obsessed with disputes and arguments over words, from which come envy, strife, reviling, evil suspicions, (1 Timothy 6:4)
      Jesus, please help us recognize the consequences of entering into such disputes: the fruit if bitter and does not feed the soul.

useless wranglings of men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. From such withdraw yourself. (1 Timothy 6:5)
      Holy Spirit, godliness with contentment is great gain: help us make the choices for godliness and trusting in Jesus to provide for us. Enable us to say with Paul: "Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (Philippians 4:11-13)

Give double honor to spiritual leaders who handle their duties well. This is especially true if they work hard at teaching the word of God. (1 Timothy 5:17)
      Father God, we honor the Mudges, Fr. Shaw and Mother Julie and Lydia. They handle their duties well and they work hard at teaching Your Word. Thank You for the opportunities that You have given them to teach and minister in Peru. Thank You that they have had the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of so many seminarians and church members in Lima. Thank You for filling them with Your Holy Spirit, enabling them to spread the knowledge and love of Jesus so effectively.
      We pray, Lord, for a good week of rest and relaxation and visiting with family. Grant the Mudges refreshment, recreation and renewal. Keep all safe as Lydia learns to drive. Be with Hannah as she gets ready to be ordained to the diaconate. And be with them all as they prepare for their presentations at the Diocesan Convention.

Good morning Torre & Jean,
Hope you are both well.
      Please put Paul+ on your prayer list. He’s been diagnosed with degenerative joint disease on his right side. He has a pinched nerve and is in excruciating pain and therefore cannot function. 3 of his fingers on his right hand (he’s right handed) are numb and it is almost impossible to hold a pen or type, etc. Please pray for healing of this joint and removal of all pain so he can get back to serving Our Lord in the way Paul has been called to do. He needs physical therapy ASAP but they are currently booked until next Friday. They will try to readjust the schedule to get him in earlier so please pray for a quick opening to begin this healing process.
Thank you for your ministry to all of us.
In Christ’s love and service,

Let the elders who rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the word and doctrine. (1 Timothy 5:17)
      Father, help us honor and provide for all those elders who minister the word and sacraments to us.

For the Scripture says, "You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain," and, "The laborer is worthy of his wages." (1 Timothy 5:18 )
      Holy Spirit, please guide us in providing for the retired clergy and their spouses and widows.

Do not receive an accusation against an elder except from two or three witnesses. (1 Timothy 5:19)
      Jesus, you had false witnesses rise up against you, please stop the mouths of any who speak falsely against our clergy and lay leaders.

Those who are sinning rebuke in the presence of all, that the rest also may fear. (1 Timothy 5:20)
      Holy Spirit, please guide Bishop Bill and Bishop Harold so that they will know when and how to discipline and encourage the clergy who serve in the Diocese of Albany and the Diocese of Down and Dromore.

I charge you before God and the Lord Jesus Christ and the elect angels that you observe these things without prejudice, doing nothing with partiality. (1 Timothy 5:21)
      Holy Father, grant Bishop Bill and Bishop Harold wisdom and discernment about the ministry of all those who are committed their care.

Do not lay hands on anyone hastily, nor share in other people's sins; keep yourself pure. (1 Timothy 5:22)
      Jesus, please guide the Bishop, the Standing Committee, and the Commission on Ministry: help them discern who should go forward to ordination and when that should happen. Thank you.

Another parable he put forth to them, saying: "The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared. So the servants of the owner came and said to him, 'Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?' He said to them, 'An enemy has done this.' The servants said to him, 'Do you want us then to go and gather them up?' But he said, 'No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, "First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn."'" (Matthew 13:24-30)
      Lord Jesus, you alone know who are the wheat and who are the tares. Please help us by your Holy Spirit that we will not rush to judgment -- that we will leave judgment in your hands. Help us to have discernment of the move and fruit of your Spirit in people's lives.

Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron, (1 Timothy 4:1-2)
      Father, we cry out to you for all those who have departed from the faith that you will find a way to bring them back to Jesus.

Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it. (Proverbs 22:6)
      Holy Spirit, please help us train up the children you have given us in our families, our parishes, and our communities, so that they will not depart from the Way when they are older. Please bless with your active presence the ministry to youth and children at the Diocesan Convention.Thank you.

The Lord knows the days of the upright, and their inheritance shall be forever. They shall not be ashamed in the evil time, and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied. But the wicked shall perish; and the enemies of the Lord, Like the splendor of the meadows, shall vanish. Into smoke they shall vanish away. (Psalm 37:18-20)
      Jesus, thank you that we are in your hands. Thank you for giving us a good inheritance with your saints. We pray that we in this diocese will not need to be ashamed when times are evil, because you will guide us day by day with your Holy Spirit. Thank you.

An evildoer gives heed to false lips; a liar listens eagerly to a spiteful tongue. (Proverbs 17:4)

He who mocks the poor reproaches his maker; he who is glad at calamity will not go unpunished. (Proverbs 17:5)

Hello,
      Just want to let you know that I brought Mom home tonight. She is resting in her own bed now. YEAH!!! I have decided to take her to Lake Placid (Wed-Fri) as I have a conference there. If I take her to a motel she can't get in to too much trouble. She'll have no choice but to rest and relax. I thought that would be smarter than her being alone home all day when I went to work. This way I won't go to work and she won't be able to do the things she shouldn't do. I have to give her a daily injection for the next 5 days. I am looking forward to that!!!
      Thanks for all the prayers, cards and well-wishes.

Prayer Table report

Prayer Table report Saturday 5/22, 9 AM - 11:30 am Jerry Burrell Park, Hamilton Hill, Schenectady. Larry and Jerusha Hubert

There were many, many people there working on the grounds--planting flowers, cleaning up the sidewalks and planting trees. A large group of people were wearing "Project Skip" tee shirts. Even one group from Albany came. They "heard about" what was going on and wanted to help. We prayed for protection and asked God to bless them in their work there at the park

The Schenectady Police ( 2 men) were there, we felt a need to pray for them; for protection and a change of heart- for their job to be more than a job, we felt that they need to support the community and receive support from the community in their job to protect it.

+ Marva: she is a "praying woman" And she knows Christ Church and knew Lorraine she went to "Lorraine's home going" at Christ Church. We prayed for her feet- they hurt, she had an operation and it wasn't complete-

+ Marion: She knows Fr. Brad- she is working to take back the City and take back the Park

+ Molaine: she wanted prayer for "everything" we prayed for protection and thanked God for her giving to the neighborhood and the park.

A man pushing a shopping cart- he said he didn't want prayer but was open to us when we said we would pray for him as he went by; we had a sense he was fearful. We prayed for safety and protection.

A large group from "Skip" came by, we prayed for protection and Joy

+ Matthew came for prayer, he wasn't sure what he wanted prayer for, We prayed for protection and that the Lord would lead him

We felt a need to pray for all of the children there and all those who would come to the park, we prayed for protection for them and that the Lord would give them peace and joy

+ Fred: Prayers that he would continue to work with such conviction at the park and in the community, and in the neighborhood watch, (the organization just received an award for their work in Schenectady) we prayed for the Lord to Open closed doors and close the doors that needed to be closed. We thanked the Lord for his service to the City, and asked Him to continue to give him the resources for that work..

+ Tyrone, a young man who was helping to fix up the park, planting flowers- he showed us where he had been planting-he asked for prayer for protection and for the Lord to lead him to a closer relationship with him. and to help him reach out to the youth of the area.

+ + Debbie, she asked for a cross for her boyfriend Michael, who was working there at the park, also, she needed prayer for protection and clarity for her daily life, and for the Lord to supply all their needs. We also prayed that the Holy Spirit would flow through their lives. She came back later and told us that Michael "Loved" his cross.

+ Demon (was he at the CC Prayer Table too?) Young man excited to be able to serve the community, prayed for the Lord to continue to lead him. Give him more opportunities to serve the Lord and the community, we prayed for the Holy Spirit to move through his life and those around him, (It was exciting to see his enthusiasm about serving the Lord and the community).

+ Nathaniel, protection and for the Lord to continue to work powerfully in his life, to continue to give him new opportunities to serve Him, and to help him physically to continue to serve the Lord.

Jenna, came by with her daughter Reeilligh and two other young boys. We asked her if we could pray and she said she wasn't sure the boys' father would approve since he is Muslim, so we just prayed a blessing on them all (In Jesus'; name); they all seemed happy with that.

+ Steve; he stayed with us for a long time, He asked a lot about our church we invited him to our services, he asked for the Lord's provision in his life, he wants to continue at the City Mission,

+ Steve came back for prayer for his girlfriend's (Tabitha) grandmother, (Unknown name) who just died, for peace for family and that the grandmother was with the Lord we gave him a cross for his girlfriend; We also told him that the Lord receives people even at the very last moment of their lives. we also prayed that Tabitha would come to know the Lord.

+++ Three children came by, Marquez and 2 other around 11, 12 year olds. they all took crosses and we prayed a blessing on them all and thanked the Lord for their help. I told Marquez I knew another boy with his same name- he was very surprised there was anyone else with his name.

Someone asked if we would be back to pray there again, and we told him we would.

+ Michael, asked that we pray for him to do well in basketball, and for direction in his life.

Larry got he sense that there was an "awakening" of the Holy Spirit in the lives of the youth especially removing the scales from their eyes, opening their hearts to the His Spirit.

Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, (1 Timothy 2:1)
      Father, please raise up intercessors in every parish in the Diocese of Albany and the Diocese of Down and Dromore.

for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. (1 Timothy 2:2)

Subject: Mudge Scripture Prayer
I'm asking God to give you a gift from the wealth of his glory. I pray that he would give you inner strength and power through his Spirit. Then Christ will live in you through faith. I also pray that love may be the ground into which you sink your roots and on which you have your foundation. This way, with all of God's people you will be able to understand how wide, long, high, and deep his love is. You will know Christ's love, which goes far beyond any knowledge. I am praying this so that you may be completely filled with God. (Ephesians 3:16-19)
      Father God, we pray this prayer for Father Shaw and Mother Julie and Lydia Mudge. Please continue to bless them in everything that they do for You. Jesus Christ, Our Savior, continue to dwell in them through faith. Let your love be the foundation of all their work. May they always know and always share how wide and long and high and deep is your love, which goes far beyond any knowledge. Fill the Mudges with your Holy Spirit. Fill them to overflowing so that they may be completely filled with the Holy Spirit and always impart your love and your Spirit to those to whom they minister.

      Be with the Mudges this week as they visit family and friends in the U.S. Give them a time of rest and relaxation and refreshment and renewal. Thank You God, three in one: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.

Dear Partners in Prayer,
Peace be with you.
This is our weekly public prayer mail.
Thanksgivings:
      1) For: a great week of three college interviews, arriving back in the Diocese of Albany, the opportunity to meet friends and make new friends, the great presentations at the Diocesan Mission Conference at St. John's in Troy on Saturday, that Lydia's LEAH prom went well, for the arrival of Hannah and Christina in the Diocese of Albany, and for getting our car up and going.
      2) That two brilliant church planters (Hannah and Christina) in the Diocese of Albany have the opportunity to stay with us while we are in the Diocese of Albany.
      3) That Tom Gizara was able to connect with us, so that we can prepare for our Diocesan Convention booth presentation. Thank you Tom, for taking care of these materials.
      4) For the photos of Peru from Fr. Ian Montgomery which were helpful for our Peru presentation at the Missions Conference and will be helpful for Lydia's Peru presentation to the youth at Diocesan Convention.
      5) For the support of the Diocesan Mission Committee, and for all they do, to promote long and short-term missions in the Diocese of Albany.
      6) That Lydia got her learner's driver's permit, and that she has had very good driving lessons, so far.
      7) That the plans for the Diocesan Short-term Mission trip in Peru in July are making progress.
      8 ) For the opportunities of the Holy Spirit to transform people's lives by what we do, and to be able to make a difference. Thank you for your part in that.
      9) For Torre Bissell's talk on Sunday about the impact of the Holy Spirit on his praying and reading the Bible: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GuHWYuPRbn8
Prayers:
      1) For safe and timely travel this week, in our goings back and forth, with Lydia learning to drive, and as we visit relatives in Connecticut at the end of the week.
      2) for Hannah and Christina as they prepare for the ordination on June 5, and for their getting settled.

      7) For the Albany short term mission trip plans July 19 to 30. There are some deadlines and administrative matters looming when we get back.
      9) For our landlady, her husband, and the others in our apartment building. Lease signing is still pending. Several people have asked us about this. Basically, we want our Christian witness to be a good one and to make friends with people in the apartment building, and we want to avoid any unpleasantness that can sometimes occur between tenant and landlord; sometimes these relationships can get pretty nasty, especially at the end of a lease, when people try to settle accounts.
      10) For our ministry at the Cathedral in Lima when we return, from June 16 to July 15.
      Thank you for praying for us. Your praying really makes a difference, and I pray for you every day. God bless you.

Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ, by the commandment of God our Savior and the Lord Jesus Christ, our hope, (1 Timothy 1:1)
      Jesus, thank you for the apostolic ministry you have raised up in this diocese.

To Timothy, a true son in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord. (1 Timothy 1:2)
      Father, please help us receive your Spirit of adoption and become true sons of yours who abide in your grace, mercy and peace.

As I urged you when I went into Macedonia--remain in Ephesus that you may charge some that they teach no other doctrine, (1 Timothy 1:3)
      Father. please bless Bishop Bill as he guides the clergy of this diocese so that they teach no other doctrine than the faith that once for all which was given to the saints.

nor give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which cause disputes rather than godly edification which is in faith. (1 Timothy 1:4)
      Jesus, please help us avoid disputes that tear down and do not built up.

Now the purpose of the commandment is love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from sincere faith, (1 Timothy 1:5)
      Jesus, please help us live out your commandment of love with a pure heart, a good conscience, and sincere faith.

from which some, having strayed, have turned aside to idle talk, (1 Timothy 1:6)
      Holy Spirit, guide all those who have strayed back into the flock.

desiring to be teachers of the law, understanding neither what they say nor the things which they affirm. (1 Timothy 1:7)
      Father, please bless the teaching ministry in this diocese. Let it be begun, continued, and ended in Jesus who is our rock.

But we know that the law is good if one uses it lawfully, (1 Timothy 1:8 )
      Jesus, please show us how to live out the teachings of the Torah.

knowing this: that the law is not made for a righteous person, but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, (1 Timothy 1:9)
      Holy Spirit, help us recognize where we are lawless and insubordinate so that we can turn to Jesus in repentance.

for fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine, (1 Timothy 1:10)
      Father, please help the leaders and teachers and people of the Episcopal Church recognize that those who practice these things will not inherit your kingdom.

according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God which was committed to my trust. (1 Timothy 1:11)
      Jesus, thank you for the glorious gospel which you have committed to our trust.

And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry, (1 Timothy 1:12)
      Jesus, thank you for taking me from the path that I was on as a youth and setting me on this path of the gospel.

although I was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and an insolent man; but I obtained mercy because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. (1 Timothy 1:13)
      Father, you know the words that come out of my mouth: cleanse my heart, my mind, and my tongue so that I will only utter words of love and truth.

And the grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant, with faith and love which are in Christ Jesus. (1 Timothy 1:14)
      Jesus, thank you for yourabundant grace, faith and love.

This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief. (1 Timothy 1:15)
      Holy Spirit, please help us recognize our daily need for Jesus' saving help in our lives.

However, for this reason I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show all longsuffering, as a pattern to those who are going to believe on him for everlasting life. (1 Timothy 1:16)
      Father, thank you for the pattern of mercy we see in the life of Paul.

Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen. (1 Timothy 1:17)
      Amen and Amen.

Hello,
      Mom is doing OK. In more pain today than she has been. She is actually PUSHING the button on the morphine pump. Something I never thought she would do. She is still not eating nor having a liquid diet. Only allowed sips of water. I am sure that is because of the bowel resection. She is bored and tired of just lying around. As you know she doesn't stop but now she has no choice. I am sure she will be up and about soon. Keep the prayers coming. They are helping.

Here's the latest. IV's have been removed and the final line in her neck is also out. Mom was able to eat solid food for the first time today. She was up and walking the halls. Pain meds are being given as needed but nothing really strong as she doesn't want to get "dopey". The Dr is looking for a Monday release as long as she doesn't have a set back. I will not bring her home if she is not up to it. Albany is too far away if she has a problem. Been there done that before.
      Thanks for all the prayers, cards and e-mails.

Philip said to him, "Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us." (John 14:8 )
      Jesus, thank you for making your father's love real for us.

Jesus said to him, "Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known me, Philip? He who has seen me has seen the Father; so how can you say, 'Show us the Father'?" (John 14:9)
      Jesus, we are so often clueless: thank you for hanging in there with us through it all.

"Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on my own authority; but the Father who dwells in me does the works." (John 14:10)
      Father, we ask you to dwell in us each day of our lives.

"Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father in me, or else believe me for the sake of the works themselves." (John 14:11)
      Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!

"Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to my Father." (John 14:12)
      Holy Spirit, help me each day to do the works that Jesus is calling me to do. Thank you.

"And whatever you ask in my name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son." (John 14:13)
      Jesus, your name is above every name. Please help us abide in the power of your name.

"If you ask anything in my name, I will do it." (John 14:14)
      Father, I ask in Jesus' name for daily empowerment by your Holy Spirit. I ask for the gifts and fruit of your Holy Spirit to be evident daily in my life. Thank you.

"If you love me, keep my commandments." (John 14:15)
      Holy Spirit, please help me each day to show my love for Jesus by keeping his commandments.

"And I will pray the Father, and he will give you another Helper, that he may abide with you forever--" (John 14:16)
      Father, please flood me each day with the living water of your Holy Spirit.

"the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him; but you know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you." (John 14:17)
      Holy Spirit of truth, flood each parish and each person in this diocese with your presence. Please give me eyes to see what you are doing and ears to hear what you are saying. Thank you

"I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you." (John 14:18 )

***** The missions conference yesterday at St. John's Troy was a real eye-opener for me. I had not realized there are so many different short-term mission opportunities. There are short-term (usually 1-3 weeks) mission teams that go to the Caribbean, South America, Africa, and here in the United States. Lives are being changed and hearts are being won for Jesus. I was also blessed by the beauty of the irises in the garden in front of St. John's Troy.

While he spoke these things to them, behold, a ruler came and worshiped him, saying, "My daughter has just died, but come and lay your hand on her and she will live." (Matthew 9:18 )
      Jesus, we pray that all who lead the congregations of your people will come to you as this man did to find new life for their families.

So Jesus arose and followed him, and so did his disciples. (Matthew 9:19)
      Jesus, please help us go with you as you minister to people. Help us learn how to do what you do.

And suddenly, a woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years came from behind and touched the hem of his garment. (Matthew 9:20)
      Help us in our time of need to reach out and touch the hem of your garment, Jesus.

For she said to herself, "If only I may touch his garment, I shall be made well." (Matthew 9:21)
      Holy Spirit, please help us come to Jesus with the faith that this woman had. Prepare your team and all who will minister at the Diocesan Convention to minister with faith.

But Jesus turned around, and when he saw her he said, "Be of good cheer, daughter; your faith has made you well." And the woman was made well from that hour. (Matthew 9:22)
      Father, please help us come by faith to receive the healing you have prepared for us. Thank you.

When Jesus came into the ruler's house, and saw the flute players and the noisy crowd wailing, he said to them, "Make room, for the girl is not dead, but sleeping." And they ridiculed him. (Matthew 9:23-24)
      Jesus, please help us make room for you in our homes. Help us ignore the ridicule of those who do not believe your words.

But when the crowd was put outside, he went in and took her by the hand, and the girl arose. And the report of this went out into all that land. (Matthew 9:25-26)
      Lord Jesus, come and take each member of my family by the hand and raise them up to new life in you. Help us give a faithful report of all that you have done among us. Thank you.

As Jesus passed on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax office. And he said to him, "Follow me." So he arose and followed him. (Matthew 9:9)
      Jesus, thank you for making my life a daily adventure by following you. Thank you for asking me to follow you. Please give me steady footsteps as I do this.

Now it happened, as Jesus sat at the table in the house, that behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples. (Matthew 9:10)
      Jesus, please let our home be a haven of peace and blessing for all who come here.


And when the Pharisees saw it, they said to his disciples, "Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?" (Matthew 9:11)
      Father, please help us keep our home as a place of welcome to the lost and the least.

When Jesus heard that, he said to them, "Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. But go and learn what this means: 'I desire mercy and not sacrifice.' For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance." (Matthew 9:12-13)
      Holy Spirit, thank you for helping us answer Jesus' call.

      Thank you, Father, for giving me Jean as my wife to help me each day answer Jesus' call. Thank you for the blessing of these 46 years!

Subject: Update on Doris Wood
Hi Everyone,
Below is an update from Lorraine, Doris Wood’s daughter. Please keep Doris and Lorraine in your prayers as she continues to recover.
Peace in Christ,
Tammy

      Just want to let you know that Mom did very well today. Surgery was longer than expected but she did well. They took her to pre-op @ 9:40AM and surgery was over @ 4pm. She finally got to her room after 6pm. They did not find any other cancer except for the 2.4cm tumor on the liver. They removed the tumor and they did do a small bowel resection as he felt there was a questionable area and as long as he was in there he felt it would be better to do it than to have to go back in later. She is in St. Peter's Rm 6210 Bed1 Phone #525-7359. When I left she was resting comfortable and will probably sleep most of the night. I will go back in tomorrow after work.
      Thanks for the prayers.

So he got into a boat, crossed over, and came to his own city. (Matthew 9:1)
      Jesus, please come to this city and make it your own.

Then behold, they brought to him a paralytic lying on a bed. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, "Son, be of good cheer; your sins are forgiven you." (Matthew 9:2)
      Jesus, come and meet all those who are paralyzed in body or in spirit. Help them hear your words of mercy: "Your sins are forgiven you."

And at once some of the scribes said within themselves, "This man blasphemes!" (Matthew 9:3)
      Father, help all those who minister in the power of your Spirit so that they are not deterred by such criticism.

But Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said, "Why do you think evil in your hearts?" (Matthew 9:4)
      Holy Spirit, search our hearts and help us repent of thinking evil of others. Help us truly leave judgment in Jesus' hands.

"For which is easier, to say, 'Your sins are forgiven you,' or to say, 'Arise and walk'"? (Matthew 9:5)
      Father, give us faith to move mountains: mountains of sin and illness. Help us use the faith we have.

But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins"--then he said to the paralytic, "Arise, take up your bed, and go to your house." (Matthew 9:6)
      Jesus, please speak your word of forgiveness and healing throughout this diocese; speak your word to us today. Thank you.

And he arose and departed to his house. Now when the multitudes saw it, they marveled and glorified God, who had given such power to men. (Matthew 9:7-8 )
      Holy Spirit, please help us use the power you give us to build up the kingdom of God and the Body of Christ. Help us always point to Jesus and not to ourselves. Thank you.

Now Amalek came and fought with Israel in Rephidim. And Moses said to Joshua, "Choose us some men and go out, fight with Amalek. Tomorrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in my hand." So Joshua did as Moses said to him, and fought with Amalek. And Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill. And so it was, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed; and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. But Moses' hands became heavy; so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it. And Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. So Joshua defeated Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword. (Exodus 17:8-13)

      A word received for clergy: I appointed Aaron and Hur. I called them. Look for those I have called to support you.

I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, (Ephesians 4:1)
      Lord Jesus, please help us answer your call; help us walk in a manner worthy of the children of God.

with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, (Ephesians 4:2)
      Jesus, help us have the same mind that you had: you came in humility to serve and to save.

endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. (Ephesians 4:3)
      Holy Spirit, please help us strive to do this at the Diocesan Convention and in all activities throughout the diocese.

There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; (Ephesians 4:4)
      Father, please help us be a people of hope who maintain the unity of the body of Jesus Christ you son.

one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. (Ephesians 4:5-6)
      Father, please enter into all our lives by your Holy Spirit and help us proclaim the faith we have in Jesus. Thank you.

      A word received: Pray for my little ones. I AM calling my people to pray for the lost and the least. The prayer table is a visible sign of my love for the lost and the least.

      A word received: Yes, you are in my care. Keep looking to me to provide.
