"Behold, my eye has seen all this, my ear has heard and understood it.
What you know, I also know; I am not inferior to you.
But I would speak to the Almighty, and I desire to reason with God.
But you forgers of lies, you are all worthless physicians.
Oh, that you would be silent, and it would be your wisdom!
Now hear my reasoning, and heed the pleadings of my lips.
Will you speak wickedly for God, and talk deceitfully for him?
Will you show partiality for him? Will you contend for God?
Will it be well when he searches you out? Or can you mock him as one mocks a man?
He will surely rebuke you if you secretly show partiality."
(Job 13:1-10)
      Lord Jesus, please help us hear Job's rebuke of those who try to comfort him by accusing him of sin. When you place the lost and the least before us, help us love them with your love. It is your job to convict any of us sin.

"Will not his excellence make you afraid, and the dread of him fall upon you?" (Job 13:11)
      Holy Father, there is a wrath that will come on all those who exploit and hurt your little ones. Have mercy on us.

"Your platitudes are proverbs of ashes, your defenses are defenses of clay." (Job 13:12)
      Holy Spirit, help us speak your word and not our own to those we meet. Help us pray according to your mind. Thank you.

Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed him, "If you abide in my word, you are my disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." (John 8:31-32)
      Holy Spirit, please help all of us throughout this diocese abide in Jesus' word. Help us know the truth and let the truth set us free.

Now those who were scattered after the persecution that arose over Stephen traveled as far as Phoenicia, Cyprus, and Antioch, preaching the word to no one but the Jews only. But some of them were men from Cyprus and Cyrene, who, when they had come to Antioch, spoke to the Hellenists, preaching the Lord Jesus. And the hand of the Lord was with them, and a great number believed and turned to the Lord. (Acts 11:19-21)
      Father, help us go forth in the power of your Spirit and speak your word to those you put in our path.

Then news of these things came to the ears of the church in Jerusalem, and they sent out Barnabas to go as far as Antioch. When he came and had seen the grace of God, he was glad, and encouraged them all that with purpose of heart they should continue with the Lord. For he was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith. And a great many people were added to the Lord. (Acts 11:22-24)
      Lord Jesus, raise up many a Barnabas among us to encourage us to go forward with you. Thank you for all the blessings you have given us.

      A word received: Thank me for my blessings.

***** Date: Sat, 28 Aug 2010
From: Rev Susan Baker Borjeson
Subject: opportunities at Christ Church Coxsackie
      Friday, September 10th 7pm - Modeling Prophetic Ministry as part of Revival: Pastor Brian Weeks will be visiting Christ Church Coxsackie, to demonstrate ministry of the prophetic in an Anglican setting, ministering with Deacon Frank Lockwood, Mother Susan Baker-Borjeson, Ralph Borjeson, and Fr Jim French as Worship Leader.
      Pastor Brian is pastor of his sixth charismatic church plant, Solomon's Porch, in Fall River MA, which is a resource church across denominations. He is walking alongside quite a few former Episcopalians in Massachusetts, and is also on the Board of Directors for Jubilate Deo Ministries, the Borjesons' ministry.
      Brian mentors 15 church leaders across the US, in Uganda, Romania and India who are moving with the Holy Spirit. Not only does Brian have strong administrative and pastoral experience, his heart is for worship, and he carries a strong anointing for prophetic word. It will be in this capacity that he visits us. There will be worship, witness, prophetic ministry to the whole congregation as well as to individuals who wish to come forward for prayer. Come and be encouraged, be refreshed, and witness how such ministry can further compliment the richness of our Anglican heritage.

      Coming in Advent, date TBA: - Modeling Prophetic Ministry Part Two - Preparing the Way of Our Hearts, Releasing the Kingdom: Pastor Brian Weeks returns, accompanied by Pastor Steve Bartolomeo, a deeply gifted Psalmist from Jacksonville FL. Steve ministers in the charismatic tradition, and like David, he is a prophetic voice over the people of God.
      This event will offer Episcopalians who are hungry for more ways to hear and see what the Lord is saying/doing, and who are open to something beautiful but different, just such an opportunity. Additionally, this event will offer charismatic Christians and non-denominational Christians a quieter, more attentive worship experience than the band sounds. The evening will offer mainline church Christians a different experience from the choir/organ worship experience. For further information, contact the Borjesons at 518 622 3431.

Let brotherly love continue. (Hebrews 13:1)
      Thank you, Jesus, for the brothers and sisters you have given us in the church.

Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels. (Hebrews 13:2)
      Thank you, Father, for all those you have sent to us.


Remember the prisoners as if chained with them--those who are mistreated--since you yourselves are in the body also. (Hebrews 13:3)
      O GOD, who spares when we deserve punishment, and in your wrath remembers mercy; we humbly beseech you, of your goodness, to comfort and succour all prisoners [especially those who are condemned to die]. 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. (From 1928 BCP)

Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge. (Hebrews 13:4)
      Holy Spirit, move in the marriages among us and heal and restore.


Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For he himself has said, "I will never leave you nor forsake you." (Hebrews 13:5)
      Lord Jesus, you are my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me? (From Hebrews 13:6)

Remember those who rule over you, who have spoken the word of God to you, whose faith follow, considering the outcome of their conduct. (Hebrews 13:7)
      Jesus, anoint Bishop Bill with your word and Spirit each day.

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8 )
      Jesus, thank you for being our steady rock. Help us to stand on you daily. Thank you.

Do not be carried about with various and strange doctrines. (Hebrews 13:9a)
      Lord Jesus, we cry out to you for those among us who have been carried away by strange doctrines: bring them back to you -- carry them back into the flock. Raise up shepherds to speak your word of truth to them. Thank you.

Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, "I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life." (John 8:12)
      Jesus, you are my light; please help me follow you step by step each day.


If I say, "Surely the darkness shall fall on me," even the night shall be light about me; indeed, the darkness shall not hide from you, but the night shines as the day; the darkness and the light are both alike to you. (Psalm 139:11-12)
      Jesus, there is no darkness dark enough to hide me from your light. Thank you for being my light to see by.

Torre,
      I have been away to the Ayacucho part of the region for the last 5 days. People were added to the roles of the kingdom of God and many were healed and forgiven for long standing sins. We are keenly aware of the necessity of maintaining a presence in these places and are trying to figure out how to do it with our limited personnel and non-existent finances.
      As far as the consecration goes, the time and date is set, and invitations are being sent. The time and date are September 18th, 2010 @ 6:00 pm (we are currently an hour earlier than you) @ the Anglican Cathedral of the Good Shepherd, Mira Flores, Lima, Peru.

From: Jeanne Gizara
Blessed is the person....who delights in the teachings of the Lord and refllects on his teachings day and night. He is like a tree planted beside streams--a tree that produces fruit inn season and whose leaves do not wither. He succeeds in everything he does. (From Psalm 1:1-3)
      Lord, blessed are Fr. Shaw and Mother Julie and Lydia Mudge. They delight in your teachings and reflect on them day and night. They share these teachings and these reflections and produce much fruit which does not wither. They succeed in everything that they do for You. Continue to bless them, Lord. Continue to provide for them everything that they need. Especially continue to send them guidance and a full indwelling of your Holy Spirit. Amen.

8/27/2010, #61, 3rd Quarter 2010

On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, "If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink." (John 7:37)
      Jesus, I thirst and I come to you -- please help me drink in your living water.

"He who believes in me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water." (John 7:38 )
      Holy Spirit, flow through me; flow out of my heart to others.

But this he spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified. Therefore many from the crowd, when they heard this saying, said, "Truly this is the Prophet." Others said, "This is the Christ." But some said, "Will the Christ come out of Galilee? Has not the Scripture said that the Christ comes from the seed of David and from the town of Bethlehem, where David was?" So there was a division among the people because of him. Now some of them wanted to take him, but no one laid hands on him. Then the officers came to the chief priests and Pharisees, who said to them, "Why have you not brought him?" (John 7:39-45)
      Lord, the Pharisees of our day still want to lay hands on you and contain you -- break loose from their grip and renew the life of your church and your people.

The officers answered, "No man ever spoke like this man!" (John 7:46)
      Jesus, speak to our hearts as well!

Then the Pharisees answered them, "Are you also deceived? Have any of the rulers or the Pharisees believed in him?" (John 7:47-48 )
      Father, the leaders and teachers of the Episcopal Church have made themselves the measure and standard of faith rather than you. Have mercy on us and give our leaders eyes to see by and ears to hear with. Help them know you and your son Jesus in a fresh new way. But they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise. (2 Corinthians 10:12b)

"But this crowd that does not know the law is accursed." (John 7:49)
      Holy Spirit, please stop the mouths of the arrogant who have made intelligence and learning their god. You shut the mouths of the lions that would have consumed Daniel; please shut the mouths of all those "leaders" who would consume your faithful people.

Nicodemus (he who came to Jesus by night, being one of them) said to them, "Does our law judge a man before it hears him and knows what he is doing?" (John 7:50-51)
      Thank you, Jesus, for giving Nicodemus the courage to speak up; please raise up more men like him in the councils of the church.

They answered and said to him, "Are you also from Galilee? Search and look, for no prophet has arisen out of Galilee." (John 7:52)
      Holy Spirit, break out all over the place and confound the wisdom of the wise -- all those who are wise in their own eyes and trust in themselves rather than Jesus. Thank you.

For you will light my lamp; the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness. (Psalm 18:28 )
      Jesus, you are my light to see by; help me take each step by your light.

For by you I can run against a troop, by my God I can leap over a wall. (Psalm 18:29)
      Holy Spirit, please help us leap over all those walls of tradition and custom that separate us from our brothers and sisters in the body of Christ.

As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is proven; he is a shield to all who trust in him. (Psalm 18:30)
      Father, I look to you: protect our family and friends, our parish, and this diocese. Help us daily grow in holiness and let us be perfected by your word and Spirit. Thank you.

      A word received: Walk in my ways. Make that your aim -- to walk with me throughout the day.

8/25/2010, #59, 3rd Quarter 2010

There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of what was called the Italian Regiment, (Acts 10:1)
      Jesus, please select men among us as you selected Cornelius.

a devout man and one who feared God with all his household, who gave alms generously to the people, and prayed to God always. (Acts 10:2)
      Holy Spirit, raise up men among us who will fear God, lead their families in your ways, give generously to your people, and who pray constantly.

About the ninth hour of the day he saw clearly in a vision an angel of God coming in and saying to him, "Cornelius!" (Acts 10:3)
      Lord, give such men sight to see and ears to hear your angels that surround us and your Holy Spirit.

And when he observed him, he was afraid, and said, "What is it, lord?" So he said to him, "Your prayers and your alms have come up for a memorial before God. (Acts 10:4)
      Father, we pray that our prayers and offerings will come before you as a memorial as they did with Cornelius.

Now send men to Joppa, and send for Simon whose surname is Peter. He is lodging with Simon, a tanner, whose house is by the sea. He will tell you what you must do." And when the angel who spoke to him had departed, Cornelius called two of his household servants and a devout soldier from among those who waited on him continually. So when he had explained all these things to them, he sent them to Joppa. (Acts 10:5-8 )
      Holy Spirit, give us hearts that are obedient like Cornelius' heart. Help us do your bidding.

The next day, as they went on their journey and drew near the city, Peter went up on the housetop to pray, about the sixth hour. Then he became very hungry and wanted to eat; but while they made ready, he fell into a trance and saw heaven opened and an object like a great sheet bound at the four corners, descending to him and let down to the earth. In it were all kinds of four-footed animals of the earth, wild beasts, creeping things, and birds of the air. And a voice came to him, "Rise, Peter; kill and eat." But Peter said, "Not so, Lord! For I have never eaten anything common or unclean." (Acts 10:9-14)
      Jesus, bless the witness of all those you send forth. Prepare the hearts of those they are sent to as you did with Peter.

And a voice spoke to him again the second time, "What God has cleansed you must not call common." This was done three times. And the object was taken up into heaven again. (Acts 10:15-16)
      Holy Spirit, please help us as you did Peter recognize your cleansing work in those you send to us and help us receive them joyfully. Thank you.

Why do you stand afar off, O LORD? Why do you hide in times of trouble? (Psalm 10:1)
      LORD, please come to the aid of all those who are stricken and in grief.

The wicked in his pride persecutes the poor; let them be caught in the plots which they have devised. (Psalm 10:2)
      LORD, defeat the schemes of the wicked, the schemes of the proud and arrogant.

For the wicked boasts of his heart's desire; he blesses the greedy and renounces the LORD. (Psalm 10:3)
      Arise in your strength, O LORD, and deal with them -- humble them and let them know they need your mercy.

The wicked in his proud countenance does not seek God; God is in none of his thoughts. (Psalm 10:4)
      Raise up witnesses, O LORD, who will point to you. Let the proud find out that everything they have came from you and that they are but men like any other. Thank you.

O LORD my God, in you I put my trust; save me from all those who persecute me; and deliver me, (Psalm 7:1)
      LORD, you are my hope and my heart's desire; help me to turn to you each day for help.

Lest they tear me like a lion, rending me in pieces, while there is none to deliver. (Psalm 7:2)
      Lord Jesus, deliver me from the hand of deceitful men and protect me from trouble on every side.

O LORD my God, if I have done this: if there is iniquity in my hands, (Psalm 7:3)
      Holy Spirit, please help me repent of every evil that I do.

If I have repaid evil to him who was at peace with me, or have plundered my enemy without cause, (Psalm 7:4)
      Holy Spirit, help me examine my ways and turn to Jesus whenever I find sin in my life.

Let the enemy pursue me and overtake me; yes, let him trample my life to the earth, and lay my honor in the dust. (Psalm 7:5)
      Father, in your mercy, don't look at my sins, but rather look at the blood of Jesus which cleanses from all sin. In your mercy hold me in your hands. Thank you.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. (Psalm 46:1)
      LORD, you are our refuge and our strength in these troubled times.

Therefore we will not fear, even though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; (Psalm 46:2)
      Jesus, even if these high mountains are carried away in to the midst of the sea, I will not fear for I am standing on you -- you are the rock that does not move or shake.

Though its waters roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with its swelling. (Psalm 46:3)
      Father, even if earthquake or tsunami come, you are my refuge and hope when all else is carried away.

There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High. (Psalm 46:4)

      Holy Spirit, carry me in your stream of living water.

God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God shall help her, just at the break of dawn. (Psalm 46:5)
      Lord Jesus Christ, let your light shine forth in our darkness; help us see by the light of your word and your Spirit.

The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved; he uttered his voice, the earth melted. (Psalm 46:6)
      Jesus, speak your word to the nations.

The Lord of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. (Psalm 46:7)
      Holy Spirit, give me a heart like Jacob's, who persevered with Jesus until he received his blessing and in the process was transformed from Jacob into Israel.
      Then Jacob was left alone; and a Man wrestled with him until the breaking of day. Now when He saw that He did not prevail against him, He touched the socket of his hip; and the socket of Jacob's hip was out of joint as He wrestled with him. And He said, "Let Me go, for the day breaks." But he said, "I will not let You go unless You bless me!" So He said to him, "What is your name?" He said, "Jacob." And He said, "Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel; for you have struggled with God and with men, and have prevailed." Then Jacob asked, saying, "Tell me Your name, I pray." And He said, "Why is it that you ask about My name?" And He blessed him there. So Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: "For I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved." (Genesis 32:24-30)

      A word received: Hunger for my word and my Spirit.

What a large number of things you have made, O Lord!
You made them all by wisdom.
The earth is filled with your creatures.
All of them look to you to give them their food at the right time.
You give it to them, and they gather it up.
You open your hand, and they are filled with blessings.
You send out your Spirit, and they are created.
You renew the face of the earth.
May the glory of the Lord endure forever.
May the Lord find joy in what he has made.
I will sing to the Lord throughout my life.
I will make music to praise my God as long as I live.
May my thoughts be pleasing to him.
I will find joy in the Lord.
Praise the Lord, my soul!
Hallelujah!
(Excerpts from Psalm 104: 24-35)

Lord, we praise You for all of your creation which you have made by wisdom. We praise You for the Mudges to whom You have given special gifts for the mission field. We thank You for every bit of provision for Father Shaw and Mother Julie and Lydia. We especially thank You for their financial supporters and for those who bless them in their prayers. Thank You for every blessing bestowed upon the Mudges. Thank You for your Holy Spirit and for every bit of renewal that is occurring in Peru. Lord, may your glory endure forever. May you continue to find joy in the work of the Mudges. Bless the music at their worship services. We ask you to raise up a mighty praise band for Your Glory. May every thought in the minds of Shaw and Julie and Lydia be pleasing to You. And may they find Your Joy in everything that they do. We praise You Lord, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Hallelujah! Amen.

Jesus answered them and said, "Most assuredly, I say to you, you seek me, not because you saw the signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled." (John 6:26)
      Jesus, please help us recognize the signs of your work among us for what they are and respond to them.

"Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set his seal on him." (John 6:27)
      Father, help us labor for that which endures and feeds our souls; help us receive all that Jesus wants to give us.

Then they said to him, "What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?" (John 6:28 )
      Holy Spirit, prompt each of us to ask this question, and give us listening ears that hear and hearken to your answer.

Jesus answered and said to them, "This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent." (John 6:29)
      Jesus, please help us daily believe in you and love you and your ways. Help us manifest your love to others so that the world may believe.

Therefore they said to him, "What sign will you perform then, that we may see it and believe you? What work will you do?" (John 6:30)
      Jesus, please bring us to repentance -- help us repent of seeking signs and wonders instead of seeking you. When we seek and find you in the power of your Holy Spirit, the signs will follow. (See Mark 16:17-20)

"Our fathers ate the manna in the desert; as it is written, 'He gave them bread from heaven to eat.'" (John 6:31)
      Holy Father, feed us, feed this generation with the living bread which come down from heaven: Jesus.

Then Jesus said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, Moses did not give you the bread from heaven, but my father gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is he who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world." (John 6:32-33)
      Father, give us this bread always: the body and blood and Holy Spirit of your son Jesus. Thank you.

Then they said to him, "Lord, give us this bread always." (John 6:34)
      Jesus, please help us give you space and time in our lives so that you can do the work in and through us that you want to do. Help us lay aside our agenda for yours. Thank you.


      A word received: Pray for my word to lodge in your heart.

      A word received: I want you to come before me unashamed. There is now no condemnation. I want you to leave behind every condemnation -- give them all to me.

Subject: Diocesan Update Addendum
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
      In an effort to reach out and provide service to our community, the staff at Christ the King sponsors a Respite Station at the local Washington County Fair. This Family Comfort Station provides a clean quiet place for families to sit and change diapers or nurse babies in private as well as just a needed location for sitting and relaxing with a refreshing cup of water. In order to welcome people to the comfort station and keep it tidy, the staff volunteers during all the hours the fair is open: August 23rd 5PM to 10PM and Tuesday the 24th through Sunday the 28th 10 AM through 10PM daily.
      This is a wonderful opportunity for Christ the King to meet people in the community and provide a necessary service to those around us. As part of setting up for the fair the Glens Falls Post Star captured some of the staff getting the tent ready and they are on the front page of Thursday’s paper. The link is listed here: http://poststar.com/image_6974686f-d486-5b33-98c2-0d26d4b4c237.html

Now when evening came, his disciples went down to the sea, got into the boat, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was already dark, and Jesus had not come to them. (John 6:16-17)
      Jesus, when it is dark and we cannot see the way ahead clearly, please come to us with your light.

Then the sea arose because a great wind was blowing. (John 6:18 )
      Lord, a great wind is blowing against your church and your people, and we are often afraid.

So when they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and drawing near the boat; and they were afraid. But he said to them, "It is I; do not be afraid." (John 6:19-20)
      Please help us hear what you are saying to us, Jesus.

Then they willingly received him into the boat, and immediately the boat was at the land where they were going. (John 6:21)
      Jesus, please help us willingly and gladly receive you into our lives and circumstances. Thank you.

Now when the apostles who were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent Peter and John to them, who, when they had come down, prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit. (Acts 8:14-15)
      Jesus, I pray that Bishop Bill, Bishop Dan, Bishop David, and Bishop Dave will go throughout the Diocese of Albany and Bishop Harold will go throughout the Diocese of Down and Dromore and impart the Holy Spirit with great power to all who have received the word of God.

      Holy Spirit, move among us and help us do and see the signs and wonders that Jesus has told us to do: heal the sick, cleanse lepers, feed the hungry, give living water to the thirsty, welcome strangers, clothe the naked, visit prisoners, and raise the dead.

      Father, we ask that your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Thank you.

Dear Prayer Partners,
      Yesterday was a great day at Blaze Fest. We had 44 students attend the camp. We taught them about God's power.
      I don't have time to get into anymore details right now. However, I do ask that you pray for the following:
      The two women in the picture on the right our two of my key leaders for Blaze Fest. Catie, the woman on the right has been experiencing severe fatigue. She is responsible for coordinating all the volunteers for Blaze Fest. Cherie, the woman on the right also has a key position. Today, Cherie expressed that she couldn't sleep last night. She has been experiencing great anxiety.
      Please pray for my leaders. Pray for the kids.

      Jesus, we know that when we pass through the waters, you will be with us, and through the torrents of the river, they shall not overwhelm us. Thank you. (See Isaiah 43:2)

Blessed be the Lord, Who has not given us as prey to their teeth. (Psalm 124:6)
      Holy Trinity, one God, thank you.

Our soul has escaped as a bird from the snare of the fowlers; The snare is broken, and we have escaped. (Psalm 124:7)

Our help is in the name of the Lord, Who made heaven and earth. (Psalm 124:8 )
      Truly, LORD, you are our help and our salvation. We thank you and praise you for all that you have done, are doing right now, and will do in the future to set us free in your kingdom.

Dear Prayer Partners,
      Things have come together well for this Blaze Fest. The building is ready. Each instructional class has all the equipment needed. We have turntable tables, sound systems, spray paint, music, jump ropes, black books, mics, lap tops, soft ware, a graffiti wall, etc. Breakfast is cooking. We are ready to engage kids in relevant ways. What a privilege!
      So, the first challenge: The main speaker for Blaze Fest called me and told me he is not going to be able to make it. Yikes!
Please cover us in prayer:
      1. Pray for me and my team as we put together the messages for the week.
      2. Pray for Catie Messenger, my volunteer coordinator for the week. She has been experiencing abnormal fatigue.
      3. Pray for Sarah, my wife as she leads the staff devotional this morning.
      4. Pray for our afternoon outreach. That the weather will clear up so that we can reach out to kids in the Bellevue section of Schenectady.

Then Jesus answered and said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of himself, but what he sees the Father do; for whatever he does, the Son also does in like manner." (John 5:19)
      Holy Spirit, please help us to be guided by the Father in the same manner Jesus is.

"For the Father loves the Son, and shows him all things that he himself does; and he will show him greater works than these, that you may marvel." (John 5:20)"
      Father, thank you for revealing yourself to us in the Scriptures and through your Holy Spirit. Help us recognize your work among us today.

"For as the Father raises the dead and gives life to them, even so the Son gives life to whom he will." (John 5:21)
      Jesus, thank you that when were dead in sin you raised us to new life by faith in you.

"For the Father judges no one, but has committed all judgment to the Son," (John 5:22)
      Jesus, please cover over our sins with your blood so that when you look at us we shall be clean and spotless. Thank you.

"that all should honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him." (John 5:23)
      Holy Spirit, please help us honor Jesus by our words and deeds and faith in him.

"Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears my word and believes in him who sent me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life." (John 5:24)
      Lord Jesus, please help us hear and receive your word into our hearts. Thank you for bringing us from death into life.

"Most assuredly, I say to you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God; and those who hear will live." (John 5:25)
      Holy Spirit, you raised Jesus from the dead, please raise all those in the Episcopal Church who are dead in sin and unrepentance to new life in Jesus.

"For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son to have life in himself," (John 5:26)
      Jesus, you are the way, the truth, and the life.

"and has given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of Man." (John 5:27)
      Father, you have granted all authority in heaven and earth to Jesus. Help us heed his command to make disciples of all nations, baptize them, and teach them to observe all that he has commanded us. Thank you.

Then he also said to the multitudes, "Whenever you see a cloud rising out of the west, immediately you say, 'A shower is coming'; and so it is. And when you see the south wind blow, you say, 'There will be hot weather'; and there is. Hypocrites! You can discern the face of the sky and of the earth, but how is it you do not discern this time?" (Luke 12:54-56)
      A word received: This time is evil but I have called you to be salt and light.

But you must keep your faith steady and firm. Don't move away from the hope that the good news holds out to you. It is the good news that you heard. It has been preached to every creature under heaven. I, Paul, now serve the good news. (Colossians 1:23)
      Heavenly Father, we thank You for Father Shaw and Mother Julie and Lydia Mudge. We thank You that they are your servants, serving the good news and proclaiming it to the people of Peru. Thank You for their steady and firm faith and the hope that they themselves have that they share with those to whom they minister.
      We thank You for a good start to the new semester. Continue to bless Father Shaw and Mother Julie as they teach and preach. Guide them in their administrative duties and may the Your Holy Spirit be with them mightily in all their ministry. Bless Lydia in all of her studies. Guide her to the college that is best for her. Bless the short term missionaries who are visiting this week.
      Thank You Lord for all of your blessings, mercy and grace. Amen.

From: HUGH BOWMAN
--- On Mon, 16/8/10, Alison Elliott
      Can I ask for continued prayer for my boyfriend's father David. He was rushed into Antrim hospital last saturday and he has been fairly unsettled since. There have been some complications with doctor errors with medications which have set him back and he has now developed a chest infection. On friday his wife Linda and Alan were planning the funeral but he has settled slightly over the weekend. Please continue to pray for strength, improved health and that they can get him home soon.
Thanks, Ali
      Father we ask that your presence would be with David right now breathing new life into to him by the power of the Holy Spirit and that both David and the family would know your peace thats passes all understanding

Hi Hugh,
Here's a wee update on Callum and as you can see things are going well. Perhaps you could forward this last email on to all the people on the prayer chain. As you can see from it Callum and his mum and dad have been touched by our prayers.
Thanks Alan
      Great news Callum has been discharged from hospital and is back home with us. He has to go back in on Tuesday for tests as they have concerns about cysts however Callum is almost back to normal on the outside at least. I'd like to thank everyone for praying for Callum and he knows that grandad's church prayed for him. I can safely say that the last two weeks were the worst of my life but I can honestly say that knowing you were all praying for him filled me and my wife with warmth. We are really grateful for your support and I'd like to bring Callum to the church when we next visit Belfast and say hello. Whilst I'm writing would also like to thank you for making time for my dad and being there for him at this time.
David
      Father we give you our thanks for hearing and answering our prayers with this wonderful outcome we ask that you will that you will keep touching Callum until he is completely back to full health and strength.

"The prophet who has a dream, let him tell a dream; And he who has my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat?" says the Lord. (Jeremiah 23:28 )
      Jesus, let all those who hear your word speak your word. Help us discern the difference between the chaff and the wheat in the words we hear.

"Is not my word like a fire?" says the Lord, "And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces? (Jeremiah 23:29)
      Holy Spirit, break up the stony places in our hearts with your word; let the fire of your word burn in our hearts.

      A word received: I AM walking -- join me. (Sense of Jesus walking through the community)

      A word received: You will meet me as you look for me. (Sense that we needed to look for Jesus in the people we would meet on the street)

      A word received: Keep looking for me. Keep looking for me in the face of those you meet.

      A word received: I want you to see my face.

PRAYER TABLE REPORT, (St. Mary's of Lake Luzerne), Saturday, Aug. 14, 2010; 11:30-noon in front of the Parish Hall after our monthly healing service and prior to our weekly free community luncheon. Deacon Dawn Skramstad and Deacon Alan Hart present at His table.)

a--indicated anointed with Holy Oil.
t--indicates received wooden cross made by Dennis Adams of North Carolina.

a--MARYLOU -- This is a repeat visitor to the Table. Marylou has been troubled for some time ("I'm up-and-down!" as she described it herself) with worries about her granddaughter CHRISTIE'S pregnancy; worries that Christie will be all right and come through the delivery and birth and that the baby will be healthy and normal. (The birth is expected in October.) We prayed for MaryLou to stop having these feelings of anxiety and fear over the pregnancy and know that all will be well, that God will watch over mother and baby and preserve and protect them all.

a,t -- ANGIE -- Another person who has visited His table in the past and was patiently waiting for her turn while MaryLou was being prayed for. Angie has a husband who is in very poor health and not doing well at all, although her husband did come to the luncheon later in another vehicle. We prayed for the health of her husband and also for greater family unity for them and strength through faith. The Lord knows the details.

t,t,t --- APRIL (mom), AUBREY (young daughter) and ERIC (dad) --- This family from Michigan saw our "luncheon" sign on Route 9N yesterday while driving past and decided to stop and visit and have lunch with us. They are vacationing and were delighted to see the church, took pictures inside and outside. They also are Episcopalians and thought our church was beautiful, which of course it IS! We prayed for them for travel mercies as they return back home on Monday.

Rejoice in the LORD, O you righteous! For praise from the upright is beautiful. (Psalm 33:1)
      Holy Spirit, please help us find our joy in Jesus; help us to be upright in our dealings and praise him.

Praise the LORD with the harp; make melody to him with an instrument of ten strings. (Psalm 33:2)
      Father, please help us use every gift and talent we have to praise you. Give us melodies in our hearts.

Sing to him a new song; play skillfully with a shout of joy. (Psalm 33:3)
      Please help us to use our skills to praise you, Jesus.

For the word of the LORD is right, and all his work is done in truth. (Psalm 33:4)
      LORD, let your word penetrate our hearts with your truth.

He loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD. (Psalm 33:5)

By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. (Psalm 33:6

Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for he is good! For his mercy endures forever. (Psalm 107:1)
      Thank you, LORD, for your mercy and kindness towards us.

Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he has redeemed from the hand of the enemy, (Psalm 107:2)
      Jesus, thank you for paying the price of my redemption with your blood.

And gathered out of the lands, from the east and from the west, from the north and from the south. (Psalm 107:3)
      Holy Spirit, assemble your people and send them forth to do the work of ministering Jesus.

They wandered in the wilderness in a desolate way; they found no city to dwell in. (Psalm 107:4)
      Holy Father, so many of your people, your lambs, are wandering in the wilderness and in desolate places -- draw them to Jesus.

Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them. (Psalm 107:5)
      Jesus, please help your people understand that the hunger and thirst they experience can only be satisfied by you.

Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses. (Psalm 107:6)
      Jesus, help us find you mighty to save: we cry out to you for the Episcopal Church -- deliver us from our distress.

And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city for a dwelling place. (Psalm 107:7)
      Holy Spirit, lead us into your provision for us. Help us to go for it and receive all you have for us.

Oh, that men would give thanks to the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! (Psalm 107:8 )
      Thank you, Father!

      Thank you, Jesus!

      Thank you, Holy Spirit!

For he satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness. (Psalm 107:9)

But he said to them, "I have food to eat of which you do not know." (John 4:32)
      Father, please help us receive and eat of that food which comes from doing your will.

Therefore the disciples said to one another, "Has anyone brought him anything to eat?" Jesus said to them, "My food is to do the will of him who sent me, and to finish his work." (John 4:33-34)
      Thank you, Jesus, for doing your good work on the cross that purchased our salvation.

"Do you not say, 'There are still four months and then comes the harvest'? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!" (John 4:35)
      Holy Spirit, please help us stop "waiting for the harvest" and never producing! Help us go out into the harvest fields and do the work there to which you are calling us.

"And he who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together." (John 4:36)
      Lord, I want to be doing your work -- whether sowing or reaping -- I want to do your kingdom work.

"For in this the saying is true: 'One sows and another reaps.' I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored, and you have entered into their labors." (John 4:37-38 )
      Jesus, ours is only one small part of the whole -- the whole is incomplete until we do our part -- help us by your Holy Spirit to do all that you are asking of us. Thank you.

Thursday: 105:23-45; Judges 14:1-19; Acts 6:15-7:16; John 4:27-42

      Notes from the Front Line

***** "Christianity is one beggar telling another beggar where he found bread." D. T. Niles

***** From the Community of Saint Mary
            Annual Summer Pilgrimage
      It was ten years ago this summer that the Sisters of St. Mary said "yes" to God's call to join with the Diocese of Albany in a vision for a Spiritual Life Center somewhere within the diocese. Within three years of that "yes", they moved from their home of over a century to Greenwich, NY, consecrating a new convent home contiguous to Christ the King Center in 2005.
      The Sisters invite you to join them Sunday afternoon, August 15, in offering thanksgiving and praise to God for the bountiful mercy of this decade, celebrating the Feast of St. Mary the Virgin and the convent's dedication. The afternoon begins with tea and refreshments on the patio at 4:30 p.m. The Rt. Rev'd Daniel Herzog will officiate at Vespers with Benediction at 5:30 p.m. A barbeque supper follows. A free will offering will be taken. Please call the convent (692-3028 ) to let us know you are coming.
      Labor Day Weekend Retreat at St. Mary's Convent
      The Sisters of St. Mary invite you to join in their annual Labor Day Weekend Retreat, September 3-6, 2010. The Rt. Rev'd James M. Adams, retired Bishop of Western Kansas, will lead this three-day silent retreat entitled "A Labor of Love". The retreat begins with Vespers on Friday and ends after dinner on Monday. The cost is $230. Accommodations are at the convent and Barry House Library, with meditations, Holy Eucharist, the Divine Office and meals taking place at the convent.
      Take time this Labor Day to step aside from the maelstrom of daily life to reflect and pray -- to "reboot and recharge" your soul before re-entry into the whirlwind of fall commitments. Call the convent at 692-3028 to reserve a place on this retreat.
      If you are unable to attend this guided retreat, remember that self-directed, private retreats may be made anytime at the convent guest house. A suggested donation of $69 covers overnight accommodation and (silent) meals at the convent. Making a private retreat with the sisters is a good way to enjoy the bounty of Christ the King's natural setting apart from the Center's busy ministry hub, tying into the sisters' ordinary round of daily Eucharist and chanted prayer. "For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation." Psalm 62:1.
      Please pray for vocations to the Sisters of St. Mary.
