Gold is tested in fire and chosen men in the furnace of humiliation. (Ecclesiasticus 2:5)

He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear and put their trust in the Lord.
(Psalm 40:3)

Many, O Lord my God, are the wonders you have done.
The things you planned for us no one can recount to you;
Were I to speak and tell of them, they would be too many to declare.
(Psalm 40:5)

But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you;
May those who love your salvation always say, "The Lord be exalted!"
(Psalm 40:16)

      Lord, we continue to pray for the ministries of Fr. Shaw and Mother Julie and Lydia Mudge and for Bishop Mike Chapman and his wife, Linda. We thank You for all that You have done in the past week. We pray for the whole diocese of Peru that all involved can work together in unity, guided by your Holy Spirit, ever marching forward and bringing your love and your message to all to whom they minister. May there be a spirit of praise and exaltation in worship and a spirit of trust in You as they obey your orders to go and make disciples. Thank You for all of the blessings that you have already sent to the Mudges. Especially thank You that Lydia has been accepted at the college of her choice. Thank You for your plans for her. And thank You for the wonderful plans you have for the diocese of Peru. Many are the wonders that you have done, and we know that there will be many other wonders. May all who seek You rejoice and be glad. You are exalted, Lord! Amen.

Then one from the crowd said to him, "Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me." But he said to him, "Man, who made me a judge or an arbitrator over you?" And he said to them, "Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one's life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses." (Luke 12:13-15)
      Holy Spirit, please help us repent of covetousness. It is an abiding sin in our culture. Help us walk a different path -- your straight and narrow way.

Then he spoke a parable to them, saying: "The ground of a certain rich man yielded plentifully." (Luke 12:16)
      Lord, he already had more than he could use. Help us recognize our plenty and share with those who have not.

"And he thought within himself, saying, 'What shall I do, since I have no room to store my crops?'" (Luke 12:17)
      Father, his thoughts were inward rather than toward you. Help us repent of being self-centered.

"So he said, 'I will do this: I will pull down my barns and build greater, and there I will store all my crops and my goods. And I will say to my soul, "Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years; take your ease; eat, drink, and be merry."' But God said to him, 'Fool! This night your soul will be required of you; then whose will those things be which you have provided?'" (Luke 12:18-20)
      Father, only you know the day and the hour when our souls will be required of us. Help us to be ready to give a good account on that day.

"So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God." (Luke 12:21)
      Holy Spirit, please help us lay up treasure in heaven.

Then he said to his disciples, "Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; nor about the body, what you will put on. Life is more than food, and the body is more than clothing. Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap, which have neither storehouse nor barn; and God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds? And which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? If you then are not able to do the least, why are you anxious for the rest? Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. If then God so clothes the grass, which today is in the field and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will He clothe you, O you of little faith? And do not seek what you should eat or what you should drink, nor have an anxious mind. 30For all these things the nations of the world seek after, and your Father knows that you need these things. But seek the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added to you. Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Sell what you have and give alms; provide yourselves money bags which do not grow old, a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches nor moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. (Luke 12:22-34)

Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, "Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down." (Revelation 12:10)
      Father, thank you that the accuser has been cast down out of heaven; please guide us by your Holy Spirit so that the accuser's every deception will be revealed to us.

"And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death." (Revelation 12:11)
      Jesus, help us overcome every obstacle by your blood and your love for us. Help us to be willing to lose everything for the sake of your name.

The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, and have done abominable iniquity; there is none who does good. (Psalm 53:1)
      LORD, protect us from the folly of unbelief -- of not trusting in you.

God looks down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there are any who understand, who seek God. (Psalm 53:2)
      Father, guide us back into your arms, into your ways -- give us understanding and a desire to seek you out.

Every one of them has turned aside; they have together become corrupt; there is none who does good, no, not one. (Psalm 53:3)
      Jesus, we have all turned aside at one time or another; help us return to you.

Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge, who eat up my people as they eat bread, and do not call upon God? (Psalm 53:4)
      Holy Spirit, have mercy on your people and guide us through this time -- keep us out of the clutches of the workers of iniquity.

There they are in great fear where no fear was, for God has scattered the bones of him who encamps against you; you have put them to shame, because God has despised them. (Psalm 53:5)
      LORD, put the workers of iniquity in great fear -- those who eat up your people and give no thought to them.

Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion! When God brings back the captivity of his people, let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad. (Psalm 53:6)
      Come soon, Lord Jesus; come soon!

"For My people have committed two evils: They have forsaken me, the fountain of living waters, and hewn themselves cisterns--broken cisterns that can hold no water." (Jeremiah 2:13)
      Jesus, you are the fount of living water, help us drink deeply of you.

Subject: A Titanic Birthday Party
Hi everyone
      Believe it or not, The Dock is nearly one year old... and to celebrate we're having a party! It's been an eventful, exciting, unexpected year - and there's much to celebrate...
      So we're getting together in the Pump House cafe on the exact anniversary of the day we smashed the champagne and declared The Dock 'open for business'... It may not be a typical one-year-old birthday party - probably slightly less jelly, not so many balloons and I'm not sure about hiring a magician - but we'll have a great night of snacks, friendship and stories from the past year.
      It would be great if you could join us! - consider this your official invitation:


- if you need directions to the Pump House cafe, click here: http://www.titanicsdock.com/how-to-get-here.aspx
- and if you could pop a quick RSVP back to this email address, it would really help Susan know how many scones to bake...(!)
Hope to see you there!

And it happened, as he spoke these things, that a certain woman from the crowd raised her voice and said to him, "Blessed is the womb that bore you, and the breasts which nursed you!" (Luke 11:27)
      Father, help us be spontaneous in our blessing and praise of Jesus as this woman was.

But he said, "More than that, blessed are those who hear the word of God and keep it!" (Luke 11:28 )
      Holy Spirit, please help us receive this blessing: help us hear God's word and keep it.

And while the crowds were thickly gathered together, he began to say, "This is an evil generation. It seeks a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah the prophet." (Luke 11:29)
      Jesus, this is an evil generation which is given over to self-indulgence and relativism. Have mercy on us and help us all recognize the signs of the times.

"For as Jonah became a sign to the Ninevites, so also the Son of Man will be to this generation." (Luke 11:30)
      Jesus, speak to this generation. Help us recognize you for who you are.

"The queen of the South will rise up in the judgment with the men of this generation and condemn them, for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and indeed a greater than Solomon is here." (Luke 11:31)
      Jesus, please help our children and grandchildren seek you out with the same determination that the Queen of the South had.

"The men of Nineveh will rise up in the judgment with this generation and condemn it, for they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and indeed a greater than Jonah is here." (Luke 11:32)
      Lord, have mercy on us and help us repent. Thank you for sending Jonah to Nineveh to call them to repentance. Help us hear and respond as the people of Nineveh did to those you send to us to call us to return to you your ways. Thank you.

"Then they came to Elim, where there were twelve wells of water and seventy palm trees; so they camped there by the waters." Exodus 15:27
      Lord Jesus, let the gathering of your people be a time and place of Elim springs where your people may find refreshment. When we return to our homes, let springs of living water flow out of us to our communities so that the weary and sin-sick may find rest.

A word received: Pray my people will hunger for my word.

Dear Partners in Prayer,
Peace be with you.
This is our weekly public prayer mail.
Thanksgivings:
      1) For the presence of God in our apartment.
      2) That Lydia has been accepted by the college of her choice.
      3) Praise God for what he does through the three of us, to transform lives.
      4) For Julie´s birthday celebration this week and her recent haircut.
      5) For our prayer support team; that would include you.
      6) That Bp. Mike and Linda Chapman are here.
Prayers:
      1) For the relationships and spiritual protection of missionaries and other diocesan team members in Peru, and our ministries, finances, resources, and priorities. Some situations have improved since last week, but more prayer is still needed.
      2) For the classes this week.
      3) For the current administrative needs of the seminary and the Diocese. And for the continuing expansion of on-line courses across Peru.
      4) That we would be able to keep on top of all the daily things that we need to do. There is a lot to do.
      5) For the construction on the new apartment building going up next door to ours. For safety for the workers, good building practices, and that the construction noise and dust would not be too disruptive in our lives.
      Countdown until the view from our kitchen window almost completely disappears (because of the construction): about two floors to go.
      Thank you for praying for us. Your praying is very important, really makes a difference for us, and I pray for you every day.
God bless you. In Christ,

So the angel who spoke with me said to me, "Proclaim, saying, 'Thus says the LORD of hosts: "I am zealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with great zeal. (Zechariah 1:14)
      Holy Father, we ask you to have great zeal for the Episcopal Church which is part of your New Jerusalem.

I am exceedingly angry with the nations at ease; for I was a little angry, and they helped--but with evil intent." (Zechariah 1:15)
      Jesus, protect your church and your people from all those who attack with evil intent. We know that we have sinned -- bring us back to you.

'Therefore thus says the LORD: "I am returning to Jerusalem with mercy; my house shall be built in it," says the LORD of hosts, "and a surveyor's line shall be stretched out over Jerusalem."' (Zechariah 1:16)
      Jesus, stretch out you surveyor's line over the Episcopal Church so that all, from the highest bishop to the lowest layman, can see how far we have departed from your word and your ways.

"Again proclaim, saying, 'Thus says the LORD of hosts: "My cities shall again spread out through prosperity; the LORD will again comfort Zion, and will again choose Jerusalem."'" (Zechariah 1:17)
      Holy Comforter, come and help us rebuild your church so that your people may again find comfort.

The LORD will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and strengthen your bones; you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail. (Isaiah 58:11)
      Father, we want to be that watered garden, let your living water flow out from us abundantly so that others can find refreshment.

Those from among you shall build the old waste places; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach, The Restorer of Streets to Dwell In. (Isaiah 58:12)
      LORD, please help us repair the breach and stand in the gap and intercede for your church and your people. Help us faithfully restore your church so that your little ones and all your people may dwell there.

A word received: There is no culture that is free of prejudice or contempt for others. I AM calling my people to recognize such attitudes in themselves and repent.

      Notes from the Front Line

*****       Loving the Lord by John Henry Jowett, 1863-1923
            Luke 10:21-28
      The secret of life is to love the Lord our God, and our neighbours as ourselves. But how are we to love the Lord? We cannot manufacture love. We cannot love to order. We cannot by an act of the will command its appearing. No, not in these ways is love created. Love is not a work, it is a fruit. It grows in suitable soils, and it is our part to prepare the soils. When the conditions are congenial, love appears, just as the crocus and the snowdrop appear in the congenial air of the spring.
      What, then, can we do? We can seek the Lord's society. We can think about Him. We can fill our imaginations with the grace of His life and service. We can be much with Him, talking to Him in prayer, singing to Him in praise, telling Him our yearnings and confessing to Him our defeats. And love will be quietly born. For this is how love is born between heart and heart. Two people are "much together," and love is born! And when we are much with the Lord, we are with One who already loves us with an everlasting love. We are with One who yearns for our love and who seeks in every way to win it. "We love Him because He first loved us." And when we truly love God, every other kind of holy love will follow. Given the fountain, the rivers are sure.

      As they were traveling along, Jesus went into a village. A woman named Martha welcomed him into her home. She had a sister named Mary. Mary sat at the Lord's feet and listened to him talk.
      But Martha was upset about all the work she had to do. So she asked, "Lord, don't you care that my sister has left me to do the work all by myself? Tell her to help me."
      The Lord answered her, "Martha, Martha! You worry and fuss about a lot of things. There's only one thing you need. Mary has made the right choice, and that one thing will not be taken away from her."
(Luke 10: 38-42)
      Jesus Lord, even while you were here on earth there were challenges facing those ministering for you, and we realize the importance of listening for your voice before we get busy doing. Lord, we pray for all of the ministry that is taking place in the Diocese of Peru. We pray for Fr. Shaw and Mother Julie and Lydia Mudge, as well as Bishop Mike Chapman and his wife, and Bishop Godfrey and his wife. And we pray for unity among the laity and the other clergy in the diocese that they may clearly hear your voice and follow you. We pray for everyone's spiritual protection. We pray for your peace that passes all understanding, that misunderstandings be cleared up and that unresolved issues be resolved. Thank you for your work in the hearts and minds of people, already this week. May the team of the Diocese of Peru keep going forward in the unity of the Holy Spirit, doing what You, Jesus, want them to do for the spread of the Gospel. Amen.

Also he spoke this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: (Luke 18:9)
      Holy Spirit, search our hearts and help us recognize wherever we trust in our own righteousness. Help us repent of that immediately. Help us repent of despising others. The only righteousness we can claim is what Jesus has done for us on the cross and by his resurrection.

"Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector." (Luke 18:10)
      Jesus, these two by the outward appearance are polar opposites. The Pharisee held up to great respect and the tax collector a despised traitor.

"The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, 'God, I thank You that I am not like other men--extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I possess.'" (Luke 18:11-12)
      Father, have mercy on us and set us free of self-satisfied prayers. Help us recognize and repent whenever we pray in this manner.

"And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, 'God, be merciful to me a sinner!'" (Luke 18:13)
      God, be merciful to me a sinner!

"I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted." (Luke 18:14)
      Jesus, please help us humble ourselves before you.

      Holy Spirit, move in our hearts and prayers and help us recognize our true condition.

      Father, help us come to you as little children. Help us receive your Spirit of adoption and humility.

      Holy Trinity, one God, thank you for calling us to repentance.

A word received: I want my people to pray for the rebuilding of my church.

PRAYER TABLE REPORT (St. Mary's of Lake Luzerne, Sat., Oct. 23, 11:15 a.m.-noon, prior to our weekly free community luncheon. It was a bright, sunny and cool day at the Parish Hall entrance. Deacon Alan Hart presided at His table this morning.)

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

TWO WOMEN (didn't give names) -- I asked if they wanted prayer this morning, and they cheerfully answered "That's OK, we're good." But I got up and stood with them and prayed for both women to have continued good health and happiness.

a-EDITH --- She is a return visitor to the table. She has asked for prayer in the past for her brother ROBERT and her sister GRACE and a friend (name withheld by request) who have all been battling cancer. Edith came for thanksgiving prayer that all three people have felt prayers answered and are in "good spirits," as she termed it. Edith also was thankful that in a recent visit to the doctor she was diagnosed with arthritis, NOT cancer. Edith was fearful that her pain was something worse than what it actually is. Thanks be to God that it is not.

PEGGY -- This member of our own church gave thanksgiving for recent answered prayers. Her son BRUCE, who has had considerable pain in his knees lately because of "an old football injury from long ago" has experienced a lot of healing and in her words, " ... is feeling a lot better!" We prayed in thanksgiving for God having clearly answered Peggy's prayers for healing for her son.

t,a -- LINDA -- Asked for prayers of healing for two friends, ANITA and JOAN, who are both ill with Alzheimer's Disease. She is heartbroken and feeling helpless that these two friends are slowly drifting away from her. We prayed not only for Anita and Joan but for Linda to find peace and hope as she stands by her friends. Please remember her in your prayers.

a,a -- JOHN and MARGE --- This lovely couple came forward asking for continued blessing on their marriage. They celebrated their 59th anniversary two days ago! Praise God.

Now it came to pass, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, that one of his disciples said to him, "Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples." (Luke 11:1)
      Lord, teach us to pray!

      Holy Spirit, you were moving in John's life even before he was born. Please move in our lives and hearts and teach us to pray as you taught John's disciples.

      Father, we want to come into your presence when we pray.

So he said to them, "When you pray, say: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name." (Luke 11:2a)
      Father, please help us keep your name holy; help us live into your holiness and the holiness of your name.

"Your kingdom come." (Luke 11:2b)
      Father, rule in our hearts and in our unruly affections.

"Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven." (Luke 11:2c)
      Father, we want to see your ways established in our communities and in our churches. We ask you to accomplish your full purpose for each of us. Thank you.

"Give us day by day our daily bread." (Luke 11:3)
      Father, thank you for this day's bread; thank you for this day's word. Feed us day by day with your word and your full provision for us.

"And forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who is indebted to us." (Luke 11:4a)
      Father, week by week we bring our sins to you; help us also accept and receive into our hearts your forgiveness of our sins. Help us release everyone we have held in the bondage of unforgiveness for their debts and any ways they have done harm to us.

"And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one." (Luke 11:4)b
      Father, send your Holy Spirit on us and guide our footsteps. Protect us from every trick and trap of the evil one. Thank you.

      Father, help us share with others the depth of your love for us and for them. Thank you.

Subject: Thanksgiving and prayers please.
God-morrow dear intercessors,
Well, it will be a year tomorrow that your prayers saved my life. It was a year tomorrow that the docs said that was all they could do and your prayers kicked in. Thank you so very very much.

Thank you also for your very effective prayers for last weekend at St. Stephens Cathedral Harrisburg. It was a good healing mission to teach that diocese to pray for the sick.

Monday, The trip into New York city was amazing. I went to see my friend Canon Andrew White, the vicar of Baghdad receive the civic courage prize for steadfast resistance to evil at great personal risk. It was an amazing evening. (FYI: Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer was awarded this posthumously.) A Nobel Laurette gave a wonderful keynote speech.

The highlight of the evening was the introduction of a young man who had been a hostage in Baghdad. He had been released because of Andrews negotiations. It was the first time that Andrew had actually met him. There was not a dry eye in the place. Andrew was very positive and very vocal about American soldiers in Baghdad and his meetings with Gen. Petraeus.

I would ask prayers personally for the one year anniversary of nearly dieing tomorrow Saturday 23rd Oct. I have just found out that due to H1N1, pneumonia and secondary pneumonia that my lungs/body then was diagnosed with ARDS. Acute Respiratory distress syndrome. I am still in a lot of pain in my thigh muscles... this pain has as yet not been diagnosed. It has been quite a year for Lynn and I.

I need you to know that the medics told me categorically this week that they all consider my healing a Miracle. They all said that the diagnosis a year ago was not good and that all the docs and nurses at Saratoga Hospital say the word miracle in regard to your affective prayers. THANK YOU DEAR SOULS...

Reading the info on ARDS I am totally amazed at what I have been through. More to the point I am totally amazed at what Lynn went through. After all I was in a coma! I find it strange that it has taken me a year to find out what was going on! Oh well.

Listen THANK YOU dear souls... for your prayers for Lynn and I.

A special thank you goes to Beth for keeping everyone updated and telling everyone how to pray.

Lynn and I thank you so very much for the gift of life given through Jesus Christ.

With tears in my eyes today God bless you all and thank you. YOUR prayers ARE effective... VERY
effective... KEEP PRAYING...for others.

Francis MacNutt says "People are dieing because people are not praying for them!" Well I rest my case.

The Lord loves you all and so do we. No doubt about that.

With much love and gratefulness. Lynn and Nigel+
Be well, God bless you Fr, Nigel+

Now it happened as they went that he entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed him into her house. (Luke 10:38 )
      Holy Spirit, guide us and help us welcome Jesus into our homes and into the life of our families.

And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and heard his word. (Luke 10:39)
      Jesus, come into our homes and into our lives and help us hear your word.

But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached him and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me." (Luke 10:40)
      Holy Father, please help our bishops, priests, deacons and lay leaders resist the "tyranny of the urgent" and spend time each day at Jesus' feet and in his arms listening to his words.

And Jesus answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her." (Luke 10:41-42)
      -Holy Spirit, please help us each day, help us this day to choose that good part. Guide us in putting down all those "good" things we do that distract us from spending time at Jesus' feet listening to his word. Thank you.



A word received: My people cry out to me for mercy -- there is mercy but there is also judgment. Pray for my people to come to the mercy seat in true repentance and humility.

She had never seen so much blood in an eye (from the hemorrhage in July) without a torn retina (which did not happen). I saw the retina specialist yesterday afternoon and he said I was good to go.

My eyes fail with tears,
My heart is troubled;
My bile is poured on the ground
Because of the destruction of the daughter of my people,
Because the children and the infants
Faint in the streets of the city.
(Lamentations 2:11)
Holy Spirit, give us hearts that truly grieve over the apostasy and destruction of the Episcopal Church.

They say to their mothers,
"Where is grain and wine?"
As they swoon like the wounded
In the streets of the city,
As their life is poured out
In their mothers' bosom.
(Lamentations 2:12)
Lord Jesus, feed the children of this land with daily bread and with your living word.

How shall I console you?
To what shall I liken you,
O daughter of Jerusalem?
What shall I compare with you, that I may comfort you,
O virgin daughter of Zion?
For your ruin is spread wide as the sea;
Who can heal you?
(Lamentations 2:13)
Lord Jesus Christ, you are the healer; put your hand on the Episcopal Church and console and comfort us.

Your prophets have seen for you
False and deceptive visions;
They have not uncovered your iniquity,
To bring back your captives,
But have envisioned for you false prophecies and delusions.
(Lamentations 2:14)
Holy Father, the church as been afflicted with false prophets and its leaders and teachers and people have believed delusions; have mercy on us.

All who pass by clap their hands at you;
They hiss and shake their heads
At the daughter of Jerusalem:
"Is this the city that is called
'The perfection of beauty,
The joy of the whole earth'?"
(Lamentations 2:15)
Holy Spirit, please help us lament the Episcopal Church's fall from grace and daily life it up to Jesus in prayer. Thank you.

After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands, (Revelation 7:9)
      Lord Jesus Christ, help us join that great throng bringing honor and glory and worship to you.

and crying out with a loud voice, saying, "Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!" (Revelation 7:10)
      Lord, salvation does belong to you. It is by your blood that we are saved.

All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying:
      "Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom,
      Thanksgiving and honor and power and might,
      Be to our God forever and ever.
      Amen."
(Revelation 7:11-12)
      Father, help us to worship you. Blessing and glory and wisdom are yours. Thanksgiving and honor and power and might are yours. You are our God forever and ever. Amen.

Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, "Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?" And I said to him, "Sir, you know." So he said to me, "These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. (Revelation 7:13-14)
      Jesus, we pray for all those who are going through great tribulation now for the sake of your name: strengthen them and carry them through to victory.

Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them. They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes." (Revelation 7:15-17)
      Jesus, shepherd us and bring us to fountains of living water.

      Father, wipe away our tears.

      Holy Spirit, come and anoint us.

      Holy Trinity, one God, thank you.

I will praise you, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will tell of all your marvelous works. (Psalm 9:1)
      Father, please give me an undivided heart so that I may praise you with my whole heart.

      Jesus, guide me by your Holy Spirit so that I tell of all your marvelous works.

I will be glad and rejoice in you; I will sing praise to your name, O Most High. (Psalm 9:2)
      Holy Spirit, fill my heart and my mind and my mouth with the praise of Jesus and his holy name.

When my enemies turn back, they shall fall and perish at your presence. (Psalm 9:3)
      Jesus, be with me in my going out and my coming in; by day and by night; at morning and at evening; at all times and in all places. So fill me with your presence and the power of your name that the enemy will be forced to turn back and be defeated by you. Thank you.

For you have maintained my right and my cause; you sat on the throne judging in righteousness. (Psalm 9:4)
      Jesus, let your righteous judgments be manifest in the Episcopal Church and in this diocese.

You have rebuked the nations, you have destroyed the wicked; you have blotted out their name forever and ever. (Psalm 9:5)
      Holy Father, come with the cleansing fire of your Holy Spirit and renew the Episcopal Church. Move throughout this diocese and purge us of our sin. Thank you.

The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. And those who know your name will put their trust in you; for you, LORD, have not forsaken those who seek you. (Psalm 9:9-10)
      Jesus, we fly to your bosom; you are our refuge and the rock on which we stand; you do not move nor are you shaken. Fill us anew with your gospel truth; help us to sing your praises. Thank you.

A word received: I want my people to know the extreme love I have for them. I want them to look at my cross and know (underline know) that I love them beyond any measure they can imagine.

Subject: Mudge Spring Public Prayer Mail: 17 October 2010
Dear Partners in Prayer, Peace be with you.
This is our weekly public prayer mail.
Thanksgivings:
      1) For the rescue of the miners in Chile. That was awesome. Mining is important for Peru, as well.
      2) For our friends, relatives, and advisors. I can´t tell you too much, how much each of you mean to us. You are awesome.
      3) Praise God for what he does through the three of us, to transform lives.
      4) For Julie, and not just because it is her birthday this coming week.
Prayers:
      1) For the relationships of missionaries and other diocesan team members in Peru, and our ministries, finances, resources, and priorities. If you had one prayer to pray, this would be it, and please keep it up, daily.
      As can happen from time to time in any ministry situation, for some unknown reason in the past week and a half, there has been at least one major misunderstanding and some difficult personnel issues that need prayer, among various clergy and lay leaders, as people try to move forward making disciples. Let's pray to get the team of the Diocese of Peru past this, keeping focused on God's vision for us, going forward in the unity of the Holy Spirit, and doing what Jesus wants us to do for the spread of the Gospel.
      2) For the classes this week, and for the class schedule in November.
      3) For the current administrative needs of the seminary and the Diocese. And for the continuing expansion of the seminary programs and on-line ministry across Peru.
      4) That we would be able to keep on top of all the daily things that we need to do. There is a lot to do.
      5) For the results of Lydia's college application process.
      6) For the construction on the new apartment building going up next door to ours. For safety for the workers, good building practices, and that the construction noise and dust would not be too disruptive in our lives.
      Countdown until the view from our kitchen window almost completely disappears (because of the construction): about three floors to go.
      Thank you for praying for us. Your praying really makes a difference, and I pray for you every day.
God bless you. In Christ,
Shaw, and on behalf of Julie and Lydia
Missionaries of the Diocese of Albany, serving in Lima, Peru.

Subject: Titanic Quarter [Belfast] prayer update... and an invite!
Hello prayer warriors!
      Many thanks for all your continued support in prayer... it is vastly appreciated and very necessary!
      First of all, the invite! I'd love to get you all in the same place at the same time - so you can meet me (and Susan!) face to face and see who you're praying for! I'd also love to show you around the Titanic Quarter so you can see what an exciting place it is!
      So here's my suggestion: next Sunday (24th October) would it be possible for you prayer warriors to join the Dock Walk which meets in the Streat cafe at the Odyssey Arena at 3:33pm. Once the walk is over (usually by about 5:30pm at the very latest) we could have a prayer-team get-together by getting a bite to eat in La Tasca in the Odyssey - all tapas will be on the house!
      I know Sundays are busy days - so you might be free for one or the other but not both. But if you're able to make it to the Streat at 3:33 OR La Tasca at 5:30 - or both! - it would be fantastic to meet up with you all.
      OK that's the invite out of the way - now on to prayer!
      Two specific areas this month:
      1. Protection and health for Susan and myself - it does sometimes feel as if we are under some attack in this area! Susan is doing better but still not completely well and still has bouts of dizziness sometimes. My eye is also still giving problems and I'll be having some scans over the next few weeks to hopefully get to the root of the problem. All this is of course not to be a moaning minnie - but to ask for your prayers for good health, protection, and strength!
      2. 'People of peace' - I'm sure you're familiar with the concept of the 'person of peace' - the local individual that Jesus commanded his disciples to find in each village so that they might be welcomed, resourced and have a voice in that community. There is a real need for a person of peace in all the areas of the Titanic Quarter community:
            - a person of peace who lives in the TQ
            - a person of peace in the Metropolitan College
            - a person of peace in the Titanic Quarter Ltd developers
            - a person of peace in the TQ business community
            - a person of peace in the TQ tourism industry
            - a person of peace in each of the denominations who are considering joining in the work of The Dock.
      Whew! - plenty to pray for!
      Thanks everyone and hopefully we'll get to meet up next week.
Chris

10/17/2010, #17, 4th Quarter 2010

But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, (2 Timothy 3:14)
      Father, thank you for the teachers you have given me. Please help me by your Holy Spirit to apply what they have taught me.

and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. (2 Timothy 3:15)
      Jesus, I grew up without any knowledge of you. Thank you for helping me find you as a young man. Thank you for baptizing me with your Holy Spirit so that I could learn from your Holy Scriptures.

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, (2 Timothy 3:16)
      Holy Spirit, please continue daily to teach me sound doctrine, reprove me, correct me, and instruct me in righteousness by your Holy Scriptures.

that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:17)
      Holy Spirit, continue to equip me with your word day by day. Thank you.

I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. (2 Timothy 4:1-2)
      Holy Father, please help every priest, deacon, missionary, and evangelist in this diocese take this charge to heart. Write it on their hearts.

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. (2 Timothy 4:3-4)
      Lord Jesus Christ, the time has come and your church has become a haven for those who pursue false teaching. Come and cleanse your church! Lord, you called St. Francis to rebuild your church; call many such men and women in our day to rebuild your church. Renew in our day the wonders of your Pentecost. Thank you for the ministry of those in the Franciscans of the Holy Cross, the Sisters of St. Mary, the Daughters of the King, and the Brotherhood of St. Andrew. Raise up many vocations to these orders.

But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry. (2 Timothy 4:5)
      Holy Spirit, please help each of us in this diocese fulfill the ministry you have given us. You have called us; help each of us discern and respond to your call. Thank you.

Unless the Lord builds the house,
They labor in vain who build it;
Unless the Lord guards the city,
The watchman stays awake in vain.
It is vain for you to rise up early,
To sit up late,
To eat the bread of sorrows;
For so He gives His beloved sleep.
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one's youth.
Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them;
They shall not be ashamed,
But shall speak with their enemies in the gate.
(Psalm 127)

      Thank you, Lord, for filling up our quiver.

I always keep the Lord in front of me.
When He is by my side, I cannot be moved.
That is why my heart is glad and my soul rejoices.
My body rests securely.
You make the path of life known to me.
Complete joy is in your presence.
Pleasures are by your side forever.
(Psalm 16: 8-9 and 11)
      Lord, we thank You for the ministry of the Mudges and for all the blessings that they bring to those whom they serve. We know that every success comes from their relationships with You. They always keep You in front of them and they look for your guidance everyday. Thank You that their hearts are glad and their souls rejoice. You give them rest as they have confidence that they are following the path that You have set out for them. May they forever have your joy and peace as they share their gifts with all whom they encounter. Amen.

Then he brought me back to the door of the temple; and there was water, flowing from under the threshold of the temple toward the east, for the front of the temple faced east; the water was flowing from under the right side of the temple, south of the altar. (Ezekiel 47:1)
      LORD, let your living water flow from your altar into our hearts.

He brought me out by way of the north gate, and led me around on the outside to the outer gateway that faces east; and there was water, running out on the right side. (Ezekiel 47:2)
      Jesus, bring us to the place you want us to be.

And when the man went out to the east with the line in his hand, he measured one thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the water came up to my ankles. (Ezekiel 47:3)
      Holy Spirit, help us go deeper, farther.

Again he measured one thousand and brought me through the waters; the water came up to my knees. (Ezekiel 47:4a)
      Holy Spirit, help us go deeper, farther.

Again he measured one thousand and brought me through; the water came up to my waist. (Ezekiel 47:4b)
      Holy Spirit, help us go deeper, farther.

Again he measured one thousand, and it was a river that I could not cross; for the water was too deep, water in which one must swim, a river that could not be crossed. (Ezekiel 47:5)
      Father, bid me take my feet off the bottom and flow with you Spirit. Carry me along in the current of your Holy Spirit.

He said to me, "Son of man, have you seen this?" Then he brought me and returned me to the bank of the river. (Ezekiel 47:6)
      Father, please help us see what you want us to see.

When I returned, there, along the bank of the river, were very many trees on one side and the other. Then he said to me: "This water flows toward the eastern region, goes down into the valley, and enters the sea. When it reaches the sea, its waters are healed. And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever the rivers go, will live. There will be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters go there; for they will be healed, and everything will live wherever the river goes. It shall be that fishermen will stand by it from En Gedi to En Eglaim; they will be places for spreading their nets. Their fish will be of the same kinds as the fish of the Great Sea, exceedingly many. But its swamps and marshes will not be healed; they will be given over to salt. Along the bank of the river, on this side and that, will grow all kinds of trees used for food; their leaves will not wither, and their fruit will not fail. They will bear fruit every month, because their water flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for medicine." (Ezekiel 47:7-12)
      Jesus, bring us to that fruitful place. Bring us to the place where we will produce the fruit of your Holy Spirit.

"He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God."' (Revelation 2:7)
      Jesus, help us hear what your Spirit is saying to the churches; help us eat of the tree of life; help us savor its fruit.

And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. (Revelation 22:1)
      Jesus, show us that pure rive of water of life that proceeds from your throne.

In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. (Revelation 22:2)
      Jesus, bring healing to the nations; bring healing to this nation.

And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. (Revelation 22:3)
      Father, set us free of the curse so that we can fruitfully serve Jesus.

They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. (Revelation 22:4)
      Jesus, we long to see you face to face.

There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever. (Revelation 22:5)
      Jesus, you are our light and our salvation; help us take each step by your light.

Then he said to me, "These words are faithful and true." And the Lord God of the holy prophets sent His angel to show His servants the things which must shortly take place. (Revelation 22:6)
      Jesus, you are faithful and true: help us be like you. Thank you.

      A word received: Pray for the refining fire of my Holy Spirit.
