[I am recovering now from the right knee replacement in June and am starting the prayer notes again. There are MANY prayer table reports that have come in during the past two months. I am afraid that I just can't get them all out to you, but I have appreciated them. My Inbox has gotten totally out of control with over 1,900 entries. Serious weeding is necessary. Torre]
And as they went to tell His disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, "Rejoice!" So they came and held Him by the feet and worshiped Him. (Matthew 28:9-10)
Jesus, please come and meet us with your word of joy so that we too may fall at your feet and worship you.
Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid. Go and tell My brethren to go to Galilee, and there they will see Me." (Matthew 28:9-10)
Holy Spirit, please help us fearlessly go and deliver Jesus' word to the Brethren.
When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. (Acts 2:1)
Father, please bring us to this same accord throughout this diocese. Thank you.
