My father-in-law used say that Jesus was writing: "Where is the man?" Lord, please help us speak the truth in love.
And one cried to another and said: "Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts; The whole earth is full of his glory!" (Isaiah 6:3)
Help us cry out to one another your holiness, LORD.
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)
Holy Spirit, clean up the language we use toward one another.
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 6:7)
Lord, touch our lips with the fire of your Holy Spirit and purge away our sin.
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 )
Jesus, please help me to respond to your call.
Psalm 38:21-22 WORD: I have heard your cry and I will answer you.
WORD: I AM the Good Shepherd -- keep coming back to me.

***** Hi Torre: A very, very close friend of mine named Russ Hawkins, who lives in Port Crane, visited Archdeacon Barbara Hanstine today (Tue 12/9/2014) and prayed for her at my request. He said she told him she is probably going to go home and is feeling much better. I thought you would like to know there has been healing. Thanks be to God. And thank you for prayer warriors like my friend Russ. -- Deacon Alan Hart

***** Dear Friends and Family:
As I write this, it is either raining, sleeting or snowing. And windy. Hope you are all warm and safe as we are. We are looking forward to Christmas this year in a special way. May each of you be blessed and enjoy a richer, deeper relationship with God this Christmas season. Here is the link for our blog: http://kingdomartsministry.com
