1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. Psalm 23:(NKJV)
Jesus, come and shepherd me today - shepherd my thoughts and desires.
2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. Psalm 23:(NKJV)
Jesus, please help me lie down in your pastures and find still waters. Lord, lead me to a time and place of Elim Springs (Exodus 15:27).
3 He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name's sake. Psalm 23:(NKJV)
Jesus, please restore what the enemy has stolen from my life and bring me to your righteous paths.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. Psalm 23:(NKJV)
Jesus, I have walked through that valley and found your faithful mercies holding me up. Thank you.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. Psalm 23:(NKJV)
Lord, thank you that I can return to your table and receive your anointing. Truly I have been blessed and my cup runs over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the LORD Forever. Psalm 23:(NKJV)
Jesus, thank you that you follow close behind me and come between me and my past sins and failures.
1 The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1 (NKJV)
LORD, thank you for giving me daily light and strength, even when I have been afraid.
A Word Received: Let my rod and staff guide you through every challenge.

St. Ann's Amsterdam
DEACON ALAN and DEACON MARYCAROL -- We were blessed with another sunny (and HOT!) Prayer Table this morning, July 27, on the lawn in front of our church on Division Street. We had 5 visitors to the table -- all women. NANCY came and was appreciative of the bag of free, non-perishable food we offer plus some articles of free, used clothing we offer. IRENE took a bag of the food as well. ARIANA came to the table this morning specifically to ask for prayer for help and guidance from the Lord over a very personal situation. She was accompanied by her friend BECKY, who suggested she come to the table. ARIANA also took a wooden cross to wear along with the prayer. Another very poignant moment came when we were visited by another first-timer named MIR (short for Miriam.) She, too, was drawn to the table for prayer after it was recommended to her by one of our parishioners. MIR asked for prayer that members of her family would draw closer to Jesus and accept Him as their savior. MIR thanked us for the cross and the prayer, and as she was walking away she added, "Thank you for what you're doing out here."
We plan to resume the Services From the Reserved Sacrament at
Montgomery Cy Correctional Facility in September or October, depending
on which direction the COVID-19 virus decides to take.
Please continue to pray for these neighborhood ministries. Your
intercessory prayers are felt -- and they are appreciated! God bless
