I spent the last wonderful week in Virginia visiting our son Brereton and playing with his dog Luna. Torre
10 He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much; and he who is unjust in what is least is unjust also in much. Luke 16:10 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, help us to be faithful in even the least of our responsibilities.
13 No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon." Luke 16:13 (NKJV)
Jesus, in the days ahead, help us serve only you.
14b And so we went toward Rome. 15 And from there, when the brethren heard about us, they came to meet us as far as Appii Forum and Three Inns. When Paul saw them, he thanked God and took courage. Acts 28:14b-15 (NKJV)
Father, help us go forth to encourage the brethren.
23 So when they had appointed him a day, many came to him at his lodging, to whom he explained and solemnly testified of the kingdom of God, persuading them concerning Jesus from both the Law of Moses and the Prophets, from morning till evening. Acts 28:23 (NKJV)
Jesus, whether we are bound or free, help us share the hope of eternal life that is in us.
1 God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1 (NKJV)
God, you are our refuge and strength in this time of division and trouble.
2 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 (NKJV)
Jesus, I make the choice to trust in you no matter what is shaken and unsettled.

DEACON ALAN and DEACON MARYCAROL -- (Saint Ann's of Amsterdam; Prayer Table report for Monday, Nov. 9)
On an absolutely gorgeous summer-like day we had 6 women come to the weekly Prayer Table, and we set it up on the front lawn. It was so nice out that more people than usual were out walking in our neighborhood, and we were delighted to see the six visitors. REBECCA came for prayer. This woman has had so much misfortune lately, and she came this day with a new one. (Recently she came for prayer after injuring herself in a bad fall at work.) Now, she has to have surgery this Friday on her throat because she is having trouble swallowing and it is painful for her to do so. And she is frightened about it all. She got prayer for successful surgery and for complete healing. CAROL came and took some winter clothing and a bag of non-perishable food. NANCY came shortly afterward and did the same. MADEA and MARIA came together and took bags of food and thanked us for being out there. Just before closing things down, CORRINE came to the table. She is a young woman who just arrived in Amsterdam after living in Albany. She was stunned that our church was giving out food and clothing for free! We told her our specialty is prayer, and she got prayer for safety, protection and good health as she begins a new life in our community. She also took one of the wooden crosses made by Dennis Adams of North Carolina. We invited her to our services this Sunday.
God bless you all and thank you for your intercessory prayers for this ministry.
