There is a balm in Gilead
     Lord, come and heal your land and your church.

BE THOU MY VISION -- My Favorite Irish Hymn!
     Holy Spirit, please give us clarity of sight to see the next step.

who proceedeth from the Father and the Son; (Nicene Creed)
     Holy Spirit, thank you for helping us know both the Father and the Son!

22 Now while they were staying in Galilee, Jesus said to them, "The Son of Man is about to be betrayed into the hands of men, 23 and they will kill Him, and the third day He will be raised up." And they were exceedingly sorrowful. Matthew 17:22-23 (NKJV)
     Jesus, I thank you that you have overcome every betrayal with your resurrection power.

27 "Nevertheless, lest we offend them, go to the sea, cast in a hook, and take the fish that comes up first. And when you have opened its mouth, you will find a piece of money; take that and give it to them for Me and you." Matthew 17:27 (NKJV)
     Jesus, thank you for the many "fish" you sent to Jean and me through the years.

14 Now the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. Revelation 21:14 (NKJV)
     Lord, rebuild your church on the walls of apostolic faith and teaching.

     Father, restore us to your life and hope of glory.

126 It is time for You to act, O LORD, For they have regarded Your law as void. 127 Therefore I love Your commandments More than gold, yes, than fine gold! Psalm 119:126-127 (NKJV)
     Come soon, LORD. Help us love your commandments.

A Word Received: I ask you to love and do what I command.

     DEACON ALAN and DEACON MARYCAROL -- (Prayer Table report for Monday, Nov. 16) -- Only two women -- CAROL and NANCY -- came by for prayer, food and clothing this day. We set up indoors in the Parish Hall due to the harsh wind and bitter cold. We don't want our neighbors who come to the table to be subjected to bad weather outdoors. Join us in praying for these two women, especially NANCY, who is close to being terrified by the resurgence of the COVID-19 virus. She is afraid if she gets sick she will not survive.
     Just wanted all you intercessors out there to know that next Monday we will begin handing out larger quantities of the free, non-perishable food we offer, to whoever walks or drives by. (Up to now we have offered plastic bags of about 10 or 12 items; one bag per person.) But we had a meeting yesterday with Father Neal and Jody Demers concerning the best way to get the large amount of food we have collected (that includes a great deal of food donated by our Boy Scouts troop) distributed to the neighbors out there who need it. We had planned to have one, single Food Giveaway Day soon, but there are so many things going on in the next few weeks that we thought it best to start advertising it after New Year's on our outdoor sign and in the newspaper. However, after thinking it over some more, we decided to start giving out larger portions of food to families beginning this Monday, Nov. 23 … and on succeeding Mondays whenever the weather cooperates. Ideally, we'd like to set up on the front sidewalk so people walking and driving by will see us and stop for food. The important thing is to get this wholesome food into the hands of our neighbors who need it.
     God bless you all!
