1 As the deer pants for the water brooks, So pants my soul for You, O God. 2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God? Psalm 42:1-2 (NKJV)
Jesus, I long for more of you. I thirst for more of you.
3 My tears have been my food day and night, While they continually say to me, "Where is your God?" Psalm 42:3 (NKJV)
Lord, I grieve for your church and this nation in this timee of division. Where are you in the confusion we are experiencing?
4 When I remember these things, I pour out my soul within me. For I used to go with the multitude; I went with them to the house of God, With the voice of joy and praise, With a multitude that kept a pilgrim feast. Psalm 42:4 (NKJV)
Father, there was a time when we could go into your house with many others and no roped off pews. Restore us to the pilgrim feast.
5 Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him For the help of His countenance. Psalm 42:5 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, quiet my soul so that I can hope in God and praise you.
6 O my God, my soul is cast down within me; Therefore I will remember You from the land of the Jordan, And from the heights of Hermon, From the Hill Mizar. Psalm 42:6 (NKJV)
LORD, my soul is cast down as I look at your church and this nation. Help me remember what you have done in the past so that I can see what you are doing in this present time.
7 Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls; All Your waves and billows have gone over me. Psalm 42:7 (NKJV)
Jesus, all your waves and billows have gone over me; pluck me out of the deep as you did Peter what he came to you on the water.
8 The LORD will command His lovingkindness in the daytime, And in the night His song shall be with me-- A prayer to the God of my life. Psalm 42:8 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, give me prayers in the day and in the night season.
A Word Received: I Long for my people to hunger and thirst for me. Leave aside your grief for what is dead and dying. Come to me with hope for what I will do in the future.

DEACON ALAN and DEACON MARYCAROL -- Saint Ann's of Amsterdam's Prayer Table report for Monday, Jan. 11 -- After three weeks of not having the table in operation because of a holiday, COVID-19 testing (for US; we were both negative!) and a snow event, the Prayer Table was open this morning -- indoors in the Parish Hall due to bone-chilling cold temperatures. Two women -- CAROL and NANCY -- came by and got prayer, free non-perishable food and free clean, used clothing. Both women were glad to get "the works." Nancy is particularly distressed these days over the spread of the virus as well as what transpired at the Capitol last Wednesday. She is fearful that something similar will happen in Washington on the day of the inauguration. We prayed against any further violence on January 20 as our country moves forward.
We are asking if anyone would like to donate to our newest wrinkle to the table. MaryCarol has suggested, and Father Neal has approved, that we may begin passing out feminine hygiene products to women in our neighborhood who are in need of them. If you would like to donate to this cause, please see her and make your wishes known. God bless you all!
