Bishops-elect

March 31, 2008

Canon Eugene Sutton was elected bishop of Maryland, and Canon Paul Lambert was elected bishop suffragan of Dallas.

Father,

We pray that Eugene and Paul will be made holy through Your Spirit, will be obedient to the gospel, and will have their sins covered by the sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ, so that grace and peace may be multiplied to Maryland and Dallas.  Amen.

The Anglican Communion

March 31, 2008

O God, be with Your people in the Anglican Communion as they walk through a  deluge of wordly cravings, envies, and boasts.  May their shepherds hear You speak, act in faith, and lead them on dry land in the midst of the sea.  Amen. 

Exodus 14:29, 1 John 2:16 


Speaking out

March 31, 2008

Several brave souls have challenged the validity of the depositions of Bishops Cox and Schofield.

Dear Jesus,

Come to Bishop Howe, Bishop Lawrence, the Standing Committee of South Carolina, Father Eaton, Mr. Sutton, and Ms. Busch.  Do not leave them orphaned.  Love them and bless them, we pray.  Amen.

John 14:18-21


John 14:15-18

March 31, 2008

“If you love me, keep my commandments.” (John 14:15)
      Holy Spirit, please help our love for Jesus overflow into keeping his commandments.

“And I will pray the Father, and he will give you another helper, that he may abide with you forever–” (John 14:16)
      Father, we join with Jesus in asking for the help of the Holy Spirit today.

“the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him; but you know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.” (John 14:17)
      Jesus, please set the Episcopal Church free from looking to the world for what it should do so that we may receive your Holy Spirit of truth.

“I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.” (John 14:18)
      Father, please help all of us in the Episcopal Church receive your Spirit of Adoption by whom we may cry out to you, “Abba, Dad.” (From Romans 8:15)

John 14:1-7, Exodus 14:13-14, and Isaiah 59:16

March 30, 2008

“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in me. (John 14:1)
      Jesus, I offer you the burdens of my heart.

In my father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. (John 14:2)
      Jesus, I make the choice to trust you for your provision.

      A word received: Don’t be afraid — look to me for sustenance and rest.

And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to myself; that where I am, there you may be also. (John 14:3)
      Come soon, Lord Jesus; I long to be received into your arms.

And where I go you know, and the way you know.” (John 14:4)
      Holy Spirit, I trust you will show me the way to Jesus day by day.

Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going, and how can we know the way?” (John 14:5)
      Father, thank you for Pentecost and for pouring out your Holy Spirit so that we can know the way to Jesus.

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:6)
      Jesus, please write this verse on the hearts and minds of the leaders and teachers of the Episcopal Church.

“If you had known me, you would have known my father also; and from now on you know him and have seen him.” (John 14:7)
      Holy Spirit, help the leaders and teachers of the Episcopal Church know Jesus as he is so that they can know the Father as well. Help them set aside their ideology and political correctness so that they can know Jesus.

And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. The LORD will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.” (Exodus 14:13-14)
      Thank you, LORD, for winning the victory for us.

He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor; (Isaiah 59:16)
      Holy Spirit, please raise up more intercessors for this diocese and for the Episcopal Church.

Sunday: 111, 112, 113: Exodus 14:5-22; 1 John 1:1-7; John 14:1-7
Monday: 4, 7: Exodus 14:21-31; 1 Peter 1:1-12; John 14:(1-7)8-17

+Ernest — for his kids, the neighborhood and its children
the Bus Driver — I went to the door of the bus to tell him that we were praying for him, and for his wife to come back to him daily. He said, “That will be a miracle, but God is in the miracle business.” Big smile.
Pat — “I look for you every Saturday.” prayed for her family.
+Rafael and +Rafael (his teenage son) — prayed for health and happiness.
+Esther — prayed for her, her family and friends
