Update on Fr. Nigel 8:49 AM
Wednesday 12/16/09

On Monday Fr. Nigel had a minor procedure on his bedsore to help with the healing process. It has caused him a lot of pain and discomfort, so please keep the healing of the bed sore in your prayers. Although he had that procedure on Monday, he was up on Tuesday and walked a short distance. He reports that he experienced no nausea or dizziness while he was walking. PRAISE GOD for that healing. He has not been able to do much else because the pain from the bedsore has sapped him of his strength.

Please pray for:
      Complete healing of the tissue involved with the bedsore and relief from the pain being caused by the bedsore
      Continued healing of his lungs so that he can be weaned from the oxygen
      Peace for Fr. Nigel as he struggles with anxiousness to be home
       Peace and strength for Lynn as she journeys down this road with Fr. Nigel
       Healing of Fr. Nigel so that he may be home for Christmas

Please give thanks to our Lord for His healing touch in so many ways for Fr. Nigel, but especially for the relief from the dizziness and nausea.

Thank you Lord for the prayers of all the faithful friends, of the acquaintances and of those who don’t even know Fr. Nigel. Thank you Lord for listening to the cry of your people. Praise God, Praise God, Praise God.

I’ve shared this story before. Years ago, I was on a village ramble in Oxfordshire. We came upon a weeping willow on the bank of a stream. Part of the root system was submerged in the stream, and part encased in soil. Tears were dripping from each leaf.

Dear Heavenly Father,
There is a stream, clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb. We beseech You to send a stream of that living water into the spirits of Nigel and Lynn. May they be so hungry for Your living water that the very blood vessels of their bodies will carry it. May living water flow through their spirits and to every cell in their bodies. May they rest in You and be healed. Amen.

Psalm 49:5-9

Why should I fear in the days of evil, when the iniquity at my heels surrounds me? (Psalm 49:5)
      Jesus, you have not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7)

Those who trust in their wealth and boast in the multitude of their riches, (Psalm 49:6)
      Father, my boast is of your son Jesus and his cross and resurrection.

None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him– (Psalm 49:7)
      Holy Spirit, thank you for the many things that I am unable to do in my own strength, but that I can do with your power.

For the redemption of their souls is costly, and it shall cease forever– (Psalm 49:8 )
      Jesus, thank you for paying the cost of my redemption.

That he should continue to live eternally, and not see the Pit. (Psalm 49:9)
      For I know that my redeemer lives, and he shall stand at last on the earth; and after my skin is destroyed, this I know, that in my flesh I shall see God, whom I shall see for myself, and my eyes shall behold, and not as a stranger. How my heart yearns within me! (Job 19:25-27)

Psalm 123

December 16, 2009

1 I lift up my eyes to you,
to you whose throne is in heaven.
We praise You, Lord.
2 As the eyes of slaves look to the hand of their master,
as the eyes of a maid look to the hand of her mistress,
so our eyes look to the LORD our God,
till he shows us his mercy.
We thank You for the treasures You have entrusted to us.
3 Have mercy on us, O LORD, have mercy on us,
for we have endured much contempt.
We relinquish our enemies to You.
4 We have endured much ridicule from the proud,
much contempt from the arrogant.
Bless our enemies, Lord, known and unknown.
