As requested here is an update:

Thank you again for all your prayers. They are defiantly working. I have been reading the emails that Beth put out, I have been deeply touched hearing about what went on when I was in a coma. The good news is that I am off the walker and now use a cane. This is such a step forward, if you will pardon the pun!!! I only need oxygen when I sleep and when winded during the day. I have been put on two new medications that is causing a lot of nausea, not nice. I am sleeping well. The four wounds on my torso have healed well but the pressure sore is still unpleasant. I am told by the visiting nurse that it is healing the way it is supposed to.

I started PT at the new medical facility here in Greenwich. They really pushed me on several machines and spent quite a time on the parallel bars working on balance. They had me stand on a sponge and look up…I nearly fell over… a few time. It felt good to be able to do all the exercises given to me to do. All being well and baring no set backs, with the doctors permission, I hope to start work again on March 1st and preach on March 2nd at the 10am healing service. Hope to see you there. felling very nauseous right now… waiting for a phone call from the doc.

Thank you so very much for continued prayer coverage. My lungs still need them. They will be reviewed again in May so I will be on oxygen at least until then. I am told by pulmonary that it will take a year for my lungs to heal!

God bless you, and thank you, so many have been so kind.
In the healing love of Jesus,
Fr. Nigel+

Hebrews 11:37-12:2

February 4, 2010

They were stoned, they were sawn in two, were tempted, were slain with the sword. They wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins, being destitute, afflicted, tormented– (Hebrews 11:37)
      Lord Jesus, we pray for all those who by faith have been driven into exile from the Episcopal Church — that you will guide them and provide for them.

of whom the world was not worthy. They wandered in deserts and mountains, in dens and caves of the earth. (Hebrews 11:38 )
      Father, please bring back all who have been driven away from the Episcopal Church; make a way for them.

And all these, having obtained a good testimony through faith, did not receive the promise, (Hebrews 11:39)
      Thank you, Father, for all those in ages past who lived by faith and waited in hope for your promises. Help us to be steady as they were. Father, thank you that we have received the promise in your son Jesus.

God having provided something better for us, that they should not be made perfect apart from us. (Hebrews 11:40)
      Holy Spirit, thank you for giving us a living hope that we shall all be joined together in the glory of the resurrection.

Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, (Hebrews 12:1)
      Lord Jesus, please help us run the race so that we may obtain the prize. Help us bring our bodies into subjection so that we are not disqualified from the race. Thank you for all those who were faithful witnesses to us; thank you for surrounding us with that great cloud of witnesses.

looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:2)
      Holy Spirit, please help us recognize the joy that is set before us and endure all for the hope of life forever in the presence of Jesus. Thank you.

      A word received: Keep your eyes on me.

Mississippi diocesan council

February 4, 2010

The Mississippi diocesan council convenes this weekend.

Colossians 1:10
And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God.

Dear Heavenly Father,
At our baptism, the seed of Your Son was planted in our spirits. We pray that His seed will be established in the spirits of the Christians throughout the Episcopal Diocese of Mississippi, that He will direct their personal lives and corporate life, that they may grow in the knowledge of God, and be transformed into His image.
Oh, to look into the face of Jesus, to be one with the Holy Spirit, and to commune with You, Father!
Give the diocesan council of Mississippi the spirit of revelation that they may know You better. Enlighten their eyes that they may know the hope to which You have called them.
May heaven and earth converge, and the diocese proclaim Your majesty with all of the angels and archangels:
Holy, holy, holy is the Lord. The whole earth is full of His glory. Tupelo, Mississippi is full of His glory. Holy is the Lord. Amen. Amen. Amen.
Isaiah 6:3, Ephesians 1:17-18

Preparation for worship

February 4, 2010

Ezekiel 44:17-18, regarding the Levitical priests
“When they enter the gateway to the inner courtyard, they must wear only linen clothing. They must wear no wool while on duty in the inner courtyard or in the Temple itself. They must wear linen turbans and linen undergarments. They must not wear anything that would cause them to perspire.

O Lord, may we surrender our burdens to You as we come into Your presence. Amen.
