The White House

May 25, 2010

Dear Father,
I acknowledge the sins of my ancestors and my own sins in the USA. We persecuted the Native Americans and stole their land. We persecuted African slaves and stole their freedom. We warred against one another. We have oppressed other nations through military, trade, and financial means. Our greed is great. Have mercy, Lord. Have mercy.
I pray that all who work and live in the White House will be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth: There is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all men. Christ Jesus gave himself as a ransom for the United States of America.
Christ Jesus is the Truth. We speak the name of Christ Jesus over the Executive Residence, West Wing, Cabinet Room, Roosevelt Room, East Wing, and the Old Executive Office Building, especially the executive offices of the President Obama and Vice President Biden.
Truth to all six floors! Truth to the grounds! Truth to the press corps! Truth! Truth! Truth!

1 Timothy 2:1-8

Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, (1 Timothy 2:1)
      Father, please raise up intercessors in every parish in the Diocese of Albany and the Diocese of Down and Dromore.

for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. (1 Timothy 2:2)
      Jesus we join you in praying for Barack our president, David our governor, and Bryon our mayor. Please bless them, their ministries, and their families.

For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our savior, (1 Timothy 2:3)
      Holy Spirit, please help us recognize and adhere to all that is good and acceptable in your sight.

who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. (1 Timothy 2:4)
      Jesus, please give each of us a passion for sharing the gospel. Let the light of the gospel shine forth in our dioceses.

For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, (1 Timothy 2:5)
      Father, help us cling to Jesus.

      Jesus, fill us anew with your faith, hope and love.

who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time, (1 Timothy 2:6)
      Jesus, thank you for paying my debt and for being the ransom for me.

for which I was appointed a preacher and an apostle–I am speaking the truth in Christ and not lying–a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth. (1 Timothy 2:7)
      Jesus, please bless all those you have called to be apostles and preachers — help them faithfully proclaim the faith and truth of the gospel.

      Holy Spirit, thank you for giving me the joy of knowing that I am covered by the blood of Jesus.

I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting; (1 Timothy 2:8 )
      Father, please help us lay aside wrath and anger and lift up holy hands to you in prayer. Move the men of our dioceses to intercession and prayer. Thank you.

      A word received: Keep your attention on me.

Tuesday: 36, 39; Proverbs 15:16-33; 1 Timothy 1:18-2:8; Matthew 12:33-42
Wednesday: 119:25-48; Proverbs 17:1-20; 1 Timothy 3:1-16; Matthew 12:43-50

Personal update

May 25, 2010

One of our readers asked for an update of my husband’s condition. George had surgery for colon cancer, and the lymph nodes were positive. Since surgery, he’s had a negative PET scan and a negative circulating tumor cell count.
George has completed the second of a planned 12 sessions of chemotherapy. He has adapted well. His main complaint is fatigue. He continues to work but goes to bed early.
We’ve marveled at the advances in therapy. While this once was the most common complaint, George has experienced no nausea at all. God is good.
Spiritually, we are at peace. –Jill

Therefore, dear brother, stand firm.
Your grace is sufficient, Lord, for Your strength is made perfect in our weakness.
Let nothing move you.
Your grace is sufficient, Lord, for Your strength is made perfect in our weakness.
Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
Your grace is sufficient, Lord, for Your strength is made perfect in our weakness.
1 Corinthians 15:58 and 2 Corinthians 12:9
