For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith; or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching; he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness. (Romans 12:4-8 )
Holy Spirit, go through this diocese and move all of us to use the gifts and talents you have given us so that the kingdom of God is built up among us. Thank you.
Jesus, let the ministry of your Spirit be made visibly present at the Diocesan Convention. Move in our hearts and stir us up to a passion for you.
Father, let your hand of blessing rest upon the people of this diocese and upon the Diocesan Convention. Thank you.
A word received: Give me your fears.

Subject: Prayer Table Report ST. ANN’S OF AMSTERDAM (Monday, April 29, 10-1:45 a.m. in front of our church on Division Street. Light rain fell today at the start, then when it got a little heavier we moved the table into the entranceway of our church. Becky Hadley and Deacon Alan Hart presiding at His table today. We did not give out any wooden crosses or anoint anyone with Holy Oil today.)
ETHEL — She is a regular who always hugs and thanks us “… for being out here for us.” We prayed for healing for her injured left hand. (She fell recently.)
MAN (No name) — He waved and smiled at us from the other side of the street, but he did not come over.
DAVID — Asked for prayer for problems he has been having obtaining car insurance so he can continue to drive and keep his license.
REBECCA — She received prayer for steady pain she is having in her left hand. (She, too, fell this past week after losing her balance.)
