Sal's Message

Tonight was a night of sharing God's love through the bible, song, and open sharing. A song was played called " Jesus, there's something about that name" and yes there is. It is a powerful song that brings the love of Jesus closer to our hearts. There were two readings, Matthew 18-ver.10-14---and Luke 10-ver. 38-42. Tonight we shared on different bible verses that may have touched us and also what the meaning was for us on that verse. It was powerful. The sharing that went out to each of us was heart filling. We will do this again in another month. Until next Monday, God Bless, Sal

A Message from Anne

At last night's prayer meeting we worshiped the Lord with song and prayers. We heard the words from Psalm 96 to "Sing to the Lord a new song: Sing to the Lord, all the earth. Sing to the Lord, bless His name." We also heard the Lord's words from Ephesians vs. 14-21. "For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and earth derives its name, that He would grant you according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, and that you being rooted and grounded in love may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God."

We lifted our needs, worries, and loved ones to the Lord trusting in His will and His mercy. We prayed asking God to bless, aid and heal all who were not with us last night and their families.

Manny who is a medical doctor gave a teaching on illness which is inevitable in our lives. We can use our illness for God's glory. Manny referred to paraticular saints and shared their attitude toward sickness. Illness can change us for the better when we are able to surrender to God. He also shared ways to help ourselves and the doctor when we are sick. His wife Evelyn, shared the story of her mother's healing from cancer after being told by her doctor that she had only 6 months to live. Her doctor had no explanation except maybe he made a misdiagnosis. Evelyn's mother had prayed unceasingly. Praise God!

Next Monday we will share how God has and is speaking to us through scripture.

Sal's Messasge

What a great evening we had filled with sharing and song. Praising the
Lord was just overwhelming. We made the time to come to this prayer
meeting and the reward that the Lord gave us was so great. The readings
were: Luke ch. 15-ver. 1--7---Luke ch.2--ver. 8---14----Matthew ch. 10
ver 34 thru ch. 11.----and Joel Ch. 2. The teaching was on Time. We
ask Jesus to help us to understand that nothing of this world is worth
our time if it does not include Him. We offer up praise and thanksgiving
for the gift of time. Next week Manny will be doing the teaching and
Anne will lead the prayer group. Please come and support them. We also
offer a special mention for Gloria Hanson. Keep her in your prayers.
Until next week, may the Lord keep each of you safe in His care. God
Bless Sal

A Message from Anne

I've been thinking lately how important it is to read scripture and that lately I have not been as faithful as I should be even though I know that God has spoken to me so many times through scripture in both powerful and quiet subtle ways. I thought maybe it would help all of us if one prayer meeting a month we shared on scripture verses that really spoke to us. We could tell what God has shown us from the past and the present. It may be about help God has given us in a tough time or it may be an enlightening or sudden understanding about the greatness of God or whatever!

I mentioned this idea at the last prayer meeting and got a very positive response. I suggested doing this the first Monday of each month. However, I'll be on vacation that week so perhaps we could begin at the July 28th meeting.

Also, if someone would like to write about a meaningful scipture and post it on our blog that would be great. If someone doesn't want to post something themselves they could e-mail it to me and I would be happy to post it. God does great things and many times He uses scripture. Let's open our bibles and help the Holy Spirit give us treasures and words of wisdom.

God bless you all! Anne
