Prayer, praise and worship is what we are all about. Yes, and tonight again we could feel the presence of Our Lord, through the beautiful music of Mary Ann and the words received and Jesus' love shared tonight. Geri shared a story on "God's Love" which touched us, we also had readings from: Psalms Ch. 4---Psalms85--- Hosea Ch. 6-ver. 1-3 and John Ch 1- ver. 1-5. The teaching was on How God Speaks To Us In Our Prayers. We must ask for God's guidance and God will answer. We also must learn how to listen for Him. We must set aside some quiet time for prayer and learn to listen. We ended in laughter and joyful prayer and looking forward to Christmas Day. May you all have a Blessed Christmas. Until next week at our home, at 7:30pm. or back at the Chapel of Jan. 4, 2010. God Bless

As we gathered together tonight, after being away for two weeks, we realized how much we missed our prayer family and the time we have to praise The Lord together. We began with prayer and a word from Matthew Ch. 4- Ver 10 was { "The Lord, your God, shall you worship and him alone shall you serve." We also had readings from: Psalms 103--Psalms 8--John 15-ver. 1-10---and---Mark ch. 11-ver.22. The teaching was on how to witness Christ by your words and actions. We must try to be as Jesus told his followers, " You are the Light of the world," So until next Monday at 7:30 p.m. have a blessed week and let the light of Jesus shine through you. God Bless, Sal

Pray, praise and worship is what we are all about. Yes, allowing the Lord to touch us each week helps make us stronger. If we really listen to what He is trying to tell us through His messages and songs we can learn a lot. A word was given tonight: { My Children when you are in need of Me look at My cross.} Also{ I AM THE ANSWER}. The readings tonight were: Pslams 91--Pslams 46--and Isaiah 60. We shared on many different and powerful bible verses and found healing in all of them. The sharing also was important and needed. We ended in joyful prayer. NEXT WEEK IS THE FEAST OF ALL SOULS, THERE WILL NOT BE A PRAYER MEETING ON NOV. 2, DUE TO THE MASS AT 7:30 P.M IN THE CHURCH. WE WILL MEET THE FOLLOWING MONDAY NOV.9, AT 7:30 P.M.

Tonight we learned to be strong in our faith and walk with our Lord. Life has many difficult turns in it and with God at our side we can get through any storm. Bill did the teaching tonight with strength and power in his voice. His teaching was called, " The Tree of Shaken Faith." Yes, many times our faith is shaken up but watching many of are sisters and brothers in Christ go through difficult times we can learn many things. Thank you Bill for a great teaching. The readings tonight were: --Psalms 86---Psalms 13--and--Isaiah 43. We sang and shared after the teaching and prayed for healings for many of our sisters and brothers. Next week we will meet at 7:30 p.m. and I ask if you can bring your bibles so we can share on something that may have touched you. Until then, God Bless, Sal

Tonight was quiet. We were small in numbers so we did what the Lord told us to do. Two or more in My Name, and so there was. We prayed in silence and offered up our prayers for our loved ones and also all our Prayer Family. We had a sharing about Sal and Janice's weekend and left with the Lord at our side. Our Weekend was call:" All Things are possible with God" and yes they are. Just remember that when things are not going your way. Until next week, Bill will be doing the teaching if Bonnie is well.

The joy of The Lord was with us tonight. Yes, His presence was felt in the chapel. We had many blessing, first Mary Ann and her gift of music filled the chapel. Then we had Rich #2 lead us in a teaching. We received different words. { My Children behold the wonder of tonight, because tonight you will be fed spiritually}---( Tell Me child what is heavy on your heart and bring it to the foot of My cross)---{ I have called you by name and you are Mine}. The readings were: Psalms 103-ver.1-8---Psalms 65---and Psalms 63. The teaching tonight was given by Rich #2- on Faith when feeling Forsaken. He described good and bad days(normal) even as Christians. He went on to share about the little engine that could, and how with faith we must be like that engine to overcome bad days. You can reflect on Psalm 22 verse 1-ver.8-ver.19-ver.27 to the end. Also John 12-ver.36 and John 14. ver.1. We left tonight with an understanding of how to get through difficult times and trust in the Lord, and ask for prayerss from our prayer family and friends. I would like to thank Rich also for helping me tonight because I was not feeling well. Until next week, try to read these Bible ver. it may help you. God Bless each of You. Sal

Response from Bill on Aug 10th Prayer Meeting

Sal -I thought your son did a wonderful job. He was very 'forceful' very animated very focused and hit his 'message' hard. I know that he had us, all, thinking about what he was trying to drive home.
BUT--it was a very difficult 'message' for us to come to grips with so easily.
Try to focus on God--not focus on all of the trials and tribulations that face us on a daily basis--BUT--- that is exactly what we have to try to do. He is right.
Very tough to do-- but he is right.
You and Jan are surely very proud of him and with good reason..
It seems he would make such a wonderful Teacher.
We have to continue our prayers for him. He is the kind of person we need teaching our kids.


Sal's Message Aug. 10th

This evening was special for Janice and me. We had our son Steven in from texas and he came to the prayer meeting and did the teaching tonight.

The teaching by Steven was powerful and he gave us a lot to think about tonight and this week. He shared on God's promise to us, and reminds us of many things we should be doing to keep us close to Our Lord, like getting into His word. He told us what BIBLE stood for, ( Basic Instruction Before Leaving Earth). Everyone enjoyed his teaching. Thank you son for a great job tonight. Next week we will meet at 7:30 p.m. in the Chapel.

Tonight was again a night of prayer, praise, and glorifying The Lord, and so we did. We missed Mary Ann's music but we sang, and guess what we were not that bad. A word was given, { My Children allow some quiet time this week, and I will guide you.} The readings were: Psalms 95----Romans ch.1 ver. 16-17----and---1 John 3-ver.1-3. The teaching was on making a choice to walk with Our Lord or walk without Him. The choice is ours to make. Coming here each week shows that we want to walk with our Lord.

Tonight was a night of sharing from the Bible or open sharing. We started with prayer song and praise which is what we do each week. But what I saw tonight was the love of Jesus shining through our Sisters and Brothers eyes - the light of the Lord shine right through. We had a word { My Children when the road is difficult fear not, I will be by your side.}--Many readings. John Ch. 3-ver.31---2 Thessalonians ch.3---Proverbs Ch.2-ver. 1-8---Psalms 1. The sharing from so many touched our hearts, and we left knowing that our Lord was right there beside us. Thank You Lord for a beautiful evening of sharing and prayer.

As we gathered together on Monday evening, it was great to see Bill and Evelyn back with us. We do miss so many of our prayer family members that cannot make it, but we continue to pray by name for each of them. A word was given { My Children listen carefully to what I will share with you tonight and take that with you. }--There was many readings tonight, John ch.4,---Galatians ch. 3- ver. 26.----Matthew ch. 6-ver.25---Luke ch. 6-ver.20-23---and John ch.5-ver. 1-13.

We gathered in Father Anderson Library tonight, and wherever we are the Lord is with us. A word was given ( I believe My words will touch you tonight), and for each of us tonight they did. We sang and felt Our Lord surround us. There was a reading from Psalm 23--and--Psalm 71. The teaching was on our devotion to the Lord. Faith is so important to have and tonight Our Lord told each of us that faith is not the belief that God will do what you want. Faith is the belief that God will do what is right. So He asks each of us to do something that reveals our faith. God will respond. He has never rejected a genuine gesture of Faith. NEVER. We ended in prayer and will meet next Monday in the Chapel at 7:30 p.m. Have a great week, and keep the Faith. Sal

We must pay attention to the things that are critical to our happiness, like family, children, health, friends, and our favorite passions, like Jesus Christ.

We gathered in prayer and praise tonight in the chapel. As we prayed and sang songs, and listened to Mary Ann's beautiful music, we felt the Lord touch each of us. A word was given, { My Children at times you may feel weak, but fear not I will be you strength.} Bill confirmed this word. His son was speaking to him earlier and told him the same thing. That to me is a confirmation of the word. We had a reading from 1 John ch. 1- ver. 5 ---10 and Psalm 34. The teaching tonight was given by Lindy, and what a beautiful and powerful teaching she gave. It was called, "Believe God In Troubled Times". She shared how God protects us in troubled times. We need faith in what God tell us. We must read the bible more. She shared that the bible is a gift and you should open it and start reading it. We ended in prayer. Next Monday in the Chapel we will share on different bible verses and how they may have touched us. Thank you Lindy for tonight. You did a great job on your teaching.

It was great to be back in the Chapel and we also were blessed with Mary Ann's music tonight. The Chapel was filled with music, praise and songs. A word was given, { My Children be aware of My Presence and I will fill you with My Love.}-There were readings from 1John2-ver. 5-10----Mark 14-ver. 28-31. Phyllis read a poem called "God's Hands" I will write it at the bottom. The teaching was on Worry or Trust. When we have a problem we should bring it to Christ just like Mary did at the wedding, from John2-ver.3--"When all the wine was gone, Jesus' Mother said to Him, "They have no more wine". She took the problem to Christ, and that is what we also must do, bring our problems to Christ, and trust in Him. Next week there will not be a prayer meeting because of Easter Monday but we will return to the Chapel on April 20 and we are blessed. Lindy, will be doing the teaching. I hope you all can make it. Until then have a Blessed and Happy Easter. Love in Christ, Sal and Janice.

God's hands are all over the world, And no matter what people say God's hands are visible You see them every day. God's hands are creamy white, His hands are a golden tan, His hands are darkest ebony And rough from sea and sand. His hands can be young or old. His hands reach out in climates warm or in the coldest ice and snow. You've seen his hands so many times For God uses hands of those he loves For things he needs hands to do! If you've reached out to do His will.....Your hands are his hands too!

Tonight we came looking forward to hearing a tape from a Charismatic speaker, is Maria Vadia. Before we spoke we received a word, { My Child take hold of My hand and fear nothing for I am with you.}--Her talk was titled, " So that they may all be one." We must always praise the Lord in all things. We must walk by faith with The Lord and believe. Her love for The Lord is so strong and her praise and worship is so powerful. Listening to her we all can learn a lot. We all shared on how her talk touched us and we ended in quiet prayer. We had fellowship and shared some more. Next Monday we will be at the church, at 7:30 p.m. We will not meet on Easter Monday but will return to the Chapel after that to praise and worship our blessed Lord.

Tonight we found a special peace within each of us and the Lord. We sang and praised Our Lord, even had a little laugh during one of our off sounding songs. We knew the Lord was with us. Wwe rec'd a word from Him it said: "Take this time that I have given you and use it in My Name."------ The readings were; Psalms 28---and Ephesians. Ch. 1 ver. 1-9--The teaching was on how important it is to fellowship with your Sisters and Brothers in Christ and what a perfect place to do it - at the Chapel or someone's home. If we did not have this prayer group maybe our hearts would grow colder and we would not be in the right place with the Lord. We must keep the fire burning in our hearts and when we do the love of Jesus will warm us today and always. We ended in prayer and enjoyed a short time of fellowship. Tonight we will be at Anne's house at 7:30 p.m. for our 5th annual meeting. Next week we will be at Sal and Janice's house for the last time and will return on March 30 to the Church.

"My Child take any doubt you have and leave it at the foot of My Cross and go forward on my Path."

Peace is flowing like a river, and that is how it felt tonight. The love of Jesus and His gentleness was present as we sang, prayed, and praised our most loving God. Anne told how she felt the Lord saying to her, "It's ok, I am with you." after receiving Holy Communion at the funeral of her very dear friend a few days ago. She shared that after thinking about these words she realized they are true in any difficult situation we find ourselves. We had a reading from Psalms ch. 8---&---Psalms ch.34- ver. 1-11. There was sharing by Anna, as we learn that it is okay, our Lord will be there, we can get through anything as long as we have faith and trust. It okay to feel whatever you are feeling at the moment, because God is with us. We ended in prayer, and enjoyed some fellowship over some cake and coffee. We also found out that everything shared tonight was a confirmation. Next Monday will be at Sal and Janice house. We will share with our bibles and also share how the Lord has touched us this week. Until then God Bless and keep each of you in His Hands. Sal

Sal's Message

Tonight we gathered at Sal and Janice's house. As we began to pray we quietly felt the presence of Jesus come into the room. A word was given{ Place no doubt in your mind for I will never fail you.}---also---- {Take My hand and walk with Me, you are my beloved Child}.--We had a reading from Psalms Ch. 8---Psalms Ch. 34-ver.-1-11 and Ephesians Ch. 4-ver. 14-20. The teaching was on "The God who Sends the Music," It was about the Holy Spirit in our life, and that when you are filled with the Holy Spirit you will hear the Music. There was good sharing after the teaching and when we finished we fellowshiped over coffee and cake and enjoyed each others company. Until next Monday at Sal and Janice's house have a blessed week. God Bless, Sal

Sal's Message

Tonight we allowed ourselves to be mellow in the Lord, to feel His love, to share His words, and sing His songs. We quietly sang and began to hear our Lord speak to our hearts. A word was given, { Be prepared for the journey I am about to take you on.} The readings tonight were: Psalms 21--Isaiah ch.41 - ver. 28- 31---Psalms 145---and Psalms. 9. Tonight we shared different bible verses that may have touched us this past week, and there was a lot of sharing in this area. We ended in quiet prayer and joyfully left the chapel. Until next week, may the joy of the Lord be with each of you. God Bless Sal

When we make the time to attend our prayer meeting we always come out feeling filled with the Holy Spirit. With the cold weather and staying warm in our home we sometimes get lazy, but tonight I am happy I attended. The fellowship and love in the Chapel warmed our hearts. The songs filled the chapel and the readings and teaching did warm us up. We may have had our coats on but Jesus filled us with His love. The readings were: 1 Corinthian ch. 1- ver. 4-9---Psalms 34 ver. 1-11---Psalms 28--, the teaching was given by Anne tonight. Anne's love for the Lord shone right through her. It was her anniversary of walking with the lord for 24 years. Anne found His love that day when she was born again. She brought in a picture of Smiling Jesus. You can see Him saying "Come Follow Me", and she has. The joy of the Lord is still with her. Two words were given tonight { Remain silent My children while I anoint each of you.} also { I turn to each of you My children and say "Come Follow Me". I will lead you on the right Path}. What a beautiful evening. Thank You Lord. Next week please bring your bibles and special verses and we will share how the Lord is working in our lives. God Bless, Sal

Sal's Message

We Love you dear Lord, and we praise and worship you always. Tonight we sang, praised and opened our hearts to the Lord, and listened to His message. It came in different ways for each of us. What I heard first was a word which was given. It said,{ Take the love I have for each of you, and pass it on to others.} There was a reading from Psalm 96--and Proverb Ch. 3. ver. 13-35. The teaching was on a story about witnessing and receiving Christ in your life. You know we wait for the Lord to answer our prayers, and we wait and wait, but He will not fail us, it will be answered in His time, not ours. We must have faith and believe that our faith will hold us strong, until we are healed or our request is answered. Until next monday keep Christ in your life and have a safe and warm week. God BLess, Sal

Bill's Reflections

See you cant lose going to the Prayer Group-- some gas --some time-- maybe-the fifty dollar entrance fee-just kidding-- but you cant really LOSE. Even if you don't believe in God you get something from the Prayer Group.

Well, I had a conversation with my bum legs and said' Look guys I haven't been there in months -MONTHS !!!!.-- I have to go. I know you guys don't want to go and I know these pills I am taking make me 'woozy' and out of sorts but I am asking you -please- lets give it a 'GO'. PLEASE'They thought about it and after much deliberation they said 'All right. We make no promises and remember to bring in the cushion that takes pressure off the nerves in your foot and we will go." "Deal" I said.

I rushed into the meeting-late-but I got there- took my seat. Looked around the room and there they all were. Some of the nicest folks on the planet. Give you the shoes off their foots. Hearts two sizes too big. Well, they treated me like a movie star back from a vacation or like a returning hero. There was Sal and dear wife Jan. I had missed their nagging of each other and Sal always being worried that he would say something wrong and she would start heckling him when he gave a 'teaching'. There was Anne-steadfast and true putting her heart and soul in front of God-there was Phyllis--kind hearted? gentle soul? Right up at the head of the class-throw adversity at her and she manages to stuggle through each and every time with never a complaint. There was Debbie- well all the stuff I said about the other folks applies to her except for the heckling. She and Bruce raising their beautiful family with all of the struggles that go along with doing that and against many obstacles --still smiling--Eleanore-day by day week by week struggling through life sharing the struggles of her boys and those close to her and yet being grateful during all of that-- Sophie-hadn't seen her in such a long time-but she was bringing her soul and her struggles to the group and asking that we join with her to find some answers to life's struggles-


There was Lindy-quitely enduring-most always asking for help for others-she comes last to the table. And lastly --but not I-- am sure -someone is sitting next to her but forgive me please I just don't remember but I assure the same mold I am sure.
I have said often-I would trust my heart and soul to these folks.

Some of our group are off fighting through their struggles on their own 'taking a break' as they say. It has become a bit much to come to the group. It gets overwhelming at times. What IS the meaning of life'? Why has this befallen me? I have dome all that has been asked and look at this terrible situation that has overcome me my family? I don't get it. I need to step back. Hey who among us could blame you?. You pray your heart and soul out and sometimes it gets worse NOT better.
Well, I know I over simplify things by saying 'It is a job. A job we must do to to make way for the betterment of our souls'

I know easy to say but if I didn't firmly believe that I would--I would-? Well, I wouldn't be sitting here and I wouldn't be going to any Prayer Groups. Anyway I felt that I had to pray for a young girl at the Rehab Center where I go for body improvements. She was having terrible stomach pains --back pains-- and she had 'Colitis' a few years ago. She needed to see Doctors. I listened to her story and told her I believed firmly that she did NOT have Cancer. All of the symptoms seemed to say that was not her problems but she did a wise thing to seek a Doctors help. That would be a major problem for her because she was on Medicaid and it would be tough to find a good Doctor who would take her Insurance but she needed help. We all agreed that ANY Doctor was better than none and she did have to find out what was causing her all of this discomfort and Pain. I told she had to find a Gastrointesologist-? Told her all of these tests were absolutely painless and she would be OK. There was something wrong but I did not think it was major. I do not have a Degree in the Medical Establishment but I have a large degree of undergoing a test here or there. She had to try to find a Doctor to take her Case.
We prayed for many many more people and Causes and then Sal gave a wonderful inspiring talk and said something like what added up to" Tell your big 'struggles' how big your God is." That wasn't his exact words but I changed them to fit my 'theme'

At the end I had to chance to say some personal hellos' and I always feel like a few million dollars as to how this wonderful group treats me. Anna gave me a humongus-HUMONGUS --hug at the end. I had sent her an E-mail telling her how much of an inspiration her Husband Rich and she were to me when my legs were at their worst. No matter how much they hurt I thought of Rich and how his 'Struggles' made mine look like strawberry shortcake. It seemed to me that he hardly ever complained that much. I am sure he must have and I am sure Anna had to endure during all of that but while I visited the few times I did-he seemed to handle it all so very well. He lost both legs. How could I make a fuss over pains in both of mine?. She thanked me so very much for that e-mail -I thanked her so much for the inspiration. We spent about five minutes thanking each other. She did say something of great importance and I have heard this before-- 'She said 'BY you doing that you help keep Rich alive".!!
We tend not to talk about someone who has passed on'. This is a mistake. Their loved ones want to keep the memory 'Alive'. They do not want the memory to be forgotten like the person never lived. I am sure that is hard for all of us but we should try to honor the memory of the person and talk about them with the ones left behind. I know tough task-Tough.

Oh yes I saw that girl Michelle today. I told her we had prayed and asked her how she was doing. Did she find a Doctor.? She said a most amazing thing happened. She gone to the Hospital to visit her Mom. Her Mom worked there. By chance they both bumped into one of the Gastro. Doctors who worked there and who her Mom knew well. They told her her story. The Doctor said she would do the exams for free.

I forgot to bring in the cushion. My legs were not happy about that , at all, but did not curse or yell at me

Sal's Message

The Chapel was filled with the joy of the Lord tonight. The Praise and Worship, and songs we sang brought us together in a very special way. Jesus was present in the Chapel and in each of us tonight. "Praise The Lord," the readings were: Psalm 121-- Matthew Ch. 18, ver. 10-13--and Jeremiah Ch. 30. A word was given [ I Have taken you on a journey. Be prepared, look back on the last few weeks, see where I have taken you.] The teaching was a story of "That's God," It talks about the good things we do for others and that when things happen around us it is not a coincidence. There is no such things as coincidence. It's God. That's right. {That's God working though you or for us.} We ended with the joy of the Lord with us, and we were reminded "Don't tell GOD how Big your storm is, Tell the storm how Big your GOD is!" Until next Monday at 7:30 p.m may the Lord bless and keep each of you safe this week. Love in Christ, Sal
