Prayer & Praise
Almighty God, you gave your only Son to be for us both a sacrifice for sin and an example of godly living: Give us grace thankfully to receive his inestimable benefits, and daily to follow the blessed steps of his most holy life; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Into your hands, O merciful Savior, we commend your servant Rachel. Acknowledge, we humbly beseech you, a sheep of your own fold, a lamb of your own flock, a sinner of your own redeeming. Receive her into the arms of your mercy, into the blessed rest of everlasting peace, and into the glorious company of the saints in light. Amen.
May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
please remember in prayer…..

Paige – Asking for prayer for a family issue… God knows…. and the silencing of a lying gossip who is spreading slander about me to family members and others. It’s an on going issue that is quite perplexing, and apparently demonic. Twisted, delusional and strange.
I spoke to a trusted friend about the issue and was told “Satan has given XYZ power to turn people against you” and “XYZ has been used by Satan to destroy your former marriage and harm the church and now to divide your family”.
This XYZ happens to also be cyber stalking me here on the Phoenix preacher.
May God enlighten all souls to see and know Truth and walk in it by His Spirit.
Duane -Of your charity, pray for the repose of the soul of Christina Tebbe, mother of my friend, Matt Tebbe, a priest in ACNA. She died unexpectedly this last week at the age of 67. Her family is grieving…

Captain Kevin-Friends, please pray for our dear brother in the Lord, Peter-John Courson. He is in the hospital with stage 3 or 4 cancer. Last post I saw, he said he may not have much longer.
This is heartbreaking. He is married with 4 young daughters. His dad has already lost a wife and a daughter, and now this. Dear Lord, please bring merciful healing.
Old Man in the Sea Kevin-Friends, please pray for energy and clarity. I have my job eval this coming week, along with preparations for a field trip and tons of paperwork, all with deadlines of course. I’m not getting any younger.
Captain Kevin – need the Lord to help me with a long-term dose of some plain good ol’ want to, because right now, I don’t want to do much of anything. I don’t want to work, socialize, talk, laugh, cry, or be the man that some people are counting on me to be. Maybe I’ll get it back, but for right now, I’m done caring, dreaming, trying or wanting. I feel guilty for feeling this way as I’m so much better off than millions of other people. I have a home, a job, a wonderful family, and so much more than I deserve. I have the hope of eternity. I’m not suicidal, I’d just like to check out for a while. If we’re friends on FB, can we please just keep this here. Thanks.
Michael – same as above….
AA – Prayer for so many affected by the fires. May they receive comfort & aid.
Captain Kevin – I’ve been put on an FMLA indefinite leave of absence from my work. Hoping it will only be for a few weeks. My dr put me on a diet, said I need to exercise 15-20 mins per day no matter how I feel, and we’re going to try a new med. I have about 6 days of PTO left. After that, I lose pay for every day I miss.
Duane – A dear friend, Fr. Tom Widner, SJ, has been taken off life support . Pray that God’s will be done…

Please pray also for God’s comfort for Danielle’s Mom, Karen. Thank you

Captain Kevin – Please pray for my oldest daughter. She is separated from her husband. This is probably the 3rd time in the 3 years they’ve been married. I’m not sure who is more at fault or if there is any abuse, so I just pray for God’s will. They are believers, I think.
JD – Marshal whose mother told him that she doesn’t love him
John 20:29- my cousin in barring a miracle he’s entering the final stages of his cancer… prayers have been appreciated and heard. .. They’ve brought him some good months.

They’ve been a close couple and now, even tho she is a Believer, she will face growing old without her life partner…
