Almighty and everliving God, we humbly pray that, as your only-begotten Son was this day presented in the temple, so we may be presented to you with pure and clean hearts by Jesus Christ our Lord; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
Praise God – we saw many marvelous things last week. Many received Christ though until baptism the Indian people do not consider the matter settled. They must turn from their idols take baptism and tale a Christian name. There was ministry to the sick, the poor, and even public deliverance ministry.
7 Sunday services wit testimonies at the end of every one – the zeal was amazing. Critics would look at the way they worship and make accusations. These folk were not passive EVER. The services were in 5 different languages. Church started at 5:30 am and ended at 9:30 pm. We took one break missing one service, to get a meal and a short nap.
There is however a serious prayer request. My ministry partner got ill manifesting mental instability. He is a stroke survivor so we returned early. He is now in hospital being tested for stroke. He is my friend of 25 years and was my co-pastor starting our church. Because of the coronavirus he’s in quarantine protocols – he has no symptoms of infection but all international returnees with illness go into these protocols. He is very confused and unstable. He is my friend. Pray for him. I won’t name him here I hope you understand.
Thank you all
BD…praying now for your friend…and you.

You, too, Michael

Praise God for answered prayer Em, and thanks for praying friends. My friend is awaiting diagnosis. He appears to be suffering dementia possibly facilitated by his earlier stroke.

Babylon’s Dread – My ministry partner got ill manifesting mental instability. He is a stroke survivor so we returned early. He is now in hospital being tested for stroke.

Michael – I would appreciate prayer as well…life is pretty overwhelming right now.
Em- my nurse daughter took a nasty fall, cracked a vertebrae and there is no one else on staff at the hospital that can do her job, so she’s been working through it, sometimes wearing a brace… we need prayer that with so little respite her vertebrae will heal correctly…

Xenia-+Pray for the churches of Sri Lanka
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.
cash – depression , PTSD
David H – I could use a prayer. I was diagnosed with Bell’s Palsy . Right side of my face is paralyzed. Prednisone and an antiviral.
Michael – heart aneurysm and a bad valve, bad back and neck issues.
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
Linnea – Jon and Sarah. Please pray that they would know God’s love and would follow Him out of horrible lifestyles to freedom.
