There is a book who runs may read,

Which heavenly truth imparts;

And all the lore its scholars need,

Pure eyes and Christian hearts.

  The works of God, above, below,

Within us and around,

Are pages in that book, to show

How God Himself is found.

 The glorious sky, embracing all,

Is like the Maker’s love,

Wherewith encompassed, great and small

In peace and order move.

 The moon above, the Church below,

A wondrous race they run;

But all their radiance, all their glow,

Each borrows from its sun.

 The raging fire, the roaring wind,

Thy boundless power display;

But in the gentler breeze we find

Thy Spirit’s viewless way.

  Two worlds are ours; ’tis only sin

Forbids us to descry

The mystic heaven and earth within,

Plain as the sea and sky.

 Thou, who has given me eyes to see

And love this sight so fair,

Give me a heart to find out Thee,

And read Thee everywhere.

John Keble

  1. remember in prayer

    Victor- chronic back pain

    Michael – needs gull bladder surgery, gull bladder stones and kidney stones.

    Captain Kevin – Hi Friends, I’m really struggling with pain, fatigue, and vertigo right now. I have to be back to work officially in 12 days, and have so much to do to get ready for the new school year, but it’s difficult to focus on those tasks. Maybe God could send me a secretary/massage therapist/physical therapist/chiropractor.

    Captain Kevin -I seem to be in a season of great difficulty with my fibromyalgia and arthritis. In addition to the normal achiness, I’m having frequent moments of excruciating pain, especially in my neck and left shoulder. I recently had some injections, which normally work really well, but this time not so much.
    Also, when pain kicks in like this, it triggers depression

    Michael – Calvary Chapel pastor Mike Neglia of Cork, Ireland was struck by a car while running this morning in Orange County. Keep him in your prayers and his family as well…

    JoelG – If you could pray for the guys at The Home in downtown Portland. That they know they are loved by our Lord beyond comprehension.

    JoelG- can no longer do outreach in a certain area because it caused him to infect his home with bedbugs….pray he finds a solution that does not harm his family.

    Michael – Please pray for a young man I just took to the ER from the skatepark,
    20 years old, homeless, drunk, and injured.
    He’s a mess, but he matters.

    JTK – banned from local collage , review is pending

    Scooter Jones- son is suicidal , not doing well

    Lurkie Loo -I have a dear friend who was just diagnosed on Valentine’s day with inoperable Stage 4 glioblastoma (brain cancer). She is 44.

    Captain Kevin – a childhood friend who unfriended me on FB for my conservative views. This was after referring to me and some of my friends as scum of the earth along with other names I wouldn’t repeat here. I appealed on the basis of an almost lifelong friendship and that I not only respected him for holding well-reasoned views but that we had much more in common than not. He would have none of it. I grieve over a lost friendship as well as my part in the destruction.

    surfer51 (david) “stage four” prostate cancer.

    John 20:29 – cousin Jerry has prostate cancer

    Erunner- mom has blocked arteries

    Michael- upcoming surgery, tumor on his thyroid and spot on his lung, very ill,

    Lennea- sister salvation and cancer My sister has asked me to not contact her anymore as I brought her information about a pending lawsuit against her (from the school district she teaches in). I pray that she would draw near to the Lord and confess her own sins.

    filbertz – nephew’s 16-year-old son who evidently accidentally shot himself new year’s eve, still in pain over drew’s death.

    JD – young step nephew shot himself in the head the day after Christmas 2016.

  2. my cousin who is succumbing to prostate cancer was able to travel to another state to attend his oldest grandson’s wedding… thanks so much to the pray-ers here

    once again Michael has given us a beautiful praise and prayer to read – joining in the prayers for dusty’s list of good folk (and bad 🙂 ) needing prayer… thank you for that also

  3. joining you in praise John 20:29 for your cousin’s strength to travel.

    and for this place to pray.

  4. Prayers appreciated for this evenings backpack event.
    My family is in town this year and so far already everyone wants to be in charge.
    I don’t feel supported and I don’t have the emotional reserves to deal with it.
    This event is always stressful for me and it hasn’t even started and I’m already in tears.

  5. praying as i read, London… Lord, give this woman the strength to do what her heart has led her into again and turn those around her to work in cooperation and love also

  6. Thank Em,
    It was a rough start, and I’m still upset, but we managed to get through with a record number of volunteers and backpacks.

    It astounds me every year that people come back, work hard in a hot room and return again the next year.

    Was grateful for all the hard work my family has done to help.

  7. London,
    <3

  8. there is so much to pray for now that it is almost hard to focus…
    but, since this is not a good time to have overwhelming health problems… my prayers are with those here who are dealing with such… dusty has most in her list here… Lord Jesus, help us in our weaknesses, whatever they may be, today… be our reality and strength… help us to trust grace and grow in Faith in Your promises……

  9. O Father of mercies and God of all comfort, our only help in time of need: We humbly beseech thee to behold, visit and relieve thy servant Michael for whom our prayers are desired. Look upon him with the eyes of thy mercy; comfort him with a sense of thy goodness; preserve him from the temptations of the enemy; and give him patience under his affliction. In thy good time, restore him to health, and enable him to lead the residue of his life in thy fear, and to thy glory; and grant that finally he may dwell with thee in life everlasting; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

  10. joining you John 20:29 in prayers for the ill on the list….and those not on the list…..

    Father grant healing to them. pour Your Spirit out over them and strengthen them.Be the great Physician that they need in their time of discomfort, pain, and turmoil. Thank You for being with them in their greatest time of need and hearing our prayers. Remember Your mercy and grant healing.

  11. joining Duane in his prayer for Michael, feel better big brother.

  12. Glad everything turned out well after all at the backpack packing program.

  13. Michelle Tumes \ Healing Waters

    I’ve built a bridge
    All of my strength cannot cross over
    I stand at the edge
    The end of a road that I have followed
    Sinking from the weight of my own world
    Wanting the waves of Your ways to wash my feet

    Healing waters
    Healing waters
    Solace flows
    Through the river of forgiveness to my soul
    Oh, I need You
    Healing waters

    Pour over me
    Water to clean all my intentions
    Baptizing streams
    I swim in the freedom of redemption
    Floating on the sea of purity
    Knowing I can dive in the love that rescues me

    Memories are raging high
    Floods so deep they touch the sky
    All the things I’ve done to You
    All the parts of life untrue
    Healing comes from outstretched hands
    Saving me from what I am
    Carry me
    Carry me

    Healing waters
    Healing waters
    Solace flows
    Through the river of forgiveness to my soul
    Oh, I need You
    Healing waters

  14. praying still for the surgery schedule to have Michael’s name on it soon … Lord, You know…
