    Thank you. Very lovely…. Very.

    btw, looking for ‘trees’ in the Bible is really fascinating … I’m reading a book called Reforesting Faith on that subject. Once you start looking for “trees” in scripture, it’s very obvious what a beautiful relationship we have with them, and how God uses them to provide so much for us…. food, O2, shade, building materials, heat, etc… Earths Story involves the Tree of Life, the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, the Tree on Golgotha, and finally, the Tree of Life again.

    It’s a beautiful meditation, and certainly changes how I look at and admire the beautiful trees around my area. God made them and gave them to us.

    My caregiver Sandra has requested prayer for her discernment of an unexpected opportunity to become a more public advocate for the homeless, especially the challenges that homeless women face. Sandra participates in her church’s ministry of providing meals, clothing and occasional housing opportunities. She understands the serious responsibilities of being an effective and sensitive communicator of those needs and also the benefits and temptations that a more public presence might bring into her life. Her passion is great to be obedient to God and truly serve others. I am blessed to be one of her beneficiaries!! Please remember her in your prayers.

    In following on with the scriptural meditations, I am drawn to Hebrews 12–in particular the first two verses and the last two verses.

    1. Wherefore seeing we are also compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.
    2. Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

    28. Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
    29. For our God is a consuming fire.

    Linneia – All, would you pray for me? I have a rather painful kidney stone that is not passing. I may need an intervention. Thank you!

    Em – daughter is healing from fracture spine

    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. 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.

    Linnea – Would appreciate prayer…lots of joint and muscle aches as well as fatigue, that have gotten worse over the last few weeks. I have a full schedule this next week and really need strength to get through. Thank you!

    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…

    BrianD – I lost my sister, and now a friend of the family (my mom)Sherrie has died of cancer. Please pray

    Captain Kevin – Appreciate prayer. I’ve been in a Fibro/fatigue/depressed funk all week.
    Also, I’m teaching piano and voice at a local studio, and need many more students to make things work.

    Linnea – Would you pray for Greg? He and my husband play tennis. He was treated for an aggressive brain cancer and thought he was clear, but it has roared back. Please pray for healing and that he and his wife come to know the Lord. Thank you!

    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.

    Michael, Rick, Joel, Dan, capt. Kevin, Owen – wand to hear from God in their prayer life

    JTK- ongoing back issue.

    David H – Aunt Ramona has Adenocarcinoma primary lung cancer.

    Victor- chronic back pain

    Linnea- sister salvation

    Paige- 4 boys to be pleasing to God

    A lovely man died last night – a neighbor who suffers from PTSD went into his garage and turned on his car – he leaves a 2 1/2 year old child and a wife who is 4 months pregnant – hopefully the VFW here will help
    as would prayers from the pray-ers here
    thank you and God keep

  10. Em says:

    i asked for prayer for my daughter’s BIL and some here do pray, i know… when i asked for prayer, my nurse daughter said he had a 50-50 chance of lasting through the night… here is tonight’s update… no matter what God’s will is the prayer has helped
    ” had a pretty good day.he was on his back for about 4 hours and then turned to his stomach until 8 tomorrow morning. He’s on 35% oxygen and his peep is 8. His oxygen saturation is great in the 90s. He still getting investigational drug. And he doesn’t have any fevers. Overall a pretty decent day.”
    needless to say, thank you for praying for him (he’s a Lutheran 🙂 )

  11. Nancy Holmes says:

    Em–I am so sorry to hear of your neighbor’s tragic death. How frequently we know so little about the inner pain that others walk in. My heart goes out to his family at this devastating time and i will pray for them and carry them on my heart. Thank you for letting us know…

    How is your daughter’s BIL doing with his illness?

  12. Nancy Holmes says:

    That was a quick update on your daughter’s BIL!!

  13. Michael says:

    Em,

    Thank you for posting that opportunity to pray for your neighbor and your BIL…too may “lovely” people succumbing to such these days…

  14. Em says:

    Michael, the neighbor who killed himself cast a pall over the whole neighborhood – so much sorrow…. i wonder, if he had only known his value to all here…

    since i requested prayer for my daughter’s BIL, here is tonight’s update before i quit for the day…
    he “had a pretty good day according to the nurses. He’s slowly waking up and if he can wake up enough tonight, they’ll take the tube out, otherwise they’ll wait. Pretty important that he wake up enough to follow commands.” ….. his wife wants to thank all who have prayed… it has been a long vigil for her, to say the least
