prayer for the week

O God, you declare your almighty power chiefly in showing mercy and pity: Grant us the fullness of your grace, that we, running to obtain your promises, may become partakers of your heavenly treasure; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

from Book of Common Prayer

you would be just the person to start a men's bible study.

Nancy, Thanks for the compliment. Next week I start leading a homegroup- guitar singing hymns and songs together, and facilitating discussion over a Bible passage or theme. We had a good time last year, and I look forward to our times together again.

But yes, at my age you get your opportunities; I have more besides. There are more opportunities and possibilities out there than there are workers it seems. I need to pray more to be led or do well in what I do, and not be scattered too much, too thin, which I can tend to do, I think.

oh, you already are involved in a study, with music and singing. i did not know that about you. that sounds like very encouraging fellowship.

Nancy, I have been much encouraged in my faith through this group and through some people of faith in it.

...and really that has included everyone.
