prayer for the week

First Sunday in Lent

Almighty God, whose blessed Son was led by the Spirit to be tempted by Satan; Come quickly to help us who are assaulted by many temptations; and, as you know the weaknesses of each of us, let each one find you mighty to save; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

from Book of Common Prayer

I want to thank you for your prayers. I am still waiting on tests from last week. I should know the results of my EEG the first of the week. I do feel the strength of the the prayers. God is so good to those who trust Him. Thank you for brother. It means so much when you know others are praying for you. I can feel the power and strength that I need. I will update you when I find out more. God bless you brother as you minister and meet the needs of those who need Jesus Christ. Thank you for the difference you make through the words on this blog and in your life.
In Him,
Kinney Mabry

I consider it an honor and privilege to pray for you, brother. And to join others in our chorus of prayers as incense to God.

Am praying.

At Mass on Sunday our priest said he has a friend, also a priest, who said to him that he loves temptations, because it better shows him his true self, his failings and the things he must fight against.

My priest (Father Harry) went on to tell us that last year when he was undergoing chemotherapy, the doctor told him that it would adversley affect his libido. Father H. just said "Great, Great!"

I have just read Kenny's comment to you. Do you think he would be offended if I lit a candle for him on Sunday? I find praying so difficult, so often I opt out and hope my candles say what is in my heart.

Good way to look at our difficulties and struggles in faith. In our weakness we can come to know the Lord's strength, since we're more prone then, to trust him.

Also, yes. I'm sure Kinney would appreciate that!
