Social Saturdays (2/05/11)

It's Saturday! That means we're chatting with the living and praying for the dead. 

Prayer Requests: 

  • For Jim F., whose diabetes is swinging to extremes requiring emergency attention, that his doctors are able to restore him to health. Also for his wife K that the Holy Spirit guide and direct her in peace and contentment.
  • In thanksgiving that Father Deacon Stan is stable and home and for his continued restoration of health.
  • For all those traveling this weekend, that they return home safely.
  • For Australians affected by cyclones and flooding, that they be protected as they begin the rebuilding process.
  • For Christians in Europe, Egypt, Somalia, China, the Middle East, and around the world who are persecuted for their faith.

Continuing Prayer Requests: 

  • For the souls of the reposed, especially of Kaye, Tim L., Mother Nadia Baranik, Fr. Constantine Brown, Elaine Dorko, Helen Boytim, and George Michael Ritchey.
  • For the infant Gregory, and his parents and doctors, that he be restored to the fullness of health.
  • For an abused woman and mother, A, who is in desperate straits and in need of many prayers.
  • For Kat's family, including their current and future children, that they be restored to health and guided in discernment and finances in their next adoption. (Kat has other prayer requests at the link.)
  • For Francisco and his mother who are surrounded by violence that the Lord protect them and give them hope and peace as well as guide them to jobs that allow them to provide for their needs and glorify Him.
  • For all of our clergy, religious, and monastics that they be directed in strength, courage, patience, and fortitude to radically live God's will for their lives.
  • For mothers, that they not abort their offspring; for infants in danger of being put to death in the womb; for a change of heart of providers of abortions and of their collaborators; for human victims of stem cell research, genetic manipulation, cloning, and euthanasia; and for all entrusted with the government of peoples, that they may promote the "Culture of Life" so as to put an end to the "culture of death."
  • For Your Word From The Wise and all who are connected to it, that it may bring glory to God.
  • For the intentions of those who are praying.
Do you have a prayer request you'd like to add? Please put it in the comment box any time this week so we can pray with you.

What's going on at Your Word From The Wise?
  • I followed up on the interviews that are out.
  • I researched several upcoming blog posts.
  • I got my first unsolicited email! It's a short book. The cover letter was 12 pages long! From what I gleaned from my skimming, it is a Protestant-inspired personal revelation which might have gnostic leanings. I feel so official now.
  • I've been having trouble with Facebook. The posts show on the Your Word From the Wise page wall, but don't show in my feed. Some friends see it in their feed while others don't. I think it is a Facebook issue and not something I can affect. Please check the blog or the fan page directly while Facebook works out the kinks.
