    Well, it’s awfully long, but this is a big congregation and when people request, I put them up. The best way to read it is fast, just the names – God already knows all about it, so join your spirit to the Spirit’s and all will be well.

    Thank you, David. I just put that suggestion up top.

    O God of Love and Lord of Mercy, we pray that our sister Lael move ever closer to you as she prepares for her release from all the cares of this earthly existance. May all the joys of her life in this world be for her a reassurance of your continued presence throughout eternity. At that great moment of release and relief, we pray that you receive her spirit into your all-accepting heart of compassion, that she may rest in your love and peace for ever.

    ALL CHURCHES OF METRO ATLANTA AND SURROUNDING AREA’S

    Pastor(s) in this city should take notice….because you are being given a warning from God. Either you start doing what God called you to do which is to help the community and stop pocketing God’s money or we are going to pray to God to remove you from office. The Intercessory Group. We are tired of people not being fed the word of God.
    If you don’t know what you are doing, then get down from there. God wants to carry out His message. If you are not doing His will then please, for God’s sake, remove yourself from office and let the Real Man of God do the Lord’s work. This move of God is Real…
    Satan is deceiving so many people and we need anointed men of God. Please, I beg you do not hold back God’s people. If you do not know what you are doing, get help from a pastor that you know who is in God’s will. Put your pride and your self-righteous spirit aside and get delivered; lets go on and do this work for God. You know who you are. Our Intercessory Group will continue praying for you pastors who are in line with the word of God. “Right On!” But, for you pastors that are ripping God off and His people, “WOE UNTO YOU!”

    “THUS SAYS THE LORD OF HOST”

    MATTHEW 23:13-15 & 23:25, 27 & 29 LUKE 11:44 LUKE 6:24-26 LUKE 11:42-43, LUKE 11:46-47 & 52 REVELATION 8:13 & REVELATION 12:12

    MATTHEW 23:13 But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrite! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in.
    14 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense make long prayers. Therefore you will receive greater condemnation.
    15 “Wow to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrite! For you travel land and sea to win one proselyte, and when he is won, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves.
    23 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cumin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law; justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone.
    25 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you cleanse to outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of extortion and self-indulgence.
    27 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness.
    29 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you build the tombs of the prophets and adorn the monuments of the righteous,
    LUKE 11:44 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like graves which are not seen, and the men who walk over them are not aware of them.”
    LUKE 6:24 “But woe to you who are rich, For you have received your consolation.
    Luke 6:25 Woe to you who are full, For you shall hunger. Woe to you who laugh now, for you shall mourn and weep.
    26 Woe to you when all men speak well of you, for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
    LUKE 42: “But woe to you Pharisees! For you tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass by justice and the love of God. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone.
    43 “Woe to you Pharisee! For you love the best seats in the synagogues and greetings in the marketplaces.
    46 And He said, “ Woe to you also, lawyers! For you load men with burdens hard to bear, and you yourselves do not touch the burdens with one of your fingers.
    47 “Woe to you! For you build the tombs of the prophets, and your fathers killed them.
    52 “Woe to you lawyers! For you have taken away the key of knowledge. You did not enter in yourselves, and those who were entering in you hindered.”
    REVELATION 8:13 And I looked, and I heard and angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, “Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three angels who are about to sound!”
    12:12 “Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.”

    “THUS SAYS THE LORD OF HOST”

    Note: This word from the Lord was given to me in 2006. I was on a fast for 40 days and afterward this is what He told me to write. He told me to send it to everyone. I don’t know which Pastor this word is for I’m only doing what the Lord told me to do. God Bless You All. In Jesus Name.

    I have a prayer request corresponding to something being disseminated in church bulletins around the state of Indiana tomorrow, 2/26/2012.

    My prayer is there will families that see the bulletin from Advance Indiana and look past its political message. That it will end up helping some families that have kids struggling with their identify, sexual orientation and that they will learn about the Indiana Youth Group (IYG) and the resources it provides for LGBT and questioning kids.

      Mary-Elise,

      Subdeacon Andrew and I discussed this; your request is very appropriate. We support the IYG and I’ve commented in their favor on several Indiana newspaper websites.

      Since we only found out about this anti-Gay bulletin insert the day before, we reworded your request to cover this and future efforts to defend oppression in God’s name. I haven’t checked our list today but I bet it’s there or soon will be. Thank you.

      Copied and sent to Subdeacon Andrew, Keeper of the Prayer List.

      (It’s better for people to e-mail these requests rather than leave them as comments, because we’re slower to pick up on the comments. But eventually your requests get where they’re supposed to go, on the list.)

      This omission is probably my fault. I did receive in the last few weeks a prayer request that I failed to pass on immediately. Then when I looked for it, it was gone. Somehow my e-mail program magically changed itself to get rid of e-mails more than X days old. I apologize, kfeldpausch and Andrew. The number of e-mails here can get heavy at times, which the subdeacons try to help me with.

      We take prayer requests seriously, and we pray them ourselves, Andrew doesn’t just keep a list. But he can’t prevent a Vicar Breakdown.

He did well and is looking forward to resuming his usual schedule. We are so blessed to live in a lovely little seaside town with a wonderful marina just a mile or two down the road. Great for walking, breathing the clean ocean air, people watching, observing all the ocean sports, and marveling at God’s goodness to humankind.
