  • CWG Prayer Chain Post: July 25, 2021

    The CWG Prayer Chain Post is a weekly post for members to include their special intentions by adding a comment.

    2 Kings 4:42-44

    A man came from Baal-shalishah bringing to Elisha, the man of God, twenty barley loaves made from the firstfruits, and fresh grain in the ear. Elisha said, “Give it to the people to eat.” But his servant objected, “How can I set this before a hundred people?” Elisha insisted, “Give it to the people to eat. For thus says the LORD, ‘They shall eat and there shall be some left over.’” And when they had eaten, there was some leftover, as the LORD had said.

    The power of prayer and the power of people praying.

    JULY INTENTION PRAYER (from Psalms 103)

    Bless God, my soul, from the depths of my being, his holy name;
    bless God, my soul, never forget all his acts of kindness.
    He forgives all your offenses, cures all your diseases,
    he redeems your life from the abyss, crowns you with faithful love and tenderness;
    God is tenderness and pity, slow to anger and rich in faithful love;
    his indignation does not last forever, nor his resentment remains for all time;
    he does not treat us as our sins deserve, nor repay us as befits our offenses.
    As the height of heaven above earth, so strong is his faithful love for those who fear him.

    Please leave a comment with your intention. If you have problems adding an intention, email it to Mike Hays at coachhays(at)gmail(dot)com and I will add it.  God bless.

The CWG Prayer

Holy Family, guide our minds, our hearts, our hands, as we write, speak, illustrate – help our words to live in union with the Word.

Teach us discipline and skill to use the talents God gives us.

Give us also insight and courage to convey God's love through our craft, and humility to be open to His divine will, shaping our lives, in loving loyalty to His Church.

In Christ's name,
