  • CWG Prayer Chain Post: July 21, 2019

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

    Genesis 18:1-10a

    The LORD appeared to Abraham by the terebinth of Mamre, as he sat in the entrance of his tent, while the day was growing hot. Looking up, Abraham saw three men standing nearby. When he saw them, he ran from the entrance of the tent to greet them; and bowing to the ground, he said: “Sir, if I may ask you this favor, please do not go on past your servant. Let some water be brought, that you may bathe your feet, and then rest yourselves under the tree. Now that you have come this close to your servant, let me bring you a little food, that you may refresh yourselves; and afterward, you may go on your way.” The men replied, “Very well, do as you have said.” Abraham hastened into the tent and told Sarah, “Quick, three measures of fine flour! Knead it and make rolls.” He ran to the herd, picked out a tender, choice steer, and gave it to a servant, who quickly prepared it. Then Abraham got some curds and milk, as well as the steer that had been prepared, and set these before the three men; and he waited on them under the tree while they ate. They asked Abraham, “Where is your wife Sarah?” He replied, “There in the tent.” One of them said, “I will surely return to you about this time next year, and Sarah will then have a son.”

    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,
