Friday May 20th, 2005 - Prayer of the Week on Act 6: 1-6.

Let us pray to the Lord. Lord have mercy

O Lord You instituted the role of the deaconate to guide Your church into ministering to those in need. Your first holy martyr Deacon Stephan showed what it means to lay down ones life for service to You. Today we pray for all those who have taken up Your cross and are doing ministries. Help them continue strong in the faith supporting the churches task to preach the gospel. May they be filled with the Holy Spirit and use their talents to the building up of Your Holy Church. Bless them and their ministry, call others to follow and bear the burden. We Pray in the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen

Bible text: Therefore, brethren, seek out from among you seven men of good reputation, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business; but we will give ourselves continually to prayer and to the ministry of the word. And the saying pleased the whole multitude. And they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and the Holy Spirit, and Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicolas, a proselyte from Antioch, whom they set before the apostles; and when they had prayed, they laid hands on them. Act 6:3-6.

Bible question - Do you think you are given an opportunity to fulfill your calling to a ministry in your parish - Explain ?

Monday May 9th, 2005 - Prayer of the Week for Mother's day and St. Thomas Sunday.

Let us pray to the Lord. Lord have mercy

O Lord we thank you for the gift of our mothers. We honor them today because they gave us life from their bodies as you gave us life from the Holy Spirit. They nurtured us by loving us the way You love us. They are examples revealing your loving presence in the world. May they be blessed as Apostle Thomas was blessed since they are among those who have not seen and have believed. We pray in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit Amen

Bible text: John 20: 24 -25 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.

Bible question - Do you think Thomas's need for proof of our Lord's resurrection diminishes his position as an apostle?
