CWG Prayer Chain Post: January 28, 2013

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

Nehemiah 8:5-6, 8-10
In full view of all the people — since he stood higher than them all — Ezra opened the book; and when he opened it, all the people stood up. Then Ezra blessed Yahweh, the great God, and all the people raised their hands and answered, ‘Amen! Amen!’; then they bowed down and, face to the ground, prostrated themselves before Yahweh. Ezra read from the book of the Law of God, translating and giving the sense; so the reading was understood. Then His Excellency Nehemiah and the priest-scribe Ezra and the Levites who were instructing the people said to all the people, ‘Today is sacred to Yahweh your God. Do not be mournful, do not weep.’ For the people were all in tears as they listened to the words of the Law. He then said, ‘You may go; eat what is rich, drink what is sweet and send a helping to the man who has nothing prepared. For today is sacred to our Lord. Do not be sad: the joy of Yahweh is your stronghold.’

The power of prayer and the power of people praying.

JANUARY INTENTION PRAYER 

PRAYER TO THE HOLY FAMILY
Lord Jesus Christ, who, being made subject to Mary and Joseph, didst consecrate domestic life by Thine ineffable virtues; grant that we, with the assistance of both, may be taught by the example of Thy holy Family and may attain to its everlasting fellowship. Who livest and reignest, world without end. Amen.

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.

  1. That God will bless our family for our Spiritual, Physical and Financial needs, especially with help in our job searches/decisions.

  2. Don Mulcare says:

    For the leaders of our church, that they may urge the faithful as did Ezra and Nehemiah, to celebrate the day of the Lord as a joyful community, with particular concern for those who are less fortunate.

    Let us pray to the Lord.
