    Ponderings for the month .......

    *​
    If you lose hope,
    somehow you lose the vitality
    that keeps life moving,
    you lose that courage to be,
    that quality that helps you go on
    in spite of it all.
    And so today I still have a dream.
    Martin Luther King Jr.

    *​

    A Hasidic Tale:

    Late one evening a poor farmer on his way back from
    the market found himself without his prayer book. The
    wheel of his cart had come off right in the middle of
    the woods and it distressed him that this day should
    pass without his having said his prayers.

    So this is the prayer he made: “I have done something
    very foolish, Lord. I came away from home this morning
    without my prayer book and my memory is such
    that I cannot recite a single prayer without it. So this
    is what I am going to do: I shall recite the alphabet
    five times very slowly and you, to whom all prayers
    are known, can put the letters together to form
    the prayers I can’t remember.”

    And the Lord said to his angels, “Of all the prayers I
    have heard today, this one was undoubtedly the best
    because it came from a heart that was simple
    and sincere.”
    From the book The Prayer of the Frog
    by Anthony de Mello

    A Request to All (whether or not you are part of the Prayer Tree)

    On Friday 8 August, at 8 am or 8 pm
    (your local day and time – or pick another time that is suitable for you)
    could you please pause to remember all those ill with severe ME?

    Say a prayer or just pause for a minute as a way to offer our support.

    Thanks.

    Can someone pray for me. (Branch) I am sobbing as I type. I am in horrible pain and have big decisions to make about a PNS stimulator or radioactive frequency ablation. I am in pain from head to toe. My muscles won't stop twitching.

    I want to take my life. I am not trying to be dramatic. Everything hurts. I need prayer because nothing else is working.

    Please add me to your list. Pray for sleep for me and for relief. I am not a religious person, but I am desperate.

    Please.

    maryb, I am listing your prayer request as "For Yazidis being persecuted". Can you clarify what you would like us to pray for? I'll make the change to the list accordingly.
