[We read] In the King James Bible, Ezekiel 22:30: "And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none."
O God, please help us and teach us to build a wall [of prayer] around the USA, Canada, Poland and Great Britain. Are you ready to stand in the gap, where God is the Helper and Teacher?
Please pray that Great Britain, Poland, the USA/Canada would overcome for: (The Acts 26.18).
* Poland, pray for freedom from dead religion to saving faith of Jesus Christ as the Saviour and the Lord by faith only,
* the Church in the USA & Canada & Great Britain – Pray for repentance and cleansing of the church - Matt. 3.12 "Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire."
* my family:
1. Stir up the hearts of my family for ministry for me, my wife Dorothy, our daughter Ann, and our sons Peter and Daniel - "..but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord" Joshua 24.15
2. Pray for God's will, wisdom, discernment, revelation and recognition for me and my family; I ask God for Edmund’s work situation, God's direction for Edmund , Dorothy, Peter, Daniel and Ann (also God's protection over the company where she works),
3. God's order in my work. I ask God for great wisdom at my work. Blessings and the knowledge of Jesus Christ for my bosses. Thank God for the continuation of my work.

I believe God has put you in his life for 2 rsnaoes.1. God wants you to break upIf your reason for breaking up with your boyfriend is sincerely because he lacks the faith in God and the Christ-like leadership as a potential husband, a breakup should send him to God's arms. If it doesn't he's not the man you need to be with anyways. If he's not a leader for you now, he won't be for you or your future children either without growth. Don't be afraid to let a good thing go for God's best. Being unequally yoked with your partner should be scarier than being in a relationship that doesn't glorify God. I understand the men in the past have hurt you, but you need emotional healing of your wounds and the faith that there are plenty of wonderful men out there that have a heart for God that want to treat their significant others with the utmost Christ-like love possible. Pray about it and try to put your own opinions aside and follow Christ with your whole heart so you can end up with the man God truly has in store for you. 2. God wants you to stay togetherStaying together means obvious change on both of your parts is imperative. You need more open communication. You shouldn't be asking an online forum of people for our opinions on this matter, you should be talking to your boyfriend about what you need from him in this relationship, and Lord willing, marriage, but since you asked, here's my take on it. If you truly think he is God's best for you, bring out the Christ follower in him. If he know's who God is but doesn't follow him, inspire him want to be more the man of God than he's ever been. Do that by challenging him in his faith. Start small with little things like starting a bible study that you do on your own and talk about every day later. Don't be overbearing about it, but give him the opportunity to really show you how much of a Godly man and leader he can be by needing him spiritually. Pray together, go to church together, go to bible study together, praise and worship God together, serve together. Focus on building a relationship with God as a couple. However, don't let that be your only source of holiness. You both need separate relationships with God because you are both individuals. You should have your own quiet times and if he doesn't, inspire him to start. Be weary not to be his crutch, but a reminder that he needs to step up and be a Godly man. If he is up for the challenge and sees that the changes are worth more than losing you, you've got yourself a keeper.These are the outcome of any relationship. Relationships either end broken up (or divorce unfortunately) or end in marriage . Either way, pray about all these things. Make sure you're in tune with God on all of this. Seek first the kingdom of God. In the end, God's will will ultimately be fulfilled. Have faith either way that God has amazing plans for you and your boyfriend regardless of your outcome as a couple. Best wishes and God bless.-Jeremy http://fdoyvdkci.com [url=http://flijxkf.com]flijxkf[/url] [link=http://lrzrfouef.com]lrzrfouef[/link]
Dear Nancy,Our praye
Dear Nancy,Our prayers go out to you and your sitaduadaadtion. You have sufadfered much and I know how much God the Father wants to wrap you up in His lovading hands and conadsole you and heal your wudnoed heart. What you clearly express is that you have a difadfiadculty with faith. In believading that God loves you peradsonadally as His child and that He wants to heal you. I hear the words of Jesus on the Cross, “My God, my God why have you foradsaken me.” Jesusb4knows the feeladings of despair. He has fealt them all, othaderadwise He could not comadpletely redeem us and all our expeadriadences. He assumed all to save all. Howadever, in the Gospels He calls us to have faith. Where there was litadtle faith, there were few miradaadcles. In my expeadriadence as a priest, many times I have seen that the door opens to healading when one looks to childadhood and sees the first wounds of the heart. It is there that the first walls were built up. The walls that donb4t let anyadbody in, not even God. He wonb4t force Himadself on us and that is why it is someadtimes conadfusading why He doesnb4t heal our present sitaduadaadtion.What can hapadpen is that the litadtle child can stop cryading and say to himadself or heradself (conadsciously or subadconadsciously), “I wonb4t let anyadbody else hurt me.” The heart is held bound by such a promise until it is renounced. One can also be comadmanded by ones paradents not to cry and were never given peradmisadsion to comadmuadniadcate the hurts one fealt. “Big girls donb4t cry” or other cliches that are lies and hurtadful to emoadtional growth. I peradsonadally heard “Whereb4s the blood?” when I tried to express the hurts I fealt. It is hard to know exactly what could be the block to you being healed, but I would recadomadmend a few steps.1. Ask God for the gift of faith and trust that He has given it to you.2. If you are Catholic I would go to Conadfesadsion and examadine your life to make sure you are workading to live a moral life as is indiadcated by the Gospels, espeadcially in the area of foradgiveadness. If we hate and resent othaders this can be a great obstaadcle to healading. Then go to Eucharist often askading the Lord to ever come deeper into your heart. To all the dark, lonely, empty, wudnoed parts. Donb4t be afraid. He is always very genadtle.3. Spend time in prayer in silence in a calm, speadcial place (I recadomadmend before the Blessed Sacraadment in adoadraadtion if it is availadable to you).4. It sounds like you may be aware of ALANON Which is for the famadily memadbers of addicts. Attend the meetadings and there are some great tapes by Fr. Emmaderadick on the 12 Steps and Detatchading with Love.5. Rememadber the man in the Gospel who was ill for 38 years. Jesus asked him, “Do you want to be healed?” This may sound strange but we can be so accusadtomed to the disadoradder around us that we can have an unconadscious fear of real change. Ask God for the courage to change if this is thea0case.May God conadsole you, guide you, heal you and strenghten you and may the saints interadcede for you on your journey.Fr. Isaac
“You can hear the oc
“You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a heradmit crab indsie and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someadone!response:We recieved this response today and it touched me in a unique way. First, I feel for the poor litadtle girl who sufadfered this unexadpected trauma and for her paradent who must have fealt horadriadble for havading given her, withadout knowading, the shell from hell. These are difadfiadcult things to bear and can make us feel teradriadbly guilty, but they can also be oporadtuadniadties for learnading about life. I would recadomadmend talkading to the young child about how this crab had taken the shell as his home and how he was scared at the sudadden pickading up of his home and then seeading a big (big for him) ear comadming into his entranceadway. He was simadply defendading what he thought was a threat. He would not have hurt the litadtle girl if he could have underadstood her intenadtions.We do the same things to one another. We often misadinadteradpret the intenadtions of othaders who “get too close” and we lash out and harm them. We then feel embarassed, often too embarassed to ask for foradgiveadness which could heal the misadunadderadstandading quickly. This all occurs, in many ciradcumadstances because we donb4t trust the closeadness of othaders because we have been hurt, we have been deceived, we have been abused and rejected and abanaddoned. So many of us need to ask the Lordb4s help in seeading how we have been wounded and how it affects our relaadtionadships with othaders. How do I lash out like this litadtle crab tryading to defend myself from a peradcieved threat? Who do I need to ask for foradgiveadness for havading hurt them?Finally, this litadtle trauma makes me think of teleadviadsion. Teleadviadsion can seem like a harmadless litadtle shell, but if we leave our chiladdren to watch whatadever they want(soaps, horadror shows, inapadproadpriadate caradtoons, shows or movies with vioadlence or sexadual conadtent) thinkading that they are learnading about life, we can be handading them a shell with a very visadcious crab which can make them scream with nightadmares or to grow up with a conadfused or promisadcuadous sexaduadaladity. With hyperadacadtivadity and vioadlent tenaddenadcies. It seems such an easy way to keep them enteradtained and “behavading” well, when what they really need is to be lisadtened to, to be hugged, to be played with. May God help us redisadcover his beauadtiadful beach where we can pick up the shell and hear His voice. Where we can appreadciadate His beauadtiadful nature with all its creaadtures, and bathe in the waters which cleanse our bodadies and our souls. Where we can lisadten to one another from the heart about of dreams and fears, our hurts and triadumphs.May God heal this litadtle girl and help her to underadstand the mysadtery behind the pain she has expeadriadenced. May she begin to trust ever more deeply her mother and that Godb4s creadation is not out to get her. We are in Lent and we should take moments to thank Jesus for recievading the worst from us. We have been like the crab and He like the litadtle girl, innoadcent and wantading to hear someadthing speadcial from within. Let us say someadthing really speadcial to Him. Like “Ib4m sorry and thank you for sufadferading for me.” Shalom — Fr.a0Isaac http://zlvotmjjz.com [url=http://yevkki.com]yevkki[/url] [link=http://zgeskkiwezc.com]zgeskkiwezc[/link]
, “If you want to kn
, “If you want to know how you are doing in your spiradiadtual growth, ask youradself two quesadtions. bfHow am I hanaddling fear and how am I hanaddling anger?” With anger I have lneerad a few imporadtant details (among othaders).. The greatadest spiradiadtual gifts for hanaddling anger are self-control and underadstandading. We need self-control in order to not react from our first impulse which will usuadally injure the other peradson with an awful look or comadment which would degrade, embarace or hurt the other peradson makading the sitaduadaadtion worse. Underadstandading is neceadsarry to process the fealading of anger. The way to process anger is to, first, admit to ouradselves that we feel anger; then ask ouradselves, “Why am I angry? What exactly is the issue at hand?” Finally, let the reaadson work to try to underadstand the other peradson or the sitaduadaadtion which is makading you angry. Feeladings need to be processed by the mind so that a reaadsonadable action can be taken. This is often the great probadlem in our lives in overadcomadming probadlems in famadily life. Someadbody makes a harsh comadment and the other (or othaders) begin to add in to the negadaadtivadity and arguadments and fights often result and the real issue is lost in the batadtle. This is usuadally the prodaduct of inteadrior wounds from the past that have not been healed. We should ask God for the gift of underadstandading. Getadting out of ouradselves and tryading to underadstand why the other peradson would make such a comadment often difadfuses (gets rid of) the impulse we have to respond with aggresadsion. Also to underadstand why we ouradselves respond with aggresadsion over litadtle issues. The secadond issue is fear which has been called the mind-killer. It is called a mind-killer because it often paradaadlyzes our mind from its capacadity to respond to a threatadenading sitaduadaadtion. It is good to recadogadnize that we are often fearadfull so that we can pray for courage to face the sitaduadaadtion at hand and not over-react or under-react. When we start feelading fear, many panic and thereby loose conadtact with reaadson and make unforadtuadnate deciadsions in what to do or not to do. We need to pray for courage so that we can have enough peace to think clearly and then act upon the deciadsion we make while thinkading clearly.Finally, foradgiveadness. When there is much anger and fear there is often a lack of foradgivading involved. Jesus was born of the Jewadish race which was and is full of anger and fear. They have always had fearce eneadmies and many have seriadous difadfiadculty foradgivading espeadcially with the arab nations. I rememadber being in the Holy Land in 2000 when I asked a Musadlim if he thought there could be peace between the Jews and the Arabs. He told me, “Never! The Koran says that there will be eteradnal enmity between the two races.” Isnb4t that sad news! Jesus comadmands us to foradgive our eneadmies in the only prayer that He taught and which is in the Bible (the Our Father). Jesus not only thought it was posadsiadble, He comadmanded us to do it. I find that the foladlowading prayer helps when peoadple think its imposadsiadble to foradgive. First, one should unite with Jesus in the Cross. We, through Bapadtism are one Body with Him. Thus, being with Him, we can let Him pray in and with us so that our prayers will be assured to have power which we may not have peradsonadally. Once we unite ouradselves with Him we can say (pray) with him, “Father foradgive them, they know not what they do.” A very short, powaderadfull and libaderadatading prayer.May God Bless you always,Fr.a0Isaac
Dear Marie,My heart
Dear Marie,My heart goes out to all you women and men who have been abused physadiadcally or sexaduadally. It is a teradriadble vioadlaadtion of trust and reecpst for the digadnity of the human peradson. It is a sin that cries out to heaven for jusadtice and is ceradtainly often influadenced by demonic influadences which always try to dehuadmanadize us.The good news is there is hope for healading and strengthadenading. Spiradiadtuadally there are two main types of prayers that can help immensly in such cases. One is to offer up a Mass (or series of Masses) for our ancesadtors who are in Puradgaadtory and who have passed on to us the affects of thier sinadfull lifestyles. The Sacred Scripadtures tell us that we are not morally culadpaadble for the sins of our ancesadtors (Ezekiel 18) but that we sure do sufadfer the conadseadquences of thier sinadfulladness (Ex 20:5). We can have tenaddenadcies to depresadsion, suiadcide, addicadtions, poor self-confidence, indifadferadence, anger issues, etc. One of the worst affects of paradents with scanaddeadlously sinadfull behavadior is that it is difadfiadcult to deveadladope a trustading, affecadtive relaadtionadship with God. What one does to preadpare for a Mass for the famadily is to make a famadily tree includading paradents, grandadparadents and great grandadparadents. One can also include aunts and uncles as well. On the paper with the tree one also puts sigadnifadiadcant behavadiors or events that could affect me (such as divorces, infiaddelity, peradverse behavadior, involveadment in cults, new age, atheadism, cursading, vioadlence, aboradtions, witchadcraft, being orphaned or abanaddoned, unloved, loneadliadness, etc). Durading the Mass we put them all on the altar (When I conadduct these Masses I put the sheets of the famadily trees on the altar) and plead that preadcious blood of the sacadriadfice of Jesus over them all grantading them mercy and also prayading for all the other peoadple who have been hurt by them that they too find healading and the lovading presadence of God in thier lives. We also give thanks for thier lives becouse in the end God used them to bring us into exhisadtence, He loves them too, and we have also inheradited good aspects from them as well (could be inteladliadgence, or skill in a craft or music, etc) It is a prayer of soladiaddaradity where we pray that our whole famadily will be blessed by Godb4s meradciadfull healading and freeading love through Jesus. The secadond type of powaderadfull prayer that I would recadomadmend is the healading of memadoadries. In this prayer one asks God to bless our bodadies, feeladings, emoadtions, memadoadries, imagadiadnaadtion and inteladlect and will. Then we ask the Holy Spirit to bring up a memadory that He would like to heal. When a memadory comes to mind, such as physadiadcal or sexadual abuse, we put ouradselves in the memadory as if we were re-living it, but this time we ask Jesus (and Mary) to come to us and help us, to conadsole us, and to help us not to be afraid. We can ask them what they think of us, because we can feel much shame or disadgust in what we have expeadriadenced or peradhaps we even blame ouradselves instead of the adult or other peradson who is truly at fault. It is amazading to me what Jesus and Mary say and do in these cases. Our past is litaderadally changed. It becomes filled with the love from heaven. The prayer using immagadiadnaadtion has this power because with God past, present and future are all in the present. He can heal the past by takading away the negadaadtive emoadtions that are trapped deep within and which conadstantly haunt us. One may do this prayer alone but I find many peoadple need help to enter into this type of prayer. For More inforadmaadtion on this topic one can google Healading of Memadoadries (Fr. DiGranaddis is a good author on this and Healading the Famadily Tree).The third recadomadmenaddaadtion is the groups of ALANON and the litaderadaadture. They deal with the emmoadtional sickadness that can infect us when we have lived with an extremely unhealthy peradson. Many who have not actuadally lived with an addict attend these meetadings because they find it is a solid and pracadtiadcal path to findading emoadtional peace. I finadish by leavading you with the serenadity prayer which is extemely simadple as it is powaderadfull.Lord, grant me the serenadity to accept the things that I canadnot change,Courage to change the things that I can,and the Wisaddom to know the difadferadence.God bless you,Fr.a0Isaac
