Ezekiel 34:11 (trustworthy shepherds)

20 Aug Ezekiel 34:11 (trustworthy shepherds)

* Welcome God every morning before work by taking ~5 min to read this Living In Faith Exchange (LIFE) Group devotion (life-devotions.blogspot.com), which has snippets from Living Faith (livingfaith.com). All whatsoever you do in word or in work, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Col. 3:17

Thus says the Lord God: I myself will look after and tend my sheep. Ezekiel 34:11

Living Faith snippets: “Good shepherds guide and guard their sheep, leading them to nourishing pastures, making sure they do not come to harm. The Divine Shepherd does the same for the human flock, often through the graced way people treat one another. We can all be trustworthy shepherds…anyone concerned about and considerate enough to act for the well-being of another.” by Sr. Joyce Rupp

Pat nuggets:
* Gerard Klazura shared: “Here’s your chance to let the media know where the people stand on our faith in God, as a nation. NBC is taking a poll on “In God We Trust” motto on American currency. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/10103521/

* Stephanie Kemp shared (ProLife Prayer Vigil during Democratic National Convention, Martin Luther King Park, Denver, 7:30 to 9:00 PM, Mon, 25 Aug): “While the media and the nation will be transfixed on the sensational political proceedings inside the convention center we will be quietly praying in reparation for the evil of abortion that has cost America tens of millions of innocent lives lost. The abortion debate, which has taken a back seat throughout the presidential campaign so far, is now front and center with past voting records and comments from the two final candidates coming to light. There are seats left on the bus that will be leaving the north parking lot at 5pm [from St. Peter church]. Please call me at 481-4355. T-shirts are free to those who join us…”I survived Roe v. Wade”. Please prayerfully consider joining us and standing up for the unborn and their mothers on Monday night, August 25th. God bless you all for your support of life.”

Our Prayers: Abortion, chastity, our enemies/our troops, natural disasters, depression/ despair, dementia, cancer, prisoners, Liz Curry (Drew, 2 yr old, kidney tumor surgery recovery)
Faith Quote: “Those who have hope must live different lives! By your prayers, by the witness of your faith, by the fruitfulness of your charity, may you point the way towards that vast horizon of hope…the vision of a world reconciled and renewed in Christ Jesus, our Savior. To Him be all honor and glory, now and forever. Amen!” Pope Benedict (Apr visit to USA)

Through Christ Our Lord,
Phil 4:13

* Today’s Bible readings at www.usccb.org/nab/today.shtml. Reflection on readings at http://www.daily-meditations.org/index2.html
* Prayer: Prayer connects us with God’s will & His miracles, thereby changing us & helping others. Wayne Watson lyrics, “When God’s people pray, there is hope reborn, there is sin forgiven, and miracles you can’t explain await!” “If you pray that God will move a mountain and He doesn’t, assume Christ wants you to climb it instead & see Him.”
* Defend the unborn: ‘Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to death; don’t stand back and let them die’ (Prov 24:11). ‘Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you’ (Jer 1:5). ‘It is a great poverty that a child must die that you might live as you wish’ Blessed Mother Teresa. Prayer to End Abortion. Ask Blessed Margaret of Castello for her prayers to end abortion.
* Evangelization: Let’s make room for non-believers (be a friend, make a friend, lead friend to Christ) and perpetual re-evangelization of self and those near us, by way of daily prayer (relationship) and following Christ’s example of selfless love, mercy, and service.
Let’s joyfully live out the Good News and gladly tell others about it (Mark 16:15)!
