Psalm 81:8 (God’s gentle thunder)

20 Mar Psalm 81:8 (God’s gentle thunder)

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

In distress you called, and I rescued you; Unseen, I spoke to you in thunder. Psalm 81:8

Living Faith snippets: “As I look back over the years, things I counted on disappeared; children grew up and moved out, through death and unforeseen circumstances relationships and work opportunities I cherished ended. I protested, sometimes very loudly but eventually I become aware that the very things I resisted thrust me into new depths of prayer, new images of God and hopefully new levels of compassion and understanding – all things I have ardently prayed for through the years.” by Terri Mifek

Sr. Francelle devotion: St. Joseph

Faith Challenge: Let’s challenge each other to joyfully live out the Good News. Suggestions?
* NEW: Let’s encourage someone today.

Culture of Life (News): LifeSiteNews, American Family Association, Priests for Life
* Let’s never forget the horrific reality of abortion (images)…#1 cause of death in America. Let’s share ProLife Truth (John 14:6)…rebuilding a Culture of Life (Matt 5:16)!
* NOW (25 Feb-5 Apr): Support the 40 Days for Life campaign by praying by an abortion mill for one hour (Matt 26:40)…let’s defend the voiceless unborn!
* NEW: Stephanie Kemp shared, “There is a 7 day Jericho March with adoration at Planned Parenthood (1330 West Colorado Ave, C. Springs). The Jericho March will be held from Sun, March 22 through Sat, March 28th at 3 p.m. each day. Fr. Bill Carmody will lead the march, carrying the Blessed Sacrament each day. After we walk around the entire block, there will be adoration of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament for the remainder of the hour. Joshua 6: 3-5

Our Prayers: Those who pray together stay together. Fasting ideas below.
* Prayer to end abortion, abused children, chastity, peace, our enemies, our troops, depression/ despair, prisoners, ProLife politicians, lack of faith, illnesses/injuries, jobs, Paul Cote (sister Christine with cancer), John Lown (Allan Hillberg in ICU), Sharmane Calvin (Dr. Earl passed away/his family)
* NEW: Kathy Castle (16 cars pulled into Planned Parenthood with young girls), Carla Neal (Katelyn, Mollie, Pam Bert, Edna, Maureen, Cathy, Robin and their families)

Faith Quote: “If you teach your daughter to be good rather than simply happy, she will become both. Humility…can be taught only by example.” Meg Meeker (“Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters”)

Through Christ for ProLife,
Phil 4:13

* Prayer: Prayer connects us with God’s will & His miracles, changing us & helping others. ‘If you pray that God will move a mountain and He doesn’t, assume Christ wants you to climb it instead.’
* Fasting: Let’s fast from things that take our eyes off Jesus (selfishness, bitterness, being so critical, impatience, gossip, excessive video games, etc) and take on things that fix our eyes on Jesus (selflessness, kindness, compassion, forgiveness, patience, understanding, caring, helping, listening).
* 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).
* Evangelization: Let’s make room for unbelievers (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 invite others to join our LIFE Group…Rich or Pat will gladly add them to the devotions distribution list (Mark 16:15)!
