Pslam 77:12 (“in memory of me”)

07 Aug Pslam 77:12 (“in memory of me”)

Let’s welcome God this morning by reflecting on this short Living In Faith Exchange (LIFE) Group devotion (, which is based on Living Faith. All whatsoever you do in word or in work, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Col. 3:17

I remember the deeds of the Lord. Psalm 77:12 (full readings)

Living Faith snippets: “To remember what God has done…His creating, His saving, His sending the Spirit…is to view our life in the context of reality. Only then can we see our way forward. If we forget what God has done, we neglect reality; inevitably, we go astray. How do we remember? Above all, we remember in the Mass. Not simply a remembering of a past event, the Mass is a great remembering in which Christ’s sacrifice again becomes present to us. We remember that God has created us, that He has sent His Son to us, that His Son has given His life for us and for all.” Kevin Perrota

Faith Challenge: Let’s invite others to join the LIFE Group (>200 Christians).
* NEW members Tiffany Catellier and Jay/Shannon Ketchum, welcome!
* NEW: “What means will you or I use today to remember the deeds of the Lord?” Kevin Perrota

LIFE Group nuggets:
* Tom Noon: “St Paul’s Twitter: On the road to Damascus … just got knocked off my horse … saw Son of God … things are gonna change.”
* Anonymous: “Thanks for letting me be a part of the Life group. One of your messages a couple of weeks ago really hit home. I was thinking about changing positions and the message of the day was to “stay put”. Good thing I did or I would be jobless now. Thank you!!”
* Grace Castle: “I just love babies!”
* Sr. Francelle: Year of the Priests

Counter-Culture 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 courageously share ProLife Truth (John 14:6) to create social tension for exposing abortion’s unjust peace…rebuilding a Culture of Life (Matt 5:16) and setting the unborn free!

Our Prayers: Those who pray together stay together. Fasting ideas in footnote below.
* Prayer to end abortion, abused children, chastity, peace, our enemies, our troops, depression/ despair, prisoners, ProLife politicians, illnesses/injuries, jobs, natural disasters, refugees, addictions, Maureen Rogers (redoing knee replacement on 11 Aug), Rich Reich (friend Carolyn battling cancer)
* NEW: Carla Neal (Evelyn, Dan, Maureen, Sally, Eddie and their families), Pat Castle (for persecuted believers around the world)

Feast Day: St. Sixtus II

Faith Quote: “The most common mistake Christians make in worship today is seeking an experience rather than seeking God. They look for a feeling, and if it happens, they conclude that they have worshiped. Wrong! Seeking a feeling, even the feeling of closeness to Christ, is not worship.” by Rick Warren

Through Christ our Lord,
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.
