Many Came To Be Healed By Him: A Prayer Request
I have the privilege, once again, to serve as a team member for this weekend's retreat. There are 12 men and women coming to receive the healing and forgiveness that only our Lord can give. This the 49th retreat in our archdiocese (Newark, NJ)
Please pray that these men and women allow Christ to come into their hearts to heal and soften them so that they will not only experience His love and forgiveness, but also that of their aborted children. I would ask that you keep the team members in prayer as well, that we may come to serve as humble servants of our Lord, the Divine Physician.
Thank You and God Bless.
Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King
My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.
Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.
Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
