Father Pat will be in Boston for medical tests from September 7th-11th.
Morning Prayer will not contain prayer intentions during that time, since it
has already been prepared.  Our Pastoral Minister Margie will Morning Prayer
during that time.

"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore
we will not fear, though the earth should change, though the mountains shake
in the heart of the sea; though its waters roar and foam, though the
mountains tremble with its tumult.  There is a river whose streams make glad
the city of God, the holy habitation of the Most High. God is in the midst
of the city; it shall not be moved; God will help it when the morning
dawns."  ~Psalm 46:1-5
..=:  M E D I T A T I O N   F O R   T H E   D A Y  :=.
In God's strength we can conquer life.  Our conquering power is the grace of
God.  There can be no complete failure with God.  When we want to make the
best of life, then we can live as near as possible to God, the master and
giver of all life.  Our reward for depending on God's strength can be sure.
Sometimes the reward can be renewed power to face life, sometimes wrong
thinking overcome, sometimes people brought to a new way of living. Whatever
success comes will not be our own doing, but largely the working out of the
grace of God.
..=: P R A Y E R   F O R   T H E   D A Y  :=.
I pray that I may try to rely more fully on the grace of God.  I pray that I
may live a victorious life.

We pray for unity in our country and that we may build a Culture of Life. We
pray for the safety of our troops, their safe return and their families at
home.  We pray for a deep and profound respect for life, and for the courage
and willingness to stand up for life. We pray for one another, for those who
have asked our prayers and for those who need our prayers the most. Have a
good day!
May God Bless you and those you love, and keep you safe!
Father Pat
