     From Father Pat Umberger 

O U T    O F    T O W N
I'll be out of town with my priest support group from Sunday afternoon
through Wednesday.  Margie, our Pastoral Minister will send Morning Prayer
in my absence.  Prayer intentions will not be included with Morning Prayer
during this time.  Keep us in your prayers during this annual time of

"Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer.  From the end of the earth I call
to you, when my heart is faint. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I;
for you are my refuge, a strong tower against the enemy.  Let me abide in
your tent forever, find refuge under the shelter of your wings."  ~Psalm

Like the shadow of a great rock in a desert land, God can be our refuge from
the ills of life.  The old hymn says, "Rock of ages, cleft for me, let me
hide myself in Thee."  God can be our shelter from the storm. His power can
protect us from every temptation and defeat. We can try to feel God's divine
power--call on it--accept it-- and use it.  Armed with that power, we can
face anything.  Each day, we can seek safety in God's secret place, in
communion with him.  We cannot be wholly touched or seriously harmed there.
God can always be our refuge.

.=: P R A Y E R   F O R   T H E   D A Y  :=.

I pray that I may find a haven in the thought of God.  I pray that I may
abide in that secret place, in communion with God.

Clairann asks prayers for an elderly man who has been missing for two weeks,
and for his family. Please pray for a baby boy who was born 3 days ago with
holes in his lungs. A member asks for prayers for my son-in-law who severely
injured his back at work.

An aunt asks for prayers for her great nephew in a difficult situation so
that he will receive the love, patience and understanding that he needs.
Gina asks for prayers as she has been told that she has breast cancer and
now has a shadow on her lung or spine.

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!
