Sunday August 19th – Open Thread

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

      Thank you for this link, Janie, love Joe.

      America Georgia Grace turned me onto Joe earlier this year.

      Thinking of you, Grace, we are all keeping the branches warm for you here at our Refuge.

    I81 is a major north south interstate, on the east coast, sorta. It starts in Tn and goes north along the western side of Va. A Sunday in August is NOT a good day to drive this, unless you want to explore many secondary roads in an effort to drive around 75 miles or so of traffic jams, caused by several severe accidents. So, I have learned the hard way. I have also seen much of James Madison University which is in Harrisonburg. It is amazing what you discover when the interstate is messed up. It is lovely.

          Sobriquet, my prayers and heart are with you. I am so saddened to hear of your loss.

          May God grant you and your family peace and comfort at this difficulty time.

          May your wonderful memories with your brother in law carry you through this time of mourning.


          O Loving Father and Savior, send Your angels to carry the soul of your servant from this earth to the heavenly place of eternal and everlasting life.

          Let family and friends who have passed before in faith be reunited in joy with the departed.

          Forgive any wrongs that have been committed and welcome this beloved spirit into the warm embrace of Your unending peace.

          Amen 🙏

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    The Miracle Prayer

    Lord Jesus, I come before you, just as I am, I am sorry for my sins, I repent of my sins, please forgive me. In your Name, I forgive all others for what they have done against me. I renounce Satan, the evil spirits and all their works. I give you my entire self, Lord Jesus, now and forever. I invite you into my life, Jesus. I accept you as my Lord, God and Saviour. Heal me, change me, strengthen me in body, soul, and spirit.

    Come Lord Jesus, cover me with your Precious Blood, and fill me with your Holy Spirit. I love you Lord Jesus. I praise you Jesus. I thank you Jesus. I shall follow you every day of my life. Amen.

    Mary, My Mother, Queen of Peace, St. Peregrine, the cancer saint, all the Angels and Saints, please help me. Amen.

    Say this prayer faithfully, no matter how you feel. When you come to the point where you sincerely mean each word with all your heart, Jesus will change your whole life in a very special way. You will see.

    Prayer © 1993 Peter M. Rookey and Servite Fathers, O.S.M.

    “Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” (Hebrews 4:16)
