Default Spring/Summer Joys, Concerns and Prayer Circle 2017

The beautiful spring came; and when Nature resumes her loveliness, the human soul is apt to revive also. —Harriet Ann Jacobs



Welcome to the Spring/Summer thread! In this time of rebirth, renewal and the return of longer days, let us find a small space of quiet to recognize our place of peace and strength.


As a reminder:
If you need a prayer/good thought/healing energy (whatever term your faith or tradition embraces), it is welcome here.

If you have a joy that you want to share, here's the spot.

This is for all denominations and traditions.
There will be no debating of whose truth is "right".
This won't be a good place for asking questions about the details of another's religious/spiritual practices, just a safe space for dropping your cares and counting your blessings.

A few requests for those with time and space in their prayers...

A member here who has since moved to their facility to serve their sentence is learning to adjust to life inside. I ask for prayers for comfort and reassurance for them, for strength and focus on using their time productively and for resiliency in the bond between parent and child while they are away.

A dear friend of mine is also struggling right now for answers. Please pray for them and ask God to grant them patience and peace in this time of unrest.

Today I was out running errands and drove past a guy sitting in the shade. He signaled at me and asked if I had any water. I shrugged, said sorry...no. And then passed through the intersection. I stopped at the gas station and bought water and juice to take back. It's 102 here today.

My first impression is he's been in the heat too long. But more than likely it's heroin and heat. I leave him but can't shake that he's there. I go home, put some things in a bag to take back to him-- some food, clean socks and a shirt.

I sat with him for a while. I ask if he has somewhere to go, if he knows where the shelter is. No...yes, but I'm not going there. Then he asks for a ride into town. Obviously everything in my head screamed no, but I have a home to go to and plenty of water and AC and a shower and, and....

I help him gather his stuff, his ID falls out. I pick it up and hand it to him, his name is Anthony and he's been released from the local prison. In my car we talk about the six days he's been out. What his goals are.

He's a kid who guessed that I might like punk music and had a good understanding of people like him. He apologized that he might be making my car seat smell bad. I don't particularly like punk but I understand him more now that I did before learning about prison life and how getting dumped out in the desert without any more resources than when you went in is a cycle he's going to be on for a while.

Please pray for Anthony today. That he meets other people who give him a ride, or water or hope.

Thank you. Prayers are always needed. Prayers for a job that I can work around my kid's schedule and weekends so I can visit my boyfriend. Financial security and stability. Peace, love, joy, and prosperity. Thank you.

Prayers for my love and mother for their health and well-being. The past few years have been an up and down battle for the both of them.

Please pray for the health and recovery of a PTO family member who has suffered an accident. Give their loved ones strength and comfort during this time and surround them with caring and skilled providers.
