-Prayer
Loving God, we come to you trusting in your mercy and knowing that your steadfast love endures forever. Look with mercy on those who are harmed or displaced. Give them strength to meet the days ahead, your peace which passes all understanding and new hope in the resurrection. Move in those who are able to give aid, that we may be your hands and heart on earth. Be with all who offer assistance, may your Spirit uphold them. As you have made water a sign of your kingdom, and of cleansing and rebirth, grant your people vision to see a new life on the other side of disaster.
To you be given all honour and praise, through Jesus Christ our Saviour and Lord. Amen

Cowboy Church was a Swingin' Success!

Pelly Deanery Churches gathered last Sunday for a Cowboy Church Service out at Sharp's Saloon.  Reverend Kim donned a Stetson and read us a story about Ol' Lazarus, the rancher down in the coulee.  The kids had stick ponies, there were lots of hats and buckles, and we were well inspired by the harmonies of Prairie Blend. 



Thanks to Barry and Dale Sharp for the use of the Saloon, and to everyone for coming out. It was a gorgeous fall day, and we enjoyed a potluck lunch out in the crisp autumn air.

THOUGHTS & SMILES:   GROCERY LIST
 
Louise Redden, a poorly dressed lady with a look of defeat on her face, walked into a grocery  store.
She approached the owner of the store in a most humble manner and asked if he would let her charge a few groceries.
She softly explained that her husband was very ill and unable to work, they had seven children and they needed food.
John Longhouse, the grocer, scoffed at her and requested that she leave his store at once.
Visualizing the family needs, she said: 'Please, sir! I will bring you the money just as soon as I can.'
John told her he could not give her credit, since she did not have a charge account at his store.
Standing beside the counter was a customer who overheard the conversation between the two The customer walked  forward and told the grocer that he would stand good for whatever she needed for  her family. The grocer said in a very reluctant voice, 'Do you have a grocery list?'
Louise replied, 'Yes sir.' 'O.K' he said, 'put your grocery list on the scales and whatever your
grocery list weighs, I will give you that amount in groceries.'
Louise hesitated a moment with a bowed head, then she reached into her purse and took out a piece of paper and
scribbled something on it. She then laid the piece of paper on the scale carefully with her head still bowed.
The eyes of the grocer and the customer, showed amazement when the scales went down and stayed down.
The grocer, staring at the scales, turned slowly to the customer and said begrudgingly, 'I can't believe it.'
The customer smiled and the grocer started putting the groceries on the other side of the scales. The scale did not balance so he continued to put more and more groceries on them until the scales would hold no more.
The grocer stood there in utter disgust. Finally, he grabbed the piece of paper from the scales and looked at it with greater amazement.
It was not a grocery list, it was a prayer, which said:
'Dear Lord, you know my needs and I am leaving this in your hands.'
The grocer gave her the groceries that he had gathered and stood in stunned silence.
Louise thanked him and left the store. The other customer handed a hundred-dollar bill to the grocer and
said; 'It was worth every penny of it. Only God Knows how much a prayer weighs.'

THE POWER: When you receive this, say a prayer of thanks for
your own good fortune...
I believe if you will send this testimony out with prayer in faith, you will receive what you need God to
do in your and your families' life.
“So dear heart, trust God to heal the sick, provide food
for the hungry, clothes and shelter for those that don't
have as we do. Amen”

Prayer for you:
“The eyes beholding this message shall not behold evil, the hands
that will send this message to others shall not labour in vain, the mouth saying
Amen to this prayer shall laugh forever. Remain in God's love as you send
this prayer to everybody on your list. Have a lovely journey of life! Trust in the
Lord with all your heart and He will never fail you because He is Awesome! “

There is no cost but a lot of rewards. May you always walk with Angels
God Bless!
