Hello from Barbara's Entourage!

This week played host to National Prayer Day on Thursday. We were encouraged to pray for our country and its leaders. This country, and the world, as a whole, is going through spiritual turmoil. Perhaps many of the leaders don't recognize or understand what's really going on in their countries. But, the Bible says that if "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14

Let's continue to hold up the leaders of America, that they will be led by the Spirit of God, and lean not to their own understanding, but put God first, asking Him to help them, when making important decisions that will effect the lives of all persons.

The Power of Prayer

Prayer is our communion with God. Each of us should have a healthy prayer life, in order to stay connected with God, and have the ability to intevene in prayer for others. Here you'll find links to prayer sites and poems. There is also a connection to PRAYER WEB, where you can submit a prayer request and request a response.

A little old man was escorted into the witness box. After being sworn in, the lawyer asked him to explain what happened.

After a lengthy discussion of the events leading up to the incident, he finally got around to the meat of the case, saying " ... and then she hit me with a maple leaf."

"Surely that couldn't have caused you any serious injury?" said the lawyer.

"Are you kidding?" exclaimed the old man. "It was the leaf from the center of our dining room table!"


A friend was having a cleaning bee at their church. Several ladies showed up with vacuum cleaners to clean the sanctuary. After an hour of hard work one lady noticed that her machine wasn't working. She flicked the switch and nothing happened. She turned to notice that the whole time she had been working so hard her vacuum cleaner was not plugged in but she hadn't noticed because all the noise of the other machines! Needless to say, the pastor had a very good sermon illustration that Sunday! Even though there is a lot of noise around and hard work, it doesn't mean a thing if YOU are not plugged in to the power source!

"Mother," asked a child, "since nothing is ever lost, where do all our thoughts go?"

"To God," answered the mother gravely, "who remembers them forever."

"Forever!" said the child. he bent his head, and, drawing closer to his mother, murmured, "I am frightened!"

Which of us have not felt the same?
