The festival of lights, Hanukkah, ended last night, Friday Dec 18.
Such a timely reminder of how God can release miraculous provision in the midst of the most dire circumstances. Behold 2020.
How mind bogglingt the entire world has been in “time out” since March. Current news brought to mind 2 specificarticles I had posted back in January re God’s heart for the new year of 2020.
The following is from a post Jan 7 “A Double Year”, “God’s Glory will begin to expose evil, subdue nations, bring down and break throuh all governmental opposition, and cause hidden resources to becomeaccessible.” A following post from Jan 23 “A Line” referred to Acts 5. “God is going to judge and remove unrighteousness. He is searchng nations, governments, chiurches, ministries, everywhere and everyone right down to each one of us. Truth will expose all corruption and dishonestly. That which has been hiddenwill be brought to the light. The justice of God will bring restoration.”
This same God of Hanukkah continues to bring His light into the darkness of 2020. Jesus is the Light of the World. His words release hope, healing, peace and more. Take heart, dear friends; if we pursue righteousness, do what is right in God’s sight, we will step into a new season. We will not only redeem and recover allthat has been stolen or discarded, but in increased measure. As we walk in His Light we walk out of fthe darkness of addictions, depression, poverty, self condemnation etc.
Tis the season to be merry and rejoice. God has not forgotten HIs promises to us.”He who follows rigtheousnes and mercy finds life, righteousneess and honor.”Prov 21:21

| 24 Hour Prayer for the World, Jan. 14 Thurs
Bruce McBarnette is arranging a 24-hour interfaith prayer for the world this Thursday and other days in February! Please sign up and pray. People of all faiths and backgrounds are invited to pray for the world, especially with respect to recovery from COVID-19. We take turns praying in 15 minute increments throughout the day. We are not joining together on a virtual platform or on the phone when offering this prayer. Each person prays from wherever that person is at whatever time that person signs up for. Each person signs up by putting his or her name in one of the cells to the right of the time the person is taking. Each cell represents a 15 minute interval which has its own start and end time.
Please join us and invite others as well!
People of any faith are welcome to sign up, including Sukyo Mahikari, the organizing group.

INTERFAITH PRAYER FOR THE WORLD
Written primarily By Claudene (Deane) Oliva
In the spirit of love and compassion, let us pray.
Spirit of Life, gods of many names, be in our hearts and minds as we come together today to pray for our world, particularly its recovery from COVID-19. We come today grateful for our blessings and hopeful for our future. Let us know that each from our own tradition comes today to lift our spirit in unity. Knowing that we are part of an interconnected web of life, let us acknowledge and embrace our oneness. We pray that we may be loving and able stewards of this world. We pray that we acknowledge our differences as we seek out our common ground, each of us working toward the good of all. We recognize that there is hurt and sorrow, deeds that confound us, and actions for which we can find no justification. Yet, we also know that there is untold good, folks that work every day for the benefit of all people. Let us stand with them. We pray that we have the strength to recognize the inconvenience of our soul work and to overcome the inertia that invades us during these difficult times. We pray that while we recognize the occasional tiredness in our bones and in our hearts, that we call upon the strength of our higher power that we might be the best person that we are called to be. Yes, let us be the good we want to see in others. Let us work to be the change that we seek. As we renew these goals in our hearts, let us say, Amen. |
