Being from Oklahoma... Could you tell me who first comes to mind regarding 1 Tim 2:1-6 praying for all those in authority. We are seeking a Volunteer State Prayer Leader for OK who is likely located near OK City for the National Governors' Prayer Team. Our website is www.NGPT.org. I would be happy to talk you or someone you know more about it. Tom Walker tomwalker@GovernorsPrayerTeam.org 317-409-6858
Paul, I'm just thankful that you and Delores are okay! Your message on Wed., the 6th, didn't show up on my computer until this morning. I'm sorry I didn't even think of giving you my phone # until while I was at Taste Island. You may call me at 580-916-5220 if you want to when you are in Durant. By the way, do you know Eric Dennis? He, too, lives in Kingston and is very nice. He pastors a church but I can't remember the name of the church.
Paul, I knew you didn't forget and just figured you have been busy. I would love to meet you and Delores at Taste Island on Thurs., April 8. I may have my daughter come with me. What time? I haven't driven since my foot surgery and my foot is still swollen, so I hope I can get shoes of some kind on my feet to wear to church tomorrow, (Easter).
What a bessing of contentment! Maybe the weather was "sour" but, obviously, the Son was present! The half-day of prayer and prayer retreats I've been a part of/lead have always been a blessing - and a surprise for those attending the first time. They wonder how they will fill the day, and discover God fills it for them. (You could offer a prayer that I get back to my monthly, personal day-of-prayer habit!)
Yes, that is another possibility. I can drive myself to Taste Island in Durant. I am a member of Silo Baptist Church in Durant, but it is out in Silo. Our pastor is Buddy Johnson. At the time when I moved to Durant from KY, my son-in-law was the Associate Pastor. I had served on a pastoral staff in KY for several years and when God released me from there, my mother and I moved to Durant. I have a sister and some of her family here, as well as my youngest daughter and her family.
Thanks, Paul, for your reply. Prayer is such a vital work of a follower of Jesus Christ. What a privilege God has given to us to communicate with Him. God bless you and your wife. I like going to BG's Catch for their catfish, etc. and who knows sometime when my kids bring me back there, you and your wife may also be there. :-)
Yes, Paul, I think I received even the first issue of Pray I've saved most of them, but have shared a few with pastors and friends. I just now looked at my collection of them and the earliest I found was ISSUE FIVE in MAR/APR, 1998. I had intended ordering the magazines I've loaned out, but procrastinated and didn't get that done. I guess now it is too late? I first heard about this wonderful PRAY! Magazine on one of Dr. James Dobson's radio programs. I belonged to their prayer group and then one day he announced that the Pray ! Magazine was going to be published.
Thank you for getting in touch. I have often wondered about you and Dolores. The Wallers are doing well. Don is off of all meds now. He is still having some joint and muscle discomfort. They say thst is because of all the medicine that he took.
We are knee deep into polotics now. I would never have believed it! Our son is a state rep for dist 15 here in the Springs and we've become quite involved. I think that this is the beginning of a ministry to poloticians. I'm excited.
So goog to hear from you!! Please keep in touch. We sure miss you guys.
Lots of love to you and Dolores
