Count-o-rama

Name-o-rama

WOD: “I confess to almighty God and to you, my brothers and sisters, that I have greatly sinned… in what I have done & in  what I have failed to do”  I always liked this part of mass, but the part that always stood-out the most was the part where we ask for forgiveness for things that we didn’t do.  Recently I have been meaning to call one of my close friends from HS but kept putting it off. I just found out he has been battling with depression again. It is moments like this that I understand why we ask for forgiveness for the things we have failed to do. God will place things in our heart it might be putting the EH on a complete stranger or just calling an old friend to check up on them. At the end we can either do what is placed on our heart or just keep moving on with our lives. Pray for my friend as he goes through this but also for the rest of us to do God’s will.

Prayer Request:

Prosciutto: Neighbor fell bruised up (Brenda), friend’s family with grieving process

Angus: Wife traveling, mom with dementia

Mr. Clean: for the kids at school dealing with outside issues (homeless, father getting arrested, 7th grader as adult of household, physical limitations), son turned 2,

Esse: pray for island of Puerto Rico

Steam Engine: friend dealing with depression (Landon)
