The Prayer List is a daily feature at OCICBW... with an option to light a candle as you pray. If anybody has any concerns they would like included on tomorrow's list please email me with details or leave your request in the comments to this post. I will include relevant photos if provided.


A massive congratulations to my longstanding internet friend, Jay Simser, whose blog, BAILEY'S BUDDY has just received its 200000th. hit. If there is such a thing as an archetypal blog then Jay's blog would be a perfect example. It's a diary of his life and those friends (human, canine and feline) he shares it with. Jay is a gentleman and a godly man. I count it as an honour to know him.

Congratulations to Scott Anderson. He will be Rev. Scott Anderson on October 8th when he is ordained into the ministry of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) He is the first openly gay man to be ordained since the PC(USA) lifted the barrier this past summer.



The Anglican Bishop in Jerusalem, The Rt. Revd Suheil Dawani, and his family are celebrating today after finally getting permission to remain in the city after many months of legal and diplomat appeals. He spoke of his delight at finally getting the Residency Permits that as someone born in Nablus in the West Bank must have to stay in East Jerusalem, where St. George Anglican Cathedral and the bishop's offices are located.

"I want to thank all of you, my friends and colleagues throughout the Anglican Episcopal Communion and the Worldwide Christian Community, for your continued support throughout this time. It has been deeply appreciated and most encouraging knowing that we have been kept in your thoughts and prayers as we awaited this most heartening outcome."



Spare a prayer for Tim at FOLLOWING THE VOICE WITHIN who is "experiencing transcendental difficulties" and a twinge of loneliness at the moment.



A powerful typhoon has struck the Philippines, triggering floods and cutting power in the capital Manila and throughout the main island, Luzon.



Syrian troops firing machine-guns and backed by tanks have stormed the restive central town of Rastan. The tanks and other armoured vehicles entered Rastan early on Tuesday after besieging it for two days.

THE PRAYER LIST: 27TH. SEPTEMBER 2011 — 6 Comments

  1. Prayers and supplications rising constantly, including for Mad Priest himself and still for Dave in Arkansas. I know that darkness and hopelessness so well myself.

    Jonathan, I would appreciate it if you would add my mother to the prayer list tomorrow. You may remember I requested prayer for her back in July. Since then she has had a very spotty recovery and now has had a few setbacks, including another emergency surgery on Sunday.

    She worries all the time about her inability to bounce back, which exacerbates her condition and so she is stuck in a vicious circle of decline right now.

    I pray that God will grant her the grace to accept His healing as it unfolds and freedom from her worries so she may actually heal.

    Thank you!

  2. My cousin was married for a short time to a young man from Nepal. He just lost two of his three brothers and a sister-in-law in a plane crash this past weekend in Nepal. Please pray for Anjan and his family as they grieve for their great loss. Please pray for the others on that flight and their families. There were nineteen on board, including flight crew.

  3. Oh BooCat! That is so awful. I have moved Anjan and those affected to the top of my prayer list.

    May Light perpetual shine upon them in mercy and love.

  4. My dad just had a squamous cell carcinoma cut out of his scalp (leaving a two inch stitched incision).

    The Ancient Fart says he feels fine. But he’s WW2 vet: if he didn’t, AS IF he’d say so? :-X (So if there are any spare prayers laying about…)
