Where do I fit?

The focus of ministry to ponder in your Spirit for the month of January is:
How do I best fit into this situation? Can I be of maximum service or will I be a hindrance?
Pray about it!

A Gathering of Friends Spreads its Wings!

This year in 2011, the concept of “A Gathering of Friends” will go one step further.
Over the past year, Rev. Zorn facilitated a “home church” meeting with her friends and family from Holy Angels, based on need.
Due to the success of this “Home Church” concept, Rev. Zorn will personally design a “Home Retreat” format for your group.
Spread the Good News!

Ask In My Name

“For what you ask for you shall receive.”
Ask for my  help and I am there.
Whatever you need will be fulfilled by me.

What is “A Gathering of Friends?”

 

Kindred Spirits

“A Gathering of Friends” is the literally the church in motion without walls. This is a time set apart for kindred spirits to come together. We pray for the Spirit of God to come upon us, bless us, as well as those we assist through our ministry,” Helping One Family at a Time.”

Foundation: Several years ago, individuals began gathering in homes for a time of quiet reflection, prayer and fellowship. We now continue this in tradition by meeting God in the moment.

Christ’s Mission: “For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven!”  Remember friends, with God, everything comes in His time and not ours.

Your Decision: “In all spiritual endeavors the place to begin is with God”. God will move mountains but you have to bring the bulldozer, yourself!

During this great Season of Change, this time of spiritual revival through the Power of Prayer, we encourage you to stand with us.

In addition to the Power of Prayer, “Wherever two or three are gathered together there He stands in the midst of us.”

We are healed in the presence of Christ when we break bread, fellowship, and reach out to one another.

“I know thy works; Behold, I have set before thee an open door”

Hope

“Hope is the spark that glistens on the top of the Gulf of Mexico as the sun sets on the western horizon.
Hope knows that today is passing and tomorrow is not here yet.
Hope knows that God is holding you in his arms from sunrise to sunset, and from sunset to dawn.”
“I am with you always. This is your truth, until the ends of the earth.”

On the Horizon of Doubt

“The boat was in the middle of the sea and was being battered by the waves, for the wind was against them.
Shortly before dawn Jesus came to them, walking on the sea.
When His friends saw him walking on the sea, they were terrified and said, “It’s a ghost!” And they screamed in terror.
Immediately Jesus said to them, “Have courage! It is I. Stop being afraid!”
Peter answered him, “Lord, if it’s you, order me to come to you on the water.”
Jesus said, “Come on!” So Peter got down out of the boat, started walking on the water, and came to Jesus. But when he noticed the strong wind, he was frightened. As he began to sink, he shouted, “Lord, save me!”
At once, Jesus reached out his hand, caught him, and said to him, “You who have so little faith, why did you doubt?”
As they got into the boat, the wind stopped blowing.” (Matthew Chapter 14)
Now that you have been rescued, what will you do?
Will you swim to shore, embracing the new horizon of the day, or will you wallow in that which does not serve on any level?
Doubt eats away at the very core on one’s Spirit. It sets up an ease of dissension and mistrust in others, believing that things will never be quite right again.
This doubting belief is out of the contrary and goes against the grain of the goodness of God, and what he wants for each of his children.
Now, take a moment, look closer at the shoreline. What do you see?
Do you see light in the midst of it all? Do you see hope in the dawn of a new tomorrow?
Will you embrace that which is calling you to it?
“I am telling you child that I am always around you. When you doubt, give it to me.” (30 Messages of Hope, page 8)

What is the “Light of Love?”

The “Light of Love” is what connects you to your own awareness of God through prayer.

It is through your connection in prayer, one imagines a soft golden light, (the pure Light of Christ) surrounding and encompassing the whole body. This is followed by another layer of soft pink (the Love of Christ).

Send the “Light of Love” to every member of your family, every part of your abode, and most important, send this “Light of Love” to the entire globe.

When you hear about an earth change or disaster, send the “Light of Love” daily to this area.

As the earth changes increase, and they will, so will the need for intensive prayer for this planet that you call home.

As the power of prayer increases among individuals and groups, so will the spiritual awareness of God come to Light for all to see.

Spiritual awareness will happen in pockets in small places.

Humanity is looking for the next big thing.

Your culture is obsessed in looking for the next big star or big story.

Man looks outside of her/him instead of finding the God within.

The ‘God’ shift will happen in small ways and small spaces this is where the greatest healing will come about.

The incident in the Gulf of Mexico with the oil spill is only the beginning.

This disaster or shift is visible and something you can see off the shores of your nation.

Of course, man has a way of desensitizing life and once the cleanup is under way the conscious will shift to something else.

It is important that you continue to pray for this body of water and its healing.

Mother Nature, the earth mother will find a way to clean this area.

The rumblings are happening and the earth is waking up.

Now it is time for humanity to wake up.

Keep on praying!

Prayer for World Peace 1978

Words from the past can heal the present:

“Lord, we pray for the power to be gentle, the strength to be forgiving, the patience to be understanding, and the endurance to accept the consequences of holding to what we believe to be right.
May we put our trust in the power of good to overcome evil, and the power of love to overcome hatred.
We pray for the vision to see and the faith to believe in a world emancipated from violence; a new world where fear shall no longer lead men to commit injustice, nor selfishness make them bring suffering to others.
Help us to devote our whole life and thought, and energy to the task of making peace, praying always for the inspiration, and the power to fulfill the destiny for which we and all men were created. Amen!”

The Winds of Change!

The winds of change blow this way and that way. We never know which way the winds will blow in our lives.
“About 5,000 men were fed that day, in addition to all the women and children!
Immediately after this, Jesus insisted that His disciples get back into the boat and cross to the other side of the lake, while He sent the people home.
After sending them home, He went up into the hills by Himself to pray. Night fell while He was there alone.
Meanwhile, the disciples were in trouble far away from land, for a strong wind had risen, and they were fighting heavy waves.”

Keep yourself anchored in and God the Light, and all will be well.
Remember the words of Jesus,” Don’t be afraid,” He said. “Take courage. I am here! ”
When the wind blows and you feet are firmly planted on the ground, the wind does not blow directly at you, but can flow around you.
‘Yes, come,’ Jesus said. “So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water toward Jesus. But when he saw the strong wind and the waves, he was terrified and began to sink. ‘Save me, Lord!’ Peter shouted.”
This is the miracle- God is present in every situation or experience in our lives, both good and bad. Jesus immediately reached out and grabbed Peter. “You have so little faith,” Jesus said. “Why did you doubt me?”
This is a given – the wind will eventually settle and the sea of life will calm down.
“And when they got back into the boat the wind died down.”

Prayer Works If You Work It

Prayer works if you work it.
How do I know this?
There is fruit in prayer.
It is during the times of trial and tribulation that one can see the fruit of prayer, and know how far one has come in her/his prayer life.
It is in the daily task of praying that we trust in God to take care of the details.
If this is the day my life changes, questions such as “Am I ready?” “Do I have trust in God?”
There is no choice, only change, and with change the constant in life is prayer.
Jesus says, “Give me your pain of being a spiritual pilgrim during these changing times. Give me your baggage of life and your burdens. I will carry them for you just as I carried my cross.” (30 Messages of Hope, Message #1 Prayer, Page 8)
