90 is the total of all prayers offered in the past. 17 is the number of current prayers. They expire according to the designation of the people who post them.

Thank you for your faithfulness in praying! For anyone else wanting to participate in this prayer ministry, scroll down to the prayer board link, below.

4) Bible Verse in Eggs?

a few [weeks] ago someone said they took plastic Easter eggs with a piece of paper in it with a bible verse on it a piece of candy and [gave] it to the people in the neighborhood. I was wondering what bible verse they used. 
thanks wanda

--from SSTN: there are many you could use, here are two suggestions: 
Jesus said..."I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die." John 11:25-26

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." John 3:16-17

5) Women's Group

I have this suggestion for the church women group mentioned in issue #11.

How about church women getting together with the vision of being deliverers, judges, workers in the ministry of reconciliation?

They could talk about what that might be like and how it might be done and then ask the pastor if it's a good idea and if it should be done.

A deliverer like Deborah in the book of Judges was one who people could go to for any matter among them if there was any oppression. A deliverer could hear the matters at hand to see what is right, giving diligence to search out a matter to see if indeed it is so, not judging by what they hear but what is true and honest and what can be verified.

She could go with anyone who had a matter with another who has gone to that one first but have not been heard. Such a one could state their case, the thing that causes any present distress. If that one is willing to forgive and to repent of their sins as they become known to them, then with mercy as their companion, the holy spirit as their guide, and Jesus as their judge (deliverer) they can go together, not preferring one person over another, nor using condemnation, pride, jealousy, lust, envy, covetousness, unrighteous judgment, faultfinding, etc. (nor being willing to be used by them, but willing rather to be used by the Lord)

They could judge actions and ask "Is such a thing right?" and upon finding it to be wrong, the plea can be made, "Please have mercy." This could be done without any judgment of the flesh if they truly desire to pursue patience, mercy, discretion, righteousness, self control, honesty, etc.

The goal is to relieve any PRESENT Distress, and reconcile by the message of the cross of Jesus. Once a sin or fault has been repented of and the one asks for forgiveness, then it is illegal to use that fault or sin against that one as it is now under the blood of Jesus where it can no longer be seen, unless it should ever show itself again, but for now it becomes lost in a sea of forgetfulness where it has no authority anymore, because it is past and though God was once with them there in it but not of it, he is now in the present and moving with them into their future with him.

If people have trouble with their past and can't seem to see past it, the "Deborah" or deliverer may speak of the future. For example:

In the future church there will not be any darkness. The light of God will be for all to see and we will enjoy his glory in Christ Jesus. In the future your relationship with Christ as your light will be much brighter than today. In the future your pains will be gone, your faith will be stronger, and your knowledge of God more secure...etc.

These women could go with their husbands to minister once they have the same vision for ministry. Once the present distress has been handled, there will be relief and reconciliation should follow, the path should shine ahead and become more clear, and they in turn can learn to do the same for others, ministering as they have been ministered to, giving praise to God along the way, for it is he who gives us all that we need to overcome by Jesus Christ.


6) Palm Frond Cross?

I have a copy of a publication, I believe it was in the Naples (Florida) Daily News, on how to make a Cross from a Palm frond. My article is old and tattered. Is there a place I can go on the internet and find a better copy to show our 6th grade class, here at St. Leo's Catholic Church in Bonita Springs, how to make a beautiful cross out of the palm frond?


--from SSTN: Hi Barbara,
There sure is. You'll find the link on the following page:
