Prayer-Links

Here's a video sent in on January 5, 2020 by Classmate Steve Sjordal. It is an uplifting spiritual song done as a father/daughter duo.  Steve has included the words as well.  Click below to view the You Tube Video.
Greetings and a New Year Blessed with His Joy!!
This morning there was again in my office a great flow of emotion as the father/daughter Phelps performed  Water.
Lyrics are provided for enhancement of your experience, as follows:
 
"the desert sun burned hot upon [her] face" because she was drawing water at a time separate from the rest of the women in the village.   She was a shamed outcast with a history of 4 husbands and now living with a man, who is not her husband.  When Jesus says, "I know the life that you have lived..." he speaks the truth, just as He knows what each of us like inside and loves us lavishly anyway!
 
 
 
As the desert sun burned hot upon my face
While drawing water in the middle of the day
Please give me a drink (That stranger's speaking to me)
My child do you think you could spare
Me some water (He must want more than water)

But you have crossed the line between us, me and you
(She is afraid, she is so broken)
Why when you asked me for water like you do
(This is her chance, she's ready now)
Oh but if you only knew (He speaks with so much heart and)
Who it is that speaks to you
You would ask me for water (I wanna know more of this water)

There is a living stream flowing from the deep,
(How can it be free and eternal)
endless and eternal

Drink from the only spring where you take a drink and never thirst again.
(Can it set me free)
Let it set you free.

So this water is a gift that you can give
(Please take it now it costs you nothing)
But if you only knew the life that I have lived
(I know the life that you have lived)
You can be different than before
(But then you took the shame, forgotten)
You can go and sin no more
(So this is how it feels to be forgiven)
My child, be forgiven.

There is a living stream flowing from the deep, endless and eternal
Drink from the only spring where you take a drink and never thirst again.
Let it set you free.
(Let it set you free)

My whole life has been in chains, a prisoner to this world
(My child, now go and tell)
Now at last this living water sets me free
(How at last this living water set you free)

There is a living stream flowing from the deep, endless and eternal
Drink from the only spring where you take a drink and never thirst again.
Let it set you free. (Let it set me free)

Let it set you free. (Let it set me free)
 
 
WHISPERS... This is an awesome message for one's spiritual health.  You will enjoy this video clip. 
 
 
 

 

      Since our 50th Reunion classmates Steve Sjordal and Jerry Warren have been

getting together in Colorado.  They believe that since we are all getting older it

might be helpful for us to have a "prayer line".  The intial thought is to establish

a "prayer-central" person(s) to whom any classmate's concerns about body,

mind, soul, children, grandchildren (or any personal need) would be forwarded. 

There could thereby be a group of classmates, who identify themselves as

being interested in establishing a prayer-link or prayer-chain, to be notified to

intercede for those specific, personal concerns.

      Intially, Steve Sjordal and Jerry Warren will serve as co-prayer-central persons. 

They have updated their personal profile and if you access their page you can send

them a message.

     If you wish to be involved in such a prayer-link group you should bring forward

from this website the personal profile page of either Steve or Jerry and

send them a message that you wish for them to put your name and email address

into a prayer-group data base that they will establish.  The prayer group data base

of those who will be praying will then be assigned prayer requests as Steve and 

Jerry receive them from the class.  Cases where anonimity is requested will be

strictly observed. 

     If this link to our St. Louis Park Website becomes heavily used, we may design an

even more convenient method of transmitting classmate requests for prayers to

those who wish to participate.


November 28, 2017           A LITTLE TALK WITH JESUS

          A little talk with Jesus, how it smooths the rugged road, how it cheers and helps me onward when I faint beneath my load.

          When my heart is crushed with sorrow and my eyes with tears are dim, there is naught can yield me comfort like a little talk with him.

          Though my way is often dreary and my walk is weak and slow, a little talk with Jesus tells me all I need to know.

          And He answers me so gently in a soft and loving tone, "I am with you always and you will never be alone."

          He tells me that He loves me, and paid the ransom for my soul, now He is my brother, His love has made me whole.

          I cannot live without Him, His love is all I know; a little talk with Jesus gives me all I need to grow.

          Oh, I often feel impatient and I mourn His long delay, for I never can be settled while He yet remains away.

          So I wait a little longer for His own appointed time, and I glory in the knowledge that such-hope is ever mine.

          In My Father's perfect dwelling where the many mansions be, I will daily talk with Jesus and He there will talk with me.

                                      "Come unto me all ye that labor

                                      and are heavy laden, and I will

                                      give you rest."  [MATTHEW 11:28]
