It is with a thankful heart that I send this. I previously asked for prayer for my husband regarding work as he had been retrenched and while he hasn’t found any job security, the power of prayer is certainly at play in his life – I must thank you and your team and give all praise and glory to God 🙏🏼

Receive Jesus as Lord and Savior.
Admit your a sinner and you need Jesus to forgive sins and to come into your heart.

Dear Shirley, my heart goes out to you. I don’t know why you don’t feel God in your life. He IS there, right beside you!I will pray that God reveals himself to you and that you see Him. Pray this also. Ask God to reveal himself to you too. Keep seeking Him for the truth is- YOU WILL FIND HIM.God Bless and much love Rosemary.

Dear Shirley Jenner, Hunny, go outside and take a deep breath of air, that’s a small but powerful gift from God, to breathe the fresh air! Now that Spring is here…depending where you live, take notice of the little shoots coming through the ground…soon they’ll be beautiful crocus’, daffodil, or tulips🌷 that are not possible without God. Holding a brand new baby of your own or some one else’s, that’s a Beautiful sign of a gift from God!! Try and take time each day, and spend some quiet time with God, no TV, Radio, or noise of any kind on,… Read more »

Hi Steve
We had a time of prayer in another location and the crucifix was moved to there. We record in other locations different Messages and various items are moved around accordingly. We are just about to record a night of prayer both of Worship and for needs. It will be sent out in the next couple of weeks. If you watch the back ground where the Devotionals are currently being recorded various books and items are moved very often.
God bless
Bruce

Thank you Bruce and your team for this scripture reading. I believe you when you said that God talks to you, cause one morning I woke up saying the Lord is my Shepard over and over, and a voice kept on saying Psalm 112. So in the morning I read the Psalm 112 and looked up where I could find the Lord is my Shepard. I found it in Psalm 23. I read it every day so I could try and understand the message God send me. I know understand it clearly after listening to you today. Thanks so much… Read more »

Gloria, that’s wonderful that you received that message from God!!
“All Glory Praise and Honor” just popped into my head! I haven’t sung that song in a while!!
Thanks for your letter…The Lord is my Shepherd, was my Mom’s favorite psalm! She had a bracelet she wore that had the symbols for the words of the psalm!!

God Bless, Gloria!🙏🏼

Bruce A couple of things at a party I met a Baptist lady nurse says she listen to you on her way to work every day. Then a friend of ours a Atheist ask me this, When did the first Bible get written Yesterday I was in a discussion with a Atheist about my beliefs, he said did you know nothing was ever written about Jesus until 60 years after he was dead. This guy is a wonderful man would do anything to help anyone. His wife is a Vietnaminez Catholic and she makes him go to church with her.… Read more »

Today you talked about “stirrings” within you, and I have been feeling “stirrings” in my own life. I have had thoughts (that surfaced during our recent Parish Synod conversations) recalling Parish Missions that years ago were common programs for group reflections. How wonderful it would be to have you and your team visit our parish and present a 3-4 day Mission on Developing a personal Relationship with Jesus – but – the reality is that we live on opposite sides of the world (Canada), and the funds required to offer a program like this would be unrealistic. Could a prepared… Read more »

Hello Judy Thanks for your email. Years ago when I first was asked by an Archbishop if I would give Parish Missions, it was the furtherest thing from my mind. I didn’t know how from a content, format, logistics or financial point of view, but God did. What started just locally spread by word of mouth from Parish to Parish thousands of miles or kilometers away. The Lord made it all possible. I eventually spent time in the US working out with our team how to improve the Parish Missions. Up until Covid began I spent more than half of… Read more »

Dear Bruce, In 1990 when I was DRE at Divine Child Church and Elementary and High schools, My team and I were able to get a wonderful visit with Tony Melendez who sings and plays the guitar with his feet. He was born without arms because his mom took thalidomide during her pregnancy. He made such an impact on the students with his Love and faith in God our Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ! His brother traveled with him…Tony told the story how because of his disability, they wouldn’t let him become a priest. That was disappointing for Tony,… Read more »

Bruce, The Holy Spirit book that you put on here is just AWESOME. I can not tell you how many times I have reread that book. I read only four pages a day with all my other prayers that I say daily. Each time I get different meaning from it. WOW !!!! I thank you everyday for putting that little book on here. Everyone should get this book. Just Awesome. Thank you!!!!!
