Prayer Guide – October 2022
Now when a man works, his wages are not credited to him as a gift, but
as an obligation. However, to the man who does not work but trusts
God who justifi es the wicked, his faith is credited as righteousness,
(Roman4:4-5). We aren’t saved by works. It is Jesus Christ who saves
us, not our feeling or actions. He is the only one strong enough to
save us no matter how weak our faith is.

My phone rang just after five o’clock. I was still in bed and I figured I’d get it when I got up in a few minutes. Sometimes one of my brothers will call early so I didn’t worry about it. About five minutes later my phone rang again. By the time I was able to get downstairs to answer, it was too late. I saw the calls were from two different brothers. At that early hour, that can’t be good.

Recently, I was reading a story in a newspaper publication on why the Dairy Breakfast was canceled this past June in Lafayette County, Wisconsin. What caught my attention was the headline: “Road disrepair dead ends dairy breakfast”. The article said that the dairy breakfast “organizers decided that a spate of road and bridge repairs would make it difficult for people to even get to the June 11 event.

My day started early yesterday and ended late, but it couldn’t have ended better. A young man who was visiting our church with some friends, came to Bible study, heard the message of God from the Bible, and decided he’d rather go to heaven than hell, so he committed his life to Jesus before he went home. We ended up standing around in the kitchen at church, talking about eternity, man, sin, and angels and what God expects from us and he decided he wanted to ask Jesus into his heart. So he prayed and did just that! The day couldn’t have ended better. God is good all the time.

brought you up out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. I snatched

My wife and I were working on a home improvement project and needed to rent a certain piece of equipment that would spray and scrub concrete and then suck up the gray water. We checked all the local rentals but none of them carried this particular tool. So we had to expand our horizons. We found one an hour and twenty minutes away in Madison, Wisconsin which meant we’d have to pick it up, use it, and get it back in 24 hours – or pay for two days. I love a good challenge.

Last week my wife and I took a trip to Nashville, Tennessee to visit our daughter and son-in-law. It used to be when we traveled, we hit the pavement with the tires squealing and we didn’t slow down until we got there. That meant not stopping along the way unless we absolutely had to. It still is that way in a sense, but not quite as intense.
