# 54 - Pray the Sounds You Hear

Sit with your eyes closed and listen for all the sounds around you. Try to make each sound a prayer. For example: if you hear a bird, pray a prayer for creation. If you hear a cough or sneeze, pray for the sick. If you hear a phone, pray for friendship and peace. If you hear trucks, pray for those who work. If you hear your stomach growl, pray for those who don’t have enough to eat. It may take a while for you to actually hear all the sounds around you, so take your time. And also, welcome every interruption as an opportunity for prayer as well. Enjoy your world in prayer.

# 53 - Pray with Charity

“Charity” has two popular meanings. Sometimes it can mean to give financial support to a volunteer organization or persons in need. At other times it can mean to treat people with love and understanding, especially those with whom we might find cause to be critical. To pray with charity requires a) learning to love and genuinely praying beyond our judgments, and b) to contributing to their relief and aid. Thus the charity prayer is a prayer of a changed heart and an open wallet.

Welcome Rev. Russ Melby

We were excited to hear from Rev. Russ Melby who spoke in our churches on Sunday March 22. Russ serves all churches in Iowa as the Regional Director for Church World Service and CROP Walks. He spoke of a postor of an African woman walking in a river with two children in her arms, probably seeking refuge somewhere. He spoke of Matilda, whom he met in Africa, and the brief Christ-centered meeting they and others shared one day. You can listen to his encouraging and informative message at Our Church Video Site.

Click here to meet Russ online. And from there you can follow the links to learn more about the unbelievable needs in poverty areas of the world and how you can be a part of saving lives and saving souls.

Come to church any Sunday. LeRoy at 9:00, Humeston at 10:30. Hear of the work of the Lord. Yield to him. Lift your praise to God.
