Prayer & Fasting
This is part of the program of the 25th anniversary of the Catholic Charismatic fellowship, called "HalleluJah", which Iwona helped start and lead in Wroclaw, Poland The first day will be kicked off by an outdoor evangelism event in the very center of Wroclaw with concerts, multi-media presentations, games for children, etc.
Six days ago, some friends in Poland took up an offering so that our family would be able to attend. With their donation, I was able to purchase four tickets for Iwona and our three children today! They will be leaving on September 30th.
I am now praying for the funds to come in within five days for my ticket and our expenses. I would like to shoot a documentary of this historic event.
St. Faustina Kowalska reported seeing a merciful Jesus, with beams of red and white light shining from his heart. In her diary, the cloistered mystic described a 1935 vision in which she was told the write down this prayer as protection from divine judgment: "Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world; for the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world."
Some of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy thought the uneducated nun was unstable and the Vatican shunned her writings. But her visions impressed a young priest in nearby Krakow named Father Karol Wojtyla, who rose through the ranks from professor to bishop, archbishop and cardinal. Finally, he became Pope John Paul II.
The Polish pope was a champion of Faustina's "Divine Mercy" devotions. He testified: "The message of Divine Mercy has always been near and dear to me." In a sense, he said, it "forms the image of this pontificate." On April 30, 2000, John Paul II canonized her as St. Faustina.
It was in 1937, a year before she died of tuberculosis, the 32-year-old nun had another apocalyptic vision of Jesus.
She wrote: "As I was praying for Poland, I heard the words: I bear a special love for Poland, and if she will be obedient to My will, I will exalt her in might and holiness. From her will come forth the spark that will prepare the world for My final coming."

vote your conscience
Biden and Pelosi, both Catholics, were asked about their stand on the issue of life at conception during recent TV interviews. Their answers which did not align with the teaching of the Catholic church, prompted a response from US Catholic bishops by publishing Fact sheet on pro-life and Church teaching on abortion.
"Never forget that everything Hitler did in Germany was legal"
This morning, I directed the media at IHOP while Lou Engle shared his testimony and some dreams about the next TheCall meeting in San Diego this November 1st. I was so provoked, I couldn't help but cry and pray. He petitioned us to go on a 40-day fast for the state of California starting September 24. When I returned home, I listened to a Delirious? album named "The Mission Bell". Their song named "Take Off My Shoes" really ministered to me. I am amazed why Jesus would want to wash my feet.
Take Off My Shoes
I’ll take off my shoes, I’m coming in, Untie this rope, I’m staying with him, Love of my life, I’ll live and die, Just for the moments for my king and I.
Why did you call, why did you wait, For someone so guilty, someone so fake. There are no words for my beautiful song, Now I’m in the arms of my beautiful one. Hold me, blow all the pride from my bones, with your fire. Hold me, breathe on this heart made of stone, keep it pure. Hold me, saviour of heaven and earth, King forever. Hold me, love of my life lead me on, Through the fire, lead me on...
I’ll take off this crown and fall at your feet, The secret of joy are the moments we meet. How could a man with all of your fame, Pull me from darkness and call me by name.
So hold me today, as I carry your cross, Into the desert to find who is lost. Look at my hands, they’re still full of faith, God keep them clean till we finish the race.
