I had a stroke before I was born and was born with mental and physical problems; including Trencher-Collins Syndrome and my trachea and esophagus were intertwine so while being fed I would spit everything up. Therefore I had major surgery to make me fully functional so I would be able to eat normally.

That was May 14th 1965 at Abington Hospital, Abington PA.

My life started as a challenge and still continues to be one.

I came to the Lord when I was 18 years old in July of 1983 at The Davisville Baptist Church youth group.

After graduating high school I went to a rehabilitation center for some sort of trade which was Clerical/Business courses. This school was H.G.ANDREWS CENTER in JOHNSTOWN PA.

In Johnstown PA. was where I attended my first real Church called JOYFUL NOISE MINISTRIES.

The Church was an offshoot of The Christian Churches that became Pentecostal.

I was Baptized in The Holy Spirit December of 1984 and had a hunger for The Word of God.

I became a student of the Bible learning from The Holy Spirit and from various Churches and ministries.

After graduating I moved back home in 1987 and lived in Warminster PA.

Ever since I became a Christian I was always interested in Christian Music and started booking bands and soloists in 1990 and worked with alot of Churches, ministries and coffee houses.

In 1997 I took over a ministry called CHRISTIAN MUSIC NETWORK and initiated concert outreaches and worked with local music artists and bands.

I try everyday to live and to serve God. My favorite verses are:

KJV 1 Corinthians 10:31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.

KJV Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

Ferguson, Missouri

Tags : 

Dear Father,

Prayers are being lifted up in the St. Louis region and across the nation for the situation in Ferguson, MO.

We ask you tonight to comfort those who grieve and mourn the loss of a friend or loved one. The young man had so much future ahead of him, so many opportunities. We also ask your mercy and compassion to those who are living in fear and remorse tonight because of their involvement with the shooting. We ask your mercy and grace on them regardless of their innocence or guilt.

Lord, wisdom and justice is claimed by voices on both sides of the turmoil. However, you alone know the truth and you will satisfy your own requirements for justice. We pray that the innocent will be exonerated and the guilty will be afforded the grace of forgiveness just like we all need.

May those who are thoughtless, who respond out of pure emotion and hate, be quieted by the voices of those who have your wisdom and the maturity and mindfulness to process the situation with calm reason. May lessons be learned by many in this situation about the need for our society to have good laws, to have citizens devoted to respect those good laws, and for authorities to enforce those good laws with compassion, integrity, and humility.

We ask tonight for special wisdom for the pastors whose churches are located in the heart of the turmoil. May they be instruments of peace, reason, unification, comfort, and wisdom in the community. May this tragedy create new relationships between pastors and those who previously had no interest in church. May the pastors, even those of various faiths and denominations, restore peace to the community. We also ask for your protection of them as their voices may unintentionally incite detractors to bitterness.

Lord, save a youth and a police officer tonight somewhere in the US from a dangerous encounter by protecting them from emotion-driven escalation.

Amen

Rebellious Children

Dear Father,

There are pastors across America today who are dealing with members of their congregation who are having trouble with rebellious children. Perhaps friends or family of the members are having such trouble and the pain of their loved one weighs heavy upon them. The pastors are asked to come to the rescue, to soothe anxious hearts and to provide answers and solutions.

We pray this morning for every pastor in America who, dedicated to you, is struggling with a rebellious child. There is no doubt that such a pastor is, in the very least, distracted from their responsibilities by their children. Such pastors are most likely wrestling with feelings of insecurity, anxiety, fear, shame, or guilt because their home life and the behavior of their children are not setting the preferred example for other members in the church. We ask Lord for your intervention in these conflicts, that you will bring relief and resolution so that the pastors will not be distracted from their service to You and to others. For those pastors who must continue to deal with rebellious children, we ask for you to bestow upon them comfort, perseverance, faith, courage, love, and peace. May they model how to live even as their world is not what they so want it to be.

We ask for you to give those pastors who are ministering to broken families, or their loved ones, special grace and wisdom. Help them to know what to do and what not to do. Help them know what to say and what not to say. Give them great spiritual insights to share and divine appointments to share them at that can breakthrough stubborn conflicts. May the pastors experience miracles as families are restored and lives are rescued from rebellion and all the heartache associated with it.

Amen
