From the Community Lay Director...    Prayer Wanted   Do you remember on your Walk to Emmaus when the clergy person introduced the prayer chart and they explained that the Walk was covered in prayer even before it begun? The fall walks are quickly approaching and they need smothered in prayer. The Emmaus Board and the Lay Directors of those walks have been praying, but we really need community prayers. Please pray not only for the pilgrims that are supposed to be on these Walks, but for the teams as the Walk Lay Directors continue to build them. Pray that God sends more pilgrims so that both of these walks are full.  In Mark 11:23-24 it says,  “Truly I tell you that if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and has no doubt in his heart but believes that it will happen, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”  Anything is possible, but I believe that the power behind things happening starts with prayer. The mountain did not move until it was asked in prayer. But not just speaking words…you have to have faith that it can happen. What about you? What can you do to make mountains move for these pilgrims? It is simple. Start asking God to do so believing that He can!  De Colores!  Susan Bryant  Community Lay Director
