TEXT FROM CA SHOOTING: “Pray for Us”
“Father, we pray for the survivors and families of the victims of the mass shooting yesterday at Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino as well as those of the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood Monday. God show mercy, grace and love to them all and heal the emotional and physical trauma. We put the blood of Jesus over the blood of the victims. There’s power in Christ’s blood. And Father, please right whatever is wrong that has allowed this craziness. Expose and thwart future acts of violence.” Amen.
*An Extraordinary Pioneer and a Great Trailblazer Has Gone Home (Charisma news)
Dr. Violet Kiteley, founding Pastor of Shiloh Church in Oakland, went home to be with the Lord on Thanksgiving Day, at age 90 and after 70 years of full time ministry. The service Celebrating her life was last night at Shiloh Church, 3295 School Street, Oakland.
“Sister Violet Kiteley was one of the greatest women pioneers that I have ever met,” said Bishop Bill Hamon. “I was deeply touched by her both on a personal level and one that I could look up to as a forerunner. She will be greatly missed and was a treasure for the body of Christ.” Violet Kiteley was a forerunner in a new sound of prophetically inspired worship that influenced thousands of hungry hearts for decades and with the “laying on of hands and prophetic presbyteries.” http://
Memorial Service For Laura Gschwend
Pastor Dave Gschwend of The Gathering By The Bay wrote, “After over 10 years of battling breast cancer, my bride of 40 years passed away on Sunday, Nov 29th. Such a bright light in my life has gone out. We want to celebrate her life and mourn her passing with a Memorial Service onSaturday, December 12th at 1pm at Santa Cruz Bible Church, 440 Frederick Street, Santa Cruz, CA. Feel free to pass this information to anyone you know who loved Laura and would want to come. Thank you.” — Dave Gschwend, The Gathering By the Bay.
*Prayer & Repentance Can Divert or Lessen Severity of Possible Disaster
Please “judge” this prophetic word concerning an Earthquake striking in the next four weeks in the Bay Area. As Californians, we know that it’s not if, butwhen, will a large quake strike? Don’t Fear but Prepare in the natural & in the spirit. Get quiet before God and see what He will say to you. Prayer and Repentance may mitigate or divert destruction. At the minimum, have water for yourself and perhaps some for others. Where is God’s assignment for you? That will be the safest place to be, even if it’s in the eye of the storm or at the epicenter of a quake. And preach the gospel to the lost.
Also, Stephanie Shoquist, the Regional Director of Bay Area Healing Rooms, shares her thoughts about an earthquake at bottom of page.
