Friday, January 31, 2020

Good Morning OLA!   Today is Friday, January 31, 2020.  Please stand for our morning prayer as we remember that we are in the presence of God.  

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Let us offer our special intentions for those in need of our prayers.  We especially pray for Mrs. Pigott’s sister Michelle.

Psalms 86:5 - You are forgiving and good, O Lord, abounding in love to all who call on you.

Thoughts on today's verse:  Forgiveness is such a sweet blessing. But God does more than forgive! He cleanses and forgets.

Father, we call to you wanting you to know how important your love and forgiveness are in our lives. Thank you for sending Jesus to show your love and pay the debt of our sins. Help us to live today as your children: May others see our joy and passion, to your glory. In Jesus name we pray…

Our Father, Who art in heaven Hallowed be Thy Name; Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Please remain standing for the Pledge:
I pledge Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which is stands, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Good Morning OLA!   Today is Thursday, January 30, 2020.  Please stand for our morning prayer as we remember that we are in the presence of God.  

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Let us offer our special intentions for those in need of our prayers.  We especially pray for Mrs. Pigott’s sister Michelle.

Ephesians 4:2   Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.

Thoughts on today's verse:  "You mean I have to put up with that!?" There are those folks in life about whom the saying is true: "They are the grit out of which we are to fashion our pearl." But our great example in this challenge is Jesus. Think of what he had to put up with in his 12 disciples. Remember how transformational his patience and gentleness with them was. Can we dare to less?

Give me strength and patience, O God, that I may be as loving, gentle, and patient with others as you have been with me. Through Jesus name we pray…

Our Father, Who art in heaven Hallowed be Thy Name; Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Please remain standing for the Pledge:

Wednesday, January 29, 2020

Good Morning OLA!   Today is Wednesday, January 29, 2020.  Please stand for our morning prayer as we remember that we are in the presence of God.  

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Let us offer our special intentions for those in need of our prayers.  We especially pray for Mrs. Pigott’s sister Michelle.

Mark 9:35 - Sitting down, Jesus called the twelve and said, "If anyone wants to be first, he must be the very last, and the servant of all."

Thoughts on today's verse:  Last? Nobody likes to be last. Jesus reverses the rank. The person who is most important to him is not the person seeking the status and notoriety. The most important person is like Jesus himself: willing to give up rank and status and importance to serve. For Jesus, last means first in service and first in the eyes of God.

Lord Jesus, help us to see those you want us to serve with grace and kindness as we try to be more like you. In Jesus name we pray…

Our Father, Who art in heaven Hallowed be Thy Name; Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Please remain standing for the Pledge:

Good Morning OLA!   Today is Monday, January 27, 2020.  Please stand for our morning prayer as we remember that we are in the presence of God.  

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Let us offer our special intentions for those in need of our prayers.  We especially pray for Mrs. Pigott’s sister Michelle and those in need of our prayers.

Ephesians 6:12-13  Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

Thoughts on today's verse: How often do you forget that we are in a spiritual war?
 Let us remember to simply take up the tools God has given us and stand up to the evil one.

Lord give us confidence that Jesus has already defeated our foe. Help us to stand against evil and remain faithful to you. Through Jesus we pray.

Our Father, Who art in heaven Hallowed be Thy Name; Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
Let us offer our special intentions for those in need of our prayers.

Christ our Teacher, You dwell deep within each of our students:  In those who struggle academically, and in those who exel.  In those who seek attention by acting out, and in those who remain silent and try to hide from notice.  In those surrounded by friends, and in those feeling lonely.  Give us the grace to know your presence in each of them and to respond to their needs as you would to ours.  Through Jesus we pray…

Our Father, Who art in heaven Hallowed be Thy Name; Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Tuesday, January 21, 2020 Morning Announcements


OUR LADY ACADEMY MORNING ANNOUNCEMENTS
Tuesday, January 21, 2020

Good Morning OLA!  Today is Tuesday, January 21, 2020.  Please stand for our morning prayer as we remember that we are in the presence of God.  

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
Let us offer our special intentions for those in need of our prayers.

Galatians 6:7-8   Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit will reap eternal life."

Thoughts on today's verse:  Isn't it incredible how huge trees grow out of tiny seeds! This principle runs throughout all of life. Let us make sure the seeds we sow are the ones we want sprouting up!

O Eternal God, bless the seeds our lives sow so they may bear fruit and bless those we love. Through Jesus we pray.

Our Father, Who art in heaven Hallowed be Thy Name; Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Please remain standing for the Pledge:
I pledge Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which is stands, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Birthdays
Celebrating their birthday today is Claire Wojtowicz.  Happy Birthday Claire!
