Father God, thank You for this new month! Lord God, thank You that You are in control. Lord God, thank You that You know our needs even more than we do. Lord, I ask that You strengthen this reader. Lord God, I ask that You meet the physical, financial, emotional, mental and spiritual needs of this reader. Lord God, thank You that You provide for us even when we do not see or feel it. Lord God, help us to become more like Jesus.

Father God, I ask that You give all nations and governments wisdom when it comes to how they handle COVID-19. Lord God, be with all people who are working day and night to serve and help others in this time. Lord God, may all people everywhere, exercise wisdom and common sense when it comes to being out in public. Lord God, helps us to be agents of peace and patience. Lord God, help us to draw closer to You. Teach us to discern Your Truth from all the lies and fear that are bombarding us.

Lord God, I specifically pray for East Africa. Lord God, be merciful on our East African brothers and sisters as they deal with the coronavirus and locusts. Lord God, impress on Your people, for those who have abundance, to consider the plight of those all over the world, even and perhaps in their own backyard who are suffering.

Lord God, teach us to value the things that You value. Teach us to love how You love. In all things may we seek to bring You glory. Thank You Jesus for the ability to pray in Your Name. Holy Spirit, lead us and guide us this day and in this new month. Triune God, thank You for who You are and for all the ways that You are working. Amen.

Blue Collar Theologian

My name is Mandy Sweigart-Quinn, I live in Lancaster, PA and I am a “Blue Collar Theologian.” I love Jesus! I am passionate about His Word (The Holy Bible)! I come alive when I can encourage others in their walk with Jesus (whether by writing or speaking). As a “Blue Collar Theologian” it is my aim to live/practice/work out my Christian hope with sincerity, authenticity and genuineness. As a “Blue Collar Theologian,” I strive to meet people right where they are (“Incarnational Theology”). I graduated in May 2019 from Capital Seminary and Graduate School with a Master's in Biblical Studies. I am a passionate, excited and enthusiastic person! I love flowers, sports and sunsets. Since January 2, 2018 I have had the privilege of being married to Nathan.

  1. Hi Mandy !
    Thanks for this heartfelt prayer, and thanks especially for mentioning our brothers and sisters in East Africa dealing with the locusts, and possible famine.
    Let’s continue to unite in prayer asking for God’s mercy. 🤗

    1. Hi, Sally!! Thank you so much for praying along with me! I have been loving your blog posts! If you login to WordPress online rather than using the app, I have left you comments that I think are in your spam folder! Love and blessings!!!

      1. I love you for asking. I have a vague inkling on how Jesus must have felt when everyone was crowding him for healing. I felt pulled in many directions trying to help my clients file for new loan programs through our county and city. I’m taking a nap today!

      2. Hey! I hope you had a great nap! I’m so glad your state is open so clients can come see you in person, yea God!!! I appreciate your sentiment about Jesus being pulled in many directions for healing, I know I do not respond well when I am pulled in too many directions. I am so thankful for you! Lots of love, hugs and blessings!!!

  3. Concerning your comment on my post: Wow I’m glad you do pay attention to endnotes as it makes my effort not in vain. Actually the reason why I footnote things in my sermon prep is I think it is import for godly intergrity and also in the future if I need to back to reinvestigate something I can trace where I got my idea and the arguments made there, etc. I think I will write a post on footnotes and God sometime as a result of your comment!

    1. Seriously, Jim, please do! God hates plagiarism hence do not add or take away from His Word! I love endnotes and footnotes as I can look for resources quickly. We should give people credit for what they write and integrity is part of godliness. There is also a thing called self-plagiarism where a person quotes themselves from a former writing without citing the information.
