November 2020 Prayer

Photo taken by Mandy Sweigart-Quinn

Father God, praise You that You are God and You are in control. Praise You Lord that You know what we will face. Praise You for knowing our needs and how to meet them!

Lord God, prepare all people who will be affected by the USA election. Thank You Jesus that You are King and that no earthly ruler will EVER replace You. Lord God, help us to be calm citizens on this earth looking forward to Your kingdom that is coming!

Lord God, thank You and praise You that You are sovereign over the weather. Lord God, be with Your people who are in the path of wildfires, hurricanes, typhoons, blizzards.

Lord God, help us to trust You more this month! Help us to dig into Your Word and delight in You. Praise You Jesus for giving Your people a new identity and position. May we live in a manner that honors and pleases You. May we bring You glory this month. May we desire what You desire more this month. May we choose to love even when it is hard and difficult.

Help my heart Lord to honor You and others with my words. Oh how short I fall on this! Lead us Lord. Guide us. Stir our hearts to prayer and praise. May we be reminded that praise changes our focus from looking at what’s in front of us to You and who You are. May we meditate on Your Greatness and emulate Your Goodness. Praise You Lord for this reader! Praise You Lord for Your love and care for us.

Holy Trinity, Father, Son, Spirit thank You for Your Greatness, Goodness and Presence in our lives. May we be known for our love for You and others this month. In Jesus’s Name I pray. 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. Thank you for this good November prayer, Mandy! Yup, despite all of the political turmoil and the other challenging temporal circumstances, our King is on His throne! Have a blessed month!

  2. Mandy aww thanks for the offer to help! The idea of printing and saving the Word doc list and checking them is a good idea. Actually I think going off tangent from that Idea I need to put all the contradictions cut and paste from the posts and put it on a word doc in case somehow my WordPress accidently gets deleted, you know phones being on in one’s pocket and pushing all kinds of button unknowingly, etc.
    I think you don’t need to make a list for me as nowadays what I do is open up the list from SAB and look at them while searching the titles in my compiled list of ones I did here:
    In the future maybe next year I might need you help with proof reading especially with my grammar maybe we can work something out later after 2020 lol.
    I think with everything going on I’m praying a lot for and when I see it on the news it reminds me you live there! You probably know I’m praying a lot with the elections (among other things too)

    1. I really have nothing going on right now. I have no problem putting your urls on a word doc for you. Anytime I am willing to help with proofreading! As of now Wells has 562 “contradictions” is this a closed “canon” or will he add more?

      I am also praying. I mean I really have no idea what outlet to read or watch. What I keep telling myself is that Truth is a Person and His Name is Jesus.

  3. Amen to your prayer and thanks for sharing Mandy.

    I liked it when you said “Lord God, help us to be calm citizens on this earth looking forward to Your kingdom that is coming!” Something to think about that’s for sure, and not with just election. (I am not in America).

  4. Answering your comment: Yes I have read that book by John Frame! I recommend the larger volume than the smaller one that I reviewed today (yesterday by the time you read it). My review of Frame’s History of Western Philosophy and Theology can be found here:
    My offer still stand if you want me to order it as a gift!

  5. Sorry to hear of the hard storms in PA! I visited a Marine buddy and we had a good time recollecting things and also had lunch and watch some movies. I needed a little break ministry has been crazy since Saturday, there’s a lot of concern and battles people are going through

  6. Answering your comment: Wow 10 years cage stage is a long time, that’s become age stage if one don’t switch to sage stage!

  7. Answering your question: I’m sure I will love that Christian classic! Things are calm in our area we didn’t go anywhere today after service and just stayed home and played with legos since the kids said they haven’t done that with daddy for some time now (with legos).

  8. Answering your questions: We use Zoom for the movie night! WE did this only twice, the last time we had problem since we realize now Amazon don’t allow streaming over zoom and the screen is blank. So we haven’t planned another one yet and will probably rent something on YOutube since Youtube still works, maybe something for Christmas time.
    Concerning Systematic Theology my favorite are things by John Frame especially his 4 part Theology of Lordship series. Berkhof is old school but still helpful, and for that Saturday study that book was picked by the guys instead of myself and I thought it be a good opportunity for myself to go over that book which I have not finished before.
    Over the years Mandy I’ve become more a fan of biblical theology and things elated to OT Studies, NT studies, etc., and I try to incorporate more insight from those disciplines to even shape how I do and how I teach systematic theology!
    I’m not at home right now but will keep an eye out for the book! Thank you once more!

  9. Oh Mandy, this prayer is beautiful. And so needed right now!!

    I’m sorry I did not see this back when it was posted. I follow too many blogs. But I don’t like ‘unfollowing’, if you know what I mean.

    I hope this comment posts. Lately, I have been having all kinds of problems with WordPress. I tried to ‘like’ this post just now, but my like did not register. Please know that I like this a lot! ❤❤❤

    1. I have received your comment! Thank you, Linda Lee! I have no clue about why the “like” didn’t work. Your blog helped me immensely with who to contact about comments! I really praise God for that otherwise I would not be having much communication on WordPress. Thank you for your encouragement and time!!! Lots of love and blessings to you!!!

  10. Hey Mandy! Answering your question in our conversation: Our five youth in our youth group range from 12, 14, 15, 16 and 17. There are outwardly “good kids” who do well in school and pastorally in shepherding them what they talk to me about and also ask for prayer request is school related in their focus (kind of the Asian stereotype, I know). They are respectful but they can get very quiet. We still haven’t convinced our youth to turn on their camera for Zoom…but I count it a blessing they started attending weekly, so I count my blessings and realize as a leader I don’t get all I want lol

    1. Please don’t take this the wrong way, I praise God there are young folk who care about education in the US regardless of race or ethnicity. Where I live we graduate functional illiterates. These kids can badly read, write or do math. I am an English person so math really isn’t my gift (I helped my Japanese friends with English and in return they helped me with math! That’s not meant to be a stereotype but on people working together!!). If I may ask, are you first gen American?

      1. I had no clue there were such different breakdowns! Thank God you are not offended! I was seriously concerned! I have always loved accents and in today’s PC culture I get nervous asking someone where their accent is from lest I am called xenophobic or something like that!
