March 2021 Prayer

Father God, thank You for the gift of this new month. Lord God, prepare our minds, hearts and hands for what You have for us this month. Lord God, prepare us for those we will encounter and prepare those who we will encounter for us.

Lord God, help us to grow in love this month. Lord God, may we be reminded it does not matter what gifts, talents, time, abilities and resources we have if we do not use them in love. Lord God, love is the most excellent way. Lord God, You have created each one of Your people differently. May we seek unity in the midst of our diversity. May we use the gifts, talents and resources that You have given us for Your glory.

Lord God, help us to be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to anger. There is so much anger and outrage, even amongst Your people. Lord God, may we seek ways to do good rather than divide. May we look to find common ground with others rather than fault finding. May we be reminded to take out the log in our own eyes before we call out the speck in others.

Lord God, may we be reminded that words have power. Whether they are verbal or written we will all have to give an account for what we have said and thought. Help us to take our thoughts captive, submitting them to Christ.

Lord God, thank You for this reader. Comfort this reader and encourage this reader as only You can. Lord God, thank You that You know how to best deal with each one of Your people. May we seek You today. May we share Jesus with others and in all circumstances may we seek to grow closer to You. May we continue to grow more and more in Christ’s image this month. Thank You Lord for loving us. Thank You Holy Trinity that You are God. Help us to love You and trust You more 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. As we begin a new month I can rejoice in that I am free from pain in my back and elsewhere, also I was reassured by an ultrasound that I do not have cancer. Susan is in good health too at the moment, and managing food well. That is just as well as the NHS hospitals are still tightly locked down. Praise the Lord for His compassion and provision in all things! We appreciate the concern and prayers of many brothers and sisters in Christ, you are precious to us!

  1. Well written and timely, Mandy! Indeed, may GOD touch our hearts to seek unity, find common ground, and do things out of love in CHRIST JESUS. Without love, we will just be a noisy gong. Blessings to you and Nathan!

    1. For whatever reason I can’t respond to your hypocrisy post. I absolutely LOVE the dentist! I have LOVED the dentist since I was little! Everyone I know including my mom and Nathan think I am NUTS for loving to go to the dentist! Nathan hates the dentist more than anything! Your post is a MASSIVE blessing you have no idea!

      1. Oh sorry I deleted that comment since you wrote a later comment that answered my question about the dentist! I think dentist is the only place I don’t really talk to the dentist or staff; usually I try to be friendly and I never noticed it until I saw how Nancy got to know the staff and their kids, and life and I just am wanting to get out of there lol.

    1. I am so sorry, Jimmy! You can delete that post. I didn’t check to see if I was responding on your site or mine! I totally understand that 4 is too long! I got way too ahead of myself thinking “how cool would it be to see themes in each section of the TANAKH?!” culminating with Jesus, Paul and the NT use of OT. Please forgive me, I meant NO disrespect or anything like that!!!!

      1. Oh no its no disrespect sister! I appreciate it a lot actually, its just trying to see how everything fits with also other things we were going to do with the youth group! We were going to also have others in our church teach the kids about various issues including hot topic issues of our time…sometimes I wish we can have two meeting a week with the youth lol. By the way when I comment on here I often do that when the conversation gets longer to help with other blog like yours get more comment and hoping that will help search engines pick up your post and get more views and therefore reach more people….I know, that might seem very random lol

      2. That’s a relief! How cool about the youth!!!!!! This is what I LOVE about what y’all are doing from youth to adults, fully forming believers! The fact that others in your church want to teach youth is INCREDIBLE! I will totally stick with my presentation on the 20th and if possible some time in April. If it’s ok I will just have handouts/powerpoint if that’s ok so you/they will have it if y’all want it!

        That’s so cool about the blog, you are really helping me, seriously! I’m not on social media at all. I don’t do any ads or anything like that. Thank you so much this is the kindest thing ever!!!!! I thought it was a privacy thing!

      3. Aww thanks! I’m still sorting out schedule for April and will get back to you about the second session, I’m hoping it be April 3rd, but I asked someone that date already and seeing if he needs more time so that way if he does, April 3rd will be great…

      1. Doing good! Going to pick up Chinese duck for lunch, take out and it’s a long line. Taught the kids earlier for homeschooling and later will be preparing for Saturday teachings and Sunday!

    1. I am still working on my presentation notes and God willing I will have a powerpoint to send to you for the kids to follow along. I was wondering, would it be acceptable for me to say along the lines, “because the 10 commandments reflect the character and attributes of holy God these commandments are still applicable and are guidelines for the people who believe in Christ by grace through faith.” I am NOT promoting legalism. Keeping the 10 commandments does not save us, but in the SOM Jesus Himself expands the commandments with not being angry, lusting, divorce etc. You know first hand how serious (moral and ethically) the 5th commandment is observed/understood in many cultures today!
      Ultimately, I am trying to give the youth an Intro to OT background, which I wish I would have had at their age, so my mention of the Law is in regards to Hammurabi and the Mosaic Law. Thank you again beyond measure for allowing me this opportunity! While it may not seem like this, I have been pondering, reading, studying, making mental notes, talking things over with friends (including Kent!) and they are eager to read the OT so I am hoping this will stir the youth as well!

  3. We are doing well, thanks for asking! I’m reading Spurgeon this morning and was also doing some stuff with the blog’s Social media account on FB, Twitter and Mewe. Going to be working on tonight’s study and looking forward to seeing you!

  4. Wow I didn’t know about Echo park until you mentioned it! Echo Park is somewhat like Portland in my opinion, that area they are trying to gentrify it for hipsters to live, most being Anglo progressives moving in, but it has their share of homeless but then there’s also a largely first and second generation hard working blue collar Hispanic population that probably is more culturally conservative.

  5. We talked so long today with the three individuals I met up, with good fellowship! Thanks for your prayers! Youth group went well, half weren’t there but they know about next week! Excited!

    1. So glad it went well, praise God! Right now I am leaning toward Jesus fulfilling the sacrifices and the festivals. I don’t know how much I will say on messianic passages but I will include slides for them about it. Do you mind if we do the same set up again where I email you the PowerPoint and then I have you change slides, it helps me be more mindful of time! My two main points I hope they walk away with is that Christians should love the Old Testament because Jesus read it, He lived it and He fulfilled it. The other reason is that when Christians read the Old Testament, they cannot help but love Jesus more.
