The Obedient Christian Prays (Part 2)


By Pastor Ted White
How much time do you spend just talking with God? When do you talk with God? We should speak with Him often and not just when times are hard. Foxhole or jailhouse religion speaks to the issue that when people are in difficult situations, only then do they talk with God. Many times people in this situations say “Oh, if you only get me out of this situation, they I will live for you.” Then, often, the Lord does allow them to get out of a painful situation, but they go their own way and forget what they had said.


We have such a privilege to be able to speak to the One who created all things, who has all knowledge, all power and sustains all things, yes, even the breaths that you take. When we pray we are not to use vain repetitions Jesus said in Matthew 6:7, that is, we are not to say the same thing over and over again thinking we will be heard for the many words said. Then in Matthew 6:9-13 Jesus gave us a model prayer. This prayer, called “The Lord’s Prayer” was given to show us how to pray. Many people just repeat this prayer and don’t even think about what it is saying. But, let’s take a brief look.


• Our Father in heaven - Whose Father? The context shows us He is the disciples’ Father. He is Father to all that have trusted in Jesus alone for salvation.


• Hallowed be Your Name - God’s very character (holiness, purity, righteousness) is tied to His Name just as your character is tied to your name. When someone speaks or thinks your name, they think of your character. God’s very Name is tied to His holiness.
• Thy Kingdom come - It is His kingdom, He is the King, we are His servants. He is the most gracious King one could ever serve.


• Thy will be done - It is His will we are to do, not our own. His will is best and He always has the best in mind for us even when we may not understand circumstances that are troubling to us.


• Give us this day our daily bread - He has promised to supply our daily needs. This does not mean that we get everything we want.


• Forgive us as we forgive others - He will not forgive us if we won’t forgive.


• He keeps us from temptation - We decide if we will follow His lead or do our own thing.


• Deliver us from the evil one - Only He can do this.


So, how often do we talk to Him? Communication shows appreciation.
We have to know Him to talk to Him. Find out how at www.newhopenorthwood.com or call 942-7729 or to find peace with God http://www.billygraham.org/SH_StepsToPeace.asp or http://www.simplysharejesus.com/

 


 

Else Cilley Chapter D.A.R.

The members of the Else Cilley Chapter D.A.R. met for their annual picnic at the Fernald Dairy Farm on Nottingham Square. The hostesses, serving make-your-own-sundaes, in reference to Dairy Products, were Katherine Fernald, her mother, Barbara Fernald, and Lynne Sweet and Norma Perkins.


After calling the meeting to order, Regent Jan Gilman gave the reins to Katherine Fernald, who gave the members a tour and explanation of how a modern-day dairy farm is run. She, her mother and father, and brother, with part-time help; milk about 150 holsteins. They also grow both corn and hay for feed. The cows are housed in free stall barns where they can move around. The calves are raised elsewhere, until old enough to be bred.


After the informative tour, the meeting progressed in the usual manner.


The President General’s message was read from the July/August Newsletter. The National Defense Message from March/April was about “The Mighty Dogs of the Military” - Search Dogs To Find Explosives And I.E.D.s”, written by Robert B. Milner, Jr., Lt. Col. USAF (Ret.).


Copies of this year’s Essay Contest were given out to be distributed to local schools.


The Annual Yard Sale was a success, thanks to the hard work of many members.


The next meeting is at the Nottingham Square Schoolhouse on Wednesday, August 19 at 1:30 p.m.

 


 

Boy Scouts Host Watershed


Tom Lothian, Ranger for WAH-TUT-CA Scout Reservation, welcomed the Northwood Lake Watershed Association to the scout site for their August meeting.


Committee reports of special interest were Water Quality and Lake Hosts. WATER QUALITY: Expanded testing for Phosphorous and E.coli have been done this summer. The Northwood Town Beach has not been closed this year due to high levels of E.coli. An improvement over recent years.


Hopefully, this is a result of increased awareness and no continuous duck feeding near the beach. President, Jim Vaillancourt, stressed the importance of getting the three towns that abut Northwood Lake - Northwood, Epsom and Deerfield - involved in lake water quality issues and to begin a discussion that could lead to consistent run-off and storm water management policies.


LAKE HOST: The first half of the year has been extremely rainy and therefore we are expecting the annual number of boats entering the lake and inspected by the Lake Hosts will decline. The number of inspections is used to provide grant money for the following year. Less grant money is expected for next year. An increase in volunteer hours is necessary to keep coverage at the same level in 2010.


Training for the Lake Host Program is held annually in the Spring at the Concord DES facilities. Please contact Doug Chamberlin, 942-7884, for more information.


A lake wide boat parade will be held July 31, 2010. Northwood Lake has not had a boat parade for several years. It will be a gala event.


The next Northwood Lake Watershed neighborhood meeting will be held at the home of newly elected Director, Marilyn Payne, 107 Lakeshore Drive on Saturday, September 12 at 9am.

Northwood Theatre Workshop To Present The Mouse That Roared


Can the underdog really succeed? Is determination to achieve justice a viable plan? The Ann White Northwood Theatre Workshop will prove both to be true when they present The Mouse That Roared on August 28 and 29 at 7:30 p.m. and August 30 at 2:00 p.m. at the Masonic Hall in Northwood at the intersection of Routes 4 and 202/9.


Directed by Kevin Barrett and Maureen DiOrio, and assisted by Geri Veroneau, the play is a rollicking satiric comedy made famous in 1959 when the late Peter Sellers starred in the movie version. Satirizing the cold war at that time between Russia and the United States, the plot emphasizes the American Superpower’s use of foreign aid to buy friends and keep them away from Russia’s influence. However, the best laid plans of mice and men. . . . .


Cast members with major roles include Michael McCullock, Adi Rule, Christopher Gempp, Kevin Barrett, Bob Boucher, Walter Laux, Katie Makem-Boucher, and Steve Grohosky.


Mary Irons of Strafford is the Scenic Artist, and Geri Veroneau of Salisbury is the Set Designer and Technical Director. Jen Mattson, a senior at Coe Brown Academy, is the Stage Manager. Nancy Hill and Carole Neveux are the costumers.


Tickets, which may be reserved by calling 339-2080, are $12.00, and $10.00 for students and seniors.
