"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

Please Remember Our Bishop in Your Prayers

Please remember Bishop Iker and the other orthodox bishops attending the Lambeth Conference in your prayers. I doubt any of them believe they will dissuade the liberals in the Communion from their present destructive path, but it does take great courage to stand up and speak the truth when you know it will not be well received. Also be sure to lift up Dean Ryan Reed and the other orthodox clergy who will be in the "exhibit area" at the Conference to ensure that a faithful witness is carried before the world's press, counteracting the misinformation campaign of the far Left at the Conference.

ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, who alone workest great marvels; Send down upon our faithful Bishops in conference at Canterbury the healthful Spirit of thy grace; and that they may truly please thee, pour upon them the continual dew of thy blessing. Grant this, O Lord, for the honour of our Advocate and Mediator, Jesus Christ. Amen.
