This Week


FEBRUARY 16th; LORD'S Day (Sunday); 2020. 

THIS WEEK'S HYMN.  “God Will Take Care Of You” by Mrs. Civilla Martin (1866-1948).  On a Sunday afternoon in 1904, Mrs. Martin was confined to a sickbed while her Husband fulfilled a preaching appointment.  When Rev. Martin returned, his Wife gave him the words of this Hymn.  He instantly went to his organ and composed the tune.  That evening, Rev. Martin and two Sunday School Teachers sang the Hymn for the first time.

THIS WEEK'S THANKSGIVING.  There were answers to Prayer this week.  1. A Gentleman's back seems to be improving.  2. A Lady's rash is gone.  3. A Gentleman suffering with pneumonia is better.  4. A Lady's Niece is over her sickness.  5. Several have returned from the Hospital.  Romans 1.8 says: “I thank God through Jesus Christ.”

THIS WEEK'S PRAYERLIST.  These Prayer Requests have been made by different Residents and Staff in the Care Facilities.  1. Several who have pneumonia.  2. Those Care Facilities that are seeking dependable Aides.  3. A Lady in Skilled Care who was hoping to return to her Personal Care Home, but is now disappointed.  She will have to wait a little longer.  4. A Gentleman who has been seriously sick for a month.  5. A Gentleman with serious leg problems.  6. A Lady who received a New Testament last week.  7. A Gentleman recovering from surgery.  8. A Lady in Skilled Care.  9. A Lady in therapy.  10. Those in the Hospital this week.  11. A Gentleman who listed four special requests to Dr. Spence.  Psalm 54.2 says: “Hear my prayer, O God.”  Psalm 55.1 says: “Give ear to my prayer, O God.”  *In the Thanksgiving and Prayerlist sections, the names of the people have been withheld to protect their privacy.  Nevertheless, the Thanksgivings and Prayer Requests are real and actual.  Respect for privacy is also the reason there are usually no photos of Residents on Dr. Spence's website.

THIS WEEK'S COLPORTAGE REPORT.  1. Last week, 247 Printed Sermons and 260 Chaplain Calendars were distributed in local Care Facilities.  2. Is there anyone who could use the King James Version Book of Psalms in Braille?  If you or someone you know could use these Psalms, please contact us.  The Book and postage are free.   


IN THIS WORLD, there often arises temporary situations and unique circumstances.  People necessarily leave their Homes and move into Care Facilities.  Others are confined to their Homes.  Very frequently, these people, spiritually, fall between the cracks.  They are forgotten and forsaken.  For more than 23 years, Dr. Spence has served as a Personal, Domestic, and Care Facility Chaplain meeting the spiritual needs of many of these people.  James 1.27 says: "Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world."  If you have questions or comments, or if you are interested in Dr. Spence's services, please contact us.  Dr. Spence seeks to answer calls here in Southwestern Pennsylvania.  However, he tries to go wherever he is requested.
