Prayer is Special During Advent

St. Dominic, about 800 years ago, preached about nine great ways to take our prayers to God.

  1. Humility (reference 2 Chronicles 7:14)
  2. Worship (ref: Psalm 29:2)
  3. Penance (ref: Acts 2:38)
  4. Contemplate the love of God through the cross (ref: Phillipians 2:10)
  5. Be still and listen to God (ref: 1 Chronicles 16:8)
  6. Intercession (ref: John 14:13-14) Jesus Christ stated, “Whatever you ask in my name, I will do it, that the Father may be glorified in the Son; if you ask anything in my name, I will do it.”
  7. Supplication for wisdom, transfixed (ref: Psalm 103:1) and
  8. Study the Word of God (ref: Acts 3:16)

Christmas / Holiday Tree Lighting 12/2/2016 in Southern County of San Mateo

Eyewitness Report:

    1. it is so cold, parents are telling their kids they will buy them 2 gallons of ice cream and they can keep it outside overnight; it is so cold, Mayor M. Mueller took a piss on one of the undecorated trees and his urine froze BEFORE it hit the trunk of the tree: it is so cold, that former Mayor Catherine “Let them eat cake” Carlton’s nipples froze and then her falsies fell out of her brazeriere; it was so so cold tonight, the reception of the City of Menlo Park Police was warmer than the ambient air temperature in the County of south San County of San Mateo.

      This tree was officially lit up – hundreds of kids were fooled that they were going to push the ON switch – at 6:46:30 p.m. PST in historic Fremont Park. some women thought the tree was decorated with lights better than last (2015) year… they used fewer lights and did not put any at the TOP of one of the main redwood trees which had not been watered for over 6 months and did not receive any tree-surgeon services… go figure… 45 degree heat before 7 p.m., 6 MPH winds, some spiritied non – Christian caroling on-stage… plenty of powdered hot chocolate and a fake Santa Claus breakfast promised in the morning… Merry Christmastime!!! ~ from a warm chair across the street at Peet’s Coffee and Tea Shop #2 ~ Buck Dailey
