Prayers for Ministry

A friend of Oddwalk's, Fr. Ron Meyer, OMI visits rural parishes and attempts renewal programs within them. Orin has helped with one local to St. Louis before. Oddwalk understands what it's like to be "on the road for God" -- Fr Ron writes with this prayer request:

Greetings from the Motel 8 in Meridian, MS ... yes, Mississippi! I'm on
my way (from Lowell) to Texas for a series of Missions ... AND WE NEED

working mostly in Spanish (which I only learned to speak/understand a
month ago after two months in Mexico!) ... and we're being opposed by

prayers of anyone else you might be able to recruit among your many
'ODDWALK' associates) are very important in this effort.

God bless you for supporting us (a team of Oblate Clergy and Laity) as
we go about spreading God's Word, under Mary's care and protected by
the Saints and Angels who enjoy one another in God's presence. Remember
us especially when you find yourself in the presence of the Blessed
Sacrament. We'll return the favor during our daily hour before the

On the Road for God ... about 350 miles East of Houston TX
