Pray it Off 07/12/2012 Session 10 Kick-Off Diets Don't Work

This Just In: Most Diets Don't Work  By Sally Squireshttp://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A45499-2005Jan3.html

Pray it Off Session 10 Kick-Off, 1400 Calorie Diet & Chief Tecumseh Poem

1400 Calorie Week 1 Combination Meal Plan - http://www.caloriescount.com/week1_1400_combo.aspx#

“So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.
Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none.
When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself. Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision.
When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.”
~ Chief Tecumseh

Pray it Off 06/21/2012 Song - Healed by Nicole Nordeman

Healed  by Nicole Nordeman

Oh, We stutter and we stammer till You save us 
A symphony of chaos till You play us 
Phrases on the pages of unknown 
‘Til You read us into poetry and prose 
We are kept and we are captive till You free us 
Vaguely unimagined ‘til You dream us 
Aimlessly unguided ‘til You lead us home

By Your voice we speak 
By Your strength no longer weak 
We are no longer weak 
And by Your wounds we are healed 
And by Your wounds we are healed
Passed over and passed by until you claim us 
Orphaned and abandoned ‘til you name us 
Hidden and disclosed ‘til you expose our hearts

By your death we live 
It is by your gift that we might give 
That we might give 
And by your wounds we are healed 
And by your wounds we are healed

What kind of love would take your
shame and spill his blood for you 
Save us by His wounds 
By your wounds, we are healed 
By your wounds, we are healed 

What kind of love 
By your wounds, we are healed 
Tell me what kind of love is this 
By your wounds, we are healed.
