For Our Country.

ALMIGHTY God, who hast given us this good land for our heritage; We humbly beseech thee that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of thy favour and glad to do thy will. Bless our land with honourable industry, sound learning, and pure manners. Save us from violence, discord, and confusion; from pride and arrogancy, and from every evil way. Defend our liberties, and fashion into one united people the multitudes brought hither out of many kindreds and tongues. Endue with the spirit of wisdom those to whom in thy Name we entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice and peace at home, and that, through obedience to thy law, we may show forth thy praise among the nations of the earth. In the time of prosperity, fill our hearts with thankfulness, and in the day of trouble, suffer not our trust in thee to fail; all which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayer Attributed to Thomas Jefferson-1928 Book of Common Prayer p. 36.

There will be a special program on emergency preparedness held on April 14th at 7 pm at St. Alban’s Church, 4006 Hermitage Road, Richmond VA 23222.

Representatives from Shelf-Reliance, specialists in food storage and emergency preparedness food products and other sustainment items,  will discuss how to:

**Create your own “Home Store” & always have the food you need

**Set up a “PLANNER” to plan how much food your family needs for a given length of time.

**Fit a monthly “Q” into your food budget to order that food and be ready for any emergency.

We will be discussing the 5 Principles of Preparedness

Being prepared to handle any emergency-short or long term, natural or man-made disasters, such as hurricanes, earthquakes, financial meltdown and escalating crime, snd so forth.

1. Self Reliance

Learn self-reliant skills to take care of as many of your needs on your own as you can. Meet with other like-minded people to do what you cannot do.

2. A Year’s Supply

Food Insurance-(like health and car insurance) having a year’s supply on hand gives peace of mind for any emergency

3. Thrift and Frugality

Challenge yourself to see how to see how little you can survive on. Learn to re-use many things and make items have multiple uses.

4. Independence

Can you become independent of electricity, your employer, government programs, etc? The more you are, the better you will survive a financial breakdown or any other emergency.

5. Industrious

Keep busy learning new skills you may need in the future for yourself or to barter.

Being prepared is nothing new. Our grandparents always had food on hand. It was not normal to not be prepared. People were self reliant, bartered their skills, and relied on themselves to take care of their needs. Only in the past few decades have we become more dependent on someone else supplying our food, health care needs, income, and other necessities.

We hope to see you at this important and informative program.

For Reservations : Please call Fr. Nalls at 804-262-6100 or 202-262-5519 or you can e-mail cnalls@canonlaw.org

On Saturday, December 17, 2011 at 4:00 p.m., St. Alban’s will host a presentation by Mark Dellinger, VA and WV area coordinator for Voice of the Martyrs.  Mark will be speaking about, and asking prayers for, our persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ throughout the world.  Please invite as many as you can to this important and powerful program.

The Voice of the Martyrs is a non-profit, inter-denominational Christian organizationdedicated to assisting the persecuted church worldwide. VOM was founded in 1967 by Pastor Richard Wurmbrand, who was imprisoned 14 years in Communist Romania for his faith in Christ. His wife, Sabina, was imprisoned for three years. In the 1960s, Richard, Sabina, and their son, Mihai, were ransomed out of Romania and came to the United States.

Through their travels, the Wurmbrands spread the message of the atrocities that Christians face in restricted nations, while establishing a network of offices dedicated to assisting the persecuted church. The Voice of the Martyrs continues in this mission around the world today through the following main purposes:

VOM’s ministry is based on Hebrews 13:3:

   Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.


VOM helps Christians who are or have been, persecuted for their involvement in spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ. They provide medical assistance, food, clothing, and other forms of aid.


VOM supports Christians who are willing to invite their fellow men, even their persecutors, to Jesus Christ through faithful deeds of love in a hostile environment. They supply Bibles, literature, radios, and other evangelistic tools.


They encourage persecuted Christians by giving their testimony a voice, informing Christians in the USA to know how to help. VOM believes that the lives and the testimony of persecuted Christians is a vital part of the fellowship of all believers and will challenge and strengthen the faith of Christians everywhere.
