Rev. Kimberlie Zakarian This month, I attended our community's prayer breakfast at the Crescenta-Canada YMCA. The room was filled with 325 individuals consisting of clergy and families. Ann Martin, KCBS Channel 2 news anchorwoman, was mistress of ceremonies, and John Naber of 1976 Olympics fame was the keynote speaker. My heart was filled with comfort at the fact that people still care about prayer. I surveyed the room, noting families sitting together.

Last week, I was privileged to join the La Crescenta branch of Bahá?ís at the home of Lily and Shahrom Moghbel. The Bahá?í religion is considered to be the youngest of the world?s independent religions. Its founder, Bahá?u?lláh, is considered to be the most recent in the line of ?Messengers of God?; they include Abraham, Moses, Buddha, Christ and Muhammad. In other words, religious history throughout the centuries has manifested itself through a series of divine messengers.

I'm glad to see that the figure of Christ taken from St. James the Less Church has been returned, but it appears that the woman who allegedly took it, Teri Denise Staff, is deeply troubled. I am sure that all the parishioners are saying a prayer of thanks that the statue has been found. But as a Catholic myself, I am also saying a prayer for Ms. Staff. The statue is, after all, just a piece of wood. In Ms. Staff I see the body of the wounded Christ. Hopefully this will not be treated simply as a criminal act, and she will receive the help she needs.

Women from Verdugo Valley Baptist Church met for fellowship Monday evening at Marie Callender's restaurant in Glendale. This first evening get-together was opened in prayer by Pastor Jesse Johnson's wife, Candace, followed by pie and coffee. Items discussed included starting a prayer chain with each attendee filling out her personal prayer requests which were passed on to the next lady to take home and include in her prayers. Lively discussion included getting to know each one better, sharing past experiences of learning about our Lord and Savior, and coping with daily concerns.

Jewish residents sat in prayer all day Thursday for their most sacred holy day, Yom Kippur. "Yom Kippur is important because you make decisions for the upcoming year," said Rega Gerrish, a local resident and attendee of Temple Sinai's services who compared the decisions to a New Year's resolution. "You make promises to yourself and to God." Jews are forbidden to work and must fast on this Day of Atonement, in order to completely focus on prayer without thinking of other concerns.

Christian and Jewish faithful will begin to observe their respective holy days, with observances of Lent, Purim and Passover taking place all over the world. What does the Bible teach us about entering these holy days with a sense of prayer?   Even though Lent represents a specific time frame — the 40 days that Jesus prayed and fasted before his crucifixion, the Bible’s underlying message about preparing for Holy Days is to be consistently in communion with God, to know our Divine Heritage, and to understand that we all belong to One Family in the Kingdom of God. In Matthew 17 of the Holy Bible, Jesus had taken Peter, James and John high on a mountain where his Transfiguration took place and, “His face shone like the sun and his clothes became as white as the light.
