You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over. Psalm 23:5

That the God of our Lord Jesus…may give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe. Eph 1:17-19

Dear Friends,

   It’s been a full week of ministry through Come Rest and a full week of praying and caring for our family while we anticipate the birth of little Mary Elizabeth.

   In preparing for our full house Day Retreat yesterday, we heard the Lord, “Pout it on. I want them to rest and receive from Me as I pour out My love and oil upon them.” He laid out the following scriptures for the retreat: Ps 17:8; Ps 23; Is 41:12; Ps 37:23-24,37; Ps 61:2; Josh 1:9. Set aside some uninterrupted time soon. Read each verse slowly. Let Him pout it on. Rest and receive. Several things may happen. One thing for sure. Reassurance.

   We are meditating upon Ephesians 1. He just lifts me beyond worry into wonder; and quiets me down in wisdom. He also puts a “sword” in my hand as I have begun daily praying wisdom and revelation (vs 15-23) for my children, grandchildren, my wife, myself, all of you, and the whole body of Christ worldwide. Come up and take the land, indeed!


    We ask your prayers as our daughter-in-law Beth and son Daniel expect the birth of their first child any day now! Also, prayers for our daughter Emily and son-in-law David as they expect the birth of their sixth child around June 1st! We also ask your continued prayers for faith, healing, and miracles for Kim’s nephew Nick and Dick’s cousin Kathy—both battling threatening cancer. We declare victory in Jesus!


  Our Awakening of Love worship and intercession gathering will be TOMORROW Friday, April 19th, 630-830, Christian Life Church! 2808 Schaeffer Dr SW. Miriam Bandfield will minister musically alongside the Speights and Come Rest intercessors. Come Holy Spirit!


   Our April Day Retreat was a full house, so deep with Him pouring out such love! Our May Day Retreat will be the 15th,  845-4PM. Dick’s teaching, Kim’s tasty lunch, quiet times, new & old friends! Apply soon at!


Our Sunday groups tentatively meet here the 21st 830AM & 630PM, depending on arrival of our grandchild & her parents’ needs. Check website updates.


As we anticipate a fruitful new season of life and ministry, Kim and I have decided to upgrade cars. Our old car has been such a blessing for nine years, since the Lord led us to purchase it through our son Daniel who continues a successful career at Key Auto Mall in Moline. Now we’ve been led again to the right car through Daniel, who found us a great deal on an all-wheel drive vehicle. So we are privately selling our 2015 Chrysler 200C for $9,500. It is just under 96K miles, front wheel drive. If you know anyone who needs a car in that price range, they can contact us through the website.  Our old car is affectionately named “Rocket Car” by our grandkids, because they and Grandpa have taken many “missions” to the moon for exploration and battles with moon monsters. 😊 Now it’s time for “Rocket Car 2”. Whether or not someone you know is interested in “Rocket Car One”, always remember Daniel Speight(319-389-7522) is available to you for new car sales/leasing and used car sales. Just a little pitch for our son, a faithful man of God.😊


We SO appreciate your seeds by mail, the new website, Venmo @ComeRest or QR Code; or PayPal @ “Now may He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness, while you are enriched in everything for all liberality, which causes thanksgiving through us to God. 2 Cor 9:10-11
