Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear God, Thank You that You are the holy and righteous judge, and that in Your time You will exercise judgment on the world. Thank You, Lord, for knowing before the foundation of the world what Your plan was, and for carrying it out to perfection at just the right time. Thank You that whoever will come to Jesus will be saved, washed white as snow, and will spend eternity in Your presence, praising and serving You, and that I am one of those people because of Jesus. Thank You for being my Shelter, my Provider, my Refreshment, my Shepherd, my Comfort. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Therefore, since we have this ministry because we were shown mercy, we do not give up. Instead, we have renounced shameful secret things, not walking in deceit or distorting God’s message, but commending ourselves to every person’s conscience in God’s sight by an open display of the truth. – 2 Corinthians 4:1-2 (HCSB)
