Paul's Prayer

Good Morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! I know there is no rejoicing in Orlando because of the horrible terrorist attack. I did not have the TV on before I left for church, therefore, did not know anything about it until Pastor Kevin prayed for the situation and all those affected. It is a sad, situation. Many people still do not know whether their loved ones are alive or not. My heartfelt prayers are with them.

On another note; we had a large group of young people, plus the pastor and his wife, and Youth pastor and wife go off to Detroit today to minister to the people in the inner city. This is an annual event and hopefully, many souls will be saved after hearing about Jesus.

The gathering room at the church is finished and furnished, as is the sitting, reading, browsing room. Many from first service were enjoying coffee and treats at the small tables, and others were browsing through the new books displayed on the new bookshelves. The new carpeting is down and my walker bumps over the unusual pattern.  We had a lot of people in attendance at second service, which is good! God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Ephesians 3:14-23
When I think of the wisdom and scope of God"s
plan, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father,
the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth.
I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources.
he will give you mighty, inner strength through his
Holy Spirit. And I pray that Christ will be more and
more at home in your hearts as you trust in him.
May your roots go down deep into the soil of God's
marvelous love. And may you have the power to
understand, as all God's people should, how wide,
how long,and how deep his love really is. May you
experience the love of Christ , though it is so great
you will never fully understand it. Then you will
be filled with the fullness of life and power that comes
from God.

Now Glory to God! By his mighty power at work within
us, he is able to accomplish infinitely more than we
could ever dare to hope. May he be given glory in the
church and in Christ Jesus through endless ages. Amen

I always give thanks for you , remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!

Love and hugs,
