Message from Our Senior Minister
Grace and Peace Be Unto You,
Enjoy a wonderful day today, enjoy a wonderful day today; yes, today’s events are enough to manage, tomorrow’s will take care of themselves so don’t give permission for tomorrow’s anxieties to cause you not to have a wonderful day today.
What about next week? Well, your discouraging thoughts and fears can not change possible possibilities for next week. Suppose in whatever month … Enjoy a wonderful day today!
Our prayer: Lord Jesus Christ, please continue to practice patience with me, as I learn and lean to pray in Jesus Christ’s name. Amen!
With All Faith,

Daily Readings for the week of April 8th
What to Pray: I pray…that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, …that the world may know that thou hast sent me and hast loved them as thou hast loved me…that the love with which thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them. ~ John 17:20-26
But the fruit of the Spirit is … [love]. ~Galatians 5:22
Believers are one in Christ, as He is one with the Father. The love of God rests on them, and can dwell in them. Pray that the power of the Holy Spirit may so work this love in believers, that the world may see and know God’s love in them. Pray much for this.
How to Pray: I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night; ye that make mention of the LORD, do not keep silent and give him no rest. ~ Isaiah 62:6-7a
Study these words until your whole soul is filled with the consciousness: I am appointed as an intercessor. Enter God’s presence in that faith. Study the world’s need with that thought – it is my work to intercede; the Holy Spirit will teach me for what and how. Let it be an abiding consciousness: my great life-work, like Christ’s, is intercession – to pray for believers and those who do not yet know God.
