1) Preparation and Prayer

Good morning! How are you doing? Are you able to keep on clinging onto God in these uncertain times? If you struggle, please don’t struggle alone. Let me know!

Read the following Psalm as a prayer in preparing your heart for meeting with God.

Psalm 32:8–11 (ESV)
32:8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.
32:9 Be not like a horse or a mule, without understanding, which must be curbed with bit and bridle, or it will not stay near you.
32:10 Many are the sorrows of the wicked, but steadfast love surrounds the one who trusts in the LORD.
32:11 Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, O righteous, and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!

    • I’m hearing some wonderful right-hand-doesn’t-know-what-the-left-hand-is-doing blessings that some of you are bestowing on other people. May God inspire you to reach more people with his love. The month is almost at an end, so go big! And hopefully your acts of love will not end when the month ends, but that you’ll continue being the hands and feet of Jesus to those around you.

May the LORD bless you
