1) Preparation and Prayer

Good morning! Please read this Psalm as a prayer over you and your loved ones.

Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence?
If I ascend to heaven, You are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, You are there!
If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me.
If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light about me be night,”
even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is bright as the day, for darkness is as light with You.

Amen 

Psalm 139:7-12
