(Verse of the week)
How can a young person keep his or her way pure? By living according to your word. I seek you with all my heart; Do not let me stray from your commands. I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you. Praise be to you, O Lord; teach me your decrees. . .I rejoice in following your statues as one rejoices in great riches. I meditate on your precepts and consider your ways. I delight in your decrees; I will not neglect your word.
(Psalm 119.9-16 selections)
(Prayer of the week)
Heavenly Father, help me to find your plan and purpose in your Word, and help me to allow it to take root in my heart and life and bear the fruit of a deep and abiding faith and a life that gives you honor and praise. Fill me with your hope and peace and love and joy that I may live a blessed life and be a blessing to others, through your power and to your glory. Amen.
Open your heart to God's amazing love!--Pastor TJ
