Philippians 4:6“do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”
Thank you for our many blessings. We thank You for this great country.

We pray for peace abroad and peace at home and let each of us do our part to live peaceably with one another.
Luke 4:40-44 “Now when the sun was setting, all those who had any who were sick with various diseases brought them to him, and he laid his hands on every one of them and healed them. And demons also came out of many, crying, “You are the Son of God!” But he rebuked them and would not allow them to speak, because they knew that he was the Christ. And when it was day, he departed and went into a desolate place. And the people sought him and came to him, and would have kept him from leaving them, but he said to them, “I must preach the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns as well; for I was sent for this purpose.” And he was preaching in the synagogues of Judea.”
Jesus rhythmically alternated between the crowds and solitude. In the deserted place his body and spirit, fatigued by the intensities of ministry, were in prayer, restored and equipped to move back into the stream of healing and preaching.
What provision do you make for prayer in your schedule?
