        Meanwhile let the sinner continue sinning, and the unclean continue to be unclean; let the upright continue in his uprightness, and those who are holy continue to be holy. Look, I am coming soon, and my reward is with me, to repay everyone as their deeds deserve. (Rev. 22:11-12)

  • A Letter From God

    Author Unknown

        Good morning,
        As you got up I watched and hoped you would talk to me. Just a few words, such as thanking me for something good in your life yesterday or last week would do.
        But I noticed you were busy selecting the right clothes for work. I waited again to hear from you. When you ran around the house collecting papers, I knew there would be a few minutes to stop and say hello, but you never slowed down.

        Scripture is filled with help for those who have ears to hear. One of the many helpful passages is this one: “And as well as this, the Spirit too comes to help us in our weakness, for, when we do not know how to pray properly, then the Spirit personally makes our petitions for us in groans that cannot be put into words; and he who can see into all hearts knows what the Spirit means because the prayers that the Spirit makes for God’s holy people are always in accordance with the mind of God.” (Rom. 8:26-27)

  • Father’s Day Prayer

    By Joanna Fuchs

    Lord, please bless our fathers,
    these men who mean so much to us,
    who are greatly responsible
    for who we are and who we are becoming.
    Bless them for having the courage
    to do what’s necessary to keep us out of trouble,
    for making us do the right thing,
    for helping us build our character,
    even when it makes us angry;
    and bless them for pushing us to do our best,
    even when they just want to love us.
