Hope When My Family is a Mess
Sunday July 9, 2017
For I have chosen him, so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing what is right and just, so that the Lord will bring about for Abraham what He has promised him. ”

Our Prayer for July
We thank You for the hope You have given us through Your salvation. Because of You, we can know our eternity is secure, and we can live with hope and joy in the midst of any circumstance.
Lord, this summer as we travel and enjoy the outdoors, we ask that You open doors of opportunities for us to have one-minute-longer conversations with those we meet. Give us favour with our neighbours, with strangers, with friends and with family members so that we can go a bit deeper in sharing the truth about Your salvation, our living hope.
Open our mouths to speak without fear, and open the hearts of those around us to hear Your truth and turn towards You. We know that You have asked us to make disciples, so, through the power of Your Holy Spirit, use us to share Your love, truth and
hope with others
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
