Hello Praying Friends, This has been an awesome day! A great October Saturday for sure! Satisfies the warm weather side of me. I love it! It goes without saying that your prayers provide sustaining strength. Please continue. Over the past few days I have received calls and emails from a number of friends… what a tremendous blessing they have been. Most of them have called me to let me know that they are still praying for my family in regards to Adam’s passing in July. They bring tears, but they are deeply appreciated and part of the Lord’s healing for me and Cheryl. Please continue praying for us. I know that you have your own lives and problems, but your prayers are needed and do not go unnoticed.

Today Cheryl and I attended two Memorial Services. One was for our friend Lee Bowen, and the other was for Gray Payton’s sister, Cynthia. You can pray for these families too… they both would appreciate every prayer we pray. I’m convinced that we often underestimate the power of prayer. We get busy and just work our way past prayer. That’s not good… prayer is more important than we think! 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (KJV) Rejoice evermore. 17 Pray without ceasing. 18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

My message tomorrow is from Matthew 5:3, the Beatitudes. I started this series a couple of weeks ago and I will return to it in the morning. The Beatitudes are a powerful group of blessings from Jesus in His first sermon. I’m looking forward to studying through these chapters in Matthew 5-7. Also, be sure to VOTE! Very important!!!

Enjoy your evening! I look forward to seeing you tomorrow… 9AM & 11AM Worship and 10AM for Bible study. Jesus is Lord! PM <><
