When I am faced with difficult times I often need to be reminded that the Lord is my rock and my fortress. As an independent person, I am often prone to rely on my own strength – only to find that I am unable to do that.
When trials and tribulations come I am strengthened by the prayer support and encouragement of others. I am especially appreciative of the love and support of our congregation as I have been through the valley of the shadow of death grieving the untimely loss of my granddaughter.
Are you able to take refuge in God in the midst of your life struggles? Is God your stronghold? How does your faith community support and encourage you? How can we as a faith community be more responsive to the needs of others?
Sometimes our Here I Am, Lord is an awareness that we are standing in the need of prayer. Let us faithfully pray for one another as we share in our faith journey together.
Our website page A Praying People provides an opportunity to list your prayer requests. Please be mindful of confidentiality if you post a prayer concern for another person.
Serving with Grace, Pastor Joyce
