He has delivered us from such a terrible death,
and He will deliver us.
We have put our hope in Him
that He will deliver us again.
~2 Corinthians 1:10 HCSB~
Today, let’s focus our prayers on the faces and names of those who were once more active than they are now, the homebound. Let’s not follow the old saying, “Our of sight, out of mind!”. They are not limited to this quick list I made this morning.
- Othell Williams
- Philip and Annie Bell Harrell
- Evelyn Bridges
- Hazel Smith
- Ed and Jeanette McGehee
- Catherine Yarborough (Kentwood Manor)
- Jimmy Schwartz
- Frances Strickland (Landmark Nursing Home)
- Angie Redmond (Greensburg Nursing Home)
- Lucy Goings (Landmark Nursing Home)
Pray for those graduating from high schools, colleges, and seminaries this month. I’ll not attempt to list them all.
Today is the National Day of Prayer across our nation. Most towns/communities/cities will have a celebration of some sort. If you cannot participate at the set time and location, please set aside some time to have prayer with those at your home or even alone. In Amite, the event will be at the city hall at 11:30 this morning. In Kentwood, the ceremony will begin at noon. Join them if you can.
