I have always loved spring because that is when I refresh my plants and choose new ones to try. Fall is a change from the HOT weather of summer. It comes in a strong second choice.

Better than both spring and fall put together is when Jesus comes back and I can live in heaven. Surely God has a beautiful environment for my heavenly home. I wonder….

Dana Hendry requests prayer for one of her daughters, Ferrin Grace, who has been hospitalized and given a number of tests to determine the cause in the change of her health. She’s home now and waiting for test results.

I do not have an update, but assume Clint Smith is making a normal recovery from heart surgery. He’s in Ochsner on Jefferson Blvd,

Many of you know of Louis Ruffino. His home burned last week. He is having some heart procedures. He recently lost his mother and cares for his sister., Rose. Pray for him to feel God’s presence as He walked beside Louis during this stressful and uncertain time. Louis has requested your prayers. May he look up to God during these struggles.

September 30 – I Thessalonians 5: 19-24




Today, let’s focus some of our prayer time on the people of Florida who are recovering from Hurricane Ian and the people of South Carolina as they are visited by the same hurricane as it moves further north.

Thank-you for praying today.
