He gives strength to the weary

and increases the power of the weak.

Of these promises, the one that is most significant to me is . . . .

Today, let’s focus our prayers on those around us who don’t know Jesus. Let’s focus on one thought, “What more can we do to lead them to Jesus?”


Remember one fact: 100% of the funds you give through your church go directly to missionary work around the world as the missionaries represent us in telling the lost about Jesus. That is my mission thought for the day!
