"'Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?'  He said to him,
"'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your
soul, and with all your mind.'  This is the greatest and first commandment.
And a second is like it: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'  On
these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.'"  ~Matthew

Happiness cannot be sought directly; it is a by-product of love and service.
Service is a law of our being.  With love in our hearts, there is always
some service to other people.  A life of power and joy and satisfaction is
built on love and service.  Persons who hate or are selfish are going
against the law of their own being.  They are cutting themselves off from
God and other people.  Little acts of love and encouragement, of service and
help, erase the rough places of life and help to make the path smooth.  If
we do these things, we cannot help having our share of happiness.

.=: P R A Y E R   F O R   T H E   D A Y  :=.

I pray that I may give my share of love and service.  I pray that I may not
grow weary in my attempts to do the right thing.

Terry requests prayers for her son and their family as they deal with the
after effects of him taking an overdose. A member requests prayers for her
loved ones who are dealing with some difficult relationship issues, may God
guide them towards the right path. Melva asks prayers for her daughters who
are struggling to be good single mums and are struggling with addictions,
that they get help with their addictions and continue to be good mothers to
their sons.

A member asks for prayers for her son who is expecting his first baby and
Doctors, through amniocentesis, detected that the baby is Hydrocephalic and
has Spina Bifida. Janet asks prayers for her daughter who is 18 and is
struggling with severe chemical addictions since the age of 14. 

Richard in California ask prayers for his deaf and blind 94 year-old father
who broke his hip, that he may be at peace with God.  Brian asks for prayers
for his friend who committed suicide on Monday, for his wife and children,
his mother, his family and many friends.

We pray for unity in our country and that we may build a Culture of Life. We
pray for the safety of our troops, their safe return and their families at
home.  We pray for a deep and profound respect for life, and for the courage
and willingness to stand up for life. We pray for one another, for those who
have asked our prayers and for those who need our prayers the most. Have a
good day!
