Heed me, O LORD, and listen to what my adversaries say. Must good be repaid
with evil that they should dig a pit to take my life?  ~ Jeremiah 18:18-20

Whoever wishes to be great among you shall be your servant; whoever wishes
to be first among you shall be your slave.  ~ Matthew 20:17-28

There are many who delight in chipping away at the reputations of others in
an attempt to make them seem better.  These same people often strive for
privilege, the best seat and more.  Jesus says though, "Whoever wishes to be
great among you shall be your servant; whoever wishes to be first among you
shall be your slave."

I pray that I may not act or speak against any other person.  I pray that I
may live simply and humbly, serving the needs of those around me.  This is
Jesus call.  This is what can lead me to greatness in the eyes of those
around me, and in the eyes of God.

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!

May God Bless you and those you love, and keep you safe!
