Dear Father, for Jesus’ sake You have declared us Your children. Root out of us unbelief. Cast down our pride. Turn thankless hearts into lives that trust and praise you always. In times of distress, affliction, and difficulty, let Your Holy Spirit work in us through the Word so that our confidence in Your goodness and grace will never fail. In times of prosperity, lift our eyes to look to You and confess You as the Giver of every good and perfect gift. Make us to behold Jesus, Your Son, in true faith to see His death as the ransom payment for our sin and His resurrection as our victory over death for eternal life. Amen 

‚ÄúBehold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a maidservant to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the LORD our God, till He has mercy upon us‚ÄĚ (Psalm 123:2).¬†

About the Cover:   Jesus sent His disciples both with His authority to proclaim the kingdom of God. However, for those rejecting the kingdom and insisting on clinging to sin and judgment, not even the dust should cling to the disciples’ sandals.  Christ has already taken the judgment of the whole world’s sin, even the sin of those who reject Him, upon Himself on the cross.  But by the gift of faith, we cling only in His promises and receive the benefits of what He has done.
EPISTLE - II Corinthians 12:1-10
