Morning Prayer

God our Father,
As I wake up, I realize that you are ushering in another day, untouched and freshly new. So, as I start this new day, I come to you in Prayer and ask that you will renew my mind and forgive the things I did wrong yesterday. I make a fresh commitment today that I will bring every thought and every imagination into the captivity and obedience of Jesus. Help me to be a branch that abides on the vine, to lean on you and to draw strength from You. 
Today, in the face of all trials, tests, temptations, and tribulations, I will cut to pieces the snare of the enemy by speaking the Word of God, which will cause the enemy to flee from me and I will use my shield of faith to quench all the enemy’s fiery darts. I will pay no attention today to a suffered wrong, and I will take no account of an evil done to me, but will instead walk in love, seek peace and conduct myself in a manner that is pleasing to You.
Give me the wisdom and guidance and understanding today to be a Godly example to others, to reach out and help someone today, and to share Your Word with someone today, thus planting seeds that will someday bring a lost one to You, Father.

Finally, I ask You to fill me with Your Holy Spirit, as I go forth.

In the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

BUILDING FUND: Donation made to the Building/Improvement Fund was received by Paul & Marion Rose. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

OFFICE COPIER: Our Parish office is in dire need of a new copier. The copier is used for all the bulletin print outs, financial reports, etc. We are looking into prices for a new or a good used machine. If anyone would like to donate to this cause, it would be sincerely appreciated. Further information will follow as we receive it.
