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.

LOTTERY TICKETS: We certainly want to thank Mike Sinko for all his efforts in selling the Lottery Tickets for the month of May. Mike placed himself in front of different Food Markets to sell as many as he could. It is very difficult to try to get people to sell the tickets, as a few of our sellers are no longer with us. We thank all those who purchased and sold tickets. Watch your numbers and good luck.

THANKS: The flower beds, etc. look real nice thanks to Anna Magill, Sonya Dempsey, Catherine & Charles Halloway and our good man Dave Youells who also cut down a lot of the growth on the banks.

Also we wish to thank the few women and men who came out to help clean the Hall and to all those who helped with the preparations for the Sviachene Dinner. May God bless you all with good health.
