(1 John 5:14-15)
(14)This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. (15)And if we know that He hears us – whatever we ask – we know that we have what we asked of Him.
Don’t forget to spend some time on Sunday mornings reading your Bible, praying and studying God’ Word. Sometimes Christians skip the discipline of devotion on Sunday mornings because they will be attending church. Don’t be like the average Christian. Spend that quality alone time with God and remember to pray (intercede) for your pastor, all the people who serve others at your church on Sunday mornings and for unsaved visitors to be invited and to attend your church. Pray that your church would be an example of God’s transforming power to your community.
Stay faithful and hopeful,
Bill (a fellow-laborer)

Sweet Hour of Prayer
By William W. Walford
1. Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of prayer, That calls me from a world of care, And bids me at my Father’s throne Make all my wants and wishes known: In seasons of distress and grief My soul has often found relief And oft escaped the tempter’s snare By they return, sweet hour of prayer.
2. Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of prayer, Thy wings shall my petition bear To Him whose truth and faithfulness Engage the waiting soul to bless: And since He bids me seek His face, Believe His Word, and trust His grace, I’ll cast on Him my every care And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer.
Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you. (1 Peter 5:7)
