    Praise God! Thank you, Lord, for those that came to you with a heart of need. I will continue to pray for my brothers and sisters that have chosen to except our Lord as their shepherd. I pray that they call on You, Lord, in their time of need and shout with thanksgiving in everything. Thank you, Lord. In Jesus’ name I pray and ask these things, amen.
