i am so discouraged. Financial problems, work stress, grief and loneliness. i pray to feel a renewed sense of God in Christ within me and beside me as I face these challenges in 2016. I don't know if things will get "better" this year, but when I feel the Presence very near me I know I am not doing this all alone.

May the world see in us this year, a ray of Hope that is Empowered by Gods Grace. Lord Christ may we be humble in your presence, acknowledging all our shortcomings and faults. Heal us where there is division, give us compassion where there is judgement and hatred, grant us wisdom where there is ignorance and forgive us when there is pride. Give us O God the spirit of forgiveness as others seek to hurt us. May we be practical, yet loving and intentional in our faith. Let us never forget that it is your grace that sustains us throughout our own lives. May the Holy Spirit lead us forward on our journey of hope...this season.
