                                               PRAYER OF MEDITATION
We are your servants, O Lord. May we do your bidding and follow your example by caring for the needs of others, going out to share your Good News, and working to upbuild and restore what was once torn down and broken. May all our efforts be blessed by you.

Stewardship Thought - Mark 10:29-30 – “Jesus said, ‘Truly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or lands, for my sake and for the gospel, who will not receive a hundredfold now in this time, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions, and in the age to come eternal life.’ ” This is Jesus’ encouragement for every faithful disciple. Let it encourage you today.
