I meet you in the place of your deepest need. So come to Me just as you are, leaving pretense and performance behind. You are totally transparent to Me: I know everything about you. Yet because you are My own—redeemed by My blood—I have unlimited, unfailing Love for you. Ask My Spirit to help you be honest and open with Me. Don’t be ashamed of your neediness; instead, use it to connect with Me in humble dependence. Invite Me to have My way in your life. Remember that I am the Potter, and you are the clay. The weakness you bring Me is malleable in My hands, and I use it to mold you according to My will. Your deepest need is to lean on, trust in, and be confident in Me. Accepting your lack of strength helps you lean on Me in unashamed dependence. I am training you to trust Me with all your heart and mind—a lifelong endeavor. And the best way to not be afraid is to have confidence in Me, your Strength.

1.  My prayer is that God will use me to take His light into a dark and sinful world.
2.  We must pray daily for our pastor, church staff, deacons and Sunday School teachers.
3.  May I live each day so that others may see Jesus in me.
4.  My prayer is that God will place His hands on the leaders of our country so that they can know God’s
    will for our country and bring unity to us.
5.  May we remember the work to be done around us and pray for Bryce as he leads the children.
6.  Remember our service men and women, policemen, firemen who place their lives on the line each day.
7.  Remember to pray for our ministries and missions as we carry the gospel to others.
