Quote & Prayer of the Week

Dear God, no matter how hard I try, I can’t change myself. I keep going back to old habits and mindsets. You are the only one who can change me. So, scary as it might be, I’m asking You to create in me a new heart. Make me more like Jesus. May Your Word be used in my life to transform me. Take away my toxic thoughts and retrain my brain to see what is good, pure, lovely, and worthy of praise. Where I have bad habits, strengthen me to form new ones. Where I feel weak, Lord You are strong.


Loving God we lift up to you…
