Quote & Prayer of the Week

The world would have you agree with its dismal dream of limitation. But the light would have you soar like the eagle of your sacred visions. – Alan Cohen


Our God, I come before You today seeking Your divine guidance to enhance my wisdom and discernment.  As the light of the world, Jesus brings hope and shines Your holy light upon us.  I ask that You illuminate my path, pushing away darkness and fear from my life.  Allow Your word to guide me in faith as I walk in truth, bringing glory to Your name.  Envelop me in Your love and protection, so that even when I feel defeated, I know You are there with me.


Loving God we lift up to you…
