Today

 Please pray for:
 1. Our Alpha marriage course, that the right couples will attend
2. Kids adjusting back into school
3. A Thai friend (age 60) who is now caring for her 46 yr old sister that has a brain aneurysm & only says 1,2,3,4. Please pray for the sisters healing & strength.
4. Teresa & I as we care for the people around us "our neighbours." 

Am challenged today.

...“Ask, and you will receive…” (John 16:24). We complain before God, and sometimes we are apologetic or indifferent to Him, but we actually ask Him for very few things. Yet a child exhibits a magnificent boldness to ask! Our Lord said, “…unless you…become as little children…” (Matthew 18:3). Ask and God will do. Give Jesus Christ the opportunity and the room to work. The problem is that no one will ever do this until he is at his wits’ end. When a person is at his wits’ end, it no longer seems to be a cowardly thing to pray; in fact, it is the only way he can get in touch with the truth and the reality of God Himself. Be yourself before God and present Him with your problems— the very things that have brought you to your wits’ end. But as long as you think you are self-sufficient, you do not need to ask God for anything...
