"The LORD sets the prisoners free;
the LORD opens the eyes of the blind.
The LORD lifts up those who are bowed down;
the LORD loves the righteous.
The LORD watches over the sojourners;
he upholds the widow and the fatherless,
but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin.
The LORD will reign forever, your God, O Zion, to all generations.
Praise the Lord!"
I love the Psalms! How they speak to my soul and oftentimes for my soul. Psalm 146:8, in particular, has become my prayer for someone very dear to my heart who "walks in the darkness, and does not know where they are going, because the darkness has blinded their eyes." (1 John 2:11) No doubt, you could add a name or two to the list of loved ones walking in darkness... So, I ask that you would join me in fervent prayer for our lost loved ones.
Would you also take a moment to pray for my sister, Priscilla, who is, along with her husband, seeking to make HIS Name great in Southeast Virginia? Her household is battling the flu and tomorrow (Wednesday) is Bible Study. She has a handful of ladies signed up to attend and at least one of those ladies does not know the Lord. Pray that God would strengthen Priscilla, grant her wisdom and that God would miraculously bring Priscilla's friend to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ!
"Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen."
