Pray for the United States

My Dear and Precious Online Church Family: 
 
In this frightening days in our  beloved United States we need to take time to pray for peace as we prepare our hearts, lives and nation for President Elect Biden’s inauguration.
 
President Franklin Roosevelt said, “This great nation shall endure, it shall revive and prosper.” 
 
Through prayer we will keep connected to Jesus who assures us that there is no fear in love but perfect love casts out all fear (I John 4:18). 
 
Love,
Pastor Ric

1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. – Psalm 91:1
 
On cold winter mornings I am deeply grateful to God for the wonderful blessing of a warm house to shelter me. The shelter of my warm car that carries me to church is a gift. A heavy blanket covering me at night is a blessing. I suspect you enjoy similar shelters. When we choose to give thanks for God’s gifts of warm shelters, our complaints about the cold diminish as our gratitude for God’s sheltering care grows. As we go through this winter day, the Lord will show us the many other Jesus’ sheltering care covers us. God’s sheltering love brings warmth to our bodies, comfort to hour minds and peace to our spirits.
 
Affectionately,
Ric
