Prayer

Prayer Rev. Lynwood F. Mundy
May the Lord God Yahweh bless us all as we begin a new week not knowing if myself or you will see today's end, or the weeks end. Now, let us thank God for this moment with humility, honor and praise for last week and this very moment. Thank Him for: your life, health and strength. Not forgetting about others in your family, friends, enemies and the peoples of the world. Pray for your President, those dictators that kill and oppress their people. Lets not forget the sick, disabled, incarcerated and the mentally ill and those suffering from autism. InJesus' name . Amen.
