Lenten meditation...

"Even now," declares the LORD,
"return to me with all your heart,
with fasting and weeping and mourning." Joel 2:12

I know that I have a divided heart, Oh God. For this, forgive me. In this time of reflection and repentance, may I become more aware of everything that separates me from Your love, and let me understand the full consequences of that separation from You. Then let me know I am forgiven, and show me the way home.

Please pray for these ...

About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everybody's chains came loose. The jailer woke up, and when he saw the prison doors open, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself because he thought the prisoners had escaped. But Paul shouted, "Don't harm yourself! We are all here!"

The jailer called for lights, rushed in and fell trembling before Paul and Silas. He then brought them out and asked, "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?" They replied, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household." Acts 16:25-31

My name is Sharon...

"I am writing in hopes that you would help me in my prayers for my brother Robbie. I have not heard from him in three years. I pray he is safe and alright. To hear from him is my heart's prayer or just to know he is okay. Also my daughter for all power in Jesus to have a good and happy life, to trust God to help her make it and keep her safe. For all my sisters & brothers that He keeps them safe and that all my family learn to trust God's will even when we don't understand. I ask that you pray with me for blessing for myself and family, for it has been hard for many years now. That we all have faith that all we go through will in the end be for our good and God's glory. I try my best not to worry for I know its a sin, but I am human and I find myself at times so worried. I thank God for special people He has and will keep sending in our lives. I pray for each lady here as well as their families. May God bless us all to trust him. Thank you for your time and prayers in Jesus Christ's name I ask all things. "
