Jonah 1:17
"And the Lord appointed a great fish to swallow Jonah, and Jonah was in the stomach of the fish three days and three nights."

I have been thinking about how Jonah was scared of the Lord. He thought that he could hide from Him. But Jonah couldn't hide from God, because God is everywhere. And sometimes we are all scared. But we shouldn't run away from God like Jonah did. Instead we should follow His ways.
Dear God, please forgive us for all the times we have run away. Help us to keep our confidence strong in you. Amen.

Prayer Requests

"I would like to ask for Prayer for the ladies at the Guardian Angels transitional home. these are women who were incarcerated, women who needed a clean and sober environment from drugs/alcohol addictions or homeless women in immediate crisis.

We have a need for a van to get the women to work, appointments, interviews etc.. We also have needs for food, toiletries, clothes, copier, shoes, paper goods, office supplies, and mostly permanent homes for the ladies when they finish the program.

We really need your prayers.

Thanks You and God Bless "
