Reflect on What You’ve Heard

  • What is something that was bad when it happened but good when you look back?
  • What in your life is it hard to wait on God for?
  • What is one thing in your life you need to commit to praying for and give back to God by faith?

Pray it Out

Dear Jesus, please give me the grace to have faith in Your love and promises! You have never failed and today I choose to accept Your unfailing love and accept the truth that You never will fail! Amen.
