The one who started a good work in you will stay with you to complete the job by the day of Christ Jesus. - Philippians 1:6 (CEB)

Today's Prayer
Dear Father, thank you for not setting us aside. Help us to trust that you will finish what you have started as we pray, “Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen” (Matt. 6:9-13, KJV).
