Today's Prayer
Father God, help us to hear your call and respond so that we can share your love with others. We pray the prayer your Son taught us, “Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

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).
