Prayer from the Mountainside
by April Cooper
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, forever. Amen.
~taught by Jesus in Matthew 6:9-13 KJV

July 2, 2020 For Jackie:
"Please pray for Jackie and her family who have suffered the loss of a brother and sister in law because of murder. Pray this family will find peace and comfort in the promise of their Savior. Pray they will be able to forgive the person who took their family members from their presence. Please also pray for the perpetrator of the crime so he would come to repentance, turn to God and the family for forgiveness, no longer allowing Satan to govern his actions. Let all feel the love of Jesus in their lives."
Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you;
therefore he will rise up to show you compassion.
For the Lord is a God of justice.
Blessed are all who wait for him!
People of Zion, who live in Jerusalem, you will weep no more. How gracious he will be when you cry for help! As soon as he hears, he will answer you. (Isaiah 30:18-19 NIV)
