Hast thou not known? Has thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the Earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? There is no searching of His understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might, He increases their strength. Even the youth shall faint and be weary. The young men shall utterly fall. But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings as eagles. They shall run and not be weary. They shall walk and not faint.
Dear Heavenly Father, I thank Thee for this day.
I thank You for the privilege to stand in this hallowed place and invoke Thy presence. I pray now that You would bless these men and women that serve in the House of Representatives. Please grant them with a double portion of wisdom and understanding as they seek Your will in the affairs of this great Nation.
I pray that they accomplish what Moses instructed the leaders to do in Deuteronomy 1:16: "Hear the disputes between the people, and judge them fairly." I ask these blessings in the name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
“Let us think of nothing but serving God: He will readily provide whatever else we need. ”

Title: In Passionate Pursuit – Discovering our calling in life
Bible Focus: If you are trying to find out your calling in life, you will want to be part of this series of bible studies:
In Passionate Pursuit – Discovering our Calling in Life
This week our lesson will be on the importance of knowing our spiritual gifts, our talents and skills along with the importance of the fruit of the spirit.
The fruit of the Spirit is the revealed character of God in each of us.
Our spiritual gifts are the works and activities where God's character is revealed and positively experienced by others.
If you are searching for what your assignment in life is or how to enjoy what you are doing more, you will want to share in these truths.
We are here to be of service to you!!
Please feel free to bring your lunch
