Partner Prayer Request July 26, 2011
A Headline Prayer of Praise; SOCPM was blessed with an anonymous gift recently was of a significant amount. Do not know if the giver is a recipient of the SOCPM Prayer Request but a bottom of the heart Thank you!
Michelle and I both re ever so thankful for all of you.
The writer of Psalm 136:1 expresses praise and thanks to our loving God with the words "Give thanks to the Lord for his steadfast love endures forever."
Paul writes to Timothy in 1 Timothy 1:12 "I thank him who has given me strength, Christ Jesus our Lord, because he judged me faithful, appointing me to his service."
I personally echo the words of Psalm 136:1 in thanks for his provision of love and support through you and raise a prayer of thanks for going me strength and that I remain faithful in my service of stewarding the ministry he has called me to serve him.
To Him be the glory.
For the aforementioned gift!
