Prayer of the Day

Prayer for today (1/5/18)

Heavenly Father, guide us in this New Year to love you more each day. Studying your precious word and praying more should be at the top of our list. Showing kindness and loving others is a must for Christians. We love you, Lord, and thank you for this past year for many blessings that came our way. Every day with Jesus is sweeter than the day before. Amen.
