Father, praise you holy name! You are wonderful and awesome in all of your ways.Thank you for this beautiful day. You have provided a way for us to commune with you on a daily basis. As we come before your throne, touch the hearts of those who are hurting due to grief and sorrow. There are faces we see each day that wear a bright smile, but inside they are falling apart. Isaiah 61:1-3 reminds us of the hope we have in you no matter the situation. Father, heal the brokenhearted, give the oil of joy for mourning, and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. Alleluia, praise God. In Jesus' name. Amen
-- Evangelist Celena Williams
