Good Morning!

December 13, 2017

Pastor StapfWe usually conclude our weekly Men's Bible Study with a time of prayer, each man praying around in turn, and I conclude the prayer. This week's was an especially good time of sharing in the presence of our Lord. When it came to my time I had nothing further to add so I began singing the Doxology, and all joined in. "Praise God from whom all blessings flow. Praise Him all creatures here below. Praise Him above ye heavenly host. Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen." This is a wonderful prayer in itself. There are times when we don't know how we should pray.(Romans 8:26) This is certainly a wonderful way to set our attitude on the Lord and bring us into His presence.
