Today’s Words of Encourament
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.John 14:27, ESV
To help you memorize the verse, copy the first letter of each word on a index card. Next time you look at the index card, the letters will prompt you to recall the verse—but you won’t actually be looking at the verse! Try it.

Use this sample prayer to get you started praying
Our God and Father, as we behold the current situation in the world—pestilences, wars, recession, shortages, violence— it is natural for us, fragile and vulnerable humans, to fear, be troubled, and lose hope.
Nevertheless, your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, tells us that we must neither fear nor be troubled because he has given us his peace. Yes, he has left his peace with us.
Lord, we trust in you, our hope is in you, and we call on you.
Help us, keep us, guide us. Fill our hearts and minds with your peace so we can honor by trusting in you, and so we can glorify you for saving us.
