Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow. He chose to give birth to us by giving us his true word. And we, out of all creation, became his prized possession. - James 1:17-18 (NLT))
God, the Lord, created the heavens and stretched them out. He created the earth and everything in it. He gives breath to everyone, life to everyone who walks the earth. And it is he who says, “I, the Lord, have called you to demonstrate my righteousness. I will take you by the hand and guard you, and I will give you to my people, Israel, as a symbol of my covenant with them. And you will be a light to guide the nations. - Isaiah 42:5-6 (NLT)
Creator God, we thank you for all you have created in this world, it is too big for us to comprehend. You have created us and we are all so different, but can be the same in your eyes through the saving grace of your Son, Jesus Christ. Thank you Lord. Be with Paoli Presbyterian Church and our ministry partners in Egypt and Belize, keep those traveling safe, and may their time of ministry be to your glory. We love you Lord, in the name Jesus we pray. Amen.
