Prayer Request & Scripture


Isiah 43:2-4

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not consume you. Got I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior…Since you are precious and honorred in my sight, and because I love you.”
