SCRIPTURE OF THE WEEK

Psalm 91:1-7

“He who dwells in the shelter of The Most High will abide in The Shadow of The Almighty…He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be a protective shield…You will not fear the terror of the night nor the arrow that flies by day nor the disease that stalks the darkness, nor the pestilence that ravages at noon.”
