Prayer Request & Scripture


Psalm 16: 1-8

“Preserve me, O God, for in You I take refuge. I say to The Lord, “You are my Lord; I have no good apart from You”…The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply…The Lord always before me; because He is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken.”
