Prayer Request & Scripture


Matthew 6:25-27, 34

“Therefore, I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or stow away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you worrying add a single hour to life?…Therfore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
