Praying Together

Psalm 65:5–8 (ESV)
1       I will sing of the steadfast love of the LORD, forever;
with my mouth I will make known your faithfulness to all generations.
2       For I said, “Steadfast love will be built up forever;
in the heavens you will establish your faithfulness.”
3       You have said, “I have made a covenant with my chosen one;
I have sworn to David my servant:
4       ‘I will establish your offspring forever,
and build your throne for all generations.’ ”

Thank you for praying with us. It is only through the Spirit’s work in and through us that disciples will grow and prove faithful..
