This Thursday is my prayer day. If you have any joys or concerns you would like me to raise up, please let me know.

Let us pray. O God, just as the trees let go of the dead leaves, help us to leave go of any thing that is dead in our lives that prevents us from being truly alive, vibrant, joyful, and whole. Amen.
In Christ's love,
