Our thought for today is from :Psalm 97:1: "The Lord reigns; let the earth rejoice; let the multitudes of the isles be glad."

Let us pray. Almighty God, we give You thanks and praise for the wonderful things You have done for us. Guide us to live so others may see Your glory in all we do and say. Keep us in Your love and grant us rest and a peaceful weekend. Give us strength and willingness to continue what You have set forth for us. Protect our defenders of freedom. Bless our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all who give of their time and labor for the good of all. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our women and men as they suffer and sacrifice for our freedom. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer. Amen.
