Prayer Of The Week

John 7:16-17 So Jesus answered them, ”My teaching is not mine, but Gods, Hime who sent me. If any person would truly desire to do His Will, he or she will come to realize whether my teaching is from God or if I am declaring things I made up on my own.”

This week we pray for: All Residents and All Staff
