*Hymn: #88 (UMH) “Maker in Whom We Live”
*Prayer for Guidance, Enlightenment, and Healing
Most loving God, you are with us always and through you we are sustained in this life. May we respond now and always to your gracious provision for us. May we overcome our selfish ways and live in Christian compassion. May we live this day in humble gratitude rather than with continual complaint. Bless us when we struggle to find our way. Bless all those who feel isolated, lost, forgotten. Comfort all who endure the heartache of loss and sorrow of separation. Grant that we will be vessels of your mysterious powers to heal,
enlighten, and restore. This we pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.

THANK YOU: I would like to thank everyone for their gifts, cards, visits, prayers and just thinking of me because of the recent accident I had. The doctor says the injury is healing nicely but will take more time to heal fully. At least the final healing time can be done at home. Again, thank you all for being there when I needed it most.
