As we go into another week, raise the warrior psalm and ask, Who Is On The Lord’s Side? To serve the King, be his helpers, by his call of mercy and grace divine, WE are on the Lord’s side:
HYMN NO. 4 – WHO IS ON THE LORD’S SIDE? – WCG 8

PRAYER
Thank you, Father in Heaven, that victory is secure in Jesus our Saviour. Be with us through this week to keep our vision of the future firmly fixed in our minds, to fight the good fight, be your Ambassadors for Christ and not to give up but filled with courage to face what our future holds. By faith!
AMEN
