For God to continue to supply the funds necessary to respond to the requests for Bibles from prison inmates. The need is great.
It seems most appropriate this morning for us to conclude our time of worship and study by singing Frances R. Havergal's great hymn "Like a River Glorious." Join me singing verses 2 and 3:
Hidden in the hollow of His blessed hand,
Never foe can follow Never traitor stand;
Not a surge of worry Not a shade of care;
Not a blast of hurry Touch the Spirit there.
Ev'ry joy or trial Falleth from above,
Traced upon our dial By the Sun of Love.
We may trust Him fully All for us to do;
They who trust Him wholly Find Him wholly true.
Stayed upon Jehovah, Hearts are fully blest;
Finding, as He promised, Perfect peace and rest.
