Praises & Prayer Requests
Those who continue in sin, rebuke in the presence of all, so that the rest also may be fearful of sinning. 1 Timothy 5:20 (NASB)
O Lord, do not rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your wrath. For your arrows have pierced me, and your hand has come down upon me. Psalm 38:1, 2 (NIV)
It is better to heed a wise man's rebuke than to listen to the song of fools. Ecclesiastes 7:5 (NIV)
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I say rejoice! Let your forbearing spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:4-7 (NASB)

Let's celebrate heaven this morning by singing
"He the Pearly Gates Will Open":
Love Divine, so great and wondrous, Deep and mighty, pure, sublime!
Coming from the heart of Jesus, Just the same thro' tests of time.
In life's eventide, a twilight, At His door I'll knock and wait;
By the precious love of Jesus I shall enter heaven's gate.
He the pearly gates will open,
So that I may enter in;
For He purchased my redemption
And forgave me all my sin.
