Hughes Memorial Weekly Update -Tuesday, March 26

Memory Verse
"Beloved, I do not consider that I have made it my own; one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the heavenly call of God in Christ Jesus."   
 - Philippians 4:13-14  

Thought For the Week
 Are you ready to press on?

Weekly prayer for the Homeless 
 MATTHEW 8:20
   But Jesus replied, "Foxes have dens to live in, and birds have nests,
   but the Son of man has no place even to lay his head.  

PRAYER: Loving and merciful God, we are thankful that we have beds to sleep in and homes to keep us warm and dry.  Even the birds make their nests and the foxes find their dens but Jesus as a man had no such home.  Today we see women and men that are homeless just as Jesus was and they have no place to  turn.  We pray for them, but is that enough? We know that Jesus suffers with them, but do they know?  How will they know if we don't reach out to them with love in action?  Dear Lord, give us the strength to see ways that we can be apart of finding shelter, food and jobs for those in need.  Help us to be creative in our minds, compassionate in our hearts and generous with our resources so that they too might know that God cares and provides for them.  In Jesus name, we pray.  Amen
