Hughes Memorial Weekly Update -Tuesday, April 30th

Memory Verse
"He asked, "Who are you, Lord?" The reply came, 
"I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting."   
 - Acts 9:5  

Thought For the Week
 Does you zeal for religion cause you to hurt people 
 or love people?

Weekly prayer for the Homeless 

PSALM 27:10 
Even if my father and mother abandon me, the LORD will hold me close.

PRAYER: Forgiving and loving God, please hold all who are homeless in your care.  Protect them from the dangers and uncertainty that surrounds them every day.  Give them the strength to endure the hardships, the courage to seek aid, and the resilience of spirit needed if their pleas are met with stony indifference, or worse.  Touch the hearts of those who CAN help so that they will remember your teachings and WILL help.  Open the eyes of those who turn away or ignore the pleas for help so that they may truly see the suffering.  Let them realize that their charge is not to judge, but to help.  Bless those who are suffering the sense of abandonment by society that often accompanies poverty.  Remind them that you are holding them close, even if they feel abandoned in all other ways.  Give them whatever they need to become whole.  In the precious name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
