Hughes Memorial Weekly Update -Tuesday, May 21

Memory Verse

"A certain woman named Lydia, a worshiper of God, was listening to us; she was from the city of Thyatira and a dealer in purple cloth.  The Lord opened her heart to listen eagerly to what was said by Paul."    
 -Acts 16:14  

Thought For the Week
 When you come to worship do you come with an open heart and a spirit that is eager to hear the message? 

Weekly prayer for the Homeless 

ISAIAH 32:18 
My people will live in safety, quietly at home.  They will be at rest.

PRAYER: Lord thank you for providing me with a home, where I can live in safety, quietly and at rest from the labors.  Thank you, Lord for this blessing, and all the blessings you have bestowed on me over the years.  I pray, Lord, for those who have no home, no safe place to lay their head.  Encourage them, God, help them to find shelter, to allow them to rest from their daily struggles, and have the time to reflect, pray and find a way to seek what they need to live 
as dignified bearers of your holy image.  Our Lord Jesus found himself without a home, as an infant, and later as He wandered in His mission of salvation.  In Jesus name we pray for your mercy for the homeless, that they can find their home on this Earth, until they find their final home in paradise.  Amen.
