Beloved, Grace and Peace be multiplied unto you, through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus Christ. Please allow me to apologize for missing a day. Pastor Dorothy and I attended the funeral of her Aunt and the demands of family was overwhelming. We certainly solicit your prayers.
Today is day number twelve (12). You are a giant. You are doing so well. Now think of it, there are less days in front of you than there are behind. You have gone pass the midpoint of this journey and the end is in sight. You are doing very well. Today, I just want to encourage you with the Word of God. You are seeking the LORD in prayer and fasting. Prayer is an essential part this journey and sometimes we feel that God may not hear us. Well, hear are some assurances. So many have asked the LORD to hear their prayer. Let’s look at some examples.

Some times we doubt. We don’t know if God hears us. We don’t see God’s answer from our questions. We don’t see God’s plan from our need. We don’t see God’s provision in our lack, but hear the Word of God. He hears you beloved. We must always hang in there to see his provisions, his plan and his answers for our lives. Listen to Holy Writ.

Beloved, know this, God has heard your prayers and he will answer every supplication. You are not doing this in vain. God will answer your prayers and you will be what God has said you will be.
Remember, drink all the water you can. At least 8-10 glass of water a day. You are doing incredibly well. I will see you at church on Sunday. Remember bring someone with you.
Live Life on Purpose and Not By Mistake,
Yours Because I am His,
