LORD, I trust you to carry me through this time and deliver me from all unrighteousness.
Bow down your ear to me, deliver me speedily; be my rock of refuge, a fortress of defense to save me. (Psalm 31:2)
Father, hear the cries of your children. Establish us in your son Jesus, our rock and our refuge.
For you are my rock and my fortress; therefore, for your name's sake, lead me and guide me. (Psalm 31:3)
Holy Spirit, guide me day by day. Lead me in your righteous paths.
Pull me out of the net which they have secretly laid for me, for you are my strength. (Psalm 31:4)
Jesus, protect me from every trap and trick of the evil one and give me the strength of your Holy Spirit day by day.
Into your hand I commit my spirit; you have redeemed me, O LORD God of truth. (Psalm 31:5)
Father, into your hand I commit my spirit. Thank you for redeeming me by the blood of your son Jesus. Fill me daily with your truth. Thank you.
A word received: Wait on me. I AM your hope and your great reward.
A word received: Keep looking to me.
A word received: Keep your eyes on me.

This service will begin with contemporary praise and worship music, Eucharist will be celebrated, and prayer will be offered for those in need of healing or any other needs.
We are blessed to have a guest preacher with us this month. Rev. Donna J. Rohrmiller ministers out of a deep love of the Lord and His Word. She has been a missionary since 2004 when she visited Ghana, West Africa, as Bible school student. Ghana and its people have been part of Donna’s life ever since. She serves as the Ambassador to Ghana for International Accelerated Missions (IAM). The goal of this ministry, “Donna in Ghana,” is to be a catalyst for godly transformation in all whom the ministry touches. The activities of the ministry include overseeing and directing short-term, part-time Bible schools, scholarship and other educational assistance to needy youth, and health insurance and other assistance to the needy elderly. Dearest to Donna’s heart is to teach and preach the Word of God with revelation from a position of intimacy. A freewill offering will be taken at the healing service in support of her ministry.
