Tuesday Prayer

God of All Creation, Extreme heat is overtaking seasons usually filled with cool breezes And a multitude of tropical depressions are swirling in the Atlantic.

Tuesday Prayer

Divine Dialogue Starter- For boundary training I would like to give thanks. Yes, it’s not easy to think of the do’s and the do nots of ministry.
