Everybody needs to know that you love them! Amen.

Daylight Scripture – Every single one of you who judge others is without any excuse. You condemn yourself when you judge another person because the one who is judging is doing the same things.
Daylight Prayer – My Lord, Save us from the judgments that follow us day in and day out. Lord, people are losing their minds from the cruel and harsh judgments that they hear other say about them. Their morale is being destroyed, their confidence shot apart, and their ability to bear up gets weaker and weaker. Lord, have mercy. Help us to remember that the only judge who counts to us and to the world is you. Focus our attention on being the best that you have made us to be, and help us to let go of what the world thinks. Amen.

I pray for you to give me ears that are attuned to you…strictly. Amen.

Lord have mercy on us all. Amen.
Daylight Scripture – I love the beauty of your house, Lord; I love the place where your glory resides.
Daylight Prayer – Where do I find the place where your glory resides Lord? Is it in the majestic cathedrals that have been built all over the world? Is it by the roaring oceans at sunset or sunrise? Is it in the laughter of a child’s happiness? Is it in the tender moments of love between a man and woman? Or in ten acre canola field? I must admit, Lord. I find you in all those places. I am grateful that your house extends beyond my feeble imagination. Glory to your name. Amen.
