Memory Verses of the Week

My brothers, show no partiality as you hold the faith in our Lord Jesus Christ,the Lord of glory. (James 2:1)

Prayer Requests & Praises

  • Pray for the unrest at UVA as they have been undergoing many conflicts and brokenness on their campus from suicides to assaults. May they be able to still seek and do good.
  • Pray for action and confidence in the midst of all the rebel groups similar to ISIS around. That God’s people all around are able to seek first His glory and acceptance rather than this world’s.
  • Thank the Lord for the upcoming spring break. May wherever the students go during this time, that they are able to be stewards of His Word and promises.
  • Thank the Lord for the change of seasons and for the greater presence of sunlight. May these everyday blessings continue to fill us with joy.

In Christ,

Stephen & Jevon
