Words of Hope and Encouragement
Dear St. John's Family,

David faced some difficult times and he turned to the Lord in prayer when he wrote, “In you, O Lord, I have taken refuge; let me never be put to shame; deliver me in your righteousness.  Turn your ear to me, come quickly to my rescue; be my rock of refuge, a strong fortress to save me. Since you are my rock and my fortress, for the sake of your name lead and guide me.” (Psalm 31:1-3)

We are facing times we’ve never experienced in our lifetime and we, too, turn to the Lord in prayer.  “Lord God, You are my rock and my fortress.  Though the ground beneath my feet seems to be shaken, because I stand on You, I will not be moved!  You have called me by name and I belong to You alone.  O Lord, grant me eyes to see Your guidance and the trust to follow where You lead.  Amen”
