"For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being ROOTED and grounded in LOVE, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the LOVE of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen."

~Ephesians 3:14-21

Continue to Pray for the Friday Night Youth Fellowship Nights

Another exciting evening with the youth as they came to our house for the Youth Fellowship Night! Please continue to pray that ears and hearts will be open to hear the love of Jesus Christ. Many of the youth live in a neighborhood that connects to the large prison. Many families members are hurting in this area, as fathers are sitting in prison and the mothers are having to take the role as the leader of the family. Young boys are growing up without a father in their home to help raise them to be God-honoring young men. Please pray that each young adult and child who does not know Christ as their Savior, will put their trust in the Heavenly Father, no matter how bad their circumstance or situation is here on Earth!

"But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God." 
- John 1:12


Jesus Walks on Water

Immediately after this, Jesus insisted that his disciples get back into the boat and cross to the other side of the lake, while he sent the people home. After sending them home, he went up into the hills by himself to pray. Night fell while he was there alone.

Meanwhile, the disciples were in trouble far away from land, for a strong wind had risen, and they were fighting heavy waves. About three o’clock in the morning Jesus came toward them, walking on the water. When the disciples saw him walking on the water, they were terrified. In their fear, they cried out, 
“It’s a ghost!”

But Jesus spoke to them at once. “Don’t be afraid,” he said. 
“Take courage. I am here!”

Then Peter called to him, “Lord, if it’s really you, tell me to come to you, walking on the water.”

“Yes, come,” Jesus said.

So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water toward Jesus. But when he saw the strong wind and the waves, he was terrified and began to sink. “Save me, Lord!” he shouted.

Jesus immediately reached out and grabbed him. “You have so little faith,” Jesus said. “Why did you doubt me?”

When they climbed back into the boat, the wind stopped. Then the disciples worshiped him. 
“You really are the Son of God!” they exclaimed.

-Matthew 14:22-33
