PLEASE PRAY for baby Jack (Dracup). Jack was rushed to hospital this last week after suffering a seizure. Please pray that he would make a full recovery and heal through God’s Holy Spirit, being able to settle back at home. Pray for John and Fiona as they care for him, and Isaac and Rebekah to feel love and supported.
READ THE GOOD NEWS – Luke 4:1-13 – As Satan tempted Jesus in the wilderness, we too experience this at one time or another. Prolonged times of feeling abandoned, more things seem to be going wrong rather than right, challenging times. It is during these ‘wilderness’ periods that we need to rely on God’s word, rebuking Satan with scripture, don’t lose hope, continue to trust in Him and His plans for your life.
