PLEASE PRAY for our United Kingdom, that we will be tolerant and resilient and adjust to change. Help us to play our part to rise above ideology and build up the common good.
READ THE GOOD NEWS – Luke 18, 9-14 13 – “The tax collector stood alone too. But when he prayed, he would not even look up to heaven. He felt very humble before God. He said, ‘O God, have mercy on me. I am a sinner!’ I tell you, when this man finished his prayer and went home, he was right with God. But the Pharisee, who felt that he was better than others, was not right with God. People who make themselves important will be made humble. But those who make themselves humble will be made important.”
