PLEASE PRAY for those people around the world for who the start of 2020 is a painful one: through loss of loved ones, fear for safety or devastation as a result of extreme weather conditions. Help us to be thankful for all we have and generous to those in need.
READ THE GOOD NEWS – Matthew 2: 1-12 – Just as Herod could not derail God’s plan for His Son, Jesus, help us to trust that the Father has given us, his children, all we need to resist those that might tempt us to stray from his path.
