Let’s continue to pray and go in 2022. May the Kingdom of God come and His will be done in your life, in your family, in your nation, and in the nations, on earth as it is in Heaven.

From the rising of the sun to where it sets,
the name of the Lord is to be praised.

~ Psalm 113:3

    Yes, He is a mighty and awesome Father and although sometimes we are few in number He hears and sees all! It was wonderful to know we were joined by thousands around the world praising God and crying out to Him for His nations and peoples!
