No longer the slaves of sin, we would become your obedient servants, O Lord. Bend our will to match the shape of your need. Fill our minds with the vision of life made new by the power of your forgiving goodness. On this day we give you thanks for the healing which you so eagerly share with us, and we pray that all our tomorrows shine with the joy of Christ’s presence in us. We pray this in the name of Him who taught us to pray…

There has been an interest in making a 2nd crochet/knit project. Several different ideas have been suggested which include a prayer shawl, lap throw or another “quilt”. Sooooo, if you still have leftover yarn and an “itch to stitch” keep those 6 inch squares coming. Remember they can either be crocheted or knitted and can be any pattern you choose as long as they measure as close to a 6 inch block as possible. We will be collecting them through April 27. Thanks again! Sheryl and Pam
