Psalm 119

1   Blessed are those whose way is blameless,

who walk in the law of the Lord!

   Blessed are those who keep his testimonies,

who seek him with their whole heart,

   who also do no wrong,

but walk in his ways!

   You have commanded your precepts

to be kept diligently.

   Oh that my ways may be steadfast

in keeping your statutes!

   Then I shall not be put to shame,

having my eyes fixed on all your commandments.

   I will praise you with an upright heart,

when I learn your righteous rules.

   I will keep your statutes;

do not utterly forsake me!



Every Giant will Fall

Rend Collective


I can see the Promised Land,

Though there’s pain within the plan;

There is victory in the end;

Your love is my battle cry

When my fears, like Jericho

Build their walls around my soul;

When my heart is overthrown

Your love is my battle cry,

The anthem for all my life


Every giant will fall,

The mountains will move;

Every chain of the past,

You’ve broken in two.

There is hope within the fight,

In the wars that rage inside;

Though the shadows steal the light,

Your love is my battle cry,

The anthem for all my life


No greater name, no higher name,

No stronger name than Jesus;

You overcame, broke every chain,

Forever reign, King Jesus (repeat)


Over fear, over lies,

We’re singing the truth

That nothing is impossible with You


PrayerCard focus: Your Marriage/Family; What is one specific ‘giant’ your family member needs God’s help in fighting and bringing down?

Health and Prayer Concerns:

​6/7 Evan McKeever has a foot sore that is being treated with IV antibiotics. It is currently what is keeping him in the hospital. The upcoming surgery is to remove the tumor. Surgery date is dependent on healing of the foot sore. He has completed his 10th round of chemotherapy. After surgery we anticipate he will still have another 19 rounds to go. He is still dealing with a great deal of pain. The pain drives a lot of our issues, vomiting, eating/not eating, mobility, etc. The family is so grateful for your support and prayers.

6/6 Our deepest sympathy is extended to the family of Dwayne Hicks. He was the father of the late Kirk Hicks.  He was suffering from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s so we are glad that he is no longer suffering.  He requested no service be held. Please pray for the family through this difficult time.  Terry Hicks ​ and Tonya ​ Meyer​

They are so very thankful for your prayers!
