PRAYERS FOR OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS - As we thank the Lord for His blessing to us let us pause and remember the persecuted and martyred Christians in lands such Iraq, Egypt, Nigeria, and Indonesia.
1 Make a joyful shout to the LORD, all you lands!
2 Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before His presence with singing.
3 Know that the LORD, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
4 Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
5 For the LORD is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations. Psalm 100 -NKJV
