Let my prayer be counted as incense before thee, and the lifting up of my hands as an evening sacrifice! Psalm 141:2


From the Prayer Bear:

 If you are an AOL customer, you are not receiving all of the Prayer Bear Notes because AOL is refusing to accept delivery of some of them. I'm not an AOL customer so I can't do anything about it; I just wanted you to know. If you have another email address I can use, please let me know.           In Faith,  Diana
