First Connections – March 4, 2016

I cry with my voice to the Lord, with my voice I make supplication to the Lord, I pour out my complaint before him, I tell my trouble before him. When my spirit is faint, thou knowest my way!                Psalm 142:1-3a


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
