“It was not by their sword that they won the land, nor did their arm bring them victory; it was your right hand, your arm, and light of your face, for you loved them.” Psalm 44:3
The verse in the Prayer Corner above is part of the healing prayer journey. Post it in a prominent place so you can read it & meditate on this gift God has given us in Jesus.
This week we continue a series of messages called “Living Wisely” taken from the book of Ecclesiastes. We will consider God’s call in chapters 8 & 9 to seize the gift of each day in a confusing world.
Next week, we look forward to hearing the testimony of what God did among those who went on the mission trip to Peru.
Prayer Opportunity This Sunday: After the service, elders & prayer team members will be available to pray with those who desire it. “Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord.” James 5:14
NEIGHBORHOOD PRAYER WALK DAY | This Sunday, carve out some time to walk around your neighborhoods & pray for your neighbors. Here’s a great guide to get you started!

CHURCH ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (CAP)
CAREGIVER STRESS | Caring for a loved one with dementia, mental illness or a chronic illness can be very rewarding but also physically, emotionally & financially challenging. That’s why self-care is one of the most important things you can do as a caregiver. If you’re not sure how to fit self-care into your busy schedule, please remember that members of Providence have access to confidential, free appointments with a licensed clinician. Contact the office (616-698-7930 or email@example.com) to learn more!
