Lord Jesus: In these troubled times, truth be told, we have come to the end of ourselves.

+ There is no other supply sufficient to the need.
+ There is no other strength sufficient for the task.
+ There is no other balm sufficient for the pain.
+ There is no other rest sufficient for the exhaustion.
+ There is no other hope sufficient for the multiple issues in front of us.

Lord Jesus: We bring it all to You – trusting in Your unfailing love.

+ We bring our broken, conflicted and wandering hearts to you.
+ We bring our struggling marriages to you.
+ We bring our divided churches to you.
+ We bring our hurting friends to you.
+ We bring our wayward children to you.
