What is the most significant cause of your distress these days? How do you want God to help you in this situation?
Merciful God, who promises to be with us even as we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, incline you ear to my plea. Break into my life with your presence as the sun breaks through the clouds! Amen.
~ Becky Ullom Naugle, Director for Youth and Young Adult Ministries
