3. O send out Your light and Your truth, let them lead me;  let them bring me to Your holy hill, and to Your dwelling places.

4. Then I will go to the altar of God, to God my exceeding joy;  and  upon the lyre I shall praise You, O God, my God.

5. Why are you in despair,  O  my soul?  And why are you disturbed within me?  Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him, the help of my countenance, and my God.     Psalms 43:3-5

 

In my journal for December 9, 2019,  just as the corona virus was beginning in China,  and before we had ever heard of it, I wrote a prayer:

 

“Lord, there is a pandemic of despair and depression.

 

Only a filling of Your Holy Spirit can bring hope and peace.

 

Start with me and Lakewood Baptist Church, and let Your Spirit flow!”

 

How much more is this Scripture and prayer needed today!

 

EXPECT the Lord to move for His glory in our services this week!

Our Lord’s servant, Pastor Terrell
