Noon Meeting News – EMT/Firefighter Award Presented – October 18, 2016

Phather Phil’s Opening Prayer

Heavenly Father, it’s easy for us to be humble when we are not perfect in every way. Now we know that doesn’t come as a new revelation to You, Lord. For You know that we are an obstinate, stiff neck people that take pride in giving ourselves all the credit. Your spirit is constantly with us giving us council and direction. Help us recognize that it is your love for us that makes us a piece of the puzzle that is needed to complete your purpose. Then help us to be sure our piece of the puzzle fits your will and we continue to do what we do for the kids and for your glory. – Amen!
