Greet the Lord Daily in Prayer!!!
 
And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and He who believes in Me shall never thirst.” John 6:35
 
I recommend reading John 6.
 
Mary Lathbury, daughter of a Methodist minister, was informally designated the “Poet Laureate of Chautauqua.” Lake Chautauqua had Methodist Camp on the lake. Mary served as the general editor of publications for children/youth division of the Methodist Sunday School Union. In 1877 Mary was asked to write a hymn for the Chautauqua Bible Study Hour. She wrote the two-stanza hymn “Break Thou the Bread of Life.” Alexander Groves later wrote 2 more stanzas for this hymn. Mary also wrote the popular camp hymn “Day Is Dying in the West”
 
My prayer for the week:
Dear Lord, Help us to let our hearts circle You in our prayer daily. Sometimes it is hard for us to know how to pray in service to You. We know of Your great love and understanding of our needs. We thank you for being there in all of our times of need. Let our hearts be open to Your calling of us. Praise God. Amen
