Recommended reading: Romans 13

Lelia Naylor grew up in Ohio. As a child, Lelia went forward to the altar several times, seeking salvation. At the age of ten she converted to God. Shortly thereafter she began playing the organ at prayer meetings. Age the age of nineteen Lelia married Charles Morris and they joined the Methodist Episcopal Church. She sang in choir and worked in Sunday school and women’s ministries. Lelia wrote the words and music to over a thousand gospel songs, but shunned the limelight preferring to be a nondescript homemaker for forty eight years. One of her first hymns written in 1898 was “Nearer, Still Nearer.”

My prayer for the week:
Dear Lord, thank you for the cleansing power of the Holy Spirit. Help us to open our hearts and let the Holy Spirit come in to cleanse our souls to better serve You. May our lives be a light to bring others together know You and Your Son Jesus. In Your Holy Name we pray. Amen
