Why should I fear in times of trouble,when the iniquity of those who cheat me surrounds me,those who trust in their wealthand boast of the abundance of their riches? (Psalm 49:5-6 ESV)
Чому маю боятись у день лихоліття, як стане круг мене неправда моїх ошуканців, які на багатство своє покладають надію, і своїми достатками хваляться? (Псалми 49:6-7 Ukrainian)
Most holy and awesome God, thank you, dear Father, for the outstanding gift of life on this new day. Protect the innocent elderly widows who often unbeknownst to themselves fall victim to the schemes of those who take false advantage of the uncertainty of earthly riches. Help your people of faith to cease being in awe of those who arrogantly put their hopes in earthly wealth that is already turning sour. Bless the faithful who keep watch day and night on the certainty of true eternal wealth that is your reward to those who follow Christ Jesus as Lord. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
**We are in Sloviansk, Ukraine and look forward to seeing some of the young people and all others at church tomorrow. We already met our sister Galina on the street yesterday while walking Seva home to his apartment after an afternoon at the movies – Angry Birds (dubbed Ukrainian) It was all fun and great exercise and fresh air! Please shower the Father in heaven with prayers for our Galina Binkley who is having some complications resulting from the surgical procedure she went through a few days prior to us embarking on this trip.
David Binkley, Sr. Gospel Minister
