Monday Devotional

Hello Monday
I am committing this week to prayer. This past Sunday the lesson was concerning Prayer, and how we pray, what words are we using, and is our prayer heartfelt. How can we know if our prayers are heard or if they are taken seriously? I believe that God takes seriously everything that we do, especially those things directed to him. I wanted to "give this week in prayer", and ask Heaven Father to "be thou my vision" and guide my footsteps as I journey this week. You are invited too !!

Nothing worth doing is completed in our lifetime; therefore, we are saved by hope. Nothing true or beautiful or good makes complete sense in any immediate context of history; therefore, we are saved by faith. Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone; therefore, we are saved by love. No virtuous act is quite as virtuous from the standpoint of our friend or foe as from our own; therefore, we are saved by the final form of love, which is forgiveness.
