Quote to Consider
Charles D. Alexander: “Yet because it is never the purpose
of God that the end of all things should be capable of being
measured by inquisitive prognosticators (or even of pious
and troubled saints) the time lapse [of Rev. 10] is
presented in terms of long or short, which at one and the
same time assure the troubled church that her trials have an
appointed end and that her times are already measured and
weighed in the exact time cycles of the sanctuary”
(Revelation Spiritually Understood, p. 217).

“Pray one for another.” Pray for Eunice Murray who is unable
to worship with us due to her multiple sclerosis. Remember
Sinead who has chronic fatigue and whose husband recently
had a stroke. Pray for the elderly in the congregation who
struggle with the infirmities of old age. Remember Timothy
at university in S. Wales. There are others who due to
sickness or works of necessity or mercy miss services on the
Lord Day. Pray that our covenant God will keep them strong
in the faith. Pray for the parents as they raise their
children in the fear of the Lord. “The effectual fervent
prayer of a righteous man availeth much” (James 5:16).
