What would happen if we prayed this prayer everyday? Let's find out.
Help From John Wesley
“Now, that the recovery of the image of God, of this glorious liberty, of this perfect soundness, is the one thing needful upon earth, appears first from hence, that the enjoyment of them was the one end of our creation. For to this end was man created, to love God; and this end alone, even to love the Lord his God with all his heart, and soul, and mind, and strength. But love is the very image of God: it is the brightness of his glory.” Wesleys sermon "The One Thing Needful" (1734)
Psalm 1:1-2. Let us delight in the law of the Lord. The law of love.
Work heartily. No matter what. #discipleship #kingdomwork
Isaiah 43:19 Voice
 Watch closely: I am preparing something new; it's happening now, even as I speak, and you're about to see it. I am preparing a way through the desert; Waters will flow where there had been none.
