For the streets…
PRAISE!!! …for the amount of volunteers and people who came out to White as Snow. We didn’t do a whole lot of laundry, but a lot of great conversations and connections were made.
Prayer…that God would really speak to people and change lives. So many people know about him but are living contradictory to what they know and “believe”. Pray that lives on the blvd would really change!

“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.”
I Peter 2:9-10
