Prayers For: There are many who desire and need prayer. Let’s continue to pray for them.

Food For Thought: What would you think if someone told you that you needed to endure a long, intense and difficult trial so that God could prune away some of the sin in your life. Who among us would willingly submit ourselves to those pruning shears? Jesus himself is the one who says that we need pruning. Jesus issued warnings to all of us who profess to be believers. Unfruitful branches are those who confess Christ but never bear fruit because they don’t genuinely remain in him. Pruning is painful but profitable. We need God’s help even to desire to yield ourselves to his pruning. May God bring people and events into our lives that will sanctify us so that we might bear true spiritual fruit for his glory.
