March 2 – We came together Wednesday evening at Caney to praise, worship and study God’s word. We started with congregational singing. Bro. Jack Essary welcomed everyone to service. Prayer reports and praise reports were given. Sis. Lila Roberts led in a prayer. Jack read James 5:5-20. You will be judged by God for your sins. The power of prayer will change you. Your sins can be forgiven and your body healed. The Lord Jesus Christ will lead you when you pray. Prayer is a terrific tool, use it every day. It was a good thought and wonderful scriptures were given in our discussion. We wish you could have been here. We know you’d enjoy it and learn with us.
