Small beginnings

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 ESV
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.

Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name in the Mississippi Delta.
You rejoiced to see the work on the temple begin, to see the plumbline in Zerubbabel’s hand. Teach the Christians of the Delta not to despise small beginnings. May they guard their hearts and the hearts of their children above all else, for the heart determines the course of their lives.
Coahoma County has the highest homicide rate and teenage pregnancy rate in the state. There are so many problems–fatherlessness, gang rivalries, and poverty. We give thanks for the Christians that live in Coahoma County. May they glorify You in their bodies. Help them to steward thankful hearts, even in the face of troubles. Amen.
Proverbs 4:23, Zechariah 4:10
