Dear Prayer Partners,

How good and pleasant it is when God's people live together in unity!

For there the Lord bestows his blessing, even life forevermore. Psalm 133

As I drove to work one morning, I was reminded that the people I work with are important, not just the tasks I must accomplish. Showing interest in the lives of my co-workers promotes unity! And from there God pours out His blessing.

Through your prayers in May we desire to see God's blessing, resulting in people turning to Jesus as their hope.
