The Lord Will Stay with Us

I have written on many occasions in these devotions about the blessings I have received from our early Morning Prayer line.  I know that I am not alone, for I have heard constantly how others who are part of the prayer line have received many blessings.  Through the power of prayer, we have watched God…
