For the second time, a woman named Joyce came to the door today, asking for prayer. Due to a church's generosity, she and her kids are staying at an apartment down the road. Her husband's court date (for domestic violence) is scheduled this week. Her grandchild, Jeremy, is in the hospital with heart trouble. Also, her own health is having difficulties, some of which stem from abuse. Yet Joyce's smile covers her face; her faith in Christ is encouraging. It is our privilege to be able to join her in prayer, asking our compassionate God to offer strength and mercy.
