Luke 2:12-13   Lord Jesus, you deserve all the glory. Thank you for your promise of peace and favor to all people. We ask that you open the eyes of the people of Qatar to experience that peace and favor.

Doubt

A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, ?Peace be with you! ?

The Fruit of the Spirit

?Prayer is nourished and flourishes when it is firmly rooted in the creative and redemptive word of the living God.? ?
