Psalm 20; Genesis 12:1-7; Hebrews 11:1-12
By Joyce Hanson

Psalm 20:  A Prayer for the Gods help and assurance.
The book of Psalms is a collection of “common prayers” with one purpose – to give us words to say before God.

Genesis 12:1-7:  God Calls Abram
God promised Abram that many nations would come from his descendants. Abram believed God and obediently moved to an unknown land. Although old he obeyed the Lord’s Word even in famine.

Hebrews 11:1-12:  What is Faith?
These verses use Old Testament heroes to provide examples of faith and obedience to God. Faith is more than a belief in God. It is also a way of life. We must trust God and give our lives to him.

God Will Take Care of You
God will take care of you.
Thro’ every day o’er all the way.
He will take care of you: God will take care of you.
(By Civil D. Martin and W. Stillman Martin)
