Dear Heavenly Father,
How we praise and thank you for this day. Thank you for your mercy and grace that is new everyday. Thank you for all the words “heard around Hope Street” this week. Thank you that Hope Street is a place where people can be fannnn-tastic, can slow down, can meet people who show honor, valor, might and loyalty, can sit and make ornaments when they thought they were going to leave, can be thankful for just being, can be family when the color of their skin is different. Holy Spirit, wash over the men, women, and children that call Hope Street HOME. Call them closer to you in ways in which only YOU can.
You’re awesome and I love you.
