I wanted to share his beautiful prayer with all of you:
Thank you for this day, this church, and these people. We also thank you for our world and all of creation.
We thank you for the opportunity to come together and worship you.
We humbly beg your assistance in resisting sin and temptation of all sorts.
We request your help for those of us and everyone who are lonely or suffering.
We ask all of this in the name of your son, Jesus Christ.
This beautiful and heartfelt prayer was given by Sam, standing up in front of about 100 people! Those of you who know Sam know that this is quite the accomplishment as he's so painfully shy. But he did it, did it beautifully, and I'm so proud of him that I'm bursting at the seams. :)
