“It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.” Psalm 127:2

Ours is not a life of anxious care but of happy faith. Our heavenly Father will supply the wants of His own children, and He knoweth what we have need of before we ask Him. We may therefore go to our beds at the proper hour and not wear ourselves out by sitting up late to plot, and plan, and contrive. If we have learned to rely upon our God, we shall not lie awake with fear gnawing at our hearts; but we shall leave our care with the LORD, our meditation of Him shall be sweet, and He will give us refreshing sleep.

To be the Lord’s beloved is the highest possible honour, and he who has it may feel that ambition itself could desire no more, and therefore every selfish wish may go to sleep. What more is there even in heaven than the love of God? Rest, then, O soul, for thou hast all things. Yet we toss to and fro unless the LORD Himself gives us not only the reasons for rest but rest itself. Yea, He doth this. Jesus Himself is our peace, our rest, our all, On His bosom we sleep in perfect security, both in life and in death. – C.H. Spurgeon

Sprinkled afresh with pardoning blood,

I lay me down to rest

As in the embraces of my God,

Or on my Saviour’s breast.

The Children's Catechism

Q9. How did man fall from his state in which he was created?
A. By disobeying God.

The Shorter Catechism

Q9. What is the work of creation?

A. The work of creation is, Gods making all things of nothing¹, by the word of his power², in the space of six days, and all very good.³

1. In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. (Genesis 1:1).

2. Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. (Hebrews 11:3).

3. And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. (Genesis 1:31).

  • That the Sosa family would be a good example and guide in their community of Los Frailes and that they would enjoy good health.
  • For the discipleship program, that the Lord would confirm the Word that is preached in the community.
  • For the outreach in the community and that they would be a light in Los Frailes and in the greater Santo Domingo area.
  • For the Lord to raise up men in the church.
  • For the Lord to provide for the financial needs of the Sosa family.
