“I live in a high and holy place, but also with those who are contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and the revive the heart of the contrite.”
Isaiah 57v15
We encourage everyone who is praying for UMN not only to raise our requests but to listen to God on UMN’s behalf. Please take time to read this Bible verse slowly to yourself. Pause and ask God to speak through His Word. Then read it slowly again. Settle and calm your mind before you pray.
