This devotional, even if only for 5 short minutes, is a way for you and our entire Stanwich community to draw near to our Lord and Savior.

Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!
God can intervene in struggles in many ways, but the ignition point is to acknowledge your plight. This verse represents exactly what happened for me: "And call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall honor me." I call it "God's 3 step program" Ask, Receive, Act.
Food For Thought
"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks, it will be opened...."
Why do so many feel too powerless to ask, seek, and find? The prayer can be as simple as saying, "Have mercy on me, a sinner!" (Luke 18:13) Perhaps some do not ask because they do not want to acknowledge the true condition of their heart and soul.
