It will nev- er come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing against your legs and jumping into your lap"—William Bennett. This week, PAWS is fea- turing a lively young cat named Jellybean, who has a well-defined character, is generally sociable, inquis- itive, invincible at play and gets a little too boisterous on occasion. She is multi- colored white and gray, with tabby-colored stripes mixed with the abstract imagination of a painter. Jellybean is approxi- mately six months old and can be adopted by calling 812-354-9894.

Even for an aged Chris- tian, this can be a hard task to tackle. Having hope and being patient in your time of trouble, coupled with con- tinuing to pray even when you feel you receive no an- swer, is hard enough. Not to mention to let this make you glad. Well let's just say it is a stretch for even the most faithful and devout. If you can find that strength though and hope in God, he will always be there with you. Find that strength and peace in Christ Jesus by knowing that he will always take care of your needs if all you do is pray and ask. God bless you and keep you. We welcome you to all services. Come and worship Jesus with us. See our Facebook page Glezen Revival Center.

The latter portion of Gen- esis 22:17's blessing from God to Abraham's descen- dants, which includes Be- lievers in Christ, says "And your seed shall possess the gate of their enemies." Our flesh and the devil are enemies, not people. The gates within are the ones needing conquered. Why not take possession of our own gates through Christ and the Word? Jesus has al- ready conquered them, if we accept in faith and follow His lead with the aid of the Ho- ly Spirit. Denny Wiscaver, Pastor Kimberly Flynn, Reporter LIVING BY GR ACE 511 S.

As I laid back into the water, I could feel the water rising closer and closer to my mouth and nose until finally fear would over- take me and I would stand up. With my feet securely on the bottom, I felt in control again. It was just so hard to relax in that water and give up control, trusting that the water would hold me up. But, the more I practiced, OTWELL CONTENDERS OF FAITH Sunday school 9:30 a.m.; worship 10 :30 a.m.; evening worship 6:30 p.m.; Wednes- day prayer and Bible study meeting 6:30 p.m. William Breidenbaugh, Pastor PETERSBURG HOLINESS CHURCH Pastor 419-340- 5500 (C) Parsonage 812- THE CHURCH ALIVE WORSHIP CENTER 506 N. 9th St. Petersburg Pastor 812-354-6897 Service times: Sunday morning praise and wor- ship 10 a.m.; children's Sun- day school 11 a.m.; Wednes- TWIN OAKS CHURCH 1911 E.

Prayer fuels faith to dream and hope and risk. 2. Prayer woos us to the Word by our need to hear God's response to our re- quests. 3. Prayer teaches trust in God by waiting upon His tim- ing. 4. Prayer releases God's power to live and walk in the supernatural realm of the Holy Spirit. 5. Prayer reveals God's plan and our purpose in opening up to us detailed di- rections for both the present and the future. 6. Prayer unleashes love for God-emotional, real, and all consuming. Chad Searls, Pastor day night praise and worship and Bible study 7 p.m. I hope God will see you at church somewhere. Mark Davis, Pastor amazed at all the things peo- ple do to try to help them- selves; various treatments, self help books, clinics, their own reasonings, and when all these things fail, they can't understand it. At one time, I also pursued these things, then Jesus came and everything changed. Human beings are always looking for answers to their problems. And Christ is the answer. Nothing ever presented to us is insolvable if we look to Christ for guidance, but if we lean upon our own un- derstanding, we will certain- ly go astray. Many will sim- ply not lay down their pride and take Him as their Sav- ior, but instead, continue in the same old thing, with the same old results. If you are facing any dif- ficulty and cannot see a way out, may I share with you from my own experi- ence, that Jesus Christ has an answer to your problem. Seek Him, stay with Him, obey Him, walk after Him, and your life will ever be changed for the better. God Bless You, Gene Burkhart, Pastor
