             Prayer:       Just as the disciples cried out in the middle of the storm,
                               into which Jesus had led them, help me during this time of
                               transition and change to seek your face and hear your voice
                               above all the noise of the storm.  Increase my faith and

                                decrease my fear.

                                You are, Jesus.  Help me to see what I have not been able to
                                see before.  And I like the man born blind, I will give Jesus 
                                all the glory for what He alone can and will do.  "One thing I
