And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. —Ezekiel 36:27
God knows the needs of His children, and He often works through us, prompting us to help one another. When we act on such promptings, we tread on holy ground, for we are allowed the opportunity to serve as an agent of God in answering a prayer. —Kathleen H. Hughes
