Heavenly Father, thank You for our lesson today. We ask that You would give each one doing this study a personal promise from Your Word today that they can hold on to. Like Abraham, we base our faith on Your promises, knowing that You are faithful and good, all the time. Fill us each overflowing with faith, hope and confidence in You, God of our fathers, God of our souls. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

the particular Scripture(s) or statement(s) that spoke to me were John 10:3-4
The Shepherd is constantly communicating with us....This verse also promises all who are God's sheep that they not only can but do hear His voice.
My prayer is that i set aside more time to connect with God through his word, worship, prayer and fasting...
