John 6:5-7 (NKJV)
Then Jesus lifted up His eyes, and seeing a great multitude coming toward Him, He said to Philip, “Where shall we buy bread, that these may eat?” But this He said to test him, for He Himself knew what He would do. Philip answered Him, “Two hundred denarii worth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may have a little.”

Jesus, thank you that I get to be in the supply chain of your work and ministry.

Father, thank you that my sins are covered by the blood of Jesus and that you remember them no more.

Holy Spirit, help me hold fast to my confession of faith.

Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Bring me to lasting renewal, Jesus.
