Salpointe Weekly Peek - September 8, 2023

Happy Friday, Lancers!

Dear Glorious Father, I pray that I will stay focused on you today. I pray that You will constantly remind me to be content in all of my circumstances. I pray that You will fill me up that I may be joyful all day, even if stress creeps in. I know that through my contentment, You will be glorified. I want to honor You, Father, in all that I do. I praise Your Holy Name. Amen. Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Pray for us.
