I will sing of the lord’s great love forever; with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations.
I will declare that your love stands firm forever, that you established your faithfulness in heaven itself.

Pray that God will continue to bring in PHC student applicants for fall 2000. More...

Pray that construction of the PHC main building and dormitories will stay on schedule for September occupancy. More...

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all Understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6–7
