Theme: Are we following true or false prophets?
Let us ask God to help us understand what He is saying to us today with this little prayer line from the Eastern Liturgies.
"Heavenly King, Comforter, Spirit of Truth, Who are everywhere present and fill all things, Treasury of Blessings and Giver of Life, come and increase Your presence within us, cleanse us of all stain (our sins) and save us, O gracious Lord."
