This week’s focus: God, revive us so we burn hot for You. Give us singleness of heart and action that we may always fear You and follow Your precepts. Open our minds to Your Word and set our hearts ablaze within us. Give us an insatiable hunger and thirst for more of You. Family & Student Switcheroo!
