Let's be partners in prayer to have the best lifetime partner for you and me...the best from our great Creator...our good God...our Heavenly Father! ( Matthew 7:9-11 “Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!)
