Hello, Father.
Thank you for so much progress on many fronts, even though so many Unknowns still loom ahead. I appreciate the stability and peace you have provided, and I ask you to continue to bless the people and relationships here that are all somewhat stressed under the changes and question marks. Please help each one of us to relax and trust YOU, to look to you for our strength and our patience with each other. Please guide each of us in your will for us, and help us to allow you time to bear fruit in each others’ and our own lives. Amen.

 
John 15:1-8 ERV

Jesus said, “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. 
He cuts off every branch of mine that does not produce fruit. He also trims every branch that produces fruit to prepare it to produce even more. 
You have already been prepared to produce more fruit by the teaching I have given you. 
Stay joined to me and I will stay joined to you. No branch can produce fruit alone. It must stay connected to the vine. It is the same with you. You cannot produce fruit alone. You must stay joined to me. 
“I am the vine, and you are the branches. If you stay joined to me, and I to you, you will produce plenty of fruit. But separated from me you won’t be able to do anything. 
If you don’t stay joined to me, you will be like a branch that has been thrown out and has dried up. All the dead branches like that are gathered up, thrown into the fire and burned. 
Stay joined together with me, and follow my teachings. If you do this, you can ask for anything you want, and it will be given to you. 
Show that you are my followers by producing much fruit. This will bring honor to my Father.
