Prayer Focus - Patience and Trust while waiting on God
Isaiah 40:31 “Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.” New American Standard
There will be times when we will become fainthearted and shouldn’t rely on our own strength to overcome this emotion when it happens. We are promised God’s help to strengthen us when we are obedient and patient to wait for it.

Chickpeas, Kidney, black, pinto and most other varieties of beans contain high amounts of protein per serving. They are also excellent sources of complex carbs, fiber, iron, folate, phosphorus, potassium, manganese and several beneficial plant compounds.
Studies show that eating good amounts of beans helps to reduce cholesterol, blood sugar levels, lower blood pressure and reduce belly fat.
Add a dash of chili pepper or turmeric for added health benefits. And, instead of spreading mayo on your sandwich try your favorite hummus.
