                                                (by Doug Mannarino)

The Lord be with you.   And also with you.

Let us join our hearts and voices together in prayer...

Only you Father God can do this,Total forgiveness,Oh The things you brought Joseph through molding him, and You kept your promises He knew without a doubt you did it! Made his dreams come true Then Joseph let his brothers save face to their father. Telling them not to worry ,and not,to argue how they were going to explain this to Jacob.after al,l of not for God they all would be in a deep mess.There is no other God  like you Daddy .Thank you Jesus amen

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost;

as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,

World without end. AMEN.
