He executes justice for the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free, the LORD gives sight to the blind, he lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves those who live justly. The LORD watches over the immigrant and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked. -Psalm 146:7-9

1. As a ministry we would always strive to make the Lord's name famous and not our own. All Glory to Him for all the great things that are being accomplished on Montgomery's Westside through Common Ground Montgomery.
2. Before you pray for our safety and the safety of our kids in this "dangerous" neighborhood, would you first pray that Christ name would be magnified, that God's kingdom would advance here, and that as a staff we would preach the gospel with BOLDNESS!
3.That our marriages and children would always be our first priority and that we would guard our times with them well!
