Chapter 5 – The Sermon on the Mount
Story No. 18 of 29 (Matthew 6:25-34, Luke 12:22-32)

Lord Jesus, thank you for picking me up when I fall. Inspire me in ways to live a simple life, filled with your light.

the power of God protects me,
the presence of God watches over me,
wherever I am, God is,
and where God is, all is perfect.
