A Snippet of Reformed Doctrine
Q. 193. For what do we pray in the Fourth request?
A . In the fourth request (Give us today, our daily bread1), we acknowledge that in Adam and by our own sin we have forfeited any right to all of the outward blessings of this life, that we deserve to be completely deprived of them by God and to have their use by us cursed,2 and that the outward blessings of this life are not in and of themselves capable of sustaining us,3 nor do we deserve4 or actually obtain them by our own efforts,5 but lust after,6 acquire,7 and use them in unlawful ways.8We pray then for ourselves and others that both they and we may wait daily on God’s providential allowance of the outward blessings of this life and that, according to what his fatherly wisdom decides is best, we may lawfully enjoy his free gift of what is sufficient for us.9We also pray that God would continue to bless us with sufficient worldly goods, that they would sustain our needs and be sanctified by us,10 that we would be satisfied with them,11 and that God would protect us from anything that undermines our support and sustenance in this world.12

MARK YOUR CALENDARS
The theme this summer is Galactic Starveyors. This VBS reignites children's sense of discovery and exploration as they marvel at the wonders of the starry sky. Most of all, they gaze toward the God who created the universe and everything in it. They will learn that He wants to have a personal relationship with them.
We will need lots of volunteers to make this another Fairview success! Please see Valerie Petrie for more information or tell her of your ability to help create and decorate, make snacks, teach a lesson, lead songs, wrangled children, play games or act crazy with our awesome kids! This is a wonderful outreach and a wonderful way to serve our community and our Lord.
Come on into the clubhouse and show kids that God is over the moon in love with them!
