Genesis 2:19-24


We're reading in Genesis Chapter Number 2, beginning with verse 18 and reading through verse 24. 18 Then the Lord God said,'' It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a help mate for him.''

For this is our prayer, made in the strong, holy name of Jesus Christ, our living Saviour and Lord. Amen
