Rev. Annie Moore, Miracle Deliverance Prayer Temple Church spoke from Pslam 34: 1-7 in great details. She stated if we had the rear of the Lord we would not go through so much pain and suffering. When we are able to see another day, we should thank God. We should bless the Lord no matter what we are going through because our deliverance will come through. In closing Rev. Moore stated when God sets you free, you are free indeed.
