April’s Memory Verse:
Teach me your way oh Lord and I will walk in truth. Give me an undivided heart that I may fear your name. I will praise you oh Lord my God with all of my heart, I will glorify your name forever, for great is your love towards me. You have delivered me from the depths of the grave. -Psalms 86:11-13, track 11 “Undivided Heart”, Seeds of Praise cd
