Jesus is your LORD.
“Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears us up; God is our salvation. Selah.” Psalm 68:19
The wildflowers are in full bloom! The images below were taken near the overlook on top of our mountain. We are thankful to partake in such beauty here at The Cove in Asheville, North Carolina.
“Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.”
Friends, be blessed by God’s work on our mountaintop. The Trillium have bloomed and the birds are singing a beautiful song!

We come to You in the Name that is above every name—Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Our hearts cry out to You.
Knowing that You are a prayer-answering, faithful God—the One we trust in times like these—we ask that You renew our spirits, revive our churches, and heal our land.
We repent of our sins and ask for Your grace and power to save us. Hear our cry, oh God, and pour out Your Spirit upon us that we may walk in obedience to Your Word.
We are desperate for Your tender mercies. We are broken and humbled before You.
Forgive us, and in the power of Your great love, lift us up to live in Your righteousness.
We pray for our beloved nation. May we repent and return to You and be a light to the nations. And we pray for our leaders and ask that You give them wisdom and faith to follow You.
Preserve and protect us, for You are our refuge and only hope.
Deliver us from all fears except to fear You, and may we courageously stand in the Truth that sets us free.
We pray with expectant faith and grateful hearts.
In Jesus’ name, our Savior.

We’ve got some serious prayer warriors that work and volunteer here at The Cove. This is Betty who celebrated her 92nd birthday this week.
Betty has volunteered at The Chatlos Memorial Chapel & Visitors Center here at The Cove for 26 years! When she first started volunteering, she gave tours to our visitors. Betty is now faithfully volunteering every Friday–dedicated to praying for our visitors, guests, fellow volunteers and staff.
When this picture was taken, Betty had already prayed for 481 people. No, that’s not a typo–four hundred eighty one–all covered in prayer before noon! How does she keep track? She makes a check next to their name or on their prayer request card and keeps a running tally.
At 92, Betty is sweet, sharp as a tack and quick witted. If you are visiting us on a Friday morning, make sure to stop by and say hello to her.
Fun fact: Betty earned 12 varsity letters while in high school.
