PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• The beginning of Exodus 15 starts with a song of Moses.

4.16.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: The Fire at the Notre Dame

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• Yesterday’s headline news was the fire at Notre Dame. The history nerd in me is beyond sad about it.

4.12.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Sin & Grace

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• Romans 3:23 says, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God…” We know this verse. We believe this verse. But do we personalize this verse? Do we ask, “What is sin?” Because we don’t talk about it a lot. And I’m guilty of it too… I don’t write about sin very much. It’s an uncomfortable topic … Continue reading 4.12.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Sin & Grace
