2.23.18 Prayer Prompt: Compassion Instead

PRAYER PROMPT ••• A writer from Teen Vogue made the news yesterday for her horrible comments about the death of Billy Graham. Last week, it was Joy Behar’s “mental illness” comment in regards to Mike Pence’s faith. This stuff makes me mad! The world is open and accepting of everyone except a committed Christian. I want to go on a tirade about it, but whenever … Continue reading 2.23.18 Prayer Prompt: Compassion Instead

2.22.18 Prayer Prompt: Homecoming in Heaven

PRAYER PROMPT ••• “My home is in Heaven. I’m just traveling through this world.”  Billy Graham is home, after 99 years.  He was one of the most influential evangelists to ever live and in 2008, it was estimated that he had preached to over 2.2 billion people, through live crusades, TV, and radio.  Can you imagine?  Billion.  Not million.  I can’t even wrap my brain … Continue reading 2.22.18 Prayer Prompt: Homecoming in Heaven

2.21.18 Prayer Prompt: When We Want Our Rainbow

PRAYER PROMPT ••• I don’t like to wait.  There was a reason God put the word “timing” on my heart for this year’s focal word!  Combine my impatience with my tendency to “fix it,” and there’s no doubt I cause God to facepalm Himself often.  I’m bad about running ahead of Him, ready to get that prayer request answered and cross that consequence off the … Continue reading 2.21.18 Prayer Prompt: When We Want Our Rainbow

2.20.18 Prayer Prompt: Tell Others About Jesus

PRAYER PROMPT ••• In Mark 5, there is a story of Jesus ordering legions of demons out of a man and into pigs.  (One of the best sermons I’ve ever heard on it was by my friend, Kelly K. He wrote about this particular story of Jesus in his upcoming book, “Reckless Love Revolution,” and I encourage you to look into it.)  After Jesus delivered … Continue reading 2.20.18 Prayer Prompt: Tell Others About Jesus

2.19.18 Prayer Prompt: When Prayer Takes Us To Our Needs

PRAYER PROMPT ••• We had a speaker at church yesterday who preached a dynamic sermon on getting back to basics.  He used Romans 12:12 as a primary point (“Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.”)  I was writing sermon notes as he talked and when he got to the part about praying, he spoke of going to our knees.  … Continue reading 2.19.18 Prayer Prompt: When Prayer Takes Us To Our Needs

2.18.18 Prayer Prompt: God’s Promises

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Last night, my husband and I had dinner with some friends from church and the discussion turned to spiritual matters.  It really turned into a celebration of God’s faithfulness.  From the promises He keeps about saving all those who ask; to the promises to be with us in the middle of all life’s storms; and the promises to work out all things … Continue reading 2.18.18 Prayer Prompt: God’s Promises

2.17.18 Prayer Prompt: Faith Growth

PRAYER PROMPT ••• What does it take to grow as a Christian?  Last night, a friend posted a question about Bible studies.  I answered her with my opinion (because y’all know I always have one of those!), and said, “Your Bible study is such a personal time between you and God…do what works for you and whatever is growing your personal walk with Jesus.”  As … Continue reading 2.17.18 Prayer Prompt: Faith Growth
