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
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.

Please pray though, not only for the victims but for the shooter too. So many lives affected and for what?

PRAYER PROMPT ••• This weekend, I fell victim to the social media time-sucking feature that allows minutes to turn into hours, unintentionally spent watching penguins trip on ice, saving recipes we’re never going to make, or sorting through our friend’s vacation pictures. For me, it was a ten-minute article that highlighted people who went to exceptional lengths to impress others, only to be caught in … Continue reading 2.13.18 Prayer Prompt: Pride and Insecurity
