8.17.17 Prayer Prompt: Socializing Our Faith

PRAYER PROMPT ••• A friend called me yesterday about Facebook.  She had learned about the “Top Stories” vs “Most Recent” feature and said she only saw My Grace-Full Life posts when she switched to Most Recent or went looking for it.  I understand her frustration; I’ve been managing pages since 2009 and have a love-hate relationship with Facebook. (See below for tips!)  However, social media … Continue reading 8.17.17 Prayer Prompt: Socializing Our Faith

8.16.17 Prayer Prompt: Childlike Faith

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Nothing exemplifies trust more than the image of a child holding the hand of the one who cares for them.  It’s an image of innocence and utter dependence.  I’ve been thinking about the childlike faith Jesus spoke of in Matthew 18:3-4, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever … Continue reading 8.16.17 Prayer Prompt: Childlike Faith

8.15.17 Prayer Prompt: Balancing Act

PRAYER PROMPT ••• It is hard to maintain a life balance.  Between church, family, friends, work, personal health, and hobbies – the juggling act is real.  My husband and I are big fans of the TV show, “The Office,” and in one episode, Michael Scott says, “I mark [memos] as Urgent A, Urgent B, Urgent C, Urgent D. Urgent A is the most important. Urgent … Continue reading 8.15.17 Prayer Prompt: Balancing Act

8.14.17 Prayer Prompt: The Future

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Like many, I occasionally look to the weather app on my phone to see what I can expect for the day.  But more often, I use my own judgment when I let the dogs outside.  Hot? Cold? Rainy? Humid?  I let the early morning weather set the stage for how I will dress for the day.  A week or so ago, I … Continue reading 8.14.17 Prayer Prompt: The Future

10.13.17 Prayer Prompt: Encouragement and Revival

PRAYER PROMPT ••• There’s a church up the street from my house that I drive by every time I go in and out of my neighborhood.  It’s a fairly small, nondescript Baptist church, but yesterday, I noticed they had a sign announcing their upcoming revival.  Oh how well I remember revival services growing up.  I went to a private school and though my family and … Continue reading 10.13.17 Prayer Prompt: Encouragement and Revival

10.12.17 Prayer Prompt: Does Your Faith Make a Noise?

PRAYER PROMPT ••• When I was a teenager, there was a “brain-teaser” (not sure what else to call it) that said this: “If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?”  Do you remember this?  I don’t hear it as often as I did back then (pun intended), but every blue moon, the question … Continue reading 10.12.17 Prayer Prompt: Does Your Faith Make a Noise?

10.11.17 Prayer Prompt: When Praying Turns to Fretting 

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Hello, my name is Denise and I’m a control freak.  Delegating doesn’t come easy for me; I prefer to do things on my own.  If you know me personally, you’re probably thinking, “Thanks for pointing that out, Captain Obvious.”  But God opened my eyes with a serious truth-bomb last night and He’s reiterated it this morning.  My prayers haven’t been rooted in … Continue reading 10.11.17 Prayer Prompt: When Praying Turns to Fretting
