10.23.17 Prayer Prompt: Sin On Repeat

PRAYER PROMPT ••• After nine years as a writer for my community magazines, I’m used to getting confused about dates.  I write about Christmas during Halloween; Valentine’s Day during Christmas; Back to School during Fourth of July.  I tend to think a few months ahead and often have to remember which month it actually is.  However, it seems I just went through the opposite issue.  … Continue reading 10.23.17 Prayer Prompt: Sin On Repeat

10.22.17 Prayer Prompt: Stand Straight; Declare with Confidence 

PRAYER PROMPT ••• I think I have a favorite new Psalm.  I read Psalms 91-92 this morning and there is so much wisdom and insight packed into these chapters.  Not sure how I failed to notice before, other than sometimes it takes us several read-throughs before we “get it.”  Or probably more accurately, God knew today was a day when I could benefit from a … Continue reading 10.22.17 Prayer Prompt: Stand Straight; Declare with Confidence

10.19.17 Prayer Prompt: Expectation

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Our key verse for today is Romans 12:12 says, “Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.”  The verse is such a perfect summation of what we need to do as we walk with Christ.  Let’s start with hope and do a little verse-mapping.  Hope, of course, is a feeling of expectation and desire.   Romans 15:13 says, “May the … Continue reading 10.19.17 Prayer Prompt: Expectation

10.18.17 Prayer Prompt: Don’t Give Up

PRAYER PROMPT ••• People don’t like to wait.  I am no exception.  I was well-into my adult years when I finally confessed a childhood secret to my mother…  That I used to unwrap and rewrap all my Christmas and birthday presents ahead of time.  Needless to say, she was shocked.  But my grandmother was the one person who wasn’t surprised my admission.  Mamo was one … Continue reading 10.18.17 Prayer Prompt: Don’t Give Up

10.17.17 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 10.17.17 Prayer Prompt: Socializing Our Faith
