PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• I am going to play the role of Captain Obvious this morning: friends are important. We need each other.

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• I’m reading a book called “Handle with Prayer,” by Charles Stanley. He wrote, “Our prayers are the link between God’s inexhaustible resources and people’s needs.” Woah.
