10.21.17 Prayer Prompt: Constant Prayer 

PRAYER PROMPT ••• This morning is our third and final installment in the review of Romans 12:12. We’ve broken the verse down into “rejoice in hope,” “be patient in tribulation,” and today is “be constant in prayer.”  Prayer is the ongoing, never ending conversation that we have with God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.  It’s our direct line of communication.  And like … Continue reading 10.21.17 Prayer Prompt: Constant Prayer 

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

10.10.17 Prayer Prompt: Pause, Praise, & Pray

PRAYER PROMPT ••• This is the first year I’ve ever chosen a word as a theme.  My word is “selah.”  It has been my focal word. “Selah” is used at the end of various psalms, but Biblical scholars aren’t 100% sure what it means.  When I was researching it, I found an article on GotQuestions.org and this excerpt is a large part of why I … Continue reading 10.10.17 Prayer Prompt: Pause, Praise, & Pray

10.9.17 Prayer Prompt: Likes, Loves, and Approval

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Yesterday, my pastor spoke about living with less and he mentioned cell phone addictions.  He quoted a study that said that the average person looks at his or her smartphone every 4.5 minutes.  Guilty.  I wish I’d added this statistic to a recent article I wrote on the three things we crave from social media.  But all this ties together with a … Continue reading 10.9.17 Prayer Prompt: Likes, Loves, and Approval

9.4.17 Prayer Prompt: From Nevermore to Forevermore

PRAYER PROMPT ••• As much as I love to read, with a few exceptions, I’m not a fan of poetry.  But from my short list of exceptions, Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” is my favorite.  Arguably Poe’s most famous work, most of us are familiar with the depressing “Nevermore,” the raven says over and over as the narrator speculates on his grief of Lenore and … Continue reading 9.4.17 Prayer Prompt: From Nevermore to Forevermore

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Jesus said, “And he said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” (Mark 16:15)  Then, Paul wrote, “we endure anything rather than put an obstacle in the way of the gospel of Christ…I do it all for the sake of the gospel, that I may share with them in its blessings.” (1 Corinthians 9:12b, 23)  … Continue reading 7.23.17 Prayer Prompt: Share the Gospel and Be a Part of the Body

5.29.17 Prayer Prompt: Memorial Day

PRAYER PROMPT ••• It’s Memorial Day, and all over America, people will be celebrating a day off work, eating hotdogs and hamburgers, with only a passing acknowledgement of the purpose of the holiday.  A day set aside as a day of remembrance for those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom.  John 15:13 says, “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay … Continue reading 5.29.17 Prayer Prompt: Memorial Day
