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 10.16.17 Prayer Prompt: Childlike Faith
PRAYER PROMPT ••• Have you ever had a passport? This little book holds great potential. It gives the authority to travel internationally and spend time in foreign countries.

We can use the analogy for any situation, … Continue reading 6.27.17 Prayer Prompt: Reap What You Sow
PRAYER PROMPT ••• The quote on today’s graphic is both true and poignant. We’ve all seen pictures of historical, ancient ruins; cities buried under centuries worth of dust and debris.

PRAYER PROMPT ••• I am terrified of butterflies. Anyone who knows me personally, who is reading, may wonder, “Who is this and what have they done to Denise? She would never intentionally pick a butterfly picture to illustrate her Prayer Prompt!” But it is me and yes, I chose it for a reason, though it was difficult to look through the inventory of butterfly images. … Continue reading 6.23.17 Prayer Prompt: Butterflies & Change
