1.21.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: A Change of Heart

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• I’ve had a lifelong aversion to onions that was so extreme, if I ordered a salad I could tell if the prep knife had been used on an onion. If I could taste even the faintest flavor of onion, I’d push the whole salad or meal away. Then one day, inexplicably, I ordered a pizza and didn’t ask them to … Continue reading 1.21.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: A Change of Heart

1.14.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: The Then vs Now Challenge

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• So have you seen the Then vs Now Age Challenge on Facebook? The instructions are simple: post your first profile picture and your most recent.

But even more … Continue reading 1.14.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: The Then vs Now Challenge

2.25.18 Prayer Prompt: The Miracle of Grace

PRAYER PROMPT ••• I love the word “grace.” It’s a simple word with a variety of meanings. The definition we focus on is “the free and unmerited favor of God, as manifested in the salvation of sinners and the bestowal of blessings.” It’s the grace described in Ephesians 2:8-9 that inspired the name of this website. And you can barely hear the word without thinking … Continue reading 2.25.18 Prayer Prompt: The Miracle of Grace

2.21.18 Prayer Prompt: When We Want Our Rainbow

PRAYER PROMPT ••• I don’t like to wait.  There was a reason God put the word “timing” on my heart for this year’s focal word!  Combine my impatience with my tendency to “fix it,” and there’s no doubt I cause God to facepalm Himself often.  I’m bad about running ahead of Him, ready to get that prayer request answered and cross that consequence off the … Continue reading 2.21.18 Prayer Prompt: When We Want Our Rainbow
