4.4.18 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Doors

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• Doors: they close and lock to protect us. They also open up to invite family and friends. They aren’t complicated; they do what you expect them to do.

If anyone enters by me, he will … Continue reading 4.4.18 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Doors

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

2.20.18 Prayer Prompt: Tell Others About Jesus

12.15.17 Prayer Prompt: Giving

PRAYER PROMPT ••• First, I want to thank y’all for praying for me yesterday.  A trip to the DMV shouldn’t be a big deal, but I was waaaay overdue for some updates, so I dreaded the process.  Thankfully, my license is renewed, and I am good to go for eight more years.  Thank you!  Today, let’s talk about giving.  It’s a topic on everyone’s mind … Continue reading 12.15.17 Prayer Prompt: Giving
