12.10.17 Prayer Prompt: Going the Same Direction as Jesus

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Yesterday’s Prayer Prompt was about living every moment for Jesus.  Today, let’s talk about walking with Him.  Amos 3:3 asks the question, “Can two people walk together without agreeing on the direction?”  The answer is, without question, no.  Ask any parent who has tried to walk in a mall or amusement park with a five-year-old.  It’s very hard to walk with someone … Continue reading 12.10.17 Prayer Prompt: Going the Same Direction as Jesus

12.1.17 Prayer Prompt: Peace on Earth

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Today is the first day of the last month of the year.  I feel like 2017 just started, but here we are, running out of year with another one ready to start.  2017 hasn’t been an easy year for many.  Beyond the acts of terrorism and violence that have made headlines, many have struggled with sickness, loss, and heartache.  It makes us … Continue reading 12.1.17 Prayer Prompt: Peace on Earth

11.5.17 Prayer Prompt: Serving God Through Our Work

PRAYER PROMPT ••• I’m a volunteer for Proverbs 31 Ministries and I serve in three areas of the ministry.  One of them gives me the opportunity to play with Excel spreadsheets.  If there’s anything I love to do as much as I love to read or write, it’s playing in Excel.  I love creating spreadsheets and organizing data.  If I can throw a pivot table … Continue reading 11.5.17 Prayer Prompt: Serving God Through Our Work

10.21.17 Prayer Prompt: Constant Prayer

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 

10.10.17 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

10.7.17 Prayer Prompt: Stand in Awe

PRAYER PROMPT ••• When was the last time you simply stood in awe of the Lord’s mighty power?  The one who set the boundaries of the ocean (Jeremiah 5:22)… the one who turns the earth and changes the seasons?  As I watch the leaves change color and drop, I’m in awe of the majesty of our Lord and Savior!  Colossians 1:16-17 says, “For by him … Continue reading 10.7.17 Prayer Prompt: Stand in Awe

10.6.17 Prayer Prompt: At the Crossroads

PRAYER PROMPT ••• There’s a very powerful image that comes when you think of crossroads.  Which path will you choose?  Robert Frost dedicated an entire poem about the choice between two paths (“The Road Not Taken”).  And (spoiler alert!), at the end of one of my favorite movies, “Castaway,” Tom Hanks stands at a crossroads: a place where he must make a choice in which … Continue reading 10.6.17 Prayer Prompt: At the Crossroads
