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 

10.10.17 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

7.29.17 Prayer Prompt: Walk With Jesus

PRAYER PROMPT ••• As you prepare to go about your day, you undoubtedly have a routine you go through before you leave the house.  Comb your hair, brush your teeth, get your keys, lock the door, etc.  As you prepare to start the car, you probably have a routine for that too.  Situate your purse / stuff, adjust the seat, put on your seatbelt, etc.  … Continue reading 7.29.17 Prayer Prompt: Walk With Jesus

7.8.17 Prayer Prompt: Employment 

PRAYER PROMPT ••• When people say, “I hate my job,” I cringe.  Seriously – it’s a major pet peeve of mine.  Those who know me might say, “Easy for you to say, Denise. You love your job.”  Yes, I do, but this isn’t the only job I’ve ever had!  I get having a bad day at work; I get not liking some of the things … Continue reading 7.8.17 Prayer Prompt: Employment 

7.3.17 Prayer Prompt: Open or Closed – Praise Him Anyway

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Doors open and close; we use them to go in and go out.  They are ordinary, yet deeply symbolic; they represent profound possibilities.  The Apostle Paul wrote to the Colossians while in prison, “At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ,” (Colossians 4:3a).  A literal … Continue reading 7.3.17 Prayer Prompt: Open or Closed – Praise Him Anyway
