1.18.18 Prayer Prompt: More Jesus, Please

PRAYER PROMPT ••• The more I read the Bible, the more I want more stories about Jesus.  Verses like John 20:30 and John 21:25 make me crave more details: “The disciples saw Jesus do many other miraculous signs in addition to the ones recorded in this book.” and “Jesus also did many other things. If they were all written down, I suppose the whole world … Continue reading 1.18.18 Prayer Prompt: More Jesus, Please

1.11.18 Prayer Prompt: Prayer Walk

PRAYER PROMPT ••• As Christians, we often talk about walking with Jesus.  But part of that walk includes a prayer walk.  Sometimes, the prayer walk is a bit meandering.  You kind of walk from here to there, aimlessly, with no real direction in mind.  Other times, we walk confidently and boldly; it’s a power walk.  And other times (let’s be honest), we kick off our … Continue reading 1.11.18 Prayer Prompt: Prayer Walk

11.28.17 Prayer Prompt: The Dirty Word, “Accountability”

PRAYER PROMPT ••• There’s a word that has gone out of style in our culture.  It’s been missing, in both conversation and application, for quite a few years.  But that doesn’t mean it’s gone.  I am speaking, of course, about “accountability.”  Okay, a little tongue in cheek for first thing in the morning.  But doesn’t it seem like the truth?  For many, the concept of … Continue reading 11.28.17 Prayer Prompt: The Dirty Word, “Accountability”

11.26.17 Prayer Prompt: Praying for the Spiritually Blind

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Author Sandra Kring wrote, “When your heart is breaking for someone who is broken, but your words can’t reach them and your love can’t save them, ask the angels to go where you cannot. To whisper into their heart what their ears can’t hear: ‘We will not give up on you. Don’t give up on yourself.’”  Though I don’t believe in praying … Continue reading 11.26.17 Prayer Prompt: Praying for the Spiritually Blind

11.19.17 Prayer Prompt: The Toolbox

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Yesterday’s prayer prompt ended with a reference to our “toolbox,” so today, let’s dive into it.  Most toolboxes contain a hammer.  Do you ever find yourself needing to hammer in the same lesson more than once?  You just keep trying to get that nail of truth to drive home, but it won’t sink.  Prayer is the answer.  Jesus prayed in John 17:17 … Continue reading 11.19.17 Prayer Prompt: The Toolbox
