4.17.18 Praise & Prayer Prompt: The Strength & Weakness of Faith

4.9.18 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Always the Same

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• Facebook has been having a field day with weather memes. The one I saw yesterday said we were in a new season called “Sprinter,”—winter in spring.

2.27.18 Prayer Prompt: A Clear Faith

PRAYER PROMPT ••• I love my eye doctor. She’s amazing with a fun, down-to-earth personality. Plus, she helps me see which is huge. Since I turned 40, my eyes have gone a little haywire. They can’t decide exactly what they want to do, so on a few occasions, I’ve had to make in-between-appointments with her.
