4.18.18 Praise & Prayer Prompt: God Doesn’t Get Lost

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• About 10 years ago, I got lost driving home from Chicago.

4.3.18 Praise Prompt: The Danger of the Undercurrent

PRAISE PROMPT ••• As Christians, we are instructed to live our lives in a way that reflects the love we have for our Lord and Savior. From a textbook understanding of that, it sounds easy.

2.28.18 Prayer Prompt: Time with Jesus

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Each night, I set six alarms to go off at various intervals between 5:10 and 5:45 AM, with all the snoozes in between. Getting up this early doesn’t come naturally for me, but through the encouragement of my alarm clock(s) and my groggy husband shaking my shoulder to please-get-up-and-turn-off-the-alarms, I’m usually up by 5:30/5:45ish. But most of all, my encouragement to get … Continue reading 2.28.18 Prayer Prompt: Time with Jesus

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.
