1.17.18 Prayer Prompt: Your Forecast

PRAYER PROMPT ••• I really don’t like it when the weatherman’s predictions about snow come true.  But unfortunately, the forecast was accurate.  Everyone on Facebook has been obsessively comparing notes about the weather and what each weatherman is predicting.  I think it’s natural to want to know what’s coming.  Life is unpredictable, and it’s important to be flexible enough to go with the curveballs.  But … Continue reading 1.17.18 Prayer Prompt: Your Forecast

1.14.18 Prayer Prompt: Trusting God

PRAYER PROMPT ••• The future holds many things: fear, uncertainty, and doubt, to name a few.  It also holds potential joy, but it’s not as natural for us to look at the horizon and see that possibility.  It’s easier to brace for a traumatic impact rather than run face-first into the unknown.  King David wrote in Psalm 139:16, “You saw me before I was born. … Continue reading 1.14.18 Prayer Prompt: Trusting God

11.24.17 Prayer Prompt: The Love of Jesus

PRAYER PROMPT ••• If you grew up in Sunday School, you might remember the children’s song, “Jesus Loves the Little Children.”  It was a bouncy little tune, and the chorus lyrics are, “Jesus loves the little children / All the children of the world / Black and yellow, red and white / They’re all precious in His sight / Jesus loves the little children of … Continue reading 11.24.17 Prayer Prompt: The Love of Jesus

11.15.17 Prayer Prompt: Seek and Find

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Have you ever heard the phrase, “Hidden in plain sight?”  It’s something that is so obvious, yet it’s often not seen.  People act as if God is elusive, unattainable, or over complicate the truth that sits right in front of each one of us.  People search, groping in the dark for a light that is burning bright enough to illuminate the whole … Continue reading 11.15.17 Prayer Prompt: Seek and Find

11.4.17 Prayer Prompt: Lessons From a Feather

PRAYER PROMPT ••• When I was a little girl, if I found a feather, I’d rub it against my face and arms.  Then my mother would catch me and yell at me to drop it because she was worried about germs.  The 42 year old version of me appreciates my mother’s warnings, but I still love the feel of feathers.  They represent soft and warm … Continue reading 11.4.17 Prayer Prompt: Lessons From a Feather
