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.

PRAYER PROMPT ••• I really don’t like it when the weatherman’s predictions about snow come true. But unfortunately, the forecast was accurate.
