10.21.18 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Great Is Thy Faithfulness

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• My first thought this morning was how much I dread today. Today is my Mamo’s funeral. And it feels so wrong to even type that out.

9.11.18 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Never Forget

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• Though I didn’t personally know anyone who died on 9/11, like so many Americans, it had a profound effect on me.

6.1.18 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Thank God It’s Friday

1.19.18 Prayer Prompt: Milestones and Mercies

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Today is my son’s 20th birthday (or another way to look at it – my own personal Labor Day).  On the day he was born, my delivery room overlooked the hospital helicopter pad, and I had an unimpeded view of what was going on outside.  On January 19th, 1998, it was sunny; it rained, and it snowed.  All in one day.  I … Continue reading 1.19.18 Prayer Prompt: Milestones and Mercies

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

10.30.17 Prayer Prompt: God’s Mercies and Faithfulness

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Yesterday, God encouraged me to share a deeply personal prayer request with my Sunday School class.  He used a friend to remind me of a Scripture I needed to hear.  And later, He opened up the door for a new friend to share some burdens and for us to pray together.  Many tears yesterday but a reminder that no matter how big … Continue reading 10.30.17 Prayer Prompt: God’s Mercies and Faithfulness
