12.1.18 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Replenished Souls

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• Jeremiah 31:25 says, “For I will satisfy the weary soul, and every languishing soul I will replenish.” These words of the Lord being such comfort, don’t they?

11.24.18 Praise & Prayer Prompt: The Truth of John 3:16

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• I recently heard a preacher say that John 3:16 was no longer the most well-known Bible verse… He said it’s been replaced with Matthew 7:1, which says, “Judge not, that you be not judged.” I have no idea if he’s right or not, but I tend to agree with his thought process… In our society that encourages others to say … Continue reading 11.24.18 Praise & Prayer Prompt: The Truth of John 3:16

11.18.18 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Trusting Our Preachers

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• Day 5 of our series on trust, and today, we’re going to talk about preachers. The Bible has some very strong words on the responsibility of teaching God’s word.

11.4.18 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Shiny Object Syndrome

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• Sometimes, I can be prone to “shiny object syndrome,” and get distracted.

If you have given your life to Jesus, you are the enemy of Satan and he will do … Continue reading 11.4.18 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Shiny Object Syndrome
