10.10.17 Prayer Prompt: Pause, Praise, & Pray

PRAYER PROMPT ••• This is the first year I’ve ever chosen a word as a theme.  My word is “selah.”  It has been my focal word. “Selah” is used at the end of various psalms, but Biblical scholars aren’t 100% sure what it means.  When I was researching it, I found an article on GotQuestions.org and this excerpt is a large part of why I … Continue reading 10.10.17 Prayer Prompt: Pause, Praise, & Pray

10.8.17 Prayer Prompt: Journey with Jesus

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Have you ever had a passport?  This little book holds great potential.  It gives the authority to travel internationally and spend time in foreign countries.  But to get it – it’s not easy.  It takes time and money to obtain it.  But most find the effort worthwhile when it comes to seeing the world.  Have you ever thought about our faith with … Continue reading 10.8.17 Prayer Prompt: Journey with Jesus

10.4.17 Prayer Prompt: When The Holy Spirit Intercedes…

PRAYER PROMPT ••• God doesn’t always speak in a big grand gesture.  More often, He whispers to us.  And we just need to listen.  A friend commented on yesterday’s post that the reference to Romans 8:28 was the second time she’d seen it that day.  I take that stuff seriously and it’s no coincidence.  She needed that verse and God used two separate opportunities to … Continue reading 10.4.17 Prayer Prompt: When The Holy Spirit Intercedes…

10.3.17 Prayer Prompt: God Provides

PRAYER PROMPT ••• There are some days for which there are no words.  Yesterday was one of them.  I learned about the Vegas shooting after I wrote the morning prayer prompt and like so many, I wondered how on earth someone could do something like that. Honestly, I’m not going to spend time today writing about the shooting, or Tom Petty’s unexpected death and the … Continue reading 10.3.17 Prayer Prompt: God Provides

9.20.17 Prayer Prompt: Seek the Truth

PRAYER PROMPT ••• How important is the truth?  I’m sure you don’t like lies, but what about half-truths?  Or do you want the whole truth and nothing but the truth?  Most of us expect the whole truth, but our world seems to prefer half-truths.  And I’m not talking about “fake news.”  Our world embraces the idea that if you do good and you do nice … Continue reading 9.20.17 Prayer Prompt: Seek the Truth

9.2.17 Prayer Prompt: God is Great and God is Good

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Have you ever had one of those weeks where you’re just drained of energy?  And no amount of coffee is getting the job done?  I think I’ve had one of those weeks for about a month now.  And as a coffee girl who drinks more than her fair share on a daily basis anyway, it doesn’t seem to be working.  I drank … Continue reading 9.2.17 Prayer Prompt: God is Great and God is Good

9.1.17 Prayer Prompt: Want vs. Need

PRAYER PROMPT ••• We need God.  All the time.  In one of His seven “I am” statements, Jesus said, “Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5).  A branch without a vine is nothing.  It accomplishes nothing.  It cannot grow.  It … Continue reading 9.1.17 Prayer Prompt: Want vs. Need
