6.23.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: God Knows Our Thoughts

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• I saw this meme on Facebook: “I’m grateful that thoughts don’t appear in bubbles over our heads.” Isn’t that the truth?

6.19.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Hearing (A Sensory Series)

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• This is Day 3 of our week-long focus on the five senses: sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch. Day 3–Hearing. I have some strong opinions on this sense since so many equate hearing with listening. But the sense is called hearing, so I picked a verse that uses that word… But we’ll be talking about listening too! With that said, … Continue reading 6.19.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Hearing (A Sensory Series)

5.24.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Be Still

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• My Kitchen Aid mixer is my second favorite appliance in the kitchen, right after my coffee maker. I often use it to shred chicken… But occasionally, when I flip the switch, it goes from a nice, leisurely Sunday stroll to “Mission Control, we’re ready for lift off” faster than I can react. And that’s when I end up with chicken … Continue reading 5.24.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Be Still

5.19.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: The Joy of Trials

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• We just finished a Bible study at church based on Lysa TerKeurst’s book, “It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way.” In her video teaching, she uses James 1:2-3 which says, “Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.” Our class agreed with her that … Continue reading 5.19.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: The Joy of Trials

5.18.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Faith in the Unseen

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” This verse, along with bold prayer, has a lot of power.

It’s when we pray for God to intercede and work a miracle, that … Continue reading 5.18.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Faith in the Unseen
