10.21.17 Prayer Prompt: Constant Prayer 

PRAYER PROMPT ••• This morning is our third and final installment in the review of Romans 12:12. We’ve broken the verse down into “rejoice in hope,” “be patient in tribulation,” and today is “be constant in prayer.”  Prayer is the ongoing, never ending conversation that we have with God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.  It’s our direct line of communication.  And like … Continue reading 10.21.17 Prayer Prompt: Constant Prayer 

10.20.17 Prayer Prompt: Hard Times

PRAYER PROMPT ••• This is the first time I’ve done a Prayer Prompt series and yesterday, we spent time looking at the first part of Romans 12:12, “rejoice in hope.”  Today, we are focused on “be patient in tribulation.”  And tomorrow, we’ll review the last part of the verse, “constant in prayer.”  As much as this verse spoke to me, I admit – I only … Continue reading 10.20.17 Prayer Prompt: Hard Times

10.19.17 Prayer Prompt: Expectation

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Our key verse for today is Romans 12:12 says, “Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.”  The verse is such a perfect summation of what we need to do as we walk with Christ.  Let’s start with hope and do a little verse-mapping.  Hope, of course, is a feeling of expectation and desire.   Romans 15:13 says, “May the … Continue reading 10.19.17 Prayer Prompt: Expectation

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
