4.12.18 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Solution Before the Need

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• I have no idea who wrote the quote on today’s graphic, but it’s one of those quotes I wish I could claim. “Long before Zacchaeus couldn’t see Jesus, the tree was already planted to meet his need.” There is so much brilliant truth in this sentence. Just so we’re all on the same page, Zacchaeus was a vertically-challenged tax collector … Continue reading 4.12.18 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Solution Before the Need

4.4.18 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Doors

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• Doors: they close and lock to protect us. They also open up to invite family and friends. They aren’t complicated; they do what you expect them to do.

4.2.18 Praise Prompt: Understanding God

PRAISE PROMPT ••• One of my favorite scenes from any movie is the “stand on the desk and look around” scene from “Dead Poets Society.” I love Mr. Keating’s challenge to look at things from a different perspective.

3.13.18 Praise Prompt: The Words in Scripture

PRAISE PROMPT ••• When it comes to Bible verses that bring comfort, Romans 8:28 has to be at the top of the list. “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” It’s a verse that is often quoted when we don’t know what to say. It … Continue reading 3.13.18 Praise Prompt: The Words in Scripture

2.25.18 Prayer Prompt: The Miracle of Grace

PRAYER PROMPT ••• I love the word “grace.” It’s a simple word with a variety of meanings. The definition we focus on is “the free and unmerited favor of God, as manifested in the salvation of sinners and the bestowal of blessings.” It’s the grace described in Ephesians 2:8-9 that inspired the name of this website.
