PRAYER PROMPT ••• In the craziness of life, it’s hard to remember that we each have significant roles to play in the Kingdom of Heaven. God has given all of us special gifts and talents. And He isn’t limited by how they are used. His never-ending creativity means we can use similar gifts in extraordinarily different ways. In my Christian women’s writing group, we all … Continue reading 1.12.18 Prayer Prompt: A Drop in the Bucket
PRAYER PROMPT ••• As Christians, we often talk about walking with Jesus. But part of that walk includes a prayer walk. Sometimes, the prayer walk is a bit meandering. You kind of walk from here to there, aimlessly, with no real direction in mind. Other times, we walk confidently and boldly; it’s a power walk. And other times (let’s be honest), we kick off our … Continue reading 1.11.18 Prayer Prompt: Prayer Walk
PRAYER PROMPT ••• I love to go out to eat. My hometown is a “foodie” town, so I’m pretty spoiled with a great selection of local restaurants to choose from. On the other hand, I’m a homebody who likes to cook, so I also like to invite people over for dinner. Good food isn’t just about eating; it often goes hand in hand with spending … Continue reading 1.10.18 Prayer Prompt: The Feast in Heaven

It’s … Continue reading 1.9.18 Prayer Prompt: Confident Faith
PRAYER PROMPT ••• I have always loved the movies. My favorites are the classics from the 30s and 40s. The Golden Era. I don’t watch as many movies that come out today, but I think the production process is fascinating. We’re in “Awards Season” for the Hollywood elite (there are 13 award banquets scheduled in January and February alone). Last night was the Golden Globes. … Continue reading 1.7.18 Prayer Prompt: Is Your Screenplay Up For An Award?
PRAYER PROMPT ••• I had to write a paper in college on the symbolism used in “The Great Gatsby.” Years later, it remains one of my favorite projects; I wish I still had a copy of it. My favorite part was the billboard for Dr. T.J. Eckleburg, and the line spoken by the character George Wilson, as he reflects on his wife, Myrtle’s infidelity. “God … Continue reading 1.6.18 Prayer Prompt: What Do You Want God To See?
PRAYER PROMPT ••• Jesus said in Matthew 12:36, “And I tell you this, you must give an account on judgment day for every idle word you speak.” That should terrify all of us. I wanted to write about this today, specifically on the heels of yesterday’s post. To briefly recap, it was about sharing prayer requests that leave us vulnerable. Those requests can empower others … Continue reading 1.5.18 Prayer Prompt: Use Words Cautiously
