4.12.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Sin & Grace

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• Romans 3:23 says, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God…” We know this verse. We believe this verse. But do we personalize this verse?

It’s an uncomfortable topic … Continue reading 4.12.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Sin & Grace

Verses 16-18 say, “Confess … Continue reading 4.9.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: The Power of Prayer

4.8.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Because God…

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• Psalm 71:7 says, “My life is an example to many because you have been my strength and protection.” A knee-jerk reaction to reading this may be that the writer was a little arrogant to assume his life was an example for others… Except there are two keywords that make all the difference. “Because You.” The Psalmist recognizes that any perceived … Continue reading 4.8.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Because God…
