8.14.17 Prayer Prompt: Getting Know God

PRAYER PROMPT ••• I read from Nehemiah again today and once again, I am awed and amazed by God’s timing!  Nehemiah 8:12 says, “So the people went away to eat and drink at a festive meal, to share gifts of food, and to celebrate with great joy because they had heard God’s words and understood them.”  This verse showed up today on the heels of … Continue reading 8.14.17 Prayer Prompt: Getting Know God

8.9.17 Prayer Prompt: A Yeast Infiltration 

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Have you ever made bread?  It’s amazing how so little yeast can overtake the batch of dough and cause the whole thing to multiply.  Ever put rising dough in a bowl that was too small?  Yeah, me too.  It’s like that old horror film from the 50’s, “The Blob.”  Paul used an illustration of yeast as a warning in a letter to … Continue reading 8.9.17 Prayer Prompt: A Yeast Infiltration 

8.7.17 Prayer Prompt: Throw Your Good Deeds in the Fire

PRAYER PROMPT ••• My favorite verses in scripture are Ephesians 2:8-9, “For by grace you have been saved through faith.

7.25.17 Prayer Prompt: Permissible, Not Beneficial

PRAYER PROMPT ••• When I was a little girl, there was a family in our church who had a gorgeous weeping willow tree in their front yard.  I loved that tree.  We passed their house every week on the way to church and every week, I pressed my nose against the window to admire it.  I finally asked my mom if we could plant a … Continue reading 7.25.17 Prayer Prompt: Permissible, Not Beneficial

7.23.17 Prayer Prompt: Share the Gospel and Be a Part of the Body

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Jesus said, “And he said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” (Mark 16:15)  Then, Paul wrote, “we endure anything rather than put an obstacle in the way of the gospel of Christ…I do it all for the sake of the gospel, that I may share with them in its blessings.” (1 Corinthians 9:12b, 23)  … Continue reading 7.23.17 Prayer Prompt: Share the Gospel and Be a Part of the Body

6.2.17 Prayer Prompt: Glory to God

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Everyone likes accolades.  We want to receive credit for a job well done.  (So much so that many studies report people would rather have praise than a raise in pay!)  However, how often do we fail to give credit to the One who enables and empowers us?  In my job, I write and work with other writers.  I love getting positive feedback … Continue reading 6.2.17 Prayer Prompt: Glory to God
