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 

8.4.17 Prayer Prompt: Admiring God’s Handiwork 

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Throughout my life, I’ve had moments where I stood outside of wherever I was living at the time, and wondered what the ground I was standing on looked like 100 years ago… 200 years ago… 500…  As much as I appreciate the modern conveniences that go in our homes (I.e., internet, electricity, running water, indoor plumbing, and air conditioning in NC August), … Continue reading 8.4.17 Prayer Prompt: Admiring God’s Handiwork 

7.5.17 Prayer Prompt: Always There

PRAYER PROMPT ••• In January 2016, my husband’s grandfather turned 100 years old and his birthday celebration fell the weekend of a major blizzard that shut down a good chunk of NC (where we live), as well as VA, WV, and KY… pretty much all the way to our destination in Cincinnati.  We drove through it, but that 7 1/2 hour car ride took almost … Continue reading 7.5.17 Prayer Prompt: Always There

6.29.17 Prayer Prompt: Timely Faith

PRAYER PROMPT ••• When it comes to faith, it’s not a lack of trust in whether or not God CAN do something… it’s a lack of patience on His timing.  Just as the old cartoon depicts the miner walking away after digging and digging, discouraged that he didn’t find what he was looking for, so is our tendency to give up when our prayers aren’t … Continue reading 6.29.17 Prayer Prompt: Timely Faith

6.24.17 Prayer Prompt: Do Not Conform, But Trust and Pray

THIS PRAYER PROMPT CONTINUES IN THE COMMENTS! PRAYER PROMPT ••• Isaiah 8:11 says, “For the Lord spoke thus to me with his strong hand upon me, and warned me not to walk in the way of this people…” The chapter goes on to talk about trusting in God, rather than following the world’s lead. As I read it, I couldn’t help but think of how … Continue reading 6.24.17 Prayer Prompt: Do Not Conform, But Trust and Pray

5.31.17 Prayer Prompt: Extraordinary Opportunities for Ordinary People

PRAYER PROMPT ••• The more I study who God is, the more I recognize His sense of irony.  When God wanted to lead His people out of Egypt, He didn’t use an established leader to rally the people, He used an 80-year old murderer with a speech impediment who had been living in exile.  When Goliath needed to be defeated, God didn’t use the strongest, … Continue reading 5.31.17 Prayer Prompt: Extraordinary Opportunities for Ordinary People

5.25.17 Prayer Prompt: New

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Despite the number of flowery graphics I’ve used on this page, I’m really not much of a flower girl.  I think they are pretty, but I don’t want my husband to spend money on them.  With that said though, I love daisies.  There’s something about the simple white petals with the bright yellow center of a daisy that makes me happy.  The … Continue reading 5.25.17 Prayer Prompt: New
