8.10.17 Prayer Prompt: Trust God

PRAYER PROMPT ••• When they say God speaks to us through His word – they aren’t kidding.  So here’s what happened – last night, I went to my church’s women’s Bible study.  When it came time for prayer requests, I didn’t speak up.  Mostly because I literally cannot tell anyone my prayer request without crying and I hate to cry in front of people.  But … Continue reading 8.10.17 Prayer Prompt: Trust God

8.5.17 Prayer Prompt: God Calls the Unlikely

PRAYER PROMPT ••• One of my favorite things about studying God’s word is His unexpected way of thinking.  He loves to use the least likely candidate or the most unlikely of situations to bring about amazing results.  From a Human Resources perspective, His way is like pulling the most unskilled and under qualified candidate out of the stack of resumes and offering them the job! … Continue reading 8.5.17 Prayer Prompt: God Calls the Unlikely

7.18.17 Prayer Prompt: Jesus Satisfies Our Longings

PRAYER PROMPT ••• This past Sunday, our church’s music was centered around old, traditional Gospels that I’ve loved all my life.  The choir sang, “I Love to Tell the Story,” and I woke up with the lyrics on my mind.  The first verse says,”I love to tell the story of unseen things above, Of Jesus and His glory, of Jesus and His love; I love … Continue reading 7.18.17 Prayer Prompt: Jesus Satisfies Our Longings

7.16.17 Prayer Prompt: Circle of Life (and Choices)

PRAYER PROMPT ••• If I refer to the “Circle of Life,” you may immediately begin humming the song from “The Lion King,” and picture Simba being lifted in the air.  There’s truth in that phrase – there is a circle of life.  The spring arrives every year, followed by summer, fall, then winter.  The sun rises.  The sun sets.  Then it does it again.  There’s … Continue reading 7.16.17 Prayer Prompt: Circle of Life (and Choices)

7.14.17 Prayer Prompt: Grace and Mercy

PRAYER PROMPT ••• The word “grace” means many things and conjures images ranging from a ballerina to a family praying at dinner to a disheveled cockney referring to a Duke or Duchess (I envision a scene from Audrey Hepburn’s “My Fair Lady.”)  But of course, we’re going to talk about the divine grace that is generously given from God our Father.  Psalm 130:3-4 says, “If … Continue reading 7.14.17 Prayer Prompt: Grace and Mercy

6.21.17 Prayer Prompt: Live for God

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Before Paul Walker died, he was recoded as saying, “The people I don’t understand are atheists. I go surfing and snow boarding and I’m always around nature. I look at everything and think, ‘Who couldn’t believe there’s a God? Is all this a mistake?’ It just blows me away.”  I couldn’t agree with him more.  Every time I look outside, I’m amazed … Continue reading 6.21.17 Prayer Prompt: Live for God

6.18.17 Prayer Prompt: One Way

PRAYER PROMPT ••• By the world’s standard, this “One Way” sign should be offensive.  Our culture has embraced the notion of “Do whatever you want and if someone doesn’t like it, they are nothing but mean spirited dummy-heads!”  But because this sign demonstrates a matter of safety, not for one person, or a few, but for everyone, and people understand its purpose, the sign is … Continue reading 6.18.17 Prayer Prompt: One Way
