Prayer of the Day

Prayer for today (1/25/18)

How can anyone be so incredelious as to believe that there is no God? His hand can be seen in every brushstroke of the twilight sky. His wonder is seen in every flash of lightning and his voice is heard in every clap of thunder. His vibrance is present in every flowering bloom. You can see his brillance portrayed in every angelic face of every body. He cares for us all. We are created in his image, lavished in his love.

Prayer of the Day

Prayer for today (1/23/18)

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. We praise thee O Lord! We thank you for the power of your word. Saturate us as we meditate on your word. As we read and study, cause your word to penetrate our lives. Cleansing, healing, restoring, making us new from the inside out. Some are in sorrow and despair. Some have needs without resources. Some feel as if all hope is gone. Whatever the situation, direct them in your word. Cause their hands to turn the pages, their eyes to see the verses, their mouths to speak the words, their hearts to receive and then praise will break forth because they will know the Lord has answered their cry. In Jesus name. Amen.

Governments close, but heaven is always open

I am a Macon native and over the years, I’ve watched tearfully as several landmarks closed, each taking a piece of my history with them — Sears, J.C. Penny, Kmart, Target, etc. Closures in any facet are difficult because they represent loss of some kind — the end of something.

Prayer for today (1/22/18)

Master, we acknowledge that we are sin-filled creatures, rebellious and disobedient by nature. Please forgive us and renew in us a spirit of obedience to your will and your ways – for in our hearts we want to be usable instruments of your kingdom’s growth and development. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
