PRAYING FOR OUR CHILDREN BY ADENA HODGES

Worrying about our children comes as naturally to a parent as breathing.  We are concerned about this issue or that character trait in them.  We fear what might happen to them – accidents, trauma, abuse.  We worry about their grades, their peer relationships, their physical development.  And most of all, we desire our children to…

THE LOVE CYCLE PRAYER BY ADENA HODGES

I did it again!  To be honest, it happens more often than I’d like.  I get into “doing” and forget my source is found in sitting at Jesus’ feet and receiving from Him.  Too often we operate in our own strength, gifts or abilities instead of learning the flow of taking in God’s love first….

Intercession by Judy Trent-Whitnack

“But we will devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word.” Acts 6:4 Do you pray for people besides yourself? If so, YOU are an intercessor. An intercessor is simply a mediator between God and another. As an intercessor, YOU are an extraordinary gift to the Body of Christ and the Sacramento…

Hope Restored By Judy Trent-Whitnack

Have you ever found something you forgot you had?  Or lost something without realizing it?   When I was 31 years old, my first husband died of cancer.  In the years that followed, I struggled to raise our four young children alone, in the midst of great depression.   Some months ago, I came upon…

The Pictures By Judy Trent-Whitnack

      I had a dream recently that my husband was taking down all of the pictures from the walls of my home office.  I sobbed as I tried to stop him.  These were my pictures, the very best of my memories, treasures of my life – past, present and future.   It took…

Prayer Retreats by Adena Hodges

Looking forward to a prayer retreat this afternoon – 24-hours away with Jesus!  We all need times of refreshing in the Lord.  We can get so busy with our schedules, work, family, etc. Jesus experienced this, too.  He said to His disciples, “Come aside by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.  For…

Listening Prayer by Adena Hodges

  For many of us, prayer tends to be a one-sided monologue, pouring out our thoughts, needs and praises.  But God is eager to speak to us!  I love this verse from Isaiah 50:4 “…He awakens me morning by morning; He awakens my ear to hear as the learned.”  I want to wake up each…

Pray Continually by Scott Davis

Good Morning,                                                                                            October 6, 2014 A couple of weeks ago I wrote about the importance of seeking God’s will in and through our prayers. But another thing about prayer that I struggle with is how little I pray. Sure I pray at mealtime and I pray in the morning during my quiet time…

A Culture of Honor by Judy Trent-Whitnack

  “Honor”, according to HELPS Word-Studies, means perceived value, worth, willingly assigned to something. I encourage you to take a moment and ask the Lord if you are willingly assigning worth to everyone you see and meet.  This is what He is calling us to.   A Culture of Honor is created when many people are seeing and wholeheartedly…
