Good Words for Today: January 7

January 7, 2017

“Pray for one another” (James 5:16).

Prayer bridges the gap between people. Through prayer miracles of reconciliation happen.

Prayer overcomes the misunderstanding that separates us.
Prayer leaps across the bad memories that pull us apart.
Prayer nullifies the estrangement that keeps us from speaking.

There can be bitterness and anger between you, even years of alienation. But that doesn’t matter when you pray because prayer bridges the gap between you and those you love. Your heart can touch their heart by the simple act of praying. What starts in your heart goes first to the Father’s heart, and purified by the sunlight of his love, your prayer falls like an arrow in the heart of the one you love. Prayer can do that! It enables you to touch people who won’t speak to you.

Pray, pray, and keep on praying. You never know what God will do.

Ebook: In His Steps

No one who met our Lord ever stayed the same. If Christmas tells us why Jesus came, then Easter tells us he fully accomplished his mission. In between those two events we have the whole life of Christ. That’s our focus as we walk “In His Steps”, a book of 47 devotionals for the season of Lent (the period of time leading up to Easter).

“Equipping and encouraging people to keep believing in Jesus”

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
