A Prayer for Your Midweek




I ran across the following prayer in a devotional book by John Piper. I encourage you to take a moment to read it .. and then pray it, making it your own.





Thank you Lord, for the lives of flawed and faith-filled saints! 
Thank you for grace, amazing grace, that saves and uses sinners!
Lord, don't let us limit your power by what we see in the mirror. 
Help us to trust you. Help us, as William Carey said, 
to expect great things from God  and attempt great things for God. 
We are not great. But you are great. 
Your power is made perfect in our weakness. 
We surrender all worldly claims on our lives. 
Come. Make us useful for the glory of Christ. 
In his great name we pray.
Amen.

Are You Preparing for Eternity?

Our journey on earth is but a breath ... a heart beat when compared to the expanse of Eternity. We all must remember that how we live live in the here and now will impact our experience in the then and there.

Thoughts on how biblical truth impacts all of life.
