Happy Presidents’ Day!

I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone — for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. (1 Timothy 2:1-2)

Almighty God, we make our earnest prayer that Thou wilt keep the United States in Thy holy protection. (George Washington)

I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go. My own wisdom, and that of all about me, seemed insufficient for the day. (Abraham Lincoln)

Sunday Solitude

Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Luke 5:16)

Be like Jesus. Get alone with your Heavenly Father right now and pray.

Here’s today’s prayer suggestion — one the world certainly needs right now. Pray through it with all your heart, soul and mind.

Tongue Trouble

Q: Pound for pound, what’s the most powerful muscle in the human body?

A: The tongue.

I once lost a Trivial Pursuit game because of that question. I even did a little Google research afterward to make sure I hadn’t been cheated out of a win. (I found it on Wikipedia so it must be true.)

But I was surprised by something else my search revealed. Up popped a slew of Bible-y warnings about the power of that seemingly innocuous pink flap of flesh.

GOD’S ADVICE FOR RELATIONSHIPS

Someone shared the following verses with my wife and me at a point in our marriage when we weren’t be all that LOVE-ly to one another:

Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything …

Yes! I remember thinking. If only she would do everything I say, our lives would be a whole lot better. But, unfortunately, there was more.

LOVE Prayer

LOVE-O-RAMA 2019 continues with a little love prayer …

Love In Action

GUWG-Help-HandsLOVE-O-RAMA 2019 continues …

“Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?” The King will reply, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” (Matthew 25:37-40)

Those are some rather sobering words straight from the mouth of Jesus. Here’s more:
