Inauguration Day 2017: Pray

Praying for Trump and his family! Met them briefly years ago. They were nice. Whatever our political preference remember: We GET the privilege to pray for PEOPLE! It’s not about platforms, policies or parties and that is a blessing and a huge opportunity to storm Heaven on behalf of someone else! #inauguration2017

Do Not Hold This Sin Against Them

In Acts 7, Stephen’s last words were,”Lord, do not hold this sin against them.” Saul became Paul shortly after that and the rest is HIStory! God answers prayer!

A Picture Paints a Thousand Words (Week 40)

**A Picture Paints a Thousand Words! When prayer, paint and pencils dance:

(Week 33) Belmont Blessings

Story behind the Painting: My husband and I are in a couples small group.  One of the mammas from this group asked me to paint a little something for her daughter’s soon-to-be new dorm and home, while I prayed over her college years.  It was an easy YES and a beautiful blessing to do so. […]

(Week 32) Bama Bound: Let’s Hear It For the Boys

Story Behind the Painting: This watercolor elephant is a graduation present for a friend’s son.  I asked her what I could possibly paint that a freshman boy might actually hang in his dorm and an elephant was the safest, school appropriate bet. Although the title gives it away, the elephant is intended to as well. […]

Sorority Rush Prayer #7

Today is the last day in the Sorority Rush Prayer series. My hope is that universities, parents of anyone going through rush or knowing anyone going through rush, and all sisters-in-Christ would link arms and circle the Greek houses and the rushees choosing to go through in prayer. Rush week has the beautiful potential to […]

Sorority Rush Prayer #6

“The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.  I say to myself, “The Lord is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in him!” Lamentations 3:22-24 (NLT) Lord, as you wake your daughters each morning during this rush week, woo them to […]

Sorority Rush Prayer #5

Lord, we lift up the Greek System as a whole. Each individual house is unique and significant.  No house is greater than another, they are “different-but-similar parts arranged and functioning together.” May the individual houses, and each sister in a sisterhood, recognize their significance as a special addition to a collective whole, seeking to co-labor, […]

Sorority Rush Prayer #4

For God’s daughters who have ever been “the one” (which is all of us by the way:) and to the sorority sisters about to receive new “family” members, may you be kind, brave and inclusive, willing to be change makers where need be and radiant examples of God’s love, grace and mercy in the midst […]
