“Some Christians spend the first six days of each week sowing their wild oats, then they go to church on Sunday and pray for a crop failure…God calls us to another standard.”

We’re all involved in another game, the game of life it’s called.
We become a part of this game the minute we are born
There are rules on how we can win the greatest prize of all
We find them in God’s Holy Word, ancient and well worn.

rayer Family for the week: Terry and Stephanie Hancher.


I’ve seen so many answers to prayer, and so have you
So when we see one answered, just what should we do?
Do we take it for granted, this answer to our petition?
Do we just ignore the wonder of our position?
We are so privileged to approach the awesome God who hears
The God who has given us wisdom and comfort through the years
So now we can give Him glory, give Him honor, thanks and praise
For loving us, for hearing us, and watching over us all of our days.

“We need to report of the haughty way in which we sometimes stand in judgment upon scripture and must learn to sit humbly under its judgment instead…We must allow the Word of God to confront us, overthrow our patterns of thought and behavior.”

Prayer Family for the week: Glenna Gessner and Donnie

If we’ve given our lives to Jesus, a temple is where we live,
The temple of the Holy Spirit which only God can give
He wants it full of thoughts of Him, of thanksgiving and of praise,
And ways to let His light shine through for all our earthly days.
He tells us in the Bible the things He wants us to think about
The things to welcome in our thoughts, and what things to keep out
Since thoughts generate actions, it’s important that we think
And time goes so swiftly, it passes in a wink.
So do we think of others kindly, is forgiveness in our thoughts?
Or do we think on negatives and criticize others lots?
We thank our Heavenly Father for His unfailing love and care
That gives us grace and forgiveness, no matter what or where.
As long as we sincerely repent and want to change
As long as we are willing to let Him re-arrange
Whatever in His wisdom He knows needs our attention
Or wherever He knows our lives need His Divine intervention
So we do thank You for the way You have planned to lead
For the way You have arranged things to meet our every need.
So please lead us, guide us, show us how we ought to care
For this amazing temple and how we ought to share
The wonders of Your love for us and just what You have given
To prepare us for eternity, for the gift of heaven.
