Prayer Request & Praise Reports!
Due to an abuse of our prayer and praise reports system, we have temporarily suspended its use. We were hit with a large amount of spam and multiple requests that disregarded our previous rules. We apologize if this inconveniences those who were earnestly seeking prayer but it has become a problem to us.
Here are a few simple quotes to help you through the day:
For we walk by faith and not by sight - Corinthians 5:7
To love God is the greatest of virtues; to be loved by God is the greatest of blessings.
Don't tell God how big your storm is, tell the storm how big your God is!
The Lord gives grace to the humble - Proverbs 3:34
Strive to be righteous not flawless.
And for a bit of humor: Lord, please make me the kind of person my dog thinks I am.
Read 2 Chronicles 17:1 through 21:20

Many Christians form partnerships with unbelievers. If the unbeliever engages in questionable behavior, the Christian could lose finances and reputation simply by association.
The Bible says not to “be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?” (2 Corinthians 6:14). Jehoshaphat should have followed that godly counsel.
Now Jehoshaphat had great wealth and honor, and he allied himself with Ahab by marriage (2 Chronicles 18:1).
King Jehoshaphat almost lost his life because of his foolish alliance with a wicked king. In 2 Chronicles 17:3, readers find these words, “The Lord was with Jehoshaphat because he followed the ways of his father David.” Yet, as other kings before him, he chose to stray from God’s ways, and he suffered the consequences.
We will also face consequences if we do not obey God’s command regarding unequal partnerships. Whether in business or marriage, let us seek to link only with those who follow the Lord.
Prayer Suggestion: Ask God to guide you in your relationships.
