*ATTENTION*
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:

Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen - Hebrews 11:1
 
Whether you ask or not God is there.

For we walk by faith and not by sight - Corinthians 5:7

Some things have to be believed to be seen - Ralph Hodgson

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

As a child of God, prayer is like calling home every day.

Strive to be righteous not flawless.

In the Lord I have put my trust, what can mere man do to me? - Psalms 56:11

"If we cannot believe God when circumstances seem be against us, we do not believe Him at all. " - Charles Spurgeon
 
I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.  - Romans 8:38-39 NLT

And for a bit of humor: Lord, please make me the kind of person my dog thinks I am.


Unequally Yoked


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.

Quicklook: 2 Chronicles 18:1–3, 28–34
