The Prayer I Woke Up Praying

I rarely ever wake up in the middle of the night and have trouble falling back asleep. Missy will tell you that once I lay down in bed it is not uncommon for me to fall asleep in mid sentence. I sleep hard. But last week I woke up around 4am and just couldn’t getContinue Reading

I am touched and motivated by this prayer by Paul in Ephesians 3:14-21.

Jonah Teaches Me to Pray

I was praying with Jonah (our two year old) tonight and he taught me a valuable lesson on prayer. I was thanking God for everything from his mommy to his friends and then he spontaneously picked up right in the middle of it all, “Sanks you God for me-me…sanks you God for my play ground…sanksContinue Reading

If You Had Three Years to Change the World…
