Hour 1: Governor's Prayer Breakfast | Public Servant's Prayer

Matt Barnes, President and CEO of Public Servant's Prayer, invites us to all events happening at the Indiana State Capitol Building.  The Governor's Prayer Breakfast is coming up in three days, February 13.  Steve and Hannah pick Matt's brain about the political upheaval and discord, but Matt says our King will never be voted out of office!   


Hour 2: Generosity

Moody Radio is kicking off a national week of Generosity. What does it mean, and how can we be generous beside a financial gifts?  Steve and Hannah discuss an article by the Gospel Coalition, with "grace-fueled generosity."


Hour 3: Daily Devotional

Our theme this week is generosity, and Steve incorporates the Scripture of the Day. 

James 2:2-4 For if a man wearing a gold ring and fine clothing comes into your assembly, and a poor man in shabby clothing also comes in, and if you pay attention to the one who wears the fine clothing and say, “You sit here in a good place,” while you say to the poor man, “You stand over there,” or, “Sit down at my feet,” have you not then made distinctions among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts?

Chaplain Matthew Barnes is blessed to have an incredible Christian heritage. Growing up in a pastor’s family, he was taught the importance of ministering to others. Matthew’s father is the pastor of Hope Baptist Church in Sunman, Indiana, and Matthew is a missionary sent out of HBC. Matthew worked for several years bi-vocationally with a desire to go into full-time ministry. In the fall of 2004, after listening to a sermon on praying for political leaders, God placed a burden on Matthew's heart to begin a ministry in the Indiana Statehouse. A short time later, he founded Public Servants' Prayer. God has provided Matthew with incredible opportunities to lead Bible Studies, Chapel Services, Annual Statehouse Prayer Services, Prayer Breakfasts, and Pastors’ Statehouse Days. These events, combined with faithful interaction within the capitol community, have opened many doors for sharing the Good News and testimonies of God’s faithfulnes.
