What do you take to the Lord in prayer? Does your conversation with God include courageous prayers or do you merely ask God for what you think is reasonable and doable from your perspective? We are going to poke the bear a little regarding what we ask God for as we visit with Julia Sadler Monday. Julia and her husband decided to be bold in what they pray for and we’ll hear their story and be challenged to pray big prayers to an even bigger God.
Has your life turned out the way you planned? What do we do when our dreams lie in tatters and plans in the trash heap? Tracy Steel shares how God is in the midst of the mess and we can trust his plans and purposes for our life. God has put together two of Tracy’s passions as a template for sharing this message and we’ll hear about what she has learned from interior design that helped her process what God was doing as the master designer in her life.
Ken's morning devotional comes from David Jeremiah's "Discovery: Experiencing God's Word Day By Day"
