Worry ends where faith begins.

From Philippians 4:6-7:  “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Martin Luther King, Jr.

None can believe how powerful prayer is, and what it is able to effect, but those who have learned it by experience.

Charles Spurgeon

I know of no better thermometer to your spiritual temperature than this, the measure of the intensity of your prayer.

From 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18:  “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

Jack Wellman Quote

Peace doesn’t come until we lay it all out before God and then let God do what only He can do, while doing what we can:  even if it’s only praying.

From Philippians 4:6-7:  “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Worth Waiting For

From Psalm 25:4-5:  “Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths.  Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all day long.”

No matter what you have or don’t have, true wholeness comes from Jesus alone.

From Philippians 4:6-7:  “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Prayer is the most important tool for your mission to the world.  People may refuse our love or reject our message, but they are defenseless against our prayers.

From 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18:  “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
