I received an email some time ago that demonstrated how to use your fingers to pray. If you’re looking for ideas to improve your prayer life, give it a try.
Many of us are like Moses. God calls and we feel inadequate or ill prepared for what He has for us.
When it comes to communicating truths about the Christian life, the need for asterisks are everywhere. Take today’s Scripture, for example.

As you look at your own life, don’t wait for issues to fester, allowing soul cancers to grow. Please don’t let another week go by without taking steps toward healing. None of us are immune.
When cows fly, bad things happen. When cows fly, unintended consequences are set into motion.
We would do well to linger a bit more on the Scriptures that tell the story of the pain and agony He undertook on our behalf to provide us with the gift of a restored relationship with God.
