Why don’t I hear God speak?

Psalm 86:6-7 ( tells us God hears and answers our prayers, but we struggle to hear Him. Often this is because we have our say, but don’t take time to listen to Him. We are so busy living our lives, that we don’t see His answers to our prayers.

To hear God, we need to open our eyes to what God is doing around us. We need to quieten our hearts and take time to reflect, so that we can hear Him give us clarity and wisdom.

Lord, help me to slow down and make time to be still and hear what you are saying.



Pray for somebody

You don’t always know what people are going through and trust me, everyone has challenges, E V E R Y O N E, no matter how perfectly they portray their lives. Some have more challenges than others but there is still a need.

Galatians 6:2 (
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (

God instructs us in these verses to carry each other’s burdens and to pray continually. HE knows that prayer is powerful. HE works through our prayers to meet our needs and those we pray for as well.

Everyone needs prayer because everyone needs God.
Who can you pray for someone this week?



Amazing Grace

One of the songs sang at Joe Biden’s inauguration was Amazing Grace. Most of us are familiar with this song but its main point is a good reminder of our journey as Christ followers and makes a beautiful soundtrack to our lives.

Jesus came to seek and save the lost.
Luke 19:10 (

As we come to know Christ we become found. With a clear conscience we can sing this song, with thankfulness loud and clear. Today, give thanks that God has found you and pray for people you know who are still lost.


Robin Hood

This movie is about a man who discovers his past and unites with a selfish King and all of England to prevent a scheme and a French invasion.

Are leaders worthy of our respect even when they do not act in our best interest? (like the selfish king in Robin Hood..) If the law is unfair should we still obey it? At what point should we stand up for what’s right? And at what cost?

1 Peter 2:17 ( gives us the best answer! Where ever you are, just take a moment and pray for the leaders of our country – and for leaders around the world.
