Prison Ministry

Christian Library International takes donations of used Christian books, Bibles (large print and Spanish are especially needed) and places them with prison chaplains for their lending libraries or as gifts to prisoners. It is a wonderful opportunity to show love and tell prisoners about Jesus.

 

The Christian Library International stamp is placed in each book that goes out so the prisoners may request to do a Bible study. It is a very worthwhile ministry that people here at Pray!…

Lessons Learned From Children

     During a Sunday School discussion on forgiveness, a young child asked, "Should we even forgive a person who drags us on the ground by our feet?" I could tell she thought some sins could be too much to forgive. I said that sometimes it is hard to forgive, and when we do forgive it doesn't mean we forget. I told her we need to remember the person is made in God's image, and we can hope and pray they will do better in the future.

     I believe the child will ponder what I…

Lessons Learned From Children

     I watch the children engaged in Sunday School activities. One child, dressed in costume as Ezra, steps up on a wooden platform and reads the Bible aloud to a small group. Another child, pretending to be Ezra the scribe, sits and copies Bible verses. Nearby, children are bowling, knocking over labeled juice bottles and arranging them in Bible book order by division: Law, History, Poetry and Wisdom, and Major…

December Birthdays

I experienced a  childhood (which went into adulthood) of hating to have a birthday so near to Christmas. Now I have the greatest of appreciation for sharing my birthday with celebrations of Jesus' birth. As a Christian, Jesus lives  in my heart so of course it makes sense we would share in celebrations. If a Christmas party happens to fall on my birthday I no longer feel robbed of having the spotlight for the day or evening. I am now in full recognition of the gift He gave to me that is so…

A Prayer Resource

A prayer resource set that I have found effective is the "Power of a Praying Woman Bible" (Stormie Omartian, General Editor) alongside the related "Praying Through the Bible: A Prayer Journal". I found the Bible on sale at Christian Book Distributors and the Journal at Bookcloseouts, both on sale and at reasonable prices. The study Bible has a feature, Going Deeper, in which Stormie suggests a passage to read and then she has commentary on it. I read both the passage and what she has to say…

Discipleship on Twitter?

Does anyone have ideas about utilizing Twitter for discipleship? I am using it to share Bible verses, and photos with thoughts about God's creation. I also post some haiku poetry and try to relate that to God's creation in some way. It is my way of trying to get people to think about God's place in the world and their lives in relation to Him. This is more like a form of evangelism in 144 spaces. How can Twitter be used as a discipleship tool?

  • God unites hearts from all over for our good and His glory. Have a blessed day my new friend in Christ.
  • Thanks, Janice. I'll need that extra hour to finish catching up on the network. I was without internet the past two days! I'm behind . . . glad to get to know you.
  • Janice, Thanks for your response, that book has been reccomended to me before, I have to make time to find it where I am. I am living in a new state, and am getting use to the neighborhood as such. I do know of one bookstore,but it is a ways down from where I am living presently, and not just a short hop to it. I will have to find out though if my church also carries it. I have read several books on prayer, and have a book case of several books but they are in another state, and I don't have them presently with me. I have only what I brought.
