Grace, Love, and Mercy

During our earthly lives Doug and I have made many mistakes. Through the years, GOD has worked mightily in and through both of our lives. As we have stumbled and crawled through many valleys, we have both learned much. With the crest of each mountain we rejoice. Our precious LORD has extended much grace, love, and mercy along the way. Neither of us deserve GOD's grace, love, or mercy, yet HE continues to pour it out in and through our lives. 

Today, as you go about your journey consider extending grace, love, and mercy to those who don't deserve it. Allow GOD to use you in unlikely places to transform the lives of those who are broken and unlovable. You never know what a difference you will make until you try! 

By HIS mercy and in the grip of HIS grace,

Andrea Bowling Perdue

Talk With God
Don’t make prayer complicated. There are certainly many things the Bible teaches about prayer. We should pray with respect. We should pray to a loving Father. We should pray with sins forgiven. We should pray in Jesus’ name and according to His will. All of these things are taught in the Bible. Keep these things in mind while praying, but don’t complicate prayer.
Talk with God as if you are having a conversation with a friend. Yes, He is King of creation, but He is also a caring and loving Father.
Pray Aloud
God will hear you if you pray silently, but praying aloud helps you to stay focused. When you pray aloud you force yourself to think intelligently about your words. Praying silently is a quick way to zone out and lose focus and intensity in your prayer time.
Find a Prayer Partner : The majority of your daily prayer should be a personal time of communion with God; however, it is also helpful to share requests with others who can carry a prayer burden with you. You can both rejoice over victories through prayer. consultoria medicina pediatria medicina medicina dermatologia veterinaria veterinaria veterinarian online especialista abogado españa abogado colombia abogado mexico abogado españa derecho psicologia medicina psicologia derecho psicologo The Bible even speaks about us joining together with others in prayer. We can bring requests to God on an individual basis, but Jesus admonishes the disciples in Matthew 18:19 and 20 that there is more power in going to God as a group rather than only as individuals.
I hope these 10 tips help you in your quest to pray more consistently. Having daily communion with God is a great way to help you grow spiritually and become more mature in your Christianity.
