Christmas Give-Away-Winner Announced!!


Ok...I can't wait until Friday like I said I would. I really want to give this structured prayer journal away now! So in my fancy old-fashion kind of way again, I had my youngest daughter Sarah do the honor to pull the winners name from a bowl.....














and the winner is.......





April! I am sorry my pictures are so dark to not show the name that well. April, I hope God blesses you richly with this journal. He knew it would be you to win this and He has something special planned for you and Him in using it!! I am off to a Christain bookstore to see what I can add to this (pen, fillers, etc ) and then I'll mail it to you. Send me your mailing address to my e-mail @ in.his.grace@live.com)

Now my blog friends, I need your help...I always begin each year with a new "life verse", a piece of scripture that helps me focus on what I feel God wants me to accomplish in the new year. My scripture for 2008 was Isaiah 61:1-3 and in a future blog I will testify how satan fought me all year long with this Scripture and how the Lord prevailed with it in my life. This year I feel God is focusing me on two areas I need to address. First, my prayer life, and second, my ability to evangelize and bring lost souls to Him. I am looking for a verse or verses that address the power of prayer. I talk to God all the time but I am not as faithful to spend time quietly, behind closed doors, on my knees. I want to be more diligent in this in this new year. I have found tons of Scripture related to witnessing but my primary focus is to be more structured in my prayer life.
So, if a particular piece of scripture fitting for this comes to mind, please share it with me....
Merry CHRISTmas everyone!!

The only verse that comes to mind right now is:
James 5:16 The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.

But then you already knew that. ☺
Love,
Paula
