“10 If Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness. 11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.”
Sometimes when I am in church a phrase will come to mind that is directly tied to the sermon but that isn’t necessarily a part of the sermon. I often jot those down and go back and look at them at a later time and consider them….
Women want a number of things in life. Some of it lies on the surface like the desire to lose a few pounds, have shinier hair or to make everything that we have pinned on our Pinterest board, but it’s our needs that run through us in a deeper vain. The trouble is that we often become confused, believing that our wants are actually our needs.
We run ourselves ragged with all of our “doing” and we believe that we need to do more so we won’t feel so out of control. It’s why we buy magazines called Real Simple and then work furiously to simplify our lives.
We believe that there is indeed one God. It is through the Bible, which is God’s self-revelation, that we learn He is almighty, infinitely perfect, all-powerful, all-knowing, unchangeable, all-loving, eternally merciful, gracious and infinite in holiness. He is Creator and sustainer of all creation and all life.
He is the only being that exists that does so because He deemed it so, without cause. He was not created. He created all other things by His hand. He is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending.

Friends and family feel threatened by my new faith – How do I reassure them I care just as much for them?
When someone comes to Christ, a desire is created within to do all things to honor (recognize that God is God and we are not; also show our gratitude for His goodness, generosity and grace) God, to offer oneself as an instrument to God’s greatness, generosity, and goodness and to worship God.
The stories we often forget ourselves that reveal and show the impact that World Prayr as a ministry has had. World Prayr’s tagline has always been “Reconnecting a Broken World,” and we believe these short testimonies speak to just that. Over the next few weeks, we will try to share some of these stories and testimonies so you will see the impact that the ministry is having as it works to reconnect.
Perhaps you have a story of how World Prayr has touched your life, uplifted your day and ministered to you.
