Loving Others with Our Prayers

Today is a little different with Kelsi and Dylan in for this Monday Motivation.

Kelsi shared a devotional called “He Will Fight For You”. Our task still is to be prepared for life’s tough tests. To build a ministry, we study, work, and pray. To create beautiful art, we master a skill. To conquer a mountain, we secure our tools and build our strength. Then prepared, we’re more than conquerors through Christ’s strong love. To read more click HERE.

Dylan shared a devotional called “Loving Others with Our Prayers”. God moves through our prayers to accomplish great good in the lives of His people. One of the best ways to love others is to pray for them, because through our prayers we open the door to the help only God can provide. When we pray for others, we love them in His strength. There’s none greater or more loving than him. to read the whole devotional click HERE.
