Key Thought

The lives in which Jesus works bring praise to God. So ... are we allowing Jesus to work in our lives, and are we helping bring others to Jesus so he can work in their lives as well?

Today's Prayer

Father, use me to open people's hearts to Jesus. In fact, dear Father, please open my heart to allow Jesus to act with complete authority in my life. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
