YOUR STORY of the week: Chelsea says, “I look forward to the emails each day. I love seeing how the Word is alive and how certain verses show up at just the right time! For my sister’s baby shower, I gave her a prayer journal that I had started with several prayers with her son’s name written in, one that she can keep adding to as he gets older. After the baby was born, I stayed with my sister the first few nights in the hospital. Once when he was crying and couldn’t be calmed, my sister pulled out his journal that she had packed in her hospital bag. She started reading and praying for him by name, and after just a few words, he began to calm down.” What’s YOUR story to share? Let us know how you are using the prayers or how you are sharing them with others! Has God answered a prayer of yours? Email us with YOUR story!
