Here are just a few of the things I find myself praying about during our annual month of prayer and fasting.
Just another couple days and the Year of our Lord 2019 will take its last breath. It is a time to look back, as well as a time to look forward. As you look back, ask yourself what you learned this year that kept you going in the right direction. What can you do to keep going walking the faith path? I recommend a discipline that will enhance your life and make you the person that the Word of God says you already are.

How many Christmas stars do you think are made or commercially sold each year?
Who was it that followed, what they called, the Star in the East? You, of course, know the answer, and most of the world knows the story of the Wise Men from the East.
I have always been fascinated by this verse from the pen of Solomon the wise, found in Ecclesiastes 3:10-12 - “I have seen the burden that God has laid on men to occupy them. He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also SET ETERNITY in the hearts of men, yet they cannot fathom the work God has done from beginning to end. I know that there is nothing better for men than to rejoice and do good while they live...”
There is a familiar buzz in the air concerning the Holiday Season that is fast coming upon us. For instance, can you close your eyes and tell me what a pumpkin pie smells like, or can you tune your taste buds like tuning your car radio to 700 WLW. We are here all over again at the most wonderful time of the year.
Will you join me in calling out for great and mighty things? A friend of mine, Scott Hinkle, jogged my memory when it comes to what An Appeal to Heaven requires on our part.
