Diamond Rio - In God We Still Trust

This song, "In God We Still Trust," is from a Las Vegas Diamond Rio concert. At their first performance they received a resounding standing ovation, and continue to do so every time they perform it!

As the Fourth of July draws near I hope you enjoy Diamond Rio's moving testimony, a tribute to America, it's people, and the God under which America stands.

To listen, just click on the YouTube bar on the left. Then, if after listening you feel you'ld like to share it with friends and loved ones, I encourage you to do so.

#24 – The Beginner’s Prayer

If you believe in God but don’t know how to pray, begin with silent prayer. The Bible says, “Be still, and know that I am God.”

First, get away from all distractions. Find a scenic place to sit, or just close your eyes, and be still.

Second, let your mind wander and wonder – to a sunrise, the fragile loveliness of nature, or goodness you’ve seen in people. Imagine the source from which all good comes. Let the vision of God grow large in you mind and in your soul. The greatest saints have found God in such prayerful moments.

The Beginner’s Prayer is simply this: to enjoy thinking about God.

#23 - The 5-Second Prayer

Five seconds can change your life.
How? you ask.
By learning and using this little prayer.

“Lord, help me to honor you in all of my relationships. Amen

Friends, Godly relationships are built on love and truth (1 Cor 13:4-7).

Learning to be honest in relationships requires a spiritual attitude adjustment.

Why? Because, so much in life is built on lies – the lies we tell ourselves, the lies we believe about others, the lies of our secret life, the lies we hide from God.

Start your spiritual attitude adjustment with this 5-second prayer.
“Lord, help me to honor you in all of my relationships. Amen”

This little prayer can help you adjust your attitude about God, about yourself, about those you live and work with, about people with different experiences, values and cultures. This little prayer can change your life.

Honor God in all your relationship and, believe me, miracles will follow.

# 22 - Opportunity Prayer

Opportunity Prayer is not the attempt to get what you want.
Opportunity Prayer is giving God the opportunity to do what God wants.

The prayer of Jesus on the night before he was crucified is the shining example. After asking his Father in Heaven to release him from the torture soon to come, Jesus said, "nevertheless, not my will but Thine be done."

The thing to be sought in prayer is the will of God. Opportunity Prayer is you opening up of your life to the opportunities God has to set before you.

Passion and Promise

The excitement around here is about missions. Janell just left on a 2-week mission to Zambia in Southern Africa. We had a huge and spirit-filled send off Sunday May 25th. We are so proud of her. We sent her off with hugs, prayers, well-wishes and super-serious promises to keep her in prayer.

To help us keep our prayer promises Janell gave each of us a short piece of ribbon as a prayer reminder. She asked us to tie it or tape it someplace where we see it often every day.

Several of us also formed prayer teams. Each team of 2, 3, or 4 will meet once or twice during her trip for 30 minutes of prayer. We are praying for Janell.

Plus, while thinking about Janell, we are trying very hard to focus on God’s great purpose which is to reach the whole world (Mark 16:15). It’s hard to think that big and realize that we and Janell are just one tiny little but very significant part of God's global plan. God is making a difference, and we are blessed to be a part of it. How awesome is that!
