The Hunger Games~A partial review

I've be desperate for fiction lately, and I mean really desperate. For several months I've toyed with reading The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Yesterday I put in my Ebookfling.com loan request, today I received the book!

Scriptural Prayers

To be frank with you, sometimes I really don't know how to pray and what to pray. Sometimes it feels like anything I have to say is either not coming boldly enough before the throne or coming brashly.  I have to wonder if other believers sometimes face the same predicament.
Something that really helped me was using New Testament prayers; around six months ago, in the course of several nights, I nabbed pretty much every prayer in the epistles and sticky-noted them. So nowwhen I want to pray for my siblings, parents, friends, etc. I can flip through the sticky notes and pray my way through. It was a perfect fit for me.

In the last two days I felt compelled to make a PDF version(It turned into two) of my prayer sticky notes. I left the references with the prayers as well as breaking them down into two different formats: Prayers by Scripture section, and Individual Requests.

If you've ever wondered what to pray for me, or what I'd like pray for, please, pray these lists for me. Then tell me, please! It will make my day.

The slow down



Hey there folks,

So as you've probably guessed, I haven't completed the seven sermon challenge. Here's the jist of what happened: When I tried to listen my brain refused :(; at that point, life got busier and more gaming happened.

Also, after the required three day break, I started a new antibiotic, or rather, antibiotics. Today was the third day on Clindamycin, the first antibiotic of the four. Since it was the third day I took three. Fear not! On day ten I won't be taking ten ;) I cap my dosage at three.


So that's what's going on with me, in a nutshell. What about you?

Books read recently:

Sermon days #5 and #6!



Even though I didn't get a post up for sermon day #5, indeed I did it! In fact, on day #5(Yesterday) I started an eight part series walking through Galatians.

Sermon day #4!

 I just finished listening to Desperate Prayer~David Platt. It was a God ordained message to hear; it was an emotional message to hear. There were two separate times in the message just for prayer and worship. For this man who's theology is always outrunning his emotional connection it was good; for this man who's been praying to be made for Christlike it was timely.

The sermon piqued one main question in my mind, and it's one that's probably going to take some mulling; and that's ok.


I trust the message will speak to you as well,
Millard

Sermon day #2!

It's 10:20 PM and I just finished my message for the day.



Fasting that changes the world~David Platt

Sure glad I buckled down and got the second half done, this evening, though! The message was far reaching but a majority of it was focused on Paul and Barnabas' journey from Antioch and worked through their journey and pointed out specific prayer focuses we can use praying for any of our brothers and sisters around the world. Some of the references might not make sense to you...but they did in my mind when I jotted them down ;)
