I ask not only on behalf of these, but also on behalf of those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one.

As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.

-- John 17:20-21, NRSV

Prayer, Plain and Simple

Sarah McKinney1 Thessalonians 5:17 The Message “Pray all the time”


I’ve never made a New Year’s resolution.  Maybe it’s because there wasn’t anything I’ve needed to drastically change… or because I didn’t think I would have the stamina to carry it out for a whole year. But this year I’m going to step out and make a commitment up front on something that is really worth it!


Prayer, and thus my relationship with God, is going to get more of my attention and time.  Prayer is something I can become passionate about, unlike the usual resolutions.   As I respond to God’s call I plan to explore the many resources available to help me along the way.


I usually practice something before I commit, so I can know that I can do it.  Therefore I am making plans that will assist me as I follow through on my resolution for the whole year.
