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!

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.

The Week of Prayer
