Mount Hermon Prayers, Day one

Would you pray today for safe travel to Mount Hermon and a heart full of insight to give to those I’ll be mentoring the next two days? I would really appreciate it.

As my friend Cec Murphey says, I need to lay down all that stuff, all the worries, all the fretting, and let Jesus manage my career. So, Jesus, take it all. Take […]

Weeds

The first time I flew home to Texas, I wept. We’d been in the midst of turmoil on the field from every possible angle. I walked into church and couldn’t stop crying. I’d speak, get three or four words out and burst into tears. The Lord was gracious then to send me many, many friends […]
