April showers bring May flowers… Often, we have to try to find the positive, because rain and storms have negative connotations—but the truth is that water is life-giving. Pray with me this month for rivers of living water and for other prayers inspired by the ideas of water and rain.
God promised to make all things new. We are new creations in Christ. We put off the old and put on the new. The Bible is full of references… so let’s take this opportunity—the new year— to shake up our prayer lives, while we’re already thinking about new beginnings. Beware, though: in keeping with that idea, the dates are all out of order, and some are sideways or even upside down!
On November 1, my friend Jayme H. Mansfield is releasing her new novel, RUSH, a story based on the life of her great-great grandmother in the 1893 Oklahoma Land Run. In turn, the timeless themes of that story inspired my calendar for this month. It’s all about taking risks, starting over, finding treasure, having courage, and not running around in circles. Let’s pray that God leads us to new frontiers as we pray together this month.
