Today is the National Day of Prayer. To watch this year’s theme video by Rebecca St. James, go here:
But I also encourage you to make prayer a part of EVERY day of the month. To help you do this, I’ve created a THREE-MINUTE PRAYER GUIDE.
Here is how you use the three minutes:
Minute 1: Look up the Scripture and prayerfully read it.
Minute 2: Pray for yourself, that you may listen and obey.
Minute 3: Listen. What is God speaking to your heart?
Here you go: 31 Days of Three-Minute Prayers!
