Pocket Prayers: Part Five


Take a word or verse or idea and tuck it in your pocket or purse to guide you through the week. Ask God to show you how this word or phrase speaks into your life. Watch for mention of your word or idea in other contexts. Trust that God is present to you at all times, no matter what is happening.

Then he led his people out like sheep, took his flock safely through the wilderness. He took good care of them; they had nothing to fear.


So this is my prayer; that your love will flourish and that you will not only love much but well.


This is God’s work; We rub our eyes, we can hardly believe it.
