Prayer Thoughts for June - Men's Health Month

Men's Health Month

Who is the most influential man in your life? No, seriously. Think about it! It doesn't have to be your father or even a relative. He can even be someone younger than you. What man has made a difference in your life? How would you feel if that man was suddenly ripped away from you - forever! How would you feel if you knew that his death could have been prevented?

June is National Rebuilding Month - Stop Running from God!

June is National Rebuilding Month - Stop Running from God!

Moses ran from his heritage, not wanting to accept responsibility. Elijah ran, fearing for his life and forgetting God. Jonah ran from God, fearful of what was being asked of him. David ran, quite frequently, from other men, forgetting to ask the Lord for guidance. Jeremiah protested his appoint to prophet. Esther hid, scared to publicly acknowledge who and what she was. Andrew, Bartholomew (Nathanael), James, James, John, Jude (Thaddeus), Matthew (Levi), Philip, Simon, and Thomas all ran in fear the night Jesus was arrested. And Peter denied Christ, three times! Saul persecuted those who stood for Christ.

Prayer Thoughts for June - Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Month

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Month

John sat up, swinging his feet off the bed onto the floor. He rested his elbows on his knees, rubbing his face with his hands. His night had been like many others he had recently; what seemed like a few minutes of peaceful sleep, between the unpleasant memories that haunted him. Once he found himself awake, crouching and peering around the bed towards door, grabbing for the weapon that wasn’t there, before remembering where he was, and where he wasn’t. John shook his head, as if to clear the memories, before pushing himself up to get ready for the day. John was hyper-aware of his surroundings. He kept an eye on his coffee timer, so that he would not be startled when it went off. He still flinched when it went off, as if struck. Upon hearing a knock at the door, John’s first reaction was to take cover, already crouching and moving, before it registered that it was simply Nicole, his friend, at the door, whom he had asked to stop by at this exact time.
