In a word... HUMILITY!!!
“And if My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land. “Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place.” — 2 Chronicles 7:14–15
Prayer is the soul’s admission of insufficiency. It is the language of dependence. It is the heart’s cry for help. It reveals: What we think of God. What we think of ourselves. What we think of what God thinks of us. Who we are looking to. Who and what we are living for.
Prayer is the language of God.
This week as you READ and RESPOND to the Word, PRAY that the Spirit would reveal how these readings help you see that God wants our humility but never wants us to live in humiliation.

Be sure you are getting the short In the Word Today devotional written for each day's reading. The email gets sent out early each morning. The sign up form is on the bottom of the home page of our website.
You get a link that that day's reading and a little insight the Holy Spirit gave to me on how this reading adds to our conversation about the Sunday teaching.
This is all you need to participate in our D-Groups!
The Word of God, the Holy Spirit, and some way to record what God reveals to you in your time with Him.
If you have not gotten a copy of the book 'The Secret to Prayer' by Dr. Kyle DiRoberts, you can get one at the church building or on Amazon. This will really help flavor this time we will spend focused on prayer.
Keep looking UP! — Luke 21.28
