National Day Of Prayer for Unity

Friendship Bible Church will be open from 5-9PM this evening if you wish to come by and pray. Church family, let's keep prayers before the throne nonstop this evening!

"Prayerlessness is the fundamental sin of the busy Christian." (R. Kent Hughes)

"Prayer can never be in excess." (Charles H. Spurgeon)

"If you think God is answering fewer prayers these days, maybe it's just that fewer people are praying." (Unknown)

"A little prayer to our big God can have a huge impact." (Unknown)

"Much prayer, much power. Little prayer, little power. No prayer, no power." (Unknown)

"Satan trembles when he sees the weakest Christian on his knees." (William Cowper)

"Prayer is an acknowledgment that our need of God's help is not partial but total." (Alistair Begg)

"Heaven is full of answers to prayer for which no one ever bothered to ask!" (Billy Graham)

"Pray and let God worry." (Martin Luther)

My Favorite Once a Year Post!

This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief. (I Timothy 1:15 NKJV)

I've published this same blog posting for the last few years. Each year it gets more precious. Praise the Lord.

It was May 3, 1970. In just 24 hours one of this area's most well-known historical events would occur - the shootings at Kent State University. But on May 3, something happened that didn't make the news, and is unknown to all but a select few now. On that day, a twelve year old boy experienced the most important event in his personal history. That boy was me, and on May 3, 1970, I trusted Christ as my Savior. I am, spiritually, 48 years old today. And so it is a special day as I look back over the journey Christ has led me on so far - a journey that has included both ups and downs, successes and failures, victories and defeats. But one thing is certain. I am more sure today of His love for me than I have ever been. He promised, "I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee." (Hebrews 13:5) I can testify after 48 years of walking with Him, that He never has, and He never will.

“Although my memory's fading, I remember two things very clearly: I am a great sinner and Christ is a great Savior.” (John Newton)
