What is “Working Willingly”? Click HERE to learn more.
As part of my last week Faith goals, I has set out to read Psalm 139 – 144 but by Sunday afternoon, had only read 4 of the 6 chapters. So after typing this up, I will get the other 2 read. My other goal was to read chapter 7 of A Plea For More Prayer – A Ministry of Intercession which is part of our February virtual book club assignment. I haven’t completed my reading but have gotten a great deal of encouragement and revelation from what I’ve read so far.
Here’s what I have planned this week.
- Bible Reading: Psalm 132 – 138
- Prayer: Monday – Sunday
- – Prayer with and for my husband
- – Prayer with and for my children
- – Intercessory prayer for my family and others
- -Prayer request from church
- Discipleship: Read Chapter 7 of A Plea For More Prayer – A Ministry of Intercession
