If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

The 21 Day Prayer

In his sermon today, my husband challenged us to pray the following prayer by A. W. Tozer for the next 21 days.

"Heavenly Father, you are in charge of everything that will happen to me today-whether it be good or bad, positive or negative. Please make me thankful for everything that happens to me today. Amen."

He said we should pray this the first thing in the morning, maybe before even getting out of bed. He guarantees this will start changing our attitudes. Life may not get better, but our attitudes will. In fact, very probably we will be tested during this time. But after all, it's through the tests of life that we grow.

I truly believe I need my attitude adjusted, so I intend to do this challenge. And I dare each of you to also participate with me and we can talk about the results in a few weeks.
