Prayfit Daily:

Hope Can Change Everything

Hope. When the world mentions the word “hope,” its tone is usually one of question or doubt. I hope I get an “A”. I hope she likes me. I hope nobody notices. I hope…. But the Gospel tells a different story. The Bible says that strength comes to those who hope in the Lord. No question […]


A Prayer of Hope

Yesterday we started living again, breathing again, hoping and running; but not away. And with so many prayer requests, there’s no better place for us to go. Leading us in prayer is Rev. Scotty Smith. “Dear heavenly Father, my stuffed-up head and slightly sore throat are mere irritants, compared to the health crises many of […]


Hope Week

Remember the scene in Forest Gump when young Forest is being chased by those mean bullies? Classic. “Run Forest!” Well, I love the priceless moment when his leg braces start breaking off and falling to the ground. The look of recognition on his face in that instant – wide-eyed joy, borderline unbelief and unconfined exuberance […]


Off-Script

Hey everyone, if you’ll allow me, I’d like to go off-script as we finish the week. I just got home from the radio panel discussion in Hollywood on “God, Religion and Spirituality” that I mentioned yesterday, and I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for your outpouring of prayers and […]


If Necessary, Use Words

Blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it. (Luke 11:28) I believe it was Francis of Assisi who said, “Preach Christ. If necessary, use words.” Meaning of course, our actions to an unbelieving world matter more than what we say. Simple truth, amen? But I also believe in order to spread the […]


On My Knees

The wonderful and talented Christian artist Jaci Velasquez once sang: “There are days when I feel the best of me is ready to begin. Then there are days that I feel I’m letting go and soaring on the wind. Cause I’ve learned in laughter or in pain how to survive…I get on my knees. There […]


Honoring Our Veterans

Today, we pause to humbly offer our gratitude to those who have served or are currently in uniform for the cause of freedom at home and abroad. The dangers you face and the sacrifices you and your families make are gestures that are not lost on us. If you know a veteran, reach out to […]


Benchwarmer

“So Sarah laughed to herself.” –Genesis 18:12 Read: Genesis 18 Benchwarmer. Not something that sat well with me. But during my sophomore year in high school, I endured it for the first time in my life. See, I was a baseball player, and a good one. But basketball? I probably should’ve hung up the Air […]


He Has Perfect Pitch

“Enter his gates with thanksgiving and enter his courts with praise; be thankful in your hearts to him and bless his holy name.” –Psalm 100:4 During their years at Baylor University, Brooke and Mattie were like peas and carrots; always together. Not only were they roommates, they went to the same classes, same after-school activities. […]


He Gave Her Water

“But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again.” –John 4:14 Remember drinking from the water hose outside as kids? Nothing better, right? After football games, baseball practice or riding bikes, we had the kind of unbearable thirst only known to children. Whoever got there first knew to let the hot […]
