Prayfit Daily:

Let It Start With Me

Not sure about you, but I sure have enjoyed spending a few days focusing on a single verse. I know Paul’s use of an athlete has a special place in many of your hearts, but do you know the rest of the verse? I – for one – would have been fine had Paul stopped […]


Live, Eat and Sleep

There he is. He’s been up all night. If you’ve been with us the last couple of days, you know what he’s writing and to whom. He’s almost to the end of one of his letters. The rhythmic regularity of the occasional drop of water echoes off the cold walls of the prison, and the light of […]


Like An Athlete

Where were we? Oh, yes. Under the light of the lamp; mid-letter. As we look over his shoulder, we find Paul telling his readers about the need for self-discipline. Not in order to earn salvation, but for the eternal rewards of reflecting the Lord in life. “I discipline my body like an athlete…” In the book […]


The Light of the Lamp

Every once in a while we’ll begin on Monday by talking about a principle — such as grace or faith — and we’ll embrace it all week, infusing it into each day’s message of health. Welcome to such a week. But rather than circle our wagons around a singular truth or Godly characteristic, a verse […]


He’s Strong, I’m Weak

“For by grace you have been saved and that not of yourselves, it is a gift of God, not of works, lest any man should boast.” –Ephesians 2:8-9 This pursuit of health. For you, maybe it’s another day in the gym, looking at that same row of dumbbells. Or maybe it’s walking another lap around […]


The Gospel of Peace

“..and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.” –Ephesians 6:15 We’ve all been fitted for shoes at one time or another, and if you’re flat-footed like me, you know immediately whether a shoe is gonna work or not. As kids, it was important for them to measure our […]


Little Is Much

I was in maybe the first or second grade, and Mom had given me a dollar to go shopping for Daddy at our school’s make-shift Christmas store. I remember walking the narrow aisles, squeezing the life out of that dollar like it was something really precious. And I suppose it was, because it represented my […]


Gumption

“Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air.” —1 Corinthians 9:26 I’m definitely old-fashioned, but who reading this remembers tryouts? I thought of it when I asked, “Who won?” to a young boy and his mom as they came back from his soccer game. […]


Thorn Bushes and Dog Leashes

“Look to the Lord and His strength; seek His face always.” –1 Chronicles 16:11 Amidst my usual helping of chaotic and unpredictable mornings, there is one constant in the day’s beginning: Josey. Josey is our chocolate Labrador…our very strong and excited chocolate lab. The apple of my eye. Blink blink. Each morning Josey acts as […]


Win Ugly

Romans 8:28 says, “All things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” Is there a more inspiring verse for us during adversity week? Now, does that verse mean our job situation will be transformed? Does it mean our illness will disappear or that our […]
