In order for [prayer] to be effective, it has to be a part of who we are. Dylan Marshall I don’t really think it’s possible to be bad at prayer … if you’re listening to God and you feel like you’re saying what the Holy Spirit is giving you. Xena Pennington
Happy New Year Ignite Church! Our New Year’s Day celebration featured messages by Jocelyn Dale and Xena Penning, and surprise comments by Pastors Sean and Amy Todd, Patrick and Dawn Steele, and Elder Ken Bibee.
There comes a time in our life when Jesus says, ‘”Enough. There’s no more excuses. We’ve cried about this, we’ve wept, we’ve held each other, I’ve blessed you, I’ve given you grace, but now you’ve got to give up, get up, and move on.”‘
Because if we don’t, we’ll remain in a place when God wants us to move forward. It’s just out of His love. God doesn’t want any of [the] potential in our lives to be lost because of temptation. Sean Todd
