Here are two small works that my wife and I enjoyed for our devotionals together.  You might find them edifying as well.

Michael Reeves. Enjoy your prayer life.  Leyland, UK: 10Publishing, March 10th 2014.  46 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster | Amazon

Are you looking for a good book that would increase your appetite for prayer or maybe a work that would encourage you to think more biblically about prayer?  Personally I think most people can always grow in prayer; I know that’s certainly true for me.  This book is what I would recommend!  Michael Reeves have written other helpful spiritual books for the general reading audience and this work is no different; it is biblically solid while being practical but practical in a worshipful and God reverential way.

We continue with our blog’s “wee-kids Wednesdays” and this week’s review of children’s book is a Christian book on prayer that kids and parents would appreciate!

Nancy Guthrie. What Every Child Should Know About Prayer.  Leyland, UK: 10Publishing, August 6th 2018.  144 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This was a helpful book on prayer written by the author Nancy Guthrie.  According to the product information online the audience of the book is intended for kids ages 3-7.  For younger kids that means their parents will have to read it to them while older kids can also read this book by themselves.  I read this to my daughters as bed time reading and they enjoyed it.  In addition as a pastor who is concern for biblical contents of Christian books I thought this book’s theology was doctrinally sound.

When I look at my Christian life I think the key to changing is a regular habit of confessing to God. Not that I arrived but I believe this is a means of grace for change that is often neglected.

This is from my daily Greek exercise of sight reading many months ago, courtesy of Vincent S Artale Jr.

Our text is from the Greek translation of 1 Thessalonians 5:16.  Here is my translation:

“SENTENCE 3 [TP Τὸ λοιπὸν TP] προσεύχεσθε ‹ ἀδελφοί › περὶ ἡμῶν
Finally brethren pray for us

SUB-POINT ἵνα [TP ὁ λόγος τοῦ κυρίου TP] τρέχῃ καὶ δοξάζηται καθὼς ‹+ καὶ πρὸς
in order that the word of the Lord will spread and be glorified just as also for

ὑμᾶς +›”

I’m still trying to get over jet lag.  Hence this much more later post for today!

This is from my daily Greek exercise of sight reading some few months ago, courtesy of Vincent S Artale Jr.

Our text is from the Greek translation of 1 Thessalonians 1:2.  Here is my translation:

“SENTENCE 2 Εὐχαριστοῦμεν τῷ θεῷ πάντοτε περὶ πάντων ὑμῶν
We give thanks to God always concerning all of you

ELABORATION μνείαν ποιούμενοι ἐπὶ τῶν προσευχῶν ἡμῶν
Making mention in our prayers

ELABORATION ἀδιαλείπτως”

Here are some observations:

Note: This is a guest post since presently I am overseas.  This is by  Elijah Holston.  He has a store website here

I go on long bike rides every Saturday morning, and I have done this for nearly a year straight, (I define “long” as somewhere between 25-50 miles,). Now, when I first started doing this it has hard for me to peddle my bike for any more than two miles, and I can guarantee you that back then the idea of riding my bike 50 miles never entered my mind. But because I gradually increased the distance of my Saturday bike rides over the course of several months, I found it much easier to finish a 50 mile bike ride without being exhausted.
