Ways to Worship

Praising God is important for Christians today. It is a way to stay connected with God and other Christians. We all come together to worship our King. This is a good way to help uphold you personal relationship with Him. Some people though, have a hard time finding ways to worship, so I made a list:

1. Pray. Prayer is worship because you are talking to God which shows your relationship.

2. Bible Reading. Reading the Word of God connects you with His plan for your life and can give you hope and assurance in times when you doubt.

3. Sing. God loves to hear you sing praises to Him ans shout His name. It is like saying "I appreciate and love you" to the Lord.

4. Dance or Play Instruments. God gives everyone talents and He wants you to use them for His glory.

5. Write or do Art. This is another way to express your love for Him.

6. Kindness. Acting kindly toward others, even when it is hard, brings a smile to our Lord's face.

7. Share. Share the Word of God. This is great because the more saved, the better.

Now no one has an excuse to not worship.

The Coolness Factor

Have you ever done something because you thought it was cool? Or, have you ever refused something or hidden something because you feared it was not cool enough? Well, believe it or not we all have. If you have crazy dress days at school, but instead of dressing crazily, you wear a brand new outfit, or dress differently to match your friends and make everyone else feel uncool. What about coffee, do all of your friends drink coffee except you? Do you bring your wear or hot chocolate out paces in a coffee cup? Or another could be grades. Are you the braniac flunking to fit in? Or, do you struggle with grades and lie about having to go to tutoring or seek outside help? Most of us have either experienced theses situations or one of the many others that are possible. This is all because of what I call the coolness factor. Everyone wants to fit in and be liked, especially by those who the world claims as "popular" and "cool". No one enjoys feeling left out or looked down upon. But, there is away to feel good about who you are without having to feel "cool". If you are a follower of Christ, you should want to stand out. What the world says is in, God probably looks at with a disappointed face. He doesn't want us to conform to what the world wants. God wants us to be like Him, and He does not blend in. So stand out and be the beautifully talented person God designed you to be! And here is a tip; a loop hole to the coolness factor. This probably will go against everything those in the "in" crowd are all about. If you stand out for Christ, you won't have to worry about being liked because you will be outstanding. That's right. Do not look like everyone else, or blend in with the crowd. Stand out, to be outstanding!!!

Have you ever had something happen to you and had a friend say, "Wow, you had good luck!" Well, everything that happens, to you and everyone else, is from God. Nothing happens by chance, everything is from His plan. i have heard it said that if you believe in luck so strong that can do something with a slim chance of happening, you might as well just believe that God did it. So many people say that their was this really strong luck that did something unbelievable that is very rare. But, wouldn't it just be easier to say that God did it. I do not believe in luck because I believe that God can do anything, so why would we even need luck. If God can and does everything that happens, then why even bother to say that it was by chance!
Remember, when you think you are lucky, think again and know that you are blessed, not lucky.

Prayer Requests

Ok everyone, listen close. We, as Christians, need to pray for others. I have decided to make a prayer list. You can email us at and send us prayer requests or stories in your life. If you would like, we could even share your request on the blog. We will only share it if you specify and we will email you, confirming if what you tell us is private or can be publically talked about. And, don't worry, we will not share your name; you do not even need to tell us your real name. We want to pray for you to have God bless your life and the lives of others around you, even if we do not know you.
Please keep on praying!


This is the time of year when no one feels well. My mother just got over sickness. My teacher and classmates aren't feeling their best. Coughs and sniffles are everywhere. this is the time of year when all you want to do is curl up in your pajamas by the fire and watch television.
But, even through all the cold and sickness, we are God's messengers. Instead of shying away when you see people coughing and sniffling, you to them and use it as a teaching opportunity. God can help those who are sick and heal them. When they are home by themselves because they feel a little under the weather, they can come to know God as their friend that will always be with them, even through sickness.

Personalized Prayer

Lord I pray today that you would be with everyone and help them with what they are struggling with. Lord, I struggle with patience and I know others do as well. So, I ask that you give the world patience and help everyone. I ask that everyone's struggles could be submitted to you and that you would help them with all they need help with.
In Jesus' name we pray,

There is always a good quality that you just don't have. Mine is patience. Just ask anyone who knows me and they will tell you that I am not patient. Sometimes I am, but sometimes I am not. I really need help in that field. Patience is a good quality to have. So, tomorrow, I am going to pray for patience in the daily prayer, but you don't have to. If you struggle with something else, pray for that. My prayers are just designed to give you an idea. Remember, the praying is what matters!
