• When someone does something nice for you, do you drop them a card, give them a handshake or hug, or return the favor with a helping hand when they need one?

God continues to change things today, if only people seek Him.

• Pastor Pullens preached “Power in prayer-But when I prayed ...” (Romans 12:12 and Philippians 4:5-7). Sampson prayed and God gave him his power back one last time. Elijah prayed and called fire down from heaven. The three Hebrew boys prayed and God showed up in the fiery furnace. Often, we don’t receive an answer or what we need from God because we aren’t taking the time to ask or seek Him for it. God will always come through. Set aside time each day, have a relationship with Him and begin taking your needs to him in prayer.
