"...So let's keep praying."

This weekend we watched a movie called "The List." We hadn't heard of it before, but it was rated PG and the setting was the South Carolina Low Country. So being a Carolina Low Country Girl, I thought it must be good! "The List" did not disappoint. In fact, there's this one scene that got my attention. So much so, that we stopped the movie in order to write the lines down. (The memory is not good these days, so you understand the urgency!)
In the scene an older, retired missionary lady is talking to a younger lady about her prayer room. She says to her, "One thing I've learned over the years is that God's people and God's enemies make the same mistake. They both underestimate the power of prayer. So let's keep praying."

I've been reading and thinking a lot about prayer lately, and this is a mistake I don't want to make. I've been learning that prayer is not just a one-time conversation in my day, it's on-going, continuous even. So in light of that, I'm going to keep on praying! Will you?

Hey Bridget!
Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. Yes, Behind Those Eyes has a pretty indepth Bible Study included in it in the back of the book. I would love for you to consider it for your Gather and Grow group! I think you would find that it brings out some really great discussion and talks about things all women deal with. I have heard back from women all over who are doing it for their Bible Study groups who are really relating to it.

Thanks for the interest and "nice to meet you!"
Lisa :)
