~ Everyday Bible, Everyday Prayer ~
“Read your bible pray everyday…you will grow, grow, grow. If you don’t read your bible and pray everyday your will shrink, shrink, shrink”.  This simple children’s song speaks volumes of spiritual truths.  Our spiritual tool the Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth requires our daily attention as we read God’s word.  His word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path. –Psalms 119:105.  This road map for life, this compass that gives us directions, will never mislead or give us wrong information.  The BIBLE has answers all of our questions.  2 Timothy 3:16-17 says: All scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives.  It straightens us out and teaches us to do what is right.  It is God’s way of preparing us in every way; fully equipped for every good thing God wants us to do.  The importance of reading your bible daily is priceless.  Along with communing with God through the word is communicating with Him through Prayer.  Good morning Father, thank you for keeping me and waking me to a new day, order my steps today that I may do Your will. “Pray without ceasing” (stopping). Always be “on line”, with God so when the spirit prompts you to pray, no matter where you are, agree with Him through prayer. –Romans 8:26. We should never want to stop growing spiritually, so “read your bible, pray every day you will grow, grow, grow!”
Our Father which art I heaven, Hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive them that trespass against us.  And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil.  For thine is the kingdom, The power and the glory, For ever and ever more. Amen.
