Today’s message was titled “Power of Prayer” and the text was Acts 4:23-31. Four principles that help us to have power in prayer are; 1) Pray in Unity (Acts 4:19-20, 23-25, & Ephesians 6:18), 2) Pray with Authority (Acts 4:25-28), 3) Pray with Intensity (Acts 4:29-30), and 4) Pray Expectantly (Acts 4:31).
We (my mom, brother, and I) went to the fireworks we were going to go to yesterday. The fireworks were in the town where my oldest sister lives. My brother-in-law met us there with his oldest and youngest.
I did some laundry and read outside some.
I did some more laundry. I sat in my mom’s swing and read.
I have no idea how I got bruises on the inside of my left arm. They were gone after a day or two. [FYI: It’s hard to take a picture of the inside of your upper arm even if it isn’t your dominate arm.]
I finished Beyond Tuesday Morning (which I started reading June 25th) and started reading Even Now. Both books are by Karen Kingsbury
My middle three nephews were here. I took my brother to work then came back here and played Wii with my nephews. My brother-in-law got off early and came and got the boys. I played some Wii by myself. My mom and I went and got some groceries at the store and then went to Walmart to get some gas. We took the groceries home then went and got my brother from work.
Happy Birthday America!
I made some granola bites (here is a recipe similar to what I used –I can’t find the exact one I used). I omitted the flax seeds since I didn’t have any. Around 2:30 p.m. my brother, mom, and I left to go to a nearby town for their fireworks. Our church feeds supper to the volunteers there. So, we go and help set things up for that. After we were done eating and cleaned up, we watched the fireworks. I like going there because they set the fireworks off over a lake.
