Prayer is Effective

"And this is the confidence that we have in him,
that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask,
we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him."
1 John 5:14-15

Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving
let your requests be made known unto God.
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding,
shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6-7

"The effectual fervent prayer
of a righteous man
availeth much."

James 5:16

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace,
that we may obtain mercy,

and find grace to help in time of need.

Hebrews 4:16

FNF March 20

Symon & Jeff & Symon have very graciously offered to host this week, even at the last minute. I don't know yet what you could bring to help with dinner, but things that are always helpful:

  • fruit
  • juice
  • paper plates
Last week we spent most of our time in special prayer for Tancia's family and Sarah's boards and the other things that weigh heavy on our hearts. This week we'll continue on with our study of the 10 Commandments.

Hope you all have felt God's presence with you this week.

Don't forget to VOTE for camping soon!

Camping Trip? Anyone?!

OK, it's time to decide on another camping trip!

Here are some options and majority rules. (That means that whatever weekend and whatever location gets the most votes, that's where we go) SO VOTE! Please!!
  • Port St. Joseph State Park - located in the Gulf of Mexico on the "Forgotten Coast" area of Florida. It's quiet, gorgeous, warm, and full of great campsites and peaceful white beaches. $20 per campsite, water and electricity included, bathroom & shower nearby. (About 6 hour drive from Birmingham)
  • St. Andrews State Park - also in the Gulf of Mexico. White sand beaches, close to Panama City so a little less quiet and private. $24 per campsite, water and electricity, bathroom and shower nearby. (About 5 hour drive from Birmingham)
  • DeSoto State Park - in North East Alabama, we went here last fall and camped in a big field and hiked around the waterfalls. This time, we can camp in the regular campsites with water, electricity and showers. $25 per campsite. (About 1.5-2 hours from Birmingham)
  • Gulf Shores State Park - also in the Gulf of Mexico. White sandy beaches, close to Mobile Bay and Pensacola. $25-28 per campsite, water, electricity and bathhouse included. (About a 5 hour drive from Birmingham)
Please check your calendar before voting. Because of the distance involved, I would recommend taking off Friday so there is more time to enjoy the beach. It will be worth it, I promise, but make sure you are choosing the weekend that works best with your schedule!

Please vote ON THE SIDEBAR POLL! I'll be checking it frequently to see what's winning! If you haven't been camping before, just talk to someone who has gone. I'm sure they'll tell you to come join us!!!
Have a great week everyone!
