Vonda Skelton spoke of Marlene Bagnull’s Write His Answer years ago so I wasted no time picking up my own copy. After all, when Vonda speaks, I listen! I’ve featured quotes from Marlene’s book and even used it for a Friday Fave in 2011. Yes, it’s that good.

So grab yourself a copy and head to the nearest hammock anchored to an old oak tree—and enjoy!

A favorite excerpt from Write His Answer:
“First things first,” the Lord spoke gently to my spirit. I need to constantly recognize and affirm that while writing is my work, “I can do it only because Christ’s mighty energy is at work within me” (Col. 1:29). This means the first thing is time to connect with Him in prayer and Bible study. I’m reminded how Martin Luther said that the more he had to do, the more time he spent in prayer. –Marlene Bagnull, Write His Answer

DAY 12: PRAYER

Wonder awaits us in our prayer lives. Set aside twenty minutes today to talk to God, but instead of conversing with God as you normally do, consider limiting prayers to three words each. Take note of the challenges and joys you experience. Reflect on what it means to be intentional with each word as you lift your praises and petitions to God and rediscover the wonder of prayer.  –Margaret Feinburg, Wonderstruck

How can I pray for YOU today?
