From the Mitch & Allen comedy sketch “Batman

Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at His disposition, and listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts.” ~Mother Teresa

“First open your heart, then open your Bible.” ~Rick Warren

“When asked, ‘What is more important: Prayer or Reading the Bible?’ I ask, ‘What is more important: Breathing in or Breathing out?’” ~C.H. Spurgeon

“Only those who throw away their lives for my sake and for the sake of the Good News will ever know what it means to really live.” ~Mark 8:35 (TLB)

  7. Salut ! Cette publication me béni. C’est vraiment une bonne nouvelle. Elle contribue également à la révision de la manière dont nous servons Dieu,de revoir/se contrôler (état spirituel) avant de lire ou de partager la parole de Dieu avec les autres. La citation de Rick Warren est d’illustration.

    That’s when I can tell I am stressed when my breathing isn’t deep enough. Love it. The Lord knows when breaks are needful.

    In Christ,
