For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all men— the testimony given in its proper time. And for this purpose I was appointed a herald and an apostle— I am telling the truth, I am not lying— and a teacher of the true faith to the Gentiles. I want men everywhere to lift up holy hands in prayer without anger or disputing. 1 Timothy 2:5-8


• Passionate prayer is often accompanied by physical expressions.
• God wants you to obey him completely and immediately.
• Your goal should be to have a right relationship with God and others.


Gracious Father, I lift up my voice and my hands in praise and prayer. I yield my dreams and plans to you. I ask that you will direct my decisions and conversation. Help me to continue to develop healthy and lasting relationships. In Jesus Name, Amen!
