Pastor’s Pen

     Spiritual growth should be something that each Christian strives to accomplish.  Spiritual growth has many aspects such as prayer, searching the Scriptures, our attitude, and the deeds that are a natural outflow from this growth.  Prayer is often thought of as a way of blessing our food, asking for God’s protection for the night, or even informing God of what is occurring in our lives.  But prayer is much more than these simple thoughts. It is a powerful way to combat the enemy, and the precious way to praise God and thank God for all He has done!  Our request can certainly be made known to our God that cares for us, but why not try to thank Him today? Have you told your Heavenly Father that you love Him? Take a moment now and give Him the glory!
