GREATER BY MERCYME
Have you ever been asked to pray for somebody out loud, in front of people? Kinda puts a little pressure on, doesn't it? It's easy to want to sound spiritual, reverent, and articulate. Not just for God, but for the people that are listening.
I'll admit that there have been times when I'm in a group, and we're all taking turns praying out loud. When my turn is next, I'm not sure that I'm even really listening to what the person next to me is saying. I'm thinking about what I'm going to say. Don't want to do it wrong, you know. I have some friends that outright refuse to pray out loud. They are embarrased.
There’s a story in the Bible about a father who is worried about his son. (Mark 9:14-29) His son had been sick since he was a young boy. Turns out that the son had an evil spirit possessing him. The father knows that his boy needs help but he hasn’t found anyone who can do anything to cure him. That is, until Jesus. The father said to Jesus, “But if you can do anything, take pity on us and help us.” “If you can?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.” Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”
Joey Perez from Berean Baptist Church called me out in the #BibleChallenge. So here's my response.
Do you stand at the refrigerator and ask the kids day after day, "what would you like for lunch?" Here is a handy printable. I'm going to tape it right on the fridge!
If all the back to school costs and higher grocery prices have been getting the best of you lately, maybe this new song from Chris August will make you smile :)
Just Chris August and his friends being silly :)
We go outside and we think,
"I don't really need sunscreen."
"I want to tan!"
"I'm young, it's OK!"
"I don't burn easily. The sun won't really damage anything."
This video is fascinating about how our skin looks under UV light. Then it shows how our skin looks with sunscreen on part of our face. Whoa!
This might be my favorite conversation we've ever had on SOS Radio. Chuck Norris talks about his faith, he talks about overcoming pride, Washington DC and his favorite Chuck Norris facts. [email protected]

Believe it or not, out of the first 18 years of our child’s life, almost 6 and a half years of that time will be spend in school! That’s over 1/3 of their journey will be outside of our personal care! That challenges me as a parent to brainstorm new ways to supplement my child’s education and do a better job living out my values. It challenges me to make time each day to read with my kids and carve out time for their homework this year.
Danny Gokey was on The SOS Morning Show talking about preventing depression and finding hope in tough circumstances!
