A Guest Editorial

Each day of our lives we are set against a backdrop of worldly matters that we must attend to. We work, some have children, some have house-work, some have grocery shopping, and other essential daily activities that are routine. These routine activities are essential in fulfilling our responsibilities as humans to our selves and our families. I look at each day as another day on a journey towards greatness in Christ. It is yet another day that God has given us to fulfill our worldly obligations, but most importantly it is another day that God has given us to fulfill our spiritual obligations. Each days journey is filled with temptations, and filled with moments where we can decide to pray to God for strength in keeping our path straight and narrow. In Acts 6:4 it says, “But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.” This scripture indicates an importance to continually pray and to be given to that cause. In your daily journey through life you should consider that prayer is a very important part of serving God. You have a relationship with God through Christ for a reason!!
