I’ve known Sister Bette Cox for a little while now and though I don’t get to her site often, I do try and make the rounds and spend a little time there.

Esther's Petition

“Handle them carefully, for words have more power than atom bombs.”

The following list began one recent evening as I was praying. I asked the Lord, “Would you please speak to me?”

Revealers      Directors     Commanders     Preventers     Protectors
Comforters     …
