Guest speaker Dylan Kirkland closes the series with an impactful message on how you can’t outrun God’s forgiveness.
The world seems full of injustices and moments when it seems irreparably broken. It would be easy to lose hope or live in bitterness. But Jesus followers are called to live with a different perspective that doesn’t give up.

Prayer does amazing things you can’t do on your own. For us to really open up ourselves in prayer to God we musty invite him to see us as we really are. If you are bold enough to be honest with God, healing will come.
Have you ever felt like your prayers are knocking on a door that someone won’t open? If prayer has felt that way to you or does now let the words of Jesus encourage you today.
Can you imagine what it would have been like to sit and listen to Jesus pray? We don’t have to follow a specific formula to talk with God, but practicing different ways to pray can help us find deeper purpose and connection to Him through our prayer time. When Jesus taught his disciples to pray he gave them a prayer outline called “The Lords Prayer.”
This 28 days of prayer begins with an echo of the cry of the disciples for Jesus to teach us how to pray.

Instead of retaliation towards your enemies what if you gave them public praise? With God in your heart it is possible. Jesus has asked us to come at this world in a different perspective. Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.
No-one likes interruptions. Interruptions can sometimes produce disappointment. But what if God is detouring your timeline for something better to come? How many opportunities are we missing when we look at interruptions as an obstacle?
Your ability to walk closely with Jesus is your ability to balance your financial life.
