Is it possible to live in an atmosphere of answered prayer? by Archie Parrish

Archie_Parrish"Delight yourselves in God, yes, find your joy in him at all times. Have a reputation for gentleness, and never forget the nearness of your Lord. Don't worry over anything whatever; tell God every detail of your needs in earnest and thankful prayer, and the peace of God which transcends human understanding, will keep constant guard over your hearts and minds as they rest in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 4:4-7 Phillips).

Reading for Lent: Psalm 51

treesky1Generous in love - God, give grace! Huge in mercy - wipe out my bad record.Scrub away my guilt, soak out my sins in your laundry.I know how bad I've been; my sins are staring me down.

You're the One I've violated, and you've seen it all, seen the full extent of my evil. You have all the facts before you; whatever you decide about me is fair.I've been out of step with you for a long time, in the wrong since before I was born.

Now, if you aren't familiar with this lump of coal/gem of a show, it follows the zany exploits of Kenny Powers, aging minor league baseball player from Shelby, North Carolina. Currently playing with the fictional Myrtle Beach Mermen, Kenny is struggling to deal with new fatherhood and to reclaim his status as "team leader," despite the rise of a despicable nemesis named Ivan - who has a haircut that is even WORSE than Kenny's own curly mullet.
