"Prayer itself is a reminder of how good God is... The opportunity to connect directly with the Creator of the universe is a gift of grace. God loves to hear our prayers, no matter our word choice. Psalm 88 is proof! So when we experience feelings of desperation and we're tempted to plunge into despair, we must remember to pray before any other action." Prayer trumps panic. Every. Time. - One More Step
"Our culture has accepted two huge lies: The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle, you must fear them or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don’t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate." Great quote even if you don't agree otherwise with Rick Warren.
