Impacting Cities & Communities thru Prayer
A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
"In this modern world we live in, love is ended before it's begun." Commitment--an old-fashioned word--is still the key to lasting marriages and enduring relationships. God's love is the ultimate example.
“Thrice blest whose lives are faithful prayers, Whose loves in higher love endure;
What souls possess themselves so pure, or is there blessedness like theirs?”
- Alfred, Lord Tennyson
Waterfalls of time cannot extinguish love’s eternal flame.
Rivers of catastrophe cannot drown its commitment.
Love is stronger than death—love endures forever.
Love hangs on through hours, days, weeks, and years.
Love perseveres through glacial passage of time.
Love is infinitely patient—it never gives up.
In life’s waiting room, we calmly anticipate God’s tomorrow.
The trial of our faith will determine if we truly believe God.
God is being patient with us—let’s be patient with Him.
At Calvary, He crossed His heart to express His undying love.
Our Savior Jesus paid for His bride with His lifeblood.
We can prove our love for Him by obedience.
God has planned a marriage feast to honor the Bridegroom.
Engagement gives time to get ready for the wedding.
Before we know it, the great day will arrive.
Jacob spent the next seven years working to pay for Rachel.
But his love for her was so strong that it seemed to him but a few days.
Genesis 29:20 NLT
