Going to spend the next 40 days during this Lent season praying and studying the topic of power in the New Testament. At Crossroads Church we are going to be praying daily from noon-1pm in the living room. If you care to join us, you are more than welcome to come. Its time to get about the Masters business…no more playing church or playing games with life. Its too precious to spend life on this earth trusting in the things of this earth that bring little return. Keep you sights high and your aim on the Mark of JESUS; He is Your Finish Line.
