The Bottom Line

Dear Friends,

I have not spent much time delving into the written or spoken work of well-known pastor, speaker, author, and broadcaster Tony Evans. You may be more familiar with him than I. However, a friend shared a quote of his that I thought was extremely powerful, and I thought I'd share it with you:

The bottom line is pray.


The bottom line is pray. If you're tired, sick, emotionally overwhelmed - pray. If you're on cloud nine and life seems perfect - pray. If you lack direction - pray. If you doubt that prayer makes any difference - pray. If the circumstances of your life are out of your control - pray. If the circumstances of your life seem well within your control - pray even harder. Whatever you do - pray.


We had just touched on prayer in our sermon Sunday, so I thought it was timely to mention prayer here in our Tuesday email. But then I thought, as Tony Evans implies in this quote, that it is always timely to pray, no matter what the last sermon was about or what's going on in your life. Pray. Get in touch with and continue that ultimate connection. Establish and deepen that personal relationship. It really is the bottom line.

Grace and Hope to you,

Pastor Duane
