S - Sit Quietly, Seek God, Listen for His Response & Act on What He Says
God is our source and prayer is powerful. Spending quality time alone with God is vital. Jesus frequently withdrew from the crowds and the worries of the day and went to a quiet place to commune with the Father. Prayer is our partnership link with God, a wonderful synergy between the Creator and the created. As we become grounded in prayer, an interconnectedness of purpose is realized, unity is formed, and transformation is revealed. Spending time in the presence of God is transformative through prayer. Declare God's promises over your life. Once we have received our direction from God, we must obey and act accordingly. My "Just PRAY" video series was one of the first products I produced. I wanted people to become empowered by the Words of God through prayer.
God Dwells In The Midst of OUR PRAYERD

Q - Quality & Quantity - Giving the Most of Your Best
Our God is a giving God. He always gives us His best. The Lord didn't give the Israelites day-old manna. He doesn't give us yesterday's mercy. Most importantly, we became a new creation in Christ Jesus. Your life gets better by giving your best to others. "Now this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so abundance for every good deed...." Remember, whatever you do for others, God will most assuredly do for you."
- II Corinthians 9: 6-8
U - Unified in Christ - Stay Connected
Our position at all times is to be vertical with God and horizontally with our neighbor. "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and all your mind. This is the great and foremost commandment. The second is like it, you shall love your neighbor as yourself."
Matthew 22:36-40 NASB
A - Attentive - Be Attentive to the Needs of Others
Maya Angelou wrote, "People won't care how much you know until they know how much you care." There are many people that we will meet as we travel on our journey. However, there are only a select group of people that God has designed for us to connect with. These connections are part of our assignment. Be sensitive to the leadership of the Holy Spirit. Pray for clarity. - Galatians 6:2 ; Hebrew 13:16
D - Don't Give Up, Don't Quit & Don't Limit God
You must EMBRACE the Anointing that dwells on the inside of you. Look to the Lord and HIs Strength and seek His face. You are MORE than a Conqueror. "Let's not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap a harvest if we don't grow weary."
- Galatians 6: 9
