    I’m in for the challenge! We started this on May first after you spoke in Ft Worth and Greenwood Baptist Church. It opened my eyes to how God IS with me and I see him so much more when I kneel and pray each morning and night. Thank you for sharing.

    I am accepting your challenge!

    I always pray in the morning, but never on my knees. I’m not that much older than you, but I have trouble kneeling. Serious trouble. But I’m going to do it anyway! I can surely bear the pain for a few minutes, and you have inspired me to do this!

    Love you!!

      Dear Heavenly Father, please come to Michelle’s rescue. We are asking for complete and total healing for her son. Lord, you are the Jehovah Rapha. Nothing is too hard for You. I claim Jeremiah 17:14 for Michelle’s son, “Heal me oh Lord and I will be healed. For you are the one that I praise!” Lord, we praise you in advance for giving the doctors wisdom and healing Michelle’s son beyond what is human possible. In Jesus’ name, amen.

    Hello Jen,
    You inspire me. I heard you on the Frank Sontag show on 6/14/16. I love the Lord with all my heart, soul, mind and strength and I would love to get closer to him. He is the air I breath. He means so much to me.

    I’m going to take your challenge and I will get on my knees and pray to my Daddy when I roll out of bed at 5:00am in the morning. It’s so hard for me to get up in the morning but the Lord gives me the strength to do so.

    I had such an overwhelming experience from you when I heard you on Mr. Sontag’s. I was in tears. Good tears of course.

    Thank you for sharing your life with Jesus.

    I know this challenge is already over, but I heard about it just 3 days ago. It has been almost constantly on my mind since then. I feel like the Lord wants me to step out and stretch with this challenge. I plan to start this on Oct. 1. I have a feeling the Lord has something for me to not just learn, but experience.
