If this is Kingdom Kids, who is the King? And who are you?
When a plant is rooted and grounded, it cannot be blown over. When we are rooted in God's love, we can't be blown over by troubles.
Praise is like water that softens the seed of God's spirit in us and is the perfect preparation for our prayers.
When we repent, we are covered with His robe of righteousness. It's like our bullet proof vest!
When we are able to forgive, it's like putting down all of the heavy burdens we have been carrying. God's spirit and prayer flourish in fertile soil, not stony soil.
