It appears that the men in all three Malachi Dad classes are being very attentive this term. Almost no side-grouping and eyes on the teacher have been constant thus far. Now, if I can get them to fully believe in the power of prayer and to submit their prayer requests.

I think for a lot of the men they don't 'truly' believe their prayers will be answered or can't think of any prayer requests that are important enough to submit.

I have often told them no prayer is too big nor too small and if you can't think of anything to pray for they have in that a prayer request. Pray God will open their hearts to see their need to be drawn closer to God through spiritual disciplines.

Please pray God will draw these men close to Him especially in Dixon.


To Him be the glory!
