PRAY: We have a tendency to overcomplicate things – especially our prayers! One way to simplify your prayer life is to pick two phrases or truths from scripture and attach them to your breath pattern. As you inhale, internally say the 1st phrase. As you exhale, say the 2nd phrase.
INHALE: Though my sin is great
EXHALE: Your grace is greater
MEMORIZE: Take this week to memorize John 1:12 with your household. Write it on a sticky note to place on your car dashboard, your bathroom mirror, or wherever you will view it often.
John 1:12 “Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.”
WORSHIP: Listen to this song called The Gospel by Ryan Stevenson.

The Fallout of the Fall:

- Jesus laid His life down
