A grain of sand

September 3rd, 2019

“How precious to me are your thoughts, O God. How vast is the sum of them. Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand on the seas. When I awake, O God, I am still with you.”

“Howard Thurman, the prolific African American preacher and mystic lived to be 81 years old and prayed Psalm 139 every day of his adult life. Could you pray Psalm 139 every day for the rest of your life? Could you pray any scripture or prayer every day for the rest of your life?”

Listen as Rev. Dr. Frank A. Thomas, preacher, teacher, scholar, lecturer, author and master coach teaches us how we, too, can and should pray scripture for the rest of our lives.

“What is your one verse?”
