Miraculous | Kim Chipman
S~ Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.” Acts 3:6 (NIV)
O~ Peter encountered a lame man who was begging for money. This was Peter’s response.
A~ 2 things:
- The man was begging for money but what he got was healing!! Where in my life am I asking for less than a miracle? I might be missing seeing your power!
- Peter gave what he had – powerfully – in Your precious name. He didn’t say “I don’t have any money” and walk away! He gave what he had in You. Where in my life am I not seeing the power I have in You? Where can I think outside the box beyond what someone is asking for or what I think is needed?
P~ Lord, I want to see You more miraculously in my life! Help me to ask for bold, miraculous things and give what I have in You (which is A LOT!) I love You!
Glorifying Wonder and Amazement | Michelle Myers
S~ When all the people saw him walking and praising God, they recognized him as the same man who used to sit begging at the temple gate called Beautiful, and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him. Acts 3:9-10 (NIV)
O~ Peter had just healed a lame beggar.
A~ Obviously, this man was healed physically, but there was also a spiritual healing as well. Both forms of healing, filled people with wonder and amazement. I want that! I want people to be filled with wonder and amazement, when they see the changes that You are working on in me.
P~ God, thank you for reminding me of the changes that have already occurred. I am not the same person that I used to be. My family definitely recognizes and comments on that. Yet, I want for all of us to experience physical and spiritual healing, so that it can glorify You by leaving people filled with wonder and amazement.
Refreshment | Kelley Deases
S~ Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.” Acts 3:19 (NIV)
O~ Times of refreshing. That sounds like something I want. Something I need. How many commercials out there are peddling refreshment? In a cold beverage, in a delicious meal, in an outing or adventure, in a getaway vacation. But Scripture informs me a true refreshing from the Lord comes from repenting of my sins and turning towards God. And whereas He knit me together and knows me intimately, I suspect He is onto something.
A~ Yesterday, we had a four-hour concerted time of prayer with the staff at Heartland Hope Mission. In that time, we prayed for our clients, ourselves as staff, the favor and success of the Mission to accomplish God’s purposes in serving the poor in Omaha. We took communion together and sought God’s forgiveness for our sins. We collectively and privately asked God to root out any sin, wrong motive, or destructive attitude, so we could be fully free to follow after Him. And I can attest to how refreshing that was — to walk of that place unburdened and restored, ready to take on the next chapter He has in store!
P~ Father, Thank You for employers who pray with and for us. What a rare and valuable benefits package!
Our team would love the privilege of praying for you! Please share how we can lift you in prayer at prayer@DiscoverOneThing.com

Kelley, thanks for sharing that about Heartland Hope Mission. I think it is so neat to hear of their humility and what a testament for their ministry. LOVE it!
