According to a new online survey from LifeWay Research…
We pray for our friends, families, and sometimes our enemies.
We ask for ‘Divine help’ in times of trouble but rarely praise God’s greatness.
And we seldom pray for non-believers, or even our favorite sports team?
“Most people pray when they need the ‘red phone’ (to God) for help…BUT their prayer life isn’t a habit rooted in a relationship with God…”
-Ed Stetzer (Executive director of LifeWay Research)

Dana Parris, the owner of Just Cookin’ in Dallas, NC featured a “What Are We Worth Week,” where she decided to let her customers decide what the food was worth and what to pay at the end of the meal. http://goo.gl/zbJ8Z0

Middle class still MOST charitable…
New research showing that poor and middle-income households donate MORE than their share to charity. The wealthiest Americans, not so giving…
