How to Kickstart Your Year With Prayer — Alex Kendrick
As we are a few weeks into 2020, there is still plenty of time to find a place in your home to spend time with God each day. Read a chapter or two of Scripture. Then spend time in prayer.
Adoration — Start by acknowledging God for who He is (Creator, Provider, Protector, Healer, Judge, etc.).
Confession — Get honest about calling sin what it really is—sin.
Thanksgiving — Express your gratefulness to the Lord for all He has done in your life.
Supplication — This is where you make requests of the Lord. But in doing so, make sure your requests are honoring to Him.
Squirrels repeatedly target man’s Jeep, cause $700 worth of damage
Colorado is known for its cold winters and local squirrels are taking out the frustration on local residents. One Colorado man said squirrels have squeezed into the inner workings of his vehicle three times and caused about $700 worth of damage. Gary Seago of Windsor said the trouble began in late November, when his Jeep was making unusual noises and mechanics discovered an animal, likely a squirrel, had chewed a fuel injector plug in half. Seago said repairs were made, but the same part was again destroyed by a suspected squirrel the next day. He said the squirrels returned for a third time a few weeks later and destroyed another, more expensive part in the engine compartment. Seago said he is now trying to keep the squirrels away with deterrents including moth balls, strobe lights, and high-pitched noises.

How encouraging! If you’re struggling for an answer to prayer, do NOT lose hope!
I saw this today on the Protect Young Eyes Facebook page, and believe it is very important! Especially if you’re tired of seeing ads for the things you just searched for showing up everywhere you go on the internet?
I recently watched a L’ange hair video (this is Betsy) and found my feed inundated with L’ange hair care ads for the next week! Or maybe you share a computer with family members and prefer your son not see advertisements for tummy control undergarments, because you just so happened to be searching for this exact product 10 minutes prior (he probably doesn’t want to see them either).
Remember, you’re being tracked. Websites drop “cookies” on your devices to keep track of where you’ve been. Then, they try to show you more ads for the items you just visited.
It’s referred to as “behavioral” or “interest-based” advertising. Not everyone loves it.
Would you like to turn off interest-based advertising? Here’s what you do. On every device you use to access the internet, open its browser. Then, visit this link and allow the ensuing site to scan your browser for your preferences. Opt-out of as much as you like. Remember, it’s your data!
