Hello Fellow Memorizers:
It has been a few weeks since my last post as I have been praying and pondering just what God wanted me to begin memorizing next, and now I feel He is calling His believers to a time of Praise. Many of the prophets are saying that this is a season we should not only be in much prayer but also be in daily praise to God.
In these days of great chaos, uncertainty and social unrest we need more than ever to keep our minds focused on God, His word and prayer, but I am also sensing in my spirit that He is calling us to be praising Him daily now more than ever, for we are told many times in His word to praise His name.
Therefore, beginning next week we will begin a new weekly memorization program titled “Praise Pause”.
This will be a 30 week program, where we will memorize verses that lead us to praise His name. Since we have just finished memorizing verses on the Names of God, this program will be a good way for us to offer praise to Him daily using one of His many names to do so.
Our ministry has published a book titled “Praise Pause” which I will be using each week to share verses from for us to memorize.
If you would like to purchase the paperback book or e-book, just visit the Bookstore page on the website where you can purchase a copy or copies securely through Amazon.
Blessings to you and I do hope you will be joining me each week in this new memorization program.
Let’s all unite our hearts and voices to offer praises to our God daily using one of His many names!
L.J. Atkinson, President
