The Woman at the Well; The First Desperate Housewife

At first glance, it is easy to breeze through it, pass judgment and move on. Luann challenges you to hear the story again... from the woman's perspective and uncover some shocking news. This story will come to life as she becomes for you, The Woman at the Well.

We live in a hurting world and every day passes by unaffected. Haunting choices from the past linger in our lives and prevent us from being all that God intends for us to be. Baggage doesn't have to be a reality in your life. God longs to give you an abundant life and He lays out 6 keys to finding it in this passage.

Prayer Can Rock Your World
Do you see prayer as a chore? Is it something you feel obligated to do? Are you always struggling for what to say and how to say it? Guess what? Prayer is not about rituals or reciting flowing phrases, it is about developing a personal relationship with Almighty God. It is about believing that He loves and cares for you as much as He did for Moses and the Israelites.

Throughout the Bible prayer not only changed lives, it rocked the world! We breeze through the pages and skim over the miracles as if they were yesterday's news. God is the same yesterday, today and forever! He longs to intervene in your circumstances, but it takes moving and shaking. Movement from standing on your own to kneeling before the throne and then watching God rock your world!
