Real Men...Pray?

Academy Award winning actor Denzel Washington believes that a good way to make sure you pray every morning is to place your shoes “way under the bed at night.” Doing that, he says, ensures that you “gotta get on your knees in the morning.”

In an inspirational speech to a group of young actors, Denzel encouraged the group of student actors to use their talent for good and never forget to pray.

I pray that you all put your shoes way under the bed at night so that you gotta get on your knees in the morning to find them. And while you’re down there thank God for grace, mercy and understanding. If you just start thinking of all the things you’ve got to say thank you for, that’s a day. That’s easily a full day!” he said.

Give thanks to Jesus, for He is good. Today in prayer, spend some extra time “looking for your shoes under the bed” and thank the Lord for all His many blessings.

Sometimes we focus so much on what we don’t have that we fail to see, appreciate, and use what we do have!

Enjoy these amazing photos from last weekend’s incredible Thanksgiving Sunday Supper (click here) which turned out to be one of the largest, biggest and best that New Venture has sponsored. With hundreds upon hundreds of meals served to the homeless, seniors and military, with haircuts, free clothing, & a terrific time experienced by all. Thank you New Venture for making a lasting difference in the lives of so many!

May God Bless you and yours, with a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
