Servanthood By Victor and Diana Morales

The Path to Great


Leadership
An argument started among the disciples
as to which of them would be the greatest.
Jesus, knowing their thoughts, took a little
child and had him stand beside him. Then he
said to them, “Whoever welcomes this little
child in my name welcomes me; and whoever
welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me.
For he who is least among you all—he is the
greatest.” (Luke 9:46-48)

Whether they are employees, brothers and


sisters, a circle of friends, or teammates,
the age-old question seems to always pop
up: “Who is the greatest of us all?” It has
been the root cause of divorce, fall-outs in
families, and ruined friendships. Competi-
tion, rivalry and envy have been around for if we are to be the greatest, we need to be

How to Pray for Your By Diana Morales

Children
Many parents ask us the same question,
“Can you please pray for my kids?” “I don’t
really know if I’m praying right or specifical-

our children’s or grandchildren’s eyes, our
entire world takes on a whole new mean-
ing. In a moment of time, their future and
well-being become the most important
things in our lives.

The Vision…

The VICTORY!
With God ALL things are possible!
Matthew 19:26
If you have never given your life to the Lord or received Jesus into your heart—this is
a prayer you can pray and receive His free gift of salvation. God’s Word says that If you
confess with your mouth that “Jesus is Lord” and you believe with your heart He rose
from the dead—you will be saved. (Romans 10:9-10) This is the only way to get to
heaven. If you want to experience this hope to live forever with God, pray this prayer:

Dear Lord Jesus, come into my heart. Take away my stony heart, and give me a heart of flesh.
I repent of my sins and receive your free gift of salvation for my life. I turn my back on the
world’s way of living and turn my life over to you. Thank you, Jesus for coming into my heart
today.

If you prayed this prayer for the first time, we would love to give you a free gift. Please
call us at 686-9925 or e-mail us at info@savedmagazine.org and tell us, “I just prayed the
prayer of salvation.” The Bible says that all heaven is rejoicing over YOU! Praise God!
