Raw Prayer

Wed, 07/13/2016 - 9:55am -- Rob
How polished should our prayers be when we pray to God?  It's one of many questions Christians, and many non-Christians alike, carry with them in life. 

Recently, I was reminded about how beautiful the prayer of a newborn Christian can be.  It's a prayer spoken from the heart, in their own natural vernacular (which likely isn't politically correct, and may include swear words, unrefined verbiage, poor grammar, and more linguistic faux pas).  It's a prayer that's raw, transparent, authentic, personal and speaks directly to God's heart. 

Nation-Building Prayers

“So that with one mind and one voice, you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” - Romans 15:6

As Christians, we believe in the power of intercessory prayer. As the late minister James Edwin Orr once said, “No great spiritual awakening has begun anywhere in the world apart from united prayer.” Across the nation, leaders are hearing the Lord say that the U.S. is going to experience a great awakening.

Capitol Prayer

Mon, 03/28/2016 - 6:56pm -- Rob

Last fall, I joined a small prayer team from Indianapolis praying on site on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C.  During our trip, Pastor Yaqub, our team leader, shared that he has led prayer on site at over 20 state capitols around the United States.

Recently, Yaqub contacted me to share which capitols the Lord is directing him to lead prayer teams to pray at in 2016.  The first is Jefferson City, Missouri (this week).  Later in the year, the capitols of West Virginia, Wisconsin, and possibly one other state will be scheduled for on site prayer.

Waiting for the Right Time to Pray?

"Prayer is the master strategy that God gives for the defeat and rout of Satan." - Wesley L. Duewel
 
It's no secret that prayer is the most powerful weapon that God has given to us as Christians.  It's the one thing that Satan is powerless against!  God has provided us with a way to change the world; all while He changes us while we pray.  Yet, in our day and age, many Christians are fooled into thinking, "I'll pray when I feel like praying.  I'll get around to it when I feel like it." 

Cultivating a Child's Tender, Prayerful, Heart

Wed, 11/12/2014 - 1:08pm -- Rob
One of the greatest gifts a loving adult can give a child is an example of how to pray. 

Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.
- Ephesians 6:4

Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it
. - Proverbs 22:6
 

He Does It. So Can You!

Recently, I listened to a message by Jerry Jenkins, one of the authors of the Left Behind book series and many other books you can find in Christian book stores.  At one point in his message, he shared about a conversation he had with Billy Graham; while helping him write his memoirs. 
 
Jenkins asked Billy about what he does to maintain his own spiritual disciplines. 
 

When Is It Appropriate to Quit?

Fri, 10/03/2014 - 2:49pm -- Rob
I'm concerned that we as Christians have allowed our culture to have far too great of an influence on how we pray (and whether or not we even choose to pray).  Instant gratification has become deeply woven into our social and personal fabric.  We're quick to lose focus, change how we pray, stop praying, etc. if we don't see God answering or responding to our prayers immediately.  We can lose out on a LOT when we stop!
