From Wimpy Prayers to Bold Praying

Wed, 09/17/2014 - 11:04am -- Rob
Most weeks, I type out a note to encourage and embolden fellow Christians to pray and go deeper in their personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
This week, I offer to you a recording of Prayer Leader David Butts titled, From Wimpy Prayers to Bold Praying.  It runs around 35 minutes in duration, but I promise you that your faith will be challenged and encouraged as you listen.


Praying with Your Feet

Wed, 08/27/2014 - 8:27am -- Rob
This past weekend, I had the privilege of prayer walking the grounds of some local schools with area residents, ministry leaders, students, and even an alumnus of the schools!  While many simply consider the concept of prayer walking (walking while praying) or praying on site, just another way that one can pray, I can tell you that people participating left excited, enthused, and invigorated!  Yes, invigorated.  That's a word I seldom, if ever, see paired with the word, prayer.

You Can't Hurry Relationship

"Many want the Spirit's power but not the Spirit's purity. The Holy Spirit does not rent out His attributes. His power is never separated from His glorious Self." - James A. Stewart, Heaven's Throne Gift

"Why is it that countless believers seem to stand powerless before a world desperately needing what we claim to have? Why does the church have so little impact? Why are so many Christians so frustrated?

Beyond In Case of Emergency...

Attention spans in America are at historically short levels in our day and age.  A sound bite here, a brief video, a short news clip there, a quick word of gossip during a meal, and many people can feel they're on top of the news, have a handle on life, or have all the knowledge they need to appear intelligent or knowledgeable amongst their peers.  
Our short attention spans are not impressive to God.  One of the big reasons is that those same short attention spans transfer over into our relationship, or maybe more accurately, lack-of-relationship with Him.

A Way to Pray Through Scripture

Tue, 08/05/2014 - 1:24pm -- Rob
One way to teach and encourage prayer is to model it for others.  It's not done with a mindset of, "Hey, look at what I can do," but is done out of a humble desire to love and encourage others to pray and practice a similar manner of prayer within their own devotions and ongoing personal relationships with God through Jesus Christ.

Wise Words About Prayer

R.A.Torrey was a pastor and evangelist in the late 1800's and early 1900's.  Early in his service to the Lord, he joined with D.L. Moody and soon was evangelizing around the world.  Some say that God brought over 100,000 souls to faith in Jesus through Torrey's evangelistic ministry.
