David Young’s poems on the Gospel of John are a delight to read. This is not simply rhyme and meter, cadence and verse going on here. With a pastor’s heart and insights, David offers up theological…Continue

SCRIPTURE MEMORY AND YOUR PRAYER LIFE

Can you see an orchard with trees covered with luscious fruit? I'll let you decide what kind of fruit you see. Whatever the fruit, those trees were almost certainly grafted. Any fruit tree has the DNA of two kinds of apple or apricot or whatever fruit. So the desired variety must be grafted into the existing root system either by budding or scion grafting.Something like that happens as God's word is grafted into our lives. In John 15:7-8 Jesus said,“If you remain in me and my words remain in…See More

HAVING HOPE

A powerful Scripture relating to hope is Romans 15:4.“For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.”Think with me for a moment about the last two words of this verse. What does it mean to have hope? In this scripture having hope should not be interpreted as having the possibility of hope. There are places and times where having hope could be interpreted that way. When Jesus died…See More

LOVE IS AT THE HEART

I just finished writing a book on AGAPE, The Infinite, Ultimate Love of God (Not yet released) So I was especially attracted to Mary Harwell Sayler's Prayer-a-Phrase of 1 Corinthians 13, The Love Chapter, applying it to the writing life in her book, Christian Writer's Guide.God's love in us is at the heart of preaching, bearing witness for Christ, teaching, and powerful praying. And yes it must be at the heart of Christian writing. I am convinced this will bless you as it has me.“Though I speak…See More

THE SAFETY NET OF HOPE

We are told in Hebrews 6 that the anchor of our souls is firm and secure. Such hope serves as a kind safety net in our daily lives.Hope that reaches beyond this world will be a Safety Net From Fears that assail us. A trapeze artist must put in thousands of hours of practice to be able to amaze the crowds who gather to watch. But she would never be able to practice, especially her most difficult aerobatics, without a safety net. If our future is absolutely secure in the arms of Jesus all of life…See More

THE CHRISTIAN WRITER'S GUIDE

In an earlier blog I asked if there were any books written on Christian writing. Several of you suggested books dealing specifically with Christian writing. One of the books suggested to me was The Christian Writer's Guide, by Mary Harwell Sayler. What a wonderful surprise this book turned out to be! I, of course, had asked the question thinking somewhat academically about the differences in writing in the relationship and calling of Christ. But this book is satisfying longings I did not know I…See More

HOPE IS PERSONAL

Our hope, God's hope is personal. In his 1939 Christmas message to the nation King George VI read Minnie Louise Haskins’ poem, God Knows, given him by his daughter, Elizabeth.“I said to the man who stood at the Gate of the Year,‘Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.’And he replied, "Go out into the darkness, and put your hand into the hand of God.That shall be to you better than light, and safer than a known way.’While we look forward to life beyond this life, our hope is…See More

ANCHORED IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD

Where is your anchor fixed? In my first post in this blog I referred to the storm in acts 27. Let me call your attention to something a little unusual in that account. Still in the night after they had discovered the danger of a coast they could crash into, some sailors sought to escape the ship. They lowered a boat on the pretense of laying out anchors from the bow. They had already cast four anchors from the stern. They needed four anchors to slow their progress from the wind and waves. These…See More

BOOKS ON CHRISTIAN WRITING

Earlier when I asked if there were any books on Christian writing, someone answered that books on writing were books on writing. A book on Christian writing would be like a book on Christian auto mechanics. This was a clever picture. I immediately thought of Robert Pirsig’s book, Zen And The Art of Motorcycle Repair.There is a sense, of course, in which that is absolutely true. Writing is a craft. We would not expect subject matter to effect it. Most of us have been moved by art depicting…See More

THE ANCHOR OF THE SOUL

For some time I have been planning to write a book on our hope in Christ. So I have decided to give you a foretaste in a regular blog. I am calling this new blog, “THE ANCHOR OF THE SOUL." Have you ever been in the storm from Acts 27? I did not ask if you have read it, although I recommend that you read it. I am asking if your life has been besieged by such a storm. It began with a gentle southerly breeze promising that the troubled seas were behind them. Then Euroclydon fell on them without…See More

David, I'm sorry to take so long to get back to you - have been sick for a couple of weeks and not on PN.  Try this link for the China prayer cast - I got it directly from YouTube.

David, apologies for taking so long to get back to you - my recent out-of-state move has pretty much dominated my time and I'm only now getting back to being on PN consistently.  I appreciate what you shared and the heart of integrity behind it.  You are a great example to me! 

I would also say that praying for the SC justices by name and simply leaving in God's hands how he wants to work in their lives and through their rulings is a very valid way to pray.  The strength of our prayers is not in the words, but in the One to whom we pray - not that you need to hear that from me!!
