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

PRAYER AND SPIRITUAL WARFARE

Spiritual activity always seems bring spiritual attack. No one plans a mission trip without facing a barrage of demonic distractions. Years ago I went to a Continuing Witness Training Clinic. That week our bank contacted my wife that we were hundreds of dollars in overdraft. It was a mistake on the part of the bank. But they didn't figure that out until the next week. If I remember right my poor wife also had to deal with a plumbing crisis that week. I believe God allows such spiritual attack,…See More

WHEN PRAYER DIMINISHES

When crises come like a series of category 5 hurricanes driving millions of people from their homes people pray, for a little while. Many of you remember that large numbers of people were driven to their knees in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks on 9/11/2001. A close friend of mine led a citywide prayer meeting last week on 9/11. 5 people showed up to pray.When we see things like this we are tempted to be cynical. And while I am in that number, I must admit that is a wrong response. We…See More

"I enjoyed your review of Simple Prayer. This is good insight. While over the years I have found people wanting practical instruction, the Holy Spirit is a better teacher."

"Great tips, David! One of the things that has always stood in my way of praying faithfully for people - even family and close friends - is the felt need to bring to God long, detailed prayers describing circumstances, making requests, etc. …"

"I couldn't agree more, David!  I think that it's valuable to hold some of our thoughts along these lines a bit loosely.  The ones who dig in with strident voices tend, it seems, to hurt the cause rather than to help it.  And…"

"Very insightful, Andrew. Thank you. In fact, I have begun reading Timothy Keller's Making Sense of God. Reading it makes me feel like I have been influenced too much by the world the, flesh, and the devil, via the media. I believe both…"

Andrew R. Wheeler commented on David Young's blog post ARE YOU DISTURBED?
"The church at large has indeed lost much of its prophetic voice in our society.  Perhaps we have become too much like the world.  Perhaps in our (rightful) desire to welcome all into the family of God, we've lost touch with the…"

ARE YOU DISTURBED?

I doubt seriously if I am the only person to be confused and disturbed about things we see around us. I am horrified by the bizarre extremes of the sexual revolution being forced down our throats. At the same time those who would to some extent agree about that are proclaiming America first, which sounds to me like selfishness encoded in national policy. I am aware this will offend some whom I love. But the Bible is clear about this. God is a globalist. “For God so loved the world.” Are you in…See More

PRAY THE CHURCH ROLL

I have been thinking about writing a book on prayer in a church family. My working, or maybe thinking, title is Praying Together. I can get excited about it, but I am not sure I will get to it. I want to write two more books before I start it. And my time is limited. So I want to set some of the ideas out to you in my blog.Our church is in a difficult place right now. We are without a pastor. And for this and other reasons my wife and I have felt we need to pray as we have never prayed before.…See More

Andrew R. Wheeler commented on David Young's blog post PRAYING FOR FRUITFULNESS
"How wonderful the balance in this passage is!  Not only is fruitfulness the purpose of prayer, but it's also the outgrowth of prayer.  Not only should much of our prayer center around fruitfulness for the kingdom (as opposed to being…"

PRAYING FOR FRUITFULNESS

I have been very moved lately with the promise in John 15:7,8. I started to write a blog post on praying for fruitfulness. Then I discovered that about a year ago I wrote a blog post on this but never posted it. So I am offering it to you today.Modern Americans often have the strangest notion of prayer. Much prayer in these days is an extension of our materialist convictions. You can hear preaching, here and in many countries around the world, that poses provision as the primary purpose of…See More

PRAY FOR EVERYONE

Posted on September 15, 2017 at 4:29pm 0 Comments

God calls to us to pray for everyone. 1 Timothy 2:1 reads,

“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people.”

This is one of those scriptures that you have to stop and ask how we do that. Is this scripture calling us to pray prayers like, “God save the whole world. Amen”? I believe God is urging this on us so we will make a legitimate effort to pray…

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!!
